Valentines day is quickly approaching and although I don't have any formal plans, I'm having fun planning out a love day wardrobe. Enter this gorgeous oxblood number, the Lana dress from Canadian designer Rachel Sin. I fell in love with the designs of Rachel Sin during this past Fashion Week and was absolutely smitten during the runway show. Not only am I thrilled to be wearing one of her designs, I'm also totally in love with this bold burgundy colour - there really is a power in wearing a red dress! Pair everything with some strappy heels from Le Chateau and some curls, and you're Valentines Day ready - even if you don't have plans yet.

As someone who's trying to build their shoe collection, I appreciate the variety that Le Chateau shoes provide. For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, Le Chateau is a Canadian retailer with stores all throughout Canada and the Middle East. When I saw these strappy heels, I knew that they had to be mine. Not only do the straps add interest to your basic black pump, but they also make the shoe extremely comfortable. I also appreciate the closed, pointed toe that allows me to wear these gorgeous shoes during the colder months.
Since I'm wearing all Canadian brands, it only seemed fitting to visit one of my favourite local hangouts! XO Bisous is a new addition to my area in Toronto, and already has gathered a following for their delicious pastries and expertly decorated space. I'm a sucker for their Choux Balls and can't seem to walk by without picking one up! If you're in Toronto, you've got to check out XO Bisous.
