Layering with ModCloth!

Hello beautiful people!

Today I want to talk about layering. In the winter this can be a crucial yet cute way to keep warm and still look good while you do it! Using clothes from ModCloth, I’m going to show you guys how I like to layer!
ModCloth is a clothing website that has a very wide variety of styles for women of all shapes and sizes. A lot of their clothing has quite a vintage feel, and some of it is also very casual; it’s definitely a website that carries unique and adorable clothes, with something for everyone. After working on this post, I’m definitely going to need to place an order, because I saw about 1000 things I want to get! If you haven’t checked out their site, please do! You will not be sorry.

I decided to go with a bold cardigan and a cute collared shirt to go underneath.
I picked a plain white tank to wear underneath the blouse because white tops can be a little sheer, and the tank offers coverage as well as an additional layer of warmth, and really who doesn’t need a good basic tank?
The collared shirt has beautiful pleating and lace detailing around the collar, but I particularly love that it doesn’t have sleeves, because I hate when sleeves get bunchy under a sweater. This blouse has a nice fit: it’s slightly slouchy, but I feel like it would still be flattering on curvier figures, and the lace adds an air of sexiness while still being sophisticated.
The cardigan is really the star of the show; I went with yellow because people (myself included) have a tendency to wear a lot of deep colours in the winter, so I thought this cardigan could really brighten up the look! I also love the scallop detailing around the collar, and the fact that it’s two-toned adds interest without taking away from the shirt underneath. A cardigan is going to keep you warm, while still being fashionable, not to mention ModCloth has some of the cutest cardigans and sweaters  I’ve ever seen.

I would pair this kind of top ensemble with dark jeans, booties, a nice warm jacket and some mittens to keep your hands toasty.

Modcloth really is a great site to pick up unique pieces for a reasonable price. Like I said, I will definitely be placing an order very soon!

Until next time,

fashion & random stuff haul!

Hello beautiful people!
I’ve done a bit of shopping over the past couple of weeks and thought I’d share what I picked up with you guys! It’s a little bit of everything from a few different stores!

From h&m I picked up 3 tops! The first one is a silky material with short sleeves and a little v in the front; I loved this as soon as I saw it because it’s white and covered in little red hearts. It’s a little bit slouchy but I still find is flattering for my figure, I’d wear this with dark jeans and really any kind of boot or shoe($20).

Next is a grey sort of stripy top that goes quite long in the back, it’s a jersey material and super comfy. I think it will look super cute with tights and a big cardigan and a scarf, it’s just a perfect casual t-shirt for fall ($20).

The last top I picked up is another t-shirt with a cartoon hand making a peace sign but I couldn’t resist because of the glittery red nail polish! Again I think this will look good with jeans or tights and a scarf or some cute boots; just another good comfy fall tee($15).

Next I went to forever 21 and picked up these booties ($32). I love that they’re grey because I feel like they’ll match absolutely everything, and the heel is super thick which makes them comfortable to walk in.

Then I found this great basic black dress in old navy ($30). I thought this was a great addition to my wardrobe for fall and winter because it will definitely look great with lots of different bottoms and shoes. I love basics because you can play them up so well with accessories, I could wear this with flats and a scarf to make it casual or with a statement necklace and some heels for a date night or event. It has a very flattering fit for my figure but is still cotton with a little bit of stretch which makes is super comfortable, I’m super happy with this purchase.

That’s it for clothing but I did go in to Davids Tea which is a Canadian loose leaf tea company that originated in Montreal. I like to get my teas from here because some of them are certified organic and they also just have incredibly unique flavours of tea as well as seasonal collections. I had a couple of gift cards to burn so I picked up a new thermos, this one is glass with a silicone slip to make sure you don’t burn your hands. It also has a little mesh basket with a lid so you can brew your loose leaf tea and drink it without having to worry about getting the tea leaves in your mouth! I also picked up a couple of teas to try out!

Last but not least is the product I’m most excited about picking up despite its price and it’s the new YSL Le teint encre de peau foundation ($64). I am in love with the product! It has a liquid to powder sort of formulation but just looks incredible on the skin, it also has quite a fresh scent; almost like cucumbers. It has a sort of weird spatula applicator but for hygiene purposes I just dump a little only the back of my hand and apply it with a brush. This has a pretty matte finish and I’d say medium to full coverage but it doesn’t budge all day despite its very light feel, and just has a beautiful effect on the skin. It makes your complexion look even and healthy, I would definitely recommend going to get a sample of this stuff because it is amazing, this will definitely be in my make-up bag for a long time.
