Spring Camel Coat I

“In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” -Mark Twain. A quote that cannot describe Toronto weather better. It’s almost mid April, and there’s been an uncanny mixture of sunlight, rain and snow (yes, snow, as matter of fact I’m seeing snowflakes outside right at this moment). I like mild seasons, but I’ll take Fall over Spring any day – it’s just a lot more mature and stable. Although, if I were to give Spring some credit, I do think it’s quite a symbolic season. To me it can symbolize a fresh start, perhaps aspire for something new and adventurous along with the blooming trees and flowers; it goes without saying that it ain’t easy to start anything, hence it isn’t always going to be petals and sunshine. There will be rainy chilly days, but we’ll adapt, and eventually smell the petrichor that accompanies the rain. How can we moderate the bumpiness of spring you ask? The answer is obvious! – be stylish, with some spring camel coats :-). Some fashion trends fade, some make come backs with time, and some others have staying …

Sleeveless Waterfall Coat

Temperature in Toronto has been consistently floating around 5 degrees and it actually brings such a fashion challenge. What the weather entails is that I need to prepare for layers, especially since it’s too warm for winter parkas and too cold for spring coats. I’ve never been a fan of layering because while doing it right can be chic and powerful, it’s also easy to look chunky and noisy. However the most important thing that I’d like to promote is to obviously stay warm! The general formula includes – warm and comfy piece on your skin, like silk/cotton undershirt + a decently thick piece such as a hoodie/sweater/cardigan + a 3rd conclusive piece in wool material which keeps you dry and warm + optional step to accessorize to your heart’s content with scarves and boots. Here I’m wearing a long body hugging turtleneck  sweater, wool sleeveless waterfall coat, and some black chunky heels to finish off the look. I definitely think this outfit is more fall appropriate rather than for spring, but I was just so in love with my virgin sleeveless coat – it’s one of those pieces that …

Neutral Valentine’s

Happy Valentine’s everyone! Hope you got to spend it with the one you love, and if you’re single like me, definitely don’t let anything stop us from being happy on Valentine’s Day! I came across this article on WikiHow on How to Be Happy Being Single on Valentine’s Day, thought I’d share with you single beautifuls out there ❤ Unfortunately I don’t have an festive valentine’s outfit for you guys.Instead this was another neutral outfit that I thought would look cute in the winter. I’ve always had a thing for fuzzy and comfortable sweaters. Although I have to say it’s not always the most obvious choice to match a chunky sweater with cotton material skirt. It’ll generally create a top or bottom heavy look. I threw on a pair of ankle boots in black to balance out this top heaviness through symmetry. You guys already know I love shades, and grey is my new favorite from the family. For accessories, especially sweater accessories, always stick with simplicity! This isn’t a plain outfit due to the furry feels, so accessories aren’t center of the attention, they …

Turtleneck Weather

Happy Sunday everyone! Let’s speak turtle neck. (I found something interesting today called the Turtle Neck club for fashion elites, hahaha genius) I’ve always doubted turtlenecks on me because I felt like it only suits others with thin sharp faces. I still think that,I just refused to listen to my fashion instincts any longer and miss out on the countless turtleneck benefits. Brownie points for getting out the comfort zone? 🙂 Turtleneck benefits include: It’s hella warm! Enables the classic high longevity silhouette If it’s a tight one (unlike this one), it draws attention to the bust area and accentuates the feminine figure Easy to match, great layering piece and works with pretty much any pants Easiest way to a sleek and fashionable vibe in winter, always The interesting thing about fashion is that it doesn’t take someone who’s gifted with sense of style to be fashionable. Sometimes it just takes someone a little different, a little bold, who can back that all up with confidence. Hope you lovelies liked this look, and my DW watch! (I finally got one! Also in a different …

Styling Adidas (Pt. I)

Adidas has always been awesome with its legendary classics. But starting a few years ago, they’ve been getting even better. A shift in style that coincided with the 2010 hiring of creative director Dirk Schönberger has made them one of the most popular brands in the world. I too, have been preaching Adidas sneakers, which will soon present themselves on my blog. But for now, I wanted to show you guys the Adidas original printed tee that I got my hands on 🙂 It’s indeed a sports brand, but that doesn’t mean its product can’t be a fashion accessory. I’ve always really liked the Adidas logo design, may it be Original or Performance. I’ve captured another look with the same Adidas tee. For such a versatile piece, I must wear it to my heart’s content. Please stay tuned for Styling Adidas Part II 🙂
