153/ WHAT I WORE TO THE OTTAWA VINTAGE SHOW

I attended the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show last weekend with my best friend, Laura, and our good friend, Michael. Unfortunately I didn't come home with any goodies this time around, but we still had blast!

It took me forever to get dressed that day. I'm usually the kind of person to throw something on in a hurry so if you give me a little bit of wiggle room to try to put thought into an outfit, it's going to take a life time.

AUTUMN 2016 +SIZE CLOTHING HAUL

I've been doing what I do best - shopping.

I filmed a haul video for you all to show what I bought! If you're unfamiliar with haul videos, I'm basically just showing you what I bought. This is a bit out of my comfort zone but honestly, it was a lot of fun to film! I'm hoping to get more and more into making videos and creating new content. Hope you all enjoy! If you have any ideas for future videos, please let me know!

FALL / WINTER 2016 PLUS SIZE OUTERWEAR WISH LIST

One of the most interesting things about living in Canada is that we really get to experience every season. It's a bittersweet thing, really. It means that you always have to be prepared. It means that having key seasonal pieces (like a winter coat) is essential for combating the elements and trust me when I say that it can extremely hard to find nice plus size outerwear options. When I was younger all that I had available to me were hideous ski coats that really didn't fit my personality or showoff my personal style. There are definitely more options to chose from now and I'm thrilled about that. My plus size outerwear picks for this season range from lightweight to heavy parka and I think there's something in this list for everyone.

152/ 90's x 90's

This is a 90's inspired outfit to go with my new 90's inspired hair. The fuzzy sweater paired with the dainty floral patterned dress and Dr. Martens boots is a great combination. I've been feeling very uninspired with my wardrobe lately but I can always depend on an all black outfit to make me look fab and feel comfortable.

My new hair is my new favourite thing. I had to get a haircut, I absolutely hated it at the length that it was at. I have a lot of hair, and it's extremely thick, so it can be very difficult to manage. It's a lot easier to style when it's at this length and I couldn't be happier about that. Although it's not the most drastic change, I'm still really thrilled about it.
