I’m usually pretty classic when it comes to sunglasses frames, as I tend to buy investment sunnies that will remain classics for years. Think tortoise shell, aviators, black, silver, cat eye, etc. It’s only recently that I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and experimented with colour and prints.


One of my favourite brands for classic frames with a playful twist is Kate Spade, available at IRIS the Visual Group. She’s the queen of fun elements like colour, glitter, patterns and embellishments. When I tried on these black and white striped sunglasses, I immediately felt playful, confident, and a wee bit sassy. They add that perfect classic-yet-trendy, cool-girl, splash-of-fun to any simple outfit. Plus, I received like 4 compliments on the subway, so that’s a pretty big confidence boost right there.





Thank you to IRIS the Visual Group for partnering on this post!

Fall 2014 Trends: Black & White Grid Print

I’m a big fan of graphic prints.  I don’t think I’ve ever met a stripe or polka dot that I didn’t like.  It’s therefore expected that black and white grid print, a huge trend for Fall 2014, would be right up my alley.  I’ve recently purchased an Old Navy dress (you can see it in my post “NYC Gridlock”), and a great pair of Gap cropped pants (in navy).  A windowpane print pair of black & white pumps, and a check patterned silk blouse are also on my wish list.


Today, I’m honoured to be guest posting for the super sweet Amy from Leopard and Lillies as she makes her big move from Dubai to San Francisco.  I’m wearing my Gap grid print cropped pants in my guest post, so if you’re interested in checking them out, please head over to Leopard and Lillies.  Are you loving this print as much as I am?  Have you purchased anything grid print this season?  Please do share!
