It’s that time of the week again; time to get your fabulous fashion fix before you head into the weekend. Every Friday Short Presents features a fashion and beauty related blog post, from inspirational outfit ideas to in-depth look at trends spotted directly on the runway. I read a lot of fashion blogs, and watch a lot of Fashion Television and I just write about when I like what I see. Today’s Fashion Friday Post is inspired by my La Quaintrelle Lace Dress

Flapper Dress Arrived!!! This dress could not have come at a better time, arriving just days before I was invited to attend a VIP party for the Head to Toe event here in Halifax for Paris a la Mode; I needed a dress and I needed it fast! I did not have time to drive to the mall, let alone try on racks of dresses.
I love this site for two reasons: I love anything that has a message behind it, and on top of that this site is vintage inspired. These pieces are both contemporary and vintage at the same time, impressive right? The white dress seen above sported by my friend, is actually vintage. She picked this up at a local yard sale here in the city; fabulous right? But you’d never know that either of these dresses were purchased separately. So what is a “quaintrelle”? you might ask.
As you know I had the hardest time trying to make a decision of which La Quaintrelle dress I wanted because really I could have gladly taken any of them. As seen here with this previous post: http://shortpresents.blogspot.com/2011/09/i-need-your-help.html
I decided to trust my instincts, and my blog readers and went with “The Flapper” dress, as seen here from the website.

Thanks so much for all your help everyone in helping me choose the right dress for the H2T event; you’re awesome, and thanks to La Quaintrelle for this fabulous dress. Also thanks you Head to Toe Halifax for a great day of Fashion and Beauty at the Cunard Centre followed by a fabulous party at Brussels. We had a lot of fun, and our taste buds did too.
