Song we’re crushing on: Shut up and Dance
Why should you care: Their track Shut Up and Dance is contagious. Earlier last week at around 4 am in the morning, Carcia and I were on route to a styling gig and this song came on; let’s just say it turned our tired frowns upside down. It’s fun, fresh, happy and has a good message. Shut up and dance (Whenever I have an issue or feel stressed, that is exactly what I do)! The new wave track does not ease off from the synthesizer s at all. The video for the song is just as cheerful as the song its self. It’s kind of crazy with all the 80′s references but hey, its a music video right? Bright colors, lots of dancing, big smiles and you can see for yourself here. Have a listen and prepare to shut up and dance.
Starting off as a surfer or skater brand shoe, SANUK was a unique item for Beach goers to enjoy. Since 1997, the brand has evolved as a joyful, happy lifestyle. The founder, Jeff Kelley, only employs individuals who skate and or surf meaning everyone involved with this brand truly cares about spreading happiness and active living. When you have a pair of SANUK’s you’re literally walking on a yoga mat all day! Yes, the brand’s insole is made of the same material as your comfy yoga mat. Celebs such as Matthew McConaughey, Halle Berry and Brad Pitt walk daily in their SANUK footwear. We can’t wait to show off our pairs of SANUK, so stay tuned to the blog.
The brand has some great items to come this Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. We recently walked through their preview where the beach was the theme. Don’t be fooled by the hashtag FeeltheBeach. SANUK is offering up shoe styles that you could rock with a pretty summer dress in the city, or booties that you could rock at a concert or club. While taking in the shoe goodness that was SANUK, we had the chance to check out Smash Juice Bar (coming to Toronto soon) and it was delicious! As you know, we are big juice fans and knowing that we will have a local place to juice up without having to make a pit stop at home is such a great concept. Check out our images below to see what’s in store for SANUK.
Spring Cleaning and Daylight Savings. Spring is a new day! Its a launch into Newness. This doesn’t only apply to your home and your clock, but it applies to your closet too! Being a Torontonian, Winter means Black and Grey, period. Of course, Black and Grey have their place, but believe me, embracing some clothing color in March will make you feel fresh and light. My favorite Spring/Summer color is Yellow! This bright hue is great on my skin tone and it goes so well with other colors! Black, Green, Purple! I could go on and on. A fashion icon that loves this color as much as I do would be Solange, who does color oh-so well. You can’t miss her on a red carpet.
This dress is short, cute and versatile. I’ve worn it to a product launch and even to the office with the right shoes. To toughen up this dainty dress to my liking, I paired it with pointed-toe Doc Martens. What doesn’t work with Docs? You’ll see this dress out and about, I promise. What colors are you excited to wear this Spring/Summer? Let us know!
GUESS‘s brand keeps getting stronger and stronger! The retailer is on point following all the trends consumers are going crazy for this Spring and Summer! Florals, 2 piece outfits, dark denim one pieces and fancy business casual wear. Don’t worry though, as GUESS is still serving up the classic cut-off denim and button down crops. One thing I noticed and appreciated was the design of the latest GUESS handbags. Gone are the over-done, over labeled and branded bags for classic, structured bags for any lady who wants that chic hangbag look. Of course we have pictures here for you below.
What items do you like best?
Expect to see these items the next time you walk through your local GUESS location.
The key to stellar winter styling is Layering. If you layer properly, you won’t only keep warm, but you’ll look chic as well. It always start with the winning item. Here, the winning item is the KARV Clothing winter jacket. Any coat with leather inserts is a great buy as this trend is here to stay. Rather then black, we worked with grey and it only adds depth and more interest. A simple red top (JACOB) gives us some color and to make the look party ready, we threw in a statement skirt (Express) with over-the-knee boots (ALDO). For even MORE drama, throw in a plaid scarf (ZARA), beret with a vintage broach and you’re set. There is a lot of elements here, but it still works together for a winning winter look.
I find that most of us women buy the prettiest rings, but because we cannot see the pieces throughout the year, the rings go unworn. What’s the point in buying all these baubles if they don’t get worn?
Have have come up with a great little idea so I can keep tabs on what rings I have and what ring styles I lack. My idea keeps the rings on display! Watch our video below and get away from storing your jewels in a box.
Even if we didn’t want it, Overalls were the come-back kid of the Fashion Must Have list. Before this successful year, Overalls were reserved for children and farmers. Here, I do my best to own these overalls by pairing them with a simple White T, a turban and chunky boots. So why does this look work? When it comes to Overalls it all comes down to fit meaning, not too baggy, but not tight either. Once you achieve the right fit, you must master the accessories that will make this look suit you! The mature woman. I prefer chunky boots like these John Fluevog Defenders, but you could easily switch the boots our for a nice black pump, and tousle your hair for a sexy look. If you don’t like to play with your look, denim overalls may not be your thing, but if you’re looking for new, funky ways to wear denim, this look is for you!
