It’s officially Spring, although it’s still cold and calling for snow Sunday, but       WELCOME TO CANADA FOLKS! The weather better start to warm up because I have a birthday looming and if it isn’t nice then it’s not worth celebrating! That’s just the bratty me talking but my birthday has always been hot (if you read my blog you know the story and if you don’t well sorry I hate repeating myself) so when it’s not it just kinda stinks; you can’t dress cute or eat birthday ice cream if it’s not H-A-W-T out, am I right?

Any who, in no way is this a birthday list of possible gifts. We all know that went out the window the day I turned..16 I think. It was like “oh yeah, you’re sweet alright sweet… and TOO OLD FOR GIFTS!” So let’s take this above list as inspiration of what I may be gifting myself this year. After all, we come into this world alone and we go out alone, and I will live alone in a dumpster with my maxed out credit card in the meantime.

Check out what I craved last time here!

What Would WBDW Wear X The Canadian Tuxedo

DSCF8088

Levis Jacket, Band Tee, Forever 21 Jeans, Yoki Loafers via Winners, Roots Bag, Public Butter Sunglasses

The doubled denim look, dubbed the “Canadian Tuxedo” by moments in Levis fashion history,  is something I wear often. I may be Canadian but that’s not why, I just find that I’m at my most comfortable in Denim, yes you can call me crazy. A flowy dress, or loose skirt for me is the complete opposite of comfortable. I’m always picking and pulling and making sure things are in place while wearing outfits like that, can you say stress!?

 I think denim on denim has effortless personal style cred. It’s super easy and you don’t need to overthink what works and what doesn’t. I’d say what doesn’t work does! Doubling up your denim and mixing different shades is a fun task and I think you’ll be pretty pleased with the outcome. I personally love mixing different shades of the same shade ( if that made any sense) to create contrast. Light blue denim on an even lighter washed blue with say dark thread or coloured threading is something I would look at while styling this look. You can also get away with different shades of black on black; can you believe that! My personal fave for the summer is white on white, or a white denim jacket with super light washed blue mom jeans or light washed shorts/skirt. Seriously the combinations are absolutely endless. After that slip on a fun shoe and quirky bag and you’re good to go.

Some of my fave stores in Toronto to snag denim/vintage denim: House of Vintage,   Public Butter, Philistine, Mama Loves You Vintage, Value Village, Forever 21 (cheap can DIY), Urban Outfitters and Common Sort. The list goes on really…

Currently Craving: Metallic Shoes

Slide1

Metallics are a simple way to spice up your shoe game this summer. The sun is shining and bouncing off your feet, so make sure you get a fresh pedi because all eyes will be on your  matching sparkly toes. Rose gold is still heavy on trend which is great for every skin tone. Warming up lighter, pinky toned skin; and popping off darker skin tones. Shoes are one of my favourite ways to switch up any basic outfit. Sometimes I find myself outfit repeating for weeks on end (the same jeans with rotating tees) thus; a metallic pop can amp up any everyday outfit from day to night. Imagine wearing an old band tee with cut off Levis. Now that’s in your mind throw on the Steve Madden slides (#9) for a day of running errands. Then, uh oh I’m late for that date I have planned with a cute new boy or gal, pop on those metallic pink Gucci’s, hey girl hayyy! Now that that scenario is in your mind and you’ve been enticed to buy a pair of stand-out summer shoes follow these links below to purchase your new shoes, metallic mama.

Currently Craving: Shopping For A New Wallet

Slide1

Money, money, money, must be funny, in the rich man’s world.

Shopping for a new wallet is probably as hard for me as shopping for jeans. I somehow have this OCD process as to which my wallet needs to meet certain credentials to make the cut. With that I’m dreading coming to terms with needing a new wallet. I currently have a super fun Kate Spade wallet in this highlighter neon yellow/green colour but the fabric in the coin holder has ripped and the zipper get’s stuck on it so I basically can’t use that part and paying to fix that fabric is a little silly, but I just love my little wallet. The thing is I have a very specific style I like when it comes to wallets. I really don’t like the zipper wallets, I only like trifolds or bifolds where I can see everything in front of me and easily pull out cards and money to pay. I also like when the card slots are vertical because again I just find it easier to see everything and pull things out quicker. I also really like when the coin pouch is on the outside preferably on the back of the wallet. I also don’t like “cheap” wallets; designer wallets just last longer. Think about how often you whip your wallet out and then toss it carelessly in your bag…A LOT! I’d like the things I purchase to last, so I spend more to last longer. Think about all the “cheaper” wallets you’ve bought over the years and how many times you’ve probably had to replace it, it’s just not worth it. Splurge a little and the payoff is there I swear.

I’m really not a very picky person but for some reason I’m very particular when it comes to wallets. As long as it meets most of those above credentials and it’s not a zip around wallet then we’re on our way to the mall, or the bank to pay off the designer Visa charge.

1) Coach slim trifold wallet: The inside of this perfect emerald green wallet is a gorgeous rose graffiti print that I am obsessed with. That is number one on my list for a reason!     (I think it may be the winner)

2) Gucci leather french flap wallet: As a fan of  good Feng Shui, red wallets bring luck and money; something you’ll need after you purchase this wallet. I’m also a huge fan of smaller wallets so I don’t have to condense into a card holder when I switch to smaller bags.

3) Frye harness leather continental wallet via Nordstrom: Super simple and sleek, I am digging this minimalism/functionality combo.

4) Chloe alphabet long wallet: Every girl wants to be a #chloegirls and I need a little dusty rose Chloe in my life.

5) Kate Spade New York ‘cameron street-stacy’ textured leather wallet via Nordstrom: Classic style and no fuss inside just like I like it!

6) Mackage ATLAS envelope wallet- Canadian brand in a Canadian colour. Yes and Yes.

7) Liebeskind ‘SLAMR’ wallet-ON SALE and so fierce. Great leather for a great price and super cute mustard yellow colour and snakeskin texture combo.
