I was incredibly lucky to be able to spend most of yesterday with Kim from Chel Photo. I am continually thankful for our collaborations. Here are some of the photos that resulted from our creative process.

This dress was my mom’s in the 1980s – so thankful that she kept a lot of her old wardrobe.

This suede jacket is one of my favourites. I love how the style is almost a replica of the style made popular by the punk-rocker era. Also this choker is one of my new favourite additions to my jewelry collection, it is from Hillberg and Berk.

These beautiful sheer pieces are designed and made by Laurie Brown. I wore this exact top in my very first runway show back in 2014 for Laurie Brown.

Lust For Life

seventies3RFB
I am continually searching for a lust for life – things that inspire me and motivate me to continue on with my journey. I am constantly wondering which path to wander down and which road to follow…. life is confusing at best, however learning what makes me excited to be alive is where I have tried to put the majority of my energy and flourish in. Bringing vintage items alive again and purchasing items secondhand is one way I am able to satisfy the desire to be a more sustainable blogger. Here’s to you in finding your lust for life.

See Through Me

Tiara (NRomanoff)-7
Here is PART II of my collaboration with Laurie Brown and Nicole Romanoff! I love these sheer pieces, and how they create such an edgy, yet feminine look. All of Laurie’s pieces are so high fashion and unique, I love wearing them!

Here I introduced a sporty element to Laurie’s sheer nude skirt, as I have watched athletic wear become very popular in street styles (Which I’m not surprised by as it is so comfortable).

Laurie’s high-waisted underwear are so fun, with the textured material and sheer cut-outs! They are the perfect statement piece to put under her sheer garments.

Here I layered a mesh dress of mine with Laurie’s mesh pieces, and I love the look it creates – layering mesh may be something I do more often!

I love how Laurie’s designs are so delicate and soft, yet they create such a bold look. Huge thanks to Nicole and Laurie for helping me do what I love!
