For those who know me, you know I have a certain fetishistic nature towards certain fashion lines. No, not because of the status associated, not because everybody has approved of them and considers them in-fashion. Because they repeatedly give you the perfect fit every time. Styles that compliment and expand your lifestyle and breathe life into your wardrobe.
Pieces that become iconic. Staples. Beyond just your black and white basics – clothing with personalities of their own! Clothing that becomes your best friend all year round, and most importantly for many years to come!

Diane Von Furstenberg is an all time favorite. When I am not in jeans (and believe me, that is the only exception), I am wearing her tunics, wrap dresses, gorgeous black pants, and tailor trim cut blazers. Each piece oozes charm, and as a result I am constantly complimented.

Original prints, fun styles (sometimes very retro, like this gorgeous two piece bathing suit), and vibrant colours make it impossible for anyone to bypass you when you are struttin‘ your stuff down the street.

The DVF line is available online at:

Beautiful Days Ahead

It seems to officially be spring – hopefully I didn’t just jinx it! Montreal is coming alive with avid Terasse enjoyers and optimistic dog walkers! All I can say is ahhhhhhhhhh… what a relief! I mean, finally! I came across this painting and feel it expresses exactly the way I am feeling. No… I am not feeling like sloppy paint – but the colors are sooo cheery and refreshing, I can’t help but feel like they have the same positive effects as the days weve been having lately 😉 Get out and get some fresh air!

Can’t wait for Summer!

In the midst of the dreary January and February months, it is healthy to slip in and out of your winter fashion coma for the sake of your sanity.

Diane Von Furstenburg always perfects exactly what women want to be wearing in the swealtering months of summer. Transforming the cement streets into a tropical oasis, her dresses will be sure to make you yearn for a night out of refreshing mojitos and svelte pina coladas with the girls.

Make life stylish and easy with these strappy Joie back zip tan colored wedges. Great neutral color to wear casually with jeans or to tone down summers hot-blooded and exotic hues.
