My Mary Jane Manolos

I can still remember the day these became mine. I was working at American Apparel at the time and had access to the internet on the store's computer. I had placed my bid on Ebay a few days back but now time was running out. A few minutes before the auction was closing, an online bidding war ensued. I remember the adrenaline I experienced re-bidding several times and that torturous wait for the page to reload. Most of all, I also remember my co-workers at AA cheering me on and sharing in the extreme excitement with me. When the ebay auction closed, well obviously, I WON! All I can say is, I'll never forget that day...the day I bought my first pair of Manolos.

Autumn Getaway

 
Photos by Kyler Kelly

I recently went down to Vermont for the first time and for those of you who have never been, just imagine the cutest, quaint, little countryside you've ever seen and double that. It was just miles and miles of red barns, wooden fences and covered bridges. We just missed the foliage peak season, but there were still some breath-taking views! What better attire for a brisk, road-trip getaway than in a flowing pink skirt paired with brown knee-high boots, cream-coloured fuzzy sweater and wool jacket.

A Breeze, the Beach...and a Floral Dress

Hey Frockers! Hope everyone had a great weekend. The weekend here in Montreal was a real rude awakening that winter is almost here. The weather reached the negative numbers and the wind was absolutely chilling. To distract ourselves from this reality, I'm posting my final little instalment of tropical vacation photos. I think the post title says it all. Enjoy!

As most of you know, I recently chopped off my luscious locks but for those of you who hesitate to do the same, here's how to get a cute bob without the commitment.

7-8) Pin the braids into place with bobby pins.

Putting together an outfit is like putting together a puzzle. Not in that there's only one right answer, but the pieces do have to fit together just so. It's that same satisfaction and triumph in finding the perfect shoe or earring to pull an outfit together.

No question about it, this outfit is built around these faux leather pants, a staple in any fashion lover's portfolio. Throw on a warm cardigan, a pair of aviators and all you cool cats need is a wall to lean on. Check, check and check.

Tropical Vacation: Part 2

Hey Frockers! Here is another little series of photos from my recent stay in the Dominican. As I mentioned in my last post, my November vacation was the perfect opportunity to pull out those summer pieces that I purchased at the very end of the summer season on sale. Here is yet another example. This simple, elegant Joe Fresh one-piece was just calling my name and spared me absolutely no mercy with it's 7$ price tag! Enjoy!

Sassy Detective

With the mercury dropping more and more everyday, there's nothing like a classic trench to soften the blow of the imminent long, cold winter. The shorter length and silky belt adds a bit of modern and feminine edge to the whole look and throw in my favourite floppy felt hat and I'm not gonna lie... I kinda feel like a sassy detective.

Tropical Vacation: Part 1

Hey Frockers! It's Debbie and I'm now back in Montreal after spending a week in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. As expected, the weather was crazy hot and I did well by packing my favourite summer attire. What's great about a tropical vacation in the off-season is that you get to wear all your new summer pieces that you grabbed at the end of the season for dirt cheap on the sale rack and haven't really gotten a chance to wear yet (orange shorts seen below purchased for 7$).
