I don’t believe much in distinct seasonal wardrobes because I would miss certain pieces on off seasons too much and I think there’s often a way to work summery clothes into a winter wardrobe and vice-versa (probably harder vice-versa). But this dress is one of those items I rarely sport in the colder months. I mean, how am I supposed to wear short-sleeved, Easter purple in January?
I’m going to miss tights weather now that it’s going away, but this is one of few dresses I’d rather not wear tights with simply because it’s hard to find a colour that goes well with it — other than white, but I just feel off in white tights most of the time.
Anyway, here’s the outfit:
- Dress: Black Market on Queen West ($10)
- Tights: HUE
- Flats: Ardene (2 pairs for $20)
- Bag: Vintage Coach from Vintage 1 on Ossignton
I bought this dress about three years ago the first time I visited Black Market. Everything in the store was $10 or less — and is to this day! I went today, actually, and picked up another new blouse.
Vintage 1 is one of my favourite thrift shops in Toronto. Besides super cute dresses and everything else you’d expect from Ossignton vintage, they have a great selection of vintage high end bags, like the Coach one pictured. I spent $100 on it, but it’s of incredible quality and is the ultimate everyday bag.
No face photos this time. I’m trying to train my hair to be less oily, so I’m testing this whole wash-your-hair-every-other-day thing and I don’t feel my best. I was using cheap dry shampoo, but was recommended Klorane by the ever-lovely Yasmine, so I picked up a can this afternoon. I also bought an oil-absorbing shampoo by the same brand, so wish me luck as I attempt to produce less oil!
