I honestly can’t believe that we’re already in mid-September – it seriously feels like we just started summer!
While Fall is my favourite time of year, I kind of feel like I barely made a dent in my summer wardrobe. (Seriously – my office is so cold that you pretty much dress for winter year-round!) Luckily, it’s still pretty warm here in Ontario so I’m still getting some use out of my summer items, but as you all know Canadian weather is a little unpredictable so that could change any minute.
And yes, that means I’m still wearing lots of white even after Labour Day. It’s such silly rule when you think about it. I’ve always wondered where it originated from, so I did a bit of Googling.
Apparently, back in the late 1800s someone came up with this rule in order to tell who was “acceptable” (aka who was popular or of high social status), and who wasn’t. Basically it’s a Mean Girls on Wednesdays we wear pink situation. We all know Coco Chanel marched to beat of her own drum, so it should come as no surprise that she was notorious for wearing white year-round and not abiding by this silly fashion-rule, so I think it’s safe to say we can all do the same.
Moving on… I’ve also recently fallen in love with anything that’s off the shoulder. Which is a problem because it’s Canada and as I mentioned our weather is a little unpredictable and winter could be here any minute without notice. Just last April we were in tank-tops one day and then we had a freak snow-storm the next. Canadian weather is crazy, am I right?
I recently picked up this pearl embellished off the shoulder chambray top from Quiz Clothing, along with three other items: two jumpsuits (I posted a sneak peek of one on Instagram last week) and a dress. Of these items, two more are also off the shoulder – I told you I was obsessed!
I really loved this particular shirt that I picked up and the detailing on it. I’m digging the ruffled sleeves and if you know me at all you will know that I have a thing for pearls, so naturally I loved the pearl embellishments on this top. I also love how loose and flowy it is.
I mentioned on my IG stories that I prior to this I haven’t gotten anything from Quiz Clothing before. If you haven’t heard of them, they are a clothing company based in the UK. They offer Worldwide shipping, it’s 12 CAD and arrives within 8 days.
I was a little unsure about sizing, because it looked like the smallest size they had was a 6. I ended up going with a size 8 in the jumpsuits and a small in the top and dress based on the measurements from the size chart, which ended up being extremely accurate. For reference, I usually wear a size XS/S or 4 at stores like H&M and Zara depending on how I want items to fit. I also wasn’t too sure what to expect quality wise, but I was actually blown away by the quality of everything I received and would definitely recommend that you check them out if you haven’t already. They have everything from prom dresses, to everyday wear and accessories.
Rather than spamming you with a million photos, I also thought I would split my posts up about the items that I got from Quiz Clothing, so keep an eye out for those.
P.S. – Let me know if you wear white after labour day or not!
