ALEXIS Magazine finally arrived!

So far I've been featured now in 4 issues of this magazine I believe, but the first hard copy finally arrived to me recently!

I really love how their magazine is set up. It's really cute, and also has a lot of interesting articles!!

This photo is so old! It was from when I went and stayed in a pretty house along the Rouge River with my boyfriend & parents this past summer! I can't wait for it to be this warm again!! Also I'm showing my face for once! What a rarity, haha. (I kinda look like an alien in this photo too, lol)

If you like the magazine, you can always check them out here!!

PS: Sorry for the lack of original outfits lately! It's been raining a TON and spitting snow (and not the pretty kind, just the crappy kind), and on top of that I've been doing pretty terrible after getting my wisdom teeth out just recently. (Anyone else had theirs out before? Doesn't it SUCK?!) So once this storm is over, please be expecting many many more new outfits from me!

bye for now, lovlies

Bad Moon Rising

I was really excited to wear my moon tunic dress from Your Eyes Lie for the first time! I'm really weird and superstitious about full moons, so having a crescent moon on my chest makes me feel a little bit better! (The moon on my shirt is actually about as full as the moon is in the sky right now, oddly enough!)

I do always love shots like this!

I am OBSESSED with the feather hairclip I got from Shop Lately! I got two of them! I'm actually wearing the feather clip, and a feather headband alongside each other. The feather waistband is from my friend Salla in Finland!!

There was a man from Gallifrey

Ten points if you know where my title is taken from!

I'm seriously in love with this top from Romwe! It has such a school girl-ish charm to it, don't you think?

My mom let me borrow some flowers for these photos! I love pink roses!

It was a bit windy yesterday, I think a storm is coming!

My litas, as usual! I dread the day when I wear them out.

Byebye for now, lovlies xoxo

Rode through the desert on a horse with no name

Sometimes I look through my folder with all my pictures, and I realize there's entire sets of photos I forgot to upload to my blog! Silly me.

I really like the combination of the skirt, vest, and belt. The vest is sometimes hard to coordinate!!

Designer feature: Yigal Azrouël

Today I would like to share with you some of my favourite designs from the mind of Yigal Azrouël, an NYC based fashion designer.

I love this item in particular for two reasons: One, it's lambskin, so it's built to last. Secondly, it's versatile! Not only is it a jacket, but the sleeves can be removed to create a vest, for a whole different feel and look! Whenever you can, purchase things that have more than one function--this way, you're always getting the best of both worlds!

Always with a modern freshness, Yigal's "Pastiche Scarf" draws my attention more than any other garment in his ready to wear collection currently. As if the opposite colours are not bold enough, the pattern itself steals your eye away! (I'd love to own this scarf!!)

He is is well known for his feminine designs, and simply stellar draping abilities! (Just look at how delicately this Cashmere Knit top lays, it's wonderful and girly, yet bold and modern!)

Yigal Azrouël garments come highly recommended by me, so check out his website if you get the chance, they're seriously stellar!!

xoxo, ashlei louise

The eagle & the feather

I love this charity shop coat, as always. Goodwill is awesome!

This is one of my favourite pictures Josh has taken of me, recently!

He also found me this awesome shirt! I love it!

Two of my best friends came to visit and stay at our house, so there was LOTS of going out and eating.

Delicious sushi! (Which I am too pick to eat, so I always just eat "tamago"!)

Another shop dog! I keep seeing them, recently. I love it when stores have animal mascots!

A bike from the shop with the dog--doesn't it look like a watermelon because of the colours?!

Eating out again! This time at a really popular local pizza place.

My friend bought us pizza! Thank you, Uncle David, haha!

shirt- charity shop
shorts- forever 21

LookBook is for Lovers // I am her flower & she is my sun

My friend Courtney & I entered the "couples" contest on LookBook!!
Her entry is here, and mine is here!
This contest is won via how many "hearts" we both get on LookBook. So if you want us to win, please "hype" and "heart" our looks on LookBook! (There will be a SPECIAL SURPRISE for those of you that heart either of our looks!)

Courtney is the first person that I don't know in real life on LookBook who really started to talk to me frequently. I've been a member of many forums online over the course of my life, but when it comes to LookBook sometimes it seems...a bit quiet, to me. So many wonderful people and wonderful comments, but even after months of being on LookBook I felt like I'd never found a real friend. Courtney and I started talking one day over the LookBook messaging system sometime last year, and since then we talk nearly everday! I can't imagine not having her to talk to about clothes, personal matters, and just life. It's nice to find someone who really listens to you, and isn't just waiting for their turn to talk. She means so much to me!

I love this ivy wall!

Hype and heart me (or Courtney!) if you like our looks!

Courtney's look is so pretty!!
Hype and heart her!
