So there's been a little change of plans in my new year's eve scenario... turns out i was feeling a little crazy and decided to go to Vancouver at the last minute to visit some friends! So no updates until i'm back on the 5th. Happy new year guys and thanks for all your love and support!! ♥♥♥



Love the mix of edgy leather with preppy chinos. Obviously worn pre-blizzard!

Chinos - Joe Fresh
Gray long sleeve - Gap
Plaid vest - Bluenotes (very old!)

Little Darling

Pretty and feminine. And incredibly sexy.


Soft Breeze

This photo looks like a warm, soft breeze. Like a fluffy cloud you just want to rest on. Am i being too poetic? Fuck it, this look is flawless. I just want to bury myself in that old-rose wrap.


Less is More

This look translates so well to the camera, no matter how simple it is, its effortless vibe screams style. Complete with a bare face and tousled hair.

Carry On

Let the holiday festivities proceed! I've got a series of family gatherings this week and then the infamous new year's eve will once again put an end to it all. I say infamous because i don't generally have a good time- too much pressure to find something amazing. So this year, i am happily working (yes, i moonlight as a waitress): making tons of cash and partying with your friends on location afterward seems like an ideal scenario to me!

A Very Merry Christmas

I hope you're all having a wonderful christmas and/or holidays, if you don't celebrate christmas. I'm spending a whopping 9 days with my parents, relaxing and celebrating. Christmas is always a big thing for us so we go all out! Hope everyone else is as lucky as me :)

To the Core

A truly exquisite collection. Calvin Klein pre-fall 2011.

J'aime Tout

The perfect editorial goes something like this: amazing styling, amazing model, amazing hair and makeup, amazing photographer.... You catch my drift.



My most prized possession. Wait- is that shallow? Oh well.

I love being inspired by real people. And Columbine is truly a style inspiration for me. She always looks flawless- done, yet slightly undone, but always polished in an effortless kind of way.


Black Swan

If you haven't seen Black Swan yet, go now. RUN!

Dream Girl

Stunning images with compelling simplicity. Pretty sure this is what happens when sensuality meets girl next door.

Pleats Please

Loving every detail here and superposition of every element. Menswear in a feminine way. But what i really want is a pleated leather skirt like this. I think Zara has the answer, if i'm not mistaken?


Retro Feel

Georgia May was perfectly cast for this editorial and i love everything about this particular photo. They look like they're in a movie from the 70's and they're in a house somewhere in the Hollywood Hills, no? Also shot by one of my favorite photographers, Alasdair McLellan.

Ice Cold

Winter is the bane of my existence and although it's technically not even winter yet, it's pretty full-fledged out there. Canada is definitely living up to its reputation right now. I do enjoy snow in December- SOLELY for the purpose of having a white Christmas (is there any other kind?! Really.). But after the 26th, i wish death upon the season. And just when you thought this was a venting post, i will add this: thank god it's pretty. And while looking at this image sends chills down my spine, i thought it was simply gorgeous: the movement, the frosty colors, the white background and to seal the deal, a touch of fluffy fur.



I'm not really a jewelry person, but i'm in love with all of these Kimberly McDonald pieces. Pretty? Check. Edgy? Check. Right up my alley.

Feel the Eyes Upon You

The embodiment of pure elegance and style. This can't be taught nor learned.

How exquisite is this dress? I've really been into ethnic stuff recently and this mini dress would be so perfect for the Holidays.

Negril Nuptials

Remember last month when i went to Jamaica? I know it's taken me a while, but i wanted to share a few photos with you guys cause it was really phenomenal. Was there for a girlfriend's wedding and it couldn't have been more amazing. Those 4 days went by in flash.
