Converse Spring 2016 Preview

Debbie and I recently had the pleasure of attending the Converse Spring 2016 Preview event at their new Canadian headquarters in Old Montreal. Every year, we are more and more intrigued by their unique take on footwear. Tons of bright colours, and unique patterns and materials seem to be a staple their Spring launches. This year, the crotched high-tops caught Debbie's eye while I was simply ticked pink by the Chuck II Reflective Print Collection featuring patterned sneaks that have portions that light up and sparkle in photos taken with flash. Their new headquarters also feature a pretty unique Converse chandelier and other art pieces that perfectly accentuate the feel of their brand. We can't wait to see what they come up with next!

Boudoir 1861

Recently, the Bouquet of Frocks girls attended the official launch of the brand new Boudoir 1861 boutique. We already loved the original 1861 boutique and it only seemed natural that they would expand and open a sister store that was specialized in all your bridal fashion necessities. The wedding gowns themselves are so lovely and romantic and more importantly, affordable to the average Montreal girl. They have all the necessary bridal accessories you could think of and even some selections for bridal parties. In keeping with the image of the 1861 brand, the boutique has that perfectly vintage and romantic decor which is so undeniably charming. The event also featured the usual array of tasty hors d'oeuvres but most memorable was the live music provided by Shy Shy Schullie, a local musician who specializes in burlesque style retro tunes that just warm your heart. Definitely a great evening. 


Boudoir 1861 is located at:
3668 Saint-Laurent Blvd

Happy Hearts Day!

Valentine's Day doesn't hold a candle to Christmas for me, holiday-wise, but there is something about February that does draw me to all the pinks and reds. It could be the fact that it's the dead of winter and the summer pangs are at their worst....

Whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not, a little rose gold eye shadow and bright red lip never hurt anybody. Happy hearts day, Frockers!

Montreal Street Style


Calvin Klein coat
Winners sweater dress
Simons collared shirt and mittens
F21 necklace
Kate Spade handbag
Michael Kors boots

It's been a while, Frockers! Between hibernating, work and personal projects, it's been tough to post as often as I used to. Here's a bit of street style featuring basically my winter uniform....the beloved sweater dress. I've been living in this thing pretty much all winter! It's so comfy and easy to layer with accessories, shirts and scarves to completely change the look.

What are some of your winter go-to pieces?

Winter Finally Caught Up To Us



Calvin Klein coat
Aldo hat
Simons mittens
Hush Puppies boots
F21 jeans

Winter was a bit of a no-show at the end of 2015, but we weren't really complaining. I'm assuming it was all to do with the fact that I finally replaced my old down winter coat after like 5 years and my equally old snow boots with the hole in it. I prepared for a long, cold winter so it decided not to come. You're welcome Montreal. But alas, all good things must come to an end. Winter is here....but at least I'm ready!

Best of 2015

We were pretty busy in 2015 but still found a bit of time to have some fun with fashion and beauty. Lots of new discoveries were made and trends were explored and we are looking forward to another year of style adventures. Here's a look back at some of our favourite shoots and thanks as always for hanging out with us!
