I’ve talked about this before, but I like to try out different shapes and silhouettes even though my go-to is the fit and flare. I really liked the shape of this dress when I saw it online. I thought it was interesting, pretty, and oddly flattering, despite adding extra volume to the hips. The print made me happy too.

I meant to post this outfit for Valentine’s Day, but didn’t get my shit together. Fortunately, nothing bad has ever happened from someone being over a week late for Valentine’s Day. Am I right? 😉

Speaking of love, this picture looks fake, but it’s a real picture of the real life duck couple that have taken residence in my apartment building’s pool. They’re always together. In the pool. Is anything more adorable?
We rarely get snow in my neck of the woods, but we’ve had a lot more than usual this winter. Fortunately, novel weather makes for new and exciting wardrobe possibilities, like the new toque I bought at a Christmas market (SO comfortable). I’m also sporting my new leggings from http://additionelle.com which honestly aren’t super warm, but are definitely super cute. I’m into the whole printed leggings thing and these are great.
Btw: I have, on more than one occasion, been confronted by a stranger in the street asking me “Did you really get that in New York??”, referring to my hoodie. For the record to those haters, yes, I surely did get it in NYC – so mind ya business! 😉

Well, an all black outfit seems appropriate for this week’s events. This dress is super comfortable, and I’ve added a little sass with the leopard print pumps. At least if the world ends, I’ll be going out in style 🙂
These pants are from Nadia Aboulhosn’s latest collection for Addition Elle. I’ve paired them with a top from her collection from last year. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find enough occasions to wear them, but I loved them so much I couldn’t not buy them. I’ve actually worn them twice since I bought them a couple of weeks ago. The first time was to the grocery store 🙂

I’ve long admired a white jean…on the rack. However, whenever I tried a pair on, I became convinced that white jeans were developed as an international conspiracy to create an article of clothing LESS flattering than complete nudity.You know, a pair of pants that say “Hey leg cellulite, let’s make YOU the star of the show!” And while I’m not at all ashamed of my cellulite, I’m rarely looking for a pant that makes it the focal point of my look. Then I found these at http://thebay.com and I started to think that maybe everything was going to be ok.
