Fall into a Busy Cardigan

Posted on: Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Cardigan – KARV, Led Zepplin Tank – Winners (cool option here), Jeans – One Tea Spoon (FitzRoy Boutique), Boots -Express

The Boho look can survive through the winter months, even though it originates from sunny California.

Prints, rips and design make up this fun look, so get creative. This fab cardigan from KARV is not only extremely warm, but its graphic patterns make it original and easy to wear. I could have easily styled this with an all-black ensemble and it still would have rocked. Here, I matched the Cardigan up with a summer find, my Led Zepplin Tank Top. Why do a plain T-shirt when you have the allowance to go crazy? I added some wooden bead necklaces to add that rocker edge. Simple gold or silver chains would have worked here as well. To add MORE statement to this bold look, I decided to go with a distressed denim I purchased from FitzRoy Boutique by One Tea Spoon! I love these jeans! I wore these to the 30 Seconds To Mars concert and got major compliments from the Leto Brothers themselves. Yes, Jared Leto and Shannon Leto. Sigh! Anyway, rather than going with black, I when with a beige boot with a relaxed design and added gold bangles to the wrists. Easy Breezy in Winter!

Use those thick knits and mix and match with accessories to create a casual boho winter look to stay fashionable warm this summer.

The Edge Of a Sweater Dress

Posted on: Monday, November 3, 2014

 Dress – Tristan (similar here), First belt – The Bay, Second belt – Old

A Sweater Dress will save your life. This type of dress goes from Work to Play easily with a bit of imagination. Here, I’m giving a quick How To with a swift change in the belt. The dress looks fine on its own with no accessories and a simple heel, but if you want to throw them off a bit at the office or at that conference, add a handsome belt with strong hardware. The dress almost takes on the same vibe as a suit. Afterwards, when going to drinks and maybe a bit of dancing, add a fun embellished belt. Try to find a sweater dress with a bit of a edgy feel. What sold me on this one here is the leather sleeves and the shoulder-pad effect. So rockstar. Belts aren’t your thing? Get creative with your jewelry! Add necklaces and bracelets or huge earrings.

Mellow Yellow Dress

Posted on: Wednesday, October 29, 2014

1 DSC_0250 2 DSC_0252 3 DSC_0257 4 DSC_0260 5 DSC_0265

 Yellow Dress – Similar here, here & here, White Turban – Similar here, Sandals – Aldo (old, but similar here)

Women should try to incorporate Yellow more often. Its a bright color that truly brings sunshine on a cloudy day. Yeah, I know its not a Rock n Roll Bad Ass color, but throw a leather jacket over Yellow and you’re Hot. Here, I didn’t even need to accessorize, thanks to the white sheer overlay on the chest of this dress. I enjoy my curves, so this dress was fun to wear. The design of this dress was inspired by Kim Kardashian’s style and love for curve-loving outfits. To add even more drama, I added a white turban and pulled my hair to the side. I would easily wear this to drinks or dinner. Remember, when you want to show off those curves watch the length of the dress! Midi (below the knee) is the most flattering for the body-con style dress.

Trends for Spring Summer 2015 According to Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week SS15

Posted on: Monday, October 27, 2014

Never question why Bloggers, Fashion Editors, Stylists, Buyers and other Fashion industry folks head over to the Tents to see what is to come. By watching the runways, you can start to plot out what you and your clients will want to wear next Spring. Its like pre-shopping! Using Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week as a reference, check our Trend findings of what you will want to grab from stores for your own closet!

1970s Glam
We applaud the designers who used the glamorous 1970s as a reference for their runway presentations. Wide legged pants, large floral prints, stripes, statement jump suits and beaded sheer remind us of the richness of rock and roll and disco! If you have wide legged pants from seasons ago, hang on to them for your spring evenings out.

White
After a winning season last Spring & Summer, White is still all the rage. Most of the collections this season featured a few white dresses and two pieces. It is east to tell that the LBD is now in competition with the LWD! See our favorites from this season.

Designers (listed by row Left to Right)  - Sid Neigum, Mikhael Kale, Matthew Gallagher, Narces, Sid Neigum, Rudsak
 
Green
Spring is all about new life and restoring! Green grass and beautiful flowers. What better color to wear than luxe Green! Personally, Green is one of our favorite colors! People don’t easily gravitate towards it, but it can do wonders for a wardrobe when paired with the colors of purple, pink and yellow.

Designers (listed by row Left to Right)  - Hayley Elsaesser, Malorie Urbanovitch, Malorie Urbanovitch
 
Pastels
Pastels took a back seat a few seasons ago while animal print and plaid stayed in the spotlight. Designers are showing us that the lighter, more delicate shades are coming back! We do enjoy pastels paired with neutrals such as beige and tan.

Designers (listed by row Left to Right)  - Melissa Nepton, Rachel Sin, Mackage, Soia & Kyo, Narces
 
Menswear Inspired for The Ladies
What would women’s wear be without a bit of menswear inspiration! From the collared shirt dress to suit jackets, women can get that bold and structured look borrowing from Menswear staples.

Designers (listed by row Left to Right)  - Caitlin Power, Klaxon Howl, Klaxon Howl, Rachel Sin

Southbrook Vineyards (below) is Canada’s first certified biodynamic & organic winery. its delicious and you feel great drinking a wine produced only a few hours away from the city.

A coffee for turning down? Yes, there is such a thing! Counting Sheep offers a bedtime blend, perfect for the coffee worshipper who wants a cup of java before turning in for the night.

If you drink milk or if chicken is a must have in your life, you may want to find Rolling Meadow products. The Rolling Meadow treats animals right, feeding them with grass in a non-toxic environment.

A healthy and rich alternative to juice is Zpirit. Zpirit Infuzion is the the first bottled water in Canada to uniquely blend both herbs and real fruits!1 IMG_1559

Station Cold Brew Coffee is approved by us! Forget the fast food versions of cold coffee. This is the real brew everyone needs to stock up on. Learn more here!

So, so good! We’ve been fans of ChocolaChocola for a long time now and the latest flavors need to be stored away in your cupboards for yourself and guests. Don’t you love these cheeky names? Hot Bitch and Green with Envy are our favorites, but we’d eat the entire table if we had no self control.

While stopping in on The Urban Gallery’s ART OF FOOD event, we met Urban Source Catering‘s fabulous chef , Chef Lyndon. Check out this colorful and delicious table set-up? His food presentation was a HIT with guests.

This is what you give to your guests who dislike plain mustard. Whisky & Spice turn the flavor on it’s head here with booze infused mustard’s. Each one has a unique and tasty flavor! Might I add that Whisky & Spice will be at our #GlamNFab Pop-Up Holiday Event? Mark November 23rd in your calendars and see you at The Gladstone Hotel on Queen Street West!
