#DenimOnDenim - Collaboration with Converse

I don't know if y'all already know this story, but back in grade 2 I wandered over to the 'senior' area and accidentally got hit in the face with an apple. Yes, some boy in grade 6 was throwing apples and it luckily hit me right in the moneymaker. My nose started bleeding and the vice principal made the boy apologize to me. Ever since then, I've been scared of being hit in the face by all kinds of flying objects, especially balls.

#Velvet - Collaboration with American Eagle Outfitters

American Eagle was actually the first brand to regram one of my outfits on Instagram when I was just starting out as a blogger. I couldn't contain my excitement and that was definitely one of the highlights of last year. My first job in high school also happened to be at American Eagle, so it's crazy how it's come full circle. You can view my feature on their blog here

#RedWedding

HAHA misleading title, but with 2-ish weeks away until the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere, I thought it was fitting. That's all.

#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.

#ChickenBiryani

During this shoot I was craving chicken biryani, so I made it my mission to get some good biryani the next day. Now I'm craving some shanghai noodles and fried rice, so by the time you read this I will probably already be at Asian Legend.

Tip: Never write a blog post hungry. Also you don't want to know me when I'm hangry. :)

#2Fast2FURious

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.

#DontLeafMe

I was told it was going to be drizzy outside on Saturday, so I was expecting a lil wayne. What a re-leaf it stopped raining long enough to take pictures though. I've taken a lichen to gloomy weather because it offers the best lighting for shoots. Whoever said being punny is a wok in the park was clearly lying. Think I'm ending this blurbage at the white time, and I'm sure this won't be mist. There's definitely mushroom for improvement here, but I hope these will grow on you. Now lettuce all cry because these puns are soda pressing.

#BeanieLyfe

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.

#PoshSpice

For some odd reason, the Gooderham building in St. Lawrence reminds me of that scene in Harry Potter when the Knight Bus goes between two London buses, brick by brick. Does anyone else have a go-to British accent when they read the HP series? Well mine comes out whenever I'm in this draped trench, and also whenever I'm feeling a bit posh.

#DontCallItFrisco

This was my second visit to the golden city aka. baghdad by the bay aka. fog city aka. paris of the west aka. san fran aka. city by the bay aka. whatever you want to call it. I was plagued with the stomach flu the first time, so I didn't experience much of SF other than from inside my hotel room. I went for Dreamforce, but stayed the weekend for some R&R with my colleagues.

We decided to visit beautiful Sausalito, which I've decided is where I'm going to retire in 40 years. I hadn't ridden a bicycle in more than 10 years until this past weekend, but with views like this I'd do it everyday! It's no wonder even 70-year-old grandmas are ripped there. It was nice to get out of downtown SF and to not smell pee at every corner. Everything from the weather, view, people, and the food was breathtaking.

Let's not forget the painted ladies!

#ShagedelicBaby

Mustard will be doing some ketchup this coming Fall, as it quickly becomes a new favourite and this season's it colour. It's accented when coupled with dark denim, but when paired with this cozy striped skirt, I felt like I was channelling a more behaved, less hairy Austin Powers.
