Winter Favourites


I have been wanting to find a unique vintage style dress unlike some of the ones that I already own. After visiting a couple of charity shops I took the search online, and then to a friend's trunk of fabric remnants that she was going to toss.

Fortunately, I found two pieces of yardage from the trunk that I believe (if I cut very carefully) will be able to make a dress or skirt. It's one of the many tasks on my 2016 list, to sew more like I used to professionally and showcase occasionally on the blog.

Also, after perusing online I found similar vintage-inspired dresses that I liked on Sammydress' site, including this tartan belted dress, and a classic polka dots retro silhouette. There are plenty of items and selected pieces that include free-shipping. The brand asked me to select a few of my online favourites. I've not worn any of their dresses yet, but I've tried my luck with their tops, and jumpers as well as a few accessories. I laughed when I saw the Doctor Who inspired necklace, because I have a friend who would adore it so much!

I actually haven't bought much at all recently except beauty products (makeup and skincare) mostly. But, I did manage to grab a snugly faux fur coat before Christmas and saved it to wear afterward, then again for New Year's Eve. I loved it so much that I added a couple of colourful fur options below. Now, all I need to do is find an emerald green faux fur to add to my list of entirely practical seasonal wardrobe essentials.
