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 🙂

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! 🙂

New Year’s Eve? What to wear with K

22 Dec

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” -Oprah Winfrey

Hello all!

I was having a pretty slow night at work, and found myself thinking about my New Year’s Eve plans. Naturally, Julie and I are planning on dancing the year 2012 away and spending the night with our kick ass girlfriends, while toasting champagne in pumps and bold lips. I fly out to New York to spend the holidays with the beau and my family later tonight, and won’t be returning until the 30th, which gives me a day to find the perfect outfit. Now I know what you’re thinking! “What! You don’t have an outfit yet!?” No..I don’t. Listen girls, Christmas was made priority, and I had originally planned on ordering a dress from asos.com, however it wouldn’t have made it here in time; therefore I’m planning on winging it. (Believe me, I am a professional “winger” and I always pull it off beautifully)

Now, if I happen to have time to hit the city and dedicate a few solid hours on finding the perfect cocktail dress whilst in NY, I will take full advantage. However, I do plan on spending a majority of my time at home with my boyfriend and family, in New Jersey as well as Queens and Long Island. Don’t take me for crazy when I say this though, but..I am kind of considering wearing pants for NYE…Haha, I’ve just been so into the men’s wear inspired looks being rocked on the runway, not to mention, most recently on Gwen Stefani on the January cover of Vogue. Plus, might I add that my legs won’t be completely frozen walking out of the club after having a bit too much to drink.(insert flashback of NYE 2012 here…MESS)

gwenvogue

Now I know what I face. I’m not as tall, I’m not as long and lean, and I’m not blonde, but you better believe I can pull off a great red lip and a sequin jacket!

What about this tee and skirt combo? I am in love with the edginess! Some pumps, a necklace and lashes! Yes please!

zaralook3I would LOVE to wear a bold all over print such as this one by Tibi, of course flawlessly pulled off by none other than Olivia.

oliv2

I’m also feeling these 2 looks for NYE. Super chic and streamline, and the shoes do a lot of the talking. I just need a super bold statement necklace to complete these looks.

zaralook1zaralook2Do you think I’m selling out by not wearing a dress? It is going to be 2013 after all. Let me know what you think as well as what you plan on wearing to ring in the new year in the comments

Lots of love

Kathleen

Better early than never…wait

Friends!

Let me start off by apologizing for my absence. I have been pretty sick for around 2 weeks with a terrible cold which then turned into a throat infection. I completely lost my voice and I have been on the road to recovery and back to being myself! It was fate that my voice came back to me, and I was feeling much better just in time for me to celebrate my birthday yesterday. My birthday is actually in December, and to make quite a long story short – I decided last year, after many years of stressful planning, booking time off, and freezing cold nights waiting in line at a nightclub in the middle of December that I was going to celebrate my birthday away from the holiday season this year. Not only is December a very busy time of the year for myself (and everyone I know), but it’s proven to be a very expensive one as well. My beau’s birthday is on December.4th followed by mine on the 10th, and Christmas is not too far behind after that.

I spent some time searching for the perfect venue to have dinner with some of my closest friends at Local Restaurant & Lounge was the perfect choice. The atmosphere was exactly what I had envisioned with beautiful lighting, classic, clean design, mixed with elements such as a brick wall backdrop, leather seating and dark wooden fixtures. The menu had a great, simple selection that catered to every taste; might I add that the food was absolutely delicious. (J and I had the steak!) Shortly after midnight, the dinner tables are cleared out and made way for a dancefloor. Before our eyes, this restaurant turned into one of the best “clubs” we had ever been to together. The music was amazing, the crowd was eclectic with everyone from young professionals, to your industry folk who drop in for a bottle of grey goose, down to your up and coming 20 somethings who frequent Local on a Saturday night for a good time. It was definitely a birthday to remember and a spot I plan to revisit!

3 Wants, 2 Needs, 1 Lust

4 Oct

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 😉

20121004-185510.jpg

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!

20121004-190232.jpg

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:

20121004-190842.jpg

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?

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?

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?
