Happy Holidays Boys,
You really didn't think I was going to forget all about Christmas, now did you?
Well it's better late than never and over here at Double Tee's, we do Christmas a little different. Being Jewish and all, (the most non-conventional of them, I must add.), I was always given the choice to celebrate if I wanted. But c'mon, if you are going to compare a joyful old man who leaves presents under a tree to some dreidels. Prepare to loose quickly. I have always loved the idea of Christmas... decorating, giving gifts, seeing the genuine smiles of your loved ones. It's really something beautiful.
As I grew older, being an only child, I always wished I had a big family to come together with.. still not complaining about the attention I got from my mom..... interesting family dynamics was just something I had the pleasure of being born into.
This time of year I would normally be in Florida, where most of my family is. Although I didn't have the ability to make it there this year, I couldn't be more happy to spend it with my mom or best friend, (which ever you'd like to call it), eating some nice ass Chinese food. God, this could be a Seinfeld episode....
Double Tee's would love to know what our readers are up too for the holidays and more importantly what are you wearing???
OK OK, now that I have bored you all with my mushy Christmas post, can we talk clothes?
I teamed up with Lamania on this holiday outfit.. the minute I walked into work one day I snatched up this Eiffel Tower sweater as soon as I could get my hands on it. The detailed beading, first of all had my jaw on the ground, but secondly, I go nuts for a little quilted Chanel look.
I paired it with these great trousers, the radiating blue that comes off of them can brighten up any day. Hoping to bring some life back into the streets of Toronto, it was really the accessories that made this outfit. Other than almost freezing without them, I couldn't help but fall in love with the warm, cozy feel that came with these pieces. Nothing adds more of a 'euro-chic' feel like a little fur and glitter.

If you fell in love with these pieces as much as I did get your butts over to Lamania before they sell out. While receiving new accessories weekly, don't miss their Christmas Paris Collection.

Not having everything allows one to set standards on what their future holidays will look like.
Wishing you a very safe and happy holidays in which ever way you decide to spend them.
From your family at Double Tee's
November 18th I had the pleasure of joining Lamania at the Wrap Yourself In Style Event hosted by one and only, Patrice McDonough. This pre holiday event featured make-up by motives and holiday pieces from Poor Little Rich Girl and Lamania.
Filled with wine tastings and Neopolitian Pizza, the Sip wine bar was definitely the place to set a holiday mood. I had the honour of show casing this season's collection for Lamania. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by warm staff and bubbly Wendy Huang. Being a very talented make-up artist aside from her passion in event planning, I had the chance to have her do my make-up in this seasons, Motives Collection.
I would like to say a big thank you to Lamania for having me show case this seasons collection which you can find at their boutique on yonge and eglinton. The Wrap Yourself in Style event was definitely a hit and I am looking forward for more collaboration with all those networking.
Getting in the mood for the holidays,
from Double Tee’s
I had the honour of show casing two of Lamania’s finest pieces for the night. Having my make up done in a smokey eye, I started off in a mid length floral dress perfect for any occasion. I have never been the girl who likes to rock the skin tight pieces just to flaunt what I got (not that I have much to begin with anyway…) I really enjoyed the length as it gave me the ability to be mobile and warm as cold months roll in. My favourite part of the dress would definitely be the dipped back as it gives it that slight sex appeal while still remaining classy.
The next outfit I wore definitely gave me more of a new years eve feel, this was the perfect combination of sexy and sophisticated. The slimming black and gold mid length is a head turner for any of your holiday events. The strip of mesh running down a single side and arm, creates a slimming affect while showing the perfect amount of skin. This dress impeccable if your all for comfort and a little bit of sparkle.
Halloween is just around the corner and I'm sure just like everyone else you are still running around finding last minute pieces to complete your look. As Halloween is one of my personal favourite holidays, DOUBLE TEE'S was more than excited to find a way to combine fashion and costumes while still being affordable.
I didn't want to go along with the generic, 'either I'm gonna be a cat or a slutty cat' costume, so when I came by TIM BURTON'S MAGICAL FASHION, all I had envisioned of Halloween, was right before my eyes.
GO CHECK OUT TIM BURTON'S MAGICAL FASHION FOR LAST MINUTE HALLOWEEN INSPIRATION.
If you haven't already looked at TIM burtons creation of combining ART FASHION AND HORROR, do yourself a favour and go..... then, can someone tell me where all the cool costumes and candy WENT? I don't know whose idea it was for girls to strut around half naked, in 10 degree weather like they've got it or something. Don't get me wrong, we have all been subjected to the fun of looking hot and being able to dress as someone you're not. Although if you are going to be risky, please dear god BE UNIQUE about it...
This year, Double Tee's hopes to tone down the pressure a bit for us ladies and spark your creative side. Take a look at our recreation of Alice & Wonderland to see how you can use everyday pieces while still looking fabulous for Halloween.
