I am excited to be collaborating with several other fabulous bloggers today to show you how to style a white dress for fall. We will also be collaborating again on September 26 to show you some fall wedding looks.

LWD in the fall

White after Labour Day

We all blog from different places and lead different lives so there is a little something for everyone! My white dress, well with a bit of black is one I’ve had for a while.  It’s the perfect summer dress but one I really wanted to transition into other seasons. Like Laura’s dress this too has  a boho vibe which I love.  I totally planned on wearing this with clack leather leggings, booties and a long black tee underneath for fall but… it is suddenly summer in Ottawa ( a little late).  Instead I went with an amazing pair of Bootie/Shoes I found at a winery this summer.

 Ruby Blues Winery

Ruby Blues Winery in Penticton opened as Ruby Tuesday Winery in 2008 and quickly became popular with visitors to the Naramata Bench as a funky, fun winery with fine wine, great rock and roll music in the vineyard and a wicked line of stiletto shoes for sale in the wine shop.

About two years later they chose to change the name to Ruby Blues Winery to avoid confusion with the U.S. based restaurant chain also called Ruby Tuesday. More to come later when I show you the vineyard but let’s get back to the shoes.

Every year the owner designs a pair of Stilettos.  Only 100 pair are made and they are only sold at Ruby Blues.  Well you didn’t think I could pass up custom footwear right? I just wish I had picked up a few others.  Limited stock but they did still have the leopard ones in my size.
