These socks are the ultimate accessorry for your Hunters!

Make your own!

This website came to my attention while browsing on another blog...
Its this really cool website that allows you to design the type of shoe that you want. Then you can either send in your design, and they'll make it for you and send it to you by mail, or you can just play around with it and see what you come up with! Its so much fun! Its the perfect way to know you'll love the shoe you're buying online! 
Have fun!! 
Here is one of my designs :
Simple but cute, dont you think?

Girl Crush -

Anyone say Chung?

 This is someone whose shoes I'd love to be in for one day if i could...

I think that I've found my new obsession: Alexa Chung. She is probably one of the best dressed women out there and I can't get enough of her! Her style is so simple, yet classy, and effortless-looking that she deffinatlely tops my list of 'it girls'.  

This british model turned designer (although she still models) now has her own collection for Madewell, does charity work and has hosted many TV shows and is bursting at the seems with passion for what she does. 

She is really the one to watch out for over the next few months!

Here are a few of my favourites of her:

Being a lover of musicals since I was a girl, I absolutely cannot wait to see this movie! I'm so excited to see what Chritina can do! The trailer makes it look so good; I hope I won't be disappointed!! Haha, I have a feeling I'll be singing the songs non-stop after watching it! And then downloading all of it onto my iPod of course. (:

Teen Vogue Fashion U 2010

Zac Posen everyone! He was very inspiring and had great advice about how to get your foot in the door of the fashion industry,

It felt so special to have her speaking directly to us! She was quite funny and very real about everything.

Me (Sophie) at the Juicy shopping event. There was food, music, and promotions for all TVFU students! 
Key note speaker Vera Wang!

At the H&M Shopping Event, bought a floral t-shirt, and a fringed leather jacket (all at 25% off!)

Time Square of course.

Teen Vogue offices! Although I did not get to go into the headquarters I did have the chance to go into the GQ offices and other publications in the Conde Nast building.

This October, I got to experience a great event called Teen Vogue Fashion U. The application process was in August and decision was sent back in September. I was so excited to have participated in such a fantastic event! Here is the official website of TVFU :

Fun In The Rain

Instead of being stuck inside during a rainy afternoon, we decided to embrace that rain and do a fun photoshoot!
I am obsessed with Hunter rain boots! They go with almost anything and can always look chic. Perfect for rain, and the countryside. :)

Nothing like a fun day at the beach in a fun jumper.

Although I have tried to avoid polka-dots, I could not resist this wonderful navy-blue, white polka-dotted jumper. I purchased this jumper at a great little vintage store in downtown Toronto, 40$. The sunglasses were from Kensington Market in Toronto, 5$
