Hello my lovelies, how is everyone doing?
First of all, let me apologise for posting late this week. Oh my gosh! What a week it was for me. Everything was going quiet well for starters; I was taking my photo shoots as I usually do during the week, hoping to post on Saturday. That was when disaster struck with its usual precision, direct on point! As we were editing the photos, we accidentally deleted and lost most of them irretrievably! I went straight into distress mode but I quickly pulled myself together and said ~too blessed to be stressed~

Listen guys, to get one complete set of photos, you have to choose your location, the outfit, accessories, the makeup and of course the right attitude -  hahaha. I did that for three separate shoots and those were all the photos I lost. But as I said, it was taken all within my stride, and I moved on! My advice in this sort of situation is to take a few deep breaths, relax, smile and remind yourself of your numerous blessings  and just pick a new date, place and time for your make up photo shoot! Embrace your every circumstance with a positive attitude; because you know what, it’s not that serious! By the way, if you are around Toronto let me hear your shout out to the beautiful sunny day we have today.


I am going on a trip this evening but I still have to organize my home and make sure my boys are well taken care of in my absence, pack, redo the photo shoot, write this blog, edit and post. That is the life of a diva!


Ok moving over to this Amish Style Dress,
I have had this outfit for quite a while back - almost 18 years ago- when Victoria’s Secrets sold clothes. I am not certain they still do. But anyways, I decided to launch it because of its delicate and warm FALL colors. Hahaha, I told you to save your good clothes, I am available for consultation if you’re not sure how to style it. Just drop a line to Kartia and I will give you some fashion tips! Be careful here though because you can only try this with classic cut clothes that do not necessarily date.
I wore it with the newest trends fringe long sweater jacket, ankle lace up shoes, latest flavour Gucci scarf,  Gucci purse and these equally trendy mirror sun-glasses

.When you go down memory lane to resurrect an old outfit, always accessorize with the latest trends in fashion with shoes, jewelry, purse, scarf etc. This immediately teleports ‘the look’ into the present day fashion

Have a Fabulous Thanksgiving my Fellow Canadians, and thank you all for reading

  1. I'm not sure whether Victoria's Secret sells clothes anymore, but so great you kept that dress for all these years...It's colour and texture is so perfect for Fall. I like the way you styled it with heels....very glam and pretty!
