Friday #OOTD

The weekend is finally here!!  I couldn't be more excited :)  Since yesterday was also Black Friday I knew the office was going to be quiet with a lot of people off and in store during store visits, therefore I was able to take my 'Casual Friday' attire a little further.  I paired my favourite cashmere/wool blend sweater with floral embroidery with black leggings, my new black boots, a straight blow out, black lashes, and a nude lip.  What are everyone's plans for Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping?

Thursday #OOTD

We are finally over the hump and the weekend is in arms reach.  After a long Wednesday with work and my final exam for my con-ed class I headed straight home to bed!  After such an exhausting day there's nothing better than a killer sleep.  I woke up Thursday morning refreshed and ready to take on the day.   I paired this lilac silk skirt with a black silk blouse, black leather brogues, a silver and crystal statement necklace, my usual layered bracelets and boyfriend watch. There's nothing like wearing a Spring/Summer skirt in the Winter with some black opaque tights!

Wednesday #OOTD

After a night out with friends I usually wake up late and am extremely tired so a ponytail usually is the outcome as well as a simple outfit.  Simple doesn't have to be boring though… remember that!  I decided to wear this red-orange lace peplum top with dark wash skinny jeans.  Nothing dresses up an outfit like accessories so I completed my Hump Day look with a multi-metallic beaded necklace, layered silver bracelets, large silver pearl studs, silver boyfriend watch, my brand new leather boots, black lined eyes, a pink cheek, and glossed lip.  Happy Hump Day loves, only 2 more days until the weekend, what are everyones plans?

Tuesday #OOTD

You wake up and realise it's only Tuesday… THE WORST FEELING EVER!  I can already tell it is going to be an extremely long week.  I completed forgot how much I love this blouse and to be honest that I still had it :S so I jumped on the opportunity to wear it today.  Since being loose fitting and extremely patterned I kept my bottom half all black.  A black flirty high-waisted skirt, opaque tights, and suede pumps finished off my H2T look.  For hair, makeup, and accessories I stuck with the basics: curled do, black lined eyes, a pink lip, silver boyfriend and layered bracelets.  Fingers crossed the rest of the week moves quicker than the beginning...

Monday #OOTD

My weekend came and went, far too quickly if you ask me. However, there's no better way to wake up on a Monday morning and start your week off right than with a rockin' outfit.  I love this leather dress with zip front detailing and pockets, it is so versatile yet comfortable.  Keeping with the rock theme I accessorised with this grey skull scarf, chunky statement necklace, layered silver bracelets and boyfriend watch, black opaque tights, and black suede pumps.  I kept my hair and makeup fairly simple with lightly curled locks, black lined eyes, and a nude lip.  What's your favourite Fall leather piece?

Stephan Caras Spring 2014 #WMCFW

Stephan Caras is always one of my favourite shows at World MasterCard Fashion Week.  I just love all the glitz and glamour that walks down the Toronto runway!  Stephan Caras was quoted saying the following about his Spring/Summer 2014 Collection; "My design aesthetic and style is always inspired by my deep respect and appreciation for a woman's natural femininity.  While designing this collection, I let my imagination take me down a creative path that began with the feminine nature of the pearl. Feminine, wearable, practical and innately sensual; these are key components of every one of my deigns, distilled to their most simplistic form."  The collection featured Caras signature femininity, spectacular fits, fabrication, and colours.  However, the standout were the pearl accents used in the jewellery and even as detailing on the clothes.  Truly beautiful!
