Lupita Named Most Beautiful. 

 

Photos via People.

It is officially the year of Lupita. People has just named Lupita Nyong'o the world's Most Beautiful Woman and though I'm not surprised, I am so thrilled. You get the sense that she really is just one of those genuinely beautiful people. I really hope I don't find out that she's a homewrecker or kicks puppies because right now, I believe that she's talented and kind and that if I ran into her, she and I would sit down with a glass of wine and have a really great chat and she and I would solve all of the world's problems. And then we'd go shoe shopping.

An Ode to Earth Day

Orwell Crossbody Bag, $135, Matt & Nat

You'd think after the winter we just had (and that some of us are still having...so sorry...), I would be opposed to any accessory reminiscent of ice. And yet, there's something about this Glacier handbag from Canadian eco-leaders Matt & Nat. I'm loving the cool blue colour (wearable in any season) and the oversized silhouette, but most of all, I love that it's made so responsibly from vegan leather with a 100% recycled nylon lining. Guilt-free dressing at its best.

Happy Earth Day to you!

Little. White. Dress.

 

 

Guess Julia Dress, $98 (currently on sale for $68.60) at Bootlegger

SMITTEN. How pretty is this dress?! It comes in white, black, soft pink floral and pale blue stripes (the finest, prettiest, super-narrow stripes you ever did see), though I've managed to narrow it down to white and blue. It 's made by the overt sexpots at Guess so chances are, it will be of a highly inappropriate length for anyone on this side of 30, but I'm holding out hope that it's as long as it looks in pictures. And if not, I'm stealing rlr mini's trick of wearing a frilly white slip underneath to make up the difference. Genius, isn't she?

I found it at Bootlegger (I know!) and luckily, the store just happens to be holding a 30% off dress sale this very moment. Well, what, pray tell, are you waiting for?  

Happy long weekend, sweetest thangs. There are mini eggs all over my house and I know every single hiding spot. It's a dangerous job being the Easter Bunny, isn't it?

I'm one of those people who make the jump from winter straight to summer. I go from massive clunky boots to sockless feet because for some reason, I find the in-between stuff tough to swallow. I mean, is it warm or isn't it? Seriously, let's commit, shall we? But then, there I am in the middle of an April rainstorm, with freezing wet feet, a mass of frizzy hair, and a see-through white tee, cursing myself for not being better prepared and wishing I had a cute umbrella to cover me up as I drag my stubborn feet home...

Reality Check: Spring's Most Wearable Trends

Originally posted in The Fashion Scoop

Designers send so many 'must-have' trends down the runways that it can be pretty tough to keep up. And sometimes, if we're honest, we don't really want to keep up. While some look amazing in the glossy pages of Vogue, or on Cara Delevingne's stick-thin bod, not all trends work for every day. We've rounded up 12 spring trends we love because they're a) beautiful and b) actually wearable, which will help us look chic and feel amazing as this new season gets underway. Excited? Us, too...
