What's Mabel Wearing???

The minute our new Rebecca Minkoff bags came in, Mabel nearly toppled over with excitement! She definitely couldn't wait to throw one of the fabulous totes over her shoulder!!! Her favorite of the bags, and the one she absolutely had to own is the "Box Weave Bonnie Satchel" in Periwinkle. She's obsessed with the color, and claims it will be the perfect accessory to her never ending spring wardrobe. With her new bag in tow, Mabel has on Maison Scotch's "Summer Knit Jumper" in Red Multicolor, Chan Luu's navy blue leopard print scarf, and a horn necklace by Jocelyn Kennedy. She looks super cute, and ready to take on a day of "light" shopping and cupcake tasting on Whyte Avenue.

So, now that the Easter goodies have been set aside for the kidlets, how about an Easter treat for yourself?!? Our latest slew of Rebecca Minkoff handbags have us all swooning, they're so fabulous! As always, it's incredibly difficult to choose just one, so we've narrowed it down to two! How's that for compromise?!?

Happy Easter, indeed!!!

HeartLoom Goes Boho

Although I adore all things glam, I also love anything boho...whether or not I do it myself, is another matter entirely :) That said, I'm completely obsessed with our latest HeartLoom, love, love EVERYTHING!!!

"Kaya Top" in Buff

"Nyla Top" in Coral and "Patty Top" in Ivory

All these tops work beautifully with denim shorts and flip flops come summer, BUT for the most mileage, I suggest throwing a fur vest/jacket on over top, with faded skinnies, and ankle boots. LOVE.

Ella Moss

Floral prints are synonymous with summer, maybe because it brings to mind sunshine and all things pretty. Our latest delivery from Ella Moss has some of the prettiest pieces yet...

"Citrus Floral Tank" in Multi

I love the "Citrus Floral Tank" in Multi...SO delicate and feminine. Not only do I adore the fresh colour combination, but the silhouette is also extremely flattering.

"Citrus Floral Hi-Lo Maxi Dress" in Black

How fabulous is the "Citrus Floral Hi-Lo Maxi Dress" in Black??? The soft print set against such a dark backdrop creates MAJOR drama, which you all know I love. All it needs now to complete the look is a denim jacket, fringe booties, and loads and loads of jewels. FAB.

Hurry in for a closer look!!!

Soft Joie

Whenever we receive stock from Joie, we know that goodies from Soft Joie are soon to follow. Although this particular grouping is small in quantity, it isn't so in style...

"Ira Tank" received in Caviar

"Ambry Top" in Porcelain

I love the "Ambry Top" in Porcelain...casual elegance at it's best!!! Couldn't you just picture it with denim shorts, ankle booties, and a Chan Luu scarf? SO perfect for the Farmer's Market!


Joie: We Heart "Maddie"

"Maddie Top" in Dark Navy

Joie's "Maddie Top" has developed quite the cult following, becoming a wardrobe staple for many of our resident fashionistas. This linen tee straddles that fine line between "dressy" and weekend casual. Layered under a structured jacket with skinnies and boots, it provides the chic backdrop for a fabulous necklace or two, BUT worn with a pair of beaten up shorts, or extra comfy boyfriend jeans, it now becomes that perfect "bumming" around Sunday outfit. Seriously, what's not to love?!?

* "Maddie" top available in Dark Navy (striped), Pale Lemon (above left), Cloud Blue (above right), and Porcelain.


Joie: Silky Update

I was SO excited over the "Fanny" tops yesterday, I forgot to mention all the other goodies we received. In addition to their lace, Joie is also known for producing some fabulous "silkies," another BIG love of mine.

"Walton Tank" in Caviar/Dusty Pink

"Finnegan Top" in Pale Lemon

"Averlia Top" received in Porcelain

"Rancher Top" in Hot Coral

Whether worn on their own with your favourite pair of shorts, or layered under an amazing jacket or cardigan, these pieces will last you loooooooong after the summer months have ended...not that we're even thinking that!!!

The "Joie" Of Lace

Soooooooooo, we just received a shipment of Joie, which is already exciting enough on its own, but add in the "Fanny" top, and it's an all out party!!! You ALL know how I feel about lace; it's only my most favourite thing in the world. Seriously!!!

"Fanny Top" in Julep

"Fanny Top" in Hot Coral

Needless to say, these are BOTH coming home with me :)

Maison Scotch

WARNING!!! We just received yet ANOTHER shipment from Maison Scotch!!!! It must seem like we can't get enough of this fabulous brand, and to be honest with you, we really can't! Our favorite of the bunch are the "Bohemian Fancy Lace Top"  in Antique White and the "Silky Skirt with Vintage Inspired Print" in Blue Multi. Both are super cute, and have gotten us in the mood for spring!

"Bohemian Fancy Lace Top" in Antique White and "Silky Skirt w/ Vintage Inspired Print" in Blue Multi

Not only are these two pieces fab worn together, but apart, they're just as great. Envision the lace top with denim shorts and cowboy boots, and the skirt with a chambray shirt and ankle booties...cute, right?!? Love, love, love them both!!!


Nation Ltd.

What perfect timing?! We just unpacked a shipment of Nation Ltd. full of the absolute BEST, travel essentials. Whether you're headed somewhere warm, or plan on hitting the ski slopes during Spring Break, there's something in this delivery for everybody and everything!!!

"Chinatown Tank" in White

"Idaho Tee" received in White and Caribbean Blue

Stop by soon for a closer look at the entire collection, you will NOT be disappointed!!!

Parker Party!!!

I'm so ALL OVER our latest delivery of Parker: the "Rae Sequin Top" in Linen and "Allegra Dress" in Sand. Both pieces are drop dead gorgeous!!! Imagine the "Rae Sequin Top" with a pretty lace bra, leather leggings, and towering platforms...wouldn't that be a fab date outfit? Or, if you have a wedding on the roster, what about the "Allegra Dress" with a pair of metallic, strappy sandals? Very "Great Gatsby," don't you think?!?

Paige's Pick

Between today's beautiful weather, and the spring/summer season ahead, I thought I'd do a quick "Paige's Pick" on an outfit I think will be perfect for this time of year. I started off with Lauren Moshi's "Hippie Lips Tess Tee" in Pearl, and added 7FAM's "Slim Cigarette" pants in Peony. To top it off, I chose 7FAM's "Denim Jacket With Pearl Embellishment" in Light Destroyed and a long Chan Luu necklace. For footwear, I chose mine and everyone else's current obsession, Ash's "Jezabel" booties in Taupe. To further summer-ize this look, I recommend a pair of white or black denim shorts. On a hot day, swap out the jean jacket for a large and festive arm party!!!


Britt's Must Have!!!

Yes, it's that time again already, I want something else!!! Were you expecting any different?
We received a bunch of Wildfox pieces this week, and I'm sad to say I pretty much love them all (yet again)!!! My favorite of the newbies, and the one I simply "must have" is the "I'd Rather Be Shopping" sweatshirt. I love this sweater firstly because it pretty much sums up my life as there is absolutely nothing I enjoy more than shopping. Secondly, if you know anything about me, you'd know that I am a huge sucker for Wildfox, and their "Baggy Beach Jumpers" in particular; I wear one at least once a week! I love how unbelievably soft and comfortable they are, not to mention their versatility. If I'm feeling super casual, I'll throw one on with jeans and a scarf, but if I'm in a fancier mood, I'd wear the same outfit but with a TON of jewelry. I really can't think of a reason NOT to get one, so please excuse me while I make a little purchase...

"I'd Rather Be Shopping Baggy Beach Jumper" in Cher


What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Lauren Moshi's "Victoria Silk Scarf," and now that it's FINALLY here, shes wasted absolutely no time at all in grabbing one to wear. In addition to her AMAZING scarf, Mabel has on Rebecca Taylor's "Metallic Tweed Blazer" in Pearl Grey, Splendid's "Vintage Whisper Tank" in White, and necklaces by Jocelyn Kennedy and Love Heals. Her outfit is the perfect combination of sophistication and edge! We can definitely see her wearing this on a casual shopping trip with the girls, or for a light lunch and gossip session at a cute little cafe.


Lauren Moshi

Look what we got in?!? More Lauren Moshi...yay!!! These graphic tees are the BEST! They look great with anything and everything: jeans, shorts, leather...

"Hippie Lips Tess Tee" in Pearl and "Peace Diamond Ginger Tee" in Pink

"Hippie Lips Frankie Tee" in Pink and "Love Potion Mona Top" in Heather Grey

Pair any of these with a cropped military jacket, skinny jeans, boots, and at least one statement necklace for the perfect weekend outfit!

Ella Moss: Colourful Gypsy

"Sunstream Maxi Dress" in Multi

Now, for all the bohemian princesses out there...this dress is to die for, a definite MUST!!! I love the multi-colour chevron print; it's bohemian, but elevated somehow. I see this with a cropped denim jacket, gladiator sandals, and tons and tons of gold and wooden bangles. I'm officially OBSESSED, officially!!!

Ella Moss: Neutral Goddess

You can always count on Ella Moss to do a great maxi dress, they haven't disappointed us yet! Their "Zadie Maxi Dress" in Black is perfect for those of you who still think colour is a foreign concept :) Maybe a turquoise necklace, or bracelet with this dress seems more palatable?!? Also, an added bonus...this dress is absolutely bra friendly, which is always a good thing!!!

Wildfox Cont'd...

"Need Ride To The Mall Baggy Beach Jumper" in Chill Pill

We all love Wildfox for their "Baggy Beach Jumpers." There are few things in this world more comfortable...soooooooooo we just HAD to do them in an array of graphics including the "Need Ride To The Mall" (pictured above) sweatshirt in Chill Pill. These are the most cozy sweaters to hang out in, you'll never want to take them off!!!

 Also, we're used to seeing these BBJs with a crew neckline, but for all of you who favour the openness of a  "V," they now come in that style as well...hooray!!! The following are some examples of this newer, sexier look...

As always, these gems never seem to last very long, so for the greatest selection, stop by soon!!!

Wildfox: White Label

If you're in need of a little cheering up today, Wildfox has just the thing. Their "Lennon 90's Smile Sweater" in White is guaranteed to brighten your day!!! Who wouldn't smile looking at that adorable face??? With its slouchy fit, extra long sleeves, and ripped detailing throughout, this sweater definitely gives off a vintage-y, well-loved vibe. Try pairing it with a black lace brace, denim cut-offs, and fringe booties...SOOOOO boho-chic!!!

"Robyn Jacket" in Soleil

The "Robyn Jacket" in Soleil with its sun-bleached fading and perfectly placed "holes," is a fantastic update on a timeless classic. It has all the traditional details such as a fold over collar, flap chest pockets, and button tab accents at the back, but with the added edge offered by the distress marks.

Wildfox Preview...

"I Hate Mondays Destroyed Sweater" in Clean Black

So, we've finally tackled that HUGE box of Wildfox we had sitting on the floor from yesterday, and boy are there some great gems in this delivery!!! There's too many great pieces to choose from, but here's a sneak peek at one of our favourites (pictured above). With all it's "imperfections," this gently distressed sweatshirt is the perfect companion to all your favourite skinnies: denim and/or leather. Don't forget to top off this look with a statement necklace or two, a little bit of bling NEVER hurts...especially on a MONDAY!!!

Ash: Fringe, Fringe, Fringe

"Jezabel Booties" in Taupe

OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! How fabulous are these?!? I think these would be out of this world gorgeous with all your favourite skinnies and graphic tees, but how amazing would they be with a flirty summer dress and denim jacket? To die for, I know!!!

Ash: Bowie Wedges

Good news for those of you who purchased Ash's "Bowie Wedge Sneakers" last season, and for those of you who may have missed the boat last go around...they're back!!! This time composed of calf suede and canvas, they're available in either Clay or Indigo...perfect for all the "Jogging/Pajama" pants so readily available now, or with your favourite skinnies, and/or shorts. Also, if you're planning on doing any traveling in the near future, these are an absolute must, a definite no-brainer!

"Bowie Wedge Sneakers" in Clay

"Bowie Wedge Sneakers" in Indigo

Clearly, these are still quite the hot commodity as they seem to be THE footwear of choice among the Hollywood set...

No surprise here, I LOVE them all, but if I had to choose, the "Wheat Slouchy Tee" would be my favourite. I love the soft V-Neck and drapey cut...perfect topper to all your favourite skinnies, denim or otherwise!

Sundry U.S.A.

Sundry U.S.A. founded by Matthieu LeBlan is a lifestyle brand focused primarily on an "attitude that embraces diversity and non-conformity." Though French born, LeBlan was soon beckoned by the ocean and surf culture of sunny California, and soon found himself relocating there. Matthieu lives by the motto that "these are clothes to live, travel, laugh, and love (in)." They're for "free-thinkers whose level of taste fuses high and low culture,...a balance between the city's impulsive pace, and the out door's rich and fluid surroundings." Pretty cool!!!

"Light Terry Sweatshirt" received in Royal And White

If you're a fan of Wildfox, you're gonna love Sundry!!!
