Although they have introduced similar collections in the past, this new collection offers a wide range of fashion pieces and a variety of styles and price points. Beautiful dresses, pants, tops, and jackets are just some of the pieces included. Amazing embroidery and bead work, as well as simple and flowing lines, make this collection fabulous.

Event: Toronto Gets [FAT]!

Heya! Last week I had the opportunity to attend the opening night of Fashion Art Toronto ([FAT]) Arts & Fashion Week, formerly Alternative Fashion Week. An event that has been going on for 9 years and has become the biggest multi-arts festival of it's kind in Canada. It is a great way for emerging and unknown designers and artists to showcase their creativity in over 50 runway shows, a variety of live performances, fashion films, and photography and art installations.

Exhibit: The Bata Shoe Museum Shows That Sneakers Are Good For The Sole!

Heya! Last week I decided to visit one of my favourite Toronto Museums: The Bata Shoe Museum. I haven't been in a while, but one of their latest exhibitions Out Of The Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture, caught my attention. What I first noticed about this exhibit, was how different it looked from The Bata Shoe Museum's other exhibits. It is modern, sleek, and vibrant. Like most of the shoes on display.

Style: Endless Style Options!

Heya! I love finding new ways to style items in my closet. A great way to save money is to buy a versatile item, like this black pleated skirt from H&M, and wear it with different items I already own, to create create endless style options! And for less than $40, this pleated skirt is a fabulous addition to my wardrobe. I styled 3 different looks with my new H&M skirt with pieces I found in my closet. 

The first look I created was a fun and funky outfit, perfect for meeting friends on a sunny patio or an afternoon visit to an art gallery. I love adding fun and whimsy to an outfit with cartoon prints.

Beauty: Fabulous Hair from L'Oreal EverPure!

L'Oreal EverPure Haircare Review

I always had trouble with my hair. Not only is it extremely thick (which every hairstylist I have been to, has commented on) but I have been colouring it regularly for over 15 years. It sometimes becomes dry and hard to manage. I find that a lot of the shampoos and conditioners on the drugstore shelves make my hair frizzy and heavy. That's why I was so excited to try L'Oreal EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System. The color care system includes shampoos, conditioners, and hair masques in 3 different formulas: Moisture, Volume, and Smooth. I have been using the Moisture Formula line for over a year now and I am in love!

Style: Party Ready!

Heya! Spring is finally here and I'm getting a little anxious with the many special events and parties I need to attend over the next several months. Not only is my sister getting married in September and I'm her Maid of Honour, but I have several family, friend, and work events. I want to look and feel my best at all these events, without spending a fortune. That's why I was so happy to come upon this fabulous dress from H&M.

Exhibit: Misled By Nature At MOCCA!

Last weekend I visited the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) for the first time. I have been walking by the museum for years and always enjoyed the large painted murals outside the building, but I heard about their newest exhibition Misled by Nature: Contemporary Art and the Baroque, and I had to stop in and take a look.
