New Christina

It looks like Christina Aguilera is upping her style anti and creating an edgier self! After she chopped off her locks in early November, the last few pictures I have seen of her, she has ditched her 50's glam.
Out today at Cecconi's restaurant in West Hollywood, she was sporting some amazing Christian Louboutin boots and a Union Jack McQueen clutch. I'm not loving the bob on her yet, but I am loving the clothes. What do you think of her new look?

I spent another lovely day in Toronto today. It was freezing cold and snowing all over the place but I still had fun! I think I finally have a good handle on the Toronto bus and subway system...however I have yet to attempt the streetcar adventure. I visited the Bata Shoe Museum, it was interesting but not worth the adult fee (go Thursday after 5 and admission is free). Next I hit the Eatons center, always great fun and then I went to the ROM to see the Vanity Fair exhibit which is worth a look.


This is a little black dress I tried on at H&M. Amazing texture and ruffly straps. for only $39.99!


The Bata shoe exhibit. I was interested in the pedestal showcase.


fun fact: high shoes like this were a legally mandated aspect of dress for prostitutes in many parts of Italy around the 12th century. An order by the Florentine Office of Decency in 1384 stipulated that prostitutes must wear platform footwear.



Fun fact: High heels were popular for both men and women. They were seen as a status symbol, those with high heels vould not do manual labour.

Finally Feels Like Christmas

Today was the first substantial snow fall of the season! I woke up with green grass and a lite snow which, in a matter of hours, turned into a winter wonderland of 6cm! After seeing a bunch of fender-benders and a few stuck cars I went home, grabbed the camera and ran out to snap some photos before it probably disappears tomorrow.





Wearing a purple coat I picked up in North Carolina in October and my new boots from last weeks shopping spree! I know they're for Christmas... I'll put them back in their box, I promise.

Homage to The Lady

I love Lady Gaga for her fearlessness and how she turns ordinary things like hair, newspaper print and disco balls into fearless barely-there fashion. I once read that she wears such little clothing while performing because her grandmother is almost blind and can only see light colours. The more skin Gaga shows, the better her grandmother can see her on TV. How true this is, is anyone's guess. According to Gaga on the Jay Leno show, she has been scantily clad for most of her years. She went to a Catholic school where she had to wear a uniforms and says she was always getting in trouble by the nuns for hiking her skirt up too high. However, these experiences and life lessons are what make us who we are....and I wouldn't change her! She has brought some freshness and originality to the celebrity music scene.

Here are some of her most notable looks...

Christmas Treats

I don't know about you, but I am the most picky person when it comes to presents. My friends and family usually find it impossible to buy me anything unless I have specifically said that I wanted it. That is why I love Christmas! Ever year my parents take me somewhere for a shopping spree and then pack all my purchases away for Christmas. I know it's not as much of a surprise as it used to be when I was a child, but at least I won't be returning anything. They know how much I love clothing so that is what I always get.
One of my amazing purchases were these Steve Madden pumps!! I love them so much! They are about a 4 inch heel with a hidden platform in the toe. I have a small obsession with Steve Madden shoes. I feel like he is designing just for me. I love most of his shoes...especially these silver snake skin print ones.





I haven't been wearing heels a lot in the last 2 years because of an accident I had. I was running in heels (big no no) while a guy friend was chasing me. He fell and took my legs out. I was on crutches for 8 weeks and 3 weeks of physio after that. These shoes still hurt my one foot a bit, but I love them too much to care :)
Wearing: Shoes: Steve Madden; top: Cleo; sweater: Alfred Sung; rolled up jeans.

Warming Up

Lately I just haven't been able to find the time to blog. I really hope that gets better. Here is a quick post before I have to get ready to go out again. I got my bangs trimmed today, so now at least now I can see :)




This trench was/is my moms, it was given to her as a present from my grandparents back in the 70's/80's. I don't know exactly when I just know I wasn't around at the time. Anyway, it is gorgeous. It is some type of leather, but I don't know if it is cow/lamb/pig skin and also has an amazingly soft fur collar! I wish you could feel how soft it is! Amazing.

Again, I do not support wearing new fur, but I will wear vintage fur.
