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!”

Grace of Graceful Rags

“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??”

Jane of Preloved-Vintage-Handmade

“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!”

Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge

“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!

Linkup Party is on! Fabulous Fridays and the Week’s Recap!

Is everyone weekend-ready? It’s going to be Thanksgiving weekend for us here in Canada. But this year will be so different. This pandemic has got us almost on lockdown- well not really, but it sure feels like it since we aren’t allowed anyone in our homes except for those living with us. What are we gonna do?? My husband says he’s still cooking that turkey and I guess the kids will have to do the ‘pick- up- at- Mom & Dad’s- curb’ thing!

So what have I been styling up since last Friday? Well, last Saturday had me posting these fabulous leopard-hemmed jeans by Joseph Ribkoff from 1ereavenue.com. I am crazy about the fit! And you all know how hard it is for me to style and wear jeans if the fit isn’t perfect and comfy. But just look at these!!

And this week I also styled up this gorgeousness of a dress by Eva Varro – LA Designer. I mean can you believe the motif and colours in this beauty?!! I’ll be styling up more of the Eva Varro Collection and posting it for you to see. It’s mind-blowingly stunning!!

And of course more styling challenges! This one was on Instagram for #trendsinyourcloset by @imanorbyah and @annazzon. I styled up a mix of Leather, vests, and mixing prints.

And my favourite challenge always has to be by @affectionatelyaudrey for Intimates worn outside! And it was a double- whammy since Anna and Norbyah both had this in their challenge as well! So it worked out perfectly. Loved wearing my nighty-wear out!

And Thank you so much to the wonderful Michelle of My Bijou Life Online for featuring me!! As well, my beautiful and always there for me- friend Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine9 also featured me (for my post:LIBRA Fashion Styling- ZODIAC Fashionphile Edition ). Thanks so much!

I always feel honoured and so blessed to be part of this fabulous community. I love what we all contribute to this platform- but even more than that, I love what you fabulous blogger ladies are all about!!

And now onto My Favourite Linkup Fashionista of the Week: Lee of Leegalleablonde.com

I‘m crazy about these boots and this whole look!! Isn’t she just adorable!!!

And- My Favourite Linkup Read of the Week was by: Alison of Midlife and Beyond for her post Turning Sixty – No Big Deal! Such a fascinating read that brought me down my own memory lane as well. Such an interesting and fun read that defies ageism and its stereotypes! Loved this!

Turning Sixty – No Big Deal!!  (30th September 2020)

Fashionphile Focus: My Favourite Fall Runway Trends!

Fall is here and it’s time to take a look at what’s trending in the Runways! The fun part of this is not so we can just dream about fashion that we can’t wear! We want to try out styling the trends for ourselves; whether new, or not so new. Even better: Let’s style up with clothes that we already own- straight from our closets!

So, instead of listing the non-ending trends out there (depending which designers you love and follow), I thought I might just pick out the trends that I’m loving most. That kind of narrows things down- and- for what that means in terms of styling…it will be so much easier and faster to put looks together!

So here we go: My Favourite Trends for Fall 2020!

  1. Plaid! Let me just start with a print that I’m just dying to style up! Planning to mix plaid with other prints and looking forward to an eclectic look- OH the possibilities!!

2. Faux fur AND Faux Fur Trimmings! Is it just me who finds this whole look completely luxurious- I mean even with the most casual of clothes! Really loving faux fur – I do collect pieces so I have coats, vests and jackets…I’ve already shared a few look s on my blog and Insta. Planning to do more of this styling for sure!

3. Black is back! Ok- you all know me to be a huge print and colour fan…but I cannot pass up a fantastic black look- ever. Make it as chic as possible please- coz that’s the only way this Diva loves her black.

4. Fringe!! Give me all the fringe- because I love a good swaying movement! Don’t you feel like there’s nothing better than having an extension of yourself leaving a flowy trail…just like a soft breeze. Fringe is probably the coolest way to accessorize even the plainest of garments. So happy I have plenty in my closet.

Know what I mean? Bottega Veneta has got this covered A+

5. Intimate Apparel! Wearing your intimates out? Why not! Tastefully done it can be divine! I just finished styling an intimates look for a challenge (show you that on Friday for my week’s recap). So feminine!

6. Sequins and all that blings! Honestly though, does this ever go out of style (who would want that!)? Sequin illuminates the skin and brings out such beauty and light- Give me sequin all year round!

7. Florals!! And this year noone is doing it better than Naeem Khan- absolutely breathtaking!!

So there you have it!

NOTE: Expect this fashionista to be styling up ALL OF THESE TRENDS this Fall. YES- I promise you, and I’ll be showcasing them ALL in a later post 🙂 If you’d like to join me and want to dress in any of these trends, please Tag me and I’ll put you in my Insta stories!

I put up a Video on Youtube as well as Insta stories- but here it is also. It shows what I’ll be styling up!

First Runway Trend of the Season: Florals on Black!

So for this very first look, I’m starting off with Florals! How fun is this look with these funky boots?! (PS: Can you believe I got these brand new- tags on- booties from my local thrift store??)!!

THEN…just for the fun of it and because I can never resist a transformation…I added slip-on sleeves!!

And after the sleeve addition…THIS is what it looks like!

Which do you like better…With Sleeve or Without??

FABULOUS FRIDAY’S Linkup Party- DIY Time, Looks and Always a Challenge!

Did you think I’d let another week go by without a DIY- I’m trying not to!  I may not post one every single week…but would you believe me if I told you I have a basket filled to the brim just waiting for me to transform what’s in it?  Yes, it’s true. 

Oh well, one thing at a time. Today, I’m gonna show you what used to be pants- and how they became a top!  Because they were mid-calf, I decided to give some length by adding some black lace. Then I cut the crotch part and turned that into the neckline.  Sewed up all hems and flipped my garment bottom- up- and there it was:  A brand new top!!

Check out my fun reel. 

Next, This week I joined a challenge for ‘trends in your closet’ on Instagram.  This one encourages you to shop what you own and find something that’s trending right now.  There’s a list.  So, I basically ticked off a few boxes with 70’s leather, a vest, and texture!  Here’s one look:

I also got to style up a fantastic Joseph Ribkoff top for 1ere Avenue.  I’m super crazy about this peacock color!!  And- the fit is soo good.  It’s part of their Fall collection, but honestly, this one can be worn all year-round (well at least here in Montreal it can!)

Besides that, still trying to finish up reading Jean-Claude Poitras’ book (Montreal designer 60’s-90’s).  Note: It’s in French. Looking forward to posting a review if I can ever find time to finish it!!

And, if you’re into horoscope fashion, this week I wrote a post on Libra Fashion! You can read that here:

I want to say a big Thank you to Jess of Elegantly Dressed and Stylish for featuring me! These silver booties were the stars of my monthly collab for the Thrifty Six. And also a big Thank you to Michelle of My Bijou Life Online for featuring me wearing this shocking pink jacket (turns out it was quite the hit!)

And now onto my Favourite Fashionista Diva from last week’s Linkup Party is…Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine9 for her exquisite look! How gorgeous is this jumpsuit?!! So feminine and chic- and that colour is so perfect on her! Double whammy for the handbag that pairs that look so stylishly- they were made for each other. Love!!

My Favourite Linkup Read of the Week was by, Beth of Sass For Short for her post : Scent of the Season – What’s Good for You

And now Lovelies…Are you ready for a Fabulous Friday’s Linkup Party??!  PLEASE LINK UP YOUR POSTS WITH ME!!!

VIRGO Fashion Styling -Zodiac Fashionphile Edition- (New Series)

In this new series (at every change of the moon lol!), we will be entering the world of fashion by examining horoscope signs through styling preferences and looks! I’m here to offer curve-ball inspiration in case you’re in a styling rut. So perhaps getting inspired by the styles of famous Zodiacs might be just what you need! Should be fun!

Do you dress for your Sign?  I’m by no means a Horoscope expert, but I do love the fun that zodiac associations can bring out! Especially in Fashion. Do you think there’s any relation with how a person dresses, and their zodiac sign? 

September is a month of renewal for me, so I’m beginning with this month’s sign: VIRGO.

Here’s what they say about Virgo:  Firstly, she’s a down to earth, practical kind of girl.  She’s also a Perfectionist- big time.  September fashionistas love earth-toned colours and flattering shapes.  And (this one’s debatable); chic modest looks.  And- although these next particular traits seem to have nothing to do with fashion- they absolutely do:  Virgos are determined, persistent and hard-working.  

I’ve selected my own personal favourite Virgo fashionistas.  See if their style emulates your own.  Even if you’re not a Virgo, maybe you’d like to start dressing like one!

Let’s begin with the queen herself:  Beyonce!  Have you ever seen her look not polished from A to Z?  She looks incredible every single time.  We’ve seen her wearing a lot of gold (which can be a neutral, warm, earthy kind of colour).  Her makeup is never overstated and is perfectly matched.  This woman is unstoppable and her style reflects continued determination to pump out original, top chart material.  Babe Boss.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is beyonce-style-00.jpg

My absolute favourite:  Rachel Zoe.  I find her style is completely chic!  Loving the oversized blazers and maxi’s she styles up.  Her hair and makeup is perfection.  Another staple:  Sky-high platforms.  Her look can easily go from day to evening. Love her!!!  Official Babe Boss.

Ok, who’s never heard of Sofia Loren?  Femme Fatale Icon. Her style is definitely sexy, but leaving most to the imagination.  Her look is curated and works for highlighting her best features and assets.  She is the on-point epitome of glamour. Virgo perfection.

Canadian- born, first digital model:  Coco Rocha…who always looks like she has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’- it’s the Virgo in her.  Poised and always looking guarded; which is more like a regal look in the case of this Supermodel.  Sleek, chic and intense poise. Virgo.

Omg!  Can we talk about MAKING AN ERA EPIC?  Twiggy!! She emanated style to the max.  Her doll-eyed makeup and a la garconne style is what made her an icon and delivered her 60’s message.  Twiggy was the 60’s!  Intensity in her style and simplicity- enigmatic to the max.

Grand beauty Super Model: Claudia Schiffer.  Doesn’t even look like she tried…and yet looks impeccably perfect.  Every strand of her hair (whether the look asks for disheveled or not)- is perfection.  Need I say more:  Virgo.

Who doesn’t adore Zendaya.  She emanates style, fashion and power, doesn’t she?  I find her incredibly avant-garde in her styling.  So original- but always wearing what  flatters her most.  Never exaggerated- just rightly one-of a kind.  Virgo.

Nothing goes unnoticed with this next fashionista that I adore:  Pink.  Have you ever seen her go unnoticed.  Her songs, her attitude and her style; all depict her beliefs and what she means.  Straight to the point.  Virgo.

Keeping the best for last:  Iris Apfel. Ostentatious to the max…and yet, how is it that she looks so chic, poised and ever-so creative?!   There is nothing subdued or modest about her style (unless we’re referring to bodily modesty- because it’s true that she never shows much skin lol!)- other than that, Apfel’s look is a designer’s dream come true.  Her look may have lots going on, but true to her zodiac sign, Apfel’s style is curated to perfection…down to the very last accessory.  She is a master genius of fashion creation at its best.  That type of consistency and flawlessness in detail, is certainly typical of her sunsign.  100 % Virgo.

And now for:  Virgo Fashion Designers!

Karl Lagerfeld.  Yes.  Obviously.  And take a good look at his own personal style.  And…Chanel; need I say more?

Tom Ford.  There you go.

Stella McCartney.  Innovator par excellence.

Thomas Burberry.  Right?

Olivier Rousteing.  Up and coming- and here to stay.

HOW TO DRESS LIKE A VIRGO          

1- Stay chic and look laissez-faire.

2. Wear it like you mean it. Stay cool and confident.

3. Be daring- but keep it together.

4. Keep it all in check. Perection and flawlessness is key.

LET’S TRY THIS!      

                                       . 

My Conclusion of Virgo Fashionistas:  Breathtaking, in your face, enigmatic, straightforward, unapologetically classy, ruling in their own league. They are top creative leaders in this domain.  Effortlessly feminine and always in control. Hard act to follow.

Are you a Virgo?  What is your fashion zodiac preference? 

Stay tuned for next one up:  Libra.  See ya next moon!

Fabulous Friday’s Linkup Party- Back to School and Another DIY!

Uhmm, I know I can’t stop September but, back to school already?? I’m still in flip flops (or barefoot) and wanting to hang out. Meanwhile, my two youngest daughters started classes already. They’re taking them online- no choice. But, that in itself required its own prepping and space-making (and time slots to boot!).  We’re all adjusting! 

The barefoot look.

As for me, I’m preparing!  I don’t begin teaching until late next week.  And on a very happy and excited note, I’ve begun a fantastic collab with a wonderful company here in Montreal.  You’ll be hearing more about this very soon!!

Besides the barefoot look, I’ve been living in jumpsuits and flip flops.
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1461_facetune_19-08-2020-16-37-59-1.jpg
Here’s another jumpsuit fave (I know it looks similar to the top polka dot one- but this one has little darts instead!) Loving my famous (coz I wer them all the time) camelia flip flops. Summer please don’t go!!

Also always fun for me, I’ve done another DIY!  The cold shoulder dress that was revamped (maybe you already saw the post or IGTV on my Insta feed?).  If not, here’s the pic and a little video clip for your enjoyment😊

I have a bunch of things waiting for me to revamp.  So, I’ve pledged to myself to do at least one a week.  They aren’t all worthy of Insta or blog posting (as a lot of it is mending lol!!)- but I will share what I think you might like and want to learn to do as well.

This week I was also featured on Michelle’s blog: My Bijou Life Online!! Thanks so much Michelle for featuring me- I love the ladies you placed me with!! How we wore white!

Now- Let me take a moment to THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN LINKING UP!!!  Honestly, you don’t know how much it means to me!!  And although I may not always comment, I do read every single linked up post- I promise!!!

And from those linked posts, see here which were my picks for this week:

My Favourite Linkup Fashion Diva of the Week: Gail of Is This Mutton

I’m a goner for a great polka-dot!! And this Styling is Superb!! How darling does she look!!!! She added a lime green collier- and that exquisite touch seals the deal for me!

My Favourite Real- Life- Talk- Linkup Read of the Week: by Shelbee of Shelbee on The Edge, for her post: Love Your Body, It’s the Only One You’ve Got.

This post was so on point and very real on all levels- It’s a must read for all women. Thanks for writing about this and on your own personal note as well.

My Favourite Informative Linkup Read of the Week was by Lizzie of : Lizzie and Lace, for her post on : Hidden Crown Extensions Review, Update and Comparison

I loved reading this so much because I’m such a girl who’s all about her mane (you could never tell, right?!). I love reading this type of info regarding anything that has to do with hair or enhancing it!
