Last hurrah for winter fashion! let’s bring those hats out! I am very fond of berets. I think they make the perfect statement accessory. It ties up your whole look and gives off a Parisian vibe regardless of what you’re wearing.
It was a gloomy day and we were out exploring the back streets of Hamilton. Luckily, we stumbled upon this interesting alley I never thought exists. The walls were rustic and full of character. Coincidentally, I was wearing the right colors to match this hidden gem of a street. Who else enjoys exploring “secret spots” around the city? Please share and leave a comment.
I was due for another visit at Lan Hair Design with my hair stylist Koji. We decided to go more (caramel-y) brown with my hair. I told him I wanted my highlights to be more visible but still subtle enough for work. I admit, I am a serial hair color changer.
I was once asked, If I go on a holiday which country would I visit? I quickly responded, countries with big cities. Ultimately, NYC and the rest of the fashion week cities. I love the cosmopolitan vibe—fashion forward people, street noise and random conversations, colorful lights and an array of cuisines, etc. I find the cities more interesting and at the same time mysterious. Don’t get me wrong I have an appreciation for nature but like they say “once a city girl, always a city girl”.
As a stylist and with my deep passion for fashion, I pride myself in wearing the latest trends but have always avoided patterns. Maybe, because I am vertically challenged and wearing patterns wouldn’t really help in creating the illusion of height or I just really prefer a clean minimalist look. But I must admit this pattern really got my attention. First of all, I have worn gingham as part of my uniform during my entire university days. Secondly, it’s almost always in black and white (which is a huge factor for me). Lastly, it creates an effortless but sophisticated statement. Ditch your stripes and florals— gingham is making a huge come back this season.
