I posted a video a few posts ago about collars, and I do really love them! I find they can accent an outfit perfectly. There is such a variation of styles that can make any outfit from preppy to edgy. It's really the perfect piece to add to any ensemble.
Detached collars are great fun too! If you have any collared shirt, and you may not like the fit of it, just cut off the collar. Embellish it anyway you'd like and you can wear it with any shirt, sweater, or dress.

I was at Yorkdale today (once again) shopping with my friend Talia. I had remembered about the Decolette lipstick Jenn from clothesencounters wears a lot. It's such a lovely shade and had to look into it. I tried it out, and loved it! I also a gift certificate to Sephora from Christmas, so it worked out perfectly. From the photos, it looks quite pinkish, but it's actually a little darker and has the slightest hint of brown to it. It's nice to finally have a lipstick that is a little bit more neutral, and not so out there! But it still gives my lips that extra little umph!
This is just a post about me complaining really...I'm dying for it to be sunny outside! I still haven't really gotten the chance to wear my new sunglasses. I keep putting them on around the house, as silly as it sounds, but I'm just very excited to wear them. Can we just skip the next few months and have it be the end of March? So it can start getting extra warm out for some sweater weather? Mmk thaaanks.

I was at Yorkdale today to meet up with one of my friends Jamie. Once she hopped on the bus, I decided to take a look around. I ended up at Zara, where they had plenty of great sales! I'd been look for a wide brimmed fedora hat for a while, but couldn't find any that fit well/properly. Finally! At Zara, in the sale section, I found this lovely hat. Navy blue, with a light blue ribbon. It fit perfectly! I had to get it, and the best part about it? It was only $11!

I was going to to do more school style street style...but I didn't really have much time! I got to school just in time for class, so I didn't get as many photos as I wanted. Here are a couple! And I promise I will get more soon. These are a few of my friends from school who have wonderful senses of style!
Dianne's lovely necklace
There will be more to come! I promise!

I don't know if this is definite trend for the spring/summer season, but I've been seeing it a lot on Tumblr. Tops, bottoms, dresses, etc, all with this sort of thick lace. It looks really elegant and pairs nicely with something simple. I also recently got a top with this sort of style, from Topshop. You can take a look at it in this post: From Dark to Light.
Finally! I've got pants that are long enough for me! And they are just oh so stylish. They're the Rochelle Leggings from Club Monaco, and I'm in LOVE with them! They're so comfy and interesting. The best part about it all? They're long enough! They actually cover my ankles! And this makes me so very excited.

I was initially going to get the Ray Ban Meteor's. They were ready at the cash and everything! Then I noticed these lovelies. I tried them on, and I instantly fell in love! I love the big bold shape of them.
I'll have better photos to share soon! Hopefully with some new looks for Lookbook.

Like most other posts like this, I saw it on Tumblr, loved it! And I had to share it here. I love the simpleness of the top with the black collar and heather grey. The added sort of crinkled ruffles adds such a nice umph! to the whole thing. It's really quite interesting.

At home, I was a smidge bored. I thought I'd throw and outfit together quickly and take a couple photos. I was hoping to wear my Wildfox Diamond Sweater (sort of like this, but with long sleeves) on top of the button up, but it made my shoulders look a little strange, and decided against it.

I got this necklace yesterday from Forever21, and right away thought of this outfit to put it with. I think it complements the peachy colour of the sweater and the grey well. I was first going to pair it with a denim circle skirt I have, but it didn't really give good shape, so paired it with my button shorts instead.

I've been watching lots of videos by the ladies at clothesencounters. I love all the ideas and outfits they put together. Always so chic and trendy. One thing I've come to notice a lot, is their choice in lipstick. They're all so lovely! My favourite right now is the Decolette by Sephora that Jenn wears a lot. I might have to get myself some. It's subtle, but gives your lips a lovely shade of pink. This is my favourite video thus far by them. Jenn portrays many different ways to wear collars in an outfit, and they're all fabulous!

As many of you may know, I almost got in a pretty big bike accident a few months ago, which resulted in snapping my Ray Ban Wayfarer's in half. It was a sad sad day. I haven't found a new pair to replace them, until now! I've discovered that Ray Ban has a new style of sunglasses called Meteor. Looking at them, I find they're sort of a cross between the Wayfarers and the Club Masters. I really like the look of them, and I really hope I can get my hands on some tortoise shell ones!
I was at Topshop today, and after exchanges my brother's shirt, I decided to take a look upstairs. There were lots of great reductions! I started picking stuff off the rack like crazy. I tried on a few things, and I didn't think I'd like this shirt, but I thought it gave a very neat effect. I thought I'd pair it with Media lipstick from MAC to give it a strong contrast.

I've got all the materials to recreate this shirt, I just need to figure out the proper way to do it. I can easily do the slits in the shoulders, I just couldn't find my fabric scissors at the moment, so I'll do it tomorrow. As for the buttons, my friend Ainslie let me go through her big bag of buttons. I found these lovely gold ones! I think they would complement the purple quite wonderfully. In the photo of the shirt, it looks slightly more pinkish than the actual colour. I have horrible lighting in my room to take a photo with the proper colour (without flash...) but I'll be sure that once it's complete, to photograph it outside, with better lighting!
Ok so as mentioned, the colour is actually almost like a royal purple. I'm pretty sure the fabric is silk, if not...it's very good fake silk. Found at VV Boutique for $5.99!
These are the buttons! One problem....the button holes are a lot smaller than the buttons...hopefully I can figure something out that won't ruin the whole shirt! Because it would look so neat with them.

I wanted to share with all of you a lovely Lookbook follower of mine, Florence-Olivia. She's from Montreal and has one of the most chic sense's of style I've seen in a long time! Pairing simple pieces with a pop of glitter, to fabulously wearing all black. She's definitely an up and comer on Lookbook, so you best be keeping an eye out for her!
