#FeatureFriday: Julianne Buchholz, Haute Couture Fashion Designer

I love haute couture. It’s fashion at its finest…true art. From Alexander McQueen to Dior, haute couture has proven to be an art form so beautiful and unique, that I often look at these creations in wonder while marvelling “How did they do that?” and “I’ve never seen fabric so beautiful!”

Oscars 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

As we all know, this year’s Oscars Award Show was “interesting”. With the uproar over the lack of diversity of nominees (#OscarsSoWhite), to the frankly, quite boring selection of movies for Best Picture, I didn’t really plan on watching.

I couldn’t help but tune in though at 11:30pm, just to see my boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio win his much-deserved Oscar. In actuality, I cheered so loud when he won that I woke up my husband. Hey! LEO DESERVED IT!   Continue reading Oscars 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

#TRENDING: My Favourite Fall Nail Colours (Hint – The Darker, The Better)

After a summer of non-stop corals, fuchsias, pale pinks and summery blues, I am ready for my beloved dark nail polishes. Since Chanel debuted their fabulous (and my most favourite) Vamp colour back in 1994, dark, moody nails have become commonplace in any fashionista’s nail polish arsenal.

My Big BAG REVEAL!!!

Hi all!

Before I decided to buckle down and start saving for my beloved Chanel bag, I splurged on a new bag from Fashionphile!

Let me know what you think! A future blog post is coming up on why I chose this particular bag (had been meaning to buy it for years) and its interesting history!

Thanks for watching!  What bags are you guys salivating over? Let me know in the comments!

Crop Tops & Midi Skirts – My New Best Friends

“Crop top” – two little innocuous words that strike fear into the hearts of most women. I understand. I was never really a fan of exposing my “hamburger processor” for the world to see. As your typical North American female, I was concerned with how that looked and frankly, how that style came across to others – me waltzing around at “my age” in Britney Spear’s favourite uniform.

Blogger Preview: Banana Republic Pre-Fall Event!

I was thrilled to be invited to a special breakfast event this morning to preview the Banana Republic Pre-Fall Collection.  My sweet friend Marilou of 20 York Street extended the invite to me and I hopped at the chance to go.

I got up bright and early this morning to attend the 7:30am event and got a tour of the new collection and tried on just about each new piece. This collection features lots of blush pink colours, flowy fabrics, beautiful delicate prints and shots of army green and navy were punctuated throughout.
