Contrasting Hues

Hi,

How is your week going? Mine is going pretty well. Tuesday Night was movie night and had a chance to watch “Girls Trip”. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the movie and it was hilarious. I have to commend Tiffany Haddish who played Dina in the movie, she killed her role. She definitely brought her A+ game. In every girl squad, there are different personalities but there’s always a crazy one? I think in my group, I definitely get the award for the crazy and funny one, LOL. In your group, which one are you? I would love to know.

KEEPING IT CASUAL – NEWSPAPER PRINT TOP

Hey guys,

Any plans this weekend?

Do you remember when Carrie Bradshaw wore the newspaper print Dior dress on SATC? Couple of years back I fell in love with the newspaper print by Ituen Basi, a Nigerian Designer. The newspaper print is part of the Double Take collection. The designer used iconic images from her previous work to create the newsworthy fabric. This piece is definitely a timeless one and a conversation starter.

WaistCoat Season

Hey Guys,

How was Labor day? Any shopping spree or amazing discounts? Please share!

It’s getting colder by the day in Calgary by the way so I decided to pair my shirt with a waistcoat (scored for 4CAD) , culotte pants (an obsession, lol) and my pink shoes. I really love thrift shopping and finding unique items.

Moroccan Style Print Set

Hey Guys,

What’s happening this labor weekend?

Summer is over but the weather has been good thus far. I went to try the famous buttermilk fine waffles in Calgary and I have to say I totally loved it. The atmosphere is totally awesome and you can mix and match any two waffles for only 14 CAD. If you haven’t been and you are in Calgary, check it out.

I wore my moroccan style print set and you can definitely dress it up in different ways. The kimono style blazer was one reason I was excited about this outfit.

Can we have a short day?

Hey Readers,

Summer in Calgary is unpredictable, one minute rain and the next minute sunshine. I wanted to dress different today and I decided to name it “Short day” hehe. I have to change my hair up soon because thats my excuse for the head wrap (hehe). Any suggestions for a new hairstyle for me? Please let me know in the comment section, I will appreciate it.

I picked up my silk shorts from Zara during the sale for 19.99CAD (its no longer available online but you can find an alternative here). I love my silk shorts but I didn’t like the fact that I ironed the pants before leaving the house and sitting actually creates wrinkles on the shorts. So I apologize in advance for that. I will only wear silk pants when I know I get to stand all day (thats tough). The shorts are high-waisted and loved that it wasn’t too short, just appropriate for my petite self.

I paired my shorts with a long sleeve silk print top (alternative here) and blue lace up shoes (similar here). My sunglasses are DAPMOD and my vintage earrings & ring (the love ring) are from value village. I came across a beautiful store in Riverfront, Liz and Lottie with stylish accessories (purchased one of my rings there today for 11CAD) and is definitely on my list for great stylish finds.

Have a great weekend 🙂

With Love,
