OOTD: Layering Game

Hey everyone! I’m very, very, very happy that I finally have some of my own photos to share this time!! I have an outfit of the day, can you believe it?! I can’t even remember the last time I was able to get some decent outfit pictures. Actually.. it was probably the last time my friend Keni (Instagram: @kenifromtheblock) took pictures of me ha-ha. This outfit was based on layering, and mixing casual pieces with a piece that would be considered more formal. This printed drape-y vest was something I got on sale at Topshop last year and I always considered it as kind of a more dressier piece. To layer and make this vest look more casual, I added jeans, a distressed t-shirt, sneakers, and a leather jacket! I like how it turned out, and I’m glad I opted for green as a pop of colour. Normally, I would have been safe and gone with a neutral-coloured t-shirt BUT NOT THIS TIME ;D I know it’s not anything crazy. This is only a bit of an example of how I have been evolving in terms of style and taste. I can’t wait to show you guys more!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. You guys have no idea how much I like to share my outfits and I’m gonna try my best to do it more. I’m currently thinking about doing an “Outfits of The Week” post. What do you guys think of that idea? Let me know in the comment section below!!

Until next time!

Outfit: Gucci Inspired

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!

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,

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,

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)

Blue Suede Shoes

Hi everyone! I’m back with a post that is all about one pair of shoes. If that doesn’t tell you how much I love them, I don’t know what else will ha-ha. These are my favourite shoes of Summer 2016. Why? Well, let me tell you.

Let me start off by saying that my feet are tiny. I have baby feet. I am lucky if a woman’s size 5 shoe fits me, and if that doesn’t fit, I usually buy the kid’s version. These gorgeous blue suede mules are from Topshop. If you guys don’t already know, I work there Full Time now. I’ve been an employee for almost two years and not once did I ever find a pair of shoes that fit me perfectly. Of course, I’ve bought shoes from Topshop before but I had to buy insoles to make them fit properly. The smallest shoe size that Topshop carries in Canada is typically a 5.5. When I saw these mules, they came in size 4.5! So obviously, I felt like I had to buy them because never again will this happen. Like I’m telling you, the fact that we had a pair in a size 4.5 is a HUGE rarity. So yeah, I bought them. Duh. And I love them. Double Duh.

I wear them with almost anything. You would assume that because they’re blue, which is not necessarily a neutral colour, they wouldn’t go with much. Like I’ve said, they actually go well with a lot. I love pairing them with denim. I love how they can make a boring outfit more fun. They’re a great little pop of colour and definitely different from the rest of the shoes in my closet. ALSO, they’re comfortable! I can do a full shift with these guys on and it will be bearable.

It’s sad that Summer has come to an end and I probably won’t wear them again for a while. But I hope you guys love these shoes as much as I do! If not, maybe you’ve enjoyed my passion for them? I am very passionate about these shoes and I can’t wait to wear them again next year.

Hope you guys are having a fabulous Monday!

Until next time,

Skirt of my Dreams

Hey! I’m back with an outfit post for ya’ll! I know I said there would be more blog posts this summer, but I’ve just come to the realization that between my job and work placement.. finding time to take pictures is a lot harder than I thought. I love blogging so bear with me! Blog posts will come, just not as often as you and I would like *sad face*.

On to today’s post! This denim skirt guys. I can’t even remember if I’ve talked about this skirt before but I AM IN LOVE. I first met “eyes” with this skirt when Alexa Chung came out with her collection for AG jeans. I’m a big fan of Alexa Chung and in the ads, she rocked it. I had to have this skirt. A month or so later I found out that Topshop designed a similar skirt! I freaked out (obviously). So I waited, and waited, and waited for it to come to my location. When it did, my size was already gone! I was crushed guys. I called other locations in the Toronto area and they didn’t have my size either. I even begged a friend who works at another location to look for it for me. No luck. My size was snatched before I could blink. I was devastated. Maybe a little depressed. I guessed it wasn’t meant to be..

THEN A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, boyfriend and I were shopping downtown and stopped by the location downtown. I FOUND MY SIZE. NOT ONLY WAS IT MY SIZE BUT IT WAS A PETITE VERSION SO IT WAS A PROPER LENGTH FOR ME TOO! I was ecstatic.

So yeah, I have the skirt now.. and I wear it as often as I can. I can pretty much wear it with anything and I love that! I was pulling some hardcore 70s vibes when I wore this outfit, but you know I’m all about that ;D Take a look at this outfit!
