Browsing FLARE.com this week, you just might have seen a familiar face (and pair of aqua pumps)!  I am beyond grateful to be featured in FLARE for their Blogger's Style: Spring Shoes article by Ryan Michael Cheung.  How great is it having a Canadian magazine acknowledge Canadian fashion bloggers?  And some really amazing ones at that.  The best part?  The shoes!!  I have so many pairs of spring shoes on my wishlist, can't wait to get shopping.

So, I was thinking my new Shabby Apple dress was perfect for a spring outfit photo, right?  Throw in a deadline, some bad weather, a super rushed shoot, and you get impossibly dark photos.  Which normally wouldn't be a problem, except that my photoshop decided to crash a few days ago and I've had no way of fixing them.  It has been most devastating, and I really do apologize for the quality but  I'm sure this dress will make many more blog appearances.



In honour of beating the winter blues, what spring shoes are you looking forward to purchasing?

  2. I'm totally obsessed with teal for spring & the texture of the skirt is so gorgeous, it kind of reminds me of Oscar de la Renta. CONGRATS on the feature, you deserve it!

  3. I love the color of those heels! And the short, block heel give it a total retro vibe that I love. I totally need to go spring shoe shopping. I want some platform strappy ones in colorblock patterns, and maybe a few more peep toes. :) <3

  14. I guess I am just so used to seeing dark outfit pictures (my own!) that I didn't even notice anything in yours... Plus you're wearing such pretty bright shoes that they light up the whole picture anyway ;-) Congrats on the feature! It's always great to see familiar faces popping up on fashion (magazine) websites.

    The outfit you're wearing is definitely feature-worthy. The dress is beautiful! It looks really nice on you.

    Have a good Friday! xo Leonie

  22. You look so ready for an afternoon in Italy in your Spanish Steps dress, Alicia - so fun to get to see it on someone, it's one of my very favourites from Shabby Apple (so much so I wished I could have won the giveaway myself!) Your aqua shoes are such an unexpected match with it, but they're perfect - here's hoping spring comes soon so you'll have more chance to wear them outside :)
