My favourite dresses (and tuxedo) from this year’s Golden Globes.
One trend that kept reappearing on the red carpet was accentuated waistlines. The majority of the dresses had waistbands, whether they were thick or thin, embellished or plain, they were everywhere! I loved this bit of detailing as it made the ladies look that much more stunning. Emma Stone pulled off this look very well with a black belt. I’m sure the dress would have looked good with or without the belt, but it was a great accessory to add to her ensemble.
All of the men on the red carpet looked very classy, but Matthew Morrison was the one who stood out the most to me. He looked so laid back and his suit was gorgeous. Props to him!

Here are a few shots from Bicyclette Boutique’s New Years Eve Lookbook, featuring Emily Coutts and Tiffany Aita. All of the sparkles, glitter, champagne, and the disco ball make me so excited for this fun night that is fast approaching. Every year New Years Eve gives most girls the excuse to go out and buy themselves a new gorgeous dress - which most of the time has glitter, sequins, or sparkles somewhere on it! Why should this year be any different? It shouldn’t. If you haven’t found yourself the perfect dress yet, take a stroll down Queen Street West in Toronto and you’re bound to find something. Bicyclette has racks and racks of gorgeous outfit options, with the accessories to match.
Head over to Bicyclette’s website to see the rest of their NYE Lookbook - all of the shots are so cute.

One of my required courses this semester is Apparel Manufacturing, taught to me by the lovely Carrie Hayes. In the early weeks of September she told us a little bit about herself and we discovered that she is a fashion designer of a womenswear collection called, you’ll never guess, the Carrie Hayes Collection. I typed the name of this collection into Google and was amazed at what I saw. My professor is a very skilled designer and her dresses are gorgeous. There are ___ different collections showcased on her website. The Carrie Hayes collection is a bespoke collection, meaning that it is tailored to each client and will go through multiple revisions before it’s final cut. All of Carrie’s dresses are made here in Canada by very experienced seamstresses.
