Velvet Slip Dress

I’m riding the velvet wave with this velvet slip dress. It’s getting dangerous working at Topshop. There are always so many cute new items that it can be hard to control myself. And it’s my job to make them look good (I’m a visual merchandiser by day), so I pretty much fall victim to my own work. I already wore the dress to Vancouver Fashion …

Petite Friendly Favourites From London Fashion Week

Hey guys! I’m continuing my fashion week roundups with my petite friendly favourites from London Fashion Week (last week was New York). Though I still noticed a lot of feminine and ruffled pieces, the London shows had a bit more of an edge with more rock-inspired pieces.

How To Wear Ankle Boots (If You Are Petite)

I’ve dreaded typing these words, but I can’t deny it any longer. Fall is here. I am upset about my favourite season ending, especially since it was raining for half the summer.

Most fashion shows are more about showmanship than wearability, and I do enjoy avant-garde shows, but when looking runway photos from the major fashion weeks it’s also …

Stripes & Velvet

I hope you believe me, even though I’ve tried many trends this year (lace-up, cold shoulder, off the shoulder). But I swear I love them all. Same goes for velvet, which is huge even though fall just started. I love a good texture, and …

Los Angeles Travel Diary

Continuing on from last post, my Venice Beach & Santa Monica travel diary. We spent Saturday and Sunday in Los Angeles itself, or at least partially. If I understand correctly, Los Angeles is actually small but Los Angeles County is huge. It’s made up of a bunch of cities like Beverly Hills, Malibu, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. But you can still call them LA. …
