The Canadian Tuxedo

with 4 comments

(Note: we’ve resorted to taking photos in the office. Last week was far too cold to venture outdoors.)

In terms of the winter weather we are experiencing, this Canadian tuxedo seems quite appropriate for a casual Friday Thursday. Lately, I seem to be dressing up more on Fridays than the rest of the week – being on the social media side of PR means I don’t need to meet with clients everyday, thus much more casual attire. Whether you want to celebrate our great nation, or just pretend you’re in a Madewell lookbook, this is a classic look that I can’t get away from. P.S. Everytime I wear all denim, I think of this Jersey Shore moment

My coworker gave me a lead that Winners had a great pair of flats in my size, instead however I opted for a classic black suede Nine West pump. I’ve always been pleased with any Nine West shoe I have placed on my foot, they fit true to size and more often than not, do not need breaking in.




The black jean is much more prevalent in my wardrobe, but there’s something to be said about a classic blue denim, isn’t there?

Styled: Pastel Blue

with 2 comments

Hopping on the coloured denim wagon, I recently added a pair of Zara pastel turquoise jeans to my wardrobe. I wish I had scooped up another pair, or two, because they are definitely a piece that is soon to be deemed a spring/summer go-to. Adding to my pastel blue collection I also picked up a perfect sleeveless blouse from H&M (which unfortunately is not online), this time I chose blue and black, to keep myself well-stocked.

Something about pastels is so easy, especially blue — pairing it with denim is just too simple. With many shades available in pastel hues, I’m loving the brighter Madewell lace bra below. China Glaze in Audrey fits perfectly with this colour wheel, and another great option is Zoya in Bevin, which has painted my tips all week long.

Fashion Friday Roundup

with 2 comments

If your first modeling gig is as the face of Young Versace at the age of 10, I’m pretty certain we all know what your future will entail. Not only does this fact pretty much solidify your runway reigning, but with the minor detail of having Cindy Crawford to call your mama we suppose gives you a little more street cred. Enter supermodel offspring extraordinaire, Kaia.

(fashion foie gras)

Cindy herself was a muse of Gianni, so in some ways it’s only natural that her daughtes continues this leggy legacy. Crawford was on set during the shoot with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, saying, “I’m so thrilled that Kaia was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign. I have so many fond memories of the times I spent with Gianni and Donatella. There is something so very special about the House of Versace. Being on-set with my daughter watching her in front of the camera was a fantastic experience. I am so proud of her.”


One of my new year’s goals (I opted for goals à la lululemon style, setting a date and talking in the present) is to read more, and more for me is 6 books in 2012. I’m a fairly slow reader and really need to love the book to get through every page. The first book of the year I’ve taken on is the widely acclaimed, soon to be in theatres Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I’m sure you’ve all heard about it. Well in most recent Hunger Games news, one of our fave polish brands have come out with a collection influenced by the novel. The Colours From the Capitol collectios features 12 colours, each for a district of Panem. With Katniss’ home district represented by Smoke and Ashes, symbolizing the mining district.

Dress Me Up – District 8 (textiles)                               Argo – Distrct 11 (agriculture)

Foie Gras – District 10 (livestock)                               Mahogany Magic – District 7 (lumber)

Fast Track – District 6 (transportation)                       Harvest Moon – District 9 (grain)

Hook and Line – District 4 (fishing)                             Riveting – District 3 (technology)

Stone Cold – District 2 (masonry)                               Electrify – District 5 (power)

Smoke and Ashes – District 12 (mining)                     Luxe and Lush – District 1 (luxury)


If you’re a denim hound like some people who write this blog, then you’ll be pleased to know that Madewell has got a new denim line coming to a dude ranch near you (but really just look online). Rivet & Thread is the brands most recent endeavor, that took their design team on a 2000 mile adventure to the Wild Wild West. Although we’re having a not-so-secret admiration for the overalls, an easy target are the two denim shirts. Get your blue jean fix January 24th, online or in store!
