How to put it all together 

So how do you make an outfit? It really just happens by pairing things all together. You start with a for sure piece that you’ve already decided on such as the black skater girl dress in the second photo. And then accessories come into the picture such as a skull purse, a skull bandana, leather bracelets, leather jacket, distressed jewellery, red lipstick, voluminous messy hair, you name it! All of these things make an outfit. It’s important to decide on your theme of the day and add onto that idea. Be creative, see what goes together and really just have fun with it! After all, it is fashion. If you like it, wear it! 


Good times bad times

My time at the boutique has come to an end for my coop program. I was offered a job at Andie’s where I can further my experience and develop new learning opportunities. I am very excited to join in the summer and continue to work in such a great business. The thing I love most about Andy’s is the variety of clothing it has for a variety of ages. Grandmothers will come in with her granddaughter and both will come out satisfied with a new outfit for their closet. The store is amazing for any of occasion and any event that you have, without a doubt and our help you walk out of the store with a smile. 

The skirf…

So this bottom piece may or may not be a scarf. Honestly i’ll truly never know but what would it matter especially when I have two different ways and possibly more to wear this scirf. (yes I made this up) I found this at the bay where apparently I live at and indulge in! It was located in a section of hanging skirts which encouraged me to try on this stunning navy blue and bedazzled bottom. After trying on the scarf or skirt and falling in love, especially with the price, a score of $30!! I came across the matching hat which further brought me to the conclusion that this could in fact be a circle scarf. This only inspires me to play up more of my clothing in creative ways and wear them without the basic conforming of clothing. At this point, I’m thinking why not wear a button down shirt backwards I mean what if that’s cute you never know until you try! Style tip: have fun and be creative with you clothing!! 

Claws out for the Meow’s Boutique…

This fabulous boutique in uptown Waterloo sells the most glamorous pieces of clothing you’ll find! Not only is it a store full of unique items but a lot of it is vintage. (Actual good vintage!) You’ll find gloves and hats from the 1920’s, gowns from the 60’s, and amazing $8 pants with a cigarette burn in it. Such an amazing variety of the most fashionable pieces! The Meow Boutique is a must see! 

Going classic

Accessorizing with pearls is always a classic move that never fails to impress or play up an outfit. The old Hollywood aesthetic will likely never go out of style due to the sweet, simple and elegant look. To go classy and casual you can pair a pearl necklace with a two piece denim outfit. Or add this quick grab accessory to any fancy outfit to create an eye catching element.

Well, if the shoe fits.. rock them!

With prom around the corner it was time to find the perfect shoes. These but dazzled babies were purchased at Spring shoe store for $50 with a added bonus of 30% off! Wooh, sale! After looking and looking and slowly getting rid of options I finally found the perfect shoe to match my stunning rose gold prom dress. (that btw I can’t wait to post about once I do the big reveal) I was looking for crystals or something rose gold itself and of course something within budget! So? Style tip: When shopping it’s important to remember that you can satisfy your “expensive” taste and your wallet. It is tricky but it is possible. Seriously, I’m broke and will never spend more than what I think is worth but I do believe I have a gift for great finds.

Cheap chic

These lovely black suede heels are my favourite find of the day. I originally had the idea to go to Le chateau for a browse at shoes, which by the way I was basically harassed by the stylists and consultants that work there. I’m literally just looking, DO NOT BRING ME SHOE SIZES!!! The shoes here are amazing but seriously, I’m broke and nowhere near willing to pay $100 (of my own money anyway 😉 on a single pair of shoes. So after feeling obligated to try on 3 different pairs (I’m sorry where actually did this guy get the idea that I wanted to try on shoes though, really.) I went down to the Bay, a shopping haven in my eyes! And looked at there shoes. Glorious but outrageous due to pricing if you’re lacking bank like myself and most people. Although, I did find the perfect pair! They were stunning leather heels with a cut out at the ankles. Ugh. But $175 isn’t gonna happen! At this point I was ready to give up on my shopping trip but I figured I’d try one last store and that was H&M. Boy oh boy, was I in luck. They had pink suede and black suede and leather heels, for $35!!! SCORE!!! and not only that but they were the exact same shoes I had seen at the Bay. The kind workers at H&M who kindly let you shop without any harassment reassured me that the quality was the same and that hey, if there $35, you’d be getting money’s worth even if it lasted you a year.

Style tip: shop smart, smart cheap & chic
