Black Sheep | UNIF x Urban Outfitters


I am obsessed with this oversized faux-shearling moto jacket by UNIF! I love the relaxed fit because it is the perfect layering piece to stay warm AND stay fly in. The stark contrast between the black detail and soft cream faux-shearling highlights the motorcycle cut of the jacket perfectly. I paired it with an all-black look and my go-to chunky knit scarf to keep with the cream theme.

In an outfit like this that is short of vibrancy by way of colour, it's fun to play around with texture. The pony hair handbag, crushed velvet leggings, angora cap, and faux shearling jacket make what could be an inherently yawn worthy colour combo, fun and interesting!

Feelin' Blue




An OOTD dabbling in pastels and 90s silhouettes, and a questionable outfit choice in wake of a snow storm. 

This Fall/Winter has been all about pastels which is awesome because you'll be able to carry some of your favourite pieces over for spring! This outfit is a step away from the smart wool coats and collegiate inspired looks in pastel hues that have gained massive popularity this season. When it comes to colour trends, it's not crucial to adhere to how you've seen them represented on runways and by bloggers. Get creative, be yourself, and translate it to something that feels like you.

I like to keep it retro inspired, so I paired this UNIF mock neck cropped knit with my favourite vintage acid wash jeans and my white on white leather Chuck Taylors. I added punches of black in my hat and handbag to break up the look.

YEEZY SEASON 1 | Adidas x Kanye West FW15 RTW


Adidas Originals x Kanye West Fall 2015... One word: OBSESSED.

You know you're in for one one heck of a show when seated front row are Anna Wintour, Jay Z, Queen Bey, Rihanna, Kim K and P Diddy.

After watching the show I was reminded of the creative genius that is Kanye. The simplicity and rawness of the show is what captured me. The line was showcased so amazingly, with the detail of an individual piece being the highlight of each look.

The theme was utility with parkas, utility vests, industrial backpacks and inspired work boots. The collection touched on the aviation trend as well with jackets falling under the same overall muted colour story, though punches of bright were incorporated in all the right places.

The styling was so minimalistic which is what kept your focus as a spectator right where it needed to be. Of course it wouldn't be Kanye's style to miss an opportunity to promote his other projects as well. Luckily, it flowed flawlessly with his presentation. The debut of his track “Wolves” featuring Sia and Vic Mensa tied the show together perfectly.

Broke&Living Pop-Up Shop



Our friends at Broke&Living held a charitable toque-centric pop-up shop last week at the Dundas West location of Sole Survivor Shoe Repair. For every Toque sold, one was donated to Youth Without Shelter, a Toronto based charity for the benefit of homeless youth in distress.

A charming event complete with a DJ and the chicest balloons ever, brought out friends and fans alike to support the cause in wake of an oncoming snow storm. Not to worry, the toques being donated will not boast the wooden "broke" plaque pictured below. Plain black toques will be donated to the respective charitable organization.

Check out brokeandliving.com and fall in love with their current collection of vinyl, wool, and brocade apparel. Visit www.yws.on.ca to find out what you can do to help homeless youth in Toronto.
