Winter Sun

Winter Sun

celine spring 2015 sunglasses aIf you live in a country where in a diagram, all the arrows eventually point to the answer “winter is coming”, this next thing I’ll say is going to make so much sense to you: sunglasses are actually a winter accessory. When endless snow meets the frostbite herald sunlight, you either put on sunglasses or go blind. My husband found it a little hard to accept this fact but eventually he gave in. But how could you not, especially when there’s so many beautiful eyewear to shop for in the middle of the season?

The two must have designs? This Céline pair with the metal bridge (or get it for a fraction of a price *wink wink* here) or the RayBan rounds.

A New Superstar

A New Superstar

adidas superstar22

Move over Stan Smith, there’s a new star on the block. Adidas’s incredible style revival campaign continues with Superstar; iconic shell toe with three side stripes. Adidas at its best. If you don’t own one already (from your childhood or bought it in the last couple of months) you can get it here, before it’s soldout worldwide. A hint: if you want to stay ahead of the game, I strongly think that Gazelle is going to be the next best thing.

Québécois Holidays

Québécois Holidays

The Fashion MedleyComing close to my first ever Christmas in Canada, I’m more excited than ever. Every year I go back to Turkey for New Year and I’ve always regretted missing the holiday season. Let’s be honest, it’s always better to stay in this magical land of Noël that is Quebec during December and run away as far as possible in January. To top it off, I just found out about Desjardins’ member exclusive retailer discounts which would not only help you get the perfect Christmas gift but would also benefit you all year long. (Hint: %12 off of all online purchases from Maison Birks!)

Thanksgiving Attire

As a non-american shopaholic who lives to eat, thanksgiving means guilt free binge eating & sales shopping in good conscience to me. With all the black friday & cyber monday sales coming up, I of course made my studies and piled up tens of items in my shopping cart(s) ready to be attacked when time comes. And the time has come guys. Shopbop‘s biggest sale of the year starts as of this moment and will last for an entire week, though I don’t think much will be left by December 1st. There are NO brand exclusions and the more you purchase the better the savings. (I’m the girl your parents would tell you to stay away.)

Here are my 5 recent favorite fall looks to copy that would ease your thanksgiving belly while amping up your style game.

The Winter Vest

The Winter Vest

The Winter VestIt doesn’t have to be a winter vest per se, any kind of sleeveless & open front jacket or coat you throw on over your sweaters and/or under your coats count as winter vests and they are awesome. Years ago, when I was trying to figure out the tricks of the layering trade, I discovered that a vest was the missing part of that unsolvable equation. Come summer or winter, a vest is the thing you need to unbland the look without compromising comfort. And just like pretty much everything else, it’s better when it comes in wool.
