My Favorite Casual Bag

Everyone has an accessory that is their 'go-to' item. 

You know it, it's the thing you put on when you're running late for work that you know will go with anything. 

One of my favorite items is my Rachel Rachel Roy fringe bucket bag. It's chic, boho and fun. 




What's your go-to purse?

Happy National Sunglasses Day!

Happy National Sunglasses Day!
Finally! A day to celebrate one of the most iconic and fun accessories in life, the sunglasses.

Not only do they keep the pesky sun out of our eyes and protect our sensitive skin from premature ageing but they also add a finishing touch of glamour, fun or attitude to any outfit.
How's that for double duty?

#MyVegasStyle Challenge

I was recently asked to create a few looks to transition your way from day to night while lapping it up at the Aria Resort & Casino, by Vegas.com.

For those of you that know me, I love Las Vegas! 
I've been with my girlfriends a couple of times and we always come home with the most amazing memories. 

The restaurants, pools and shopping is impeccable and the shows are second to none. It truly is a place where you can do anything! 

Here are a few looks that I created for a fabulous day in Las Vegas:

Brunchin'

This past Sunday, my whole fam got together to celebrate all of the moms in the family! 
We went to a fantastic brunch at Casa Loma and then toured around. It had been ages since I had been there as a tourist and not just for a private function. It was so much fun!

This past Sunday was chillier than usual, which always makes it a little more difficult to dress. 
Since my husband and I were just going to a comedy club, I went super casual, with a pleather hoodie, scarf and colorful pants.

Fashion Arts Toronto Fashion Week

This past Tuesday, I caught 6 runway shows during Fashion Art Toronto (FAT) at Daniels Spectrum. I can honestly say that I wish I was able to attend every other night that week because I was so impressed with the talent that I saw. Prior to Tuesday night, I was unfamiliar with the designers I saw and luckily, I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed every single show. I still can't believe that this was the first year I had attended even though it's in its 9th year running!



 

 Above was the schedule for the night that we attended (opening night: Tuesday April 22). There were 2 more shows after this but since I was just getting over the flu, I left before the finale.

My favorites of the night were definitely Simone's Rose and Seraghadaki, although I was impressed by all of the 6 I saw.

My girlfriend Laurelle and I at the show. 
She writes a fantastic makeup blog Paint Me Pretty, see her FAT post here!

d'Orsay Flats : Spring 2014 Staple

As you may or may not know, last season Jenni Kayne put d'Orsay flats on the proverbial must have list for Spring 2014. 
They're cute, comfortable and way more stylish than a flip flop.

3. Jeffrey Campbell ($120) 4. Chinese Laundry ($69)

7. Manolo Blanik ($753) 8. BCBGeneration ($63) 
9. Cole Haan ($228) 10. Jenni Kayne ($495)

I'm grabbing the BCBGeneration nude flats (#8) immediately!

Coachella Fashion 2014

Spring 2014!



Looks like it does exist! Everyone in Toronto start to wonder if Spring had ditched us for good. Luckily, I got to put away my winter coat this week and don my Calvin Klein Spring (rain or shine) jacket. Common summer!
