NYE On The Go

New Year’s Eve is usually a grueling time for me; the pressure to have fun is so overwhelming that we end up either spending a lot of money for overpriced dinners and surge Ubers or we stay at home and I can’t get in the spirit at all that I end up getting really bored. We did both, we spent it in Turkey, spent it here in Montreal, we did it all – I can’t remember the last time I had a decent NYE celebration. Which is why this year we decided that we’ll either splurge and go out with friends to somewhere we know we’ll have fun or stay at home like it’s any other day, just dinner and movies – no expectations (possibly wearing this sweater dress, or something super cozy like this sweater). We were very much set on the latter, until we had it enough with this depressing winter and decided to head to Toronto to spend a fancy night with friends. This change of plans meant coming up with a …

The Fashion Medley for Gucci Bloom

Blooming Into My True Self

I always make sure to surround myself with people, objects and feelings that inspire me which is probably why flowers have always been one of my biggest joys. They help me express myself in ways I can’t do with other means, create new stories every day and celebrate life – pretty much all the ideas that Gucci Bloom also revolves around. This gorgeously rich floral fragrance (with THE most beautiful bottle) has tones of blooming Rangoon creeper whose flowers turn from white to red when they bloom imparting a slightly powdery floral perfume (which is used for the first time in perfumery by the way), unique jasmine buds and authentic tuberose that brings sensuality and femininity to the overall scent. This perfume is like the holy grail of all floral fragrances, it makes a definite statement but still light and fresh at the same time – feminine in an unconventional way: much like Alessandro Michele’s groundbreaking Gucci itself. Eclectic, contemporary and romantic. Gucci Bloom celebrates the authenticity, vitality and diversity of the women who always …

Belt the Bag

I literally can’t get enough of this belt bag trend, and I have to say I’m not always this well put together when I wear one. I usually just hang it around my shoulder and forget about it –  but that’s the whole point. Whether it’s around your waist or on your shoulder, you can just forget about it. And whilst I love the style factor bags brings to outfits (+ the color factor for me) I simply can’t stand carrying something with me all day. This one just stays there quietly while emphasizing my waistline, what more can you ask of something so little? . Sunglasses Le Specs x Adam Selman .

Seasons Don’t Change

Not in my wardrobe they don’t. That’s why I never had winter-summer wardrobes, all of my clothes are always sitting side by side, waiting for their turn to make a surprise appearance in outfits. This Nanushka dress for example, which was a summer staple for me this year, is now the perfect fall skirt worn under sweaters. Recycle your wardrobe, folks. . Sunglasses Le Specs x Adam Selman .

Polka Revelation

I could have sworn that polka dots was the print I dislike the most up until a year ago. I love stripes, I enjoy a good floral every now and then, animal prints are totally welcome and so does anything abstract but I never, ever thought I’d be this into polka dots. I basically can’t stop buying anything dotted: blouses, dresses, scarves – bags even. I’m also enjoying the very few days you can sport a blazer, bare leg, combat boots combo so all’s well here. .
