back in black / shoecult & blk dnm

Well the first week of Fall classes are done and there are two things I already know. First, my biceps are gonna be freakin' ripped by the end of the semester...shout out to my twenty pound managerial accounting textbook. Second, I'll be living in my Blk Dnm sweatshirt and Shoecult sandals. This sweatshirt is perfect...all goth black and boy baggy. Since it hits at about hip length on me, I wore it over a basic grey tank to add a bit of length and break up the black on black on black theme *Excuse my inner goth girl.* Another one of my old favorites, these rag & bone moto zip skinnies, look rad slightly unzipped at the ankle to show off the cool ankle strap sandals. I apologize in advance as this outfit is bound to become a repeat offender.

favorite

Although I've never really been a "perfume girl," I am a sucker for beautiful packaging. When that pretty bottle also happens to contain a clean, light scent...well I just can't resist. Enter Voluspa "Crisp Champagne." But wait..."Champagne" scent?! I know what you're thinking. Why in the hell would I want to smell like I just left Lavo brunch? Trust. This body mist is fresh, light and smells like a delicious sip of Rose NOT like you bathed in it. You're welcome.

The perfect anti-dress and hello Halloween costume contest grand prize winner. Or maybe this amazeballs blazer?! Perfect worn with dark destroyed baggies or buttoned up over black tights. Ooooo no...how about a fur trimmed vintage Levi's jacket?!?! OR MAYBE...well, you get the point. Check out everything ref babe on the site. #cantstopwontstop

cult thang / shoecult by nasty gal

You already know I have major love for Nasty Gal (remember this post?) The online retailer puts out some of the raddest lookbooks, designs their own bad ass clothing line, have the most epic collaborations (ummm have you seen the new reformation for nasty gal?!) and now...their own shoe line! Nasty Gal is on FIAH and you can like, totally get in on the action because Shoe Cult by Nasty Gal launched today! Who better to design a line of shoes for bad ass chickies than the nasty babes themselves?? I'm completely in love with the amazeballs pair of studded sandals they sent me. Black, studded, and all sexy and strappy with a little baby heel. Paired with low slung Zara denim shorties, Forever 21 denim shirt and my trusty H&M panama hat. These sandals add the perfect edge to my canadian tux uniform. Oh and did I mention the entire line is less than two hundred bucks?! Excuse me while I order every pair.

feather hearts feature / bad news babes

My fun little interview & "Babe Sessions" feature is now up on Feather Hearts...check it out here!



FH: Where are you from?
Born in Toronto and now I'm finishing up school in Florida and am in LA as much as possible.

FH: You have a blog, please share?
Fire on the Head! I started it as sort of a wish list and have since added personal style, inspiration and little editorials I style and photograph. It's developing along with my own style and I'm very excited for the future.

FH: What do you do when you're not in front of the camera?
I like to pretend I'm a photographer and love to style and shoot my little sister, Adria. I also love nerding out and watching the history channel.

FH: Describe your style?
I like to keep it pretty simple and a little boyish. I love denim, tees, leather, minimal accesories and neutral colors. I live in vans but sometimes a stiletto just pulls a pair of baggie jeans and tee together.

FH: Coffee or Tea?
Couldn't live without my Starbucks venti iced americano (with sugarfree vanilla and a splash of soy.)

FH: Anyone you're crushin' on at the moment?
Major girl crushin on photog babe Zoey Grossman, blogger Mija at Creators of Desire and the super inspiring Amanda Shadforth of Oracle Fox.

FH: Right or left side of the bed?
Right side fo show.

FH: If you had to do a Flash Mob what would it be and where?
Uhhh..what's a flash mob? Hahah kidding. Hmm probably some kind of crazy dance in the middle of Times Square wearing 80's workout gear. Something dorky and super fun.

FH: Any last words?
Yolo? Ha I don't know...I guess it's just important to remember that the universe tends to make things right. If you are really passionate about something, you'll find a way to make it work.

hit & run

In case you haven't caught on, I'm really into white tees. It just so happens that my little sister is not only a super babe (reference)...she handles a pen like nobodies business. She gifted me a tee printed with one of her amazing illustrations. Paired with my favorite Koral baggies and a pair of sweet strappy heels from forever 21 (killer heels from forever, what?!) makes for the perfect easy, end of summer look.
