NEW YEAR'S EVE IN STYLE

The need to wear something both dramatic yet saccharine for the New Year's eve explains my affinity towards extremely full skirts (the puffier, the better).
This sweet dress with a light-as-a-feather tulle skirt in feminine mini-length is my option for the big night with a smoky eye and a lightly tinted lip that completes the look. 
Thanks to Carrie Bradshow for making us understand why this look has become such a classic – and not as costume-y as one might think. 

Have a great year ahead my dears!
 Wishing you a double dose of health and happiness topped with loads of good fortune.
Happy New Year!!!

FALL RECAP



A beautiful Fall is behind us and I decided to collect all of the outfits I wore this past season and share them again with you as a reminder of my style which has rapidly evolved since I started blogging.
 One thing is for sure, colors and prints are my style trademark :-)
I will be extremely happy to know your opinions and your favorite outfit.
Merry Christmas! 
Wishing you a holiday season filled with happy moments and rich blessings!
Yours,
M

WINDOW PRINT DRESS

 
This outfit is definitely not the one you would normally wear in December but I decided to post it since Winter officially started only a day ago :-)

TOMBOY

When wearing a menswear-influenced outfit I usually try to mix it up with feminine items such as (in this case) heels, skirts, jewelry or lipstick. 
Try pairing a denim shirt with masculine tweed check jacket to create an interesting contrast and don’t be afraid of a little color.
Makeup and hair are easy areas to add a womanly touch – and remember good, delicate posture and female mannerisms help you look less like a man and more like a dainty woman.

How do you like this outfit? Do you wear masculine-oriented clothes?
Love,
M

SATURDAY BRUNCH

For a quick brunch with my friends I wanted to feel comfy but I also wanted to add some sophistication to my outfit (as I always do :-) 
I opted for my favorite jean jacket that I wore HERE and heels for a more sassy look.
Jean jackets can look just as cute in winter as they do on the summer. Simply style up your outfit with fall colors. Throw on a turtleneck to keep warm, add your favorite bag and your favorite shoes (in my case these adorable J.Crew jade pumps) to complete the outfit.

Have a great weekend my dears!
PS. How cute is this holiday coffee cup? :-)
Love,

COOL IN THE (ENGLISH) COUNTRY

This fall, it's all about heritage-style dressing. Taking cues menswear, the look evokes fishing and hunting outfits from the turn of the 20th century, including fair isle sweaters, jodhpurs and plaid, plaid, plaid.
 The rich and fresh hue of this hunter green vest makes a statement. This color acts great as a neutral in your wardrobe anyway you wear it, whether it's in shoes, clothes, belt or even a handbag.
Lace-up, hiking boot inspired shapes at various heights are key to pulling off this trend.
I'm leaving you now with the pictures while I'm gone to experience the joy of a crisp fall morning over a couple dogs, or in a stand :-))
Love,

FEMME FATALE

Ever seen females who are seductive and alluring, yet clever, a bit evil, and mysterious? The type of woman who is sultry, mysteriously sexy, vampy, and just ultra glam?
Femme fatale literally means "fatal woman" in French. According to the movie Mildred Pierce, it can be defined as "the kind of woman men want...but shouldn't have!". Like Poison Ivy or Cat Woman..
Her wardrobe often has an evening edge, even during the daytime.. A femme fatale is sexy but in a classy way.
 Every woman has the potential to appear this way if she wishes. You can become one too! If you'd truly like to become a femme fatale, you should have a mind of your own, and develop your own ideas of what a fatal woman is.
Meet mine today :-)

Love,

COZY IN NEUTRALS

You know that my personal preferences are fresh bold colors as they make me feel alive and I choose to wear out all sorts of unusual color combinations that others might fear to try. 
Mixing it up is something that appeals to me, it makes me think.. 
This post might be the perfect one for those of you who like the simpleness and class of neutrals colorsNo spending lots of time worrying about if colors go together or not, with neutrals you can never go wrong.
For today's outfit I've chosen a bomber jacket, a pair of over the knee ivory textured socks as they provide warmth and make a striking fashion statement and a white shirt infuses a touch of sophistication. After all, truly creative dressing is all about: attention-grabbing details, that show you've thought about the way you mixed things up.

Remember, fashion should be about expressing yourself so always wear the shades that you love, or that show your personality.
Love,
M
PS. If you're wondering what's on my face in the first pic, it's just the light that hit a white wall and reflected on my face :-)

TEENY TINY HOUNDSTOOTH

For today's look I wanted to amp up the prep, so I pulled on this red and blue hounds-tooth Juicy Couture fitted blazer. Its menswear feel combined with its fitted cut make it surprisingly flirty. 
I love how charming hounds tooth merges with playful checks and solid trim creates a structured outline. 
I avoid wearing it with navy, although that’s the obvious choice so I tried it today with electric blue skinny jeans for a more youthful vibe.
This blazer would be great for the office too with a pencil skirt or trousers.

What do you think?
Love,
M

AIN'T NO SUNSHINE

These photos were taken in the middle of the day, around 2 p.m. and they look like they were taken at dark. Grrrhh!! 
If there is no sun, the light is very flat and unfortunately I don't get to choose days with great weather, which can make a real difference to the quality of the images.
I have to admit that I don't enjoy taking pictures on days like this...at all..
If I picked neutral colors for today's outfit, the pics would be sooo boring!
Luckily, there is a lot going on.. stripes, dots, pink, mint, green...  you name it :-)
Have a great week everyone!
Love,
M

HAREM PANTS

I got this pants as a gift and I didn't like them at first. They have been sitting in my closet for a while as I wasn't sure what to combine them with. 
This model is popularly called harem pants, they are usually made of lightweight fabrics and you have to be very careful how you style them as they visually shorten your legs.
I first tried them with a leather jacket.. not bad but I had a more formal look in mind.. Something that can be worn in office or perhaps to a business meeting.
So I pulled out my white blouse-a white blouse will always make you look neat and fresh... I added a trendy necklace, high heels and voila! I am all ready for work! :-)
What do you think?

WHISKERS

Hi my ladies!!
You all know how much I like to dress up but I'm also relishing every opportunity I get to dress down. As I often say though, dressing down doesn't have to mean looking slobby. 
   There's something comforting about simple outfits and warm cardigans, especially when the weather is as abysmal as it's been lately. 

I hope you all like this cozy and comfortable outfit of the day! 
Love,
M

ROYAL DALMATIAN

Hi ladies!
I got this amazing dalmatian print coat on sale from Banana Republic and can't tell you enough how happy I am!! It's very attractive and fits perfectly.
You know when you put on certain clothes and the same moment you feel really confident and great? Well this coat is definitely one the pieces that makes me feel like that! It makes me feel like royalty! :-)

Waiting for you comments..
Love and kisses,

LAYER UP!

Yaaayyy!! Today the Sun has finally decided to pay us a visit and no one is happier than me... I am definitely a Sun addict :-) 
The day was just beautiful so I took my bare legs out for a walk :-)) 
If the weather lets you keep your coat in the back of your closet for a little while longer, try trendy layers. They will give the right kind of volume and interest to an outfit without drowning you.
Have a great weekend my dear ladies and thank you so very much for all the support, follows, likes and lovely comments!
Love,
M

FALL LEAVES

It’s gotten quite chilly here in Toronto and we haven’t seen Sun for a while.. . The perfect time to pull out the short red coat out of my wardrobe.
The vivid red of the wool brings out the green in my eyes and I feel the Sun within :-)
I really love wearing red-red lipstick, red shoes, red coats.. it’s the color of blood, the color of pulsing life..
 So… My little coat and I will be definitely thriving all throughout the fall and winter, a bright red spark in a sea of boring black and grey coats :-)
Let's not forget the pointy stiletto which is back in a big way this season. This black toe detail—a modern take on the color-blocking trend, makes this pair quite unique.
Love,
M

BIG BUN

Hello my fashionistas ;-) 
Today I want to show you that you can dress casually and look glamorous at the same timeKnowing how to add the correct accessories and style your hair will be key to making you look glamorous and confident.
I believe that the hairstyle plays a significant role in giving the final touch to your look as hairstyles and clothes complete each other in order to create a balanced, harmonious look. Depending on the outfit you are wearing, you should consider choosing the appropriate hairstyle. 
The big bun I'm wearing today was crucial for today's image as a whole. Do you agree with me? ;-)
Love,

STEVE MADDEN COAT

Hey my ladies,
I bought this double breasted trench coat the other day and from the moment I put it on I knew I had to take it home with me :-))
It's so classy, so chic.. 
Faux-leather sleeves and trim lend eye-catching contrast to this richly detailed trench with gleaming goldtone hardware. 
The skirt is very trendy, I like its fullness and it matched perfectly with this outfit.
Hope you like it too.
Love and kisses,
Maya

AFTER THE RAIN

"Rain, rain go away come again another day... " 
Hello my ladies!! :-))
Just a few words.. You know I love to mix colors and prints so I've chosen dots and stripes for this rainy day. This is a very classic look that will make a day like this a little brighter.
Love and kisses,
M

SQUIRREL

Another casual look for a beautiful fall day which I spent with my good friend squirrel :-))
She (or he) was in a good mood for posing with me for this photo shoot. Even though it was hard to get her to come close to me I patiently waited.
 She couldn't resist delicious cashews (my favorite snack) which I had in my bag and eventually came to say hi 
:-))
As for the outfit... You've already seen this jacket in one of my previous posts. As I mentioned before, camo print is very easy to combine with everything. 
Love,
M

LADYLIKE

My ladies,
If you are looking to heat things up in the wardrobe department this season add a hit of fur to with an faux fur stole. 
I've chosen to mix it up with this oxblood leather skirt and a wide brimmed hat to get the perfect ladylike look.

What do you think? I'm waiting for your comments :-))
Love,
M

IT'S A JUNGLE OUT THERE

Hiii!!!
I'm greeting you today with a look that's little different than usual. I like to experiment with different styles and play with my clothes so I don't get bored.
Here's a very prominent '80s look with a few modern details- baroque print on my turtleneck and animal print on my shoes.
For a metallic piece of clothing like this jacket add vibrant colour, embellished extras and print for a sleek take on '80s dressing. 
How do you like this style? Would you wear it?
Love,
M

SEDUCTIVE HEELS

Hi ladies!!
It's the beginning of the week and I'm proudly presenting you my new yellow heels. Aren't they amazing?? :-) 
Heels like these will add a stark dose of chic to any outfit and the graphic trench will make you look polished.
And don't forget...Wear your hair!! It is your greatest accessory ;-)
Have a happy Monday!!

CAMO PANTS

Helloooo everyone!!!
How was your week? Mine was quite busy, so I took a day off yesterday :-) Hope you don't mind, we bloggers are people too :-)) 
Today's look- camouflage print .. the trend which has made a huge comeback this season. 
These studded pants are easy to combine with everything and they can be styled both chic & sporty. The only thing that differentiates these two are accessories. 
You can also combine them with more colors, but always add at least one or two black pieces of clothing- camo prints need black!
I opted for a chic look today... how do you like it?
Love,
M

HURRICANE

I know, I know... You're probably getting fed up of me talking about wind :-) Well I am sorry but this one is hard not to mention as it was a HURRICANE !!!  :-))
I literally had to fight it, I almost flew awaaayyyy ;-)
While trying to pose the wind kept blowing my skirt up and I couldn't let it go for a second :-)) 
It was the fastest shooting ever but I had so much fun.. which is, I think so obvious :-)
Love,

HELLO.. WE ARE BACK!!

My dear ladies,

Say hello to my low-waisted flared jeans that are 10 years old (believe it or not!!!) and they still look as good as new! This style of jeans used to be very popular and I was (and still am) their biggest fan :-) 
Not many people I know still wear them.. it seems like everyone is caught up in the hype of skinny jeans.

Trends come and go so don't forget to always keep up ur style!! If you only follow the popular track, you will not have a good quality of fashion sense and everything u wear will look out of place 
Do you love...or hate flared jeans? :-)
Love,
M

WAITING FOR A RAY OF SUNSHINE

Hello ladies!
Today I'm showing you my preppy look which is very comfortable and warm at the same. Do you like preppy style? 
I mixed my favourite prints for this season... striped sweater, plaid skirt and houndstooth shoes.
A cute bow and a bit of grass green with a dash of sunshine is all I needed for another gray day..
Have a great weekend!
Love,

EAGLES

Hello ladies!!
 I went to do some shopping today and have a quick coffee... I felt like dressing casual but didn't wanna lose style.
 I picked this cotton jersey, it's ombre, it's attractive and it was just bagging me to glam it up :-), so I updated it with heels and necklace.
What do you think of the mix of these two styles?  
I just loove it!! 

Love,

A la BRIGITTE

Hello ladies!!
Today was one of those days when the wind gets wild and to tell you the truth the wind was the first thing I've noticed when I moved to Toronto 3 years ago :-)  It is also the worst enemy to a bloggers hair style ;-) 
Btw, what do you think of make up and hairstyle I'm wearing today? Do you like it? 
I love styling my hair and doing my make-up the way Brigitte Bardot did. It's very feminine, very elegant, it gives you that sexy, misterious look...
 So let's talk about todays outfit.. It's a mix of modern and retro - my favourite combination. I already mentioned HERE how much I love 60's so I like to combine that style with todays modern trend. Print pants, classic heels, and on top of everything high leather gloves that are so elegant. Perfect to combine with daily wear for that extra touch with first class appearance. Oh yes!
I apologize as some of the pics are a little blury, my photographer has got a terrible back pain and wasn't really into shooting :-( Hope he gets better soon.
Love,
M

ATTITUDE

 
Fall has slowly come and I am not very happy about it. I was born in summer and that is most likely why I love bright, sunny days and colourful clothing ;-)
 I am already mentally preparing myself to live and deal with cloudy days that are coming and one of the ways I fight those days is wearing brightly coloured clothes.
This is just one of many examples you will see on my blog;-)
What colours of clothes do you prefer for gloomy days?

Love,
M

OFF I GO..

Hi everyone!

Today I'm a time-traveler and I decided to travel back somewhere in 1920's ...by train :-))
I added a few modern details like this pair of shoes which I just didn't know what to combine with until I got this whole idea. Turned out they matched perfectly with this outfit ;-)

How do you like it? Would you dare to wear an outfit like this today?
Love,
M

SKULLS & CANOES

Hi everyone!
I bought this top this past summer when skulls could be seen all over but somehow forgot all about it. 
So here it is finally out of my closet. Might be a little late as the skulls are getting slowly out of fashion but I still like it especially with this great pair of burgundy heels!


Love!!

TIFF

Every year in September, Toronto hosts an international film festival (TIFF) that brings movie lovers to the city from all places all over the world.
The stars were shining in Toronto this past week and one of them was Penelope Cruz.
I am certainly not a star but I couldn't resist pretending to be one :-))
What do you think, which one of us looks better on the red carpet, Penelope or me? :-)))

SOPHISTICATED INNOCENCE

I strayed from same-old leopard with phyton patterned shoes and envelope clutch and decided to combine them with this gorgeous lace shorts and a black blazer to create a classy, sophisticated look with minimal fuss.
Red lips, hair in a bun and I'm ready to roll :-)

GIRLY GIRL

 
You guys know that I'm a high heel lover but from time to time I like to jump into my sneakers and in this case pretend that I'm 16 again :-)) 
These wedge sneakers are a must-have item! They're are so practical and fashionable and we can credit French designer Isabel Marant with jump-starting the trend last fall after her wedge sneakers were worn by BeyoncĂ© and other celebrities. They are also perfect for days when you want to have height but be comfortable.
I've chosen to match my sneakers with colors and prints and achieve this 80's Madonna/Cyndi Lauper look.
Let's not forget a backpack which made a big comeback this season :-)
What do you think ladies? Discuss :-))

Love,
Maya
Ps. How fun is this distorted CN tower ? :-)

CATCHING A CAB...

Hello everyone :-)
It's Saturday and I hope you guys are having a great day. I guess, hopefully this weekend I'll be able to have a bit of free time to relax as I've been pretty busy lately.
For those of you who are planning to go out tonight, here is my suggestion -  black skinny pants with a gold-bronze/silver sequin top that gives this fearless outfit an edge.
Add a good pair of heels like this Vince Camuto net sandals (which I am crazy in love with) and you are ready to rock :-)

Love,
Maya

STATUES AND RED CARPET

            Todays post is going to be real quick. It's almost midnight and I am dead tired. 
I don't like to wear black very often, but this lace-print dress caught my attention.

How do you like it?
