These bangles are incredibly beautiful, you won,t be able to take your eyes off your wrist!

What's Mabel Wearing?

All summer Mabel has been dying to get into a pair of shorts (since Mabel doesn't have any legs, she's usually bottomless...haha), so when this fabulous pair of lacy shorts arrived from Free People, how could she possibly resist? These shorts are great for all occasions, and can be dressed up or down...just because they're lace doesn't mean they can't be worn casually!!! Follow Mabel's lead and pair them with a comfy sweater from Joie, and a Chan Luu scarf for a flirty casual look.

Free People: New Romantics

I have always had a love/hate relationship with Free People; I LOVE all of the pieces, and HATE how I can't possibly own it all ( It's always impossible to choose a favourite piece). This shipment is full of soft pastels in varying shades of pinks and creams, and is appropriately named the "New Romantics" collection. Here is a quick look at a few of the pieces we received:

Cristolbal Sweater in Creme

Scalloped Short received in Ivory and Black

Pleated Tunic in Ivory and Ballet Accordion Top in Rouge

Scalloped Shorts in Ivory paired with the Pegasus Sweater in Creme
This is just a little taste of what arrived, so hurry in!!!

Mabel's New Necklace!

Mabel needed a little pick-me-up on such a gloomy day, so she went shopping! Her new necklace from Jocelyn Kennedy is definitely a statement piece, how can you be grumpy about the weather with such a stunning piece adorning your neck?

What's Mabel Wearing?

Mabel is rocking the neutral color tones in the Molly dress from Joie and multiple strands from Jocelyn Kennedy. For a more causal, everyday look, Mabel could add a belt and a chunky knit sweater. I really love combining neutrals, it can create a great urban safari look and you can always add a pop of color with a fabulous pair of shoes!

More Charlotte...

Another fabulous Charlotte Tarantola cardigan was received today: the "Instinct." This sweater is great not only because of the leopard print in the front, which we've already declared a "basic," but the back is composed (almost) entirely of matte black sequins!!! I'd throw this cardi on over a little silkie, and skinny jeans...For those of you not quite ready for the animal print, this cardigan also came in a solid black.


Leopard Print Anyone???

Equipment is my go-to brand for button down shirts; I just love the look of them. I honestly wear one at least once a versatile. The new leopard print shirts we received will be absolutely perfect for fall...Wear one with skinny jeans, bell bottoms, or even tucked into the new Joie leather skirt. If you are skeptical of leopard,don't be, it's a basic... it goes with everything.

What's Mabel Wearing: Transition Edition

The weather is so up and down here that is a necessity to quickly transition an outfit from summer to fall, or vice versa. My absolute favourite way to take an outfit from summer to fall, is by throwing a sweater over a summer dress. Today, Mabel is wearing the Splendid "Polka Dot Dress" with Velvet's "Dione" sweater. For jewellery, I kept it light with long necklaces from Jocelyn Kennedy, Karyn Chopik, and BRITTA. The statement necklace by JK is perfect for fall as it will balance out a heavier sweater. I'd also change up the shoes, for summer I see this with a nice pair of wedge sandals, but for fall, short biker boots would add a bit of edge.

Irie sweater in Charcoal and Luxe sweater in Fallow

Loleta sweater in Fallow and Dione sweater in Cougar

I know it still seems a little early to be thinking of fall, but these sweater are the perfect thing to snuggle up in on a rainy day. All four sweaters have a relaxed fit, and are great for layering. The neutral colors also make them super easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe.

More Aviator Chic

Here's another pant from 7FAM's "Aviator Chic" collection: the "Maggee." This pant, available in Charcoal, is another great piece to add to your wardrobe...pair it with a basic tee, and flip flops for an everyday casual look, OR with a platform shoe, and fitted tank for a sexy evening feel.

Maggee (Cargo) Pant

OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!

JK Tawa Nut Necklaces

OMG, I am beyond enamoured with Jocelyn Kennedy's latest batch of baubles. These "Tawa Nut" necklaces are absolutely to-die for!!! I know these are not for everyone, but if they're calling out your name, RUN, don't walk into the store!!!


*Claire, I think that this necklace would be great for you in Mexico...What do you think???


Uggs: Kaylee Clog

Kaylee Clog
Cute new clogs from Ugg have arrived. This clog is slightly higher then the original, with a braided leather strap across the top. If you still haven't had a chance to try these clogs on, you're seriously missing out; they are sooo comfy!!

Loving Polka Dots!!!

I'm obsessed with everything polka dotted at the moment, which explains my love of this Splendid dress. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! I think it's a classic dress, with a whimsical touch...pair this with a denim jacket for the perfect summer outfit, but throw an over sized knitted sweater on top, with a great pair of boots, and you've got a great look for fall...we're all about practicality!!!

Polka Dot Dress (Available in Navy/White)

More Splendid, Anyone???

Come have a look before they're all gone!!!

New Ella Moss

We received a great little shipment from Ella Moss the other's a little teaser for you:

Girl's Best Friend Top

Papillon Scoop Top

More Stripes

Rugby Striped Crew Neck Sweater

Stripes, always popular for summer, continues into the fall with Vince's "Rugby Striped Crew Neck." I love the boxy shape of this'll be THE perfect piece to throw on over anything be it a tank, tee, or dress...a must buy!!!

What's Mabel Wearing?

Mabel is going casual this week in a Wildfox tee, and Doma leather vest. This look is definitely edgier then what she's used to, but the strands from Jocelyn Kennedy add a little sparkle, giving Mabel's look a girly touch. I love the contrast between the super edgy leather vest, and the crystal and turquoise necklaces!

A.D.D. is an Italian company that specializes in down-filled jackets warm enough for Edmonton winters! I know it seems early, as we have barely had summer, but it would be wise to start building your fall wardrobe now before sizes are picked over.

Introducing David Lerner

We're ecstatic to welcome David Lerner to the Yu "family." David launched his eponymous clothing line in August 2008 wanting to combine both aesthetic, and comfort. What resulted were some of the most sought after leggings in Hollywood; not only are his leggings ultra comfortable to wear, but he's infused his designs with such unique detail that you'd be hard pressed to find another pair (similar) out there. Below is just a sampling of what we received...
