Warmth and Fashion can co-exist. You just have to think creatively. Bring texture alive with thick knit sweaters and smooth leathers. If you haven’t already purchased this, you should add a leather (or faux leather) a-line skirt to your wardrobe. The A-Line shape is the most universally flattering shape for women’s skirts and dresses, so it’s well worth trying in different lengths and fabrics.

Layer Up & Stay Warm!

Style Resolutions for 2015

Posted on: Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Resolutions can be scary. Especially when you make promises that take a lot of sacrifice. I’ve made my own resolutions for 2015, including embracing my shape MORE and wearing more outfits that outline my figure, but what sort of Style Resolutions have you made for YOUR New Year? If you are having trouble starting your list here are some tips to get you brain working on How You Can Improve your style for 2015!

Textures for 2015

1. Embrace Texture

When you walk through a boutique, your eyes always find the heavy knit sweats, the silky blouses or the tweed skirts and pants. Without a pattern, textured fabrics that are noticeable by the eye catch attention and make for pleasant winter looks! Take a little break from the solid cotton and allow yourself to experiment with textures.

2. Purchase & Wear a nice Timepiece

Many people have lost the luster for Watches because of the Smart Phone era we live in today. I instantly noticed a person’s wrist when I see them wearing a watch and it stirs up conversation. This is the VERY reason why you should either purchase a new watch, or pull out one from the archives and WEAR it. I wear a watch everyday because not only do have have them time, but I have a nice accessory that ties my look together. Who wants to look tardy? Put that watch on and try to wear it everyday for 2015.

3. Pay attention to the Bare Things

Bare beauty is never out! Ask a makeup artist and they will let you know. For 2015 lets get out skin in gear! Yes, I am a worshipper of concealer, but if worse came to worse and I had to run out of the house, I wouldn’t be in fear like I was 2 years ago when my skin would break out and create dark spots. I took the time to find the right products for my skin, but I did. I began to wash my face often and more efficiently and now I wear less make-up when I could and now my face is reborn. For 2015, join me on this Bare Skin journey.

4. Clean that Closet!

I know. You promised yourself in late August that you would be de-cluttering your closet and storage space. Days to New Years Eve and your closet is still busting at the seams. Let’s fix this problem. Get a bag and toss everything you did not wear this year. Perhaps the item no longer fits, or the style just isn’t your cup of tea anymore. Remember, Telly and I would be happy to help you with this process for the New Year! Visit our Personal Styling Services page and let’s get you some functionality with your closet and put together some cool outfits too!

Musically Crushing: Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk ft. Bruno Mars

Posted on: Monday, December 22, 2014

Name: Mark Ronson  (@MarkRonson)
(aka: Mark Daniel Ronson, his sisters are fashion designer Charlotte Ronson and famous DJ Samantha Ronson)

Associated ActsAmy WinehouseBruno Mars, Rufus Wainwright, Ghostface Killah, Black Lips, Lily Allen,Q-Tip, Tawiah, Andrew Wyatt, Duran Duran, Daniel Merriweather, ODB (aka:Ol’ Dirty Bastard, SBJ, Sweet Baby Jesus), Jordan Galland,Wale, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Adele, Samantha Ronson, Paul McCartney, Katy B

Profession: Musician, DJ, producer, songwriter

Origin: St John’s Wood, London, England

Song we’re crushing onUptown Funk ft. Bruno Mars (@BrunoMars)

Why should you care:  Uptown Funk has been out for a while and we’ve been dancing to it so much that it dawned on us that we should make this our Musically Crushing for the month of December. Mark knows how to do his magic in the studio. He’s been around since 1993! Look at all the people he’s worked with (and that’s just to name a few) we’ve always been huge fans of Mark, we loved his work with Duran Duran’s last Album, ‘All you need is now’, the work he did with the truly  missed Amy Winehouse’s Rehab, Back to Black & You know that I’m no good. If Mark and Bruno released this track a tad earlier, Pharell Williams’ Happy would’ve be at war with Uptown Funk.  Its funky, its dance-able, it’s fun, its funk/pop heaven. The Funk and Disco era of the 1970′s would of been proud of this one. One of our favorite shorties, Bruno Mars; does not disappoint at all with the vocals. As for the music video, I wish Carcia and I were dancing with them in the street. I want Bruno’s pink jacket and Carcia wants his hat (the girl has a enormous hat collection). Lots of people are going to have a blast ringing in 2015 with this jam blasting. (we sure will)

Now for those who have not heard the song yet, have a listen and enjoy the pics of these stylish cuties.

Red and Black Flannel Print

Posted on: Thursday, December 11, 2014

1 DSC_0258 2 DSC_0259 3 DSC_0261

 

Pin on Collar – Vintage, Flannel shirt – Express, Cape – Winners, Jeans – Express, Booties – John Fluevog

There is something special about flannel in red, especially  to Canadians. The lumberjack is somewhat of a cultural icon here. Pair a toque and work boots with a flannel and you have the Lumberjack look down. Here, I wanted to add Flannel to a ‘Grown-up’ look. Growing up, I would wear the flannel shirt as a cover-up to my t-shirts. Now, I button up the  Express shirt and pair it with a cape from Winners for the cool holiday season. If you’re looking for well-made, stretchy, high-waisted jeans, visit Express while you pick up a flannel button down. Not only is this pair comfortable, but it looks great with a blazer or a cheeky tank for summer months. On the feet, we keep warm and dry in a pair of John Fluevog‘s. The big industrial zipper adds a nice modern edge to the classic bootie and the best part? You can do all your Christmas shopping in these babies without aching feet. Comfort and style can co-exist!

Out and About: Atlantis Winery

Posted on: Monday, December 8, 2014

Who wouldn’t want to spend an evening with fellow influencers on a party bus to Atlantis Niagara Winery? We were chauffeured to home of hand crafted premium ice wines to see where the magic happens and try the wines with a complimentary meal. Nine, yes, NINE wines were on the menu for tasting along with a haddock fish meal, hand-rolled Bahanian cigars, deserrts and cheeses. It was a pleasure eating among the very same wine presses that delivered such tasty wines. Both Telly and I brought home bottles of 2013 Gewurztraminer Late Harvest, which is a great balance between sweet and dry. Images of our visit below for your viewing pleasure.

The red carpet is alive with stunning celebrities and style! We start off with the Hollywood Film Awards which was televised this year for the first time.

Check out our video below for a fun rundown of styles we adored and disliked! Perhaps you may pick up some ideas for all those Christmas and New Year Parties you have planned. Don’t Forget to SUBSCRIBE to our Youtube channel ;)
