Don’t worry if you missed it, there’s another one on December 17th or you can always find these beauties online. For the body care junkie This […]

Wearable tech gold bangle by Wisewear

Function Meets Fashion with Wearable Tech

Technology is no longer something we hold onto or put in our purse or pocket — it’s something we wear on our body; it’s something that touches our skin. While most wearable tech focuses on the wrist (Fitbit and Apple Watch) and has a sporty look, there are numerous designs hitting the markets which encompass fashion with function. Sensors, conductive threads, 3D printing, and microcomputers promise to extend an object’s capabilities in ways we never imagined. If […]

Pablo necklace flatlay by Foxy Originals - a Canadian designer jewellery brand

Designer Jewellery Minus the Price Tag

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt for unique and affordable jewellery. Sure, there’s a huge selection at high street stores but they’re not locally made. I love supporting Canadian brands (especially female entrepreneurs) because they have a story to tell and their quality is far better than the former. I was introduced to Foxy Originals, a trendy designer jewellery brand, when I saw a few of their pieces at Indigo. Since […]

Erdem x H&M: Pieces that are Bound to Sell Out

Every year, with much anticipation, H&M collaborates with high fashion designers to create a limited edition collection sold at a fraction of the price. This year is no different with the Erdem x H&M collection with London Fashion Week favourite Erdem Moralioglu. You may recall the mayhem that ensued with the Balmain x H&M collection which sold out within minutes. This year I can expect the same, with people lining up the night before and […]

Leopard print faux fur fluffy Kate Spade bag on model

Leopard Leopard Leopard: Spotted at Kate Spade

This fall, it’s all about those fabulous feline prints. Kate Spade is on trend with their Leopard Leopard Leopard collection but they aren’t the first adopters of this print. Countless actresses and big designers over the years have made a fierce statement in feline fashion. More recently it’s been favoured by Kate Moss, Anna Wintour and Michelle Obama. Notice a trend? These are all strong women with strong points of view. The collection gains inspiration from […]

Cozy fall accessories including scarves and minimal everday jewelry

Must-have Fall Accessories if you’re on a Budget-ish

There’s no denying fall is officially here and with that comes fall accessories. Even towards the end of summer, Twitter is buzzing with fall trends and people are ecstatic to start wearing snuggly sweaters and drinking hot chocolate. I am no exception but soft scarves and trendy booties are more of my jam. First up are essential boots. We need to cover those feet up and keep them warm but still pretty looking. I picked […]

Jord wood watch frankie 35 beaded bracelet sandalwood

My First Impressions + Review of Jord Wood Watches

You guys know I’m crazy supportive of handmade products, so I thought I’d tell you about a wood watches company that I’ve fallen in love with. I stumbled upon Jord scrolling through Instagram one night and was instantly surprised by their modern aesthetic to an otherwise vintage style. I had first seen wood watches at the Trinity Bellwood’s Market but all the styles were too big and clunky for my small wrist thus I forgot all about […]

Laparelle leather clutch bag in yellow mustard at Inland 2017

Innovative Designers at the Inland Show

Every time I walk into this building I’m amazed by the architecture and all the natural light the architect has allowed flowing through. Thus, it’s an apt place to hold a fashion design exhibition supporting different style designers that are all made in Canada. Welcome to the fall Inland show. I’m a fan of anything shiny, which is why Chayle’s booth caught my eye. What originally looked like jewellery made from foil was actually silver […]
