FASHION FRIDAY — Revisiting My Prom Dresses

Hello lovelies! Today I have another edition of Fashion Friday, featuring a bit of a throwback. I had so much fun with my previous try-on post, so I thought it would be really fun to do a similar post, but this time trying on my old prom dresses!

I actually went to prom three times — my own, with one of my best friends, & then to my high school boyfriends. & each time, I wore a completely different dress in a completely different style! I was never a huge fan of the traditional princess-y prom dress, so I’ve never worn one. It’s just not my style.

So let’s take a look!

FASHION FRIDAY — A Walk Down Memory Lane

Hello lovely & happy Friday! It feels like absolutely forever since I posted anything Fashion Friday. Winter did not inspire me in the least. But now the days are warmer & I’ve been feeling inspired to dress up again.

So truth be told, I’m a bit of an emotional clothes hoarder. I hold on to clothing the way some people hold onto photo albums — I revisit them, remembering the people & moments attached to them. I love pulling out old clothes I haven’t worn in a while, just to take a quick walk down memory lane. So just for fun, I decided to pull a few dresses from lifetimes past, & do a quick then & now.

Red, Navy & White

Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! Can’t believe this week is going by so quickly. But also, I have the next two days off work so I have big BIG plans. Cupboard organizing plans. It’s very exciting.

But first, how about some nail art? That’s what you’re all here for, right?

I finally decided to pull out my nail vinyls, because it’s been a while, haha. I was feeling coral/red with some stripe-y accent nails, so that’s exactly what I did. Actually I was inspired by this look after some Pinterest-ing, & thought it was be an excellent nail art combo.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
  • Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
  • Illamasqua Aorta
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod!
  • Essie After School Boy Blazer
  • SnailVinyls straight nail vinyls (multiple thickness)

Such a classic combo, & I really like it. I feel like I’ve been neglecting my vinyls so much so it was nice to pull them out again. Plus I could never even attempt to freehand lines this straight. I also really like how simple this colour combo is, but that the red gives you that bright pop of colour. It’s definitely a fun combination. I might not wear a head to toe coral suit with striped shirt, but I can definitely achieve a similar look in my nails!

What do you think about this look? Wojld you wear a combination like this? Let me know in the comments below. & speaking of nail vinyls — I just stocked up on some mermaid vinyls from Beyond the Nail, so stay tuned for some fun mermaid nails to come!

FASHION FRIDAY — Preppy OOTD

Details: Dreamers brand Oversized Sweater Dress (purchased at Winners). Ardene Polka Dot Blouse. Ardene Distressed Jeans. Ardene Combat Boots.

Hello lovelies & Happy Friday!

It’s been absolute ages since I put up a Fashion Friday post, so I thought a quick OOTD post would be fun. I recently went through & organized my closet (again!), so it’s been making me want to wear all the clothes I haven’t grabbed in a while. Like this cute polka dot blouse! It’s super old — pretty sure I first bought it in 2012-ish — & I haven’t grabbed it to wear in longer than I can remember! I would have loved to wear this outfit as a dress instead of with jeans, but when it’s -13 degrees outside, you have to make some adjustments.

Mostly that entails 3 pairs of tights under my jeans, & a lot of layers. Have I mentioned I miss Summer?

Have do you show off your personal style during the Winter months? Do you have any tricks for feeling cute without freezing? Tell me all your secrecy’s, & let me know what you think of this OOTD.

FASHION FRIDAY — OOTD: Knits & Layers

Ardene sleeveless burgundy turtleneck sweater (similar sweater here.) Ardene long sleeve burgundy sweater (similar sweater here). Ardene knit leggings (here.) Nine West Knee High Boots. Black Knit Beanie from Dollarama.

Hello lovelies & happy Friday!

It’s been a long, long while since my last Fashion Friday post, & the weather has certainly shifted since my last OOTD post. We’ve gone from light Fall breezes to full on snowstorms, which means my fashion choices have transformed as well.

& how would I describe my fashion style for the current Autumn weather? It’s all about layers!

This look is definitely one I’ve been repeating, featuring different the different sweaters in my closet. I’m all about the layers, & keeping warm, so I’ve been piling knits on top of knits from head to toe. & for some odd reason, late Fall/Winter is the only time where I actually reach for leggings. But don’t worry—I’ve got an extra pair of tights on underneath, because I am always way too cold.

& my current favourite accessory right now, aside from these Nine West Knee High Booties I’ve own since University? The beanie! Not going to lie, Mary Kate & Ashley are once again inspiring my fashion choices with their flawless New Yorker style. But, to be honest, when aren’t they?

So what do you think about this look? I’d say oversized sweaters, leggings, & excessive layers are definitely my Fall uniform. What about you? What are your current style staples? Let me know in the comments below!
