I'm a firm believer that style should not cost you an arm and a leg, despite what other people say. The point of my blog was to try and show people that you can get style without having to go into debt. One of the things I do to try is re-work pieces so that I can wear them all year round. Try doing this at home with what you already have!


Ready for Spring!

Left: GAP Striped Maxi Dress

Went spring shopping yesterday and was amazed by how many nice clothes that have come out this season! Saw some things that I will definitely be picking up in the next few days. I'm surprised that I found some really nice things at the most unexpected places. I always wanted a maxi dress but wasn't sure if I could pull off the floor length skirt as I'm only 5'2. Tried one on at the GAP and was thrilled that it wasn't overpowering and didn't make me look sloppy. What is on everyone's spring shopping list?


Five Things

1. I have ailurophobia--the irrational fear of cats. Don't know how as I've never been attacked by one. I'm scared of domestic cats, not lions or tigers. When I was little, I was embarrassed to tell my friends so I lied and said I had a fatal allergy to cats in order to avoid houses with cats.

2. My dream job is to be a recruiter for a major fashion brand.

3. Totally gross, but when I'm nervous, I pick the nails off my fingers and toes.

4. When I was nine, I rode my cousin's bike into a stop sign and have a permanent scar on my chest.

5. If I'm snorting while I'm laughing, you must be really funny.

Black Tie Affair

I love the androgynous look of these blouses. I always thought white blouses with black detail were meant for only waiters and businessmen but these blouses are far from it. Can't wait to pair one of these blouses with leather jeggings and a nice coloured heel. What do you guys think?
