Pick of the Week: Friendship bracelets

Every so often I come across tiny and not so tiny fashion fixations. I obsess over a particular piece in such a way that no matter what, I just can't shake it out of my head. Strangely, I have come to see these obsessions as a good sign. As a "You will not regret it" type of sign. These Astley Clarke friendship bracelets are definitely one of my fashion fixations. It has been over a year and a half since I first spotted them, and I'm still yearning over them! I love their delicate and effortless look. I love the tiny, intricate pendants that dangle right at the clasp. I love how they all represent a profound and positive notion: hope,...

Oldschool Inspiration


Throwbacks are fun. I enjoy flipping through pictures and reliving moments; old pictures that take me to happy places. I always gather something good out of them. A good feeling, a good resolution, a good laugh. Last time I flipped through my High School photos, I was unexpectedly inspired. Even though I was never a fashionable teenager, looking back at my friends and myself, I got the urge of wearing a kilt again. As ugly and unstylish as it seemed to me back then, I couldn’t help myself from coveting it now, and even more so as tartan is such a current trend. Precisely because of that, I thought that finding a cute mini kilt would be a piece of cake. But I was wrong. All my efforts were futile. Until one day, a friend of mine offered to pass on to me her old High School kilt. She said she had never worn it since after graduation and she definitely never would again. I was thrilled! One girl’s trash is another girl’s treasure! So I styled the old school kilt according to my own personal coordinates. I had put so much work into chasing after one, that wearing it felt just as exciting as a first day of school!

Pick of the Week

I have been lusting over boyfriends lately. Boyfriend jeans that is. BF distressed jeans to be precise. The slouchiness and the shreds create an "I don't care" look that is easy, comfortable, and stylish.  As shabby as they may seem, they are more versatile than what some may think. Want to dress them up? Throw a cute little jacket or blazer on, or simply put on your pointy stilettos. Want to dress them down? Pair them with comfy ballet flats and a tank top or a t-shirt. Here are three styles that I like. Which one is your favourite?  Últimamente he estado deseando un buen par de boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend jeans rasgados, para ser exactos. Y es que, el aire desgarbado de...

Autumn Rush


They say that in Ontario, fall is the most beautiful season of the year. One of the things Canada should be proud of is its awestrucking landscapes. And when autumn hits, the breathtaking rushes rise. Like adrenaline, all the warm hues of reds, oranges, and yellows spread quickly to every little leaf in sight. And then they fall, and the temperatures with them. Leaving only a feeling of bareness that we all try to fight off with layers of bulky warm clothes.

Pick of the Week: Oxford shoes

Last Summer, I threw out my beloved pair of tan leather oxfords. It was a tough, emotional decision, but it had to be done. The shoes were so trashed, they were more like shoe corpses. They had lived and proudly served their mission for over two years. They had gone everywhere, and had bravely defied every condition imaginable: dry sand, deep puddles, slushy snow, alcohol spills...

A Mid-day Impulse

"Great! I can go back to using my old rings again, the ones that don't fit me anymore," was my friend Maggie's reaction to my new pairs of rings. I couldn't help but laugh. This was the first time I bought mid-finger rings, it was actually more of a thoughtless impulse than a real necessity.  I love them though, they're just so Rock&Rollish cool! Now, If you are going to be a mid-finger ring thoughtless-impulse-buyer like me, I suggest that you keep it simple. "¡Bien!¡Al fin puedo volver a usar los anillos que se me habían quedado pequeños!", fue la reacción de mi amiga Maggie al ver mis nuevos anillos. La verdad es que esta es la primera vez que me compro...
