OOTW: Mar.6- Mar.11

I did it. I documented my outfits for AN ENTIRE WEEK!! I’ll admit, instead of 7 outfits I only have 6… but that’s because I tend to wear nothing but pyjamas on at¬†least¬†one of my days off. Everyone needs a lazy day right? I’m sure you don’t care about my oversized high school gym t-shirt and Hello Kitty pyjama pants lol. Besides, every other day I managed to take a picture of my outfit and I’m quite proud that I found the time to do it! There were times where I thought I was going to be late for work because of it, but I was never late! Thank God! This was fun and if you guys would like me to do it again, I would love to! I think I’d prefer doing it again when I don’t have to layer up though. Most days I had to put on the shoes I wanted to wear with the outfit, take the picture, then take them off, pack them in my work bag, put on my winter accessories and boots, then run out the door! A lot of time wasted. In the Summer, I could snap the photo and go! Oh Summer. How I miss thee..

Here are the outfits I wore last week, with a description of what I’m wearing and where I got everything!

– SUNDAY, MARCH 5th, 2017¬†–

I wanted a cozy outfit to start my week. When I think cozy, I think of a sweater or a hoodie. I recently got this hoodie on sale for $10 and really wanted to wear it. Of course I didn’t just want to wear a hoodie and jeans (boring!!), so I put my own spin to it. I added a dress as an extra layer (you’ll know I love this look if you read my last blog post!), some modern dangly earrings, and some heeled sock boots to dress it up a bit more. I didn’t want to look too casual!! :p¬†Anyways, this is definitely one of my favourite outfits that I wore last week. It’s different and for some reason I felt comfortable and more myself in this outfit. I don’t know about you guys but if I’m feeling my outfit, I tend to be in a better mood. Am I the only one?

[ Everything I’m wearing is from Topshop, besides the earrings. The earrings are from Free People and are my latest obsession! ]

Another thing you guys should know about me (because I did a blog post on this too!!) is that I LOVE STRIPES! This outfit was dedicated to my love for stripes. “Go big or go home”, right? I combined horizontal and vertical stripes. I think this pairing works because the stripes vary in thickness and the colours contrast well. The stripes were a big enough statement so I kept the shoes white and just threw on my leather jacket. I was a little hesitant leaving my house this way to be honest, but I got great feedback that day! I’m definitely going to experiment with stripes more.

[ Everything is from Topshop, besides my sneakers. I got my sneakers from Foot Locker, they’re Nike Air Force Ones. ]

TUESDAY, MARCH 7th, 2017

I had this day off. If we’re being serious, I just threw this outfit together before going out to grab some donuts from my favourite bakery down the road. I didn’t shower or anything. I tossed it together, stuck glasses on my face, then took off! When I got back, it was back into my pyjamas for me lol. This look is probably one of my go-to’s. Mom jeans, a plain top, and a statement jacket = good to go!

[ All the clothes are from Topshop. Glasses are from BonLook. Sneakers are white (actually, not-so-white) Converse high-tops from SoftMoc. ]

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8th, 2017

After a day off, I always come back to work feeling “fresh”. I feel like my mind has relaxed and all my creative juices are flowin’, hence the vibrant outfit. This is bold. This is¬†a lot of color. But like I said in my “SS17 Trend Guide”, fuchsia is getting all the love this season. I LOVE my fuchsia trousers. I don’t know why, but I feel like the red and purple compliment fuchsia pretty well. Don’t you think? Maybe because fuchsia is kind of a mixture of the two? Idk ha-ha. Also, do we like my white¬†frilly socks? I thought they were a cute touch!

[ Everything is from Topshop, but my loafers are Jeffrey Campbell from Duet. ]

A write off lol. (Pyjama Day)

FRIDAY, MARCH 10th, 2017

(Happy Birthday, Dad!) This was my ‘Fashion Friday’ outfit. We had to come to work dressed as one of the three trend departments that¬†we have at Topshop. They’re named after girls. There’s the “Pretty Girl”, “Urban Girl”, and the “Stylist Girl”. Each girl is different. I had to dress like the Pretty Girl. It’s basically a department with all our ruffles, embroidered denim, bell sleeves,¬†and floral dresses. Have to say I love how my hair turned out this day. Wavy and kind of¬†“natural-looking”? I achieved my hair goals and it probably won’t ever¬†happen again :(( Also! I love my boots.

[ Everything is from Topshop (go figure!), but the tights are a random brand from Shoppers Drug Mart. ]

SATURDAY, MARCH 11th, 2017

Last day of the week, so I decided to wear a fancy piece/go out with a “bang!” This is a $125 dress¬†that I got for $20. I normally wouldn’t gravitate towards a piece like this because it’s long and I’m afraid of my making myself look any shorter, but I went for it because I loved this mix of patterns! I also¬†don’t have ANYTHING like this in my wardrobe. I think this dress will be great in the Summer. I could throw on a floppy hat or some sneakers. I could wear it with Birkenstocks. I could dress it up too! I could wear strappy heels or some wedges! It makes me want to buy more dresses like this!!¬†Either way, I will definitely get more than my $20 worth from this dress, so¬†I am verrry pleased with this purchase :))

[ EVERYTHING IS FROM TOPSHOP (I’m sorry lol!) ]

OK! Those are my outfits that I wore last week. I hope you found them interesting? It feels a little weird sharing photos of what I wore everyday for the past week. YOU CAN SEE A BIT OF MY ROOM. *gasp* This type of post is a little bit more personal because you get to really see my style/taste. I really hope you guys like it!

I also hope that you’re having a great start to your week! Happy Monday, everybody¬†ūüôā

Until next time,

Currently Loving (&HAPPY NEW YEAR!)

Hey friends! I’m currently a victim of a terrible stomach bug, and have isolated myself in my room with nothing to do. I can’t sit around and do nothing, so I thought I’d be productive and share a blog post! I kind of lost track of my “December Inspiration” and therefore I’ve¬†decided¬†to¬†just¬†share inspiration photos/photos of things I’m “currently loving”. I’ll probably continue to do monthly inspiration posts for 2017 because I like to see how my taste¬†evolves throughout the year. I¬†am going to put a stop to “Wardrobe Additions” though. As much as I liked the idea, I feel like it has encouraged me to shop more. I’ll go shopping and think: “I love this! And I could add it to my Wardrobe Additions for the month, so that’s even better!”¬†So basically I was buying (or thinking of buying)¬†even more clothes just¬†for blog content.¬†Definitely not the kind of mentality I should have if I want to save my money,¬†pay off student loans, and travel. I have plenty of clothes that I can remix and re-style. I think that’s the great part about fashion and personal¬†style. It works for any budget, and it’s more about how you express yourself than if you have the latest trendy piece. So here are some photos that inspire my current¬†taste in fashion/style, and also some photos that I just loove right now:

There you have it! A quick post on what’s currently inspiring me style-wise. I know it’s not much, but it’s something!¬†A¬†new year’s resolution of mine if to be more consistent with blogging and to¬†really (like¬†actually) start my YouTube channel. I will keep you guys updated!

And until then,¬†I hope you all had happy holidays and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store!

Have a great weekend (hope your Friday is going better than mine!),

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)

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,

Bein’ Green

It’s Friday again, so I’m back with something new to share! Today I (FINALLY) have a fresh outfit post for you guys. It features this adorable green dress that I never would have thought I’d enjoy wearing this much. Old me would have NEVER worn a dress like this. Too much color. Way too bright. I love seeing how my style and taste have changed.

This dress is from.. Want to try and guess? Topshop, of course! I’ve been branded guys. I’m having trouble branching out from Topshop. I just love the clothes so much, and being surrounded by them almost every day does not help at all. I just love everything the brand has to offer. Believe me, I have wandered into other stores and have tried other pieces on but nothing really speaks to me as much as Topshop. Perhaps I’m biased because I work there, but Topshop never fails me! Is this as bad as I think it is? Do you guys know of any brands similar to Topshop? I just don’t want to have a closet full of Topshop clothes and then one day hate everything. Gosh, I’m so dramatic. #smh

Now take a look at these awesome shots Jay (http://kuyacozyboy.blogspot.ca/) took of me again!
