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 »

Leather and Layers

Montreal, is that you all nice and hot?? Not sure how much longer I can sport leather legs in this warming weather, but I’m not complaining about the balmy temperatures this week! When the weather is as fickle as your study habits (it’s not just me, right guys??), layering up and down is the way… Read more »

Winter White

Is there anything bolder than fighting the greyish muck of Winter 2016 with a crisp white blazer? Whether this move is daring or just plain dumb (hellooo, slush stains!), you have to admit it makes a statement. The great thing about blazers is the endlessly versatile options for how you can wear them. I’ve been really into the shoulder… 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 »

Transitional Trench

Winter is here…! Alas, only recently. Before the overly generous snowfall a couple weeks ago, ‘winter’ was a series of ridiculously hot days and while I was enjoying the balmy weather, getting ready in the morning was always accompanied by the irritating “what do I wear?” chant playing on repeat in my head. I’ve been more than ready to… 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 »

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 »

Get Socialized

Ah, social media. Whether you crave it, despise it or are disablingly addicted to it, (and according to Odd Mom Out TA, Technology Addiction, is alive and well in the Upper East Side), you can’t escape it. I’ll be the first to admit that I spend a good amount of time on social media, but lately… Read more »

#avotoast

In a perfect world, junk food would not only taste so good, but be good for you. Unless you’re fooling yourself, this is not the case and no, I haven’t discovered some incredible solution that allows you to eat Thai Express for breakfast, lunch and dinner without repercussions to your health. (Sorry.) What I have found,… Read more »
