TARTAN TREND

Mother nature decided to give us a little treat this past weekend with some warm temperatures (minus the rain of course) and I took full advantage of it to have a crazy jam packed weekend. I was so happy I was able to shoot this fun outfit in Old Montreal. I bought this top at the Shop the 26th Look showroom two weeks ago but given the freezing temperatures, I was not able to wear it until now! Needless to say that tartan & plaid are this season’s hottest trends and so I just needed to get my hands on…

HOW TO SHOP SMART

Welcome to the era of buy now, wear now fashion! There are hundreds of thousands of shops out there, so it’s quite easy to get lost in the fashion jungle & spend a lot of money without being satisfied with your purse. Being a certified shopaholic (on a budget), I have a few tricks up my sleeves and today I would like to share them with you. Here are the top 5 things to consider before hitting the mall: 1- Focus on what you need: It’s the golden rule for shopping. Keeping your mind on those black trousers you need…

MY TOP 5 FAVOURITE SHOWS – NYFW 2014

So much beauty at the New York Fashion Week 2014 – S/S 2015. I followed most of the streamed shows via mbfashionweek.com. It was really difficult to chose my top 5 favourite runway shows to share, but I finally narrowed it down to these fabulous designers that depicted some of my favourite Spring/Summer trends: florals, bright colors, black&white, khaki & print. I chose 4 looks from each fashion show that I simply fell in love with & dream of having in my closet for next season! Desigual: So much color & such a fun show to watch! Not to mentioned that Candice…

HOW TO WEAR A MAXI IN FALL

It’s only natural to gravitate to dark pieces in fall, especially when the weather is so glum.

WEEKEND PLAID

It’s only Wednesday but I am already dreaming of the weekend. Even hump day can be a good day to wear weekend clothes, don’t you think so? I don’t know about you ladies, but as much as I love being chic, I love comfort even more and this look is the proof! Throw on a plaid shirt with a pair of the comfiest shorts and converse sneakers & off you go to take care of errands. Lately I’ve been sporting cross-body bags a lot. So easy to carry around and my back is so thankful! This season is all about…

DISTRESSED DENIM

Distressed denim – how I love thee! This is probably my favourite trend & the more distressed the better. I got these jeans at Zara and I found them stunning, but the holes were all patched up – not distressed enough. Since they fit perfectly, I got them and made them even more ‘perfect’ by over ripping the slit on the right knee. Perfection! Distressed jeans go with anything. This time I paired them with this blush #fashion code tee. This tee fits into the winter pastel trend & it’s my favourite graphic. I bought it at the same time as…
