Speaking of leopard print tights (in my previous post), here I am wearing them again with a charcoal coloured angle cut skirt from Zara and bright pink blazer from Zara as well. Boots are from Top Shop, and I finished the look off with a vintage belt and necklace.
My sunglasses are a new and exciting addition to my eyewear collection. I have never owned proper sunglasses because I could never decide what to get, and I’ve always been too afraid of breaking or losing them. This pair is from an AMAZING eyewear store called Opticianado located in the Junction. They specialize in iconic unused vintage eyewear (mine), as well as contemporary independent designers. They have such a unique selection that definitely stands out from all the others. Check it out at 2919 Dundas St. W. JD

Sometimes the best part of an outfit are the shoes. I found this pair at Winners on Bloor and I’m glad I bought them. I wasn’t sure if I’d wear them enough but I’ve been wearing them quite a bit this summer. The platform toe makes the 4 inch rise bearable…even though I’m convinced I’ll be in orthopedics in 5 years time.
These pants are by Wilfred from Aritzia and I love wearing them because they’re soft and comfortable. This top was purchased at a thrift store in Belgium for 4 Euro. I’m actually wearing it backwards because I didn’t feel like sporting a high neck. See what it looks like non-backwards here. Belt is also vintage from my mom’s closet. JD
A while back I showed you a few pieces I took from my Aunt’s closet over Thanksgiving weekend. I scored an awesome purse here, and a silk shirt here.
This long floral skirt was found in her closet as well. It was a few sizes off so I had it taken to the tailor shop for a perfect fit. It’s fun walking around in a long flowing skirt, and a nice change from the everyday wardrobe.
I paired it with my H&M lace-up booties ($69), top from Joe Fresh ($12), and boyfriend blazer from Suzy Shier ($30). I added gold buttons to the blazer to give it a little somethin’ extra. My belt is vintage. What do you think about the long skirt trend – ugly or cool? JD
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I skip down the street singing this tune and often will throw in a couple tro lo lo’s (do me a favor and click the link) just for good measure. Now, I am not talking about Christmas, I am talking about pre-Christmas markdowns and the promise of everything being at leas 40% off. Ahhh markdows. The buyers worst nightmare and my real life fairy tale. I went into H&M before lunch and right before my very eyes was this pink dress with a big $10 sign. As I had told myself that I was not going to make any clothing purchases through the month of December, I put it back on the rack. Then I had this grand idea. If I don’t continue on to purchase lunch and use the $10 for the dress instead, it will cancel itself out. The only loss is the 500 calories I would have consumed – WIN WIN SITUATION!
