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,

Wardrobe Additions: October

I am super excited to share with you guys a new¬†type of blog post! I was trying to come up with more ideas for blog posts and when I thought of this one, I was shocked I had never thought of it before! Honestly though, am I dumb? I’m a fashion nut and shop-aholic, why would I NOT share the new pieces I add to my wardrobe? I mean, I add more than enough clothes to my wardrobe in a month that I might as well share them. So here¬†are this month’s finds!

For the month of October I really focused on adding¬†some new¬†Fall pieces to my wardrobe. I think I may have purchased more than what I am about to show you, but I can’t quite remember. I don’t know if this means that¬†I have a more serious problem than I thought, but I think this could be the majority of it all. I went shopping¬†the other day¬†and over the weekend, so I feel like I have enough to share anyway ha-ha. Mind you, all of it¬†is thrifted!! *proud smile* I didn’t drop huge amounts of $$$ on this stuff. I’m a college graduate with debt up to her ears after all.

Just take a look at my new additions below! Also, if you wanna see some of them on me, check out my Instagram! (www.instagram.com/tinyintoronto)

dscn24691-2dscn24761-2dscn24801-2dscn24811-2dscn24831-2dscn24841-3

Overall I think I bought 7 thrifted pieces. Six tops and one dress. I usually only buy tops because it’s such a difficult task trying to find me bottoms in a thrift store. Thank goodness the oversized look is in or I wouldn’t have found as much – seriously. I did get lucky and found some XS pieces and the dress I found FIT ME LIKE A GLOVE. It was a moment to remember.

Let me talk a bit about each piece. In the first photo, I have a camel long sleeve polo/button-up thing, a velour mock neck thing, and a lace-y/tie-up blouse thing. Wow, what great descriptions. The camel colored piece looks awesome underneath my denim pinafores/dresses and also paired with skirts! It’s an XS and I think it fits me quite nicely! The velour mock neck top is definitely what I was looking for/talking about in my velvet post. This is the piece that I’m going to use to experiment with textures and “velvet”. I can picture this brown velour top with black skinnies or my pleather skirt. It’s gonna be fun. Thirdly, there’s this tie-up/lace-y thing that gives me solid Free People vibes. I think it really emulates that boho-chic look.¬†It’s also an XS and fits me quite nicely :))¬†I’ll probably get most of my wear out of it during the summer though.

The next four pieces are pretty interesting as well. There’s a Manny Pacquiao graphic tee that I love (*filipino pride*), a floral/Fall printed/velvet textured t-shirt, a vintage button-up with a sick print and sick sleeves to match (check Instagram!), and last but not least, the traditional oriental dress (THAT FITS ME LIKE A GLOVE). The¬†Manny Pacquiao graphic¬†tee I’ve already worn. I think it’s going to be that t-shirt that I gravitate towards the most on my days off. It’s just cool and chill, and I like it lol. The floral printed t-shirt covered in Fall colours is another one of those texture-testing pieces. Probably will look great paired with mom jeans or something. The vintage button-up with the sick print is one of my new favourite blouses. I think I can tuck it in into literally anything I want: trousers, skirts, jeans, dresses/pinafores – anything. The sleeves are an ultimate bonus! They’re kind of bell-shaped? Think¬†“pirate”.¬†Last but not least, THE DRESS. Check Instagram because I still can’t believe how well it fit me. I was walking towards the cashier and this dress caught my eye. It only took seconds after seeing it for me to snatch it up and run back to the change room. The lady working in the change room probably thought I was a freak (I was grinning and kind of bouncing with the dress in my hands lol). I LOVE IT. I had been subconsciously looking for a dress like this, and low and behold, I found one.

So there you have it! My first installment of my “Wardrobe Additions” series. I’m not going to lie, this is my second time writing this post and I am little unimpressed/annoyed. I blame my internet. Or maybe WordPress didn’t want to save it for me. IDK. However, I am still quite excited to share these posts within the upcoming months. I have no clue whether or not it’s going to remain a monthly thing though. What if I have such an amazing shopping trip that I don’t want to wait until the end of the month to share it? I might just go crazy and share it then and there! :O

I do have another project up my sleeve. Keep those peepers open for my first vlog in a very, very, verrrry long time. It’s¬†SUPER amateur, but it was fun and I wanna share it! Stay tuned!

I hope you’re all having a good day!

Until next time,

October Inspiration 2016

I’m here with my fashion inspiration photos of the month! You guys know how this goes. So for the month of October, according to all the photos I reblogged on Tumblr, I was inspired by chunky knits, velvet, tailored clothing/menswear,¬†graphic tees, fishnets,¬†sparkly things, and denim (as per usual lol). My love for turtlenecks has also been rekindled – yay!¬†I’m patiently waiting for the perfect time to whip out my beret! Oh myyy,¬†there’s so much I am looking forward to wearing this Fall/Winter!! Take a look below! I have TWENTY photos to share!! AH!

What fashion pieces/clothing items¬†are your favourite during the Fall/Winter season? I’d love to know in the comments below!

Also, I have some exciting things coming your way! I VLOGGED a few days ago and I am so excited to edit it and share it with you guys. It was recorded on my iPhone, so it’s not my best camera skills but I enjoyed recording nonetheless – and I hope you guys will like it too! Another project I’m working on is a new series called “Wardrobe Additions”! I’m not sure if it’s going to be a monthly thing or a “play by ear” kind of thing, but I’m going to make blog posts on all the my pieces (whether thrifted or bought from Topshop lol), and share them with you all here! Exciting, no?!

I don’t want to give away too much, but I’m hoping I’ll get to share both these projects with you guys within the next week or so.

Until then, I hope you all have a great weekend! Happy Friday!

Embroidered Jeans

Hey guysss! It’s nice to be back. I just bought a new laptop yesterday and felt super motivated to get a blog post together. So here it is! (Also, HAPPY CANADIAN THANKSGIVING!)

These photos that I’m about to share were taken a month or so ago. It’s already starting to feel like Fall, so it makes me a little sad to look at them now. (I miss Summer!!)

But I’m also ready for all the cozy sweaters Fall brings. I’m already starting to layer up and wear my heavier jackets – it’s crazy how fast the seasons are changing! Sooner than we know it, Winter will be here… ugh.

Anyways, I’m back in my hometown with a new laptop and some free time, so I thought I’d share these photos that I have been wanting to post for a while now. My tablet that I normally used for blogging decided to stop working on me. The touchscreen died and the keyboard would pick and choose when it would want to respond to my typing. It was quite annoying. All of that is over now (thank goodness), so I’ll get on with these photos! (Jsyk they were taken by Deniz again! <333) They were taken downtown Toronto at Honest Ed’s. It’s a discount store that was opened in 1948 and is unfortunately, going to be closed down sometime in the near future. It’s sad that such a historic building is no longer going to be around. It’s definitely more of a tourist-y kind of place but it’s still something I think most people in Toronto have experienced. If not, maybe they should! Here’s a quick glimpse of a center alley of the building (it’s riveting stuff lol).

Those are the pictures – I hope you like them! I know it hasn’t been unreasonably long since my tablet died, but I feel a little rusty atm. Is it just me? Anyways, glad to be back (again). I hope my fellow Canadians are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am definitely thankful to have you guys who think my blog is worth reading. I appreciate it a lot :))

(Happy 9th Birthday to my little sister, Anikah xx)

Until next time,

Cuckoo for Culottes

Hello hello! I’m am so glad that¬†I can say that I have an outfit post for you guys this week! This is the fourth (and last *sadface*)¬†set of photos taken by the talented Joanna Dass. This outfit was created around these burnt orange culottes (perfect colour for Fall!)¬†that I actually love even more now that I’m looking at these photos again. They are a bit on the longer side but with heeled booties they don’t look¬†too shabby. I purchased these culottes from Aritzia. They’re not from Topshop! – That’s a shocker ha-ha. What I like about them most is that they are loose and air-y! They’re so comfy! We were a little worried about the lighting of these photos but I think the outfit actually¬†works well¬†with it! What do you think?¬†I’m getting real edgy vibes.. I look tough, right? (LOL)

Anywho! Here are the pictures, I hope you like them!

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

Hope you guys are all having a fantastic Friday so far! Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend! ‚̧

September Inspiration 2015

Hey guys! I’m back again, but this time with this month’s pictures of inspiration. As you can see in these photos, there’s a lot of 70s-90s vibes going on in September (I think). That’s what I’ve been loving! Definitely all about tying things around my neck, by “things”, I mean scarves. I’ve been also loving my skirts and my light sweaters/turtlenecks. I like drape-y-ness. I like tucking in loose shirts. I’m still loving my white sneakers. I think a lot can be said just by looking at these pictures, so enjoy!

As always, the pictures used for this inspiration post are not mine. They were taken from a collection of pictures that I reblogged on Tumblr!

I hope you liked this post and was somewhat as inspired as I am by these pictures. Have a fabulous weekend!!
