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.

A Saint of a Sale

Photo: AllSaints When AllSaints made their Canadian debut in Yorkdale Mall a couple of years ago, it was a dream come true for me. The British retailer’s wares are completely up my alley; a little bit edgy, directional designs, quality fabrics and construction at a mid-range price point (somewhere between fast fashion & designer). The line is so me, it’s a bit frightening, and I always see some men’s pieces that I want to get my stylish husband. Although the target demographic for AllSaints is the 18-35 year old set, it appeals to women of all ages, and looks great on them too! The AllSaints Mid Season Sale is on, in store and online (free standard shipping in Canada and the US), so I’ve rounded up my favourite sale pieces along with some of their regular priced items, and a few items from other stores, to show you what I would coordinate them with. All prices shown are in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise specified. Click on photos to link to the corresponding websites. THE ROCKER LOOK   THE DRESSY LOOK   THE …

Pretty in Pink

Michael Kors Miranda Leather Extra-Small Tote $795 USD Today, I fell in love…..As I walked into Michael Kors, something bright caught my eye. I beelined over to the perfect bag, for me at least! Hot pink, just small enough, just big enough for my essentials, just light enough! For someone who wears mostly black and grey head to toe, including fuchsia in my outfit is my favourite way to add colour. It wakes up my wardrobe and exudes energy. Below, a few of my favourite hot pink items; lipstick “Show Orchid” from MAC, a Joe Fresh sweater I picked up for a steal last winter, one of my Victoria Secret bras and my Kate Spade iPhone cover.  One of my all time favourite lip colours Show Orchid by MAC $19 CAD To buy product, click on this link I wear this Joe Fresh sweater when it’s ugly, cold and grey outside. I found it on sale for about $5.00. It’s size XL which gives me the perfect oversized sweater look. My Victoria Secret bra that no …
