Jimmy Chew

Here is a prime example of things that I cannot comprehend within my industry. These black pumps, which in itself are ugly, have had around 500 teeth, dentures of course, implanted onto their soles. I can't even look at them without wanting to throw up.

I don't quite understand why a brand so focused on the glamorous part of life would go in this direction, but considering that I saw a girl wearing a Purina dog collar as a necklace the other day, I'm sure there's an actual market for this. Sadly...

Running for a cause.

This is the last hour of Breast Cancer Awareness month...Octoooober.. gosh where did that month go?! Anyway, at the very beginning of the month I Ran for the Cure at University of Toronto's St. George Campus.Annddd I made my 5K in 0:33:57 which was a full 2 minutes shorter than the 5K I ran for the Terry Fox run two weeks prior--2 minutes or 2 seconds its an improvement!

The experience of running for breast cancer was a great one, I pledged to raise $300, and raised $315 which to me is fantastic--I was trying to figure out how I was going to get $300 in the first place. But I did it, and next year I'm going big, get a team and everything. I really didn't realise how HUGE it was--I think there was something like 20,000 people participating, which is just insane.

So next July contact me, we're gonna go big, train hard and then paint our naked selves pink and streak through the streets of Toronto! I'm just kidding...kind of.

I think it's always good to have a cause that you work for or donate your time to, whether there's a personal link to it or not, it's good to give back.

Open to Buy

Hello, again!

Just to clarify I didn't just happen to plop the words Open to Buy down to make a catchy post header. In a buying plan, it is in short, the process of charging off committed orders against the buying limits of the planned purchases so you can determine what additional merchandise can be bought for a store. Which is basically knowing what you already bought, what money you have left over, and what you can now purchase.

An owed apology.

Hi everyone,

I come to you with my head hanging and tail between my legs. I have to say to those people who actually check my blog everyday for a new post that never seem to be there-- I  am so sorry.

Fall Off!

Wuddup Wuddup!

Oh gosh it's Fall today... can you imagine that? My brain is still trying to process how on earth it moved from the end of May to the end of Spetember...I'm having a hard time understanding that.It simply goes too fast in my opinion.

The Look: Monochrome Magic

Over the years it definitely was a pet peeve of mine when people went out of their way to match everything they're wearing-- this of course was circa puberty.

Organizational Woes: 3 Steps to Easy Packing

A few weeks ago I took a two week trip to Atlanta, and for about an hour, I sat staring at all my stuff unable to deduce how I was going to fit too much of my stuff into my too small suitcase.

The Look: Pairing Prints

I love this look. So naturally most people I came into contact with absolutely despised it, i.e. my parents and brothers. But who cares?

Covet this: 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel

I am pretty sure everyone who has followed my blog for a bit of time is painfully aware of how obsessed I am with bags-- and I couldn't tell you for the life of me why, they just move me.

This year I have fallen crazy in love with this newer shape, first on the Celine luggage (around $2650), then the Reed Krakoff (around $1100) and now the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel.

Which to me is WAY less because it is only $650. I mean in comparison its reasonable... right?

My Favourite Things

The other night as I was writing that intern post, I was sitting at my desk chugging Asti and downing macaroons-- ok lets try that again-- I was sitting at my desk, daintily sipping Asti and nibbling on some macaroons, as it occurred to me that at that moment in time I was surrounded by many of the things I am so dearly in love with.

The truth of the Matter: An Ode to Internships

In this day and age the word intern is often said with a rather acidic tone-- and for good reason I suppose. The portrayal of interns by the media is always of exhausted young people, sitting in a mail-room or high-tailing it to the nearest coffee shop.

The Satchel.

Hi all! Here's a quickie outfit of the day. I was just running errands-- I tend to dress up for the simple things too :).

Floral Freak Out

Hi everybody! Can I tell you about how hot its been here lately?? LOVESSS it! I feel like talking obsessively about the weather is a strictly Canadian trait--but I've been here a while.

Love it or Leave it: April

This is just a little bit late, I actually re-filmed it, re-filming seems to be my favourite thing to do now. The last one was 9 minutes and I cant imagine why someone would sit for 9 minutes to watch me so I made it a MUCH shorter 6 minutes-- I really did try!

Monochromatic much?

Hi all! I just wanted to share with you my very blue outfit on a very grey day! In fact the weather got so bad by the time I finished taking these photos that I'll probably change to go out, cause its just too damn cold.

Monday, April 23, 2012

Hello, there!

It is officially the unofficial start to summer-- Schools done!! Wooooooot! Yall don't even know how happy it makes me to type that.However, I am the kind of person who has a few days to do nothing and goes out of their mind with boredom. I am going crazy! I've more or less being lying on the couch since Friday night (I did shower!), watching television and eating chips.
Anyway this morning I woke up with purpose, did a zumba class and got all dressed up-- and had nowhere to go. It was actually pretty cold outside. So once again I am on my couch.

The FINAL Week

I'm sure I'm sharing the dread and excitement with every other college/university student facing finals. And I'm usually on the next level of frantic when it comes to exams-- or at least preparing for them. So I'm sad to say because of this I won't be posting until next Saturday when my finals are over :( But think of it next Saturday I'm a free woman! Woot!!
I wish all yall the best in your's as well. Prepare well and you'll be fine!

Model, Me.

Hi guys, today I'm going to be posting some photographs that have been sitting in my pc since last September-- literally no one has seen them yet!

A Dapper Image

Hello Hello. This is a suuuper quick post. I absolutely HAD to put up this photograph of my grandfather's sister and her husband, circa 1960.

Sunday, April 8, 2012


 Hey y'all! Really quick post of my outfit tonight to dinner with some friends! It was a little chilly so this was really comfy. This cardigan is soooooo warm, but it reminds me of a bathrobe a little bit, so I'm always trying to find ways to make it not look like that.

BAG it.

Last week I went on and on about accessories and how much I love them, and today I'm going to happily go on and on about bags. I can't really say there's much in fashion I don't love and/or am not a collector of.

Redefining Design

Hey everybody! I just wanted to put up some photos of a bit of the beauty I'm surrounded by everyday at school. I've posted photos of the work of the fashion merchandising students both in school and out of school before.

All the little pieces.

Great things can be done by a series of small things brought together.- Vincent Van Gogh

Details. Details. It's all in the details. At least for me. I couldn't tell you when my love of accessories began, it just did.

On the Scene: Cuisine & Couture

So last Tuesday was my first attempt at dabbling in modelling, for an event called Cuisine & Couture, which was a partnership between Rent frock Repeat and George Restaurant. It consisited of a four course dinner where in between each course the models (me!! :D ) walked through the dinner party.
This was another event I got to be part of because of my internship with Rent Frock Repeat; so all the dresses were from there, the jewelery was from this amazing boutique called Rue Pigalle, our hair was done by Blo Blow Dry Bar and our make up by Benefit Cosmetics.
  It was such a great time being around such great women, and I find I'm really blessed like that-- whether its family or friends or the people I work with it's always a bunch of women who are just so positive and ambitious that you can't help but leave with a better outlook than when you came.

Hot to Trot!

Hi everyone! Oh my goodness it is soo gorgeous outside you can't do anything but be happy for the sunshine. So we're all in shorts and dresses heading to watch football, and I decided to do this post because, yet again, I'm excited about the weather.

Behind the Scenes: Rent Frock Repeat's Spring 2012 Catalogue Shoot

Last Saturday was a long day full of steaming dresses, pulling accessories, and watching the shots of a new Spring Catalogue come together piece by piece.

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Cool & Casual.

Spring!!! That's all I have to say right now. Having 14° temperature + sunshine = short pants in March. I'm joking... more like jeans and button down, but seriously how amazing is that?!

Hooked on that Cable Knit.

Hi everyone! I can hardly believe how long its been since I last posted, it feels like its been 2 days not almost 2 weeks!  I'm sure school has all you guys the exact same way it's got me-- completely submerged with work, and miserable about it. :D

Outfit of the Day: All up in the White.

Happy Saturday everybody! I'm cannot tell you how excited I am for the weekend, just for the mere fact that I don't have to get up and trek to school ( LOL the entire 3 minute walk from residence).

Outfit of the Day: When Grunge met...Glam?

Hi hi, I wanted to share my outfit of the day--which turned into night as well-- with you. I really have no idea what I was going for with it, but i liked it enough to deem it worthy of an OOTD.

Covet This: Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2012 Shoes

I saw these and I wanted to die, yes I'm well aware that it's not a normal reaction to a pair of shoes, but these shoes are not normal. They are amazing! I cannot begin to explain my love for the loafer & metallic's, but I'm sure you can fathom that.

Style Me: Colour Block Crazy!

 It is safe to say Spring is on a Colour Block high right now. There are so many store windows over flowing with bright colours and it just warms my little heart cause i'm sick to death of seeing gray! (grey?gray? :s)

Seneca Style

Just wanted to post some of the great pieces I see on a daily at school. I must say people are so willing to let me take their picture, I'm always a little scared that someone will look at me like I'm retarded and walk away.

Covet this: Balmain Embroidered Skirt with Mirrors.

I don't know what it is with me and shine now, but I LOVE it. When tribal met the Indian Bazaar, Balmains' embroidered skirt was born. I wont even lie, when I saw it, my jaw dropped; then I saw how much it was and it hit the floor. At a cool $15,100 you could be rocking this too.

Covet this: Balenciaga Royal Blue Tote

I was mindlessly browsing recently and came across this amazing, amazing Balenciaga bag-- that doesn't look very Balenciaga. The shape, shade and even the texture of the leather just scream luxury.

Monday, January 16, 2012

Hey there, Spring, I see you.

The coming of the new season means two extraordinarily important things. There is the stripping away of some of the layers we've accumulated over the wintry months--both literally and figuratively--the lightening of the sky, the colours, the weather, our moods. And then there are the clothes.

A New Dawn A New Day.

Hi everybody, I'm sure you've noticed I've been on a week long hiatus with my blog--  and everything else in my life as well. I just moved into residence at school, which has given me back so much time from my daily commute. So I'm extremely grateful for that. I am currently getting settled in my room, and I must say I have become fairly obsessed with home decoration. I'm yet to complete organization and decoration of my room, but I got a fair way last night, with my room mates help, and at least changed the layout to something I liked.

So as soon as that's done there will most definitely be before and afters of the whole thing. But in the mean time I'd like to show you these amazing stemless wine glasses that I bought this week. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are completely functional, shatter-proof plastic... that's right plastic. Don't judge.

And of course a little bit of home.

 So this blog post isn't anything very note worthy, I more or less wanted to tell you what I'm doing regarding my blog now that school and stress is back on. My goal is to consistently make between 2-4 blog posts every week, but not on any specific days. I will still post my updates on facebook and twitter, so look out for those!
I am also very excited to say that I am now a contributing writer for Fashionotes.com. So starting this week you can view my writing here, on http://www.fashionotes.com/content/. I'll also have links to those articles on my blog and social media accounts.
