Army Green + Fur

Usually I find darker colors to be pretty boring and gloomy, especially when paired together.  But I thought that this army green top with gun metal silver beading detail on the shoulders, paired with this black fur vest actually looked quite lovely together. Most of you know I am usually in bright colored tops or bottoms (seen here, here, here and here), but today I was in no mood to put on those jewel tones, instead I wanted to try this darker side, and it seemed to go very nicely. What do you guys think? {Top, normally a dress – H&M; Fur Vest – Di Firenze; Pants & Shoes – Zara; Purse – Danier Leather; Watch – Michael Kors; Sunglasses – Tom Ford}

Stylesense 3rd Annual Stiletto Sprint 2011

Thursday was a very early morning for me, waking up at 4:00 am, and heading off to the Stylesense 3rd Annual Stiletto Spring at Vaughan Mills, just north of Toronto!  It was great seeing a familiar face, fellow Danier Leather colleague Natasha! By 7:30 am I had completed my first heat with a time of 10 seconds….which put me into the finals!  All I had to do was sprint 100 meters in 3 inch heels and I could potentially win $10,000 CASH!  Well sadly my dreams of winning $10,000 cash quickly went away as I saw number 077 cross the finish line.

Jewel Tones – Fall 2011

I am very excited to see that each year Fall keeps getting brighter and brighter. I hated the years when this season was dark and gloomy! Whether it is throwing a bright jewel tone colored purse over your shoulder, or being risky and wearing brightly colored pants or skirts, or wearing a bright colored top under your blazer, Fall has finally come to terms with color and not just blacks and browns!  Don’t hesitate to wear color this season! It will help with the dark and short days! 1. Jeffery Campbell Lita Velvet Bootie 2. Topshop Long Sleeve Sheer Blouse 3. Zara Color Block Clutch 4. Forever 21 Faceted Stretch Bracelet 5.

Stylesense Stiletto Sprint

This Thursday is the 3rd Annual Stylesense Stiletto Sprint, and I will be competing in it for $10,000 cash! It’s not just for the grand prize but for a great cause too, the Look Good Feel Better foundation. The Look Good Feel Better foundation is Canada’s only national charity that addresses the appearance related effects of all cancers affecting women! I am very happy to be participating in this event, and I am very nervous to sprint 100 m in 3-inch stilettos! Let’s just hope I don’t break my leg!
