Velvet over-the-knee-boots

For the past few years, OTK boots have been dominating footwear. This weekend, I styled a pair of velvet over-the-knee-boots c/o DSW Canada for a chic fall look. Perfect with a suede miniskirt or over jeans, these boots add personality to any outfit. dsw october (3 of 5)velvet over-the-knee-boots and gucci marmont shoulder bag I'm wearing a white blouse from H&M, suede miniskirt from Forever 21, velvet over-the-knee-boots c/o DSW Canada, and a Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag.

Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? DIY Halloween Costume

This Halloween, I went as Carmen Sandiego. As a young girl, there were so few shows that featured female leads kicking butt, and that's likely why I loved Sailor Moon, Power Rangers and Carmen Sandiego so much. I'm jealous of girls growing up with Moana today! Anyways my Carmen Sandiego Halloween costume was easy to create, and wearable for daily life too!

I had a bit of difficulty finding a red trench coat, but luckily, Amazon had the perfect red trench coat for under $75. I already had a red hat, but this felt fedora would be an even better match. For my yellow scarf, I picked it up at Obsessions Fashion in the PATH, but this yellow scarf is a similar option. go go gadget (7 of 7) Daniel dressed up as Inspector Gadget! In my mind, I like to think Carmen Sandiego ran off with the goofy, loveable Inspector Gadget.

SoHo Blues

One of my favourite memories from my trip to NYC this Spring was spending the day in SoHo. The weather was gorgeous, and we had so much fun exploring the shops, sights and eats.

Hot pink suit

I had an Elle Woods moment this weekend. I can't believe it, but I'm the proud owner of a hot pink suit. This gorgeous set is c/o Talbots and it combines a bright shade of magenta with a clean, modern cut. talbots pink suit (4 of 10)talbots pink suit (8 of 10) talbots pink suit (5 of 10) This Talbots blazer is part of their 70th Anniversary Collection. The brand pulled 7 different pieces from 7 different decades of modern, classic style. For the 1980s, they brought back the power suit in an eye-catching colour in the Exclusive Anniversary Collection Blazer. The 1980s power suit was iconic, and I love how this one reimagines the silhouette with a more relaxed silhouette. Coloured suits were definitely more popular back then, and I love how this one is unapologetically bold. I'm obsessed with the thick fabric and gold button details. It's so preppy and lovely. I paired the Anniversary Collection blazer with the Hampshire Ankle Pants to create my hot pink suit. I love these pants with their straight cut and modern cropped length. I'd love to wear both pieces separately too, to create ample looks for the office and nights out. I pulled the look together with my Gucci Marmont belt for a touch of glam, that also complimented the blazer's gold buttons. [show_shopthepost_widget id="2866302"]

Meridian Spending Challenge: How to live on $100 for one week

Living in the city can be challenging financially. With rent, transit and entertainment, costs can add up quick. I was excited to take on the Meridian Spending Challenge to see how to live on $100 for one week. meridian pics (7 of 7) meridian pics (2 of 7) If you've been following my blog, you know that I can be frugal. While I love luxury pieces, I love a good deal or steal. This dress is adorable... and wait for it - it was $16 from Wal-Mart. While picking up groceries I snagged it up, because I loved the print and mock neck style (similar dress online here). I paired it with a pair of cheap and chic Just Fab velvet shoes (similar pink velvet heels), and amped up the look with my luxe new Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag.
