Pomegranate print romper

A while back in the summer, Bobby Raffin and I did a shoot at the CNE. You can see the first half of the shoot here… but I wanted to quickly share these photos, since it’s been unseasonably warm so far this October. I know it won’t last long, but you can’t blame me for wanting to hold onto summer. My hair– on the other hand, is fairing a lot better now without the humidity. I’m wearing a pomegranate printed romper, a floral backpack from Target and Minnetonka sandals. It’s a simple summer outfit where you throw on a one-piece, pack a cute bag and wear comfy leather sandals. It’s so much harder to get dressed in Fall, what with all the layers, varying temperatures and threat of rain, wind and even snow here in Canada. I miss the simplicity of summer dressing and the cheerful prints. The CNE is… View Full Post

It’s my birthday today…

I’m turning 22 today, and I wanted to share a quick and fun post… I’m wearing ice cream shorts from Forever 21, a vintage crochet top, Minnetonka sandals and a floral backpack from Target. All shots were taken at the CNE by Bobby Raffin. Shop the post:

#NYFW Streetstyle

At New York Fashion Week, sometimes it’s a bigger fashion show outside the tents. This is no exception at Lincoln Centre where hundreds of photographers and show attendees pulled out their most crazy and eccentric pieces in hopes of getting snapped. It’s a huge exhibition, and you can easily get lost in the crowd, unless you’re sporting dayglo neon, irridescent fabric or an eccentric hat to catch a streetstyle photog’s eye. I decided to opt out of this crazy show and wear something I thought was trendy yet still true to my own personal style. I’m wearing a simple cream coloured dress in a floral fabric, and a trendy yet practical chiffon kimono to keep me warm inside the frigid AC’d building. I accessorized with a pair of ecclectic sunglasses from a vintage store and my eye-catching iridescent heels from BCBGeneration, that seemed to have gotten photographed more than the… View Full Post

Levis x Lookbook.nu Global Style Party in Toronto

On Thursday, I went to the Levi’s x Lookbook.nu Global Style Party in Toronto at the Drake Hotel. The event was hosted by Rachel-Marie of Jag Lever and Ellie Frost who won a contest for their DIY interpretations of the classic Levi’s 501s. Drinks and sushi kept coming all night, and it was great to catch up with the Toronto bloggers and meet Rachel & Ellie. The hosts raffled off pairs of Levi jeans to lucky winners. The event is the first of a few Global Style Parties hosted by Levi’s and Lookbook. Their next stop is in NYC. Guests could bring in their 501s and have a tailor rip, distress and alter them, and then you could use stamps and studs to add a personal touch to a classic pair of jeans. I brought in a pair of Levi’s I got at Value Village for $8 and the tailor… View Full Post

See By Chloé Fragrance Launch Event in Toronto

Yesterday, I attended the See by Chloé fragrance launch in downtown Toronto. A small group of bloggers and media gathered to learn more about Chloé’s little sister fragrance. The eau de parfum was created by Michel Almairac, who also created the original Chloé fragrance. This new scent from the French fashion house is a flirty floral scent, wrapped in elegant packaging. The top notes are bergamot, with mid notes of  apple blossom and jasmine. The base for the fragrance is a classic and sensual mix of sandalwood and vanilla notes. While I’m not usually a fan of vanilla fragrances, I was surprised by how green and floral this one is. I love both bergamot and jasmine, and this scent has them perfectly balanced. What really captivates me about this fragrance is its packaging. Picking up on Chloé’s signature pleated chiffon, the bottle is multi-faceted and simplistic. It reminds me of… View Full Post
