Last week something awesome happened – Viktor & Rolf’s Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren stopped by The Room at The Bay while on a press visit to Toronto…and I got to meet them! Dreams do come true…for real!
The party was incredible! A string quartet played some modern tunes, there was plenty of yummy Perrier-Jouët bubbly to go around, and the crowds were dressed to the nines (The Room parties are always great for people-watching!). Bonnie Brooks was there, as were Stacey Kimmel, Rufus Wainwright, and Jeremy Laing…oh my!
As for my outfit…I decided to go less formal in my fave Club Monaco faux leather skirt, a soup tee under my trusty moto jacket, a pair of my new fave shoes from Aldo x Preen capsule collection, and a sparkly necklace to dress it up. Funny enough, I ran into Anita Clarke at the party, and we were both wearing the same shoes AND the same clutch from ela handbags! Twinsies! Well…except Anita was wearing a gorgeous Roland Mouret, while I was wearing Forever 21. But still…great minds think alike…and also, this totally shows off the versatility of fun accessories, non?
After having a quick moment alone with the belles of the ball (they were super-duper nice, by the way), my friends and I continued to mingle, checking out the new Viktor & Rolf spring collection, and making our dream wishlists, which included the clothes off designers’ backs, because those adorable embroidered jeans they both wore (one with mustaches, and the other with sunglasses) were just too awesome for words. Alas…I never got the courage to ask them about their jeans, so they stayed firmly in my dreams. But hey, Viktor and Rolf…if you see this…I’d love to do a Sisterhood of Travelling Pants thing with you. And though I’m not exactly sure how it works, I think we could start by you sending me your adorable jeans, and me wearing them…Ok? Sounds good to me.

“WHAT can I wear – Me, in NYC, asking this! – to sing lead in an up-and-coming band? It’s winter: I was thinking leather pants – but I can’t find any! Tried our H&M – no. Tried Gap: chunky motorcycle leather pants that make my petite frame look lumpy. So I’m just going for slim stretchy pants – unless you can suggest something. Since it gets really hot under the lights, I favor sleeveless tops – and my arms are pretty good b/c I take kung fu. The look I’m trying for is a cross between rocker and the Lumineers/hipsters. I do have awesome sandals (black strappy ones with silver studs) or good, utilitarian-but-feminine boots (black, pointy). Hair? Bangs or no? Short or as long as I can get it? Makeup?” – Suze

Even though my December getaway was less than a month away, I am ready for another trip. Looking at these photos, I wish we’d taken two weeks instead of just one. Two weeks of this. Two weeks of beach, food, and relaxation. Instead, it’s back to reality. C’est la vie.
At least 6 more months until I can wear dresses like this one again.

As days get shorter and cooler, I am taking pleasure in small things like hot lattes, comfort food, and being able to wear leather jackets and jeans again. Skinny jeans are always a must for fall – perfect with flats and boots, sweaters and blouses, they are a breeze to style and are a staple in my wardrobe. If you’re looking for a pair, you must check out The Rockstar Jeans collection. “A perfect fit for every body”, these skinny jeans and cords come in a wide variety of colors, and are super comfy to boot. What’s not to love?
And though Old Navy skinnies will usually cost you $39.50 for cords, and $44.50 for jeans, starting September 20th to October 3rd, you will be able to stock up and get as many colors as you’d like for only $19 each! I have my eye on a pair of plum and honeycomb jeans, and a pair of jute green cords to add to my growing collection. Can’t wait to wear them this fall!
Have you ever tried on a pair of The Rockstar Jeans? Did you like the fit? Share in the comments!

The last few days sure haven’t been pretty…I’ve been feeling crappy, looking gruesome, going to bed early, loading up on Cold & Sinus meds, and drinking boatloads of tea + honey…which is why I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do. Sounds super fun, no?
This Sunday, however, despite all the tea drinking and crying into my pillow about not being taken care of well enough (I’m super dramatic when I’m sick), I somehow got cleaned up, put on my brightest pair of chucks, and went for a stroll to Kensington Market with le bf. We grabbed a coffee at the Moonbean cafe, stopped by the Blue Banana shop, where I picked up my obligatory British candy, watched a street performance…which turned into a flash mob, and just walked around without a care in the world, enjoying a sunny September day. And it was glorious! Or maybe it just felt that way because I’ve been stuck at home for so long. Either way, I loved it.
How was your weekend? Did you do something fun/special/crazy/awesome? If so, share in the comments, so I can live vicariously through you! Happy Monday, everyone!

This weekend, le bf and I went to the CNE, to play silly games, eat Tiny Tom’s donuts, check out the food trucks, and just enjoy the annual fun fest. And let me tell you…it was FUN-tabulous!
I tried to win Super Domo in the Bowler Roller game, but couldn’t get to the 5th upgrade, so we took home a pink flamingo instead. Le bf also won me a Minion from the Despicable Me movie – I’ve always wanted one! Nothing like two stuffed toys to make this blogger happy.
After the games, we made our way to the International Pavilion, where I found an amazing life-sized cut-out of Fabio, which in retrospect, I wish I’d bought…because who wouldn’t want Fabio in their living room every single day? The store also had Elvis, Harry Potter, Batman, and others…but sadly, no cut-outs of Ryan Gosling or Michael Fassbender. But I guess those two’ve got nothing on Fabio.
What about you? Are you taking advantage of the last sunny days of summer? Let me know in the comments.

Some days all it takes to make me happy is a burst of color on a blah day, and these banana yellow H&M trousers do the trick every time! Also, how cool is my new HBC Signature Collection watch by Timex?! I get compliments on it everywhere I go…and I don’t have to look for my phone every time I want to know what time it is…there’s a watch for that!
So tell me, do you wear colorful trousers to work? Or is your office too conservative for that? Share in the comments.

I don’t know about you, but I am starting to incorporate fall clothing into my wardrobe…slowly, but surely. Right now, I wear my pencil skirts without tights, and I get to skip blazers too. And though I get really excited about all the new fall arrivals in stores, am I the only one dreading the inevitability of wearing tights and other “unnecessary” layers? The way I see it: less layers = less hassle in the morning = happier Nelly. I know that it won’t last long…but I will enjoy it while it lasts, dammit!

I literally sat and stared at my screen for hours before I came up with that title…mostly because I was too busy watching the trainwreck that is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. So I apologize in advance if this post is extra dotty today.
As you can see, my crazy pants obsession continues, but with polka-dotted, floral, pajama, python, plaid, and all other kinds of pants taking over my closet, I know I can’t be the only one! So what I’m trying to say here is…sisterhood of crazy pants, anyone? Anyone?

Last time I blogged this dress, I paired it with comfy flats and silver accessories…this time, I wore it with heels and gold accents. The fact that I love it both ways just speaks to the versatility and wearability of this dress, which is probably why I wore it so many times this summer! Maybe it’s the color…or the pleats…whatever it is, it makes me happy when I wear it, and I think it shows.
Do you have a piece of clothing that makes you feel better the moment you put it on? What is it? Let me know in the comments!
