Street Style Look Book: Olive It! (Mostly)

It might not be all black everything, but this week beckons a wave of lovely ladies who are quite keen on giving us a lil’ colour lesson. Olive (and variants of olive) incorporate their way into a plethora of different looks, adding yet another unconventional hue to our sartorial summer palette. Icona Pop said it best – and although the phrase might be tried and true…we really do love “olive” it. Heh heh. read more…

Trends That Should End: 2013 Edition


Can you believe that we’ve already surpassed the halfway mark of 2013? Man, time flies. With that in mind, it’s only natural to want to take a look at the majestical situations fashion has brought us in the past year… focusing on the trends that filled the pages of magazines and shopping bags alike. With another year under our belts, perhaps we are a little wiser, and can carefully edit some of the previous so-called ~trendy~ choices that we may have succumbed to over the past few months. Here are some suggestions of trends to say goodbye to by the end of 2013, and some things to maybe (possibly?) replace them! read more…

Dressing Like Your Favourite Fruit


Eating your daily servings of fruit can be hard (sadly for me, Fruit Loops don’t count), but dressing like them is easier and also a lot more fun! Whether you want to be a watermelon, an orange, a pineapple even, it is all fair game, and summer is just the season for it! read more…

It's Chambray, Hombre!

The nice thing about being a lady (besides everything) is that we can take bits and pieces from our fellow men’s wardrobes and turn them into something completely new. Take the chambray shirt for example. It’s light, it’s casual, it’s versatile and it’s necessary. Inspired by the early 1900’s US Naval uniforms, this classic men’s work-shirt has now been transformed into a spring/summer favorite that us gals know how to ~werrrk~ without the work. You know what I mean? Just take a gander: read more…

Little Black Booties: The Official Shoe of Sprinter (Read: Spring/Winter)

 Photo: Fashiontoast

Is it that awkward time of the year again? The period when choosing appropriate footwear is the most difficult decision you have to make in the morning? I mean…is it snowing? Is the salt gone? Is it too cold to rock no-socks? Wouldn’t life just be easier if there was an official “winter/spring” transition shoe? Are there too many questions and not enough answers?!

Well. Let me remind you of something called the ~little black ankle boot~; something we appreciate an infinite and unquantifiable amount. Able to be dressed up AND down, while still giving you the opportunity to sneak socks in (if need be), LBAB’s are not too high, not too low, generally around a 8.0 on the comfort scale, and versatile like it’s nobody’s business. So if you don’t own a pair, get yourself over to a mall immediately, because these guys are going to be your BFF over the next month while you battle these awful transition days. read more…
