I have to admit, I did not watch the Super Bowl, because I really don’t care about football, but I’m pretty sure everyone and their grandma watched the halftime show, if only to see Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child reunite for the first time in AGES! And of course, to dance their asses off to Bootylicious. Queen Bey herself wore a cropped motorcycle jacket and a bodysuit made with strips of python and iguana, and insets of lace designed by the New York-based designer Rubin Singer. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams also wore Proenza Schouler booties that I just happen to have…no biggie! The sets were over the top, the hair was tossed, and Destiny’s Child reunited. It was a perfect ending to a lazy Sunday.

DESTINY’S CHILD REUNION AFTER THE JUMP!!!

What an EPIC day last Thursday was! It all started with a visit to Toronto Life’s Most Stylish party held at the new Shangri-La Hotel downtown. Toasting Toronto’s most sartorially gifted, this event was one of the best I’ve attended in a long while. Greeted with life size cardboard cut-outs of the 25 Most Stylish, my friend Lisa and I made our way around the room, checking out the immaculately dressed crowd, and snacking on pretzel bread grilled cheese sandwiches, fresh oysters, and caviar. Fancy!
I also got to finally meet Andrew Coimbra, the winner of Toronto Life’s Most Stylish Reader contest (which I was also a part of). And I have to say, he was the WORST! Just kidding, he was pretty awesome, and we are now the best of friends. True(ish) story.
After mingling at Toronto Life’s fancy party, Anita and I headed out into the night…more specifically into Fashion’s Night Out! Our first stop was eLUXE’s pop-up shop, full of candy, Smythe jackets, and Rebekah Price baubles, where we did a little mugging for the cameras at the photobooth. It was FUN!
More after the jump!

This past weekend I had to go in to the office and work, which naturally translated into comfy outfits with little to no thought involved. Sorry if this is kinda boring, but to me, a striped tee paired with denim is always a “do”…and an easy one at that. Which is why all of my striped tees are now looking a little mangy and tired for my liking. Time for a new batch, I say.
Apart from my stripe-obsession, there are a few other pieces that I always seem to be wearing, which is also why I will be doing a new segment on Style Blog – called Stylish Staples, starting next week. This segment will showcase some of my most beloved wardrobe essentials, and how I (and my fave bloggers) wear those pieces. For now, I’d like to ask you, my lovelies, what are your fave Stylish Staples? Share in the comments.
I Wore: Peacoat - Zara; Top – H&M; Jeans – 7FAM c/o SeCe Apparel; Boots – Proenza Schouler (The Room); Bag – Prada

Isn’t it just the best when two awesome things combine to create something even better? Like peanut butter and chocolate, or ice-cream and apple pie? Well, the
boys men of Proenza Schouler have just released a Valentine’s Day-inspired capsule collection…and it’s glorious! Better than any Reese’s cup you’ve ever tasted.
Gorgeous bags, clutches, and wallets in red leather and chain straps – make my heart explode with WANT. Prices range from $785 for a PS1 wallet on a chain, to a whopping $6,825 for a lizard leather PS11. Pretty pricey, that’s for sure, but still super beautiful.

Finally got to take a photo of my new obsession – no, not the Joe Fresh snakeskin shirt (even though I do looove it). My new obsession is this simple, classic, and (me thinks) flattering tweed skirt from JACOB. It fits like a dream, looks great at the office, but doesn’t make me feel like I should be picking up my kids from soccer practice. You know what I mean? It’s still youthful, and work-appropriate…and I oh-so-love it!
Speaking of JACOB! In case you didn’t know, the store is having a Christmas Stocking Promotion! There are $290,000 in instant prizes (stuff like a wardrobe full of JACOB clothes, valued at $10,000!) to be won at check-out at any store – all you have to do is print out a Christmas stocking from their site.
And if that wasn’t enough of an incentive, for each stocking brought in store, JACOB will donate $1 to Goodwill and Renaissance, non-profit organizations whose mission is to facilitate the social and occupational reintegration of women experiencing difficulties. For an additional chance to win a $10,000 wardrobe, all you have to do is share it with some friends. Sharing is caring, right? You can enter here: http://surprisesjacob.ca. And if you end up winning, don’t forget to share the love!
I Wore: Shirt – Joe Fresh; Skirt – Jacob; Necklace – Forever21; Leggings – Target; Boots – Proenza Schouler (The Room); Bag – Prada
