Salted Caramel

October is finally here! Among the usual oversize-sweatered hands carrying PSLs and scrolling through caramel-coloured Pinterest boards, there is that all too familiar dressing woe; how does one prepare for morning’s Arctic temperatures, but also survive the afternoon’s blazing heat? Layering is definitely key, but I won’t lie to you; you’ll have to brave the brief morning chill in order… Read more »

preppy polka dots

You know that one dress you own that puts a smile on your face every time you wear it? Well, this one’s mine. Zara is great for a number of reasons, one of them being their stellar collections of evening, every day and  date-night dresses. I have a real soft spot for girly things that… Read more »

Leather Legs

Consider this look the warmer cousin of the lampshading trend I wrote about last week; I call this one the leather legs look. Winter is officially here, never-ending snowfalls and all. Now is not the time to admit defeat and stow away all your dresses and skirts for the warmer months, but instead opt for over… Read more »

Lampshading

Lampshading; heard of it? Maybe not, but you’ve probably seen it here. Celebs have been donning their over the knee boots and oversized Yeezy sweaters everywhere lately and I’m kind of digging it. Oddly enough I can’t find sweaters long enough to pass as dresses for my 5’3ish frame, but I do own my fair… Read more »

Gone Tanning

Not tanning tanning obviously, I mean…have you seen this weather? I’m talking about tan accessories, like this steal-of-a-deal, camel-coloured Zara messenger bag.  It’s easy to start feeling a little drab this time of year; nature is literally dying (like the trees and leaves and stuff), it’s too frigid outside to carry your Starbucks to-go cup without your… Read more »

Black and Blue

No, no, no, not bruises, but colour combos! Remember the old myth that claimed you should never, under any circumstances, mix the colours black and blue in your ensemble? Well I’m here to disprove that dated legend, or at least make a strong visual case in favour of pairing these two rich winter hues together. Even though I’m not a big Game… Read more »

Shades of Grey

Baby it’s cold outside. Finally! I know I’m pretty hot and cold about Montreal weather, but I love a good excuse to start layering up in any and all shades of grey. Not just any old grey stuff though, but wool. From skirts to sweaters and tailored trench jackets, wool is the only way to… Read more »

Mixing and Matching

Though it may not be for everyone, I’m someone who loves playing with different shapes and patterns in clothing, and sometimes like to mix a little bit of both for some extra pizzaz (I will take any excuse to use that word). When I picked up this printed skirt from Zara, I played by the… Read more »

Splurge vs Save; Chloé ‘Marcie’ Bag

I love a beautiful designer bag as much as the next girl, but I also love to eat, pay my rent and you know, live debt-free. I definitely believe in splurging for those one-of-a-kind designer pieces, but sometimes saving is the way to go when fast fashion stores are basically selling its twin. I was… Read more »

All White Everything

What’s that rule about not wearing white after Labour Day? Yeah, screw that. All white everything is the way to go when you want to look like a total, effortless badass; hell yeah I can wear this all day and not spill anything on it (I hope). Not only does an all-white ensemble make a… Read more »
