It was totally warm enough for bare legs in Toronto yesterday but I still felt the need to bust out my Russian princess hat. And my wrinkly-as-heck skirt.
When I saw this hat on the asos website I immediately knew I needed it even though it doesn’t really fit my gigantic head. I owed it to the people on the Old Country. (I am actually Russian- I’m named Alexandra, after the Russian Queen.)
Also I wasn’t wearing underpants and it was really windy on my roof so you’re welcome, Yonge Street.
Hat, Coat and Shoes- asos
Before I say anything else can I just point out my BOMB ASS Photoshop skills in that last photo? I’m embarrassed for myself but I put glitter on my hair and it looked like dandruff in the photos so I decided I needed a bit of PHOTOSHOP MAGIC~~ (I don’t know how to use Photoshop.)
I was going for a Hayley Elsaesser at Toronto Fashion Week vibe, with the glitter hair, and I think I deserve an A for effort.
Coat, Skirt: asos

I’m a sucker for designer/retail store collabs. I LOVE Ashish and I wanted this top for ages but I wouldn’t let myself spend the money. Then while I was in New York with my friends I guess I was in a “I’m on vacation and I can splurge” mood, so I picked it up.
This skirt was also an amazing purchase- I got it for $5 at Primark when I was in England. I suppose it makes up for the price of the t-shirt? Seriously though, petition for Primark to come to Canada. It’s the best.
Top- Ashish x Topshop
Boots- New Look
Well. I woke up at 4am, waited in line for 5 hours, and all that was left of the Alexander Wang x H&M release was this top and a couple beach towels. HEARTBROKEN. I’m perusing eBay as we speak.
It’s still a nice top, though. It’s a size medium and it fits me fine, since everything in this collection is quite oversized. I thought it would be cute paired with some pastel sweats and a cap.
Shirt- Alexander Wang x H&M
