Back to Black

Hey friends! I’d like to begin by saying that these are probably some of my favourite shots taken by Joanna Dass (joannadass.com). You can never go wrong with an all black attire. I always go back to black. I love this dress, not because its light and versatile, but because it has pockets!! I love pockets. The boots that I’m wearing are a new obsession. Months ago I probably wouldn’t have even given these boots a second look because I can’t do heels. However, as I’m getting to an age where heels are becoming more appealing, I decided that these boots would be a great “step”. They’re called “sock boots” and very in season. I would love a brown pair, maybe a suede pair, I don’t know ha-ha. Maybe one pair is enough..  I’ve finally worked them in so I’ve been wearing them quite a lot! With denim, with skirts, and of course, with dresses. Everything I’m wearing is from Topshop (go figure). Now take a look at these pictures!!!!!!!AB_6 AB_7  AB_9 ABS_-37     ABS_-42  ABS_-44    ABS_-48

You’re So Classic

Happy Easter Sunday everybody! Today I have another outfit post. Simple but full of classics! Your classic black skinnies and a classic white button-up! I think with a nice pair of shoes (like my Spring booties) and a nice purse, this outfit is perfect for everyday! An outfit like this is perfect to gravitate to because it’s chic and effortless. I usually think of outfits like this when I have no idea what to wear but want to seem like I tried a little. I particularly wore this outfit the day before the long weekend! I’m home right now and reunited with my family!! Unfortunately I’ll be on my way back later today, but it was a nice little escape from the stress of exams and assignments that I’m dealing with back in Toronto. I hope all of you are enjoying the weekend with your loved ones! Here’s a better look at my outfit:

March Favourites 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 preset

I’m trying a different kind of post today. Let me know if you guys like it! I’ve decided to create a monthly post dedicated to everything that I’ve been loving that month. These are the things that I have been loving throughout the month of March! Let’s begin with the gray sleeveless vest/jacket. Not quite a vest, not quite a jacket. It’s bigger than your average vest but unlike your typical jacket, it has no sleeves! I’ve been throwing it on over a number of different outfits this month. It’s really versatile and I highly recommend getting one if it suits your style! My second favourite is Gossip Girl. I’ve owned every season for a while now but I’ve never watched all of them consecutively! This month I took on the challenge. Starting from the beginning, I watched every single episode (I actually just finished the final episode yesterday lol). Seriously, who does not love a little GG? Blair and Chuck? Don’t even get me started! There’s so much to love about the show and if you’ve never watched it before (and I really how you have!!), YOU’RE TOTALLY MISSING OUT. My next favourite is a book I borrowed from my boyfriend’s mom. It was such a good read! I was so addicted that I could not put it down. I just recently recommended it to my sister and she read the first chapter then bought it herself! I can’t really summarize books without getting so excited that I basically ruin it for you. I WILL say that it is a very eye-opening memoir. If you can only read one memoir this year, make it this one! My next favourite is this cute mug from Anthropologie with my initial on it. It’s adorable, what else is there to say? For a while, maybe since the beginning of Fall last year, I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of black ankle boots. Ones that go perfectly with any outfit and can be easily incorporated from season to season. I don’t want to jinx anything, but I think I’ve found the ones. This pair from Boohoo has been on my feet a lot throughout the month of March and I am so happy I purchased them! I can picture wearing them in the summer with denim shorts and a flowy tank ;D They’re perfect! My last two favourites are these bracelets from Aldo and two nail polishes that I have been gravitating the most towards. I began my Aldo bracelet addiction with the purchase/donation I made to support the fight against aids/HIV. They were so colorful that they reminded me of the bracelets I used to stack during the summer.  This made me go back to Aldo and buy more colorful bracelets. I’m not sure if “arm candy” is still a thing, but I enjoy seeing the color on my wrist! I may not go overboard but I will most definitely sport these bracelets more often in the months to come! My final favourites are the two nail polishes that I have been loving for the month of March. I didn’t gravitate towards color, so I apologize for that. Nothing special really happened in the nail department for me. I wore a lot of black and a lot of nude. My favourite black nail polish is Revlon’s “Knock Out”. My favourite nude nail polish is Essie’s “Topless and Barefoot”.

So there you have it! My favourite goodies for the month of March! If you liked this sort of post, let me know so I can start working on my favourites for April! ;D

Until next time!! xx

T.G.I.F.

Friday. What’s not to love! No class, it’s the beginning of the weekend, and I have the time to create my first blog post! I’m new to the world of fashion blogs, but I’d like to formally introduce myself…

Hi! My name is Alannah. I live in Toronto and I’m in my third year of college where I’m studying Fashion Management. I snort when I laugh, I’m short, I’m half Filipino, half Canadian, and I have a weird obsession with kittens at the moment (I WANT ONE SO BAD). That’s basically all you need to know, but if you would like to know more about me, I plan on creating an ‘About Me’ page in the near future (haha).

Today’s post is my outfit that I wore on my day off. I went out with my boyfriend, ate some brunch, and went for a walk on campus near the lakeshore.

For my outfit, I wore a matching set that I purchased from Forever21. I love matching sets/separates. Not only are they stylish and trendy, but they’re easy! I feel like you don’t have to think about it as much as you would with a regular outfit. Actually, you really don’t have to think about it at all (lol)! To go with this set, I wore my new Zara booties with gorgeous zipper and buckle detailing. I’m in love with them. I find the chunky look of them absolutely gorgeous! I was very minimal with my accessories today because I felt like the dress spoke for itself, as well as my boots. For a bag I used this faux leather tote that I also bought from Forever21. I certainly didn’t need to carry such a big bag, but for some strange reason I have never thought to add a small black purse to my wardrobe. Isn’t it kind of essential? Consider it added to my wishlist, and I will most definitely let you know when I find one ;D
