gold lion’s gonna tell me where the light is

margot meanie

this is just a quick ‘hello!’ of an outfit post.  I’ve been a busy bee with the holidays arriving what with crafting, baking, decorating, making gift guides and birthdays I have been absent from taking outfit photos.

So this is from Sunday when I went down to a craft fare with Mister Meanie and one of my favourite couples to hang with, Amanda & Amelia.  After the market, we stopped in a beer tasting room for some samples and then split off to do some x-mas shopping.

This spot seemed ideal for a quick photo session so I asked the mister to take some photos before the light was gone.

Trying to get photos with the waning light has been a struggle.  It’s on the weekend or not at all and if the weather is wet, it ends up being not at all.

I can’t really link to anything I’m wearing as it’s either older, vintage,  thrifted or from Ross in Las Vegas.  But the skirt and hat are both from Forever21, but the skirt is a few years old meow and the hat is well over a year old at this point.  the jacket is by New Look from ASOS last year there are similar ones in stock though {here & here}

I’m really hoping for some snow, but it’s incredibly unlikely in this part of Canada.  We only get a few weeks at best, but if we do get it, you better believe I’ll be out there in a heartbeat trying to get multiple outfit sets.

It seems the rainy season is taking it’s grasp here in Vancouver.  I’ve lost my light, which sounds so dramatic, but really it’s just that I’ve had no luck taking indoor photos as I really rely on the afternoon light that fills half my home.

Luckily it was a clear, sunny and gorgeous day to take a ferry across to visit some friends on Vancouver Island.  With the sun out and a beautiful nautical backdrop I wrangled my husband into taking photos of me {which really isn’t much of a wrangle, he’s pretty keen on helping me out for photos}.

So this is what I wore for my ferry ride!  I’ve been meaning to get a photo of this dress from ASOS for over 2 weeks now.  Damn you grey skies!  Don’t get me wrong, I love the rain, I’m just annoyed that it’s getting in the way of me being able to grab my own shots at home which can prove to be even more problematic during the very dreary Vancouver winter I’m looking ahead to.  But it worked out for the best as this is a lovely location and is a refreshing change to have some outdoor photos!

Back to this dress, ASOS CURVE Cami Dress With Lace Trim  it’s still available online and it’s on a crazy clearance deal, only $34 cdn!!  I ordered this in a UK 24, I was about to get a 22 but last minute changed my mind and I’m happy I did.

I adore how this fits.  

You know how sometimes you put an item on and you just feel right?? That happened immediately in this! I felt so sexy and stylish.  It’s just enough of a flapper feel for me, but remaining completely in the modern era.

I will get a TON of wear out of this dress!

I paired this with my New Look Inspire waterfall faux leather jacket that I got last year, {similar} to keep it edgy and to keep any fall chill at bay!

In other news, tomorrow is my 1 year blogaversary!!  I’ll have a little write up of my feelings on the last year I’ve spent blogging!

I am unabashedly, a HUG Harry Potter nerd!!

In fact, such a Potterphile, that my very first blog post on here about 10 months go was a about a Harry Potter party that I hosted and went full tilt on! {please excuse how long winded it is, it was my first time back to blogging for seven or so years!! oh and I first named this blog Miss Meanie goes to Paris, which was equally long winded, so I changed that pretty quick!}

I have a huge collection of cool HP bric-à-brac, most of which I brought back last year after visiting the most magical place on earth, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! We have most of it out on display, but we really want to get  a better shelf to display all our curious & magical items.  The wands are still in their boxes and we’d really like to get a stand to display them more nicely.

It had occurred to me, that although I had mentioned purchasing this top back in March when I was down at ECCC, I had never actually taken any outfit shots with it!

It’s actually one of the staples in my wardrobe right now, on account of it being A) a crop top B) the most lightweight soft material ever C)being black & D) it’s wonderfully nerdy! I actually altered this a bit.  I took the straps up, as I hate big gaping armholes that show off my bra, which also made it a shorter crop top, which worked well for me!

//what i wore//

I wouldn’t normally wear the kitty ears out with this outfit, but I was in a fun mood.  It also occurred to me, that I never smile in any of my photos, so that has been remedied in this post!

//deathly hallows crop – android sheep, they only have one size, but it fits pretty well, if just a tad snug which makes the lines look rippled

//pleated skater skirt & geometric cuff – forever21+

//skinny belt w/gold cross & suspender tights – ASOS curve, sadly these did not live as long as I had hoped.  The thinner nylon on the top is just full of runs {or ladders a they call them in the UK}

//shoes – thrifted

//moon pendant necklace – a gift from my mom & step dad.  The image is of the phase the moon was in when I was born!

 

Well, that is my witchpoo look!  You know, with it being Wednesday and the whole, on “Wednesday’s we wear black” that seems to be a new mantra of mine!

Are you a crazy potterphile too?  Or are you part of any other fandom??  I’m kind of a fangirl for a lot of fandoms! Let me know what you’re into!!

// friday i’m in love #26 //

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 // What I Wore: leopard print cardi & sheer skirt


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!

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!

wishlist // the clutch

clutches

One thing about being a fashion or style blogger is you are always looking for the perfect accent to your outfit.  Some sort of punctuation and a clutch can be just that item!

I really love the trend of an over sized clutch lately, but even just a small clutch can compliment an outfit so nicely.  It’s a wonderful statement in taste!

I’ve been finding my clothing choices lately to be very monochrome, which works well, since it seems to be fairly on trend.  But I find myself wanting a little something extra for each look and I think it’s the clutch that’s been missing!

These are a few of my top clutches I’ve seen while online window shopping lately!  (Don’t forget that hologram clutch from last weeks ASOS wishlist as well!!)

1//Patent Leatherette Clutch – Forever 21. Cute and ready for a party & it’s on sale for $13.99!!

2//Nali 3D Stone Clutch Bag – ASOS, I love how bold this bag is! It’s large, bright yellow and studded! Be still, my beating heart!

3//Cutwork Clutch, SimplyBe, I adore the laser cut and the bright pink underlay! I also love that this one comes with a crossbody strap!

4//Vegas Cutout Clutch, Fashion to Figure.  I have been enamored with this bag since GarnerStyle posted it on facebook a couple months ago.  It also comes in a great yellow, but is sadly sold out in that colour right meow.

5//Modernist Faux Leather Clutch, Forever 21. Ultra simple & chic clutch that will work with absolutely any outfit!

6//Elusive Edition Bag, ModCloth.  This novelty clutch has a curious whimsy to it that just draws me in.  Absolutely perfect for witchy days or Harry Potter inspired outfits!!

 

What kind of bag are you coveting right now?

PS.  If you are wanting to see more of what I’m up to, like what I’m reading or listening to, or more ootd’s, make sure to follow me on instagram & facebook!
