wHiTe LiNeN = tHe oNsEt oF sUmMeR

I went to two barbeques organized by two set of friends on Saturday(one was a fundraiser)... the other just to celebrate summer...

I wore this really loose white linen dress with a really lovely Marciano slip underneath... and I feel... like it's happening... finally... SUMMER!!!




















I bought the exact same dress in black.. which might or might not have been a smart purchase... seeing as black in extreme heat almost made me faint when I visited Nigeria a few weeks ago... ah well... I'll style it otherwise and perhaps wear it at night...

Dress: United Colours Of Benetton(I just sort of rediscovered this store after many years of neglect... picked up three linen dresses and 3 linen skirts when I went in there... they do very simple but chic things with linen I find)

Prada butterfly sunglasses from Sunglass Hut


Bamboo white embellished flats(I'm not sure who this bamboo character or company is... but I was soo excited to find these flats at an obscure store in Brampton for only $55(oh and I actually fit into a size 10 with this brand... so I think I'll get a second pair in black... the turqoise stones on that one are to die for...)
















Bracelets from this gorgeous market I visited in Ghana... the bangles are made from elephant tusks... very African... very gorgeous... very Louis Vuitton yes? lol
















Ring: A fantastic (and cheap) find from THE BAY!!!(Of all places right?) It cost only $25!!! It is so gorgeous I'm not coherent when I wear it. It has butterflies and dots and dangly things... and its bronze!!! Costume jewellry (sometimes) rocks!!!

  7. I think you are fab but I have to be bring out my inner semi - PETA right now and say that I am not a fan of the elephant tusk bracelets. I know, the animal is already dead and gone by the time the bracelets appeared in the venue you purchased them from but its all supply and demand. No supply if there is no demand. I understand the use of cow hide and left over parts of domestically raised and consumed animals but items that animals are specifically poached for, I can't rubber stamp that.
