Earlier this week I announced my partnership with Woodbine Racetrack for race season. I’l be attending all major races AND getting dressed up for The Queen’s Plate on July 5th. This is us there last year. It was so much fun. I love taking a seat and along with the actual horse racing, seeing all the hats and outfits.
This year Woodbine Racetrack is hosting a contest where you can win a $1,000 gift card at the end of the season. You could really turn that prize into a big win if you’re lucky! It’s quite easy to enter, details below.
By posting your selfie at the track with the #OfftotheRaces hashtag you’ve got a chance to win a $1000 Woodbine Racetrack gift card at the end of the horse racing season. Please remember, your selfie MUST be taken in front of the racetrack!
On another note, tickets for The Queen’s Plate on July 5th are now on sale! Get yours here. Looking forward to this, need to find an outfit and HUGE hat!
Ok, this is a special post because I don’t usually post things with kids/for kids but after visiting the High Park Studio of Bathing Belle, I absolutely HAVE to share. I met Danica (the designer of Bathing Belle Swimwear) a couple weeks ago, we had a little hangout and she gave me a tour of her studio.
She ALSO measured me for a custom made bathing suit. I’ve always had a hard time finding swimwear that fits, I’m fairly petite but heavy in the breast region. To be honest, finding a bathing suit that fits properly had been more like a nightmare.
Last week I popped by the Bathing Belle studio to pick up my new, custom suit and good lord, IT FITS PERFECTLY. I know mum will be happy to read this because she was there during high school when I broke down to tears in the Bikini Village fitting room over nothing fitting right.
Danica makes a great selection of women’s swimwear in gorgeous and fun prints, available on one piece, two piece, monokini, and mastectomy. Excuse the hangers, I really should have taken those off! These are three of my favs.
One of the cutest things ever are the matching mum/dad + kids suits.
Burger and fries loving family? This one’s for you. Those are little onion rings with the burgers, ahhhh.
Little scrunchies to match as well. Cuteness overload.
Danica was recently at Dune Studios in NYC to shoot the kids suits with photographer Paul Wright. Art Directed by Ellen with Burnie, hair and makeup by Akiko Owada, kids suits look absolutely adorable.
She gifted one of these little kitten suits for Embot (Sean’s daughter) and I can’t wait to see her in it. Is it too much if I get a matching one for the cottage?
Hello, hello, what a beautiful day! Put these flowers in the 1188 office yesterday to brighten up the kitchen area. It’s so nice to be working back downtown, vs last summer when I was up in the Junction.
Wore these little adorable Lacoste oxfords and really hoped they didn’t hurt my feet come end of the day. You know how that happens every spring! The old summer shoes come out and your feet get all nasty lol.
Picked up these glasses at a garage sale last weekend. I love garage sale season! Mum and I went to one when I was home a couple weeks ago.
Time to so something different with my hair soon. Not cutting it but colour. Have had blonde for months now, I’m ready to spice it up!
*Note to future self, don’t get eyelash extensions again, your real lashes are beautiful.
This was nice to see on our way to work in the morning finally, mobile payments! Thanks John Tory! American and International friends, you will be happy to know we no longer have a crazy crack smoking mayor and our new mayor is quite swell.
Was walking down Queen Street West and caught these two guys reading the paper in perfect form. Yesterday was SO NICE, the streets were packed.
Went to a tasting at the iYellow wine cave w/ Vinho Verde wines from Portugal.
Last week I stopped by Toronto’s iconic Over The Rainbow to celebrate as they turn 40. In honour of this exciting milestone, OTR is doing a series of fashion collabs throughout the year.
The first is a limited-edition jean designed by Canadian denim darling Jason Trotzuk of FIDELITY. I had a chance to have a few laughs with Jason, who flew in from Jason flew in from LA – where the FIDELITY factory is located, just for the event.
The jeans come in a classic blue denim or white, with OTR details including rainbow striped detailing on the back pockets and inside waistband.
Over The Rainbow is THE place to go for a great pair of jeans, they’re known for honest service, knowledgeable staff, and innovative products. I’ve had some good memories there including last summer 2 summers ago when I hosted the Back to School Blogger blowout (see post here).
Enjoyed the beverage selection. Fresh cold pressed juice in a rainbow of colours!
Every month for the rest of the year, Over The Rainbow will be doing collaboration with some really rad brands including Tuck Shop Co., Naked & Famous Denim, Line Knitwear, Moose Knuckles, and more. See the full list here. I’ll make sure to keep you updated so you can pick up something from the limited collections yourself!
Woke up feeling ok, battling a sore throat but dragged myself out for some sunshine and a coffee. Still rocking that winter fur but looks like next week will bring those spring temps we’ve all been waiting for.
Listened to CBC Radio q w/ Shad this morning wearing this face mask from The Face Shop (thanks Faulhaber!). Working away in the home office looking like Hannibal Lecter hoping Sean didn’t walk in and get a fright. Update: He didn’t.
Did you watch the Bruce Jenner interview last night with the rest of the world? I thought it was a good interview and it was interesting to hear Bruce’s story and struggles he’s been facing. I’m not a regular watcher of Kardashians so I’ve not seen much about him besides the tabloid stuff.
This week I upgraded my NextIssue Canada subscription so I can get ALL the magazines including Hello Canada and US Weekly. If you wanna test it out try code ’60free’ for 2 months. Follow this link -> NextIssue 60free. They just added some more French and English titles (see here) along with new search options.
I’m anxiously watching for the Royal Baby. I’ve always had a love for the Royal Family, it stems from my mum. She named me Casie Diana Stewart after Diana, Princess of Wales. Rest in Peace Dear Diana, ILU.
Read MORE magazine via NextIssue today as well, always one of mum’s favs. Loving these jumpsuits, looking good Jessica Alba. I could wear in these things all summer.
Our film, Behind the Red Carpet is NOW ON iTunes IN CANADA. You can rent/buy it and watch me on your TV/tablet/phone screen in the comfort of your own home anywhere, anytime. Find it in iTunes by searching the title or my name.
That’s all for now! I’m gonna go soak up some sunshine. Have a great weekend and happy reading/watching/resting!
Yesterday I was featured on Canada’s leading fashion + beauty site, The Kit. Check it out here! Photos by the lovely Kayla Rocca.
Inspired by the era of punk and print, today’s Toronto street style encounter mixes and matches pieces with a retro vibe to create a modern look.
WEARING: Lucian Matis top, American Apparel dress, Rudsak moto jacket and handbag, Nasty Gal hat, Shellys London booties, YSL sunglasses, M.A.C lipstick in Lady Danger
STYLE INSPIRATION: “My mom and her best friend had really great style growing up, lots of prints, patterns, sequins, and big jewelry in the ’80s. That’s where my love of clothes comes from!”
About a week ago I attended a private dinner with some of Converse’s NY team and top ranked influencers in Toronto. We sat down at the Gladstone Hotel to learn about the latest #MadebyYou campaign from Converse and few other treats.
I recently picked up a few new pairs of Air Optix Color contacts from Toronto Eyecare. We were talking about other colours available and I mentioned I’d love to give them a try, so VOILA! These ones are Honey and make my eyes look light brown in the sun. My natural eyes are hazel so there’s a slight difference. See all the colours at airoptix.ca.
Met up with my sister for a late lunch before the Converse dinner. She’s really so lovely. Follow her on Twitter or Instagram @jeniestewart.
Love that sunshine on my face. It’s always fun to look at my eyes as a different colour. These honey ones are a subtle difference. I reckon they’d look really neat on greener eyes and interested to see what they do to blue ones.
My latest and greatest Converse from the Andy Warhol Collection. Tomato Soup wasn’t available in my size at the time but I was sent a pair of Black Bean Soup and I love them.
We were all asked to customize a pair of Converse with our name. This pair is one of a kind and made by me. They’re actually a size too big so I am going to keep them forever then one day when I’m famous I’ll sell them in an auction and donate the money to a charity close to my heart. Pretty bada$$ tho.
We each had the opportunity to have the shoes we wore to the event shot by a professional photographer. In a quick thought of inspiration, I threw on some red lipstick and gave mine a kiss. I needed something to make them more unique!
Friends who wear Converse together, stay together.
Here you can see what the Honey contacts look like in artificial/indoor lighting. Not AS bright but still a bit different than my natural eyes. Changing them is fun.
Huge thanks to Mikki and the Converse team for inviting me and the opportunity to customize my own Converse. Had a blast hanging with my blog peeps over a delicious dinner.
Check out the Converse MadeByYou campaign on your fav social network. What are your fav Cons?
This post is in partnership w/ Alcon + Air Optix Colors. This whole lil' story is part of my life and all words + opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that help keep this blog going. See my previous posts w/ Air Optix Colors below! :)
I dunno what it is about this time of year of this weather but it’s really got me down. I was feeling so meh today I could have just crawled into bed and played on my phone for 2 hours until I fell asleep.
I know it’s going to be raining heaps the next few weeks and luckily I’ve got a nice coat to keep me dry. Had this baby in my closet for months and it’s finally mild/wet enough to wear it. Thank you Stutterheim + WRG in Montreal for hookin’ a sista up! David Beckham and Jay-Z have them too. The brand was started by a Andrew Stutterheim, Swedish copywriter turned fashion designer, read about him here. Cool story bro.
I was lucky to spend the afternoon with a great friend and have some laughs while we worked away. I took her some tulips and she gave me some sunshine. She also made me a delicious lunch which is always a treat!
Tomorrow night is our second Army of Sass show. I’ve skipped out on a lot of fashion week stuff this week to train tonight and perform tomorrow. I really don’t mind. I laughed my a$$ off at rehearsal and we worked up a sweat with drills, exercises, and practise. Nothing like a great group of girls, a wicked routine, and good workout to boost you UP. BTW if you ever want to join up and come to my class, lmk. There’s a couple spots left I think!
I’ve got a post coming with a pretty rad giveaway and I was planning to post it this morning yesterday but the day got away from me and I will share it today.
If you wanna come to the show tomorrow night, get a ticket HERE or at the door. Mod Club, 9pm, show starts at 10.
Here’s some beautiful flowers in case you need a cheer up too 🙂
Hi from the NKPR office s where I’ve been on set all day for an exciting new show. I can’t say anything else about it for now but soon enough you’ll know. Today marks the start of World Mastercard Fashion Week in Toronto and it’s going to be a busy one.
Huge thanks to Jodi Urichuk for a great job on makeup today (Follow her IG at @JodiUrichuk). Over the weekend I had a reaction from my eyelash extensions so I was all puffy and red. I had them taken off yesterday and most of the swelling wend down but they were still looking kinda rough this morning.
You can’t even tell, eh?
In spirit of WMCFW, remember when I walked the runway in SS12? I was wearing a custom Peach Berserk dress and walked right onto the runway after being at SXSW. I loved it. Super rad that I was wearing Doc’s too.
Tonight I’m at a Bacardi Legacy event but will be at the tent’s tomorrow for WMCFW. Here’s to a great week! Stay tuned on my Snapchat for up to the minute stories! FOLLOW ME at CASIESTEWART.
