Velvet: PLAID Love

 "Fran Plaid Popver" in Sky

SO much love for Velvet's "Fran Plaid Popover" in Sky! Featuring double-faced plaid in a GORGEOUS blue/orange combo, this relaxed fitting top also boasts 3/4 length sleeves and a split V-neck placket...the perfect companion to worn-in boyfriend jeans and slip-on sneakers!

Velvet: Parisian Flair

We ADORE a great stripe, who doesn't?!! This season, Velvet's rolled out TWO key pieces that belongs in every fashionista's closet...

"Teresita Top" in Cream

The "Teresita Top" in Cream is unbelievably fantastic! Featuring dropped shoulder seams, split side vents, and a subtle hi-lo hemline, this striped cozy oozes Parisian charm. Pair with your favourite black skinnies and pointed-toe flats for an outfit high on style, yet low on effort. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

"Abelia Dress" in Grey

The "Abelia Dress" in Grey has been given a modern and quirky twist with its inverted back seam. Like its predecessor, this too boasts dropped shoulder seams and an easy fit. We're loving it styled with a leather jacket and combat boots. SO cool!

Velvet: Patterned Gems

Velvet, best known for their easy wearable pieces, has clearly outdone themselves this collection. Early standouts include their tribal-influenced items such as the "Dominica African Print Top" received in Wine and the "Amabel Printed Challis Dress" in Twilight.

"Dominica African Print Top" received in Wine

The former is a cotton blend, peasant blouse featuring an allover geometric pattern, split neckline with embroidered trim, and elasticized sleeves. To compliment the top's easy, breezy feel, we love it best paired with second skin skinnies and slouchy boots. A big, floppy hat and oversized cashmere scarf will amplify the outfit's boho vibe.

"Amabel Printed Challis Dress" in Twilight

The latter is an absolute MUST if you're a fan of "throw and go" fashion! Featuring a V-neckline, asymmetrical hem, and removable waistband, this printed dress is perfectly appropriate for anything and everything. For day, throw it on with strappy sandals and simple jewellery; for evening, with a leather jacket and peep-toe booties.


Free People: "Bauhaus" Maxi

"Bauhaus Swit Dress" in Storm/Navy Combo

We're completely SMITTEN with Free People's "Bauhaus Swit Dress" in Storm/Navy Combo! Featuring a bold, two-tone geometric pattern, this V-neck knitted maxi also boasts double side slits and a straight, slightly body-con fit. Pair with a leather jacket and stacked heeled booties for an edgy meets boho look.

Lauren Moshi: Rock & Roll

LOVE, LOVE, LOVING Lauren Moshi's most recent delivery...

"Roxanne Rock & Roll Hand Muscle Tee" in Paint Stain

How fabulous is the "Roxane Rock & Roll Hand Muscle Tee" in Paint Stain?!! SO cool. Featuring an easy, relaxed fit, this crew neck top exudes a "cool girl" vibe and would look AMAZING thrown on under a printed kimono with distressed denim shorts and ankle booties.

"Briley Rock & Roll S/S Tee with Open Back" in Double Black

Another gem this shipment is the "Briley Rock & Roll S/S Tee with Open Back" in Double Black. Similar in cut to the "Roxanne", this one's been accented with short sleeves and an exposed back, perfect paired with a leather jacket, dark skinnies, and moto boots.

James Perse: Team Sweatpants

"Slim Sweatpants" in Black

Usually I'm "Team NO Pants" (guess who's writing this blog...), but, since the world does require pants to be worn on a daily basis, I'm also a happy member of "Team Sweatpants", and James Perse's "Slim Sweatpants" in Black fulfills all my sweatpant dreams!!! Its slim fit and tapered legs disguises the comfort of your baggiest sweats in a clean and modern silhouette, one you'd be proud to leave the house in. Not only will you LOOK your best, but you'll FEEL it too!

Free People: We Heart This Dress

Just like every other dress by Free People, the "From Your Heart Dress" in Midnight Combo will have you dreaming of running around barefoot with flowers in your hair! Its billowy, relaxed fit makes it a boho chic staple while the muted colour palate is perfect for the transition into fall, not too bright, not too dark.

"From Yout Heart Dress" in Midnight Combo

Pair it with opaque tights and your favourite booties for a STUNNER of an outfit. Anywhere you wear it, you'll absolutely HEART this dress!

Free People: S'il Vous Plait?

Free People's most recent delivery has been sealed with a kiss...

...the "French Kiss Tee" in Navy Combo, that is!!! With its asymmetrical hem and light, airy back, this ADORABLE number has us swooning! The gauze-like trim surrounding the nautical striped front adds a feminine touch, a certain "je ne sais quoi", don't you think?!! Pack this beauty for an espresso and macaron date in Paris, or, simply wear it to the nearest Starbucks...a girl can dream, can't she?!!

Free People: In Love with Lace

Free People's "Racerback Bralette" is back, and better than ever! Available in a gorgeous Pink/Ivory Combo, this two-tone beauty transforms an otherwise simple bralette into a romantic treasure. 

 "Racerback Bralette" in Pink/Ivory Combo

Wear with a backless summer dress to show off the pretty racerback detail, or, when cooler temps roll around, under an off the shoulder sweater for a sexy peek of lace. 

MOTHER: Favourite "Skinnies"

Our NEW favourite skinnies are MOTHER's "Looker"; we can't seem to get enough...

"Looker Ankle Fray" in Girl Crush

We're OBSESSED with the "Looker Ankle Fray" in Girl Crush, OBSESSED!!! Lightly faded with a raw, frayed hem, these second skin skinnies look AMAZING with anything and everything. We're loving it styled a la Canada with a denim button-down and pointed-toe pumps :)

 "Stunner Ankle Fray" in Graffiti Girl

MOTHER's "Stunner Ankle Fray" in Graffiti Girl are a fashion lover's DREAM!!! Outfitted with a waist flattering 10" rise, these faded beauties have distressing along the front and back pockets for that perfect vintage/retro vibe.


MOTHER: The "Dropout" BF

"Dropout" in Tequila Truth

Girl + Boy = Match Made in Heaven...introducing MOTHER's "Dropout" in Tequila Truth, a feminized version of the ever popular "Boyfriend" jean!!! Featuring a loose fit around the waist that gradually tapers down the leg, these denim stunners have been outfitted in THE perfect wash, a beautifully faded blue with whiskering and wear and tear details along the hip and pockets. Pair with a silky blouse and pointed-toe pumps for an uptown meets downtown, cool girl vibe. LOVE.

If you're loving this sweater as much as we are, you may even be excited for fall and the inevitable temperature drop!

There's NO doubt that Equipment and silk blouses go hand in hand, but, in case for some strange reason you aren't quite convinced, this latest shipment is here to prove the point. Flowy silk blouses with androgynous structured cuts in the coolest prints and bold colours, what's NOT to love?!!

"Slim Signature" in Classic Blue Multi Kurt Plaid and "Reese Top" in Peacoat Multi Geo Lace Print

What's Mabel Wearing???

Our beloved socialite and fashionista, Mabel, is off to Taste of Edmonton today in a casual, but NEVER boring ensemble. She's decided to jazz up Wildfox's "Essential V-Neck Tee" in Clean White with Stylestalker's "Safia Bra" in Rose completing the look with Doma's "Suede Fringe Jacket" in Beige. Mabel's also obsessed with her new Tai "Initial Necklace" which she's decided to layer with various Shakti stunners. Not only will our girl be bringing her appetite to the festival, she'll be bringing LOADS of style too!

Rebecca Taylor: Embroidered Black

"Sleeveless Embroidered Chiffon Top" in Black

We're completely SMITTEN with Rebecca Taylor's "Sleeveless Embroidered Top" in Black! Accented with embroidered detailing throughout the shoulders and back yoke, this top also boasts a scalloped trim, soft pleating, and slight hi-lo hemline...great with slim-fitting black pants, but AMAZING with distressed skinnies and sky-high heels!

STYLE STALKER: What A Vision!!!

"Visions Top" in Sky

How GORGEOUS is Style Stalker's "Visions Top" in Sky?!! SOOOO beautiful! The exposed back and high neckline provide the perfect contrast between sexy and "lady". Pair this top with cream shorts and lace-up sandals for a wedding appropriate ensemble, or, with grey skinnies and ankle boots for a date-night option.


"Safia Bra" received in White and Rose and "Mellina Bra" in Black
These HAVE to be my favorite find of the entire Style Stalker shipment! I'm SUCH a sucker for lace bralettes; they're sexy and add something "extra" to a basic jeans and tee outfit, not to mention they're the perfect solution to all the low-cut tops out there. The "Safia Bra" with its mesh accent provides slightly more coverage than the "Mellina", which is a better option for someone who likes more support or more lace exposed. I LOVE it and think it would look great under a silk tank with black skinnies and heels for a night out on the town!

Wednesday, July 22, 2015


We're THRILLED to introduce another fabulous line to our Yu fashionistas: Style Stalker. Started by two best friends, Rachel Zeilic and Sue-Ann San, the brand was initially started as an online venture but has since BLOWN UP! Though originally from Sydney, the girls are designing out of LA, so expect to see a combination of cutting edge Australian style with Los Angeles' laid back vibe. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

Composed of the finest cashmere, this pullover cozy features a relaxed fit and plunging V-neckline; pair with a lacy peekaboo bralette and distressed skinnies for an always appropriate, everyday look!

Equipment: Flower Power

These days, floral patterns have become as "basic" as stripes and/or leopard print, and Equipment's "Adalyn" and "Signature Blouse(s)" this delivery have been injected with an autumnal vibe...

"Adalyn Blouse" in True Black Attic Floral Print

Received in True Black Attic Floral Print, the "Adalyn Blouse" features a slightly relaxed fit with a plunging neckline and pajama-inspired collar. Pair with a leather jacket, distressed grey skinnies, and moto boots for a fall ready look, or, with denim shorts and leather slides for one of the moment :)

The "Signature Blouse" in Chalk Print Multi Amplified Pressed Flower Print is STUNNING!!! Infused with an oversized floral pattern, this menswear inspired button-down features a relaxed fit and two front pockets.

Equipment: ESSENTIAL

"Kaylen Tank" received in Bright White and Chalk Pink

OMG, it's time for new silky basics, and Equipment's "Kaylen Tank" is THE one to get!!! Received in Bright White and Chalk Pink, this simple shell features a scoop neck in the front and back.

IRO: "Laura"

"Laura Top" in Grey

IRO Pre-Fall helps us sleep at night!!! Seriously, we're obsessed with EVERYTHING they create, the "Laura Top" in Grey in particular. Featuring a crew neckline with slim fitting sleeves, this cotton and wool blended tee is a great basic with a "twist", both figuratively and literally. We're LOVING this top paired with ripped skinnies and/or leather pants!

What's Mabel Wearing???

This week, Mabel's fully embracing the warm, sunny weather by pulling out, and wearing, all her summer favorites! She's chosen to layer James Perse's "Linen Tomboy Tank" in White with Gypsy Soul's "Las Bonitas Kimono" in Garden Peony. Like Mabel, we're completely smitten with this wrap; it looks amazing thrown over anything and everything! To shield her from the sun, she's decided to pair her outfit with LLR Vintage's "These Grey Days-Short Stiff Brim Hat" in Light Feather Grey; jewels by Shaki and Jugar 'N Spice finish off her boho-inspired look. Her plan is to hit up the patio tonight for drinks, care to join??!
