Lets do the Salsa

Hi,

I recently came across this brand Rahi on shop bop and I was fascinated with the colour of the dress and the off the shoulder details. I was a bit hesitant about the length as I am a petite woman. To my surprise, it was the perfect length when I wore it and made me want to do the salsa. I felt like the lady in the red dress emoji (hehe). This dress is perfect for the summer, it is light and comfortable and has the best waist cinching effect. This dress is currently on sale (linked below along with similar dresses).

Ready or Dot

Hi,

Happy Memorial Day to my US readers, I am sure you are enjoying your extra Sunday. For the rest of my readers, hope you are excited for the week. I have to make a decision about my new hair-do, I am confused. I don’t know what look to go for (short, long or just con-rows). I am tired of wearing wigs, so I have to make a decision by tomorrow.

Summer Comeback with Linen

Hi,

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.

Lilac Dreams

Hi,

Lilac is the colour this year and it had to be in my lookbook. Fortunately, this likely dress made my dream come through. From the colour, the feminine touch with the thin straps and ruffle details, this dress is a complete winner in my book. Due to my busy schedule, I had to shoot 8 outfits for the blog. On a typical day, I shoot 3 looks for the blog, so 8 looks was absolutely tiring but we got it done.

Color Blocking with Attico

Hi Guys,

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:)
