Where the Wild Things Are

Femme Fatal, Bombshell or Fantasy





What stirs your inner desires?


Art Deco details, cocktail dresses, Vionnet designs, intimate dinners, Milan...

Life is about dreaming big...is it dreaming or does it become reality? The world of fashion takes us to places that we can only imagine, or does it take us to places that we only thought we could imagine?


Milano, Pizza Con Cucina and Louis Vuitton perhaps...




Femme Fatal, a miracle of nature, a vamp, a master of sartorial enhancement or just a fantasy figure asks Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt...


The world of fashion creates these fantasy figures, each so different from the last but bonded together in an alternate world


Madam Figaro does it well, Eva Green featured as the ultimate bond girl but now as a blond bombshell, Eva meets Marilyn taking us into that world again.


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but where does it take you?


It changes, hourly, daily seasonally and the best part about the world of fashion is maybe we don't need to know whether it is fantasy or reality, maybe it is neither.


Food for thought,



Much Love,

Dreaming of Denim

| Friday, May 16, 2014

Denim has maintained staple status
in closets for decades.
This season we're seeing the 
rebirth of past trends

The Mom Jean 
L-R: Top Shop, Top Shop, BDG (available at Urban Outfitters)

 Boyfriend Jeans

Denim Culottes



Much to the displeasure of many, the Mom jean is back.
Like a Mom, these jeans just won't quit.
But we love ours moms for never giving up on us, 
perhaps the same can be said for this tenacious denim cut??!
Test this trend with a crop top
for authenticity

The boyfriend jean is casj and easy-going,
just like our boyfriends, right?! Right.
This cut is soft and slouchy
Dress them up with a pair of pumps 
for a night out

Culottes, the garment that hangs like a skirt
but are pants.
A heel is a must when sporting
these to avoid creating the illusion 
of stumpy, short stems.
Check out what one of our fave bloggers, The Man Repeller, says about
Culottes

Weigh in on the Spring / Summer denim trends
We want to know what you think!

Have a safe and stylish long weekend!

Much Love from,

or
wear socks & sandals.

Image Update

| Monday, May 12, 2014

It's that time of year...

A new season and time for a closet revamp!


How often do you look through your closet and say you have nothing to wear even though it's exploding at the seams! 

The closet clean


Donate

Go through your wardrobe and donate any garments that don’t fit, are ripped or torn, have any stains, or are simply outdated or unflattering.


If you haven’t worn it in a year donate


Organize

Organize your clothing by color and type.  This will allow you to see exactly what you have, and where there are holes so that when you’re shopping your purchases have a purpose.


Color code


Plan your wardrobe

With a detoxed and organized wardrobe, it’s time to take stock of what you have and what new outfits you can make by combining your existing clothes in new and exciting ways. Look through magazines for inspiration of the type of look/image you are going for.


Experiment with different and new combinations


Go Shopping

Now that you have identified what items you need to complete your wardrobe and update your look, shopping will be a breeze.

Having this plan in mind will help you to make more sound purchases and avoid buyer’s remorse.

Shop with focus and end goals in mind. Create a list or tear out pictures of items you are looking for so you don't lose focus.



Have a plan



And if you need some help that's what we are here for! Call us to hire one of out fabulous stylists who can come and help you through the process to be the best you you can be or sit in on our 'Image Update Seminars'!

Tis the season to closet clean!

All American Beauty meets All American Eyewear

| Friday, May 2, 2014

The name 'Karlie Kloss' has become 
a known moniker amongst fashion folk,
model maniacs, and beautiful-people-admirers.


Karlie in Balmain for The Last Magazine Spring/Summer 2014

No stranger to fighting for a cause,
 Karlie invaded the cookie jars
of those attending Fashion Night Out in NYC
with "Karlie's Kookies™".
A dairy free, wheat free treat
raising funds for hungry kids worldwide.



It seems there is not stopping Ms.Kloss
as she joins forces with eyewear extraordinaire
Warby Parker
Rumours from Vogue are swirling,
stating that the duo are set to create a capsule collection of 3,
1970's inspired, wire framed
sunnys.

Proceeds from the frames sold benefit
Edible Schoolyard NYC
"Changing the way children eat...For Life!"

Just another reason to love Karlie Kloss.
Like we needed another.
This girl stole our hearts
on the runway with her mesmerizing strut

Talking Trends

| Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Trends come and go each season. Here’s a taste of what’s happening this spring. 

Trends are pieces that you may not want to invest too much in but add to key wardrobe pieces you already own. Don’t feel you need to pick up every trend, just the ones that speak to you. 

These are a few of our favourites....and we may have accidentally bought one or two pieces while putting this blog together #jobhazzard


 Modern Pastels are one of this season’s biggest trends. This spring sees the return of sweet feminine pastel hues in streamlined fashion forward looks that take pastels far away from the stereotypical wedding attire. The way to rock this trend is to give it a little edge, think of texture and shape as seen below. Pair with a sheer crop top, try a trench coat dress or work a patent pastel piece in with your classics.





Florals are such a fun way to make a statement this spring. For those a little wary of the trend there are some pretty options that can be spruced up with a pop of color. For those wanting to seriously work it, there are some fabulous bold floral prints that can be mixed together to create a real wow factor or try the trend with a sweet print but an edgy shape if you’re looking for a little attention!






White is going head to toe creating a clean crisp vibe to brighten your look for the spring! There is something so stylish and chic about all white. Wide legged pants are being seen worked into this trend but this is one that you can put your own twist to just as many of the designers have.




Graphic monochromatic prints create a bold modern statement this spring. We are seeing all sorts of silhouettes popping up from feminine girly designs to strong sexy shapes. The great thing with this trend is that most of us have a black and white number tucked away in the closet and if not this is such and easy trend to incorporate into your regular attire.



Now go rummage through that closet and see what you can find!

Tis the season to go shopping


Stay tuned to our blog - weekly posts are coming your way

Much Love,
