Aga Khan Musem has always been on our list of ‘must go to’ place for the past couple months. The simple, minimalist and peaceful atmosphere attracts many tourists every now and then but still manages to keep itself off from the busy roads, to provide an immersive experience for every visitors.

We weren’t able to actually have a tour of the museum at the time of the event, but if you look up online about this place, there are tons of good reviews and people who just loved their visit. And if you’re interested in learning and seeing Islamic art, Iranian art and Muslim Culture around the world, then you should also note this as one of your ‘must-go’ places.

Yico: If you read our blog from last winter you gonna know turtleneck is our favourite! I actually have a fun story to share with you all, particularly this piece. I first bought an exact same one in grey at Aritzia’s boxing day sale, but totally forgot it’s wool, so I just used my washing machine, and espcially put it under hot water … No doubt, it’s shrunk, and became a cropped sweater… How silly I was, so please make sure you either dry-clean any wool clothing, or hand wash it under cold water!!! Since the design is on point, I decided to buy another one, in a new colour though 🙂

Camel is just one of those colors that just refuses to go out of style. No matter what season or occasions you wear it for, it still manages to look relevant, not to mention, supersophisticated. Pairing with a pair of loose fitted wide pants certainly adds a character to the overall outfit, but the bright white color keeps it subtle and minimalistic.

Yu: As fall settles in, it’s time we sing the praises of the long, chunky turtlenecks. This high-neck staple will not only keep you warm but will also elegantly elongate your neck. A thick sweater just like the one I wore, practically goes with anything! Another two thrifted items in this week’s outfit: leather boots and suede cross-shoulder bag. Don’t underestimate the capacity this little bag can carry. I’ve fitted one disposable camera, one instant-camera, wallet, phone and a hand cream while traveling in the Czech Republic (click for the blog post!), in this tiny-looking thing.

FINALLY, after Yico coming back from Shanghai, we were able to do our long-awaited smoke grenade ‘project’. But it wasn’t easy to find a good spot without people staring at us like we are weirdos, or somebody accidentally calling cops on us. But Voilà! We found a perfect spot just behind the Sound Museum, where you can have an astonishing view of the Toronto City.

We purchased the smoke-bomb from an online website, Rocket.ca where you can get a mix of colors in different packages. Though it was a little bit pricey, it was definitely an interesting experience.

The most difficult part of this photo-shoot project was being able to capture the best moments without having the smoke smearing all over your face (as you might notice from the first couple of pictures). Hopefully, we will be able to better getting used to using these grenades, and upload even better posts sometime soon!
