It's that time of year again! Your company is hosting a Christmas party, you have a black tie fundraiser event, your girlfriend wants to be wined and dined on New Years Eve... and you have NO idea what to wear. Putting together occasion specific and appropriate outfits is difficult - trying to sort out the difference between business formal, business casual, formal, black-tie, casual, etc. is a lot to wrap your head around, especially for those of us who do not fall into the 'fashion savvy' category.Read More

Thursday is one of my favourite days of the week for a few reasons... firstly, it is a great day to get together with friends after work because it isn't as busy as Friday but still has a good vibe, secondly, it is Friday eve, thirdly, Spotify has throwback playlists, and fourthly, it is the most stylish day of the week. Ok, I made the last one up, every day of the week is the most stylish, but the rest are cold, hard facts. :)Read More

Casual style is usually one of three things - 1) something guys don't put much thought into (oh, it's Saturday, I think I'll just wear my workout gear all day) 2) have no idea how to achieve or 3) is so perfectly put together it looks effortless. Obviously you should be trying to achieve the third. It can be difficult to put together a casual look that looks good but doesn't look like you're trying to hard - this is one of the most common style questions I receive.Read More
So, turns out Chicago 110% lives up to its hype. WOW, what a cool city! Not only does it have a unique vibe, similar to that of NYC, it is beautiful, friendly, diverse, trendy and exceptionally CLEAN! One of my favourite activities I got to experience while in the city was the architectural boat tour. I am not normally one for tours, or anything touristy for that matter, but this one was exceptional - you take a boat through the rivers of downtown Chicago while your charismatic and intelligent guide tells you all about the different buildings. It was pretty cool.Read More
I cannot wait to scope out the shopping districts, the food scene and indulge in some uniquely crafted cocktails. I've been receiving lists of 'must dos' from some of my friends and every single one of them has ensured me that I am going to absolutely love the Chicago vibe. Underground supper clubs, speakeasies, unique coffee shops, juice bars, shopping, street style, SOUL CYCLE and live music equate to a personal heaven for me.Read More
