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. 
Here are my favs of the season.



 1. Vince Camuto ($127) 2. Tory Burch ($305)  
3. Jeffrey Campbell ($120) 4. Chinese Laundry ($69) 
5. Tildon ($69) 6. Forever 21 
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


There is nothing I love more than summertime music festivals! 
The intoxicating mix of music, sunshine, drinks & friends make them a summer staple. 
One more perk? Multiple days of letting your inner flower child out!

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!

I was so inspired by this post on The Beauty Department that I grabbed Manic Panic in Fuschia Shock on my way home from work.
I am so in love with this triangle panel at the nape of my neck. You can't see it unless my hair is up so it's incognito at the office but it still lets my inner punk out a bit. 

Would you (or do you) kick you hair up a notch?
 

2014 Oscars Best Dressed List!

I was pleasantly surprised with some of my picks this year. There were so many women that I thought would make my list that got bumped because other gorgeous gowns were absolutely stunning. Here are my picks for this years Oscar best dressed list!

 Who made you best dress list?

My favorite look from Rachel Zoe's Spring 2014 show. 
In her words 'so major'! lol
 


I came across these Edie Rose (by Rachel Bilson) salt and pepper shakers recently and I just had to share them. They're so cute! 
You can nab them online at Macy's.

How awesome is this bookmark/letter opener by Marc Jacobs?! 
I love it and at $16 it's too cheap to live without! BOOKMARC

MAC's Fantasy of Flowers (New Collection) Lipsticks


MAC's new collection (Fantasy of Flowers) lipsticks have a little something for everyone. As you can see by the colour range, you can easily wear these shades all year round! I am all over Rose Lily and Snapdragon ($16 each or free with the Back to MAC program).
Which is your favorite?

Valentine's Day Manicure!


For this look I used an at home gel polish by Fuse over my entire nail (pink glitter - name not specified on bottle, it may have been on the packaging that I already tossed) and the heart is Kitten Heel outlined with Midnight Rendezvous by Sensationail.

Haute Helmet Couture


For more details and to start bidding visit the NFL site. 

John Varvatos's helmet is leading the auction for over $2k; which one would you bid on?

I wish I was rocking the Alice & Olivia helmet today but I would be just as happy in the Alexis Bittar, Eugenia Kim, Clover Canyon or Cynthia Vincent masterpieces!
