You can still take advantage of the huge Nordstrom Warehouse Sale hosted by StyleDemocracy until April 17th at the International Centre (Hall 6) in Mississauga! Below are the hours:

  • Friday, April 14: 11am - 9pm

  • Saturday, April 15 - Sunday April 16: 10am - 6pm

  • Monday, April 17: 10am  - 5pm

If you have the patience to look through racks and racks of clothing and are prepared for potentially long lines, then you'll probably walk out with 10 items for under $300. I was able to snag these Rebecca Minkoff mules and shirt for $70!

My friend and I debuted our first single together called, "Joey, Your Poo Really Stinks" for our friend Joey's birthday 6 years ago. Here's a preview of the lyrics: It doesn't matter what you eat, Don't matter what you drink, Oh Joey, your poo really stinks, Your poo really stinks (x8). So if you're wondering why most of my Instagram captions are poo or fart related, it dates back long before I met them, and was only amplified with our friendship.

Who else understands 1337? Brings me back to my gaming days..

Not really, but the hair (inspired by Erin Elizabeth) made me feel like a bohemian princess. Definitely didn't turn out as well as hers did, but you can watch the fun tutorial here! Mother nature also decided to tease us with spring-like weather this past weekend. However, it was fairly windy out (as you can tell by my crazy baby hairs), so we were a little bit deceived. 

PS. My fly is indeed NOT open contrary to what it may look like :)

#MyContactsPoppedOut - Collab with Chris Leung

Right when Chris and I parked at our shoot location, my right contact decided to pop out of my eye. I didn't have eyedrops on me so I wasn't able to pop it back in without irritating it. Anyone that wears contact lenses understands how weird it is to only wear it in one eye, especially when you're half blind. I contemplated taking my left one out, but with my eyesight being close to -8 that wasn't an option. #contactlensproblems 

This is my first time shooting with friend and photographer, Chris Leung, and it was also his first fashion shoot. Definitely won't be our last collaboration! Feel free to check out more of his work on his flickr account.

50 shades of... Beige? Taupe? Nude? 

This neutral palette was inspired by Hot Miami Styles' mocha turtleneck bodysuit, which they kindly sent me. It's the first bodysuit I've ever owned, and probably my last as I just can't wrap my head around the need to unbutton a flap every time I need to use the restroom. This very reason is also why I stay away from rompers. However, impracticality aside, it's a versatile piece that I can see myself pairing with various items.

#NotAnAromaAd - With CV Photography

Contrary to what some of these pictures may show, this is not an Aroma ad. I ordered a simple hot chocolate, but they must not have heard the chocolate part because it tasted like hot bland milk. This is my second collab with the lovely CV Photography and definitely not the last! Do ignore the bulge that is my ankle as this was 30 minutes-post-sprain :).

I've also recently teamed up with Lawsofashion! You'll be able to find all my upcoming fashion posts and my recent #2Fast2FURious post there, as well as other fashion inspirations created by other bloggers globally.

Couldn't stop feeling myself in this incredibly soft faux fur vest from Aritzia. I decided to layer a jean jacket underneath for some added warmth and dimension. This is probably my favourite outfit to date, and is a perfect example where comfort and chic play Switzerland and aren't butting heads.

A turtleneck is a quadruple threat. It's not only cozy, warm and cute, but it's a great cover-up for double chins, hickies, weird rashes, and of course your neck (for days where you just ain't feeling it). It's also versatile in what you pair it with, whether that be a skirt, jeans, leggings, shorts, or if long enough -- simply nothing. 


What is your paradise? I'll be visiting Turks and Caicos next month, which has been deemed paradise on earth, and I'm sure it will be. However, my ideal version of paradise is to simply be able to eat as much sushi, drink as much bubble tea and sleep as much as I want, whenever I want, without worrying that I'd turn into Snorlax. 

I stumbled upon this work of art while searching for booties down Queen St. Trying to find an exact dupe for Acne Studios' Jensen Boots is proving itself more difficult than I had imagined. Breaking in these Jeffrey Campbell flats is also taking longer than I would like. The back of my ankles are taking a beating, but other than that they're super comfortable. Speaking of super comfortable, I have these Babaton Cohen pants in 3 colours, and would invest in 5 more if I could.


October is when my beanies come out to play and don't crawl back into the closet until mid-April. They're cute, keep my tiny ears warm, and I don't have to worry about what my hair looks like. I bought this plush coat last year on sale and have been waiting for the perfect weather to wear it. It's as soft on the inside as it is on the outside, and you'll see me constantly petting it as if it were my own alpaca.

This outfit entails all your fall essentials: 1) Beanie, 2) Oversized coat, 3) Boyfriend Cut-offs, and 4) Black booties. I'll be doing a review on the Chloe 'Drew' in a separate blog post, but as a teaser, I friggin' love it.
