A couple of outfits

Hey! I've been super lazy this weekend and did hardly anything. Yesterday I lazed around and hung out with the bf and today I did laundry and went out for dinner with the bf. Yesterday I did pick up some cool sewing supplies: a wrist pincushion and a hip curve for drafting skirts and pants. I'm excited to try them out! Today I tried out the whole tights and shorts look for the first time since I was inside most of the day and could keep warm! What do you think? Tonight I'm just hanging out, catching up on blogs and half watching the Grammy's.

If I were a princess...

If I were a fairy-tale princess, I'd hire Elie Saab as my royal dressmaker. He would make me beautiful dresses like in his spring couture and I would wear them to tea parties with my other princess friends and they would all be crazy jealous. But I would let them borrow a few and we'd go play croquet.

While my story might not make a lot of sense, the moral is that the dresses in Elie Saab's spring 2010 couture are gorgeous. (Photos from

A quick outfit pic

Hey, this is going to be a bit of a short one, as I'm writing it while eat breakfast (a poptart and apple sauce) before work (I don't start until ten). here's an outfit I wore Sunday to chill out and run a few errands. Oh, and I'm thinking of making a resolution to try to post at least two outfits a week. This is mostly because I feel like I'm in a rut with what I wear to work, since nobody sees it because it's covered with a lab coat anyway. But I think looking nice (even if I'm the only one who knows) will make me feel happier at work! Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

Dress: H&M
Jeans (worn as leggings. Are these now jeggings? I don't know, the word confuses me): Buffalo
Boots: Pajar

Christian Dior Spring 2010 Couture

You all probably know by now that I'm a huge fan of what John Galliano does at Christian Dior and that couture is my favourite (usually because there's hats!). So I was definately excited to check out the photos of the show (not quite big-time enough to merit an invite, but oh well, that's what is for). As usually, I thought it was great, especially the begining where the models looked like dressage riders. I love the fitted jackets and they made me consider wearing my hunt coat for everyday, if only it wasn't one of the most expensive items I own. Although I got a couple new ones for Christmas, so maybe I can start wearing my old one. Anyways, I loved the jackets and the gorgeous volumunous gowns. So beautiful! And I love how John Galliano looks ready to take a dressage test at the end. All he needed was a horse! (Photos from

PS: Was I the only one a little freaked out by the eyebrows?

I've never been to anthropologie before, but I can say I'm truly in love with their beautiful printed dresses. I'm always worried about buying online as I tend to have fit issues and besides, I enjoy touching the fabric etc. before a purchase. The good news is, there is a location I was unaware of about three hours drive away, so Im now planning a roadtrip! Here are the dresses I love! (photos from

If I had a larger clothing budget...

I'd wear Valli! Not just to fabulous parties, but also for lazing around my mansion (assuming I also had a larger home budget). These pieces from Pre-fall 2010 are so pretty and look very expensive (which I'm sure they are). But, you know, in my dream world... (Photos from

Zac Posen for Target (or why I wish I lived in America)

This is one of those times I wish I lived in America. Why don't we have Target in Canada? We have Walmart and Bed, Bath and Beyond, but no Target. Which means not arget/designer collaborations for me. But, I can look. I love Zac Posen and there are so many cute things in his collaboration with Target. Especially the tuxedo dress. Love!

Lovin' Lanvin

I'm a huge Lanvin fan and the Pre-Fall 2010 collection did not disappoint. The clothes are classy and pretty and really should make a trip to my wardrobe! Plus I love how the models are posing rather than just standing staring at the camera like lots of pre-fall collection. If it's not a runway, it should still be interesting and these look like they could be adverts in a magazine. (Photos from

PS: Project Runway tomarrow!
