The Look I made this look just before summer hit. I was going to a bar/lounge and I didn’t want to wear the usual tight top and black pants combo. I was sick of anything related to winter. I was browsing my closet for a top when I stumbled onto my old high school semi dress. Yup, its from good old American Apparel! I cut it in half and I have a corset top. Surprising I actually like this trend. I use to associate a corset top with baggy roots pants and UGGs. Thankfully those things are no longer an…

The Look: As I’m casually scrolling through my social media feed I start to see a recurring outfit. Power blazer paired with a relaxed light wash denim. I enjoyed seeing these two elements together. If you know me irl you know I’m obsessed with blazers from styling them as dresses to pairing them with denim. But I wanted more. Until I thought about a power suit. It always baffles me how fashion goes around in a circle. It currently seems like the 80’s and 90’s are back in a fresh way. For this look I’m definitely channeling some 80’s vibes…

The Look:  I live in a place where you need a jacket 9 out of 12 months. So you can understand my obsession for jacket/coats! I prefer to wear most of my clothes oversize/baggy and that goes the same for my outerwear. For this look I decided to emphasize the off then shoulder trend. This is most likely not going to be an everyday outfit. Simply due to it not being very functional but it does look hella cute! You can achieve this off the shoulder jacket by buttoning up the jacket half way. Easy! Side the top of the…

The Mood Speak Things Into Existence One day you’re happy and everything is going well the next everything is to shit. Life! I remember just a couple months ago in the middle of winter everyday was going to shit. Nothing super bad happened but that was my daily feeling. I’m not a winter creature. Never have and never will. I can’t stand being cold, or the gloomy days that seem to go on forever. I can’t. Now, It is finally spring time in Toronto. I feel a little better. I wake up everyday thinking well at least isn’t cold or…

I can’t, I really wish I could, Sorry… etc. The list can go on and on. Excuses as to why you can’t get turnt or lit that night. You say this thinking about the numerous things you need to do before the week is done and being hungover even for one day won’t work with the tight deadlines. Even though you crave social interaction. Of course being sober while going out doesn’t even register. Of course thats hella lame. I started drinking when I was 16 and I use to drink to get drunk. Sloppy tripping over myself how did…

When I saw this plaid blazer/coat at value village near the end of 2016 I didn’t realize how big of a trend it will become. Since NYFW ( New York Fashion Week ) specifically @Tibi Fall/Winter ’17 show plaid is back with a vengeance. I’m totally here for it this time around. I remember not being that interested in plaid going up. I either associated with preppy school girls or the counter reaction the punk/tank girl. That aesthetics was far too edgy for my 12 year old tomboy self. Imagine me wearing a public school uniform but instead of a skirt,…

I’m 21! This is a weird realization and I can’t fully wrap my mind around. When I originally started writing this blogpost I was going to write 5 things I don’t care about as I turn 21. Basically all the things that society tells a women to care for because she’s a women. But Instead I’m going to talk about three things I love about being a BLACK woman. My weave/extensions! I can’t express  how grateful I am to be BLACK! I love being able to change my entire look with just putting in different weaves. Short, black, tall, curly…

When I saw these patent pants on Zara I knew where this was heading. Patent is finally back on trend and I can’t seem to get enough of this finish. Currently in my collection I have a patent pants, shoes and raincoat. So, yeah I’m definitely here for this look. Also during Paris Fashion Week Mens, patent along with lamé dominated the runway. Some might be hesitant with how to style this look but I find It acts like leather in my day to day life. Instead of putting on my leather leggings I opt for my patent pants. It…
