I don’t know if you have noticed but Linen is making a comeback this summer. In past seasons, linen has been absent with the exception of the resort wear category as designers focused on man-made fabrics. Designers are getting braver and using linen with a minimalist approach but creating remarkable designs. For spring-summer 2018, French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus used it in a collection dedicated to his mother. Brock Collection showed the fabric’s Merchant Ivory-esque side in a bateauneckline embroidered dress and Akris upped its luxe credentials with an ecru trouser suit. This summer, look for linen to return to the forefront of fashionability. The fashion audience is embracing its credentials as a natural fibre made from flax plant with an easily traceable supply chain – not to mention its breathability and great texture. Not to mention, linen’s return helps create more sustainable collection as an eco-friendly but luxurious alternative to cotton.
It’s been a minute.
Sometime in December, I met a lady who I absolutely adore and advised me on savings. You know I am addicted to designer shoes and she said “Here’s the trick, don’t buy designer shoes at full price, buy them on sale”. I was like, it will be out of season and she said when you buy them at regular price, you still wear them out of season regardless. Guys, that was my lightbulb moment, and then I knew never again lol. So guys, I monitor prices on my phone, downloading boutique apps so I can get first dibs on my favourite shoes. That’s my secret. I bought this pair of Attico for 280 CDN. I came across the brand last year, owned by Italian designers Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini and launched February 2016. Attico in Italian means penthouse and is a collection of standout pieces for the modern muse.
I wanted a casual look for Friday and decided to pair my denim with off-the shoulder striped top.
Have a great day:)
I have been feeling lazy uploading on the blog, my mind and body needs a vacation soon. I promised I would do more pastel colours and fulfilling with this beautiful pink power suit. I remember going to Zara weeks ago seeing this pink on the mannequin and the pants were available but not the blazer. Fast forward to last week, I checked Zara and this two piece was just waiting for me. Okay, so does it happen to you that you are in love with an item and you check the store and the size available is yours? I consider that the “meant-to-be” moment and makes the buying decision easier.
I am so obsessed with two pieces that I am looking to add more to the closet this spring especially with the pastel series. I am thinking of doing a pastel combo soon and still working on it. I have linked similar power suits, earrings and shoes.

My sincere apologies for not posting this look on the blog last week. It’s been a busy couple of days. I can’t wait to share my spring edit with you but in the meantime enjoy my take on vertical stripes with green and red.
I usually don’t follow every trend but this year most of the trends got me all excited. Can I just have everything? Yes not all trends will work for me but for now can I get on vertical stripes, mini bags, pastel colours, etc. During the month of March, I will be showing you trends that I love and how I made it work for me. Also, if there are trends you think I should blog about, please leave a comment and let me know.
I am totally obsessed with the Paper Bag High Waist pants. It is a staple trend piece to have in your wardrobe. I love how chic and feminine they look when paired with a tank or even a button down shirt. The roomy pant legs makes me feel comfortable even though my waist is cinched (which I absolutely love). The paper bag waist pants is versatile and has always been in season. These pants can be incorporated into your fall wardrobe. The good news is that anyone can wear paper bag waist pants! They make you look instantly put together and mature, and they’re great for fancier occasions if you don’t want to wear a dress, or they can look professional enough for work. This look is definitely a work-inspired but you can dress it up depending on the occassion. Read more to find out how to wear paper bag waist pants. By the way, I have a behind the scenes video here
