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!

Cry to Heaven

batoutofhell3RFB1
It was the first time I had driven after my surgery for endometriosis, and the first time I had gone out alone after the surgery as well. I decided to pop into Better Off Duds for a peek. I was looking through the band t-shirts, I had reached the large section and something told me to flip one more hanger and THERE IT WAS… a vintage Meat Loaf concert t-shirt. In the 7+ years that I have been actively thrifting I have always wanted to find a vintage Meat Loaf shirt. I could not believe I had finally found one. God bless vintage sizes as well because this shirt was marked as a large, but fits like a small. I think Meat Loaf albums are truly creative masterpieces (artistically and musically) and I don’t think I’ll ever stop being excited about this incredible find. Also, check out this vintage suede skirt I found as well… a match made in heaven.

Just Peachy

marsquestsunglassesRFB2
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.

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.

Midnight Blue

Here is another one of the outfits I put together for my feature on the Sasktel blog. I am notorious for wearing black outfits – I accessorize to keep them interesting! This leather jacket is probably one of the best purchases I’ve made! I’m keeping it local with incorporating designs from Laurie Brown & Hunt of Hounds, both located in Canada. Thank you to Nicole Romanoff  for your photography!

Life Has Surface Noise

record3

Well, its no secret that I have an old soul. I prefer the 1970’s and 1980’s, old time rock and roll, and vinyl records. So I thought it was necessary to relate this post to one of my favourite quotes:

“Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don’t have any surface noise. I said, “Listen mate, life has surface noise.”John Peel
