Ode to a Statement Sleeve

On par with my never ending and total love of black is my love of a statement sleeve…

All the Frills: The Necklace That Eleanor Is Obsessed With

I think I love this necklace as much as Eleanor does (seriously, it’s like sugar to her – every time I wear it she is just all over it). I think I need to buy a version of it in gold…

Wintery Weather

It was snowing pretty much daily when I donned this sweater (hello May in northern Canada!) and was forced to pull out some of my fall and winter items again. I love winter more than most people I know but this was a bit much even for me.

A Dash of Muted Colour

Just the right amount of muted colour to make this not a solid black outfit but also still fully in line with my sartorial leanings.

All the Frills: Book Reviews

I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since my book came out! Over the past year it has been reviewed in a few major journals in my field (hello Journal of British Studies and the English Historical Review) and a few more minor ones and I’ve been reading them with a certain level of detachment (the reviews are overall positive (with a negative one or two, as is to be expected) but I’m pretty far removed from it all this point so I don’t really focus too much on them). It’s hard to fully express just how fully and completely my life has changed since I was knee deep in the research and writing process for this book. It legitimately feels like a lifetime ago.

About As Obnoxious As I Get

Sequins! Sequins! Sequins!

This jacket feels like it needs to be introduced in exactly that way.

I wore this out to dinner recently and I think it’s safe to say both that I was 100% the most obnoxious person in the restaurant in this thing and that I regret nothing.

Leopard Crush

I purchased this leopard print cardigan many moons ago in Scotland and never wear it as much as I’d like. It’s a really lovely muted blush colour with touches of silver thread and it’s definitely one of the more unique pieces I have in my closet (I mean unique for me, in that it’s not black, patterned, and involves pink) and I really need to try to wear it more.

All the Frills: Little Touches at Home

I’ve always got my eyes open for little knick knacks to place around my house (I love the look of well placed little interest items in my various book shelves). So I was pretty pleased when I happened across this rather odd looking silver horn ball thing (that’s about as accurate of a description as I could pull together). It is both rather strange and somehow perfectly suited to my home d├ęcor aesthetic.
