A Shoutout to Our Readers

Fashion is my passion, but I am school’s bitch.

I’ve been completely out of the loop with blogging, not to mention the entire fashion industry as a whole. Exams are over and I can finally breathe again. That being said, I’d like to take this chance to thank our returning visitors, despite the infrequent posting (not to mention our sluggish site loading!). Due to some healthy holiday spirit and an extremely inspirational business blog, I’ve taken a liking to writing for SA once again.

I’m working towards turning this website into a community. It’s time to be generous with the work I put out. As I have earned the opportunity to speak to a wide audience, I have gained a responsibility to not waste anyone’s time, including my own. This blog is a huge learning process for me, which is the main reason why it is rewarding. I would like you all to experience a learning process of your own. I’ll be doing research on what you want to know, what may inspire you and do my best to output only the best.

Best wishes and a great new year to all!

Rough and Tough with Buzz Jeans

Buzz Jeans - Easy Going Chick

Photographer: Yannick Khong
Stylists: Snob Affair Team – Daura and Susan
Make-up Artist: Bellie Nguyen
Model: Esthel Racine

 After a brutally long and difficult final examination session, I have finally mustered up the time to present you with a second look that we styled from a unique selection at Buzz Jeans.  Here`s what our model Esthel is wearing:

  • Sleeveless Graphic tank by Something Else with unique art by Julie Verhoeven which adds some complexity to an otherwise typical ensemble
  • Patent wedge sneakers by Jeffrey Campbell discreetly give some generous height
  • Cozy cut-off jean short shorts by One Teaspoon
  • The charm of a flat-beak cap ties the whole look together

I think that every fashionista needs to tone things down once in awhile with a laid-back look like this.  There`s nothing like an outfit that ranks highly in both the comfort and style department!

Esthel is wearing:

Last September, Susan and I had the opportunity of conducting an editorial fashion shoot in collaboration with Buzz Jeans.  we present you with one of three fabulous looks that we were able to pull together from the large selection of styles available at this fine local fashion boutique!

Buzz Jeans carefully curates their pieces and is known for offering unique labels that are not often found at other Montreal retailers.  Such labels include Something Else and Blessed are the Meek.  For those loyal designer shoppers, this Montreal boutique also offers many pieces by household names such as 7 for all Mankind, J Crew, Alexander Wang and Elizabeth and James.  If you would like to visit the store, there are two locations – Saint Viateur (corner Parc Avenue) and Monkland Avenue.

Special thanks to my boyfriend Alexi for tagging along and helping us out! I know you were dying the entire time and just wanted to eat, haha.

I look forward to displaying the rest of our stylings.  Thanks for the read!
