Free People: Dotted Peplum

"Swing Cami" in Black

Free People's "Swing Cami" in Black is a wardrobe MUST-HAVE!!! With an exaggerated peplum hem, this feminine tank features an allover polka dot pattern, straight neckline, and adjustable straps. Wear on its own with dark skinny jeans and pointed-toe pumps, or, layered under a boxy knit for added detail.

Fine Collection: Textured And Frayed

"T-shirt w/ Cashmere Yoke" in Natural

Fine Collection's "T-shirt w/ Cashmere Yoke" in Natural is casual refinement at its best. With a woven textured front accented with frayed trimming throughout, this mixed media top looks amazing paired with well-worn, much-loved denim. The cashmere back, topped off with a heavy duty zipper, balances out the front's prim and proper appearance. Although great as is, this top can easily be layered over a slim-fitting, long sleeved blouse...LOVE.


Stateside: Frayed Popover

"Vintage Wash Tencel Woven S/S Shift Dress" received in Navy

Isn't Stateside's "Vintage Wash Tencel Woven S/S Shift Dress" ridiculously adorable?!! Received in Navy, a shade reminiscent of a mid-blue denim, this knee length beauty features a subtle scooped neckline, short sleeves, and frayed trimming throughout. Super casual, it looks best with booties and long, layered necklaces.

Stateside: Faux-Wrap

"Supima Slub Jersey Scoop Neck Racerback Maxi Dress" in Charcoal

Crafted from a textured jersey, Stateside's "Supima Slub Jersey Scoop Neck Racerback Maxi Dress" has us OBSESSED. Available in Charcoal, this ankle grazing maxi features a faux-wrap front with a mid-thigh liner. While perfect on holiday paired with a floppy hat and gladiator sandals, we're also loving it styled with a cropped leather jacket and booties.

Wildfox: Cozy Hoodie

"Straight Up Cuddles Hoodie" in Pearl

Wildfox's "Straight Up Cuddles Hoodie" in Pearl is an ultra-soft, sherpa fleece pullover that you'll NOT want to take off! Featuring a roomy, relaxed fit with banded hems and a front pouch pocket, this hoodie will become your best friend during long plane rides or days spent lounging around the house...guaranteed!

Wildfox: Fairytale

"Cramped Wings Barback Tank" in Dirty Black and 
"Little & Fierce Treehouse Tee" in Pearl

 We're definite fans of Wildfox's cheeky tees...the "Cramped Wings Barback Tank" in Dirty Black is a boxy, boyish cut tank with a fairytale-inspired graphic. The feminine details found throughout this androgynous cut, sweetens up the adorable tank. The "Little & Fierce Treehouse Tee" in Pearl is a relaxed tee with a flattering, V-neckline. The Shakespearean quote adds a touch of whimsy to an otherwise basic top. We're loving both this tees layered under a leather jacket with distressed skinnies and moto boots.

Wildfox: Oversized Tees

 "I Owe It To Tunic" in Pearl and "Mermaid On Duty Tunic" in Red

These adorable graphic tees by Wildfox are perfect transitional pieces for spring. The "I Owe It To Tunic" in Pearl and "Mermaid On Duty Tunic" in Red have both been crafted from the softest of materials, and boast a more than relaxed fit that can be worn so many ways: tossed over a bikini, with skinny jeans or leggings, or, half-tucked into shorts as the weather gradually warms. Fashion meets comfort...a definite WINNER.

Joie: Pants White As Snow

"Park Skinnies" received in Porcelain and Cypress

Our fave "Park Skinnies" from Joie have been refreshed for spring in Porcelain, a clean, crisp white. We love these ankle length utility pants with zipper details and over-sized front pockets for a touch of rough and tumble. Incredibly flattering, these second-skin cargos pair ridiculously well with everything from your standard, classic tee to a flirty, feminine blouse.

Joie: A Little Bit Bridal

"Kastra" and "Bittern Dress(es)" in Porcelain

Currently DYING over these two little numbers from Joie, from the delicate lace details to the perfect shade of ivory, the "Kastra" and "Bittern Dress(es)" are serious works of art! We're loving the romantic, yet easy, breezy feel of both these beauties. The former is a classic sheath silhouette adorned with vintage inspired lace insets for a luxurious feminine feel; the latter is an airy chiffon number with a mix of different lace patterns and romantic, embroidered hemline. We love either worn simply with nude sandals and a floppy, wide brim hat, or, for an edgier option, with a leather jacket and moto boots.

Joie: Free Spirit, Fine Taste

"Cammie Kimon" in Porcelain

Kimonos have become a wardrobe staple for all us fabulous, free-spirited, boho souls. Joie has taken this "trend" and elevated it with their "Cammie Kimono" in Porcelain. Undoubtedly luxurious, this floral gem has been crafted from the finest of silks and features dramatically over-sized sleeves and an overall clean, modern cut. Throw this over a simple white tee and baby flare denim for an easy, on trend ensemble, or, mix it up a bit with a graphic tee, leather leggings, and pointed-toe flats.


Joie: The Best Of The Best

"Acerila Top" in Powder Pink

"Lennix Top" in Porcelain

We all know Joie makes the BEST airy, feminine blouses and they've definitely defended their title with this latest grouping. The "Acerila" and "Lennix Top(s)" in Powder Pink and Porcelain leave NO doubt that we'll be falling in love with Joie for many more seasons to come. We're loving the subtle pattern mixing on the sheer, delicate silk of the former, and the stunning watercolour graphic on the latter. Both look great worn casually with jeans, or tucked into a denim A-line skirt for a retro chic pairing.

Joie: Boho Elegance

"Aline Top" in Porcelain

Joie's "Aline Top" in Porcelain is an absolute stunner, to say the least!!! In a washed savory silk with delicate lace detailing throughout, this is a refined take on a hippie-chic blouse. We're obsessing over the intricate touches of embroidery, dainty tassels, and feminine fit. Every aspect about this beauty is understated, yet noteworthy at the same time. Worn over a lacy bralette, this top would be the perfect contrast to a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. LOVE.

Rails: Plaid Is Rad

"Hunter" in White/Ebony and Blue/White/ Raspberry

The best thing about a new season?!! Cult fave tops in fabulous new colours!!! Just in is a replenishment of Rails' classic "Hunter" in a variety of amazing colour combos. With its relaxed silhouette and laid-back feel, the hardest part is going to be choosing which one (or two, or three) you'll be adding to your collection.

Rails: Oh Hey, Chambray

"Mila Tencel Top" in Light Vintage Wash

Rails is seriously killing it with all the chambray this delivery! Another MUST-HAVE piece is the "Mila Tencel Crop" in Light Vintage Wash, a fabulous summertime option featuring an easy, sleeveless fit with button-up front. With a subtle hi-lo hemline and a touch of prep from the collar, this crop top pairs well with just about everything. For a great transitional outfit, wear it fully buttoned with leather skinnies and topped of with a blingy statement necklace.

Rails: Snappy "Nadia"

"Nadia Jacket" in Light Vintage Wash

We're seriously crushing on Rails' "Nadia Jacket" in Light Vintage Wash, aren't you?! The carefree, drapey feel of this beauty makes it the perfect choice to top off all your spring outfits. We LOVE the ultra light-wash chambray, which of course, is ridiculously soft; the silver hardware throughout provides a nice finishing touch. Go for an edgy, casual look by throwing this over a graphic tee and leather shorts.

Rails: Beautiful "Sawyer"

"Sawyer Shirtdress" in Navy/Midnight

We're SO in love with Rails' "Sawyer Shirtdress" in Navy/Midnight. Like the "Hunter", it features a relaxed fit with a singular front pocket. Casually, we adore it worn loosely on its own, but to elevate the look, pair with a leather jacket, braided belt, and moto boots.

Rails: Blue Skies And Chambray

"Anya Dress" received in Light Vintage Grid and White Grid

With the clear blue skies today, we couldn't think of a dress more perfect to arrive in store. Available in Light Vintage Grid and White Grid, Rails' "Anya Dress" will be your new "go to" grab for those casual spring days. Beyond silky soft and draping perfectly about the body, you'll fall in love with the dress' tencel fabrication. We're thrilled with the higher neckline and A-line shape, which gives it movement, swing, and a fun, flirty feel.

MOTHER: Brand New "Vintage"

"Looker" in Songs Of The Cowboys

One of our fave washes from MOTHER Denim, Songs Of The Cowboys, is now available in one of our fave styles, the "Looker". We LOVE the all over fading and abrasions at the knee, a classic MOTHER aesthetic, not to mention this medium wash has all the details of a vintage treasure from the gentle distressing to the comfy stretch, we know you'll live in them!

MOTHER: Lets Get Blackout

"Looker Ankle Fray" in Crash And Burn

MOTHER Denim's "Looker Ankle Fray" in Crash And Burn is absolutely TO DIE FOR. We love the whiskering at the hips and distinct fading at the knees and booty...totally rocker chic, don't you think?! Pair with a loose, tie-up blouse and pointed-toe pumps for a sexy date night ensemble.

We've told you before, and we'll tell you again, mini skirts are BACK, and this time, they're better than EVER!!! We're especially lusting after MOTHER Denim's "Vagabond Mini Fray" in Hijacking the Runway. Weathered, deconstructed, and well-worn in appearance, this denim skirt features distressing at the hem and pockets for an edgy, rock 'n roll vibe. Pair with a graphic tee, strappy heels, and a pile of glam necklaces to offset the grunge.

MOTHER: We Like It Laced

"Tie Me Up Easy" in Black

We're SO on board the lace-up trend that's blowing up right now. Our latest obsession?!! MOTHER Denim's "Tie Me Up Easy" in Black.

Comfy, casual, and sexy...pair with black distressed skinnies and moto boots for an edgy, everyday look.

MOTHER: Honour Roll

"Straight A Fray Jacket" in Chill

Just in from MOTHER Denim is the "Straight A Fray Jacket" in Chill. This baby is knocking it out of the park, no failing grades here! We love the soft, mid-blue look of this beauty complete with all accompanying details: cropped body, boxy fit, distressed hemline, and split-cuff accents...definitely a piece on our fashion honour roll!!! Pair with a basic tee, distressed boyfriend jeans in a contrasting dark wash, and pointed-toe stilettos for a modern take on the classic, Canadian tuxedo


Free People: Summer Daze

"Sydney Lace Tube" in Ivory

This pretty little number captured our attention as soon as it was unpacked! Not only does it feature gorgeously intricate crochet lace, but Free People's "Sydney Lace Tube" in Ivory is also equipped with a built-in, bandeau bra. It is THE quintessential summer top...flowy lace, crisp white, and absolutely no fuss needed. We love this with denim cut-offs, sneakers, and accessorized with some fringe for a hippie chic ensemble.

Free People: All I Need, All I Want

"All I Need Top" in Ivory

Free People's "All I Need Top" in Ivory is really all we need! We LOVE the all over embroidered details, which give this beauty a pop of boho flair. With an off the shoulder silhouette and voluminous sleeves, the carefree, breezy fit of this lightweight, woven cotton top is super easy to wear. With high-waisted, cream lace shorts topped off with our go to belt, the "Bri Bri" from B-Low the Belt, it's absolutely perfect for all your summer adventures!!!

UGG: Clog Comeback

"Jennie" in Primer

We're OBSESSED with UGG's "Jennie", a modern interpretation of the classic clog, perfect for spring/summer. Received in Primer, they feature polished studs, retro chic T-straps in a soft neutral nubuck, a chunky wooden platform, block heel, and a PORON insole for added comfort. We love the hippie feel of this shoe, which would look perfect paired with a distressed denim mini skirt and dramatic, bell-sleeve crop top.

UGG: Kick Back, Relax

"Aira Serape" in Skyline

At the end of a long day, there's nothing better than kicking off your heels, and stepping into your favourite slippers. We, and our tired feet, are in LOVE with UGG's newest cozy, the "Aira Serape" in Skyline. This comfy, fluffy slipper boasts somewhat of a southwestern flair with its serape pattern, tan leather trim, and exaggerated whip-stitch detailing; also, the plush sheepskin collar adds a touch of cozy luxury to these to die for slippers. We almost don't want to put on real shoes EVER again!!!

Inspired by the hippie vibe of the '70s, Vintage Swag takes authentic vintage Louis Vuitton bags and injects them with a MAJOR dose of bohemian flair.
