No, I'm not Running for President, but give me your vote.

I entered in this Elle Canada Style Contest with the chance of winning $750. I have reached the top 12 and now the winner is decided through votes. SO if you could find five minutes in your busy schedules to go to this Website and vote for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Just to let you know I plan to buy a new camera with the potential winnings and thus attempt at improving this blog! (So you, the reader will benefit too!)

Thank you in advance,

Copy Cat

I saw this Aldo add (well not this one exactly) a few times and each time I passed by it I thought that I really wanted to make it.

(Sorry for the confusing image, it was the only one I could find of the dress)

Once I found the right fabric (a soft rayon, that flows blissfully in the wind) I quickly made this up.

I feel a little unoriginal by coping the pattern but is anyone these days? Plus I changed mine a bit so there...

How Romantic

Lazy Summer Afternoons

LinkI have recently found myself with more time then I am used to (normally every second of my day is crammed with something to do), So, I have chosen to fill it by curling up in my reading nook, or relaxing in the back yard, and catching up on some summer reading.
The book of choice:

The beautiful, flowery cover makes it even more exciting to read and is so appropriate for the current season.

Check out this Chanel purse. I think I want it. I wonder how much it goes for?

Frump to Fabulous: Maternity Dress Edition

I found this very 90's dress the other day and thought that with a little work it could be a perfect slouchy summer outfit. It was only when I started working on it that I realized it was a maternity dress... Well it's amazing what a difference a hem line can make.
