ZAÄN Asymmetric Tunic

The ZAÄN Asymmetric Tunic was available at the brand’s pop-up shop at the National Women’s Show in Montreal, last March. Though I was already familiar with the brand – Sophie Paquette (ZAÄN designer in chief!) and I were both involved in the 2016 Montreal + Fashion Week… READ MORE…

Rocky Ridge III Skirt by Columbia

I discovered by accident the Rocky Ridge III skirt as I was shopping in an off-price department store. Lucky accident though, because this is one of Columbia Sportswear most interesting piece I have ever gotten! (Sadly, this item seems to be unavailable for the moment, but let’s hope Columbia remembers their plus-size lady clients and bring that model back!) READ MORE…

Ashlynn Chiffon Poncho by SWAK Designs

We hardly ever associate summer heat and ponchos, which are traditionally thick and warm (to be confirmed next September in Peru, haha!). But since last spring, it seems that the light version of this garment is one of the biggest trends for 2016 ! With a more relaxed cut than a traditional button shirt, yet more stylish than the polo or t-shirt, the poncho adds a little Bohemian touch to most outfits, without making it too sporty, but allowing full comfort and ease of movement. The Ashlynn Chiffon Poncho is SWAK Designs’ answer to this year’s trend. READ MORE…

Marla Tank Dress by SWAK Designs

As a backpacker, I try to remain open to as many opportunities as possible, activity-wise. And it’s not because I usually present a quite casual look that I don’t want to be ready for a special night! I often treat myself with the occasional fancy dinner/activity during my trips; often, in order to be able to do that, I need at least one appropriate outfit for the occasion! READ MORE…

Terri Chiffon Duster by SWAK Designs

Though a duster is not a “full garment”, I still think this is the kind of item that can easily prop up an outfit and add a little touch to what would otherwise be a pretty bland outfit. Meet the Terri Chiffon Duster, in all it’s sleeveless, maxi-sized, aerial glory! READ MORE…

Perfect Palazzo Pants by SWAK Designs

So I took my Perfect Palazzo Pants on the road… to the airport. (Trust me, I looked at all those people getting ready to fly away and I was truly jealous! I came this close to buy a ticket… after all, I already had my suitcase and a bunch of outfits with me, haha!) READ MORE…
