Bold Floral Dress!

Once in a while, an article of clothing comes along and I know without a shred of uncertainty that my life can simply no longer go on without it! This beautiful pink mix floral dress was one of them 😉 It is conservative in length but adds an element of fun with the open back and slit.  It is super feminine and flattering, which I always love.  In my desperation I made the mistake of paying full price, but lucky for you it is now on clearance!!! LOL

Pretty in Pink!

Hello friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We are currently soaking up the sunshine in Maui, but I couldn’t wait to share this adorable dress with you 🙂  Pastel pink and delicate lace?! Two of my very favourite elements of Spring fashion 🙂 Added bonus, it was an absolute steal.  Can there ever be too much pink in your wardrobe?! I have a feeling this one is going to sell out fast.

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!

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!

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!

Floral Midi Dress

Happy Family Day everyone 🙂 Hope you are enjoying some quality time with your loved ones today!

We have had so much rain here in B.C these last few weeks.  The recent sunny days have been few and far between, but when the blue sky finally peeks through, it makes me so excited for Spring!  One of my favourite trends of this particular season is floral dresses.  I am currently obsessed with this gorgeous green midi dress!  I love the colour palette and elegant length.  I am always a sucker for super feminine dresses.

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 🙂

Here are some of the other velvet wrap dresses I came across if we are like-minded and it is an item you were thinking your closet was missing as well…  😉

HIGH:

 

Ruby Velvet Maxi // Pink Plum & Black Wrap Dress // Smokey Velvet Maxi

MEDIUM:

LOW:

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