I haven’t featured anyone for True Queen of the week…in Months! So when I saw Karis post this photo to her Facebook I was inspired and excited because I knew she was the next style Queen on my hit list. Karis is obviously gorgeous and has the style knowledge to match, her white sleeveless shirt, mint colored skinnies and nude/orange sandals have an air of high sophistication and cool summer simplicity. LOVING IT!
Residing in the bustling city of Toronto Karis was nice enough to answer a few questions about her style for us:
What beauty products do you swear by? For beauty products I swear by Mac lipstick and Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner
How would you classify your style? I’d call my style uhhh casual sheek? Lol never been asked
Favourite summer trend? My favorite summer trend is definitely bold colors and prints, my least is those hideous clingy polyester dresses that have all those blingy accents…u know those ones lol the Malvern/Cedarbrae dresses especially worn with tights
(LMAO I know exactly what your talking about! Toronto Catties!)
Check the rest of the interview after the jump!
Rihanna’s a bombshell! I love it! Especially because she kept some darkness around the roots, it’s almost like an admission to the fact this is not suppose to be perceived as her actually hair color, just a girl trying to have fun with a little experimentation. What I do love how ever is this look; over the knee boots, paired down from street walker status to approachable sex kitten. A cool orange sweater and cut off jeans complete the look.
How do you feel about this look or Ri’s hair? Royal or spoiled??

If your practical like me and consider comfort and the weather before putting anything on, then don’t be too quick to rule out the idea of wearing pants to bring in the New Year.
What better way to bring good fortune your way in 2012 except in a pair of solid gold trousers? They add the glitz required for the occasion and let’s face it, when else is this color any more appropriate?
I’d keep make up minimal; using gold’s and browns for shadow with the exception of a bright red lip. Match your lip to your clutch and keep it moving till the clock strikes 12! I finished this look with a pair Valentino open toes pumps, and a sheer Tibi shirt. If you’re not one for the outright sparkle that New Year’s is known for this is a nice let’s call it “conservative” alternative.
As much as I would love to hit the streets and party this year, I think it’s more likely that I’ll park my butt in front of the TV at home to watch the countdown by a warm toasty fire and my own alcoholic concoction. Drink responsibly now!
I was lucky enough to be invited to the store opening of Toronto’s very own UGG Australia store opening in Yorkville Thurday night. Elated because despite that insane critisim and controversy that these fluffy boots caused I’m a huge fan and got my own pair last winter. I was converted instantly and it’s been bliss ever since!
The swanky party was great; guests were served hors d’oeuvres, while the DJ played music in the background. My best friend and I were quick to accept bottles of vitamin water and champagne as we drooled over just about every item we came across; most which would require I jump up a couple pay grades!
Held for 2 hours I think the party was a smashing success, a few ladies and gents turned out styled to the nines, including Canadian celebs Danny Fernandez and Entertainment tonight host Rick Campanelli. I had the opportunity to quickly chat and get photos with two ladies after my camera died I had to resort to my BB cam, sorry for the bad quality! You can check out my outfit at the bottom, I wanted to be warm so layered up a bunch it always seems to be colder downtown, so I think I threw on a good 5 layers.
The night was amazing reconnected with my BFF and had a great time, chatting over Starbucks and Vegan wraps from Freshii on Bloor street — highly recommend by the way!
All over these red loafers pefect with some thick winterized socks.
Those fluffy mittens look so warm!!
Love Katie’s green pants and leopard print combo, she just stood out from the crowd in them.
Some more ladies at the event kind enough to pose for me!

I want you all to meet my girl Kara. Kara and I have been working together for just over a year and became really good friends, often cramming or skipping lunch to spend our break on a power shop. She’s always up for a trip to the mall to pick up things we both know very well we don’t need. But hey that’ the best part about being a girl
I haven’t show cased any bloggers lately so I thought I’d start with a friend. I asked Kara to share a few things about her fashion sense, with us:
1. I know you love shopping very much. Very very much, lol share with us a few of your favourite spots to shop.
Everywhere and everything!! Lol but really costa blanca, urban planet, h&m, forever 21
2. Have any beauty tips you to share?
Always take care of your skin, exfoliate and moisturize. I want to keep my skin beautiful forever!! Also I think its more of a motto than tip lol but… If all else fails, look cute!! (Completely agree skincare is oh so important)
3. Name an absolute fashion/beauty item you’d go banana’s if you had to live without?
I can’t live without lip gloss. Its a necessity for me. I don’t have a fav brand though, I’m forever trying new ones.
4. Where or who do you take your inspiration from?
I love a variety of styles. But I’ll say my top 3 fashion inspirations for dressing are Beyonce, Kerry Washington and Jessica Simpson. Each very different but each of them are bold, cute, classy and sexy.
5. Favourite good eats?
Everything? Lol not really but bubble tea, almost anything Starbucks, butter chicken, chicken pad Thai, shawarmas.
6. Weirdest thing in your purse right now?
Feminine napkin wipes lol
