Fashion Fix: Holidays

I've had trouble getting into the holiday season, but I feel like I'm finally in the mood now that the snow has fallen. The holidays always make me think of cozy knits, plaid, mugs of hot chocolate, bows, and of course, sparkles. 

If you're having difficulty getting in the holiday spirit, check out this week's fashion fix:

Budget-Friendly Ways to Dress for a Holiday Party + Kardinal Offishall’s Annual Xmas Party for Free The Children!

The holidays are literally upon us, and 'tis the season of being broke. Between Christmas shopping, furniture shopping (yes, a big move coming soon!) and splurging on winter skincare products in an attempt to save my parched epidermis, I'm on a seriously tight budget.

So when I got invited to attend "Free the City", Kardinal Offishall's 15th annual Christmas party in support of Free The Children on December 19th, I, of course, had a "Omg, what am I going to wear, ESPECIALLY when I do not have the means to spend a ton of money on a dress right now!" moment.

Shop My Closet on Trend Trunk!

Trend Trunk Style-Rx Blogger Fashion Week

A little while ago, I wrote about Trend Trunk, an online consignment shop that's based in Canada. 

Trend Trunk is great because they pretty much do all the work for you when it comes to shipping and handling. Items are free to post, and you actually get 80 per cent of the sale -- which is a lot more than most consignment shops.

I've officially launched my Trend Trunk closet, and I'm so excited to share it with all of you!

Lust List: Beats by Dre Alexander Wang

When tech and fashion merge together, it's a beautiful thing, especially when the collaboration is between two of the most sought-after fashion and tech brands: Alexander Wang and Beats by Dre.

Alexander Wang has partnered with Beats by Dre to create a custom line of products just in time for the holiday season -- and I'm officially adding these items to my Christmas wishlist.

Fashion Fix: Think Pink

As much as I wear black, deep down inside I'm truly a girly girl. My eye is instantly drawn to anything frilly or poufy and I have a love affair with the colour pink.

While I used to associate pink with spring (Easter, flowers, etc.), it was clear on the fall '13 runways that this girly hue makes a great colour for the colder months as well.
