I’m in Nordstrom’s first Canada-wide campaign! Titled “True Nord“, the name is a play on words combining “True North”, a phrase from the Canadian national anthem and the word nord meaning “north” in French, to incorporate the second national language of Canada. I was one of 13 lucky individuals Nordstrom chose to help tell the story of Canada’s beauty, diversity, and all-around awesome-ness.
What do you think would happen if you gave 68 unique and different women one leather jacket to wear according to their own personal style? For the launch of their customized leather jacket collaboration, downtown Toronto fashion boutique Convey and leather design studio Namesake teamed up and did just that. And I was lucky enough to be one of the chosen ladies.
Any regular reader of this blog is probably asking that question right about now. What happened? Where have I been? Only three posts this month when I’m usually putting out twice that or more.
Suns out, buns out! Today marks Day 2 of Art Basel in Miami Beach and from what I’ve seen so far, I’m super jealous I’m not there, LOL. Most everyone who’s anyone in art, fashion, music, and culture is down in the 305 right now taking in the visual feast the city has to offer. Spanning 267 galleries, veterans and emerging talents in modern and contemporary art are showcasing their best sculptures, films, paintings, installations, and more. In addition to all of that, the city’s usually popping nightlife scene is heading into overdrive with the influx of A-list celebs that always come through for the festivities.
In honor is this awesome event running from December 3rd-6th I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite swimwear brands that if I were there, I would love to be wearing. In no particular order, these 5 brands embody the fun and adventurous attitude of Art Basel and I hope that by checking them out, you too get a little taste of what’s probably going down under the hot Miami sun. Slap on some SPF and get ready to sizzle…
Yesterday was Day 1 of the Spring/Summer 2016 season of Toronto Fashion Week (also known as World MasterCard Fashion Week) and I was happy to kick it off by seeing two of the runway shows that night, Matthew Gallagher and Sid Neigum. Both are highly praised as the next emerging voices in Canadian fashion with Gallagher’s aesthetic being soft, sweet, and feminine while Neigum’s is dark, powerful, and architectural.
Every year around this time Toronto hosts many big-name celebs and rising stars alike for the annual Toronto International Film Festival. Many movies make their premieres with there being over 300 screenings from more than 60 countries. Outside of the box office, the city is full of star-studded, red carpet events. This year TIFF is running from September 10th – 20th. While I don’t think I’ll be catching a movie this year, I did have the chance to attend one of the hottest, most talked-about parties of the season.
