When I first saw the Stella Lace dress from Banana Republic, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to pull it off. I tried it on and I loved it! It hugs the figure perfectly and the lace is oh so feminine, the perfect dress to take you from day to evening. Here’s how I wear my dress. Continue Reading
We’re only about 6 weeks away from Christmas and I thought I should put my wishlist online for anyone who wants to be my secret Santa! I’ve looked around and made a list of things that I want, some are pretty achievable and some are well, a wish! There are only 17 items on the list at the moment and as we get closer to Christmas eve I add my last 3 items. So here it goes….
That’s all for now! Can’t wait till Christmas to see what I got under the tree….
“What does luxury mean today? Can luxury be exclusive and democratic at the same time? How can we translate the essence of luxury to a wider audience? The world around us is changing rapidly and I find myself asking these questions more and more. The designer’s work is usually tailored to a very small group of people, but the collection for H&M was about trying to translate the dream of luxury to everyone. It was almost like going back to school for me.”- Alber Elbaz, artistic director of Lanvin
The wait is finally over, we saw the anticipated Lanvin+H&M collection, and we love it! The collaboration between the luxury designer and H&M was to bring the look of luxury to a mass audience and Elbaz has achieved that with interesting colorful designs. Bold floral patterns on mini dresses or one shoulder dresses with puff sleeves and a big ballerina dress fit for any party is just a few of our favorite pieces in the collection.
Here are some of our favorite pieces that wants us want to lineup at the H&M stores on November 20th! (Stores carrying this line will be open at 8am)
I’m not a big fan of faux-fur but this little vest has been in my mind since I saw it at the preview. I think I really have to lineup on Saturday morning for it and maybe a fun Parisian inspired T, and some fun accessories. I want it all!!!
The men’s collection designed by Lanvin’s men’s designer Lucas Ossendrijver, bringing the classic tuxedo look from night to day wear. I specially loved the white tuxedo jacket and the tailored jogging pants trimmed with grosgrain. Continue Reading
I’m always looking out for bags, everyday bags, work bags or little ones for a night out. Right now my obsession is going towards brown bags for work. I found a few options so far, but I’m still looking!
Clicking on each image to take a better look.
I found this bag on net-a-porter.com when I was on the site to check out new Spring 2010 collections.
I absolutely love this bag. The neutral color would go with everything in my wardrobe and add a little rock ‘n’ roll edge to all my outfits. I love bags like this – a little different, with a bit of attitude. Alexander McQueen did a good job of summing up his energy and representing it in a little bag form.
The Alexander McQueen Faithful Satchel retails for $1450 USD. Sigh. Really, really tempting since I got my bonus from work (yay!) but I may be going on a trip so I must behave.
If I see anyone carrying this bag I will turn green with envy. Sigh.

I love this beautiful handbag.
I was downtown today at The Bay on Queen Street where they have relaunched ”The Room” – a couture boutique within the store. It was my first visit since the relaunch and I was interested to see what labels and designers that they had selected to showcase. I know that The Room is an attempt for The Bay to get back into the premier fashion scene but personally, I wasn’t blown away by the space or the merchandise.
I did, however, find this amazing Be & D handbag. I’d seen it in magazines and on websites but never in person.
It retails for $1495 USD so it will be more in CAD. Sigh. So in love.
I am hoping that somehow it will just arrive on my doorsteps if I wish hard enough.
