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?

Style Feature – Beau & Ashe

8 Apr

Shoes!

Have I gotten your attention? I came across this brand whilst ordering a pair of sneakers on one of my new favorite websites shoedazzle.com

Shoedazzle.com, led by new chief stylist Rachel Zoe (name sound familiar?) is one of the most fabolous show-room style websites catering to fashionable women who love fashion and of course, shoes! Launched in 2009, Shoe Dazzle is dedicated to giving women access to your own unique showroom shaped by your personal style. Don’t have hundreds of dollars to blow on that trendy pair of pumps? No problem. Most of the shoes on Shoedazzle.com are under $60 and feature brands such as Chinese Laundry and of course – Beau & Ashe. I was quickly engaged by Beau & Ashe after setting my eyes on a pair of studded sneakers that I just had to have for the spring. Like any blogger with fashion on the mind, I looked them up and have included some of my favorite picks. Beau & Ashe are extremely new to the shoe game; based out of Los Angeles, B&A draws their inspiration from Bohemian and British Punk styles, mixed with a bit of Cali and Lower East Side New York. Who can guess which pair I’m ordering next?

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 🙂

Ball Out

8 Jul

On Friday.July.6th, the company I work for celebrated the end of their financial year. The annual “Flight Centre Ball” took place at the Carlu downtown at Yonge and College which is a beautiful event “hall” if you will which has housed some phenomenal events along with breathtaking weddings and even fashion shows and events held here in Toronto. My team headed down in style, and had an amazing time. Flight Centre’s employees work extremely hard all year (I can attest) and party just as hard. They spared no expense to show their employees appreciation with numerous  awards, a wonderful dinner and as much alcohol as nearly all 900 of us from across Eastern Canada could handle. An opportunity to get dolled up and have a photo op? Perhaps…. Enjoy

Dress –  Vero Moda (Picked up at M for Mendocino)

Heels – Zara Classic Collection

Bracelet – Forever 21

Clutch – Aldo (old)

OOTD: Training 101

11 Jun

So yesterday I had my first training day at the new job and let me tell you, not much training done just kinda went with the flow. But I had an awesome time, was busy all the time which I love the nonstop atmosphere but didn’t have a chance to grab lunch which won’t happen again! Got to remember although it’s a new job and want to impress and get everything done, it is crucial to get some time for myself. Anyways here’s the outfit:

Heels: Zara

This is my declaration.

Lovelies,

Let me just say my purse obsession is no longer. Probably because I will not settle for anything less than Prada or YSL, even Givenchy for that matter. I’m all about the classics so I will dish the money for a classic piece that will last me a lifetime. Yes, Chanel is on my classic list too but now I’m just getting greedy. Regardless, I’ve found myself in love.. with HEELS. I am truly, undeniably, passionately OBSESSED with heels. I cannot stop looking at all the beautiful heels that are blooming this spring. Check out my current faves that are a) classic b) the current spring trend
