Dress Up

In a completely random twist of fate a few weeks back I somehow found myself at the Vans sample sale here in Toronto, and upon learning that all of the shoes just happened to be my size, I knew I’d been brought there for a reason.

Even though I’m usually not super into animal prints, I found myself inexplicably drawn to a pair of leopard print Vans, and after comparing them with a few other much more typically RAOP pairs, I decided to take them home.

As strange as it sounds, these loud slip ons have managed to breathe new life into my wardrobe, providing a much needed pop of texture and fun to otherwise ordinary outfits. Though they seemed like a strange purchase at the time, I’m so glad I “adopted” them into my pastel life. I guess you never know when or how you’re going to surprise yourself!

Dear Diary

Okay, so Barbie is having a bit of a moment right now, and as a devoted Barbie girl, I couldn’t be more excited to be living in this Barbie world.

With my love of the world’s favourite doll in mind, you can probably imagine how ecstatic I got when Paige invited me to accompany her on a buying trip to see Wildfox’s resort collection a few months ago and the entire line ended up being Barbie themed. Everything from the “Barbie Dream House” lookbook to the “I Love Ken” sweaters and “Barbie” logo tees are so perfect, and there’s even a special magic twist to this clothing line that I can’t quite reveal yet (let’s just say it’s awfully sweet!)

While I (we?) eagerly wait for the collection to hit Bicyclette in January (sad face) so I can buy every single thing, here’s a little sneak peak at the perfectly pink look book from MTV!
