I know, I know. After our less than stellar summer the last thing you want to think about now that the sun is shining is fall trends. That’s okay – I’m wearing the heck out of all my shorts, dresses and bikinis too! However, it is the right time to start planning for the season […]Read more "why it’s better to be thinking fall"
The age old rock and roll fashion statement is a band tee, and it’s here for fall with full force. While I don’t wear graphic shirts too often, on this particular day I felt like channeling my inner Penny Lane and got really into it. Not one to be too grungy, I dressed up the […]Read more "the best way to rock (and roll) a band tee"
This combo of a floaty, loose peasant dress paired with sneakers got me through most of my days back home in Toronto last week. I could not believe how hot it was – I guess a few years in Vancouver make you forget about humidity and temperatures above 30 degrees. This dress was perfect for […]Read more "not so prairie girl"

While being 5 foot 10 inches certainly helps me pull off baggier pieces, it doesn’t make me immune to looking dumpy in oversized clothing. To make sure you’re not drowning in your clothes, remember to play with […]Read more "wearing oversized clothing"

I’d recommend Value Village for a good selection of affordable second hand denim. Go with something a little bit roomy in the hip and leg area for […]Read more "how to make the perfect denim cut offs"
As soon as retailers begin getting in their fall merchandise and blowing out the warm weather clothes, I realize my favourite season is already halfway done. This year it even seems like summer is over before it started, but that does mean a killer set of pre-fall outfits to enjoy. The silk slip dress will […]Read more "pre fall "
Leather pants are one of those surprise staples you never know you need until you try. I wear them 10x more than I wear regular leggings, because they are just as easy but make me feel hot instead of lazy. They are best with cozy sweaters, but can be dressed up for work with a […]Read more "leather pants "
Although there is no denying I like the finer things in life, some of the staple pieces in my closet are surprisingly not ones I had to save for. There are expensive things (like this vintage Chanel) which I bought planning to keep forever, but the longevity and quality of a few pieces I have […]Read more "how to get your money’s worth with fast fashion"
I just did a little closet clear-out, so yesterday I donated a bunch of clothes and took the cream of the crop to Front and Company to consign. Being that we are halfway through summer (and they are still accepting seasonal pieces until the end of the month), I thought it was a good time to be […]Read more "6 reasons to shop consignment"
