Paris Avec Moi

On me: top & skirt HM,  ear cuff accessorize 
Photography & Makeup: Melissa Reggan

Here's a mini set of portraits Melissa shot of me during our meet up in Paris.
If any of you followed my journey to Europe last summer, you may know Melissa and I collaborated on several outfit posts.
(view here: Jungle Fever & Meow?)
This time round we shot around Melissa's neighbourhood, where I understood the appeal / simplicity of good lighting and plain walls.

The outfit agenda? To travel around without having any forms of restriction while channelling some minimalistic vibes.
Originally I wore this outfit with a pair of croc patterned slip on kicks (view here), but decided the outfit would suit some heeled sandals for the evening agenda. Usually I'm not a fan of sheer shirts, because it means I have to wear an extra layer of clothing underneath, and when one is travelling they sweat... Alot.
Sweating + tight clothing don't sit well with me, and when I'm out I enjoy not having to worry about the clothes i'm running around / trying to pose in.
Even so, the shirt was a perfect loophole. 
It was indeed sheer, but manageable enough to be worn with a bralette. 
Till next time lovelies!

It has been a surreal and beautiful September/October, and if any of you have been following me on Instagram (view here), you would know that it's been hectic these past two months.
University is an interesting experience and a restricting one for blogging, so I may post less frequently until I learn to manage my abilities in math. 
Don't fret though, you can keep up with me via Tumblr (view here), Twitter (view here) or Instagram where I post most of my day to day activities and musings.
With that being said, heres a little snippet of an entertaining car ride with several babes post Vancouver Fashion Week.
I never believed I would be an attendee, so I'm truly grateful to those who have motivated and pushed me in times of conflict. 

For the night's outfit, I decided to revisit a favourite playsuit I wore over summer, paired with a leather jacket and heeled boots. 

These boots have been a current obsession of mine, since the knee high boots I usually don to school and everywhere else has no heel, and who doesn't love heels?
I can even run in them. 
Yes, finding shoes that one can run in incase of emergency is bliss.
Especially when one is late.
Till next time lovelies!

On me: button up, bikini top Victoria Secret, shorts UrbanPlanet & flip flops Ardene

I know it's almost the end of September, which means time to layer up in sweaters and boots,
but I couldn't resist posting these photos Christy took of me during Summer.
Given my track record with makeup, I usually end up getting koala eyes at the end of every event.
Therefore if you notice a lack of eye liner or eye visibility its because I didn't plan for any of this.
It was around mid-day when we shot this, and as you can tell we weren't ready, but 
I rarely goto the beach, so doing cliche things such as reading and going for gelato was a great way to end summer!
Till next time lovelies!

As common knowledge, fashion week is an excuse where fashionistas, bloggers, and anyone of the sort can dress up to the nines. With Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, it's hard to ignore the epidemic/craze over the street styles and particular "ootd" donned that week. 
Thanks to Vancouver Fashion Week, I'll now have a platform to showcase this outfit. 
Along with my recent marble obsession, I've also been in love with leaf prints, and decided this dress would be a great way to showcase that. The color of the leaves were a unique shade of green that immediately caught my eye. Of course, this look wouldn't be complete without Elizabeths incredible makeup skills. The lipstick and eyeliner added the right amount of edge/flair into the outfit, giving it less of a girly vibe. 
This was the finale look I shot with Elizabeth in the VanDusen Botanical Garden Series, and hopefully she and I will collaborate again in the future!
Till next time lovelies!
