Club Monaco is still strong in the retail game, bringing its customers luxe fashion wear to malls and boutiques through Canada. I can tell you that I’ve fallen back in love with the brand after checking out what is to come for Fall Winter 2015. Us Canadians love our layering, our furs, our boots and leathers. Club Monaco has provided all and more! The brand has truly made themselves a lifestyle brand, a lifestyle we all want a piece of. Sure the price point isn’t for your everyday fix, but why not treat yourself. Check out our picture heavy post below and start shopping CM in August to get up close and personal with these fresh pieces.

BESTIVAL Toronto: Music Fest Highlights!

Posted on: Thursday, June 25, 2015

Coming from across the pond, The United Kingdom’s Festival BESTIVAL has landed in Toronto again, bringing Peace, Love, Joy and good freakin’ music. What makes this two-day Festival unique is its location. The festival is held on Toronto Island, so you have to boat over to enjoy the musical fun. Even with our VIP access waiting on the boats could be a tad annoying, but the weather was perfect, so we made the best of it. Highlight performers would probably be Florence and The Machine, Banks and NAS. Other than music, the Festival offered a Costume Parade, a Bollywood inspired stage for the House and EDM fans, a Big Top Tent for partying in the shade and the main stage. The rainy days we had prior made for some nice muddy spots so combat boots and rain boots were on full display. If you haven’t gone to this festival before, I would highly suggest checking it out next year. Its an excuse to wear ANYTHING you want and party in a casual setting, meet new people and dance like no one is watching.

FIELD TRIP Music & Arts 2015: Pictures

Posted on: Tuesday, June 23, 2015

We took in the sights and sounds of FIELD TRIP 2015 this month with high school mates who too enjoy music. The fact is, the four of us were all dedicated musical students involved in the band, drama and music activities, so it was nice listening to music with others that appreciate music as much as we do.

What makes this music festival so unique is the freedom to bring your kids and really make it a family focused festival. People from all background descended upon Fort York in Toronto to see the likes of  Alabama Shakes, Sharon & Bram, De La Soul, The Bell Game, The War On Drugs, From Jamaica to Toronto and more. This is a great festival to watch for next year. The mix of music was amazing and for the kiddies, there is so much to do including hula-hopping and day camp activities. Technically, we weren’t working this festival. It was a weekend off for us so we weren’t taking mad pictures. We have to thank PALLADIUM BOOTS for the complimentary tickets! See the few images we did take below and as always, follow Telly (@tellyhercastle) and I (@carciahercastle) on Instagram so you can see what we’re up to when we’re not sitting around our computers blogging.

Fitting In That Spring Time Leather!

I recently checked out EXPRESS and found too many cool items that just worked together! Everyone has a certain opinion on leggings and their place in wardrobe. For me, I have always likened my style to that of a RockStar or PopStar. I’m an eccentric! What I choose to do with my wardrobe may not suit your choices, but Fashion all falls back on Lifestyle. These Floral leggings are heavy, very much like pants. To add the edge factor, I threw on this Leather Quilted Patch Moto Jacket from Express! It’s weighty, its detailed with zippers and its longer in length so it gives great coverage. Since we’re going there, might as well through in studded pumps and a floral bag with a bit of pink! I would totally wear this on a chilly Spring night to dinner or a third date type situation.

Worth stopping by EXPRESS is all I’m sayin’. Wink-Wink.

Musically Crushing: TAME IMPALA ‘Cause I’m A Man’

Posted on: Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Tame Impala, Australia, Rock Band, cause i'm a man, Perth, psychedelic, rock, Alternative Rock Band,

Name: Tame Impala (@tameimpala)

Song we’re crushing on: Casue I’m a Man

Why should you care:  To be honest, the song is too cool to just push aside.  Very 70′s sounding but still very modern, We wonder if Prince had anything to do with this cause it sounds like a song he would of done. Its slow, so for all my dancealohics, you wont be able to really get down, but it’s nice to escape. The music is so hypnotic and  free flowing; you can close your eyes and drift off to your own utopia and peaceful bliss. The best part is that the lyrics are as beautiful as the music. It seems that the guy is in deep trouble with his girlfriend/wife and she’s demanding an answer for his actions. Not being able to beat around the bush he just flat out says  “Cause I’m a Man”. Being so indulged with music and songwriting, I have to say the song was beautifully written. Its straight forward  and to the point; It’s about a man telling the truth, that’s all.  As for the video, its interesting, kinda reminds me of an early version of  screen savers for your computer. Anyway, watch for yourself and tell us what you think. If you have a chance go head and read the lyrics.

Aside from the flip flops, these are nice relaxing outfits.

Styling Up PALLADIUM BOOTS

Posted on: Monday, June 8, 2015

palladium, boots, shoes, European shoes, denim shoes, rings, flats,

It’s hard to believe that a aircraft tire manufacture is responsible for this fashionable footwear line known as Palladium Boots. Aviation is truly important! After World War ll aircraft tires decreased, Palladium used its canvas and rubber resources to open its first footwear factory in Pont-de-Chéruy, France. Palladium used their expertise to make boots that were as hard wearing as their tires. The boots were so comfortable and durable that they were adopted by the French Foreign Legion. With such a rich history, you have to appreciate the work behind Palladium Boots. We decided to style up our own pairs in our personal style preference to show you how easy it is to wear Palladium’s daily!
