Friday I’m in Love is a weekly feature where I curate my top 3 looks I have seen online each week. 

Suit up ladies!!  Nothing makes me swoon more than a lady rocking a suit!! Here are this weeks pick!!

This girl looks divine, she’s a total femme fatale!!  I’m completely enamored with her blue, Hollywood/mermaid locks and how amazingly tailored this suit is on her!!

I love, love, looove how she accessorized with a bright red lippie and a bad ass , spiked ear cuff!

*swoon*

This week marked a huge collaborative event in the French Curves group {man I wish I could speak french fluently, I am very much a novice} in which they were instructed to recreate a look.

Assa chose to replicate a look by Miroslava Duma, who is a former editor of Harper’s Bazaar Russia.  These two pieces aren’t actually a matching suit, but I’m so impressed with how close they look!  Click here to see the original, I think she did a perfect tribute!

3// Rosa from Rosariummmm // Clueless Chick

Rosa’s timing could not have been better, as I was searching for a third bad ass girl who has suited up,  there she was, at the top of my instagram feed in a super cute skirt suit!

Perfectly reminiscent of “Clueless”,  she’s rocking this suit in style and I adore it!  Can you believe she re-purposed this from an old suit from the 80′s her mom gave her?!! Brilliant!

Friday I’m in Love is a weekly feature where I curate my top 3 looks I have seen online each week. 

I sadly missed last weeks friday i’m in love due to feeling under the weather, but I’m back this week with some edgy babes!

Hello chiffon!! Easily my favourite fabric of the summer, especially when used with a maxi!! I adore this monochrome ombre chiffon maxi.

She looks so perfectly edgy with her flaming red hair, bowler hat & nose piercing! I swoon!

Those white frames are pretty kickin’ as well!

I have just found Nadia on instagram and I am smitten beyond belief with her cute stylishness!

I adore her all black outfit with a helleva statement necklace in silver.  The added leopard slippers are just the right bad ass touch along with a black leather jacket, which I’m pretty sure might be the definition of “edgy”, go look it up, I’ll wait ;)

This gal is SUCH a cutie patootie!!  Her blog is in Finnish, so when it translates I’m always a bit baffled, but she seems like a ton of fun!

This look is adorable edgy!  The stripy 3/4 length tee is awesome, paired with this full midi skirt and bright yellow tights!  I love her hair and BIG round shades!

Side note, her pose in this shot somewhat reminds me of the tightrope portrait in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion!

Friday I’m in Love is a weekly feature where I curate my top 3 looks I have seen online each week.  Though I will feature many plus size looks, I will also feature looks including straight sizes and gentlemen if the feeling strikes!

Sian from forever Fabulous in Bows // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Sian from forever Fabulous in Bows // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

Look at how gorgeous this sheer maxi is!! Just LOOK!!

It’s not a surprise that I am a HUGE fan of black chiffon and I absolutely LOVE maxi’s as well!  What a perfect summer look!

I adore the long line cardi too, and who doesn’t love a classic, over sized, designer bag to make the perfect “yes, I’m effortlessly chic” statement?

Just gorgeous!

Dionne from Superzie my Fashion // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Dionne from Superzie my Fashion // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

Oh my goodness, how fabulous does Dionne look in this absolutely gorgeous dress from the ASOS Salon line???  I have been wanting to write a piece on being a modern flapper girl with the Salon dresses as the key items!

She just looks beyond glamorous!  She got the look spot on and I’m super jealous that I don’t have this entire ensemble in my closet right meow!!

The jewelry she chose is perfect and the shoes are a lovely contrast to the dark dress, but still have just as much glitz and that purse is so much fun!

3// Ashley from This is Ashley Rose // My Style: Aussie Curves: Polka Dots


Ashley from this is Ashley Rose // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Ashley from this is Ashley Rose // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

Just look how pretty & posh Ashley is looking in these photos.  I adore the sheer polka dot blouse, the breezy, pleated midi skirt and the perfect pops of red in her shoes, handbag, skinny belt & lippie!

She looks like a perfect lady, completely pulled together and totally on trend with the sheer elements!

Audrey from Big or not to big // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.comAudrey from Big or not to big // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

Audrey is a lovely French blogger.  Though I can’t understand the text on her blog, I still love looking at her pictures!  She has a tremendous sense of style that I just adore!  She’s usually very feminine in great dresses and perfect accessories, but there’s something about this catsuit that is just so très chic!  The fabric looks soft, comfortable and luxurious and the lace detail on the cap sleeve and décolletage is so lovely!

I absolutely LOVE the obi wrap leather belt and the pops of coral in the necklace and shoes are just perfect.

Amanda from In The Thick Of It  // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com Amanda from In The Thick Of It  // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

I know it seems like it just wouldn’t be a friday i’m in love without a style blogger with short white blonde hair, but I swear, I’m not doing it on purpose!!

I just love how casual rock n roll this look is.  It’s super simple with the rock tee, perfectly fitting black skinnies, demin jacket and metallic pumps. The look just pulls together so well!  (it also helps it’s a Siouxsie shirt, I love  me some Siouxsie Sioux!)

3// Lauren from Goodbye Hollywood // Drama! And looking forward

Lauren from Goodbye Hollywood // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com Lauren from Goodbye Hollywood // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

I am a super fan of button-up dresses, especially button-up dresses with some sort of embellishment on the collar! I quite like the pattern of the dress and definitely love the contrasting yolk.  The nude heels are great and really make her legs look miles long!

You can follow Lauren on her blog, instagram or tumblr!

BONUS// Isabell from Dressing Outside the Box //LBD – Or The Va Va Voom Dress

Isabell from Dressing Outside the Box // friday i'm in love #25 // margotmeanie.com

I know I’ve recently featured Isabell, but hotdamn, look at this babe-erliness!! She is easily one of  my favourite style bloggers!  This bonus feature is also compounded with the fact that I was just eyeing this dress up on Forever 21 myself the day before she posted this!

This is the epitome of the little black dress, it fits just right, is super sexy and will work for many occasions!

Emmi from Roosas Closet // friday i'm in love #24 // margotmeanie.com Emmi from Roosa's Closet // friday i'm in love #24 // margotmeanie.com

Emmi is just completely gorgeous and this look is sooo posh, it’s killing me!  I love all the black, but that necklace is a game changer!  I love statement jewelry, especially all the new and fantastic pieces available for necklaces right now.  I find myself green with envy as I’m lacking in the statement necklace department.  This is so perfect!

I know I tend to over use the word “chic”  but it completely applies to Emmi and this look!

You can follow Emmi on her blog or instagram!

 

2// Mila from lookbook // whowears cheetah anyways?

Mila from lookbook // friday i'm in love #24 // margotmeanie.com

I usually opt for cheetah or leopard as an accent, but something about the fact that this dress is sheer mixed with the colour makes it  just work so well, especially with her skin tone and perfect black bob!  I love that she paired it with a denim jacket and some wicked big, round shades.

This look is just aces for me!

3// Gazel from gazelma.com // instagram

Gazel Ma // friday i'm in love #24 // margotmeanie.com

I just found Gazel on instagram recently and I absolutely loved this outfit!  I’m a total fan of sack dresses or anything that is generally shapeless.  I love how they drape and look edgy yet elegant.  This was paired simply with a really great structured satchel bag, in contrast to the dress, as well as a lovely necklace, which is simple, but still a statement in itself!

Over all, I think her look is effortless with it’s well thought out simplicity!

Happy Friday!!!

This week flew by on account of getting back from Alberta.  I wasn’t on here much this week, but I was definitely all over the mobile sites reading bloglovin’, lookbook, tumblr &  instagram!

It was hard to narrow it down to my top three looks of the week, but I’m pretty stoked on them all!

1// Alea from The Haute Girl // Court Date

Alea from The Haute Girl // Court Date // friday i'm in love // margot meanie

I just found Alea this week through lookbook and I am completely enamored with her poise.  It was hard to pick a favourite outfit of hers as she always looks elegant & classy dressed up or down.  In the end I went with this, as it was my very first impression of her!

You can follow her on lookbook, instagram or directly through her blog.

 

2// Bethany from Arched Eyebrow // top of the crops

Bethany from Arched Eyebrow // top of the crops // friday i'm in love // margot meanie Bethany from Arched Eyebrow // top of the crops // friday i'm in love // margot meanie

I’ve been following Bethany on Arched Eyebrow for some time now.  She is just fabulous fun & really knows how to rock pink, sneakers and pattern like no ones business!  This week, I chose this look by her because I loved how this casual look still packed such a punch!  She looks casual, edgy and trendy all in one.

You can follow her on instagram, twitter or through her blog!

 

3// Slade Vegas from Loquacious Glamour // Sladetheoneanyonly

20140606-131502-47702904.jpg

Slade Vegas is a fun alternative babe I follow on tumblr & instagram!  I love her hair and her attitude & just generally love how happy she looks in these photos!  She just radiates body positivity & looks so lovely in this sheer yolk skater dress and that kimono matched her hair perfectly!

Welcome to my revamped Friday I’m in Love!

I haven’t been feeling this feature now for a while and I let it fall to the wayside after a close friend gave me a blog critique and said they thought that the feature just felt like an extension of my pinterest, I couldn’t help but completely agree.  I really felt like I was phoning it in most weeks and that’s not how I ever want this blog to make me feel.

Generally I’m excited about writing new posts and I wanted to keep that going so I let Friday I’m in Love slip away.  But in the last week or so a new idea settled in and I began to get excited!!

Friday I’m in Love is now going to be centered on giving back to the community and featuring what I truly love, great style!

Friday’s will now be dedicated to my top 3 looks I saw each week!  They may not always be posted from that week, they just have to be my favourites that I’ve seen!! Of course I always want to highlight the plus size babes out there, but this will be completely inclusive so men and woman of all shapes & sizes are ripe for the picking!!

I’m keeping it to 3 looks for now, I think it’s a manageable amount and still gives a spotlight on each person!

I hope you enjoy!

Without further ado, here are my top picks for this week:

1// Isabell Decker from Dressing Outside the Box // Boyish

This is not one of the “new this week” posts at all, but it came across my tumblr dash earlier this week, it’s actually the second time I’ve seen it and I loved it just as much a second go around, so it’s perfect for this feature!

Since this is an older post, I had a hard time tracking down the outfit details on her site, but take a peak over there, lots of cute looks!

 

Hope you enjoy what these lovely ladies are putting out there!  I look forward to bringing you more great looks from around the web!

Friday I’m In Love #21 // Vivian Maier

I finally was able to attend a screening of Finding Vivian Maier at my favourite local theatre, The Rio.

I’m really happy to finally have seen this.  I’ve been in love with her photos since I first saw them a few years ago.  When I found out about the documentary, I was really excited and hopeful it would eventually come here.

As I said, I really love her photos.  I’m in love with the framing and contrast.  I love the glamorous vs the grimy and I love her interest in mundane details, which seem to be the same things I feel I’m drawn to photograph when I’m walking about.

Her photos seem to capture the moment so perfectly and tell a story in each frame.

The movie was beautiful, both inspiring at times and terribly sad at others.  I loved the passion the director took in trying to figure out this puzzle, as she was indeed a puzzle.  A self described “Mystery Lady”.  Ultimately, it was a heartbreaking story, but one I am still happy to have watched.

Here are a few of my favourite photos that I’m familiar with, I hope to see more and more of her work as it gets processed and published.

Chicago, ILVivian Maier, January 1956Vivian Maier, 1953, New York, NYVivian Maier, January 9, 1957, FloridaVivian Maier, Self Portrait, Undated

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.   I’m sure she would hate all the attention she is now getting, but I’m happy her photos are getting the notoriety they deserve.  They have certainly served as inspiration!

I’m now hunting for a Rolleiflex to use.  I miss walking around snapping shots.

Friday I’m in Love #20

My mind has been completely stuck in nerd/fan girl mode all week.   So, this weeks Friday I’m in Love is following that trend.

My Walking Dead group finally got together to watch the last three episodes of this season, which were freakin’ grrreat!  Now it’s onto Tabletop day all day Saturday and Captain America followed by Game of Thrones on Sunday!!!!! (speaking of Game of Thrones, wanna see something awesome? No spoilers, I promise, just awesomeness)

Saturday I will be fabric shopping as well.  I’m hoping to get my booty in gear and have something to cosplay for FanExpo in two weeks.

This is pretty inspiring, but not what I’ll be attempting! Haha!

The video below pretty much became our theme song for Seattle.

//Since attending ECC I have been struck with some pretty hardcore inspiration!! I am working on a secret project that I’m reeeeally stoked on!!
