Quick outfit post! Everything I love is in this outfit – a unique color combination to welcome the fall weather, a detailed pattern, feminine cuts, a beanie to chill things out and most of all, my super chunky Balenciaga Booties! Can you believe this latest shoot was done in a span of around 15 minutes? Casual street style FTW. I’m in the middle of exams right now but that doesn’t stop me from dressing my best! I did have an incentive, though – last Friday I met up with a few students in Fashion Marketing in LaSalle college to give them some information on fashion blogging and how I wound up doing what I’m currently doing. I’m looking forward to giving a presentation about the blogging industry to their class next Friday! I’ll be sure to include as much useful information as possible, as my experiences apply to anyone who is looking to start a personal website, be it to support a business or double as a resume. I’ll be summarizing my presentation on here.

One thing I do have to say about fashion blogging right now is that I’m epically bored of these posts. Sure, I try to keep things fresh in my outfits and present you with great photography, but until I start producing some extremely unique content, I’ll remain unsatisfied with my contribution to fashion. Oversaturation of the industry isn’t the issue here, because it allows for an interesting opportunity to break the mould. Anyway…I’ll save these thoughts for my presentation!

With the help of social media, Stromae announced to his fans that he would be performing a little “stunt” in Montreal today at 12:30 PM at Place des Arts. I rushed to the scene this afternoon and managed to get these pretty awesome shots* of the Belgian artist. His performance of his 2 hits “Formidable” and “Papaoutai” on his new album Racine Carrée was exceptional.

Being the fashion-obsessed person that I am, I could tell that this hard-working musician puts an equal amount of effort into his style and overall image. It’s not the first time Stromae is seen in this sick geometric polo, he was also wearing it here and here. Belgian stylist Coralie Barbier is the one responsible for Stromae’s impeccable style. I’m thinking that she gets her inspiration from the likes of high-end fashion labels such as Kenzo Paris and Josh Goot. These brands really understand the importance of proportions and color combinations in their patterns. It’s modern, it’s clean, it’s eccentric and it’s exactly how I love to dress (stay tuned for my next outfit post Winking smile )! Did you get to see Stromae perform today? If you missed it I shall be posting my video of his performance on YouTube shortly! Have a fashionable weekend.

H&M Showroom in NYC

What’s new at H&M? With H&M being so fast-paced, it can be hard to keep up with what’s new and cool in stores. I was invited to the H&M showroom during New York Fashion Week to view their latest collection and share all the beautiful details with you guys. The focus is indeed on the details in this collection – tassels, fringes and croc-embossments to name a few. I’m wondering if previous H&M collaborator Lana Del Rey had something to do with the inspiration for any of this. One of my favourite items of the collection are the air-superiority blue androgynous loafers (yes, I did my color research). The laid-back feel of these items was balanced out with a seductive semi-transparent black long dress which placed as a main attraction in the showroom. It’s interesting to see H&M’s direction towards a more cohesive collections. As many of these items tie well together, this makes it easy for anyone to come up with complete and head-turning ensembles.
