If I Could Turn Back Time

ificouldturnbacktimeRFB_2
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way, I’d bring back all the vintage denim or I’d probably stay. These jeans were my mom’s in the 1980s and I always laugh when I see them – the brandname is Fancy Ass – it just doesn’t get better than that. A huge thank you to Larissa Uy for her photography & for capturing the moment.

The Pack is Back

march312018RFB4
The fanny pack is back! When I brought this fanny pack home from one of my thrifting outings & showed it to my parents, I thought it was quite funny when my dad said “Hey, that is exactly like the one I used to have!”

I wish I would have had a stylish fanny pack for when I went to Norway, it would have made things so much easier! Today I am sporting a microfibre-free outfit by wearing all natural materials! I thrifted these white pants, originally they were huge flare bellbottom jeans and to make them more modern I cut and sewed them to look like jeans that are more in style today – it was ridiculously easy!

Tiara Grace

onecklaceRFB1
I have been seeing personalized jewelry on models and in street style so frequently that I decided I should join the fun. I love personalized jewelry because it offers so many layering options. I love layering necklaces as they bring so much interest to an outfit. Personalized jewelry is special because, in my opinion, it is a timeless piece that you can keep wearing throughout your life – which makes it a great statement piece instead of a fast-fad – just ensure that you make a high-quality investment that will last and keep looking good throughout the years.

Here I am wearing my personalized necklaces with an outfit that consists of completely natural materials – cotton & leather – in my efforts to reduce my own personal microfibre pollution. Natural sure does look better, on myself and on the planet!

I chose to get “Tiara” & “Grace” on my personalized necklaces because those are my first and middle names. I layered them with other necklaces I have, that happen to be vintage pieces, the options are endless! It is so fun to search for vintage pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe – make it an outing with friends & hit up some local thrift shops!

Just Peachy

Even though I have lived in Saskatchewan my whole life, I have still not grown fond of winter time. It is always so cold with the most chilling winds. This makes it more difficult to look fashionable when all I want to do is put on layer after layer, however over the years I have learnt a few tricks. One of them is to accessorize with items that can be seen despite several layers – sunglasses work perfectly! Sunglasses are a must for me during winter when I am driving as the snow is always so bright! These sunglasses are from marsquest and they add a great pop of colour to my usual dark winter ensembles.

I really like that these sunglasses are made from titanium and have a stainless steel mount, making recycling them once their product lifespan is over even easier.

Birthday Glam

23rdbirthdayRFB1
Today is a special day of celebration, as it is my 23rd birthday! This day encourages me to examine how far I have come, what I have learnt in the past year and to pursue goals that I have not yet had time for. This year I have really started to dress more sustainably and lead a more minimal lifestyle – and I am very proud of myself for that. My goals for this upcoming year are to buy less, buy used, buy better and only buy items made from natural materials.

This year my celebration is a little more glamorous, as I was gifted this beautiful rose gold bracelet from Paris Jewellers. Paris Jewellers is a Canadian luxury jewellery retail brand that is co-owed by two sisters. Nothing quite like the inspiration of these successful women to motivate me to accomplish my goals!

A few years ago, I did not own any rose gold jewellery, however in this past year I have grown very fond of rose gold. Rose gold is such a soft and warm colour, which makes it flattering on every skin tone. I like how this bracelet has a dainty adjustable drawstring, perfect for my petite wrists. It also sparkles brilliantly and adds eye-catching detail to any outfit.

A Step Up

Purple Rain

I was so excited when I found this purple suede jacket at my local thrift store. I wish the items I thrifted came with pictures of how the original owners wore them.
