Happy 2014 all! I don’t know about you but for me Kenzo has always been synonymous with my childhood. Wearing my hot pink floral leggings at the age of 7, never did I think one day my favorite brand would be worn by hip hop moguls. When Humberto Leon and Carol Lim took over creatively in 2012, pieces that felt part of a pre-tween renaissance started introducing themselves to my closet and have been steadily checking-in to the Chateau Claude Walk-In ever since. Clouds and tigers and eyes, oh my! Every animal and symbol superimposed with their famous logo has felt dope and fresh, and has become my go-to to add some funk to an outfit. Mixing their evil eye new era cap with a floral overall dress from Rihanna’s river island collection was the perfect way to make a childhood throwback current, comfortable, and simply fucking playful.

I have a guilty conscience
I’m horribly pale. Having finally made to it miami after braving the storm in my great native land I could not wait to see my old buddy sun…I hope you understand my frustration when I tell you it has now been raining for 5 days, since we arrived in the “miami heat”. This is bullshit. I have been fighting my natural skin tone for as long as I can remember, from spray tans to tanning oil I always come fully prepared to have that J.LO glow, well not this time. I am embracing the white. It is my favourite colour, or lack there of technically speaking. This is me world!…and It doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would…might have something to do with the Vintage Chanel.
This past month I had the chance to attend the Dom Perignon Louis-Vuitton holiday event at their Montreal boutique. The evening was to showcase some of their fine horlogerie pieces but I was lured into attending with the prospect that I would have the chance to customize my own bag, and surely enough this was fact not fictitious bait. Though this service is offered at the larger stores it was a one night only ordeal at our tiny location, and I wasn’t going to miss it. First step was to choose the model followed by the exterior and interior leathers, hardware, and finally had the choice to add your initials inside the tote. The bags are beautiful and rival the luxury and price of a Birkin. The order and creation process takes about five months before you can finally lay a hand on your own very own Louis offspring. I’m ready to adopt… Marant for HM
Living in Canada there are many downsides that often outweigh the positive of living in a country with a great healthcare system and an awesome french community (yes, I am french Canadian). Let It Snow, a jaunty Christmas tune, has never been so painful and frustrating to listen to, as when stuck in an airpot terminal trying to get home with your flight having been delayed DUE TO WEATHER. Let me tell you, snow and I are not on great terms this holiday season, and we may never…ever…ever, be getting back together. The bitch really pissed me off. I digress we gave up the airport scene and opted to stay the night in Toronto where our flight connection was on our way to Kingston, my fiancé’s hometown. We got a little crash pad at the Drake hotel, which you should all go to as it is terrific, and had ourselves a merry and boozy little holiday evening with our friends who were in the city. I guess it is true what they say about it not being about the destination, it is totally about getting drunk with your friends on the journey there. In case you were wondering we ended up braving the weather and driving to Kingston from Toronto…our original flight continues to be delayed…
“Welcome to the O.N bitch!”
