Meant To Be
Have you ever felt like a piece of clothing was made for you? Like a designer somewhere was imagining your body when they were making an item? That’s how I feel about this coat. A neighbor of mine had this old coat laying around and thought I could use the fabric for my shop. I went to take the lining out of the coat to make a hat with it, but instead I tried it on. I couldn’t believe it, it fits like a dream. I have never worn a coat that actually slimmed me down but this one does (if I do say so myself). Which is really nice considering I haven’t shed my holiday pounds yet…or the pounds I had intended to shed before that…

Long Lost Friend
The other day when I thought my luggage was lost and gone forever I was moaning because I thought I had lost this vintage cardigan. In honor of it be returned to be I thought I would throw it on. Sadly, the photos don’t do it justice; it has beautiful tiny seed bead flower embroidery and pearl buttons. I paired it with this lilac pink lace dress; the whole outfit is very light and soft which is not normally something that attracts me. But I am loving feeling like a lady in this ensemble.
…And yes I am standing on my bed which is sadly just a mattress on the floor, please just ignore it.

This necklace has so many baubles, but it is so light weight. Plus it makes a slight jingle when I walk, which I really love. for some odd reason.
A Rare Opportunity
I was lucky today because it was an unseasonably warm out today only -17 degrees Celsius, compared to the typical -35 it has been lately. So I hopped at this chance and took some photos outside, which we all know look a hundred times better than inside photos. Sadly, most of my photos from here on out will be unflattering inside photos.
This outfit was brought to you by: Dress Suzy Shier, Boots Gift, Sunnies Old Navy, Coat Majora and Seal Skin Gloves by a local woman.
This is not my usual winter coat because frankly it is not warm enough, but on these sunny days I do enjoy taking it out for a spin. It has the most versatile and unusual collar/hood thing. Plus, I am really loving the all black in winter time because I feel it shows off my alabaster skin (yes alabaster, not pasty pale).
P.S. Later this week the Hubster has agreed to do an outfit post with his classy but warm outdoor gear.
Warm Grays and Mustard Yellow
This is my favorite color combination, ever. Warm grays and mustard yellow just look so good together. Unfortunately after reviewing these photos I realize the colors look good but maybe this cardigan isn’t the most flattering. Oh well, this is just my lazy movie day outfit, I’m sure Hubster doesn’t care that the sleeves on this cardi are a little saggy. Or that I have worn this gray belt 600 times…

This charming locket was a gift from the Hubster. I love it. I love this strange girl with her gorgeous bee dress. He purchased this from Emily Winfield’s shop The Black Apple. Her art is so captivating to me and whimsical and weird and wonderful. I want to line my walls with her artwork…I also want a beehive dress.
Happy Lazy Sunday!
p.s. I put fancy buttons at the top of my page so you can easily see my fav outfits, DIYs, reads (i.e. blogs I love) and other things I thought would be interesting. Now I can pretend I am a real fancy pants blogger…except I don’t actually own any pants, hmm.
