Like a student in school, I myself took a vacation from blogging this past summer.

For those who blog and can relate, blogging takes a lot of time in ones day and is much more work than one may think—From editing to the photo shoot down to the writing and the publishing, a 2 minute read of a blog entry can easily be a handful of hours worth of effort in ones day.

With that said, I want to say thank you so much for those readers who have continued to follow my little blog here and who actually take time to read what I write even if it may be just nonsense and gibberish. Thank you.

So now since class is back in session, The Starving Stylist will be back to it's regular programming....so stay tuned for more.

To toast summer in style, I attended Peroni Nastro Azzurro's annual Terrazza Di Peroni event last week at the TIFF Bell Lightbox's Malaparte patio in Downtown Toronto.

I'm no stranger to this fabulous event because I've attended the Vancouver editions in the past years, but this was my first time attending in Toronto and with so much vivacious energy this city already has to offer, I knew this intimate evening was going to be a stellar time.

Incredibly good looking people, perfectly chilled beer, a wonderful Art Series by some Canadian Luminaries, a fantastic live band, a delectable gelato bar and spectacular views of Downtown Toronto's skyscrapers and famous architectural monuments—What a great way to spend a fabulous summer evening. Cheers.

Imagine a room full of designer treasures from Balenciaga to Chanel. A room where delectable treats make your mouth water and glasses of vino are constantly topped up while conversation and laughter is filled by some very well-dressed beautiful people—This room was Haute Classic's Summer 2014 Media Preview event.

Alongside some of Toronto's favourite female fashion bloggers: the beautiful Jenny of Crazy Style Love and the stunning Dani from Girls of TO, we featured some of our favourite top picks from the great designer consignment store.

A big shout out and thank you again to Jacky, Jina, Stella and the rest of the wonderful crew at Haute Classics for having me be apart of such fabulous occasion!

I had such a fantastic time and met a lot of kind and genuine individuals that evening, which I hope to see again soon!

 Also, don't forget to check out Haute Classics' debut issue of their new e-magazine, The Haute Curator—Which also includes a small cameo of yours truly! Check it out here.

A Summer in Haute Classics

THEORY v-neck long-sleeve striped knit; TOM FORD 'Campbell' sunglasses; PRADA wingtip creepers; LOUIS VUITTON cornflower blue cropped trousers.


Summer is my favourite season—It's the season of sunny vacations and weekend get-aways out of town. So with that said, one should always have great outfits packed in your weekender bag like the one above, which was curated by yours truly from the fabulous boutique, Haute Classics Designer Consignment in Toronto.

I had the pleasure of popping into Haute Classics for a visit recently and my oh my were my eyes feasted with designer goodies from one end of the shop to the other—I was a grown up kid in a designer 'candy' shop! From a table of luxurious Hermes silk scarves neatly folded to a wall of quilted Chanel beauties to another wall filled with high-heeled red-sole head turners—There were just so many gorgeous treasures everywhere you turned.

Aside from the fantastic selection of designer womenswear, accessories and more recently some menswear, the staff was delightful, quick and helpful, which is so wonderful for someone like myself who totally has ADHD and gets easily distracted by shiny things or anything with a label on it.

So if you are ever in the Toronto area, I highly recommend checking out Haute Classics for some great designer consignments, but you can also check them out online and on Instagram.

Days Off Duty

What I have learned as I've gotten older (and somewhat wiser...or I like to think so) is that I will often now favour comfort over fashion when it comes to the way I dress—But don't get me wrong, that certainly does not mean I will ever hang up my Louboutins and opt for a pair of Crocs instead!

What I mean is that no one should have to sacrifice their comfort in order to look good. Sure, I still think someone in sky-high stilettos is ultra fabulous but when that person is teetering around uncomfortably and bumping into objects like a bull in China shop, that ultimately isn't quite a good look at all whatsoever.

I'm a strong believer that confidence is the best accessory one could possibly have and it is something that never goes out of style... oh... that and a quilted leather Chanel bag, but confidence in whatever you are wearing is always comfortable and will ache a lot less than a pair of narrow Italian-made leather designer shoes.
