I couldn’t go to NYC for fashion week and not record a little youtube video for you all, so click the last photo to watch my entire trip in summary. Also, some of you didn’t even know that I made YouTube videos- well heck yea I do, and I would love it if you would subscribe so you’d know when I upload new videos.

The third day of nyfw was probably the craziest and most busy of them all, I was invited to three beautiful shows in one day; my favourite of them being Jill Stuart SS15 because the collection literally spoke to me on every element. There’s two looks in this post because I went glamazon on NYC and changed outfits halfway through the day. It just has to happen sometimes guys, I swear, I’m ashamed at myself.
From now on you’ll be getting loads of London posts. Mua-ha-ha. So much goodness to come your way. Tu es prête? (Hint hint, nudge nudge).

Introducing… one of the coolest collaborations I’ve done- ever!
GARAGE is a brand that needs no introduction if you live in Canada, but if you’re not from Oh-Canada, then let me just start off with the fact that GARAGE was my j-a-m when I was in middle and high school. Every shopping centre in Ontario pretty much has a GARAGE store, and my friends and I would spend hours in their changing rooms trying on clothes. It’s pretty much home.
Do you have any idea how weird/amazing/exhilarating/unreal it felt to walk through the eaton centre (most popular mall in Toronto) and see my photos and name on the storefront display of the very same store I spent my entire adolescence? I couldn’t help but smile like a crazy person and just stand there in the middle of the mall, in awe and confusion at how this has come to be whilst people walked around me, confused at why I was taking selfies with a store display.

I knew it was coming, this collaboration has been in the works for months, but it never feels real until I can see it for myself. My beautiful and talented friend Nina Gudz shot these photos of me last month in London around East London and the riverside on a chilly but surprisingly sunny day. There’s nothing better than feeling comfortable in your style and clothing, and these photos I hope provoke those exact feelings of “chill”.

I’m holding a bts photo challenge contest with GARAGE, whereby if you upload a photo to instagram or twitter of your most laid-back, chill outfit with the #GARAGExCHILL you can win lots of fun prizes (full details here). I know you wear sweat pants, don’t even lie to me. If you live in any city with a GARAGE store, drop by your local mall and check out my printed face, it’s not something you see every day. It’ll make me mama happy.

The comfort zone | nyfw day two.

When I saw this dress on the racks at my shoot with Elle Girl in Moscow, I envisioned Paris fashion week and all the chic street style that comes along with it. Paris fashion week is not in my plans, so NYC had to do! The stunning piece is made in St.Petersburg, Russia and when people stopped me on every street to ask where I bought the dress, I proudly said “it’s a Russian designer”.
Also, can we take a moment to appreciate this white sneaker trend and how major designers are proving that you don’t need to wear stilettos with your outfits to put your look together. Pointing at you, Chanel. I walked from midtown NYC to soho and back up in this outfit and I had not a single blister or bandaid taken out of my bag. So perhaps the comfort zone is not the enemy at all times. I now always carry around flats in my handbag if it is space permitting, because your feet can only be abused so many times. I have a theory that a model is not a model if her hair is healthy and her feet are perfectly pedicured and without a single scab. Only in my dreams, or retirement… so in my dreams basically.
