Animal sweaters

August 31, 2012

Ever since I saw this JCREW Hen sweater I have been contemplating the animal sweater trend. No not animal print, this isn’t a tiger or leopard print we are talking about but an animal motif, like a dog or a wolf on a sweater. Clockwise from the top: Wallis Grey Cat Sweater, Keen Up Your Act Cardigan, Peter Jensen Fox Intarsia Crew Neck, Embellished puckered wool-blend cardigan, Intarsia…

Joe Fresh Fall 2012 Collections

August 30, 2012

I was out last night at the LouLou Magazine Joe Fresh Shopping event at the Queen & Portland Joe Fresh in Toronto. Usually I turn around at the first sign of a line up because lets face it I could go there today and be line free but I wanted to check out what was new in store for fall and the line to get into the shopping…

Hudson Cabaret; Fall Denim

August 29, 2012

Last night I was part of a group of Toronto Fashion peeps that got to preview the new Hudson Cabaret denim line for Fall 2012. The launch was in conjunction with Flare Magazine so lots of fashion insiders and then me. The event was held at Parlour which was a great spot for a more intimate night of chatting and checking out the latest Hudson denim. The girls…

One Dress Two Looks; short dress = tunic

August 27, 2012

One of the drawbacks of online shopping for items you haven’t seen in real life is they don’t alway live up to your expectations. Case in point the dress below. It is shorter than I thought it would be on me. I fell for the print because I thought it was an autumnal take on the florals we have been seeing all spring and summer but basically the…

August 22, 2012

I have said it before but Isabel Marant can do no wrong. One of the styles that is totally accessible and has been going strong for a few seasons now are the suede ankle boots otherwise known as the Isabel Marant Dicker Boots. These suede ankle boots have inspired all sorts of copy cats or maybe they have simply drawn my attention to how wearable this style really…

Slow Transition

August 20, 2012

August is my favourite month of the summer. It is less humid than June or July and you can transition fall pieces into your wardrobe albeit slowly. August at the cottage is even better for doing this; it is always about 10 – 15 degrees cooler than the city so by the evening warmer clothing is a must. Outfit details: Brown knit top c/o Freda’s, Denim Paige jeans,…

Hanging at the Mall

August 16, 2012

Sometimes you take what you can get. And when I had an opportunity to go out to Yorkdale Mall on the weekend, all by myself,  I took it. Usually I avoid the mall on the weekends, especially in the afternoon because parking is a nightmare and it is sooooooooo busy. Still I got to go by myself and through the week I would have two little ones to…
