I had a wonderful time in Vancouver this past week! We arrived Monday afternoon and had a busy, fun-filled few days before leaving Friday morning. We spent Tuesday at Stanley Park, Wednesday was my sister's graduation, and on Thursday we went to Granville Island before seeing Hairspray at the Stanley theatre. Here are (more than) a few pictures from my trip, hope you enjoy!

I can't step off the cloud

Hey all! I honestly cannot believe how long it's been since I've updated my blog, I'm so sorry. Real life certainly gets in the way of things, huh? I feel terrible though, and just want to note that I absolutely love blogging and have no intention of stopping. I guess I've just been a bit distracted lately.

I'm still looking for a job (ugh!), but I had an interview today that went really well so...fingers crossed! Aside from job hunting, I've been enjoying seeing my friends from high school and meeting new people/making new friends. I really love being back in Edmonton, it feels like home.

I thrifted this dress for $5 yesterday. Pros: the colour, shape, and pattern are all cute as heck. Cons: it's unlined (which means it's a bit see through), the pockets are fake, it's a cheap fabric, and it's too tight in the bust (all vintage dresses are on me, though). That being said, I still really like it. To me, thrifting clothes is about compromise, and that's a-okay in my books.

Dress - thrifted
Grey tank (layered underneath) - Wearhouse One size XXL
Skirt (worn as a slip) - American Apparel size L
Flats - Payless size 11
Belt - Northern Reflections
Gold chain - thrifted
Beaded necklace - vintage, gifted

I believe got the idea to layer the AA skirt as a slip from Rebecca of We Are Large, People. It's a brilliant idea, and it adds a bit of volume to the dress.

I'm going to Vancouver, BC tomorrow for my sister's graduation, but I'll be taking my laptop with me and should still be blogging. I absolutely love Vancouver in the spring, and I'm sure I'll have tonnes of photos to share with you all. Until then, happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canadians! ♥

I Love Colours

The people of We Love Colors were generous enough to send me some tights to review. This outfit was built around the tights, and inspired by the company name. Hey, I love colours too! Check out my video review of the tights at the bottom of this post.

I hope that wasn't too awful, I'm a bit nervous/awkward when it comes to videos.

I forgot to mention it in the video, but every month We Love Colors hosts a contest called Curvy Girl of the Month and winner receives 3 pairs of tights. Hop on over to their facebook page for more information on the contest!
