Tribute to BBM

Hi loves!

I know that probably all of you know about
BBM's Lucky's Month of Outfits Calendar and I tried one myself! Here is my day 14 with a twist!!

On another note, I think this will be my last post for a little while! I will try and get to a computer during my trip but I don't think it will be that easy. It only means that you all need
to be back here on May 24th because I will start posting pictures... loaddds of pictures!!
Love you all!!

No rain

Hey sweets!

Here is a dress I thrifted that is so 80's I could do an indegestion but I wont cauz I loooove it too much! The belt was also thrifted something like 5 years ago and it is crazy how perfectly they go together! What do you think? Should I bring this dress with me on my european trip? And do you see my smile? Preppy thinking works!

Pretty Preppy

Hi lovelies!!

First of all, I want to thank Sabina at http://femmefatalexsabina.blogspot.com for the wonderful interview! It's the first time anybody has ever talked about me in german and I feel very lucky that she took the time to write this article! Go and have a look if you have a little time! She writes about plus-size fashion in general and I personally discovered other great fashion bloggers through her!

Here is the link for the post about me! http://femmefatalexsabina.blogspot.com/2010/04/vorstellungsrunden-plus-size-fashion.html

On a completly different subject, I have a new fashion mantra! You know if you’ve read my previous post that I want to have a new positive outlook on life. I was doing a project for school on Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein and kind of got in a Preppy mood and starting doing researches on the subject. Well I found on http://e.how.com some very inspiring and interesting infos on how to be preppy and I think that as an attitude, Preppy sounds quite an awesome way of life! I know I’m not smiling on my pictures but let’s just say I’m in a modelish vibe, but for the Preppy girl, it’s all about the smile!!

Read on if you want to know a little more!

“ Get the attitude. An important quality of a prep is their ability to be happy, bubbly, and very social. Look on the bright side all the time and be happy with who you are, and encourage people to do the same.

Act friendly and outgoing... a little shy is OK, but be nice. Smile. Stand up straight. Avoid getting people angry. Forget talking about money or politics-it can put people off. Being snobby shows poor breeding.

Preps have a friendly attitude and good manners. Read Etiquette books or take etiquette classes. Good manners are very important to preps. It shows people you have had a good upbringing. Use basic politeness such as please, thank you and excuse me. Be considerate and hold doors for people.

Be social; make new friends and practice being more outgoing. Throw a party for no reason every so often. Try to keep the party drug- and sex-free. You can be the life of the party but still be classy at the same time. For example, if you are at a party you won't be anti-social or drinking like a drunk and slobbering all over the place. Rather, you will have nursed one drink all night, socialized, and will not act like an idiot. “

Sooooooo? How do you feel about those recommendations? Would you want to be a preppy girl?

Thanks for visiting my blog and please comment, I love comments and will make sure to come and visit your blog if you have one!

Happy happy sunshine

Hello sweets,

Yay I have a new camera! I hope you guys can see the difference! I bought it for my trip! I am so excited! But I still have 4 exams and 3 projects to give back before leaving... Anyway, I have an amazing friend, lets call her Amanda, she has the most amazing outlook on life, she's honestly like a ray of sunshine and she always has a great smile on her face. She made me want to do the same, and the smiling part is the first I'll put into action, starting with my new pictures! This is a happier me, a smiling me!

About this outfit: The skirt is thrifted and I shortened the hem. The lilac blouse is from this canadian store called Costa Blanca. The jacket, most amazing peace, was a gift from my ex boss/new friend who runs a styling agency here in Montreal. She transformed this coat for a DIY story and gave it to me because it fitted... how amazing is that! I love it so much! You should really take a second and check out her website, it's great and I really love the videos a lot, she also has a facebook app about personnal styling! besleek.com/

So take in the sun, the spring is here, my favorite season, why should'nt we smile?

Diamond in the rough!

Hi loves!

You know by now how much of a thift shopping junkie I am! I do it allllll the time, and yesterday was no exception but will post about that tomorrow or the day after. Something like two months ago, I went into this enormous thrift shop that sells horrible stuff but sometimes, you can find diamonds! And that's what I did! This is an original vintage Diane Von Furstenberg dress, in a size 10! Yes you read well, I'm a 14-16 and fit into this size 10!

I wanted to know the exact collection for which it was made so I emailed the company and they found that is was from the late 70's early 80's! I am in loooooove with this dress! With this tan braided vintage leather belt, some necklaces from my huge pile, my golden bracelet and those pretty sandals and I am ready for a picnic or a stroll in a hay field!

What do you think? Isn't this dress in itself amazing??

Hey dears!

So the other day I went shopping with some friends and they obviously wanted to go and take a look at Zara which I boycott because their XLarge is actually a vrey small Large! We get in and shop around and I see this gorgeous black trench coat with mirrored buttons exactly like what I was looking for! I try on the XLarge and obviously it doesn't fit... Kind of disappointed, I shrug and just keep on looking at stuff from this hellish place (because the clothes are so pretty and nothing fits me). At the very back of the store, there is another rack with the same trench on it. I don't know why but I look at them and find an XXL! On a Zara tag! I try it on, love at first sight, I buy it and have been wearing it ever since!

I hope they will augment the quantity of stock they carry in those sizes!

And my wedges are from a sale at Urban Outfitters. In my opinion, no heels are more comfortable than wedges! And flattering! What do you think?



That's how hot it is in Montreal

Hey sugars,

I think I am the worst blogger! I wish I could and would wright every single day, but I don't... Anyway, if you look at it on the bright side, when I do, I have interesting things to say! First of all, I'm leaving soon on a 5 country trip to Europe! I can't wait I'm so excited! I'm doing Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Italy and France.

I'll shop so much! Loads of new clothes for meeee! YESSSS

Secondly, in Montreal, summer has arrived! I'm so excited even though I hate heat... Yeah, I'm weird like that...

So this dress I bought in a thrift store and I love it, it's the perfect summer dress! The sandals are from this online shop called One Stop Plus and they make shoes for people with larger feet, like me... And my necklaces are my babies! They all come from some kind of thrift or flea market and might have been modified by me at some point.

I wish you all a great day, ringette is calling my name!
