Snow White Halloween Costume

Snow White Halloween Costume | Sara du Jour
I’m baaaaack! And just in time for Halloween. You didn’t think I’d miss an opportunity to play dress up, did you? I’ve dressed up as many iconic fictional females, from Holly Golightly to Lara Croft to Hermione Granger to Belle. This year, I went for the original Disney princess: Snow White. (more…)

Retro White Dress Outfit + Tobi Haul

Retro White Dress Outfit + Tobi Haul | Sara du Jour

White dress c/o Tobi | Aldo kitten heels | Sole Society ‘Vivian’ sunglasses

This spring I’ve been doing something more brave than usual: I’m wearing white. I love the way white looks in an outfit, but when you’re as much of a hazard to yourself as I am, wearing it is a big risk. (more…)

Sparkling New Year’s Eve Outfit

Sparkly New Year's Eve Party Outfit | Sara du Jour

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a smashing time ringing in 2016 with your friends or loves last night. Now that we’re all in bed, browsing the internet and nursing our collective hangovers, let’s talk about fashion.

New Year’s Eve is both one of my favourite nights of the year and one of my favourite nights to dress for. It is without a doubt the sparkliest holiday, and I try to take full advantage.  (more…)

Retro Glamour Little Red Dress Outfit

Retro Glamour Little Red Dress Outfit | Sara du Jour

Holiday party season continues, as does my love affair with 1950s fashion. It truly is my favourite decade for feminine style, followed closely by the 1940s. That’s why I combined a 1940s Rita Hayworth-inspired hairstyle with a 1950s Marilyn Monroe-inspired little red dress for this glamourous evening look. (more…)

Retro 1950s Christmas Party Outfit

Retro 1950s Christmas Party Outfit | Sara du Jour

*Gasp!* An outfit post! I know, it’s been a minute. But every time I do a poll asking which of my blog post types is your favourite, outfit posts seem to come out on top, so I’m doing my best to oblige. Anyway, I recently hosted a Christmas cocktail party at my apartment for some friends from the office, and since I was going all Stepford-y with the food and drinks I prepared (stay tuned for that post), I figured I’d do the same with my outfit of the evening.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s Halloween Costume

Audrey Hepburn (Holly Golightly) Breakfast at Tiffany's Halloween Costume | Sara du Jour
Halloween is one of the holidays I look forward to most each year. While many people like to embrace all things spooky and dark, I pretty much just love the excuse to dress up as one of my favourite characters. So, maybe that’s not quite the essence of Halloween, but… (more…)

A 1920s Gatsby Christmas Party

1920s Gatsby Costume Party | Sara du Jour
The Roaring Twenties. The Prohibition Era. The Jazz Age. This year, our office Christmas party was 1920s-themed. The invitations were delivered, beautifully designed in Art Deco style. The gentlemen and ladies were instructed to pick an alias and “dress to kill” – we were going to a speakeasy. There would be an open bar, catered food, a casino, and dancing. What better way is there to end the year? (more…)

Lara Croft Tomb Raider Halloween Costume / Cosplay

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Halloween Costume | Sara du Jour

Last year, at Halloween, I dressed up as Disney’s Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, and Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The year before, I went as Hermione Granger. This year, I continued my trend of dressing up as my favourite fictional females, and went as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider from the video games and films. (more…)

This past weekend I attended a very special party. A masquerade! And as if that weren’t cool enough – a murder mystery masquerade! It was an exciting and surprise-filled night, but before I get into all of that, why don’t you come and get ready with me? (more…)

I was going through the photos on my memory card and discovered a whole slew of things I had forgotten to blog about.

OOTD: My 22nd Birthday Party

I’m still twenty-one! For… two more days. Since my birthday falls on a Tuesday this year, I threw my 22nd birthday party this past Saturday night. (I’ll blog about the actual party later, this is just the style post.)

I wore a slinky emerald green dress you might recognize from my recent Haul-iday Party Dresses post and simple black heels. (more…)
