Snow, snow go away!

I woke up this morning to more snow! I am ready for winter to be over already. Every weekend it has just been too cold and damp to want to do anything fun. We’ve been staying home too many weekends and boy are we ready for some nicer weather. We have so many places we want to explore and once we have nice weather we’ll feel more inclined to be outside.

But until then I’ll just enjoy wearing my favorite cardigan sweaters and turbans. I now have this sweater in 4 colors and I’m absolutely in love with this new style and pattern of turban.

And let’s not ignore these amazing shoes I recently found in a local vintage shop. I hardly ever find vintage shoes that fit me, so when I found these (and another adorable pair), I was ecstatic! I pulled it all together with a lovely thistle brooch with a beautiful blown glass floral motif in the middle.

Now off to go grocery shopping.

Dress Review: Miss Candyfloss – Kassandra-Lou dress

 

This past summer I was contacted by Miss Candyfloss about collaborating with them to review a few dresses. As I have a couple Miss Candyfloss pieces (Sheila Lee Playsuit and Odette Kat Dress), I jumped at the chance to work directly with the company. I sent them my measurements and a list of a few dresses I was interested in and they chose two lovely dresses for me.

The “Kassandra Lou” is the first dress. With accents of black/white/grey tartan, 3/4 sleeves and a mid-weight stretchy fabric, this dress is a perfect addition to my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. The fabric is a great medium weight as it can be worn on warmer days, or you can add a pair of tights or maybe a light petticoat for colder days.

I adore the pleating on the bust and the raised collar gives a nice accent. The detail on the sleeves is a lovely touch as well.
