Hey guys! The lovely team at Mogo (a cool Canadian start-up) reached out to me and a couple of my friends to spread the news that tomorrow night they are coming to Toronto for their first ever #MogoPerks party! They teamed up with cool creatives, No Fun Press, Kastor & Pollux and The Creator Class to bring the city a lil kiki with drinks, art, fun and all that good stuff at Toronto’s Neubacher Shor Contemporary Gallery on Queen West. The event will also be featuring an installation by T.O. based artist Trevor Wheatley PLUS a live performance by an special guest and finally, the reason for it all, the unveiling of the brand’s new Mogo Prepaid Visa® Card co-designed with No Fun Press.

First of all can I just say congratulations to Sid Neigum and all the designers, stylists, photographers, and people who contribute to our industry who won that evening! I was so honoured to be a part of Sid’s army this year at the Canadian Art & Fashion Awards – I even had the pleasure of being nominated myself that evening. – When I was thinking of what to wear for CAFA this year I really wanted to be true to my style but take it out of the box and if there’s someone that could do that for me, it is without a doubt Sid Neigum! He was actually one of the first Canadian designers to ever dress me for a fashion show when I was first starting to take my blogging serious so I have such a sentimental place for him and not only that, he is also a friend of mine as well. Stay tuned for more photos I snapped from CAFA coming later this week! #CROPtopSWAGonFLEEK
Yes, we are literally only a few days from Sensation 2014, one of the coolest music festivals we have here in Canada. They literally take over an entire spots dome, which in our case is The Rogers Centre and turn it into one big… like.. EXPERIENCE! One of the best parts of this and in-fact my favourite, aside from the crazy things that go on inside and the music of course is the fact that this is an ALL WHITE attire event. You hashtag #LITERALLYMUST wear white. white pants, white tops white accessories.. All white EVERYTHING!.. This is not only so chic, so hamptons vibes with the open white button down vibes but also such an amazing challenge because you literally have to give a show in a sea of white.. That being said, I can NOT wait to share some of my favourite style from on-site at the SENSATION party that is happening November 29 and also share what I am wearing for the big hurrah to!! Maybe I’ll have a white fringe moment.. That being said, make sure to stay tuned to my social media for all the live moments as they happen from Sensation this Saturday! BUT UNTIL THEN!! I want to share some white fashion moments you can get for Sensation this year!
