Here is a first look in my new / vintage Levi's 569. With vintage Levi's it can be hard to find a pair that fits right and I have sure had my struggles. But lucky for me there is a local shop here in Gastown, Vancouver that has a great selection of all styles. The shop is called Hey Jude so if your in Vancouver I highly recommend you stopping by.

But there I learnt something I didn't know from one of the owners there. I told her that I had a hard time finding ones that fit right because I have bigger thighs so most of the time they end up looking just so not right and that's when she told me what I was missing. Most people think that the 501's are the ones that are going to be best because that's what you see most people wear but if you have bigger thighs like me then she told me that the 505's are the way to go for my body shape.

I was so happy to here this. And I had found a pair of 505's that were great but I happened to grab this pair of 569's as well and the fit of them was like no pair of jeans I have had before so I was so intrigued and knew I wanted them...which are the ones here in the photos.

I love the wide leg and the fact that they are so long I put a huge cuff on them on the bottom instead of cutting them off and I love it. So far I have loved wearing this jeans with ankle boots and simple black tops. Next time I want to try wearing them with the cuffs down and heels, hopefully it turns out the way I imagine in my head. Anyways, that's a little bit about them and I hope that you can find the right pair of Levi's for you as well. Please let me know what your favourite style is if you have any!!

As you saw in my last post here, I got myself a new bag. A black bag that is great for both daytime and nighttime. So as soon as I received it I had to immediately wear it. So I threw it on over a cozy knit to go enjoy the sunset and take some photos. Unfortunately we did not stay out for long as I probably should have put a coat on but oh well.

This bag is my new go to. If I don't need to bring a lot of things out with me then I grab this bag, so I know that it was money well spent. I am actually totally obsessing with small bags at the moment. The idea of having to lug around a big bag just does not get me excited so I can see myself looking for more small bags in the future.

I would love to hear what you think of the bag and if there is any bag that you are loving at the moment as well.




A few new goodies in my wardrobe

I thought I would share a few new items in my wardrobe that I am absolutely loving. I haven't been buying lots of things but the items I have gotten are just so good and are great additions to my wardrobe.

Elizabeth and James Cynnie flap cross body bag - I had been wanting and looking for a small black bag, something I could use for day and evening. Seeing as I online "window shop" all the time, I ended up stumbling upon this one in the sale section on Shopbop. I saw it and thought it looked perfect, then when I received it, it was even better in person. I have been using it a ton and am VERY happy with this new bag purchase.

Vintage Levi's in 569 - I went shopping a few weekends ago and stopped by a really great local store in Gastown called Hey Jude. They sell vintage beauties like tons of Levis, products from local artists and such. I went there looking for a pair of Levi's and found a couple that I really liked. I ended up with these 569, but found out that 501's are not for me and 505's are better for my body shape. Anyways, the ones I got are SO cool, high waisted, straight leg and super baggy. I style them with a big cuff at the bottom. Very different from any others I have. Next time I will get myself a pair of 505's.

Vans Old Skool - The white sneakers in my closet are starting to look and feel like they are almost done so I have been on the hunt for a new pair of white sneakers. I saw these ones online and have really been wanting to get a pair of Vans (I have never owned a pair). So when I put them on, I was in love. I am a sneaker kind of girl and I loved these instantly. The only problem is that I want to wear them all the time but don't want to get them dirty so I think I have to get another pair of sneakers in white leather so I can switch between them.

On my Mind - Fashion, Beauty, Personal - In My Dreams Vancouver Fashion Blog


I wanted to start a new series here on the blog about all the things that go on in my head because sometimes you can forgot or you have so much going on that you don't even know where to start or how to put it into words. So I thought making a series called On my Mind would be a good way of just quickly jotting down all the things running through my mind as a good way for you to see what I am thinking about and what is going on in my life.

This is about all things, fashion, beauty, personal, all of the good stuff. I am going to make it pretty short and sweet, just telling you the basics and with the little mood board you can kind of see what I am talking about. So here we go.

Starting with Fashion
  •  Corsets - I am crushing hard core on this recent trend. I think it is a fun and sexy way to update a basic outfit.
  • DENIM - You know how much I love denim and I am always on the search for more.
  • Gucci - All things Gucci are grabbing my attention, just loving what they are doing lately.
  • Ruffles - I love this feminine details on tops right now, need to get my hands on some.
Moving onto Beauty
  • By Terry - I never knew of this brand since a couple months ago and there is some products I really want to try from them.
  • Highlighters - Hourglass ambient lighting collection. Need to try it.
  • Giorgio Armani foundation - I am really thinking about getting a foundation by them after all the good things I have been hearing about them lately.
  • Eyeliner - I have never been good at eyeliner but I am dabbling with it lately.
Personal
  • Healthy eating - I have really been trying to eat healthier this year. Not as a New years resolution but more of a life change. 
  • Money - Or should I say lack there of. I am trying to be better with money and trying to think of ways that I can make more.
  • Self confidence - This is an everyday struggle in my life, haven't figured it out yet (it's quite bad).
  • Family - Praying for some and rejoicing with others.

So this is the format that I think I will be doing with this series and I really like it and hope you guys will enjoy as well. It is a good way to see really what is on my mind during this time. So when I feel like I have lots of new things on my mind, I will post another one.

My favourite jeans

Favorite denim jeans - AGOLDE jamie brooklyn - Vancouver Fashion Blogger

Favorite denim jeans - AGOLDE jamie brooklyn - Vancouver Fashion Blogger

If you haven't noticed, I am a denim lover. Denim is my everyday go to and I rarely wear anything else. My denim collection isn't that big really, but I'm working on it. With that being said I still have my favourites that I consistently pick up and wear maybe even too much like in my two latest posts here and here. But I don't care because there is nothing better then a great pair of jeans.

So these jeans that I am talking about, as you can see above are my AGOLDE jeans that I bought last year in late Summer. They are called the hi rise jamie in brooklyn. Can you believe that I almost didn't buy them, I am so glad that I did. So as it says in the name of the jean, it is a high rise and I would say it is like a girlfriend fit. Not too fitted but not too loose either. I love this fit and think they are so flattering on pretty much everyone, they are just an all round great looking jean.

I think the fit is great for me because I have bigger thighs so I need a jean that will hide that as best as possible and because of the slightly loose fit it stays away from the body in the best way. Also the denim is great quality and you can really feel it. It is a really nice thick denim but still comfortable. Another bonus being that is it made from 100% organic cotton which I love and think is so good. I didn't know that when I bought them and I was happy to see that.

I am definitely going to purchase another pair of AGOLDE jeans in the future. So if you are on the hunt for great denim, I suggest you check them out.

If your obsessed with Scandinavia like I am. My hunt for a Scandinavian wardrobe has been always on my mind, while keeping my own touch.

My obsession with Scandinavia (mainly Denmark) started when I met my boyfriend who is from Denmark back in 2008. I moved to Denmark with him just a few months after meeting him and fell in love with the country and fashion right away of course. Since then Scandinavia have forever been in my heart and my favourite part of the world.

And little did I know before going there just how big and amazing fashion is there. Till this day I still haven't gotten enough. There are so many amazing fashion houses there and the people are so fashionable. Their style is unique because it is minimal but yet not...if that makes sense.

But anyways, I have learnt a few things about the Scandinavian fashion and how they dress so hopefully I can help you with your wardrobe as well.

1. Quality over quantity. Buying quality is something they all do, it is important to their aesthetic. You will mostly likely see everyone wearing one piece from a Scandinavian house brand as well as more high end designers. Even though fast fashion like H&M is very popular there they are good at mixing it up, styling it with higher end items.

2. Minimal Styling - Danish people are the best at taking crazy outfits and making them look minimal and put together effortlessly. No matter what they are wearing the minimal touch comes through, even if it is full on prints. But it is also true that you will see a lot of black, white, grey and denim (which is basically my wardrobe).

3. Confidence - I think this is another important part of their overall look. Is that they are themselves. They wear what they want unapologetically. Their confidence to pull of crazy outfits and look amazing has always been something I have admired SO much and wish I could do myself.

If any of you are like me, which I know some of you are, then wearing colour is a tricky thing. I tend to mostly wear black, white, grey and denim (lots of denim). So when I do try to wear colour I can't help but feel a little less like me. But I have learnt a few ways to add colour to my wardrobe and still feel like me so I thought I would share.

1. This should be common sense but sometimes it can be forgotten. But when buying a piece that you would normally wear in black might just be something you would wear in a colour. Like if you are a jeans a and t-shirt kind of girl, instead of pulling out the basic white tee, wear a pink one instead, it's on trend and you are still wearing a look you are comfortable in.

2. This is goes with the first one, but wear the colourful pieces with your favourite to go pieces in your wardrobe like you would normally wear these items. Like in this outfit I am wearing, I love pairing this blazer and jeans with black and white but instead this time I pulled out my Acne bright pink knit underneath. It was a look that I would normally wear just with a pop of colour and I think the look turned out amazing. 

3. If wearing a bright coloured top still isn't your thing another great way to add a colour of colour is through your accessories. One of my favourite looks that I see on people is when they wear basic outfits but with a colourful shoe, like sneakers or maybe a full monotone look with a pop of colour in the shoes or bag. 

So now you know, you don't have to wear something that isn't you. But in any case, if you are wanting to add colour to your wardrobe, using these tips and tricks, just playing around and seeing what you like can help get you started.
