{Remix} Shorts Story...


There's nothing I love more than a good pair of versatile, timeless shorts... Can you tell? I've only worn these faux leather lovelies like a million times, each of which never ceased to delight me with their diversity. From blouses and sweaters, to blazers and tights galore, the possibilities are endless where these not-so-basic basic shorts are concerned. Ooooh yeah.

And in other news, I apparently have a tendency to remix within remixes, especially where accessories are concerned. Exhibit A: quilted bag and booties. Is it a coincidence that they appeared twice in this remix roundup? I think not.

Happy weekending, friends! What's everyone getting up to? xx

{Details} Casual Club...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Now don't judge, but every now and then I feel compelled to bring my vintage Club Monaco sweatshirt out of hibernation. I don't know what it is about that old, familiar logo and its circle-engulfed crest, but I love it. Maybe it's because these sweatshirts saw me through my childhood (that, and pacifier jewelry) making them steeped with nostalgia, or the fact that every crush I ever had ages eight through 10 sported these bad boys too. Shrug. Whatever it is, the CM sweatshirt is alive and well in my heart and on the blog today... I'm sorry and you're welcome. xx

{Style} Dressing Up With Lulus.com...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Sometimes a girl just needs a little sparkle, especially where dresses are concerned. Luckily for me, Lulus.com had just the thing to get me in the mood for some holiday cheer (never too early), as well as date night with my mister... Win-win.

I instantly fell in love with its sparkly, deco-ish print and fit, and can't wait to Christmas-party-it-up in this bad boy... Or at least gorge myself on cookies and eggnog while it hangs nearby, reminding me that despite my temporary bout of gluttony, I am, in fact, still a lady... Most of the time.

{Style} For the Love of Plaid...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Mornings are often a struggle for me, so sometimes I literally just have to throw things together in hopes that they work. This, dear reader, was one of those outfits. I knew I wanted to wear this shimmery top the second I saw it peeking through a heap of clothes (aka the state of my closet right now), and the pants were selected solely because they were within reach. The bar is low, my friends. From there, I figured I didn't have much to lose, so I threw on this blazer and hoped for the best. The end result? Let's just say it's somewhere between secretary chic and Caddyshack... I'll take it.

{Style} Black & Gold...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Can we just take a moment to talk about this skirt? I bought it at The Pretty Secrets popup shop a couple weeks ago and have been obsessed with it every since. I mean come on, it's gold, pleated and all kinds of awesome, am I right? Plus it's vintage Smart Set, which totally appeals to the 13-year-old 90s child inside... Hashtag sigh.

In other news, it's time to announce the Boutique Onze gift card winner... Are you ready? The winner is... Jessica of Here & Now! Congrats girl!

Thanks to everyone who entered, I wish I had a gift card for all of you! xx

{Details} Retail Therapy...

Photobucket Photobucket

Sheer boredom, coupled with my love of online shopping, led to a little splurge-fest recently... And since I worked from home yesterday, I was around when Mr. Postman came by to deliver the goods. No, not like that pervs, I'm talking about this adorable bag and these hot heels! Now truth be told, my dream animal-embossed bag is a little more Burberry than ASOS, but hey, I do what I can. And how cute are these ShoeMint pumps? My feet are officially ready to parrrtay.

Happy weekending, friends! xx

{Style} Flowers & Dots...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Sometimes the simplest outfits are best, while other times you just have to pack in as many colours and prints as humanly possible. I'd like to think of this particular outfit as a happy medium in that it's low key yet fun and super print mix-y (totally a word by the way). I mean why wouldn't you wear floral print and polka dots — with a splash of leopard, no less — on a casual day? My thoughts exactly. xx

{Style} Varsity Blues...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

I blame this outfit on Pinterest... Why you might ask? Because my impressionable mind saw a pic of a girl wearing a varsity jacket and decided right then and there that I needed one too. Yup, that's how my mind works, ladies and gentlemen. The crazy part is I never even liked them before let alone did I want one. They always seemed so high school to me, conjuring up images of Buffy the Vampire Slayer traipsing around graveyards in an oversized jacket and pink spandex... Hot.

Happy Wednesday, loves! xx

{Style} Laid Back Leopard...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Leopard print jeans are my greatest guilty pleasure, only minus the gilt because they're totally awesome. I hesitated for a second when I first saw them last summer, but then I gave my head a shake and quickly pulled out my credit card... No regrets. Rain, shine or snow (ahem), I'm all about these bad boys. What can I say, I'm loyal like that.

Happy Monday, friends! xx

{Style} Remixing With Lulus.com


Are there any outfit-remixers in the house today? Yeah, that's what I thought... We all do it, because at the end of the day, why wouldn't you want to get the most out of your wardrobe as humanly possible? It just makes good cents. That's why when Lulus.com sent me this adorable cross dress, I thought it would be fun to style it three ways instead of just one.... More bang for your buck, if you will.

From dressy to casual — heck, or even transformed into a top — this dress proved to be incredibly versatile and chameleon-esque... So basically an avid remixer's dream.

This is what I was able to do with my dress in a short period of time, but here's your chance to show me up— So tell me, how would YOU style it, lovelies? I wanna know!

If details are the spice of life, then this little DVF clutch is the spiciest of them all... Hubba hubba. I bought this back in NYC because it was the prettiest clutch I had ever seen — I mean come on, just look at it! That colour, that style, those hot lips... Man I'm in love. And do you know how I celebrated that love? You guessed it my friends, with sugar and sweet, sweet caffeine... Let's just say I know how to show a clutch a good time. xx
