Fear of colour? What fear of colour? Any anxiety I used to harbour over wearing anything other than black, white and grey (with the occasional navy blue when I was feeling craaazy) has now officially dissipated. I even finally! joined the ranks of, well, everyone else and sported a pair of coloured denim last week. Whoa.
Admittedly, this sudden move was encouraged by the lovely ladies over at She Does The City, who presented me with a pair of Old Navy The Rockstar super skinny jeans and challenged me to style them. And I’m never one to back down from a challenge! So off I went with my swanky new green jeans into the most graffitied alley I could find. So how did I do?
Check out the feature over at She Does The City. They call me ‘cool’ and ‘walking art’ and other super nice things that kind of made me blush. Oh, and buy a new pair of The Rockstar jeans for yourself – they’re only $19 until October 3!

Now that we’ve been sweltering in 30-degree Celsius weather for some time now, I decided a short respite from the heat was needed.
Turn up the A/C, grab a cup of hot coffee and give these 21 photos of classic trenches, chic scarves and must-have smoking slippers a gander. Not to worry – we’ve still got lots of summer to go. But when it’s finally gone for the year, at least there will be plenty of highly covetable fall fashions at Banana Republic, Gap and Old Navy to help soften the blow.

A few months ago, when we were still wearing short shorts (without tights) and hanging out on patios, Banana Republic, Gap and Old Navy held their respective Holiday 2011 previews. I was in denial about summer ever ending at the time, so I refused to post about them, even though I really liked what I saw.
But with the first snows having hit Toronto yesterday and Christmas just around the corner, there’s no point in denying the arrival of winter any longer. The good news is, there are some incredibly chic accessories offerings in stores that are definitely worth braving the elements for this season. So what shall it be – an animal print clutch from Banana Republic or a double pocket leather tote from the Gap? I say one of each, please!
