Welcome to my photo journal. I'm a full-time photographer based in Chicago + part-time dreamer. Full on audiophile in love with music, love for fashion and art.

The Lomography Gallery Store in Toronto hosted a launch party for the release of its new family member the Diana Baby 110 & I was real happy to be able to attend. Knowing that I'm a big fan of Lomography since 2005, I was speed walking my way between streets knowing that the store's promising atmosphere filled with fun film cameras awaited me just down Queen Street West. It was a rather small but intimate gathering where I actually got to meet wonderful people over a few bites of fresh fruit, brownies, and drinks. Here are some photos to illustrate the night of Lomo!

 My online shop is now officially re-opened. Yay!
Click the bunnies I drew

I swear I don't coordinate with cats around my neighborhood to come supervise my photo shoots!

Yay! First, fresh, brand new pair of Jeffrey Campbells. I ended up going with Taupe because the lovely people at B2 are the only ones that carry them in this color here in Toronto. I think they will fit my style quite properly just like the sales lady told me they go with my "soft cute look"

I decided to take these babies on a test walk with my dotted tights from Topshop, denim dress by Mavi and round sunglasses from H&M.


End of summer, fresh weather, abandoned kitchen chairs on front lawns, & cats. In this look I was lucky to be able to still wear my mint green summer dress from H&M along with my sandals from GAP. I like to style most of my dresses with belts so here I added my elastic belt from Topshop. The tote is from Nordstrom Chicago when I got my first bottle of Marc Jacob's perfume Daisy. It all fits too perfectly to name it after the infamous Ms. Daisy Buchanan from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gastby.

I've been longing to own a pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes for accurately 3 years and I only own one pair of heels so it seems pretty fair that I stock one of these babies in my wardrobe. The question is: which one?! There's far too many styles that I love but I am looking for something comfortable to begin with. I have quite difficult feet so I prefer to buy shoes in person rather than online. I know, it is quite a drag because there are more options online but I don't want to pay & go through the hassle of shipping back a shoe that doesn't quite fit right. The two Lita's that I listed above are available here in Toronto at Little Burgundy which are extremely comfortable. The Roks Wedge is available on Urban Outfitters online store and I've seen a lot of positive feedback on them regarding comfort and true size fit. Few customers complain that they do run small and fit snug but you can always walk into a UO store to exchange and refund purchases made online. 

Which was your first pair of Jeffrey Campell shoes?

Busted. I'm a huge fan of Death Cab for Cutie as well. It was real interesting how their mood was brighter and happier on Codes and Keys. I always had a theory that it might have been Ben's marriage to Zooey that cheered him up. I know I'd be ecstatic too if Miss D loved me!

Lightly starting to layer up with thin pieces from Blanco & Topshop. I know you all are probably real bored of my Dr. Martens but I'm not. Not quite yet.

Some of Toronto's most recognized bloggers where there and I had the pleasure to meet them all. Among them was Bobby Raffin, Julia Monson, Danielle Roche, & Zoe Badley. It was all sorts of wonderful as I also got to meet new people from the city. The party was infused with citrus sangrias, mojitos, and gourmet finger food. Moving over seas away from family has been hard and this will be one of the nights that helped me through keeping my chin up and smiling on. 

Some images from Bobby's blog to illustrate the evening as well as the lovely people I met!

In this look I am wearing my favorite dress from Free People, sequin skirt from express, heart shaped pocket watch necklace from Urban Outfitters and my Dr Martens boots. All dressed up and ready to attend the Gap x Lookbook Event in Toronto! Photography & editing done by Bobby Raffin (thank you!)

Still walking around the neighborhood exploring, meeting new places & oh yes! I have befriended another feline friend. It's been chilly out since it has been raining quite frequently so I am starting to layer up my cropped tops especially this one from Topshop which is one of my favorites for Fall because of its colors. I threw on my grey cardigan, pulled a pair of tights from H&M underneath my Forever 21 denim shorts, laced up my boots and went for a stroll before dark.

Umbrella - Longchamp | Denim jacket - hand me down  | dress - Forever 21 | belt - Chosen Vintage

Shortly after the rain stopped tapping the ground and the sun shone on for the last hour of the day I went out fully prepared with my navy blue Longchamp umbrella that was gifted to me by my older sister. The denim jacket from GAP was also handed down to me by her. I am a dress type of person so I accommodated my floral dress from Forever 21 with tights from Topshop and my brand new Dr. Martens boots. Also made a debut of my vintage leather braid belt from Chosen Vintage!
