Farewell to Fall: Round Up!

Ok friends….seems like Fall came and went in a blink of an eye and we’ve already been thrown into Winter weather.  I thought before we start focusing on winter wear, we’d take a look at some of the trending colours and vibes in Fall fashion on the blog. Here’s a roundup  of a few I…

Corsets: Let’s Get The Skinny

Ok friends… I’ve been working on this post for a little while.   I was worried about what the backlash would be from readers.  So I feel I must write this preamble first: I believe there is not ‘right way’ to have a body. You can be the healthiest version of yourself and never come close to being…

#OOTD: Pink, Pearls & Perkins!

Between my recent vintage shopping and new pieces I’ve picked up here and there over the past few months, there are a ton of NEW (+ new-to me) accessories that I haven’t integrated into an outfit from my closet as yet.   So, I was determined to adorn myself with newness in my office outfit(s) this week. I’ve been…

#OOTD: Anchors Away!

  I’ve gone overboard for Anchors! You maybe remember me going on and on about this cutie red anchor sweater in a recent post.  Well I found this fab lil’ navy pencil skirt with red anchor print from Old Navy too – it was on sale for $17 (Reg. #25…still a steal!).  I’ve already worn it so much, I…

St. Paddy’s Day!

O’  St. Paddy’s Day!  An excuse to drink in excess and claim you’re Irish!  It’s great!  I’m a big fan of any excuse to drink beers in the afternoon or all day among friends, whilst the bar spontaneously breaks out into song and the occasional jig with fiddle solo.  In previous years, the shenanigans would begin by…

#TVS: Rock-A-Billy Shake-Up!

Last year upon finally jumping on the Mad Men bandwagon, discovering and falling in love with the Rockabilly/Vintage scene Toronto has to offer, the Toronto Vintage Society organized a meetup event last night’s one-night-only live music:  “Sweet 16th” installment of the Rock-A-Billy Shake-Up, at the Junction’s – 3030 (3030 Dundas St. West). My friend Liz, a fellow TVS member and…

Kiyonna’s Black Lace

Lace is maybe the loveliest of all fabrics!  It’s just so pretty and feminine and when it comes in black…uber sexy! Last year, I discovered this fabulous plus clothing line called Kiyonna.  This line seems to have a ton of lace offerings to the plus population…and their sizing is nearly perfect for those in the petite category when it comes to arm & shoulder…

#OOTD: Go Canada Go! + Sunday Brunch

I’m not a sports fan. Buuuut when a work colleague instant messaged me Friday afternoon to give me grief about the fact that I was working…when I should be a patriotic Canadian, by stopping everything I was doing and watch the Olympic Men’s Hockey US vs. Canada Game… how could I argue? As y’all know….Canada dominated moving…

#BoPo Art Installation

Earlier this month I blogged about my friend Karen and her hubs, Peter’s store anniversary party.  Their store, Your Big Sister’s Closet turned 1 this month and I was asked to be a window model for their Body Positivity Art Installation.  The concept was to make plus sized women more visible and to address what is not usually addressed. I…
