Grey Days in Autumn

Grey days in Autumn

ONLY short dress, 38 CAD / Boohoo skater dress, 27 CAD / Uniqlo dress, 72 CAD / Topshop sweater dress, 100 CAD / Pocket dress, 285 CAD

Our style gets darker as the days get shorter. Maybe we feel a little dreary, maybe we just like to mix in darker hues into our looks. But come autumn you see richer darker colors. I’ve always thought you can still wear bright tones even in the dead of winter but I can’t help gravitating towards grey when autumn approaches. It’s just such a versatile color.

A grey colored dress can be added to bright red heels to give you a pop of color. Grey lets you add colorful statement accessories without looking too overdone.

The Nora Dress from Toast shows us that grey doesn’t have to be boring and drab. I love the Rose print incorporated into the wool; perfect for fall.

Grey days don’t have to be any less stylish. There’s nothing wrong with a little less color.

To add to your grey skies day, here’s an autumn dark tune from the neighborhood

Style Must Have: skinny black trousers

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What does one wear in the South of France? That’s the challenging question I had to answer for myself while there. Before leaving on the trip I had decided myself on buying a pair of black pants. You must be thinking, “can’t you buy black pants in Canada?” Well, no. Not the one’s I was looking for. I call them “Paris pants,” as I had seen them on virtually every girl during Paris Fashion week a few years back, and convinced myself that they were still in fashion. Turns out my fashion radar was bang on because while in Nice, Monaco, and Lyon I saw them on plenty of stylish girls. I must have spent half my time in Monaco looking for a pair of these glorious must have trousers, but it was worth it when I finally found them in United Colors  of Benetton.

So what makes these pants a style necessity? They are classic. They can be seen on women as early as the 1950s and have stayed pretty close to the original style since then, making them a timeless garment, much like the pencil skirt. They look good on everyone. Not one girl looked bad in the classic black trouser. It may be why they were seen all over fashion week; girls with various body shapes, height and ages could confidently wear them knowing they looked chic. They can easily be dressed up or down. There is nothing better than a versatile garment. If you need to slip on something quick to run an errand these pants work, but they’re also perfect for days when you want to look super put together. Finally, it’s ok if these pants look a little short or cropped on; they’re not supposed to be long. This is perfect for those like myself who have long legs and sometimes have pants looking awkwardly short on us.

The french have it right when it comes to building a wardrobe with staple pieces. United Colors of Benetton had a good selection of “Paris Trousers” (not the real name, it’s what I call them. Don’t go in a store asking for them; no one will know what you mean :P). But you can probably find them else where as well.

Wishlist: Summer Bustier


Blame Kelly Taylor for this new fashion must have obsession of mine. Kelly Taylor was a character on the original series of Beverly Hills 90210. She’s portrayed as a stuck up spoiled brat with a lot of money to spend. Now, for the most part I never really found myself drawn to Kelly’s outfit choices. I preferred Donna Martin’s (the one with the hat). But in one episode, Kelly sports a white crop bustier top that I simply adored. I love bustiers in general and on my summer wishlist are lace and denim bustiers. Not only are bustiers or bra tops very popular this season but a lace bustier is a staple for a lady’s wardrobe. The outfit possibilities are endless. According to her friend Brenda (plaid shirt), Kelly had spent a fortune on her bustier and it seems times haven’t changed. Finding an affordable stylish bustier has been next to impossible. The offline shops in my area either don’t have them or they don’t even know what I’m talking to about; the online stores rarely have my size.

At first, I was only looking for a lace bustier. I wasn’t so keen on the floral or spadex ones they have donned on the mannequins this season. But I was lucky enough to find a beautiful lace skirt that would look perfect with a denim bustier and suddenly the hunt for a denim one was on. Then I found myself watching 90210 on a sick day and I couldn’t get Kelly’s top out of my head. “I Need One!” I said to myself, and before long I was madly hunting for something that would make me look like Kelly’s new bff.


The white lace one featured is exactly what I’m looking for…$100 less. I was lucky enough to find a denim Kelly Taylor like bustier on Aliexpress, which I plan to feature once it arrives. Have you ever watched a show and dreamed about owning the outfits?

Where to get Phytoceramides in Canada

phytoceramidesA male model wisely advised me to take care of my skin in my twenties because it will be be my skin in my forties. I think there’s a misconception among young people that they don’t need to worry about their skin or concern themselves with things like anti-ageing or keeping their skin looking young. But the fact is, nobody’s skin stays “young” forever. When you’re twenty you may not consider what products you can invest in to help you maintain your youth or slow down your skin’s ageing process but nearly every woman I’ve met over 35 begins to look for ways to get back their skin’s youth and these days men are also joining in as they try to avoid the appearance of growing older. Now, I’m not saying there is anything wrong with ageing and no your skin does not have to look “forever 21” but healthy looking skin boosts your confidence. Also, taking care of your skin is a healthy habit to get into.

There are a lot of products on the market, but one of the most talked about and effective is phytoceramide. What is phytoceramide? Ceramides are things we naturally have in our skin, but lose as we age. The loss of ceramides causes you to lose that plumpness and youthfulness that you have in your skin when you’re younger. The idea of ceramide supplements is not new. They have been in topical solutions and have been used in parts of Asia for years. Now however, the FDA has approved phytoceramides in Canada. Phyto means it’s a plant derivitive. It’s made into a supplement that puts it back into your skin and helps to hydrate the skin from the inside out. Many Doctors, even Doctor Oz, highly recommend taking phytocermaides for your skin’s health.

You may be thinking, great where can I get?! Because those were my thoughts when I learned about the benefits of this little supplement. not only carries the supplement they have created a better formula that helps your skin from both the inside and outside. They offer a Revitol Phytoceramides that is now toted as the best anti-aging cream. Revitol contains key ingredients that include Matrixyl and Hyaluronic acid, together they work at penetrating deep into the skin to make it firm it and give it a youthful glow. The phytoceramides and revitol duo that can be found at give you a facelift without the pain or cost of seeing a plastic surgeon. The website offers a 90 day money back guarantee and the product has rave review from customers.

The product offers dramatic results on deep wrinkles, so if you have been battling with wrinkle creams, or know someone that has this will finally resolve the problem. You can visit the website today to get more information and ask for a trial.

Find Qaulity Accessories at Wholesale Prices at JewelryBund

Untitled #246

What’s the fastest way to change your outfit without actually changing your outfit? Accessorize. When I was doing my little black dress challenge, I learned that adding some jewelry or a cute scarf could instantly deceive others into thinking I was wearing a different a dress. Accessories also help to make your wardrobe versatile. If there’s one thing chic women have in common, it’s their ability to accessorize. For a while, I didn’t add too many accessories to my wardrobe because I felt they were expensive. I’d see a girl with a lovely necklace tying her look together and feel I couldn’t afford something similar. That was until I found out about is an online wholesale accessory shop that has a plethora of options to help you accessorize your outfits. On the site you’ll find earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and even hair accessories all at affordable and wholesale prices.

I’m someone who loves wholesale supply sites. It not only lets you find great items for less, they ship right to your door. You can save 50-85 percent on quality jewelry by shopping with They are even willing to price match. If you find a company offering a better deal than theirs you can simply email or live chat them and they will offer you a lower price. There are not a lot of wholesale accessory shops that are willing to do that.

Another thing I like about is they stand by their customer service and allow the customers to get in touch with a real person should they need to. After all, the most important aspect of business is customer service. It’s one thing to get a great deal on an item, but what happens when you need support. Suddenly, that great price doesn’t seem worth it if you’re left without answers to your questions.

The only thing I didn’t like about the site is that I was not able to find the shipping price prior to ordering. I like to have an idea of how much my entire order is going to cost me, but I overlooked this minor flaw because the prices were amazing. A girl can buy enough accessories to wear the same dress all month and have no one notice.

There is so much to choose from that one can get overwhelmed, but the site is very easy to navigate and well organized. One of the pieces I immediately gravitated towards was the waterdrope style necklace. I love statement necklaces, and at less than $3.00 how can any girl pass it up.


I get crazy over rings, so it was no surprise to me that I overfilled my cart with several from the site. has some of the loveliest and most unique rings I’ve seen.

If you are looking for an affordable quick way to spice up your outfits, I highly recommend visiting jewelrybund. They have an expansive collection of accessories at wholesale prices.

Kate Dioneda Brings You The Feminine Edge

Bold statement prints and embellishments, beautiful feminine cuts, trendy textures, classic and timeless designs–all this describes my new favorite collection by Kate Dioneda. If all my style personas went shopping together, they could all easily find the right piece to create the perfect look thanks to this web boutique. Kate Dioneda is a newly launched online store that ships anywhere. But it’s more than just another webshop stocked with clothes; it’s a concept that is created by a designer who understands that women have multiple sides and enjoy portraying them through their clothing.

The site reads, “It is fashion and you… and your ‘other’ you,” and in many ways I agree with this. While no woman is solely her sense of style, we do use fashion as means of expressing and communicating how we want to feel and the “type” of woman we want to be perceived as. Personally, I love looks that merge the essence of femininity with the strength of a woman. Thus, it was no surprise to me that I connected with the designer’s mindset and fell in love with the clothing. The clothes allow you to live simultaneously within the stylistic realm of total feminine and boldly edgy–thus creating the feminine edge. As someone who often can’t decide what kind of woman I want to be on any day, I often opt for styles that let me exhibit both my “sides.” I believe a lot of women can relate, as many seek out clothes that make a statement without compromising their feminine charm.

There is a flow and unity to the collection that makes it easy to envision oneself in them. They seem to tell a story. It’s a story about a multifaceted woman who doesn’t let any part of her dominate. Each piece adds to the story, while telling its own personal tale in the process. I’ve yet to see a collection that looked so unified but catered to so many different types of styles. Rock, punk, retro, glam, classic, modern, whatever your style preference, Kate Dioneda has managed to create pieces that can be distinctly worked into various wardrobes.

What’s more, this online boutique is made-to-order. In an age of mass production and low quality fashion, it’s lovely to find a designer that still believes in the personal touch and bringing customers the highest quality.

I want to own this entire collection. It speaks to me as woman–a fashionably diverse woman.


■ Composition No. 1

shirt Half Sleeves White Crop Top

Half sleeves and a feminine jewel neckline adds an unexpected modern edge and a sultry dimension to this fitting, cotton-stretch white crop top for that all season pairing piece.

Make the ultimate fashion statement with this stunning, head-turning piece that also reveals one’s sublime femininity. Unrestrained embellishment of iridescent sequins was used to make this tailor-cut power-shoulder jacket with long sleeves, slim lapels and hip falling hem. This evening-ready blazer is perfect to finish off any party outfit.

top Sleeveless Chiffon Wrap Blouse

A delicate, lightweight, sheer chiffon sleeveless wrap blouse, designed with a dramatic plunging neckline detail for that glam, party vibe, pure elegance, or that uber-feminine look.

bottom Black Sequin Mini Shorts

Want: Denim Overall Shorts

Denim Overalls

While walking in the mall, I caught sight of a pair of denim overall shorts that seemed to beckoning me over. The ones I saw were similar to the first pair, in terms of color but the style were closer in comparison to the last one in this post. Alas, the store was sold out in my size and I left feeling almost mocked by the overalls. It did remind however, of how much I adore overall shorts. They can be the perfect casual throw ons for spring and summer. They’re great for lounging around in a lawn chair with a good book, or going out with friends for junk food and icecream. Overall shorts make me embrace summer.

With the right accessories, you can take a plain pair of denim overalls and turn them into something fit for a fashionista. I was originally going to feature just the middle outfit, but I decided to create two more due to the fact that there are so many versions of denim overall shorts out now and it’s interesting to see the kinds of looks you can create with them.

White Skinny Jeans

white jeans

Is it just me or are white skinny jeans a thing this season? Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I want a pair. Yes, I definitely think I want a pair. Truth be told, white always made me nervous in my youth. I wouldn’t be caught dead in strictly white jeans because I’d be dead if I got them dirty. Thus, I always stuck to darker colors when it came to jeans. But I’ve gotten over my fear and embraced the color. Perhaps the thing I love about white skinny jeans is the variety that can be found this season. There is something for every kind of fashionista. Whether you want to rock the punk rock look, or are looking to be more clean cut and sophisticated, there’s a pair of white denim for the occasion.

As a lace lover, I can’t help but to have a bit of a crush on the lace detailed capri stretch denim. And the Dr Denim Plenty Jeans are the perfect classic white skinnies. This spring, I think I’ll live adventurously and get me a pair of white denim.

Pining for Pink Lace

Pink Lace

Maybe it’s because I’m a partial girly girl, but I love the color pink. The ultra feminine color is perfect for springtime. The only thing that can make it even more girlish is to match it with lace, as seen in the clothes above. I love the marriage of the two. There is something so sweet and innocent looking about pink lace. Yet, it’s also very sexy.

The darker pink hue used in the dress is hot but it’s juxtaposed by sweet scallop edges that make the skirt practically scream “I’m a lady.”

I notice that in most of the garments above, flowers were chosen. This makes them seem ever more distinctly feminine.

When I look at each piece, I imagine myself taking a stroll in a park full of cherry blossoms and feeling unapologetically girly.
