Model of the day – Gigi Hadid
09/03/15 Just this past Sunday, I tuned in to watch the VMA’s just because I was curious to see what Miley Cyrus was wearing, or not wearing. From a fashion point of view, everything was an eyesoar, but I have to hand it to her…she’s pretty confident and she owns it. People will say that it’s for attention, which is probably true but that’s the name of the Hollywood game. It’s a doggy dog world and you have to fight your colleagues for attention and fame. That’s Hollywood reality. I was, of course, tuned in it to see what people were wearing and I came up with 3 outfits. 1) Vanessa Hudgens – Her gown was a dusty rose and she looked like a fairy princess with her hair braided like a crown on top with the added petals. I thought she looked perfectly styled because it matched her aura.   2) Emily Ratajkowski – What I liked about this look was that it was more original than the dresses that we are used to nowadays, the ones that show alot of side boob, deep cleavages and just doesn’t leave much to the imagination. Although this dress had a deep […]

Let It Go…(Closet Purging)
04/25/15 It’s about that time for Spring cleaning. For alot of us, this includes the annual closet purge. And when you have a closet packed with clothes, cleaning out a closet can be a a daunting task. Most of us hold on to things that can be difficult to let go of, maybe because of its sentimental value or maybe it’s simply too comfortable. It could be that scarf that your aunt gave you and expects you to wear it whenever she visits or that t-shirt you wear for lounging hanging by its last threads.  Or maybe it’s that brand new skirt that you bought 2 years ago and were meaning to wear because you promised yourself you’d lose weight. No matter what it is, you’ve gotta figure out what to let go of and what to keep, if it serves you. When I work with clients, I like to give practical tips on what to keep, what to give away and how to wear and maximize already existing items. Here are a few of my do’s and don’ts of a closet purge: Do’s: Do keep items that are classic, timeless pieces that will last you for many seasons (ex. […]
Fashion Do’s and Don’ts 2014
Hello everybody and welcome to my current edition of Fashion Do’s and Don’ts. For the past 2 years, I’ve noticed alor of fashion faux pas observing Winnipeg society. Some get it right and some get it wrooong. The following is a list of my top do’s and don’ts, starting with the don’ts: DON’TS 1) Do not wear pajamas out in public. PLEASE! – Where do I start? The top reason why this would be one of my top don’ts is because pajamas are MEANT FOR INSIDE! For BEDTIME! I get that they’re super comfy but you can wear sweats outside or yoga wear if you reaally wanna go that comfort route. To some, fashion is not a priority, but it simply doesn’t make sense to wear bedtime gear out in the daylight. If you want the world to know that you’ve given up on how you look and don’t care, you’ve suceeded. You haven’t made the effort to look pretty. You’ve gotten too comfy and personally, I think it discourages conscious fashion thinking. Throwing on a pair of jammies? It’s just too easy! Sadly, I once saw a kiosk at Polo Park selling just pj pants, further encouraging the hideous […]
UGGly Winter Boots? Pt. 2 – How to wear them…
Hello and welcome to Part 2 of my homage to Ugg boots. Like I said before in my previous post, I have never been a fan of Uggs, until a short while ago. One of the main reasons why is that, these boots that weren’t very pretty, lasted for so long.  I couldn’t understand it. Maybe I should own a pair myself to realize the true Ugg experience. I get it now. The sheepskin in them are extremely comfy, no matter how Uggly I think they are. People eat them up because they’re easy to throw on. The history of Ugg boots actually dates back to 1978. A fellow named Brian Smith believed that these boots which originated in Australia would be a git in Southern California. He started selling them on the beach and he was right, surfers wore them, surfers’ girlfriends wore them and basically beach bums. They soon became a symbol of the casual Southern Californian lifestyle. A few years later, thanks to Britney Spears and other celebrities, mainstream followed suit and next thing you know, everyone and their little doggies were wearing them. It became a trend that lasted a little too long for my liking. […]
UGGly Winter Boots? Part 1
I don’t know about you, but I’ve just about had it with the cold weather. By this time, most Winnipeggers are pretty sick and tired of the snow and cold. For some, January/February is the time to head out to much warmer places like Mexico or Cuba, rather than stick around for the cold. But for those of us who are stuck here, temperature in the -10 would be like being on a beach. Unfortunately, along with the cold, we are still stuck with wearing layers, snow zone signs, warming up the car for 10 minutes beforehand and tons of snowbanks. For this season, I relish in getting prepared and facing whatever Winnipeg temperatures throw at me. I have to feel warm and wear good footwear in order to brave our temperatures. As a busy mom, I am forever running around and driving, so it’s important for me to be able to wear a sensible pair of boots like Sorels. I’m not talking about Doc Martens either. They are more of a fashion boot than anything and not at all practical for  Winnipeg Winters. And although, not too long ago I wasn’t a fan of Ugg boots. In fact, I was […]

BEP: Supergalactical at Super Bowl 45
I am not a diehard fan of football. I usually just watch it for the halftime performances. And this year, the Black Eyed Peas were the lucky entertainers for Superbowl 45.
Style Faux Pas (What do you think are fashion misses?)
Remember ladies, if you don’t think it looks good, don’t wear it just because it’s the latest trend. But hey, who am I to say, if you’re bold enough and can pull it off to make it your own look, go for it! Trust your style instincts.
