So, I walked into Addition Elle before I left for New York in order to grab a white t-shirt (to adorn it with faux fur for a fashion week outfit, obviously.) My friend MJ (who works there) immediately showed me these pajama pants and this bralette and was like, “WEAR THESE IN NEW YORK. AS CLOTHING.” Read More
I’m going to toot my own horn here and say that this shirt was the best thing about NYFW (I’m joking. Not really.) It’s a SHIRT with my own FACE ON IT. It’s perfect for someone as narcissistic as me and other than the wonky shoulder making my face look like something out of The Chrysalids, I love it a whole bunch.
This was the… second last day of my New York trip? It was the day of the Addition Elle holiday collection runway show which was, as expected, really good. A lot of the lingerie is already in stores (like the Ashley Graham collection). I happen to work at Addition Elle and I see the stuff on hangers basically every day, so it was really cool to see it walk down the runway on an actual human.
Skirt – Addition Elle (how appropriate) (it’s on mega sale and it runs very large, FYI!)

Do you ever feel an outfit so much that you just need to include like 14 photos of it in a blog post? Sorry not sorry, friends.
These culottes belong to Jessica, my NYFW travel buddy and good friend. As soon as I put them on I went online and bought a pair for myself. Probably not very practical for the upcoming winter, but whatever. Also, I bought this top from Old Navy?? Nine times out of ten when I see someone on the street and I ask them where they got a piece of clothing, they’ll say Old Navy. Which is so bizarre to me because when I think ‘Old Navy’ I have terrible flashbacks of my chubby 11 year old self trying to fit into their neon windbreakers or baby blue pullovers. So I figured, what better location to visit for the first time in 15 years than the one in New York City? They genuinely have some really cute stuff (that goes up to size XXL, hallelujah,) and I’m looking forward to seeing what the Toronto location has to offer.
P.S: I now have a partnership with ShopStyle, which means if you click on the link to the piece of clothing, I get DOLLA DOLLA BILLS YAS STACKS ON DECK, and if you buy it through the link I get money as well. Just wanted to be totally transparent!

HAHA HEY FROM NEW YORK. AGAIN. Do I even live in Toronto anymore? Whatever. I love it here.
The past few days have been so fun- lots of fashion shows and events (I’ll do some posts on everything soon. Right now ya just get some outfits.) I decided to take advantage of this NIFTY LIL POSTER in front of Chelsea Market for an outfit backdrop. This shirt has the Toronto Blue Jays logo on it and I actually saw several people wearing Blue Jays jerseys on the street throughout the day. Because they made it into the playoffs. Or the Word Series. Baseball. Sports. Okay. SO I’d make eye contact and smile and do some elaborate shirt pointing, but they’d all just ignore me or look at me like I was an idiot?? Americans are so weird. Here I am just trying to bond with strangers over sports and apparel and our shared love of my city. I HOPE YOU GUYS LIKE IT BETTER THAN THESE NEW YORKERS.
