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! ๐Ÿ™‚
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 – 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

90s Inspired: CLUELESS

11 Jan

Lovelies,

Remember back in the day when Clueless became our high school bible? Where we traded in hottie and gorgeous for Baldwin and Betty? Where whenever we would get offended we’d shriek ‘AS IF’? Just as Cher Horowitz did. Oh yes! Those were the days where I’d imagine my father would purchase a car for me when I was able to get my license and I had too high standards to date high school boys! Haha ohh I always thought of myself as a Cher but my friends said I was Dionne due to my skin tone but I’m Cher at heart. Well ATTENTION all Clueless fans! Wildfox has released their Spring 2013 collection and its been inspired by Clueless!!

Here are a few photos from their lookbook:

20130110-225934.jpg
Cher: Dionne and I were both named after famous singers of the past, who now do infomercials.

20130110-225959.jpg
Cher: She’s my friend because we both know what it’s like for people to be jealous of us.

20130110-230033.jpg
Tai: I could really use some sort of herbal refreshment.
Dionne: Oh, well we do lunch in ten minutes. We don’t have any tea, but we have Coke and stuff.
Tai: No shit. You guys got Coke here?
Dionne: Well, yeah.
Cher: Yeah, this is America.

20130110-230135.jpg
Cher: Do you prefer “fashion victim” or “ensembly challenged”?

20130110-230201.jpg
Tai: Cher, I don’t want to do this anymore. And my buns: they don’t feel nothin’ like steel.

20130110-230218.jpg
Cher: I’ve got an idea. Let’s do a makeover!
Tai: No. No.
Dionne: Oh, c’mon! Let us! Cher’s main thrill in life is a makeover. OK, it gives her a sense of control on a world full of chaos.

20130110-230311.jpg
Cher: So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair – ew – and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so.

20130110-230349.jpg
Cher: Would you call me selfish?
Dionne: No, not to your face.

Not going to lie I’ll probably definitely pick up a couple of pieces from Wildfox! I can’t wait til it hits stores ๐Ÿ™‚

The little things

25 Aug

Hola mi amor’s
This tiny photo op was completely unplanned. My beaux was in town for 2 days and we headed up to Yonge and Lawrence for some brunch. We ended up walking past this park that I’ve been intending to have some pictures taken at for awhile now ( I don’t know how I forgot that we would be and I didn’t plan appropriately ) None the less, I never leave the house without camera in tow, and these babies survived the outcome of my forgetfulness. I’m wearing a few basics that pretty much every girl has in her closet. White linen tee, dark denim and sandals. Lawrence Park is so beautiful. It still shocks me how much I haven’t seen in my own backyard, and this park is a keeper. Well kept, bike and hiking paths, beautiful flowers and trees everywhere, and this beautiful stone staircase! I am pretty smitten with Yonge and Lawrence as an area in itself to be honest. Definitely a permanent photo shoot spot. Where are yours?

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

Do you Shamballa?

14 Apr

20120414-193722.jpg

What do Keri Hilson, Justin Beiber and Karl Lagerfeld have in common? Apparently, apart from being extremely talented, they all are in love with the Shamballa bracelet trend that has been spotted everywhere! I’ve noticed them more on men with the classic black or white encrusted “balls”, however all colors have begun to trend on both men and women.

These powerful Shamballa Bands are meant to symbolize peace, tranquillity, happiness and above all – the Oneness of us all. Who knew? I wasn’t too into it at first, until I found this white and rose gold toned bracelet at…Shoppers Drug Mart! I know! It was extremely random, but there it was in a jewelry case calling my sweet sweet name. I went in for deodorant and left with a great accessory that looks phenom beside my MK watch! It cost me $24. How do you feel about the Shamballa trend?
