Sunday's OOTD at High Tea

On Sunday I met my fabulous girlfriend's at Fairmont's Pacific Rim in Vancouver for high tea. I sipped on earl grey tea, snacked on sushi and of course, chatted up a storm. Typical women of course!

I went shopping this weekend and went a little crazy at H & M. I purchased these burgundy faux leather pants that I wore on Sunday. They fit amazing, the color is my fave for this season and they were only $34.99!

If anyone would like to see a blog post on what I purchased from H & M, leave a comment and I'll do that for you :)

I paired the faux leather pants with a bright white Equipment Signature silk blouse, Hermes belt and Christian Louboutin gazolina suede thigh high boots (which kill my feet btw, as most Loubs do). I intended on wearing this outfit with a black faux fur Michael Kors vest but it was surprisingly sunny out, so I went without it.

My outfit inspo! Ciara in the same blouse I wore, Leather pants and Loubs!


Equipment Signature silk blouse in bright white. The quality of this blouse is incredible. Definitely worth  the expensive price tag. I intend on purchasing this blouse in more colors soon!


So in love with these boots. I wish they didn't abuse my poor feet the way they do lol


I'm so in love with these pants!! I'm obsessing over anything burgundy/wine color this season

OOTD Saturday/Wedding Attire


Yesterday was a very special day. I attended a very close friend of mine, Mallory's wedding!! The wedding was fabulous. She looked unbelievably gorgeous and her husband Chris looked very handsome as well. The food was amazing, the decor was beautiful, the entire day was perfect. So very happy for them both!

For my outfit, I wore a silk dress by Parker, Christian Louboutin lady peeps in nude and a Chanel pst bag in nude as well. The dress is very classy and beautiful. Perfect for a wedding or formal event. I intend on buying it in another color!

Buy the exact same Parker dress I wore HERE in the color blush.

My hair looked very fabulous for the first hour lol. The photo to the right was right after I finished curling it. I used a 1 1/2 inch curling iron and curled away from my face. I had requests on instagram to do a tutorial on this look so I promise to film my first tutorial this week!

My natural hair is very thick (even after all the damage i've done to it over the past few years) so my hair always loses it's curl after about an hour lol i HATE it! I use a lot of hair spray too and it still doesn't hold. If anyone has any tips on how to make a curl hold longer, please share :)

OOTD'S This Weekend

This weekend I had two events to attend. The first was my friend Nikki's birthday party and the second, was my friend Mallory's bridal shower.

For Nikki's birthday I wore this Elizabeth & James dress with black opaque tights and Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps. I LOVE the leather detailing on this dress! I curled my hair and wore red lips. I didn't wear any eyeshadow, just liner to really showcase the red lip. If you're wearing a red lip or any bold lip color, I recommend wearing very little, to no shadow so you don't look like a clown lol it's just too much in my opinion. Pick either eyes, or lips to really play up the look, not both!




With the gorgeous birthday girl! I curled my hair and by the time I arrived at Nikki's, all the curls pretty much fell out lol so I touched it up at Nikki's (you can tell by the photo on the left)

I am SO obsessed with this Vince Camuto top!! It's a nude/champange color with black sides and zips up the back. The nude color is silk and fits perfect. I wore my leather pants from Guess with my Gucci motorcycle boots. I also wore a black blazer from H & M with it.

Here's a closer look of the makeup I wore. I haven't been wearing blush lately, just defining the cheek bones with bronzer and a highlight.

That's it for this weekend's OOTD pictures. Will try and get some video's going this week!
