Turning tables

grandmother's vintage bra top, H&M white blazer, cheap sequinned skirt, Brown's shoes

Just an outfit I wore out in the summer. It's a little much without the blazer, but with the blazer I think it's perfectly acceptable. The platforms in the last picture are becoming more of a staple in my wardrobe. Perhaps they aren't the most beautiful shoe, but they're high yet comfortable to walk around in because of the "hidden" platform.

Yves Saint Laurent

YSL trousers, Vintage belt, Vintage clutch, Kors by Michael Kors shoes, Vintage Ray Bans

Mom passed down these beautiful vintage white YSL pants. LOVE IT when she does that! This is the type of thing I wear out on a summer night for drinks or a nice dinner. I love matching my accessories, and so I adore the matching tan and white combo. These are one of my favourite pairs of shoes - tan deerskin. So very comfortable, and deerskin leather doesn't get ruined when it's wet! no marking.

Vintage Banana Republic blouse, Abercrombie shorts, Louis Vuitton Speedy, Louis Vuitton Belt

I wear outfits like this pretty often. I'll rock it with a pair of clunky sandals by day, then put on a pair of heels if I'm going out later on. LOVE this ring, though it never seems to stay put!
Dior glasses

Vintage Banana Republic blouse, Vintage Christian Dior glasses, Brown's boots, Michael Kors Watch

Obviously went to my mom's closet for inspiration and found this amazing vintage Dior glasses. Wish you could find stuff like these around more often. The unusual brown-tan-tortoise shell combo inspired this brown-tan outfit with the burnt orange lipstick. Great outfit for fall if paired with a nice shearling jacket, or a chunky sweater.
The Globe

H&M shorts, Petit Bateau T-shirt, H&M Necklace, Urban Outfitters flats

wore this out picking up fabric on queen street. Very casual, as usual, I love light pastel colours. The bright necklace dresses it up a bit and makes the whole thing a little more playful and less dull. 

Spikes and Chains

H&M dress, Forever 21 necklace, Hermes bangle
I think I know at least 5 people who have this dress, but what's not to love? It's so lovely paired with these studded Givenchy inspired heels and the simple chain necklace. Perfect outfit for going out. Could easily be dressed down with opaque black tights and some over the knee boots. I love things that are easy to throw on.
