This is Paradise

Yes, it’s the time of the year, again. Bombarded with countless assignments and papers (and final exams in the upcoming weeks!), we thought that it would be a good idea to take a Sunday off and enjoy our time with friends.

After having a satisfying brunch at Peterpan and a relaxing coffee break at Forget Me Not (which also means more posts coming!), we accidentally stumbled upon the ‘famous’ graffiti ally right by Queen St. West. The whole art community is filled with massive amount of colourful artworks on their garage doors and walls.

One unique fact about this ally, is that the contribution to the artwork is legal and it constantly changes. It is a free of charge, a killometer long art gallery that you cannot go without bringing a camera! Once you turn a corner, you will be back to the busy street with lots of space for snack, drink or meal.

Yu: Today, I finally got to wear my Belted Midi-dress from Topshop. A simple design, it comes in finished with soft texturing, featuring a low cut neckline which highlights more femininity to the overall outfit. Also, the deep green color adds a little bit of elegance and tranquil feeling. The weather was still too cold to wear the dress by itself, so I paired it with my thrifted cardigan, and pair of grey tights for some extra warmth. Last but not least, can’t step out the door without my Old Skool Vans! Not only its look, but its the comfortableness of these gems that makes me keep coming back to them when it comes to picking shoes for my outfits.

Yico: The black swing dress is from Damo Studio, a Chinese brand, includes a group of individual designers that simply follows minimalist style. This piece is classic and very functional as it has big pockets! The half sleeves is just so nice for now because it’s still chill in Toronto, and I like how they decorate the cuffs with those moon-shaped circles. The most exciting part of this dress is that its backless, which makes it more feminine and subtle. To play with it, I matched with a shell brooch to create a strong black and white contrast. Lastly, with a wine cashmere scarf from YSL gives some colours to my overall look.
