Funny story: after finishing a 5K run after work, I realized that I’d forgotten my access pass to the office on my desk. So, no access to the showers for me. I berated myself as I climbed into my car while sweating buckets.

The largest living room within in the penthouse had been transformed into a dreamy salon full of evening gowns fit for a princess. Lining the walls were rolling racks full of exquisite gowns and frilly frocks from the likes of Hillary MacMillan, Christopher Paunil and Narces.

I’m not sure how I feel about the logomania that has begun to sweep the fashion world. I was caught up in it during the early 2000s and like many a fashionista, bought logo-covered everything, including my first Louis Vuitton bag. Continue reading Logo Fever
A few weeks ago, I was invited to the “Meet Your New Jeans With Emily Luciano” event hosted by Topshop Canada and The Hudson’s Bay Company. I hopped at the chance to see Emily Luciano in person, as she is a huge source of fashion inspiration of mine. An Ottawa native, Emily Luciano has grown her Instagram account to a startling 118,000 followers over the course of only one year in addition to a super stylish blog with a readership just as big.

When I started my blog in January 2015, it was simply an outlet for me to express my thoughts and opinions on all things fashion and beauty. It was also a great way to connect with my husband who was on a work assignment in the South Pacific, and with my family living in Europe.
We have a winner! A huge congratulations to Shelley Stott! Thank you to everyone who entered!

Emilie, with her keen eye for fashion and architecture suggested Smudge Beauty Bar, a relatively new spa which opened in Ottawa last year on Dalhousie Street…home to many an up and coming boutique.
