Road Trip!

Hi All,

Talk about fun! Momma MacNeil (Celina) and I have been traveling like maniacs trying to find sweet deals and the vintage items you crave. And guess what? We did!

Not only did we only eat donuts and dunkable chicken products and sing to old 80's tunes, we combed the coast for the best of vintage and contemporary wears for you fabulous St. John's urbanites.

Great Success everyone! Pop in next week to catch some great items and they will continue to come out as the weeks move on.

You should see the dresses girls!

Blazers Baby!

Friends- Every Spring Brings Fashion Predicaments...

We are in a North Climate and in order to avoid those brutal spring colds and wear those great spring dresses before August, we need to find interesting ways to accessorize. Every season brings new trends and the one we are drooling over is the blazer. Embracing all blazers, leather, boyfriend, cropped tuxedo blazers. 

Picture this

Think short rock and roll dress, so mini that you can't sit. Grab that Blazer, push up those sleeves and you are night glam goddess. Play with blazers ith satin, pinched waists, cropped tuxedo etc.

Play with men's oversized blazers and skinny jeans as well. What an awesome effortless 
look- and as always, getting that rock and roll night Glam look for less- shop Vintage girls!

Model Behavior

行進, Mars, Marcha, Marsch...

The green month. 

Everyone is anxious to get outside after a cold winter, wanting to stretch their legs and smell the sweet & salty air. 

Everyone knows that moment that you step out of your house, office or school and suddenly the strip tease begins- off go the layers of wool and (even though it is still too cold) there is the dude that insists it is time for his cargo shorts. I try and remember that day, that feeling all year long. Document it in anyway you know how- take a photo, buy a new spring dress (and call it your pre-spring purchase), stay outside all day long, write about the feeling of buttercream sunshine in a journal- whatever you need to do to savour that moment.

Start the Striptease Today and look forward to summer sweetness around the corner.
