I want – I got x Eve Gravel Garden Party Challenge

This is the result of the Eve Gravel Garden Party Challenge style challenge. Eve Gravel sent me a Garden Party kit that included a dress from the SS15 collection and some addition styling items to add to the shoot. I chose the dress but everything else was a surprise. With this box of goodies I was to come up with a Garden Party themed photoshoot. The Red Hat dress is amazing and has some beautiful movement to it. At first I was like, I don’t have a garden! I thought about going to a park but it was cold and…

Live in Levi’s Campaign

Levi’s contacted me about participating in their Live in Levi’s campaign (#LiveinLevis). Some select bloggers/influencers use the hashtag and their social networks to share their style stories about Levi’s in their day to day lives. Levi’s also sent us one of their ICON pieces to style to go with our stories. I came across this photo of myself in grade 9 recently. I’m wearing a well loved Levi’s 501 jean jacket. The first thing that came to my mind was “Anita, you stupid asshole, why didn’t you keep that jacket. Think about how worn in and cool it would be…

i want: Alcoff Shirtdress by Trademark

I was creeping on a twitter conversation between a couple of friends who were talking favorably about this new American sportswear company based out of New York City called Trademark. I decided to check them out and I fell in love with the Alcoff Shirtdress. The Alcoff Shirtdress is a perfect metallic shirt dress that looks as if it was poured on. The design details are perfect minimalism for the bold lamé fabric. The straight relaxed fit makes this dress super easy to wear to the office or a party. Of course, all great dresses have pockets and the Alcoff…

i want: Crepe Gowns by Stella McCartney

Leave it to Stella McCartney make these great minimal colour blocked gowns. The design is simple and made showstopping via colour, silk and velvet Brigitte Colour-Block Crepe Gown Floor Length Stretch Crepe Dress is my favourite. Like I said about the Simone Rocha coat, I love perfect pink things. Colour-Block Crepe Gown images: mytheresa.com

i want: Stretch Silk-Blend Midi Dress by Miu Miu

I’m obsessing over the Stretch Silk-Blend Midi Dress since I saw this Miu Miu Fall – Winter 2013 – 2014 runway piece in the ad campaign. It just screams simple sex appeal to me. It’s the exposed shoulders that give this dress that kick I’m in love with. This silk blend beauty is €1,069 at mytheresa.com. images: style.com, mytheresa.com

i got: Cynthia Doll Dress by Collectif

A new clothing shop opened in my neighbourhood called Rosie the Rebel Retro Boutique. My fashion radar spotted it out of the corner of my eye on the way home one day. I jaywalked across Bloor to check it out. Fashion is a calling, literally at times. They carry Rockabilly, Psychobilly and Retro clothing. I soon realized this place would be really bad for my wallet after trying on this cherry dress and crinoline combo. The cherry dress didn’t win my heart this round, it was a 50s style dress from London based, Collectif. Established in the year 2000, Collectif…

i want: Ruched Tulle and Silk Dress by Christopher Kane

Now this is an exposed midriff dress I can get behind. It wouldn’t be safe for work but I’d wear it everywhere else. Thank god for Christopher Kane and PPR money. The dress is very vampy and it’s with reason, Christopher was inspired by Bela Lugosi and The Bride of Dracula. The dress is made out of black tulle and silk. The neckline, cuffs and waist are elasticized. It’s beautiful and lot cheaper than some of the Dolce & Gabbana dresses I tried on the other day. The Christopher Kane Ruched tulle and silk dress is available on net-a-porter for (le sigh)…

i want: Animal Print Dresses by Moschino Cheap and Chic

Fashion blogging friend, Nelia alerted me to this cool Moschino Cheap and Chic cat dress she put in a post on her blog called Shopping: Stylish Cat Lady Essentials. I immediately did some digging and found a couple other great animal dresses by Moschino Cheap and Chic. I want them all. They cost $495 and can be found at shopbop.com and net-a-porter.com. images: shopbop.com, net-a-porter.com

i want: Titanium Dress by Roland Mouret

A Roland Mouret dress makes a statement. The Titanium Dress is one of Roland’s signature silhouettes. The man knows how to make a dress. You can get this dress online at rolandmouret.com as they ship to Canada. It’s (gulp) $2041 but that prices included duties. images: rolandmouret.com
