You Know The Vibes

@christianconfidential Look who decided to come back on the blog before the end of 2019! Honestly, I am more than ready to kick off the new year. 2019 was a very tumultuous year for me. A lot of ups, a lot of downs, and A LOT of time spent figuring out what I would like to do next!

That being said, I’m happy to say that in the new year I’ll be working on a new series that’ll be incorporating  a lot more of my personality, other people and highlighting my style work!

I promise that  this will be something that you guys are going to love.  My team and I are in the process of ironing everything out and the more we flesh out the details the more excited I am for you guys to see it!

Enough about that though, let’s get into this look! When I say that I am in love with this coat, I really mean that I am in LOVE with this coat. It’s my latest item from COS and I’ve been wearing it non stop.

It’s the perfect coat to throw over a casual outfit that just elevates the entire look. This is a vibe that I’d wear to run errands, attend Sunday brunch or go on a solo movie date. I hope you like it!

A Track Suit Moment


@christianconfidentialIt’s been a while since I’ve last featured a track suit on here. Don’t get it twisted though, I wear them often but I actually haven’t bought a new one in a while.

It’s finally starting to feel like fall in the city and this shade of green definitely represents the season. This fit is from a brand called Wood Wood and they carry it at one of my favourite Canadian stores Hudson’s Bay. A good track suit for me, is comfortable, fits well, and has swag.

I could wear this look to the movies, to grab a bite or to run errands around my neighbourhood.

Business Man

@christianconfidential I’m a business man and I mean business in this look! I shot this outfit a few days ago and I felt like such a boss wearing it. This is one of those looks that you put on when you’re feeling good about yourself and you’re ready to take on the world! I love this oversized blazer that I picked up from ASOS and how it just completes the vibe. I could’ve opted for plain black denim but I felt that the leather pants component added a bit more luxe and edge.

See a few more pictures that I snapped below. I hope you guys like it!

Le Pliage LGP by Longchamp

@christianconfidential

I’m back on the blog today to talk about a look that I shot the other day, that I love! I actually shot a look very similar to this while I was living in London but dressed it up this time around by adding a black turtleneck,  suede Saint Laurent boots and some new accessories.

I recently got the Le Pliage LGP belt bag from Longchamp and couldn’t wait to style it. I love how it pairs with this look, especially over my patent jacket – it’s such a vibe!

This is an outfit that I would confidently wear to a show for fashion week, an event or even to a chic restaurant. I’m one of those people that doesn’t shy away from standing out, especially with my outfit selections!

Eternity by Calvin Klein

@christianconfidentialHey guys, I just wanted to jump on here quickly to share some pictures from a special project I recently completed, highlighting  Calvin Klein for Hudson’s Bay. This was a lifestyle project revolving around one of my favourite scents from the brand, Eternity!

My team and I shot a cool video as well as the images that you can see below. I had such a fun time bringing this concept to life. It’s projects like these that I feel the most fulfilled creatively. Click here to see the video!

Toronto Home Tour Pt. 1


Christian Confidential Well guys… I think I’m officially becoming an adult. It’s taken a long time to get here but I think I’m slowly morphing into one. I came to this conclusion after moving back to Toronto and noticing how  picky I was when it came to deciding on how I’d like to decorate my new space. Honestly, beforehand I never really gave interior decorating much attention, as long as my home was modern, clean and minimal, I was cool with it.

This time around, I really wanted my space to reflect my personality, my interests and my distinguished style. It took me a while to really figure out what I wanted but two months later, I’m finally content with the overall vibe and aesthetic of the living room.

The words that I would use to describe the space are; minimal, clean, light, cozy, feminine, masculine, hints of luxury, fashion forward, and thought out.

I really wanted to create a space that I would be comfortable in, that would really showcase who I am and was welcoming. The first thing that I purchased was a floor length mirror. I knew that I didn’t want  to have a tv in the living room and would much rather prefer a statement wall that would include a full length mirror (which helps in making the space seem larger) and accent table (Terrace Side Table from West Elm)  that would house some of my favourite items.

Christian ConfidentialChristian ConfidentialYves Saint Laurent Christian ConfidentialThe second thing I purchased, which took the longest to both decide on and have delivered, was my couch. I wrestled between getting a light or dark coloured couch FOREVER! Ideally, if I wasn’t accident prone I would’ve opted for a lighter colour but knowing how I am, I thought getting a darker colour, would be more practical. I ended up getting this  couch from Structube and ultimately, I’m happy with my decision.

Once I finalized the couch and creating the statement wall featuring the mirror, everything else came together rather easily. I’m not afraid of mixing  gold with silver so choosing the gold accent table that I opted for and putting it beside the mirror (which, I purchased from Ikea)made sense to me, aesthetically.

I decided to get a clear/glass coffee table to provide the illusion of more space, which I also think compliments the floor length mirror’s silver finishing. Christian ConfidentialWhat’s left? The carpet, accessories and art work. In regards to the carpet, I wanted something light in colour and felt good under the feet. Truthfully, I like this carpet but I’m also open to a carpet with more of a  silky/shine finish and may end up changing it later on.

In terms of accessories, which was probably my favourite stuff to pick out, I got a lot of them from H&M Home.  Naturally, being a fan of the brand for their diverse men’s offering, I was excited to see what they had in store for their home collection. From the cushions on the couch, to the decorations on the coffee table and candles and vases on the accent table – I was able to select them all from H&M!

Last but not least, the artwork on the wall. Sigh, they’re both from an artist that goes by the name Peytil who’s located in Sweden. I originally got these two prints for my flat in London and I just couldn’t leave them behind. I am beyond in love with them and in so many ways, I feel like they totally reflect my personality and complete the space. If you’re looking for something some art work to spice up your space, I’d recommend checking out his site as he has so many great options. The two that I got are titled; Matador and Jules – I also have my eyes on The Gemini print as well and he ships worldwide.

I hope that you guys like this post as much as I enjoyed putting my living room together! I’ll be back once, I’ve completed the whole space with a home tour – probably via Youtube though! Stay tuned for some fall fashion content coming soon and scroll down for more pics!

Guns Out

@christianconfidential

‘Sun’s out, guns out’, just incase the title didn’t make sense to ya (lol). Even though we’re in the middle of September, I’m still not ready to retire the sleeveless vibes just yet!

This is a pretty simple, yet chic look that I put together.  The top and bottom are from COS and I paired them with some Balenciaga ‘Dad Sneakers’ to complete the outfit. I could’ve opted for plain white kicks but I thought why not do a bold red colourway to make it a bit more fun!

I hope you guys like it!

A Powder Blue Moment

@christianconfidential Hey guys, I hope that you’re all doing well – I still cannot believe that it’s September already! It feels like just yesterday I decided to move back to Toronto from London – sigh, time is moving so quickly! Anyways enough of wondering where the time is going, let’s get right  into this look.

 I’ve actually had this powder blue double breasted blazer from ASOS  in my closet since the beginning of the summer, and I was waiting for the right moment to wear/shoot it. I don’t know what made it the right moment this week, but it was, and I’m in LOVE with the outcome! I wanted this piece to be the statement of the entire outfit so I kept everything else very sleek and minimal. Since it’s oversized, I could’ve went with a skinny pant but I decided to add volume to the look by pairing it with some wide leg trousers. Which in my opinion,  really accentuates the overall  silhouette of the look.

This is one of those outfits that’s very versatile and can be worn to a  business meeting, a fancy lunch at L’Avenue (I have Paris on my mind,sigh) or to an early evening event  (I wore this to the first day of Toronto Fashion Week). I hope that you guys are into  it!

Like A Diamond

@christianconfidential Sigh, I’m really going to miss the warm weather! There’s something about summer and shooting in the warmth that just hits different. My skin is glowing and the camera picks up all the colours in the outfit so well.

Anyways, back to the outfit haha. I was going for a casual vibe with a hint of something different with this look and that’s exactly what I got. I love a good flowing shirt and I’m in love with this colour. You guys already know how much I adore wide-leg trousers and these ones from COS did not disappoint. I completed the look with a pair of Reebok sneakers and some accessories from Thomas Sabo.

You could catch me wearing this outfit to a daytime fashion event, brunch at Soho House, or on vacation!
