OOTD: Are Skulls Still a Thing…?

I’m all for changing with the trends and even being a trendsetter, but I’m also one of those people who continue wearing something “out of fashion” if I still find ways to make them look fashionable!

The craze over skulls has definitely diminished, but the skull detailed scarf I wore last night is still one of my favourites and I have NO problem wearing it!

Here’s my look for yesterday,

I kept the look casual for the occasion but used yellow for a pop of colour! Rolled up my old jeans and throw on my converses for an extremely comfortable but fashion forward look! What do you guys think??

OOTD: Hello Spring!

Warm weather is finally here and I couldn’t be happier. The dreadfully long winter here in Toronto has come to an end and it’s beginning to feel a lot like spring.

Last weekend I switched between seasonal wardrobes (never enough closet space for everything all year long) and dug up my spring/summer clothes. Needless to say, I NEED to go shopping for a few key essential pieces to add to my closet for this season but I’m so glad to finally be wearing bright colours, like I did yesterday. Check it out…

IMG_9171If you haven’t put two and two together, I love colour-blocking and gold accents! The whole green and pink combo might just be one of my favourites, I feel like they always look so classy together.

And maybe I haven’t gotten the memo about whether gold chain necklaces are in or out, but as long as I can find a chic outfit that works with it, I will continue wearing them; I love how quickly a thick gold chained necklace heightens a look overall.

OOTD: Chic and Proper

Sometimes it’s nice to forget the current “trends” and just wear something that speaks to you. While the craze for sportswear is continuously growing in the fashion world, I’ve decided to give it a rest for a bit and get back to some basics.

The important thing to remember with an outfit like this, is to focus on the details. I added some great silver rings and earrings to complete the look.

Nothing welcomes Spring better than a great blazer and a nude hand-bag. Keeping in tuned with the current popular colour we’ve been seeing on the runways of Toronto Fashion Week, I finished the look off with great pink flats.

Pearls on a School Night

Fellow fashionistas.. if you haven’t been into your local Zara please do so now!! They’re having their semi-annual sale and everything is selling quick. When I saw this pearl accented sweater, with great button detailing down the back I fell in love instantly.

IMG_8703

I paired the sweater with classic black tights (also from Zara) and these Franco Sarto heeled boots. I also kept all jewellery simple, trying to keep the focus on the pearl necklace lining.

Nothing better than looking and feeling great when you’re stuck at school for three hours on a Tuesday night.

Till next time,

OOTD: Houndstooth and Mustard Yellow

Nothing beats the feeling of taking off the tags on a new purchase and wearing it for the first time. I got the chance to do that twice with today’s outfit.

I’ve always loved the preppy look  of houndstooth print and how beautifully chic the mustard yellow cardigan makes the entire outfit look. And even though Pantone named radiant orchid as colour of the year for 2014, I’d still pick this cardigan from Banana Republic to compliment this look.

Thanks to the gold-buttons on the cardigan and gold buckets on my boots, this look didn’t need much accessories.. so I kept it simple and just threw on my big chain necklace from Aldo.

New Years’ Shopping Guide

Have you left everything to the last minute again? NYE is just around the corner and maybe you haven’t even started shopping for your night out in the city. Stress no more, this shopping guide is your one stop check list for everything you’ll need!!

1) The Outfit 

Deciding what to wear for New Years can be tricky, but it shouldn’t be. Figure out what you’ll be doing and this will be easier. If you’re going to a club or party, keep in mind that you should take advantage of the occasion and dress up a little.

dresses

These two dresses are great examples of what you could wear. The one on the left has amazing gold lace detailing and won’t need much work to get you ready for your night out. The one on the right is an all black sequin dress.. and you can’t go wrong with sequins on New Year’s. The only thing I would change about the black look is the tights, I’d pick a sheer black rather than the jet black the model is wearing. Both these dresses are from Le Chateau and can be bought on their website or in stores.

2) The Clutch

Let’s face it, NYE can get sloppy sometimes and we tend to get a little forgetful as the night goes on. Having a perfect clutch that will hold all your precious belongings is essential. If you’re wearing a solid colour from head to toe, pick out a clutch with some glitter, it will definitely spice up your look. The most important thing to remember when shopping for a clutch for New Year’s is to pick one out that has a crossover chain, so you don’t leave it sitting on a table somewhere. The one below is from Aldo, which has some amazing clutches in stores now!

3) The Lipstick

This one is easy, pick a great lipstick to throw in your clutch. Go for that bold red you’re usually afraid of wearing or that dark purple you wouldn’t dare to wear to work. It’s NYE and no one will be able to judge your choice in colour!

4) The Shoes

Maybe the most important of them all… what to wear on your feet! NYE is a LONG night, but if you’re like me, heels are the only answer. I’ve never been a fan of carrying a pair of flats in my purse and changing into them half way through the night either. Pick a comfortable heel from the start. If you’re living in a city that is covered in snow right now, it might work to your advantage. Try finding a heeled bootie that usually has a thicker (more comfortable) heel! But if you have a pair of heels you’re dying to wear that you bought 3 months ago and haven’t had to chance to wear yet, then check out my older post, Easy Steps to Painless Heels.

Holmés Birkin

We’ve seen it everywhere… classic logos being mimicked and slapped on a t-shirt. This one by trdmrk is no different.

This recreation of the iconic Hermés logo, especially the use of the company’s signature orange colour was impossible to turn down! I kept the look simple for the occasion by wearing a pair of Levis jeans and bringing out my authentic birkin bag.
