We are ABSOLUTELY thrilled that Ugg has come out with a great fashion clog bootie called "Lynnae". The clog is here to stay, and being Uggs, you get the coziness that they always offer. Imagine, fashion and comfort together...what a novel idea!!! These "clogs" have a leather exterior, and are lined with sheepskin; they can be worn with the flap rolled up and/or down... thinking ahead, they'd look great worn with your favourite skinny jeans!!! These aren't going to last, so come in and check them out NOW!!!

OMG!!! We just got a HUGE shipment of Velvet today! There is so much amazing fall stuff, I cannot contain myself! We have not even unpacked all of this stuff yet.. so pictures will follow shortly! There is lots of great dresses and some pretty cool lace tanks!!

P.S. We got a replenishment of all the Velvet basics, long sleeved and short sleeved, drop by because the sizes go fast!!!

What's Mabel Wearing????

This week Mabel is showcasing the new Winter Kate Jasmine Cardy in Ivory, I love this jacket! The feather print is unique, but not a pattern overload! I decided to put a Splendid racerback black tank underneath to make the pattern pop underneath. I think this print looks effortless layered with a simple top. I then added the Claudia denim beads to Mabel, and topped it off with a Chan Luu grey scarf. I think the look is bohemian, but still subtle enough to wear as an everyday outfit!

I know its not Ugg season yet, but now is definitely the time to go out and buy this super comfy boot. Come September/ October sizes will be picked over and you might just miss out! Luckily we just received a huge shipment and my fav new pair is the Bailey Triple Button boot. I am in love with the button detail! We also received the Classic tall and short Ugg boots in chestnut, grey and black, Cardi Knit boot in charcoal and grey, and the short Bailey Button boot in chestnut. Uggs are the perfect fall/winter boot come in and check them out while we still have lots of sizes and colors (these boots go fast!).

New Arrivals!!!

It seems like fall shipments are starting earlier this year, but I really can't complain, I love seeing all the new clothes!! Today, we received pieces by Juicy Couture and Vince. I love the new Chiffon Back Cardigan in Still Night, which is a navy color. But, we will be getting it in black too (as pictured). This cardigan is adorable and adds a girlie touch to any outfit! It looks really cute over a tee shirt or a silk tank. I had the navy cardigan over a striped tee and it looked super cute!! The Paisley Chiffon Tank arrived in Huckleberry and is such a beautiful print, which will be great for fall with jeans and a cardigan.

We also received the Vince Double Layer Drape Sweater in Thunder, I love this sweater! It is so cozy and soft because it is lined, making it two layers! This is on my wish-list for fall, I think I would wear it on every fall day with pretty much everything I own!!!

Swing by and take a look at the new fall stuff, trust me you will probably be wishing it would get colder so you could wear it (or at least I am)!


Winter Kate is HERE!

At last, new Winter Kate has arrived! All three styles that we received are stunning and are so easy to wear! The Jasmine cardy, in ivory, has a feather print and an asymmetrical hem ( longer in the front and shorter in the back). This cardigan drapes beautifully, and I love the feather print. The Ginger cardigan also has the same fun feather print but comes in a dark grey/blue. The sheer silk-chiffon cardigan is light and breezy and is a great piece to wear on a hot summer day. However, I think the darker color will transition perfectly into the fall season. For those of you who missed out on the Eden jacket the first time around we received this kimono style jacket in black! This silk jacket will fit easily into anyone's wardrobe and is a great alternative to the typical black cotton/wool cardigan.

New Today!

We JUST received new Graham & Spencer and Velvet sweaters! The cashmere Velvet sweaters are super soft, seriously, I hope it gets colder so I can have a chance to wear one! We got the two styles: "Idra" in Charcoal and "Conesa" in Feather. Both styles will be great for fall, and work with the rest of your existing fall wardrobe. The Graham & Spencer shredded sweater is also super cool...such a unique piece. I would pair it with a white tank underneath, and skinny jeans... total rocker chick. The Graham & Spencer has to be my favorite piece of the shipment! I am in LOVE!

What's Mabel Wearing????

This week Mabel will be enjoying the sunshine in her off-white Mai Joie dress. I love the floral print on this dress, and the colors in it are perfect for fall!  We have Mabel dressed for summer, but the Mai dress would also transition into fall with the addition of tights, boots, and a scarf!

I made the look more bohemian by adding two Chan Luu necklaces, along with the brown woven Brave belt. The Mai dress looks great belted, but looks just as great left more flowy! Seriously, Mabel looks like a celebrity, all she needs is a Balenciaga bag, big shades, a floppy hat, and she might be mistaken as Nicole Richie!

The Kimmie Jean

We are all big fans of 7 For all Mankind jeans, and they have created another version of their boot cut jean that we have fallen in love with.  The boot cut jean is modeled after Kim Kardashian who is notorious for her curvy figure (and fabulous bum).

Most of us have experienced the annoying gap that occurs in the back of our jeans and either have to get them tailored or wear a belt, but this jean has a higher waistband in the back which eliminates gaping! The jean is also super stretchy which makes them really comfy. These are the perfect curvy girl jean. Come in and give them a try (your bum may just look as good as Kim's)!

Vince Cargo Pocket Leggings

The Vince Cargo Pocket Legging has to be my favorite pant for fall, and I admit I have even worn them on a hot summer day because I love them so much! The cargo pant is a huge trend, and Vince intreprets the trend in a simple and classic way. The cargo legging is not blantantly obvious, so they will become a classic staple in your closet. All you need to do is add a pair of boots, and you will have the perfect fall outfit!

Another plus, they have to be the most comfy pant I own! The cargo legging is higher waisted, giving you extra coverage. Seriously, I think everyone should drop by and try these pants! They will not dissapoint! Also, Vince will no longer be making any of their ponte pants, so this will be your last chance to buy a pair!

Amanda Uprichard

We have just recieved the Joan dress by Amanda Uprichard in lavender. Amanda Uprichard is a new brand we are carrying in the store, and this is our first piece! The Joan dress is adorable with a flattering fit, this dress would be perfect for a summer night out! The lavendar color makes it unique from any of your LBDs. If you find the dress a little too short for your liking, you could easily make it a tunic by pairing it with leggings! Drop by and check out the Joan Dress, this is our first piece from Amanda Uprichard, but definitely not our last!

New Cargos

We were anxiously anticipating the James Jean Twiggy Cargo Leggings, and they're finally here!!! They are amazing: butter soft feel, with a higher rise! Also, we received the Rich and Skinny silk cargos, which are so cool, and a huge fall trend! Stop by, and check them out before they are gone!

What's Mabel Wearing????

An anonymous reader requested that Mabel wear a piece of clothing 2 ways: dressed up and dressed down, so here it is! The piece we chose to showcase is the off-white Joie Simonie top. As you can see, this is a very versatile piece, all you need to do is change up the jewellery! For casual, Mabel is wearing the top with a Jocelyn Kennedy wooden necklace along with a Karyn Chopik leaf necklace. For dressy, Mabel is wearing a double strand pearl necklace layered with a pearl russian necklace by Jocelyn Kennedy, a Claudia crystal necklace and a silver medallion necklace.

Fall is in the Air...

So, I know that it feels like we've barely had summer, but Fall is just around the corner. Because of this, you've probably noticed cashmere and wool goodies making an appearance amidst all the summer sales of the season. Here, at the store, we've already received a number of "Pre-Fall" of which came from Vince. Vince, a favourite line of ours, is probably best known for their luxe basics. So far this season, they've put forth some great "transitional" pieces: the Twisted Seam (left) and Cashmere Trim Dolman (right)sweaters. Both of these pieces are made from the finest cashmere and/or wool, making them the perfect purchase; they're neither too heavy nor too light...just perfect actually!!!
So, for those of you wanting to get a head start building your Fall wardrobe...come see us (soon)!!!

Love love love Free People!

I have, and always will be, a devoted fan of Free People. Their clothing is always fun, with details which are so unexpected, and beautiful. We just received some super cute sweaters, and tops this past week which are going fast!

Lace is huge right now, and Free People has put its own spin on this trend. Their "Lacey Stripes" top has a batwing sleeve, and slightly flared body, which makes it a great "throw-on" piece; the shirt comes in a white/cream or taupe/ grey combo...the perfect mix of girly and casual!


Joie is one of my all time favourite brands! They never disappoint with their fun feminine tops, and our new shipment is no exception. My two favourite pieces are the "Dyani" and "Catori". The former is a lace button down top paired over a basic black tank, which is both classic and feminine (with a little bit of sexy thrown into the mix); the latter is a black and white plaid top, with ruffle detailing down the front...a feminine touch to an otherwise more "masculine" print. I think these two pieces are timeless, and great additions to anyone's wardrobe.

New Chan Luu!

New Chan Luu scarves have arrived in bright bold colors for summer! Turquoise, green, and fuchsia pink, silk and cashmere scarves are a perfect way to add a pop of color to your summer wardrobe. For those of you who prefer more subtle color, the scarf also comes in great neutrals that can be paired with just about anything. Honestly, what's not to love about these soft, cozy scarves? Come in and take a look! ( They are hard to resist!)

What's Mabel Wearing????

Everyone loved the Joie dress on Mabel this week, so much so, that she was literally stripped... needless to say, we had no choice but to change her!
Mabel is wearing a floral Juicy Couture dress. This is my absolute favorite dress in the store right now; I love the play on the vintage floral trend! Over the dress, Mabel is wearing a Free People Cali Coast pullover in Cocoa. Originally, we had this sweater in Ice Cream (cream), and it did so well, we had to order it in Chocolate as well!!! I have the cream one, and am so tempted to buy the brown one as well! I added a fuschia Chan Luu scarf to complete the look. Brown and pink look so nice together, and the scarf makes the red flowers in the dress POP!
I think this would be a perfect look to transition into the fall, or for a cold day (like yesterday).
Next week, we will put Mabel in a piece and dress it up or down as requested in the last blog :)

What's Mabel Wearing????

This week we had a customer looking for a dress to wear to a wedding. She decided the Joie reptile print dress was the perfect one for her because not only is it a great alternative to the typical girlie dresses we so often see at weddings, but it is also a dress you can wear over and over again. For example, wear it during the day with flip flops, or with leggings and boots in the fall. It is such a versatile piece of you can dress up and/or down!

Mabel is wearing the Joie Stratford Dress with a Brave belt along with crystal necklaces from Jocelyn Kennedy and Claudia.
