My life, My room...




I recently realised that it has been a while since I've posted something...
I guess it's because I keep hoping that the good weather will come back so I can't step out of the white walls of my basement as my photo shoot set...Lately my body has been slacking off and simply letting the laziness take its place in my mind.... I've also been fixing some of my professional archives (sketching, resume, portfolio etc) and working... (nothing out of the usual)

As for my blogger life it's been quite inactive and I've been procrastinating for the most part. Sometimes, I simply feel lazy or I take a drive down the hatred road against the ordinary underachieved fashion industry in Montreal. I hate to sound like a total hater but I'm seriously getting tired of how so many people in the fashion industry (here in Montreal) are unprofessional yet have achieved some level of success because they have some type of connections. I'm simply fed up of how the fashion industry is poorly managed in Montreal thus is not beneficial for the local designers or it's contributors.
As a blogger I'm sure I could be much more aggressive in the social media platforms and have many more followers but in my defense I'd like to say I support true talent and those that deserve the recognition. I also haven't made my blog an advertisement campaign and so far I only promote products I truly believe in and that I use.

Anyways enough trash talking about fashion and I hope you enjoy the pictures I took of my room...
I didn't take that many because to be honest it's a mess... I have piles of Vogue magazines and some are laying a bit everywhere... they have multiple uses... I also changed my phone and finally got an iPhone... It's not the most recent but in the end it's a phone right? Not a portable laptop....As you may know by now I love candies and I have many of them in my room... and as always the countless accessories I own...

Look of the Day: Gold knit







Winter is almost over and I'm more than happy to see a bit of sun after work! I love both spring and fall because you can walk around with a light jacket, wear nice shoes or boots without dying of heat like in the summer or freezing your ass like in winter. I'm truly excited for the countless trends that are coming out for this season. A lot of shimmer, checkered patterns, patterned leggings and so many nice shoes :)

I finally wore one of my precious necklaces from Zara. This statement necklace is slightly heavy but is beautifully adorned with colorful beads and I thought it would work well with my gold knit! I found this knit at a random Asian clothing boutique that only carries one size clothes?!?! They stated that most Asian girls are petite... hmm? I bought this fall/winter jacket at Mango and it has been the cheapest yet most formal jacket I have... and my purse, well of course that is Matt & Nat... I only buy my handbags from them because they literally last FOREVER! Worth your money and did I forget to mention they are 100% eco-friendly?

Artist: Ivy Rotchin

 Showcasing pieces with bold fashion statements, colorful compositions and impressive line illustrations are part of the creations that Ivy Rotchin expresses in her art. Exposing the delicacy of a woman's face lines with fashion's powerful edgy features; simultaneously combining countless colors with different textures, strokes and shades. This talented Montrealer, is continuously seeking new horizons for inspiration and some her main sources derive from magazines, photo shoots, runways and numerous galleries. Ivy is actively involved in Montreal's fashion scene and her intense passion for human's beauty and fashion is vividly expressed in her artwork. Some her artwork has been in various exhibitions around Montreal and some her work has been featured in renown fashion sites such as Vogue Italia.

Here are some of my personal favorite pieces from Ivy Rotchin's pieces. *




While viewing some of her pieces, I instantly felt drawn to them and I simply felt the duty to feature her in my blog. Last year at fashion week, while searching for some eye catching street style , I luckily caught Ivy's outfit and I could sense a great energy from her. Her charisma and enthusiast to know more about my blog, gave me a great vibe! I'm truly fascinated by her art and even more glad to see that Montreal has a couple of art gems under the sleeve.
