Rachel WONG Flannels are HERE!! (exclusively at Vogue's Favourite Things Pop Up Shop!)


Hi everyone! I'm super excited to announce the launch of my mini flannel line, under my name "Rachel Wong"! They're vintage flannels (so they're all one of a kind!) with cute sayings on them! Ever since my first designing venture a couple years ago, I've been wanting to design wearable, casual pieces for the everyday gal. 

We had a fun small photoshoot featuring the flannels. I love styling them with plain white tees, beanies and jeans for fall and winter. They're oversized, vintage, and wash easy! I love throwing large flannels around my waist for a bit more coverage. 


"Here Comes Trouble" and "Need More Sleep" Vintage Flannels, $38.00 each
Models: Julie Coles & Meghan Wood 

They'll be launched and sold at the Vogue Charity Fashion Show's "Favourite Things" Pop-up Shop on November 27 and 28 from 10am - 6pm! I have very limited stock so come by before they sell out! 



Love Always, Rachel

Little Black Dress X American Apparel!



If you know me, I wear ALOT of black. "All black everything" is probably my life motto when it comes to clothing. Dressing up is no different! Last weekend, I had the awesome (but stressful) chance to go to Sci Formal with my boyfriend and his graduating class. I opted for black, of course.



With WaterAid's Little Black Dress event this weekend (Friday, November 14 at Stages Night club) in Kingston, American Apparel is the go-to place to get your LBD, they have tons of form fitting and flouncy dresses last minute. November 13 and 14 you can purchase your LBD tickets and get 15% off of your lil' black dress at AA on Princess Street (Kingston Exclusive)! Take a look at a few of my faves from yours truly:



When it comes to the classic LBD, I try to find ones that are both flattering and different than your typical strappy-and-short number. I love experimenting with both rounded and high necklines, or even playing around with textures like velvet.


Check out AA for your perfect LBD November 13 and 14! 

Love Always, Rachel

The Cutest iPhone & Desktop Backgrounds! (Design Love Fest's "dress your tech" !)


Hi everyone! I figured I might as well share this because I'm actually in love with every single background download this blogger has made. I was on Pinterest trying to find a cute background for my desktop, and I stumbled upon DesignLoveFest. Her stuff is SO cute and she has tons of free downloads on her site, especially under the section "Dress Your Tech!". Her site is my go-to  to snazz up all my devices, and I wanted to spread the love. 

DesignLoveFest.com has both iPhone and Desktop backgrounds, she posts quite regularly so I'm always checking back and saving them.  I even think a few would look amazing as prints, if you go to staples and print them on nice paper and frame them, they'd be a great addition to a gallery wall. 


I've been changing my desktop screen on the reg because I really can't make up my mind. Currently, my desktop background is the pretty flower one that says "stay wild". Love!

Outfits for Day 4 & 5 of WMCFW (Toronto Fashion Week) + Get Ready With Me!



Hi everyone! I had the pleasure to attend World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto this year as part of the Media Industry, where I was able to blog all about the shows! This was my first time attending, and it was nothing like I've done before! Here are a few of the outfits I wore for the days that I attended (I went to days 4 & 5)! 

It's funny that I pushed the notion of "comfort" so much during fashion week, I was nervous to wear heels because I would be running around all day, plus I have a 40 minute bus commute downtown, where I would never last in heels. Instead, I opted for stylish riding boots and my trusty Nikes. I also wore a ton of black (as per usual, haha). I played around with textures (like fur & leather), and that's how I added some interest to my outfits. I also had to bring out my black floppy hat, it honestly just makes me feel fancy (hehe).

 DAY 4


DETAILS:
Jacket - Hugo Boss
Turtle Neck - Club Monaco
Skirt - Forever 21
Runners - Nike
Bag - Zadig and Voltaire 

DAY 5 


DETAILS:
Jacket- Mendocino
Shirt - My brothers! (haha)
Leather Leggings - Aritzia
Riding Boots - Hugo Boss
Hat - H&M
Purse - Michael Kors Selma Bag 

I will definitely be doing a post on the recap of the shows, plus some of the other video footage that I vlogged (so keep a lookout for that!)! Check out my video of how I got ready for fashion week! (Hair, makeup & outfit!) 

CHECK IT OUT: 



Keep a lookout for more of my posts for WMCFW! There is a ton more to come! 

Love Always, Rachel

Easy Hair Curling Tutorial! (Using a curling wand!)


Hi everyone! Alot of people have requested for me to do an easy curling tutorial, so I decided to make a tutorial on how I curl my hair for everyday wear! I love curling my hair, and like to use the curling iron "wand style" (aka without using a clamp). You can check out my vid below! 


Love Always, Rachel 

PS. I'm currently attending World Master Card Fashion Week (aka Toronto Fashion Week!), and have a media pass! I'll definitely be blogging about it in the next few days! Been vlogging non-stop! Here's a sneakpeek!

OOTD: Campus Fall Looks with the Sister!


Hi everyone! I'm back with another outfit post today. About a week ago, Syd & I were on campus for a small project, and because I'm so excited about this new camera I have, we decided to do a bit of street style. Since it's midterm season, it's been getting harder to style my outfits differently each day, and I find myself wearing the same thing all the time. Although I do love fashion, I unapologetically wear leggings as pants all the time (It's comfy - I'm a college student leave me alone!). However, when I'm feeling fancy, I like to bring out this leather Wilfred FREE pair I have from Aritzia. They're amazing quality and are much more "PANTS" like so I feel a lot more put together. I like to pair them with an oversized sweater and a jacket. I recently also bought this jacket from Forever 21, after seeing Kim & North (don't judge me) sport them. 


DETAILS: 

Bomber Jacket - Forever 21
Sweater - H&M
Leather Leggings - Aritzia
Sneakers - All Saints 


Also, how AMAZING are these sneakers from All Saints? They remind me of Alexander Wang. I borrowed them from my sister for the day. 

SYDS LOOK:


DETAILS:
Jacket - Forever 21
Black Top - Forever 21
Jeans - Hollister Co. 
Flannel - Urban Outfitters 
Sneakers - Converse 
Scarf - Forever 21

Sydney & I love to layer, which she did much better than me today. I love the mix of colours and textures, it's nice to have a look that's not so monochromatic. 

Love Always, Rachel
