Green Dream

I just posted on Instagram a Pantone mood board for the colour Green Flash! One of Pantone’s 10 top colours for 2016. Not usually a green fan, I wore a green plaid uniform in high school, need I say more, but at the moment I’m having a mini love affair with the shamrock shade. What’s inspiring me right now.

Bohemian Glamour

Barneys editorial photos by Jai Odell The Boho spirit that enamoured the fashion world this summer continues to inspire and strongly influence coming fall fashions. Envision romantic floral chiffon and feminine lace, paired with tweed, shearling and suede for rich textural juxtaposition. You can continue to get lots of millage out of your summer pieces with some accessorizing. Wear your little white dress as we transition to cooler temperatures by throwing on a leather jacket and adding over-the-knee boots. Don a pair of wide-legged trousers with your peasant blouse and add a cape or sleeveless vest, you get the idea. Although my personal style is more edgy New York than hippy L.A., I do have a soft spot for Boho Chic after living in Los Angeles for a few years (visit my Pinterest page ). Inspired by the Chloé pre-fall lookbook on the Barneys New York website, I have culled pieces at various price points so anyone on any budget can easily put together these free spirit looks.

5 Fab Wear-to-Work Outfits

These next-level wear-to-work outfits won’t just score you high points with the boss, they’re affordable and fashionable. Every item in this post is under $100.00, available at Zara. The Spanish retailer has added a new category to their collection, Wear to Work. F.Y.I. not all of the looks I’ve put together here are from their new category. I’ve created five fabulous office appropriate looks for fall; borrowed from the boys, the minimalist, loose fit dressing, creatively cool and classically chic. Below each look are the items I suggest you wear with it. All descriptions have click-throughs to Zara’s website. A piece of advice, if you’re able, always try Zara items on in store, as their sizes can be tricky. If you fall in love with an item and don’t see it on the floor, ask a sales associate if they have one in stock. If they don’t have your size in store, order it online. Zara ships super fast (I received my last order in under 24 hours!), and if your order is $50.00 or over, shipping is free, and all …

Your Fall Fashion Guide

I know, I don’t want to admit it either, but fall is fast approaching. The only consolation for me is that fall is my favourite fashion season. I love the rich colours, textures and layers. But with the multitude of trends on offer this coming season, its a bit difficult to navigate fashion right now. Truth be told, it’s as if everything and anything is trending now; Goth, Victorian, Mod, 70’s, 80’s, bohemian, minimalism, lace, fur, suede, capes, military and more! Runway collections are styled over-the-top, conveying a strong statement to catch the attention of photographers and fashion editors. These theatrical looks don’t always translate well for the real world. I’ve combed through the designer collections, breaking them down to the most wearable styles, to compile a comprehensive guide for you. For each trend, I’ve included two runway, and one real-way examples of how to wear it. I have also put together how to get the look, with shoppable click-throughs. All prices are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise listed. 70’s – Suede, leather/pleather, capes, wide legged pants, denim, patchwork.
