Pointed Toe Perfection


Love at first sight. I've never owned anything like them. They're pointed-toe perfection. 

My obsession over these leather gems began the moment they caught my eye at Winners. I didn't recognize the designer, nor had I ever seen anything like them. They're made by Italian designer, Capezzani, and judging by the price ($$$), I assumed they were either (1) made by a well renowned designer that I apparently have never heard of, or (2) made with some damn good leather. It was the latter.

The Uniform


The all black uniform featuring the most comfortable pair of Jeffrey Campbell over-the-knee boots I picked up from at the Nordstrom Yorkdale opening event last month!

Fall Florals


Loving Fall florals. 
Do you ever have one of those days where you can just open your closet, scan your wardrobe, mentally produce an outfit, and it happens to fit just as you imagined? Today was one of those days. Don't get me wrong, it's a rare occurrence, an anomaly if you will; but it's a satisfying feeling not having to deconstruct my wardrobe and then spend hours organizing every time I get dressed.

Grey Scale


I've been warming up to the idea of working with sunlight in my style shoots. For the larger portion of my blogging career, I firmly opposed direct sunlight and shadows. I'd have to strategically schedule shoots according to time of day and location. While these are still major factors to consider for a successful shoot, I've learned to work with natural lighting, as it's not exactly something that you can control. The results have been largely positive, and I've found the shots to be more natural and vibrant! What do you think?

Mimosas and Manis @ Her Majesty's Pleasure


What better way to spend your mornings than getting pampered and sipping mocktails while doing it. I had the opportunity to experience a gel mani and blow out at Her Majesty's Pleasure and was raving about it for days, trust me, my friends can attest to that... I'm typically a nude-nail-for-all-occasions type of gal, but couldn't pass on the opporunity for a little nail-art action from one of the top nail salons in Toronto. I may or may not have just made up a stat, but they do have an in-house bar serving drinks and lattes during all hours of operation so I'm sure we can all agree that its ranked way up there.
