What I Wore : Week of 25th April, 2016

I love going to Kingsland Mall aka Dalston Mall. This mall is more of an extension of Ridley Road Market, with kiosks where I am sure you can haggle your way down on the price of some Chinese luggage or a sectional couch. There are a few ‘Everything for £5’ stores, which end up having closing down…

What I Wore : Week of 18th April, 2016

Where were you when you found out that Prince died? I was at my desk, on Google Hangouts, and found out through IM. I was told so nonchalantly, in the middle of a chat about visas and immigration. I was stunned. Tears welled up in my eyes, and the world felt like it was shutting…

What I Wore : Week of 11th April, 2016

Birthday Week! I think there comes a time in your life when you stop fussing about your birthday. You enjoy the day, you live for yourself, and it’s not to please anyone but yourself. I had an incredible birthday this year, alone, having a fancy lunch, going to the cinema, having some cheeky daytime prosecco….

What I Wore : Week of 4th April, 2016

Whenever I go back to Canada to visit, it has become an important tradition to bring back something ‘Canadian’. But not obviously Canadian like a maple leaf t-shirt – it has to be more subtle: a Raptors tee, a Toronto Public Library shirt, an HBC tote bag – subtle Canadian. Some days it feels good to…

What I Wore : Week of 29th March, 2016

I went to visit my parents the week of the 22nd of March. I hadn’t seen them in a long time, and my mom nostalgically  wanted to do my hair, like when I was a kid. I had braids for so many years of my life, and after 20 years, I was over it and hated them;…

What I Wore : Week of 14th March, 2016

When my good friend came to visit London in March 2015 from Canada, she wanted to see all the things, and take advantage of London shops and fashions. Her cousin worked at a boutique which had this great sweater and when she told me she was going to buy it, I instantly wanted one too…

What I Wore : Week of 7th March, 2016

I used to wear short skirts exclusively. There is a rule that when you have your arms straight down your skirt should be below your fingertips, and in 2015 I decided that it was probably a good idea to start following this rule to be more ‘professional’ and to be taken ‘seriously’. I think deep down…

What I Wore Week of 29th February, 2016

I get into moods where I am sick of ALL of my clothes. There is a lot of repeating going on. I call it creative recycling, and I think it is working for me, but there are moments when I crave change. This usually results in a  bulk order from Asos (because who has time…

What I Wore : Week of 22nd, February 2016

When I was younger and wore heels out, surely they didn’t hurt as much as they do now. How could I have survived those nights out with all the dancing? Even after a bottle of prosecco, nowadays I still am hobbling around. It must be age. It has to be. These lace up heels I…

What I Wore : Week of 15th February, 2016

I usually get a good response when I wear my Coca-Cola t-shirt. I found it at Primark on Mare Street on Hackney. Have you been there? It’s a zoo. It’s actually great. It was on the t-shirt rack, in a heaping tangled mess aka the preferred visual merchandising technique at that location. It didn’t have a price…

What I Wore : Week of 8th February, 2016

This was a good body week. Early on, I was feeling sexy and cute and wanted to show off some curves and swerves in my new grey skirt. I was also feeling like going into the archives on Thursday with that Justice shirt that brings back all the memories of 2008 when they did a…

What I Wore : Week of 1st February, 2016

The week of the 1st of February looks lazy. Wearing the same thing but not on Monday and Wednesday…wearing trying on Tuesday but not hard enough. I probably had a meeting on Thursday which explains trying to pull myself together. By Friday I just wanted to rep Toronto. If I could psychologically analyse this set…
