what i wore :: tie time

:: head to toe ::
scarf :: thrifted
glasses :: Clearly Contacts
dress :: vintage (Sweet Lorain)
lady tie :: c/o Flapper Girl
shoes :: c/o B.A.I.T. Footwear

This is one of those outfits that just makes me feel so fancy. I think most of it comes from my beautiful lady tie that the lovely Christine from Flapper Girl sent me. I love this thing and now I need to find some more collared shirts in my closet so that I can wear it more often!

I am also pretty excited about these shoes. I have been eyeing them for a really long time and Ivan actually helped me pick them out. That boy has good taste.

Oh, okay, last thing about my outfit. If you are one of my Canadian pals you will be excited to know that my glasses are from Clearly Contacts and right now they have an offer where you can get your first pair free! That's how I got these babies. Until last week I only knew about the American site Coastal that has the same offer but for our US friends. So...moral of the story, if you are in Canada go to Clearly Contacts to score some free glasses and if you are in the States check out Coastal. You just have to pay for shipping which in my opinion is a pretty sweet deal! In case you can't tell I am a pretty big fan of glasses and I get really excited about them!

Today I'm really hoping that I finally make it back into the garden. I have been slacking a little on my planting and I have a few things that I need to get into the ground before they die on me! Also, I have a pretty painted cabinet that I want to attach to a wall. Exciting things are happening over here, that's for sure.

  3. Love the glasses, they look exactly like the pair my mum bought her first time visiting clearly contacts. They were a little too hip for her, haha, but they look lovely on you!

  14. I love Coastal. I've got several pair of Derek Cardigan frames and I love the Love brand too! Some people are handbag or shoe hoarders, but I'm definitely a spectacles hoarder! These are cute frames? What model are they?

  18. That dress + tie combo is unbeatable :) So cute. And although I'm grateful for my healthy eyesight, I've always been a bit jealous of all you glasses-wearers...you have so many adorable ones!

  19. Oh my God! The second picture is amazing. I like your collar but I think I haven't got any brave to wear this kind of collars.
    I really like your shoes, too. I just show it to my cute Grandma and I told her that how much I like this shoes. It reminds me to a cute Peter Pan collar. It doesn't look like that the shoes has a Peter Pan collar? (ahww, I know, it was a very bad English sentence)

    And I especially love your glasses. It makes your outfit totally vintage.

  20. This whole outfit is extra adorable and I especially like how you paired light blue with light pink because it reminds me of bubblegum!
    P.S. You are a total bodacious babe!
