Bundled up

Dec 12, 2013

Today I'm doing my happy girl dance because I finally narrowed down all the products for my shop. Here's another sneak peek via my instagram for you guys. You'd think ordering everything would be easy, but since I wanted a well merchandised and cohesive feel to the store, I had a pretty large amount of products/suppliers to sort through. Not complaining, just thrilled we're getting closer to opening our virtual doors. For now, the plan is to keep it small. We'll have about 20 - 25 products with a strong emphasis on jewelry and a small sprinkling of women's clothes, scarves, tote bags and stationary.

Thanks for letting me get that out! ;) Honestly, this project is taking up most of my brain. Store, store, store... is what it sounds like in my head these days. As for my outfit? I styled up one of my favourite dresses for one of our coldest days so far this fall. Vancouver has been insanely cold, but thankfully, I was plenty layered and bundled. Plus, Martin & I kept warm by lunching at one of our favourite hot pot restaurants. I love ordering their vegetarian plate and loading up on yams, carrots and tofu. An absolute favourite!

Outfit Details:

Jacket: Forever 21 / similar
Cardigan: Martin's (currently being held hostage by moi) / similar & awesome
Dress: Forever 21 / similar
Necklace: Stella & Dot
Tights: Joe Fresh
Boots: Old Navy

24 sweet notes:

  1. Cute outfit. My daughter would love this outfit. She loves lace dresses. I like how you added the military jacket and boots to tone down the feminine dress. That's exciting about your new store!

  2. it has been a winter to remember - our chill down here in oregon is awful! lovely dress, though! you must be more acquainted to the chill than i!


  3. I like the layers you have on and I love your shoes!

  4. It's so exciting to hear updates on your store, V! It sounds like everything is coming along just brilliantly and I'm so excited to see the final result in the new year :) On a fashion-related note, could your lace dress be any lovelier? I think not. And the unexpected pairing with a casual khaki jacket and booties we a brilliant choice. Happy Thursday, my friend!

  5. Love the white dress paired within that cardigan! Perfection! And yay, so excited for your store!!!

  6. Aw, thanks lovey! I must say the dress is on constant rotation... so easy to style. As for the weather? Vancouver and Oregon actually share the same temps. We're both on the West Coast! :) Stay warm!! xoxo

  7. Melissa, thank you!! You're such a sweetheart and I can't wait for you to see the new shop. Plus, thank you for your email... I'll get back to you later today! xoxo

  8. Congrats to you Veronika! I'm sure it takes a lot of work to do what you do and it feels great to mark things off of a to-do list! Well done! Love that dress with the military jacket!

  9. LOVE!!!!

    i hope you can stop by and return the favor.

  10. So pretty...the contrast of the military-inspired jacket with your lace dress!! And booties look great with just about everything, don't they?! I'm sure that Martin doesn't mind that you've (temporarily?) taken ownership of his cardigan; not when his wife makes such a lovely lunch date!!


  11. ahhh, are those the Old Navy boots you were talking about scoring?! they're rad V!! and another shout out to M's sweater. no negotiations, you gotta keep that baby closeby at all times incase he plans a covert counter-strike. haha!!

    this outfit collaboration is pure beauty walking on long legs. i love a good lacey dress and this ones a winner in my eyes. cute look for your lunch date and the food sounds amazing too! i'm still reeling over my super insider sneak peek at your shop V, words cannot express my sheer and explosive happiness over everything you're doing right now!!! xo
