Fashion Friday for ET Canada

@christianconfidential

So, I’m sharing this post a little but I guess late is better than never right?!? To be honest, I wanted to wait to share this post because I wanted to shoot the look or something similar to it to give you guys a better perspective of my outfit. At the end of march, I shot my latest television segment for ET Canada’s Fashion Friday and it was such a good one! Myself, Jodi Lopez and Carlos Bustamante dished about the latest and greatest in celebrity fashion and gave our honest opinions (some more than others, aka me haha) about a ton of stars.

It’s crazy because I’m really enjoying this television stuff. It feels much more natural to me and being able to be myself and share my true thoughts and opinions is the ultimate cherry on top! I knew that I wanted to venture into television for a while now, and  I’ve dabbled a little into acting a little but  I didn’t truly love it. I felt like with acting I had to stay true to the character I was playing but being a host or a personality to me it’s just like sitting around with your friends and spilling the tea – so much more my vibe.

Fast forward to the look I shot the other week in London which drew inspiration from my ‘television look’. I opted to keep it pretty similar except let go of the hat and elevated the bottom half with faux leather pants.

I love this look, to me it’s very Miguel meets Lenny Kravitz (which I adore them both). This is a look that I’d likely wear to a festival, a night out in the summer or a fashion event in the city. Whether it’s the pants or the printed shirt or the whole look all together it’s bound to be an outfit that people comment on – which to me is a win in fashion!

Winter Street Style

@christianconfidential It’s been a while since I’ve last given you guys a new street style post but today I am back  on the blog with one that’s practical, stylish, and gives back to a good cause all at the same time! If you’ve ever spent any time in Canada during winter, you know how cold our winters can get and honestly I don’t know how I would make it through them without my friends over at Canada Goose. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve definitely seen the brand pop up in my content throughout the years. Whether the brand’s hosting a store opening party, a press preview or simply just interacting with their products on a continuous basis – I’m always blown away by the quality and effort that they put in to everything they do.

That being said, the newest CG addition to my collection might be a little more special (in my opinion) due to it’s involvement with a great cause. The PBI Expedition Parka (that I’m currently living in), is one of 14 items apart of a collaboration that Canada Goose and Polar Bears International (a non profit organization) have created to help support the conservation of Polar Bear habitats through research and education.

Now let’s get into this street style look – personally I’m in love with it! It’s simple, it’s chic and it’s super functional. I went up a size in the PBI Expedition Parka to give it more of an oversized look. I then paired it with a navy blue mock neck, some relaxed fit pants and my favourite pair of Wyatt Harness boots. This is an outfit that you could catch me in heading to meetings, media previews and definitely on February 27th, 2019 for Polar Bear Day!

For additional ways that you can get involved in Polar Bear Day please visit PBI’s official website here!

Retro Style with Simons

@christianconfidentialI know, I know… M-I-A much?!?! Honestly, I don’t even have a good excuse to explain why I haven’t been on my blog as much as I should be but please don’t hate me! It’s crazy because I’ve been pretty busy this summer working on projects but most of it has been living solely on social media @christianconfidential.

That being said, I definitely need to show more love to you guys and keep my site updated on the regular. These images are from a recent project I did  for Simons, in efforts to promote a new younger line that they’re pushing called, DJAAB. I would describe this collection as an ode to retro street style with a modern twist to it. If you’re into oversized fits, vibrant colours and comfort this line definitely has something for you.

These were my favourite images and looks that I put together featuring pieces from their collection – Also check out the video that my team and I shot for it here!

My Stay At The Westin

@christianconfidential

Hi guys, I’m back on the blog today to share a cool travel post and contest that I’ve partnered on with Marriott International in celebration of Canada’s big 150! Marriott International decided to team up with a few canadian bloggers and have them visit various cities across the country to explore and take in some of Canada’s most known and hidden gems. For me, coincidentally, I was asked to visit Ottawa, which is actually my hometown so I was more than happy to participate. I’ll be sharing more about my favourite places to visit and things to do in a later post but for now I’ll be giving you guys a glimpse into my stay at The Westin (a hotel apart of the Marriott International family), and giving you guys the details on how you can potentially stay here as well by entering Marriott’s Epic Canada Adventure Sweepstake!

@christianconfidential

Whenever I’m looking for a hotel to stay at in a new city, I always pay close attention to the location. Is it central, is it easy to get to, is it safe, are there good restaurants close by etc.. If you’re like me, then the Westin is perfect for you. It’s centrally located, easy to catch a cab, tons of tourist attractions nearby and has good restaurants (The Shore Club is located inside the hotel) and shopping literally steps away (Nordstrom anyone?!).

When designing my experience at the Westin, I wanted to make sure that I got to experience the best that they had to offer. I ended up staying in a beautiful Junior Suite that had floor to ceiling windows aka a lot of natural light and the perfect view of the Parliament. The Westin hotel is all about making sure their guests move, feel, work and play well. Whether you’re looking for healthy food options, spa services, dinner recommendations (the concierge staff was so helpful), a proper gym (they have two and a pool), or comfortable meeting space, the Westin has it all covered! Additional perks of staying at this hotel, is that they have a run club that guests are encouraged to participate in and car service (sponsored by Cadillac) that you can have access to when booking certain suites.

@christianconfidential@christianconfidential

Now, let’s talk about this contest – Marriott’s Epic Canada Adventure Sweepstakes! The contest launches today (June, 22nd) and will be open for four weeks. All you have to do to enter is visit Marriott Canada or SPG Canada. There will be a total of 5 contest winners from Canada and the United States, 3 of which will win ‘epic’ adventures at Marriott Canada locations and 2 will win ‘epic’ adventures at Starwood Canada locations. What’s included in these ‘epic’ adventures?  Flight and accommodations for the contest winner and a guest, $1000.00 CAD spending money and a complimentary experience/activity.

I’ll be crossing my fingers for you guys, good luck!

Hi guys, I hope that your week has been off to a great start! I’m back with a new style post that I’ve teamed up on with Canada Goose to showcase one of my favorite items from their SS16 Collection. Their Brookvale jacket totally speaks to my lifestyle –  it keeps me warm,  it’s super light & very versatile (aka, it’s available in black)!  It’s the perfect jacket to throw on if you’re heading to the gym, running errands downtown or grabbing lunch with a close friend.

Another Fashion Week has come and gone in Toronto and If you work in the Canadian fashion industry , last week was probably one of the busiest times of the year for you.  I know for myself it was jammed packed with attending shows, fittings, castings, social gatherings, after parties and everything else in between. I had a few different looks that I put together for the week but I wanted to showcase this all black get up that I put together, it was definitely the highlight of them all for me. I’m not the biggest enthusiast for turtlenecks but I decided to put it into play with a black blazer, marled knit joggers and my suede chelsea boots. I think in the end, the look came together really nicely – giving off a very dapper look while providing comfort all at the same time. The Turtle Neck | Style PostThe Turtle Neck | Style PostThe Turtle Neck | Style PostWhat I’m Wearing
