Break from Thrifting

For a long time now, thrift shopping has been a big part of my life. As a budget conscious 25 year old living in a very expensive city, thrifting has really been the most cost effective way to keep my closet and outfits feeling fresh. But recently, I’ve decided to take a break. About a year ago…

A Tradesman Free Workwear Pant

You can usually catch me in workwear pants 4 out of 7 days of the week, so I feel comfortable in saying I know the ins and outs of them. I am the proud owner of at least 10 pairs of pants meant for those who work in the trades (myself not being one of them)…

My Position on Panties

Important question: am I the only 25 year old who is still wearing underwear with “Party Animal” written across the butt? The irony kills me – I never leave my apartment. Where does one buy ‘normal’ underwear? The type that’s not covered in rhinestones and glitter, and doesn’t promise to make your boobs 9x their…

Thrift Haul

https://youtu.be/NP54oDtZIY0 Did a little thrifting and scooped up some goodies I am real excited about! I was in desperate need of a little closet refresh (if you weren’t already aware from previous blog posts), so what better way to fulfill those needs than hitting up the old VV Boutique! Hope you enjoy!

Closet Refresh

This time a year kind of sucks for getting dressed. You’ve been wearing the same old same old for the past few months, and even though you’re ready for a weather change, Mother Nature is not. While you slide on the same pants and same knit you’ve been wearing day after day, you dream of the…

Spring Prep

I’m currently sitting on my dads couch in Haliburton, Ontario and if you don’t know where that is, you’re not alone, but it’s -22 degrees celsius and blizzarding. Having just come out of an extreme cold spell, into 4 days of unseasonably warm spring like weather, and now back into the deep negatives, I’ve had a…

Q&A featuring Vanessa Okafo

https://youtu.be/APosMRhnwHg A few weeks ago I put the feelers out onto the internet to see if a) anyone had any interest in me filming a Q&A, and b) what they would want to know. Shortly after I received a bunch of questions that I actually get asked on a semi-regularl basis, like what kind of Dickies…

Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday season really speaks to me. Well truthfully, it speaks to the shopping addict in me. All year round I try to hold back and not blow all my cash, but come December 1st, I unleash the beast within. This gift guide includes a collection of items I am currently enjoying, or am currently lusting after. You’ve got…
