Dior, Dior, Dior

My favorite designer, finally had a chance to check out the 2014 Spring & Summer line  (I am late, Oooops!).  Never a disappointment!  Absolutely a beautiful and stunning collection.  Great modern edge to the pieces and of course my favorite, the florals.  No one can go wrong with a black and white classic ensemble.  Bravo!

Collar Accessory

Have been in a sewing mood lately….  Today I made a pretty fashionable collar using fine Bridal Satins and Laces.  I think it’s pretty anyway, lol.  Available in my Etsy shop.  They called for rain today, which is why I sat myself down at my machine early.  It is looking sunny/cloudy with no sight of rain…yet.  I often wonder if those weathermen/women know what they are talking about?  I havesent a link for some weather entertainment below.   Hmmm what do I make next, my sewing machine is calling!

Plush Warm Headbands or Head Warmers

This week I have been working on my head bands or head warmers for Peonie’s Closet.  Did the photo shoot this morning for the head bands and took photos of my pyjama pants as well with my Model Lyndsay.  So much nicer using a model!  Head bands are great for outdoor activities or anyone who wants to make a fashion statement.  Cool Montreal Canadians head gear or maybe you are a Batman fan!  I try to do a little bit of everything for everyone.

YoU Go DIOR!

Dior is one of my absolute favorite designers.  I just watched the Spring and Summer 2014 collection, oh my!  I love the colors, I love the looks, especially all those flowy pleated skirts, gorgeous!  All the pieces were feminine,  sexy.  There were fashions that were modern, retro, even some that look historical inspired.  What woman doesn’t want to wear Dior?  Hello? Such a variety of fabric collections, I am really impressed with the seasons line.  My favvvvvvvv favvvv is the color, I love all the bright coloring and the color combinations are purrrrfect!   Check out the link, all you Dior fans won’t be disappointed.

Abercrombie A Constant Shopping Horror

3594-Gilly-Hicks-saleANF_LOGOShollister-logoA letter I sent to Gilly Hicks today in my absolute disappointment with their horrible service.  I know mistakes happen but this is a constant thing lately with Abercrombie’s empire, it is just ridiculous.

Gilly Hicks,

I am totally disgusted with your service this year! I placed an order with Gilly Hicks well before Christmas and was told I would receive the parcel on or before December 22nd, 2013 with my SHIPMENT CONFIRMATION. Gilly Hicks received my order December13, 2013 and took their sweet time sending my order out only on December 17, 2013, but it was NEVER shipped to begin with! Upon calling Purolator the woman informed me that a waybill was created and that they have been sitting there waiting for Gilly Hicks to send them the parcel for shipping? Really?? I called Gilly Hicks and you NEVER even sent the order out. Why did I receive a shipment confirmation?? Your operator and Gilly Hicks seemed like it was no big deal? I guess Gilly Hicks has been making so much money (Abercrombie & Fitch / Hollister Co.) this year that my order ($122.66) was just meaningless. The operator offered to resend my parcel but of course half of my items were no longer available. Not to mention two girls have been disappointed.

Last year it was just confusion as well with the wrong items sent etc…

This is my tip telling me that I should no longer order from Abercrombie/Hollister or Gilly Hicks which had become a family tradition…Too Bad

Wedding Bliss

So the day has finally come and gone, my nieces wedding day.  Wanted to share what I wore and where I purchased my dress (which I thought was stunning) and some hall pictures.  The wedding venue was at “Chateau Vaudreuil” in Vaudreuil, Quebec.  The weather was really quite horrible, and the ceremony being outside did not help.  But it was still great and thank goodness it did not rain even though all the women’s wonderful Doo’s for the day were blown to bits!  LOL!

Beautiful dress by YBridal, was really happy with all the details, very comfortable. Taffetta fabric with beautiful rosettes in front and back and lovely sequin and stone details. 😀

Wedding Purse Pink Perfection

I looked everywhere….  store after store for the perfect PINK purse.  I couldn’t find one, and as the time passed by (the wedding is tomorrow)  I became delirious that I would not have a purse to hold my goodies (you know how a woman is?  make-up..brush..hairspray..hand lotion..kleenex..hand sanitizer..gum..the kitchen sink and oh yeah MONEY in that tiny purse!)   To make things short, I decided that if I could not find one, I would make one.  This is what I have been working on this week along with all my OTHER stuff.  I wanted something very simple, elegant, a satin and a clutch style and of course PINK!  This is what I came up with.  

My pretty Pink Purse.  When I saw the fabric, I knew this would be it.  You can remove the flower accessory or keep it on.  It’s hard to take the picture,

the pink is much prettier in person, and when I saw the flower it was “Calling” out to me “… ” I would look grand on your pink purse?!”  Oh my yes you do!
