Monday inspiration

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell, you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone is having a great start to their week.
I found these photos on the ThreadSence website and I had to share them with you.
The photos are trendy and inspirational.  I love the crochet details, the relaxed flowing fits contrasting with the more structured pieces, neutrals mixing with brights, florals and prints, bohemian and tribal accessories, a fedora, girly details... all heavenly!
Lots of great ideas for outfits that will keep you cool if it is scorching hot the way it is in Toronto.

Have a great week and check back soon!

More birthday fun

Oh it's simple, all the pain that you go through
You can turn away from fortune, cause that's all that's left to you
It's lonely at the bottom, man, it's dizzy at the top
But if you're standing in the middle, ain't no way you're gonna stop 


It was my friend Kristen's birthday tonight so I went out with some friends to celebrate!
Working at the club all weekend, however I will do a fall trends post and maybe some runway photos to get you inspired.
Even though I was not drinking tonight I managed to spill a little bit on myself, which you can notice in a few of the photos.  I should have expected this when earlier at home I had to change from the first outfit I put together because I spilled a ginger ale on myself while I was getting ready to go out.  It just wasn't my smoothest day, except I had a lot of fun tonight!  Here are some photos.
Dress - H&M
Earrings - Gift
Bracelets - Rainbow Jade & Magpie
Shoes - Anne Marino
Clutch - Coach

Do you and your friends have any birthday traditions?
I like singing birthday cards or funny cards that have nothing to do with the Holiday/theme/actual person you are giving it to.  Ours for Kristen sang Dun dun na na na na TEQUILA!!!

Kisses! Xoxo


Turn up the heat

I've been lied to and cheated on 
I've been shit talked, beat down, treated wrong, 
And I won't forgive or forget 
But I don't want to live with regret 
So I hope I can let go, move on, 
Try to forgive anybody who did me wrong 
Yeah right, I can hold hope, hoping it'll do but I don't think I got the will yet to...

Forgive, forget. That's a lesson that we haven't learned yet. 
We try, we cry. But a day doesn't die til the sun is set. 

My weekend was spent AT THE CLUB "working" (not too hard), lots of fun!  This week is going to be all about scoping out internship opportunities and developing a career path.  I only have a little bit of school left and then I want to get serious about working in fashion and communications!  I also have a lot of blogging planned.  I received a lot of clothing and jewelry for my birthday and I can't wait to share them with you!  Just a few photos from the last week for you!
My girlfriend and I were the bartenders for the evening at my friend's get-together!
We were joking around when some fancy Polish ballet music came on my friend's Ipod randomly and started dancing.
Dress - H&M ($7 - got another one that's pink and black leopard print)

Hope you have a great week! 
I won't be at work so I will be doing lots of blogging!

Kisses and love,


Bottle service

One day when the sky is falling 
I'll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you...
Nothing will ever come between us
I'll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you...

SO ridiculous when girls go out of their way to hate you just because their boyfriends like you or have liked you in the past.  I would think that you might want to blame your shady significant other instead of the girl he tries to get with.

I have fun doing my job and I love most girls who are confident and can show some maturity and class, it just sucks when those who do not possess these traits go out of their way to bring you down.  I just want to avoid the drama!  Some people don't realize that when you work in a club environment the security is there for you and if someone gets in your way or disrespects you they can be removed immediately!  I had to have a girl removed from my work because she heard I worked there and came in to cause trouble and it was not the first time, you think she would have learned her lesson.  Oh well!  I had a lot of fun and met a ton of great people and look forward to going back next weekend.

I have been applying for other more serious jobs in the fashion world!  Wish me luck everyone!

Here are some pictures of me at work!  If you read my blog regularly you will notice that these outfits are very similar to the ones I had to wear at my last job.  All black is getting boring!  I want a job where I can express myself with colours, they are so hot right now.

Bianca and I setting up my booth!
Friday night getting ready!
Love the mesh cut outs in the dress.
Playing around with my custom necklace from my birthday last year!
The red stilettos from the last post have been worn and will make it into a post coming soon.
Colour will be coming your way too!



Brights, whites and a day at the beach

I feel the breeze 
My top is down 
And all I do 
Is ride around 
And where I go 
I just don't care 
A place to chill 
To get away

I take it day by day 
No work or play 
Nowhere to stay 
And I just need 
To clear my mind 
To find my role 
In space and time

I'm just cruising 
And I wonder if I'll ever find my way


I went to the beach yesterday with one of my besties which was super relaxing!  I work tonight and tomorrow night as a bottle service girl.  That is the one job in the service industry I have not tried yet so it's pretty exciting!  Since I have the whole week free I will be looking for a career job soon.  I am 24 now and basically old enough to get out of the service industry!  Hopefully this new club will be fun it is a social club with a mature crowd.  Tonight I am wearing a black dress with blood red stilettos!  Stay tuned for pictures and don't forget to check out my last post with trend updates, more soon!  
Jen and I had a great time in Wasaga.  We laid on the beach, walked around and I handed out some promo flyers for the club... a lot of people seem really interested!

Let's go to the beach

Ohh been feeling so fly since you’ve been gone
My face to the sky, sunglasses on
Turnin' up the beat so sick
I’m like a brand new chick

Beautiful weather here in Toronto!  I am loving my summer.  I got a weekends only job doing bottle service at a swanky upscale chic sexy nightclub and I think it is going to be a lot of fun!  This way I can focus more on doing my blog during the week as well as looking for jobs in my field of PR & Communications.


Wedges are so hot right now!  You have to be careful because some wedges are just ridiculous and others are fabulous.  Here are some that I love.

Neon has made a huge comeback since my preteen years (back in the 90's) when everyone wanted to dress like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.  These bright hughes are huge this summer!  I am on a hunt for something in yellow, hopefully something similar to this gorgeous piece by Elise Overland.

I have always loved pink and this shade is stunning!  This dress by Jason Wu shows three other great trends, cutouts, maxi length skirting as well as sheer overlay.  Photo via Imaxtree.
Can't forget colour blocking!  I am on the hunt for something yellow and I love this whole outfit by Nina Ricci.  I would wear every piece especially the gorgeous high waisted skirt.  The bow detail on the top really adds perfect detail to finish the look.  Photo via Imaxtree.

Patterns are huge right now!  More trends to try:  Tribal prints & crop tops are super cute if worn properly.  Coming soon to a post near you.  Here is a great clutch I am lusting over by Jimmy Choo, it combines neon with a gorgeous leopard pattern!

I am loving the cigarette-hole and crochet effect for summer.   It is easier to layer on your knits when it is cool and breezy at night and it gives and edgy sophisticated look.  Today's outfit is brought to you by a gorgeous skirt I picked up at BCBG that features tiny cigarette-hole detailing that I am in love with!  The skirt is super soft and a pale, nude colour.  So many outfits planned for this baby!  Here are some photos of my outfit for today.
What do you think?  Shirt tucked in or out?  I am wearing my mother's vintage clock necklace and a stack of bracelets I grabbed randomly before heading outside.  The skirt was down from $220 to $50! 
Close up on the details of the cigarette-holes!  The skirt has a suede feel but not as heavy.
Skirt - BCBG
Top - Costa Blanca
Bracelets - Random & vintage (on the far right)
Booties - BCBG
Ring - Nanna's

I am working as a bottle service girl on the weekend!  Super excited to meet some new people and make some cash. 
For tomorrow... heading to the beach!  Which bikini to wear?  Hmmmm...
My camera is coming along to the beach with me!  Can not wait to soak up the sun.
