Wardrobe Wrap Up - Fall 2013

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Wowzers. I almost put Fall 2012! Where has all the time gone? Sometimes I still feel like it's 2006 (or 1998.) To think that it's almost 2014 blows my mind a little bit. This Buzzfeed article sums up how I feel perfectly. It's almost like I didn't realize how quickly time was passing until I sat down and analyzed it (thanks for pointing it all out to me, Buzzfeed!)

Unfortunately though, this fall hasn't felt like fall at all. It's felt more like winter. I know this winter is going to drag on for a long time because it was freezing and snowing in November. I want time to slow down but not in a miserable type of way. I want happy, fun time to be slow. I only want time to slow down if it's the kind that is meant to be savoured!

But enough of that. I complain too much. I feel like I'm turning into my Gramps. Always a cranky bear. Onto the point. I'm here today to post a wardrobe summary of my fall looks, since fall is almost ending.

I started fall off with a love of patterns by modelling a retro style Louche dress and pretty Poetic License booties.

Next up, I experimented with some city skyline tights by pairing them with a 60s mod styled twofer.

I took inspiration from one of my favourite movies, Sound of Music, by wearing local Windsor, Ontario designer, Dilly Daisy.

Some more terrible indoor photos (because I'm a cool cat who forgets to put on the flash) but good news is I match the heels of my shoes to my dress, woot!

For my latest outfit post, I wore a very cheaply made dress (it looks like a Hallowe'en costume in person) but it actually photographed pretty well. I might even try to rock it out in public sometime! I just have to remember to give it a good steaming first.

What were your favourite looks that you rocked this season?

  1. I absolutely love your outfits!!
    Agreed with the time, have no idea where it has gone. :/


  2. You have beautiful style! I love the way you did your hair for these photos!

    1. I don't know if you mean the curly or straight version but either way, thank you! For the curly version, I literally do nothing. I don't even comb my hair! Just place a few wayward curls where I think they should be or pin them if they are really unruly. The straight hair is another beast. I have to use like half a jar of pomade wax stuff for those photoshoots. Needless to say, I try to do as many outfits as I can on those days!
