The Beginning of 2017’s Swimwear Summer

Last year may have been my first Summer of Swimwear but this year I am back and even more confident than before. So I’m excited to be out by the pool for the full 2.5 months it is open during the summer. My first journey out to the pool was in this gorgeous floral print high neck bikini from LoraletteContinue reading “The Beginning of 2017’s Swimwear Summer”

Laid Back Femme By Loralette

I’m pretty sure the title of this post sums up my style on most days. I’m always feminine, or as we say in the queer community, femme, but I am also usually pretty casual. I am not what we in the queer community refer to as high femme. I like skirts and dresses but I prefer cute separates for most occasions.  Continue reading “Laid Back Femme By Loralette”

The Bell Sleeve Trend Is Back

Yet another 90s trend is back for those of us old enough to actually remember it the first time around. I don’t recall owning anything in this style in the 90s (or many other trends given I wasn’t even a teen yet) but I am loving this ivory lace bell sleeve dress from Loralette. It lets me be the femme woman I truly am inside. Continue reading “The Bell Sleeve Trend Is Back”

Dressing Down Cocktail Dresses

Here’s the thing, I like to dress up. I prefer wearing skirts and dresses but it often doesn’t suit the weather or the occasion dress code. So I have started exploring ways to dress down cocktail dresses and evening wear, without coming across way too extra.  Continue reading “Dressing Down Cocktail Dresses”

When The Dress Is Perfect, Except…

I love this dress so much! Except, for one thing… it shows off way too much cleavage. I love the length of the dress, the v-neck, the bodycon design, the all black with lace details, the arm length, everything! But then I realized the center is sheer and it is 100% not appropriate to wear to work, which is where I hoped to wear it most often. Continue reading “When The Dress Is Perfect, Except…”

Party Skirt from Giti Online

I’ve always been a huge fan of empire waists and full skirts. It gives off that princess vibe that so many of us are searching for. One of the first fatshion items I purchased was a black tutu. I was hoping this skirt would mimic that look without making it too fancy for work. Continue reading “Party Skirt from Giti Online”

Embroidery Is Everywhere!

What is the number one trend of the season? The answer is easy. Embroidery. It is everywhere. You can find it on everything from tops & jackets to shoes & purses. I have yet to think of a clothing item I haven’t seen embroidered yet. In fact, I am working on a blog post about my favourite lingerie for spring that also features embroidery. So if you are looking for a trend piece, start here. Continue reading “Embroidery Is Everywhere!”

Loving Loralette’s Lace Bomber

I’m a big fan of feminine details and sportswear that still lets me feel beautiful and femme. So I love this cute white bomber jacket with lace inserts from Loralette. It has a sheer front with covered but still light enough for summer nights texture.  Continue reading “Loving Loralette’s Lace Bomber”

Classic Black High Waist Pant

Personally, I love a high waist pant. I think they are more comfortable to wear and I think they emphasize the curve of a woman’s body. However, for exactly that reason, I have not always loved them. The more I embrace my body, the more I embrace wearing clothes that I used to avoid.  Continue reading “Classic Black High Waist Pant”
