[OUTFIT] A Twist On Leopard Print

When I was in Ottawa St Pattie's day weekend, I went shopping with my mum! As mentioned in a previous post...I found this GREAT shirt at Zara. I fell in love with it simply for the fact that it has a great twist on the popular print, leopard! And when I pulled it off the rack, I noticed the studs on the sort of 70's looking collar. I had to get it! Unfortunately, since I've had it, 3 buttons have fallen off! I've sewn them back on of course, but it is still unfortunate.

 I hope you guys are excited as I am for this! My first giveaway! So very exciting! Exclamation mark! Ok so...the wonderful people over the pond at Rings & Tings sent me a couple lovely pieces of jewellery, including this ring! Now if you read my blog, you may be thinking "doesn't she have one similar?" Yes, I do, the marvellous YSL ring my handsome boyfriend got me for my 19th birthday. Which quite frankly, I am still in shock he get it for me.

[FASHION] Favourite Trend - Neon vs Pastels/Neutrals

Although I haven't seen a lot of this year, I'm completely in love with it! If you pair the right neon colours with the right pastel or neutral colour, it can look absolutely amazing! I've only found two examples of it so far, but hopefully more interesting combinations will come up soon! So mix it up! Both neons and pastels are in for spring, why not pair them together?

And heck! It even works for home decor.

[OUTFIT] Too Hot for a Wool Blazer

As the title suggests...it is far too warm for this blazer! I'd seen it at Club Monaco a while ago, and LOVED it, but ran away when I saw the price. I went shopping with my mom, and found it on the sale rack! Plus, being a student, you get 20% off, PERKS! (that I will greatly miss once I'm finished school...) Anyway, I was so excited. It'll be good for next fall. Or when this wonderful early summer weather we're having decides to turn back into real spring weather (to which I will be very upset about). 
I love the faux leather on the shoulders and lapels.

[VIDEO] Easy Smokey Eye

Here's a video I made out of boredom earlier! YAY! I hope you guys like it. It's a really easy smokey eye look. PS...I make a lot of goofy faces in this video, I'm sorry...


I like to hold my ponytail is seems...anyway! This is what I wore on day 3 of Toronto Fashion Week. I think I went for a sort of glam rock kind of look? I don't know...I just thought it was fun. This was the last day I went to TFW, I had to go to class today, and tomorrow I'm headed to Ottawa for the weekend. I got lots of great street style shots yesterday as well, which you can take a look at here.

[STREET STYLE] Toronto Fashion Week - Day 3

Here we are at day 3 of Toronto Fashion Week! I didn't see any shows today, but I still wanted to head down to get some more street style shots. Another beautiful day! So many lovely colours were worn. I didn't stay quite as long as yesterday, but I'm still glad I got as many shots as I did. Anyway, enjoy!



I'm just about to head out to day 3 of Toronto Fashion Week. I know...a lot of posts about it, but it's just so exciting! I'm not going to any shows today, but I want to get some more street style shots! You guys really seem to like those posts, so there are more on the way! Today, I'm kind of going with a bit of a glam rock look? I don't know...but it's fun! And I like it! I'll have some full outfit photos by the end of the day. Stay posted!

....I should really take this nail polish off


Now....I really wish my camera was good enough to take amazing photos like this! Hopefully I can upgrade at some point in time. This photo was taken by George Pimentel, who was taking photos for MasterCard. I actually got a 20$ prepaid MasterCard for having my photo taken. I was simply happy to do it, but the added bonus is pretty great!

[VIDEO] Sid Neigum & Chloe comme Parris

Here are two videos of the Sid Neigum, and the Chloe comme Parris shows that I put together! I'm sorry the photos in the videos aren't the greatest of quality...I was simply trying to watch the show at the same time. Both shows were fantastic! The Sid show had some great shapes and textures. Very different and interesting. I was completely in love with the CCP show! Every single piece that came out, I said "I want that!....for real....ask Ainslie

[STREET STYLE] Toronto Fashion Week - Day 2

Today I had the privilege to check out day 2 of Toronto Fashion Week! It was so much fun to see everyone so dressed up. I got to see the Sid Neigum show, as well as the Chloe comme Parris. I'll have other posts with photos from their show coming up! This post is really just about the street style at the event. So many amazing outfits! Everyone looks so chic chic chiiiic

Quick disclaimer....all of these photos were taken by me! Emilie Young!

[FASHION] Jean Jacket

FINALLY! I found one, that was used, and affordable. I didn't want a brand new one because it would be really stiff. I went to so many "vintage" stores, and they were far too expensive. Going to thrift stores, I never found any I liked. So, yesterday my friends and I were walking on Queen West. We walked by a store that was having a store closing sale, and we thought we'd take a look. Once inside, I didn't really see anything I fancied. But then! I found this Gap jean jacket. Yes, it isn't Levis (which I would have preferred) but it has the shape I wanted. Only 10$! So I had to snag it. Quite a long story for a jean jacket wouldn't you say...

I do apologize for my goofy looking face...hehehe
I'll have some outfit posts for you soon!

[OUTFIT] Newly Wedged

I was in Kingston for a good part of the weekend visiting my brother, as well as celebrating my grandmother's birthday. We went out for lunch and had some very delicious Indian food. With my parents in town, we stopped by Urban Outfitters. I didn't really needed anything, but still felt the need to browse (of course!) and found these amazing wedges! I put them on, and right away my mom saw how excited they made me. They're just so nice!

Oh! and of course, it was so beautifully warm today! I was so excited to be able to wear nice clothing without covering it up with a jacket.

[OUTFIT] Sugarlips Aviation Blouse

I was completely thrilled when Sugarlips invited me to be part of their blogger affiliate program. Yesterday, I received this shirt in the mail! I couldn't wait to take photos! But had to wait until today. Luckly! It is incredibly warm and sunny in Toronto today. I hope it stays like this for a while...anyway! Here's the top they sent me...

Slightly bowler, slightly sailor, this button up has a different feel depending on how you style it. The light fabric makes it perfect for spring/summer. I love it so much!

[OUTFIT] Creature of the Wild

Aaaaaaaaaand we're back! Reading week is now over, and hopefully I'll be able to blog more regularly! I had a great week off. Lots of time spent sleeping, and hanging with my handsome boyfriend. Today I made sure to wear my fuzzy vest under my coat. It was quite a chilly one! For the photo, I decided to pair my leopard print wedges, to add some extra wildness to the look.
