Converse: Shoes Are Boring. Wear Sneakers!

Posted on: Tuesday, August 19, 2014

If one where to ask me to name the strongest fashion brands in history, I would mention Converse as one those brands. This sneaker has never had a dull moment in the market. Many people can’t do with just one pair of converse and end up collecting the sneaker. Name another brand of sneaker that you can wear with your prom or wedding dress? Converse has that quirky x-factor that allows for unusual pairings. Recently, Converse hosted a fun preview of what is in store and to come for the brand and we have some pictures for you. Check them out below!

Cocktails with CONAIR

Posted on: Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Always ahead of the hair game, CONAIR shows off a revolutionary hair-blow dryer that makes hair silky and bouncy within 7 minutes. 3Q Styling Tool is the latest from the hair care brand who claims that the dryer is  Quick, Quiet, Quality.

We saw the tool put to the test when Conair’s, Andrea Sampson (Director of Education) demonstrated by blow drying a model’s hair while singing and dancing to a fun and upbeat soundtrack. Not only did Andrea finish the job before the 7 minute mark, but she had enough time to throw in some air guitar action. Based on the demo, you cannot deny the quality of the product. The dryer is extremely light-weight, making it easy for us consumers who seem to fumble with hair tools.

Most enjoyable photo corner ever!

So, Have You Seen What Jared Leto’s Been Wearing on Stage Lately?

Posted on: Tuesday, August 12, 2014

If you are told over and over again that you resemble a person, do you subconsciously take on the traits of that person? Or do you take it as an opportunity to have some fun and purposely take on the traits of that person?

I’m talking about Jared Leto right now. Have you seen what he’s been wearing on Stage Lately?

The Internet’s boyfriend gave up on shaving after his successful award season run. I get it, he was hairless and clean shaven for a long time, bringing Dallas Buyer’s Club transsexual character Rayon to life. The man wanted to give his face a break. But, the more his beard and hair grew, the more he started to resemble one of the most important figures of time, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Not Yeezus, but Jesus.

You cannot deny the resemblance between the historical portraits of Jesus and hottie Jared. Haven’t you seen those adorable Instagram photos of Jared Leto with Faux Jesus? Cute right?

It was truly cute, until I saw this.

Yes, that is Jared Leto on tour overseas and in the U.S. with 30 Seconds To Mars . I need to know who designed these costumes, but regardless of the designer, what is this exactly? I call it New-Age Modern RockStar Jesus meets Raffi. If you are a Jared Leto supporter, you will know that Jared is not afraid of the Man Skirt, the 1980’s hair do’s or the bed-slippers out in public look. He’s an artist and he doesn’t need to clock in at the office every day, but I can’t help but wonder if WE have created a little monster who entertains the Jesus thing.

Kanye ‘Yeezus’ West has nothing on Jared when it comes to emulating the son of God. Mr. Leto has the entire look down. And he’s so damn likeable and cute too.

I’m so captivated with this look that I’d go to the concert JUST to see the wardrobe racks.

All hail Jesus-Chic.

Ah Jared, Father Jesus must be proud to know that his fashion sense still charms the world today. I have to wonder what will happen once Jared gets too itchy and shaves it all off? Will we all stay on the bandwagon?

Bohten Eyewear – Summer Launch

Posted on: Monday, August 11, 2014

Drawing inspiration from his Ghanaian roots and his love for nature, eyewear designer and founder of Bohten, Nana Boateng Osei has created lightweight, comfortable, zero-waste sunglasses made out of reclaimed wood from West Africa. The product is constructed and designed here in Canada.

Bohten’s initiative is clear, to reuse environmental reclaimed material (barley, wheat, straw, stone) to design contemporary eyeglasses. Because the materials used are so unusual, the design is simple and minimalistic. Late last month, Bohten hosted guests, including camera’s from The Dragon’s Den, to their first Toronto fashion show. The show featured 5 looks matched with jewelry by POSH. There is no need to ask questions about which pairs are for the ladies or gents. I would consider each pair as unisex and very easy to wear with just about any outfit. See for yourself with images below.

Addition Elle’s Take on the Modern Punk Movement

Posted on: Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Plaid. The Plaid print is the fabric language of the punk movement, back then, reserved only for the rockers and rocker muses who inspired the music. Now, Plaid is getting love from the runways and the consumer who wants to wear it out and about, even to the office! Throw in the sporty Jersey trend and you are on point for fall. Check out how Addition Elle has taken on the famous trend look. I’ll say it now, we LOVE it.
