I Heard it Through the Grapevine

October 9, 2012

Nine Bird dress c/o Fossello’s, Sam Edelman wedges, Rebecca Minkoff bag,
beads c/o Mala Imports, Bfrend bracelet,bracelet c/o Poshlocket
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I cruised by beautiful Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast last Friday and made a stop at the recently opened Fossello’s, a stunning boutique right in the heart of the quaint seaside town. What a lot of people might not know about the Sunshine Coast is that there is a huge community of artistic- or creatively-inclined individuals that live in that little slice of paradise, and it’s so great to see people like Eva, Fossello’s owner, bringing some stunning fashion to the community now too. From Ellery to J.Brand, there were sooo many covetable brands…I really wish I hadn’t been in such a rush to catch my next ferry otherwise I could have spent way more time perusing the racks! Definitely a must-visit if you’re headed to the Sunshine Coast!
Anyway, it was so incredibly hot (there was not the slightest gust of wind and the sun was literally beating down on us) that I had to ditch my favourite Twenty8Twelve leather jacket that I had originally styled with this look, but considering the stunning back of this Nine Bird dress, it worked out anyway. Love that slice of fuchsia. I’ve also always loved the combo of shades of purple and green together, so both my Rebecca Minkoff bag and tuquoise-studded Mala Imports rudraksha beads were natural choices.
Happy Tuesday everyone!

    Let's start with your hair. That is a fishtail braid and I need details. Did you do it yourself? If so, how??? I need answers 🙂 Moving on to the outfit, what can I say except that it is absolutely stunning – seriously cannot believe that you're wearing a sleeveless dress in October, but what a beautiful feeling it must have been. And that colour. So perfect.

    I'm so happy you ditched the jacket you were going to wear because the back of your dress is too gorgeous not to show off! Love the way you incorporated your beloved turquoise into the look too, it contrasts beautifully with the purple.
