Ezra Constantine Spring/Summer 2010 - Something for The Boys

For those of you that follow my blog, you know how much I love men's fashion. I mean I absolutely adore styling and shopping with guys. I just get a thrill out of suggesting items to men and getting them to try on things they would never imagine themselves wearing. Every single time I've done that, the guys I dressed were pleasantly surprised at the fact that they actually did like what I picked out. So much so that they would go ahead and buy it the next time they entered the store. Sometimes they may have resisted the idea initially but the fact that they go out of their way to buy it in the end, stands to say something. It brings such joy to me to be able to open up a guy's idea of style and fashion and be able to inspire them to dress in ways they would have never done so before.

Aside from that, I still enjoy looking at men's clothing. I'm fascinated by magazines like GQ and I'm even buying a subscription to it. I just love watching men dress well. In North America people seem to think that a man who likes fashion is either metrosexual or homosexual and I believe that mentality needs to change. I know people in the fashion industry think otherwise, but the general public still seems to feel that fashion is a woman's domain and so many men are uncomfortable with dressing up in a fashionable manner. I hope that this blog serves to change this perspective for some of you out there.

OKAY, now enough of my rant. Let me introduce you to Ezra Constantine. I know some of you have never heard of this line but the name still rings a bell though, doesn't it? At least it should for you Canadian fashionistas and fashionistos. Ezra Constantine is the male counterpart of Greta Constantine. For those of you that don't know, Greta Constantine is a women's fashion label that was created by Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong. Finally, these men decided to create a men's line and VOILA, Ezra Constantine was born. Take a look at the first ever, Ezra Constantine collection, which was designed for the Spring/Summer 2010 season. The lookbook is like a mixture of the Jets from West Side Story and the gangs from two music videos - Beat It by Michael Jackson and Run This Town by Jay Z.


And I know ladies, the last two photos are just YUMMY!!!
Oh, and by the way, can someone get me those pants on the second picture above? I want them for
Hugs and Kisses,

Well Dressed Women

Not much to say except I love the outfits all of these women are wearing, some are extravagant and others are simple. A few of the girls are well renowned for their fashion sense and if you follow my blog you'll spot one of my favourite style icons, Anna Dello Russo. Keep an eye out for future posts, two of these girls will be my next Woman of Style.

This will probably be my last post till I get into Egypt. I'll try and post as soon as I land with some photos.

Why "Success" Doesn't Always Mean Happiness: Success Redefined

SUCCESS! What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you hear the word success? What makes a person successful? Is it money, status, power, fame, or is it something else? The reality is, that in our Western society, most people identify success as some mixture of money, status, power, and fame (and with women, beauty is generally a necessary component to add to all of that) but is that truly success?

When I was in college and university I remember mulling over the topic of success and that's when I came to a powerful realization for myself - personal success is not defined by money, status, power, beauty or fame at all. That's what the outside world tells us or demonstrates as success. It's what we see emblazoned in ads and in our media. It's what we pass down to each other and what we talk about in social media. All of these things are what we equate with success - and success equals happiness right?
Based on our notions of success shouldn't celebrities…

Post-Traumatic Growth: When Trauma Transforms Your Life

Trauma. It's a 6 letter word that carries so much power and complexity. The Oxford dictionary defines it as "a deeply distressing or disturbing experience." Trauma represents such a varying degree of experiences: rape, emotional abuse, assault, torture, a plane crash, war crimes, bullying, witnessing violence...really the list can go on. One of the hardest forms of trauma is that which is committed against you by others humans. Some people have had repeated traumatic experiences. Some people have had varying forms of trauma. Some have been exposed to trauma for a long period of time. Regardless, no one escapes from trauma without it impacting their lives and the way they socialize with the world.

When you go through a traumatic experience your entire world is flipped upside down. Emotions such as fear, shame, guilt, sadness, anger, sorrow, numbness, confusion and grief all occur -- sometimes being felt within the same time-period. You feel like you can't make sense o…

Self-Perception and the Destructive Impact of Social Media: Success Redefined (Part II)

In my last post I talked about how society's definition of success perpetuates unhappiness (click here to have a read). Rather than looking at success as a measure of our fulfillment and contentment, we measure it by wealth, power, fame and beauty. Unfortunately, social media has only heightened our awareness of these ideals. A medium that was once created simply for connectivity is now a massive marketing tool and a place where people share the best moments of their lives. 
Prior to social media, if you wanted to see someone's photos, hear their opinion or learn about them, you'd either see it/hear it directly from them or get wind of it through the grapevine (unless they were so famous that you'd see them in traditional media). You weren't continually bombarded with information about everyone's lives and although the measure of societal success was relatively the same, there was less of likelihood that you'd feel like you didn't measure up on a consta…

T-Shirt, Tights, and Socks? That's Anything but Boring!

The weather in Toronto has been super weird this winter. A t-shirt and tights without any layers has been my kind of outfit on the regular. Torontonians are normally pretty accustomed to erratic weather but this winter has been incredibly warm with just a sprinkle of cold days. I don't know much about the ins and outs of global warming but I've definitely noticed a trend with changing climates for the past few years. I love the heat but it's clearly coming at a price.

Wanna know something strange? On the days where I've needed to wear warm clothing, majority of the time it was stuff I got in L.A.! Who would have thought? Ironic, right? Oddly enough, when I visited the city they were having an unusual cold spell (global warming again?) and I wasn't prepared with the right clothing so most of the pieces I bought there were for warmth.
On my trip to L.A., I was introduced to Monica at a sneaker event called Project Blitz, She was incredibly sweet and I honestly mean …
