Just two weeks ago I posted images from my desert-inspired styling of the Michael Eardley Khloe dress. You can buy it online using my exclusive promo code EURO30 to get 30% off the entire store or at Homegrown Boutique in Toronto (16 Cumberland Street). This time around I styled a pair of silky smooth shorts from Michael Eardley’s Spring 2013 collection. Paired them with a DKNY cropped knit sweater and sequins Bottega Veneta heels to juxtapose comfort and razzle dazzle. My sunnies are vintage, Claudia Carlotti that sparkle with a degrade lens.

Canadian designer, Michael Eardley is the go-to man for pieces with an eclectic, almost nighttime feel. Getting to play with his S/S 2013 collection, Rebirth One, tempted me to style the Khloe dress ($95 CAD, available online) in an edgy day-to-night look. I paired the black summer dress with an organic cotton wrap sweater, honey Ray-Bans, leather boots from Sauvage on Queen W and accessories by LAB by Laura Busony (her Teardrop rings and Rapunzel bracelet). We shot the photos at sunset atop my roof, which has the most amazing views of the city and coincidentally, the sun setting in the west. I wanted to pretend we were in the west coast, USA. Maybe the desert, even. Sand blasting through my sunkissed hair, leather boots to keep my pedicure intact, a squint planted firmly on my face.
Working straight from nine-to-five like one of those normal people didn’t stop me from keeping a promise. A promise to fuck off with friends on May 2-4. Like that beat up pair of Havaianas, I’m glad I kept it. We drank in parks, and then drank in more parks. Went for poutine both sober and drunk. Never even saw the old port or riot-ridden downtown. It was like May 1968 as we drove into the city on the eve of laws being passed to make it OK for riot police to beat the shit out of students. Red squares everywhere. Karaoke nights and so many goddamn inside jokes about peg legs, tv shows, and the Rhythm of the Night. Amazing.
I wore a pair of cut-off jeans I made and a silk dress I bought at Shoppalu.com – perfection.
