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.

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

I found these 1980s trousers at Northside Antiques when I was at the lake this summer. I’ve been on the hunt for this style of pant for years now and I am so excited that I finally found a pair that fit!

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.

Second Hand News

secondhand3RFB
I am very excited and proud to announce that this entire outfit is all secondhand clothing and accessories. Buying clothes secondhand saves the atmosphere from further carbon pollution and the world from further chemical toxicity that would have been produced to create new clothing. Not only is my entire outfit all secondhand, but it is all made from natural fibres that will break down eventually – unlike synthetic clothing which releases plastic microfibres every time it is washed, which has lead to a massive pollution problem. I also want to mention that this entire outfit costed me around $100 Canadian. You can buy secondhand clothing, save money (and donate/spend it on things that really matter), and still look amazing! I encourage you to scout out your local thrift stores, vintage stores and Value Villages and have fun discovering treasures and embracing your true style through a more earth-friendly alternative.

Stepping Back in Time

2016tiaranromanoff-39
This is the last of the outfits that I put together for the Sasktel blog. This long vest is a favourite statement piece of mine – I love the little cross stitches. I am mixing textures with the vest and a mesh Laurie Brown shirt. My favourite part about this outfit however is the shoes. These shoes were my great aunt’s in the 1930s. So thankful that we share the same shoe size! Thank you Nicole Romanoff for your wonderful photography!
