BLACK ON BLACK ON BLACK

Screen shot 2013-09-23 at 10.28.46 PM

There is not a doubt in my mind that I would be completely happy wearing all black every day for the rest of my life. In my mind, its just the most practical and functional colour out there. I do however, take grief daily form my coworkers for the lack of colour in my wardrobe, and yes I admit that for someone with as bubbly a personality as mine, it seems a little odd. On that note, I would like to draw everyone’s attention to a recent style piece on blogTO titled “Shades of Black” – an article about how WEARING ALL BLACK IS IN THIS SEASON.

Looks like I was just ahead of the fashion curve (for once in my life). Take that!

All I have to say it, no one ever said “I can’t believe she wore black”

NASTY GAL

NASTY GAL

If you havent heard about Nasty Gal until now you may or may not be living under a rock. This online boutique total rocks and has transformed from an ebay page to a full blown fashion frenzy. It has funky, edgy, trend-inspiring looks for super cheap (the only problem is us Canadians have to pay duty on all orders which kind of blows, however worth it!). This sassy company has stayed true to its rude girl roots and the CEO, LA homegurl Sophia Amoruso,  keeps on pushing street fashion forward so quickly its hard to keep up! This company is growing at 500% annually which means big things for the future. Watch out for their  first catalog and magazine ads to be launched this month!

COMMON SORT: PARKDALE

20130822-221225.jpgOne of the many joys of working on the boarder of Parkdale is all the fantastic shops that I can hit on my lunch break and Common Sort is by far one of my favourites. Don’t be deceived by it’s small entrance on Queen St., this place is huge and has so many treasures just waiting to be loved again. I’ve been looking for some causal walking boots for quite some time now so when I stumbled upon these Sendra boots (yah, the ones that are handmade in Italy) for a mere $40 I felt like I hit the jack pot and after putting them on, I would be happy if I never had to take them off my feet. I also picked up a cute top for work for $16 and can’t wait to work it into my fall wardrobe.

Fall is a great time to get creative with clothing and these prices and selection can’t be beat! One weekend soon, go and check out the store and if you’re in the neighborhood, might as well pick up a taco or two at Grand Electric if your intense shop-a-thon leaves you craving some good eats.
