Although today is not your typical fall day, it still doesn’t fix my fashion dilemma… the lack of a staple fall jacket. I am in desperate need of a nice jacket that I can wear out, to work, wear on top of a blazer,that keeps me warm, that is also slightly water proof and that is under $300… is that too much to ask? I’m on the hunt for this unicorn jacket and I’m hoping that my longstanding favourite coat company Mackage will step up to the challenge. I would be proud to boast any of these jackets as I am gaga for their bold zippers, large collars and sexci leather tailoring that create an instant BABE silhouette, and take any outfit from zero to hero, 1-second flat. This MTL based company knows whats up and thats why they can charge one months rent for one of their beautiful designs. Am I willing to make the investment? Yes. Just please find me so I can stop wearing my army cargo jacket to work that soaks up rain like a dish sponge.
Suggestions are welcomed and appreciated in advance!
If you havent heard about Nasty Gal until now you may or may not be living under a rock. This online boutique total rocks and has transformed from an ebay page to a full blown fashion frenzy. It has funky, edgy, trend-inspiring looks for super cheap (the only problem is us Canadians have to pay duty on all orders which kind of blows, however worth it!). This sassy company has stayed true to its rude girl roots and the CEO, LA homegurl Sophia Amoruso, keeps on pushing street fashion forward so quickly its hard to keep up! This company is growing at 500% annually which means big things for the future. Watch out for their first catalog and magazine ads to be launched this month!
As Fall is fast approaching, we are getting giddy with excitement to dust off our favourite denim, boots and cutie blazers. No doubt our warebrodes will need a few new pieces to keep us updated on all the trends and we are excited to check out two collections that are set to release this fall for Target and H&M. As we are huge supporters of affordable, fashionable clothing, these companies have partnered up with two heavy hitters in the industry to design some seriously wicked clothing, at prices that young hooligans (such as ourselves) can justifilably purchase without serious remorse.
1. (See picture above) The very talented French designer Isabel Marant collection for H&M is set to release November 14th worldwide. I imagine it will sell out very quickly as her boho-chic style is so effortless and elegant and big on attitude. Very excited to get my hands on something, maybe even the silky slip dress above… fingers crossed.
2. Second is Philip Lim’s line for Target. This line is available to view online however the merchandise is not for sale until September 15th. These pieces are clean, simple and PERFECT for work. The clothes are idiot proof because they were made with such a small colour pallet, that everything actually goes with everything. Loving the colour blocking look below and this emerald green is super sassy. Definitely worth checking out!
One of the many joys of working on the boarder of Parkdale is all the fantastic shops that I can hit on my lunch break and Common Sort is by far one of my favourites. Don’t be deceived by it’s small entrance on Queen St., this place is huge and has so many treasures just waiting to be loved again. I’ve been looking for some causal walking boots for quite some time now so when I stumbled upon these Sendra boots (yah, the ones that are handmade in Italy) for a mere $40 I felt like I hit the jack pot and after putting them on, I would be happy if I never had to take them off my feet. I also picked up a cute top for work for $16 and can’t wait to work it into my fall wardrobe.
Fall is a great time to get creative with clothing and these prices and selection can’t be beat! One weekend soon, go and check out the store and if you’re in the neighborhood, might as well pick up a taco or two at Grand Electric if your intense shop-a-thon leaves you craving some good eats.
I am a little fringe obsessed. Though frige looks the most smashing in the fall, there
multiple ways to wear this fabulous style year round and look like a rock star. Leather
and suedes are a little heavy for these hot months, but lighter cottons, bathing suits and accessories look dynamite and are easy to find all over the place (TopShop, H&M, Zara).
Summer is upon us, thus music festivals are top of mind. These events host such a wide variety of musical talent so it is virtually impossible to go home unsatisfied or unimpressed. We’ve heard the past weekend at Bonnaroo was amazing and full with fringe, hippies, top notch performances (including Sir Paul McCartney himself) and we hope to make the trip to Tennessee next year!
