Here is my 2017 Halloween costume – a dead bride. I could not resist, I love dressing up. My entire outfit is thrifted vintage items, or made from up-cycled materials that I had sitting around the house. I love this wedding dress so much that I might actually get married in it!

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.

The Jean Dress

jeandress1
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.

The Corpse Bride

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!

The Green Dress

greendress1
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.
