How a pop of colour can steal the show

I’m madly in love with this Wet N Wild MegaLast Lip Colour in Don’t Blink Pink. Isn’t it fabulous? It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t dry out your lips at all. It was the perfect POP of colour to add to my otherwise neutral outfit. (Enter to win this fabulous lipstick here.)

I’ve been so obsessed with pale grey lately – I don’t know why – and so I wanted to try out a grey look. I tried to keep it a little bit exciting by choosing a fur trimmed bag in an olive green and patterned jeans. Unfortunately, I don’t have any grey shoes so black it was. I have seen a cute pair of grey ankle boots at Aldo though. But, I don’t need anymore shopping ideas – I have enough as it is.

Shop my look:

Gap t-shirt, here.
Uniqlo skinny jeans, similar here.
H&M Conscious Collection trench, here.
Black ankle boots, similar here.
Aldo bag, similar here.

Kate Moss - Look for Less

Dine in style like Kate Moss – for less

Kate Moss was all giggles and smiles as she and her hubby went out to celebrate her 41st birthday but what is she so happy about? The outfit or the night? My bets are on the outfit because it is a terribly fabulous one.

What they say is true – Moss is Boss. It’s incredible how she can turn something as simple as a black top, black pants and platforms into such an extraordinary outfit. Wouldn’t you agree? I mean, how can you not? She looks absolutely knockout.

I tried to round up some similar pieces for you to shop and yes, I know the coat is a little different, but unless you’re willing to fork out thousands for a replica, this is as good as it gets. If you do want a cheaper fur coat, vintage and thrift stores are an amazing place to look. I got a knee length faux fur from a thrift store in Toronto for $15! You cannot go wrong with that.

The 10 best fashion moments at the SAG Awards – plus 3 honourable mentions

I just love red carpet fashion, don’t you? It would be such a dream come true to be able to style someone for a red carpet one day. Until then, I get my fix during awards season.

There were plenty of eye catching ensembles at the SAG Awards tonight – a couple of my favourites being Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike and Maggie Gyllenhaal. As per usual, there are some stars who just miss the mark on the red carpet (it’s probably their stylists fault anyways) and they shall remain nameless.

My top 10 includes about half black, white or black & white dresses but I’m thrilled to see some pops of colour as well – Sophia Bush stunned in orange and Camila Alves complimented the carpet with a deep purple gown. However, even the black and white dresses didn’t fail to impress in the way of cut and textures!

Check out my top 10 and let me know if you agree.

I had to keep myself limited to 10 spots otherwise I could have gotten a little crazy with 30+ good looking celebs out there tonight, but I thought I would give a couple honourable mentions as well.

The woman most after my leopard print heart: Kelly Osbourne.

The most grown up TV kid: Ariel Winter.

The most unlike her TV personality: Mayim Bialik.

Hope everyone had a fabulous Sunday.

How to wear winter whites

Please tell me you’re not one of those people who think it’s positively sinful to wear white after Labour Day? Okay good, because I love wearing white all year round. Maybe I do things a little opposite – black in the summer, white in the winter. To me it looks good so, whatever.

If you’re strictly into following guidelines, I suggest checking out this post on the 8 fashion rules you need to BREAK now.

There’s something about wearing white in the winter that brightens up a gloomy day. I try not to wear white only though – for one, because the only white coat I own is a denim one and it would be far too cold in the winter, but also because unless it’s textured, I don’t like the whites to all fade into each other. I’d much rather spruce it up with this leopard print Topshop coat and black heels.

I bought the white dress I’m wearing from Premonition Designs last year when I was working there as an intern in Sydney, Australia. It’s one of my favourite white dresses in my closet. I love the leather accents on the sleeves, the mesh cutouts and of course, the pockets. Surely I’m not the only one who thinks that dresses should more commonly have pockets?!

Here’s my take on how to wear winter whites. Shop my outfit below.

Moto jeans, here.
Kate + Mel heels, here.
Topshop faux fur coat, here.
H&M earrings and rings, here.
