Lace on Lace

January 4, 2013
lace-on-lace-to-vogue-or-bust-6

Top c/o Club Monaco, Sam Edelman wedges, Club Monaco coat, tights & skirt,
bag c/o Mary Nichols, earrings c/o Brooklyn Designs

And so my love affair with purple continues…and it’s getting kind of weird. I don’t know, I guess something about the tone makes me feel warm despite how chilly and grey it’s been, that and the fact that I have an obsessive nature. Either way, it’s ruled my wardrobe so far during these colder months.
This amethyst-hued top from Club Monaco has become a fast favourite of mine – the colour is beyond pretty and until I got it, I didn’t realize how desperately I needed pretty but wearable tops. I have so many dressy tops or the kind that really should only be used for layering (i.e. they’re not all that pretty).
Leaving my cabin today…SIIIIGH. I always wish I could stay up here for a full week. Having said that, I’ll be seeing one of my favourite girls tonight who’s usually all the way in Oz, so definitely coming home for a good reason. Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

    That skirt is so pretty! I love lace lately and purple is my favorite color but I never seem to find a lot of pieces in a good purple color for me.

    Purple really suits you, Alex! And I need to get my hands on a similar pair of jewelled tone tights… they look so rich and luxe!

    The colours and textures in this outfit are beautiful! Of course, I'm biased because purple is my favourite colour but it really is a great look. Have a great weekend!

    I just LOVE this skirt! I am always so wary of wearing lace as I don't want to look too doily-like, but this is such a pretty combination!
