10 Jackets You Need This Fall/Winter!

I've compiled a list of must have outerwear items for this season! The Gods have blessed us with the gift of September which means one thing: impending layering. It's the most wonderful time of the year! I've taken some of my fave trends and hunted down some interesting pieces that fall under each but still hold their own. I also tried to include some under-the-radar lines that deserve some love!

Atypical Jays Gear

I find that fans of our city's sports teams tend to be very possessive of their fandoms and are constantly up in arms over the hordes of Jays or Raptors fans that suddenly appear when the teams see success. I personally see no harm in celebrating our cities successes whether you're a ~hardcore fan since day one~ or someone who is enthusiastic about Toronto wins in general. I'm 'sporting' (horrible pun from the Dee George school of comedy) a pastel pink striped Jays cap and an outfit reminiscent of something my mother may have worn to a game in the 90s. Some may call matching your hat to your shirt to your nails to your toes, a fashion don't. Ignore them, if it tickles your fancy, it's always fashion DO.

M.A.C x Selena 2016

Selena Quintanilla's legacy and influence has transcended generations and her legions of loyal fans campaigned for MAC Cosmetics to honour the iconic star with a Selena inspired collection. To the delight of Latina women everywhere (including myself) who grew up admiring Selena, MAC obliged and announced that in collaboration with the late star's sister Suzette Quintanilla, a MAC x Selena collection will be released in late 2016.

March 31st, 2015 marked 20 years since the passing of music, fashion, and beauty icon Selena Quintanilla Perez. This year I am 23, the same age Selena was at the time of her passing. At 23, she had won a Grammy, transcended genres, became one of the most successful musicians in Tejano, a genre previously dominated by men, owned several boutiques in Texas, sold out the 60,000 seat Houston Astrodome, launched a clothing line, and was about to release a highly anticipated english crossover album. Although her momentous life and career were tragically cut short in 1995, her legacy lives on.

Mauve Lips with Yaby Cosmetics

I've been really big on mauve coloured lips lately. If you're olive complexioned, depending on the shade of mauve, you've got that 'your lips but better' shade or the perfect nude! 

The struggle is real when hunting for a nude lip colour if your aren't the fairest of them all, per se. I love using Yaby Cosmetics for this reason. Their shades have been developed to compliment a variety of complexions. No face left behind!

More on Yaby and a few of my fave mauve shades after the jump!
