Black Widow


Can you believe we have snow in March and in Vancouver from all the possible places? Craaaazzyyyyy! 
We should be celebrating the start of spring rather than playing in the snow. Cause that's sure what I did this weekend. 
Instead of working on my marketing case, I sled down the hill in my parents backyard, I build a 4 parts snowman, I had a snow fight with my siblings and  squeezed in a little outfit shoot as well. Am I not productive or what?


In other news, the Montreal trip is a no-go. 
Bummer cause I have never been and I was excited to check out the most European Canadian city. I was supposed to accompany my sister this spring to check out the possible universities she would  be attending in the fall. It seems though she has ruled out all the Quebec Universities. 
I think she has her eyes already set on non other than Dalhousie , yes the exact same university that hosted the business ethics competition I participated back in November!


Anyways to make up for this loss, and because she needs a prom dress for June, my mom who is oh so smart has decided to book a-girls-only shopping trip to Las Vegas! 
Although not my first time there, I must tell you that I am super excited. Shopping in Vegas is unbeatable. All major designers have a store there. You can literally get anything you want!
This will be the perfect way to start my 5 month vacation starting in April. What would make it even more enjoyable is if I would for sure know that upon my return in September I wouldn't have to take this damn marketing course again.

From one Vancouver blogger to another, let me just say that you took advantage of our surprise snow fall in such a beautiful and creative way! These photos are stunning and I am absolutely in love with your dress. I'm in the process of trying to organise a little Vancouver blogger meet-up, and would love you to join in if that's something that would interest you :) In the meantime, I'll be following your lovely blog.

You are so gorgeous. You're always very poised and lady-like! Even when the snow is crazy outside, you're still dressed so well. And heck if you went out for a snowball fight in that outfit, I'd give you mad props. Love the lace gloves. Also love that you incorporated many different textures and materials in your outfit. Makes it very interesting and unique.

This is such a fierce look- the colours and drama are beautiful! And isn't the snow insane? Jeeze- I moved from Manitoba to get away from the white stuff! xx

Ilse said...

what a gorgeous outfit, you look so chic! and the weather sure has been weird, I am enjoying the warm sunshine in my tshirt right now but I got to deal with some snow as well last week.. And haha I always get productive as well as long as I don't have to work on assignments or something haha

Damsels said...

i love how you always complete a look with the most perfect of detailed accessories like these gloves

MizzJ said...

Gorgeous outfit! It's almost as if you were transported from another era to now. Vancouver weather seems to be acting even weirder than normal eh? Snow is beautiful, but I'd rather it snow when I don't have to go outside!

KellyAnn said...

i absolutely love the details of the dress. intricate yet bold, and that blue color is beautiful. great pictures :)

a dreamer. said...
