Hello Everyone,

Today I’m visiting the subject of wearing glasses and how to style them. For all those who did not know, I wear glasses. Although I’m stubborn and do not wear my glasses on a daily basis, they do become a part of my outfit.  I have worn my glasses for about 4 years now and I continue to love them. But sometimes I think it would nice to have a few pairs to select from. My glasses are rectangular shape with a  tortoise patterned frame from Versace eyewear.

I find it  fun choosing  sunglasses as I can have many different styles at a variety of prices. Even then, I have maybe four pairs of sunglasses. Recently, I thought that I should open the door and start shopping online. I have never taken interest to it before, but it seems that you can find really cool items that are available exclusively online. A co-worker of mine wears glasses daily and he probably has a dozen different styles to choose from and I’m always so envious! They look really awesome tbh!

On my search, I came across Warby Parker, an online retailer who offers  high-quality eyewear at a fraction of the price. Here are some of my top picks.

 

 

Firstly, these women are stunning. I love the photography of these images and the frames are very fashion forward. I love the ADDIE in Magnolia because they are similar to the ones that I wear already but have a more modern  frame. As for sunglasses, I love the RAGLAN because of the cool rose gold lenses!

My co-worker and online shopping has inspired me to add different pairs of eyewear to my future lookbooks. So stay tuned for more posts that include eyewear and how to style them!

until next time,

Another thing

post

Hello everyone,

I have never been a country music fan. It just so happens that I spending most of my time listening to pop hits, slow r&b songs and alternative rock, so there has never been an interest for country music- until now. My opinion has been changing, as country music has been changing too.

Country music fans, to me, seem to categorically place the genre into this tiny box. The music is either  clearly COUNTRY  or because it may have developed more of a pop/rock tone to the song, some fans dismiss it. But now  big country music stars are creating a new mould of country music with a modern flare, I have been hooked.

And I have a somewhat the country girl complex. I would say that I am very down-to-earth, I love to be outdoors, and I own 5 pairs of boots. Those are characteristics of a country girl. This event was centred around country music so I took inspiration from what I would define as a classic country girl. You can`t go wrong with a white lace dress! This dress is by BCBG MaxAzria one of my favourite ready to wear designers who unfortunately are calling bankruptcy. But this dress fit the bill for the evening. paired with these platform heels from Winners and a vintage bag taken from my mother`s closet.

Memorable

17408156_10211980329052573_1693168121_o

Hello everyone,

Do you remember what you wanted to be as a kid?

When I was younger I had several ideas of what I wanted to become. The ideas started from wanting to become an author, to fashion designer, chef, to entrepreneur. My reality today is that I work as a social media strategist and radio tracker.

I read something the other day that made me think of my childhood aspirations.

“How do you want to be remembered ?”

This is a powerful statement, and  I use it to develop strategies in my work as well as my personal life. Defining how you want to be remembered is the first step to moving forward, obtain goals and happiness. It can be applied to many situations; How do you want to be remembered when you die? How do you want your peers to remember you? Your friends? Yourself ?

After some thought I came to this conclusion, I want to be remember for my honesty, my independence, my strength, my work and my loyal relationships with others. Step two would be to reflect on this. For all the things I want to be remembered for, they should reflect what I am currently doing. Are you doing things in your life that reflect how you want to be remembered?

This is definitely a process but reflection helps us get back on track!

Outfit:

Dress (that was too short, so I wore it as a top) from Urban Planet

Jeans from H&M

Boots from Clarks Shoes

Independent Woman

 

outfit twdy4

Hello everyone,

Is there such a thing as being too independent?

This is not anything new to me. Friends and acquaintances have told me numerous times that I am a very independent person. But now I’m questioning if being independent is a good or bad thing. Can you become too independent?

We can assume that being overly dependent or co-dependent  can be unhealthy. But I think that there is also flaws in becoming too independent.

And yes- I do pride myself in being an independent woman. I pay rent, buy groceries, go shopping and volunteer by myself. But being independent doesn’t just mean paying your own way. It is about taking care of yourself and because of that, when everything you do is for yourself the flaw is that it can be a lot of pressure. If you are always “taking care of business” you miss out on experiences with other people and you can become rigid.

For example, when you let others help you with something that you’re having trouble with, you are  demonstrating that you trust in them. Letting your guard down to let someone else help control a situation can make the other person feel good. Many people enjoy doing kind gestures for others. Maybe sparing your pride and being flexible for a moment can be beneficial. When you do everything on your own you build a routine and sometimes forget to step out of that routine to cultivate new experiences with others.

So what do you think? Is being too independent a thing? Should we try to learn a balance of the two?

Outfit:

Skirt from Winners

Crop top from Urban Planet

Jacket from Laura

Hello Everyone,

” Bold accessories are a woman’s armour ” – Rachel Zoe

Fashion influencers, photographers and models are flooding the streets of Toronto this week and it is what I love about this city. Personal creativity is something I highly value in my life. Whatever creative project comes to mind, whether it’s writing a song, cooking a new recipe or taking on photography. Setting aside time to let your ideas come to life is a very soothing stress-free practice.

For the month of March, Toronto Men’s Fashion Week (TOM*) begins. Another opportunity to meet eccentric personalities and to be involved in the world of fashion. The challenge for this week is all about being bold. To dress bolder, speak bolder and to wear bold accessories.

Oufit:

Jeans by H&M

Dress/Shirt from Urban  Planet

Duster jacket by BCBG

Boots from Clarks

Clutch  from Value Village/thrifted

 

Until next time,

xoxo Jess

Under the Moonlight

Hello everyone,

There is something beautiful about city skylines. I love the way the Toronto skyline looks at night. The way all the city lights reflect onto the water. It just illuminates a feeling that ‘you can do anything in this moment’. Don’t you think ?

Tonight was a special night as TOM* (Toronto Men’s Fashion week) begins its 2017 season of runway shows. Saturday night was TOM*’S Opening Party at Rebel Nightclub.

Social events can make anybody nervous. Going up to strangers can seem daunting to some of us. And deciding what outfit to wear can be even more troublesome.  But we sometimes need to remember that everyone feels this way sometime or another. And hey- parties are supposed to be fun. The event was full of really fun people and I am glad that I was had the opportunity to attend.  I wore this black bodycon dress from Dynamite and my black booties from Clarks.

Hope all of you are doing amazing!

Until next time,
