Over the past year we’ve seen a drastic shift in our fashion choices, with comfort and ease being of the utmost importance when it comes to getting dressed in the morning.

I'm a Fashion Editor and These Are the 8 Spring Outfits I Dream About Daily

Let’s talk spring outfits: I know you’ve probably already begun buying light wash denim and floral dresses by now, and with post-lockdown life on the horizon, I thought I’d share a few note-worthy outfits that make a great case for being seen. Socially distanced events and brunches are slowly creeping back on the calendar, and my own excitement for going out again has boiled over in the form of spring outfit preparation. With the burden of layers behind us, it’s the prime season to really flex those sartorial muscles. Colorful knit separates in vibrant shades and charming bustier tops are a few of the styles we’ve been noticing on the Instagram fashion set–with high-impact prints making a big splash too. All of these trends look effortlessly cool and right on the money, and thanks in part to the outfits below, are sitting in my shopping cart right now. I’m sure

We’re In Our 20s, And Here’s Where We Shop The Most

Your 20s is one of the most pivotal life stages. It feels like we’re all just trying to survive and figure things out–whether you’re fresh out of college or simply looking to find out what you want from life. This uncertainty also translates majorly into the fashion choices we make in our 20s: at the age of 28 I’ve tried my fair share of experimental styles and trends, it would probably make your head spin. As I grow older, I’m still always fine-tuning and switching up my personal style.  Nearing ever so closer to the big 30, I’ve learned a lot about which places hit the sweet spot of being affordable, on-trend, and with great quality. As much as I’d love to splurge on the latest Prada bag or Cartier bracelet, the reality is I have student loans to tend to, which is why it shouldn’t surprise you that many

A White T-Shirt Is My Holy Grail of Basics–Here are The Styles I Wear The Most

Minimalism isn’t necessarily a term I’d use to describe my style, however, for all my love of dramatic trends I can never turn down quality basics. A steady arsenal of reliable wardrobe staples just makes getting dressed that much easier, and once I find ones that I love I make sure to stock up in multiples. Easily the basic I sartorially lean on the most is a simple white t-shirt. It’s a big part of my daily spring uniform of jeans and a blazer, but of course, it’s also handy for layering underneath the multitude of sweater vests and cardigans I own.

I get so many questions asking which white t-shirts rise above the others, and today, I’m laying out the brands and styles that have carved out a permanent place in my closet. While there are so many shapes and necklines to choose from–boxy to form-fitting, and v-neck to … Read the rest

I’m A Curvy Girl and These Jeans Will Hug You In All The Right Places

While online shopping is a welcomed convenience, it’s a fact that some things are just harder to buy without trying them in real life. Denim jeans certainly exist within that category. Add in the complexity of various silhouettes, cuts, and shapes, and the diversity of body types–jeans shopping suddenly feels more like a scientific endeavor. If you’re someone with a pear shape or just curvier on the bottom in general, there’s a slew of extra factors to consider just to find ones that fit.

As someone with a bigger butt and a smaller waist, it felt like a never-ending search before I found pairs that hugged my curves without feeling stifled. I’ve tried on more pairs of denim jeans than I’d like to admit, but now my denim collection is pretty robust thanks to constant rounds of trial and error. Of course, shopping in person maybe a little precarious these … Read the rest

Sid Neigum and Anti Social Running Club Join Forces To Support Toronto Restaurants

Just about every industry has felt the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and in Canada, one of the hardest hit has been food. On December 16, Restaurants Canada reported that since March 2020, 10,000 restaurants closed across Canada, while nearly 50 percent expect to permanently close if things don’t change. So, how to support Toronto restaurants while things remain locked down?

The fashion industry, too, has taken a toll, with many retailers closing, like Addition Elle, or facing bankruptcy, like Frank And Oak. For Toronto-based designer Sid Neigum, who cancelled his resort collection ahead of the fall, “it’s been rough.” But, he adds, “I’ve pivoted, as many restaurants have, by starting an online shop and selling direct-to-consumer. Now, this month, our revenue is higher for direct-to-consumer (D2C) than business-to-business (B2B), which is a first. It’s [about] rethinking how you have to work and adapt.”

I Rebuilt My Entire Underwear Collection–Here Are The Pairs I’m Buying

It’s sad to admit, but I truly neglected my underwear collection all 2020. With loungewear firmly dominating last year, all of my fancy dresses and pants were sort of shoved to the back of the closet, and suddenly intricate lingerie didn’t feel like much of a priority. But as we all know, good underwear is the workhorse of any wardrobe, and I’m looking to redeem myself here in 2021.

In the spirit of January’s unofficial motto of “new year, new me” I decided to do a full-on purge of my lingerie drawer, and rebuild my collection of panties from scratch. Fortunately, revamping was as simple as clicking over to Amazon, Nordstrom, and Target for a quick browse. If you’re like me, you have different underwear for different occasions; thongs and seamless styles to avoid visible panty lines, pretty panties to feel fancy, and cotton or full coverage briefs for when … Read the rest
