On Shopping While Petite

Full disclosure: This is a rant. You have been warned. I used to love shopping. Walking in and out of stores all day, trying on clothes, falling in love with adorable things, I could do that all day. This was adorable back when my style was super teeny bopper and Forever 21 was my mecca. … Continue reading On Shopping While Petite

Things I covet – The Tibi Dress

  Tibi Floral Gothic Dress So, I went to Nordstrom. After months of having the store literally next door to me in Toronto, I finally found the time to stroll in this weekend and take a look. And. I. Loved it! I fell in love with a colossal mannequin they had on display by the … Continue reading Things I covet – The Tibi Dress

On Borrowing Fashion

I love my fashion old. Whether I'm digging furiously through thrift store racks for the coolest finds, or watching an old movie on Turner Classic/Netflix, old fashion is my fashion of choice. There's so much inspiration to be gleaned from all the decades past -except the 2000's, let's never do that again please? In any … Continue reading On Borrowing Fashion

On why you should curate your wardrobe.

Let me start by saying that a carefully curated wardrobe is a LOT of hassle. It really is, especially in this age of fast fashion when nothing is made to last and it is an absolute pain to find wardrobe items that won't be thrown out in a year. I mean you could, but you'd … Continue reading On why you should curate your wardrobe.

Denim on Denim (Updated)

Then I bought this fabulous denim crop top and bam, match made in heaven. I had to casually retrieve the skirt from my sister's wardrobe, seeing … Continue reading Denim on Denim (Updated)

The magic of accessorising

Great accessories are the key to a great outfit, I learned that early. Whenever I find an outfit too blah, I throw on some kickass accessories and it takes the outfit from blah, to bam. Case in point today's outfit. Casual comfy jeans and a tie crop top, pretty basic stuff. However, add some reflective … Continue reading The magic of accessorising

Unique Tunic

This is my new favourite tunic of all time (that's right, ALL time). I love it because it was crafted from a little over 1.5 yards of fabric. My late aunt happened to have bequeathed my uncle (her brother) this great fabric, and after he'd made his own outfit, he had a tiny bit of … Continue reading Unique Tunic

Style Recap

After a long hiatus, I am back home in Toronto. I'm so grateful for the adventures of the past two years, culminating in one final bungee jump of an adventure - I found my bestfriend and married the heck out of him; so yeah, it's been great. That said, I am jetlagged, I am sleepy … Continue reading Style Recap

On Grief

In my culture, when someone dies we celebrate them. We throw a party despite our grief, we dance, we feed guests, we drink, we share stories and we comfort each other. Now, this "party" depends largely on how young or old the deceased was. A 90 year old grandfather will get a party that lasts … Continue reading On Grief

Midweek Style Recap

Hello fellow caffeine lovers! I've decided that putting up a blog post every day of the week is a little ambitious. Not to mention that it discounts the fact that I have a real life, that (unfortunately) demands most of my attention. In line with this epiphany, here's a midweek style recap of all the … Continue reading Midweek Style Recap
