Leather, Lace, & Lunch Dates


What a lovely day I've had thus far! Mid-morning I met up my one of my favourite fashionistas for lunch & a little wander. Being limited to downtown we went to one of my favourite restaurants, Gorilla Food, for some raw vegan delicacies. After we consumed far too much (skipping dessert was absolutely out of the question), we headed to The Bay for a little look around.

Our main destination was the Topshop capsule & 'The Room', both of which opened in September. Although small, Topshop had some cute pieces I'll definitely be going back for. As for The Room... !!! We were both 'oohing & awing' non-stop at the new collections in all their vibrant glory. I particularly fell in love with the Brian Atwood Resort Collection colour-block pumps & this teal Furla candy bag (one of which has been on my wish-list since last year). There was also an Erdem trench & dress which were love at first sight. And don't even get me started on all the tangerine! It was absolutely everywhere & I was pretty much in raptures... just ask Kris haha :) 

Once we were able to tear ourselves away we had a little run-in with a flock of seagulls intent on stealing Kris's leftovers. A few photos later Kris was off to work, & I to home. All in all, a delightful start to my day off! 

Jungle Coleslaw & Pesto Veggie Burger... unbelievably delicious
Dearest Kris! Don't you just love her duo-tone Steve Madden bag? :)
This was cute... until he snatched it 30 seconds later & hoards of his comrades swarmed in around us
After the seagull incident all following photos feature me dying of laughter or grinning cheesily (this being the latter)
Believe it or not, these Lita's are my go-to shoes for hiking around downtown. I know they're sky-high, but the platform makes them pretty comfortable. Not to mention, the multiple comments I receive each time pretty much makes my day :)
I was wearing:
Military coat - Zara
Leather shorts - Vila via ASOS
Lace top - American Apparel
Bandeau - Garage
Necklace - Vintage
Bag - H&M
Kitten Lita's - Jeffrey Campbell

  5. Isn't The Room incredible?! I nearly die every time I go in there. And those Litas are absolutely stunning - I'm amazed to hear they're comfortable, too, but I really, really want to believe it because they are amazing :)

    I too studied nutrition (but in London Ontario) and love fashion! I was also a vegan for 3 years, but have switched back to an omnivore diet after university.
