How To Wear: Black Skater Dress

Again, shot this before the weather decided to drop an ice storm on Toronto this past month. If anyone knows me, it’s that the all-black-errday-look without looking super 90s goth is right up my alley lately…aka the past 2 years. When you add in a dash of vintage, a pinch of fur (duh), and sick lucite heels, we’re in business.

Shot by Mike Solda, this took place in the hallway of his apartment up by Broadview station. As an aside, I’m supposed to note his hallway doesn’t normally look this sketchy. This creepy-esque look was pretty fun to shoot. I’m wearing a vintage rabbit fur sweater here over the Lustre Bad Reputation dress (on sale), and the Miista debora boot/heel. I’d like to think I was channeling half vamp half angry Asian girl. Let me know what you think!

Our January to mid-Feb lookbook gave our vintage pieces a dramatic flair as Christen walked around a desert and a coast.

Blogger Spotlight: A Bevy Of

If this blogger looks familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen her featured as a Style Icon on Chictopia. Courtney from A Bevy Of is definitely worth checking out. We are obsessed with how she plays with different layers, prints and textures in her styling. A multi-talented gal who has recently packed her bags and moved to LA, we’re so glad to be sponsoring and following her on her latest updates from the big city!

1) How long have you been blogging for? What made you start?
Let’s see, I’ve had my blog for just over a year but it was originally a graphic design blog with the occasional Lookbook post, but I never really got into it until this past September when I opened up my Etsy store, The Purl Factory. The blog started out focusing around my store, but I somehow wandered over to Tavi Genvinson’s blog and it immediately turned into a fashion blog with Lookbook/Chictopia updates, styling posts, Etsy features, and blogger interviews. Ever since then I can’t stop blogging.


2) How would you describe your aesthetic?
Hmmm….. eclectic, ethereal, girly, vintage, and lots and lots of layers and prints.


3) Your perfect outfit consists of?
Tights, a cardigan, a cute pair of wedges, a mini dress, and at least one of those things has to have velvet on it.


4) A Fall trend you can’t live without…
Velvet!

5) One thing on your bucket list you have to do
I’m originally from Detroit, I’ve only been in L.A. for 10 months, but I miss Detroit like crazy and there are some amazing things going on there right now so right now I really want to go back to Michigan and help make Detroit a better place to live. Oh, and be successful at things in my life that I love doing like fashion blogging, graphic design, and knitting/crocheting….. I know you said just one….. haha but I got carried away.

Blogger Spotlight: Petra Karlsson

This 14-year old Swedish blogger has us obsessed with her fashion, photography, and hair. We’re amazed by her keen ability to style and balance her school-fashion life.She’s latest hair inspiration for many other Lookbook.nu bloggers. If you haven’t already, see why other fashion bloggers are talking about Petra on her blog here.

1. How long have you been blogging for? What made you start?
I’ve been blogging for 1 ½ year. At the beginning I just wanted to share my photos, but after a year or so fashion became an interest and took over the blog, haha.


2. How would you describe your aesthetic?
Hmm.. The looks that I “create” actually just pops up in my head when I see one piece of clothing. I’m kind of random when it comes to clothes, it does not have to be extremely modern for me to wear it. I like to wear different things everyday just because I like to change and always be in moving in some direction.

3. Your does perfect outfit consists of?
A perfect outfit Is a outfit where you feel comfortable in, but in the same time you feel like you’re looking good and that the clothing you’re wearing represents you.


4. A Fall/Winter trend you can’t live without……
Sparkly clothes, love it. Feel like I’m a queen ;)


5. What’s one thing on your bucket list you have to do?
This whole lookbook/blogging thing has giving me a lot to do. During the Christmas holiday, I don’t have any school stuff that I need to do, but I have 5-6 trainings a week and when I open my mailbox in the mornings I can have 10 unread mails. Of course I’m glad about it but It kind of stresses me out, so I should actually take it more peacefully, relax and do other things like just go out and photograph.
