#RethinkReuse with Value Village

IMG_3502xvsm

I’ve always been a fan of pre-loved clothing (that’s where this whole ‘blog’ of mine started). I’m drawn to how every piece has lived a life before living in my closet, how being fashion-forward doesn’t have to be expensive, how buying second-hand has a positive impact on the environment,…the list goes on.

My Constants with Secret Location

IMG_2805sm

You know those days…where nothing looks good? It’s not quite fitting how it’s supposed to? The moleholes of clothes all over the floor just aren’t cutting it? Those days are waaay too common lately, mainly due to a little girl growing inside of me. (2 months to go!) Continue Reading

'Style Jaunt' Glasgow Sneak Peek from Alanna Durkovich on Vimeo.

‘Style Jaunt’ in Glasgow–Sneak Peek!

We filmed ‘Style Jaunt‘ in Glasgow last September, and the mini trailer is finally out! I wrote about it briefly + included some photos from the trip in a previous blog post (CLICK HERE)! It’s a series by Air Transat + FLARE Magazine, and it’s all about finding those amazing addresses (part travel guide, part shopping guide) in a city through the eyes of Canadian fashionistas.

Stay tuned for the next instalment of episodes! They should be published next week. But for now…here’s the trailer! xo

Easy Breezy

It feels like Summer at home, which means I can finally ditch the chunky layers that make me look like a pregnant sausage, and switch it up for easy breezy dresses. Love this Lovers + Friends piece. I’ve worn it as a dress and as a top with a pair of jeans. Super versatile…AND I can still wear it post-pregnancy! Continue Reading

LA

We headed down to attend The Grammy’s with L’Oreal Paris Canada—it was unreal! Other than attending the sickest concert of all time, Mat and I had some free time to explore. It was my first time in LA, (…my trip to Disneyland in Grade 2 doesn’t count) so I was so EXCITED. Continue Reading

Introducing ‘Style Jaunt’

Last autumn, I had the opportunity to fly down to Madrid with Air Transat and FLARE Magazine to shoot the web series, ‘Style Jaunt’. The series is all about discovering those special addresses within a city–like unique restaurants, notable shopping finds, and other interesting attractions. 

There are 3 episodes in every ‘Style Jaunt’ segment. They’ve already explored Lisbon and the Puerto Vallarta. This tme ’round, Tamy Emma Pepin and I set off on our adventure to hunt down those must-see spots in Madrid!

The first episode highlighting Madrid will be released March 9! So in the meantime, take a look at the mini 15 second teaser above!

Sick

Officially sick with the cold again, or should I say my WHOLE family is sick with the cold again. Thanks to Noah’s preschool and all those darn kids. THANKS PRESCHOOL.

This moto jacket from AMENPAPA is pretty sick as well. Paired with frayed denim culottes and flowy black tunic, I’m one choker away from a full blown virus. OH WAIT, got the choker! I now have a chronic case of the chicken pox.

This post is not making sense. THANKS PRESCHOOL. Continue Reading

My Own Little Fairytale

IMG_8613xvsm

“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!” Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Carroll has a point; we’re not the same people that we were yesterday. Yesterday, I was Stevie Nicks. Today, I’m Alice in Wonderland. That’s what I love about personal style; it’s completely what you make of it. Every. Single. Day. Continue Reading
