pink tartan spring 13 toronto fashion week

Photography by George Pimentel

When 1960s mod meets Mad Men, throw a bit of Hitchcock in there for good measure, and you have the Pink Tartan Spring 14 collection. But, I’m not here to tell you what I saw – I’m here to tell you what I liked. And these flowers just did me in! The brand’s designer, Kim Newport-Mimran, is brilliant at appropriation. She is able to take past trends, cultural references and even current influences and make them look anew. Here we have an abstracted Prada-esque floral print on classic pieces such as the flared and pencil skirts. The neon florals set on black reminds me of this old game I used to play as a child called Lite-Brite, and I mean that association in the best of ways. Read the rest of this entry »


What better day to post these scholarly photographs than the first day back to school? Summer may be coming to an end but there’s a promise of better outfit days in the Autumn – a crisp blazer never harmed nobody. My outfit here is sophisticated prep school meets transgressive student – fashionably – out of uniform; a look I am all too familiar with. I was forever altering my high school uniform to add some chic to my everyday as a 17 year old. Do I ever wish I could’ve worn these soft jersey sweat shorts back then; rope detail adds a touch of the nautical nose-snub. I colour-blocked with a grey cotton tank from Club Monaco, white blazer from H&M, and Dodo la Parisienne ballet flats (that have been through the ringer this summer). Double band chain ring by Made Her Think available at What’s a bougie outfit without a Gucci bag? The token stripe means access to the cool kid’s lunch table in the cafeteria. Duh. Speaking of cool kids, big thanks to Alexander Liang for shooting and inspiring these photographs! Read the rest of this entry »

So I admit, in this photo I was super super hungover after an unexpected night out on the town. After 4 glasses of O.J., 3 advils and a cup of coffee, I made it to Mother’s Day brunch. Here’s what I wore: vintage blue silk top from Shoppalu; Zara floral pants; GEOX ballet flats; tweed blazer from Club Monaco circa 2003; and my Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip M.A.C. Ta-Da!

Here are some more photos from our lovely day spent in Yorkville. We had brunch at La Societe and it was delicious, as per usual. FYI every Thursday oysters are $1 at the bar starting at 5pm til close – it’s worth checking out!

Incidentally, today is my mom’s birthday. Wishing her a great one. Love you, mom! xo
