Think Pink; the Pink Coat Trend

August 21, 2013

This past week while at Zara I tried on a pale pink coat. I wasn’t sure if I was into the whole pink coat thing but turns out I am. I think it goes back to the mint green coat I almost bought at H&M last year. It was a great coat but I thought a bit expensive considering I found it at H&M so I decided to…

Still Hot; The Coatigan

August 20, 2013

Last year I wrote about a trend that was emerging out of the whole sweater coat style; The Coatigan. I had many people ask me about the term and how they had not heard of it but I swear it is a thing. I mean if the likes of Miranda Kerr is wearing them they must be a thing right?! Part cardigan, part coat, there is a bit…

Stripes on Stripes and a red cross body bag

August 14, 2013

Sometimes you have items in your closet for ages but one new piece can bring the whole thing together. I picked up this red cross body bag at Coco’s Closet on the weekend (Thank you NADIA!), and it just inspired this whole outfit. Since I can’t get enough of stripes this year pairing them just makes sense. One thing that you notice if you read alot of style…

For an everyday casual look and then a going out look.   Tibi Cami 2 Ways by toshopoholic featuring a slim fit leather jacket Then I said to myself “this is a super versatile…

Valentine’s Day in August

August 8, 2013

People often have Christmas in July parties but no other holiday really evokes the same feeling out of people that makes them want to celebrate twice a year. But when I put together this outfit I immediately thought it was Valentine’s day appropriate with the pink, white and red colour combination. You won’t catch me smiling in today’s post because I was actually quite annoyed when doing these…

Oxblood Do-over

August 7, 2013

Oxblood was THE colour for fall 2012. I mean did you not read about it everywhere? My post on the difference between Oxblood & Burgundy is still being found in Google a year later. The colour isn’t going anywhere for this fall although the name OXBLOOD might not be thrown around on every blog and magazine in the same way. I think it is one of the perfect…
