Cool Hunting: Beso Beso

I absolutely love Beso Beso Jewelry! Their rings, necklaces and bracelets have a cool effortless yet chic vibe that I love. They also use a lot of natural stone such as amethyst, quartz, onyx and jade. I absolutely must have the 'Barbie' ring in the Amethyst!
Beso Beso Aphrodite Ring $209.00, Barbie Ring $209.00

Holiday Looks

My absolute favourite time of the year is christmas. I love having a reason to spend time with family friends, buy gifts and most of all get dressed up. I find that a lot of people find it hard to find effortless, affordable, stylish looks for many holiday occasions.
Below are a few looks that I think would make a great Holiday ensemble.

Teal Top $245.00; Sequin Pants $300.00; Sequin Top $76.00; Black Trousers $85.00; White Blouse $115.00; Teal Shorts $60.00; Skull Bracelet $357.00; Black Shoes $170.00

First of all, I think you can never go wrong with adding a little sparkle, such as a sequin shirt, top or sweater. I love sequins and the Holidays are the one time of year that you can get away with wearing them head to toe!

Red Dress $95.00; Nude pumps $130.00; Grey & black dress $99.99; Black pumps $110.00; Camel Dress $95.00; Black studded pumps $995.00

I also love the idea of a classic, conservative dress in rich jewel tones. It is sophisticated and polished yet stylish.

Wardrobe Glimpse

I recently moved back home with my parents so I can start saving to buy a house. In doing so I inherited my first walk-in closet! I thought I would share some pictures so you could get a glimpse of my wardrobe! (It was a lot more organized before I looked at the pictures, so I apologize for the clutter!) As you can see I am currently obsessed with vibrant colour. I love the idea of adding a pop of colour to an outfit to give it that fashion forward edge. Typically in the winter colours are more muted but this winter the bright hues we saw in the summer are carrying over to winter as well.

Miami Getaway

I was recently lucky enough to go to Miami for a week (one of my favourite places). I was able to spend a week soaking up the sun and of course shopping. I absolutely love shopping in the US; prices are cheaper, taxes are lower and you can get a lot of unique stuff that you can't get here in Canada. Unfortunately we left the day before black friday so we missed out on the major deals, but also the craziness. Did a woman really spray people with pepper spray? 

Here are a few of my favourite purchases...
 Yves Saint Laurent Arty Ring aka my pride and joy!
 Michael Kors oversized runway watch  
 Toms Skull Shoes - Neiman Marcus

Alexander McQueen sunglasses - Neiman Marcus

Aren't they to die for?

New in: Fur Vest

I recently purchased this fur vest from Michael Kors. I had my eye on it since last year and I finally splurged and purchased it - and I am in love! Not only is it right on trend for this winter, but it is also extremely warm and looks good with almost anything!

Knit one Bead too

I have been really busy lately, and I have a bunch of new projects on the go. I recently learnt how to knit and I really enjoy it. I haven't finished my first project yet, but it's slowly getting there! I am currently working on two scarves - a circle scarf in a burgundy/burnt orange colour and another one in mustard yellow. My mom introduced me to this beautiful yarn and bead shop downtown Oakville called 'Knit one Bead too'. I have also have been busy beading and I have made a bunch of new necklaces and bracelets.

Eye Candy: The Coveteur

Orange Beauties

I apologize I didn't post much this week, I had a pretty hectic week. However, I still found time to make a few new pieces of jewelry and do a bit of shopping. Don't you just love my new orange heels? I also learnt to knit and I am beginning to make my first scarf! I would absolutely love to be able to make my own chunky scarves and sweaters. This weekend I celebrated my friend Danielle's birthday. We went out for drinks and headed to a new club called the 'Hoxton' downtown Toronto.

Aldo - $90.00

Aldo - $60.00


Here is a picture of a few of the girls and I waiting for the go train to head to Toronto. 
I wore a leather skirt and shirt from Aritzia, a Michael Kors belt, my new Aldo shoes and a Marc Jacobs clutch.

Topshop in Canada

I feel so out of the loop - I just found out that Topshop is opening at the department store The Bay in Canada! I am so unbelievably excited, and what is even more exciting is that the Toronto Queen Street location has already opened! The Yorkdale mall location is also opening October 5th. For those of you who aren't familiar with Topshop, it is clothing/accessory store based out of the UK which offers trendy affordable collections. Even though I have never been able to actually order anything off of their website I have still managed to go onto their website to browse and covet their pieces on almost a weekly basis. I am beyond excited that I can now own some of them!

New in: Gucci

I am still drooling over my latest purchase - my first pair of Gucci shoes! And the best part is that they were a steal! They were on sale for $149.00 at Holt Renfrew and I couldn't resist. I figure that I can still get some wear out of them in the winter if I pair them with black tights and a simple dress.

Look of the Week

Cream Tunic - Zara; Leggings - Aritzia; Watch - Michael Kors, Belt - Marciano

This week has been pretty cold and rainy, but it has been nice to get a little taste of fall and to be able to wear some of the chunky knits I purchased for the fall. This weekend is supposed to be beautiful so I am hoping to head to my cottage to enjoy probably the last weekend of summer weather. I was also able to do some shopping this week and I am super excited because I got a steal on a pair of Gucci ballerina flats - I will definitely post a picture of them! What is everyone up to this weekend?
