Modern Vice Family

The wait is finally over!! My handmade Modern Vice boots finally arrived in the mail yesterday straight from the factory in NYC. I’ve never owned a pair of boots in my life where I had seen exactly where they’ve been made, who made them, etc. so this is a very special pair to me. They came in a beautiful purple box, all polished and had that dreamy new leather smell. What I love about these boots is that they were not only handmade just for me but no two pairs are alike. Though it was hard to pick just one pair, I opted for the Camo Jetts because I think they will go with just about everything and seemed warm enough to get me through the fall, winter and upcoming spring.

Modern Vice has been really busy as of late shipping orders left right and centre to stores such as Anthropologie and also because of their many amazing collaborations. Really exciting for a brand that hasn’t been around for too long. Major props to Jordan Adoni, his brother Jensen Adoni and Natalie Suarez for knowing how to not only offer a great product at a good price but also knowing exactly how to market these amazing boots.

I’m really happy to officially be a part of the Modern Vice Family now!

Sicky look #DailyOutfit

I thought I could fight it but apparently my immune system wasn’t strong enough. I officially have a cold! As per usual it’s the worst timing ever with a cooking shoot today, my upcoming trip to NYC tomorrow, the Polaris Prize on Monday, show shoot on Tuesday, etc. But as my mom always said when I was a kid – the show must go on!

So for today’s outfit, I really opted for comfort and warmth! I’m wearing some of my favorite Anine Bing pieces and a super soft leopard shirt.

Roar #DailyOutfit

This week, Katy Perry launched/leaked two new singles, one with her on and off again beau John Mayer, a sappy love song called “Who You Love” as well as her already hit new single “Roar”. I’ve always been a fan of Katy’s music, I love her colorful pop and the magical universe that she transports her listeners into. It reminds me of my childhood and can always put a smile on my face. I thoroughly enjoyed her music DVD Part Of Me. I watched on Christmas eve last December while I was at London Heathrow waiting for a flight to Montreal for the holidays after having spent a magical ten days in France. For some reason, the DVD really got to me and I really starting appreciating Katy Perry even more. Though I usually always talk about up and coming artists and maybe less commercial tracks, I think there’s nothing wrong with also liking top 40 artists and big pop stars. I’d say Katy Perry is probably one of my current favorite pop darlings along with Rihanna and Beyoncé. What can I say, I’m kind of a sucker for a good catchy track.

Today’s daily outfit is inspired by “Roar”! If you haven’t heard the track yet, here’s her emoticon lyric video for the track:

Hey everyone! Hope your day’s going well! Today is absolute madness as we’re getting ready to leave for the Juno Awards tomorrow morning! There are so many things to prepare before we head to Regina. I can honestly say that I didn’t put as much effort as I usually do in my outfit this morning… I opted for comfort with distressed jeans, a plaid shirt and my comfy wedge sneakers!
