Fashion Friday: Such a Gem

Hello to the fashionably fabulous, here is another Fashion Friday 😉 Here were have a jazzed up casual look that has an eclectic, high fashion appeal. I love the jewel tones in the winter, and this outfit has such a rich palette blended with some clean and bright pastel colours. I like how these items are bit unexpectedly put together; a fanciful statement necklace with suede booties and voluminous top and bottom some how work together to create a covetable ensemble.

It is officially SWEATER WEATHER. But you don’t have to compromise style when you reach for a comfy pullover. Graphic, unique and fun jumpers are everywhere right now! Check out my fave picks and trends below:

Graphic Sweatshirts
From the galactic to historical to the biological realm, this trend is scientifically proven to be hot this season! 
Let your geek flag fly with these fun comic tributes. From Super Heros & Villains to the iconic pop art comic influence, these are a fun way to embrace your nerd pride!
The retrogamer in me could not pass these treasures up! Just a little nod to the 8bit world, snuggle up in one of these and bust out the NES system 😉
Florals are so diverse, ranging from sweet and girly to graphic and edgy. Look for inspiring colors and textures like quilting or lace for an extra girly touch.
Take a little trip through your day dreams and be inspired by these fantastic prints. Think mythical creatures and faraway lands for this trend 🙂

Fashion Friday: OOTD – Cozy Chic

OOTD - Cozy Chic
Happy October! Since things are cooling down, here is a cozy little autumn outfit based on what yours truly is wearing today!
I paired a skater skirt, thin belt with a burgundy knit for a cool weather-chic outfit. But it’s time to add the layers, some cool tights and an infinity scarf will help you brave the cold (my mummy crocheted a beautiful one for me!). I kept the accessories polished and classic with pearl posts and a knotted silver ring. Lastly, keep your tootsies warm with  a cute pair of wedge booties!
Enjoy 🙂

Fall Trends Inspired by Flare World Runway Tour

IMG_2240
This week I had the greatest pleasure of attending the Flare World Runway Tour fashion show in Vancouver! This was the first show I had ever been to and I was BEYOND excited, after obsessing for a week about outfit choices I dawned a red peplum top, black tulip skirt, tights, high black wedge booties and some gold accessories and headed out for an awesome girls night out. The cocktail hour was wonderful Tres Semme & Este Lauder were there doing impromptu hair, make-up and manis for the attendees. The girls and I gushed over everyone’s outfits (everyone was dressed to the nines!), the venue (Four Seasons baby!) and had a wonderful time sampling the many treats. From mango shooters, macaroons, caramel apples, to cotton candy and tiramisu, the spread was glorious!
Next, we headed to the Pacific Centre Atrium for a runway run-down of all the latest fall fashion trends. Yours truly was in the FRONT ROW! *stars in eyes* Here are some inspired collections by the Flare WRT 🙂 Enjoy!
Flare WRT Inspiration: Pastels
PASTELS: Don’t be fooled, these Easter egg hues are not just for Spring anymore! Baby pinks, mint, peach and sunshine yellow make a fresh statement for fall. Try pairing pastels with light neutrals for a cozy and feminine look.
Flare WRT Inspiration: Leather
LEATHER: This edgy trend lends is more moody and tough than the lovely pastels. Whether it s a leather dress or leather accents, these pieces have a sexier side to them. Go for unexpected shapes or accessories for an edgier look.
Flare WRT Inspiration: Plaid
PLAID: That’s right, we are all mad for plaid! The punk and grunge revival this season (leather too!) has brought some tantalizing tartan to our runways. Plaid can be very versatile depending on what it’s paired with: pair it some cute flats for a pretty, girly look or some tougher hardware (think studs!) for an edgier look.
Flare WRT Inspiration: Oversized Coats
OVERSIZED COATS: Voluminous shapes are the it outerwear trend this season. Be wary of the fit, you want volume but not in the wrong places. If you don’t think you can pull of this trend off, go for shapes that are more nipped at the waist.
Flare WRT Inspiration: Statement Flats
STATEMENT FLATS: Fun footwear adds a little whimsy to a more fall layered look. Look for bold details and colours like studs or print. Also, don’t be afraid to pair flats with some fun or colourful socks for an extra punch!
Flare WRT Inspiration: Novelty Bags
NOVELTY BAGS: Surprising details and crazy shapes lend a fantastic vibe to your fall wardrobe. This is a great way to experiment with shape and texture without being overwhelming. These novelty bags are also a great conversation piece and show off your quirkier side.
Thanks for taking a peek! Let me know what you think 🙂
