We live an hour from one of the World’s Most Colourful Cities. (No really. Read this, for example.) Want a specific colour in the background of your photo? There’s a rowhouse for that! This past Summer and Fall, we really got inspired. Hair and all. (Note: Jana’s red hair is a washout spray. If you’ve ever dyed your hair bright red and tried to get … Continue reading Jellybean Row
A visual explanation of why we love when a new shipment drops at Model Citizens: Continue reading Spring & Summer at Model Citizens
We live in a small town. 900 people small. (We thought it was around 700 until last month when we read the town’s population printed in the local paper, haha). We’re always on the lookout for new nooks and crannies to photoshoot in, since you’re probably sick of seeing the same wall in the background over and over and over again, haha. It gets a … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 03.09.17
It feels pretty sweet when you score designer duds at thrifty prices. Which is what happened this past week, thanks to the super-duper flea market-esque sale Model Citizens had on the go.

What usually happens is whoever’s wearing the least complicated outfit is on … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 01.20.17
On very rare occasions, the stars line up and place a bunch of your favourite spots in the same immediate area. Such is the case with “the steps by the War Memorial” in downtown St. John’s. Now, don’t get us wrong, downtown is FULL of lovely places. If we both made a list of “Five Favourite Places I’ve Ever Been”, downtown St. John’s would make … Continue reading The Steps by the War Memorial
This post isn’t just for prom, either. It’s also for that dress you bought for a work holiday party–or formal night on that family cruise back in 2010–and just haven’t worn it since. Let’s be honest, here. Sequins are pretty. Maybe that’s why we find them so irresistible? (“Oooooooooooooooo sequins!!”) And maybe that’s why we think it’s such a shame to wear something so pretty … Continue reading Sequins: They’re Not Just for Prom Anymore.
