What’s It Giving?

Sigh… today was one of those ‘What Am I Doing With My Life’ days, and truthfully, just like Sway, I don’t have the answer, lol. On the plus side, the sun was shining and seeing that the decent weather days are numbered in Toronto, I decided to take advantage of it.

What’s this look giving? It’s giving me, pretty on the outside and super EMO on the inside lol! I use my site + social channels as a way to express how I feel so on days that I don’t feel like I have it all together and I decide to post, I’m going to be authentic.

That being said, just because the pandemic is getting the best of me, doesn’t mean I won’t still give you LEWKS (when I decide to post lol).

Super simple outfit but with a touch of edge. I recently got these leather boots from COS and I’m loving them. I think they pair so well with these cargo pants and the cropped knit sweater from H&M Studio.

Y’all know I love accessorizing and I feel like incorporating some of my chunky jewellery and the pop of colour from my toque really elevated this everyday look.

I’ll be back soon, and hopefully in a better mood :)>

Don’t Keep Me Waiting

@christianconfidential Happy February, happy new year, happy 2020! I’m back on the blog today with an impromptu style post.  I’ve been fairly MIA for the month of January on all of my channels. I really needed a minute to get things in order and put in some behind-the-scenes work  on a few things that you’ll start seeing shortly!

Anyways, let’s get into this look, sigh…it’s such a vibe. I got this Houndstooth-patterned Coat from H&M two weeks ago and I’m in love with it! I’ve been dressing it down a lot  but today I decided to dress it up and really test its versatility.  I wore this look to a fashion related meeting followed by an early dinner and I felt comfortable in both settings.

I hope you guys like it!

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!

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!

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!

Feels Like Summer

@christianconfidential  So, I shot this look for an Instagram project that I worked on recently for Nordstrombut I felt it was only fair to share the images on the blog too! I love this look, to me it’s effortless yet stylish and giving me a total New York summer vibe. You know, like in the middle of July when it’s humid and sunny and you just throw on a loose print shirt and some jeans?  That’s exactly where it takes me haha! Prints and pattern shirts are almost the only things I’m really into at the moment, so take this as your warning that you’ll be seeing a lot of them this season!

Fresh Notes with Prada

@christianconfidential It’s finally feeling like spring in Toronto, which I honestly can’t be more about happy about. We didn’t have a bad winter (temperature wise) but it was a very dragged out one. The older that I get, I’m convinced that I was meant to live somewhere warm all year round. I’m such a happier and productive person, it’s literally like night and day!

That being said, I’ve partnered with Prada fragrances on a social media campaign for the year and I’ve just released the second edition of the partnership. This time around we were working on digital content for their latest fragrance Prada L’Eau, which came out at the perfect moment in my opinion. The fragrance is filled with floral notes, hints of amber and red ginger – I think you guys will really like it!

For me, I always opt for fragrances that are lighter in scent and have a fresh airy vibe to them and Prada L’Eau definitely embodies all of those features. Whenever I spray it on myself, it reminds me of being somewhere tropical or the Mediterranean enjoying a night out wearing linen and just having a great time!

Since, I wasn’t able to recreate that exact vision (sigh, Imagine I was able to shoot this project in Greece LOL), I opted to shoot my images wearing linen, playing with shadows and utilizing the sun. I was really happy with how the photos came out and I hope that you guys enjoy them as well!

New Orleans

New Orleans: Photo Diary

@christianconfidential@christianconfidential

 

It’s been a while since I’ve been somewhere for the first time and until my most recent trip, I didn’t realize how much I miss that feeling. Earlier in the month, my cousins and I decided to take a trip to New Orleans.  I’m not even sure why we decided on New Orleans as our destination but I’m really glad that we did.

To be honest, I didn’t know much about the city other than, it was hit really badly by the hurricane a few years ago and that they’re known for having amazing food and great artist, oh and Mardi Gras!

I was open to just taking in as much of the culture and its unique beauty during the time that I was there.

I really don’t know how to explain New Orleans other than it’s like no other place that I’ve visited. At moments it made me feel like I was in Miami because of the palm trees, Paris because of the patio set ups outside of the restaurants,  Portland because of the architecture in the Warehouse district and the Caribbean islands because of the colour palettes – it’s truly magical!

Mother’s Restaurant (the food was amazing here!)
@christianconfidential

A huge thing that made my experience in NOLA so exceptional was, the people! I’m not going to lie, I feel like the people in New Orleans restored my faith in humanity (seriously). Everyone was so friendly and so accommodating, it was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. To know and hear about all of the things that some of these people have endured with hurricane Katrina and to see how positive they are, it was so beautiful and refreshing!

I feel like the universe wanted me to see this city for many reasons and I’m so glad that I was able to.  I’m not sure if I shared this on the blog before but I’m really into connecting with higher spirits and I’ve always had a fascination with psychics and their practices since I’ve been a kid (it’s not for everyone).  I ended up doing some research on a boutique before arriving in the city, that provides psychic readings, spiritual guidance and sells crystals, called Earth Odyssey.

One afternoon while exploring the city, I ended up right in front of the store and decided to check it out! Luckily for me, they had an opening for a reading with their psychic and without hesitation I did it! It was honestly one of the most amazing experiences I have had and the reading was very accurate. If you’re into that stuff and happen to be visiting NOLA, I’d recommend stopping by.

As always, I took my camera and iPhone X  around with me for you guys to get a glimpse into my trip! Feel free to scroll down and see some of my personal highlights.

Until my next adventure,

Streetwear Basics

@christianconfidential

So, I’ve been away from the blog for about two weeks now but for good reason! It was Toronto Men’s Fashion Week + Women’s Week which meant that my schedule was all over the place (more than usual). That being said, I’m finally catching up on my travel and style content from New Orleans!

I shared this look on Instagram  and you guys seemed to really like it so it only made sense to share the full look + details on the blog, as well.

I love this look, this might actually become my summer uniform for 2018! Although I was in New Orleans, this outfit gives me complete California vibes. It’s the whole ‘effortless’ yet ‘put together’ feel that really wins me over! I wore this look on one my first afternoons alone exploring the city. I wanted to feel comfortable and myself and this was what I came up with.
