Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 27, 2012 18:49:06 September 27, 2012 18:49:06

As an alternative to your same old, same old jeans I encourage you to invest in a pair of good leather leggings/pants.  If you can spend a little more, do because I promise you, you’ll be able to bust those suckers out for years to come.  For all you big spenders out there I’ve got some of the most lux leggings coming your way. Full Article

Sasha’s FALL 2012 TREND REPORT #1: THE SWEATSHIRT

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 27, 2012 17:49:52 September 27, 2012 17:49:52

As a half Asian person seeking comfort in my clothes is in my genetics.  (Lainey: we live in pyjamas.) There’s an innate yearning for everything I wear to be ultra-soft and ultra-cozy.  Let me put it this way - instead of from day to night clothing, I look for day to goodnight.  So the fact that fashion just told me that I can throw on a flashy necklace over a sweatshirt and get away with it (!!!)…. Full Article

Tina Knowles is frantically scribbling notes on how to mutilate this collection for House Of Dereon. I do love that Balmain is sometimes so unapologetically...80s. But the cropping! There’s been a lot of cropping.  Full Article

Really like the modification of the short/skort situation here with all the various flaps though I’m curious as to what that might look like on a normal-sized person. Can never get enough of a structured shoulder.  Full Article

Carven is hard to find in Canada. I love this and hate it at the same time. Not sure how I feel about the running theme of cut-outs in this collection but Jesus, the shoes, the shoes are so good.  Full Article

Some of these crop tops are scaring me. What do you think about the positioning of those headscarves like Axl Rose styles but less formed to the head? I like it ok but I’m not sure about the practicality.  Full Article

Sasha Answers: I keep cheating on my boyfriend

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 25, 2012 18:06:21 September 25, 2012 18:06:21

Dear Sasha, I'm a horrible person, at least when it comes to relationships. I have been dating my boyfriend for a bit over four years now. About three years into the relationship, I got drunk, made out with a guy, broke up with my boyfriend and had sex with the other guy, only to find out the other guy was a total d-bag. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Are my friends leaving me out?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 25, 2012 18:01:04 September 25, 2012 18:01:04

I married a wonderful man almost a year ago, and moved from my downtown condo out to the burbs, bought a car, and became a commuter/grown-up/wife.  As such, I've found myself growing further and further away from some of my girlfriends - especially the ones the hubby is not overly fond of. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Lending my sister money

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 25, 2012 17:58:08 September 25, 2012 17:58:08

Hi Sasha,  My older sister and brother-in-law have two young kids. We all get along well. My sister and brother-in-law have combined solid, average, middle-class annual incomes - he works full-time, she works part-time. They live in a small condo in a very well-to-do neighbourhood. They had some financial difficulties a while ago, but are more stable now. Full Article

Hi Haley, I am a 23 year old male who stands 5"11 and weighs 160-165 lbs. I don't know what or if there even is a standard weight for my age/height and what that falls into, I certainly know I'm not large by any means. I do however feel "pudgy" compared to my 20 year old self who could eat what he wanted and not feel the repercussions. Full Article
