I am sooo excited to announce that I am working with PUMA on helping them launch their dope a** new PUMA FIERCE sneakers AND GURLLLLLL you already know before I even saw the shoe I was already sold by the NAME 😭 😂 😭 😂 😭 !!!!!! Aside from the fact that these kicks are very stylish (I love how clean and slim the fit of them is) they are actually super comfortable and I've been wearing them non stop since I got my feet in them!! I am so excited to share that from today onwards I will be rocking my favorite PUMA sneakers around Toronto AND even more exciting I have teamed up with PUMA to give away a crazy PUMA prize pack to one lucky reader here in Toronto.. Those details will be announced in the coming weeks but meanwhile stay tuned while I show you some of my favorite new PUMA sneakers as well as just how apparently muscular and hand-stand-able I JUST AM LOL 😂 😂 😂 😂!! I seriously had so much fun shooting this look because I got to go back to the kid in me and just be free and run around, be crazy and just not give A!!!! If you know me then you know how very rarely I think I have ever showed this more sporty side of me and I love it... It's really liberating to just run wild and free sometimes... This is my FIERCE!

A Fashionable Stay @ The Ritz Carlton Toronto #RCMemories

It's always so crazy to me how fast things go by.. It's April and I am here like wow did Toronto Fashion Week already come and go that quickly? Flashing back at it all, amidst the shows, the parties, oh the parties, the events and all was one thing that always makes my fashion week just that much more.. That one thing is, my stay at our Toronto Ritz Carlton.

This season was nothing short of amazing.. From the warm welcome I got once I entered the hotel to the absolutely ideal view of the tents of Fashion Week JUST so I could see when all the photographers were outside LOL #kidding. That from the beautiful room to... may.. I say... one of the most delicious dining experiences I have had in the city in a while which I will be sharing in another post very very soon!!!!!! Stay tuned :):)

I know you've probably seen some posts about this before but I have always had a passion for music. I taught myself how to create (not on a professional level yet!) my own sounds.. I am a firm believer in diving into what your heart wants so I thought I would give it a try.. I started doing it a long time ago, nearly 10 years ago.. It's actually how I made the name "Jay Strut" - "Jay Strut" was to be my stage name and I was suppose to pursue this dream of being a performer.. Although I put it on the side lines as long as I have I would rather be late to the show than not show up (lol).. So.. Here we are and I would love to share a song I recently sing on, wrote and produced on my little computer (I use garageband, use the keyboard as notes and sing into my apple headset lol..I have yet to go to a studio!!).. When I tell people I make music they think it's a joke, or a funny caricature of music but I personally do not think it is and I hope you can give me a couple minutes of your time and check it out :)

Your Love Is Fadin' @ChanelOfficial

Jacket - CHANEL

It's funny how clothes change moods... How I can feel one way in one look and another way in another.. Take this jacket for example, this beautiful Chanel coat from one of the recent collections just had me feeling on some sort of royal level! The beautiful embellishment, the workmanship the luxurious and rich colour and texture of the coat... Chanel details never cease to amaze me and continuously, continue to inspire and seduce me with their almost magic like ways...

Jacket - Topshop / Bag - Chanel / Pants - Paige / Shoes - Aldo

I never expected to do it.. It just literally kinda happened.. If you don’t know what I am talking about we might have to reconsider our relationship [kidding!] - It’s the Turtle Neck.. Hello!?!?!?.. ON The conversation of trying different things this season [in regards to my personal style of course], I think this is the first time that I have ever worn a turtleneck lol! And the irony of it all is that I loved every second! I am liking the idea of covering up more and more.. Wearing different necklines paired with other things that I would normally wear like for instance, a bomber jacket.. I know it sounds like a basic conversation but for someone who is so stuck in their ways of their own style [a.k.a me] I find doing things like this quite exhilarating MMKAY! So let me live ok LET ME LIIVEEE! Also.. How cute is this gorgeous Chanel Boy Bag, the colour is so rich I just can't stop staring at it... ALSO, clearly I have a sick addiction to these Aldo boots (I never really take them off for my more dressier looks).. So sad they are out of season now, I have a back-up pair but might need a couple more for life lol!!

Trying To Blend In

Sweater - COS / Bag - CHANEL / Pants - IRO / Shoes - ALDO / Rings - SWAROVSKI

Fashion Week has been quite interesting for me.. The main reason is because this week I have totally gone against the grain of what I normally wear and have been wearing completely 'different' things.. Almost 'Trying To Blend IN' if you will... I wore things I don't normally wear like tops that cover up my chest, light coloured this and that, like this absolutely cozy and beautiful sweater from COS' Spring/Summer 2016 collection... Needless to say I am quite impressed by how comfortable I was trying these new styles. However I think what makes me me, is that I DO NOT blend in... I am not like the other bloggers in my city that all have the same style of content or dress for everyday.. I am not every day.. Even in these simple pieces, realistically a sweater and jeans, as Beyonce would say "I SLAY" - Yes you might think I am crazy for saying this but I genuinely think it's important to uplift yourself.. Seriously! And to not be afraid to be proud of your self, your unique-ness and most of all I think people should give themselves a moment here and there to brag about themselves once in a while and share not only why they are thankful but why they feel deep down inside they are their best, or, simply, THE best ;)... I always say, I wish I had the confidence I do now in high school!! GURRRRLLLL!!

Backstage with @Swarovski at the @JennTorosian & @HelderDiego Shows

As the official jewellery sponsor for Toronto Fashion Week Swarovski hooked up designers with some of their key pieces to show along side the wicked clothing that made way down the runway. Two stand outs for me this season were both Helder Diego and Jennifer Torosian. The designers adorned their collections with some fierce as heck Swarovski pieces not only from their classic collection but also from their exclusive designer collaboration like that sick Jean Paul Gaultier necklace on the model from the Helder Diego show!! Here are a couple of my favourite looks


Jacket - Topshop / Jewels - Swarovski / Bag - Hermes / Shoes - Aldo

Toronto Fashion Week has been nothing short of eventful!!!! Every day there has been a new amazing experience!! It's funny because this season it feels a bit more intimate.. A little less clustered then previous seasons!?!?.. I don't know what it is but I am loving the vibe.. There is a chic and sexy energy in the city when fashion week comes around and I love to be part of it... ANYWAYS back to the fashion LOL or whatever this is.. Casual fashion!? LOL... This is probably one of my favourite casual looks I've worn in a very long time outside of my normal style!! I can finally say that I think I've found my personal aesthetic.. Although I do have a uniform I have always tried to mix and match other pieces to fit the uniform aesthetic and I found I was always questioning it but now I think we are ALL CLEAR!!!
