Welcome To My Blog!
Hi Everyone, I’m Victoria, a dreamer mixed entrepreneur, who has an infatuation for all things pretty and luxurious. Haute is my little space on the world wide web to share all the pretty things that make me “oh-la-la”; and I hope it has that effect on you too!

A little about my background? I graduated as Valedictorian from The University of Waterloo, where I obtained my degree in Arts & Business, specializing in Speech Communication and Human Resource Management. Following graduation, I couldn’t ignore my hearts desire any longer, and enrolled at George Brown College for Fashion Techniques and Design; where I graduated top of my class. While studying at George Brown College, I also achieved my certificate in Image Consulting; which ties all of my specialties together perfectly.

In my spare time, I love exploring the city with friends and family, making fabulous clothes, and traveling the world. My goal is to visit every continent – more than once is preferable. A weird fact about me: I love public speaking!

Come say hello to me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.


Please Note:
Openness and authenticity are so important to me, so I want you to know right up front that I do work with affiliate programs. As a reader, I want you to be aware that if you click on a link and make a purchase I may receive a very small commission from that purchase. This in no way takes away from the authenticity of this blog, as I only work with brands and link to products that I would buy myself, with my own hard earned money. All of the brands I link to are carefully selected by myself, and all options are my own!

Your privacy is also important to me. I will never sell or distribute any personal information shared or collected on this site.

Also, I aim to give others the credit they deserve with every post; but it is sometimes hard to find the source. Please email me if something is posted and not credited that belongs to you or someone you know, so I can source it properly!

    Hi Victoria.
    I didn’t randomly stumble upon your blog but I came by with a mission to properly check you out (not in a creepy way but in a truly one-fashionist-to-another way). I’ve been referred to this blog by a relative of yours – think of the most whacked one of them all and you will know which Shelsen I’m referring to. Long story short, loved everything I read today and will be coming by loads to read more in the future. You have some beautiful pictures and smart blurbs here and this has been a highlight of my day while I sit at my desk and pretened to work on some discounted cash flow models.. or something like that.

  5. What a cheerful and lovely blog : ) I work in fashion as well, in Milan…but in the marketing field, the boring part ; )

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You made my day :)

  7. I love the stuff in your blog! Thanks for posting all the wonderful designs and pictures!

    Hey Victoria!!
    We have been Facebook friends for awhile, and both went to Waterloo! Every once in awhile your posts would catch my eye on Facebook….but today I stopped by and read a bunch of them, and I just want to say – awesome blog!
    You have a great eye for fashion, and I found so many things making me want to pull out my wallet! :) I’m looking to start my own blog – I work in retail in Toronto and want to connect the working world, with fashion and being a new mom. I’m definitely going to follow your blog, hopefully you can follow me when I’m up and running. Also if you have any advice on the best way to get blogging going – I’ve done a lot of research and now its just a click away! :)
    Happy new year! :)

    • Hi Jocelyne!!
