Goodbye 2016

Hey guys, this will be my last post of the year! To say goodbye I wanted to share my favourite looks/photos of the year. Btw, I never made a holiday post so I hope you all had a great Christmas weekend. Mine was quiet. My mom and I had lunch and walked around the city to look at the trees and lights, followed by lots …

Fishnets & Ripped Jeans

So fishnets are now socially acceptable. Or maybe just fashionably acceptable. In any case, they’re being layered under everything these days. If you haven’t noticed, here I am wearing fishnets & ripped jeans. I’ve been layering tights under jeans since I moved to Canada when I was 8. There are certain habits you learn growing up in a Russian home. Seriously layering up in the …

Ombre Sweater & Bomber Jacket

Two colourful outfits in a row (see last week’s light outfit), what’s gotten into me? This is a warmer upgrade of my Seattle outfit with an ombre sweater, a beanie and chunky platforms. I liked the burgundy bomber and grey jeans together so much that I wanted to wear them again. Clearly I’m a sucker for anything ombre. I’ve had my hair like this on and off …

Lighten Up: Teddy Coat & Ripped Jeans [+ Video!]

This is probably the lightest outfit I’ve ever posted. The only fully black thing I’m wearing are the patent leather boots. But it’s still a very me outfit – mixed textures and a cool print. Sometimes I surprise myself when it comes to fashion. I can’t always explain why I want to wear certain things. I have been wanting a teddy coat for a while though. …

Easy Luxe: Printed Blouse & Black Velvet Leggings

Confession: this is a total copycat outfit. Last year I saw a girl on the street who I thought looked so cool. She wore black velvet leggings, ankle boots, leather jacket and chiffon blouse flowing out from underneath it. Even my boyfriend said her outfit looked like something I would wear. I think it’s what really triggered my velvet craze. Her leggings looked so fresh after …

The Choker Sweater

Sweater weather. It’s never something I’ve looked forward to. I’ll always prefer summer clothes, but I’m actually enjoying this season’s knits and their details. Like this choker sweater from Sammydress. The choker looks cool, and it’s also super cozy. It’s essentially a built-in scarf that never gets in the way. And I love the zippers on the sleeves. Somehow, I’ve made peace with the approaching …
