it's been too late for a long time

I know I'm late with these, but I just have to say that I love Nicole Richie's new pieces for Winter Kate. I want it all! Also, Vanessa Traina looks stunning in these photos!

*the are photos from the Winter Kate lookbook. I don't remember where I got them from though.


as they try to change their worlds

So in case you have yet to notice, One In Every Color now has a new design. Once again, thanks to Michelle over at JDK productions. I had gotten a little tired of the old heading and colors, so this is a very welcome change for me. One more work day left for me before we have our super long weekend where I will be heading up to my cottage and saying goodbye to civilization. As I sit at my desk right now, I am craving a chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream in a cone to eat while sitting on the end of the dock with my feet dangling in the water. Heaven.


i want to wreck my stockings in some juke box dive

Yeah, so the title may have nothing to do with the post, but I absolutely need/want and have to have all of these booties I found on Singer22. I know it's summer and I should be dreaming of flip flops and sandals, but something about shoes like these pair with shorts and a distressed tee sounds so appealing to me right now. Could my blue hair have made me somewhat of a badass?

Not Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl author, Cecily von Ziegesar recently came out with a new book, Cum Laude, based on the lives of four college kids.

I originally purchased the book thinking that it was going to be simliar to Gossip Girl, but I was definately wrong. While the story itself was OK (and I do mean OK), it lacked the je ne sais quoi that had GG readers intrigued for years.



Love Her Style

I've been following Rumi's blog for quite some time now. While her style can sometimes be a bit too ball-sy for me, I do think that she creates great silhouettes and has amazing pieces. I would love to raid  her closet one day. Her style is very urban hipster, west coastish and hippie. I love it. Plus, her shoes are always killer. If I could trade shoe closets with someone for one day, it would definately be hears...although I would definately keep a few the next day.

Also, thumbs up to her boyfriend/photographer Colin. He takes great shots and I think it takes a lot for a boyfriend to follow around his girl with a camera snapping photos around town.

Love the site. Love the style. Love. It.

ps. I may or may not have been watching my DVDs of the Simple Life lately after work.
Chanel Particuliere. Just bought it yesturday and love it. It's a great summer color that combines darker hues and a "nude" feel.


The above image is of a new Urban Outfitters store. Unfortunately I cannot remember where this store is, but nevertheless, I still think it is pretty cool. It's different from every other kind of store in its genre and I like different.

A very lucky friend of mine is leaving tomorrow for NYC to take a course at Parson's. I am super jealous of her, but think she is going to have a fabulous time. She's getting an apartment down here and I'm sure will be living a glamourous life that should be documented by MTV camera's. I'll try not to hate her as I try to tame my frizzy hair caused by the wonderful rain and humidity in Toronto. But I still wish her the best of luck and will do an amazing job!

i'll be left alone forever with my magazines

Monday was most probably the slowest day of my week. Time seemed to go by so slowly and each time I looked at the clock, I learned only a minute or two had passed. Thankfully yesturday, Tuesday, I had more exciting plans. I was meeting up with some good friends who I had grown up with at Toronto's large theme park, Wonderland. Even though we all are in our 20s, working and technically adults, we spent the day in this odd time warp where we were still 15 and no time had passed. We rode the carousel, took goofy pictures of our shoes and laughed the entire day. It was so much fun to spend a day with no responsiblities, work, problems with the opposite sex, etc. Loved. It.

*Only flaw: I wore an Alexander Wang T-shirt and had it soaked through by the evening. I went for dinner with everyone wearing huge, majorly stained Juicy tracks I keep in my car only for emergencies and a baggy mens t-shirt. I looked ready for bed...


why can't you be blue over me?

My new hair color! I la-la-love it. You better believe I keep swishing my hair around and singing "I have blue hair." It's wonderful.


My summer shoe choices. Can't go wrong with some Sperry Top-Siders and Toms. Perfect for a weekend at the cottage or a day spent at the shops.


wanna do bad things to you.

So, as hopefully many of you know, Tru Blood Season 3 premiered on Sunday. To say the least, it was awesome. I'm not quite sure as to how I went 8 months without it. Yes, I am aware of how creepy and sexual the show is, but all I can say is that it keeps me entertained and intriqued, just like good television should.
Whenever I watch the show, I feel like slipping into a pair of Daisy Dukes or a flowery sundress and speak in a southern accent, a la Sookie Stackhouse.
Love the show, and hoping it keeps on coming!

i just can't seem to get rid of you.

Agness Deyn launched her online magazine this weekend, and I can say, I am a fan. The writing style isn't epic, but the products that are in it, are pretty good and I love the whole layout and look of the site. Another bonus to this type of magazine reading, is that I don't need to make a note of the sites and stores I want to check out, because they provide a link right too the stores as you are reading. The graphics and photography are amazing! I wonder when we are going to see Ms. Deyn herself featured in some of them!!

This week has already started off quite slow. I just feel tired all the time, but I think that's because of going to bed way past my bedtime. A good piece of news though, is that I am finished one of my most difficult projects of designing a store window! It was absolutely crazy work and I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted. I must say though, I couldn't have done anything without the help of Michelle over at JDK productions. She basically saved my life!

hanging out and stealing all the limelight

My cat can be a huge pain in the a**, but he has a cute face so it save him. I had spent so long trying to arrange these pictures to photograph them, but my cat came along and thought I had set up a little game for him and proceeded to scrample up all the pictures and ruin any hopes of mine for a good photo.

It's a rainy day in the city and my hair is just a ball of frizz. It's days like this that I wish I had silky straight hair. Days like this are just so cold and damp and messy. I've been cheering myself up with a Starbucks white mocha and some good old tunes from Bedouin Soundclash.


I've Met Vintage People

While I do like some of the newer pieces of jewelry around, I will always love vintage jewelry more. They just have so much more personality and are normally one of a kind. Most of the jewellry in my box are just random pieces that have built up and I have no clue where they are from. It adds some characteristic I think.

More and More

Here are some of the pieces I purchased at the H&M FAA party. Polvore was missing a few pieces including my FAVORITE sequined patterned vest.


a gloomy end to a gloomy week

I bought so many new things from H&M the other night and basically spent my entire paycheck. I've been itching to wear my new purchases, but it has been raining everyday this week and I am afraid to ruin it. Lame, I know. The weather is just so gloomy and gray that they only thing I really want to wear is a pair of free city track, an old sweater (preferrably an old school sweater or something borrowed from the boys) and my mocassins. That kind of sounds ideal right now.

ps. I am fully aware that the picture has absolutely no relevance to the text. I just like the ring a lot. I bought it in Costa Rica and it has barely left my hand since.


H&M Fashion Against Aids Launch Party

Last night I went to H&M's Toronto launch party for their Fashion Against Aids collection. It was an absolutely amazing night. They served free food and drinks and had special discounts on all their regualar priced merchandise. The best part of the evening though was a special performance by Bedouin Soundclash. They were phenominal to say the least. It was such a small stage and venue that it was kind of unbelievable. Anyway, so many people were there from the Toronto fashion industry including Sarah Nicole Prickett, Fashion Television, VJs from MTV and I'm sure more that I am forgetting. I bought so much from the collection it was insane! I took my sister as my plus 1 and everything we saw was thrown over our arms and purchased.
