Kat’s Closet – Called on the Suspenders.

One of my favourite neighbourhoods in Toronto is Ossington. It’s raw. It’s real. One of my go-to accessories lately have been my suspenders. I’ve worn them with jeans and shorts and skirts. I’ve worn them up and dropped down. They’re uber cute, uber hipster and uber me. This was Saturday night. -k

Kat’s Closet – Break Those Blues.

January is the official start of the so called winter blues. I have found a positive: sales. Sales, sales, sales. Save your moola and do a little January retail therapy. This outfit is the result of just that. And colour. Mixing patterns just makes me happy. Break those so called rules. Ah, the simple life savers. -k

Kat’s Closet – Workin’ Lady.

Do you ever have those days where there seems to be a theme within your tweets and texts and coffee talks and youtube searches? A universal pattern. Today’s was “you have the coolest job.” That was the exact sentence that rang through all outlets. I do. January has been jam packed with Raptors games. And with tired eyes and a brain at full capacity as the end of the month rolls on in, I have loved every minute. Here’s a game day outfit from the role call. They won tonight, ps. Demar sank the buzzer beater and they’re coming home happy. -k

Kat’s Closet – Colour Block.

It is absolutely 3am. I’m sitting here waiting for the fella and our food. Days turn into nights turn into days. It’s a wild life, a city themed life, and even though some mornings I wake up wanting nothing but the pillow under my cheek forever, ever, I am still thankful for it all.

The Raptors are on the west coast which brings games that finish after 11pm. So after the final basket I had a 15 minute time limit to change and headed out to the city’s west end to say happy bornday to a good friend. The roomie is on the west coast too with some of my garb. So I took hers. Roomates are awesome for a second closet. Same colour, different textures. Insert Friday night… greys. And shiny pants, obviously. It’s the weekend! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! -k

Kat’s Closet – Backpacking through the City.

Honestly, some days I laugh at the amount of outfit changes I go through. This isn’t including workout gear. Yesterday I kept the tally to two. And I inserted a new accessory. Welcome my new backpack to the family. Fancy backpack. Dressed up or down, it’s perfect for my city commutes. And I’m respectful of my fellow subway goers and take it off on the tube. She took me from a shoot, to the gym, to home cooked taco dinner with the fella. She’s cute. I like her. -k

Kat’s Closet – Comfort Zone

I shuffled between the TV studio, red carpet, basketball arena and rehearsal floor this week. Honestly, just typing that gives me a happy buzz. This meant that I shuffled between city commute military boots, red high heels, my most comfortable pair of ankle booties and strappy ballroom shoes. But my go to? Chucks. Cons. Converse. That’s my comfort zone. And this was post red carpet interviews and pre shuffling to rehearsal. -k

Kat’s Closet – Peplum Please.

Weekends are always such a mad dash between work and celebratory wishes in repeat. This has perfected my functioning on too little zzz’s and multi-tasking magic. Note this outfits accessory; a scrumdiliumptious fibre one bar. I was waiting for my ride to birthday festivities and needed a quick snack to tie me over. Multi-tasking magic.

I haven’t been in H&M is eons it seems. The one closest to me is always full of chaos because of it’s downtown Toronto location but I braved the storm the other week and found a couple of cute additions to my closet. I wore these pants for the first game of the Raptors season. My choice to wear them was inspired by Beyonce’s courtside outfit for the Brooklyn Nets home opener the night before.  Nobody like B. And I’ve been rockin’ my my inner Madmen 40’s inspired ‘do all weekend too just because I felt like stepping outside of my box. Truth is, it’s completely me. Hope your weekend was magical. -k

Tomboy Chic.

That moment when someone looks you up and down and sees you smile and raise your brows at them on the way up because you noticed.

Insert the fancy question: how would you describe your style? I was looking at some old pictures and laughing because at that moment in my dad’s old polos and Mom’s vintage fur coat; damn I looked good.

Tomboy chic. This is my current phase. A skirt topped off with a toque, ripped jeans and sky-high heels or my favourite hoodie and a damn bold lip. Add a bit of 1940 elegance here and there because I am era obsessed and honestly believe I jitterbugged with the boys in a smokey new york speakeasy when everything was black, white and simple.

Every time I visit 5 inch and up I pretty much sigh outloud. She’s the tomboy chicest of the tomboy chic.

Just look… -k
