Where to save and where to splurge!

Don’t you love those stores, like forever 21, that have really cute jewellery for REALLY great prices?  But then they turn your skin green or they break immediately… WELL I’m going to tell you what items you should be saving your money on, and what pieces to splurge on!

EARRINGS

SPLURGE: You don’t really even have too splurge too badly on these, but it’s important to make sure your earring don’t hurt you, and there’s nothing more annoying than cheap earrings turning your ears green and making your ears itch!  Invest in sterling silver pairs and your ears will thank you!

Fasion Wednesday – Trends I Hate

“That is the ugliest effing skirt I’ve ever seen”

You know how every era has those trends that get ya down?  Like shoulder pads, or popped collars, or wearing your pants belted at the knees…STUPID.  In every generation/wave of styles and trends, there are always going to be really odd trends that people are going to look back on and think “WHAT was I wearing?!” and then their kids will say “OMG, your OUTFIT!”  When people look back on this generation and they have theme parties of the 2010’s they’re going to dress in leggings and uggs and just twerk around… how wonderful.  So here they are, the trends I hate right now:

FLORAL WREATHS

Especially fake flower ones.  If you have beautiful real flowers in your hair, then well done, but if they’re cheap fake shit trying to look like real flowers?  Stupid.

Fashion Wednesday – Nails, Nails, Nails

Nice and sparkly, just how I like ’em!

I will admit, I used to HATE doing my nails.  Not because I didn’t actually like painting them, but because it drove me CRAZY the second it started to chip, and then I would try to peel and chisel it all off because there was no point to having them done at all if they were all yucky and chipped.  THEN I started carrying a small bottle of nail polish in my purse everywhere I went.  I’ll tell ya, it’s definitely changed my perspective on doing my nails.  I probably do something different every week now, just because it’s so easy/convenient to change now!  Here are my thoughts on nail polish trends this season!

I love the “accent nail”.  I do it every time I paint my nails now.  It feels like they’re naked if I don’t do it now!  This is an awesome way to spice up your nails, and to incorporate a second colour in your outfit! Continue reading

Fashion Wednesday – Trendy Looks

“So, what’s the 411? What’s the hot gossip?”

Well, I’ve just recently signed on with a modelling agency based out of Toronto, which I’m extremely excited about!  They will get me auditions for anything from film/television, to music videos, to print ads and more!  I have a photoshoot with a fashion photographer tomorrow, and I need to put together 3 different looks: natural, trendy, and formal.  For natural, I basically will wear a t-shirt/tank top and jeans.  Easy.  For formal, I just have to dress up, and have awesome jewellery. A little trickier, considering I don’t have too many floor length gowns on hand, but still, pretty easy.  Now here’s the tricky part: trendy.  What does that even MEAN?  I mean, I understand I need to look fashion forward, but it’s somewhere in between natural and formal.  It’s a very grey area indeed…

Now, I don’t REALLY want to show up looking like this… (a “trend” from style.com) Continue reading

Fashion Wednesday – Fall Essentials of 2013

My Favourite Essentials for Fall!

Hey everyone!  Today I wanted to talk about my absolute favourite must-haves to feel good, and look great and how NOT to break the bank too badly when sprucing up your wardrobe this fall.

fall 1. The Riding Boot

I think that this one is fairly obvious…I mean, you can’t walk two blocks without seeing someone in their super stylish riding boots.  I had been looking for the perfect, aka most affordable, pair I could without sacrificing style or comfort!  I have large athletic calf muscles, so I’ve always had a rough go at trying to find boots!  I ended up getting an awesome pair at Urban Planet for $40, but I had to buy them 3 sizes too big!  I know that seems crazy, but they’re totally comfortable!  Look for your boots at similar stores, they may not be the very best quality, but if they last you for a season and they look good?  Who cares!
