A big thanks to BlogTO for featuring my Day 2 outfit on their street style roundup yesterday. I drew inspiration from the acclaimed Celine Fall 13 collection; the luscious grey and navy wool coats, flared skirts and army green leather boots were made for me. My version plays on the dropped hemline silhouette with a chunky cropped knit sweater. When wearing this season’s longer skirt you want to avoid looking dwarfish by giving the appearance of elongated legs. The hem should graze the leg exactly where your calf indents to meet your knee – that’s the sweet spot. Don’t be afraid to pair a long, flared skirt with a chunky ankle boot. Perhaps counterintuitive, but it works.
I picked winter white as my base colour and played with black, blue and green accents. A horizontal stripe adds a touch of Viviana Volpicella to the look. I usually don’t wear earrings AND sunglasses together, especially if they are both statement pieces, but here the simplicity of my outfit actually sets the stage for chunkier accessories. My forest green, Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. is a playful splash, giving the impression that I grabbed it on my way out in a rush and it just-so-happened to work. An accidental fashion decision that was secretly premeditated.

I’m the featured blogger on The Luxe Life Blogger Roll this week talking all about my 90s inspired Toronto Fashion Week look. Check out the article I wrote and the outfit I styled here: The Luxe Life.
Dearest readers and friends, I’m happy to announce that Whatever Eurotrash is now part of The Luxe Panel with Canadian online retailer eLUXE. What does this mean? I’ll be working on some cool collaborations with eLUXE and their magazine counterpart, The Luxe Life – so stay tuned! In the meantime, let’s celebrate with an exclusive promo code I’m offering to my readers. Use the code EUROTRASH20 when you shop online at eLUXE.ca on all items – including sale items – until September 30, 2013. The above items are my picks from the eLUXE that I would wear right now, as the seasons transition you want to avoid wearing colours that might be too suggestive – a black and white palette, with a heavy emphasis on leather, looks appropriate if the sun comes out during the day, and yet, will keep you feeling fresh as the nights get cooler. And the bra? Well, a lace bra is a perennial must-have.
NEW YORK – A long way from her native New Zealand, designer Karen Walker has had unprecedented success in North America showing her latest Spring/Summer 14 collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City last week. Most of us Torontonians know Karen Walker’s eponymous label for her sunnies. Independent boutiques such as Visit ZANE at 753 Queen St. West and Canadian online retailer eLUXE are two great places to shop for her signature, oversized and over-the-top, plastic faceshields (i.e., sunglasses).

Riding around Buffalo this weekend wearing LOFT necklace, Swank boutique Purring Feline top, Free People jeans available at eLUXE.ca and my chucks… obviously. There’s some really great pockets of the city that make the perfect backdrop for some street stylin’ road trip pics. Retro signs, deserted lots and parks. With the sunroof open, shades on and Little Boots playing on the radio, we probably had the most enchanting time in Buffalo.
I must preface this post with an admission. I’m not much of an online shopper, in that, I’m always a bit nervous about purchasing something I haven’t seen or touched before. Which, I believe, is completely normal. However, you won’t find an e-commerce enthusiast who’s as passionate about the changing landscape of consumerism as I am. Needless to say, I had a 15 minute jumping-on-the-bed-athon when eLUXE invited me to peruse their headquarters here in Toronto and get the full personal shopping experience with their lead personal stylist, Jennifer McConville. I brought along my friend, photographer, JR Bernstein, to capture it all with his trusty Fujifilm camera. Read the rest of this entry »
