sweet, sweet summer.

well hello there fellow fashionista's and fashionist-er's ;)

i'm not sure about all of you........ but thank goodness i have air conditioning and a pool or i don't know if i could hold up in this heat wave that's taken over our city of Toronto. the only fashion statement one can make in this beyond-balmy weather is one that consists of a sexy swimsuit, flat sandals, a pair of sunnies and a straw fedora [mine in order would be from victoria's secret, aldo, urban outfitters and club monaco]. toss on a long and breezy maxi or a cute mini at night if you're going to brave the heat!

i'm still in summer school, and at least i'm studying fashion or i don't know how i could possibly give up tanning by the pool. i'm currently working on a trend board [for my history & trend forecasting course], and since we're in the midst of a sweltering summer, my inspiration is going to be beachwear! once it's all finished i'll post photos. i did my first major persuasion speech and...... for the girl who was previously semi-crippled by anxiety, but has now discovered a new-found confidence, got a 93%!! i was so happy after my speech and am delighted that my research and perseverence paid off :)

this week Christian Dior and Chanel have been showing their S/S 2011 pieces on the Paris runway, and both Blake Lively and Jessica Alba made appearances, sporting a dress by each designer at their respective shows:

Blake Lively shows off her refreshing fashion taste in cream Christian Dior [my absolute favorite part of the outfit is her cute little hair piece!], and then looks absolutely island-pretty in a pastel Chanel frock

Jessica Alba looks adorable in a pastel print Dior haute couture summer dress, and then beautifully pulls off a white Chanel dress with waist-cinching red belt, and stunning black lace booties

last but not least, i've got to give Nikki Reid, a la Twilight, props for this precious outfit: a loose fit floral dress, with a trendy black-studded cross-body bag, and purple suede heels...

lots of love,
sammy xx
