Channeling Rihanna + a GIVEAWAY!

Rihanna outfit see-through mesh body suit, Gap jeans, 424 Fifth leather hat, mini Prada bag by Vancouver style blogger Aleesha Harris of Covet and Acquire.

When I opened my mailbox the other day and saw this amazing leather hat from 424 Fifth inside I was super stoked. 

Not much of a hat person myself, I first fell hard for this sleek style during a trip to Mexico in early 2013, when I (stupidly!) passed up a version at the local tourist souvenir trap. 

I regretted not buying it pretty much as soon as I left the store. 

So imagine my surprise when, a year and a half later, my dream hat showed up in my mailbox!? (Side note: this version is unfortunately not for sale anywhere!)  

It's one of those pieces that makes me feel instantly more cool when I put it on. 
Cool enough to don boyfriend jeans and neon heels. 
Cool enough to rock a side ponytail and a (visible!) sports bra outside of my own home. 
And cool enough to channel my inner Rihanna and wear a see-through bodysuit ... well, almost. 

Maybe I will just have to stick to the jeans, hat and heels for now. :P

On another exciting note, today is the first day of my Le Chateau giveaway for a $200 giftcard! 

It's free to enter ... and there are a few ways to get more than one shot at the big prize!

And (pretty please!) don't forget to come visit me at the Le Chateau in Pacific Centre this Saturday from 1-4 p.m.
