OOTD - World Pride 2014

Happy Canada Day y'all! I hope everyone had a blasty-blast at the World Pride festivities that graced Toronto for the past week. It is a beautiful thing to see people, young and old, from all walks of life expressing themselves and celebrating who they are.

I decided to bring you guys my little OOTD from the final day of Pride.

Fun Fact: A torrential downpour ensued almost immediately upon my arrival on Church St. It poured rain for about an hour before the skies opened back up, revealing a most fitting rainbow. It was nothing short of magical, and the perfect way to end an equally magical celebration!

Black On Black On Black

I'm not in mourning, I swear! In my books, it is 110% acceptable to be decked out in head to toe black in the middle of June. It's classic, it's bossy, it's chic, and it screams "Homegirl ain't playin!" without actually screaming at all. A monochromatic look shouldn't limit your personal style or stop you from incorporating your personality into your look. I see it as an opportunity to play with textiles and layering to make things fun!

The best way to amp up a black look is to load up on textiles. The key to a serious black-on-black look, is to create dimension rather than have your individual pieces disappear against each other. In this look I've paired mesh, leather, suede and jersey to create a dimensional black look that has character!

Canadian Tuxedo On Acid

Denim on denim is totally having a moment this spring and I am all about it! This trend is super accessible since most of us already have the denim basics hiding in the backs of our closets. I definitely don't have enough bank to get my hands on the denim delights of Balmain's Spring 2014 Ready to Wear collection, (see my fave look here) but I do have quite the collection of acid wash, which brings us to this outfit. Like Justin and Britney before me,(click here if you don't recall this priceless hollywood gem) I've decided to take it over the top!

PrismTO Exhibition

As some of you may know, I was part of a photography exhibition featured in the Distillery District of Downtown Toronto. One of the greatest and most exciting things that I have ever been a part of, the installation was from April 27th to 30th. With such an important moment for me, we already know that my outfit had to be on point, so I decided to try something that I had never done before in my life... rock a bow tie.

& on that note, I promise more posts are on its way. I have officially completed University, and prepping for this gallery was taking up all my extra time, so now that everything is over I should have some time to get together with Dee & work on some great content for the blog!
