Posted in 514 Outfit Post, accessory, designer, dress, DVF by fashionista514 on June 25, 2009

What I’m Wearing

  • DVF Tunic Dress
  • Nine West Wedges
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs Wallet & Boho Bag
  • Stephen Webster dagger earrings (gift from the babe – just got them in from England!!! Blogged about them before – click the pink)
  • Paul Frank “Skully” bikini
  • Classic Ray Ban Aviators
  • Janet Miller tahitian pearl ring
  • MAC Dazzleglass 🙂
  • Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara

NOTES: Today was gorgeous… went to the poolside terasse downtown for some sangria with a view, guzzled some morning coffee (we went across the border early to pick up a convertible… :), chilled at the autoshop, had an awesome “homestyle” dinner with friends, saw Transformers 2 (I heart bumblebee), and picked up an adorable ferret downtown that instantaneously fell asleep on my lap! Day a definite success 🙂


Retro Glam Sparkle!

Posted in accessory, fashion, lipstick, makeup, online shopping by fashionista514 on April 9, 2009
Here are some personal pieces I put together to create a retro glam look – with a walk on the modern side (confused by my contradiction yet!?). I adore the colour black. In a patent shine, soft leather, faded out denim, sparkling or satin finish – black is multi-faceted and very versatile.
I scored these over the top chandelier earring diamond look alikes at Aldo for $30.00. I love pairing them with the faux diamond chunky ring (below) $25.00 (Aldo), jeans, and some killer heels… top it all off with black winged eyeliner and sexy is mine!

Around Christmas last year I treated myself to this gorgeous Gucci watch. I wear it like it is jewellery – not a watch. I love that it isn’t bulky and carries the brands signature horse bit trademark into its styling. One of my investment pieces!

The jewelled clutch which I snatched up from Nine West is another undeniable favorite and instant classic to my life. Altogether, this combo calls for a slick martini and MAC’s russian red lipstick to pull it all off 😉

You will see me sparkle from a mile away 😉

Louis Vuitton Organiser

Posted in accessory, fashion, organized by fashionista514 on April 8, 2009
Who knew staying organized could be so stylish? Last year (in October), I bought this Louis Vuitton Damier print agenda as a good omen for the upcoming year. I figured, as a young professional in the fashion industry I would need to look sharp and have all my shit together. Enter gorgeous agenda…
You know what… I was right – since the year has started it has always been filled to the brim! When I do not want to fill my bag with the brick that is my wallet (waaaay too many cards and membership shit), I put my plastic in the slots in the front and off I go!

It is a sanction away from palm organizers and blackberries that seem to only harrass you with who poked you on facebook….arg! Everything I need is in here… no dying battery, SIM card, or text confusions… simplicity!

This one was a limited edition print with illustrations of the famous Louis Vuitton trunks and luggage. Pages are replaceable in the format of your choice (weekly or daily), and edged in gold 🙂 Love it!

Pastel Perfection

Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum…

Okay, it is official. The classic Ray Ban Wayfarers have caught up with me.


These shades are pristine perfection in beautiful pastel hues – too bad I feel like a total dumbass when I try them on in the stores ;(. Ah well… to all those peeps out there that can pull these off –
