Someone told me I looked like Little House on the Prairie in this outfit, but CM stuck up for me and said “no, it’s a 70s inspired look.” Thanks CM, I think so too.
I love the look of a long 70s inspired maxi dress. I found this floral one at Forever 21 and was impressed with its quality. I paired it with my lace vest from H&M ($39), a vintage gold belt ($10), and platform shoes by Top Shop from LAB consignment ($99).

After the Conair beauty lounge, we made our way to Power Ball 13 – one of the city’s largest charity events in support of The Power Plant art gallery. The annual gala raises vital funds for exhibitions and public programs.
The venue was packed with interesting people, contemporary art exhibits, DJs, and porchetta on a spit. It was a gorgeous night so we spent most of it mingling on the outdoor patio. Oh warm summer nights on a patio, please stay with us for a while.

Outfit details for CM:

The chignon was a fun hair-do, except it was so big it stuck to the velcro tent wall, and hit the roof of the cab while getting in.

I wasn’t sure if I would take to the colour blocking trend a la Jil Sander, but after composing a few very colourful outfits – I’m now a fan. Don’t get me wrong, I love my muted greys and tonal tans, but busting out colour with such gusto feels GREAT! I wore this outfit last night and went out for some vino on Ossington. While the rest of the world watched the Stanley Cup game, CM and I engaged in laughs, gossip, and shop talk. Who won the game again? JD
