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

I have been looking for a new summer shoe, and have had my eyes on the Chanel espadrilles for a long time.
They are the perfect summer shoe… wear them with jeans and t-shirt, bikini or summer dress.
Now I just need to save my pennies as these puppies have a price tag.
I’m back!! After a lovely long weekend, some time to catch up with family and friends, and enjoy Canada Day… I am back and ready to get BLOGGING!
After a night of fireworks to celebrate Canada Day… my mind has wandered to the fact that America will be lighting up their skies with fireworks this Friday for Fourth of July. So I have decided to do a blog post on ways my American friends can incorporate their flag into their lives this Friday.
Clothing… probably the most obvious way to incorporate your flag. Their are many different clothing items promoting the American flag available for sale on the high street. However you don’t have to deck yourself from head to toe, you could just use one item… or create an outfit of red, white and blue…. e.g red top, blue shorts, white shoes.
Many of you will be getting your kit off this Friday… I am sure!… whether it is at the beach, back garden, pool whatever… everyone seems to get a little naked on July 4th. So show your patriotic by plastering your flag on your private parts! There are lots of cute bikini’s available at places like American Apparel, Target, Nastygal.
Having people over? Or just hungry? Food is the way… not only is it delicious but you can have some fun by adding the American flag into your meals.
Why not bring some of that pride indoors, adding decorative pieces to your interior is not only being patriotic but also making your space look great. There are so many DIY ideas online to add some flag into your house.
Now all that’s left to decorate is your car. You don’t have to paint the whole thing in an American flag… unless you want to, and if in that case don’t hold me responsible. You can add a simple car flag… these are super cheap and easy to get a hold of… especially with the world cup going on.
I hope you all have a fantastic July 4th… and an amazing long weekend! Be safe and have FUN.
I am away for the long weekend… Hope you all enjoy your time in the sun.
Oh also here is a little shopping trip … Prada Spring/Summer 2014 collection… discounted!
Thank me later.
So to put a damper on your summer (no pun intended), if you are in Toronto then, the heavens have decided to piss down on us today. So there really isn’t anything else to talk about but summer rain fashion.
On a rainy day … whatever the season… we look in our closets and always tend to pull out the darkest shades available… black, grey, navy blue. This is all perfect for me as I live in black and grey. Above are some outfit ideas for you to stay fashionable in today’s sucky weather.
Stripes seem to be the go to print during the rain… no idea why… but I dig it.
For this look I paired a striped Dr Denim ‘Blair’ long sleeve top, with Bershka’s boyfriend jeans… on the foot Saint Laurent studded Rangers boot. Don’t be afraid to add pops of color in your accessories, for this I added a Aldo necklace…. oh and don’t forget your brolly, this one is from Pasotti.
Black … it goes with everything and suits pretty much anyone. Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you still can’t rock the short shorts look, these are from Sheinside. If it’s a little chilly out pair those short shorts with a little extra coverage, add a big comfy sweater like this one from Enzyme. Add a little boot to keep those feet dry in the puddles… and these boots are actually from Payless! And of course compliment your look with some accessories, such as this sun, moon and star necklace from Charming Charlie…. and this rock star umbrella from… obviously… Alexander McQueen.
Just because it’s raining it doesn’t mean you have to stay inside, or wear a plastic poncho. You can look fashionable in the rain… rock those brollys!
So even though England is pretty much out of the World Cup… I am still on my high!
In fact, tomorrow night I will be heading to the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, to see my fav band and neighbors from Sheffield… THE ARCTIC MONKEYS!! Sooooo excited!!
So with them being British and of course myself being British I thought I would put together a concert style guide, with a Union Jack twist (pictured above).
This is probably my go to concert outfit as I am a bit of a lazy bum. Your fav pair of soft boyfriend jeans are the best thing to ever wear to a concert, as you can dance and jive and not have to worry about a single thing… your comfortable! I did want to ‘sex’ this outfit up a little, I did this by flashing a bit of belly skin, by pairing your jeans with a crop top. Now the shoes are my favorite part… but that’s probably because I already own them… these Union Jack converse beauties are the best thing to ever happen to your feet… trust me!
If your confident in showing off your stems… then DO IT! A cute pair of high wasted jean shorts are pretty much a concert staple … if you don’t have any, GET SOME! If you are like me and you ooze British pride then pair it with a massive ‘F’ off Union Jack sweater (which of course I own), however any big slouchy sweater is perfect for a concert, and will leave you feeling less self conscious about your teeny tiny shorts… however please do make sure the material of your sweater isn’t too heavy or you will be hanging out in your bra! To ice this outfit off add the British fashion icon of Dr Marten, and you are ready to rock and roll.
The simplest of looks here, and something I actually wear a lot of… the t-shirt dress. The most comfortable dress ever created. This burgundy River Island beauty is perfect for feeling absolutely comfortable at a concert, but also looking pretty bloody cute. Pair these with the classic British music festival shoe… ‘The Hunter Wellies’ and your set!
Going to concerts are so much fun. A time to sing, dance, and enjoy awesome music. I will certainly be enjoying myself this weekend… Arctic Monkeys watch out!
