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?

Ok, I lied! One last thing. I got the BCBGMaxazria dress that I saw on Selena Gomez. Excited? Very!

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.

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

5. Bib necklace. Honestly no clue…. ?

Juicy Couture $228.00

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.

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.
