Have you ever had those days when you carefully put together an outfit and still feel like something is missing? You feel cute in that outfit but you also feel like you’re 99%. This week, I’m sharing some tips on how I take that 99% and make it 100%. Because we all deserve to feel our best everyday!
Hello and happy summer, my fashion babes! It is time again for my monthly OOTD recap. This month, I often found myself going grungy one day and going elegant the next. It was a month of bold prints, another hair change, a new piercing, and the colour of my soul- black.
The fashion industry can be a vicious pit of consumerism and lifestyle marketing. But to me, fashion is first and foremost a form of self expression. Somehow, it has become rebellious to be individualistic when the media pushes for conformity. This week, I’m sharing some common traits of fashion rebels.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the flow of events shape a person’s life. Every choice we make now impacts the sort of choices we’ll have to make in the future. There are infinite realities and infinite ways things could have happened- and that’s a big cause of regret. Because we never know if a choice we’ve made was truly the best one.
All my close friends know I have a hoarding problem with beauty products. The thought of running low on anything gives me physical chills. I have a cupboard of unopened products that somehow keeps growing. I justify my habits with the fact that I give away anything that isn’t for me but could work wonders for a friend or family member. But I’ll be sharing some empties (and near empties) that I loved and would repurchase.
I keep telling myself to shop more at mid-range stores like Topshop and M Boutique so I’d feel more like an adult. But wherever there is a big sale, I’m a moth to the flame. It’s just part of my bargain hunting DNA! Anyways, for any Toronto ladies reading, I totally recommend checking out the closing sale at this Urban Planet. The entire store is $10 or less! And very select items like some jeans and outerwear are $20.
To be honest with you, I feel like I’ve been wearing nothing but clothes that look like pajamas. So I decided to do something different with my usual end-of-month-OOTD post. Instead of sleep shorts, my dad’s old hoodie, and the same few shirts (I assume nobody wants to see that, but correct me if you do), you’ll be seeing the more polished looks that I could’ve worn. Because I ain’t about bending the truth!
It’s been a while since my winter activities post, so I decided to make one for summer as well! This summer is quite sentimental for me. It’s officially one year after graduating from University. One year of being in the adult world with no transcripts or profs to guide me. More importantly, a good friend of mine and I met a really awesome individual. She is just as creative and quirky as us, but she’s on Visa from Japan and leaving after Canada Day…so we’re making the most of the summer.
Styling challenges are always fun for me. I’m a firm believer in finding new combinations with my current wardrobe and showing some love to my under-worn pieces. I’ve had this maxi dress for about two years and have only worn it 2-3 times. To be honest, I’ve hardly ever worn maxi length anything. People tell me that I should since I have long legs, but I’ve always had trouble styling the dress. So here are my attempts at three different looks.
