lipstick jungle


Since I've spent the last four days moving all of my belongings from one apartment to another, my life is what some may call disorganized. I can't find any jewellery and I still have a huge basket full of laundry, so putting an outfit together for this post was quite the task. I work well under pressure though, and was determined to dress up and feature my new olive trench coat. It's so beautiful, everything a trench should be and more!


April 25th marks the 4 year anniversary of mine and Adam's very first date! Since he surprised me with tickets to Cavalia last week, I decided to treat him to a delicious meal at Nicli Antica Pizzeria this evening. If you haven't been to Nicli Antica on East Cordova, I suggest you get your little buns over there asap! This was my second dining experience at Nicli Antica Pizzeria and they once again exceeded my expectations. They do not take reservations, so expect a wait or an opportunity to stand and drink at the bar. Their perfectly executed cocktails or vast selection of wine is sure to keep you occupied! I recommend their 'Bianca' pizza for dinner, though all of their authentic Italian pizzas are worth a try. I will also brag on their behalf, that they make the best tiramisu that I have ever had! If good dessert isn't a reason to go back to a restaurant, then I don't know what is? Whether it's for a date or a friendly get together, I HIGHLY recommend Nicli Antica Pizzeria for lunch or dinner. I promise you will love it! (and no this was not sponsored...it's just that good).

  2. Love how you brightened up your outfit with the blush clutch. It definitely adds a bit of spring to your outfit. Your statement necklace is amazing! Vancouver weather has been so weird lately! The sun was a bit deceiving last week.. I can't wear shorts or dresses because I'm so sensitive to the cold.

  8. First things first: You were already wearing one gorgeous trench on Sunday, and now you have another equally stylish and perfectly cut trench in your wardrobe? Clearly I am overdue for a trip to Plum :) This trench is fabulous- I love the olive shade- and in spite of your in-mid-move status, you are still putting together outfits like a pro.

    Secondly, I'm so glad to hear you like Nicli! It was recommended to me by a friend who said almost exactly the same things you did- in fact, I think she ordered the exact same meal!- and now I know for sure it's a must-try :)

    xox,
    Cee

  17. Aww happy anniversary to you and Adam! That pizzeria looks like such a great place, but the one time the boy and I tried to go the wait was an hour long. We opted for Campognolo on Main instead.

    Your olive trench is such a great piece--so stylish and chic. And what's the lipstick you're wearing? That wine/burgundy shade really suits you!

  18. awwwww you look really beautiful.
    Do you know what the shade of the lipstick is called? I have a similar skin tone and it looks like it goes really well with your skin.
    thanks
