  • Ursa Major + Jewelry on the Runway

    A while back, my dear friend Imke designed and made a beautiful collection of lingerie and leather jackets for Arts & Fashion Week Toronto.  Her line was incredible and the fact that she sewed everything herself speaks to her talents (and possibly her craziness!).  She needed some jewelry for the runway show and I created a mini collection for her that I continued and expanded for this store because I loved it so much.  Here are some of the images from the post-runway shoot, most of the jewelry you can find in the shop and you can check out the uber-amazing Imke here.
    Shop the Ursa Major+ Jewelry Collection here, or clicking on the image will take you to that particular piece of jewelry.  As always, I recognize that all bodies are beautiful and diverse, so size customization is available for most pieces at no extra charge.

  • OOTD Summertime Velvet

    This weekend Ron and I kicked off our week-long concert marathon by seeing The XX at The Phoenix. They set the tone pre-show by filling up the theater with what seemed like record-breaking amounts of dry ice and gothic lighting. So feeling inspired in the midst of a pastel/floral/neon/sunshine-y summer, I busted out my black velvet skirt and my moon print tank from my first Ursa Major collection.

    As always, piled on the jewellery like there's no tomorrow. The necklace is vintage chain and crystal from the last Hibou Accessories collection that I did and the rest I've accumulated over my years of fashion hoarding.

    Used to be more self-conscious about showing my whole back but now I just say "fuck it, this is my body right now and it's awesome" and wear the shit out of see-through, low cut things. There's not enough time in my life for hate!

    I love these shoes! They were stupid cheap at Value Village and even though they destroy my feet, they are so legit 80's. Outfit details:

    Sunglasses/Glasses (stolen from my true love) - Zenni Optical
    Tank - Ursa Major+
    Skirt - Thrifted
    Shoes - Thrifted
    Jewellery - Hibou Accessories & various
    Nail Polish - OPI Charged up Cherry & Maybelline Porcelain Party

    Hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
