Must Watch ! Badgley Mischka Spring 2011 Collection


I would honestly wear almost every piece of this collection, excluding certain evening wear. Every single article is absolutely charming in it's own way. Mark Badgley and James Mischka are partners in life and business and what a fabulous relationship they have. Their looks can be described as "red carpet destined evening wear", generally produced with lighter fabrics and less construction.
LOVE! Enjoy.

Progress Report Vernissage

A few weeks ago in Dawson's Warren G. Gallery my class put on a photography exhibit. We each printed two large images,prepared folios and invited friends and family for a night of wine and hors d'oeuvres. The night was a great success and it felt so great to see all my hard work in such a beautiful exhibit. It's moments like these that remind me that all my hard work will pay off. There is nothing more gratifying than to receive compliments on my work, whether it be from my loved ones, teachers or a complete stranger. It feels really good to know that my work can influence others and that they enjoy my photography. My fall semester has only inspired me to try even harder in my winter semester. I'm going to really challenge myself to be the absolute best and produce ten amazing images that I'll be proud to have my name on.

Write it Down

As a photographer I am constantly inspired by my surroundings and it always helps me to jot down my ideas and visions. Being a fashion photographer, it only seems appropriate to scribble my thoughts down in a stylish notebook and lucky for me,Christian Lacroix , a renowned Parisian designer has recently launched a stationary collection. The collection includes notebooks, cards and journals and while visiting the Musée des Beaux Arts gift shop after viewing some galleries, I came upon this notebook and just had to have it. I hope that I'm not stricken with writer's block, because I can't resist scribbling in my beautiful notebook!

Montreal Vintage Shopping

Fur Collar $20 - Friperie St-Laurent
Ralph Lauren Blazer $65- Friperie St-Laurent
Chanel Satin Scarf $20 - Friperie St-Laurent

A few weeks ago I went vintage shopping along Saint-Laurent Street with my friend, Jess. With a little bit of research and some recommendations from friends we set off for some great finds. We started at the bottom of Saint-Laurent at "Eva B" (2013 St-Laurent). Eva.B had a vast selection, but ironically this was the store's down fall. There was just TOO much to go through. The clothes were piled on racks and even into what is called "the one dollar pit" - a five foot deep, mounding pool of clothing. Let's just say it was too much to bare. Overwhelmed, we left with no purchases. We continued up St-Laurent stopping at each store that caught our eyes and Jess made a couple great, small purchases. Our final stop, and most desired destination was "Friperie St-Laurent" (3976 St-Laurent). AMAZING does not even define this store. I could have stayed for hours, but unfortunately the store was fifteen minutes short of closing when we arrived. The sales associate-a friendly, middle aged man was very helpful and personable and informed us that all clothing was 25% off! I highly recommend that you should all shop at this vintage store ; it's officially my favorite!
