I want to be an ice princess

November 20th, 2008

“The romance of winter is brief. After a couple of months, even the most dedicated Canadian ice princess grows weary of the cold. But for those first few days, the hus and sparkle of the snowfall are magic, and piling on velvets, shearlings, hats and scarves is a “Lara’s Theme” pleasure. Enjoy it now. Say it with us: “Once upon a time…”.’

(From Canada’s FASHION magazine December issue)

Keep wearing those summer dresses

October 16th, 2008

Don’t store your summer dresses away for the winter yet, darlings. You can definitely get more mileage out of those chiffon floral dresses. I was re-organizing my closet and it dawned on me that I didn’t have to pack up a lot of the dresses I wore in the summer. With some layering, you can absolutely still rock them. I’m wearing this cream dress with the lace overlay, one of my favorite and oldest dresses, with a navy blue boyfriend cardigan that I picked up at Target last weekend, and knee-high socks and Michael Kors platform heels, which I also scored at Nordstrom for cheaps last weekend. With the platform and padded insole, they are the most comfortable high heels ever. I’ve been practically living in them.  Dresses work so well with chunky cardigans or leather jackets, a perfect soft-and-hard combination. And high platform heels or boots are better than flats.

I snapped this out of November issue of Lucky Magazine. I absolutely love these floral dresses from Mina UK. Doesn’t the girl’s outfit look fantastic? Love her boots!

And I love the preppy look on the girl in this Hush Puppies ad. I’m pretty much I have something similar to the blue chiffon dress in my closet. Layer a blue stripy long sleeve tee under it and a cropped knit jacket plus a striped tie scarf, and of course wool tights, you’ll be rocking the girly yet cool look.
