Is everyone still recovering as World MasterCard Fashion Week sprinkled the last of its magic fashion dust on Toronto on Friday? I was incredibly fortunate enough to attend the studio and runway shows of superbly talented designers. The last seven days definitely brought all the fashionistas to the yard and provided some serious eye candy. There’s quite a bit to say about the entire week but here are a few of my favourite trendiest highlights for this Fall/Winter 2014: Read More

Wedluxe is #Fabuluxe

When I was asked to cover the Wedluxe wedding show for urbanebloc, I wasn’t sure what to expect. If there was anything that I did hope to see, it was blown away in a matter of seconds. Starting off from the luxurious rose covered ceiling to the massive map detailing all the vendors within the event area, it was an incredible experience from beginning to end.

I brought a friend who was recently engaged and planning to marry this year, and it was such a great experience! She was able to speak to the vendors one on one, and provide personal recommendations and it was a huge relief. Navigating the grounds of WedLuxe is no easy feat and I’d highly recommend planning to spend at a minimum of three hours which could lend itself to an entire day excursion at the Wedluxe show. In between, we sipped champagne and sampled treats from vendors, resulting in a major sugar high.

DO EPIC CHIC with Song of Style


Photography by: Michael Jo

That moment of welcoming your favourite style blogger of all time to your home town! Aimee Song, otherwise known as Song of Style, was in Toronto recently to promote her new capsule collection with I had the pleasure of attending an intimate meet and greet with loyal fans and fashion bloggers alike, where we had the chance to shop the collection, sip some bubbly, and chat with Aimee.


Easy and ready-to-wear, the Song of Style x eLUXE collection was soft to the touch. After much deliberation, I picked up the oversized DO EPIC CHIC grey sweatshirt which has quickly become my go-to comfort sweater (pictured above on the right). I love how versatile it is and how easy you can dress it up or down by simply switching it with a pair of leather pants or skirt.


Ashley and I with Aimee!

Big thanks to Michael Jo for capturing the awesome memories and eLUXE for having us.
