Don’t you feel that sometimes that we all tend to want to people in very defined categories, just because it seems easier for us to understand them? You know what I am referring to:  you are either only a democrat or liberal, religious or atheist, you either love rock or r&B, you’re either good or bad, and so on. There are so many categories that we want to put people in, but I think we are all such complex and interesting beings. This also applies when it comes to our sense of fashion and style. It’s funny how you should only be either preppy, or street inspired, or minimalistic, etc.
I can never put myself into any of those groups. The only group I can place myself in is eclectic. I love (almost) all styles and trends. I wear all of the ones I feel comfortable in. I love pushing myself out of my  own comfort zone. It may sound funny, but I am not very comfortable in flats or very low heels. And since I have been experiencing some foot pain as of lately (and am being told to cut back on wearing heels, especially high heels) I have been experimenting more and more with flat or low heel shoes.

 So far I am most comfortable in some sneakers and ankle booties. Finding a flat shoe that I would be comfortable in (read feel dressed up and feminine) is turning out to be hard. I also have a hard time paying big $$ for flat shoes, eheehhe. Silly right? What should a heel height have to do with the cost you’re willing to pay? So just recently I found a $7 pair of burgundy loafers in a Value Village. I was ready to shell out that kind of money, no problem. They are very interesting and possibly even more so, because I love Gucci, and Gucci has brought back the loafer shoes into fashion over the last couple of seasons. Maybe that’s why I liked them eheheh. I’m still testing them, and they don’t feel very natural to me just yet, but we all need to get out of our comfort zones from time to time and test out new waters (or trends and styles).

Today's outfit is definitely eclectic. You will either love it or hate it. But I felt like wearing it that day. Is this going to be one of those looks you look at few years later and think to yourself: what was I thinking? But who cares! You tested something different and one time maybe you failed, but other times you blew it out of the water! So dare to experiment. At least fashion makes that easy to do.

So what are the trends that you don’t date try on? What has been one thing you wish you could wear but can’t get yourself to do it? What would it take for you to push yourself out of your comfort zone and go with it? Love hearing from you.

Ciao!

How to Make Your Coat Warmer for Those Ice Cold Days

Don’ t you find that sometimes in the winter even some of your favourite or even warmest coats are just not warm enough? The wind gets through, or they are too wide on your body to keep you snug and warm? Yes, you could wear puffer jackets but I gotta admit I’m not a fan of those. They usually make me look like a column with no shape. Actually, I do have a cylinder shape but that’s not necessarily a look I like to go for.  The oversized puffers are not warm enough for me because they are just too wide. I need my coat to be closer to the body to feel warm.

You may wonder why I’m talking about this now. Well, to be honest, I forgot about these pictures I took a month ago. They didn’t come out great so I wasn’t sure if I were going to use them or not, then I completely forgot about them. And for those of us living in Canada or even north USA, we may still brace for some cold harsh winter weather, despite the deceivingly mild spring like weather these last few days. And even if we are lucky not to get any more bad weather, you may keep this idea for next winter.

Usually in the winter we tend to layer our under layers. It creates fun and interesting outfits. But when it comes to coats, we tend to wear them as is. Last season you could spot a lot of looks at the fashion weeks with women wearing leather jackets under their trench coats and so on. I’m not sure about you, but none of my sleeves of my coats or my trenches are wide enough to accommodate for a layer of a leather even denim jacket underneath.
What I opt for is layering vests, be it faux fur, real fur or any other winter texture, over your regular coat. It doesn’t even need to be a neutral or single colour coat. You can layer vests on top of colourful coats. In fact it may create for an even more interesting look. We spend our winters mostly in coats so why not make them a conversation piece and your main outfit? You will be surprised how much warmer your coat will feel. It won’ just look more fun.

Ciao!

How to Wear Fur Coat Every Day

How many of you own fur coats? Whether you got them at a vintage store, inherited from your mom or just bought a new one, do you get to wear it often? They don’t come cheap so would it not be good to get the bang for your buck? (Let me translate this for all of you non-Canadian readers: Wouldn’t you like to get most for your money? Hehehe) Do you find yourself only wearing it to big events such as New Years, weddings or some gala? I find that in Canada, being that we have a more casual style, women don’t wear their fur coats on a daily basis. There is certainly also a negative stigma in Canada associated with wearing fur, unlike Europe, but I know way too many women who own a fur coat but don’t wear it, simply because they too believe it’s meant only for special occasions.
Fur jackets are much easier to make more casual, but what to do if you own an actual full length coat? Here’s a simple answer. Why not treat it just the same as you would any other coat in your closet? Why not treat it actually just the same as you do your black coat or your parka? (Yes most people own and mostly wear a black coat or a winter parka). What is amazing about fur coats is that they are perfect for special occasions but they blend so perfectly in even the most casual of outfits. Just think of that New Years scene from Sex & the City first movie (yes, this is for all of you SATC fans!) when Carrie throws on her fur coat over her pyjamas and runs to Miranda’s house in the snow blizzard. How unexpectedly fun was that “outfit”? Yes, I know what you’re gonna say. She wore pearl necklaces too and we, mere mortals, don’t normally sleep with pearl necklaces around our neck. But the point is that one amazing fur coat can instantly make even the most casual of outfits more dressed up.

My coat is a vintage one. The thing with vintage coats is that you have to make sure they fit you well so that you don’t look like your great aunt or like you went back in time to the 80s. You want to steer towards cleaner lines and avoid big shoulders.  It will not be worth the money to have the shoulders fixed, so make sure they are right from the start. Today I’m wearing my vintage fur coat with my boyfriend jeans (they are not so boyfriendy loose any more with my winter weight, it actually took some effort to pull them up heheeh), my Harvard sweatshirt (yes I know I’m a touristy tourist having bought this sweatshirt, but to be honest I wanted a souvenir from my Boston trip and had wanted a burgundy hooded sweatshirt and found this one, so in short: two birds with one stone) and my Forever 21 sneakers. Of couse, fishnet stockings are always a fun element of surprise.
Are you even more casual then this? Well, good thing is that fashion today is crazy and more forgiving than ever. So if you feel like wearing your sweatpants (make sure they are your size not actually those sloppy looking ones you stole from your man), you can still top that outfit off with a fur coat.

I don’t suggest however wearing a fur coat to a club. You will have to leave it in a coatcheck. And do you feel safe leaving it there? I sure don’t. Try doing a head wrap for a fun pairing and an interesting look. Check out my Instagram page for more inspiration.

So, to summarize, the only place I would not wear a fur coat to is a club. Otherwise, the sky is the limit. So ladies, pull out your fur coats and enjoy them! And thank you for sticking till the end of this post and reading through all of my run on sentences. I greatly appreciate your patience J
