Deep Blue

In the past, I have had the privilege of working with a wonderful photographer, Daniela Majic. Daniela and I have worked together on a few different shoots but at the end of the summer she approached me with a new idea: an underwater series.

Recently, she purchased a case for her camera and we both couldn’t wait to try it out. Daniela also made the longer dress for the shoot. Surprisingly, both garments didn’t take in too much damage.

Creep Shot: St. Petersburg

A new segment I’ve decided to start. Essentially, just snapping quick photos from behind of noteworthy trends from various places. This one features St. Petersburg in the summer.

My favourite part of Russia is the existing chivalry. Though they have adopted a lot of habits from the West, Russian boys always come to the first couple of dates with at least one flower. Evidently, this girl was very lucky.


Another, girls/ladies/women are always dressed up in heels and dresses/skirts for casual days and dates. High class.


This caught my eye for several obvious reasons. Seems as though the Russian ‘P!NK’ is in the house. Still in heels, we see a form of punk on the streets of St. P.IMG_4931

The Western Hipster in the form of a Russian Hipster. Always a comforting style to see around the world.


I like the bohemian dress and purse, but the heels threw me off. Perhaps the heel cutoff suggests the financial state of the style. Bohi-what? IMG_4938

The most redundant trend of the bunch: tattoos on the legs. In the West, tattoos have become increasingly in style, and now they are in Russia too. What’s interesting is that tattoos always had a second conotation (only Thieves by Law had tattoos, i.e. ex-cons). Influence from the West is getting stronger.IMG_4940

With two days of rain and the rest of 30 degree with sun, I was lucky to have packed my suitcase with variety. Knowing the standard of dressing up, I made sure to pack an abundance of dresses and skirts. Maxis are my favourite because you can play around with the length. As for shoes, a nude suede flat is always safe, birkenstocks for the heavier walking days, and no shortage of heels for all of the nights out.

Sincerest Apologies

When I started this blog, I told myself I would keep at it and not turn into the thousands of other bloggers that take a long break and write an even longer apology for their absence. Unfortunately, I’m guilty.

Who knew that life would get in the way. The last time I wrote on this blog was about half a year ago when I was on my trip and then came home to having to pack everything right back up for university. And then university took its toll on the little extra time I had. But after finally adjusting to a schedule that works for me, I am going to get this blog back up and running.

So again, my sincerest apologies.

I have a bunch of great posts that are ready to be posted and can’t wait to share them with everyone.

Sunrise and Layovers in Paris

I had a bit of time during my layover in Charles de Gaulle (Parisian airport). Though I’ve been here many times, I don’t think I ever liked it as much as this time. The sunrise, paired with the window wall illuminated the waiting area, and let me tell you, it got hot. I took off my jacket and cardigan, and decided to walk around, wearing a black tank top, leggings, and Clark’s. In Canada, wearing leggings and a tank top is a norm, but it was interesting to see the looks I was getting from local Parisians. As I learned from my visit last year, ladies like to cover their hips, especially if they’re wearing leggings.
Paris definitely deserves the title as one of the fashion capitals, because all the ladies are able to compliment their body types, cover their bums, and do it stylishly.
Long shirts and cardigans did the trick, while also colour blocking and layering. Well done my Parisian ladies, well done indeed.
