i’m cassandra mcd, i live and work in toronto, ontario. i’m your average CUBE-DWELLER, working a 9-to-5 in a typical office with its pale walls, gray carpet, and florescent lights. i spend most of my life at work – roughly 2080 HOURS in a year. there’s nothing GLAMOROUS AND CHIC about it.
i’m no fashionista, designer, artist or photographer although i seriously wish i were. i think i use my clothes as a form of CREATIVE EXPRESSION. except i don’t quite yet know what my style says about me.
i was going through my closet recently and was taken aback by the amount of STUFF I have. Mortified actually. TWENTY PAIRS OF PANTS! How was this possible?! How many times have I caught myself saying, “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!” or “I HATE EVERYTHING!” or “I NEED A NEW….”? Well, what I needed to do was to STOP THE MADNESS.
I needed to TAKE STOCK of what I owned and learn to WORK-WIT-WHAT-I-GOT, SWITCH-IT-UP, MIX-N-MATCH, and be MORE CREATIVE with my work-wear. So I started this personal style blog as a way to rediscover my work wardobe and save some dough in the process.
