The Jean Dress

jeandress1
I drove out to this location after a thundershower – how beautiful is this scenery! We must push to preserve land like this from being covered with cement. When I first saw this vintage jean dress, I did not see it as a dress, instead I envisioned it as a cardigan. I put this ensemble together in my head, and I ended up really liking how it turned out.  All the jewelry I am wearing is locally made either in Saskatoon or within Canada! I’ve really been into layering denim lately – it creates such a unique look.

Hunt of Hounds

h&h5
A few weeks ago, I was on my way to the SFDF Pose rehearsal and had some time to spare, so I popped into Hazlewood Vintage. I was greeted by Sabrina and Cole, the designers behind Hunt of Hounds jewelry. I was completely mesmerized by their jewelry – as each piece is so intricate with incredible attention to detail. Their jewelry is inspired by Victorian, Baroque, Renaissance and mourning designs. Each piece has so much thought put into it, and is handmade which creates a one-of-a-kind uniqueness that is hard to come by these days.

Keep Your Wallet in a Buckle

Along with summer weather finally arriving, so do outdoor concerts, events and activities. I have never enjoyed having to haul a purse around to any of these, and it seems that Wallet Buckle has found a solution to my problem! This buckle has room to store multiple cards in the back of it, eliminating the need to carry a purse or wallet around!

This buckle has tiny little gems imbedded into the buckle, providing that intricate detail that I love!

An Unexpected Journey

May22hobbit
I have indeed been on an unexpected journey, which has left me with little time to blog, but I’m back, baby! I picked this shirt up at the Regina Expo, right after I met Sean Astin – it’s truly one of my favourite shirts. Sure, I love fashion, but you better believe that I love Tolkien and LOTR much more!

The Corpse Bride

corpsebride5
I received this dress, which dates back to the early 1900’s, from The Dress Form. I was presented with the truly incredible opportunity of breathing life back into it. As soon as I saw this dress, my first thought was of Patti Russo in this video. I cannot imagine any other way to wear this dress than white-on-white, it portrays such elegance! The love I have for vintage items grows more and more every time, the attention to detail is my favourite! I feel so privileged that I get to wear a dress that has remained in such great condition from over 100 years ago.
Thank you to Serena Liu for your wonderful photography and Untangled Hair Group for the hairstyling!

Canadian Tux

canadiantux1
Happy first day of spring! The sun is finally shining a little longer and the snow is starting to melt! I am welcoming in the new season wearing a Canadian tuxedo. First, can we talk about these jeans – I tend to be quite detail obsessed and I cannot get over how perfectly created these jeans are. My favourite detail is the little touch of corduroy. I tied the outfit together with vintage accessories, I turned a vintage key into a necklace, and paired it with this vintage metal belt. I don’t normally wear this much color, (Wednesday Addams and I get along) but I have to say I enjoyed it!
