HOW TO WEAR EXTENSIONS WITH SHORT HAIR

I’ve always had fine & thin hair and keeping it long wasn’t really doing anything for me, therefore on recommendation from my hairdresser, I faced my fear & cut it short to create more volume. Surprisingly, I fell in love with the cut – it frames my face nicely & it’s low maintenance, which is great since I have a really busy schedule. However, I’ve been missing having long hair and my sister’s wedding was coming up so I decided to give Luxy hair extensions a try. I was a little worried about whether I would be able to blend…

WHAT I’M BUYING THIS FALL + SHOPBOP SALE!!!

Although I love Summer, Fall has to be my favourite season of the year, and the reason is simple: Fashion. I’m obsessed with blazers (I counted 21 in my wardrobe…), lightweight sweaters (too many to count), midi skirts & jackets. It’s so easy to put together and elevate an outfit with something so simple as a blazer! You just can’t go wrong, and that’s why I selected it to be the anchor of the 1st Shopbop outfit that I put together for Back to Work. This Lioness The Don Jacket in check is stunning and I love the beige undertone.…

HOME OFFICE / WALK-IN CLOSET OVERHAUL WITH IKEA

I’m so thrilled to finally unveil my home office / walk-in closet overhaul with IKEA [Ad] – right in time for Back to Work/ Back to School! It’s no surprise to anyone that living in Toronto is expensive & space is scarce, so you have to learn how to make the best of it in order to live comfortably. I live in Midtown – a hotspot for young professionals, and the home to some beautiful, but very small condos. Mine is approximately 600 square feet, but thankfully it has 2 bedrooms, one of which I converted into my home office…

PARIS COUTURE WEEK OUTFIT #5

Last, but not least: my Paris Couture Week outfit #5 featured this stunner from Self Portrait via Shopbop. When you wear quality clothes, you feel it, both physically and emotionally. The stunning crochet construction, the fabric & the weight of this dress testifies to it’s craftsmanship & quality. However, the most important thing is that this dress made me feel like a million dollars! What’s even more is that I was able to hit the shows all glam with this dress and sandals, and then switch to sneakers to run around the city. We walked all the way from Place…

PARIS COUTURE WEEK OUTFIT #4

Paris Couture Week outfit #4 was all about this Amanda Uprichard Red dress via Shopbop! It’s the perfect, most figure flattering dress with cap sleeves with ruffles and belted waist. It can easily be dressed up for Paris Couture Week Fashion shows with these Zara white sandals, and dressed down with white sneakers to run around the city. Red is hot this season, especially in Paris, both on & off the runway, so I definitely made the right choice. It’s the 1st time I get an Amanda Uprichard dress and I’m really impressed with the quality + it’s made in…

PARIS COUTURE WEEK OUTFIT #3

Stripes on stripes on stripes! My Paris Couture Week Outfit #3 was all about this Banana Republic stripe dress! The fit & flare dress is so figure flattering with the white band at the waist and the large shoulder straps. It simply hits all the SS19 trends: square neckline, midi length & of course the stripes! I simply knew that I would shoot this outfit at Buren’s Columns of the Palais Royal to be a little matchy-matchy, but still have contrast given that the stripes on the dress are of a different size than those of the columns. We got…
