Look Of The Day: Victoria Edition

Looks like the Victoria sunshine agrees with Claire, our resident fashionista!!! Here she is looking fabulous in all her spring finery: Doma's "Washed Lamb Leather Moto Jacket" in Electric Blue, Splendid's "Chambray Shirt" in Indigo, AG's "Legging Ankle" in Basket Weave Grey, and her most recent addition, Chan Luu's "Ombre" scarf in Cinder/Yellow. 

Enjoy the beautiful weather Claire!!!

Chan Luu: Scarves

"Nude Cashmere Tie-Dyed Scarf"
"Green Sheen Cashmere Tie-Dyed Scarf"

You ALL know how much we love our Chan Luu scarves around here, so imagine our excitement when we received a box FULL of them late last week...received were old favourites and new gems!!! Stop by for closer look, you will NOT be disappointed!


Splendid: Stripes, Stripes, and More Stripes

"Cabana Stripe Dress" in Parfait

Lucky to be jetting of somewhere sunny and warm? Hawaii, perhaps?!? Splendid's "Cabana Stripe Dress" in Parfait may be a "must have." With its combo of "happy" colours coupled with a hi-lo hemline, this dress practically SCREAMS holiday!!!

Ella Moss: Playful Black and White

If you're a fan of the Black and White trend, you're gonna LOVE Ella Moss' "Lila Sleeveless Maxi " in Black. With a rayon top and geometric stripe bottom, this dress will be a great option for summer!

7FAM: New Body

"Slim Chino" in Coated Black

We're loving 7FAM's latest body, the "Slim Chino" in Coated Black, a feminine take on what is traditionally a masculine pant. With a slightly slouchy fit that hits just above the ankle, these pants work beautifully with a platform pump and/or bootie. LOVE these!!!

Ombre Love

"Ombre Skinny Jeans" in Grey/White

How fabulous are these "Skinny Ombre Jeans" by Vince?!? Available in Grey/White, these are unbelievably comfortable, and will be a great addition to any fashionista's wardrobe. For an "uptown" look, pair these jeans with a beaded silk tank and sky high pumps; for something a little more "downtown," try a graphic tee, denim jacket, and wedge sneakers.

Britt's Must Have!!!

"Denim Macrame Vest" in Moody Blue

Back Detail

 We just received this fabulous "Denim Macrame Vest" from Free People, and already I MUST HAVE IT! Yes girls, it's that cute!!! I've been slightly obsessed with denim lately, and have been looking for the perfect denim vest, so the minute this beauty came through our doors, it was love at first sight!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how a-typical this vest is with the crocheted back! I also love how the front is quite distressed, and grungy in comparison to the back; it's the PERFECT contrast!
This vest is also incredibly versatile. I can see it worn over a summer dress, a chunky knit sweater, or a flowy boho blouse. Those are just a few ideas, but honestly, I think it will work with a million different things! Here's an example of how I would personally wear this fabulous vest.

Can you see why I'm in love?

What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel looks ready to explore a marketplace in Athens, or saunter along the exotic beaches of Santorini in the outfit she's wearing today. She has on Maison Scotch's "Long Drapey Skirt" in Coral/Multi, Sundry's "Cotton Voile" top, and Splendid's "Swingy Tank," both in White. For accessories, Mabel has on a tie dye Chan Luu scarf, and necklaces by Chan Luu and Charlene K. The colors and prints in Mabel's outfit work great together, and are perfect for the hot, summer sun.

With a fabulous pair of gladiator sandals, and a sketchbook under her arm, Mabel would fit right in with the Mediterranean landscape; however, we think she ALSO looks pretty darn good basking in the sunlight outside our store!

Velvet: Dresses

Blue, blue, and more blue! Just in from Velvet are two, yes, you guessed it, BLUE dresses! We received the "Zara" in Blueberry and "Drea" in Jellybean. The former dress is our favorite; with the perfect amount of blousing, and a nice drapy bottom, this dress is incredibly flattering! If you're looking for a casual "throw on" piece to wear with flip flops, then the "Drea" dress is definitely for you!!!

Along with a "basics" replenishment from Velvet, one of our favourite lines, we also received some specialty pieces: the "Tory" in Indigo and "Stella" in Multi. We're obsessed with the neon leopard print on the latter...imagine pairing this hot number with leather leggings...I hear the whistles already! In addition to these, we also received some great tops for everyday wear: the "Vienna" short sleeved tee in Cayman and "Lara" long sleeved tee in Nautical.

Wildfox: BBJs!!!

Wildfox "Baggy Beach Jumpers"...they're a GOOD thing!!! Just in are a slew of current "must haves," good luck deciding :)

"Black Doggie BBJ" in Clean White

"My Roommate BBJ" in Clean Black

"Destroyed Prism Heart" in Tan Line
Which one is YOUR favourite?!?


Wildfox: White Label

"Brigette's Heart Sequin Sweater" in Bleached Aqua
How adorable is Wildfox's "Brigette's Heart Sequin Sweater" in Bleached Aqua??? I'm loving the look of this top with bleached out denim shorts...very light and airy! Also, for all us magpies, the subtle sheen of the sequin heart isn't half bad either...lol!!!

AG: Specialty

We can't get enough colored and printed jeans!!! New from AG are the "Legging Ankle" in Pigment Flamingo and Basket Weave Grey. Funky prints and bright colors are still the rage this season, are you daring enough to try???

Can you see yourself rocking these jeans this summer???

AG: Basics

More IS more! We just received another shipment of basic AG jeans for summer...hooray!!! The denim we received are in a lighter, stretchier material promising to be some of your future favorites! Our picks are the "Prima" in 4 Years Cobalt and "Legging Ankle" in 18 Years Dust.

"Slim Cigarette" in Light Blue Destroyed

We love 7FAM's "Slim Cigarette" jeans! Although they fit fairly slim through the hip and thigh, they are definitely NOT a legging jean; made with a shorter inseam for a tidier look, these jeans look great with flip flops, flats, heels, and boots! Also, the bleached out look of these coupled with the strategically placed "holes," make them ideal for summer...all you need now to complete the look is a fitted tank, Chan Luu scarf, and oversized sunnies!!

Vince: Casual Goodies

We believe you can NEVER have too many sweaters, especially with the kind of "up and down" weather we've been experiencing of late. Vince's latest crop of cozy gems just arrived, and you will NOT be disappointed...

"Wide V-Neck Sweater" in Sapphire

 This "Wide V-Neck Sweater" in Sapphire is the quintessential "throw and go" top. Made of a lightweight, slub knit cotton, this top will keep you feeling warm but never overheated!

"Banded Colorblock Sweater" in Heather Grey/Canary

I'm loving the colour combination of the "Banded Colorblock Sweater" in Heather Grey and Canary! The boldness of the yellow trim really livens up this boatneck, drop shouldered knit...perfect worn with a lighter washed denim.

*Also received is the "Ribbed Shoulder Top" in Heather Cloud.

Rebecca Taylor: Vest

"Denim Vest" in Blue

We're SO loving Rebecca Taylor's "Denim Vest" in Blue, loving it!!! What sets this vest apart from the rest is the updated "Moto" influence; the epaulets and exposed zipper detailing gives it an added element of "cool." As with all vests, it would look fabulous over a graphic tee and jeans, but how amazing would it be over a silky dress?!!


"Leo Tee" in Neutral

Need a fun, BOLD top to pair with your favourite skinnies? Rebecca Taylor's "Leo Tee" in Neutral may be that top!!! Its strong graphic combined with the easy feel of a jersey tee makes for a winning combination...try it with a distressed pair of shorts, and gladiator sandals for an edgy weekend look.

Did You Know?!...

" (Turquoise) Moroccan Beaded Bracelets"
Did you know that turquoise, summer's favourite stone, DOESN'T just come in blue?!? Jocelyn Kennedy's latest crop of "Moroccan Beaded Bracelets" are now available in yellow, orange, and green turquoise! Wear them on their own, or in combination with your other bracelets.


Oh Catherine, How We've Miss You...

"Cushion Cut Collete" Necklace in Shade

It feels like ages ago since we've done a blog on Catherine Popesco...how can that be?!? We'll have to remedy that post haste!!! As always, her beautiful, vintage inspired pieces are THE perfect accessories for any and all occasions, whether they be in the form of earrings, bracelets,and/or my personal favourite, the "Cushion Cut Collete" necklace (pictured above). Always a hit in the classic "Shade," this time around we also received it in Midnight Blue, Pacific Opal, and Teal.


What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel is channeling her inner Nicole Richie with her look this week. She's wearing Winter Kate's chic "Luna Jacket" in Skye over Velvet's "Petra" maxi, a simple grey dress. For accessories, Mabels decided on Rebecca Minkoff's "Mab Tote" in Almond, and an assortment of House of Harlow and Claudia necklaces, just as Ms. Richie would do! We love the boho vibe this outfit brings, and think it's the perfect combination of casual and chic. We could definitely see Mabel sipping lattes on an outside patio in L.A. while flipping through a glamorous magazine! All her look needs now is a large, floppy sun hat, and a pair of oversized sunnies!!!

Who wore it better...Mabel or Nicole?!?

Paige's Pick: Favorite Denim

It shouldn't come as a surprise to any of you when I say I'm a casual person; jeans and tees are my constant  "go-tos." So, surprise, surprise...I'm on the hunt for the perfect pair of summer jeans, and currently have it narrowed down to three pairs that I can't even begin to choose from: 7FAM's "Slim Cigarette" jeans in Light Grey, AG's "Stilt Roll Up(s)" in 14 Years Thrasher, and their "Legging Ankle" pants in Pigment Melon. I decided to put together three different outfits to sort out my dilemma; hopefully by the end of this, I will have made a decision on which pair of pants I will add to my summer wardrobe!

This first outfit was inspired by Sundry's "Raglan 3/4 Top" in Coral, one of Yu Fashion's newest acquisitions. Coral is one of my favorite colors, and it just happens to be the color of the season! I paired this top with AG's "Stilt Roll Up(s)" and Chan Luu's "Ikat Print Scarf" in Shrimp Combo. A large bag is essential for carrying all a girl's necessities, so I've added Rebecca Minkoff's "Lovers Tote" in Almond. For a finishing touch, I chose Ugg's "Elyza" flip flops in Black to keep this look simple and comfortable. Add a Chan Luu wrap bracelet and some JK arm candy to give this look some added pizazz!

This next look is one of my favorites! I started off with 7FAM's "Slim Cigarette" jeans in Light Grey, and paired them with Nation's "Chinatown Tank" in White. This top is my current basic fave; it's cut higher under the arms, so a bandeau is not necessary, not to mention its flowiness hides any extra dessert you may have decided to indulge in! I've added the AG "Harper" denim jacket in Topanga Embroidery, and Samra's  "Studded" flats in Grey. My favorite part of this outfit is definitely the bag I chose: Rebecca Minkoff's  "Moonstruck" in Almond; the cross-body style and studs are absolutely  to die for! For jewelry, I think an arm party, and a long necklace would be the perfect finishing touch to this casually cool outfit.

This final look is the perfect spring outfit! I started with AG's "Legging Ankle" pants in Pigment Melon, and paired it with 7FAM's "Denim Jacket with Pearls" in Light Destroyed. To keep the focus on the jacket and pants, I added the "Ella Top" in Beige from Parker. I chose Rebecca Minkoff's "Cupid" bag in Slate a taupe-y shade, to compliment all the light colors in the outfit. Finally, I used Samra's "Studded" flats in Taupe/Pewter to finish off the look. Don't forget to throw together an arm party, and put on your favorite silver disc earrings (Catherine Popesco would be my suggestion!), to finish off the look!

Clearly, I've grown to love ALL these pants equally, so my best, most logical solution to this dilemma is to get all three pairs of pants! Farewell RRSP...you've been spent well!

Naven: Baroque Beauty

OMG...I'm in LOVE with Naven's "Tuxedo Blazer" in Baroque! It's definitely bold, but SUCH a stunner!!! I love it styled with a denim top and shorts, sooooooooo cool!!! It would also look great as a topper to a basic white tank and leather skinnies, or over a vintage rocker tee and boyfriend jeans.

*The Baroque print is also available in the "Bardot Blouse," (bottom right.)


Splendid Fave!!!

"2 Pocket Pullover" received in Sand and Mint

Splendid's "2 Pocket Pullover" has quite the following, and why wouldn't it?!? It's super comfortable and easy to wear. I love it paired with distressed shorts (above), but think it would also be fabulous under a blazer, skinny jeans, and booties.

*Jane, this top would look amazing with your 7FAM pink/gold skinnies ;)


We just unpacked a box FULL of Splendid goodies!!! If comfortable, stylish clothing is what you're after, you must stop in for a closer look. The following are two of our early favourites:

"Swing Tank" received in White

"Tulip Skirt" in Black

How amazing is the "Tulip Skirt" in Black?!? We're loving it worn with a fitted tank, denim jacket, and booties. SO cute!!!


Wednesday, April 17, 2013


We just received a variety of fashionable basics from Sundry, one of our new favourite lines. From tanks to long-sleeved tees, we received them all! And, as a bonus, some of the pieces came in Coral, one of this season's hottest colors! Have a look below at the different styles received:

*From left clockwise: "Cotton Voile Tank," "Raglan Tee," "Raglan 3/4 Sleeve Top," and "Cotton Voile Button Down," all in Assorted Colors.
