Madison Marcus Goes Glam

"Twinkle Tank" and "Gatsby Top" in Eggshell

How gorgeous are these tops from Madison Marcus?!? I think that both are deserving of a spot in your fall/winter wardrobes...the "Twinkle Tank" in Eggshell is super feminine and pretty with its accordion pleats and jewelled straps, while the "Gatsby Top" is, in my opinion, the epitome of sophisticated glamour with its bugle beaded art deco design. I think this top paired with black leather pants, platform pumps, and wrists full of gold and silver bangles would be unbelievable!!! I'd want to be THAT girl at the party!!!

Kiki's Current Obsession...

     First of all...HAPPY HALLOWEEN! This has got to be my favourite holiday of the year...besides my birthday (which, yes, is a holiday). There's just something about Halloween that I absolutely love. Anyways, onto my obsession...
     I am not much of a winter sports girl...the closest I get is sliding around on the bottom of my boots when I'm walking home. Though I may not be all about skiing, I am a big fan of the "ski bunny" look! It may be a bit stereotypical, but I always imagine Nordic print thermals, fur-lined parkas, cute knit mittens, and cozy toques! Winter may bring cold and snow, but it also brings winter fashions which is right up my alley. It's just a whole bunch of comfy, cozy, "bundling up" clothes...and bundling up is just like staying in bed all day which I  also loooooove!!! So, this week I am channeling my inner ski bunny and chose as my pick, Splendid's "Breckenridge Thermal Leggings" in Snowbird, the perfect winter pants.

     How adorable and wintery are these?! I am OBSESSED with Nordic print. To me, the print just emanates the fun parts of winter, like sledding and hot chocolate. I can see myself wearing these while hitting the slopes...just kidding! I would pair them with a slouchy toque, a knit pullover (my love for knit is still going strong), my super warm down filled bomber, and of course, my winter staple...Uggs! They feel just like my pyjamas, and it can't get any better than that.

Every girl needs a pair of these!!!

Vince: Texture, Texture, Texture

I'm so in looooooooove with Vince's "Honeycomb Cardigan" in Graphite!!! I love the textured knit and oversized fit, BUT most of all, I adore the dramatic collar...

"Honeycomb Cardigan" in Graphite

I love the look of a sweater coat worn with jeans and a t-shirt, but think it would be equally fabulous over a silk dress and booties.

Love Wildfox!!!

Two new beauties just in from Wildfox! Like all Wildfox pieces, these are the perfect comfy tees, great for days when you just want to throw something on...your basics with a whimsical twist!
"Lover Long Sleeve Tee" in Rosaline
"Ms. Monroe Oversized Tee" in Ceramic White
I love the "Lover Long Sleeve Tee" in Rosaline! The simple heart print that we've seen before on their "Baggy Beach Jumpers," is super fun and cute!!! I love that they did it in a t-shirt style; I can't get enough of the silky, soft material. Forget diamonds being a girl's best friend, Wildfox is definitely MY best friend!!!



"Legging" in Black

Just in from AG are the "Legging" pants in Black; these super skinnies have a textured feel and slight sheen to them, perfect for the holiday season!!!

What's Mabel Wearing???

WOW!!! MABE'S a BABE these days! She's rockin our new Ella Moss "Sherwood Vest" and Lauren Moshi graphic tee in "Ash". Shes added to this dynamic duo TWO of our new Catherine Popesco colette style necklaces along with Rebecca Minkoff's "Wallet On A Chain" snakeskin crossbody bag in Red...the perfect combination of rocker and class. She's definitely gonna do some damage in this number!



Heartloom has stolen our hearts - again! They've just sent us two stunning holiday dresses: the "Amy Dress" in Nude and the "Britt Dress" in Sapphire, along with the fabulous "Rosa Jacket" in Sand. We believe these pieces are ALL essential "must haves" that belong in every fashionista's closet. The dresses are perfect for black tie optional events, whereas the "Rosa Jacket" is perfect for either everyday dressing, or as a fabulous cover up for an evening outfit. These go to items will come in handy, especially when you're strapped for time trying to find a new dress, or need a new way to dress up an old piece!

Maison Scotch

The holidays are coming up and that means your closet is soon to be filled with lace, sequins, and glitz...for all you YU girls though, this isn't anything new!!! Just in from Maison Scotch are three blazers that will be the perfect cover ups for a business/casual evening out, but even better worn with a pair of boyfriend jeans and your favorite tee. Have a look below at some of these stunning blazers:

"Cute Essential Gilet" in Navy

Funktional and Fabulous!!!

We've just received a BUNCH of fierce new Funktional pieces!!! They add just the right amount of funk to any closet, whatever your style!
"Silk Shoulder Crop Dress" (Black)

"Static Fold Front Top" (Static)

"Luxe Sheer Panel Top" (Azure)

And the Yu girls' favourite...the "Leather Breezy Back Top" in Black!
People are always saying "everything is not as it seems," and we LOVE when that motto applies in fashion. What may seem like a simple black tee, is actually a killer leather back top! It takes a classic and amps up the edgy vibe for a perfect combo of classic and cool. Pair it with black skinnies and sky high platforms for a rocker chic look, then layer on the glitzy necklaces for a hint of diva!

Lauren Moshi

We've just unpacked a shipment from Lauren Moshi, our favourite line of graphic tees. Each of these tops are great on their own under a leather jacket and/or blazer, BUT would be phenomenal under a textured weave, like a tweed.

"Frankie" in Love Nail and Diamond Heart

"Addison" in Wildcat Head and "Norah" in Born To Fly

"Reagan" in Love Nail and "Josie" in Aztec Birds

It's always a good thing when classic and edge meet, ALWAYS!!!


"High Waist Tailored Skinny" in Knit Like

Just in from 7FAM are the "High Waist Tailored Skinny" in Knit Like. These fashion forward skinnies with contrast gold stitching have a moderate rise and are slim through the leg...ideal for tucking into boots.

Catherine Popesco: Arm Party

It's always an exciting day when we receive Catherine Popesco!!! Back by popular demand are her "Cushion Cut Crystal" bracelets in Silver and Gold...for some reason, arm parties always seem livelier with bling don't they?!?

"Cushion Cut Crystal" Bracelet in Gold

We also received a large assortment of matte gold bangles...perfect on their own, but even better in combination...

Assorted Bangles received in Matte Gold

...finally, the piece de resistance, exclusively made for Yu Fashion: "Grand Cushion Cut Collete" necklaces in Silver and Gold. Soooooooooooo maj!!!!



Perfect Pick Me Up!!!

Really NOT enjoying our lack of sunshine as of late, but loving the fact that it's now officially sweater season, and I don't have to justify too much my purchase of Odd Molly's "Rupicola Jumper" in Dark Orange.

"Rupicola Jumper" in Dark Orange

"Rupicola Jumper" in Dark Orange (Back)

I'm totally obsessed with this sweater at the moment!!! I love the vintage-y, apres ski feel of it, and think it would be ridiculously fabulous worn over a basic tee, skinnies, slouchy boots, and an over sized scarf...Jasper, anyone?!?
*Debbi, are you ready for another sweater???

"Legging" in Glimmer

Skinny? Check. Comfy? Check. Sparkly? CHECK. AG's latest "Legging" in Glimmer is undoubtedly one of the prettiest pairs of pants we currently have in stock. With a generous dusting of silver sparkle scattered over a black backdrop, these skinnies would be fabulous paired with a silky top, and towering booties...great alternative to a LBD!

Ella Moss

If you love the luxe, bohemian feel of fall/winter dressing, than Ella Moss' "Sherwood Vest" in Black is a definite must-have!!! This faux fur trimmed vest with side pocket detailing is the perfect piece to throw over either a fitted turtleneck or graphic tee...add a pair of skinny jeans and boots, and you've got yourself an amazing outfit!

Kiki's Current Obsession...

I'm finally back!!! And of course, I have obsessions up to my eyeballs and then some!! Because it's been so long, I absolutely MUST update you on my top 5 lists. I say "lists" because I have a permanent top 5, and my ever changing top 5, which I usually include in my posts. You're in for a surprise get to see my permanent top 5, which is more like a top 1 million with all my 'ties' (this is so exciting)!!! Without further ado, here it is:

1. Peace signs and pink
2. Justin Bieber and Katy Perry
3. "Pretty Little Liars" and "The Walking Dead"
4. Painting my nails
5. Caramel!

 Now back on track to the "current obsessions"...

2. Online Shopping
3. Cadbury Creme Eggs
4. Headbands and head jewelry
5. Green
So, due to my current #1, I have chosen Free People's "Lake Tahoe Cardi"!!! First of all, it's a knit, and second of all, it's a knit. If there was ever anything made for fall/winter weather, it' guessed it...knits.

I love chunky, over sized cardigans and sweaters with a vintage feel, and it's very difficult to find a versatile, chunky knit; however, this one hits it out of the park! Actually, Free People knits in general are usually the bomb (it was hard to just choose one!). It's super cozy and can be layered without getting too bulky. Also the colour is PERFECT! It's not only a classic fall colour, but it's just my kind of colour (note how my #5 obsession is green...). As far as versatiliy goes, this is a 10/10. I can see this with my favourite Wildfox tee, jeans, and dark brown boots (with the top bit of some knit socks peeking out, I love that look), and a saggy toque!!! So, knit-lovers, feed your addiction with this cardi and more by Free People! I'm honestly in knit-heaven!

Crazy for Chan Luu!!!

The wait is over!!! Chan Luu has outdone themselves this time around, the luxe combo of sequins and knits create the perfect casual, glamour pieces for your closet.

The Sequin Racer Back in Black/Gunmetal and Shitake/Silver

The Sweater in Castle Rock/Silver and Doeskin

The Cashmere/Silk Sweater in Black and Oat
Every single one of these pieces are absolutely to die for, but "The Cashmere/Silk Sweater" definitely takes the cake for me! I wouldn't mind getting out of bed in the morning if it means putting this beauty on!!! The blend of silk and cashmere feels incredibly rich, and the Oat colour is such a gorgeous neutral. Pair it with your favourite Chan Luu scarf to amplify the luxe, and complete the look!!!

Introducing...Ellie Phont!!!

We all love a good arm party around here, and because of this, are thrilled to welcome another great brand into the Yu (bracelet) family: Ellie Phont. Designed by Ellie Mae Waters, each and every bracelet is lovingly created using precious and semi-precious gemstones with the addition of either sterling silver or gold filled beads. Worn alone, or in and amongst your other bracelets, these are a definite party invitee!!!

Don't you just love them?!?

Vince Cont'd

In addition to the "Picot Trim Silk Blouse," we also received a "Lightweight V-Neck Sweater" and "Slim Side Strapping" pants from Vince, both in Black (our other favourite colour!).

"Lightweight V-Neck Sweater" in Black

This is the quintessential Vince sweater...classic, classic, classic!!! You could never go wrong with this...either worn alone, or as a layering piece, this sweater is worth every penny. How amazing would this be worn with a fur vest, and leather skinnies???

"Slim Side Strapping" Pant in Black

We've had tons of requests lately to bring in a dress pant, and we're happy to oblige. The "Slim Side Strapping" pants with its cropped length, and narrower fit is an updated version of the classic wool trouser. These are a definite must try!
