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!
I have a loving fascination with vintage articles, and this dress is my latest obsession. This dress is one of the few pieces that my mom saved, she wore this in 1983. I am so in love with it; the rich color, the lace, the shape, iconic shoulder pads, the buttons, and the drawstrings in the back… could this dress be any more unique? This dress is so special I thought the best way to showcase it was to wear only it, alongside some edgy makeup and hair.
I am in love with my province, and being able to find locations like this.
