Torrid April 2012

I've been thinking of ways to create posts about fashion that I like but find it frustrating to post one picture at a time, add a link, resize the photo etc etc... Then it struck me - "wait, isn't this the whole point of Polyvore?" & Ta-dah! Here we are!

These are my current favourite picks from www.torrid.com
I've never actually shopped with them before as I was living in the U.K. & was terrified by the thought of customs charges!
Now I'm firmly based in Toronto I'm hoping to finally get my paws on a few of these gorgeous pieces! I'm hoping the customs charges won't be as bad over here :)

I've gone for a Spring/Summer theme - floaty Maxi dresses with Kimono sleeve bed jackets, leopard print, cute Pumps & a good dose of edgy accessories.
I love the combination of something super girly paired with tougher accessories with harder lines. 

Hope you enjoy :)

When the doubts creep in - clean out.

Wow, I just wrote an extremely honest & brutal blog post about self-doubt... And just deleted the whole thing.
I'm not sure this is the right place to put it.

I've been tearing myself down this week about every aspect of my life & It's time to stop being my own worst enemy.
If I'm constantly telling myself I'm pointless, worthless, ugly, stupid & un-worthy of people's time, then it's no wonder that I'm feeling so darn horrendous.
If we don't stick up for ourselves & have our own backs, then who will?

I've got a long way to go but I do realise that I need to start giving myself respect if I want to start making things more postive in my life.

Basecoat advice please :)

Since moving to Toronto I've discovered I can't easily buy my favourite basecoat - Leighton Denny 'undercover' so I am on the hunt for a new one.

What is your favourite basecoat?
I'm looking at Orly bonder but would love to hear some personal recommendations :)
