Thigh High Boots

Lovelies! I know it’s been weeks since I blogged, but I’ve got some really good excuses – life has been keeping me ultra busy! I do have exciting updates to make up for it though 🙂 In the past 3 weeks, I vacationed to Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. I took lots of photos in LA so expect a series of outfit posts! I think I’m going to name it the “Val goes to Cali” series. I’ve also been occupied with paperwork…because I’ll be starting my a new job next week, who’s excited with me?! 🙂 Without deviating any further from the subject – here I have a recent favorite outfit to share featuring my newly purchased thigh-high boots! I’ve been a non-believer of thigh-highs for as long as I can remember, but this season I decided to give this trend a chance, annnnnnd I LOVE them! Whether in leather or suede, flat or platformed, these shoes are statement pieces that are surprisingly functional in cold weather. Pull them over skinny jeans/leggings, with an oversized sweater, or with a cute & …

Super Casual

I’ve not yet expressed this, but I take every opportunity to avoid pants 😛 They are just so limiting! Now because of that, I am very much into casual looks with long sweaters or tees that can be worn as dresses. To me they are much more comfortable than your most stylish jeans. Here’s a basic long hoodie from Forever 21 in color grey, matched with my white Zooshoo sneakers. It’s a perfect look for gloomy & windy summer days, and the comfort is to die for! I am into unique accessories, and obsessed with the color gold this season. This bracelet ring is form Aldo for about $20, I fell in love instantly after seeing it. Here are some more shots of this look. Hope you liked this simple look!

White Coat, Black Dress, Them Collars

Hello beautifuls! If you have seen my earlier post – My Spring Coat, I presented a look which I consider as street style. Here I am back with another way to wear my spring coat. This one is girly 🙂  I’m sure you could have worn any dress inside and it would work fine, but I felt specifically a collar dress works best because the coat’s collar area is extremely simple, and having collars inside would bring attention to that area without it looking too busy. This also gave it a preppy feel, so to bring consistency, I  paired it with some glasses! Another reason I chose this dress, was that its length is about the same as the coat! I can’t quite pinpoint the reason why this is a good thing, but it just looks odd to me if the inside is much longer or shorter than the coat. I wore a pretty necklace under the collar to dress it up, and wore a black watch to match the black & white theme.

Phozzy

I developed a liking for fuzzy sweaters, I actually have it in 3 different colors: black, aqua, & baby pink. To go with the black sweater, there are several plausible choices – Blue Jeans, white jeans, or beige. I decided to pull out my white Armani jeans and I almost regretted the decision immediately – they make you look 10 pounds heavier! I wanted collars to dress up the outfit, but I didn’t want to wear a dress shirt inside because the sweater shouldn’t look any more bloated. So I threw on something like the below 🙂 It is thin with lovely collars. These shoes were from Aldo bought maybe 3 years back. It was one of my first pairs of ankle boots. It is leather quality, still in style to this day, and very comfortable. (Big fan of shoelaces btw) This cute little purse is from Kate Spade. It was from a shopping spree in Buffalo. It is very thin and small in size, perfect for a nightout. I bought them because they look like the Eiffel …

Black & White. Color.

Hi Lovelies! Before I went out, I decided to capture my outfit of the day. Did I mention here I am wearing simply the coolest earring? Four butterflies hangs on it! I am wearing a long furry sweater/cardigan on this chilly day. It is comfortable, it is warm, it is fashionable – all that come at one cost, it sheds fur! But I still love it regardless 🙂 I remember running between two malls to find my size (this is $50 from Garage!). Inside I am wearing a very simple black dress found at a boutique. It is one of my favorite styles but it is a rare find, I bought it with zero hesitation after seeing it. It is high-low, but it is not flow-y nor does it flare out. it is cotton material and although it does not provide a shape, it is slimming 🙂 You must have seen these shoes many times by now (and bag). The MK watch is a new find though! Oh and the necklace, apologies that I did not shoot a …

Fall Chic

Hi lovelies! This was actually a very cold day! But I decided to sacrifice myself for the blog. They were taken nowhere fancy – near my neighborhood 🙂 Here I have a black romper with collar from from a boutique on Queen St, Toronto, matched with a royal blue blazer from H&M, and black ankle heels from Aldo. Cool thing about the romper is definitely the back! Super funky rectangle cutout. It’s a bold look showing back like this, but I considered it versatile because I can simply throw on a top with it, or blazer.   Here’s me trying to pose like a model.  The model shoot continues. I matched my with white leaf earrings for some contrast – they are my current absolute favorites, you will probably see more of them in my future posts. xx.
