Today Balmain showed their Spring/Summer 2017 runway show inspired by the unique strength of those strong women that designer, Olivier Rousting calls his Balmain army. Women that never shy away from showing their softer side, sure in the knowledge that there’s no longer any need to shout. For me the collection was quite a surprise, following all the Met Gala moments that ensued in New York I was sure that Olivier would be putting heavy, intense, high embellished looks down the runway for this collection but to my surprise he did the complete opposite and showcased a softer, lighter and flowier runway show which theoretically makes sense for a Spring/Summer collection! AS MUCH as you know I am obsessed with my pearls, crystals & etc. it is indeed refreshing to see a new style come into the ethos of Balmain.

Since starting my blog I have been so fortunate to receive some really great press, and of course, I’ve received some not so great but HEY! You know what they say.. All press is good press (in most cases)…. Last month I had an amazing interview with The Globe & Mail.. Which I would say is like the Canadian version of like the New York Times or Washington Post… We had a great conversation about the topic of the ‘influencer’ industry.. Fast forward to this past weekend and you can only imagine the shock I experienced when I saw that I had the honour of being on the cover of the STYLE section for the weekend edition of the paper.. What I thought, was going to be a few little quotes in an article turned out to be an excellent source of dialogue about a topic I am very passionate about and not to mention a good ol’ cover! I am still in awe of this amazing opportunity and am definitely crazy appreciative! Thank you G&M!

It was an evening to be greeted by open bars, futuristic art installations and a room full of amazing Canadian Influencers to kick off Rogers Cup and celebrate National Bank’s partnership with Tennis Canada… Thank for National Bank of Canada for inviting me out to enjoy a night of good music, good people and those chic tennis outfits that the hostess were wearing. I NEED THEM! Let me tell you, everything from that night was definitely snapchat worthy! Alt Court was a night to reinterpret the game of tennis and bring together the new generation. It was THE night to remember

I think I finally understand why Kanye makes t-shirts and sweat pants with holes & rips $500+ – He always speaks about trying to make fashion accessible and the irony is, in my eyes he absolutely is.. Fashion is not his line it’s the style his line represents… He is making fashion accessible by making the look easily attainable.. His style and clothing are currently some of the most trendiest and repeated looks in existence right now and the best part is that it doesn’t have logo’s or crazy details like that sold in a store such as Gucci or Vuitton or of the previous trends.. His clothing and aesthetic as coveted and as desirable as it is, can easily be duplicated, replicated and re-created for just about anyone.. His style and aesthetic is considered fashion so in my opinion, that is how he is making fashion accessible.. He is aiding in removing the idea of fashion being a cult of logos and prints to, in his case, simple garments in specific sizes and proportions, giving everyone who appreciates his aesthetic the opportunity to participate.

Im currently on this airplane home from New York… Stuffing my face with snacks right now and seriously… At this moment all I can think about is the delicious lunch I had a bit ago at the new Ritz Bar, here at The Ritz Carlton, Toronto. Just thinking about the authentic Peruvian flavors, the sauces (Oh you already know I LOVED the sauces) has my mouth watering right now. The Ritz Bar brought in a new concept that we definitely needed in Toronto with their Peruvian inspired Tapas style menu. Each dish has the right sauces to make your senses experience the rich flavour with every bite. ALSO.. You know how I’m all about those cocktails, so you can only imagine my excitement when the Ritz Bar created a handcrafted cocktail menu that incorporates Peru inspired flavors to complement each dish I was having. Enough food daydreaming right now, I can’t wait to get back to Toronto and indulge at the Ritz Bar, again!
