Fall Scarves: Go Big- Go Gorgeous!

Are you ready for Scarf Styling Weather?

I am! By now you all know how much I love my scarves (I go around building hanging units just for these babies of mine!)- so you know I’m right in my element when the cool weather comes around.

This fall I’m styling up Bellelily scarves and loving how I’m incorporating them in several of my looks- I’ve even transformed one altogether!  These scarves are even better than what they look like online.  I love the quality and softness, as well as the vibrance of the colors.    See here what I mean:

This first look is this incredible plaid pocket wrap shawl scarf !

Next, how delicious is this color block striped tassel pashmina?! It arrived in a gift bag ready for Christmas giving…

Lastly, look at how I styled this winter warm plaid wrap shawl scarf. So many ways to change it up!

The first thing that I noted about these scarves (besides the beautiful warm colors) is the quality. I love that they use 100% wool- making them warm and practical for Canadian winters- but they’re also super soft!

Another important point for me is size.   In my opinion, when it comes to warm scarves; the bigger the better.  And Bellelily is right on point when it comes to this!  That’s what I find so fun about these scarves, because of their softness and how large they are, it makes them so easily transformable into outfits and looks.  So many possibilities.  They’re way more than just a simple accessory.

Winter isn’t even here and I’ve already styled these lovelies more than some of the tops I own!  Imagine what I’ll do when winter coat season comes around.  I’ll be wrapping myself up in chic ways; over the coat completely- around my neck- and as a hoodie as well.  Winter? Bring it on!

If you love these scarves too- Use my Exclusive Coupon: 10% off for order over CAD$52:  BLE10

SCORPIO Fashion Styling- ZODIAC Fashionphile Edition!

Mystery, mystery, mystery is what this fabulous woman is all about. You can’t really tell what’s going on in her mind- and when it comes to her wardrobe, there always seems to be a touch of drama without revealing it all. This lady is classy, sexy, chic or vampy all in one. She doesn’t really want you to know what she’s all about. Intrigue is the key word here!

So, let’s look at some Scorpio styling babes here and see what emanates from their style. Is there really mystery? I think so!

Ellen Pompeo Responds to Backlash Over Resurfaced Comments About Harvey  Weinstein | PEOPLE.com
Ellen Pompeo is all that and more…

If you want to add a little spice and mystery to your styling, why don’t you step it up to a Scorpio girl’s standards…and keep’em wondering. Remember: Intense.

So when I tried to think of something to style up in Scorpio taste- I looked no further than to this gorgeous- chic and mysteriously sexy EVA VARRO black sultry flower print head-turner. This dress hugs all my curves, leaving much to the imagination.

In this Eva Varro Long Sleeve Chinese dress, I felt gorgeous, powerful, confident and completely in control. Scorpio intensity with all the mystery- am I right?

Here’s me trying to style it up Scorpio Style…Did I nail it?

And here’s a tiny clip of me styling it up- Watch:

Are you a Scorpio? Would you dress as one?

Stay tuned next month for Exhibit: SAGGITARIUS party gal!

The Sparkly Thrifty-Six!

Welcome to The Thrifty Six. We are a group of international fashion influencers who meet once a month in our little space on the internet to share our thrifty outfits. On the third Monday of every month, we will all share an outfit based on a theme that features preloved wardrobe pieces. Shopping and reselling preloved clothing is so much better for the environment and you can find some of the best fashions in thrift or charity shops. The Thrifty Six are here to inspire you to shop second hand! 

For our theme this time we chose pre-loved “Sparkle”

Well you all know, sparkly is actually something I practically wanna wear on a daily basis- so imagine how thrilled I am for this month’s theme! As a matter of fact this is almost a problem for me…what do I choose?! (I have TOO MUCH sparkly stuff- and I love it all equally lol!! )

So…Without further ..!

For this challenge, I’ve chosen a sequin bustier. Why? Sequin is soo good for the morale- it brings glow to everything you wear- and it makes you smile. Second, a bustier is great over almost anything: a top, a dress, a blouse, a turtleneck, a jumpsuit- find me something it can’t enhance! I honestly think that every woman should have at least one bustier in her closet- at the very least! And if it’s going to be just one- then make sure it’s a sequin one.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_3941.jpg

What brought me to choose this black sequin little gem of a bustier? Well, I did promise my fashionistas who follow me for tips and trends- that sequin is on all the runways for fall and winter, and that I’d style that up for you- so what better time than now! And the best part? Everything I’ve styled up here today has been thrifted: from the necklace all the way down to the boots. How cool is that for gorgeous finds??

So, I have this darling, colorful Dimora dress that I absolutely love, but on its own…it truly makes me look drabby and matronly 😱. But the colours are just too good and I really wanna wear it! So, here comes a bustier to change it all up while adding a good dose of pizzazz! I jumped for joy when I thrifted this one a few years back. I collect great accessories so I was thrilled with this sequin darling. I do classify bustiers as accessories, as I rarely, if ever wear, them on their own. They are just the right thing to enhance any outfit. Take a look at how I styled up this one and tell me this outfit doesn’t make for great conversation😊

Check out how my Thrifty Six Sistas styling up their Sparkle!

Jane of Preloved-Vintage-Handmade

Sparkles in the darkness…

I wanted to truly capture the warm iridescent glow of this rose gold sequin dress. It comes to life when darkness falls!

A dress for underground nightclubs, louche parties and minor festive misdemeanours…

I stood in blackness throwing my body into sculptural shapes to twist and contort the glistening sequins.

I let the flash of the camera work its magic to reveal the resplendent lustre for all to see…

Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style

When Jane gave us the theme Sparkle, I immediately thought of my new glitter sweater! Wait….new???? We are The Thrifty Six! Oeps. I almost started to shop for a pre loved sparkly item and then ther light bulb started to glow! Yes, my, new to me, pre loved metallic silver looking skirt! I love this skirt. It’s so stretchy ans easy to wear and yet so cool! Huray for sparkles!

Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge

When Jane chose sparkles as the theme this month, I used it as an opportunity to use my limited time 50% off coupon at my local Thrifty Shopper. That is where I found most of this outfit! The sequined chambray jacket might be my favorite thrifted item ever. I love the style, the color, and the fun sparkles! The little black skirt and my graphic tee shirt are both bedazzled with lots of rhinestone sparkles as well. The jacket and tee shirt were both marked $4.99 and the skirt was marked $5.99. With my coupon, I paid $8 for all three pieces! My beaded bag was also a thrift shop find from Salvation Army and I paid $3 for it. Since we were going sparkly, I had to wear sparkle footwear as well. These gray shimmery booties are from Torrid a few years ago. And my Happiness Boutique Necklace and Earrings were the perfect accessories to showcase an outfit that’s all about the sparkle! 

Emma of Style Splash

When I found out the theme for this month’s Thrifty Six collab was sparkle I knew I had to wear this dress. It is the perfect antidote to the long, dark evenings and depressing news we’re bombarded with daily. When I bought it on eBay I had absolutely no idea when or where I would get to wear it, but I’m not always a practical shopper. Sometimes it’s good to let the heart rule the head!

Grace of Graceful Rags

“I instantly knew I wanted to style this sparkly rust-colored sweater for this month’s collab! Unfortunately, it was raining and very cold on photoshoot day, so I had to adjust my outfit to add a lil’ extra warmth. You can’t really tell in these pics, but I swear the sweater is sparkly! It has the prettiest gold threads throughout—a perfect outfit for Thanksgiving.”

We will be back next month with another pre loved theme!

Fabulous Friday- Come on Over to the Linkup Party!

Another full week of family, styling and fashion in this realm of the woods. We were blessed her in Montreal with summer-like weather and I am so grateful for that! The longer winter stays away, the happier I am!

I kicked off the week in this gorgeous Eva Varro outfit. I adore the eclectic mix of colours in the jacket. Together with the electric blue joggers, this outfit was an automatic cool chic. And- nothing is better than being dressed up and feeling amazing and comfy at the same time. The fabric is everything. From great fit that brings out your best while camouflaging the rest! I love this outfit from the Eva Varro collection! Take a look:

Then, on Wednesday I had fun styling up with a group of amazing ladies up on Insta for our every second week # wearitonwednesday challenge. And this week it was all about vests! Here is a look at my vest:

And- here are the ladies that I joined with:

First pic; top left clockwise: @gwenliveswell, @round2it, @foragoodlifeafter50, @seechele_styles, @hayley.constantino Second pic: @jtouchofstyle, @fashiontandf, @adafurxhi, @jbowenandcompany, @sasforshort

And now for my FAVOURITE FASHION DIVA from the Linkup Party is… Cheryl of Cheryl Shops ! I love red with animal print and she styled this up so beautifully. In her post she also shows her other gorgeous outfit ideas.

My FAVOURITE READ from the Linkup Party was by: Jill of Doused in Pink for her Holiday Gift Guide for Her. So many new ideas to pick from. I love lists of suggestions- don’t you?

Now Lovies… Are you ready for THE LINKUP PARTY?!!! Please come and join the party by LINKING UP!!! AND- Please SPREAD THE WORD! The more the merrier:))

Fabulous Friday’s Linkup and NO!!vember is here

That’s right- start counting down the days to Christmas! Is it even possible? I’m just getting over the fact that summer is gone (go ahead and laugh!). And what about the time change without even having to set back your clocks? All done for us. If I hadn’t read it somewhere, the day would have gone by without me even knowing! Not to mention lockdowns… Is this what’s happening? And -lastly- the world is all eyes on the American election. Boy do I need a distratction!

Enough with the gloom and doom- it is Friday after all! And I did have a fabulous week of styling up for Gail’s challenge. And I thought I’d style up Bermuda shorts! Because that too is super weird this hot weather we’re getting up here in Canada!

Fun!

As well- I’m right back into my DiY’s. Got bored with my scarf wall so thought up a way to minimize space and voila!

Hahaha!! Looks like a costume!!!! But such a great space saver!!!

Check out how I did it here (57 seconds):

Onto my Favourite Fashion Diva of the Week! Here’s Ashley from Le Stylo Rouge

Wear Now: Leopard Dress + Patent Leather Cowboy Boots. | LSR
How darling does she look!! I am crazy about this casual chic look! There’s something about light flowy dresses (especially in animal print!!) paired with cowboy boots that just makes my fashion heart throb like crazy!!

My Favourite Non-Fashion Read from the Linkup was by: Allison of Midlife and Beyond for her post: A Review Of Our Holiday in Cyprus during Corona She wrote a terrific post of what is certainly my dream get-away place: Cypress!!

I could use a little Ouzo on the rocks just about now- with a side dish of calamar…

Now Lovies… Are you ready for THE LINKUP PARTY?!!! Please come and join the party by LINKING UP!!! AND- Please SPREAD THE WORD! The more the merrier:))

7Day Skirt Challenge Linkup! Who Wears Short Skirts? We Wear…

Remember that jingle?! Honestly it’s been awhile since I’ve worn mine. Dresses, pants, jumpsuits, shorts, tunics…all these take precedence over skirts in my styling. I just noticed that this past week.

If it weren’t for Gail of Is This Mutton, who put out a fantastic 7 Day Skirt Challenge up on Instagram…I probably still wouldn’t be styling mine! And I have so many cute ones!!!

How stylish is she!! I love all the combinations she styled up- she looks amazing!

Not only are skirts versatile with their multiple personalities, but most of them Never go out of style. Don’t believe me? Pick any from your own closet and pair it with a trendy top or jacket and voila- it works!

Here’s what I styled up these past 7 days:

DAY 1 (you’ve seen this one as a preview!)

DAY 2 (And this too was a sneak peak!)

DAY 3

DAY 4

DAY 5

DAY 6

DAY 7 (Last Day…oh nooooo!)

And on a last note about why I think styling challenges are super important…Watch here:

So that’s it my Lovies! Which skirt do you prefer? And…Will you be styling up your skirts soon?

I’ve loved doing Gail’s challenge and today I’m also happy to be participating in her Link up! Thanks so much Gail!!

A special linky just for skirts! If you’ve been taking part in the #7DaySkirtChallenge on Insta, showcase your looks.

Bloggers, go ahead with providing us some winning skirt outfits! Please try to visit and comment on the other posts.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Have a great rest of the week my Lovies!

Fabulous Friday’s Linkup Party- Where We Style it Up!

Is it me or did this week also just fly by? It could also be that I’ve had 3 Scorpio birthdays this week…one day after the other- YIKES!! We’ll be cutting cake this weekend. Meanwhile, I’ve been styling up a storm with some great challenges I’ve been part of.

Here’s what I wore for the #wearitwednesday challenge I’m part of; Burgundy or Cranberry was the theme. I still can’t tell those two colours apart. Can you?

I’m part of the Wear it Wednesday Group (every other Wednesday) with these lovely ladies:

In order from left to right: @gwenliveswell; @fashiontandf; @adafurxhi; @hayley.constantino; Michelle @seechelle_styles; @jbowenandcompany; @fashionschlub; @jtouchofstyle (and missing this week but we love her!! @jmary_likes; and also newly wih us, Kim @round2it

I’ve also styled an adorable leatherette Eva Varro skirt this week. I wore it as part of Gail, of Is This Mutton‘ s #7DaySkirtChallenge. (Will be posting a full review of the skirts I wore all week, and do a Linkup with Gail next Tuesday on this!!) But here’s a teaser to what you’ll be seeing in next week’s post…The week kicks off with this adorable Eva Varro skirt:

And so thankful to have been featured by Oh My Heartsie Girl and by Gail of Is This Mutton, and also by Michelle of My Bijou Life Online– for my hodgepodge print mixing outfit! I love mixing prints- and it makes me so happy when others appreciate my styling (not everyone does- I’ll leave it at that!) It’s just that this kind of styling just makes me so happy- don’t know what it is!

And now onto my FAVOURITE FASHION DIVA of the LINKUP PARTY: Iris of La Moumous!!!

Ok…WOW!!! How Splendid is she!!! Iris has impeccable taste ALWAYS!

And- My FAVOURITE READ from the LINKUP PARTY: How to Host YOur Own Clothing Swap – Second Hand Style, by Suzanne Bell

I’ve actually never been to one and am dying to!! Sounds like so much fun- and you should see the prep behind it all! This is a fancy fun and glam event. I loved this post!

The Thrifty Six Does Plaid!

I’m so thrilled with this blogger collaboration that’s coming to you every 3rd Monday of the month with a fun thrifted or vintage theme!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is thrifty-six-2-1.jpg

This month’s theme is PLAID! I have to admit I do have a few pieces of plaid in my beloved closet…but I honestly don’t style them up enough! I don’t know why…maybe squares are not the first things I’m attracted to? Well that’s gonna change! From now on, amma style me up some good loving hodgepodge- you just wait and see!

“The Thrifty Six: “Check” Out Our Preloved Styles in Heritage Prints”

This vintage plaid dress has been hanging quietly for too long.  I mean just look at her personality- I just had to take her out for a spin!  She’s also super versatile, in that I love styling her up as a coat too!  Everything about this (except the reversible Gucci belt) has either been thrifted or bought ages ago (some even decades!).

But that’s not all! This dress not only fits me way better than back in the 80’s (scrawny thing with the hugest shoulder pads thinking I was so cool lol!)- It also doubles as a coat!! OMG I love it this way even more! Not sure if I prefer the patent boots with it or the red cowboys…Your thoughts?

Please visit all my lovely friends to see more of their gorgeous outfits and to get to know them better!

“I found this dress in a charity shop recently for less than £5. Blue and brown is a very on trend colour combination for this season, although that isn’t why I bought it. I love to wear all types of check patterns in Autumn and Winter, and this dress is great for layering over a thin roll neck sweater and tights. It has pockets too…happy days!”

“If I were home right now, I would’ve had plenty of thrifted plaid/check/houndstooth pieces to choose from. But unfortunately, I’m away at college with only 17% of my wardrobe (gasp!), which meant I had to get creative for this month’s collaboration. I made a quick stop by a local thrift store and was largely unsuccessful, so I decided to try out a thrifted man’s flannel instead for the sake of this blog post. I decided it would be fun to turn it into a lil’ style challenge to see if I could make a huge male shirt flattering… How did I do??”

“The traditional to the avant-guard…The Thrifty Six are showcasing Heritage prints this month and here I bring you Royal Stuart Tartan – Highland Heritage in its purest form! It can be traditional or somewhat avant-garde. I go both ways, buttoned-up Victoriana to raw Punk Rock; reminiscent of Vivienne Westwood back in the anarchic 1970’s…I bought the skirt and waistcoat separately (on eBay), they’re from two different brands but the fabric is identical in every way so they make a perfect suit. They’re both vintage and the waistcoat has a very interesting brand label.  It says… ‘Susan Barry – the clothes that men admire’ I’m really not kidding – HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED!!!!”

Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style

“When I heard that the theme for this month’s collaboration would be check, I thought: ‘Oh boy, have to search for something checked online!’ But instead I searched my closet and there came out my old checked tweed skirt. The funny story about the skirt is that I had bought this one years and years ago in the shop where I used to work. I gave it away at one point and discovered it two years ago on the preloved online shop. And bought it again! Just love the tweed and Chanel-esque feel. Especially with all the pearls!”

“When Emma announced the checkered theme for this month, I used it as an excuse to go thrift shopping. I definitely have plaid and checked preloved items in my wardrobe, but I don’t venture out much these days so it was the perfect excuse. I found this adorable black and white gingham dress (NWT) and these camouflage joggers (NWT) during that trip. I had no intention of wearing them together until I saw them lying in my cart next to each other. It was a match made in print mixing heaven! I added this preloved velvet off the shoulder sweatshirt because the dress is sleeveless and it’s getting cold around here. My furry clutch is also preloved (Poshmark). And the tie in my hair is the belt from the dress. We headed off to the park to capture some of the beautiful fall foliage in my photos.”

We will be back next month with another pre loved theme!
