#ShoesdayTuesday: Sneakers

I went to New York a couple of weeks ago with Nike and I got some serious sneaker envy. Here's the thing: New Yorkers wear sneakers with everything. Seriously. And they make them look insanely cool somehow, not like a morning commuter who changes into her heels when she gets to work. So this #ShoesdayTuesday is dedicated to sneakers.

Here's what I'm loving:

Last-Minute Halloween Costumes You Can Wear After Halloween

style-rx.ca: Last-minute Halloween costumes

Halloween seemed to have completely crept up on me this year (seriously...totally missed the memo that everyone was celebrating last weekend), and at this point, finding a costume can be kind of tricky.

With only a few days left until the 31st, most of the good costumes are sold out of stores already, leaving us procrastinators with slim pickings. Plus, do we really want to be shelling out a ton of cash for a costume this late in the game?

Well, not to fret my loves, I've got some last-minute costume ideas featuring pieces you already own, and stuff you can wear after your festivities. Win-win, right?

Here are some last-minute costume ideas you can wear after Halloween:

Much like a real-life boyfriend, finding the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans can be quite the challenge. It needs to fit you just right -- but not be too clingy or too baggy (or distant).

style-rx.ca: How to prevent foundation from caking

My skin has been a huge pain in my derrière lately (think lots of red patches, pimples, and all that fun stuff). I've literally had to put layers of concealer and foundation in order to cover it all up, but the result was a cake-face, and it was NOT a good look.

Luckily, on a recent trip to the MAC Cosmetics counter, I learned a really neat trick to avoid the cake face.

How to Wear: The Boyfriend Jean

style-rx.ca: How to wear the boyfriend jean

I used to hate wearing pants. I would even brave the dreaded Canadian winter in several layers of tights under skirts and dresses simply because I refused to wear pants, especially jeans. 

I only recently introduced pants into my wardrobe (much to my friends' surprise) and to be honest, I don't know what I was thinking earlier! Now, jeans have become an integral part of my wardrobe (seriously..what took me so long?!), and while my closet has been mainly stocked with skinnier styles, I have become pretty obsessed with the look of boyfriend jeans.
