"Slim Chino" in Coated Black

Great news for those of you who missed out on 7FAM's "Slim Chino(s)" in Coated Black the first go around, we just received another delivery...yay!!! These will disappear just as quickly as they did last time, so, if you're interested, RUN don't walk to the store =)

Look Of The Day

It was a Pinterest kinda weekend again, so you know what that means?!? LOOK. OF. THE. DAY. I love everything about this look, everything: the denim on denim, the freshness of the white, the statement necklace, and, yes, even the red! So, as always, I've managed to compile items that should aid you in the replication of this "to die for" ensemble...happy shopping!!!

The oversized, slouchy fit of this sweater practically BEGS to be tried on...the perfect topper to a basic tank and shorts outfit, all that's required now is a pair of ankle booties and a Chan Luu scarf!

Free People: Overall

"Washed Denim Overall" in Brady Wash

OMG...are you dying over Free People's "Washed Denim Overall" in Brady Wash?!? We are!!! This distressed wash skinny overall with classic 5-pocket styling has a modern, sexier feel than overalls of the past. Though it looks adorable styled with a slouchy tee and sneakers, it would be fantastic with a fitted tank and booties. SO. COOL.

Alessandra Ambrosio


Rebecca Minkoff "Newbies"

We're always thrilled to receive goodies from Rebecca Minkoff, always. Her latest delivery consisted of both tried and true favourites, as well as some exciting newbies: the "Skinny Mac Wristlet" in Black and "Laser Cut Mini Skylar" in Almond.

"Skinny Mac Wristlet" in Black

This wristlet is an updated version of Rebecca Minkoff's signature "Mac Clutch." Flatter and smaller than the original, this bag is perfect for an evening out when all you need is a credit card, cell phone, and lip gloss.

"Laser Cut Mini Skylar" in Almond

We're so loving the "Laser Cut Mini Skylar" with its laser cut floral design and polished pyramid stud detail. This "saddle" inspired cross-body bag is adorable, and would pair beautifully with a summer dress and ankle booties.

How's a girl to choose?!?


What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel's spontaneous ways never ceases to surprise us...she just purchased a first class ticket to Barcelona with her bff! Her inspiration to jet off came when she popped into YU and bought a brand new outfit she thought would be perfect for sight-seeing, hot weather, and breezy beaches! Mabel is wearing Maison Scotch's "Rock Theme Tee" in Beige and James Perse's "Knit Twill Shorts" in Alligator. For a cool finish, shes added Free People's "Heather" denim vest in Mirage. To accessorize her picture perfect travelers look, Mabel chose not one, but two turquoise necklaces by Jocelyn Kennedy as well as Brave's "Samy" cross-body bag in Sand; she's also planning on adding a fedora to complete her uber cool look

Who knew clothes could lead to such an adventure?!? Stay tuned...

Fashion Kids To Fashionistas

Britt's Must Have!!!

I've been contemplating the purchase of our "Ombre Moto" leather jacket for quite some time now. The minute it came in, I knew I had to have it...somehow, some way!!! It was really just a matter of whether or not it would be a practical option for me. Well...I've given it a lot of thought, and have come to the conclusion that YES it is most definitely the jacket for me.
What first sold me on the jacket was the fact that it was OMBRE! I am in LOVE with the ombre effect, and think it brings such a cool edge to the jacket. I've also never come across another jacket quite as exciting. I'm one of those girls who craves originality, another reason why the purchase of this jacket was a wallet never stood a chance!!!
Secondly, I LOVE the fact that this jacket has a detachable hood. I think it's such a great idea, and gives you the option of having both a casual and dressy jacket. I think it would look super cute with jeans and motorcycle boots, or black skinnies and sleek, platform stilettos. I love how you can switch the jacket around to suit different occasions; it's basically like you're paying for 1 fabulous jacket, but get 2 instead...what a steal!!!
I have already mentally purchased this jacket, now it's just a matter of swiping the card!

Paige's Pick: Leather Love

It's not possible to put on anything leather, and not feel just a little bit sexier than the moment before. Leather is so versatile, and by no means limiting, making it an option for anyone looking to try out a different look, or step out of their comfort zone. This week I did a pick based on my most current obsession: leather! I've decided to put together three outfits: three different looks for three different occasions.

I'm currently in love with the look above: so simple, yet so cool. I chose Mackage's "Havana" leather shorts in Black; their slouchiness and length are great for giving an outfit a casual look while infusing it with a little bit of edge. I kept the top simple as well, using Lily Aldridge's "Leslie" tank (deigned for Velvet) in White, and AG's "Harper" denim jacket in Topanga Embroidery. For shoes, I used Ash's "Nikita" booties in T Moro, and as accessories, chose Rebecca Minkoff's "Mab Tote" in Almond, and a Charlene K agate necklace. You can NEVER go wrong with a classic look like this!

This next look is definitely the dressiest of all the looks I've put together. I chose Mackage's "Navi" leather pants in Black and Joie's "Elvia Top" in New Moon. Parker's "Ella Top" in Off White is the tank I used to layer under the lace...definitely one of our favorite looks here at the store. To accessorize this look, I chose Ash's "Dune" booties and Brave's "Gabriella" clutch, both in Black. This would be the perfect outfit for an evening out on the town! 

My final look is by far the coolest of the bunch. I started with Doma's "Ombre Moto" jacket in Black, and paired it with Free People's "Swirl Tank" in Natural Combo. For pants, I chose AG's "Legging" denim in Gala, keeping the denim dark puts the focus on the top. For accessories, I chose a Chan Luu charm necklace and Rebecca Minkoff's "Mac Daddy" in Black. Finally, I kept the look cool and simple, adding a pair of snake skin Samra Flats. How amazing is this Doma leather???

After this blog post, I'm sure tons of you have scissors at the ready eager to get at your leather couches. Instead, try to resist, and pop into YU to satisfy your leather cravings!

What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel's in a Free People kind of mood today, so much so, that she's wearing it HEAD TO TOE!!! She has on the "Sahaying Print Skirt" in Slate Combo, their "Slub Stripe" blazer in Navy/Cream, and the "Waterfall Graphics" tank in Ivory Combo, which we are currently obsessed with! The tank is usually rather drapey, but Mabel has it tied up in a side knot, which is totally cute, and a definite MUST TRY! Along with her Free People swag, Mabel has on crystal and turquoise necklaces by JK, and the "Samy" suede pouch by Brave.

Mabel looks tribal chic in this outfit, and is definitely the perfect spokes model for FREE PEOPLE!!!

Just A Reminder...

Just a reminder to all our fabulous fashionistas that we will be CLOSED Monday, May 20, 2013 for Victoria Day.

We hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!

James Perse

We always seem to receive a James Perse delivery when we need it the most. His pieces are always SO comfy, SO easy, and SO lived-in. The following are just some of our current favourites:

"Sheer Slub Side Panel Shirt" in Sherbert

This soft, textured, 3/4 sleeve top is a perpetual favourite; it seems that we can NEVER get enough! It gives you the comfort of a tee, but the refinement of a button down...perfect with jeans, shorts, chinos, and everything in between.

"Pintucked Knit Twill" Shorts in Alligator Pigment

These "Pintucked Knit Twill" shorts in Alligator Pigment are a lounger's dream!!! Ultra comfortable with full frontal, and partial back darts as well as side slit, and back square pocket detailing. All that's needed is a basic tee and you've got yourself an "everyday" outfit...sooooo easy!

"Coastal Stripe Tank Dress" in Heather Grey/White/Red

We're all loving the "Coastal Stripe Tank Dress" in Heather Grey/White/Red. This fitted, racer back maxi dress with rouching in all the right places is pratically calling out for a denim jacket, flip flops, and a seat on a patio somewhere, anywhere!!!

JK Jewels

"Crystal and Ebony" Bracelets in Jet, Smokey, Hematite, and Clear
With maxi (dress) season upon us, don't you think the "Crystal and Ebony" bracelets above by Jocelyn Kennedy would be the perfect compliments?!? Wear them all together, or with other stretch and jewel encrusted bangles...your party, your choice!!! The more the merrier...


Ella Moss: Lacy Surprise

"Lily Tank Top" in Black

Back View
Ella Moss' "Lily Tank Top" in Black couldn't be more perfect! With a fluid rayon body and contrast lace back, this top will be gorgeous with whatever you decide to pair with it. My pick, of course, would be with short shorts (you remember my obsession, right?), ankle booties, and wrists FULL of lovely beaded gems.

How would you style this?

Welcome Back, Equipment!

We're BEYOND excited to welcome back Equipment, a label we have greatly missed. Started in the 70s, "the Equipment collection features modern, androgynous silhouettes, discreet sex appeal, luxe fabrics, unexpected details and feminine riffs on men's shirting." These shirts look great with anything and everything. The following is just the (very) tip of the iceberg; they'll be plenty more to come...

 "Signature Blouse" in Nature White and Fawn Python

The "Signature Blouse," Equipment's classic, is their tried and true "go to." This top looks incredible whether worn on it's own, or under a structured blazer or leather jacket. LOVE this.

"Dylan Tie Front" in Bright White

The "Dylan Tie Front" in Bright White is the perfect topper to a pair of dark rinsed jeans; the look achieved by pairing these two pieces is super chic and sophisticated. 

Who wouldn't love that???

Rebecca Taylor: OMG!!!

 "Tweed Jacket" in Optic White"

OMG...I've been waiting 6 loooooooooooooooong months for Rebecca Taylor's "Tweed Jacket" in Optic White, and it's finally here!!! SOOOOOO gorgeous, is it not?!? I love the deconstructed style of this classic, long and lean silhouette. The frayed edging gives this elegant jacket a modern update. I love the look of it over a basic white tank and jeans, but think it would be equally stunning over a graphic tee with layers upon layers of long necklaces.

This jacket was most definitely worth the wait, but then again, her jackets always are!!!

Rebecca Taylor: Easy Breezy

A small Rebecca Taylor delivery was the PERFECT way to top off a very busy, and exciting week at the store. As always, we loved everything that came in, and so will you...promise! Here's just a snippet of the goodies received...

"Pieced Shell" received in Cream

Rebecca Taylor's "Pieced Shell" received in Cream is the definition of a versatile top. This breezy, silk cap sleeved blouse with a sexy, sheer V-Neck overlay is great for both day and night wear. For day, I see it with ankle length skinnies and ankle boots; for evening, with leather shorts and platforms. Jewellery, of course, would be required for both...either stone based bracelets or sparkly gems, your choice.

"Color Blocked Top" received in Nude

This "Color Blocked Top" received in Nude is the very definition of "throw and go." Featuring sheer sleeves for a feminine touch, this tunic top pairs beautifully with distressed shorts and wedges.

Hurry in for a look at the complete collection!!!


Joie Fave

"Marru" Top in Porcelain

Joie's "Marru" top is one of this season's top sellers (we've already received it in Fiery Red and Blue Aster), and it's not hard to see why. This semi-sheer silk top with pleated detailing at the front and cuffs is so simple, and easy to wear; the gathered elastic banding at the bottom provides for the perfect amount of draping, and allows the top to stay "put." Throw it on with your favourite pair of jeans, or shorts and you're good to go.

 Seriously, can it get any easier?!?

Vince: Summer White

OMG...soooooooo loving Vince's "Popover" sweater in White Frost. This 100% cashmere, ribbed boatneck, 3/4 length dolman sleeve sweater is a complete DREAM...The. Perfect. Top. Wear it with your favourite skinny jeans, short shorts, or over a cute, little sundress on a chilly afternoon. This is one purchase you will never regret!!!

Look Of The Day: If I Could...

Christine popped in today to pay us a visit, and somehow ended up in an outfit I would totally wear if I could: Joie's "Devitri Cardigan" in New Moon and Vince's "Tennis Shorts" in Black. For those of you who don't know this about me, I DO NOT, under any circumstances wear shorts (or skirts, or dresses, or anything where my dimply knees are exposed!!!), I just admire them on others. Oh well, I guess we can't ALL be perfect! For a casual feel, all that's needed are a pair of flats or wedges, but to dress up this look, a pair of fabulous booties should suffice.

Joie: V-Neck Beauty

"Suela Top" in Porcelain

We're loving Joie's latest "basic" piece, the "Suela Top" in Porcelain! This pretty, silk V-Neck top with pleated shoulder detailing is the perfect companion to a pair of shorts and/or jogging'll love the simplicity and ease of this top, promise!!!

Look Of The Day you can see from the picture above, I've had a busy Pinterest weekend :) Lately, we've had a lot of customers inquiring after boyfriend jeans, whether or not they're still "in." You can rest easy as they're most definitely still a seasonal "must."  I LOVE this look, so relaxed yet sophisticated at the same time!!! If you too are a fan, I've put together some items that should help you duplicate this look...

Vince's "Silk Back Sweater" in Black

AG's "Piper Crop" in 26 Years Thrasher

Rebecca Minkoff's "Mac Daddy" in Black


Free People

"Swirl Tank" in Natural Combo

Another great top just arrived from Free People, the "Swirl Tank" in Natural Combo. This easy wearing, "free" flowing tank will be just the thing to grab on those super hot, summery nights; all that's needed to complete this boho look is a pair of denim shorts, fabulous gladiator sandals, and a to die for necklace...can't wait!!!


"Slim Cigarette" in Authentic Bright Blue

With mild distressing and subtle whiskering details, 7FAM's "Slim Cigarette" in Authentic Bright Blue is the perfect wash for an everyday, every occasion pair of jeans! Worn with everything from flats to heels, these will be well-loved by summer's end!!!

What's Mabel Wearing???

Well, it's Mother's Day tomorrow, and Mabel has decided to treat her mama to dinner at a classy restaurant, and for a light gelato afterwords. Along with her  favorite flowers, Mabel hopes that her evening plans show just how much she loves, and appreciates her mom.
For the occasion, she's going to wear Parker's "Ariana Dress" in Nautical, and Vince's "Leather Sleeve" blazer in White. Mabel's also going to wear a House of Harlow necklace, and Rebecca Minkoff's "Mac Daddy" bag in Black. Her outfit gives off a playful, boho vibe with the right amount of class and elegance. The necklace chosen adds a bit of edge to her look, and we agree that along with a pair of tall gladiator sandals, they would be the perfect pairing. 

We think Mabel's mama will be proud!

Vince: The Black And White Of It...

The Black and White trend of seasons past is still going strong as proven by Vince's most recent drop. Not only can these two "colours" create drama when used correctly, but they're also wardrobe staples found in many a fashionista's closets! The following are some of our top picks:

"Colorblock Drop Shoulder Sweater" in Black Sailcloth

How fun is the "Colorblock Drop Shoulder Sweater" in Black Sailcloth? It's Vince's "layered fake-out"...the look of layers without the added bulk, GENIUS!!! 

We're ALL loving the "Mixed Media Top" in Black/White (above). Composed of a Modal front and Silk back, this top is a feminine twist on a classic (casual) silhouette. Dress it down with your favourite skinnies and flats, OR dress it up with a leather skirt and booties!!!
