pretty among the plums

farminista purple romper-2

Oh hey there!  It’s Kelsey!  I’m back, and so excited to share this gorgeous wine red maxi dress with you all.

My jaw dropped when I first saw this dress, and I instantly fell in love with the rich, red-purple colour.  I knew that I wanted to style it in our orchard, with our beautiful plum and pear trees in the background.  The floral lace overlay exudes such a wonderful, boho, feminine vibe, and the romper underneath ensures that you never have to worry about your slip riding up!

The dress dips nice and low in the front, so I paired it with a soft and lacey, purple bralette underneath.  What a dream!

Now I just need to find a last minute summer music festival to attend, because this is the perfect outfit for one!

Winter Glam

Luxe

These girls are used to freezing in the snow to get the perfect picture.   They are from Mes Amis studio and do what it takes to make their clients happy, little did we know they like to have fun posing in front of the camera as well!

LuxeThe best fashion advice in this kind of climate is always to over dress, not only does it make you “pop” in a white environment, but it’s also practical as it keeps you warm.  Dresses can be worn with leggings or thick tights and boots.  Palazzo pant rompers are perfect for a winter wedding when paired with the right heels and a warm hat. Accessories make a huge impact and add a little extra sparkle just like the snow.  Our Luxe Collection was created to make you feel special and oh so luxurious, a little sparkle, fur and leather are the beginning.  They are the base we start with to create a glamorous look that helps make the long winter fly by!

Oh, by the way, these lovely ladies happen to have a few kiddos tucked warmly inside watching their mom’s play in the snow.

 

A look that demands to be noticed: your look.

“G.L.A.M…” Those of you who were also raised on the sweet sounds of the early 2000’s can likely already hear the Fergie. While I can say, albeit with a little nostalgia, that my taste in music has advanced somewhat since then, I have more or less stayed true to a certain inclination I’ve always felt towards richly detailed and luxurious looking fashion. This, for me, has long been a fitting means of externalizing my passions both dark and dream-like, sensual and ethereal. While dabbling, like all angsty teens, in a lot of the trends and moods portrayed by my friends, I eventually learned that finding your way to “do you” on the outside is loads more convincing, compelling, and gratifying than chasing a look that doesn’t feel your own.

Finding out what’s “you”:

One phrase that often pains me to here is “I love it…” or “it’s beautiful… but I could never pull that off”.

 

Girl.

 

You can pull off whatever the heck you DESIRE to pull off and that’s where it ends.

The best way to discover what works for you is to allow yourself to try things that attract you, even and especially, when you feel it’s something a little more eye catching than what you may be used to. It’s often through nudging ourselves outside of our usual that we are able to find our greatest loves. And hey, if the mini was beckoning you sweetly, but didn’t do it for you in the end – totally fine – there are plenty of pencil skirts to be found! Point is: attractiveness comes from a confidence in your person and in the way you’ve chosen to present yourself, not from how high or low your outfit ranks on the scale of fashion bravery or how well you conform to what someone else thinks is “hot”.

For me, glamorous onesies and bohemian… well actually all things bohemian.. are how I choose to express my inner mystery, but if the boyfriend jeans are more your thing, then just do you, and do it lots – the only way to truly look confident is to relentlessly love and express who you are.

 

So what makes you feel glamorous?
