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!

The 2013 UB Round Up

2013 urbanebloc

If there were any way to describe this year for myself and urbanebloc, it would be massive. Absolutely massive. The underlying theme for the entire 365 days that marked 2013 was epic change – no other year has been as incredibly transformative in a positive and unruly way. Here are a few ways how:

When I think about the brand BCBGMAXAZRIA, I immediately think about extravagant, formal gowns that are great for special occasions like prom, red carpet events, birthdays and office cocktail parties. Visiting their first-ever spring/summer 2014 media preview proved me wrong as I became acquainted with easy to wear pieces from their latest runway, ready to wear and their signature Hervé Léger by Max Azria collections over a delicious breakfast.

It’s happening. Word on the street is one of my favourite fashion and style bloggers (of ALL TIME, no really, no joke) is collaborating with Canadian etailer, eLUXE. If you haven’t already heard the news, the collaboration is with none other than the celebrated style influencer Aimee Song of hailing from the West Coast, California. Interior designer by trade, she runs her fashion and lifestyle site from the chic city of Los Angeles and boasts a loyal global following with over 1.1 million Instagram followers alone.


Starting December 4, 2013, we can now all own a piece of Aimee’s inimitable style through the Song of Style for eLUXE capsule collection featuring a limited run of six luxury t-shirts and sweatshirts. From what we’ve seen so far, the collection is wearable, sophisticated and in line with the season’s hottest sweatshirt trend. The tees and sweatshirts are available in a classic crew or raw neck and can be found in chic dark storm and white, white and black or grey and black combinations. Affordable and aspirational, the pieces are priced from $40 to $90.


Want to know the best news of all? She’s coming to Toronto this week and I’ll be doing a short interview with her in person! Excuse me while I collect myself. Now the pressure’s on, and I’ve only got one question running a mile a minute in my head: What to wear?!
