What's Mabel Wearing?

I love the summer months...warmer weather, no school, longer days, but when summer starts to turn into fall, I always get (more than) a little excited. Of all the seasons, I love fall/winter clothes the best. It's hard to beat layering on warm wool sweaters, and soft cashmere scarves!!! I find that fall/winter clothes have a feeling of luxury that summer cloths just can't match. This week Mabel is dressed in the "Gorgi Cardi" from Odd Molly; this wool/alpaca blend sweater has beautiful knit detail, and looks fabulous over the "Orly" top from Joie. Jocelyn Kennedy jewels, and a Chan Luu scarf finish off the look.

Just In from Line

One of my all time faves is back: the "Shelby" from Line. I adore this sweater...can't say enough great things about it. Great fit, great colour, great feel...what's not to love??? I can't wait to wear this over a Nation Ltd. tee, skinny jeans, and a fabulous pair of worked in, distressed boots. Don't hate me, but I can't wait for the leaves to fall...

Shelby (received in Brook...Blk/Blue/Grey/Brown)

*Sharon, what do you think of this one??? Room for one more striped item???

New Fall Nougat!

Come in and check out the latest from Nougat!

Ella Moss

Just received a small, but fabulous delivery of Ella Moss! Included amongst the goodies are the "Silk Autumn" dress in Night, and "Silk Autumn" maxi skirt in Black. I ADORE both pieces...they can easily be worn right now, but would be just as relevant in the fall/winter.

Silk Autumn Dress in Night

I love this dress! I think it would pair perfectly with a cropped denim jacket, and flip flops right now, AND would be fantastic worn with a chunky cable knit sweater, leggings, and knee-high boots in the fall...soooo cozy!!!

Silk Autumn Maxi Skirt in Black

This is a great skirt...super versatile! Wear this skirt right now with a fitted tank and flats, but with a turtleneck and leather jacket, it'll be the perfect fall outfit!!!

What's Mabel Wearing?

I love blue and brown .... but usually not worn together, however as soon as Mabel put on the "Silk Autumn" dress from Ella Moss, I became a fan. The blue/brown combo gives this outfit a western feel, which is perfect for fall. The "Manon" sweater from Line, and Jocelyn Kennedy and Chan Luu jewels finish off Mabel's look. Pairing unexpected colors together is a great way to have fun with your wardrobe this fall; you don't have to revert to blacks/browns/greys, follow Mabel's lead and add some color!

Splendid - Great Fall Basics

Twisted Dye top in Bone

Color Slub Top (received in Cobble)

Very Light Jersey Tank in Sand
Here is a sampling of the items we received from Splendid. These basics are great for layering, and will be easy additions to any fall wardrobe!

James Perse!

Attention those who need to stock up on basics! Although "oldies" are great, sometimes change is good. Introducing the "Scoop Neck" tee, avaliable in Black, White, and Antelope. Can't find a tank top to wear under it? No need to worry as this newer, thicker cotton does not require layering, making your mornings that much easier to get going!

Scoop Neck Tee

Also new at Yu is the "Soft Neck V" tee, avaliable in Iron and Shadow.

This new, 100% ultra soft Cupra cotton from Japan makes this basic a standout in your wardrobe!

Samra Flats are Back!!

                                      Just in: Exciting new colors and patterns from Yosi Samra!

Pewter Muted Metallic

 Come in and check out the other new colors: Black Metallic Lace and Multi Embossed Animal!

Guess which celebs love wearing Samra Flats?!

Shown above: (Left to right) Emmy Rossum, Ashely Greene, and January Jones


Just in from Mackage is the "Anik" Taupe fall jacket. Made to fit your shape, this coat will have every fashionista looking her absolute best!!! For those of you who find it difficult mixing blacks and browns together, this jacket may be the perfect solution; taupe pairs beautifully with either colour!!!

Also new from Mackage is the "Eloise" fall jacket. This sleek and sophisticated black jacket will be sure to make a lasting impression on any crowd...most definitely a "Paige's Pick."

What do you think, is they're room in your closet for "just one more?"

Also in from Line are two new styles of knit sweaters: the "Polly" and "Preston." These cashmere sweaters are great transitional pieces to be worn in between seasons. They're lightweight, and easily layered.

Back In Stock: Plush Tights

Yes it's true, they're back: Plush fleeced-lined tights! Available in both black and gray, they come in either a footless, or full-foot variety. These tights will keep you super warm and cozy...essential for ALL the fall and winter days to come!!!


Vince Does It Again...

Just when you think they couldn't possibly come up with anything else, they go ahead and prove you wrong! Vince has another winner on their hands with this season's "Cacoon" sweater in Natural. I LOVE this sweater...the style, colour, texture...everything is just perfection. My favourite part of the sweater though is the back, TO-DIE!!!

Pop of Colour From Soft Joie

Sella Top

Soft Joie, a casual division of customer favourite Joie, is known for their casual tops; the "Sella" top in Parchment/Lava is no exception. This tee would be fantastic right now paired with denim cut-offs, but would be equally great in the fall thrown under a chunky, brown sweater for a pop of much need colour...double duty, how practical!!!

More Joie...

We have many favourite lines here at Yu, and Joie is definitely one of them!!!

Hurry in...sizes are going FAST!!!


Ladies, This Is How It's Done...

As we mentioned in an earlier blog, fur is/will be a HUGE trend moving forward into the Fall/Winter season. We had suggested a few ways in which you could interpret the trend, and incorporate it into your everyday wardrobe. The following is an example of how Claire, one of our "honorary" Yu girls, has decided to wear her DOMA vest:

How are you planning on wearing your vest???

Paige's Pick: "Henley Floral Burnout"

I chose the "Henley Floral Burnout" long sleeve top by Free People as the shirt I would like to showcase in 3 different looks for 3 different seasons. The top is a great piece to add to your closet for 3 reasons: it's basic, yet noticeably different, modern with a vintage feel, and finally, because it's both elegant and fun! 

For those who like a very clean and feminine look, this choice of outfit is for you! The Burnout top is paired with James Jeans and Jocelyn Kennedy necklaces, which gives any backyard BBQ pop of color!

For all of those who like a cool and sophisticated look, this outfit is ideal for you and perfect for the fall. The "Henley Floral Burnout" is paired with this beige Doma leather jacket, some Jocelyn Kennedy necklaces, and ripped 7FAM  giving this outfit the edge it needs to compete with all the changing colors of the season!

Calling all fashionistas to Yu Fashion! This outfit is styled for all of you who love to stay warm, but look fabulousy glamorous at the same time. The Burnout long sleeve is paired with Doma's fur vest, along with a silk cashmere Chan Luu scarf, and Rich & Skinny "Legacy" jeans. Adding to the look are the newest additions to the store: Manitobah Mukluks. This look means 2 things: Guaranteed warmth, guaranteed style.

*Lola, we have Paige's Pick saved for you...
*Claire, would you do Paige's winter look?

What's Mabel Wearing???

Going back to school and need something to keep you warm, comfortable, and fashionable? Try pairing our new, long, and fitted Free People "Rolla Coasta Sweater," with a silk cashmere Chan Luu scarf. Finish off this understated fashionista look by adding a Karyn Chopik multicolored long necklace to make your back to school blues disappear!

Introducing...Manitobah Mukluks

Manitobah Mukluks is an Aboriginal owned company manufacturing various mukluks and moccasins. What's special about this brand is that they are made in Canada. The entire footbed of the mukluks is wrapped in 100% sheepskin, and genuine fur trim. Another great feature of the boot is the sole. It has a great grip, making it great for our slippery winters, and the thickness of the sole keeps your feet above the snow. We aren't the only fans of Mukluks, Kate Moss has been seen wearing her Mukluks all over Britian.


Maison Scotch

Maison Scotch, based in Amsterdam, specializes in casual clothing with a preppy twist. My favorite item from this shipment is the "Silky Polka Dot Top." Dots are HUGE for fall, and every fashionista needs this top! I love the idea of red and polka dots together, so I will definitely be experimenting with that look for fall!
