Party Bus: The Hottest Trend in Toronto

I live for the nights that I won’t remember and the people that I won’t forget

                                                                                                            –  Drake 

Looking for the ultimate transportation that merges seamlessly with your party idea? Then look no further than a party bus Toronto. Party buses are specially designed luxury vehicles with plush interiors and plenty of entertainment features that can comfortably carry up to 30 or 40 people on board. Party buses have become a new trend in transportation simply due to the convenience of riding in numbers and the fact that you can start off your party right on the bus.

You can hire a party bus for special events and ceremonies such as concerts, wedding receptions, birthdays, anniversaries and prom among others. The party bus experience makes the whole ride to and from the event so much more fun. Some people will even hire a party bus and have the chauffeur drive around the city to particular joints but most of the partying will be on board anyway.

In order to keep things interesting and guests entertained, party buses have quite a number of luxury amenities such as:

  • Sound and lighting is a must have in party buses. A great sound system will keep the fun tunes blaring all through. You can even carry your own music collection and hook it up to the AUX connection. Some buses even have a DJ booth. Led lighting helps to create and keep the party atmosphere within the bus.
  • Plush interiors and dance floors are also a common feature in party buses. Leather seats and carpeted floors with plenty of legroom for a dance floor are definitely something to look forward to in a party bus.
  • You can also get to enjoy your favorite drink in a party bus with mini coolers/freezers to keep the drinks chilled. Not all party buses however allow drinking on board and you will need to ask about this when renting the vehicle. For those that do, some will even allow you to bring your own drinks.
  • If you are willing to go all out, you can get a licensed party bus with a host. The host is a great idea as they will keep the bus lively, serve up the drinks and keep the music going.
  • The best part about luxury party buses is the onboard toilet. With all that partying, you do not need to make a stop every time someone needs to use the toilet. You can keep the ride going for as long as you need.

With the wide variety of transportation options in the market today, it is advisable to take your time finding out what the limo company has to offer and whether this fits within your desired budget. Travelling in a group makes the cost of the service a lot more affordable as you can split it among 30 or 40 people. Party buses are arguably the most affordable luxury transportation available today if you keep that in mind making it a very popular trend in Toronto.

 

 

Life too short to wear boring jewellery

Accessories are the exclamation point of a woman
                                                                                    – Michael Kors

I am a huge fan of minimalism but I am kinda addicted to jewellery. The more edgy the better.  Studs, skull, blades, gothic heart, synth  are few of my favorites little wonders.

I came across the wonderful map necklaces from Olive Yew  and instantly fell in love with them. Life is indeed to short to wear boring jewellery. I love personalized jewellery they are perfect for developing signature style.

Adding statement jewellery to a simple outfits upgrades the look in an instant. Your basic wardrobe won’t look so basic when paired with these accessories. 

As a firm believer in 5 piece french wardrobe philosophy, I rarely indulge in my tinny jewellery addiction. But when I do, I go for interesting pieces that are versatile yet unique on their own.

The best thing about it is lasts forever, and for me jewellery are mementos, they keep memories alive. Jewellery shopping is painless and so much fun.

Why you need to get your clothes tailored

As a fashion student, I have a little more insight in the production of clothes.Tailored clothes fit much better than ready to wear clothes as rule of thumb. Let us discus the pros of getting your clothes tailored. 

#Tailored clothes are timeless and classic. They bring out the best in you accentuating  your asset.They make the best impression be it interview or social gathering. Through out the ages seamstress have been working behind the scenes, creating masterpieces.    

   

#Power dressing. Nothing beats a tailored suit. 

#Perfect fit. Mass produced clothes are made in standardized sizes that might not fit you properly. This is because our bodies are different and a shirt that might fit you shoulders may be too wide around the waist.On the other hand standardize sizes might fit you perfectly as it does for few people. They can straight way order clothes online and wear them the next day. While most of us had to tailor almost each garment or else compromise with the fit. 

 

#Girlboss need to have their clothes tailored. They need to make a lasting impression, and inspire the mass. 

#Comfort. Get comfortable in you own clothes that fits you like a dream. Banish extra fabric in unusual places, and highlight you best asset. 

#Your tailor is your personal designer, who makes one of a kind garment that makes its way into you wardrobe.

#Unique piece. Aren’t you tiered of seeing the exact similar piece from Zara or H&M that everyone seem to own. A tailored garment can be simple, but have knock off detailing that is not found on ready – to – wear garments.

 

#Get creative. Get involved in the process of tailoring . Help the designer to create a piece you will love. Fabrics, lining, colors, details … 

#Signature Style. It is easy to put you signature on a tailored piece than a regular ready-to wear garment. I seem to fall in love with a piece and stick to it for a really long time. I have shirt which are 5 years old and need to be trashed because I have worn them out.  I love shirt and the only way to get them right is to get them tailored.

#The cost factor. It might be expensive to get your clothes tailored but it is a worthy investment. Skilled seamstress will charge for their expertise but you will get a timeless and unique piece. My 5 piece french wardrobe can definitely afford tailored pieces.

Black is forever

My love for the color black is unsurpassed by any other colour. It is my go to colour. When in doubt go Black. Back to Black .People around me are forever asking me to wear other colors , anything other than black.

The importance of the colour black when it comes to fashion and my wardrobe is immense. 

 

You can’t go wrong with The Little Black Dress has been a wardrobe staple and rightfully so. They are versatile and flattering on almost everyone. Easy to accessories with statement neck pieces and colorful scarves.The uniform project involved wearing a LBD for 365 day consecutively but creatively while not repeating the same outfit. Black is one of the best colour for the monochrome look followed closely by white and blue.

Black and white  is another classic combination that is always trendy. The combination to these two neutral colour is striking and suitable for every occasion starting from formal to casual.  

 

Apart from that black looks good with a wide range of colors . From pastels to fluorescent and several bright tones can be easily balanced with the colour black. Needless to say   pencil skirt, blazer, jeans, shirt, t-shirt, tank and a pair of semi-formal pants all in the colour black is my wardrobe staple. 

Well , when it comes to accessories the belt, the bag and the shoe, black defiantly dominates the field. All these are must for formal wardrobe.

 

Leather jackets and blazers looks sharp and classy all the time and more so in the colour black. Edgy looks are best when done in black so does studs and chains. 

Black colour gives the best slimming effect too. 

For some people black is boring but for me black brings out the best in every colour and outfit. What is your go to colour?

Planing minimalist looks have never been Easire

 
  
Planing to give minimalism a try. You need to follow this simple rule to rock the minimalist look.
 To balance the look you will need a combination of 3 basic clothing piece and +1 trendy/ statement  accessory. For the 3 main pieces : Choose a top , a bottom , and a cover up, make sure they work well with each other and don’t clash. The three pieces need to balance each other and let the statement piece stand out.

For the +1  choose from a scarf ,  a statement necklace ,earring , cuffs or a simple choker.I have officially fallen in love with chokers .

 kendall jenner is rocking the minimalist look composed of 3 clothing pieces + 1 statement accessory ( chokers )

If you are not fond of accessories you can cut off the +1 statement accessory and let one of the basic 3 pieces standout. Shoes and bags or even statement sunglasses will do the trick.

Rock the Choker Trend

 

The trend is highly popular right now, with celebs like Taylor swift and Kendall Jenner sporting the choker to accentuate some of their signature looks.  Popularly considered to be revival of the 90s fashion trend the choker has been conceived long ago.

The origin of the popular choker dates back to thousands of years back to the Sumerian Empire in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. In those days the choker necklaces were considered protective ornaments. They were generally made of gold or lapis and vested with power.

Choker gained popularity during renaissance as a stylish accessory and were coveted among the royals in the late 19th century .During the late 19th century women in part of Germany and Austria used choker to mask lumps on the neck cause by goitre. While in few parts of the world, simple ribbon choker were symbolic of prostitution. The unprecedented notion changed when the choker graced the necks of ballerinas.

It is a trend that has survived the fall of the ancient empires and the evolutionary era of renaissance and surfaced time and again through the 20th century. The choker have evolved from a protective necklaces to stylish pieces, to being used to mask flaws ,  to being the symbol of prostitution in some parts of the world to being called “dog collars” during the 1920s  and 30s.

During 1920s and 30s choker were made of velvet ribbon and pearls with a central decal.

The 1970s rise of hippies’ culture saw the revival of the choker once again. Pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera advocated the choker trend through the 90s. This time the choker evolved in to the infamous plastic tattoo choker and simple ribbon chokers.

Today the choker is available is several forms, from simple ribbons to leather neckties to jewel encrusted collars.Big players likes Givenchy and Chloe have been featuring them on the runway and top jewellery designers are releasing new designs frequently.

Suffice to say the choker is a statement piece which will never go unnoticed. The choker draws attention to the neck and quite boldly so. It is undeniable bold and chic.

Rocks the trends like bloggers do.

1 Layer it with other necklaces – Take layering to the next level.

2 Wear it solo – Give the choker the glory it deserves.

3 Tie it like blogger do . 

4 Wear it with a edge. 

I am loving this trend …

Emma Watson for Net-a-Porter The Edit Issue

Emma Watson poses for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit . The 23 year old star poses in five gorgeous dresses made by Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Erdem and Roland Mouret looking  absolutely amazing in these chic alternatives.
 

Since her visit to a factory in Bangladesh  she has been  questioning the current state of affairs: “I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a speciality and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?”

I live in India , Bangladesh’s neighboring country where there are factories with similar working condition as in Bangladesh. Some indian retailer’s even export from bangladesh because of their high productivity.

“It’s hard to talk about this stuff without sounding preachy.”

“I’ve always had this huge problem. I would love to wear garments that are ethically sourced, but there aren’t enough options for me to be able to do that realistically.”

She looks absolutely gorgeous and she know how labor intensive dress making in.
