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!

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!

“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”  -Coco Chanel

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute.  It is the perfect harmony.”  -Coco Chanel

Today’s outfit is 100% inspired by the first lady of style, Coco Chanel.  Though I sadly, do not own a single Chanel piece I have often taken my cues from Chanel.

I grew up watching Fashion Television, which had a huge impact on me.  I love the art that comes with design and styling.  I think growing up and constantly looking at high fashion has trickled down into how I now dress, even on my low budget fashion level.

This look is simple, but I adhered to Coco’s famous advice and took off an item before shooting  today’s look.   I also find much comfort in black & white outfits.  I think they can speak so loudly, even with the absence of a bright colour.

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!

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 as well! 

// Audrey from Big or Not to Big //Drôles de dames

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!

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!

I’m busy trying to get used to my new laptop (YAY!).  It’s an HP and I’m sad to admit how dreadful I am now with PCs these day’s as I’ve spent all my time on macs for the last four years.  I was even thinking about downloading a skin to make it run like OS just so I can get my bearings.

I’m doubly excited this week,  because in addition to my new computer I also have plans to head out with a friend to take some proper & professional shots with his new camera!  I’m really looking forward to that, as I’m hating the grainy low quality photos I’ve been posting lately with my ipad.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my ipad dearly, it’s been really helpful to still get outfit shots done, but the camera is not the best and if it’s an overcast day, I loose the ability to take even halfway decent shots.

// what I wore //

I love monochrome, as you’ve probably noticed, most of my wardrobe is either black / white / grey or  off white.  My wardrobe is always running slim on pattern and colour.

This week I wore one of my favourite tops that I have owned FOREVER!  I sometimes think of letting it go, but something makes me keep it.  And Every time I wear it, I’m thankful I never let it go!

This skirt is just a perfect pleated skater skirt I got last winter while down in Las Vegas.  It’s the perfect basic and just makes so many outfits!

The real inspiration for this outfit though comes from the earrings.  They’re just tiny Eiffel tower danglies that I inherited from my Mother-in-law and I’ve always treasured them.  I know they are not worth a lot of money and that you can get these little trinkets on every street corner in Paris, but it still does nothing to diminish their charm for me!

They’re cute and remind me of Paris, a city that I truly love and can’t wait to go visit again.  Perhaps someday I’ll have an apartment there!

//hat & skirt – forever21+

//lace blouse – winners (from yeeeears ago)

//gold sparkly platform heels – payless shoes

//skinny belt – ASOS curve

//flower petal medusa jewelry – industrial strength

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 featuring straight sizes and gentlemen as well! 

// Emmi from Roosa’s Closet // 1+1

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!

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!

I seem to be taking my hair style cues from St Vincent lately!  I’m just kind of going with what my hair wants to do and I’m actually digging it for once!!

I just got back from a family vacation to see my younger sister graduate from high school! Honours with distinction to boot, she’s a super smarty pants!  It was really great to see all my family as well.  But boy o’ boy is it awesome to be back in the coastal air, it was so dry back home my skin was NOT happy!

What I wore:

It’s not often I wear pants, so having some statement Beetlejuice pants are a really great thing to have in the back of your wardrobe when the feeling strikes.  I originally purchased them for my Joker costume last Hallowe’en, but I kinda like pulling them out for certain outfits!

I’m also super happy to be sporting TONNES of sparkly bling, nothing like wearing sparkles in the blazing sunshine.  As I write this, I am casting sparkles all over my walls and I’m super pleased!

//sleeveless, hi-lo, drape back blouse – forever 21+ last summer

//black & white striped skinny jeans – forever21+ last fall

//platform wedges – “bamboo” from urbanog

//rhinestone tie necklace – chinatown in vancouver

//rhinestone bird ring – a vendor at the vancouver tattoo show 4 years ago

//lip gloss – rimmel vynil max (this stuff is stiiiicky and a pain in the ass to wear, but it looks damn good for the first few minutes you put it on)

I also received news while I was away that the very lovely Natalie over at Extra Large As Life featured myself, as well as two very stylish gals, Alex from Jet Georgette & Isabel from Dressing Outside The Box!

I don’t seem to have a lot of prints in my wardrobe, but something about this clean lined, chic little number appealed to me.

Since it’s colouring is so soft and girly, I like accessorizing it with harder items, like a black vinyl purse & studded, strappy sandals.

The headband compliments my hair colour so well, I’m super stoked on it! It was a necklace my Mom gave me a few years ago, and as pretty as it was, I found I just wasn’t wearing it, so I turned it into something I will wear on a much more regular basis!

What I wore:

//geometric sakura print dress – dress911

// deco print vinyl purse – torrid (many years old)

// studded sandals – Ardene

// headband – redesigned & crafted by me!

I’m actually thinking of creating & selling more unique/refurbished headbands. What do you think! Any interest?!

I was very fortunate to be the WINNER of The Curvy Elle’s 2nd anniversary giveaway!!

I got all sorts of goodies, including a journal, note cards, a cute “curvy” tote, maybelline mascara & stiletto eyeliner, an eos lip balm (yummy!), a curvy elle tee, a zip pouch (which is already full with all my lipstick!), earrings, sunnies and most important of all, $50 credit to The Curvy Elle store!!

I had a lot of fun picking out my items and settled on two red items which is very unlike me!  I came away with a goooorgeous deep red velvet midi skirt (with pockets!!) and an bright red, ultra sheer, flowy, vintage crop blouse!

what I wore:

I’m still trying to find just the right thing to wear with the blouse, it’s so perfect for summer, so I’m thinking highwaisted shorts will be the winner if I can find them.

The velvet skirt takes the cake, it’s just heaven.  It’s a slightly heavier weight, so I may not get tonnes of wear out of it right away, but this baby will be perfect for fall/winter/spring.  It’s so soft and lux, I really can’t get over how much I love it!
