New Velvet Shipment

We just got a huge new shipment of Velvet today!! Seriously, there is something for everyone! There are some cute summer dresses that are perfect for holidays or once it warms up (whichever comes first). My favorite are the tube dresses, they are great for a summer day or even as a beach coverup! We also got replenishments of all the favorite Velvet basics and some boyfriend "burnout" tees.

Finally, we got these awesome shoulder padded tops that are crystal encrusted on the shoulders. They are such a trendy piece as bold shoulders are a HUGE trend. And I promise, the shoulder pads are NOT huge!!!

More Color Please!!

With the onset of summer, we have celebrated by filling our boutique with tonnes of color! Choose from any color on the color wheel: green, pink, orange, red, purple, blue, and more! This year, feel free to add a pop of color to a basic black outfit, or mix and match colors to make a bold statement. If you are not comfortable with color, we suggest wearing a Love Quotes scarf in the color of your choice. Add it to an outfit of jeans and the basic black and grey shirts you have collected over the winter. However, if you are adventurous, mix a green dress with pink accessories or a yellow silk tank with a beautiful printed cardigan. The options are endless! Carpe Diem!

Lauren Moshi

We all love Lauren Moshi here at Yu. The fun graphic designs are all hand drawn by Lauren making each tank, t-shirt, or hoodie an original piece of art. Our two new favorites are the bow t-shirt and diamond tongue tank. Both look fantastic under a little cardigan!

Boyfriend, Boyfriend, Boyfriend.

Now that it's warm outside, we can finally wear some spring stuff in this city! I really hope the weather lasts :)

Anyways, my absolute favorite fashion "trend" is boyfriend-anything (tees, jeans, tanks, shorts, blazers). But please remember to mix boyfriend items with your tighter fitting items, otherwise it gets a little sloppy looking! For example, if you are wearing a boyfriend tee, pair it with skinny jeans, or if you are wearing boyfriend jeans pair them with a tighter top!

The boyfriend items are super comfy, but still fashionable, which is what I am always looking for! We just got a shipment of the James Perse boyfriend tops and some Rich and Skinny boyfriend shorts (great alternative to the jeans for summer).

Sir Alistair Scarves

So we know alot of you are fans of Sir Alistair scarves and a whole bunch have arrived in bright colors for spring and summer. These scarves first became a hit with the stars in 2007 when Drew Barrymore raved about them during an interview with London Times. Each scarf, handmade in India, comes with its own personal message of peace, love, karma, or fate.

Since the summer weather has finally arrived, one of these light cotton/linen blend scarves would be the perfect accessory over a tank, or just throw one on in the evening to keep you warm and cozy.

We LOVE Sequins & Sparkle

We've gotten so many clients asking us if sequins are only for evening. Well, a true fashionista doesn't care what anyone thinks, but as far as we're concerned, it's WAY more fun to wear them when not expected. For instance you could wear this great Vince dress (pictured) with a denim jacket and flats, or glam it up with some fab heels and a leather jacket. How cool is that???

The same "rule" applies for jewellery as well. Some feel that sparklies are more appropriate for evening, but we've always felt that the juxtaposition of the dressy and casual to be a much more current way to wear them. The next time you have on a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, rather than throwing on a basic hoop earring, try some crystal chandeliers instead, and while you're at it throw on a whack of crystal necklaces too. When you think "is this too much???" add another one!!! As Rachel Zoe, our fave celebrity stylist would say, "There's no such thing as too much...more is always more!!!"

Fashionistas unite and "Excessorize"

Just a warning to fellow fashionistas and magpies alike, "Claudia" has arrived!!! We just received our latest shipment of sparkly goodies from Montreal-based, designer extraordinaire Claudia Grundman: long necklaces, short necklaces, crystal necklaces, stone necklaces etc. etc....we have them all. For those of you already familiar with her work, she's once again outdone herself; more is still more, so come in and add a trinket or two (or three, or four) to your collection, and for those who've yet to experience the allure of Claudia's jewellery, I envy you because you're in for a real treat. Enjoy!!!

So a big trend for spring/summer is lace! It was seen all over the runways during fashion week! We have many takes on the trend, the "bedroom lingerie" look from Odd Molly and a more subtle take from Plastic Island (as pictured). Whether you want to fully embrace the trend or add just a hint to your wardrobe, I think everyone should try some lace!
