Theory.

theory wide leg pants 5

Well hello there. It’s been a little while since my last post, I’ve been itching to post a little something new. Actually, these photo’s were taken a couple of weeks ago, one beautiful sunny afternoon when the fall colours were just beginning to peak. Currently outside my window it’s the most miserable rainy evening…that icy cold rain, that despite even the finest woolly merino sweaters, a chill sets in the bones. It’s that time of fall here in Toronto, where the beautiful toasty colours are beginning to dissipate, and an icy shade of grey seems to cover everything, a familiar sleepiness sets in…curling up with a tea is the only remedy (chamomile; me as I write).

How perfect are these Theory wide leg pants? I am over the moon and above the stars in love with wide leg pants & flares right now. In fact any time I put on a pair of skinny jeans these days (lazy tried-and-true uniform days), I feel a certain sense of defeat and then I spend the rest of the day under a cloud of dated skinnies regret. I love how fresh the wide cut is, its such an interesting, lengthening silhouette. This pair also have these great sailor style details, with a higher cut waist, and buttons along the pockets, love.

On another note, I’ve been working very hard on bringing regular updates to The Amber Edit Shop. Sourcing fantastic vintage pieces is a joyful pleasure of mine, and because I’ve accumulated so many beautiful items, I’m quite literally running out of room to house them. Thus, new pieces are coming to the shop all the time. Its a personal goal to have something new in the shop every day, so please do check back because even my most beloved pieces will be up for grabs…most notably right now you’ll find some pretty major holiday dresses for a song!

Red Sweater, Denim & Leather.

toronto style blogger fall style red sweater leather jacket 15

Happy Tuesday folks, hope everyone is surviving the Mercury Retrograde situation…I was wondering why my life was falling down around my ankles like a worn out stocking. On the brighter side, here’s a look I plan on putting on repeat this fall; cant go wrong with a light sweater, boyfriend denim and a leather jacket thrown over the shoulders. Layering season has arrived!

I picked up this vintage leather jacket a little while ago at my local Kind Exchange. It was kind of an impulse purchase and when I got it home I wasn’t entirely convinced I’d be keeping it. But as it turns out, due to the fantastic construction and the way the old leather is worn in, I love the look of it thrown over the shoulders (also the gorgeous wine colour lining!). I’m working on embracing a variety of outerwear thrown over the shoulders rather than worn. Certainly not a new look in streetwear or style blogging, but in terms of integrating the idea into real life (from subway cars, to errands to cocktail hour) its a very fun sartorial challenge – more to come, I’ll let you know how it goes.

Don’t forget to pop over to The Amber Edit Shop on Etsy, lots of new items are coming to the shop (I’ve got sultry velvet coming your way) Etsy: TheAmberEdit

Date Night Look: Black on Black

toronto style blogger fall style streetstyle 2

I love this simple black-on-black date night look. The humidity in Toronto right now is hovering somewhere around out-of-control percent. Keeping cool while looking put together is a prominant sartorial challenge. To remedy this, I’m loving light tanks like this one with little snap buttons, paired with something more structured like this vintage pencil skirt. Topping off the look with a couple of layered, delicate gold necklaces.

I picked up this skirt with matching belt recently and have been creating looks around it ever since. I get so excited about putting together transitional looks, this skirt was a perfect addition to my wardrobe for this purpose. This skirt will easily stretch from hot late-summer nights to chilly fall evenings.

Hope everyone is enjoying this gorgeous labour day weekend, I personally spent mine beach side – as per my Instagram

Don’t forget to stop by The Amber Edit Shop over on Etsy, I have lots of fall pieces coming to the shop (get ready for a major peter pan collar & the perfect strapless cocktail dress, coming soon). Etsy: TheAmberEdit

Cheers

Recently, I had the pleasure to swing by The Everyday Pop-Up, for The Everyday presents: The Bloggers Tea event, to shop the vendors and enjoy an afternoon of fashion and refreshments. The shop itself is a sweet little space, a tiny dog rested happily in the corner. But more importantly were the other corners, filled with phenomenal vintage pieces, vintage jewellery, and little treasures. I was blown away by the selection of truly unique vintage items…even now writing this, I have pangs of regret for the pieces left behind…I did manage to score an amazing color blocked parlour dress for myself however, from the vendor Wild Thing Vintage (to be featured in a later post)…I highly recommend stopping by The Everyday, to score that vintage item missing from your life…

Speaking of looks from the past…I was a young teenager the last time I wore a pair of flares. When I was in middle school, every girl who was any girl was rocking the look. I remember begging my Mum to take me to Siblings, or LaSenza Girl, to buy these amazing ‘new’ jeans…the ones that hug the hips and thigh, and taper away from the knee to perfectly cover my platform sandals. So imagine my glee, when this look started popping up again. First on Pinterest, here and there. Then storming the runways of Tom Ford and Derek Lam…and of course the Coachella renditions

Lucky for me, I’ve had this pair of Guess flares tucked away, for just such a second (or third?) coming. The look is so simple, so streamlined, so tall…even when you are not. It makes me wonder why this silhouette would disappear. They say in fashion what goes around comes around…this is one such case I am very happy to revisit…
