Hello my loves!
This morning I finally received my shipment from Zara. I have been DREAMING about these shoes, well the Saint Laurent version… but what a dupe! What a bargain!
These Zara glitter booties are such a staple in my closet already… and it’s only day one!
How perfect are they! Wear with Jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses ANYTHING!!
Here are some pics of my outfit of the day!
They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html
– Comfort level 8
– The glitter stays on
– No grip on sole so can be slippy
– They had sold out of most sizes, I am a small 7 but ordered a 6 1/2, they fit perfectly

After a great Saturday night with some amazing friends, drinking in the moonlight… it was pretty simple to figure out what I wanted to talk about today……ALCOHOL.
Last night I figured I would let my Canadian friends in on a British summer treasure… The Pimm’s Cup. May I say… THEY BLOODY LOVED IT!
The Pimm’s cup is an incredibly refreshing drink consisting of:
You can also add things like: raspberries, strawberries, oranges, apples, mint etc. It’s also a cute idea to serve your Pimm’s cup in a mason jar.
So if your looking for a new summer drink, do try out the British classic…. I know you’ll love it. But do be warned it can be deadly.
My style crush of the week is the gorgeous Rosie Huntington Whitely. My British sister RULED this 2014 Cannes Film Festival with her effortlessly chic looks.
I want to wear EVERY single outfit… waaaaaaa
She wore a slinky black Cushnie Et Ochs dress for the De Grisogono party she finished it off perfectly with a pop of color in her earrings.
For the premiere for ‘The Search’ she wore a perfectly fitting embroidered Gucci gown with minimal accessories.
To top it off she killed it by wearing a Emilio Pucci gown to the amfAR Aids Gala… although pointer I did hate the black shoes.
Well Miss Rosie Huntington Whitely a massive congratulations to your talented stylist… and of course you for creating yourself some show stopping Cannes. STUNNING!
For my first fashion Friday, I wanted to talk about something that is a staple in my closet!
I have pretty much been OBSESSED with jumpsuits for the past year and I am so happy that they are now accessible to purchase thanks to our wallet happy friends … H&M, Forever 21, Zara etc.
There is something about a jumpsuit that is so chic… they are so comfortable.
Wear it casual with a pair of flats or your fav converses for a casual everyday look or spice it up for a night out with a pair of heels.
However you wear your jumpsuit just know you look chic … without the effort! (shhh)
