Rack to Rack with Rachel Matthews

Photo By: Krist Papas

Your friends and family may be quick to tell you they like your new shoes or your outfit choice for the evening even if they aren’t totally serious, but Rachel Matthews won’t lie to you. If you shouldn’t be wearing that skirt length, blouse print or dress sleeve she’ll be the first to tell you politely, but then she’ll be sure to follow up with a long list of alternatives that will work amazing for your body type and make you feel glamorous while still staying under budget.

I recently attended one of the Rack to Rack Funshops hosted by the Toronto-based fashion stylist and she shared with me some fundamental tips everyone can keep in mind while revamping their closet for the fall. Check them out on Style Nine to Five.

He Who Seeks Beauty Will Find it

A little while ago I watched the most inspiring film. It was a documentary about Bill Cunningham, the New York Times fashion photographer. You may not recall his name or his face, but if you’ve ever read a Sunday edition of the NY Times chances are you’ve seen his images of stylish New Yorkers out on the street and at exclusive galas and soirees. Bill has photographed some of the most notable characters in the fashion world and has had the pleasure of attending countless Fashion Week shows around the world. The movie is filled with cameos by admiring peers such as Anna Wintour who praise his skill and charisma. Learning about this charming man really emphasized that finding something you are truly passionate about and making it your life’s work is the only job worth having. I guarantee you will leave the theatre with a huge smile and enough inspiration to get out there and find your calling.

Find out a little bit more about the movie on my post for Style Nine to Five, and watch the trailer. You can catch the film in Toronto at Varisty Cinemas.
