Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, today is my Birthday, and coincidentally it's my day off as well! I'm really excited and happy today. Above is a picture of my Birthday cake from last year. A perfect cake for a fashionista, I must say. A special thank you to everyone who has given me lovely Birthday wishes. It truly makes me happy reading them! Thanks C for coming out last night! You're a true friend! I would also like to give a very special thank you to my wonderful boyfriend who has given me a fantastic weekend! *Muah*~ Can't wait to see some of my gal pals today. We'll see how my day goes!

Yours truly,

A Beaded Gem

Last night was an important night for Canada, as the 2011 Juno Awards were held in Toronto. It was a very special event since the Junos was celebrating their 40th Anniversary. Can you say "Oh, Canada!" My pick for the most memorable dress that evening would have to go to Canadian country songstress Shania Twain, who happened to be the 2011 inductee to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. What an honour!

Holt Renfrew Nabs Rodarte X Opening Ceremony

Woohoo! So I recently posted about The Bay getting Topshop and Topman in this post, but now word is out that Holt Renfrew is countering that by bringing in Rodarte for Opening Ceremony. How exciting is that?! This is sure one hell of a competition.

Chivalry is Dead

Well at least not for Tom Ford. Recently the famous fashion designer and newly accredited film director presented 5 lessons on how to be a modern gentleman in AnOther, and I find this quite interesting and intriguing.

Joe Fresh Grand Opening @ Heartland Town Centre

I went to Heartland Town Centre with my mother today and I found this pretty thing-a free-standing Joe Fresh store! I was screaming for joy when I saw it; I HAD to go in right away. Too bad it wasn't open yet...

Killer Accessories: Convertible Totes

I've been seeing this handbag style a lot as of recent, and I'm really lusting for one! These are convertible totes, and the cool thing about them is that the can be worn in many ways.

SSS: Lazy Sunday

I love Sundays because it gives me a chance to 'dress down' a little bit. I know, it sounds ridiculous coming from a fashion lover, doesn't it?

S/S '11 Trend: Juicy Fruit

Moschino Cheap And Chic
Hmmm...what an interesting trend. I guess when one thinks of warm weather, they think of fruits. What a great idea! There are a number of designers and fashion brands that have taken this trend on the bandwagon, and I couldn't be more delighted!

Out With the Old; In With the New Sales

It's that time of year where retail is a bit wonky. What do I mean by wonky? Well, it simply means that stores are trying their best to clear our their old Fall/Winter 2010 stuff to bring in the new Spring/Summer 2011 goods. Yes, and this is that time when sales are at its best (if they still have your size, that is). Click on the jump for this week's sales round-up!

SSS: Ready for Spring!

McQ jacket/T. Babaton tank top/Cupid jeggings/Balenciaga Giant City

Sexy Things: VAWK Lizard Embossed Cropped Leather Jacket

I have just recently discovered VAWK and I am in love! I happened to stumble across the Canadian-luxury label while strolling around The Room at the Bay. There is a hint of edgy yet feminine touch on each piece that the label offers, and this jacket is no exception.

Blake Lively in Chanel's Newest Ad Campaign

Blake Lively is one lucky girl! As one of the protagonists of the hit television series Gossip Girl, Lively has been one to watch for in terms of her fashion sense and style. Of course, we should thank her personal stylist, but one can't help but notice her on a red carpet event or a special soiree. Plus, her hot body makes clothes fit her oh, so very well!

S/S '11 Trend: Nudes N' Neutrals

Unfortunately the cold weather is still rolling around Toronto, which makes it much more difficult for me to wear my Spring wardrobe! I shouldn't fret considering warmer weather will soon be approaching. Another trend on my mind for Spring/Summer? The use of nudes and neutrals; whether it be on clothing or accessories, and I cannot wait!

Jay Manuel for ATTITUDE Sears

Most famous for hosting and judging Canada's Next Top Model, Canadian Jay Manuel announced on his blog that he has been appointed as Creative Director of Sears private label collection called ATTITUDE.

Au Revoir, Galliano

Fashion news becomes more shocking as the House of Christian Dior announced that they have fired him. The decision came to be after a video went viral on the internet of Galliano making inappropriate racial slurs and praising Hitler. For a person who has been a famed designer for a prestigious fashion house, it seemed extremely un-classy and ill-mannered on Galliano's part. So the final decision has been made, now what?
