Man of Style - Nickelson Wooster

A month back I finally discovered the name of an amazingly well styled man that I've featured on my blog several months ago but I had no idea who he was. (If you want to take a look at the previous post click here). After I figured out his name, I kept thinking I would blog about him again but I just never got down to it. Recently, Tommy Ton also announced him as one of the best dressed men so I know I'm not the only person thinking this man is amazing.

Without further delay, please let me reintroduce you to Nickelson Wooster, men's fashion director for Neiman Marcus. I don't know what it is about him that made me fall instantly in love with his style. It's can seem so wildly eccentric at times (not always) but yet he looks so put together and still has an air of sex appeal and masculinity. I love his confidence! Out of any style icon I've posted about, this man is my favourite, hands down.

Eat, Pray, Love - MY WAY!

I've been mentioning over the past few months that there's been a lot on my plate. For those reasons I had to put my blog to the side and work on sorting myself out. I've always debated travelling and this summer I kept thinking about leaving school for a while so I could travel. The idea of it was daunting. How could I just leave school? That's been my life for nearly 20 years! Yet I wanted to travel so badly. I just wanted the chance to experience another part of the world if I could.

A few days before school started I went to see the movie Eat, Pray, Love and it got me thinking again but of course, I was too frightened to actually go ahead and pull out of school. The idea lingered in my mind and I just couldn't shake the feeling that I just needed to do something unpredictable of me. So two days into school, I decided to pull out for the semester. YES! I did it. Trust me, it wasn't easy. I was panicking for the next week wondering if I had done the right thi…

One Top Worn Three Ways

A while back I indicated I had done some shoots with Sid of myself but I never posted the photos. I thought I would post them today. Although the weather is changing I still feel these shots are worth while. I know I wrote about being insecure about how I look and I'll be honest, I don't like these photos too much of myself but I've been working out a bit and have lost some weight since then. I'm still not where I want to be but with good eating habits and an active lifestyle I know I'll be back where I was just a year or so ago.

The whole idea of the shoot was to show how you could take one item and wear it 3 different ways. The first outfit is more casual, the second is for a night out, and the third is business.

Lanvin x H&M

If you've been following my blog you know that one of my favourite collections has come from Lanvin. You would also know how much I love Alber Elbaz. Now word was going around recently that Lanvin and H&M would be collaborating. I first heard about it on Elin Kling's blog a few days ago but even she wasn't sure whether it was true or not. Well low and behold, on Thursday H&M revealed that the rumours were true. I've never been one to bother to line up for any collection but I am sooooooooooo excited to see this. I think I might be willing to soldier it out to buy some of his pieces.

Below is a video of Alber Elbaz explaining why he chose to be a part of this project.

There'll be more press releases to come and get this, H&M will debut an online video of the collection on November 2nd. Which means everyone gets to see the collection three weeks before it launches in stores! 
Alber Elbaz describes the collaboration with H&M so eloquently by saying &quo…
