Oversized Everything

Oversized Everything

 

I don’t know about you, but suddenly everything in my closet is somehow feeling a bit too snug.

Skinny jeans? No thanks. Sleek sheaths? Pass. Leather leggings? Errm, no. Maybe it’s the every-other-day occasional summer soft-serve talking, but I’m all about oversized everything for Fall.  Comfortable. Chic. Cozy 2.0.

Are you into this aesthetic?

InstaFashion: My Week In Photos

Behold, another week in Instafashion! Truth be told, until I started capturing my daily looks on camera, I had no idea of my obvious penchant for prints! Maybe I should leave some for the rest of Toronto, eh? Even my sneakers are loaded! Time to balance out with a few solids. #unlikely…;)

Denim…and a print.

I’ve been a bad blogger. The time I usually devout to creating content has somehow been overshadowed by squeezing out the last few weeks of summer (and the allure of my badminton rackets…) #majorgeek. I promise to get back on track this week, Fashaloonies! In the meantime, here is my week in InstaFashion!

 Have a fabulous weekend! xx

Fab Finds: Black & Grey

Black & Grey

 

Faaa-faaaa-faaaa-allll…..it’s almost here! Scary, I know. To ease the sadness of the impending 8 months of cold weather, I like to focus on the best part of fall: fashion!

Black and grey is my classic fall combo, and with each of these pieces ringing in at under $100, I think (maybe) everything will be ok. (Until the first snowfall…).

the look: coat $69.95 | sweater $19.95 | skirt $29.95 | handbag $99.90 | boot $79.90

Splurge or Save: Salvatore Ferragamo vs. H&M

Salvatore Ferragamo vs. H&M

 

H&M, you’ve outdone yourself this time. The fast fashion retailer has managed to produce a rather worthy replica of this classic Ferragamo flat. Although the faux patent leather will never be as supple as its luxury counterpart, major points must be given for the slightly angular shape and identical heel height.

Would you Splurge or Save?

Salvatore Ferragamo $450.00 | H&M $34.95

The Look for Less-Mira Duma

 

Russian socialite Miroslava Duma is a haute little mixmaster. Although there’s not a thing “budget” about her, her love of exaggerated silhouettes, bright colours, bold prints and intricate embellishment make her a fun street style star to follow. This particular look is a rarity: subdued (for her) and easily attainable for under $100!

Do you love her style?

LITTLE BLACK DRESS: 3 Work Outfits For Under $100

1 Piece 3 Ways- LBD For the Office

 

Assembling an office wardrobe on the cheap that doesn’t look cheap is no easy task. Decent fabrications and modest hemlines are an absolute must- and if you don’t have the time or inclination to suss out great pieces- can often translate into higher price points.

Lucky for you, I’ve been stretching dem dolla, dolla bills yo’ since I earned my first “real” (extremely modest) corporate paycheck, and am now a seasoned pro at styling a wardrobe that’s cheap, chic and water cooler friendly- with absolutely no Ann Taylor, Banana Republic or J.Crew required.

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Striped Dress, Under $100 Each Outfit!

1 Piece 3 Ways Striped Dress

It’s Spring. You’re broke. Everything in your wardrobe is tired, dated and just plain wrong. The urge to splurge on a statement piece that will spice up the dressing doldrums is high, but for sanity sake, step away from the fluro midi and reach for a simple striped dress that has the potential to be anything, for nearly every situation. True, on its own the dress is every shade of ‘meh’, but paired with the right accessories, this basic baby is a sartorial superstar. With each complete outfit ringing in under $100, updating your Spring look is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Do you love a good stripe as much as I do? What is your favourite way to style it?
