The Interior Design Show 2014 Toronto

I attended the Interior Design Show on Opening Night and it was such a great experience that I had to share! If you are a homeowner looking to upgrade, you will love my new series "Dress Up your Home"

I wanted to share some of the knowledge and tips that I've been getting while starting small renovations at home. My youtube channel is not changing, but I would like to expand on the type of Fashion I discuss so in that its not the same old hauls and lookbooks all year long. To keep it simple, remember this tip:
"The Difference between Delta Faucet at Home Depot and a Showroom, is like buying D&G vs Dolce & Gabbana" or "DKNY vs Donna Karan"

Buying Faucets, Fixtures and Furniture can be challenging if you don't know what to buy. It's easy to go to your local Home Depot or Big Box store, but this video is for you Divas that don't settle. High end Home Fashion is just as exciting as Luxury Clothing.

A New Year of Outfits

A New Year Means New Outfits. If you are on a budget like me, and don't want to crazy with the shopping, you remix the items you have in your closet. I post pic on Instagram everyday, and I am not ashamed to repeat an item. I just change it up. These are some of the outfits I've worn so far this year.
Outfit 1 beaded blazer that I've had for some time now, I just paired it with Wax Denim by Zara and Combat boots by Sam Edelman. My Tote is also Sam Edelman, I carry this bag a lot.
Outfit 2 
This amazing sheer top with Rosettes from BCBGs 2009 Resort Collection. I layered it on top of a long sleeve BCBG tshirt and paired it with American Apparel leggings and H& boots
I love Outfit 3 I'm wearing a blouse from Bedo Canada, faux leather pants from H&M, Vince Camuto booties and a Sailor Coat from Joe Fresh
Outfit 4 
A vintage leather pencil skirt from Danier with a crop top from Zara. My favorite part of the outfit is my Mimosa booties from Browns shoes
Outfit 5 
I took a sale dress that I found at H&M and cut it into a tank because I liked the panther on the front. Paired with this Necessary Blazer, vintage leather joggers and combat boots, I can take this outfit from my day job to an evening of drinks with friends.
Outfit 6
These long sleeve black t's from Smart Set come in handy for cold days and layering. I paired it with this pleated skirt from Bedo, and my Mimosa boots from Browns Shoes. The Necklace is from a sample sale, and the bag is Max Azria Collection BCBG
Outfit 7
This bomber Jacket from H&M had me at Hello. I love the print and I paired it with simple black leggings from American Apparel. The bag is Vince Camuto, the boots Jessica Simpson. Beanie is from EBay.
Outfit 8
Toronto's Ice Storm called for some serious gear to keep you warm so I pulled out this full length down jacket from Banana Republic. The warmest coat that I have and I nice dupe of the NorthFace. I added a BCBG matte studded belt to go with Sam Edelman combat boots.
Outfit 9
This is outfit shows the true girlie girl in me. The polka dots are so much fun and paired with my Boyfriend Jeans and combat boots I still feel dressy. Sweater and Jeans are H&M, boots and tote Sam Edelman
