cranberry sauce

I finally found a burgundy/cranberry coloured piece of clothing! GAP was having some great sales this weekend so I picked up this sweater for 60% off and the grey scarf for 40% off! I love this colour combo because of how it is Christmas-y, but not an obnoxious amount. I love thick circle scarves because of how chic they look, and how warm they are, especially in the winter. I would have one in every colour if I could, but then again, there are a lot of things I would like in every colour ;) I hope you like it!

talk that talk to me

The new Rihanna album is amazing, just to start out! Hense why my title for this look is also the main lyric in the title song, Talk That Talk. Anyways, we had a lovely Chinook on Wednesday (for those that aren't from Alberta, that's a cyclical cloud over a region with a very high, warm wind) so it was quite mild out. I decided to grab my pea coat and my blue and white striped v-neck sweater and head out to take some pictures! I also   wore my brown H&M circle scarf to add some dimension.
Just to let everyone know who lives in the Calgary region, American Apparel is having a huge warehouse sale at the Big Four building down at the stampede grounds, and there will be deals of up to 90% off! So if you can, make time before Tuesday to head down there, but the sooner the better!

don't say you love me

Again with my new pants, but I just love them too much to stuff them back in my drawers. So, I paired them with my turquoise scarf and my grey H&M sweater to provide contrast, but still keep a cohesiveness within the outfit. I chose to wear my Steve Madden dress shoes because I thought if I wore my brown boots or penny loafers, it would be too much of the same colour in one half. As well, my Tommy Hilfiger bag goes with the colour scheme and the classy feel of the look. I hope everyone likes it :)

I want to live life, and be good to you

So I welt to Urban Outfitters yesterday to get a new pair of pants, and I was on a hunt for red. But, unfortunately, they were all sold out of their salmon Levis, so I bought a pair of Obey khakis. For this look, I kept it pretty simple; just my jean shirt and grey cardigan. I was unsure of what shoes to wear at first, my brown boots or black dress shoes. But ultimately, I decided to keep with the casual theme and go with my dark brown Steve Madden boots. I hope everyone enjoys this look :)

peaceful in the deep

So in respect for all the men and women who died for our freedom in combat, in Canada we have Remembrance Day on November 11 every year. That's why I'm wearing a poppy in my look. Anyways I wanted to keep the look a bit classy so I paired my new penny loafers from Steve Madden with my black skinny dress pants and navy blazer. I also wanted to be warm so I wore my grey sweater from H&M. Anyways, I hope you like my latest :)

never let me go

So I wanted to show off my new Steve Madden bag, although in these shots it's being used as a clutch, and I have my wonderful muse/photographer Nathalie to model it for me! She paired her Forever 21 floral dress with my brown H&M cardigan to give it a very homey, fall feel. She also added her grey booties to keep with the cooler theme. I hope this is helpful to see how to wear an elegant clutch!
The song above is from the new Florence + the Machine album and it is by far my favourite on the album! Definitely give it a listen!

turn away from all the rough spots

I got a new bag from Steve Madden on Monday and I'm hopelessly in love with it! I prefer to use it as a man clutch, because a good one is hard to come by and they are very in for F/W 2011. I really wanted to try something different by pairing two button up shirts together, which I don't... well ever. The pallet is a bit summery, but the black and brown make it appropriate for fall. Pair all of these elements with my old white shoes from H&M and its even more fallish (I like making my own words up when I can't think of an appropriate adjective). Annnyyways, I hope you like it!!

strangeness and charm

Okay, so i found this corduroy shirt at Superstore surprisingly and I absolutely fell in love! I paired it with my vintage scarf, an old grey beanie, and my Mom's lia sophia necklace to add a little classy rusticity (look it up, it's actually a word) to my look. Also, my wool socks sticking out from my boots, although typically a trend for girls, I think give my look a bit of warmth.
For my title, I chose a song from the new Florence + the Machine album, Ceremonials, which is an amazing album to say the least! If you're looking for some good new music, definitely check this one out! PS, I'll be posting another look tomorrow so watch out for that :)
