Black skinny jeans to me are like what a little black dress is to a woman—The go to garment you can always rely on.

You can dress it up with a blazer and a smart pair of polished lace-up shoes or on the go with a racer jacket and sneakers—plain black skinny jeans are a staple in my closet and is something I know will work with every outfit that I put on.

I don't swear by or is loyal to any particular brand when it comes to them but I am however, extremely finicky when it comes to the fit. I have giant calves like a kick boxer but a dainty small waist like a ballerina. Shopping for jeans is definitely a frustration but I love the utter feeling of satisfaction when I slip into a pair that fits so perfect, it feels like it was made for me. *Swipe*Swipe* Charge it on my Visa, I'll skip a handful of meals to have enough money to deal with the bill when it comes later.

Like I've said before many times on my blog, it's not about the label thats sewn inside your clothes, it's about the fit.

My current admiration are these pair of black skinny 'Bradys' from Parasuco. A nice mid-rise fit, tapered leg, nice coated finish, tonal stitching, incredibly comfortable and most importantly, it fits superbly. Major love from me to everyone at Parasuco.

And for all you denim lovers out there, 'LIKE' Parasuco's Facebook page NOW and be eligible to win a summer shopping spree with Parasuco this season. Check it.

LOOK! THE PHOTO ABOVE! I'm actually laughing in a picture. It's proof that I'm not an emotionless robot with one chronic bitch facial expression in all my photos taken on my blog. I don't smile much in my photos nor do I ever…like EVER show my pearly whites on camera but don't let that illustrate to you that I'm expressionless or cold because if anything, I have more emotions than a sorority house full of girls all on their period.

It should be captured on camera more often but I've learned to smile more in person. Smiling is the best accessory anyone can have, even better than any covet Chanel bag you could be seen carrying. It attracts people—magnetizes them actually. So smile, because it's the second best thing you can do with your lips. ;)

Photos taken by Alex & Matina over brunch that also included Lily & myself. Hung over brunches with a group of beautiful ladies like this never looked so damn good. And if you aren't following these girls and their stylishly inspirational blogs, you should definitely start now.

West Coast Style X The Starving Stylist

Above is a segment that I was recently featured in on West Coast Style with the lovely Mana Mansour on Shaw TV channel 4 in Vancouver. This segment is Part 2 of a GQ makeover (Watch Part 1 HERE) that I gave on a our very handsome volunteer, James—who was such a good sport that was willing to try on anything I threw on him.

I give pointers and style tips in this menswear clip and hopefully it will help all you gentlemen out there when putting an outfit together and when you go shopping. Just remember, that it's not about the label thats sewn inside your clothes, it's about the fit.

On another note, I want to give a million thanks to Mana, the host of West Coast Style. Thank you for giving me this opportunity and for being so supportive, encouraging and especially patient with me when I would [many times] blank out in front of camera during filming—You're a sweetheart and one of the most genuine people I know.

This was one of my very first time filming on camera and Lord knows, maybe after [A LOT] more practice, maybe I'll be on some show one day. . .*ahem* yea. . .probably on the D-List or Celebrity Rehab.

Anyways, thank you for watching!
