Have you looked out the window lately? The weather has been drastically changing every five minutes, a sure sign that the seasons are in flux on the prairies. Warm and sunny one moment, snow and fog the next, the outdoors is rapidly shifting and evolving, never staying static. I think in that way, the weather is a lot like us; constantly shifting, changing, and never staying in one place.
That’s why we post Swizz ♥s; to show you all the newest and greatest things that are changing our world right now. With no further ado, here’s our roadmap of our heads and hearts lately.
Kiesza - Hideaway
Hailing originally from our fair city of Calgary, Kiesza has been making big waves around the world, as of late. Topping the charts in North America and Europe, her catchy brand of electro dance-pop brings to mind 90s legend Cathy Dennis. Classically trained in tap, jazz and ballet dancing, Kiesza performs all of her own stunts as she shows the world choreography that is genuinely rare amongst pop tarts day and age, evoking memories of Janet Jackson or Madonna but adding a flair that shows where she's been, adding a taste of authenticity in a music sphere that seems to be ever overrun with manufactured pop stars who are renown for flashy packaging over substance.
Pussy Bow Blouses
You don't need to be Margaret Thatcher to pull off this throwback look. Instead of pairing this with the traditional pencil shirt, this is a more flamboyant look, as reimagined by fashion powerhouse Gucci. Instead, leave the tweed alone and opt for a wide-legged trouser or femme up those jeans. If you fancy yourself a fashion maven, go for the extra points and make it a trend two-for with a pleated skirt, the longer the better! Think Helena Bonham Carter in an Edwardian daydream.
Meet Baddiewinkle. She's 87, she's outrageous, and she's here to steal your man. After Helen Van Winkle lost both her husband and son, she started turning to her alter-ego Baddie Winkle for comfort. Baddie Winkle could do things that Helen Van Winkle couldn't do. She's fearless, ageless and fun. Known for her daring fashion-forward urban attire and a genuine zest for life, she's been challenging people's perception of what's age appropriate and just what an octogenarian can do. With her Instagram garnering such famous fans as Rhianna, Nicole Ritchie and Mylie Cyrus, Baddiewinkle has been catapulted from internet phenomenon to real life fashion maven, garnering a spokesmodel deal with clothing company Dimepiece and even hosting the VMAs. Who knows what this wacky granny will do next? Whatever it is, the world is watching now.
