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"
I often feel like wearing the same old comfy basics, so luckily it just takes a few details to kick that casual outfit up a notch. Blue jeans, a white tee and a ponytail may be the girl-next-door stand by, but with a crepe blazer and and pointy toe mules they suddenly become grown up […]Read more "sleek and sophisticated basics"

I picked it up a few years ago from the men’s section at a vintage store after searching high and low […]Read more "oversized denim jacket "
As a Canadian, it’s pretty much a given I have zero aversion to the denim on denim trend we’ve been seeing for the past few years. I especially love it when a trend comes along that is built on basics most people have in their closet already! Simply take your favourite […]Read more "jean genie "
Even though I usually work weekends, Sundays still call for a casual and easy outfit. Nothing wrong with a good jeans and a t-shirt combo, and I think the white pant is a bit more unexpected than traditional denim. This is probably my coziest sweater, since the wool/cashmere blend means it’s actually warm […]Read more "weekend wear"
