Little while since I’ve done a giveaway but I’ve got one now so hey, YAY. Two tickets to this weekend’s Artist Project with “your name” on them. It’s easy to win, details below or see THIS photo on IG. There’s heaps of art for sale if you’re looking to make your place look like an adult lives there.

The other day I hosted a party at the Toronto WILDFOX shop w/ HIGH STREET fashion. We had champagne, a candy bar, onsite fashion illustrations, and a great DJ. The night was celebrating the launch of the WILDFOX Fairytale collection 2016.
I was a huge fan of the brand years ago and it’s nice to see the latest is still totally up my alley. A nice mix of mermaid/fairytale fun with a side of rock n’ roll.
Here’s some of my fav photos from the night. All pix by Pedro Marques unless otherwise noted. See more at #wildfoxinthe6ix on Instagram or Twitter.
Thanks everyone who came by! The new collection is now in store and online. I’ve got my eye on a few summer items. Can’t wait for cottage season!
I was recently interviewed for thenoteworthys.co, a Canadian site you’ll find a carefully curated collection of unique, high-quality, often hand-made items by emerging designers. They love to take you behind the scenes (BTS) to learn about inspiration and workmanship behind designers they feature. They also like to feature people like ME.
Being ‘Noteworthy’ means following your passion in creating a life you love living. Now THAT is something I am totally down with! I can agree, being Noteworthy “ means taking a leap to of faith to follow your dreams.“
They asked, what does Noteworthy mean to me? Read the full interview here and see my top 5 picks from the store below.
Top 5 Noteworthy Must-Haves
1) Crystal Crop Top. Looking good Misty Fox!
2) Leather Envelope Clutch (Large). Perfect for a digital girl on the go!
3) Robin Waxed Tan Jacket. Love this + matching shirt = A+
4) Polka Dot French Bowtie. I need this!
5) Karoo Oxford Dress. Adorable!
I am seriously loving this weather! I went for a bike ride this morning to get a coffee. I’ve been a bit slack on blog posts this week as I’m seriously prepping for a TEDx talk this weekend. I’ve been giving myself a little goals of doing some work and then rewarding myself with a coffee or with lunch. I’ve got a lot to get accomplished this week! Next week I’m shooting a holiday project with a major design company and I’m really excited about it. I set a goal to do more video so I’m pretty stoked about all the collabs I’ve got coming up.
In other news, I recently discovered how great dictation is on my MacBook, I can literally talk and it types everything I’m saying. I’m doing this today because I’m feeling a bit frazzled! 😛 Prepping for a speaking gig involves lots of talking to yourself. Dictation and iPhone voice memos are my saviour this week. THANKS APPLE!
Scion Canada hooked me up with a car for the week, which I am LOVING! I’ve never owned my own car and it’s so freeing to just jump in an hit the open road. Today I’m heading West with my sister to have dinner with mum.
Yesterday I went to WEST (wearables) conference at the MaRS discovery District. On this panel is one of Sean’s business partners, J.Lee Williams, talking the future of VR in film and television.
I also stopped into a preview of ALDO Spring/Summer 2016. Take a little scroll through my fav items in this little Vine. You’ll find these at stores early next year. I’ve been making more short videos so pop over to https://vine.co/CASIESTEWART to see my recent creations.
OK, time for me to get a move on. Forever being distracted by the internet! Currently watching the Prime Minister, Justing Trudeau get sworn in via Periscope.
WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!
4:32.49 – how long it too me to vote this morning. Went early to avoid the rush, was done by 9:50! It was so easy. I had to replace my licence recently so took the paper one w/ my passport & voting card.
Don’t get discouraged if there’s a crowd today, let it excite you! This is a big day for Canada and an opportunity for change in our awesome country. Dress up, take a selfie, go with a friend, go with your bae. VOTE!
Today also marks the first day of World Master Card Fashion Week in Toronto so I dressed stylish and wore Canadian. Fur vest and jacket by Rudsak Canada, collar is Ted Baker London, book bag Zara, new boots Geox, vintage glasses.
Hoping for change today! If you need to know what or where to vote visit electionscanada.ca. Polls are open till 9:30pm!
Last week I went to the media preview for Converse 2015 Holiday. I’ve been wearing these kicks my entire life. Mum reminded me the other day that I had them as a wee little kiddo. I’ve gone through heaps of pairs over the years and love how they change slightly, yet remain the same.
This year Converse released the Converse Chuck Taylor Chuck II. The new Chuck II is nearly identical to its predecessor, with advances in construction and technology, including Nike’s Lunarlon cushioning. They’re more comfortable! This neon colour is limited edition FYI.
“[The Chuck II] continues to reflect the spirit of the Chuck Taylor and what it’s meant all these years. It still has all of the most recognizable exterior attributes of the Chuck — that’s important to the consumer. We’re just addressing the new needs of the consumer while staying true to this iconic sneaker,” said David Allen, GM and VP of Converse North America.
There’s two new styles from the Holiday 2015 Collection I’m majorly crushing on. First, these rubber Chuck Taylor high tops. I can see myself wearing these all winter, summer, spring, and fall. They’re waterproof and have a sleek zipper down the back. Get on my feet you guys! 💛💛💛💛
Second is not released in Canada yet but they will be soon. I’m not supposed to say anything about the collab just yet but I found this tweet on Twitter and won’t go into detail and just leave it here… You can see why I love them!
MAJOR SWOON BABY!
Last week the girls from Fitzroy Boutique opened their latest pop-up at 12 Ossington. They’re partnered with adidas Originals and during Nuit Blanche last weekend, you could have your new kicks customized by two awesome Toronto artists, Andre Kan or Madison Van Rijn.
My shoes were customized by Madison (above) and I picked a little love note envelope similar to a tattoo on my right arm. I’ve had a few pairs of shoes customized over the years with my name so now, I’m adding adidas to my collection.

I also love the dress Julie (one of the Fitzroy babes) was wearing and I picked one up for myself. I was feeling pretty tired after going to WeDay so a little retail therapy was JUST what I needed.

The pop-up runs until the end of November. I suggest making sure there’s some room on your fav credit card because there so many really nice items in the store. If you can’t make it there IRL, check out @FitzroyBoutique on Instagram or visit shopfitzroy.com to shop online.
Thanks again for having me ladies! 😘😍
Love this campaign and all the people in the video. Not sure how long this has been out but I just rediscovered it in my drafts and watched it another 2x. You’ll like this one.
