The Peplum Skirt

Hello friends….my apologies for being away so long from the blog. December has been a busy one – and I haven’t been very good about documenting my outfits of the day. I did however, manage to capture this one – a quick and easy combo I put together of black and navy.   I’ve been…

Keepin’ it Cozy!

I shop A LOT, I know.  But before I make a purchase,  I always try to make sure I can wear something multiple ways. If you can’t think of at least two places to wear it, don’t buy it …. is a good rule to follow, I find. Do you remember this fabulous acid pink…

Holiday Double Feature: Sparkle & Shine

We’re mid-week in our special Holiday Double Feature collaboration with Cassie of Style Cassentials. What holiday series would be complete without talking about Sparkle & Shine?  That’s exactly what we’re gonna focus on today. 🙂 There is A LOT of sequins in holiday wear this year.  Don’t get me wrong…I love me some sequins!!! But everyone else is gonna be wearing it right…

Acid Pink!

I LOVE PINK!  I’d wear it head-to-toe everyday if I could! 😛 So when I found this delightful acid pink dress among the rather drab colour pallets of 2014’s Fall Fashions at AdditionElle last month at the Stockyards Grand Opening – I was over the moon with excitement! At the time of taking these photos, the weather…

Star Wars in Fashion

I am one of those rare people who only watched the Star Wars movies  as an adult, but never as a kid.  And I’m proud to say I’ve become an instant fan – owning both sets of trilogies on blu-ray 🙂 My favourite character is R2-D2.  Is there anything this beeping trash can on wheels…

How to Wear Sequins & Shine

Sequins was a big trend this winter….and it seems to be carrying into spring.  But knowing HOW to wear sequins is a bit tricky.  So I thought I’d dedicate this post to just that! I personally own 5 sequins/shiny items: Copper/silver  chain purse (Aldo)    Black pumps (Guess) Copper/Gold tank-top (INC, Hudson Bay Co.) Gold…

Girls Night Out + Spa Day

With Valentine’s taking place over Toronto’s first long weekend since Xmas holidays –  I’ve allowed myself a few extra days off work to just enjoy being single in the city. My plan was to combine lots of ME time with at least one day of complete indulgence at a Spa + a fab dinner + good wine,…

Quest for Silver Shoes…

I’m going to be a Bridesmaid for a gfs wedding at the end of this month… at the Bride’s request we the Bridesmaids need to find ourselves silver shoes. For those of you who know me – I love me some shoes!!!  ❤  But to my surprise, among my current collection zero silver options existed. The…
