Style in The Neighbourhood

I was so psyched last Saturday to attend The Neighbourhood concert in Toronto with my sister (second photo below).

Ready to go (:

We went for dinner at Hemmingway’s in Toronto on the way to the concert, which is always a good place if you enjoy a crowd.

Out with the Uniform, in with Dress-Down Day!

At my school we have uniform but once a month there’s a “grub day” which is a day for us to wear whatever we want.  So, while every other day requires no thought at all, grub days are the cause of much deep thinking.  Therefore, whenever I have a grub day, it is a mini-“EVENT”, and I will probably post what I wore.  For my school’s grub day last Thursday, this is what I decided to wear:

I just got the knapsack from Aldo at the mall, and its pattern contains turquoise and shades of purple and violet, so I chose my Joe Fresh bright jeans and my batwing shirt to pick up those colours.  The scarf picks up the violet again.  Also, the faux leather straps and details on the knapsack are a lighter shade of brown like my braided brown belt, so I put on the belt . . . .

I have my Bare Traps combat boots on with them (never get tired of them!).  And, for your viewing pleasure, I located some flowers the same colour as my shirt to take my outfit photos 🙂

Mirror, mirror on the wall…

 

Do you wear uniform?  Do you have special days to dress differently, or casual, at your school?

**********************

RETAIL ALERT!!!  If you live in, or visit, the Toronto area, take note that J. CREW‘s factory store opened two days ago in the Vaughan Mills Mall!  You will find it filled with bright saturated colours at a price point slightly above the neighbouring Banana Republic factory store.  It’s perfect for future dress-down days or casual Fridays at the office.

Trend Update: Bejewelled Cross

In my last post, I mentioned that I did not come out of Forever XXI empty-handed.  Well, who does?

Inspiration. There’s always an inspiration.

The find!

Actually, in pursuit of my Top Ten Fall Fashion Trends for 2012, I snagged the jewels to make Trend No. 9 a reality.  Again, my inspiration, left.  My find, right!

This piece can be worn with any dress or top in any of the colours in the cross, but most stunningly over black.

My version of the look

Tree hugger…?

And look what else I found!

A small kiosk on the lower floor at Upper Canada Mall was selling these cute iPhone cases. Giftable?

Have you bought into the trend of overscale crosses this year?  What do you think about this look?  Comment below and if you like this post, please follow me by clicking the “follow” button in the right-hand margin.
