Which Pom Pom Slides are YOU?

February 9, 2018
pom pom slides

I love an embellished sandals. But this summer I am thinking pom pom slides are in order. These mules have a very boho vibe but work as a versatile option that could go with dresses, trousers and jeans. I picked out two pairs of pom pom slides that at this point are my favourites but are also at two different price points. At the high end are the…

The Winter Olympics are back and starting in just a couple of days. After all the controversy of the 2016 summer Olympics in Brazil it will be interesting to follow what is going on in South Korea beyond the team standings! I do follow the Winter Olympics more closely than summer. Partially because Canada tends to fair betting in the events but also because I personally am more…

I have never been one to closely follow the Royals. I wasn’t too phased when Kate and William tied the knot. Canadians are a bit more into the whole Royal Family due to our country’s closeness but I grew up in a time when their influence over this country was greatly diminished. My Grandma still loves to follow the goings on but I think in general my generation…

I have been a fan of the teddy coat look for years but somehow have never acquired a teddy coat of my own. I guess I always had something else that was more desirable at the time. I did pick up this faux shearling coat last year but I think this year I am going to pull the trigger on a true teddy coat. While some of these…

mr. and mrs. italy parka dupes

Whether you have heard or Mr and Mrs Italy Parkas or not you can agree that they take something fairly regular looking and make them look super luxurious and glam. Their parkas are instantly recognizable for their brightly coloured fur linings that take an ordinary parka and kick it up a notch. As much as I think these parkas are to die for their price tags are out…

Neutral sandals like these are something that can easily be worn with everything from jeans to sundresses. The Hermes Oran Sandal is a luxury sandal that has been super popular this summer. The neutral colour and the H motif that is subtle but there all the same. But at $810 they are quite an expensive simple leather sandal. But there is a fantastic Hermes Oran Sandal dupe that…
