Beckermans at JCrew

 Had a great time tonight at the Jcrew event hosted by the Beckerman twins, Sam and Cailli Beckerman- Writers of the BeckermanBiteplate.  Perks of living in Toronto, right?

No matter what month or season, JCrew always succeeds to make ‘preppy’ so friken appealing, even when I’ve convinced myself otherwise. But now I wonder, why would I ever convince myself otherwise? And all the sparkle really brings out even more of my premature holiday excitement. I mean, you walk into the store and everything is either jeweled, beaded or has some sort of metallic detail on it. Have you seen their accessories?!

Well, I got a half blurry insta with the Beckermans, and a holiday worthy shirt out of the night, AND the gift bag came with a reeeally nice bracelet- so I’d call it a success.

Seriously... do it.

Miley Cyrus... OMG

It seems boarder line illegal to mention that exceedingly controversial name and not state my life altering, game changing, overly opinionated life statement on the girl (or are we not allowed to call her a girl anymore!? :O)

However this isn’t a “is she or isn’t she a feminist” post- nor a post that’s debating her vulgarity or taking a stance on her ability to twerk. However if someone doesn’t start patrolling me, I cannot accept responsibility for the direction in which my rants may veer.

Is it possible to just get sick of controversy? I mean vagina this, nudity that, menstruation and masturbation! The M-squared! With all this Miley Cyrus and Petra Collins all over the place it is truly blurring the lines between who’s actually creating a movement and who’s just brainstorming ideas to write the next SNL skit.

I’m getting sick of all this controversy and everyone profusely shoving their believes down each others throat… we’re all starting to choke if you ask me.

So without further ado I am going to state my opinion…. Disregarding her half (or fully) naked endeavors, or her pornographic (or not pornographic?) Terry Richardson photo shoots… I must admit I do like how she accessorizes. Most of the time- I mean the times that don’t include double buns or a flailing tongue.

I remember reading an interview where she mentioned how she always has a big bag full of accessorize- from big Chanel chains and rings to ear cuffs and I’m assuming a few sticks of bright red lipstick. I must admit, I have always been a bit overly obsessed with wearing red lipstick, all day, everyday… I don’t see why not! Anyways… You never know when a duffle bag full of accessorize may come in handy, right? Miley, I may have to copy you on that idea.

And look… don’t get me wrong, I’m not about to hop on stage naked and bare all to billions of people with a foam finger and Robin Thicke by my side (not that I really had the option to begin with), but I also wouldn’t go as far as calling Miley a disgrace to all man kind. She’s clearly doing her thang… and if its really that disgusting then you better not buy a ticket to her concert! Noone is forcing anyone to watch her skimp around half nude!

If at this point my lack of depth has fazed you, or my not-meant-to-be-opinionated- but-opinionated-nonetheless post has irritated you, or if you’re just yawning at this point- at least you’ve read this far. I mean Miley seems so fascinating these days, if the joke on a dubble bubble wrapper was about her I bet you’d even read that!

Following are some pictures of her (better) accessorizing.

Ear Cuffs, Chains, Gold Cuffs.

The oversized chain bracelets, necklaces/ body chains and rings

Ear Cuff and Red Lips

Chanel Cuff, Necklace, Red Lips and White Nails... and you know what, I'm even liking the cherry in this picture.

How could one not want to wear that necklace? The white outfit with that necklace and the chain bracelets.... its a winner. Yep, its definitely a good one. 

This just makes me want to dress in all white, paint my nails white, throw this necklace on and some gold bracelets.
I really like this look. 

New goal: Buy a duffle bag

Next Goal: Fill it with said accessories.... this necklace and vintage Chanel, if were really getting specific here.

The Mean Reds

“You know those days when you get the mean reds?... suddenly you’re afraid, and you don’t know what your afraid of…” as Audrey would put it.

Or in other words, you know those days when you’re feeling a bit sad, for no particular reason- and not knowing the cause of said feelings makes it a bit harder to get rid of them. “Well, when I get the mean reds the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s,” or in my case, last weekend- Bal Habour.

Retail therapy: the best way to rid oneself of unknown, unwanted feelings. Well that and eating chocolate, a lot of chocolate. Maybe throw in an iced aroma light or two and some Breakfast at Tiffany’s, for best results…(which I’ve obviously been watching too much of lately). But before I make this more complicated than it needs to be just remember: RETAIL THERAPY- works like a charm.

This past weekend, said feelings scraped up some good ol’ buys- take a look:

Retrosuperfuture - Ilaria Silver
Never stop discovering new designers for sunglasses- Love this line
Miu Miu- Pointed Toe Ankle Boot

AllSaints- Canada Mini Split Lucille Skirt
Alice + Olivia - Polka Dot Cropped Top
This is the best picture I could find... 

Jimmy Choo- Youth Soft Biker Leather Boots
Sucha classic and necessary staple to ones closet. I feel a little bit more complete and prepared to share the winter with these babies.

Helmut Lang- Crash Jacquard Leather Jacket
I got it in black, and right now I'm contemplating what my values towards colors are.... the red is just so nice, how does one choose?

I was considering not writing 'Helmut Lang' in the description of this jacket because, well, isn't it just so obvious that a jacket with this degree of perfection is in fact, Helmut Lang?!
Its just so impossible for him to create a jacket that is anything but perfect. Some may even say flawless. Yep, definitely flawless.
and I am clearly passionate about this topic...

Beware of Heavy Machinery

Stella McCartney- redefining platforms and making you proud to know that you look like your operating a CAT machine.

Oh yea, and check out the back of these dresses- you'll look even better when you're walking away. It comes in handy sometimes.
