Turbans & Spider Legs



On Bianca: Vintage scarf worn as turban, Emporio Armani shirt (similar here), vintage Emporio Armani cutoffs (similar here), Zara coat (similar here), Cheap Monday Monolit wedges (similar here)

On Dani: Zara embellished blouse, H&M coat, Adidas trackpants, Tinley Road heels, Emily Woudenberg necklace

As we write this blog post (or every blog post, for that matter), we reflect on the photos we took and proceed to wonder why on earth we don’t dress to flatter our body types. Don’t get us wrong, we luv all bodies in every shape n size, but when it comes to ourselves we can be a little, well, self-conscious. We are girls, after all!!!

On that note, it would totally make sense if I (this is Bianca b-t-dubs) wore low-waisted pants to extend my short torso or flat shoes to downplay my chicken legs, and if Danielle wore fitted garments to accentuate HER PERFECT FIGURE (can you hear the hint of jealousy in my voice? Can you read the itty bitty smidge of it in between these lines?!?!). But alas – we do not do either of these things, as is evident in these photos. My high-waisted shorts and sky-high wedges make my legs look like that of a cellar spider. Danielle’s oversized coat and lazy track pants make her look like a luxury bag lady if I ever saw one. Thankfully, we’re both wearing fur and turbans and have a loving friendship, so everything will be ok :’)

    I’ve been following you ladies for a little over a month now and have been inspired every time I revisit the blog. I am also extremely proud that you both hail from Toronto! (woot woot!) So I was ecstatic when I saw Bianca featured in Nasty Gal’s latest blog post.


    Keep it up ladies!!
