Shopping at Value Village aka VV Boutique is always better outside of the city, so I went on a mission and hit up VV north and south of the city. I found some pretty sweet stuff. My favourite find was a pair of never-been-worn white leather shoes. Love them!! They have a perforated pattern pattered and are lace-up. I also found this floral and lace swing top that I belted with a vintage gold belt I already owned. I’m also wearing my yoga jeans by Second Denim that I can’t get enough of. Sunglasses are from Opticianado – the coolest sunglasses store in town. JD
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).
Nail polish is Mint Candy Apply by Essie. JD
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

New heels got me wobbly…I fell.
This is my ‘strolling the city’ weekend look. I pieced together something warm, but not too warm, that married comfort and style. Comfort is key in my world.
