Hi guys! So I thought I would give a quick update as to what I have been up to, and why I have had a lack of post lately!

 I made a youtube channel ; I am putting time into that and most ideas I have, I am putting into videos instead of blog posts! But I will be trying to juggle both better in the next couple weeks! 
(My channel is Outofashionn)

I started working my other job as well ; So now I am working 6 days a week! Which is tiring!!! I find it hard to feel inspired when I am so so tired! Its also hard to make time for a video/post when I work all the time! But I am doing my best! 

My hair change! ; So I have started wearing my hair curly! I am so not use to this. So I feel a bit self conscious and awkward. As well, I have not figured out how to make it "Work" on camera. I am pushing myself because I really love the look of big, curly, full hair! (I think this is the major reason for the lack of posts!)

So with all that being said!! I did post a haul on my youtube channel earlier today! So check it out and let me know what you think!!

Here are a couple pictures of my natural hair! I have an appointment downtown at The Curl Ambassadors on Friday! So I'm sure my curls will be a lot happier after that as well!


Okay! So that is it for today's post! Enjoy the rest of your week and I will see you soon!!

Midi & Denim

I hav wanted this dress for ages! On my day off I went to Eaton's Center (For anyone who doesn't live in toronto/canada it is a huge mall and a landmark downtown Toronto!) I was looking to get this jacket that I have had my eye on for a while (Check it out here). But while searching through the Aritzia Pop us shop, I stumbled across this beauty!! I have wanted this dress since I saw it online forever ago... So I got it.

I wore it pretty simple today, But it is an amazing piece that I know I can do a lot with. What do you guys think? (also typing this I can see the picture of my shoes, my bum is NOT that big, fyi)

Hope you guys are having a great week!

Skincare Review: Clinique Moisture Surge & Caudalie Beauty Elixir

Hi Guys, Just thought I would do a quick review on some skincare products I picked up a few months back! You know those products that are so talked about, that it just makes you not want to get them? That is how I felt about both of these products. I have heard so much hype and rave about these two products that I really held off on getting them. Now let me give you a quick run down.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a part toner, and mist of essential oils. It is suppose to create a glowing complexion, tighten pores and give an overall radiance to the skin. I enjoyed this product. I do find my skin a lot more healthy feeling. I believe all of the oils and flower extracts really made a difference on my skin. Its a handy little product to take with you on the go for a quick makeup fix. It has defiantly became a go to product for me in this crazy Canadian winter. 

Clinique moisture serge intense skin fortifying hydrator is a gel/cream that is meant to hydrate for 24 hours and repair skins natural moisture barrier. I personally found this moisturiser very heavy!!! I have normal-dry skin and this was just too much! I was using it twice a day, morning and night but it was making my skin very oily. I did stop using the product for a week or two, but realised it was almost 40$ and I was not going to waste that money. In turn it became my night time cream. It made my skin feel healthier, but it was also very heavy. I would not repurchase this product, unfortunately. 

What is a good daily moisturiser you use? I would love some suggestions!!

Like a boy.

Sometimes, I just dont want to dress pretty and sweet. I just want to dress like a boy! Because I work very often, I dont get to dress down as much as I want to. But I was feeling a little lazy so I put together this outfit. I think I looked just like a boy, but i had fun with it.

I decided to wear my basic blue 7 for all mankind jeans with my new La Notte tee and tied my vintage flannel around my waist for an 80's/90's feel. The backward cap was just the icing on the cake. I though this outfit was a little different for me, but it was easy and playful.

What do you guys think of this look? I'm personally still on the fence about it.

How I Style ; Fitted Maxi Dress

Hi guys, because I do mostly OOTD's I figured I would change it up a bit! This post will be how I style a fitted maxi dress. I used one dress throughout the whole post. It is a black maxi dress from American Apparel ( This one here! ) It was 44$ which is not too bad for a good quality black maxi! I figure in a couple of seasons when I get tired of the length, I can always cut and hem it!

Okay! So onto the outfits! I tried to do very different looks for each, So here it is! :)

Black On Black; Simple long layers, bold lips and jewelry

 Here I simply layered a long cardigan over the dress. I love the simplicity and class that this outfit has. I paired it with a thick gold chain necklace and black chelsea boots.

Winter Boho; Neutrals paired with floral for a summer feel.

 This is my favorite outfit. This taupe sweater is my go to for everything. I love the length with this dress, its an effortless look. The vintage floral head wrap is a nice touch to give a bohemian feel.

Girly Grunge; Boy-ish feel to a very feminine and sexy dress. 

 I really love how grungy this outfit turned out. I think its my comfort zone. I love to add layers and more edgy pieces because I dont like fitted dresses that show off my body too much. The layers in this outfit is perfect for that. Plus, my denim vest is one of my essentials.

Amish paradise(lol);  flowy and easy to wear, topped with a thick scarf and floppy hat 

For some reason there is only one picture of this outfit! What happened camera?!?!?! But I never wear this silk button up. But I love it in this outfit. Its flowy and a warm tone so its perfect for this time of the year or even fall. As well, this hat is a go to piece. I love how much it adds to the simplest of outfits!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I had a lot of fun putting it together!
And I will be starting up a YouTube channel!!!! Very excited for that! I will keep you posted! :)

Enjoy the rest of your week!


Review ; UNIF Hellraisers

So after waiting FOREVER and EVER my lovely boyfriend treated me to UNIF hellraisers for our anniversary back in the summer. I've had these for well over 7 months, but I think that because of the style/ price of these shoes I could only give my opinion after really using them for a while.

I'll start off by saying I have GIANT feet. And a lot of brands do not cary my size. I am a 11 women (I believe that is a 41 or 42 in UK sizes) So when we were at the store, they did not have my size, lucky me. In turn I got a 9 in mens. I was a bit bummed out because the mens shoes are obviously wider, and I'm already super self conscious about my feet! (Silly, I know) But aside from all of that nonsense, I wore the shoes all summer. I find it hard to wear them now because of the awful weather that we are having in Canada. But I can not wait till I am able to wear these again. I always got compliments on them, people loved them.

I have heard a lot of people losing spikes easily, my boyfriend in fact lost about 3 or 4. I did not have this problem. I did lose 1 spike, but I mucked up my foot getting out of my friends car. Therefor I blame it on myself. The shoes are a tad bit heavy(Could be due to my large feet), and I have occasionally hit my leg with my shoe, and it does suck. But over all, they are a really cool piece to have.  A very unique shoes and make a medioker outfit, fun!

I would recommend getting them! I love mine, and I still try and wear them even though the weather here is awful. I am looking into getting some cool socks to pair with them, so maybe I can wear them with a dress to work.

What is your opinion of the UNIF hellraisers? Do you think they are too talked about? Or do you think they live up to the hype?

Snow day face

Hey guys! Wow, has it ever been a while. I actually terribly miss writing on here and having a place to actually log my outfits, makeup and style ideas. I have basically used my Instagram (Outofashion, if you want to follow me there too) as my make shift blog. It is just easier. But, back to business! Last night in Toronto it snowed, and snowed, and snowed. Today I walked outside and the snow was almost up to my knees.

I got ready for work, regardless of the awful snow, the fact that I would be taking transit, and the fact that I was actually feeling sick. Walking to my bus stop my manager calls me and tells me to go back home. Because of the snow storm, no one wanted to leave their house. But, I had already gotten ready, So I browsed around the near by mall.... Point of this post... Here is the simple makeup look I put together. (My first Face Of The Day!)

Nars Sheer glow/Mac Russian Red/ Mac Select cover up/ Mac Warm Soul/
Mac Cream coloured base in PearlGosh Brow gel/
Essence Brow pencil in 02 brown/ Maybelline Great lash -Lots of lashes

 Sorry for the crappy quality photo! I'm getting use to my new camera!
 (Its a cannon rebel T4i)
 How has your winter been going so far?
