B&W Lookbook

Thursday, September 15, 2016

HI THERE. Before I start this post, I wanted to mention something quickly. Earlier in the week, I found out that I was chosen as one of the top 15 finalists for Elle Canada's Style Search contest. There were over a thousand entries so being one of the top 15 is such a surreal feeling. If you'd like to vote for me to be in the top 3, then click here to vote! You can vote everyday up until September 19 so it'd mean a lot if you took the time to do that. Obviously it doesn't matter if I win or not because being picked through hundreds of people is already an accomplishment!

I'm not one to only wear black and white outfits but lately I've been LOVING it. I'm pretty sure it's because I've been spending a lot of time with one of my favourite people in the world aka Melissa (who pretty much owns only black and white). So I thought, why not have a B&W lookbook? I realized it was another themed lookbook which I don't mind but I wanted to take it to the next level and make it into a collab with a few Canadian bloggers! I always love outdoing myself and trying to constantly improve so this is my way of outdoing my all-white lookbook (which if you follow me on Twitter, you'd know how proud I was of that post). This post will be lengthy one (because of all the photos) but I'm so stoked for you to see all 8 looks! Since Toronto weather is still summer-like, a lot of the looks could be considered both summer and autumn fashion.

Outfit 1

  • I have had this outfit planned for so long and I'm so excited to finally show it! I've worn it during the summer at work but never had the opportunity to take photos of it (especially at the location I wanted to). Detachable bows have been my thing this summer so this old ASOS one I got from a giveaway was perfect to match with my good ol' Zara lace top!
  • Outfit Details
  • Playsuit - ASOS (old)
  • Top - Zara (colour not available)
  • Bow - ASOS (similar)
  • Shoes - Aldo (old)
  • Outfit 2

  • This is my friend Jianing who I actually met on campus a couple of years ago but only started to hang out recently when we discovered we both were bloggers! She actually has a Youtube channel as well with her friend Lena where they have both beauty and fashion. She went pretty simple with her outfit and wore a black top and shorts but I absolutely love the choker she wore with it.
  • Outfit Details
  • Top - Aritzia
  • Shorts - Unknown (from Thailand)
  • Watch - Bulova
  • Bag - Mackage
  • Choker - Aldo
  • Sunglasses - EyeBuyDirect
  • Outfit 3

  • This is my friend Ty who is an upcoming blogger! He's wearing a simple black and white sweatshirt which gives such Adidas vibes. He paired it with black pants, black shoes and a white hat to balance out the black and white.
  • Outfit Details
  • Top - Forever 21
  • Pants -
  • Shoes - Converse
  • Hat - Disney
  • Outfit 4

  • It's Mikayla! If you've been following me on Instagram or my blog, you'll recognize this gem of a friend I have. Seeing her in B&W is actually really odd because she is always in something super girly and pastel! She wore palazzo pants and an off the shoulder top with cute bow details on the sides.
  • Outfit Details
  • Top - H&M
  • Pants - H&M
  • Choker - DIY'd
  • Bag - Daily Look (similar)
  • Shoes - Birkenstock
  • Outfit 5

  • I've been wanting to feature this top for so long but had no idea how to incorporate it into my blog for more than a simple #OOTD post. I got it from Preloved Boutique but it's actually from the brand, Parisian Collection. The details on it are absolutely stunning and the tassels at the bottom may be a nuisance at times but it's gorgeous. I also love how it's not a crop top!
  • Outfit Details
  • Top - Parisian Collection (via Preloved Boutique)
  • Pants - Topshop
  • Shoes - ASOS
  • Outfit 6

  • If you follow me on Instagram, then you'll realize Catherine! I met her in real life earlier in the summer but connected through Twitter because I saw that she was from Ontario and immediately asked if she was from Toronto haha. Catherine is wearing a simple striped dress from Forever 21 but added a leather jacket that looks INCREDIBLE on her.
  • Outfit Details
  • Dress - Forever 21+
  • Jacket - Addition Elle (similar)
  • Shoes - Call it Spring (similar)
  • Outfit 7

  • Ever since I went to the CO+CO launch, I fell in love with so many pieces; particularly the top you're about to see. I love the contrast trim and the slits on both sides. I wasn't about to spend that much money on it though because real student problems right? When I saw that The Hudson's Bay had a great deal on CO+CO, I immediately jumped at the chance to wear it!
  • Outfit Details
  • Top - CO+CO
  • Pants - Dynamite (old)
  • Shoes - New Look (old)
  • Outfit 8

  • Last but not least, it's my newest blogger friend Kaitlyn! I met her through Catherine after their Cityline taping. She's the cutest thing and I'm so glad she was able to be apart of it. Her outfit literally screams autumn because what's more autumn than a plaid shirt and leggings? I love that her leggings aren't just plain cotton black ones but it has a leather paneled detailing on the side to give the overall outfit more dimension.
  • Outfit Details
  • Top - Forever 21 (similar)
  • Leggings - Dynamite (similar)
  • Shoes - H&M (similar)
  • Hope you enjoyed today's post! I was so excited for it so I hope my friends and I were able to give you a bunch of fashion inspo for this summer-to-fall weather. Be sure to check out all of my friends social medias that were linked because they're all amazing and insanely sweet people :) Lastly, leave a comment down below which outfit(s) are your favourite!
