I don’t mean to embarrass you…

but can I please just take a moment to tell you how much I love you guys? Your comments, your guest posts, your emails, your support on Facebook and Twitter make me such a happy little blogger.

And when you pass along awards? I just want to give you a big virtual hug.


I received the Stylish Blogger award from not one, but two of the most inspiring people in the blogosphere: Dream Sequins and Hauteworld, who tagged me to list the 10 things that create my unique style. So here we go:

1. I mix and match shamelessly.
2. I’m probably wearing your grandma’s old brooch.
3. I will wear my husband’s shirts, my sister’s shoes and my mom’s old necklaces. Together.
4. I like jewel tones. I have fair, fair skin so light colours can easily send my complexion into zombie territory.
5.  I think the perfect outfit is made of a dress from Value Village and shoes from Holt Renfrew.
6.  I’m probably wearing your grade school teacher’s skirt.
7.  Costume jewelry is my best friend, but I’m also really good friends with jewelry jewelry.
8.  I wear my skirts short.
9.  I douse myself in Stella by Stella McCartney.
10.  I love when clothes and accessories remind me of far-off places, which is why I tend to shop more when I’m traveling.


I’d like to pass it along to a few glamourous bloggers: Shoes from Around the Globe (you blow my mind every day), Cafe Fashionista (your blog always make me laugh), Couture Carrie (you have such an eye), It’s a Beautiful Life (I wouldn’t have started the Anthology if it weren’t for you) and Option8 (your posts are dazzling, dahling).


The ridiculously kind Shoes From Around the Globe passed along the Circle of Friends award, which I’d like to award to my blogging BFFs (my BBFFs, if you will): Haute World (even though reading your blog tortures me), Dream Sequins (you are the one who is beyond gorgeous), Vancity Allie (you make me want to spend more time outdoors), Room 907 (I love you, man), The Extrovert (even though you’re my sister, you can still be my friend).

What would I do without you guys? No really. What would I do? Cook more?

    Congrats on your awards, darling, and thank you SO much for honoring me and for your sweet words. Love your facts ~ I heart jewel tones too. Maybe even in a coat for fall??

    aw thanks so much for the honour – your blog is one I read everyday and your writing and style inspires me! You already had a little seed planted in your head about The Anthology, so i only helped you push that thought along. Only YOU could make it blossom the way it is.

    you’ve inspired me to look at vintage one more time. See my latest post!

    Loved reading this! Of course I suspected most of these style facts already ;) And thanks so much for handing over an award! It means so much coming from you… so glad Livie inspired you to blog to begin with!

    Oh and yes, I am in Account Management. Every agency I’ve been with, they mistook me for a creative in the first week… who knows why. But our creatives actually get to travel more than we do… I only go to shoots if our client does. I can definitely say you’re the best-dressed copywriter I’ve come across though!

    eep! thanks for passing on the award! (i’m never good at accepting any sort of praise.) i’m quite flattered. (am i supposed to write 10 things about my personal style…?)

    congrats on the awards; well deserved!

    ps – i forget if i mentioned before that i loved your wedding photos! (and your dress, jewelry, etc. too!) i passed on the photo studio to my friend; i hope she books a consultation with them.

    I am definitely completely bonkers from my dental-related meds :) I thought I replied to this post already! Eek! Congrats on your awards… and thank YOU for the award. BBFF. I like the sound of that… Isn’t it weird how the internet has fostered this blogging community? I feel like I have friends all around the world. Not to be cheesy or anything :)

    […] the old (her bag) with the new (her Banana Republic dress). And, come to think of it, she tends to stick to jewel tones […]
