Ive been known to get attached to things and never give them up for months on end. It all started when my Dad and I went on a camping trip and the only gas station near by only sold one thing remotely close to candy : Starbursts. Needless to say, for the week that we were there I bought about 4 or 5 a day and became obsessed with them. Case two, won ton soup. I went through this obsession where I would "need" it every single day, and craved it even when I woke up (yikes!) Fast forward three years to my recent obsessions : sushi, fructis shampoo, sleepy time tea, jane austen, and after yesterday, this dress. The wonderful company Plum sent me this dress and I couldnt have fallen more in love. For one, I love the colors, the shape, the fit, and the fact that it was made in my home country - and even better, Vancouver! Nothing better than local designers..such a fan! Thankyou Plum!

Oh, and can I just say that I am jealous of my Moms entire wardrobe lately? She just bought this leather jacket and I love love love it. Mum, can I have it? ;) But for real..I love having a Mom who likes nice clothes just as much as I do (and is the same size as me, thank you genetics)

Hope you are having a great week! Im off to eat some won ton flavored starbursts now (okay, just kidding) xoxo

  2. You look absolutely darling! My mom and I are now finally the same size, and I've been relishing in the fact for weeks now! Lovely, lovely.

    I hope that the week is treating you well, and I hope that this new job is everything you hoped it'd be! Talk soon,

  3. Man oh man, the print on that dress is gawjuss! And daaannngg your mom has got some style! I think I'm going through somewhat of a Jane Austen infatuation myself nowadays, I started re-reading Pride and Prejudice and a re-read of Emma will swiftly follow.

  5. Go mom!
    I am originally from Ontario and now in BC. Needless to say I miss raiding my similar-sized, fashion forward Mom's closet. I realized upon moving here that I don't own a single pencil skirt! (They were all hers). Ouch!

    And you wear the dress so well!

  11. That is a great dress. I get obsessed with stuff. too. I got really obsessed with peanut butter for awhile on multi-grain bread. I also wore a lot of brown, and turquoise last year. Now I'm obsessed with florals, greek yogurt, turkey, pastrami, and breakfast coffees.

  22. I definitely go through phases of being obsessed with little particular things, especially music. There is usually one song that I play over and over until I move on to the next one. I love your dress and am looking into Plum to see what else they have to offer. You look absolutely marvelous. Consider me a new follower. :)

  26. @Matchless Vision- You won't regret following! She's the best! =)

    Okay anyway I think phases/obsessions are so great. You laugh at them later but you pretty much remember everything crazy during it! From like how you thought of it, what got you into it, why you liked it. I love your obsession story- It's just a great memory. Thank you for sharing! =)

    So I guess now it's outfit time. I dunno what to say but you just always look so darn cute! My favorites of this outfit is the dress and those shoes! SOOO cute. Everytime you wear them I fall more and more in love. Oh and my favorite picture is the one of you smiling cus..I just love smiling photos. =)

  32. Oh love the colors in this. That dress looks so lovely on you! I also have a mom who is the same size as me, and whenever I can't find the piece I'm looking for in my wardrobe, I usually find it in hers!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am just like that! My mom makes fun of me because when I like something, I don't just "like" it, I LOVE IT! Obsessions/addictions are pretty much my life. Harry Potter, Korean BBQ, Disney, pho (vietnamese noodles), the color purple, sushi rolls, etc. So glad that I'm not alone in this!

    So I would also be obsessed with that dress. It fits you perfectly!

    Happy Friday!
