NYC Summers

I'm going home to Canada for a month on Wednesday. I'm super excited to see my family and escape out to the country and quiet for a few weeks. So far, when I look back at my pictures, I'd say I have had a pretty fantastic summer! So many beach days, so many free summer concerts & street festivals - so many visitors & wild nights. I'm excited for my upcoming Canadian summer adventures & insta-shots!

On The Way Out


Just me running out the door to meet R. in Soho (and my messy studio space -ahem)!

Being a model is sooooo hard.

Regardless, whatever they are selling, I am buying.

Braids & Black Silk


Hey gang, it's been a while!

This is a pretty typical look for me. Black silk & my favourite necklace & the perfect little bag. I got this AMAZING silk dress at our very own and very Canadian shop, Aritzia. The new SOHO location is absolutely stunning - they really pulled out all the stops when they were designing the space. I was elated when I saw the signs of "Opening Soon" on the windows  -  I really must say I kept thinking to myself how I must visit the Aritzia shop when I was back in Canada, because I actually missed their clothing so much. My wish was answered and I went into the shop on the opening day & picked up this dress. Love it.

Oh, and lookie who showed up in the Aritzia email & blog?... it's me! This is how the celebrities must feel like, totally paparazzied!

Thanks to Lindsey for having that keen eye and noticing me! I actually did get this email in my inbox and scanned it quickly, not even noticing myself in it. I have always thought of myself as someone who pays attention to details, but apparently I am wrong.


 I'm super excited about this, you guys.... I FINALLY OPENED MY ETSY SHOP! It's been a long time in the making, but I did it! I must say I'm quite proud of myself. I cannot explain how hard it is designing something and then putting your baby out in the public despite fears of no one liking it. I have a lot of moments of "Oh man, I am a weirdo. Is this actually nice? Will anyone get it?" and the answer might be "No", but then again, it might be "Yes" or "Maybe"  so I need to just take the chance, right? RIGHT!

Anyway, here's my store! Yay! Clickity!

Hope you all had a great Canada Day or July 4th long weekend! I spent my Canada Day driving 8 hours in thick traffic to the Canadian border to apply for an extension on my visa so I could stay longer in this fine Country. After much explaining (nothing is ever easy at border control) I'm good to go for a full year! Hurrah! Really was a great weekend for me!
