7FAM: Chambray Rage

"Slim Western Denim Shirt" in French Blue

It seems every week we have a new denim shirt to blog about, AND, with good reason!!! As far as we're concerned, they're a wardrobe essential :) 7FAM's "Slim Western Denim Shirt" in French Blue is perfection worn with shorts and/or skinny jeans, OR, haphazardly thrown over a floral printed dress and booties.

This top is great for its lyocell content: you get the "look" of denim, but the drapey fit and feel of a classic, silk blouse.

ASH: Just In...

Just in from Ash are the "Jalouse" in Platine and Cookie, and "Janis" in Taupe and Black; the former, an ALL time favourite, and latter, soon to be as well!

"Jalouse" received in Platine and Cookie

The "Jalouse" in Platine are definitely for the trend driven fashionista! The metallic finish on these classic booties give them an updated, modern feel while the almond toe and chunky heel offer its wearer supreme comfort and stability. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these...will be fabulous with a cargo jacket, linen tee, and skinny jeans!!!

"Janis" received in Taupe and Black

I'm OBSESSED over the "Janis", obsessed!!! I love everything about them: the peep toe front, back zipper detail, and, obviously, the surround fringe accent. These are unbelievably, indescribably FABULOUS!!! Not only would they be amazing with a leather jacket, graphic tee, and skinny jeans, but, they'd be TO DIE with a kimono jacket, drapey tank, and cut-off, denim shorts!


Ella Moss: Flirty Florals

Looking for a cute, flirty dress for spring??? Ella Moss just read your mind!
 Their new "Taylor Embroidered Dress" in Natural is GORGEOUS and definitely fits the bill!!! The embroidered texture coupled with sheer, mesh detailing makes for an unforgettable dress. The fit and flare silhouette also makes it super flattering and feminine.

Pair this knockout dress with caramel ankle booties and a cropped denim jacket for the perfect date night ensemble!

Equipment: Your New Favourite Dress

It's here!!! Introducing the "Grayson Dress" in Peacoat, your new FAVOURITE dress, the perfect combination of dressy and casual. Every girl needs a cool day-to-night, double-duty dress, and Equipment has delivered it.

"Grayson Dress" in Peacoat

Keep it simple with flats or booties, and minimal accessories for the day, then jazz it up at night, with heels and tons of sparkly bling :)

Equipment: Strawberry Fields Forever

Spring is just around the corner, and Equipment is doing a fine job of reminding us!!! Just in is their "Reagan Tank" in Nature White with Gathered Berry Print. This top is "berry" cute (teehee!) and would be a great addition to your spring wardrobe; it totally reminds me of strawberry picking on a sunny day!!!

"Reagan Tank" in Nature White w/ Gathered Berry Print

I love how the tank is styled in the pic (above); the black shorts and booties provide the perfect contrast to the tank's "cutesy" vibe. For chillier days, swap the shorts out  for pants!!!

Equipment: PROVEN Favourite

 "Liam Tee w/ Contrast Sleeves" in Peacoat Revolutionary Floral Print and Peacoat

We're HUGE fans of Equipment, and of their "Liam Tee(s) with Contrast Sleeves" in particular. Just in are said tops in Peacoat Revolutionary Floral Print and Peacoat. I ADORE both, and can see either with distressed skinnies and ankle boots now, and with lived-in, denim shorts and gladiator sandals later. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these!!!

Joie: Oui, Oui

"Rancher H Oui Oui Tee" in Porcelain

As noted in previous entries, we're obsessed with linen tees, particularly those from Joie, so imagine our excitement when we received the "Rancher Oui, Oui Tee" in Porcelain!!! It has ALL our favourite elements rolled into one: linen feel, perfect fit, cheeky graphic. This is the perfect top to wear under your favourite blazer, skinny jeans, and booties. Is this tee worthy of a spot in your closet?! "Oui, Oui," but of course!!!

Joie: Ruffled Beauty

"Ayana Silk Tank" in Dark Navy

Joie deliveries are always FULL of beautiful things; one of my favourites this go around is the "Ayana Silk Tank" in Dark Navy. This slip of a shell is incredibly pretty and feminine; the higher than usual neckline offers something different, while the keyhole opening in the back offers a hint of sexiness, and, did I mention it had a ruffled rear hem?!! Totally TO DIE FOR!!! Pair this top with leather-like skinnies, pointed toe pumps, and ears and wrists FULL of golden baubles!

Joie: Addicted To Navy

 "Mehira Blazer" in Dark Navy

In my opinion, there are few things chicer than a crisp, linen blazer, and when said blazer is available in Navy, even better!!! Joie's classic "Mehira Blazer" in Dark Navy is one of this season's absolute MUST-HAVES! This slim fitting jacket with notched lapels and three pocket detailing is the perfect accent to a simple tank and jeans outfit. For something edgier, pair with a graphic tee or printed blouse, skinnies, and ankle boots.

They're Back...Again!!!

"So Real Skinny" received in Caviar and Fatigue

Once again, Joie keeps churning them out, and we keep eating them up!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the "So Real Skinny", this time, received in Caviar and Fatigue. These second skin cargos are perfect  anytime of day: with a linen tee and flats for a casual option, or, with a leather jacket, silky tank, and lace-up stilettos for a dressier alternative.

James Perse: Bottoms

We're HUGE fans of James Perse bottoms!!!
Just in are the "Mid Length Mini Stripe Skirt" in Heather Grey and "Vintage Cotton Genie Pant" in Black! They're both incredibly comfortable and versatile. Both pieces would be fabulous paired with a basic tee, leather jacket, and converse sneakers...wedge ones, if you want to be "dressy" :)

James Perse: "Dressy" Top?!!

James Perse's "Relaxed Drape Front Top" is TO DIE FOR!!! It's unbelievably comfortable, and the sheer draping in the front is absolutely STUNNING! In my opinion, the thing I like best about this top is its versatility; it can be worn both casual and dressy.

You'll definitely make use out of this great "EVERYDAY" top!

What's Mabel Wearing???

Today, Mabel's tuning into her glamorous side, and has decided to pile on ALL her favourite jewels!!! The turquoise and gold of her Chan Luu, Julie Voss, Jocelyn Kennedy, and Catherine Popesco necklaces look absolutely STUNNING layered together. As for her outfit, she decided to keep it simple yet stylish with Vince's beautifully cut "Frayed Edge Scuba Jacket" in White over their "Drape Hem Tank" in Black. She tops off her ensemble with Rebecca Minkoff's Black "Mini Mac with Studs", and is ready to take on the weekend in her A-M-A-Z-I-N-G outfit!


It's A "Happiness" Kinda Day!!!


HOORAY!!! We've received an amazing new delivery of graphic tees from our favourite sassy line, Happiness Brand. These "cheeky" and ironically accurate tees are unarguably comfy, and are sure to liven up a pair of jeans and leather jacket! I especially LOVE the "Tonight I Will Behave" baseball tee (below), which would look super cute worn with destroyed skinnies and slouchy moto boots!

Velvet: Linen Tees

Who doesn't love STRIPES??? Who doesn't love LINEN tops??? We LOVE them both!!!

In our most recent delivery of Velvet, we received tanks and tees that combine our two FAVE elements: Linen and Stripes!!! As you can see, we're SUPER excited about them, and would question anyone who wasn't!

We received our favourite combo in three fabulous variations: the "Demi Tank" in Black, "Niva Tee" in Denim, and "Brownie Top" also in Black. We love all three, but are particularly fond of the "Demi" and "Niva". All are extremely comfortable and lightweight, great pieces to be had for spring and summer.

If you're looking for cute, casual, everyday tops, these are an ABSOLUTE must!!!


Cynthia Vincent

"Button Front Hi-Lo Dress" in Black

How GORGEOUS is this Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent "Button Front Hi-Lo Dress" in Black?!! The graduated hemline with shortened slip accent is super flattering, and helps to show off the beautiful tonal embroidery of the fabric. This would be the perfect dress for summer music festivals or just shopping with girlfriends on a warm, sunny day. To play up it's boho vibe, we suggest wearing this dress with Grecian-inspired sandals and TONS of Shakti jewels!!!

Cynthia Vincent: Cozy

We're LOVING this intricately detailed, lurex accented, cozy "Drop Shoulder Crew Sweater" in Taupe by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent!!! The to die for feature of this knit is a lengthwise zipper in the back that allows you to choose exactly how much skin you'd like to show. Wear this sweater with dark skinnies, cognac riding boots, and plenty of golden baubly bits for an outfit that's both stylish and comfy!

News Bulletin: Lauren Moshi Arrival!!!

"China Color Superman Pullover" in White

"Edda Biting Lip Tee" received in Grey and White

At last, a HUGE shipment of Lauren Moshi goodies for us Yu fashionistas! There are SOOOO many amazing styles to choose from, everything from Superman logos to diamond crosses. My two personal faves are the "China Color Superman Pullover" and "Edda Biting Lip Tee", both in White. The former has rips and tears along the edges for a lived-in, well-loved look while the latter is a tad more refined; pair either with destroyed skinny jeans and ankle boots for an edgy, yet laid-back outfit.

Wildfox: Valentine's Blues

Brand NEW Wildfox in! We just received two Valentine's Day (oops, a little tardy, but still FAB nonetheless!) inspired pieces that are perfect for lounging around, and guaranteed to put you in the spring fling mood! The "Island Tank Cupid" in Clean Black is humorous and very, VERY cute!!! This lightweight tank is ideal for the spring/summer season when the heat is SURE to hit! For an edgy look, pair with boyfriend jeans, and a chic motorcycle jacket.

Also received is our favorite BBJ style! The "V Neck Sweet Heart Baggy Beach Jumper" in Multi  screams COMFY!!! The uber soft material is great for hanging out in, and the little sayings are always super cute and catchy...perfect for the spring with shorts and sandals!

 Who needs flowers or chocolates when you can have Wildfox?!! :)


We're SUPER excited about Sack's, the newest addition to the Yu family!!! Based out of Israel, Sack's combines luxury with cool, contemporary styles. They create trendsetting styles using luxe materials such as cashmere, silk, and pure cotton, think silky tanks and t-shirts all infused with a bohemian twist!

 These new tanks by Sack's are SO pretty and are absolute essentials for spring! Both tanks pictured (below) are made of 100% silk and have an extremely luxurious feel! The "Spaghetti Strap Tank" received in Black and Ivory is super versatile; it would be fabulous worn under a classic cardigan with jeans, wedges, and a statement necklace. The "V-Neck Tank" in Pure White features a cross over hem and peekaboo back slit revealing the perfect amount of skin.

We're over the moon in LOVE with Line's "Franklin" leather jacket in Pachyderm, a beautifully rich charcoal. As always, the leather is super soft and supple, and the fit, very flattering. This jacket transitions quite nicely between casual and dressy, which is true of most Line leathers.
"Franklin" in Pachyderm

Also new is the "Thompson" dress in Desert Storm (below), such a flattering and comfortable dress, perfect for any occasion. Not only are we fans of the neutral colouring, but love the fact that the length can be "adjusted" slightly due to the rouching detail. It's a fabulous dress that will be in constant rotation for years to come!

What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel's sporting a rather "SPRINGY" outfit today! All the fabulous colors and floral prints we've been receiving lately have gotten her SUPER excited for the upcoming season. She has on Rebecca Taylor's "Sweet William Tee" in Scarlet and AG's "Robyn" denim jacket in Torrent. To accessorize, Mabel opted for a blue Chan Luu scarf to compliment the colours in her shirt, Rebecca Minkoff's "Flirty Enamel Stud" cross-body bag in Nude, and gems by Julie Vos and Catherine Popesco.

How better to get in the spring spirit then by dressing in some new spring clothes. We like the way Mabel thinks!!! ;)

Equipment: Printed Shells

"Reagan" in Nautical Blue Crowded Dot and "Kyle w/ Contrast Trim" in Bright White Wandering Lady Bug

We're SO loving the fact that along with their classic, button down blouses, Equipment also makes some of the cutest shells around!!! Both the "Reagan" in Nautical Blue Crowded Dot and "Kyle w/ Contrast Trim" in Bright White Wandering Lady Bug prints have a summery, whimsical feel to them. Both are slightly oversized with a higher than average neckline making them ideal toppers for your favourite skinnies and ankle boots.

Equipment: Florals And Spots

"Slim Signature w/ Contrast Collar Blouse" in Peacoat Floral (L) and "Reese Blouse" in Stone Untamed Leopard (R)

In our world, florals and leopard print are, have always been, and will always be considered neutrals. Paired with fabulous basics such as a great boyfriend blazer, or to die for leather jacket, both these blouses are sure to make a statement! My personal favourite is the "Slim Signature w/ Contrast Collar Blouse" in Peacoat Floral; there's a vintage-y bohemian vibe to this top that I absolutely adore...can't wait to see it paired with denim cut-off shorts and ankle booties. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

Happy Family Day!!!

Dearest Fashionistas,

Just a reminder that we'll be closed Monday, February 17th. Come in on Tuesday
 to see all the spring arrivals as well as new markdowns! All sale items are now 50% off.

Enjoy your Family Day!

Rebecca Taylor: Silk Shift

"Sweet William Dress" in Scarlett

This "Sweet William Dress" in Scarlett by Rebecca Taylor is absolutely fabulous!!! The straight, simple cut makes it super easy to wear, and the charming floral print is fresh and springy.  The silky crepe fabric is finished off with white piping detail for a clean, classic look. Wear this dress with delicate, heeled sandals as well as a stack of gold "Love" bracelets for the perfect, lady-like spring outfit!

Rebecca Taylor

 "Guipure Lace Top" in Cream and "Wildcat Print Blouse" in Cream Grey

Will lace and leopard print ever go out of style??? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Rebecca Taylor makes her mark on these classic patterns with the "Guipure Lace Top" in Cream and "Wildcat Print Blouse" in Cream/Grey. The former features a lined, delicate lace overlay with silk trimming on the sleeves, all with an edgy cut that keeps the top from looking too precious. The latter is as fierce as it is feminine, with a deep v-neck and flattering high-low hemline. For a refined yet casual outfit, wear either top with dark, ankle cut skinny jeans, strappy black heels, and wrists FULL of jingle jangles!

Vince: Joggers

"Leather Side Strap Track Pant" in Black

The "Leather Side Strap Track Pant" in Black by Vince is waaaay cooler than your average pair of track pants! The fitted silhouette gets a modern update with leather detailing down the sides, as well as a drawstring waistband, and thick, elasticized ankle cuffs. For a super cool and stylish ensemble, pair these pants with sexy black heels, a bright, silk top, and your favourite leather jacket!


Vince: Lux Leathers

"Vintage Leather Moto Jacket" in Grain and "Paper Leather Scuba Jacket" in Black

Vince has created not one, but TWO perfect leather jackets that we're super excited to get our hands on! The "Vintage Leather Moto Jacket" in Grain and "Paper Leather Scuba Jacket" in Black both have flattering fits, and come in timeless, neutral colours that make them great investment pieces that you'll have and wear for years to come. The former features an asymmetrical zip front with a snap down collar. The latter is exactly as it sounds, paper thin leather which makes it super lightweight. The ribbed under-sleeves provides a close, yet comfy fit. How amazing would both these jackets
looked tossed over a loose black tee, distressed boyfriend jeans, black suede heels, and a pair of cool Wildfox sunnies?!!

Vince: Pretty Toppers

 "Wrap Blouse" in Beige and "Sleeveless Overlay Tank" in Hunter Green

I'm totally loving Vince's "Wrap Blouse" in Beige and "Sleeveless Overlay Tank" in Hunter Green!!! Both tops are the perfect balance of stylish and classy! The "Wrap Blouse" is loose and luxe with a draped front, and banded hem for a "tucked in" look. The "Sleeveless Overlay Tank" has sheer detailing in the front and back making for a subtly, sexy vibe. Either top would be STUNNING worn with coated black jeans, studded heels, and fingers and wrists stacked with silver and gold!
