Slow Magic

Je suis complètement tombée sous le charme de Slow Magic. Qui est-ce? Nous même on ne le sait pas. Les rumeurs disent qu'il s'agit d'un duo. Personnellement, j'espère un jour savoir leur identité. Slow Magic a beaucoup de talent. Sa musique douce me transporte toujours dans un autre monde lorsque je mets mes écouteurs. Pour le moment, la formation nous a présenté une collection nommée ▲ qui comprend les morceaux (Corvette Cassette, Toddler Tiger et Sorry Safari). J'attends impatiemment la suite!

Micheal Kors Peep Toe Wedges

I was casually browsing a shoe store that was having a closing sale. I went to the 10$ shoe rack to see what was good, everything looked pretty bad, until I saw a pair of super cute peep toe wedges that looked oddly familiar. For that price, of course I couldn't resist! When I came home I started looking them up, I had find out where I had seen these before. Then I got it! Micheal Kors has the exact same ones!-with a slightly different hue (But for 178.95$ more mind you)

My peep toes: 10$ +tax

Thrifted Finds

Thrifting is a difficult job but can be very rewarding if you actually take the time to see what the thrift stores have to offer, and actually visualize how certain clothing articles can be modified. Here is a fraction of the stuff that I've  managed to find while out hunting for pretty things!

Leather Flats

Leather Shorts (Mentioned in previous posts)

Very cute little note books, perfect for design drawing! (1$ ea)

Estee Lauder make up case

Very cute leather clutch!

LV imitation, but still very handy as a makeup case!

Modeselektor at Metropolis June 2 2011

Voici un aperçu de la formation Modeselektor, lors de leur passage à Montréal dans le cadre du festival Mutek 2011. Ce fut un des meilleurs concerts que j'ai eu la chance de voir. C'est deux allemands remplis d'énergie savent comment animer les spectateurs avec leur énergie et leur musique.

A little bit of window shopping

Local designer boutique
Today I met up with a good friend of mine simply for a midday walk on the river front, where we did a tad of window shopping. One store was based more on local designers where the other had designer names including Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Lanvin and others. Here are a few images of the day.

WOW. This whole collection just screams DIY. Bleaching, Studding, Tearing and even Safety pinning.They're selling full boxes of safety pins at the dollar store for only one dollar. This one is definitely on the to-do list. If anybody has attempted this please give us a heads up! We would love to showcase your DIY.

Chanel YSL Balmain Vs Zara

Chanel via Vogue
Spotted this very Chanel/YSL-like blouse at Zara today. The black and white is a very common theme in Chanel's 2012 resort collection and was also a common one at the the Paris Fashion week for YSL (as mentioned in a previous post).

ALSO! Zara has this fabulous white Blazer which is an exact replica of Balmain's white Blazer! Amazing....

Mesh Dress
