Style Feature – Kerry Washington

9 May

kerrywjuneelleI fell in love with Kerry Washington years ago when she played Chenille in the infamous movie (still one of my absolute favorites, as corny as it is to watch years later) “Save the Last Dance” – Who else LOVES this movie? I feel like it was one of the coolest movies around for awhile, no? Or was that just me? Remember the drama with her and Nikki in the club? Nikki was straight up hating, and Chenille was the cool friend defending Sara. I could literally go on and on with this movie, but I digress. Kerry is also well known for her role alongside Jamie Foxx in the movie “Ray” and the award winning film “The Last King Of Scotland”chenille1
There is just something about the innocence in Kerry Washington’s face that made me so eager to know more about her. Kerry is originally from the Bronx, and actually grew up in the same neighbourhood as Jennifer Lopez (crazy, huh?) Kerry’s style is definitely up my alley. She’s no stranger to the red-carpet or the best dressed list, with some of my favorite looks being at the Oscar’s ’13 in Miu Miu, and more recently the Met Gala just a few days ago in custom Vera Wang.

Currently starring in the HIT political drama series “Scandal” as Olivia Pope, and proud owner of an Oscar for best supporting actress in Quentin Tarantino’s film “Django Unchained” – this girl is living out her dreams, and is an ultimate inspiration for not just actresses, but all women to shoot for the stars, to be kind and positive, and of course to work hard. Kerry Washington’s newest film “Peeples”, a comedy, is set to release this Friday.May.10th alongside her co-star Craig Robinson.

In the June issue of Elle hitting shelves on May.21st) Kerry opens up about settling into being the star she’s always dreamed of being. With a grain of salt, she remains humble and admits that when she as a girl, she was the “kooky theater kid, silly, goofy and academic” and she claims that she feels like “the luckiest broad in Hollywood right now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie- I don’t get to ask for more.”

In this issue, Kerry is rocking some beautiful pieces by Tom Ford, Balmain, Giambattista Valli, and Giorgio Armani. I cannot wait to pick it up. Are you a fan of Kerry Washington? Let me know what you think of the issue!

Gala Celebration

9 Apr

Lovelies,

I had the pleasure of attending the UFE Gala which celebrates all accountants who have passed their UFE exam and achieved their CA (chartered accountancy). My best friend Lori passed and had asked me to be her plus one! I was honoured! It was such a great night, meeting new people, eating great food and they also had a band perform! It was glamorous to say the least! I honestly wish I had more formal nights to dress up for! They’re so much fun 🙂

Ps. Are you all loving my extensions? Think I’m going to cut a few inches off, what do you think?

J & K meet OscarPRgirl Erika Bearman

5 Apr
Good morning fashionistas!
The both of us were blessed enough to have the opportunity to meet Erika Bearman aka OscarPRGirl live and in person at her personal appearance this past Tuesday at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St. Both of us are raving fans of Erika and love pretty much everything she does. Erika started off OscarPRgirl when she was approached by CEO Alex Bolen about her blog! They enjoyed the content and thought with social media becoming a strong communication tool, they pitched the idea to Oscar and he loved it, which led to her landing the role of OscarPRgirl.
Erika discussed everything from the social media world and her position as PR director, to all her infamous ‘selfie’ photos wearing Oscar gowns!
Did you know that as the PR director of Oscar de la Renta she receives a clothing package as part of her salary? She even mentioned how Oscar keeps her in check cause all sample pieces are a 24 waist! Haha.
She was so easy going, honest, really approachable and as stunning in person as she is in photos! 🙂
We not only saw her at the event but twice after that! We definitely regret not asking her to go for a drink and continue our conversation from the event. We were cut short because we were truly just having a conversation with her and took a little more time than we expected! (Sorry girls!). We could have talked for hours!
Here are some photos from the event!

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

4 Apr

It’s our 2nd day at Toronto Fashion Week! We were so excited to hit the tents again, and even more excited to see one of the most anticipated shows of the season – Pavoni Fall 2013. Here’s a bit of a lowdown on Pavoni, for those who just aren’t too familiar with the brand. Pavoni is a fairly new kid to the couture fashion block. Think – Luxe, sophisticated, elegant, sexy, intricate, lace, sheer, embellishment, ballroom, glitter, jeweled, classic, unique..we can go on, but these are just some of the words that come to mind when we think of some of the pieces that Pavoni has created. Absolutely unreal.

Pavoni was an incredible and classic catwalk scene. We definitely wish we had a number of Gala events to attend so we have an excuse to own these beautiful gowns. Hopefully Holt Renfrew will have a trunk show soon so we can see these gowns in person! And maybe try on for fun? 😉

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 🙂

Boyfriend Jean Obsesed

27 Mar

Friends,

I’m well aware that this isn’t a new trend, but I am loving it with a whole new appreciation this time around. I love laid back styles while still looking chic as ever. The boyfriend jean – in my opinion – is the epitome of that. Especially in these cooler times while we wait for the Spring and Summer season to bless us with warmth. There is a perfect boyfriend jean out there for everyone, it just takes a bit of searching and a bit of an open mind. Boyfriend jeans with a loose tee, and Oxford shoes or sneakers are perfect for running errands, throw on some pumps, switch out the top, and you’re ready for drinks with the girls. How do you style your boyfriend jeans?

Outfit of the day: Winter be gone!

18 Mar

Hey lovelies!!

Hope you are all doing fabulous! Aren’t you excited for this snow to be finally gone? I cannot wait to stop wearing my coat and show off all the spring styles that are currently being kept in the corner of my closet haha. I try wearing it out time to time but I end up getting so cold plus I get the ol’ “isn’t it too cold for you to be wearing that?” Ha! Anyways, darlings now that hibernation season is coming to an end I am so ecstatic to get the fun colours out and finally be able to wear a flat or two outside.

Talk soon! 🙂

Jennifer Lawrence for Dior

13 Mar

Hello fashion friends!

I (K) am a huge fan of Jennifer Lawrence. This girl is a star, and believe me when I say that we are going to be seeing a lot of her not only this year, but in the years to come. She is an absolutely phenomenal actress, with her feet in not 1, but 2 multi million dollar productions; The Hunger Games and the well-known X-Men series. Not to mention her latest Oscar-winning performance in Silver Lining’s Playbook alongside Bradley Cooper. At 22 years young, this girl is killing it! It was no wonder Dior absolutely had to have her as the newest face of Dior. She’s young, independent, strong, motivated and fashionable. The innocence in Jennifer’s face made her the ideal candidate for photographer Willy Vanderperre to represent the strong femininity of Dior.

As beautiful as the black and white photos are, I’m personally in favor of the color. I just love the flush in her cheeks, and those beautiful eyes. Of course, the purse tends to make a bit of a statement as well 😉

“Dior represents beauty and strength in women..and..that’s how I feel when I’m wearing his clothes, it just, makes you feel so confident.” – Jennifer Lawrence
