Bag Lady

I'm not a bag person at all - i have maybe a total of 4 and never really rotate much. But this to me is the most perfect thing i have ever seen. The black croc-embossed suede Givenchy George V tote.

Emerald Thoughts

I can't even begin to express just how much i am in complete lust with this look from the August Zara look book. It's so crisp and so effortless - the juxtaposition of every piece is flawless. And the green is so unexpected and chic. Also, couldn't think of anyone it would look better on than miss Suzie Bird.

Feelin' Feline

Such a great strong look. It's so simple, which is what makes it so fantastic. And I can never resist a good leopard print - paired with those orange-hued pumps? Ties the whole thing together. Love love love.

She's So High

What a beautiful image. No matter how excited i am for fall, i'm still going to enjoy every single last fantastic moment summer has to offer.

Boot Lust

I love these fall Alex Wang boots. They'd look cute with jeans and skirts alike, and their vintagey brown color adds a certain je ne sais quoi. Solid all around.

Double the Pleasure

Two lovely ladies in simple, lovely outfits.

Autumn Love

The weather is cooling down, the humidity is slowly dissipating and the nights feel crisp, cozy and comfortable. This points to one thing only: fall is right around the corner!! I don't think i'm the only one to hold autumn close to my heart, so i'm sure a majority of you will relate to my excitement. This beautiful story for Flair magazine is raising my enthusiasm.

Into the Dark

After all the summer neons, bright color pops and highly pigmented sartorial efforts, i'm certainly not opposed to a more toned down sensibility as the weather starts to cool.

Weekend Shenanigans {Photo Diary}

This past weekend, i got a very special visit from my dear friend Stephanie. She drove down all the way from Montreal to spend a few days with her ol' bud - yours truly - and her check out the new NYC digs. We really had the best time ever, scouring the streets of Williamsburg, discovering amazing hidden places, cute little local restaurants, dedicating a whole day to shopping in Soho and mostly, just having all kinds of fun catching up and enjoying each other's company. Of course, in good blogger form, we documented our adventures. Her fantastic SLR camera and her eye for capturing just the right moment for the perfect shot definitely helped make this photo diary possible. I can't wait for round 2 in the fall, where she promised to come back!
