Is Sexy More Important Than Beautiful?

Hello Darlings,  As I browsed the new arrivals section at the Holt Renfrew I came across a beautiful dress that stood out within a rack of “cool and hip” clothing. The dress just didn’t seem to belong in the midst of T by Alexander Wang tees and Rag & Bone pullovers. From the delicate silk sleeves that highlighted shoulders and a simple linen A-line form of the dress; in my eyes it was perfection! The dress was designed by Paul & Joe Sister which is a diffusion line of the eponymous French label. I’ve always adored the quirky and cheeky designs of the…

The Thrill of Life: Staying Curious

Hello Darlings, The jolt of energy and excitement that rushes through our body when we experience the unknown. It’s exhilarating to feel that alive  in a split second.

How Not To Jump To Conclusions

Hello Darlings, There’s a reason why they say to never judge a book by its cover but nonetheless we always do! On a random Thursday evening, my best friend and I browsed the new arrivals rack at Aritzia. For years the Canadian retailer has been my go-to for stylish basics and neutral additions. There’s something easy and effortless about all of their pieces. They come with no hassle,  just a beautiful fit. While browsing I spotted a piece that not only looked terrible on a hanger but I also wasn’t quite sure  as to what it was — maybe a dress,…
