On the third day at WMCFW, the rain didn’t stop attendees from wearing fashionable frocks. The wet weather was a bit of a bummer, but I injected some colour into my all-Canadian ensemble with a striped organza dress by Breeyn McCarney, an adorable perfume purse and a polka-dot umbrella. A little fascinator added some more whimsy to the look as well. I’m wearing a Mackage wool coat, pink striped organza dress designed by Breeyn McCarney, a fascinator by Ophelie Hats, Dollarama clear polka-dot umbrella (a STEAL for $2), Aldo perfume purse and Nine West booties. This perfume purse was love at first sight. It holds all my essentials if I play tetris with my keys and wallet, and the little gold tassel and chain strap are a nice touch as well.

The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, and the Duomo, designed by Brunelleschi is one of the most spectacular cathedrals I’ve visited.

Today is Easter for anyone who follows the Orthodox religion. Even though I’m away from home and I miss dressing up my cats as Easter bunnies, living in Holland is like an Easter paradise. Not only can I get Belgian chocolate, but there are baby sheep living outside my window. I can’t resist photographing these adorable little munchkins. They live in the field next to the space boxes and sometimes in the morning I can even hear them. I’m wearing a sea foam green lace dress from Forever XXI, polka dot tights from H&M and nude and black oxfords from Clarks, which were purchased in Paris. The sheep are the perfect Easter pets, here’s a video I made of the lambs. I decorated my nails in Spring colours and I have been collecting easter eggs all over.
