Sarah Taylor

Canada isn't exactly known for its fashion, even if the country does have some amazing talent (Jeremy Laing? Rad Hourani? Even Thakoon is Canadian!). We don't really have any style icons that hail from our vast land - i honestly can't think of any known canadian personality who moonlights as a style icon. Anyway, in an effort of patriotism (ok maybe not), in comes Sarah Taylor. She's a VJ on MuchMusic (the canadian equivalent of MTV) and when i used to watch a few years back, i remember thinking i wanted that girl's style. She has the figure of a model, flawless skin, impeccable taste, a personal twist on every outfit and charisma to boot. I can't imagine her having changed, and while i haven't watched MuchMusic in years, i still declare her Canada's most stylish famous person. It was really difficult to find photos of her, so i can't even display her sartorial endeavors properly and with the merit it deserves. But a good indication is that she was recently captured by the Sartorialist for his Art of the trench business. So trust me on this one.

Épuré

This look encompasses the exact aesthetic i strive for. Simple, chic, elegant, unfussy and just effortlessly cool as shit.

Snejana

It's funny cause just yesterday i was thinking to myself "where has Snejana gone?? I haven't seen her in a while...!" and as fate would have it, she popped up this morning in Numéro Korea, looking as perfect as ever.

Unreal

She's like from another planet, but the planet of amazingly good looking and OTHER-WORDLY breed. Miles away from her god-awful CFDA appearance. Gareth Pugh meets Stam is a match made in heaven.

R.I.P. Daul Kim



My heart stopped when i read this... Daul Kim hanged herself yesterday in her Paris apartment, in the 10th arrondissement. This is insane. Why? She was even on this november's Russh cover. The last post of her very popular blog, iliketoforkmyself was entiled "say hi to forever" and written the day before she died... I wonder what the hell must've gone so wrong.

Seeing red

Though i'm not so much into bright colors, i've really been feeling red recently and apparently i'm not the only one. I loved how Alexa looked at the CFDA fashion fund. Plus she's in Jason Wu, whom i'm gorwing to love more and more, i think he's brilliant. Although i'm not crazy about flat shoes, i think they're adorable here.



And the ever so fabulous Karlie, in Costello Tagliapietra.


As well as another one of my faveskis, Kasia, in Rag & Bone.


Of course, LSD is a vision of coolness in SS 10 Proenza! Not too sure what Stam was thinking. I like the dress, but what's with the hair?

Off to the Salon Vintage

It's still so nice out here in Paris that i can still be insanely comfortable in shorts and just a leather jacket, albeit with a fur scarf... I'm one of those people who's always cold, and i know that if i were in Montreal right now i'd be doing some heavy layering. Unfortunately i didn't buy anything at the Salon Vintage (2500 euros for a Balenciaga coat is a little out of my price range), but my fancy was insanely tickled.






Jacket - Mackage
Shorts - Vintage

Fur scarf - Vintage
Shoes - my favorite no name boots i found on 6th ave.
