Not bad for the eyes right? I love men’s styles, as fun as it is to buy for ladies, I enjoyed a lot the time I was buying for men’s. I also got inspired a lot from the menswear and not only lately, I always have been. The men’s shows started a couples of days ago, so I pulled out for you my favourites streets shots that I found on the web. Of course Eugene’s on some of them, he’s my all time best!!
Hey! Sorry for my silence of the past week, a lot happened at work lately. I’ve been promoted to Ladies Buyer and it’s been pretty intense since then, I’m sure you understand! I just got back from New York and I took pictures especially to share them with you. I will present them to you as a diary, let’s start!!
The first day we did our usual stores visits, to get inspiration and see what is happening on the East Coast. Most of the pictures have been taken in Soho where our hotel was located.
Saturdays Surf NYC, I love that cute little surf shop, it’s quit unusual to pass by a surf shop in NYC, and that makes it even more special and unique. Only for their coffee, it’s worth the trip
31 Crosby Street
New York, NY 10013
A must in NYC, Opening Ceremony, the classic stairs pictures!!
MM6, beautiful shop, Maison Martin Margiela is one of my favourite designers, I had to drop by!
91 Grand St
New York, NY,
Nike Town, with his four or five floors, it is pretty impressive.
Here are some inspiring stuff from the streets of New York
Now, let’s talk about food, one of my favorite things to do in New York is to try new restaurants. I have a list on my phone and every time I go, I try a new place. This time our Vice President was kind enough to let me use my list !! We tried two of them, first of, Miss Lily. OMG I was so happy to try it, too good and the atmosphere is really fun. You really must try the corn !!
132 W Houston St
New York, NY,
Then we tried Two Hands for lunch, if you are looking for a healthy place to start your day, this is the place to go. I’ve tried the Avo Toast with a side of chorizo and a cold press juice, Beet, Ginger, Carrot and pineapple, it was perfect!!
For breakfast, my GMM brought me to Balthazar Bakery, it’s a traditional French bistro, on spring street.
I hope you enjoyed my diary, and don’t be shy if you have any questions!! xx
I’m so in a vacay mood today, but unfortunately I’m not, but it’s Sunday and it’s sunny outside, so let’s just pretend!! This outfit will certainly be part of my luggage for my next trip. Layering is ideal for travelling, you can adapt during the day depending on the weather. I also love these Boston Birkenstock, ok, I have to agree that they’re really not for everyone. They’re chunky and not feminine, but comfortable, so who cares, I like them!
How beautiful is this park, (where we took the pictures) It’s near Atwater market and we go through it all the time when we do our jogging, but we never take the time to enjoy it. It’s lovely with all the different flowers and so relaxing with the signing of the birds. It’s one of the gem in my neighbourhood. Its name is also beautiful, Parc des Marchands-de-Bois, it’s on Rufus Rockhead, if you want to go take a look!
I’m not talking about the dog, I mean the shoe brand! Jack Purcell is the comfortable version of the classic Chuck Taylor from Converse. They are easy to recognize, wit their iconic black smile at the toe of the shoe!
It has been a while since I wore them, they are perfect to explore a city, and since I was in Quebec City last week-end visiting my family, I brought them in my luggage! They fit perfectly with my casual week-end outfit and they are confortable enough to walk with them all day long. Comfy + great look, perfect combination right?
I went shopping last week-end, and now there’s so many things that I want from the summer collections, ahh life is so not fair ;p kidding!!! I bought these pieces from the H&M Conscious collection that where on sale!!! Yep, the entire collection is now on sale, so if you don’t want to miss it, it’s time to go!!
But then there are other great pieces that I want, most of them from Aritzia, by the way, their new store on Sainte-Catherine Street is BEAUTIFUL!!! The rest is from Zara & H&M, look at that Kimono, it would be so perfect for my next trip!! You can shop for them online, I added the links at the end of the post, enjoy!!
Made By You, is the name of the latest Converse spring 2015 campaign. Who doesn’t own a pair of Chuck Taylor from the iconic brand, right? Everyone has a story whit that shoe, either from your last summer festival with mud still on them, which makes you remember that day, or even your Prom night!!
Can you believe that this shoe exist for almost 100 years? Since 1917, Converse makes the perfect casual shoes that you can wear with literally everything!!! I own 9 pairs of Converse, crazy right, and I love them all. My favourite pair is the one you can see in the picture above, it’s a collab with Maison Margiela. This photo gas been shot during the event, to re-create the Made By You campaign pictures, cool right?
I went to the Made By You spring 2015 launch last week, and Karim and I have been lucky enough to get a pair of custom Chuck Taylor. We designed a logo inside our Chuck’s and our name have been added too, so cool. I will never wear that pair of shoes in a crowed house party haha!!
You can share your picture of your favourite chuck on Instagram using this hashtag: #MadeByYou and you can shop the Spring 2015 line at Little-Burgundy! Have fun and share!!
If you’re not convinced after all these great outfit, I don’t know what to add … I’m the #1 fan of the culottes, it’s like a hybrid of a skirt and a pair of trouser! You can wear them with heels at work or with a pair of sneaker for a more casual look.
Which look is your favourite?

Sunday, April 19th, it’s sunny and beautiful in Montreal and I feel great! There’s no better feeling (Ok, yes they are) then to feel everything back to life during spring days. Everyone is out enjoying the first days of spring warmth and sunshine, the first flowers are popping out and buds spring.
Sunday is the perfect day to wear casual clothes like what I’m wearing in these pictures. My favourites relax fit trouser from Max Mara paired with a sweatshirt, a long blazer and a pair of sneaker, that’s the way I feel the more of myself. And, you what’s the outfit that you feel the most of yourself in it?
Who needs some fresh street style inspiration to start this spring the right way? My latest monthly street styles is up and full of colors
Isn’t refreshing? Who doesn’t need some colours in early spring? It makes you feel good and alive after a long winter. I hope you enjoy your long week-end and that you eat a lot of chocolate 😛
In this post, I told you about the way I wanted to wear my new Kaftan, that’s the way! It’s exactly how I’ve seen it the minutes I saw this piece at Urban Outfitters. It’s great when a simple piece inspired you immediately, it’s the best!
There’s still snow on the ground in Montreal, but I’m positive that after this week, there will no longer. I have to admit that I’m fed up of that snow, it’s now dirty and I just want to see some green!! Do you have project for the Easter week-end? I have, like every year I will be at Quebec city, see you there for my next post! xxx
