Studio Fits

BB’s – Another style post in less than a week, who do I think I am?! I wore this look on Thursday to attend my friend Fefe’s studio session in the city and thought it was such a vibe that I had to shoot it. It’s the simplicity of the fit that I love mixed in with the edgy vibes that the leather pieces (jacket + boots) lend.

I’m happy to see that the oversize trend is being carried over into 2023 and I’m fully embracing it. I usually opt for something more fitting on top if I’m wearing baggy pants but I decided to pair these pants with my oversized Ader Error tee and I think it paired really well.

I wore this to the studio but I could see myself wearing this to a casual dinner, or running errands or even to a meeting.

Yacht Day Anyone?!?!

Hi angels… well Summer has been underway and I’ve got a lot of updating to do! I’ll start with this little yacht day that I attended with my bb Fefe for Grey Goose! First of all, let me tell y’all that it was hot AF and we definitely didn’t get the memo (judging from our outfits) – but we gave LOOKS nonetheless!

I wore all black (obviously), this new tank I got from Spencer Badu, loose + wide leg trousers from COS, shades from Ambush and my classic Saint Laurent boots.

We had the best day, listening to music, trying out different Grey Goose cocktails and just taking in the vibes on the water.

I snapped a few pics as usual so take a peak below.

Fit Check – Gemini Edition

Back on the blog today, with a long overdue post (sigh… I know). I owe you guys a life update, which I’ll get to really soon but for now I’ve got a style post that I hope y’all will like! I wore this look the other night for my birthday dinner with two of my girlfriends.

I love the simplicity of this look as well as the effortless vibes it’s giving. This summer you’ll definitely see me in a lot of crop tops and loose fit denim – consider this your warning, lol.

This could be worn in the day but it’s definitely more of an evening vibe for me ie; dinner dates, drinks with friends or even for an event.

Find Your Inner Iris

Look who decided to come back to his blog, lol. I’ve got a cute post for you guys featuring a look from H&M‘s latest collaboration with style icon, Iris Apfel. Last week I had an appointment with H&M to preview their latest collection and fell in love with a few pieces. You guys know that my go-to colour palette is very neutral but that being said I do love a good pop of colour – especially for the right occasion!

The collection is traditionally “women’s” but y’all know I don’t subscribe to giving clothing a gender. Clothes are clothes, and if you’ve got a body and the pieces fit, you rock it – and rock it, is what I did gworls!

The team over at H&M rented a photo studio and had racks of the collection out for each appointment attendee + a photographer on deck to shoot us in the look(s) we wanted to wear.

I opted for this bright yellow and purple set and just wanted to have fun with it. I mean in my past career, I may have been a model (lol), so I may know how to take a cute pic or two.

Anyways, I’ve included my favourite 4 images in this post and the full #IrisApfelxHM collection hits stores and online in Canada on April 14th, 2022!

XOXO

Stylish IRL

I know that you may recognize this look from my ET Canada segment last month, but I remixed it… a little, lol. On the show, I wore this blazer with wide-leg trousers and chunky boots and this time, IRL – I opted for a slimmer pant and paired it with classic Saint Laurent Wyatt Harness boots.

This look is a vibe, and I’m loving this vibe. I promise you that if I’m attending any weddings this SS22, this or something similar to this, is what I’m wearing. It’s sexy, yet sophisticated and still comfortable – I rarely compromise comfort for fashion.

Not much more for me to say here, other than keep scrolling to see more pics bb’s!

I Love My Fit But I’m Ready For Spring

Whew, chile! I swear to you if there’s one thing in life that loves to take its time is spring in Canada, lol. I love my outfit but I’m so ready for spring-like temperatures.

I’m going to keep this post short. This was a cute casual look I put together the other day for an outing that I ended up really liking and decided that I had to shoot + share with y’all.

I love a good (faux) shearling jacket moment and this one I picked up recently from H&M and it’s very cozy. It pairs well with this otherwise all-black look and adds the right amount of contrast if you ask me.

This look is giving cozy and casual yet still put together, so don’t try me, lol. I hope that you guys like it.

Joe Fresh x Sasha Activewear Campaign

Well, 2022 is off to a cute start with this campaign launch! We actually shot this project in late 2021 and everything was under embargo until the launch date (as per usual). That being said, this project was harder to keep quiet about because this campaign was a collaboration with one of my closest friends and the brand Joe Fresh.

You guys have definitely seen Sasha around on the blog throughout the years and definitely via my social media. We’ve been friends for well over 10 years and it’s just amazing to see how much she’s accomplished and grown both personally and professionally. This is her second collaboration with Joe Fresh and their largest collection thus far. The pieces fit very well, are super affordable and very size inclusive.

I played a dad for the first time on set – a young dad to be exact, lol and to the cutest little boy, Leilan. Maxwell (Sasha’s bb girl) was on set too and a few more familiar faces – it was a family affair. I’ve included a few of the campaign pics – shot by David Pike below but there’s plenty more.

Also, if you happen to stop by Joe Fresh’s flagship store at Bathurst + Lakeshore… you might see yours truly and Sasha when you’re checking out – like the pic above! 🙂

Kicking-Off NYFW with ET Canada

So, I’ve just wrapped my first on-camera segment of 2022 and it was a cute! It was with my friends over at ET Canada, myself, Stacey McKenzie and Keshia Chante discussed our favourite winter trends, gave our thoughts on Men’s Fashion Week and what to expect for New York Fashion Week!

I love working with those girls! We’ve all known each other for quite some time and have great chemistry in person and on camera. I’m hoping that this year we’ll be heading back in studio to film fashion panels as it’s much more fun. I’m also manifesting that i’ll be on camera a lot more this year either as myself or as a character that reflects who I am – fingers crossed!

I wanted to give y’all a closer look at my outfit for the show. I went for an all-black vibe with pops of colour in my accessories, lol gold and silver. I wore an oversized blazer with some pleated wide-leg trousers from COS. I got so many questions about my bracelets and they’re from Lisa Gozlan and my monogram C necklace which is from Jenny Bird.

I’ve included the link to the segment here, feel free to give it a watch!

Skincare Tips: From Me To You

HI BB’S – I wanted to jump on the blog and share something that I’ve recently added to my skincare routine. I actually shared these images from a campaign I did via social media but didn’t want to leave my blog readers out of the mix!

Okay, so I’ve recently started taking collagen regularly and the brand I’m using is called Neocell. We produce collagen naturally but the older we get (even if we’ll forever look 25 haha), the less collagen our bodies produce. Taking collagen helps with hair, nails, skin, muscles, bones and so much more.

I’ve noticed the biggest change in my nails and sweetie, that’s enough for me, lol. I take two different kinds of collagen from the brand. Neocell Collage Protein Peptides which is the product featured in these images. I take 1-scoop of this post workout either mixed into my juice or a smoothie.

The second one that I take is called Neocell Derma Matrix Collagen – I take this one on my rest days from the gym.

I really like these pictures and I’m always going to put y’all on game, aka my new beauty secrets!

Talk soon,

Christian
