Fashion Thoughts

What to blog about today? I haven’t done an outfit shoot and I’m too swamped with work to do research for a decent article. How about some random fashion thoughts?

1. I will always love skinnies. I hate excess material at my ankles. I cringe at the thought of salt-stained hems in the winter time.

2. I wish people in fashion were less sheep-like. Kate Moss! Karlie Kloss! Here comes Queen Delavigne! Give it a rest and maybe that way we can all equally take part in what it is we love, and that’s celebrating beautiful clothes, not beautiful famous people.

3. Pastels in the fall? It can be pulled off if you’ve got the right bag and shoes, but for a non-tacky pastel-coloured bag I would imagine you’d have to go designer.

4. In order to control ourselves while shopping in NYC, my friends and I made up a golden rule: If it ain’t “stop and stare,” don’t buy it. When you’re a fashionista, semi-statement items just have no place in the wardrobe.

5. The new McQueen collection is just wow.

6. This one is with a friend in mind. STFU to anyone who says “real women are ______.”

7. When you’re about to dish out 100 bucks on Philip Lim for target just because there was so much hype around it, it’s time to think about opportunity cost. Take that money and contribute it to something like this, this or maybe even this.

Life in Jacob

outfit post, OOTD, Jacob Canada, lace detail camisole, blue and burgundy, symmetrical outfit, montreal fashion blogger

Here’s a quick outfit shot from this summer on my way to the grocery store. Here I’m wearing a lace-detail camisole by Jacob in dark blue (similar here). I’m liking how the horizontal lines of the shirt are in theme with the cut-outs on my leather booties! This outfit is about clean lines and symmetry, though things are kept interesting thanks to the burgundy-blue color combination and lace detail in my shirt. My favorite oufits are the ones that are hassle-free yet stylish. Smile

I’m actually not much of a runner. I’m more of a biker, tennis player and recently a volleyball player. That being said, these Nike Free TR Fit 3 Breathe Training Shoes are awesome no matter how you stay active and it’s no surprise that this model is a best seller. Only after having purchased them did I start to notice people on the streets sporting the Free Run series in a variety of beautiful pop colors. These flexible and lightweight sneakers are perfect for the courts but are so cool and stylish when worn with the right pieces.

This photo shoot was done in Old Montreal. Thanks to my boyfriend Alexi for composing these shots so nicely. I hope you enjoyed this casual look!
