The Problem With People Saying There is a Problem with Girlboss Feminism

I just finished binge-watching the 13-episode-long Netflix series, Girlboss, which claims to loosely follow the ups and downs of Nasty Gal’s entrepreneur Sophia Amoruso on her journey into the business of thrifting and online shopping. I loved it for a number of reasons, many of which are attributed to Britt Robertson’s spunky, take-no-bullshit attitude and the… Read more »

The Patriarchy Wears Pink: Taking on the Hidden Tax

Who doesn’t love some personal pampering? From deodorant to shampoo and scented soaps, hygiene is an important daily ritual for many men and women; so, why should the latter be paying a reported 43% more for basic personal care items? Montrealer Aviva Maxwell pledges to answer this absurd question. The “pink tax”, a phenomenon that has been documented across… Read more »

A lil bokeh

One of my favourite things about living in the heart of Montreal is that this city is overflowing with artists: painters, style lovers, fashion creators, avid readers, creative writers, and, (one of my favourites), talented photographers. I’ve been working with Terrie for over a year now, meeting up every once in a while at some… 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 »

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 »

Borrowed from the Boys: Skinny Scarf

F*** the patriarchy, am I right? This week’s feature makes sure you can be the boss lady you are, minus a skirt or a dress; I’m talking about menswear. I love how a sharp black blazer can dress anything up, from slacks and an oxford shirt to ripped boyfriend jeans and an oversized tee. I… Read more »

Snow Bunny

Is there anything hotter – in both senses of the word – than tight leather leggings and oversized winter white wool? Chances are slim, so why take ’em? Everyone and their mother owns this pair of Aritzia leggings, and I was that girl who waited for Boxing Day sales to pick up my pair (for… 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 »

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 »
