Samantha- Francis Bacon Painting + Pez Candy








Blazer- Dries Van Noten blazer from Holt Renfrew in Toronto
T-shirt- Stella McCartney knitted yellow t-shirt from Holt Renfrew in Toronto
Pants- Dries Van Noten pants from Holt Renfrew in Toronto
Pin-Vintage wooden ribbon head pin from Brimfield Antique Show in MA
Glasses- Vintage sunnies (no label) from Showdown Vintage sample sale in Toronto
Bag- Paloma Picasso suede button bag (borrowed from Mom) bought in the 80's
Shoes- Fendi leopard flat from Fendi store in NYC and Cast from Doc :)

The Look: Francis Bacon Painting + Pez Candy

Fun Fact: One of my favourite collections of all time was the Dries Van Noten Fall 2009 Collection. The blazer and pants that I'm wearing were styled together on the runway with an orange tshirt, I opted for yellow to give it a punch. Click here to see the obsessive and timeless collection. Dries was inspired by shades of Francis Bacon's paintings, shrimp pink, beige, mauve and ochre and the whole collection looks like a painter's palette.
PS. I went to the doctor today and he said my cast should be off in 2 weeks!!! 6 weeks down...Yahooo! Let the countdown BEGIN! Pin It Now!

The ensemble looks great with the yellow, but i do think that orange would have be great as well.I am very much into orange lately he, he, he.
I love the clutch bag, It has given me an idea of how to dress up a very plain one I have.
You are always an inspiration...
Every morning I get up looking forward to see what you three girls come up with.
Mil besos from Spain.

Wow your blog is amazing!! So funny to say you're from Toronto and the first pictures I see are of British designers and trends and Giles if it weren't for the text I'd have thought you were in London. You have a great blog and great style. And you are rocking that cast. I had the longer version when I sprained my ankle living in Paris for a year. I did not look as fabulous as you did ! Hope it heels soon. I'm adding your blog to my list I love it !!
