I live for colour in my clothes. Our closets are filled with a kaleidoscope of colours and hues of colours. It is just beautiful to me. But one colour that is not in my wardrobe is…RED! Astonishing I know. Red is a power colour that personifies fierceness and confidence, yet I have never been able to wear it until now.
Strolling through Hudson's Bay ( one of my fave spots, cause going anywhere else first is unCanadian and uncivilized--LOL), I saw some gorgeous dresses on sale from the F/W season. This Jessica Simpson number instantly caught my attention. I am drawn to anything with a cape--paging Wonderwoman--so I didn't even hesitate with this purchase. Plus an extra 40% on top of the sale price gave me all kinds of life!
This dress is elegant and simple, yet doesn't need much for WOW factor. I chose a classic pair of nude Aldo stilettos from my closet and decided against a necklace. This dress is just too fabulous on it's own that I didn't want to overdo it.
Shii's look was done mostly from items in his closet. I like to get clothes for him on sale and put them down for future outfits.I decided to go for a sophisticated lumberjack vibe with this look, and try to capture a country vibe to contrast my polished city look.
I got his shirt from H&M, a couple seasons back. The plaid lumberjack shirt can transfer through many seasons so kids definitely get a lot of wear out of it. I decided to go with jeans instead of dress pants to keep with the theme, but chose a darker indigo blue wash. Shii's blazer is also from H&M. I am obsessed with the patchwork elbows. Blazers make him look like a little gentleman, which is great if I can get him to keep it on for longer than an hour.
His GAP Factory sneakers are mixed denim and sooo cute. They definitely brought a bit of playfulness to the outfit.
I had a great time dressing up with my #1, but the best part of it all is the crazy fun we have!
