Yo, and hello! I am very, very, very happy to finally be saying that I HAVE AN OUTFIT POST TO SHARE. Thanks to my friend Ken (Instagram: @kenifromtheblock), I have some shots of an outfit I wore earlier this week!! This particular outfit was inspired by a look I found while browsing the internet. It was a photo of some looks from Fashion Week last year. I was more so loving the center picture/the Gucci look, so I chose to try and recreate it. (I loooove Gucci!) Here’s the photo:
Now my take isn’t as colourful or “out there” as Gucci’s, which I think is what makes my look a bit more wearable. I really like the look of the “pussybow” (it’s what they call it, I swear!). I get Parisian vibes and it makes the look feel a bit more classy/sharp. It’s definitely more feminine and romantic as well. This has me pretty sure that I want to add a blouse with a pussybow to my wardrobe. For my version of the look, I used one of those skinny scarves from Zara and tried to tie it the same way as the picture. My scarf wasn’t as structured as the one in the inspiration photo, but I think it still kind of worked! I was also obsessed with the sleeves of the top from the Gucci look, and I had the perfect sweater to recreate it. Now here’s my take on the Gucci “Pussybow” look!
Sweater & Corduroy Pinafore Dress – Topshop| Scarf – Zara | Loafers – Jeffrey Campbell
What do you think? Do YOU like the look? Did I do alright at recreating it? I kind of enjoyed recreating a look from the runway and making it more wearable. Should I do a post like this again? I would love your feedback!
I hope you’re all having a great week so far! I wanna thank Ken again for taking pictures! You all should go check out his Instagram! He’s got great style! (www.instagram.com/kenifromtheblock) Happy Wednesday/hump day!
Until next time,
Recently, since school has just finished, I’ve had a lot of free time. When I have free time, I like to go downtown, see everything that I can see, and shop. I’ve done this twice in the past week and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it! I hope I never get tired of living in Toronto. Here are pictures of an outfit that I wore during one of those days. It probably comes as no shock but the majority of my outfit is from Topshop, literally everything but my shoes, sunglasses and bag (smh).

Happy Friday to all of you! I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Thanks for reading this post! Xxx
I can’t believe April is almost over. School is over. I’m officially one year away from finally obtaining my degree! It’s a little scary but then again, it is a year away. On to currents things! Here is what has inspired me (picture-wise) during the month of April. As you can see, there was a lot of suede, denim, and camel-loving this month. I’m still digging the 70s guys. A denim skirt that buttons up the front is on my current wish list. I think they’re adorable and very versatile. I’m really trying to pick up my skirt/dress game this summer. They’re just so pretty, girly, and easy to wear. What are your fashion go-tos during the summer season?
Hope you enjoyed these pictures! I do not take credit for any of them, they are all from Tumblr!
Until next time!
Before you say it! Yes, I got the denim jacket.. I went with the Topman one because the one from Depop felt a little risky. Although I would have loved a vintage Levi, I have no regrets. I’ve been wearing this oversized denim jacket everyday since I got it! I had a day off last Friday (no school AND no work- booya!) and I didn’t want to do anything but take pictures in the gorgeous weather! It was so nice outside that I had to wear a skirt and some open-toed heels. I may have looked a little too excited for summer but I didn’t care! I can’t wait to finish school this week and have more free time for my blog. It’s going to be one of my number one priorities this summer and I CAN’T WAIT! I LOVE SUMMER!

Here’s a different post for you guys!! What’s in my handbag? Honestly, how did this begin? Also, did you think this would take off as well as it did? I’m a little surprised but I’m glad I’m not the only nosey person around here!
Anyway, here’s my bag and all the EXCITING contents that I carry inside it *sarcasm*. I’ll start off with my bag. It is a recent purchase (#smh) and it’s by the Canadian designer label ‘Mackage’. I first saw it in Club Monaco and couldn’t stop thinking about it – we are soul mates (*bag addict/freak*)! She can carry everything and I can depend on her for almost anything. What a lucky girl I am ;D
Inside my purse I carry my tiny black Kate Spade wallet and my Louis Vuitton pouch thing (it carries lip products, a mirror, tide-to-go, band-aids, perfume, and a pen). There’s my work lanyard with a cute monkey sticker on it. A pack of my favourite gum is always in my bag (77cents at the dollar store!). I usually carry whatever book I’m currently reading so I can whip it out whenever I’m on the bus or the streetcar. The book I’m reading at the moment is “The Boys of Summer” by Roger Kahn. I have my keys on a black fluff-ball keychain-thing. It’s probably the closest I’ll get to one of those $2000 Fendi fluffy monster guys that are SO CUTE. I also carry a hair tie to keep my mane tamed. The two lip products that I have been loving lately are my Neutrogena lip balm and my MakeupForever lipstick in shade #10 (it’s the perfect pink-nude color for my lips). I think I’m never going to have to buy another lipstick again, as long as they don’t choose to discontinue this one. I looove it! Last but not least is a wee candy that I got when I went out for pho with my friends from work. The packaging is so cute that I can’t get myself to eat it! I’m a sucker for cute packaging – I get it from my mother. I’m just going to keep it in my bag forever.
So that’s all that I carry in my purse. I realized afterwards that most of the time I have a pair of sunglasses in my bag, but I guess I didn’t have any on me when I took the picture. Hope this satisfied your nosey needs!
Take care and TTY NEXT TIME XX
In every outfit I’ve posted so far, I’ve pictured myself with the sickest, most fab, small, black crossbody bag. Perfect for everyday and just all-around gorgeous. I told myself I wasn’t going to settle for something simple and cheap. “I will literally use this every day and wear the crap out of it.” – What I told myself.
So that settled it (doesn’t take much haha). I was going to purchase a designer bag. I was going to fork out that hard earned Topshop cash and buy a sexy Rebecca Minkoff, and I did just that. Let me introduce you to Avery!! I’ve mentioned her before but she is my new found lover and ultimate companion.
If you haven’t been paying any attention to a word I have said. I am clearly a bag lover. Purses or bags, whatever you want to call them… I’m obsessed. Buy me a gorgeous purse and I’m yours hunny! I’m that crazy bag lady!
Which leads me to asking, what are you crazy about? Bags, shoes, food, kittens… let me know in the comments below! ;D
