Coin Laundry

Good morning!! I’m back with another outfit post! Hurrah! Here’s a funny story: We had a HECK OF A LOT of laundry to do during this past week (and you really don’t want me to get further into it.. *bed bugs from the apartment upstairs* HA), so I decided to get my roommate to take some pictures while we were waiting for everything to finish at the laundromat. Where were these photos taken? Yeah, they’re from directly behind the laundromat. Very classy lol.

Guyyyyss. This is what my Summer has come to. Pictures at a laundromat because I work so much and my days off are here and there. Summer is almost over! We have A MONTH left, and I feel so sad that I haven’t really had any peak moments/highlights to Summer 2017. How about you guys? Have you also found that Summer this year hasn’t been the greatest, fun-wise and weather-wise? If you’re having the best Summer of your life, that’s awesome! Have some fun for me ha-ha! But seriously, I hope this next month is a whole lot better!

I do have Wayhome Music and Art Festival to look forward to! This weekend I’ll be going to Wayhome with Topshop Topman! I am so excited because I’ve never been before, and I’m basically going FOR FREE. This will definitely be a highlight. We’ll be camping the entire weekend and there’ll be so much going on. I’ll be working for a bit of it but I get to do whatever I want for the rest of it! One of my goals while I’m there, besides having the best experience, is to vlog EVERYTHING. Well not everything, everything. I just want to share a good experience with you guys! Does that sound like a good idea? If anything, there will definitely be pictures to share and of course, a blog post.

I’m not dead!

Hey, it’s me. Yeah, I’m not dead! I didn’t fall off the face of the earth or anything like that. Life happened, but I feel much better and I’m ready to go back to doing things that make me happy. Like writing this blog!! :))

To those of you who are wondering why I haven’t written a blog post since March, it’s mainly because I went through a tough time and had to figure out who I am and what I love about myself again. Do you guys ever fall into ruts and feel like you just have zero motivation to do anything? Or just feel like nothing is worth it? It happens, and that’s life. If bad things never happened, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate all the good things. That’s all I’m going to say but I am more than glad to be back. I hope you guys are glad too!

Today’s post is a good ol’ outfit post. Weird to see my face again, huh? Ha-ha.

There really isn’t much to say about this outfit. I’m wearing all Topshop (obviously). Guys, I’ve honestly tried my best to branch out… but there isn’t a brand that fits me the same! By fit, I mean literally. Topshop also fits my style more but their Petite section gives me LIFE. I want to give a little shout-out to my shoes too though. These cute western-esque slide-on loafer thingies are so cute and have been meshing well with the rest of my wardrobe. Again, they fit me like a glove! Yay!!

Wardrobe Additions: November

Hello “TinyInTorontonians”!! (LOL) Here I am with the second month of “Wardrobe Additions”. For this month’s edition, I’m just going to share with you the pieces that I picked up from work (a.k.a. Topshop). Now when you see the number of items I have to share you’re going to be like, “Omg, you spend so much money. You’re crazy!!” – You know what? You’re probably right.

BUT – this month I won a $50 gift card and had accumulated enough reward points to get some of this stuff (like 3 items) FOR FREE. Yeah. Also, I get a pretty good discount (60% off) and some were also on sale. I just thought I’d defend myself a bit here, cause I definitely could never afford this much at full price. Sad, but true.

On to less depressing things! Here’s what I picked up from Topshop:

dscn24850dscn24900dscn24930dscn24980dscn25010dscn25050dscn25090

Yes, the first three items are VELVET. I think I’ve got enough velvet to last me the season now. I don’t want to get TOO carried away so I think these three pieces are just fine. I got two velvet dresses, one is a slip dress and the other a skater dress. I think the slip dress I could also get away with wearing in the Summer – that’s a bonus!  I also got a black velvet bat-winged sweater. I’m so excited about this piece (Trust me, I’m excited about all of them!!), but I really like how the velvet aspect of this sweater makes it easy to wear more formally. I could probably wear it with a fancy skirt and some statement earrings and be okay to go out to dinner! I love that. Next is this neutral-coloured blazer that’s very light and breezy. I got it on sale and I think it’s going to be a great piece to throw on top of my outfits all year round. The floral dress beside it in the pictures above is probably the dress I’ll be wearing around this time of year/holiday season. I could probably wear the velvet one as well, but I’m thinking this black floral print will be great to wear to a Christmas Mass or dinner, or something.

Finally, we have the camel crombie coat. Topshop comes out with a version of this coat every year, and I had *always* wanted one! I finally got around to getting it when it was half off on Black Friday. I think this coat will come in handy to wear over more formal attires, like dresses. Most of my coats are more casual, so I think this was a wise decision and definitely something that will benefit my wardrobe!

All of these items, like I said earlier, were purchased at Topshop. All mostly from the Petite section, but you can definitely find of few of these pieces in the regular line as well. I can’t wait to take outfit pictures with these pieces. I am way past due for an outfit post!! Hopefully I’ll have one for you guys next week *fingers crossed* (Low key already have plans for one ;)) hehe)

Thanks for reading, and I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Until next time,

Kensington Market

Hi! I’m still here!! I’m working full-time now so I’ve been a little drained lately. So drained that I’ve been too lazy to really keep up with my blog. By now, you guys should know that I’ll never really disappear for good. Blogging is something I love doing, and I don’t think I’ll ever quit it. Don’t worry! ;D

Today’s post is of a trip downtown Toronto to Kensington Market. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s an older neighbourhood that is very fun and diverse. It’s different and filled with creativity! The neighbourhood is full with houses that have been turned into shops/restaurants. There’s a lot of vintage clothing stores, cute coffee shops, fresh produce, and restaurants like a Big Fat Burrito that we went to for dinner that was pretty good! I went with some co-workers, Will (who you’ve seen in my previous post!) and Deniz (https://www.instagram.com/letsdenizme/). If you are ever visiting Toronto, I definitely recommend visiting Kensington Market.

White&Denim

Why hello there! I’m excited to say that I’m back with something different for you guys! I teamed up with a few friends, found a colorful location downtown Toronto, and we took some fun pictures that I’d love to share. This specific location had the cutest crates in a few different colours. They ended up being the perfect backdrop. We also agreed on wearing denim and white. You all know how much I love that combination ;D The photographers behind these lovely photos are Mark Gomez and Jasmine Cabanilla. Also joining us was my fellow Topshop/Topman associate, Will Prowse. I’ll link their Instagram accounts down below! Definitely check them out!

Now take a look at these pictureessss!

July Inspiration 2016

Hello lovely human beings of the internet! The end of the month is here and I can’t let the month end without an inspiration post!! That just wouldn’t be right.

For the month of July, I have been loving frayed denim jeans, belts, straw bags (obv, if you’ve read that blog post!), denim skirts, and statement earrings. I’ve also been loving the look of a button-up blouse tucked into looser jeans. (“Mom” jeans, essentially.) Overall, I’m really obsessed with the “model off-duty” look. To be honest, I always have been but I just recently have been applying the concept to my own personal style. If you don’t know what I mean by “model off-duty”, I mean the simple compilation of basics but somehow still coming out looking stylish af. It just seems effortless but still trendy. Maybe a better way to describe it is the “throw on and go” technique. It literally looks like that sometimes, and I love it. She grabs a shirt, a pair of jeans, cute shoes, statements earrings, and heads right on out the door! This is also part of the reason why I’ve been loving statement earrings lately. My outfits were so simple that a statement pair of earrings really helped balance everything/polished the look.

Perhaps I’m not best at describing it, but these photos will help you to better understand what I’m babbling about. If you still don’t get it, I’ll accept that I’m a freak.

So that’s everything for today! Thank you for stopping by and listening to my nonsense! Hope you come again ha-ha!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everybody!

Until next time,

Fabric Soldier

Another outfit post is here to share! This is the outfit that I wore and these photos were taken before we left to eat pho, get bubble tea, and see the Canada Day fireworks. The fireworks that were CANCELLED that is. It was SO ANNOYING to have them cancelled due to high winds, but I get it (clearly not over it though lol).

I knew it would get cooler at night so I used it as an excuse to wear this camo shacket, that I just added to my collection, for the first time. To be honest with you, I know this piece is called a “shacket” but I’m not 100% familiar with where it gets its name. I just know that it looks like a utility jacket, and is part of that army/utility dressing trend right now.. but that’s about it. Is it shaggy and jacket combined? Who knows.

I wanted to feature this green camo shacket so I paired it with an entire grey ensemble underneath and broke it up with my favourite white Nike AF1s. This is definitely a more relaxed, “comfort over style” kind of look but I think the jacket really saves my butt style-wise. I’m actually really surprised I didn’t already own a utility jacket. When I was trying it on in Topshop (surprise!), a friend was like, “it looks like you should already own it”. And that was that lol.

Now take a good look at these outfit photos! (Thank you, Jay!)
