Summer In Toronto

Summer in Toronto has been a little anti-climactic. An extended spring seems to have never quite given way to summer, even long after the summer solstice has passed. Things haven’t felt as bustling as they have in the past. And me? I’ve been locked away in my own world crafting something special.

Why I Became A Blogger and What We Can All Learn From Millennial Artists

There are many reasons bloggers decide to start chronically their lives in the digital sphere. While I’ve stopped and started multiples times, I’ve been running this particular blog for over a year and a half. I look up to the OGs of the blogosphere like Feral Creature who has been blogging for 10 years now. She recently published a post about being at a crossroads in her journey and it made me stop and think about my own path.

Life 101: An Open Letter to My High School Self

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.

Coachella Dreamin’

Right now I am the farthest possible from Coachella. Instead of soaking in music and sun in the California heat I am in brisk, windswept Toronto nursing the cold I woke up to this morning.

I’ve always wanted to go to California, specifically LA, since I was very young. The palm trees and laid back, unbuttoned attitude has always been alluring to me. Music has also been one of my loves since childhood so imagine how jelly I feel about not being at Coachella right now.

Oh well I guess. Maybe next year? But until then a girl can pretend. If I were there, this is an example of something I’d wear this weekend. A look with mix and match print-on-print and a bohemian, artisanal flair. Maybe we should all get into some fun festival season styles, close our eyes, and just daydream.

Lust for Life

Have you ever met someone who, upon just knowing them a few moments, you knew was incredibly special? Some people just have a little extra sunshine in them. This is the story of how I met an angel at the Starbucks drive-through.

All White

As February draws to a close I can’t help but notice the days getting warmer and longer. I’m starting to feel both my wardrobe and I slowly draw out of hibernation and I’m so excited to feel the sun’s rays on my skin.

Spring is that time to shed your layers and embrace bare skin. There’s something about an all white look that just feels so godly fresh and I love that. I love the modern, bohemian style of this look from Zara.The volume on the top is complimented by the wide legged pants culminating in a loose, relaxed silhouette.

Take a cue from the photo set below and rediscover a natural, clean aesthetic. Breathe in the fresh air. Find new paths.

Love,

Mirian

Day 1 of Toronto Fashion Week SS16

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. Read more
