Navy & Gold

If you are like me and require a second set of eyes to avoid walking into walls, then you understand the value of a good set of specs. Vintage 50s Eyewear is an Etsy shop where you can find unique and one-of-a-kind styles to match your one-of-a-kind-personality at a low cost (they should pay me to come up with shit like this). Here is a small sample of my favourites:

Vintage 50s Slate Blue Horn Rim Cat Eye Eyeglasses Frame Never Worn $78

Vintage 50s 60s Tura Cat Eye Eyeglasses Frame (SOLD)

Vintage 50s Tortoise Cat Eye Eyeglasses Frame With Valentine Heart Accents 64$

Rare Vintage Cat Eye Christian Dior Blue Eyeglasses Frame 139$

I’m normally not one to follow celebrity gossip/fashion, but I can’t help but share my thoughts on last night’s poor dress choice made by Sarah Michelle Gellar at the Golden Globes… or should I say, her two-year old’s poor choice.  Gellar told E!’s Giuliana Rancic that her daughter chose this tie-dyed gown.

This should serve as a valuable lesson to all fashion-conscience women out there: never let your children pick out your outfit for a black tie affair… NEVER!

Prom circa 1995? BARF.

Spool No.72 Clothing Company, Toboggan Fringe Sweater $72. Yetti-chic.

For those of you who have pet ants that are skilled artists.

All Saints, Aztec Dress. $Lame. Not available in Canada., Tularosa Coat in Afternoon $119.99 If you haven`t checked out do it now. Great prices. Unique pieces. I wish the reason I`m sharing this with you was because they send me free shit. They don`t... nor does anyone.

The perfect holiday sweater with, or without a belt. Designer unknown.

Recently I stumbled upon a Jeanne Beker interview with fashion figure Michelle Harper and was inspired (to say the least) by her one-of-a-kind sense of style. I enjoy incorporating fun and unique pieces into my wardrobe, but far too often I find myself holding back and therefore take less risks. It’s women like Michelle Harper that inspire me to create my own style regardless of what trends are present. In the words of this iconic role model, personal style has nothing to do with trends, it has everything to do with dreaming.

Sweet dreams friends.

Perhaps you are sitting inside on this beautiful fall day bored out of your mind. Or maybe you are downtown stolling the streets of our beloved Byward Market. Whatever it is you’re doing, drop it and make your way to Victoire Boutique for their annual Vintage Dress Sale. The ladies of Victoire have toured the states and different parts of Canada searching for some of the treasures that are currently on display in the shop today. I just arrived home with some treats from the sale which is going on until 7 pm this eve. For those of you who are sick of your wardrobe like myself and want something that no one else has, check out You love vintage and vintage loves you. In case you need some more convincing, check out some of the gems I tried on this afternoon below. You’re welcome. – J.

The perfect New Year's get-up? I think so.

Oh hey there Jackie O! It broke my heart to leave without this one, but alas my badonkadonk was not helping the situation.

Came home with these Valérie Dumaine leggings which I have been having dreams about for quite sometime now. WIN.

This dress which came from White Elephant ( makes me wish I was born in an earlier era. Betty Draper, I heart you.

MINE. You will find me sipping lemonade at a picnic in this little number.
