Fashion is cyclical and swings in a pendulum. Diffetent trends come and go with various shapes and silhouettes coming in and out of style. The year is about halfway over and I think it’s fair to say 2017 is the year of the sleeve.
Back in July I debuted Part 1 of my series on this awesome reversible satin bomber jacket from Topshop. I wanted to show just how cool and versatile it really is. Satin bombers have been everywhere this summer and if you’re going to try out the trend, here’s the one to do it with. Dress it sporty, girly, or a little tough. The choice is yours and the possibilities are endless.

As soon as my ticket was booked to Montreal I instantly started thinking about what emerging labels based there I wanted to shoot with. The first one that came to mind was Atelier New Regime. Modern. Street. Well-designed. Socially aware. In my mind, this collaboration was a long time coming…
Every year around this time a new class of students completes their current level of education and must decide if they will advance to a higher level or enter “the real world”. I was 17-years-old when I graduated from the charter arts high school I had been attending in Michigan. I had been accepted to Savannah College of Art and Design’s Fashion program with a scholarship and was so excited to be beginning this new chapter all on my own.
That was years ago. I am very different from the bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, out-of-state pupil I started out as. If I had to go back and do it again, there are definitely things I would change and some I wouldn’t. But since I can’t, hopefully this open letter to my former self will be of help to those now in the same shoes I once wore.
It’s been raining for about two days straight here in Toronto. The wind is getting cooler and I wore my Timbs for the first time since winter yesterday. Everyone around me is getting that requisite cold you get when the seasons start changing. It’s safe to say summer has breathed its last breath and fall is here. Realizing that cold temperatures are coming saddens me a bit as I love the warmer months and winters here are so brutal so I thought now would be the perfect time to daydream a little and post my last summer-themed outfit set.
