photoshoots & new features

TGIF everyone! I'm glad the crassness of my last blog post didn't offend anymore- as you can tell by today's title, my creativity has dried up for the week!

I'm excited to share with you the results of the springtime photoshoot I styled a few weeks ago for Ef Magazine.  Here are my favourite shots, the models are all wearing thrifted or vintage clothing, paired with pieces from thier own closets (to see all the photos see here and here). 

Drinks at Ei8teen

Shopping for flowers in the Byward Market

Cobblestreets in downtown Ottawa

Who says you can't be stylish when it rains?

Lunch at trendy restaurant Play

A great example of how to colour block

The photoshoot team (I'm in the floral dress)

I've been making a few changes to my blog in hopes of making it easier to navigate.  On the right side there are 4 pictures of me wearing a top made of tinfoil (for readers who have been following my blog since the beginning, you may remember that these used to be my blog header).  If you click on these photos they will direct you to a different feature.

Contact me- here you will my profile information and e-mail address (send me a line, I'd love to hear from you!)

Outfits- this section was more for me so I can quickly refer back to previous outfits but if you're interested in seeing my monthly round-up, this is the place to be. I have my outfits from Jan-present.

Featured on- here I have links to photoshoots I've styled, blog posts I've written and interviews I've done

Twitter- this of course brings you to my twitter page for all you tweeting fashionistas out there!

I'm hoping to change my blog header around although I'm technically challenged so this could take a while!  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll be back tomorrow with an OOTD.


  1. Wow, you did such a good job! Congrats!

  2. Nice work! Everyone--including you, of course--looks wonderful. I especially like the colorblocking example...probably because I don't really ever colorblock, haha.

    I like the idea of your current header a lot! I hope you don't change it too much! :)

    Happy weekend!

  3. great photos and congrats.

  4. Sharp and colorful photos. Nice work.

  5. I love the styling Em! Especially the colour blocking!

    I used to be so afraid of shopping vintage or thrifting, but this shoot has inspired me to try a bit harder. Thanks : )

  6. Wow, everyone is styled so well - it's certianly hard to choose a favorite!

    Chic on the Cheap

  10. I just saw these on the Ef website and was thinking what a stupendous job you'd done! My three favourite looks are the peach shorts, the mixed floral prints and the colourblocked outfit. BRAVO! PS If you can't tell I'm going through posts on my dashboard in reverse order ;) - Kat

  11. I really like the fact that these outfits are actually ones you could envision wearing! Well done, we are very proud of you! xoxo

  12. i really need to organize my blog. like how you did this. and those pics are great. how exciting about the job. my fave is that color blocking one i think!


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
