Seeing Stars

While shopping for my Givenchy Antigona years ago, I was debating between the limited edition stars or the classic style. I still daydream about the star details, however, after 5 years I am still loving the simplicity of the original bag design. I tend to choose timeless staples for my core handbags and footwear, then add fun/trendy clothing or small accessories to create an up to date look.  When I saw this star printed dress, it immediately reminded me of that star Antigona that I was torn between. Wearing a dress, blouse or pant that can be layered to change up the look is often a better option than on a pair of shoes or handbag you may get tired of very quickly. 
As someone who is into astrology, I appreciate a well executed whimsical celestial design. It is a fun trend to incorporate into both casual or work wear. A little…

There is More to Personal Style Than Fashion

People often ask me how I would describe my personal style. I feel like that is a loaded question. As a true fashionista I can work with just about anything and find myself drawn to an array of pieces. I'm not overly into trends, but transform my looks to be current. My wardrobe is quite eclectic with many different patterns, colours, textures and styles. Although I can be all over the place with prints and colours, I tend to be drawn to solid neutrals (a lot of black as you all know) and streamlined silhouettes. I like to mix feminine with masculine, so if I wear lace for example, I will pair it with edgy leather pieces / footwear and accessories. That being said, if I had to describe my style in a few words it would be rocker, boho, chic w…

A Weekend in Minneapolis

Image
Minneapolis aka "Twin Cities" (with Saint Paul) is situated on the historical Mississippi River. As it is connected to many waterways, the city was the flour milling capital of the world. Although it continues to be a hub for industries like timber, the city also has a very strong cultural history.  Minneapolis is known as one of the top music cities in America for hip-hop, indie rock and classical music. The music scene in this city was the start to a lot of well known artists including Price, Bob Dylan, and Janet Jackson. 
From famous food markets to architecture and music I have put together a list of some of my must-see's for a weekend in this Midwest metropolis.

As festival season is almost here I notice myself subconsciously incorporating a lot more colour and prints into my wardrobe. With spring comes a transition of fabrics like crepes and cottons for more breathable, flowy vacation or boho vibe. One of my fave classic silhouettes for this season is the maxi skirt. There is something so chic and versatile about a floor length hemline. This silhouette is easy to dress up or down for an effortless look and is comfortable for those hot summer days where you need a little breeze or to keep misquotes from biting your legs :p. Pairing a basic tee or cropped top is perfect for a festival vibe, and on the flip side, it can easily be dressed up with a structured blazer for a more sophisticated office look.  We are seeing a lot of pleated maxi's…
