Thank you Lauren Greve for the photography ❤
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.

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!

Have you ever seen anything as beautiful as this blue velvet coat? I’m obsessed. This is part of a series of outfits I put together for my feature on the Sasktel blog. Winter style does not have to be boring with bold and unique jackets! When styling a striking jacket, stick to a monochrome outfit so it doesn’t look too busy and to allow your jacket to pop! Thank you Nicole Romanoff for your photography!

With the term coming to an end, and winter soon approaching, I had the opportunity to showcase my favourite fall fashions on the Sasktel Blog! Here is one of the five looks that I created. Thank you to Nicole Romanoff for her wonderful photography! Check out my feature on the Sasktel blog here!

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.

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!
