My Neighbor Karlito

2015-02-20 at 20-19-11 Montreal, Canada

Hello fwiends! I wish you all a very happy TGIF and a raging weekend. I have escaped the frozen land I call home, and am currently in paradise. Yes, after all the complaining I’ve been doing about my impending doom in our North fucking Pole, I have finally made it to the sandy beaches of Miami. This little #OOTD was taken last weekend before going out to dinner, while I was still braving the cold. Let me tell you, a cape at -25°C, ya…not warm enough. Nonetheless I soldiered on, protected my Karlito, and walked this Saint-Laurent inspired number, 6 whole steps from the car into our favourite restaurant, Le Bemner. I know right..so brave. Now it’s time to enjoy this little vaca, get some sun, watch some Miyazaki films, and who knows, maybe even drive over to Disney world….To be continued… 2015-02-20 at 20-20-18 2015-02-20 at 20-28-12 2015-02-20 at 20-17-48 2015-02-20 at 20-17-07 2015-02-20 at 20-33-33 2015-02-20 at 20-30-55 2015-02-20 at 20-21-09 2015-02-20 at 20-29-08 2015-02-20 at 20-24-23 2015-02-20 at 20-19-25 Cute As A Bow

I finally had the occasion to sport one of my favourite looks from Alexander Wang’s Spring collection. I went a little overboard with this particular season from my favourite designer, and now pretty much own every piece I drooled over when presented on the runway last September. Such a fun take on branding, and not being so serious as far as the F word is concerned. F word being Fashion of course. Jeez a bunch of dirty mouths you must all have. Anyways more Wang Parental Advisory and pastels to be worn later on in the summer, but this is a great opening act. Now I’ve got a wedding to prep for, so g2g. 2014-05-10 at 10-06-51 2014-05-16 at 10-37-35 2014-05-10 at 10-14-05 2014-05-10 at 10-05-47 2014-05-10 at 10-12-59 2014-05-10 at 10-01-39 2014-05-10 at 10-00-37 2014-05-10 at 10-12-05        2014-05-10 at 10-11-00 2014-05-10 at 10-02-03 2014-05-10 at 10-10-43 2014-05-10 at 10-00-55 2014-05-16 at 10-35-48 2014-05-10 at 10-13-33 Outfit credits are a f***ing b***h to do

So as many of you may already know Canada is made up of 10 provinces, one of which is Quebec, where french is employed as a native tongue. I am French Canadian. This means I get ridiculed by the likes of television shows like “How I Met Your Mother” and have a nice french twang that the the French from France say they find charming then mock. It’s been hard for me you know…ok not really. After I caught on to this whole anglophone thing all was pie, AND I get to say I am bilingual, which apparently gets my some street cred in the professional world (yet to be experienced btw). Anyway, the capital of our great province, is unimaginatively named the same thing as the state itself, therefore last week I was in Quebec, Quebec visiting my family. I took advantage of this opportunity to showcase my francophone roots, pose next to some white and blue Fleur-de-lis flags, and hit up some souvenir stores for some prideful swag. That’s right all, I now own a T-shirt that says “J’men Calise!”. You curious?..Look it up! 2014-05-01 at 20-21-46 2014-05-01 at 20-18-16 2014-05-01 at 20-31-57 2014-05-01 at 20-31-13 2014-05-01 at 20-18-49 2014-05-01 at 20-28-34 2014-05-01 at 20-32-27 2014-04-25 at 18-07-44 2014-05-01 at 20-29-03 2014-05-01 at 20-23-54 2014-05-01 at 20-28-10 2014-05-01 at 20-32-59 C moié le boss

2014-02-12 at 21-01-56 New York Fashion Week/Oscar Recap

Happy Monday. Hope you had a lovely Oscar night-in as I did yesterday, and that all your favourite stars took home prizes…if you care about that sort of thing. Or, as in my case, you enjoyed the red carpet portion and were pleased with the stylists’ choice at the climax of this award season. It was ok, meh, but I say that every time. I don’t know about you, but If I were to attend the oscars, i would you know, try to look like a movie star, i don’t know why every year so many actual screen sirens don”t get the memo. I tune in every year knowing i’m setting myself up for disappointment expecting the met ball, but then there are always the lights that shine amidst this darkness. This year for me it was Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace (seriously what is in her water), Jennifer Garner in Oscar De La Renta (FRINGE!), and surprisingly enough Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture, (mostly because if you are going to wear anything at the Oscars, it should be Chanel Couture) though I preferred the fit of the dress on the runway. The only reason Ms Charlize Theron didn’t make my top three is well…because she’s Charlize Theron and looking that good IN ANYTHING and everything has no merit (same rule applies to Angelina Jolie), besides I like last year’s Dior better. There were other great moments from Margot Robbie, Portia De Rossi, and little Miss Lupita Nyong’o in Prada…At first I didn’t understand it, “why didn’t you save the Ralph Lauren cape for this!” is all I could angrily muster, as well as, “The fuck is up with the head band and the prom dress!”…and then I got it. Cinderella, a pretty good modernized interpretation might I add, and of course, how could I not adore it after that. Besides, mama loves herself some baby blue — speaking of- check out this last look from our final night in New York for Fashion Week! 2014-02-12 at 21-05-16 2014-02-12 at 21-10-05 2014-02-12 at 21-05-31 2014-02-12 at 20-58-36 2014-02-12 at 21-00-13 2014-02-20 at 09-43-52 2014-02-12 at 21-04-50 2014-02-12 at 21-00-32 2014-02-12 at 20-59-42 2014-02-12 at 21-09-45 2014-02-12 at 21-06-15 Why have sleeves in the first place? #fashioneditorsmademedoit
