Grey Tulle Dress

Until I started my blog, I had no idea how many fun mural walls we had here in Vancouver!  I saw this gorgeous one on the corner of South Granville and West 13th Avenue and thought it would be the perfect backdrop to show off this adorable grey knit and tulle dress I had hanging in my closet.  Who doesn’t love tulle? I always feel like I am channelling my inner Carrie Bradshaw when I wear it… LOL!

Is this not the perfect dress for Spring? It is called the Tranquil Thoughts dress and I found it on a flash sale from VICI (one of my new favourite online sites!) They have the cutest and most reasonably priced clothing. I have been super pleased with everything that I have purchase 🙂

Our Annual Academy Awards Party

I absolutely love a good theme! Every year my girlfriends and I get together for an Academy Awards viewing party.  What started up as an evening of glamour eventually turned into a competition for who could find the most “beautiful” gown… and when I say beautiful, I mean garish… In fact, we now have a collection of dresses we will promptly change anyone who dares to show up in an actual stunning dress!






Everyone fills out a Ballot with their predictions. We print these off of the Oscar website HERE.  We have prizes for first, second, third place. Of course there is also a prize at our party for “best” dressed!

Oscar Party




We have accumulated our decorations over the years.  There is always a red carpet for the girls to pose on, statues to have our photos with and lots of yummy food.  Most of the decorations have been hand crafted or purchased from Turkey’s Party Makers or Party City.

This party has become one of my very favourite traditions with my girlfriends 🙂  It is so fun to just get dressed up with my girls and have a lot of laughs.  We are already keeping our eyes out for the perfect dresses for next year!

The Cutest Spring Bags Under $50!

I am so excited for Spring that I can hardly stand it!! By the time March rolls around I am officially done with Winter! I will always be a sunshine over snow girl. I have had my fill of cozy sweaters and cute booties.. I am ready for all the floral print dresses (stay tuned for a future post on my favourites…).  In the meantime I have been perusing all of the fun purses that are starting to appear.  I absolutely love the brightly coloured leather and am thrilled to see that straw and raffia bags are still going to be HUGE again this year!

One of my favourite dresses of all time!

When I received the invitation for one of my best girlfriend’s weddings, I immediately realized I was going to need an exceptional dress! She is so classy and fabulous I knew this was going to be no ordinary soiree.  I started my search for a dress that was worthy of attending these beautiful nuptials… 😉  As soon as I saw this bold, gorgeous floral party dress I knew that it would be perfect (and so was the price!)

This is one of my very favourite dresses that I have hanging in my closet.  I have gotten so many compliments on it.  This dress also comes in a handful of other pretty prints if you are looking for a great dress for a special occasion.  It is a super feminine length and such a flattering cut! Now I just need more occasions to wear it!

Currently Living in: Loungewear!

I don’t know about you, but I cannot get enough of cozy loungewear right now!  It most likely has something to do with the freezing temperatures outside or the surprise snow we have been waking up to…. but I am finding on my days off, all I want to do is be lazy with my boys around the house!  As much as I love my party dresses, they are not really the most practical choice for sitting on the floor playing duplo or for snuggling with sticky fingered little babes… lol. I have been living in my powder pink joggers and cozy pullovers.

High, Medium & Low Priced Dresses!

I consider myself to be a bit of a deal finder.  Whenever my girlfriends are looking for a specific item they want, I take great pride in being able to search it out and find it for them at a smoking deal!  I definitely own some investment pieces, and have so much appreciation for good quality and luxury items, but I am also a sucker for a bargain!  I have been obsessed with velvet this year and am making a conscious effort not to go overboard with this particular trend.  I had been seeing these gorgeous velvet wrap dresses everywhere and after losing the internal struggle with the more practical version of myself, I came to the conclusion that I needed one hanging in my closet… LOL!  I decided to shop around to see if I could find an option I liked at a lower price point.  Well, it was a successful mission so I decided I should share some of my various priced finds with you guys 🙂

What do you think? I felt my $30 grey wrap dress was just as cute as the $230 version!

One Cardigan Styled Three Ways

Good Morning everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start 🙂

I am all about versatility when it comes to fashion.  I love finding a dress I can utilize for multiple seasons, a great denim shirt that I can dress up or down, or in this case- a cardigan I can wear with all different styles of outfits! It is a great way to make your existing wardrobe stretch a little further 🙂 I am cardigan obsessed and this one that I am featuring is a current favourite. (The BP. brand from Nordstrom is awesome!) Not a colour I usually buy, but I am finding it to be super wearable with so many things in my closet! For today’s post I wanted to show how this one article of clothing could be worn with a few different styles of outfits.
