As I skip over a few continents and dip down under, it would appear that a slow, cold winter is descending upon the otherwise terracota island officially known as Australia. To me, however, it’s the new frontier of fashion. I love me some Aussie fashion bloggers (and designers). Their style is beyond effortless and they wear a lot of grey, which is alright with me, considering it’s my favourite fashion colour always and forever.Tweet
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 »Tweet
What can I say, four times a charm. This whole thing started with my damaged hair and a desire for ombre. Of course, we had to bleach the ends, one last time, and so my stylist, Kristina, owner of Loki Hair Studio, suggested we use a clay treatment over the next couple weeks to bring my hair back to life.Tweet
For those of you who follow my instagram, you know a thing or two about my obsession with squats. Beach ball bum is my goal and I ain’t stopping for nobody. What better way to inaugurate my new ass with a fun-filled day at the DivaGirl Conference?

All you have to do is Retweet on twitter “I want to win a free pass from @Eurotrashgirls to the @DivaGirlFitness conference Saturday April 6th”!

“I’m not even holding a camera, but incidentally, why is it when I do this *click click*, it means something different than when you look into my eyes?” I’m standing infront of Drew Haran, half-naked, in his studio in downtown Toronto. He’s waving his camera around emphatically as he speaks, trying to get me out my shell and be less nervous about that mechanical device in his hands. He adds, “photography is a conversation.”Tweet
Ladies and gentlemen, la pièce de résistance, ending my New York Fashion Week with a bang: Diesel Black Gold. Let me tell you about my insider experience at this show. All the people I’ve ever written about in my “Eurotrash People” series were in the flesh (Eleonora Carisi, Anna dello Russo, Giovanna Battaglia… and Chiara Ferragni aka The Blonde Salad). I was in Eurotrash heaven. Chiara, in her pink metallic Burberry trench sat across from me, and I don’t normally approach people because I’m really shy and usually think I’m disturbing their only moment of tranquility – that’s how I would feel if I were famous – but I knew I would regret not introducing myself to her.Tweet
Most of you know Canadian designer, Christopher Bates, as a Mercedes-Benz StartUp finalist from last season’s World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. His tongue-in-cheek, lipstick-on-your-collar, dress shirt is a calling card for his Bond-inspired menswear. He serves up fashion shaken, not stirred. But something you may not know about Mr. Bates – he’s eurotrash. We immediately hit it off.Tweet
I’ve been deliberating on this one for a while. But, a pic of her with her little motorino helmet and I was sold. Cara Delevingne, Miss, you are Eurotrash. Not to mention that her and her sister, Poppy, are London socialites-cum-models. Or the other way around? Who’s counting.
Cara is the official face of Burberry and has walked countless runways with her moves like Jagger. My hesitation was her rocker girl aesthetic, it was a bit too hard for the playful Eurotrash who prefers Pucci over Vivienne Westwood; who drinks espresso instead of high tea. And who most certainly doesn’t photograph looking like she forgot to shower and wash her hair. But there are times when Cara is sweet, like on the DSquared2 runway, looking as though she’s a modern day Monica Vitti. Here are some of my favourite shots of the tiny little Brit.Tweet
A blogger I’ve followed since the inception of Eurotrash, Caroline Blomst of Stockholm Street Style and Caroline’s Mode, she puts a Chanel bag to work. Her daily outfit posts sporting Acne something, a Balenciaga motorcycle jacket and Starbucks are always inspirational. Even though it’s hard to mustre the courage and go makeup free (as she usually does), there’s something to be said of her unaffected look. Did she just get out of bed?
Also the first girl to introduce me to Isabel Marant – and skinny jeans. If you’re looking for a grungier side of Eurotrash, Caroline is your girl.Tweet
