InstaFashion: My Week In Photos

photo-20

 

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.

Let me introduce you to my giant fivehead…and another print!

Look For Less: Emmanuelle Alt

The Look for Less-Emm Alt

 

“Pardon? Je suis très, très stylish? Oui! Oui!”. Ok, my French may be rusty, but Emmanuelle Alt’s style is fresh to death.

Would you recreate this look for a mere $103, head-to-toe?

Happy Labour Day weekend, Lovelies!

 

The LOOK: trousers $29.95 | blazer $19.95 | tee $9.95 | belt $6.95 | heels $36

Borrowed From The Boys: Milan Vukmirovic

Borrowed From The Boys- Milan Vukmirovic

Photographer and creative influencer Milan Vukmirovic has earned his fashion stripes. The Frenchman seamlessly jumps from one endeavour to another (Fashion Photographer, Creative Director- Jil Sander, Co-Founder- Colette, EIC-L’Officiel Hommes, EIC- Fashion For Men) with his elevated-casual style influencing each project through osmosis.

 Are you a fan of Milan’s elevated-casual style? 

The Look For Her: blouse $35.99 | brogues $39.95 | jeans $80 | belt $16

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

The Tiny Times: Dainty Watches For Fall

The Tiny Times

Truth be told, I only own 2 watches. One large Michael Kors lucite piece and another small Bulova.  Another truth? I never wear them anymore! Ever since my iPhone and I became full-time lovers, strapping on a watch seems relatively pointless, but these dainty little watches have me thinking twice. For around $100 and under, I think maybe it’s time to revisit the watch.

Are watches still a must for you, or has your iPhone pretty much become the standard for telling time?

 

braided gold $108.34 | brown strap $46.17 | dark brown $93.73 | black $100.47 | silver $100 | black & tan $95.06 | black & white $60 | tan $32.66

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

 Loving my BrittanyChristinaDesign fishing lure earrings! Perfect for summer.

Stacking chunky bracelets- no dainty bangles for me!

  These leather Modern Vintage sandals are soooo comfy- highly recommend the brand. Quality.

Bright pants are my calling card. Still loving this silk tie-dye pair from Zara.

 Loving my destroyed denim. Ripped torn in Zara.

 

Ok, so it’s pretty obvious the My Style series on FatFreeFashion has been seriously neglected. Arranging the tripod outside my building or asking my Hubster to take a few pics of me everyday isn’t something that’s easily accomplished, so I’ve resorted to the next best method: Instagram!

Snapping a few #fromwhereIstand and #ootd pics is foolproof (and actually pretty fun!) so all of my outfit shots are there. If you’d like to join me, check out FatFreeFashion on Instagram. If you’re craving another slice of style inspo, but aren’t into Instagram, I’ll be sharing my looks here as a weekly round-up.

Have a great week, Fashaloonies! x 

Borrowed From The Boys: Nick Wooster

Borrowed From The Boys-Nick Wooster

 

Devoting an entire Men’s Style series to Nick Wooster is probably the best approach, but let’s start with a smart-casual look from him. Wooster has the ability to make even the fussiest menswear look completely modern and effortless- from prints, vests, dhotis and the-proceed-with-extreme caution short suit- there is no piece that eludes Wooster’s styling expertise.

Kayne, take note.

Do you kneel at the altar of Nick Wooster’s style shrine? 

pants $30.13 | cardigan $29 | shoes $105.87  | t-shirt $7.90 | sunglasses $26

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

Borrowed From The Boys: Haider Ackerman

Borrowed From The Boys- Haider Ackermann

 

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that there’s no style statement I love more than a great pant: printed, cuffed, high-waisted, cropped, drop-crotch, cigarette, peg-leg- there’s not too many styles I don’t appreciate, or wear on the regular. Menswear in general is a source of great inspiration to me, which is why I thought it would be fun to start a brand-new style series on FatFreeFashion: Borrowed From The Boys.

I often find myself on the Men’s side of Zara, H&M and Forever 21 simply because the slightly oversized cut, muted colours, clean prints and subtle textures really appeal to my practical sensibilities- labels be damned!

Borrowed From The Boys Menswear Muse #1? The always artfully deconstructed designer, Haider Ackermann. How cool is his look? Officially inspired.

 

Get his look: bomber $101.26 | trousers $95 | shoes $36.99 | scarf $29.95 | t-shirt $12.95 | sunglasses $6.80
