Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of heading out to a cottage up north for the weekend, and forgot all the rules of fashion. My weekend had a rotation of three outfits: bikini, t-shirt (with holes in it) and denim shorts, and a hoodie with sweatpants. And really, could you blame me? If I wasn’t paddle-boarding or swimming across the lake, then I was roasting marshmallows by the fire or bathing myself in anti-mosquito spray. There really wasn’t space for nice clothes at that point.
And here we are, on Canada Day, and sadly, I’m stuck in the city (or what most consider the suburbs), but managed to have the weekend off work anyway.

And quite frankly, if I plan to keep writing about fashion on The Lifestyle Bistro, it would be embarrassing not to know the designers who work a mere 20-minute drive away (I’m a suburban girl).

Hoarding might as well be my full-time job, because I am just so damn good at it. Clothes, boxes, paper shopping bags (you know, the pretty ones), journals, old paperwork, children’s jewellery… I admit it, I have too much stuff that I don’t even use, and in most cases, I don’t even know it exists anymore. That’s why I’ve decided that this year, I will declutter once and for all. Continue reading give me your shoes!
