Leather & Spikes #DailyOutfit

Happy Tuesday! Really excited about the special show we’re preparing for you on our Canadian Music Week showcase Le French Tickler that will be airing on April 1st at 8pm EST on TFO and online at http://tfo.org. I was just watching some of the performances from the night and they look and sound great! Can’t wait for you all to see them! In the meantime, we shot a fun episode at Le Dolci (check out the delicious cake they made for us!!) in Toronto last week, you can watch it here:

For today’s outfit, I’m rocking some faux-leather pants, paired with a green sleeveless embroidered blouse and my black and gold studded booties. I’m also wearing a bunch of gold and spike accessories to embellish the outfit.

Le French Tickler #DailyOutfit

What a night last night! The first BRBR x CMW showcase “Le French Tickler” was a huge success! I truly had the best time taping our special show in the afternoon as well as hosting the evening with Didier, from BRBR. Our CMW special show will be airing on April 1st at 8pm EST and will featuring performances, interviews and funny moments from our night last night. Yesterday, Claude Munson & The Storm Outside surprised Eight and a Half with a cover of their track “Go Ego”. Here’s a little excerpt of the performance, the full performance will be available on the web the week of April 1st:

Thanks to all the bands that played our showcase: Pandaléon, Claude Munson & The Storm Outside, Karim Ouellet, Peter Peter, Eight and a Half and Loud x Lary x Ajust. All put on stellar sets! I highly recommend checking them out, if you haven’t heard of them yet. Also, a big thank you to everyone who came out to the show. Hope to see you all next year!!

I woke up to the best news this morning! I won the Karl Lagerfeld x Shangri-La #ShangriLagerfeld styling contest I had entered on Dainty Girl. I’m beyond excited to have won this amazing watch after styling it with my dreamy spring outfit. I can’t wait to style it when I receive it!

This Is What Rock N’ Roll Looks Like! #DailyOutfit

It’s with little sleep but much excitment that I start what will probably be the longest work day of my life… or at least of the last little while. After months of planning, the day has finally arrived! Tonight is the first ever Canadian Music Week BRBR showcase “Le French Tickler“. Starting at 8pm at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, some of our favorite Canadian artists will be showcasing tracks from their latest releases. On the bill, we’ve got Eight and a Half (ex-The Stills & Broken Social Scene), Peter Peter, Karim Ouellet, Pandaléon, Loud x Lary x Ajust and Claude Munson & The Storm Outside. I couldn’t be more excited to know that the showcase is almost all sold-out! There will be a few tickets at the door and some passes/wristbands will be accepted. More info about the evening here:

The entire show will be livestreamed on our facebook page, so if ever you can’t make it out to the show, you can watch it live starting at 8pm EST here.  We’ll also be taping a special BRBR show with the artists during the afternoon that will be airing on April 1st.

My anthem for today couldn’t be more fitting and is a great pump up track by Porcelain Black!

Last night, I had a blast at Day 3 of World MasterCard Fashion Week. I went to see two shows: Mackage and Joe Fresh.

I absolutely fell head over heels in love with the entire Mackage collection. The first look, as seen below floored me. I loved the mixed leather and fur biker jacket, the burgundy leather skirt and leather leggings paired with their amazing new line of handbags and rad platform heels. I loved the red wool plaid skirts and shorts, all of the leather jackets, the fur, the long trench coats with leather trim, the schoolgirl backpacks and the little leather biker gloves. To me, Mackage’s fall/winter 2013 collection was the perfect mix between class and rock n’ roll! I can absolutely see myself wearing every single piece of the collection, it’s totally my style. I couldn’t be more excited to have seen such an inspiring runway show. Definitely my favorite this year! Now, I need to start saving up, if I want to add the new collection to my wardrobe.

The second collection I saw was Joe Fresh‘s Fall/Winter 2013. The room was absolutely packed for the show, which started off with some lovely French indie/electro music. That definitely got my attention! Though I don’t own many Joe Fresh pieces, I’ve always respected the line for creating quality affordable and stylish pieces that can be paired up with just about anything. They’re perfect for basically any occasion. Last night’s collection, was all about black and white, shimery fabrics, biker jackets, studs and headscarves?! Yup, a handful of models were wearing headscarves over their short black bob wig. I can’t say I was a big fan of the headscarves but… My favorite items of the collection were the black and white biker jackets, the black faux fur jacket and all of the black skirts. I also loved hearing French music throughout the show. Also, not sure if it’s just me, but Joe Mimran‘s final wave at the end seemed so heartfelt. He really seems like a sweetheart! Overall, I definitely see myself adding a few of those pieces to my wardrobe.

So for today’s special CMW show taping, I was inspired by the new Mackage collection and put an outfit together that mixes: leather, platform heels, a biker jacket, black.

Pocahontas #DailyOutfit

Bon matin everyone! Can’t believe Canadian Music Week is just a week away! So much preparation to do before the festival starts.  Next week, we’ll be taping two shows, I’ll be covering the festival for my show, running around doing live sessions and interviews with bands. I’ll also be at the Indies and in addition to all of that BRBR is putting on its first ever CMW showcase at the Gladstone Hotel on the Thursday March 21 called “Le French Tickler“. We’ve got a ton of rad Canadian artists on the bill: Eight and a Half, Peter Peter, Karim Ouellet, Pandaléon, Claude Munson & The Storm Outside as well as Loud x Lary x Ajust. For more info on the show, go here. And, if you’re still in need of a wristband for the festival, my show is giving away 10 free pairs, right here.

I was super excited to get dressed this morning because a) I had picked out my outfit in advance, something that I rarely have time to do these days and b) I had a brand new Zara skirt to wear!! The print on the skirt reminds me of Pocahontas, I’m not sure why but it just does! I’m really obsessed with Zara‘s new spring/summer 2013 collection. I love all the aztec prints, southwestern vibe, vibrant colors, suits, blazers, dreamy shoes, etc.  I also received the perfect sparkly necklace last week from Luxe Craving, which fit perfectly with the colors of my new skirt.  Have you check out their new jewels yet? You can do so right here!
