Something New.. Something Vintage.. A New Year with something vintage…. It’s 2018 and normally in the New Year, I like to treat myself to that one statement piece that I add to my collection. Every year it’s something from a Hermes or Chanel bag, a iconic jacket, new pair of designer shoes, etc. If you know me, then you’ll know that this year I have already been lusting over something a little more along the lines of a timepiece and what better way to start your first piece of the collection than with Rolex! I’ve personally been lusting over the ever so classic and timeless Vintage Rolex watches from Bob’s Watches most specifically this Gold Rolex Presidential reference 118238 (seen above). Obviously, this watch is an icon and one of the most recognizable of the Rolex, and more superficially Rolex President family! Constructed in 18k yellow gold, Rolex makes their watches with only the best materials. I love the classic shape, the roman numerals, as well as the champagne color on the dial, and of course, the signature day and date additions. Another option that has interestingly been creeping up on me (which I would of never expected) is the Rolex GMT-Master style which you can see below. There is something about the strong and masculine face and weight of the watch that I find attractive!!! The GMT-Master features an extremely rare all-blue bezel, nicknamed “blueberry”, is actually valued at a higher price than the entire watch itself. This watch is simply eye-catching. Geeze! SO many options BUT I definitely know it will be a Rolex from Bob’s Watches.
I don’t know what it is, but as of late, I have been craving a new piece of jewelry. I was thinking of upgrading something that I already have. Then it hit me, instead of a specific piece of jewelry, why not get something a little different like a watch. Since coming to this realization I’ve been in the market scanning, scoping, and doing my research on all the different luxury watch brands and keep gravitating towards the classic Rolex. There is no doubt that it is one of the most iconic and well-known watch brands so I thought to myself “Why not start there!” I’ve been searching the web and while browsing I came across Bob’s Watches. To my surprise, WSJ dubbed them as “One of the largest watch trading sites” – And saw such an amazing selection of Rolex’s available! I was/am shook by the selection, how many options, link styles, face colours, bezels, etc. That being said, I haven’t decided if I want to go with a modern or a vintage Rolex. I am going to continue to do my research and hopefully will have some new goodies to share with you guys soon!!!
After all the excitement of the announcement of Puma teaming up with The Weeknd to create a collaboration I was super excited to see what everything would look like!! I of course loved the first drop of the Ignite limitless kicks and now I must give the crown to these! The Puma x The Weeknd Parallel Boots! I am not much of a boot/sneaker person, for myself, I think they look so good on like guys LOL!! I like either or, but these… No word of a lie, like made me be like “#DAMNiNEEDTHOSE!” I didn’t even give my Puma fam a chance to offer them to me before I was e-mailing and asking! There is something about the silhouette that makes them light enough to apply to my style! I also love the super thick sole!!! I think what also helps is that I am into this baggy track pant and sweater vibe right now even though yes, it is like 30°C outside.. BUT YOU KNOW!! IT IS WHAT IT IS LOL!!!! Scroll down for more pics of the kicks!!!!

Livestock in Toronto, OTH in Montreal and NRML in Ottawa!!!!! So place ya calls and get in line because these are a drop worth waiting for!!!
There’s nothing like Miami especially when you get to go with your best friends or family or people you just love. Now just imagine that plus getting to rock some new favourite fashion from Puma! A couple weeks ago now I jet setter three hours south with my friends down to South Beach where we turned it up turned it out lived in large and just plain out had fun. We went for two nights for my friends birthday and really really made some memories. Even though we were only there for a couple days it felt like we were there for a week because of all the Fabulous stuff we did during our time there from amazing dinners and lunches days at the beach to party party parties! Aside from all of this madness I also got to debut a pair of my new Tsugi Shinsei from Puma that I have been waiting to wear and thought why not wait for Miami because it would be the perfect destination to rock all white like it’s nobody’s business!!! I definitely have to say it was an added bonus that the Tsugi Shinsei shoes also double not only as one of my best looking shoes but AS ONE OF MY MOST COMFORTABLE hands down!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!.. The sock like structure and feeling makes them a breeze to slip on and just get going with!!! Oh and of course, the Puma x Rihanna, Fenty collab Kimono jacket made it’s debut too because #YASSSSSS!
Probably one of my.. IF NOT.. My favourite collections from New York Fashion Week!! When I saw the crystal pieces come down for the final three looks YOU already know I started shaking in my boots! I literally have never needed anything more in my entire life then I need that crystal jumpsuit on Jasmine Tookes!
Haute Couture is something of a phenomena for me.. I say this because a couple years back I had the pleasure of being a guest of Chanel and travelling to Paris to experience the Lesage & Lemarie couture ateliers where I really got to see, learn and feel the passion and artwork that goes behind creating couture pieces.. The endless hours of embroidery, the insanely precise attention to detail and of course the beautiful and untouchable work that ends up being produced..
For Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2017 Haute Couture collection (that I am sure we ALL unapologetically glued our eyes to during Couture Week) Karl Lagerfeld ‘transposed the ambiance of 31, rue Cambon without copying every detail.’ Inspired by the very things that are iconic Chanel… One main part being the mirrors that reflect the grand staircase leading up to the CHANEL Haute Couture salons, makes this collection one of my favourite Chanel Haute Couture collections to date, and that is pretty monumental for me considering that Chanel’s Fall 2010 Haute Couture collection has not only been a favourite from the brand but has been one of if not my most favourite Haute Couture collection in GENERAL!! I loved the super metallic and slick vibes.. It was such a contrast of such futuristic elements but with classic silhouettes.. I loved how Gatsby from the future, everything felt!
This season Karl Lagerfeld maintained his mastery at blending fabrics to create such unique textiles for the garments… I saw a lace laminated in a sort of plastic intertwined into a jacket that you would never notice until you really looked and felt.. The extreme sequin tuxedo literally had me wishing I could find prince charming already and plan my fitting for my wedding look #YASSSSS!! There were so many overwhelming moments for me because YOU KNOW how much I love sparkle and shine when done so, so tastefully!! This was literally yet another dream-like-state-inducing-experience c/o of my friends at Chanel!!! See more pictures below and be whisked away to another reality with me.. Even just for a moment!! Enjoy!! Xx
“You can have a girl jump around and have everything beautiful, or you can choose to tell a human story that highlights someone you love,” told Brandon Maxwell about his Spring 2017 campaign.. And that this did, literally hooked my eyes to the screen from that beginning March on the Detroit streets to the closing of the divider at the end… Designer, Brandon Maxwell enlisted his close friend and muse Riley Montana to share a glimpse of her self showcasing her Detroit roots.. Captured by filmmaker Jessy Price the eye-opening mini fashion film showcases not only the humble roots of a fashion power’s muse but of course also the gorgeous clothing of designer Brandon Maxwell’s Spring 2017 collection… Enjoy
I think one of the biggest surprises that hit the mens fashion week runways was definitely the collaboration between Louis Vuitton & Supreme! I think it quite literally broke the fashion industries & hype-beasts alike internet lol!!! It was in a fashion + street-lovers sense… SENSORY OVERLOAD!! Here are some exclusive behind the scenes images I got from the Louis Vuitton Press Release to share with you guys!
I am freakishly mesmerized by this coat that shows during John Galliano’s Spring 2017 couture collection for Maison Martin Margiela…. The piece, which showed in Paris just a few days ago now, during the couture shows shares a face moulded and embroidered from tulle on a simple long coat which I just can not take my eyes off of… Quite frankly I find this is just simply genius and the epitome of wearable art… This is really John Galliano re-asserting himself as one of THE creative forces in fashion… I literally wish to have been able to see this move down the runway… I feel, this moment just needs.. Well… a moment!
Debuting at the Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear show, the Chanel GABRIELLE bag is a ‘mischievous wink to Gabrielle Chanel’. Karl Lagerfeld wanted it to have the same aesthetic and practical spirit in that blend of strength and elegance that characterises CHANEL handbags. Fitted on a rigid thermoformed base, the main body of the bag is extremely light and ultra-supple: this contrasting structure gives it perfect stability and makes finding belongings effortless. In tune with a continuing search for comfort advocated by the founder of the House, it hugs the silhouette, moving with the gait and never hindering it. Its adjustable strap comes with a double chain woven from leather and golden and silver metal. A highly original detail permitting several ways of wearing it: over the shoulder, across the body or both at the same time, with the chain going over one shoulder and then diagonally across the other. Here is your first look at the bag via a sketch by Karl Lagerfeld, himself! Also, Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret and Pharrell Williams, all CHANEL ambassadors, along with Cara Delevingne, a friend of the House, to embody CHANEL’s GABRIELLE bag.
