Major Laser

I just received this raaad laser cut top from Female Department, a brand-new online shop from Montreal that donates a percentage of their profit to a different social causes all dedicated to female empowerment. Laser cutting is one of those many things that make me happy I live in the 21st century (like Tinder and Photoshop). It really is quite an amazing merger of fashion and technology. Ok…I’m being dramatic, sorry. But it is pretty cool, no?

Saturday Essentials

saturday-details copy

Saturday is my day to catch up on everything I should have gotten done throughout the week. Being comfy is a top priority – while I’m a 7-days-a-week track pant enthusiast and not shy to wear them Monday to Friday, I’m 100% wearing them on weekends at home and while running errands. This cute embellished pair are by Love Zooey, a great brand from L.A. I got them at a sample sale and wear them often. Light tees are obviously a staple, and I’m pretty obsessed with the slip on sneaker at the current moment. Awesome for shopping and trying on shoes because just like the name suggests, you can *literally* slip them on and off. Can’t forget the lime water for vitamin C filled hydration. Sometimes I’ll put a shot of liquid chlorophyll for an added boost of detoxification + iron.

Lust List: April 2013


I know I know…an excess of black and gold. Kind of misrepresentative of the crisp white, pastel blue and silver colour palette that’s been on my mind in wardrobe terms. With the current “après winter” state my skin is in, the Rodin Olio Lusso body oil is something I really want to get into again. I was using body oil rather than lotion for a while and really liked the feel of it, especially on tired, moisture sapped skin. This one has all natural oils including jojoba seed, jasmine, and sweet almond (+sleek packaging). The PS11 tiny is seriously being contemplated as a grad gift…I’m just on the fence about the marble knobs. (Too trendy?) And as for the lipstick, I’m currently on the hunt for a lip colour reminiscent of what was on some of the models at Prabal Gurung SS’14 – a matte, pinky-purple lilac pastel. I have this vision of wearing it with all white and slicked back hair…UGH, I can’t get it out of my head. If anyone has any recommendations on a good colour like that please let me know!

Black & Blue x2

colour-block-shirt copy


I’ve made my love for black and blue apparent before. So obviously when I spotted this sweatshirt I was instantly attracted. Kinda Neil Barrett-ish, and very effortless-chic when paired with some leather joggers. These new Zara ones I bought have zippers running up the hips, which is a perfect touch of hardware in an outfit that’s lacking. Speaking of pants, my absolute favourite below the waist situation right now (that sounded dirty) is a slightly baggy pant paired with a basic sandal. It’s sexy and cool without trying too hard – and has become my eternal bar/club ensemble because you can actually dance without having to worry about a teeny skirt riding up your butt every two seconds. Seriously girls – try it. You will thank me later.

Mood Board: White Noise


Though my sartorial agenda may scream “all black” the majority of the time (mainly because I’m messy and wearing light colours stresses me out) my love for white is certainly no secret. Clean & crisp, I am especially gravitated to it when interiors and flowers are involved. I can’t wait till it warms up so I can incorporate some #allwhiteeverything looks into my repertoire.

Tony Bianco Azura Boots

Haven’t fell this head over heels for a pair of shoes (ha!) in quite some time. Sleek, understated, yet ULTRA sexy (cutout back with dominatrix style lace-up not pictured). I’m in love. Kicking up boyfriend jeans and lending coverage to some of my shorter skirts, I know these will be on heavy, heavy rotation.

Mackage F/W 2014


Well, no shocker here…Canada’s favourite outerwear label killed it as per usual. This time around Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy showcased (to-die-for) quilted leather bombers, boucle tweed toppers, camo varsity jackets and a furry/hairy sleeved jacket I am confident I WILL get my hands on. The show’s flawless styling – with matching quilted neoprene crop tops, midi skirts and leather pants – pushed everything over the edge. So, so perfect.

While the “peacocking” that inevitably occurs outside any fashion week is undeniably entertaining, sometimes its refreshing to see something streamlined and quietly chic. That’s pretty much where I was going with my outfit for day 1 of World Mastercard Fashion Week – something kinda Phoebe Philo-esque. Parisian with en edgy twist.

Old Habits

Old habits die hard, I guess. I will forever feel my best in simple, all black outfits such as this one. Especially when the outfit includes a biker jacket. I think this quote by Yohji Yamamoto really says it all:

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – don’t bother me”.”

The Coats at Sacai…




source: Vogue

Can we just have a minute for how amazing these Sacai coats are? I haven’t had this much outerwear-lust since the Acne Mape. The Japanese designer behind them, Chitose Abe (also of diffusion brand Sacai Luck), is evidently beyond clever with her menswear-inspired overcoat, motorcycle jacket, sweater hybrids. I’m pretty obsessed. Definitely my favourite outerwear of Fall ’14 collections so far.

Side note: I’m pretty sure these are mohair-type “furs” (sheared – no animal harm) which is incredibly appealing to fashion people like myself who like the look of fur but also care about animals…but something tells me that’s real Karakul fur (a.k.a baby lambs) on a couple of them. Boo.
