Big Announcements

Today's post is packed with 3 great announcements about the blog and I See Noise Prints!


I'm so pleased to announce that June's Accessory Of The Month is Clutches Of Karma! You mostly remember hearing about Pia's lovely clutches on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the blogging world of Olivia from Style Struck as she sported her fav clutch in her outfit posts.

Pia is giving away a reserved VIP 20% off discount on the entire Skins Collection as it arrives in stock - they're a hot item! The first 50 people to purchase an I See Noise print in June will receive the VIP discount, and they go fast!

As some of you know the blog is undergoing a re-design and will launch for tomorrow June 1st. Today is the last you'll see of this design and changing with the design is the site address!
Tomorrow you will be directed to the new site address when strolling over to this blog - I hope you all really like it!
To celebrate the launch of the new blog myself and designer Lindsay Walsh from Standing Armed will be giving away a goooorgeous dress from her Fall / Winter 2011 collection!! I am such a big fan of Standing Armed and have blogged about it HERE & HERE. This will be one giveaway you're going to want to get your friends to enter in for you!

Jewelry Must Haves

During a late night finger stroll through the Etsy jewelry categories I found myself struck with delight at all the lovely pieces I found that I haven't seen in any stores here in Vancouver. Etsy is so great for items like these, if you haven't searched for accessories and jewelery on it you must do it soon! Here are a few items that I have on my radar and will most likely be purchasing soon - and ones you can add to your lists or shopping carts!

Lucky Seven Necklace by Mossie & Bee - Designer Clare has been so kind that she is giving all of you a 10% off discount on her entire shop until June 2! Type is 10PERCENT during checkout to receive your discount.

Shopping Finds - Items that pop!

The past week has brought on some great shopping finds and I couldn't be happier with them! Eric and I stumbled upon a garage sale on Sunday morning and I was shocked to see that they had ONE nightstand which was the matching partner to the set I own and the last piece I needed - and yes, $7!!! Poifect :)

Here are a few outfit & beauty additions I've added to the collection!

H&M Denim Vest - I wore this with 2 outfits on back to back days, it's very versatile. I wore it as seen in the outfit photo above with a floral sun dress and the night prior out for drinks with black denim, a grey silk tank and the fuchsia pumps.

Aldo Pumps - LOVE LOVE LOVE! My first pair of pink pumps and they're crazy comfy. Aldo is having 25% off sale items so these beauties were a great deal.

H&M Black ball cap - I always lust over the outfits paired with the ball cap on 5 Inch And Up and thought it was time to sport these outfits myself.

I stopped by the Portobello West Market on Sunday afternoon and was so happy I did! I caught up with the lovely ladies from Clutch Jewels and Keltie Leanne Designs and discovered Foe & Dear.
A jewelry line made by Katherine Huie with a mix of vintage and new. I was stopped in my tracks when I saw this skull necklace and possessed it as my own. I look forward to my next Foe & Dear purchase!

I'm very picky with chain bracelets and have been on the search for a basic thick chain to pair with smaller ones, a gold watch or a few bangles. Lindsey from LinzGutz was so nice to gift me one and I can't wait to wear it everywhere, all the time!

Tara (Eric's sister) graced me with a belated birthday present from the wondrous counters of Chanel! I've never tried Chanel nail polish before but something tells me I'll be hooked. I'm super curious about their cream based eyeshadow - I will definitely be reporting back!

Remembering The Details

This is one of the few attempts I make to mix patterns. As soon as I saw the ASOS over sized retro sunnies I knew this was going to be an interesting outfit. That's typically how it goes, one item will set off the entire look I put together. This also goes in real life.
I feel that the sunglasses tortoise print goes well with the Topshop joggers simply because the toned down hues. Yes, the prints are LOUD. However the colors are not. They are separated and neutralized with the cream scalloped jacket (always remember the details) and the satin grey cami (always remember the details).

Bring out the black in the pants with the bag, pumps and accessory and it all ties together! Did you also notice the gold tones tied together with the watch and sunglasses? DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS!

Color Of The Week: Sodalite Blue

This week's featured color from the Pantone Spring Color Trend Report 2012 is "Sodalite Blue" designed by Barbara Tfank.

The inspiration behind this hue: "The early films of Elizabeth Taylor who has always been an enormous inspiration to me — I wanted to offer a tribute to her".

Anytime I see a deep blue such as this shade I think of one word - Regal. Much like the inspiration behind this color of Elizabeth Taylor I too find it to be chic, classy and bold. Although it is a bold color it can easily be substituted for a neutral. Instead of khaki or black pants sub it for this deep blue with a color top or black and white.

If your outfit of the day is simple and needs a splash however you don't feel like having that vibrant hue, this shade is perfect for a ribbon in the hair, nail color or the color in your shoes!

Lastly, a great aspect of this color is that it works all year during all seasons!

Shopping Finds - Home Decor & A New Basic

In early April I purchased a liquor tray from Lofty Living in New Westminster - it was posted in the Shopping Finds post at the time. I've decided to not display liquor bottles on it but leave it with crystals and drink accessories! The paper straws are from Etsy and all of the crystal is from my parents old collection.

As seen in yesterday's post, Eric and I hit up a few garage sales over the weekend and I got some great items! Click HERE to see the furniture and lamps I got for only $15! Eric managed to get a 1960s piece of furniture himself for only $10!

Lately I've been collecting small glass tea light holders. They're so beautiful and detailed and add a special touch to my place. They can also be used for many others things such as jewelry pots, and holders for office supplies. At the same garage sale I nabbed this one for only $0.80!

The first garage sale we got to had half a garage full of candles from the Woodward's department store and apparently when we got there at 11am more than half of them were already sold! I got 2 sets of 6 white candle sticks for $0.10 each - a deal unheard of these days.

Crossing off an item on my 5 Items post I got a pair of skinny white trousers from Zara. They hit right below the ankle bone to not allow too much bunching at the bottom. They create a longer leg and will be perfect for this season. I just have to be careful, I'm notorious for ruining white items before I head out the door!

Home Decor Project Phase 1: The Inspiration

Last Saturday was a lovely day in Vancouver - it was our last day of sun and shine before the long weekend brought us rainy days and clouds. Eric and I spent it doing what we like to do during the Spring / Summer seasons - garage sale hopping! After a yummy home made breakfast we perused Cragislist for local Vancouver garage sales and hit up as many as we could!

On our last stop we hit the jackpot! They needed to get rid of everything and price wasn't an issue. I found these 2 beautiful lamps (minus the colors) for only $5 for the set and the table was $10! This will be a great project to occupy myself with in the next week.

Below is inspiration for what I plan to redesign them as. I'm thinking white lamp shades, gold becomes white, orange and tan becomes mint. The table will either be completely white or two tone! Stay tuned in the next 2 weeks for the final result. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear what they are!

5 Items

Happy Monday!

A new segment to the blog has been added titled "5 Items". Each week I will post the 5 items that I am currently coveting that create a complete outfit! I hope you enjoy my first one - I've checked one item off the list and am on the hunt for the other 4!

Also, June 1st is a big day for The-Unprecedented! There are 2 surprises that I can't wait to show you and one you will definitely want to take a part in!

Zara Ankle Strap Sandals - Perfect for pairing with skinny pants of any kind; denim, trousers & cropped. The metallic shine can be that detail I need in my outfit without going overboard!

CĂ©line Goyard Tote - I tend to take my entire life with me when I leave the house so it's obvious that I would use a large bag! In fact, I don't even own a tote - this one would be perfect!
Zara Slim Fit Denim - I just recently purchased these and as someone who hasn't owned a pair of white pants before (even though I recommend it to everyone!) it has opened a whole array of outfits for myself especially for the Spring/ Summer season. They have great stretch and hit just below my ankle bone to create a sleek look!
J. Crew Trace Link Bracelet - I love all gold accessories and am on the hunt for the perfect gold chain link bracelet! I feel in love with this one and feel like it would be perfect on its own or stacked with single thin chains.

Club Monaco Sunny Tee - Nothing is more perfect than a soft loose fitting basic tee. It doesn't have to be boring and worn with something over top but can be jazzed up with a statement necklace and even worn out to dinner!

In The Nude

As you know I've been a big fan of color this year and have introduced it into my wardrobe over and over again. One item that I tend to always pair the color with is a nude palette. I find that neutrals, tans and nudes allow the colors to pop and don't make an overwhelming look altogether. You can also add more than 1 color to an outfit without going overboard. Take the below look for example. With a yellow being a loud and prominent color you can add a pink or red with your lipstick or nail polish!

How do you pair your colors in your outfits? Let me know in the comment section!
