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,
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,
Hi friends! I’m baaack with another outfit post! This outfit consists of two things I’ve been currently loving, camel suede and that darn button up skirt! Are you sick of seeing it yet? I promise that I’m keeping it at two ha-ha! This one in particular is white, and also from Topshop. I picked white because I don’t have any bottoms in my closet that are white. I was considering getting pants but this skirt just seemed like the perfect choice. My top is from Zara and it’s real suede leather. It’s got that weird leather smell but I love the look and the texture that it brings to my outfit. What do you think? Take a look!!
Top – Zara | Skirt, Sunglasses & Bag – Topshop | Sandals – Birkenstock
As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read this post ❤ Thank you to my boyfriend for taking the pictures (you’re the best). &I hope you all enjoyed my outfit!
Have a great weekend!

The snow is finally melting! I don’t want to jinx anything but Spring is almost here! Although I’m still terrified to go out in my white sneakers (too much mud!), the weather outside is definitely agreeing with my wardrobe. No more ridiculous layers, heavy jackets and winter boots. I. LOVE. IT. Earlier this month I was describing my perfect trench, days later I found this gem in the PETITE section of Topshop. This Spring she’ll be my second skin. We were made for each other! Here’s the first of many outfits featuring my new love:
Trench & Jeans – Topshop | Top/Dress – Forever21 | Boots – Zara
Another cold day (you can tell by the pictures where I look hand-less). These definitely aren’t the greatest of shots but I loved my outfit and had to share. This is a vintage skirt that I picked up at a thrift store downtown a few weeks ago. You’ll probably recognize it from my previous post ;D I wore it for the first time on a day I had to work and as I was walking to the bus stop (in a mad hurry), I made my boyfriend document my outfit.
Isn’t he the best?
Anywho! Voilà!! (Enjoy that expression in the second picture, it kills me.)
IF YOU’RE NOT FOLLOWING ME ON INSTAGRAM! YOU BETTER DO IT NOW! (@tinyintoronto)
LOVE YOU GUYS XX

I have just recently been hired as a sales advisor at a nearby Topshop. Yesterday was actually my first real shift on the job (which went really well!). One of the other new hires just happens to be a blogger and a fellow student in my program, so naturally we had to take some pictures of each other and create blog posts!! That’s what you’re supposed to do, right? After work, we literally just went outside and snapped a few pictures of our outfits. ‘Our-first-day-working-at-Topshop’ outfits.
For my outfit, I wore black American Eagle “jeggings”, a top from F21, a Brandy Melville necklace, my favorite Zara booties, and my new oversized/i-look-like-a-wannabe-hobo cardigan from Urban Outfitters (I luuuvvv it!).
To those of you who are interested, my dear friend Julia’s blog is blackchique.blogspot.com. She’s very sweet and beautiful, so you should all check her out and leave a comment!
Hope you’re all having a great day!
