If you are not in fashion you are nobody,

I will finally be going shopping this weekend to get my fall fashion fix. Items on my list?  pencil jeans, ankle boots (I know everyone is excited about over-the-knee, but they just aren’t for me), a couple essentials, christmas gifts, and of course, makeup refills. Now some things I don’t necessarily need, but they make me want to empty the bank account. Scrumptiously soft leather gloves, a checkbook style wallet in red, purple, teal, or gray, a fitted black blazer, a bustier tank top, a romantic organza skirt, cocktail rings and necklaces in ridiculously oversized proportions, and ludicrously large knits. Wish me luck! P.S, I’m not actually considering buying the Christian Louboutins…. yet! I have a coin jar and I’m saving up baby!

Lastly, I got my american apparel bag of scraps, and hopefully I’ll have some crafts to show off very soon. I was thinking a downtown quilt?

How To Walk in High Heels

This post is mostly bits & pieces I’ve collected in my brain for the past 2 months. School & life have been weighing me down, but I’m back! & ready to blog like crazy. 

I ordered some books from amazon a couple weeks ago, & I am super pumped to read them. Here are a few:

The Sartorialist

wowwww

The Sartorialist is a blog run by Scott Shuman. It is based upon photographs that Scott takes around the world, centering on the major fashion capitals. His shots of “inspirational” people, in beautiful clothing have wowed the fashion community. The book is a collection of his personal favourites, and is available in most bookstores. http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/1069Leo3733Web

A photograph from a recent blog post. 

Another must have is WhoWhatWear. Again, another book based on a fashion blog. In this case, the blog WhoWhatWear run by Katerine Power, and Hillary Kerr. The book contains beauty and styling tips, loosely influenced by the blog. http://www.whowhatwear.com/website/aboutus.php

Last up, is the one I cannot wait to dig into: Influence by Mary-Kate Olsen. I LOVELOVELOVE, the twins style! It seems to be perfectly represented in this artsy, eclectic, mish-mash of inspirations brought together into a book. 

Olsen-InfluenceCover

I’ll read and review all the books and let you know if they are any good ASAP!

 

I found a really cool photographer named Marilyn Minter. She recently collaberated with MAC and took this stunning picture. For more info, Google her name.

Here are some of her other amazing shots

What’s your favourite store? Mine is Holt Renfrew, I’m an all Canadian girl(: They have such a retro-vibe. It feels like you’re shopping in the glamour of the 50’s. They still shoot and send out fantastic look-books or catalogues, and have a cafe, personal shoppers, and exclusive brands. Although they have a knack for all vintage traditions, they are proving their aptitude for technology. They recently launched a video featuring top models Coca Rocha (ahem, Canadian?), and Behati Prinsloo. It is so authentically Holts! Shot in Toronto’s own Gladstone Hotel, the video brings old school swagger to the evolving world of fashion and beauty. This video inspired me so much, that I tried to take still images of the whole thing. Too bad they are tres blurry. I LOVE it. I am just itching to get into Holts this season. Oh, and P.S, that fab music it is set to? The reeling by Passion Pit. http://www.holtrenfrew.com/holts/pages/video/womens-fall-2009-vignette.dot?language_id=1

While on the topic of Holts, I’d like to share my Fall/Winter wish list (all the items can be purchased there).

1. J-brand cigarette jeans. $159.00

jsex

2. Ankle boots. Coach or BCBG perhaps?

3. Leather Gloves. Coach for sure. $98.00

glovvvv

4. Cashmere sweater. Not completely sure? Thinking Autumn Cashmere or Hayden… $250.00

casssssssssssssssssssssss

5. Bib necklace. Honestly no clue…. ? 

drammmmmm

Juicy Couture $228.00

fererere

Free People $198.00

6. Geek Glasses; I was told I needed glasses, so I thought, why not make a statement? Ray-ban is essential.

RB5184

7. STILL want a boyfriend blazer. Or a blazer of any kind really. Refer to older posts:)

 

Lastly for today, I got 3 fish and an aquatic frog. I’m trying to think of creative fashion-forward names for them. Help? Much appreciated.

Back to School Buys

Summer is already half done, and although I want to saver every last second of heat (more like rain), I am also kind of obsessed with fall accesories and fashion(: So here are my top picks for fall fashion

Bags

Large and roomy is the way to go! I’ve never quite understood why people buy those stupid small bags that hold a phone and a quarter. Unless it’s a black tie affair or you legitimantly only have to carry a couple coins, you’re going to look like a moronic, tween-ish, wannabee. Maybe the draw is because they’re cheaper? Anyways, bright shades, a spacious interior, and a classic line are whats right now in bags. I’m personally favouring a large tote for my books this year. As par usual, look to Longchamp, marc jacobs, Chloe, and as much as these designers make me gritt my teeth: Juicy Couture and Betsey Johnson.

Juicy Couture “yearbook” tote. It comes with permanent markers so people can sign it! $66.00

Shoes

I want moccasins! They look so comfy, and warm; yet they are not nearly as ghastly as uggs!

Juicy Couture – $225.00

Boots
I want ankle boots! Preferably black, and leather. They go well with everything!

I recently acquired a good deal of agate and other cool rocks and shells to make necklaces with. Look at this cool  agate jewelery! I can’t wait to get started. I want my pieces to look as if they’ve been hand crafted in nature, not some stuffy art store. For that reason I want the chain and bindings to be all leather. They should have an earthy feel. Great for pairing with jeans and a tee.
