shot these two gals in montreal on the same day- the former is a magazine editor, and the latter is a blogger (have a peek at gaelle leroyer). i have this thing for sweden, and maybe im wrong but their radient beauty, sharp blonde hair and casual cool reminded me of that. from now on, streetstyle photos won’t only be on the facebook page, but also on the blog! im printing out business cards this weekend, and hitting the streets of seoul. hope you will like what this city has to offer!
pulled a few of these streetstyle photos via tommy ton. i think i keep taking step backs in terms of fashion, so i’ve been admiring these kinds of ladylike looks, that are still badass in their own respect. i think “fashion” people are headed in two directions right now (1) pile on as much as you possibly can; textures, colors, prints, etc (2) bare minimalism.
for the former, quite frankly its rare that these kinds of outfits look nice in daily life. people put a lot of thought into their fashion week outfits, but if you are a busy bee running from school to work to home, these outfits are not practical. not to worry, the crazy fashion week photos you generally see are an outcome of total fashion genius, lots of money being spent, and throw in some supermodel bodz.
the latter is becoming outplayed, boring and way too easy. im not saying im anti-minimalism, but i am saying im seeing the same birkenstocks, denim and white tee outfits everywhere. instead, im just trying to stick with classic looks. lately when shopping, i try to focus on the pieces themselves and not how they will fit into one specific outfit. should the color and texture be right, it should go with everything. as for being on a budget, i think accessories are king at the moment. that way you can easily achieve a put together look, that has interesting cues and not worry too much about what to wear during the morning rush.
celebrating pride week with american apparel montreal! i chose this OUT! tshirt because i thought its colorful and fun and my last and only attempt at being bright and cheerful this summer haha. that, and american apparel tshirts are really soft and cozy. its weird, because diversity in general is second nature to us in canada. on the daily, you are always exposed to different sexual orientations, cultures, traditions, etc. thats definitely not the case for everywhere else in the world, so its important to keep celebrating and promoting equal rights!
you can all get 15% off on all lgbqt tshirts up until sun. aug 16th. #AAOUTmontreal

its pretty sad that everyone i know is parting ways, but the great thing is everyone i know travels a ton, considers at least 2 or 3 cities ‘home’ and doesn’t forget to keep in touch! i began packing my suitcases early on and realized that nothing was going to fit inside them. so on sunday, we had a big garage sale at mount royal and i managed to sell a ton of my clothes (i was practically giving them away tbh). then i went to piknic electronik, which is a montreal festival at which international and local djs play all day long and you can buy buckets of wine, or yummy snacks at the food trucks. it was a blast! rachel came into town for a little bit- i suggest you like her modeling page, shes the best.
in other news, because of the move, we are closing down bimbomb! so get it while you can. tax is included in the pricing, as is shipping for quebec. if you want to buy a bundle of things, just contact me personally. —> shop now @ bimbomb
