World Wednesday on a Friday

World wednesday is a little late this week.
This week features Hattitude in LA (the hills in the background) This is a cute Hattitude necklace. It features a vintage brooch, which is three butterflies. This is a great necklace because it's so neutral and can be worn all the time.
Don't forget to send in your Hattitude photos, the draw for the free earrings is coming up, first week in December!

Pleated high waisted pants

My next mission is to find some pleated high waisted menswear inspired pants. Some people are a bit iffy on them, but I have fallen in love with them. I'm not sure whether I will be able to wear them or not a) I'm not tall, I'm only 5'4 and b) I do not have an hour glass we'll see. I'll have to go scouring the thrift stores this weekend. Actually I doubt I'll have time to this weekend. I have two shows I'm selling Hattitude at coming up. On saturday I am at the macville School christmas craft show, I've heard it's really good. They have been advertising for it like crazy, plus it's in my home town. Then on Sunday I'm selling Hattitude in Toronto for a "Passion for Fashion" fundraiser for cancer and sick kids hospital.

These are the pants I'll be looking for, posted from a really cute blog that you should check out Sally Jane Vintage by clicking here. This photo is from her blog. Check out the other photos from this sequence by clicking here.

Pumpkin Carving and Christmas Shows

I went shopping for my first christmas present for a girlfriend last monday...and tonight I carved pumpkins with another girlfriend...Christmas in Halloween month??
Over the weekend it sure was cold enough to be Christmas time, I was in London and it snowed one morning! brr, chilly! I made sure to bundle up in my wool coat, mitts and hat. Today was a lot nicer though, a beautiful fall day. I took a stroll around my town while heading to the bank.

Speaking of Christmas in October, Hattitude will be for sale at the Macville school Christmas Fair this Saturday October 24th, 2009.

Hattitude will also be for sale at a "Passion for Fashion" cancer and sick kids hospital fundraiser in Toronto Safari Bar and Grill on Sunday October 25th, 2009.

Get unique and one-of-a-kind Christmas presents for your family and friends, or just treat yourself, hey, it's cold out, we deserve new accessories!

Hattitude one-of-a-kind Bracelets and unique earrings make great stocking stuffers, or an "isn't she lovely" necklace.

Hattitude Wedding Shoot

Hattitude has designed and created for a couple wedding custom work. I did a Hattitude photo wedding Shoot yesterday so i can start designing a brochure to hand out to wedding and bridal stores to start getting some custom work for weddings which is what i would love to start doing more of.

I love custom work, because I love taking someone's outfit and designing the perfect necklace with the neck line, colours and fabric of the dress. I also love when they are able to give me their grandmothers brooch they they want to wear on their wedding day, and make it into a fashionable custom necklace.

It's also nice when the bride gives her bridesmaid some Hattitude custom jewellery for the wedding to wear with their dresses, yet it's a great gift because they can keep wearing the jewellery with all other dresses and of course they're one-of-a-kind which is always a nice touch to give a bridesmaid!

I also have done mother of the bride custom necklace for their outfit as well as even custom bracelets and necklace's for the grandmother of the bride!
The wedding shoot was a lot of fun! Thanks to my amazing photographer and of course my models! You ladies are beautiful.

Can't Take them off...

I have finally found some high waisted jeans, man they are hard to come by unless you want the cheap mondays! i even went to H and M which usually has everything under the sun, but all their pants were low rise.

Guess where I found some! WINNERS. I was just looking for jeans, and I guess I was in the 'older' woman's section and I stumbled across a pair of skinnies, so I grabbed them and tried them on, low and behold they were high waisted....and girls let me tell you I am never ever ever taking them off. What have we been doing to ourselves all these years with low rise, butt showing, hip hiking and pulling up our pants all the time...high waisted is the way to go, thank gosh they came back into fashion, because they are the most comfortable things ever. I am embracing this fade because it's just so comfy. They don't cut you, like the low rise ones do, they don't give you a muffin top, and they look super cute with all the fall frilly tops out this season tucked into them! Embrace it ladies, they are woooonderful!

I purchased some cheap mondays from karmaloop last night since I went to the mall, and no stores have any jeans that suit me! plus at aritzia where they sell cheap mondays, they're 75, online I got them for 50!

Oh also big news, I am in the process of creating an ETSY account. It is coming along. I am purchasing a digital camera today. I know can you believe I don't own one already. I've been using my boyfriends D80 for the last year, but I think it's time I purchased my own. Exciting!

October may be one of my favourite months, simply for the fact that halloween comes at the end! I'm not a fan of cold weather though that October has brought this year. If I had a choice, I'd be living in Barbados from October 1st until June 1st each year. I don't fair cold weather well.

Halloween is marvelous though. This year I want to go as Eve and my boyfriend as Wall-e. If you have not seen that movie. It's really cute and definitely worth checking it out.

The best though is going to the pumpkin patch, or in our case, the neighbours farm where they grow fields of pumpkins, picking the best ones, coming home and scooping out the guts of it. I love squishing the pumpkin guts in between my fingers (is that weird?). Carving pumpkins is my favourite thing to do.

Also my Trunk Show at Body Graphics was a huge success! Thank you Body Graphics for having me for the weekend and thanks to everyone for coming! The jewellery looked so great with the clothing at Body Graphics!

Perhaps I should go to the local thrift store and pick up some overalls and make a family of pumpkin heads this year!
