Nouveau Grunge #DailyOutfit

Bonjour!

Hope you had a fabulous day!

I’m stoked to finally be seeing a movie at TIFF tonight! I will be seeing Wasted Youth, an international film from Greece. It will unfortunately be the only movie I’ll get to see at this year’s festival due to my hectic schedule but this year’s line-up was absolutely stellar! Have you seen anything cool at the TIFF this year?

Yesterday, the season 2 premier of BRBR aired. This year, we’ve got a brand new studio, series and website! In case you missed it or like Canadian music and want to discover new talent, have a look below ūüôā

I’m really honored to be featured on Lisa Ng’ rad new lifestyle blog for women called This Beautiful Day. Lisa is such an inspiring lady! She recently moved from Toronto to LA to continue her career there. You can check out the article here!

Keeping the “nouveau” grunge look going today, with a plaid skirt and my new Zara graphic tee! I attended a private school for a year and remember dreading wearing my plaid skirt uniform but a few years later, I kinda love it! This grunge trend is definitely growing on me a lot… I guess it’s only normal being a 90s kid ūüėČ

Mellow Yellow #DailyOutfit

Vacation starts in T-1! It’d be an understatement to say how excited I am to be going away for more than two weeks!

I’m really excited to be helping out one of my friends today – the talented designer Rudy Bois! He’s in Toronto for a special project and has asked me to lend him a hand. I can’t say just yet what it’s for but I’m delighted to be able to help him out. When I was in Quebec City earlier this month, he showed me his new SS14 collection, it was stunning! His choice of color, his fabrics and cuts were perfect!¬†Stay tuned for a sneak peek of his collection coming soon.¬†I can’t wait to wear another one of his creations at this year’s Prix G√©meaux (Gemini Awards in French), coming up on September 15th in Montreal. ¬†The show I host, BRBR has been nominated for an award. I still can’t believe it! We’re up against people I grew up watching… Though I know there’s no way we’ll win the award, it’s still really special to have been nominated ūüôā

For today’s outfit, I’m wearing a few shades of cream and yellow and some comfy strappy sandals from Steve Madden that I got in Santa Monica last year. Also wearing my OIA Jules gold shark tooth!

Blue & Yellow #DailyOutfit

Getting ready for the Festival d’√©t√© de Qu√©bec today. Really excited to attend the festival for a 7th year in a row! The FEQ is without a doubt one of the best organized and raddest festivals to attend in North America! Crossing my fingers for good weather because we have so much stuff to shoot for BRBR while in Quebec City! Keep an eye out for interviews and performances as well as new segments with – The Balconies, The Hunters, Xavier Caf√©√Įne, Ponctuation, Doldrums, Austra & more! We’re also organizing a rad “after-party” on July 7th. I’ll post up all the deets shortly but here’s what you need to know:

WHO: BRBR x I. Found 

WHAT: 1 band + 2 DJ sets FREE! Beers, Skate Ramp & More!

WHEN: July 7th –¬†10pm

WHERE: Quebec City, Qc

Rare color combination for today’s daily outfit. I decided to challenge myself today and wear some clothes that I don’t usually wear much. I find that it’s a good exercise to do once in a while, to see if you still like to wear some of your clothes or if it’s time to donate them! Feeling like a mermaid with this shinny blue skirt… I think today’s outfit was most likely influenced by the doc I watched on Dolphins last night ūüėČ *nerd*

Francofolies Day 1 #DailyOutfit

Happy Friday!

Spent the day researching for my upcoming interviews at the Francofolies tomorrow and the rest of the week. We also went out to get people’s opinion on some new up and coming Canadian artists with the BRBR sound test. Spoke to lot’s of really rad people either from Montreal or here on vacation.

Tonight, I’m really looking forward to two great FREE shows: Pandal√©on are playing at 8pm, followed by Dumas. Both are excellent French artists. So if you’re in Montreal and looking for something to do, come by the Quartier des spectacles for some good music!

Today’s outfit is pretty colorful! I kept the heels to a minimum since lot’s of walking around is required while filming and also for the shows tonight. Love my new colorful poncho that I got from Urban Outfitters in LA last week and also my Peace Hand necklace from Verameat!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

We’ll be chatting to artists like Dumas, Jason Bajada, Sarahm√©e, O Linea, Eli et Papillon and a ton more!

Back from vacation #DailyOutfit

Hey everyone!

Sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog lately. I decided to not bring my computer on vacation for once (I think it’s only happened once or twice in the last five or six years) and also didn’t have access to very good wifi where I was staying.

I hope that you’ve all been doing well! It was definitely nice to get away for a bit and refuel before the crazy festival season that starts later this week! I’ll post a little recap and “best of” from my vacation later this week. It was really nice to be back in California, to see friends, eat good food, hang out, surf and relax!! I also had the BEST birthday, thanks to @offneraurelien. A big thank you again to everyone for all of the kind birthday wishes! It was a very memorable birthday!

Now, it’s back to work and it’s pre-Francofolies de Montr√©al crunch time! I leave Wednesday morning for 10 days, so I’ve got so much to prepare leading up to this festival. In addition, to all of the festival madness, I’m also going to be hosting a very special livestream on Thursday June 13th at 11am EST, live from the Polaris Prize Long List unveiling. You can tune in live via BRBR‘s facebook page:¬†here. I’ll post the exact link later on in the week. Following that, I’ve also been asked to be one of the panelists on the Polaris Salon being held that same afternoon live from the Phi Centre in Montreal. For more info, or to attend, go here.

When I got back yesterday, I had a lovely package waiting for me from Uranium ūüôā I decided to wear their rad new tank for today’s outfit along with my brand new Verameat hand necklace. I got to check out her Beverly Hills shop while I was in LA, what a cute little spot!

White Wednesday #DailyOutfit

Happy Wednesday!

Hope your week is going well! I’m finding very hard to concentrate at work this week because I’m so stoked for my upcoming trip to LA next week. That said, I’m trying to stay focused and am working on planning out first two festival outings of the summer: the Francofolies de Montreal and the Festival d’√©t√© de Qu√©bec.

We’re putting together some of the new series that we’ve been working on for BRBR season 2. I should have a little preview for you all in the next couple of weeks ūüôā ¬†In the meantime, in case you missed it, you can now watch our 1hr special that we filmed in Ottawa at the Canadian Tulip Festival at the beginning of the month with Hollerado, Hotel Morph√©e and Pandal√©on. Can’t believe over 1200¬†people showed up for our event! What a memorable night!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcLFx1sscQA&list=UUL6u5j-6kV6vOepVTIdl97w&index=1

For today’s outfit, I’m wearing white, off-white and a pop of neon green. I’ve also decided to layer some of my favorite necklaces: the Biko Jaci necklace & Biko Colby necklace as well as an older H&M neon green necklace. No arm swag today, just a few dainty rings from Verameat¬†(obsessed with the Vampire Crown), Bing Bang & my daily staple – the Lady Muerte¬†ring from Springsioux (have you checked out some of the new fall/winter 2013 items previewed on their site?! You can do so here).

Pilot Day #DailyOutfit

Happy Wednesday!

Really happy to have finally booked my summer vacation last night. We were intially planning on spending two and a half weeks in France but due to the crazy flight prices we’ve had to think of plan b. Though it makes me really sad to not be able to go visit my family and go surf in Biarritz, we’re already planning our trip for December. What we’ve decided to do instead is a mini road trip in Arizona, Texas, Utah & California. Yes, California again… but honestly is there really such a thing as too much California time?! Don’t think so…

Today we shoot our show pilot for Season 2! There are some big changes coming to BRBR for the second season. I can’t talk about most of them just yet but I think these changes will help the show move forward quite nicely. We’ve got tons of new series, projects in the works and are also working on developping a new website ūüôā Yay!

For today’s shoot I’m wearing pops of red and organge color with gold accessories. I got these orange pointed cap toe pumps from H&M at the end of last summer and haven’t had the chance to wear them too much. I’m glad it’s finally getting warmer so I can finally whip them out! What I love about them is that they aren’t too high, so I’m not stumbling all over the place and they’re also really comfy!

Color Block + Leopard #DailyOutfit

Can’t believe it’s Wednesday already! In exactly 3 weeks, I’ll be on vacation in LA! I couldn’t be more stoked!! Until then, there is lot’s to do! This weekend, I’m on the go again and heading back to Montreal for a few days. Really crossing my fingers for some good weather. When I get back, we’ll be working on a bunch of pilots and tests for season 2 of BRBR. We’ll also be preparing all of the festivals we’ll be travelling to this summer. They start right away when I get back from LA. Eek!

For today’s outfit, I kept it simple, with a bit of color blocking and a pop of leopard print, with some leopard print flats. Last night, I saw the dreamiest pair of leopard print & gold heel boots from Christian Louboutin. Though they’re totally out of my price range, I feel these shoes are so badass and would have totally taken my outfit to the next level… I guess a girl can dream ūüėČ
