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
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.
I never thought I'd find a use for this skirt. I bought it on a whim, years and years ago and never quite found something to pair it with. 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)
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
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
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
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
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
Happy Monday! You know, today I was just musing on bespoke items and how I need more in my wardrobe. Shopping is all well and dandy but any style maven worth her salt will extoll - relentlessly I might add, the virtues of bespoke clothing. If like me, you have a hard time finding clothes … Continue reading On Bespoke
I had a battle with my wardrobe for the past three days, trying desperately to prove to it that despite the overwhelming presence of black in my closet, green is actually my favourite colour. I lost that battle on the second day but like the stubborn human I am, I persisted. I have graciously given … Continue reading Moving along.
