Pin on Collar – Vintage, Flannel shirt – Express, Cape – Winners, Jeans – Express, Booties – John Fluevog

There is something special about flannel in red, especially  to Canadians. The lumberjack is somewhat of a cultural icon here. Pair a toque and work boots with a flannel and you have the Lumberjack look down. Here, I wanted to add Flannel to a ‘Grown-up’ look. Growing up, I would wear the flannel shirt as a cover-up to my t-shirts. Now, I button up the  Express shirt and pair it with a cape from Winners for the cool holiday season. If you’re looking for well-made, stretchy, high-waisted jeans, visit Express while you pick up a flannel button down. Not only is this pair comfortable, but it looks great with a blazer or a cheeky tank for summer months. On the feet, we keep warm and dry in a pair of John Fluevog‘s. The big industrial zipper adds a nice modern edge to the classic bootie and the best part? You can do all your Christmas shopping in these babies without aching feet. Comfort and style can co-exist!

Out and About: Atlantis Winery

Posted on: Monday, December 8, 2014

Who wouldn’t want to spend an evening with fellow influencers on a party bus to Atlantis Niagara Winery? We were chauffeured to home of hand crafted premium ice wines to see where the magic happens and try the wines with a complimentary meal. Nine, yes, NINE wines were on the menu for tasting along with a haddock fish meal, hand-rolled Bahanian cigars, deserrts and cheeses. It was a pleasure eating among the very same wine presses that delivered such tasty wines. Both Telly and I brought home bottles of 2013 Gewurztraminer Late Harvest, which is a great balance between sweet and dry. Images of our visit below for your viewing pleasure.

Posted on: Friday, November 28, 2014

The red carpet is alive with stunning celebrities and style! We start off with the Hollywood Film Awards which was televised this year for the first time. Although this show is very low key and smaller compared to say, The Golden Globes, its a great show to watch for upcoming trends in Fashion and upcoming films that may appear on the Oscars nomination bill.

Check out our video below for a fun rundown of styles we adored and disliked! Perhaps you may pick up some ideas for all those Christmas and New Year Parties you have planned. Don’t Forget to SUBSCRIBE to our Youtube channel ;)

Sweats Never Looked So Cool

Leather Cap & Leggings with a Hooded Top by KARV & Thigh-High Boots by Aldo

Street Meets Chic! In recent years, I would have to say Rihanna and Beyonce have perfected how this look can work. Without going hard on the wallet, you can achieve this Street Meets Chic look. Canadian brand KARV has some great Athletic fashion pieces that work very well with the basics of your closet. Here I simply paired leather leggings with the top. To bring the ‘fashion’ element, I put on my thigh-high leather boots and topped it all off with a leather baseball cap. All these items are classic pieces that you probably have, in some form, in your closet. I enjoy this look in black and grey, as it looks ready for those fashion parties or casual parties you may want to attend, but throw in color and see where this look can take you!

Fall into a Busy Cardigan

Posted on: Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Cardigan – KARV, Led Zepplin Tank – Winners (cool option here), Jeans – One Tea Spoon (FitzRoy Boutique), Boots -Express

The Boho look can survive through the winter months, even though it originates from sunny California.

Prints, rips and design make up this fun look, so get creative. This fab cardigan from KARV is not only extremely warm, but its graphic patterns make it original and easy to wear. I could have easily styled this with an all-black ensemble and it still would have rocked. Here, I matched the Cardigan up with a summer find, my Led Zepplin Tank Top. Why do a plain T-shirt when you have the allowance to go crazy? I added some wooden bead necklaces to add that rocker edge. Simple gold or silver chains would have worked here as well. To add MORE statement to this bold look, I decided to go with a distressed denim I purchased from FitzRoy Boutique by One Tea Spoon! I love these jeans! I wore these to the 30 Seconds To Mars concert and got major compliments from the Leto Brothers themselves. Yes, Jared Leto and Shannon Leto. Sigh! Anyway, rather than going with black, I when with a beige boot with a relaxed design and added gold bangles to the wrists. Easy Breezy in Winter!

Use those thick knits and mix and match with accessories to create a casual boho winter look to stay fashionable warm this summer.

The Edge Of a Sweater Dress

Posted on: Monday, November 3, 2014

1 DSC_0260 2 DSC_0262 3 DSC_0267 4 DSC_0269 5 DSC_0273 6 DSC_0275

 Dress – Tristan (similar here), First belt – The Bay, Second belt – Old

A Sweater Dress will save your life. This type of dress goes from Work to Play easily with a bit of imagination. Here, I’m giving a quick How To with a swift change in the belt. The dress looks fine on its own with no accessories and a simple heel, but if you want to throw them off a bit at the office or at that conference, add a handsome belt with strong hardware. The dress almost takes on the same vibe as a suit. Afterwards, when going to drinks and maybe a bit of dancing, add a fun embellished belt. Try to find a sweater dress with a bit of a edgy feel. What sold me on this one here is the leather sleeves and the shoulder-pad effect. So rockstar. Belts aren’t your thing? Get creative with your jewelry! Add necklaces and bracelets or huge earrings.

Mellow Yellow Dress

Posted on: Wednesday, October 29, 2014

1 DSC_0250 2 DSC_0252 3 DSC_0257 4 DSC_0260 5 DSC_0265

 Yellow Dress – Similar here, here & here, White Turban – Similar here, Sandals – Aldo (old, but similar here)

Women should try to incorporate Yellow more often. Its a bright color that truly brings sunshine on a cloudy day. Yeah, I know its not a Rock n Roll Bad Ass color, but throw a leather jacket over Yellow and you’re Hot. Here, I didn’t even need to accessorize, thanks to the white sheer overlay on the chest of this dress. I enjoy my curves, so this dress was fun to wear. The design of this dress was inspired by Kim Kardashian’s style and love for curve-loving outfits. To add even more drama, I added a white turban and pulled my hair to the side. I would easily wear this to drinks or dinner. Remember, when you want to show off those curves watch the length of the dress! Midi (below the knee) is the most flattering for the body-con style dress.
