Croc Bag Dreams: Achieved.

Hey everybody! I’m back with information that I have been dyyying to share with you guys since Christmas. You’re gonna laugh. Wait for it..

My brother got me the perfect croc-textured baaaggg!! (THANK YOU, AARON <3)

Mind you, I did pick it out and order it myself.. he just gave me the money. NONETHELESS he still got it for me, and I love it, and I’m gonna use it until it falls apart!

Do you guys remember how this croc-textured-bag-hunt started? I noticed that the Olsen twins (and many of my other style icons) wear them ALL THE TIME. Literally every candid photo of them is with some variation of a crocodile or snake-textured bag. They’re gorgeous, and I think they’re also pretty classy (the bags and the Olsen twins). I could go on with how obsessed I am but I won’t. All I  can say is that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are terrible enablers. The saddest part is that we’ve never even met..

Anywho! I am very grateful for this Christmas present (and for my brother, obv). I hope that one day I can maybe own a nice expensive one. It will probably take a million years but until then, this one from Zara is my baby. I took some photos of her, have a look!

I’m reading this over and I’m realizing that I’m treating this bag like it has feelings. If you know me, this is how I am with bags. If you don’t know me: I AM A HUGE BAG LADY (/nerd). If I could own a closet full of bags, I really, really would. A bag “is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity”. Thank you Doug, from the movie Devil Wears Prada. The Devil Wears Prada is my favourite movie and I just found out the character’s name was Doug. He’s right though! I feel like a woman can be defined by the kind of bag she wears. Her bag can express her personality and her taste. Am I wrong? Hopefully this Zara bag expresses that I’m a wannabe Olsen twin, haha! I can’t wait to wear it all the time! I’ll be sure to include it in upcoming outfit posts!

Hope you all have a fab weekend! Happy Fridaay!

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!

Oh Happy Day.

Hi everyone! I have a quick outfit post from the day I was told I got the apartment I wanted! No more student housing!! This is my first apartment and real home in Toronto. It was kind of a great day for me, so here are some pictures that pretty much sum it all up. (Clearly I was overjoyed lol.)

 

Turtleneck – Topshop | Dress – Thrifted | Frilly Socks – Topshop | Loafers – Jeffrey Campbell

There’s really not much else to say about this day/outfit. Just that I’m glad I won’t have to live in a tiny basement bedroom without a closet anymore. It was literally like Harry Potter’s room under the stairs. I also am glad that I won’t have to look at that jungle of a backyard anymore. Like c’mon. LOOK AT THOSE WEEDS!

(They are kind of pretty though.)

Anyways, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I’ll be celebrating my birthday tomorrow! I am SO EXCITED 🙂 My birthday was on Tuesday, but because I also graduated that day I couldn’t properly celebrate ;D Oh, and I’m also combining my birthday party with a housewarming party!! Woohoo!

Until next time!

May Inspiration 2016/UPDATE: I’VE MOVED!

Hey everybody! I’m back with a new blog post. I know it’s a little late for a May Favourites post, but I don’t want to skip a month! Also, with all the moving hysteria I haven’t had much time to take outfit photos.

But anyways, I’ve moved! I’ve moved into my very first apartment!!!! It’s a lot more work than I thought, but I am really happy with how it’s coming along. I’ve been cleaning, painting, organizing, and putting together a lot of IKEA furniture lol. I’ve been SUPER obsessed with home décor lately. Do you have any websites you think I should check out? Let me know in the comment section below!!

My previous living arrangement was in a basement of a house shared with four other girls. It was the tiniest room (think like Harry Potter’s room under the stairs) and I couldn’t do anything in it. On top of that, I had the tiniest window so the lighting was horrible. NOW I have a huge window and a spacious room with an ACTUAL CLOSET. I can’t wait to have this place fully decorated, but of course it takes time and money. I’m thinking about making YouTube videos again, especially of the new apartment and the process of getting it all pretty! Not sure when I’ll get around to it, but still keep your eyes peeled for that! ;D

Now onto my May Favourites! May was a pretty hectic month for me. We were scrambling to find an apartment for June 1st. It was a only week before we had to move out when the apartment we REALLY wanted got back to us. It was honestly one of the best feelings/days ever. I had no idea what I was going to do until then!

So for May, I generally had been loving the same things. The inspiration for the past month was still all those transitional pieces when heading into Summer. A lot of lightweight and drape-y fabrics. Of course, denim (it’s me you’re talking to here). Prints, skirts, dresses, and CHOKERS. I am obsessed with chokers that I think I may do a blog post just dedicated to them. You know what? I’m so doing that. Stay tuned!

 

So this is my update/late May Favourites post! I hope you all enjoyed it! I do have to admit that I am glad to be back, and ready to come at you in full force.

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

Until next time,

April Inspiration ’16

HIIIIIII!! I’m here. I’m still alive. I feel like even though school has ended, my life still hasn’t really relaxed. I still haven’t settled completely, and it sucks. I’m trying to work as much as possible. I’m kind of considering a second job. My lease is up at the end of this month and I’m searching like crazy for a new apartment. I really really really want to blog and vlog, but life is pretty hectic for me right now (to say the least).

On a positive note: I’M GRADUATING! Finally going to obtain that Bachelor of Commerce Degree I’ve waited 4 years for and I couldn’t be more relieved. Believe it or not but I’m actually going to be graduating on my birthday this year. That should be fun! =D

For today’s post, I’m sorry, but it’s just your typical monthly inspiration post. Nothing fancy. It’s a little late but still worth a share. This month I’ve been loving the usual stuff, just mixing it up a bit differently. I love bright colours, white, denim, drapey pieces, trousers, bombers, lace-up tops, etc. You can tell by the beautiful mosaic I’ve provided below.

 

How are your lives? Hopefully going smoother than mine at the moment. Being a big kid sucks, am I right? It’s overwhelming.

Nonetheless, I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! Have a happy Mother’s day! I’m not working this weekend! I’ll be in my home town celebrating with my family and boyfriend ❤

Until next time!

Embracing My Inner Leopard

Hey friends! Boy, do I have some good news for you! I have more photos to share!!!! Thank you to my good friend (and future roommate!) Jay De Belen for taking photos of me, I am so happy with the way they turned out! Him and I were talking and I think he’ll be taking more photos of me from now on, especially once we move in together – yay! Here! Take a look!

I know I’ve already shared a blog post wearing this leopard coat, but I love it so much. Spring will be here soon (I hope) and then I won’t be able to wear it anymore. I have to take advantage that it’s still chilly and wear my leopard baby as much as I can!!

I hope you guys enjoyed these photos as much as I do. Get prepared for some more photos from us! These next two weeks are the last two weeks of my college career, so they’re going to be a little hectic… But after that blogging, vlogging, and all that jazz will be in FULL SWING! This summer is going to be great. I’m pumped.

Have a fabulous weekend everybody!

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!

Once again, I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Thank you to all of you who follow my posts regularly, it really means a lot!

Happy Friday and have a fabulous weekend!
