Toronto is in a deep freeze. Thank God I took pictures last week because there is no way I am venturing out in -20 C weather (without the wind chill) for outfit pictures. Plus what am I going to feature? My Canada Goose jacket and hat with my face covered so I don’t get wind burn or frost bite? I wore my ripped jeans all last week. I love ripped jeans, ever since Sam from “Who’s the Boss?” had to fight her dad Tony to get a pair, I have been obsessed. There is constant debate between myself and other over 35 year old bloggers on how “age appropriate” they are or what age is the cut off. I think I’m still OK. I even bought my daughter a couple of pairs. Would love to hear your thoughts.

What is missing in these photos is my big black coat that I wear and leave in my car while I am running in and out of the shopping mall. It’s been my second home and I know every inch of the place now.

A friend of mine from Chile recently moved to Canada, her and her husband said that Canadians need two winter coats, one for -5 and another for -20. They are right.

I have been getting some requests for my Steven and Chris segment, the link can be found here. Just a note only Canadians can watch it, Americans have a separate link and unfortunately it is not available for anyone else. For a quick photo recap on how I styled jailhouse stripes you can click here. It is also posted on my FB pages.

Anyway here is my outfit post.

    You look amazing – suffering for your art is a good thing when you look this good!


    Ripped jeans are totally acceptable, especially the elegantly distressed ones you are wearing here!
    Love the pairing with the school boy blazer!

    I agree, taking photos during these colder days is hard! Sometimes I wish we could have a green screen in my house that I could just place a sunny background in ever photo lol.


    I love ripped jeans like the ones you have here. I do not like destroyed ones where you wonder if there is any actual pant left. Still I find it hard to explain to my daughter why they are cool. They just are 😉


    I love destroyed jeans and I’m 50. I like the texture. I don’t have a pair but I’m seriously tempted.


    You look great, Iva! Who cares about age – they look great on you!

    I wear ripped jeans all of the time and I’m 43. I think it depends on what you pair with the jeans. I always try to add some polish or even bling to my other pieces. Crop top, ripped tshirt, or an old lady pastel flower sweater set would be a no. 🙂



    first I am so glad I stumbled across your blog!! I am a newly 40 yr trying to break out of a fashion frump – I mean slump, and I really enjoy your blog!

    i love love LOVE ripped jeans. Just love them. I don’t think there is an age limit to them but its all in HOW you wear them (although I can not stand the ripped skinny jeans, I despise those rather passionalty)


    I need jeans like yours in my life!
