outfit 3 ways | 50 days of grey

Alright…I have not seen the movie nor read the books, so my play on words is more about the weather in Vancouver, trying to come to terms with said weather and the fact that one of my favourite colours to wear is grey.

grey. for. daaaaaays.

I’ve noticed something of myself lately, that once something new enters my closet if I really love it, I wear it on repeat. Like, excessively.

I have to remind myself that there are MANY items in my closet to wear and I love them all, but I just seem to obsess over it. It being whatever that one pieces is.

In this case, it’s a 5 items so I figured why not show you what they are and how I’ve been working them together.

zuri body con dress – c/o SWAK | Mossimo sweater poncho – Target | chevron necklace – c/o Society+ { on sale!!


Piece number 1, this Zuri body con dress { it’s on sale! } from SWAK. It’s a perfect basic comfy dress. It can be worn by itself or layered up, but with the cooling temperatures, it’s all about layering for me right meow.

I sized up on this dress. It’s pretty sexy, but I wanted a more drapey, effortless feel. I did knot the straps to bring the dress up a bit as they were too long. But it’s sooo comfy and I still think it’s sexy, even as I sit here writing this currently wearing this dress with messy bed head and no bra on! :O hehe!

Piece number 2, this zig zag sweater/poncho/cape/wrap thingy from Target { I just realised this isn’t plus, holy crap, it’s an l-xl and it’s so surprisingly roomy for a straight size piece! I never shop straight size, like, I never bother to look, this just happened to be hanging near the plus section in the store, so I hadn’t noticed it at all. }

I have never shopped the plus in Target before as Canada only had Target for a short time and that time just happened to be when the plus line was MIA. I’ve seen the new plus collections online though. I hadn’t really liked much of what I saw but I still wanted to check it out when I was in California.

To be honest, it was kinda as depressing and dismal as I remember shopping for plus in large box department stores. So nothing much changed there, just some printed out pieces of 8.5 x 11 saying there was more available online. But I was well informed by my friends  Natalie and Katana that there was a pink muppet, I mean faux fur vest { c’mon, you don’t think muppet when you see these too?? I’m not hating, I’m loving the muppet couture! } that had my name allllll over it. I HAD to see if I could nab one.

Sadly they had just one in stock; it was a 2x and was hard to get on. So I regretfully passed, but I did come across this wrap and I have been wearing it non stop. Bonus points, it has pockets! I do wish the sides were kept together with a little more than a simple single stitch, as one side has already come undone and I need to repair it.

moto vest – Domino dollhouse | platform boots – urbanog.com | donut earrings, Lydia brooch & Tape measure brooch – c/o jubly-umph

Piece number 3, my grid moto vest from Domino Dollhouse. You may have seen my Jack Skellington costume for Halloween, I tried my darnedest to try and incorporate this in, I love it so much!

Domino Dollhouse is closing, but there are still just a few pieces left to nab up before she officially closes shop.

I also have on a plain grey cardi on these first two looks for some warmth. It’s from forever21+

fringe infinity scarf – c/o SWAK designs | distressed sweater – c/o Buxom

Piece number 4, this freaking RAD distressed sweater from Buxom { I’ve featured it before }. Jenny sent me this a while back and I have been wearing it since. I love it so hard. It has this post apocalyptic chicness that it just dreamy. I love wearing it under my faux leather jacket for a ultra cool chick vibe.

Her site is sparse right now as she’s currently moving locations, but make sure to follow on instagram to keep up to date when she’s open again. { UPDATED – she has just launched her winter collection and there are some great pieces in it as well as this sweater restocked in black and oatmeal! }

Piece number 5, this fringed infinity scarf,also from SWAK designs.

I. Love. It!

I love adding it to outfits to bulk it up or add a hood element that makes you looks cool, mysterious and cozy all at once!


Oh and my make up…

    That dress is super-cute and looks amazing on you! I’ve also been on a bit of a grey kick lately. A few years ago it was chocolate brown… who knows what my next colour obsession will be.
