The Blues


While the outdoors may be miserable for now, the week is flying by. We are crazy busy at the office shipping out the new Spring Collection, but it's a good busy, as I seem to just blink, and the day is already over.

I made the trek down to Detroit a few weeks ago for the Prabal Gurung for Target Collection, and picked up some amazing pieces. They are so bright and colourful, I can't wait to break them out this Spring, but this lovely blue top couldn't wait. Tough & girly mix so well, and so I paired it with leather leggings to balance out the frilly-ness of the blouse.

Did you manage to get your hands on some Prabal? What were your favourite pieces?

Make it Stop


Annnnd cue snow.  Just when you thought it was safe to go outside, Toronto gets dumped on again with a slushy snow storm.   Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket after predicting this would happen in yesterday's post.  Go away snow, you are not wanted here!

On a side note, how cute is this octopus ear cuff?? Picked it up at a booth in Vegas as well, I always find the coolest things there.

A Little Bit of Red


It's finally starting to perk up here in Toronto after that blizzard we had a few weeks ago. The sun is peaking out, and most of the snow is melting away, though this leaves behind the piles of salt and garbage everywhere. I still think we're due for one last cold front before Spring can officially roll in.

Since outfits can still be tricky in this weather, let's focus on some of the details, namely, your nails. Giving yourself a mani once a week can be hard to keep up with, but it really makes such a difference to your look. I do get lazy with it at times, who doesn't, but I always feel so much better with a fresh coat of colour. This week, I went with my favorite blood red polish from Essie, Sole Mate. This colour is so killer for Fall & Winter, dark and versatile, plus goes really great with some of my edgier jewelry. I got this amazing spike ring at Pool trade show in Vegas last Winter, wish I could remember the name of the designer! It's easily one of my favs. What colour(s) are you rocking this season??

Oscars 2013: The Good & The Bad

Unless you've been living in a box, you know the Oscars happened last night, hosted by Seth Macfarlane. While it was way too long as usual, it had some great moments. Best for me was Jennifer Hudson killing it (one of my favorite epic ballads ever), and Jennifer Lawrence wiping out on the stairs. Honestly she seems so loveable and normal already, it really just endeared her even more to me. It felt like watching one of my friends haha

But, to the most important part... the gowns of course!

Two best dressed of the night for me, my very favorite being Sandra Bullock. I am just obsessed with her whole look, to the stunning black Elie Saab gown, to the amazing hairpin just adding the perfect touch. It's sexy yet classy, and so glamorous. I just love it.



More best dressed after the jump.

Snow, Snow Go Away


I don't know about you, but I am so ready for Winter to be done and over with. I hate this time of year, when all the snow turns to half-melted brown mush, and the parts that aren't covered in ice are flooded. It doesn't exactly make for pretty pictures, as you can't really go out without a huge warm coat, and looking a bit of a mess from the cold wind. Oh, Canada. So, today's outfit is from just a few weeks ago, when we had a spurt of warmth and I could actually go out sans coat. Spring, get here soon!

About Moi


Alright, finally broke the seal and got my first post up, now it's time for a little background info on me. I'm 27 years old, and living in Toronto, ON. Been in the big city for almost 6 years now, but I grew up in a small suburb of Windsor, ON. My passions include music, books, pop culture, travel, food, and of course, fashion! It's hard to sum up my style in a few words, as I am constantly influenced by what I see, and the world around me. A little bit country, a little bit rock n roll, a little bit girly, and a whole lot of leopard print!

Anywho, we've got nothing but time to learn about me, let's get to another outfit! Today and yesterday's outfits were shot back in the fall, at the bf's family cottage up in the Kawartha's. Needless to say the scenery was beautiful, and I can't wait to return!

Outfit: Top - H&M; Jacket - Zara; Pants - H&M; Boots - Forever 21; Sunglasses - Ray-Ban
