I swore off designer collaborations after lining up for Roberto Cavalli's H&M collection. Battling die-hard fashionistas for leopard print undies and sparkly gold dresses was rough. I had so much anxiety leading up to and during the event, that I decided avoiding them altogether would be better for my own well-being.
This past week, I had the chance to check the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection, and let's just say my vow has gone down the drain. I was already drooling over the Mini Satchel from photos alone, but after having seen the collection in the flesh, I'm 100% prepared to head to battle once again (and this time, more ferociously).

OMG, you guys. The fashion world's biggest girl crush, Cara Delevingne, not only has the perfect brows, cheekbones and one of the most hilarious Instagram accounts...but she also sings!
We've previously heard Miss Delevingne sing "I Want Candy" in the campaign video for Katie Grand's autumn/winter '13 collaboration with Hogan. This track, however, kind of gives us a better feel of what her voice is really like. And it's pretty damn good.
Cara also plans to foray into the acting world...so it really makes me wonder...is there anything the girl can't do?! (Be a wifey, maybe, but that's it!).
I think I just fell a little bit more in love.
And now I will continue to listen to this allllll daaaaay long.
What do you think of Cara's voice?
P.S. Let's be social media friends!

As much as I love dressing up, my favourite part of the day is when I get to change into my sweats. And while I've been living in my Roots sweats for years, my latest obsession is Lazypants.

I picked up this cobalt blue A-line skirt from Ted Baker at the new Premium Outlet Mall in Toronto. The place was insane! I've never seen so many shoppers in my life...apart from that dreaded Boxing Day I had to work retail (never again).

Sometimes life gets the best of me and I tend to get lost in all my work and lose inspiration. To feed my sartorial appetite and get inspired, I look to tumblr for beautiful images to get my creative juices flowing.
So if you're lacking some inspo, a Fashion Fix is just what the doctor ordered.
Here are a few of my fave images from this week...and be sure to visit, bookmark and/or follow style-rx.tumblr.com :)

A couple of weeks ago, I attended Boots and Hearts - Canada's largest country music festival held at Canadian Tire Mosport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.
Though I'm not a huge country music fan (aside from some Shania and Dixie Chicks...old school, I know), I've become a huge fan of country style, especially after watching Footloose (Julianne Hough's wardrobe is killer in that movie).

Wanna know something super embarrassing? I have extremely fine, thin hair...and not a lot of it. Yes, it is very long, but if you take a close look at my scalp, there really isn't much there. I am terrified of balding (it runs in my family). When I was 15, I cut off 12 inches of my hair to donate, in the hopes that it would give me good karma and the hair gods would spare me from the dreaded hair loss the rest of my family faces (yes, even the women). So when I started losing clumps of hair in the shower, I thought my time had come and that the balding process had begun.

Confession: This manicure is actually from a few weeks ago, and I've since taken it off. I'm a huge fan of CND's Shellac (who isn't, really?) but I decided to be a little bit daring and try out Artistic Nail Design Colour Gloss. Overall, I was unimpressed. Though it does look really great when it's fresh, the colour quickly faded to a yellow-ish hue, and it chipped several times. I finally got so fed up with trying to fix it, I took it off after less than a week. Sad. Artistic does have great colours, but it definitely does not have the staying power of Shellac.
Have you tried Artistic Nail Design before? Did it last for you?
