Shoe Addict

[music: smily by Lily Allen]

I bought these 2 pairs of shoes at the mall yesterday. The first is pair of teal peep toe slingbacks from Urban Behaviour on sale for $9.99 USD. Don't you just love the gold!?

These metallic silver flats were $25.50 USD from Costa Blanca.

I bought two tops as well, but, I was having trouble getting flattering pictures of the tops.

Concert for Diana

[music: Missing You by P. Diddy]

I'm not sure how many of you were watching Concert for Diana yesterday but, it was quite amazing! It was a six hour event filled with music, dancing and, of course fashion!

The two handsome Princes. Will's dance moves during 'Maneater' were so adorable.

Nelly Furtado (left) and Lily Allen (right) paired vibrant dresses with great shoes and minimal gold accessories. Lily Allen sang especially well at the Concert.

Joss Stone performed in both a super short minidress and a gorgeous floor length gown. I just love how she performs barefooted!

Minidresses were everywhere last night. The color of Fergie's dress, left, looked great against her skin tone but the ruffles at the hem look a bit like a cloud and the black and white accessories were a bit harsh. Natasha Bedingfield, right, looked great in a white, sequined mini dress.

I couldn't find a good picture, but the Princesses , Beatrice and Eugenie, seems to be quite fashionable!

If you haven't already read my last post, keep scrolling down! I'm gonna try to post more this summer so if anyone has some ideas for what to post, please share!

7 Little Secrets

[music: Big Girls Don't Cry by Fergie]

After being tagged by The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Genuine Inspiration and Pearls and Purses I have decided to finally get down to business. Slow, I know. I meant to do this over a week ago but then I got shoved off the computer and haven't gotten around to it since! So, here goes:

1. I have an obsession with Elton John. I was just listening to him, in fact!

2. I love aloe vera lotion. Sometimes, I hope that I'll get burnt just so that I can put on aloe!

3. I don't use normal toothpaste. Currently I'm using Dr. Burt's 'Cinna Mint' which is made with parsley and chlorophyll (yuck, I know) and before that I was using Kiss My Face Aloe Toothpaste. What's next on my list? One of the many flavours from
Breath Palette - if only I could decide what kind!

4. I enjoy making funny faces. It's sort of a hobby, actually. Smiles just get so dull after a while and funny faces are just so much funner!

5. I love to dress up. I try to make everything much dressier than it actually is and I would wear dresses and heels everywhere but I think I'd end up looking a little overdressed.

6. I can't swim. At all. If you put me in the water I would probably drown! So, if anyone's looking to get rid of me I suggest you throw me in the ocean! Actually, a pool would do just fine.

7. I love Jesus Christ with everything in me - he's the reason I'm alive and he's blessed me so much!

And who do I tag? Uh. I have no idea. Anyone who comes across theis blog and hasn't done this little activity yet has been tagged!

Tomorrow, I might possibly post so come check! I make no promises, though.

Summer Toile

[music: Chicago by Sufjan Stevens]

I have an obsession: toile. I always loved toile (it's gorgeous, how can you not!) but I finally found out what it was called and now I can't get enough! I don't own a lot of toile - only one pair of black toile flats - but these are some wonderful toile pieces I found!

These two strapless dresses (left, $69.95 USD at Anthropologie; right, $69.99 USD at Ann Taylor) are very fresh and great for dressy summer events. The black and white toile is a bit more formal while the red is playful but still dressed-up.

These two pieces combine a casual style with black toile. The dress (left, $112 USD by Torn from ShopBop) incorporates a bubble hem but I don't like the way it's all put together. The sweater ($134 USD by Torn from ShopBop) is very cute - toile is definitely not a pattern you often see on hoodies!

Old Navy's jumped on the toile bandwagon, as well! The shorts (left, $26.50 USD from Old Navy) use a khaki toile which is a much more natural color. The flats (right, $19.50 USD from Old Navy) come in a few colors and both of these options are easy to wear and inexpensive.

I am absolutely in love with these flats ($237.00 USD by Dior from eLuxury)! The bows, the charms, the toile - it's all so perfect!

I apologize for the template - it's a bit of a wreck right now as I'm 'remodeling'. This is my last week of school and exams finish the week after that so hopefully I'll be able to find much more time to blog!

[music: Outside Looking In by Jordan Pruitt]

This is a dress I bought a little while ago at Urban Planet. Right now, I'm wearing it with a yellow t-shirt and black leggings underneath and a navy blue necklace. I love the bold pattern and summer colors. If you have any more suggestions of what to pair it with, I'd love to hear, because, I'm actually quite awful at putting together outfits.

By the way, those crazy numbers in the 'Title' space have no meaning. I just hate to leave the 'Title' blank.

[music: Spies by Coldplay]

So that hiatus lasted a lot longer than I expected. Quebec was amazing - and the shopping was fabulous! So something I've been considering for a while is a total revamp of this here blog - new name, new URL, new header, new everything. I started this blog as more of a journal but it's morphed into a fashion blog and now I'm looking for new ideas so that the look of the site fits the content. If you have any ideas for a name or a layout theme or anything at all, let me know! My creative juices haven't quite started flowing yet...

[music: Grace Kelly by Mika]

I've gone to Quebec for Spring Break so I won't be updating for at least another week (not that I was updating much in the first place). Au revoir, mes amis!

Picture Perfect: Yanick Dery

[music: What Goes Around by Justin Timberlake]

I do love photographs and I do love fashion so it would make sense that I adore fashion photography, no? So I've started a new section, Picture Perfect, to highlight different photographers of the fashion world and some of my favourite photos. Instead of commentating on what I think of each photo, I'll let you look and interpret yourself because this just seems like the proper way to look at photos.

Paris Fashion Week: Chanel and Celine

[music: Cowboy Take Me Away by the Dixie Chicks]


"Karl Lagerfeld picked up on the idea of cold-weather college-girl styling that's emerging as a Parisian sub-theme." - Sarah Mower

Pretty trenches, very young and fresh.

Classic Chanel. Those boots, right, are splendid! And left, the more formal side of layering.


The only reason I decided to take a look at the Celine show is because my friend's name happens to be Celine. I was pleased with what I saw!

Left, the return of the sweater dress. Right, I'm loving the knotted waist. And those gorgeous black bags!

They make those high-waisted trousers look so good! Right, the cut of the leather jacket gives it a great feminine look.

The O.C.: The End's Not Near, It's Here

[music: The Hand That Holds the World by Starfield]

The O.C. took it's final bow last night and I, for one, am gonna miss it. After they killed off Marissa I really thought they had butchered the show but I was pleasantly surprised with this last season. As for the finale, I was pleased - they seem to like killing off characters so I must say I was ecstatic when no one died. There were just so many parts of this episode I loved - Seth's baby hand prints, Kirsten's baby. The characters have sort of become real people over the years - slightly psychotic, I know.
Such pretty tops. Rachel Bilson (Summer) and Autumn Reeser (Taylor) are so gorgeous - actually, everyone on this show is gorgeous.

Such nice bride's maid's dresses. And again, they both look so lovely!

I'm not quite sure why I like this outfit of Summer's. Or maybe I just like the hot guys she's standing next too. And how cute is it that Ryan named his bunny Flapjacks?!

Not the greatest picture but Summer looks so gorgeous - the hair, the dress, it's all so pretty!

Now, I wanted some pictures of Willa Holland (Kaitlyn) because I do love her style, both on screen and off, but couldn't find any. Man, I'm gonna miss The O.C. so much.

In case you were wondering, New York was amazing! I might try to post pictures of my purchases soon.

Thursday, February 15, 2007


So, here's the thing - life is busy, homework is plentiful and I'm going to New York for a few days. I'm also going on a bit of a hiatus, it could last for 2 days, it could last for 2 weeks, it could even last for 2 months - I don't know, so I'm just calling it temporary. I had a few posts on the go (well, most of them haven't made it into drafts yet, but still) but those, I suppose, will just have to wait. I will try to leave you all comments, my lovelies, and if you have and random urges to read 5 month old posts on this dear blog, it will be here waiting for you.

NY Fashion Week: Anna Sui, Proenza Schouler and Michael Kors

[music: Take It All by Hillsong United]

Did I miss a whole day of posting NY Fashion Week? Yes. But, I'm invigorated and ready to post!

Anna Sui

I have to say, I was disappointed. In the past, I've been a fan of Anna Sui but this collection was just not appealing.

All I see here is winter wear gone wrong.

I did enjoy the use of prints and the dress, right, I actually really do like.

Proenza Schouler

"...and rediscovered the interest in surface decoration that informed some of their best collections." -Nicole Phelps

Maybe it's the odd caps or the men's style trousers but there is something about this collection I love.

Left, it seems to have the puffiness of a snowsuit but I do love the fabric.

Michael Kors

"Working in a palette of soft, flattering (read: salable) neutrals, with shots of safety orange and caution yellow, he laid the cashmere on thick." -Nicole Phelps

Kors put a spin on casual men's looks with muted greys and a splash of color, right.

The most beautiful, not to mention flattering, jersey dresses of all time.

NY Fashion Week: Adam + Eve, Naeem Khan and Marchesa

[music: My Glasses by Maria Mena]

Another day, another batch of amazing shows. Is it just me or do they keep getting better and better? Do enjoy!

Adam + Eve

"...embraced the sporty collegiate life—a theme familiar to those who've been following his line." - Joanna Rodger

2 very different dresses, I love the coziness of the first and the flower pattern of the second.

Formal looks meet cozy fabrics. This would be my ideal winter wardrobe!

Naeem Khan

"...he sent out a series of sheaths and gowns covered in jewel-tone palettes." -Laird Borrelli

There were a few absolutely gorgeous dresses in this show. These, would be 2 of them.

And another 2. The dazzling number, right, might look tacky in real life but it's so beautiful on the runway!


I, personally, love Marchesa. Everything is so gorgeous and, well, see for yourself!

Gorgeous! I love how the long hems brings back a bit of old Hollywood glam.

Pretty, pretty, pretty! I cannot get over the fuchsia color, left - it's marvelous! I just wanna eat it all up. He. He.
