Kiki's Current Obsession...

I think I have a problem. Unfortunately, they don't have meetings to cater to an addiction quite like mine, unless you've heard of a "Wildfox Anonymous?!" Cleaning out my closet yesterday, I discovered the extent of my addiction. It's literally a Wildfox paradise in my room, I swear I own enough to rival Bloomingdales!!! I wish I could tell you I'm going to cure myself, but that's like saying cupcakes will one day taste bad (which is impossible, right?!), but I'm sure all you Yu customers can relate; we all have that one brand we can't break up with. I seriously hate how much I love Wildfox. What's your "hate to love" brand???
My favourite Wildfox pieces are always the sweaters. They're SO comfy...perfect for bundling up in. A classic, yet surprisingly recent addition to my collection, was the "Lennon Sweater." From lounging in my house to going shopping, I wear it everyday. The knit is amazing: luxurious and cozy, yet light weight. You'll never look drab in a Lennon either, the prints are always so funky and playful. They add a much needed spark to any dull day; they're definitely my happy sweaters!
So, this week I chose the "Lennon Sweater" in All Over Love!!! It honestly feels like you're wrapped in your favourite blanket, and there's nothing I love more! I absolutely ADORE the heart print. It's slightly cartoon-esque, yet with a grown up flair, and how could you not love a sweater covered in pink hearts??! I always wear mine with leggings, the ultimate comfort outfit.
I'm obviously not alone in my obsessions...celebrities all over are sporting their "Lennon Sweaters!" If anyone catches wind of "Wildfox Anonymous," sign me up ASAP!!!

AG Jeans Part One: To-Die for Damask

Christmas came early here at Yu, we just unpacked SO many gorgeous jeans from AG...soooo many that we needed two blogs!!! The first post is dedicated to damask, one of our favourite prints!!!
Though both these jeans share a common print, they are each extremely unique. The "Legging" in Damask Black has an extra hint of luxury with a dark grey damask layered over top classic black skinnies. Subtle yet defined, this print has a slight sheen to it, giving these jeans a metallic looking finish. Definitely glam and perfectly fabulous, these will be stunning for the holiday season!

The "Legging" in Damask Black
The "Sateen Legging" in Damask Dark Charcoal is a little more casual, with a black pattern on charcoal background. These are extremely soft and velvety to the touch! The black damask is a stand out, but still easy to wear!!! They're super versatile as you can dress them down with a simple white tee, or dress them up with a silk blouse. However you wear them, these will definitely turn heads!!!

Come in and see what all the fuss is about! You'll be dying for some damask, just like we are!!!

AG Jeans Part Two: Stunning Sateen!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any's time for part two!!! We absolutely LOVE these "Sateen Leggings," which we received in Super Black, Periscope, and Garnet. The brushed twill, that feels just like velvet, definitely amps up the glam factor!!! These have a slim fit, but with the comfort factor that only AG can deliver. These are definite must-haves for your winter wardrobe!!!
The Super Black is a refreshing update on a classic black skinny; the velvety feel gives these jeans a touch of luxury, which is ALWAYS a good thing!

Periscope (bottom left) and Garnet (bottom right) are gorgeous muted jewel tones, perfect for the holiday season!!! The combo of the velvety material and deep colours in these jeans is super luxurious...wearing them will make you feel like a million bucks!!! Promise.

And there you have it, our holiday haul of AGs!!! Now comes the hard part...decision time!!!Which pair do you HAVE to have?! Although, we're not saying you can't have them all! ;)

7FAM: Classic With A Twist

"Moto Denim Jacket" in Black Lacquer

We're sooooo loving 7FAM's "Moto Denim Jacket" in Black Lacquer. It's their classic cut jacket but foil treated to look and feel like leather...FAB!!! Pair it with a graphic tee, dark skinnies, and biker boots for an edgy look, OR with a silky tank and platform pumps for a dressier option.

Vince: Resort

I can't believe it...winters just begun, and now we're receiving Resort already!!! Well, if nothing else, these pieces from Vince just might be convincing enough for you to book that last minute trip down south...not that any of us would need that much convincing!!!

I love both the "Slit Side Stripe" sweater in Parchment/Geranium and the "Vintage Twill Boyfriend Trousers" in Lipstick. I love the fact that they pair so easily together, but can easily be worn with other pieces from your wardrobe.

However great these "new" items are, we can't forget about the basics, and we ALL know that Vince does some of the best around. The following are some of my favourites:

"Shirt Tail Little Boy Tee" in Heather Grey

"Raglan Tee" in White

*Debbi, your favourite little tee is tucked away safe and sound :)

Stripes by Splendid and Ella Moss

 Stripes get an update from both Splendid and Ella Moss for the holidays!!!
The "Platinum Rugby Stripe Top" by Splendid is the perfect mix of glitz and casual. Shimmery thread runs throughout the whole tee, taking it to the next level! It's a perfect everyday top with a sparkly finishing touch.
Platinum Rugby Stripe Top in Champagne/Black

Ella Moss presents your perfect casual holiday dress, the "Astoria!" With a thin, sparkly gold stripe layered with the champagne and black, it has just the right amount of sparkle and shine. Paired with an extremely flattering fit and a hi-lo hem, this dress is definitely a stunner. It would be just right for a holiday lunch!!!
Astoria Dress in Black


Kain Label: Everyday Luxe

There is nothing we love more than introducing a new line, and we couldn't be more excited to welcome Kain Label to the Yu family!!! Founded by sisters, Amanda and Melanie Kain, in 2008, Kain Label is all about simple luxury. Their goal was to create a tee that would be much more than just a tee-shirt, one that would be "just as soft, and beloved as your most treasured vintage tee." Kain Label "evokes nostalgia," even though the clothing is new. The motto of "effortless and relaxed sophistication" definitely comes accross through their tees.
Kain uses a luxe combo of modal and silk to create the buttery soft feel of their shirts. You'll fall in love quicker than you knew you could, these tees are AH-MAZING!!! We received the "Classic Pocket Tee" and "Classic Tank" in both Heather Grey and Black.

Ahhh, more great basics!!!

What's Mabel Wearing???

As soon as we got the Rebecca Minkoff "Becky" blazer in, Mabel knew she had to have it! She played up her edgy side and paired the blazer with a Lauren Moshi "Frankie" tee. However, Mabel being the fashionista that she is, needed to pile on the bling! She stuck to her glamorous, cool style and added pieces from Catherine Popesco and House of Harlow, but Mabel didn't stop there, she went and layered on some chunky, rocker-chic silver chains from Claudia Accessories as well! They added the perfect amount of edge and glitz to the outfit, a perfect finishing touch!!! Wear this with black skinnies and sky high platforms for a sleek finish to the ensemble!


Mabel is totally ready for a day of shopping in NYC with her girls, and with this outfit she wouldn't just fit into one of the style capitals of the world, she would totally stand out!!

Introducing...291 Venice

     Meet our newest brand: 291 Venice, a collection of unique tees by husband and wife duo, Simon Cohen and Christina Apostolidou! The couple, who "share a love of nature and a bohemian approach to travel and leisure," launched 291 Venice in Spring 2008, a collection inspired by the hip, free-spirited culture of the brand's namesake town. Being a couple who loves to travel, they designed the line with the stylish jet-setter in mind... one full of "global sophistication." While staying true to the beachy vibes of Venice, CA, they also pull inspiration from their travels...rustic destinations add playful individuality, while glamorous cities spark the edgy feel of these tees. The creativity behind this line is found in their funky vintage-inspired graphics and casual, yet stylish feel. The brand emulates the "modern day bohemian nomad" with a "sexy and carefree" look with an "edge of sophistication."

     If you're a fan of Lauren Moshi, you'll definitely love this line! Like the couple claims, these tees are every day style meets "global inspiration," and definitely unique in every aspect! You will fall in love with their artistic flair and casual comfort.

What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel is having "one of those days"- you know, the one where all you want to do is snap your fingers and your hair and make up would be done, and an outfit would magically appear ready to be thrown on? Since Mabel and all of us know that this doesn't really happen...ever, shes decided to use her fashion skills super efficiently to put together an outfit that doesn't require a lot of work, but still looks amazing on. Mabel is wearing the Joie "Hilano" sweater in Dark Heather, with a Chan Luu scarf in Soft Floral. To finish off the look, she added a Charlene K necklace. I love how the sweater has a lace lining around the bottom making for a very interesting detail. The Chan Luu scarf with its subtle floral pattern ties in the femininity of the lace trim. This outfit would go perfectly with dark skinny jeans, brown boots, and a leather jacket.

Well done Mabel, you used your fashion skills well!

Kiki's Current Obsession...

     I am probably the only Yu girl who barely wears jewelry, and isn't a fan of the "bigger the better" and "more is more" mottos. I love admiring all our sparkly baubles, but the minute I try it on, everything I loved about it, I now don't like. Because of this, I stick to the simpler more delicate pieces that most people overlook...I'm so misunderstood (haha). However, I still dream about wearing the "in-your-face" pieces, and wish they could combine the funky elements with the dainty sizes I love, and just when I thought I could never find a perfectly balanced bracelet...
     ...we brought in Ellie Phont! They took every aspect of the chunky jewelry that I am a theoretical fan of, and downsized it to cute Kiki-sized bracelets. I absolutely LOVE them! They are so tiny and adorable, but still unique and playful. I finally found the balanced bracelets I've been dreaming of! Even all of you crazies who pile on the jewels will love these...they will fit right into any of your arm parties, or in my case, "arm gatherings."

    These are my 3 favourites!! Sooo cute, fun, original, and did I mention cute?! Of course, you are welcome to invite as many bracelets as you'd like to your arm party, but my bracelet clique is rather exclusive. I love the pops of colour from both the Buddha and skull beads, and the shimmery baubles are so pretty! These are actually the bracelets of my dreams.

Finally, my search ends...

Mid-Rise Jeans!

Another "tried and true" pair of 7FAMs are here! This time, the classic Roxanne fit is updated with a mid-rise! For everyone not yet sold on the lower rises, these jeans are for you. The "Mid-Rise Roxanne" in Red Cast Clean is the perfect compromise between a high waisted and regular rise jean,  while maintaining the slim fit we all know and love. In a flattering dark wash, these jeans are going to become a staple in your closet!!!

Rebecca Taylor

This" Crepe and Lace Top" by Rebecca Taylor is SUCH a stunnner! It has a beautiful flowy peplum paired with lace shoulders to play up the flirty, feminine feel; however, it's not overly sweet, as it's balanced with just a hint of edge in an exposed back zipper. Who would have thought lace, zippers and peplum could play so well together?!?

This top is perfect for a girl's night out. Try pairing it with skinnies in a deep shade of wine and dangly Catherine Popesco earrings, then whip your hair up in a neat ballerina bun and take on the town!!!

Joie: Dressy

Along with the casuals, we also received some amazing silks! It's classic Joie with flowy tops in stunning colours, and a dressy pair of silk pants. In my opinion, you can never have enough silk!
"Lambert Pant" in Caviar
"Ranya Top" in Blue

"Malki Top" (received in Sapphire)

I love both the silk tops, but the print of the "Malki Top" totally steals the show! The top is covered in tiny starbursts in a gorgeous pairing of jewel tones, which make it a definite must-have! The picture just doesn't do it justice, come in and see for yourself!

Joie: Casual

Looking for luxury in a simple tee? Joie has just what you're looking for! They flawlessly mix everyday basics with a luxe feel, creating THE perfect wear-with-everything tee!
"Rancher D Top" in Blue 

"Vanilla Stripe" in Porcelain/Blue
We also received the "Allen Top" in Porcelain and "Swift Top" in Heather Charcoal, so if you're looking to stock up on your "not so basic" basics, Joie has you covered!!!

A couple of our favorite AGs are back! We received AG's "11 Year Repair Legging" (pictured below), as well as the "Prima," mid rise cigarette jeans in Super Black. The first is perfect for a graphic tee, leather jacket, and booties. The "Prima" would be great for dressing up, if you're looking for a warmer alternative to a dress for an evening event. Both these jeans are an ideal fit; they hug your curves in all the right places!!!

Hurry in before they disappear!!!

Any "Ski Bunnies" Out There?!?

If you're a lover of winter sports OR just love staying warm and toasty, Ugg's "Fontanne Mittens" in Black are an absolute must!!! Made of a water resistant fabric, these insulated mitts with leather palm patch detail and Ugg Australia studs are perfect for the ski hill or endless days spent at the ice rink!


What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel is "Shining Bright Like A Diamond" this week, as Rihanna would say. She has on Ella Moss' sequin "Cleo" blazer in Black, Wild Fox's "Ms. Monroe Tee" in Ceramic, and has added to her look Rebecca Minkoff's "Mini Mac" in Neon Pink and bling from both Claudia and Catherine Popesco!!! In my opinion, this outfit is the perfect combination of girly and edge. This would be amazing worn with black leather pants and either a pair of black booties or stilettos...perfect for an evening out on the town with the girls.

What girl wouldn't love this look? We think her t-shirt says it all!!!

Ella Moss

We're ALL dying over Ella Moss' "Roslyn Dress" in Rosette!!! Can you blame us? Everything about this dress is fabulous, from its bustier-like top to its high low hemline. I love the look of it paired with ankle booties...very unexpected and sooo current!
Wouldn't it be a great option for an office Christmas party? We think so!!!

House Of Harlow...Again ;)

"Talon Crystal Cuff" in Silver

OMG!!! I'm sooooooooooooooo DYING over HOH's "Talon Crystal Cuff" in Silver!!! Seriously. The talon detail typically wouldn't appeal to me at all, but add the crystal encrusted balls and you've got me this bracelet mixed in with all my other jingly jangly gems!
