February Mood Board

February 18 Mood Board

As January comes to a close I have my eyes set on Spring. I start the transition early with soft pink shades, blush flowers and a hint of sparkle and shine. Visions of edgy yet romantic looks that define my idea of urban romance fill my mind. Leather layered over sheer blouses and textural loafers are a go to look. Velvet and metallics are a must have in my wardrobe. I anticipate the sunnier days and cool, Spring breeze in my hair.

Warm hues, soft florals and lots of texture fill my mind’s eye this season. Layers of pretty vintage silhouettes paired with suede accessories, working together to create the perfect look for frolicking in Central Park among the red and orange leaves. Coffee stops at the cutest cafes are a must, featuring everything cinnamon and spice of course. I bundle up as I look forward to the chillier air.

Fall, you are welcome here.



Take your “nine to five” look to the next level with the classic yet cutting edge looks of the Hot Off the Presses collection. Clean silhouettes meet bold prints and a pop of cobalt, while metallic details and unexpected cut-outs keep these pieces working overtime. Calling all girl bosses: this curation is especially for you.

The New Classic with Warby Parker

“What do you get when you mix acetate and polished metal, put them in a time machine programmed to the year 1955, and refresh them for 2017? These.” – Warby Parker 

This just in: Warby Parker has the latest and greatest in eye wear to share with us, and it includes a trip back to 1955.

Retro silhouettes meet modern materials in this “of the moment” collection freshly launched by the revolutionary eye wear company.

Made for the everyday guy and gal these vintage shades and eye glasses not only come in several instagram worthy styles and colour ways, they won’t leave your wallet feeling empty.  Warby Parker aims to deliver quality glasses without the astronomical pricing, and they’ve done just that.

Looking for some reasons to justify purchasing a few new pairs? Take some inspiration from the looks I curated below with some of my favourites:

Look 1: A pop of cobalt with Addie

How fun is the summery hue of these sunnies? Paired with a muted, monochromatic look these shades are sure to be the center of attention. Throw in a pop of yellow for an added bit of zest. The only thing cooler than this look is the iced mojito you’ll be sipping while you sport it.

Look 2: That’s A Wrap with Eliot

There’s nothing more lovely than a wrap dress for summer! Here, a simple black and white print is rejuvenated with a geometric straw bag, casual everyday sneakers, and of course, vintage-esque specs that make your look a total throwback to the carefree summers of the 50’s. The tortoise shell pattern on these glasses is bold enough to add depth to your look while still being neutral enough to remain versatile. The ideal accessory when looking to spice up a simple, classic look.

Ready to add some 1950’s vibes into your wardrobe?

I’ll see you there.

Warm hues, bleached denim and bold prints take center stage as Summer kicks off, full force. Think sunshine, sunflowers and everything 70’s-esque. Skate shoes and bold makeup add modern twists, while paisleys and vintage accesories keep things rooted in a retro theme. Maybe it’s the warmer weather or maybe it’s the onset of festival season, but something has me nostalgic for a groovier time. Bring on the flared pants and fringe galore.




Trail blazer: spring 2015 lookbook

It’s almost here!

Spring will soon be upon us, and I’m already dreaming of sunny days,fresh flowers, and sun dresses.

To kick start the new season I have my newest lookbook to share with you all today, featuring looks for Spring!

I present, Trail blazer, a free-spirited,earthy Spring shoot. The innocence of youth meets rustic bohemian vibes in the setting of a cedar forest to create a laid back, care-free look that’s all the rage this season. Fringe, neutral tones and light-wash denim are the focal points of this look, as girls are encouraged to embrace their fun loving side and forget about their daily worries just long enough to take a frolic through the forest.

The Ellie Suit

I don’t know about you, but the first thing that comes to mind when I think of swimsuits is bone chilling rain and December.

Jokes, that’s not true at all.

But despite the unfitting weather, my fashion design class was hard at work on swim suits last month.

Before the Christmas break, we finished off our third semester of fashion design with a swim wear project. Each of us was responsible for designing and constructing a suit, cover-up, and swim wear catalog.

This was one of my favourite projects so far, and I’m really happy with how my suit turned out.


The Ellie suit is bubbly, frilly, and fun. Designed for a junior contemporary market, the Ellie suit encompasses all the fun of being a girl, while incorporating neon colours, a flirty silhouette, and just a little bit of sparkle.

Now all I need is some warm weather, a beach house, a pina colada, and a cute life guard to create the perfect scenario to wear my suit.

What’s that you say? I live in Vancouver?

Can’t a girl at least dream?

Hope some sunshine comes your way,
