INTRO

Intro

My outfits come from a huge variety of stores. From the very high-end stores to things being sold on the streets. I get some of my clothes from places where people wouldn’t generally shop for clothing. Oh, and I can’t forget about the online shopping! … I absolutely  love online shopping. The Intro outfit is an outfit that can be worn to a ladies’ night, out on a date, or even to the movies.

IN THE JUNGLE. Summer 2018 Series

Hello everyone,

Well for many people summer is the season for long hikes in trails. Although I do enjoy going for walks; this day I was inspired to photoshoot insisted. Something about the “jungle” excites me, and my animalistic creative side comes out. I hope you enjoy this unconventional post here on the blog since I haven’t done anything like this before.

Can you believe that I am wearing a men’s buttoned up shirt?
Yes, men’s wear has become my new obsession over this summer. In particular from H&M since their XS – Small in men’s is a perfect fit on my body. When I want to create an oversized street style then I go for a  medium or large in men’s. I have a future post coming up on the blog where I style a men’s shirt into a relaxed but elegant look. I am wearing a light coat since the beginning of the summer we had some cool nights and I always like to leave the house prepared.

There is no summer for me without going to Lavelle. In my opinion this restaurant has the most beautiful view of the city of Toronto.

MOM JEANS OBSESSION

Is this the end of the skinny jeans? In the past few years mom jeans have been making their way back into the fashion scene.
This style of jeans was very popular in the 80s and 90s worn typically by middle-aged women but now everyone is rocking it. A lot of these jeans are coming back with frayed or distressed bottoms which I think makes them look cool and more youthful.
I am seeing people wearing the mom jeans or the straight leg jeans more frequently than the super tight skinny jeans. That is why I ask myself if perhaps this is the end of the skinny jeans since they have been the most popular thus far.
I still love skinny jeans and I don’t think they are out of style. I think I will always wear them. Although I said the same thing about flare or bell bottom jeans which I don’t wear anymore.
I am still getting used to mom jeans since I am a denim fan and I like trying different styles.

The Merilyn Denis Show

Hey fashionable people,

So I have to confess that I have been obsessed with being an audience member at talk shows. As you all already know I am all about new experiences. I am trying new things, in particular things that I can do locally. Sometimes I find myself more willing to explore while on vacation but I have decided to appreciate the things in my own backyard.

https://www.marilyn.ca/Homepage
The Marilyn Denis Show is a Canadian TV talk show with Canadian and international celebrities. Tapping of the Marilyn Denis Show happens in downtown Toronto. The show airs weekdays at 10:00AM on CTV.
I had an amazing time at the show. Bellow I will provide the link of how you can obtain free tickets to the show. Yes I said free! Fun and friendly staff, the show is very informative with a variety of topics that can be beneficial for our lives.
https://www.marilyn.ca/Tickets
Marilyn Denis just celebrated her 1500 episode. It is amazing to see this show progressing and becoming even better season after season.
My goal is to be a guest at the show to discuss about fashion or perhaps compete on the Battle of the Blogger segment.

Now should we talk about my outfit?
Bright colours look good on TV. When attending a TV show usually the audience manager gives you  instructions regarding the dress code. Wearing colours is not mandatory but simply a suggestion so you can look very good on TV.
I love white so I started building my outfit around this dress shirt from H&M. The sweater is from Guess. I wanted a simple but fashion forward and modest look. I finished off my look with leather pants also from H&M and topped off with my favorite pumps at the moment from Lintervalle a Canadian shoe company.

This was my first time in Ottawa. Although I have been in Canada for over eleven years I have never visited the capital. This was an amazing weekend. The thing with short getaways is the limited time I have to see the city. I was able to see some touristic points and downtown Ottawa. Since I am a huge city girl I can’t miss what the center of the city has to offer.
The main purpose of my getaway was to go to the Embassy of Angola to take care of some documentation. As I mentioned on my “About” page I was born in Luanda, Angola. I needed to go to the embassy because my Angolan passport is expired. Having a dual citizenship I like to be on top of things and make sure my documentation is up to date.

African Couture Part 2

Since last year my African Couture was very popular I waned to make another post wearing an African dress around the same time that I posted last year. As I mentioned before I don’t wear a lot of prints, but when I do I prefer African prints.
Unfortunately you cannot find this dress anywhere. My aunt sent me the fabric from Angola  and I took it to my tailor to make this dress for me. I had a vision of how I wanted the dress to look and I was very happy with the results. Mytailor exceeded my expectations so much that with the leftover fabric I asked him to make a blazer. I hope it turns out to be a really nice blazer I will keep you guys updated on how it goes.
Thanks for reading.

 

90’s Inspired

Graphic T-shirt – Zara
Track Pants – Winners
Boots – Steve Madden
Beret Hat – Winners
Sunglasses – Call It Spring
Jacket – H&M

I call this look 90’s Inspired because it reminds me of how in style track pants were in the 90’s. I like how the trend at the moment is to wear track pants with high heel shoes or even high heel ankle boots. By pairing track pants with heels it gives a more feminine look to the outfit.
This style of pants can also be paired with another trendy hot item right now which is the ankle sock boot. As I mention before, I a try not to overlap trends together in just one look. This is the reason why I chose this simple ankle boot instead of the ankle sock boot which is an item that I feel could come out of style very soon.

Lets talk about beret hats for winter which I believe is a must have. Besides the fact that they are super stylish they can also be very warm. On bad hair days or low temperature days a beret hat can make your day and transform your look. Beret hats are all over Instagram worn by some of my favorite bloggers. It is amazing to see the many different ways beret hats can be worn.
