The Thing About Stripes

Red, black, white, thick, thin- doesn’t matter. Stripes and basic tops have had the longest standing relationship in fashion. Seen basically every season in every which possible way.  Although I lean more towards vertical stripes due to the elongating factor- I don’t discriminate. I love both. It can look nautical, classic, sporty, totally 60’s or…

Grown-Up Romper

Since it’s Friday and all, let’s avoid trying to figure out what to wear, and if that blouse matches that jean, or that skirt goes with that blouse and throw on the answer.  Most rompers that I’ve seen on the market, are pretty young.  Floral, soft, festival attire.  Imagine my surprise when I saw this…

Summer Days

Funny how such a small change can make such a big difference. How you wear your hair can be so important in first impressions and in conveying how you’re feeling.  Your hair is the ultimate accessory and really an extension of you. Very few of us are not emotionally connected to our hair. Of course,…

I Walk The Line

Enter the bodysuit. The perfect way to avoid plumbers butt, achieve the perfect “tuck” and appease your inner gymnast.   I fell for it in the 90’s and am falling for it all over again. And while I’m at it, lets throw in the ripped jeans and a Nirvana-esque oversized plaid shirt. Back to the…

Dare to Bare

Guess I better bump my push-up game up at the gym. Off-the shoulder tops and dresses are everywhere and there is something undeniably sexy about baring your shoulders.  The trend has been adapted from bridal down to casual wear, so you will be seeing it everywhere.  It’s also been on the fall runways, so it…

The Wire

The Wire is one of my favourite songs from Haim’s Days Are Gone album. I had the awesome opportunity to attend a special H&M hosted event where Haim guest DJ’d for the night.  Naturally since it’s was held in an H&M store, I had to do a little shopping. I picked up this boyfriend fit, super soft…

Killin’ It

Drop it like its hot.  Your armhole that it.  These tops are EVERYWHERE, side boob is the new cleavage, which works out well for a girl like me. Although never ever in my life would I have thought I would: wear a drop armhole top. wear a bandeau. Well, never say never I guess. I…

In Chains

  What happens when you visit your parents for the weekend? Well, other than gaining 10 lbs and getting 50 mesquitoe bites….you score some big finds in your wardrobe if you have my mom. It went a little like this: Mom ” I have this belt someone gave me, don’t know what it is…I think…

Introducing…Stan Smith

Originally created in 1973 for tennis star Stan Smith, this quickly has become a cult favorite and collectible.   Adidas has been slowing down the roll-out of these beauts making them that much more cultivated and hard to find. I’ve been in search for it for a few months now, and finally found my size!! Needless…

Day to Night

I’m living my dream job of being a fashion buyer. My office is trendy, fun and best of all seeing what all my co-workers wear everyday acts as a total inspiration. When I have dinner/drink plans at night, I always try to think of a way to wear the same outfit during the day and…

Grunge Appeal

“Grunge is nothing more than the way we dress when we have no money,” the designer Jean Paul Gaultier toldVogue in 1993, the year fashion co-opted the look. Acid wash jeans, flannel shirts, this was more utilitarian then anything, until Sonic Youth and Nirvana hit the scene. Cut to 2014- when the 90’s and grunge is having a comeback.…

Boho Blouse

Loose peasant top, ripped jeans and flats. Love this outfit. The boho look is my comfort zone. Always has been. Picked up this peasant top while in Niagara and I love the old fashioned, romantic, feminine look without compromising sex appeal.   It’s perfect for the hot weather (thank God) that we’ve been having lately.…

Like a Dream

I really just have the best boyfriend in the world.  After a few days of pampering at a spa- we spent some time at the lake, relaxing and zoning out completely.  The weather was perfect, and although it was only for 3 days it was exactly what I needed. It’s that time of the season,…

Vineyard Wedding

      I had the most wonderful weekend.  Went to a beautiful wedding party at a private vineyard in Niagra Falls.  However, I did struggle with what to wear.  It was outdoors, it was described as casual, but no jeans and it was during the day.  Still, so many questions….do I wear flats? Can…
