It is my yearly ritual to push wearing open toe shoes as late into the year as possible. I will basically wear shoes that bare my feet until there is snow on the ground. So I took it upon my self to carry out this tradition and put together an ensemble that exercised this annual tradition.
Need a fall shoe guide? Well you’re in the right place! With a new season, come new schedules, outings and commitments. Welcome to the one place that will outline everything you need to know about your 2014 Fall shoe game.
If you’ve seen lug soles, I’m sure you had the same initial reaction that I did – I WILL NEVER WEAR THOSE. But it seems that my spice girl platform wearing days aren’t farfetched. They are starting to grow on me. Forget the adjustment of accepting these bulky shoes, the comfort level of these podiums is on another level!
Greetings Fall – officially! Thank you for gracing us with your presence (insert sarcastic face here). I usually am over the moon thrilled with this season but because I live in Toronto and my summer was so short – I don’t know how I feel about coat season just yet. With that said, the positive part of a new season is the new trends that it brings with it. Cooler temperatures are clearly prevalent this time around so a coat, jacket, throw over is necessary. Let me take this moment to review the must have pieces of 2014.
My favourite of this year has to be the long trench. This versatile baby will compliment any casual or formal attire you choose to pair it with. Zara currently has a great selection!
I have two words for you! ROBE COAT! I am currently obsessed! Ladies trust me when I say – this long cover up is going to be around for a long time so just invest in one that will last you a few seasons!
Personally, I think that Autumn certainly has to be one of the trendiest seasons. With that said, we see a lot of interesting styles that may or may not be timeless but either way we embrace them because they look THAT good. Capes fall into this category. Capes come in all shapes and forms so make sure to find one that flatters your body form.
Quick video about how I use one of my most favourite products of the year – the Babylyiss Titanium Miracurl! This is to achieve a very messy look, not put together look – just the way I like it!
p.s., Don’t mind how I look, super fast video before I got dressed!

So the weather is definitely a little more crisp and if you are out and about in the evening without a jacket or some sort of cover up – then you are extremely brave in my books! Personally, if I’m cold, my whole day, my mood, my everything is off. I ADORE the heat but detest the cold. Living in the polar vortex that is Toronto, it is challenging to find ways to rock unworn summer gear yet allow it to compliment the temperatures outside. Here is my first attempt.
HOT TREND ALERT! I’d like to welcome with open arms a trend that I am absolutely obsessed with! Sheer Paneling! If you haven’t seen it around – what rock are you living under? These racy pieces are so sexy, so sleek, and such a huge statement!
The wonderful season of summer always brings forth some amazing trends and some not so flashy ones. But with 2014, came something absolutely original and innovative. It’s called pelvage. For those of you who have never heard of the term – don’t fret. Pelvage is basically cleavage of the pelvic area. Within recent Hollywood trends alone, we’ve seen the slit slide up the bare leg all the way to the pelvis.
