Word of the day: Peplum

The word that I am bringing up today is:


I have recently learned this term at my job. I didn't even know how to describe it in french. It is indeed a new vocabulary. The peplum are more a 50's inspiration. Coming up for this season so ladies be prepared to be dressed with a good peplum outfit wether it's a shirt, skirt or a dress.

Definition of the day

Bonjour everybody. Knowing that winter reappeard on the surface again, photoshoots sessions have been reduced. I decided to get more focused on definitions. I find it so important to know how to describe any piece of clothes that we wear. YES we love fashion BUT is it useful the fact that we should know how to describe them? For sure yes. LOVING fashion is one thing KNOWING fashion is another thing.

I will often post definitions for you to get more familiar aswell for myself.
Ready... , get set..., learn!

Ok so the word of the day is...


Like I always say I need to vary my fashion sections for my blog it's more fun!

It's mostly about fashion week

Some people proclaim to be fashionable wether they are or not. But at the end we all learn the same lesson.
After reviewing most of the trends on the podium, meaning on the runway during a whole fashion show, creativity grows when it comes to dressing up. You know what's new for the season comuing up, how to mix diverse colors, different patterns, how to dress up any type of bottom with any type of shirt.

After that, well it's all up to you on a daily basis. Attending fashion shows is always a great experience, because not only you meet a lot of people from this industry but also you learn more about the new and old styles!

Unfortunaly I am missing the Ottawa Fashion Week SS/2012. Months go by so fast that I didn't even realize it was time to get prepared for the next one.

This weekend is all about OFW (all infos on their page). Tonight and Saturday (respectively the 17th and the 18th of February) for 45$ and Sunday the 19th of February : 55$ 
And 95$ for the 3 days.

All I can say is enjoy!

How edgy do you want to go?

Getting dressed up egy/rock never gets out of style wether we like it or not.
Leather is part of the dressing including shoes. The number one color of course would be B-L-A-C-K.

Not shopping until when?

Ok so, I made a promise not to shop from January to April 2012. The reason is that I want to challenge myself and see if I am able not to go shopping and save money for more important investissement. But thing is the sales came up and it is coming to its end. Hard to resist when you see all these amazing outfits and colors around you!

Can I do it? I guess yes. It's all about mental process. I am not suggesting my readers to do the same. All I am saying is that if you can manage your money and if you know where to bargain then that's the best option. Saving your money but without depriving yourself either.

Question is: how long would I be able to hold on? I don't know. I guess I could buy but WAY LESS then before :p


Who never think about this?

Let's not lie, we've all dreamed of having a great closet like this one. The picture from above is called precisely : AN ORGANIZED CLOSET. Yes that's right. Going from colors order to outfits, accessories on top and shoes on the bottom part. This person might have taken time to place all of her clothes but when you think about it, at the end it's all worth it. 

No more losing time in the mornings before heading to work, meetings or school. If it takes you 1 hour to do all this, then fine but then it will only take you a minute to pick out an outfit. For those who are out of ideas to organize their own closet. Just take a look at that picture.


Snapshot from somewhere

Elegance and sophistication are the two words that comes up in mind...


Listen folks spring is going to make an appearance soon. It's time to shine and put on some good looking
leggings. Play with different prints, go for different contrasts, going cylan to fushia or neutral colors, laced, printed or
 plain ones. Be creative.

CelebrATE the moment!

My team mate, the Photographer!

More for this shoot. I ll just have to find a picture of those great employees from this Bakery called:

The French Baker

They were really kind to let us shoot in their bakery.

If you go through their website it well tell you all you need to know. That also includes a good description of their delicious pastries, breads, desserts and so much more. You would't hesitate to run to that bakery. It's downtown, no excuse ladies and gents!

Here are some more photos that I decided to edit with my phone this time (yes an Iphone). Some might be similar but they all look different with a little touch up!

A big thanx again to my team mate Mr.C who's photos are incredibly amazing here is the link to his website for more photos:
 And I wouldn't forget my dear model: Miss.A for posing for us

Much love
