I'm back!

Hello everyone, sorry for being gone for so long! These past few months have been very hectic and shall continue to be until the summer. Because of this I haven't been dressing up too much, and I do miss it a lot. With the weather reaching +26, I feel like it would be the perfect time to start that again.

As you can tell from the photo above, I have dyed my hair a light auburn. I think it suits me pretty well and will look fantastic with the dress I am wearing for grad.

I hope to be able to start posting again, so thank you for reading this and I shall see you again soon!

Outfit Post

Tonight I went out to a hockey game, so I thought that I would dress up. I wore this adorable 1960's dress and jacket set by Irving Korny. I found it a few days ago at a thrift store and immediately fell in love. It wasn't badly priced either, at only $7.


Sometimes it can be really fun going out dressed in vintage head to toe. Tonight I went to a local hockey game, a hobby of mine. I wore this there and sometimes it was hilarious to see people's reactions. Most of the time people do enjoy what I wear, though there have been a few unimpressed stares, mainly from younger women. I do have to say though, that most elderly people do enjoy seeing me dress like this on a regular basis. 

The accessories I am wearing are a 1950's velvet hat and three bracelets all from a thrift store. Sadly the bracelets aren't Bakelite  but I like them anyways. They actually can fit onto my wrists, which is surprising because vintage jewelry usually doesn't. I do wish I had some Bakelite in my collection that actually fit me. One day I suppose!

Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day!

A Very Casual Day

Today was a very casual day for me, as you may have noticed. I have been battling a rough cold this past week and finally I am starting to feel better. With the snow still outside I needed to dress warmly, but figured I could probably get away with a sweater and pedal pushers. 

Sweater: Christmas Gift
Pedal Pushers: Freddie's of Pinewood
Glasses: RayBan (prescription)

I would also like to show you two dresses I found that almost made me faint at the site of them.

Last night I was out at thrifting at my local Value Village. I was looking through the "vintage" rack they have and came across these two stunning party dresses. I must admit, at first I could barely believed my eyes. They are both from the 1950's and are in extremely good condition. I tried them on in the changing rooms, and they actually fit me! There was also a black party dress with sequins on the bodice, but that was much too small in the bust. 

When I reached the checkout I paid a measly $50 for these beautiful dresses. Now I normally wouldn't pay that much at a thrift store, but I absolutely could not pass them by. 

I wish you luck on your next thrifting adventure!

Quick Outfit Post

Hello everyone, this is what I wore today. It is a 1960's Windsor Dress that I found at my local Value Village. I find the colours in it quite pleasing to the eye, and I thought today would be a good day to wear it. I am not feeling too well at the moment, so sorry for this post being so short. Thank you for reading, I shall post more when I am feeling better!

Returning From Vacation

Hello! I have not had the chance to post in awhile because last week I was in Mexico for February break. It was absolutely beautiful there, and very warm compared to here. My family stayed in Cancun but we did visit Chichen Itza and the Sacred Cenote. I thought it was absolutely fascinating to see the buildings that were still standing today after surviving for hundreds of years in the jungle. If you are interested in seeing some of the photos I took, just ask and I shall post my flickr account.

Today I felt like dressing very brightly, in order to persuade the snow to go away. Sadly, I do not think it worked. No matter though, it did manage to cheer a few people up.

I recently bought this cute 1960's dress at a thrift store when they were having a 50% off sale. It was an absolute steal at $2 on sale. It's made of wool so it does scratch a bit, but they always say beauty is painful.

Thank you for reading!
