Birthday Dinner Dress

Birthday Dinner Dress

Happy Spring Friends!!

For my 22nd birthday this past week, my family and I went out to a west coast restaurant on Whyte Ave. The food was OK, but my dress was fantastic!  As previously mentioned in Emi’s Haul, I fell in love with this zip-front dress when she bought it.  The fabric almost feels foamy it’s so soft, and the pockets are made out of this fantastic stretchy material.  It is too comfortable to be such a fitted dress.

I paired it with a basic pair of leather sandals that I just received from my Anthropologie online shopping a few weeks ago : ) I’m so happy with them! I always have great luck with Anthro’s shoes, they always arrive in the perfect size & they’re always super comfortable.

I highly recommend anyone looking for a great basic to go to your local Anthro and try on this dress! You won’t be disappointed! : )

A Summer Haul !

Emi and I hit up the local Anthropologie & found potentially thee best summer items. Obviously Emi shares my love for great clothes and splurged to fill her closet for her summer trips, she was kind enough to share some pictures with me to share with all of you!

Summer Haul !

The stunning white tank pictured above is a delicate doily pattern that flows so nicely, belted or not. It’ll work great with some light-washed shorts & her cowboy boots while we’re vacationing in Vegas in July!! The belt it’s paired with here is so feminine and dainty, it made the top seem softer and more flowy, in contrast to the darker belt she also picked up below.

This darker, more structured belt made the top look more put together & would work great in a number of different outfits. The detailing and colouring in the belt is gorgeous! Definitely a great find!

Next, Emi found this brand new GORGEOUSLY fitted dress. It’s very structured & definitely an amazing dress for a handful of occasions. It’s easily dressed down or up with accessories, making it a great dress to have around for casual dates or a more formal event. I’m definitely going to be trying this on in-store myself next time I’m in… it’s too fabulous to pass up!

Emi’s got a fantastic summer full of trips planned, including Phoenix in just 2 short weeks. She needed something comfortable to wear while walking around shopping and while travelling, as well as something more dressy to wear for more formal dinners (or also shopping, who are we kidding… we always like to look fabulous). She tried on a few maxi’s and found that this adorable striped one would be perfect for anything casual, given the cottony-comfort.

She also picked out this stunning blue and orange printed v-neck maxi that fit her like a glove, which also had pockets *SOLD*! The colours of the printed maxi will also look amazing when paired with her Phoenix-tanned skin in a few weeks.

Finally, Emi needed some basic pieces for work this summer. She picked out this popular silk-front tee that’s simple, but also cut in a very flattering way that shows off your style without showing off too much skin in the office.

Reviews: Keeping in mind Emi is a size 0, everything pictured is xs or size 0.  All the items mentioned fit true to size (if anything fit big, she couldn’t buy it). Both belts were a size small and they fit her with space. The two maxi’s she bought normally fit quite short, but on her they fit at a perfect maxi length. On a 5’6 woman, they would sit a few inches off the floor. All-in-all Emi found some gorgeous & great quality clothes & I can’t wait to see vacation photos!!

Elephants !

Elephants !

A huge trend right now is animal print (no… not cheetah or zebra print… but actual animals)! This is an undying statement at Anthropologie; they’re a company inspired by nature, and they’re constantly rocking nature-inspired clothes.

When I found an elephant printed shirt hanging dangerously close to this elephant printed scarf… I knew it was fate. 1 + 1 = elephant.

It’s an adorable outfit for summer, which is approaching very slowly, as it snowed yet again today. I paired it with some basic Pilcro shorts & voila! Outfit made!

Review: These tanks are so silky soft & lightweight that I bought 2 (in different colours), I also found they fit one full size too large. The scarf is a great little piece, it’s a lightweight knit that will be perfect for summer. Finally, the Pilcro shorts I obviously love, as I now have the same pair in 3 colours!!!
