Fatshion Friday: Meet the Addisons

If you're a Toronto socialite, you just miiiight be aware that there's a new bar on the block and that it is quite the game-changer. The Addisons Residence on 456 Wellington St in the Entertainment District. Now, I'm not going to discuss the logistics about the bar itself, how it did in its opening weeks or anything of that nature. Because frankly, I'm not well-informed or qualified to do so.

I mostly just want to talk about the illusion that the space creates. It's like a 1970s basement hideaway in the best possible way. Sherry glasses, old school games and art deco?! Let me slide on my bellbottoms and sign me up! I just want to revel in how it feels like a fantasy, or a dream to me. Maybe for you as well? Has no one seriously wanted to travel back in time before and see things from a different perspective? Anyway! I just *looove* the retro vibe of the bar. I often day dream about renting out the whole place to have that killer high school party that I never had!

The Addisons Residence was kind of my inspiration for this particular blog shoot. I took these photos outside my mom's place when she moved houses in the suburbs. I visit sporadically, but I don't take pictures often, because I just don't love the selection of backdrops that are accessible. However, taking a break from the city in the suburbs reminded me of some of the pictures used to promote The Addisons Residence and I thought I would try again!

With Fall rapidly approaching (it's not for a couple weeks guys, even though it is September!), the weather and the fashions are sure to change. Fall is my favourite time of year because it brings sweater weather, good hair days, Thanksgiving and my birthday! It also means, time for new fashion. Two big trends of the fall are cobalt and checkered print-- and below you can see how easy it is to rock them both at the same time. The blue checkers that I'm rocking kiiiinda give off a 70s vibe as well, but then I unexpectedly paired my top with something super modern below in what I like to call a decade mashup.

Recently, something has been drawing me closer to a "sporty" style of fashion. I bought these Nike sneaks and I am absolutely in *looove* with them. As weird as it sounds, I've coveted a pair of plain black low runners with a white sole. I didn't necessarily know what style I wanted, but I felt that I would just know when I found them-- and that I did! I found the Lightweight Kaishi Sneaker at DSW.

When I shot this outfit with and without the hooded vest, I felt almost like I was playing the role of two different characters. Opposites, but twin sisters to be exact (I'm an only child, ha!). This shoot was particularly fun, because my mom was also watching in the background and snapping some fun pics of me at the time. It was a cute family affair. Kind of like a modern family photoshoot. A twist on the classic that the Addison's would have lining their walls!
