Abducted

Well, not much to say about this outfit. It's soooo cozy and comfortable! Too much for words. Haha. I am wearing my favourite dress with my favourite necklace, favourite shoes (that I can't wear outside right now) and favourite tights. I love to wear warm colours in the winter. It puts me in a better mood, since I'm really not a winter person! I dislike snow gear and road slush as well as the extra-cold Québec weather. Last Friday, it was -21°C outside. Eek! I'm glad I invested in a warm coat this year... It's a camel-coloured duffle coat from Simons (this one). It's lined with soft plush and I love its trapeze shape. So feminine!


Today Gab and I did some errands. There were way too many people at the mall... the Boxing Day sales are still going on, so people rush to the stores to snag ''deals'' that were exactly the same last week. Okay, well, not exactly the same. While Gab was exchanging a too small shirt he received for Christmas, I couldn't resist a Vero Moda blouse (the one that was on my December lust list) that was half priced. I did not have the patience to wait in line for 20 minutes before trying it on, so I just picked a size and hoped for a good fit. I tried it on as soon as I got home and it looks great! Now I must find a way to style it... I'm thinking about pairing it with my fake leather circle skirt (this one). The sheer, blush colour of the blouse and the pearly collar would be a nice counterbalance to the toughness of the skirt. We'll see!

Dress: H&M // Sweater: Pink Martini // Tights: Wal-Mart
Shoes: thrifted via Value Village // Necklace: Urban Outfitters




On a side note - I can't stop listening to Cults' self-titled album. I discovered this indie pop band two years ago when their single Go Outside took its first step into the blogosphere and I immediately dug their summery retro-pop vibe. Their first full length album came out last May (it was about time!) and it's very good. I definitely recommend it if you enjoy xylophone melodies, reverb and sugary girl voices.

Here's the video of their song Abducted.
