We cannot get enough of leather leggings right now, especially Splendid's FAUX LEATHER "Downtown Leggings" in Black!!!
We LOVE the contrast of the faux leather front, and comfy terry legging in the back! A full-on leather legging can be intimidating for some, so these are a perfect alternative.

"Downtown Leggings" in Black

 These leggings would look amazing with a big, chunky knit or tunic top, and can be worn for both casual and dressy occasions!


Splendid: Casual Exotics

 "Vintage Python" in Heather Grey 

Splendid's new "Vintage Python Sweatshirt" in Heather Grey is a perfect, casual staple to have in your wardrobe! This ultra soft top would look fantastic with distressed skinnies, a Chan Luu scarf, wedge sneakers, and don't forget that essential arm party full of Chan Luu and Love Heals bracelets!

What's Mabel Wearing???

Getting ready for her day of errands and Christmas shopping, Mabel was feeling very boho chic. She has on one of her fabulous new Equipment tops, the "Knox Blouse" in Bright White, and to stay warm and toasty, her Mackage "Hidi" leather jacket in Brick and Chan Luu scarf in Sand Dollar. To top off her SMASHING ensemble, Mabel has opted to wear necklaces by both Shakti and Chan Luu, not to mention Rebecca Minkoff's "New Era Sunny" bag in Hunter Green; after all, what's an outfit without accessories???

Cynthia Vincent...TO DIE FOR!!!

Here's yet another STUNNING party piece by Cynthia Vincent!!! This "Criss Cross Jumper" in Holiday Sequin is truly TO DIE FOR!!! We're infatuated with its effortless draping, and are OBSESSED with its edgy leather straps, and over-sized gold belt. I don't know about all of you, but I think this jumper is a fabulous alternative to a LBD this holiday season. All it needs is a fabulous pair of heels, and a great, BIG statement necklace to finish it off!

"Breton Stripe Cashmere Sweater" in Coastal Blue

I'm in LOVE with Vince's "Breton Stripe Cashmere Sweater" in Coastal Blue!!! This incredibly chic sweater boasts a 100% cashmere content, wide crew neck, slightly boxy cut, and long fitted sleeves. I can imagine it being worn all year long: now, under a shearling coat with fitted skinnies and boots, and later, with denim cutoffs and converse sneakers. 


Ella Moss' Christmas Must!!!

Looking for a FABULOUS outfit to wear this Christmas??? We have something in mind...

 "Anita Shift Dress" in Gold

How STUNNING is Ella Moss' "Anita Shift Dress" in Gold??? We think it's the perfect Christmas dress!
We love the cut of the dress along with the 3/4 length sleeve; we're also ESPECIALLY  fond of the sequin embellished trim!!!
You'll DEFINITELY make a statement in this classy number; however, to be on the safe side, we recommend staying clear of any mistletoe ;)

Fabulous Fur

"Viv Faux Fur Jacket" received in Black"

Ella Moss has dazzled us again with this fabulously cozy, faux fur jacket! The "Viv Faux Fur Jacket" in Black will be a holiday staple this season; I see it worn over a sparkly beaded top with black cigarette pants, and layers upon layers of gorgeous statement necklaces!!! For something a little more casual, throw this jacket on over a Lauren Moshi tee, dark AG skinnies, and ankle boots.

Equipment Essentials

We've just received a shipment FULL of fabulous Equipment beauties!!! Some of my favorites are the "Slim Signature Blouse" in Nature White Endangered Floral, and the "Knox Shirt" in Bright White; there are soooo many gorgeous silk tops, and even a cashmere knit for all you fashionistas to choose from!

"Slim Signature Blouse" in Nature White Endangered Floral

The "Slim Signature Blouse" in Nature White Endangered Floral would look FAB with distressed skinny jeans, a Chan Luu scarf, and an arm party full of sparkly Catherine Popesco bracelets.

"Knox Shirt" in Bright White

I'm SO in love with the "Knox Shirt" in Bright White! Pair it with a fur vest, AG skinnies, and Joie "Dalton" booties; to further bring out the bohemian feel of the top, throw on a to die for grouping of Shakti necklaces and Chan Luu wrap bracelets.

Vince: Drapey Gem

"Wrap Seam Pant" in Black

The jogging pant trend continues with Vince's "Wrap Seam Pant" in Black. These relaxed fit, cropped pants feature an "elasticized waist, slash pockets, (and) wrap seam detail." In addition to being incredibly stylish, these "joggers" are super versatile, pairing beautifully with silky tanks, linen tees, and chunky knits.

Vince Sweaters

BRRRRRR... it's getting awfully CHILLY out there! Good thing we just received some FABULOUS new Vince sweaters to warm you up.

"Shadow Stripe Sweater" in Acorn

We're dying over the "Shadow Stripe Sweater" in Acorn. This gorgeous, intricate knit is a dressier variation of everyone's favorite chunky sweater. It's super cozy, and that little bit of shimmer adds a feminine touch which we all LOVE!!! This sweater looks great worn over a sequin bra...if its not tooooo chilly outside that is!

"Luxe Colorblock Sweater" in Heather Platinum Thunder

Who wouldn't LOVE a fabulously luxe cashmere sweater, ESPECIALLY one that's color-blocked!!! Vince's "Luxe Colorblock" sweater in Heather Platinum Thunder is TO DIE FOR!!! 
 We love the way this sweater drapes so effortlessly, and of course how COMFORTABLE and COZY it is!!! It's perfect thrown on with a pair of jeans, or dressed up with a pair of black skinnies and...of course, a statement necklace.


Rebecca Taylor: GORGEOUS Lace Peplum!!!

We just received (right in time for holiday party season) Rebecca Taylor's GORGEOUS "Cap Sleeve Demi Peplum Top" in Cream/Black. The contrast of the cream and black is absolutely stunning, and the soft ponte fabric makes for a very comfortable top! The peplum is also super flattering, and a detail we're OBSESSED with!
This flirty little number would look amazing dressed up with either a pencil skirt and/or a pair of black skinny pants, and a statement necklace OF COURSE!!!

Funky t-shirts and casual wear are the basis of his line whose images are "inspired by current news, music, and gossip."

"Paris Baseball Tee" in White/Black

One of our absolute faves this delivery, the "Paris Baseball Tee" in White/Black, features an inverted Eiffel Tower; this top looks fab paired with distressed skinnies and ankle boots, all that's missing is a fur accented leather jacket and Chan Luu scarf!

Britt's Must Have!!!

Soooo... it appears as though winter has arrived, and I have to say I am DEVASTATED, as I'm sure most of you are! It's already FREEEEEZING outside, and I'm not someone who functions well in the cold, so this week, my must have is DEFINITELY PJ Salvage's "Cozi Cardi" in Taupe. Not only is it one of the COMFIEST things I've ever tried on, it may also be one of the WARMEST. Just like a snuggie, these cardis are like blankets with arms, except not too long that you can't move around in them. 
I'm pretty sure once I pick one up for myself, I'm not going to want to take it off....EVER!!!

"Cozi Cardi" in Taupe

This will undoubtedly be my companion through the (endless) cold winter months!!!!


What's Mabel Wearing???

After much fuss and turmoil getting ready this morning, Mabel has come up with the perfect outfit for lunch and shopping with the girls. Line's super cool "Huntsman" leather jacket in Caviar looks edgy paired with Lauren Moshi's "Frankie Wonder Woman Tee" in White/Black, and of course, NO outfit is complete without at least a few sparkly statement necklaces!!!

HeartLoom: Sporty Glamour

"Clara Sweatshirt" in Heather Tar

"Kyla Pant" in Heather Tar

Who says working out can't be glamorous??? HeartLoom's "Clara Sweatshirt" with its crystal encrusted neckline and "Kyla Pant", both in Heather Tar, are sure to make you the most glamorous sporty girl out there; however, not to worry if you're not the sporty type, you can always pair this FAB sweatshirt with distressed skinnies and boots, and of course an arm party full of sparkly Catherine Popesco and Tai bracelets!

Nation Ltd.

"Sugarland Tee" in Bone and "Fairfax Top" in Black

We're all HUGE fans of Nation Ltd. around here; their vast assortment of tanks and tees all seem to have that perfect mix of dressy and casual. At the moment, we're CRAZY over Nation's use of faux leather accents in their tops; this added detail further separates them from others in their category. Both the "Sugarland Tee" in Bone and "Fairfax Top" in Black are MUST HAVES!!! Wouldn't they be great paired with leather leggings and boots?!

Joie: Drapey Love

"Mariner Pants" in Caviar

We've seen the jogger pants around now for the last few seasons. Clearly, this look is NOT going away anytime soon due to its extreme versatility; dress them up, dress them down, these pants look incredible either way.

We're particularly fond of Joie's "Mariner Pants" in Caviar. Made of a slightly heavier fabric, they seem to drape and hang in all the right places. They look great worn with a silk blouse and pointed toe pumps, but my favourite is seeing them paired with a leather jacket and linen tee. FABULOUS.

Joie: Winter White

It's that time of year again, time to replenish your wardrobe with silky basics, my FAVE!!! In from Joie are a number of fabulous finds, some of which found a home in my closet :)

"Aleene Tank" in Porcelain

Seriously, how gorgeous is the "Aleene Tank" in Porcelain??? This laser cut, floaty top is PERFECTION...great under a chunky sweater coat, with your favourite skinny jeans, and ankle boots, OR, when spring rolls around again, with a pair of denim shorts and gladiator sandals. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one!

"Glenna Top" in Porcelain

I also couldn't wait to get my hands on the "Glenna Top", also available in Porcelain. This airy, slightly oversized blouse is a silk lover's dream, guaranteed to be in HEAVY rotation this season and next!!!

Chan Luu: Sequins

We all know and love Chan Luu for her beautiful bracelets and to die for scarves, but did you know she also does apparel?!! CRAZY, we know!!! Like everything else in the line, her clothing is out of this world... ridiculously, shamelessly, unapologetically GORGEOUS!!! It was impossible to choose, but the following are some of our early favourites:

"Nylon Mesh Tiered Top" in Rabbit/Gunmetal

I LOVE the "Nylon Mesh Tiered Top" in Rabbit/Gunmetal, loooove it!!! This ethereal tank is perfect for the holiday season; I see it worn under a fitted blazer with skinny pants and sky high platforms, OR, for someone a little more daring, on its own with leather leggings and pointed toe pumps.

"Sequin Bra" received in Assorted Colours

Chan Luu's "Sequin Bra" should be in every fashionista's closet. This wardrobe "necessity" is a must under open knit sweaters and off the shoulder tops ;)


7FAM: Real Or Faux???

"Seamed Skinny" in Crackled Leather-Like Wine

We've mentioned numerous times on this blog that 7FAM is a company that makes SURE they remain at the forefront of denim design and technology; therefore, it was NOT a surprise to us when we received the "Seamed Skinny" in Crackled Leather-Like Wine. 7FAM worked their magic and turned KNIT fabric into something that looks and feels like genuine suede leather...unbelievable!!!

I LOVE these pants; I think they'd look fabulous paired with a denim shirt, leopard printed belt, ankle booties, and a Chan Luu scarf...oh, and we mustn't forget a statement necklace :)

7FAM: Grey And Black Story

With past seasons showing denim in a wide range of colours, you could say designers are now going back to basics. That being said, colour is NOT going anywhere, but, what we are seeing is a return of classic Grey and Black...

"Fashion Zipped Skinny" in Grey Sateen and "Leather"

I LOVE 7FAM's "Fashion Zipped Skinny" in Grey Sateen and "Leather". These shorter length skinnies with contrast paneling and zipper accented details, both at the front and ankle, are SO fashion forward! I think they'd be incredible paired with a crisp, button down shirt, statement necklace, and pointed toe pumps.

"Skinny" in Floral Flocked Denim

I'm also OBSESSED with the "Skinny" in Floral Flocked Denim; I love the velvet-like texture of the floral brocade. I see these worn with a boyfriend blazer, fitted turtleneck, and super-sized pearl studs...SOOOO classic yet modern at the same time, what's not to love???


7FAM: Destroyed Black

"Skinny" in Grey/Black Destroyed

7FAM's second skin "Skinny" in Grey/Black Destroyed are ridiculously cool!!! In addition to being incredibly stretchy, these jeans have fading and tears in ALL the right places. If you're a rocker chick at heart, these are an absolute MUST HAVE, no question about it! Pair them with your favourite leather jacket and graphic tee to play up the edge factor, or with a boyfriend blazer and lace cami for a sexy evening alternative. LOVE these!!!

What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel's jetting off to New York this weekend to do some Christmas shopping with friends. She needs to look fabulous strutting down Fifth Avenue, so, of course, shes pulled out her most FABULOUS fur vest, H Brand's "Grace Rabbit Fur Vest" in Ash. Mabel's decided to pair it with Velvet's "Cleopatra Blouse" in Cream. She's also rocking Mackage's "Navaki" side purse in Merlot, and an assortment of our FAVE crystal statement necklaces!!! Mabel looks SUPER glamorous, and will definitely fit in...OR STAND OUT amongst all the New York fashionistas! Once she throws on a pair of light skinnies, and nude high heeled booties, there'll be nothing getting in the way of her strut!

Autumn Cashmere: Naughty And Nice

We can't seem to resist anything from Autumn Cashmere; how can we, when they keep coming up with goodies such as these?!!

"Hi-Lo Beaded Skull" in Black

How fabulous is the "Hi-Lo Beaded Skull" in Black?!! I LOVE how the beaded/embroidered skull pops against the dark backdrop. I envision this top worn with leather leggings and motorcycle boots, or over a silk button down shirt, dark skinnies, and ankle booties, a definite MUST HAVE for that rocker chic fashionista!

"Flower Peace" in Navy Combo

If you lean more towards the bohemian side of things, AC's "Flower Peace" in Navy Combo is the one for you. This scoop necked, boxy beauty is perfect layered over a long sleeved tee, and worn with your favourite distressed skinnies, and riding boots...oh, and we can't forget a Chan Luu scarf!

Autumn Cashmere: Stars And Stripes

"Stars and Stripes Sweatshirt" in Black/Parchment

How fun is Autumn Cashmere's "Stars and Stripes Sweatshirt" in Black/Parchment?!! This slightly oversized knit is super cozy and lightweight, perfect for those "throw and go" days...great with skinnies, but even BETTER with boyfriends!

Super Heroes By Lauren Moshi

"Edda Batman Tee" in Black and "Frankie Wonder Woman Tee" in White/Black

There's NO escaping super heroes around here; Marvel-based characters are seen everywhere from the big screen to fashion nowadays. This being the case, it was only a matter of time before these much beloved insignias started to appear on everyone's favourite graphic tees: Lauren Moshi!!!

These tees, while nostalgic and kitschy to some, remain true to the Lauren Moshi "formula," great cut, great style, great FUN!!! Wear them year, under a chunky sweater coat with your favourite skinnies, and boots, and later, with a pair of denim cut offs and converse sneakers. We CAN'T get enough of these tees!!!


Wildfox: Butterfly Wings

"Fairy Wings Cozy Raglan Top" in Clean White

Wildfox's "Fairy Wings Cozy Raglan Top" in Clean White is SO pretty! This raw edged tee features a scoop neckline, relaxed body, skinny sleeves, and has a pale pink butterfly splashed across the back...the perfect companion to distressed skinnies and boots this season!

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Joie: Graphic Goodie

"Keena" in Caviar

If you're a fan of the legging, Joie's "Keena" in Caviar is a definite MUST HAVE!!! These tonally graphic skinnies with banded waist, and tapered leg are ideal for flowy blouses and oversized knits. I love them with strappy heels for evening, and booties for day.


James Perse: Black & White

"Contrast Collar Blouse" in White/Black

James Perse's "Contrast Collar Blouse" in White/Black with its contrast banding, covered button placket, and semi-sheer body gives a "dressed up" feel to an otherwise casual blouse. This top looks great with denim, but would be fabulous tucked into one of this season's hottest trends: the pencil skirt.

Monday, November 4, 2013


"Skater Skirt" in Black

I'm obsessed with Splendid's "Skater Skirt" in Black...SO flirty, SO fun, SO fabulous!!! Because of the jersey fabric, this skirt would be perfect topped off with a leather jacket, graphic, tee, and lace-up booties; for something a little more sophisticated, a fitted turtleneck, opaque tights, and knee high boots will suffice.

Rails! Rails! Rails!

We're SO excited, yet again, to bring another fabulous line to our fashionistas: Rails. Launched in 2006, this casual yet fashionable line combines California comfort with European styling. Famous for their button down shirts, Rails places great importance on the quality of their fabrics as well as the tailoring of their garments. The pieces within the line are "relaxed, but always refined". The following are some of our current faves:

"Kendra" in Black/Grey

"Kendall" in Light Vintage
