Finding an outfit for every single day is often a drawn-out battle of rummaging, trying, chucking and deciding. Most days I look at my wardrobe and just feel blergh. It's a concoction of selections over the years: the late teen/early university years (i.e. the continuation of awkward appearances whilst finding one's proverbial feet), cheap op… Continue reading five gals for inspiring everyday.
If there’s ever been a style of shoe to make you stop, step back and squint your eyes - questioning their very existence and meaning - it’s the geriatric-inspired mash-up. No one word could describe the part-sandal, part-jogger, part-slipper that’s storming runways and streets. Are they cool? How far is too far in our obsession with… Continue reading the geriatric shoe :: comfort vs. cool.
Amidst a sombre world outlook, a harrowing time for many, Dries Van Noten's 100th show was the breath of life needed to revive our spirits and kick us into optimism mode again. While trends of power women, fur and stripes on stripes were scattered throughout fashion month, none delivered such a positive note. Collections referred… Continue reading dries van noten: our spark of joy.
Quite frankly, it could be. And tracking the daily lewks doesn't seem to be helping. We know my wardrobe has been uncovered as largely monochrome - blah blah blah - but what I've come to realise, an enlightenment that only hit me two days ago ( and one that makes so much SENSE in my… Continue reading is my wardrobe making me depressed?
I have found, yet another, creative / talented girl to be crushing on and admiring. Is there a diagnosis for someone such as me?

I've started thinking that maybe I should document my outfit explorations of 2017 ( likely weekday only - I turn into a bum come the weekend ). A new challenge for me creatively, a visualisation of my daily creative pleasure, and an easy access record of those pairings I love, those that worked, and those… Continue reading this year’s creative challenge.
Let me help you decide on the Christmas outfit of perfection. This month, instead of reliving the awing beauty of just one collection, I thought we'd do a little grouping. I'm feeling a need to deliver the Christmas spirit through outfit choices, because my apartment is lacking in any signs of the holidays ( the… Continue reading christmas outfits of your dreams.
Two important points of reflection for you, my friends. #1. How great is the Canadian tuxedo? The perfect pairing of denim on denim - one that is so daring, so difficult to pull off, that it will only work if you flaunt it. Be confident and everyone will believe you. It's a lesson in boosting… Continue reading anatomy of :: the canadian tuxedo.
We all know I am an incessant list-maker and note-taker. I have notebooks and post-its coming out my ears. There's a very real fear I could wake up in a midst of floating paper, having scattered all my paper notes like confetti, gathering on my bed ( like all those clothes I fail to put… Continue reading reliving :: louis vuitton.
I always find it difficult to settle back in to normal life after time away, especially when that time is spent in an opposite part of the world. Life experiences rarely reflect my own and living conditions differ vastly. But the craziest thing I find is that everyone I meet has a genuine heart, a… Continue reading coming home.
