Bargain hunter-aholic

So I have always been a bargain hunter, who gets excited, sometimes too excited when I see something i like on special. The other day I was at J.Crew and saw a pair of purple jeans on sale for $15. I would've bought them but I honestly did not need another pair of jeans considering my dresser is packed to the max. Last week I did a photoshoot in the snow at the University of Toronto with one of my photographers (you can check out some of her work on Considering the weather and the snow I think we got some good shots. Everything I wore that day I got at a discounted price. Jeans from Zara for $10, Shoes from Aldo for $30 and they are actually really comfortable, and a necklace from that I got as a gift from my sister from Forever 21. The metallic top is from Costa Blanca for $20 and the socks were a steal from T.J. Maxx for only $2.

Check out for more cool photos from the photographer.

Kenneth Cole F/W 2013

Search #KCRUNWAY on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Pinterest and discover the social media storm that happened during the Kenneth Cole Fall/Winter 2013 Fashion Show. With every tweet using #KCRUNWAY there would be a donation of $1 made to amfAR. Pretty cool! Even the models Instagramed pictures of the audience while on the runway during the finale.

With that said the collection was very black. Then some metallic and towards the end a bit of olive green and red. But the pieces were created with a purpose to become a classic in anyone's wardrobe. This collection included leather jackets and vests, bomber jackets, long blazers and long leather skirts. This woman has a lot of street style even if her wardrobe doesn't have much color. The men's collection, although also very much black, showed a lot of classic pieces as well like peacoats, sweaters as well as bomber jackets.

Here a few of my favorite pieces from the women's collection.

So I'm not much of a model as you can probably tell in these photos. Everyday is cold, snowy and windy. But Tyra Banks says you have to push through no matter what the situation. So I decided to just do it. And I bombed.

I now have a new found respect for the many contestants on America's Next Top Model whom I judged while sitting on my couch eating chips, pouting my lips and working on my smize. To those that I called out on your lack of experience and bad photos, I apologize. :)
