Bridesmaid Dress from Donna Morgan

IMG_0233
In October, I had the pleasure of being my best friend’s maid of honour. She lives in PEI and her other bridesmaid in New Brunswick. Since we were in difference provinces, we were assigned different colours for each of our dresses and we were allowed to pick our own style.

My colour was mint and I ended up finding a beautiful silk chiffon one at Donna Morgan. I ordered it online and it came quickly in a beautifully packaged box. One thing to be careful about in international orders (especially clothing) is any potential custom fees. Mine ended up being an additional $40 on top of what I already paid for the dress (including shipping).

I didn’t mind though because the dress was perfect. The different colours and textures of each of the girl’s dresses looked stunning together.

Commuting in Style

style

I’ve always loved the idea of black accessories because I find them classic and timeless. Recently, I’ve been obsessed with the textured faux-leather black and gold combinations that seem to be in.

When I bought my Macbook I decided to get the slimmest stylish bag I could find to carry it in. The 13″ Marc Jacobs case was perfect. I liked that it came with a longer strap so that I could carry it like a cross-body bag. Therefore, making commutes much easier and safer.

I was in desparate need of a purse so I purchased the GUESS black carry-all in black. This also came with a cross-body strap which was perfect and enough pockets for phones, make-up and other things ladies put in purses.

Pizza Socks

I’d say I pretty much won Yankee Swap this year because I ended up with these fabulous Pizza socks from Living Royal.

Don’t they look delicious enough to eat?

Instagram “Like” Necklace

IMG_9379I saw this adorable necklace the last time I ordered on Photojojo and had been thinking about it ever since. Then one day I gave in and impulsively ordered it.

IMG_9356IMG_9360I love their silly branding of always sending a dinosaur with every package. They even tell you that on the box. Not entirely sure why a little necklace needed a big box though.

IMG_9357IMG_9361The charm itself is a lot bigger than I thought it was in real life and sits on a shiny silver-plated chain. It’s a Photojojo exclusive made by modern jewellery company, Plastique.

IMG_9389It’s been a lovely accessory and conversation starter when meeting new people last week at CMW!

Burger Socks

For Christmas Nash’s little sister @immicaylaB got me these awesome burger socks by Sock It To Me.

IMG_2015I actually don’t own that many pattern socks and these are totally adorable so I decided to do a mini-shoot with them.

IMG_2061 For these photos I used the Canon 50mm 1.8 II lens. It’s difficult to use for selfies because it has difficulty auto-focusing. So basically I estimated by manual focusing and using a remote. This is the only full-selfie photo that turned out.
