We’re raising our glass to a personal favored ItalianVogue veteran, Sir Steven Meisel. The American born famed photographer has grown to be one of today’s most successful in the fashion industry. An ever impressive protégé of Conde Nast Chief’s Anna Wintour and Franca Sozzani, editors of both US and Italian Vogue, in which Meisel has photographed every cover for the last two decades. The past twelve months of his career just go to show how fond Anna and Franca are of Meisel’s homework. This year proves no surprise, snapping us twelve memorable covers for the renowned international publication. Meisel’s talent could also be credited for propelling pretty no-named tall girls, into supreme supermodel status. We don’t mean to drop names but, do Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss, Gisele Bundchen, Agyness Deyn, and Freja Beha Erichsen sound familiar to anyone? Only a few of Meisel’s monthly subjects. Cheers to you Steven!


Playing dress up with Kate Moss for TopShop. Her feminine touch on this vintage inspired silk maxi has me all dressed up with no place to go.. 
(have always liked this video of Kate Moss' self titled topshop campaign and feet it relates to today's post. dare you not to dance.)

This dress was the first thing I looked at when walking into a basement filled with topshop treats at SSENSE last week. Maybe because I have a soft spot for silk embellished dresses, or the fact that it stuck out like a sore thumb amongst jean jackets and patent leather mini skirts. Regardless, as soon as I started to rummaging through rolling racks I knew I shouldn’t have tried her on.
But, you know how the story goes. The first glimpse triggers a double take, prolonged eye contact is made, a physical attraction is established, then turns to complimenting, which turns to touching, and the next thing you know you’ve got a (fitting) room. I apologize, I got lost in the moment and couldn’t help myself.
As I ooh’d and ahh’d over the floor length fairytale, I tried as hard as possible to ignore the two boys convincing me to bring it home. They alllllllmost had me swiping my card away, with a surprising price point of $260 Canadian, until reality hit. Seriously, where the honk am I ever going to wear this? My weekly agenda includes activities revolving around a retail sales floor, various downtown coffee shops, and the occasional dive bar come weekend. (Not to mention how suave I’d look rolling my cart down the frozen food aisle in this number.) As much as I wish I had Gossip Girl garden parties to attend, unfortunately I just don't. Turns out this piece is made for someone with a far fancier itinerary than my own. Thanks for the memories Moss! photocreds: ftape, emma, SSENSE boys

As promised, above are some additional photos from last weeks visit to our first glimpse of the TopShop collection at SSENSE Montreal. The highly anticipated collection was found tucked into the cozy basement of the retailer’s two storied luxy loft space. The basement holds two walls showcasing party dresses, miniskirts, vests, cardigans, and silk blazers, as well as one wall dedicated to the brand’s male counterpart, TOPMAN. A smaller assortment was selected to test the waters in Old Montreal and will expand upon success. For Montrealer's who cant quite quit the TopShop habbit, or find the time and money to hit SOHO once a month, this will act as the cities UK fashion fix. Check back tomorrow, to see us playing dress up with our favorite piece from the TopShop collection. photocreds: emma

Jessica Stam takes her shot at photography channeling yet another famed blonde, Faye Dunaway for January's China Vogue. Our fellow Canadian bombshell suited up in Stella McCartney, Gucci, and Marc Jacobs as Ellen von Unwerth lensed her attempt at creativity. Anyone else find it hard to believe that Stam was raised on a pig farm, alongside six brothers, and "acidentally" discovered in a Tim Horton's bathroom on her way home from Canada's Wonderland? Small town Ontario is not your average point of departure into a lavish lifestyle of runways and fashion week fame. Wham bam Ms.Stam!
