the clothing show.

on this early autumn morning, I bundled up, put on my new TopShop boots, grabbed a delicious pumpkin spice latte, and made my way to The Clothing Show at Exhibition Park. the main source of my attendance for this shopping venture was that headmistress would have a booth set up!! the HM space was definitely my one-stop source of shopping happiness as well.

i have a great love for [owner/designer] Jillian Wood's feather and fur accessories. they're a definite must-have for any edgy/hippie styled girl [much like myself].

today i spoiled myself with both a fur accessory [the Crowsnest Pass Fur Cuff], along with a feather ring. now i am anxiously waiting for the mailman to call and say he's waiting downstairs with a package from Twisted Muse Boutique in Halifax -- owner and dear friend, Johanna Galipeau ordered me in a couple treats! said package shall contain two more headmistress pieces- the Edgar Lake Faux Fur Headband [top photo on model] and a feather pin to add (when I want to create a different look), the Flatrock Pin [below].

i suggest all of my blog-friends take a peek at this lovely site and let yourself indulge on some beautiful fur and feather finds for yourself!! fur is one of the biggest trends this autumn, so go on, check it out:

new york fashion week.

it's begun... the city of new york has been taken over by throngs of designers, photographers, models, reporters, celebrities and fashion-lovers alike. if only i were amongst this group.....ahh, if only. to see the beautiful creations by the likes of zac posen, charlotte ronson, michael kors and vera wang [to name a few] would be a dream come true.

i know i can always count on my style icon, Rachel Bilson, to pull out all the stops. first she pairs a flirty floral blouse with tough leather shorts and likely the most amazing pair of peep-toe suede booties i've ever laid eyes on. then she sweeps her hair back, and perfectly pulls off a cream and black fringed wool Chanel dress. the girl knows how to combine edgy and sophisticated better than anyone.
lastly, we've got the two jessica's... canadian supermodel Jessica Stam (currently my favorite model), and gossipgirl star Jessica Szhor (one of my personal favorite style twin's, who does boho-chic like a pro), sitting front row at the Rag & Bone show... i'm curious about two things: one, where can I possibly find these absolutely lust-worthy purple/grey/black/olive suede boots? and two, where did the post office lose my invite to sit front row with these two style mavens?

hippie chic.

can we talk about how absolutely amazing drew barrymore has been looking these days?
not only has she been wearing her hair uber lowkey, what with the dark roots/lighter ends combination, it's also wavy and free flowing... then, on top of that, her style has been spot on! she has been killing the red carpet as of late [promoting her upcoming film, Go The Distance, with real life bf Justin Long], showcasing her edgy style.

i'm loving that she is looking super glam, yet always gives off a certain bohemian je'ne se quoi with all of her outfits.
if i had a choice, at this very moment, she is the celeb whose closet i would most certainly raid.
