If you know me then you know I am always on the consistent and never-ending hunt for the perfect t-shirt.. It really isn't as hard as it seems. But I know what you're thinking!? #THISQUEEN: Making a big deal out of the most littlest and most simplest thing - Well no, it's not just that simple. The perfect shirt involves the perfect cut, the perfect length, the perfect texture, the perfect sleeve length and angle.. So many variables and ideal variations go into the perfect shirt - So with that being said you can only imagine my disturbingly overwhelming thrill for #TSHIRTlife when I came across this little piece of heaven a la ACNE Studios - Which I wasn't really at all surprised at to know.. Leave it to them good ol' Sweeds to create that good good!! While scouring, searching and hunting I also found some other really dope t-shirts from T x Alexander Wang, Pencey Standard and I.R.O. - Happy T-Shirt hunting! Side note: If you have found what you feel is the perfect t-shirt then holler at me and let me know! Share the loveeeeee girl!
Your girls first song in a minute did not let up! Love this! Will definitely be banging this out when I DJ my next party #ButOfCourse
Sure you can talk about all the parties in Toronto.. But none really can compare to one quite like this... In my experience of the lavish events, the super exclusive parties, or whatever it may be in this city NOTHING compared to the five year anniversary of my girls, Toronto's star event planners Candice & Alison - It was a multi-level-experience kind of night at Toronto's Bell Lightbox a.k.a the central membrane of where Toronto's International Film Festival takes place... The night was filled with the best bubbly and the best company anyone could ask for #EverythingAGirlNeedsRight?.. For the evening, I wore #THAT gorgeous Versace Men's Spring/Summer 2014 studded runway jacket.. The girls (Candice & Alison) wore custom dresses designer by Toronto's boys from Greta Constantine - Everyone really turned it up for the event which was so nice to see.. It was definitely a #NoBASICzone.... Really I can't stress just how impressive this party was.. No one does it like Candice & Alison...

Ok EVERYONE and anyone that reads my blog and travels to any other city, country or whatever it may be that incurs obnoxious and almost fraud like charges onto your mobile bills just for using your phone while abroad.. Like you know that feeling when you want to make a call but you are in another country and so you do it then you see the end result and you're like #OHHELLNO... Well.. Honestly.. You will LOVE me for this.. Because.. STRUGGLE NO MORE!!... ENTER KNOWROAMING.. You guys.. This is no joke.. I have been using this service for months now and it has literally been one of the most amazing experiences about travelling.. I have travelled the world, Jamaica, Sweden, London, Milan, Paris and in the last few months I have been using KNOWROAMING i have NOT PAID ONE ROAMING CHARGE to my wireless provider... The best part is, I have probably used well over tens of thousands of dollars in data and talk time.. I mean, I upload more when I am abroad then when I am home #LIKEHELLO!!!

If you guys have been keeping up with my escapades over the last few weeks from London to Milan to THE CITY OF LIGHTS, I have been busy runway hopping and capturing all the moments with my new 41 megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020 #WINDOWSPHONE camera. Through thick and thin, it has been by my side, documenting every #OMG moment and sharing them literally the same moment as I #OMG lol...

I mean from supermarket to sports fanatic? I love it! After a runway show staged with a supermarket setting, the fall/winter 2014 campaign from Chanel also goes for the unexpected with images taken at a (very chic may I add) boxing ring. This seasons campaign features star miss thing, Cara Delevingne and rising star Binx Walton, of course photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. Both of the girls also happen to appear in Balmain’s fall ads.
You can only imagine how happy I was to see this! Young generation taking BALMAIN! How amazing does Kendall Jenner look in this runway look from Balmain's Fall/Winter 2014 runway collection?... Are you thinking what I am thinking? If you're thinking what I am thinking then we are both thinking that maybe next season we will be seeing alot more of Kendall Jenner for Balmain, maybe a runway show? Probably a runway show.. Maybe.. An appearance in next seasons campaign? Hmm... Who knows! All I know is that this girl looks good in Balmain!!

After the ready to wear shows is... The Haute Couture shows in Paris.. The Haute Couture shows are the pinnacle of fashion.. Going to an Haute Couture show isn't like going to Church, going to an Haute Couture show is like getting into a rocket ship and going to the MOON! It is other wordly and one of the most exquisite fashion experiences anyone who loves fashion could ever witness! With that said, you could only imagine my EXCITEMENT when Haute Couture week rolled around during my time in Paris and there I was at the ATELIER VERSACE, Haute Couture runway show.. With my Windows Phone in hand and invite clutched like nothing else, I jumped into my car and head over to the show with an insatiable excitement... Upon arriving the madness was already underway outside and on the inside, a beautiful purple-y/blue ambience filled the room, some sort of angelic, gothic-glam was amongst us.. I took my seat, and then it was show time.. One of my favourite Haute Couture shows, without a doubt!

The campaign features Rita in some of Cavalli's contemporary classics, leopard prints, wild patterns studded details and all else we love from Roberto Cavalli.. More pictures below!

So as you know last week I came back to Toronto to celebrate World Pride with my homies over at GAP for the official #STRUTwithGAP world pride party! From beginning to end the event was so much fun and it was really nice to meet a lot of readers and followers of the blog/social media. I had an amazing time talking fashion, sharing my GAP essentials a.k.a my 1969 'Always Skinny' jeans, spinning some super cute tunes and enjoying the Bacardi cocktails! It was just an overall great way to celebrate pride with a great brand and I am happy we could do it! Can't wait for next year!!!

Another one of my favourite menswear shows definitely had to be the Diesel Black/Gold Spring/Summer 2015 show. Being a big fan of Diesel Black/Gold I noticed it felt a little different from previous collections. A bit more sharp and a bit more dressy then regularly. Again being a fan of Diesel Black/Gold, only they could get me up after a crazy amazing night out with friends that early to catch the runway show! I loved it! Of course I had my Nokia Lumia 1020, 41MP Windows Phone on hand to capture some of my favourite looks from front row at the runway show! Here they are!!

Every season, the day after the highly coveted Versace Men's runway show the house holds a super private one on one viewing of the collection and all it's corresponding accessories! This is such a great opportunity because for the stylists, editors & etc. that attend, they get to get UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL with the details, craftsmanship and all that good stuff that goes into making runway magic! Of course, I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to get my hands touchin' and feelin' all up on that next season Versace... So, but of course, I grabbed me my good ol' 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone (because hunny when Versace calls and want's you to get the details.. You better come ready to #GETtheDETAILS..) and trotted over to Via Gesu 12, which is where the Versace offices/headquarters are which is actually also Gianni Versace's original apartment (soo cool right....) where I was greeted by a really amazing entrance and pre-re-see opportunity to walk the stairs he walked and get to know a bit about the beautiful building which the legendary Gianni Versace, called CASA!
