Some moments from the very crazy past few days of my life in Jamaica, with Ocean Style Magazine during their Fashion Show Case Weekend.

Here are some photos from another wondrous night with the Versace team and some friends, some backstage situations and some other moments from the Versace Versus launch party in New York City a week and some days ago. This was the second installment of my project with Google & Versace and definitely was a great way to end such a wonderful, short, but amazing and seriously magic trip to New York City.. This was also the night of my uncontrollable nipple that was flashing itself all sorts of places, I mean, no shame!
Here is a lovely photo of Alexandra, myself & Michael at his private event the other night in Toronto! This photo is also your first full visual of my LOOK #60 runway look from the Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2013 runway show which (if you follow me) is quite a transition from my normal outfits! These trousers really set me up with a new love affair with stripes, dress-trousers and the tucked top look! The event was such a success and Michael was such a pleasure to finally meet in person! I had such an amazing experience collaborating with Michael Kors leading up to this wonderful event! P.s. thanks for playing we found love, Alexandra and to everyone, keep on using the #MKToronto hashtag!
Just before the holidays came marching in, SONY held an event in Toronto featuring the range of their new Windows 8 Vaio Touch products as well as a group of Canadian influencers/taste-makers including moi, Jay Strut :)!! The event was to get the influencers/taste-makers to invite their audience/followers/readers/friends/fans to come out for the chance not only to hang out with some of their favorite bloggers but also to get educated on and see what the new Vaio Touch devices are capable of! click here to read more….
Last week something that I have been working on with, DIESEL, finally came out of wraps and to fruition! I teamed up with Diesel and reached out to three of my favorite fellow bloggers here in Toronto to bring together a fun night involving the bloggers’ (including me to!) unique styling and all the V.I.P. attendees of the night. We had major Canadian media and taste-makers voting the night away on their favorite looks and the winner will be receiving a $1,000 giftcard to the shop at Diesel! The night was such a success, the music was going (Naturally I told them to play RiRi).. The store is so beautiful and is Diesel’s third location here in Canada! I had such a blast working with Diesel and getting to know all the wonderful clothing and team at Diesel that much more! I am LITERALLY obsessed with the Diesel Black/Gold collection! It is ridiculously amazing!!
On Tuesday June 31st Toronto, Ontario. The Hudsons Bay’s The Room played host to a couple of fashions most desirable designers, enter Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, the duo behind the 2002 founded brand that has since won many awards like the Perry Ellis Award for New Talent, the Vogue Fashion Forward Award and the Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. The Proenza Schouler boys were in attendance for about 45 minutes before they were apparently whisked off to Bonnie Brooks house to have a lavish & society filled dinner that we must of forgot to rsvp to..
