Day 13

At the Gallery

In addition to designing Norwegian Wood my husband Tyson and I also have a small gallery/boutique here in Montreal called Heaquarters where we sell work by indie artists and designers. Tyson’s selling his art at a local zine fair today, so I’m spending the day working at our boutique. I’m wearing a vintage leopard print blazer with amazing back cutout, another great find from the eBay Green Team. I decided to try out the dress as a long vest, I’ve been wearing it both open or buttoned up a bit throughout the day. I’ve layered it over a jersey dress I picked up in NY this spring, black tights and my oxblood Doc Martins…love these boots so much! I had the same ones in high school, but sadly my mom threw them out (they WERE trashed…) but I reinvested in them about 2yrs ago. Such a timeless wardrobe staple!

Apologies for the less than stellar photos, I’m using a different camera today than I usually do and no tripod, yikes! Balancing the camera on random objects to try to get a good pic is not an easy task!



Love how the boots and the jersey dress look together! Well done 🙂

fan freakin’ tastic! I am a big fan of layering, and this has hit the jackpot. And it makes me very nostalgic for MY docmartins (which were purple, and which I tossed.. I cant even blame mom for that one, sadly). In any event, bravo!

And can you clarify – what fabric are you using for the dress right now? You had mentioned that there was a change coming, and I havent seen any note of it. tks.

what material is the dress made out of??? some days it looks kind of like a jersey type thing but then the next day it doesn’t… are there 2? it must be a tough decision which fabric to use… if it works in the winter, then it’s too heavy in the summer, and vice versa… but i guess you could just choose a middle ground and accessorize… that’s kind of the beauty of a long dress, too…

Still working with the silk dress ladies, trust me, you all will be the first to know when I get the jersey one!

That dress is so versatile! I can’t wait until I can buy one!! And the length is great, especially since you’ve shown us so many ways to shorten/highlight it

Love love! Leopard and DMs = two of my major obsessions. I’ve got black patent ones but I’m thinking of investing in another colour sometime soon …

Well, you certainly look like the owner of an indie art gallery! I love the jacket and the boots, and the dress underneath is nice, too. I’d like to see the dress worn open more often.

Just been through all your dailies, and this is by far my favourite (photo 2 in particular) so far. The colours suit your skin tone, the shape works with your figure, and it’s so arty… 🙂 love it!
