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.

Hello my beautiful readers!

It was wonderful to wake up this morning and have 20 degrees Celsius at 8am after all of the rain that has been flooding Toronto. In all honesty, I never believed Toronto would, or even could, flood….Surprise, surprise. 

So how to celebrate this warm weather? I’m whipping out my, as I call it, minimalistic clothing – High waisted shorts (from Garage – bogo event, I am okay with that) and a t-shirt from my local Black Market that went under a little “DIY operation”.

I love the Black Market for reasons such as the shirt, with the infamous Phil Spector on it, was $1.99. Read that sentence again, I’m not joking. 

For this shirt specifically, I cut it as a crop with a tie at the bottom. It’s a perfect length with these retro high waisted shorts! The sunglasses are also from Black Market, where you can find other great styles, all for $10!

For those with a background on Phil Spector, perhaps the title of this post sparks a little “punny” in you, but go out and dress to kill with the wonderful weather out right now!

As a side note > My giveaway is still going so check it out for this Dylan bracelet from Foxy Originals > https://motherniche.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/foxy-originals-giveaway/

Hotter than Cara Delevingne?

No one.

As a former model, I often pay close attention to the industry, checking out upcoming models, new magazines, and posters in stores. Usually it’s to see if I know the model or silently critique a photo, but one face that I keep seeing is Cara Delevingne’s.

At only 20 years old, this new it girl is on the rise, and fast too. She’s the hottest model out there, receiving “Model of the Year” in 2012 and elegantly graced the cover of Vogue UK.

However, it’s not her accomplishments that strike me, but her raw beauty. I mean, come on, have you seen those eyebrows? Cheekbones? And her organic look is ideal for the industry. No one would walk by without a second take.

Delevingne stands out; and not only because of her cheekbones, eyebrows, and raw beauty, but for her quirky personality. D always pulls a funny face whenever she can, showing her fun natured character. It’s no wonder this girl knows how to emerge in a group of models, and I can guarantee that anyone she works with loves her personality.

Did I mention this girl eats? Heck, yes! Delevingne is not afraid to shove a burger in her face and defy, shall we say, the “standards” of the industry. You go, girl!

Catwalk Queen
Delevingne is on the shorter side of the modelling height standards, but her success is far greater than any measurement. Just recently, she was named the “star face” of the A/W 2012-2013 fashion season. Cara was in the Victoria Secret Fashion show and for SS13, the Catwalk Queen walked for nine shows and counting, including Oscar de la Renta, Burberry Prorsum, and DKNY.

Can’t wait to see what Cara will continue to bring-
