Hope, you, guys, had a great week and are having an even better weekend!
My name is Nadya. I came to Canada from Russia about eight years ago. I work as a software developer, but in my spare time I try to forget about programming by blogging about fashion.
One of my passions is local Canadian designers. To me, it is important to support local arts and crafts communities; it is beneficial for everybody. Plus, the guys make great stuff! They have it all: High quality, interesting cuts, and nice fabrics.
Every week-end I will be showing you self-styled outfits and photos I take of myself in front of Quartier Mode with their items.
Today, let me present a clutch bag from Noir de Mars, a dress from Birds of North America, and ear clips from a vintage collection by Melanie.
While going through the store shelves, I spotted this jute clutch with a red polka dot pattern. Jute fabric has its distinguished character; however, it is rarely used in the fashion world. It turned a simple hand bag into a stand-out piece, so I decided to make an outfit that would underline its beauty. It needed something elegant and unshowy. I chose a navy dress from Birds of North America with a black collar and buttons.
High stockings and wedgies added to the outfit some flirty touch, while the massive ear clips supported the overall dressy mood.
I tied the hair up in a sloppy knot to show off the ear clips and to make the look more relaxed.
Red lipstick matches the red polka dot pattern.
Have a good weekend and see you in one week!
