Basic Summer Outfits: Dresses and Lightweight Jeans

With the temperatures well into the mid-20s Celsius, it’s time to turn over to a permanent summer wardrobe – something that I will be wearing for the next few months.  Because it can get quite humid in Toronto in the… Continue Reading

If you read my main site, DelectablyChic!, you’d know that both Ann Taylor and LOFT have opened up stores in Toronto (Ann Taylor now has two – one downtown at the Eaton Centre and another at Yorkdale).  Being as busy as I am, I haven’t really had the chance to post some outfit pictures from […]

World MasterCard Fashion Week: Some Select Outfits I Wore

Wow, what a crazy week!  While I used to try to post my outfits daily DURING the event, I’ve now saved it for the end.  It’s just getting busier and busier for me each season (or maybe I’m just getting older).  I did manage to get at least one photo each day, but not everything […]

The Ultimate Looks for NYFW and TIFF: An IFB Project

New York Fashion Week starts this coming Thursday, the same day as opening night for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).  Both events are stylish, in cities where constant heel wearing isn’t ideal and involve a lot of celebrity sighting and perhaps even be photographed by others.  And not to mention unpredictable temperatures.  Early September […]

A Typical Sunday: Brunch at a Local Breakfast Joint

Had brunch with my husband at a neighbourhood breakfast place, Maggie’s (they’re on Twitter, but they don’t post frequently) on Sunday morning before heading to the supermarket to buy groceries for the next few days.  We’re regulars at the comfort food breakfast-and-lunch joint, frequenting it a couple of times a month (not exactly the best […]

Rediscovered: Old Kate Spade and Coach Bags

If you follow DelectablyChic! on Instagram, you might have seen a recent picture, taken of a Kate Spade bag that dates back to 2004-ish.  That bag has been sitting in my old closet back at my parents’ place, not seeing the light of day since 2005.  I loved that bag.  It was cute and different, […]

My Wedding Gown: An IFB Fashion Moment

I’ve had a lot of fashion moments, but I’d have to say that my wedding is definitely on top.  My second anniversary is coming up.  In fact, it’s about one week away – August 21.  The dress, which was a lace Oscar de la Renta, was the first dress I tried on.  Like most brides, […]

BCBG Jersey Dress with Belt

Every summer, I get a new at least one new BCBG jersey dress.  I have a whole closet full of them dating back to 2003 or 2004.  This dress is actually from an outlet mall in Niagara Falls, purchased during a massive sale – I think I paid like $50 for this thing.  It’s very […]
