Buy The Way: Pins And Patches

You can’t spell opinion without PIN. So, what we’re trying to say is that if you have an opinion, you should be wearing a pin (or a patch, but that didn’t really fit in with the word play).

Pins and patches make great statement pieces for bags, clothes or whatever you feel like attaching them to. Whether you want to show off your love for Migos or just good ole’ bacon, there’s a pin or patch out there for you. Click through for a buying guide of some of our faves!

Hayley Elsaesser Talks Fashion, Diversity and Loving Your Body

For Canadian designer Hayley Elsaesser, fashion has always been about being bold and standing out from the crowd.

Elsaesser’s career started in Brisbane, Australia where she studied fashion and got the opportunity to showcase her eccentric designs at Melbourne Fashion Week. With that, the Hayley Elsaesser brand was born and has since become a go-to celebrity style favourite. Her designs have been worn by Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lilly Singh and even by etalk reporter Liz Trinnear.

To celebrate her dreamy new collection ~ Verona Beach ~ in stores and online now, we caught up with her to learn more about the collection, her favourite pieces and what role diversity plays in her brand.

Expessions of My Love for Patrick J. Adams Via Haikus

I have a mega crush on mega babe Patrick J. Adams AKA Mike Ross on the TV series Suits. Not only does he have a really great face, but Pat Adams is also a photographer, actor, great guy, etc. When he’s not busy closing deals as Mike Ross, he spends his days strolling down Queen Street West and picnicking in Toronto parks. (Do I know too much? Is this creepy yet??) But sadly, Patrick and I will never be together cuz he’s happily engaged to cool girl, Troian Bellisario *siiiiighhhhhhhh*

Still, I am mad crushing on this man. We’re both from Toronto and we both like art, so Pat Adams, if you’re out there; enjoy these haikus I wrote to express my luv for you… read more…

Mosh Pit Diaries : #RIOTFEST w/ Rubber Converse All Star

Eyyy SO GUESS WHAT?! We sent Rosanna and new/yung blood (lol) Carrie to #RIOTFEST with a pair of Converse (each) and lots and lots of enthusiasm.

When the aforementioned opportunity came to fruition, I ran into the studio screaming, out of breath, “YOU SHOULD WRITE A POST AND TITLE IT ~THE MOSH PIT DIARIES!” Though I was fully expecting a couple of sullen faces staring back at me, I was pleasantly surprised to have my enthusiasm reciprocated: and thus, here are the comprehensive chronicles of two girls, two pairs of rubber sneakers, and more than two good t00nz. read more…

Street Style Lookbook: The Hardest Button To Button

So I might be the farthest human from Jack White, but I’m going to take a gander and say the top button really IS the hardest to button – especially after eating that 2L tub of ice cream. Anyway.

Whether they’re in the form of pins, or more traditionally nestled on a pair of denim shorts or a fun (and also #academic) varsity jacket, let’s take a moment and give thanks for buttons! *prayer hands emoji* They might be a little tricky to navigate first thing in the morning, but they sure do look snazzy – and aesthetics is all that we really care about anyway, yeah? read more…

Rapper 2 Watch: Derek Wise

derek-wise

The rap game is a tricky one – and I know this because my rap career fizzled out after just a few short months (heh lol jks). But seriously, one thing I do know is that it’s easy to get swallowed up by ~da game~, but it’s extremely hard to stand out. However, it seems that 22-year-old Derek Bissue (Stage name Derek Wise) is doing just that – his unique sound, reminiscent of an extra-dark, extra-trippy A$AP Mob – is making big waves and rendering him one to watch within the realm of rap music. Here are 3 tidbits of info you should know about him: read more…

Street Style Lookbook: Last of Winter (Hopefully)

Ever since the month changed from March to April on my iCal, I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed that the sun makes prolonged appearances and the negative climates turn into…not negative climates. While winter coats, scarves and hats are great and perfect and nice, I’m looking forward to a wardrobe chock full of non-woolen garb. read more…
