My style: What I learned from friends.

And by friends, I mean FRIENDS.

But really, so much sage fashion advice on that show, from Joey's turkey pants, to Joey wearing ALL of Chandler's clothes to Rachel's "I had a bad day" boots.

So, earlier this year I was watching Friends from the beginning while on my treadmill.
Thank you, Netflix!
I noticed something.  Everything that Rachel, Monica and Phoebe was wearing is very familiar to what we're wearing now.  Which makes me want to scream YAY THE NINETIES ARE BACK!


Some of my favourite fashion were things I sported in high school: baby doll dresses with a tshirt underneath and Doc Marten boots, baggy jeans with a tshirt and a plaid shirt overtop, OVERALLS!!!!!

I picked some of my favourite Friends outfits and decided to show you how I'm wearing the 90s this summer/fall.

Here are my takes :

acid wash/distressed boyfriend jeans dressed up.  (Forever 21)

Acid Wash/Distressed Denim Vest (Forever 12) + Pay Me In Manolos and Mojitos shirt (T&J Design) and palazzo pants.
same denim vest and romper

Acid wash skinnies (JunaRose from White Dahlia in YXE) with neon splatter shoes

Sporting my white waistcoat (which is too big and needs to be taken in) (Forever 21) over my romper with my favourite graduate.
Now if I were in a shopping mood (which, really, give me a Stella and sit me down at the computer to write a blog post about fashion and suddenly I am)...this is what I would be buying that reminds me of the nineties...oh, while coincidentally listening to this:

1) A little mesh (good find, Monique!) :
2) A little monochromatic stripe action (Ali, doesn't this remind you of Kelly's grad dress?):

and because I can't leave you with just a "does that remind you" teaser, here's the beautiful Kelly's dress.  She is the Kelly that I often refer to when I talk about my friend who left us 14 years ago, killed in a car crash at the young age of 21, 5 weeks before her wedding.  The friend who's name Lucia Kelly carries.  Feeling a tad sentimental tonight- she was one of my favourite parts of making the 90s soooo dang fun for us.  On her left, dressed as a disco ball, that's moi. :)

3) A choker!!! I didn't really like these in high school but I will certainly try them out now!
Dear American friends, I know I referenced a lot of things from Qu├ębecoise department store, Simons...but I would just like to point out that it is my favourite place in the world.  You should be shopping there too, because they now ship to the States and because your dollar is killer here!  Canadian shipping on 100$ and free returns. You can't go wrong.  Simons, why don't you have an affiliate program yet??!!

I'm going to stop there, only because I fear for the length of this post if I continue to dive into 90s inspired fashion that I the meantime you can check out the Pinterest board that I'll continue to add to here.
Can't get enough of the 90s either?  Here's an awesome look by InStyle of the 90s fashion that has come back.

Also, for some more throwback fun, I'm going to start a blog series that centres around throwbacks...stay tuned for an announcement in a couple weeks.
Happy Wednesday!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....

Anyway, I'm's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'s sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
