Some Of My Fav Looks From The COS Spring/Summer 2017 Lookbook

UBER COOL swedish style brand COS, maintains their sleek and minimal design but incorporates a utilitarian chic aspect to it all for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection…. With (for the brand at least) a spectrum of colour ranging from blues and sands to salmons and greens, the Spring Summer 2017 collection features a range of styles.. Personal favourites? I love the blue jackets, the proportions to the shade of blue is perfect, I also love the green jacket above! I think it’s a great layering piece and I can just imagine it with a pair of black leather pants, my favourite boots and a black turtle neck under while I stomp through the Jardin Des Tuileries, in Paris, come January for fashion week!!


ALSO, in other COS related news, the brand has opened it’s third retail location inside of Toronto’s (NOW ICONIC and luxury infested mall) Yorkdale Mall!! I had the pleasure of checking out the store last week and must say it is another beautiful space by the brand!! Can’t wait for many shopping excursions to the mall with COS in mind!


Luxury + Dining; Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée

I first discovered this restaurant online about a year and a half ago and was just memorized by the dream like state it left me in and more if anything the dream like state it was! I had really never seen anything quite like this before, it is magnificent to me!! Now some time later I am hitting myself on the head for being to zombified by this beautiful venue that I forgot to share… Here is the luxury dining space by Alain Ducasse in the Paris’ 5 Star luxury hotel, Plaza Athénée… You know that iconic and magical hotel Carrie Bradshaw stayed at in Paris!?!? See some pics of my next MUST-GO spot when I am in Paris next!!! And maybe you are doing what I am doing, but based on how beautiful the venue is I am just assuming that the food is equally as magnificent! I am literally planning my rehearsal wedding dinner here for when I get married.. NOW.. ALL I NEED IS THE GROOM!! LOL!! You know that iconic and magical hotel Carrie Bradshaw stayed at in Paris!?!? See some pics of my next MUST-GO spot when I am in Paris next.


Art; Donald Martiny

I instantly fell in love with the work of Donald Martiny, upon coming across his work online while scrolling through some of my favourite tumblr’s and websites. I love how he has taken something so practical and overlooked, being the simple stroke of a brush and turned it into it’s own being and work of art, the simple curves and twists that the brushes make evoke emotion and play with light without having to do anything…. As you can imagine a Martiny piece does not come cheap with the general range starting at about £17,000 to upwards….

“Donald Martiny’s work forces us to question the established definitions which form the backbone of our understanding of painting as both a pursuit and a product, and of paint as a medium. In challenging the viewer in these ways, it is not only visually exciting but intellectually invigorating.”

Unboxing The #Hermes Swift Leather ‘Kelly Cut’ Clutch with Silver Palladium Hardware

Am I ever excited to share with you the newest addition to my Hermes collection! I am still in a state of disbelief that I was able to acquire this beautiful piece so quickly and effortlessly.. As I’ve read and been told in the past, the Hermes Kelly Cut (the clutch version of the Hermes Kelly Bag) is one of the rarest leather bags to acquire from Hermes, mainly because it’s produced in such low quantities in comparison to the (of course, iconic) Birkin & Kelly bags. From some insight that I received and overheard since inquiring about acquiring this piece, I learned that at the Madison Avenue store in Manhattan they had only received about 11 Kelly Cut bags this year so far which when you really think about it is quite crazy considering the the volume of the other products they have even including Birkin’s & Kelly’s. I personally fell in love with the bag quite some time ago after seeing it countless times flaunted ever so chicly by it’s wearers… I made my inquiry about a month and a half ago for my dream Kelly Cut bag.. It would have to be in silver hardware and black swift leather which I thought would be so edgy, simple and chic AND of course, go perfect with my mountain of leather jackets and leather pants!!! AND fast forward a month and a half later and there it was! Exactly what I wanted (my FIERCE little dream!)… Keep scrolling below to see a few more pics of the bag being unboxed!!
