It's kind of incredulous that February has already arrived, snow-less, brown and 10 degrees warmer than 2015's. But you know what? It can only mean that January was just that much fun. And with New York fashion week, a few weddings, and an impromptu trip to Los Angeles with Dani in April coming up, I really really can't wait for the rest of 2016 to come around. But you know, not so fast that I can't even remember how long January is supposed to be.

Anyway, meet Calgary's Hadiza Amedu-Ode, one of Mode Models' #NewYearNewFaces whom I had the absolute pleasure of dressing up in some of my favourite sustainable garb and photographing for New Classics Studios. You can always shop the looks below or head over here to take a gander at the full editorial.



Did you know that capes really do make you feel 68% cooler than usual and more capable of accomplishing awesome life feats? Well, it's a thing. And I would just so happen to know all thanks to my friends over at FSHNBNKR.

Anyway, because Eric and I have a photoshoot for New Classics to get to in the next few hours, I'm going to awkwardly end this post here.  But if you have FOMO, you can always tag along on Snapchat @alyyyssalauu for some BTS shenanigans.

Also, Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

Fun fact: in two days, I will be turning twenty-four years old. Twenty-four. The age that tween-Alyssa used to think was really old. So it kind of has me thinking weird thoughts about where I am in my life and what I want to accomplish with the rest of it (there are no concrete plans right now, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow, you know?). I mean, yeah, it will just be another day, but it will also be the twenty-fourth time I have traveled around the sun. Anyway, there really was no point to that spiel except to express some sort of bland existential crisis. But hey, I recently found my faux fur leather coat and Eric has been consistently petting my arm. What's new with you?
