I think guys don’t get enough credit for dressing well! Considering that so many of them here, in North America, look like they pick up whatever is lying on their bedroom floor in the morning and then pile it on randomly, those with style should definitely be rewarded for their smart choices! Like guys in Europe. Guys in Europe are perfection! They dress…effortlessly, yet grown up (post on Euro style is coming soon, I promise!). And to me, Joseph here is the very embodiment of European style in his navy blue suit, pocket square and all. Perfect fit, great accessories, and a mega-watt smile…all that’s missing is a Vespa. Guys, take notice!
Love stripes! Always have, always will. Want Rain’s Comme des Garçons cardi. Cuteness!
First of all, I want to apologize to the girls for not remembering which name belongs to which girl. As usual, carrying a million things in my hands, I never have enough time or limbs to write everything down.
With that out of the way, the first thing that caught my eye about these triplet (they also have a brother) sisters is Taylor’s (?) tucked in menswear inspired oversize striped shirt. I just love how effortlessly cool it looks with a pair of light denim shorts. It’s one of my all time favorite looks! Clean and simple. Her bag was pretty amazing also…can’t really see it here though. My bad. What you can see though, is her cool ring that she got in Egypt (lucky girl). Again, I am a sucker for all things turquoise…and for me, this just adds the element of unexpected to her otherwise all-American look.
Victoria’s outfit is equally chic, combining a white cotton peasant blouse with slim-ish cuffed black pants, and of course those awesome ruffled sandals from Zara! Love, love, love! And her grey bag is not too matchy-matchy, yet still is in keeping with the overall tone of the outfit. Absolutely adore the chain necklace with tassels (they are going to be everywhere this Fall)! I think it toughens up her airy top.
I wonder what these two fashionistas have got in their Zara bags?
Today’s paper said that this year’s Taste of the Danforth had the highest attendance in the history of the festival. I find it a little strange, since the weather was so ugly the whole weekend.
I went, of course, but got soaked, and even my food got rained on (soggy lamb is not a way to go)! So when I spotted Anisha walking down the street, I had to stop her for a picture! Her outfit was so fun and colorful – a perfect antidote to bad weather! Love the pop of red, love the way she wore her tunic a little off the shoulder, and also love her curls! Cute, casual, chic!
Rompers and jumpsuits had their comeback this summer. For a bit, I’ve dallied with an idea of getting one, but at then end of the day chickened out came to my senses and decided against it. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those lucky few that can pull one off. Amanda here is much braver than I am! Her outfit reminded me of a girl I saw in Paris this summer, that wore something similar, but in my opinion was not able to pull it off (pics to come). I think Amanda’s height, and the fact that she is a skinny-minny, lets her get away with wearing this jumpsuit without looking, well, ridiculous. I’d add a funky belt to this outfit, to define the waist, but other than that, I think her oufit is tres cute! Love the turquoise heels! Great way to add an unexpected pop of color!

Boyfriend Blazer + Acid Wash Black Denim + Layered Tanks + Statement Jewelry + Rocking Bag = Playful, yet still Professional-ish
Way to go, Jo!
More Jo after the JUMP!
It’s summertime (even if it doesn’t feel like it), and summertime means summer weddings! And what does it mean to be invited to a wedding? That’s right! Outfit searching!
The wedding that I attended this past Saturday was beautiful! Gorgeous bride, handsome groom, lotsa food, dancing, performances, tearful speeches, and many well dressed people! Like I mean, adorable dresses! It was nice to see that a wedding outfit does not have to equal predictable or stuffy, or regal (unless you’re into it), especially for young girls like me (no eye rolling, please!). So today, I’d like to introduce you to these 4 stylish girls in awesome, cute, youthful, modern and not at all stuffy dresses that they wore to Mr. and Mrs. Pante’s reception.
First up is Janice. The moment I saw her ruffled off the shoulder, cut-out dress in the amazing silver grey color, I loved it! It’s not your typical wedding-wear, but that’s what’s so great about it! Modern cut, lotsa leg, gorgeous girl!
Tamara and I sat at the same table, and I couldn’t stop staring at her amazing jewelry! Turquoise is my weakness! Love her graphic gown. I think the pattern saves the dress from looking overly formal, and in my humble opinion, black + white + turquoise = amazingness!
The beautiful ring on Tamara’s hand is from Spain! Me encanta!
My next “victim” is Reena. What really caught my eye in her outfit is the simplicity of both color and cut. To me that’s the beauty of it. I love the sheen of her dress, and the way she paired it with gladiator sandals. Again, very youthful. Very fab!
And last, but not least is Leah. My favorite part about her dress are the sequins. So much fun! And since the picture isn’t that good, you should know that the sequins go along the neckline, the sides of the dress, and at the hem. To me, they make the otherwise boring-ish dress look modern and…yeah, fun! After seeing her dress, I kinda regretted not wearing my sequined bolero over my lacey dress. Oh well…next time! Great dress, Leah!
My usual week, Monday-Friday, is spent in a daily grind, going to the office, grabbing lunches with friends. It doesn’t allow for much outrageous style spotting, but what I do see every day are stylish men and women on their way to their jobs. Today, it’s Victoria and Jen.
Love Victoria’s incorporation of different shades of green into her outfit. Especially her awesome Zara peep-toe pumps! Just goes to show that red hair and green clothes go together like Jimmy and Choo!
I spotted Jen waiting in line to get lunch, and her dress immediately caught my eye! Its oh-so-simple cut is spiced up by amazing orange-red color! I might be a little biased in this case, because bright-colored shift dresses are a staple in my office wardrobe. Love!
Jo and I both fell in love with Miriam’s jacket at first sight. Loved its architectural simplicity and off-white color, as well as the way Miriam paired it with a simple white tank underneath, coupled with a pair of skinny True Religion jeans, and of course a pair of Yves Klein blue peep toe flats with fun yellowish-green nail polish on her toes and fingers. Simple and perfect!
It takes a true fashionista to wear a studded Balmain-inspired vintage blazer to a CMA exam! While most candidates probably wore wrinkly pajamas they studied/slept in the night before, Joanna opted for a more stylish option. Love this blazer! Love the fact that it’s vintage even more! What a fabulous way to spice up an otherwise boring exam room! And CMA marks aside, she definitely gets an “A” on this blog!
