.love .love .rachel .rachel .roy


To have this option is the epitome of function and fashion at it's best.
Not to be picky, though, I'd prefer a strapless option instead with the style of this dress. Otherwise, HOT!
Cow print? No thanks.
Cow print trench in tan and brown? Sure.
Convertible cow print trench in tan and brown with 2 optional cropped lengths? Yes, please!
I never thought I'd see a combo like this look chic, but I reeeeeaaalllly want it!


So how do we make it from warm, to cool, to cold, to freezing? Shearling and leather perhaps.
This design with the immensely oversized collar is a winner.
Not a fan of shearling and once again... WANT!


You can usually foresee the kinds of styles that come back around during the Fall/Winter seasons. I'm quite pleased with these ones that are simply gorgeous!

What's so great to do on a free evening with a great friend? Eat sushi! Among various other things, of course (including perusing and ultimately giving into the makeup section at Shopper's Drugmart *grrrrr!).

Some things I've noticed eating at many a sushi joints in my lifetime thus far:

1. Soy Sauce dishes should be slightly bigger and/or deeper to avoid spillage or sprayage after droppage.

2. When things like "Dragon Roll" or "Spider Roll" are on the menu, and furthermore arrive looking just like such... expect someone to play with their food. It's almost provoking it, c'mon!

3. Do NOT wear white. If you do, you are either a) brave b) dumb c) both d) a profesh on lunch e) hate that shirt.. or f) wearing someone else's shirt.

4. "All You Can Eat" doesn't mean you should do that. You risk losing all self respect and confidence upon exiting those doors. Sad but true.

5. Red Bean is officially the most underrated and misunderstood ice cream flavours I've come across in my life. No, it's NOT a can of beans dumped onto plain ice cream... you'd hafto be a retárd to consider that one.

6. Be nice to me, or I'll secretly switch that delicious Green Tea scoop with a wad of wasabi without your knowing. Teehee!

P.S. I'm not wearing white. It's peach. Sooooo doesn't count!

I am the walrus, coo coo kachoo!

so long 9 to 5

As Fall slowly beings to rear it's ugly pretty head, my time working 9-5 is coming to an end and back to the books I go! Not only am I looking forward to it (education rocks!), but I'm going to bring my cam with me and I'll have some more free time to explore my interests. I'm excited to share this on my blog along with anything else I may discover along the way. To be honest, I'd rather be working away at my career right now and loving every minute... but it's a process and the ride is sure to be fun!

Like a Goddess

So, lucky me I get to end my summer off nicely with a trip to Austin, Texas for my cousin's Bat Mitzvah. Unlucky me? I'm not interested in the dressed I have hanging in my closet... not to mention it's boiling hot there this time of year (which ultimately becomes my own sales pitch to myself). My find? A One Shouldered Goddess Dress on the cheap from F21. It's loose yet flattering at the same time, feminine and fitting. The mauve colour is so beautiful. I'll most likely pair it with my nude heels.

Hope everyone is making the most of these next couple weeks! xo

Summer lovin...


...happened so fast. How can it almost be over already? Is it just me, or is there a slight sense of Fall in the night air now? As much as I'm a summer person at heart and could probably move down south without blinking, I must say Fall is a great time of the year. Not because my birthday just so happens to be during the season, but esthetically its probably the most gorgeous one. The natural colours that mother nature itself, the coolness and breezes of the outdoors contrasted by warm indoors, the smell of herbs and spices, cinnamon and hot cocoa, pumpkin pie and potpourri and not to mention fall fashion. Before we get into that, though, I still want to enjoy what is left of this crazy summer of love.

iamsupercarla featurette

Thanks to iamsupercarla for featuring my look as part of her corporate chic post on her blog! Dig all of those looks and totally agree on strict office dress codes. People need to live a little and either be imaginative or hire a stylist. You can still adhere to a strict dress code and be fashionable, too... not to mention, to hell with seasonal pieces and colours. Dress for yourself, the occasion and more importantly, the weather.
