If you remember a few weeks ago upon my return from New York Fashion Week, I posted about an elusive “pink lady” who I saw there but had no idea who she was. Since, I’ve not only found her blog, My Empirical Life, but I’ve added her to my list of Australian style blog inspirations (the ever-growing), and had a little exchange with her over instagram (i heart social media!). Now it’s time that Tanja Gacic was featured on my blog as an official Eurotrash girl, don’t you think?  Read the rest of this entry »

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. 

I’m wearing Nine West shoes; Zara tartan pencil skirt; ELA white star clutch; 7 for all Mankind motorcycle jacket; Karen Walker sunglasses.

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.

From top left to bottom right: Tibi Anson stretch blazer; Karen Walker super duper sunglasses; Cosabella sweetie soft bra; Tibi embossed quilted leather shorts; Rebecca Minkoff Blake mini handbag. 

 

Karen Walker SS14

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).

We made it to New York City, the big apple. The place where dreams are made of. I absolutely need a few days in this town to recharge my fashion inspiration. I’m like a kid in a candy store, drooling at this fashion feast. Before I dig in, I thought I’d post some pics of my own. I’m wearing up and coming Toronto-based fashion label, BAZZUL. Creative director, Felicia Burke, was so sweet to dress me for Fashion Week – big thanks! Love reppin’ my Toronto brands in NYC. The dress was perfect for an 8am flight, lunch at the Soho House, straight to the Karen Walker show and then vagabonding all day with JR Bernstein along the High Line and dinner with the Kenton Magazine crew. I paired it with my new Miista boots from Shoppalu.com where they are available for pre-order. I added a “Dazzling Blue” accent by the means of a Wilfred sweater tied around my waist. The colour, by the way, is heralded as the lovechild of Cobalt blue and Spring 2014. #thankmelater  Read the rest of this entry »
