2014 Home For The Holidays Preview Featuring The Fashion Stir Fry
Christmas sure came early in Toronto on Wednesday when i was invited to, and attended the #home4theholidays preview at the Soho Metropolitan Hotel. Besides the fact that i look like i just got out bed, the event was amazing, featuring stocking stuffer ideas, gift ideas, winter weather wear, home and away festive must-haves. It was such a beautiful event and presentation, i couldn't resist taking some photos and video to share with you all.

Featured, were brands like:
Addition Elle- Canada's leading trendsetter in plus sized market for over thirty years.

Soft Lips- The ultra hydrating and deliciously flavored lip balm presented their CUBE, 5 in 1 lip care with lip protecting technology. The berry was my favorite. Loved their creative ideas and presentation. I think the Cube is so cute. Meanwhile, when i the tried to open it i was pulling at the cap instead of twisting it open. Oh emm gee, i was so embarrassed...hehehe.

Viva Blanca which is an online retailer for women's fashion jewelries, provides customers with top quality products. Rimowa and Papyrus were also there but the one presentation that i thought was really fun to watch was, the Conair hair stylist curl a model's hair with the Curl Secret by Conair Canada.

I have read and heard so many interesting reviews on this curler and i would like to hear yours too. For those of you who haven't heard of Curl Secret, i was able to catch a short video of the presentation  on tape below for you :).  Conair Canada caters to the needs of Canadians by providing them with new and innovative tools to redefine their style from hair to wardrobe. Well, watch and tell me what you think?

After the event we were given some goodies by the brands to keep. Fun, fun, fun. Thanks to all the brands and the amazing team at Brill Communications for making us feel so welcome there, for organizing such a beautiful event and for all the great stuff.

Well, that was what my day on Wednesday looked like.  Hope you all enjoyed it as much as i did.

Before i learned how to wear heels the first kind of shoes i mastered without even learning were flip flops.

There is really nothing i can possibly tell you today about flip flops that you don't already know, but what if they are sunkissed by uv rays? Yeah, i mean like the straps do change colors in sunlight. Fun, right? Then meet my pair of Calimojos- Color changing flip flops with great comfort. They are manufactured in Brazil and they come in the prettiest of colors. My pair is the Butterfly Pattern in pink and it is too cute :)). Totally inspired by the sun and the ocean breeze from Brazil to California. Cool!!

Growing up in the tropics, i wore them everyday to the beach, to play hide and seek or whatever trouble i could get myself into as kid. I still wear them today even at home. I have flip flops for outdoors and indoors. They travel with me anywhere and everywhere i go because you really can't trade comfort for anything else.

Wow, i really can't thank you all enough for the amazing words of encouragement and congratulatory messages i got from everyone from everywhere on my last post. I had to take a couple of days to reorganize myself because i have a few exciting projects in works to share with you all very soon.

Meanwhile, i may have just come to the conclusion styling some of my favorite summer outfits like this romper almost feels like i have to depend on less clothing and let the accessories do the work. I am sure this pair of mirrored interchangeable sunglasses by Kameleonz looks familiar to most of you, but since i have had them, they have become my go to whenever i need an easy, quick and instant chic fix. They are so stylish to the core.

THE CLASSIC BLACK & WHITE OUFIT: 2 SUMMERLICIOUS WAYS
Just as much as i love my colorful outfits, i do tend to fall right into the classic black and white pieces very quickly and easily. Wearing these two colors together are undeniably a perfect match made in fashion heaven. If there are any two colors that will fall into every and any dress code these two colors are so easily acceptable.

When a company i once worked for, expressed our office outfits had to be neutrals, i would often buy white shirts in different shapes and sizes to match them with black bottoms, period. Why? Because it was easy and quick. Once it came to the weekends, i almost didn't want to have anything to do with those colors until Monday morning again. They were work uniforms. The fact is, it was just impossible. I love these two classic colors. Soon enough, i found ways to incorporate these pieces into my everyday look, especially on a beautiful summer day.

LOOK #1: Office Hour To Happy Hour
When a long day or week at work calls for some cocktails or just a time to let off some steam and socialize after work, that quick switch of outfit into chic mode status is always needed. All it takes is a nanosecond to unbutton the blazer or jacket worn over the top. Leaving that blazer behind in the car or just letting it hang off somewhere gives this white strapless crop top and black high waisted shorts i have on, a time to shine.

LOOK #2: Beach To Street
I am wearing a beach wear cover up top as a regular top. I paired it with a pair of printed pants for some drama and fun. The cool thing about this look is i can easily wear my swimwear (in black probably) underneath while laying on a beach or i could simply take it to streets and own it which was what i did.

Sequin Hearts Dress
A girls night out should be just as fun as the outfit. No?

Hahaha, i won't even bother telling you about my experiences on a girls night out with my friends. Talk about fun and craaazy times!! (In that Oprah kinda voice). Anyway, when the sweet blogger duo, Zoha and Fatima, reached out to me for a "Girls Night Out" Outfit collaboration, i was super honored by this and sweet of them. I immediately started thinking of an outfit idea. While trying to finalize a look, i realized it had been a while since i went on one and i may be a little rusty in picking out the perfect outfit :)).

Since a night out with the babes is always high on oestrogen, i guess it calls for a night to shine, to be confident, sexy, chic.... and maybe even bring on the glitter. This glittery one shoulder bodycon gold dress was my final pick. I can't deny how flattering the fitting of of dress is, and the length is just so ideal. The only things was, it had so much glitter on it that at the end of the shoot, my entire body was covered from hair to toe, i looked like fire works in heels.
Fashion Bloggers
The lovely Zoha says, she was going for a wild girls night out look while Fatima says, she decided on a sweet and informal look. Very lovely girls with distinct style. They are best friends who blog together.

Floral Print Skater Dress
Because it is Friday, we all know the best way to end a crazy week or start a lovely weekend well is going shopping.

Okay, maybe it's just me.... Well, you can agree with me when i say, while shopping, even better is not only finding an outfit that can be worn anywhere and everywhere, but one that makes you and your bank account happy.

This week on "Chic For Cheap Series", i am featuring, yes, another dress. Hey, if you love dresses like i do, you know you can never have too many dresses in your closet. Most especially if they are just suitable for as many occasions as you can possibly have. Floral prints will never go out of fashion and a skater dress is fun, flirty and sweet.  So my #FabFindFriday this week was from Marshalls which is part of TJ Maxx where you can get designer brands for less. They had quite a large collection of floral print dresses on their racks but you may have to go into the nearest location to you to check 'em out since they don't sell online. Meanwhile, if you would rather shop online TJ Maxx has a few pretty ones similar to mine on sale.

Overall Dress by Ali & Kris
The last time i wore an overall dress, it had nothing to do with fashion.

In junior high school we were made to wear plain green modest overall dresses as part of our school uniform but once we became seniors we had to switch to skirts. Being a school uniform, it had to be below the knees and definitely not hip hugging tight or pencil, but loose and A-lined. "Ugh, really?" We actually called it a pinafore and we wore a white blouse with it. Ever since my junior days, i have never looked back at overall dresses until now.

Although, i thought it was really cute, I was still not convinced about this floral print overall. I just couldn't see past how really childish it might look, especially on my petite self. All i could think of was how to style it to be more grown up or mature. Styling it with the tube crop top was my first attempt to mixing the cute in it with some edgy appeal of the crop top and heels. Boy, did i fall in love.... I guess, it is okay to give that sweet kiddie side in all of us a chance.
