These photos have such warm tones, however the weather was was not warm in the slightest (typical Saskatchewan). I really love this outfit, one of my favourite things about this outfit is how the items are all composed from natural materials (except the tights, which I have been gently washing and reusing for over 4 years now). It is one thing to shop secondhand, but it is only sustainable if the clothing you are thrifting is high-quality and composed of natural materials. This is because man-made materials create plastic microfibres when washed – which is one of the most devastating pollutants in our waterways today. It is time to take responsibility for our actions and to start making our purchases more sustainable.

If I Could Turn Back Time

ificouldturnbacktimeRFB_2
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way, I’d bring back all the vintage denim or I’d probably stay. These jeans were my mom’s in the 1980s and I always laugh when I see them – the brandname is Fancy Ass – it just doesn’t get better than that. A huge thank you to Larissa Uy for her photography & for capturing the moment.

Hunt of Hounds

h&h5
A few weeks ago, I was on my way to the SFDF Pose rehearsal and had some time to spare, so I popped into Hazlewood Vintage. I was greeted by Sabrina and Cole, the designers behind Hunt of Hounds jewelry. I was completely mesmerized by their jewelry – as each piece is so intricate with incredible attention to detail. Their jewelry is inspired by Victorian, Baroque, Renaissance and mourning designs. Each piece has so much thought put into it, and is handmade which creates a one-of-a-kind uniqueness that is hard to come by these days.

Whiskey Teacup

IMGP9669-1WWWW-1
I have had the honour to get to know Laura Crossman, a very talented designer of Whiskey Teacup quite well over the past few months! Laura excels in creating clothing with unique materials and cuts. I first became aware of Whiskey Teacup at SFDF’s Deconstructed Runway, and quickly fell in love with the unique, modern and airy designs. I am obsessed with the textiles that are chosen to create the pieces, they definitely provide a distinct recognition for the brand. I am so excited to see how quickly Whiskey Teacup is gaining popularity, and I wouldn’t mind taking home every piece! I was joined here by two stunning models, Mary Catherine and Kendra, to showcase Whiskey Teacup’s designs for the 2015 look-book!

I love this pairing of the sheer sparkly dress with this skirt! This was my favourite outfit that I got to wear. However my favourite design has to be the white top and skirt with the long tassels! So beautiful and I love the movement!

Huge thank you to Kim and Derek of Chel Studio for the photography and Chel SalonSpa for the makeup and hair! And of course to Laura for being such a delight to work with and letting us model for her look-book!
