J & K at Toronto Fashion Week – David Dixon F/W 2013

30 Mar

Loves!

This was our first time at Toronto Fashion Week, our first time attending a fashion show of this magnitude, and our first time really getting out there and talking to SO many bloggers, stylists, buyers, merchandisers, and just down right amazing people! Such a rush!

We were lucky enough to attend the shows on both Day 2 and Day 5, thanks to a very good friend of ours Catherine. After a bit of a taste, you can only imagine how zealous we were that we weren’t able to be in attendance the entire week. None the less, here are a few shots of us at the tents! Out of the designers we saw, one of the first and also one of our favourites was David Dixon!

David Dixon was all about women empowerment! The show began with a video where a woman was frowned upon when making a comment in regards to the gentlemen’s conversation. Showcasing that women should not speak for we do not know half of what men know. Men are smarter than us but then the screen shatters and says ‘bullshit!’ It was probably one of the best openings I (J) saw from all the shows that we watched. The one aspect that really popped from Dixon’s show was the neck feature of all the feathers! I absolutely adored it! I could really see this being a trend for next fall. I know I’ll be rocking it! 🙂

David Dixon’s show was definitely very empowering. The music was enticing (insert Run The World by Beyonce here) and the models looked and felt so comfortable and sexy in his clothing. The strong lines of blacks and whites, the pop of cobalt blue, and who can forget about those stunning crystalized accessories in everything from earrings, ear cuffs, necklaces and bracelets. Such a fantastic finishing touch to these sophisticated, yet edgy looks. Here are a few shots of us enjoying the tents after the show 🙂

Hey hey hey!

I had these photos taken last Sunday when the beau was in town. It was late morning, and we were heading down to Yorkdale to do a bit of shopping. I’ve noticed in the most recent of days that the leaves were starting to turn from beautiful yellows and oranges to dark browns and to say the least – miserable black specks of what once was. Winter is really creeping up on us! I’ve been loving dark denim, simple tops or sweaters with chunky, long cardigans and boots. (I ordered these boots on JustFab.com and I am obsessed!) I’m also absolutely smitten with this MK cross body purse that Julie gifted me for my birthday (kind of love her..!) What better to top this all off than a red matte lip?

This “Ruby Woo” lipstick from MAC has been an obsession of J and I ever since we hit the counter at The Bay. Slapping this red lip on instantly picked this outfit up and brought it to life.

3 WANTS:

20121004-132653.jpg

Slouchy hat:

Ok so I don’t know the proper term for this hat regardless this hat is purrrfect for the fall! Not only is it so cute with loose curls and a dark lip but it protects your ears from the chilly cold. It’s a great add on accessory to your outfit where you won’t go unnoticed 😉

MAC lipstick in ruby woo:

I discovered this lip shade from watching a makeup tutorial by ‘makeup by camila’ on YouTube. Camila used this colour and it looked absolutely gorgeous! It’s a great colour for day and night and I’ve been thinking about incorporating more lip shades to my look so this shade would be a fabulous start!

Zara leather jacket:

Now that it’s fall season you must own a leather jacket! This item should probably be on the Need list because it is essential! As the weather changes, wool coats are not to be brought out just yet but a simple sweater isn’t enough. Leather jackets are just the right piece to add onto your everyday look!

2 NEEDS:

20121004-190448.jpg

Rag and Bone booties:

I’m in love with these booties! Its an amazing bootie to wear everyday to work and school. Not too high of a heel so you can wear them for long hours and it just adds a little style to every look. Lalalovee!

20121004-190701.jpg

H&M Tweed blazer:

For fall 2012 a tweed blazer is the right choice! Its a classic really. Tweed blazers will never be out of style, thats right I said it. Tweeds are great for the fall, gives you the extra warmth for the weather and would be great with a matching trouser. Am I wrong? Don’t think so.

1 LUST:

Stella McCartney cobalt wool coat:

I am loving absolutely everything Stella McCartney, she’s one of my favourite designers! This year’s FALL 12 collection is stunning. Her prints, sharp tailoring and vibrant colours are great for this season!

This cobalt coloured wool coat is a fall trend my lovelies! Cobalt is THE colour of the season so why not show it off in a coat? Stand out from all the black!

Do you agree?

I had yesterday and today off to spend time with my beau. He ended up having to work a double shift before making the 12 hour journey over to see me, but we both couldn’t have been happier when he arrived.

Work has been getting to the both of us and we each happend to catch a cold at the same time, oddly enough. Yesterday was surprisingly warm, warm enough for me to wear this sleeveless tee without a sweater or blazer out! I was quite pleased, and wasn’t expecting to have any pics taken, but my biggest fan snuck some shots in 😉 I rocked this new tweed style blazer from H&M for the evening. I have class on Tuesday nights and we went to see a late movie, so I knew I’d need it not only for the chilly theatre, but for the commute home. In fact, in an attempt to jazz this blazer up, I’m on the hunt for a jeweled brooch to place on the lapel. It would make a world of difference in how I can transition this blazer from work to play.Once downtown, we ended up seeing End of Watch starring Jake Gyllenhall, and it was really intense! Def a reccommendation. I also stepped it up a bit from the casual, and wore these heeled booties I picked up from TJ Maxx when I was in New York. What have you guys been upto?

South Orange + New Hair !

24 Sep


I headed down to New Jersey to visit the beau for a few days and whenever I get the chance, I love to take a drive down to South Orange. I love the old, homey feel of the neighbourhood, the brick buildings, the old signage, the small vintage shops, even the Starbucks down there is very cozy with old maps of the neighbourhood on the wall and a 1950’s US mailbox as a fixture by the door. The streets are tree-lined which I love, and everyone is very friendly and accommodating. Fall is most definitely with us now, and the morning was a bit chilly but when the sun came out, I found myself not needing the boyfriend blazer I had planned to wear out.
Have you noticed? I went back to a brunette ! Well, sort of. I’ve been a red-head for close to 5 years now and don’t get me wrong, I love being a ginger. I love the way red hair suits my complexion and I love being the unexpected red-head in the crowd, however I’d been wanting to get back a shade of brown for some time now, and what better time than the fall? My hair stylist was so surprised, and didn’t want to let go of all the red just yet, so he gave me this beautiful warm cognac color which I am smitten with. The day I had it done, I was shocked every time I looked in the mirror! I couldn’t believe it was so much darker! What do you guys think?

Hey.

So after literally waiting a month to be able to see Corain. He was able to visit me for 2 short but very sweet days, and this is what I wore out to pick him up at the bus terminal. The weather was pretty rainy and cold, so I sported one of my absolute fav trenches from Armani Exchange with a light sweater from Forever 21, Levi jeans, and a pair of chunky brown booties from INC. We ended up just getting some light dinner, and heading home to watch movies. I LOVE being a couple
