All Saints + Theatre

All Saints Dress, Dee Dee, personal style, swarovski cuff
I loved this dress from All Saints when I first saw it in the flagship store in Seattle - so much so that I was willing to pay about $350 Canadian for it. I think I can safely say it was my first real designer purchase (of my own).

Sunday Baking ~ Gerbeaud


Gerbeaud is one of my favourite desserts, originating from Hungary. It's a cross between cookie and cake – layers of jam and walnuts sandwiched between multiple layers of cookie dough. The dessert is famous in Hungary, and Cafe Gerbeaud is the place to go if you want to get it (or any other dessert, seriously, they're one of the best cafes in the country).

A knit is all you need for winter, and I'm obsessed with them this year. I feel like knit pieces automatically give you that cozy feel I love when the weather gets cold, bonus points if they hang and drape nicely (I have a really hard time finding ones that do).

I'm also super picky about the materials my clothing are made of. I'm not a fan of polyester or acrylic at all, and try to stay away from them as much as possible (all though natural materials blended with them are fine by me, as long as it's more natural than plastic). The unfortunate part — all those 100% acrylic sweaters are super soft and seem to drape and flow better than natural fibres. To me, acrylic means plastic, and that means that after a few washes, that softness goes away and it starts to feel a bit plastic-y. I have heard that some acrylic knits don't do this, and are actually good quality. Does anyone know about this, or am I doomed to cashmere if I want anything to drape well?

Holiday Gift Guide 2013

The holidays are upon us and I haven't even started shopping, minus my sister since she actually told me what she wanted this year. Does anyone else have indecisive friends and family who say, "Oh, I don't know," or, "Anything is fine," or, "You don't need to get me anything?"
So helpful, right? 

Here's a couple ideas to hopefully give you some inspiration for those less than helpful friends and family.

Mori Girl

Vianni, japanese fashion, mori girl

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday. I'm still posting some older photos I took a few days before our giant snow storm. Mother Nature is cruel and I can no longer get away with bare legs. However, on the slightly warmer days (after last week, -15°C now feels like summer), I can get away with this dress and thigh high socks.

Hello again and happy Monday. Sorry for the super long hiatus this time.
Today is officially the last day of class, which means I'll actually have time to blog again! Thank god, because it's addicting and I missed it.
