ODD MAGAZINE


It's Odd and it has finally arrived! For the past few months I have been completely immersed in my own little Odd world. I am taking a fashion magazine minor at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and along with 3 other editors and a whole team of 26 students making up the Odd company, we have created a magazine that will be sold internationally.

Odd aims to connect with extraordinary personalities in the creative industry. Based on the six degrees of separation theory, we explore six connections between seven peoples lives and styles. These seven key people are the core for a magazine about fashion, photography and illustration inspired by personal stories about creative life. It’s just a little bit Odd.Odd represents imperfection. It is about androgony and curvy figures, it combines both the masculin and feminine. It celebrates strange subtle details that make you look twice. It is inspired by style icons of the past like Jean Michelle Basquiat, Katherine Hepburn, Bob Dylan, Brigitte Bardot and Peter Beard. Odd loves 50’s pompadors, 60’s eyelashes, 70’s long flowing locks, 80’s lipstick and 90’s bleached hair. Odd is about being yourself and expressing your unique personality through the clothes you wear. Odd is about talent from the future and icons from the past.

Odd hits stores on July first. Keep your pretty little eyes peeled for my baby!

Three Days in Paris

Sunday night at 4:30a.m lying in bed in Amsterdam beside my best friends, I decided that I needed to go to Paris. There was no way around this, I needed to catch the last few days of Paris fashion week. 13 hours later I was on a train on my way. It was a whirlwind but it was completely worth it. Here are some of my favourite shots from my three days in Paris.

Tales of a Fashion Week Virgin



{My Streetstyle Photos from Milan Fashion Week}


My Fall/Winter 2010 Milan Fashion Week was all about:
-Acting like a stalker snapping pics of people on the street
-Blisters from towering suede wedges
-Cotton candy hair from Italian spring rain
-getting lost and chasing down cabs
-Making new friends with bloggers
-Falling in love with Yvan of the Facehunter’s great hair and even greater French accent
-realizing the benefits of lip liner over lipstick after a day of running around Milan
-experiencing my first ever fashion show - Dsquared, and feeling honored to be Canadian
-learning the importance of a good shoeshine when looking down at my boots compared to the slightly pointed leather shoes of the Italian man sitting beside me at Ferretti
-Drinking warm bourbon and Coke light with Illustrator Blue Logan at his gallery exhibit
-Drinking cold vodka and soda with Illustrator Blue Logan at his Punks wear Prada after party
-Looking for lost cell phones and misplaced trench coats
-Almost peeing my heart print tights at the sight of my own face on the homepage of style.com
-Lots of facebook notifications about people seeing my face on the homepage of style.com
-obsessing over owning a silk cape and a military suit after seeing Etro
-exploring the vintage markets along the canal
-feeling inspired
-feeling tired
-spotting Anna Wintour and feeling my dreams become realized
-driving home to Amsterdam thinking the entire time about how to get myself to Paris next week!

As a total fashion week outcast wearing outfits consisting mostly of pieces from H&M and Zara, I was surprised that some people actually seemed to like what I wore! Even though Vogue UK made up that I was wearing an Hermes bag. I wish... More like falling apart Club Monaco purse!
