I’m Batman!

How cute is this tee?? For a quick and easy Sunday Brunch outfit of the day, I paired this fantastic baby BATMAN tee (Ardene) with a simple cotton black pencil skirt (Old Navy) and these plaid loafers (Payless).  No jewellery, just my white ceramic Michael Kors watch. I’ll be honest with you… I was uber…

Cross-Border Shopping Extravaganza

After the Victorian Tea event at Your Big Sister’s Closet last month, I met a delightful lady with whom an instant friendship was born.  Turns out this chick, Annika Reid is the chief designer and owner of Candi Apple Couture (who was soon to be launching into the bloggosphere)  struggles with finding affordable bra options in Toronto.…

OOTD: Sea Foam Swirls

I have to admit, this past weekend with the release of Orange is the New Black season 2 on Netflix, I’ve been anti-social… or rather ‘selectively social’.  In my defence I haven’t been feeling in tip top shape …and what better way to regain ones umph than by marathoning episodes of a fantastic show like…

Tribal Kimono

Toronto got its first glimpse of summer weather this weekend friends! Happy to say I got to enjoy a patio or two …hope you did too.

OOTD: Rainy Day Alternative

It’s a full week of rain in Toronto … and although I’ll happily take it over snow, I’m always looking for alternatives so I can avoid carrying around a giant umbrella to get from A to B in the city. I have the best pair of galoshes!!! These pink paisley rubber boots basically screamed “Irene”…

Spring Weekend: Shawl + Hat

It finally happened!  Toronto got an actual SPRING weather weekend!   Hooray! So this Sunday I ditched my winter coat for a belted shawl + hat look instead.     I was invited to a photoshoot at High Park…and was asked to wear pastel colours for makeup.  I’m not a big makeup kinda girl in the first place,…

#BoPo Art Installation

Earlier this month I blogged about my friend Karen and her hubs, Peter’s store anniversary party.  Their store, Your Big Sister’s Closet turned 1 this month and I was asked to be a window model for their Body Positivity Art Installation.  The concept was to make plus sized women more visible and to address what is not usually addressed. I…
