Playful Plaid

IMG_5071Last month I ran a special 7-day long Fall Double Feature collaboration series with Style Cassentials, where we explored and put our own twists on upcoming trends for Fall.

One of the big trends this season is being Mad for Plaid!  Today I’m taking a more playful approach to plaid 🙂

Proofs-05There has been a sudden spike in Toronto temperatures lately,  which means getting into full on Fall garb on 20+ degree days, just doesn’t make sense.  So for today’s outfit of the day I decided to wear a sheer plaid shirt, with leggings for an easy, casual look.

Proofs-06Typically early mornings and evenings tend to be cooler – quick.  So in an effort to combat the sudden dips in temps … this light jean jacket and wooly wonderful-ness of this infinity scarf are perfect solutions! 🙂

Proofs-09How I Got The Look:

Jean jacket from Old Navy; Thick wool infinity scarf from Aldo Accessories; Black n’ white sheer plaid shirt from Reitmans; Leather calf leggings from Forever21+; Large cream Coach bag; Beige + sea foam toed heels from The Hudson Bay Co.; jewelled studded flats from Payless; extra thick infinity scarf from Aldo; and vintage bracelets from Spring’s Toronto Vintage Clothing Show

 

Proofs-08What do you think of this look? How would you  incorporate plaid into your Fall looks?  Use the Comments section and tell me your thoughts!

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 can’t do?R2-D2-8

He’s a projector, a Swiss Army Knife and tolerator of 3PO, all rolled into one. I don’t even mind that he’s gotten too CG in the prequels, when R2 dropped oil slick on some battle droids and ignited them with his personal jet boosters – he’s a rockstar and can do no wrong.  He helped the Rebels topple the Empire, was X-Wing wingman to Luke and to C-3P0’s Riggs, and then stuck around to help the new Republic grow and prosper. R2-D2 is nothing but cool and reliable.

Any droid that can survive getting spit out by some Dagobah sea whale thing is worthy of winning my heart!

 

In an effort to celebrate May 4th – Star Wars Day – I’m dedicating this post to the awesome fun geeky fashions out there that I’d totally rock for realz (if I could find them)… paying homage to this fab sci-fi cultural phenomenon that is STAR WARS.
