Outfit of the day: Fully Fashioned – Part 1 of 2

Hello folks! I had a full day last Saturday! I spent the morning teaching a lovely little friend of mine how to sew her dolls some cloths. She did great! (I’ll be sure to ask her mom if I can take photos for next time!)

Saturday was the Princess St. Promenade!

Princess Street is the main drag in Kingston. It stretches from the waterfront all the way to the West end of town, where it turns into a highway. The event includes non for profit booths, local shops selling goods, and free activities for kids; including rock wall climbing and jumpy castles.

ImageMy outfit for the first part of my day was a summer dress I just bought this year!

ImageI really enjoy the shape of the skirt. The front and back are long – which covers the important bits – but the sides are short, allowing me to show off some leg. (Which we all know is my favourite thing to show off!)

ImageIt also has straps that tie around my neck, but I much prefer just relying on my strapless bra to old things up. That way I can wear a necklace!

ImageThere are a few factors as to why I bought this dress. Number one; I really wanted a new summer dress, number two; the skirt, and number three; this fabulous retro flower pattern! I haven’t seen anything this dated in a long time. I swear, if I hadn’t bought it from Sears myself, I would have assumed it was made out of an old bed spread from the 70’s.

ImageAs I planned on doing a large amount of walking, wedges were a necessity.

I’m sorry this post was so late, I had planned on posting it with photos of the day, but complications have come up. But I i promise I will post them soon!

BBQ Fun!

Last night was our BBQ! My long time friend Asia and her boyfriend Brett joined us for some crocodile burgers (from the Pig & Olive) and wine, lots and lots of wine.

Image

We had been planing this small BBQ for a week now, and I still didn’t have enough wine on hand! We drank down 5 bottles between the 4 of us.

Image

We had so much food! (I was so hungry I forgot to photograph the table!) But let me tell you it was delicious! Thank the food gods that my boyfriend works in a butcher shop, we get all the best deals!

Image

I called Asia up last minute and told her to come dressed in something very fashionably her! And she didn’t disappoint.

Image

He hair looks fantastic! Asia is so good a braiding her hair into anything, and everything.

Image

Image

You can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl! I thought the cowboy boots were a great addition to her outfit.

Image

And since Brett was feeling left out of the fashion shoot, we decided to throw him in as a man prop!

All in all it was quite a fun night!

Outfit of the day: My Spirit Animal

So, when I was in Amsterdam last year, enjoying the local customs, a friend of mine informed the group that my spirit animal was a Peacock.

Image

I found this ring at a booth in a sketchy ‘mall’ in London, England. It doesn’t fit well, and it turns my finger green, but I cherish is above all my pieces, mainly because of the story above! The necklace I found later and just had to buy it! I do love matching sets.

Image

Although I generally have a love for all shapeless dresses – my collection is extensive – I would have to say, by far, this is my favourite shapeless dress.

Image

The reason I love this dress is because it’s transparent. So I have the option of wearing a slip, or a body suit. Today I opted for a slip!

Image

And of course my nude wedges. Keeping the colour palette light enough for summer.

Dress: Value Village

Necklace: Le Chateau

Ring: Camden Market – London, England

Shoes: Payless

I’m hosting a small BBQ tonight so I have lots of work to do before hand. I’ll be sure to post photos tomorrow! (With a special guest?)

Outfit of the day: Flower Power

Hello again! Day two of my clothing posts.

Image

Going for a much more casual look today. As I had lots of running around to do.

Image

These skinny jeans are my favourite summer find! I bought them at Value Village for $7 and when I tried them on they fit like a glove. I could tell that they had a little bit of wear on the inside of the thigh, but as I don’t wear pants allot, I’m sure I’ll have them for years!

Image

While I was over at a friends house dropping things off her neighbour gave me some flowers from his garden. They are so beautiful!

Image

My boyfriend had an odd collection of candies in a bowl at his house, so I took a ring pop and enjoyed a bout of nostalgia. Don’t worry, it didn’t last long. They’re not as easy to eat as I remembered. Ha Ha! (Also, you get a better shot of these lovely pants!)

Denim Top: Wal-Mart

Pants: Value Village

Rings: H&M

Necklace/Bracelets: Le Chateau

Have a great day guys!

Outfit of the day.

Hello ladies and gents,

This here is my outfit of the day. I’m going to do my very best to post all of my fashions on here. So please go easy on me, as I’m new to consistent blogging.

Image

This skirt was hand made by me. It was at one point a set of drapes. It cost me nothing as it was free. Just some TLC and thread.

Image

I quite enjoy this outfit, because it allows me to show off my legs without being obvious. With a body suit and some booty shorts, I can safely walk around the city in almost nothing! Ha ha!

Image

My lovely cream wedges help to add the hight I love! They show off the lovely frilled trim.

Image

And lastly to finish off the look I added some great jewellery and – in regular Katie fashion – a belt!

Body Suit: Avon

Shorts/Hat: Thrifted

Skirt: Home Made

Necklace: Le Chateau

Bracelet: Addition Elle

Rings: H&M

I hope to keep doing this! It makes me happy to dress with purpose every morning/evening before or after work.

80’s Dance – The dance

We had a blast!

The girls hanging out for pre-drinks.

The dance was so much fun. They had a flat screen that played 80’s music videos, as well as an old school 80’s ‘portrait studio’ with tacky backgrounds.

I won the first prize for best costume.

I'm a real boy!

It included 2 bottles of alcohol, 2 free breakfasts at Star Diner, a slinky, bubblicious gum and tacky Kanye glasses.

I think the best thing was that my boyfriend was willing to dress up with me.

We look so dirty.

We looked like a cute gay couple all night.  Thankfully he wasn’t too keen on my stash; I’m happy being a woman, and would kinda like to keep him around.

Anyways, later days.
