Coriander SS’13 :: Look #1

Posted on


Hello darlings! Hope you are doing well. Remember I mentioned in my previous post about a project that I can’t wait to share it with you guys? Well, after working on it the last few days, I’m ready to reveal it! (Drum roll, please!) TA DAAAA! My very first collaboration with a local boutique – CORIANDER, a beautiful clothing, home and gift store, located in the heart of downtown Guelph, Ontario.

Coriander has always been my favourite clothing store in this little town where I called home. One of my favourite purchase from Coriander is this beautiful maxi dress from last Spring. They carry the most unique pieces that you can’t find in a mall. I was thrilled when Sarah, the owner of Coriander agreed let me on board with this project, which is to create a Spring/Summer lookbook exclusively for them. I had this light bulb moment when I was browsing through their website and all I see is their super cute and unique home decor and gift items. Then I thought to myself what if I volunteer to help them to showcase their amazing clothing and fashion accessories. So I proposed this idea to my lovely friend, Jane, who is a also a sales associates at Coriander and says she will run it by Sarah. Voila! Here I am with the first look for their Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook.







Style: Feminine, romantic

Key items: Anything that’s soft, delicate and flowy

Thing to look for: Smooth fabric (lightweight and sheer fabrics like chiffon, delicate cottons, lace, satin and silks); soft palette (light hues such as white, cream, nude, lavender, pale yellow and baby blue); delicate patterns and prints (flower petals, little birdies or bows); ruffles, frills and ‘girlie’ trims (bows and ribbons)

Accessories: Refined and whimsical jewelry pieces; delicate vintage pieces like string of pearls; dainty shoes with a little heels


Thank you so much for reading and hope you like this post! Stay tune for look #2. If you live around Guelph, please drop by Coriander and I’m sure you will be surprised by their treasures. If you’re too far away, how about showing some love by checking out their well-designed Coriander’s website and Facebook! See you soon:)

Spring 2013 :: Black & White

Posted on


Hello hello to all my darlings! So sorry that I haven’t been posting in the last week. I was caught up with a project that I’m currently working on, that I can’t wait to share it with all of you:) We just finished with the photoshoots yesterday and looks like I’ll be spending my weekend editing them. So, stay tuned!

For now, let me introduce one of the spring’s biggest trends that you might already have abundance of them in your closet. No need to splurge on pastel and neon pieces, or to scratch your head thinking if you can pull it off or not. It’s the black and white trend that was seen on the runways of Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs. When black and white become a duo, suddenly things are high-contrast and visually interesting. This look can be classic, chic, fresh or modern, depending on your creativity. The best part? It’s so easy. My favorite way to wear black and white is with colorblocking, and mixing up prints and patterns. Also, don’t forget about accessories, shoes and purses, to complete the look. The bonus is that both black and white work well with colors, just like what I’d here with the pop of red!
