The anarchist in me is ranting about how the purpose of dress codes is to keep all workers the same. We’re all equally disposable and replaceable. There is nothing special about us as individuals, so we should just keep our heads down and work. However, the realist in me recognizes that workplace culture can make or break a company. And dress codes are a part of that culture. This week, I’ve come up with several tips to not feel like a robot in dress code.
If there was one word that describes me, it would be “duality”. I often feel like my life is cinematic reel of highs and lows. And the month of July had been riddled with them. It was difficult picking four outfits that really represented July since I’ve been all over the place with work, weekend trips, and casual days. So in the theme of duality, I’ve chosen two formal outfits and two casual ones.
It’s no secret that I’m an avid shoe lover. Of course, I play the game where I guess what a person is like based on their shoes. Here are more of my observations. Give part 1 a read if you haven’t seen it yet!
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%.

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.
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!
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.
I woke up this morning and immediately sneezed 10 times. Then, I opened a snapchat from a friend with hay fever. Spring is finally here to stay, so it’s time for another trend report!
