Neighbourly Love


Dress? Diane von Furstenberg from The Refinerie (similar hereBomber? Costa Blanca
Boots? c/o Le Canadienne (last year, still availableVest? Vintage rework, Modify your Closet 

I got this dress from The Refinerie, which is a new fancy consignment place on Ottawa St. I thought some deep thoughts when I first saw the dress and then I came back a few weeks later and got it when they were having a party and a sale. Wine and a discount, I'm in. I love that it is a classic DvF wrap dress but the hem is a little shorter and the skirt is a little fuller.
I think it's dangerous to have The Refinerie as the neighbour to my store. Technically, it's not my neighbour but they are close enough to walk over in high heels. And that is how I measure distances... if I can make it to your place in super high heels, we are neighbours. And even better than their close proximity is the fact that they painted a huge, fantastic mural along the one wall. I think they did it as a backdrop for fashion bloggers...;) So kind, right?

Although I do not love the "furry" vests (or any garment, actually), you pull it off beautifully. Loved the dress!!!

I hope we get to see some pictures with that mural as backdrop, soon!

The dress is so lovely on you! I too compare distances in heels :P

The dress is just fabulous! So glad you finally got it and on sale, while having a drink!, cause is definitely a great piece, and I'm sure you'll be able to style in tons of ways and take it all year round!

Haha, love your "neighbour system"... it sounds perfectly logical to me. As for the dress? Great score, and I'm definitley a sucker for drinking and shopping. Did it recently at LOFT and felt like it's my new calling in life! ;)
