This isn’t news to anyone- just take a peak in any store and you will observe that stripes are “in”! I must say this is a great look- that isn’t just great right now, it is timeless. Sometimes we get our minds set that if celebrities start to wear an outfit that has a specific detail for a couple weeks, all of a sudden that ’look’ is considered a trend. We think it is ”in” right now, and “out” tomorrow… this is not true when it comes to stripes. Anyways, check out […]
Sienna Miller always looks amazing- I have a major fashion-crush on her. Could it be the fact that this fashion icon dresses and styles herself? Most definitely! Being your own stylist and being successful at it is a rare trait to have in Hollywood, especially when celebrities have amazing resources such as stylist Rachel Zoe. Sienna always seems to know how to pull an outfit together perfectly, and of course how to start a trend all on her own! In […]
The maxi-skirt isn’t just for the “bo-ho” girls anymore, this fashion statement has been seen on countless celebrities, and more importantly on the fashion runway. I’ve collected some pictures from all over the internet (by no means did I take any of these pictures). They give you the jist of what i’m talking about, and a couple of different ways to wear the maxi-skirt. I used to think that a long skirt should be kept out of your everday-wear and only worn on special occassions- but […]
Last week I posted about Winnipeg-friendly stores that carry fashion pieces in the trend of “Romantic“. This week the trend is “minimalist”, in my opinion, this is a classic look, not really a trend, but regardless we’ve sure been seeing a lot of it on the 2011 Spring runway. I’ve found some fantastic minimalistic merchandise that are all Winnipeg-shopping friendly! If you’re really wanting to execute the minimalistic look, be sure to wear extremely nude colours on your face. If you’re still […]
I had the pleasure of interviewing the boutique owner of Mad About Style, Nicola Loewen. She is such a delight- and so is her beautiful boutique! It is filled with amazing feminine pieces for your wardrobe. This video gives you a look inside of Mad About Style Boutique – and the genius behind the name. I’m positive that after watching this video you will feel the urge to grab a Starbucks and wander on over to see first hand how […]
Gwyneth Paltrow looked stunning in this simplistic nude coloured Tom Ford dress. She was wearing this little number to the “Adam Rapoport Debuts the New Bon Appetit” in New York on April 15th.

Ta ta for now!

Renée Zellweger absolutely POPPED on the red carpet in Milan for the Tommy Hilfiger Limited Edition Bag Launch. She looked stunning in the “Tommy Red Luxury Trench” by Tommy Hilfiger- and glammed up her feet in Jimmy Choo shoes. Winnipeg women might substitute the Jimmy Choo’s for rubber boots at the moment… but when in Milan rock the Jimmy’s! Renée’s make up was not over the top- just the perfect amount of glow, with an easy going pulled back hairstyle. […]
It was another cool and damp afternoon in Winnipeg, but when it came to fashion, the outcome was not so miserable. The chilly weather allowed for many outdoor shoppers to wear their winter clothing. There is irony to be found in Winnipeg Spring shopping. Display windows show off colorful, floral prints in tops and dresses. For locals, these tempting fashions go beyond realism and are somewhat of a distant dream. Our world consists of splashing around in deep, muddy potholes, […]
Aloha- here are a few tribal/ethnic looks that are easy to come across, and wont break the bank… (yes all these shops are within Canada… better yet WINNIPEG!) I highly recommend NOT wearing all of these options together- select one of these bold prints and be sure to wear neutral colours with it- it’ll make your look POP- drawing just enough attention to your tribal splurge! Billabong-”DRENCHED”-$20.00 Aldo- “LAMPE” -$60.00 Billabong-”MOXIE”-$45.00 Aldo-”PEKIN”-$30.00 Mad About Style- “ STATEMENT RINGS’-$19.00 Forever 21- “ETHNIC PRINT CHIFFON […]
Unfortunately, this is why Forever 21, H&M, and Zara don’t cut it: High fashion is undeniable, brands such as Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, & Giorgio Armani remind us that we are not celebrities… I must say though, God bless the stores in our local malls that sell us the “look-a-likes” (or so they say) of these top iconic fashion names… it may not be designer, but in our own social circle we can feel like our own celebrity. I […]
One of our very own, Olena Zylak, is a proud Canadian and Award Winning designer who is taking the Canadian fashion world by storm, one knit at a time. Recently, I had the pleasure of connecting with Olena to talk about some of her accomplishments and to answer a few of my many questions. Olena’s work has been discovered and worn by noted celebrities (Prince, Juliette Lewis, Natalie Cole, and Olivia Newton-John), but she also takes pride in making her pieces very accessible to the public. Magazines […]
Malin Akerman looked so hot in this Vivienne Westwood cocktail dress– there is something about this careless-sexy hair and dark eyes that I just love. The dress itself can pull the ‘roll out of bed look’ right off with complete and utter sexy-glam. She was wearing this look to the Los Angeles Vivienne Westwood boutique opening, along with other stars such as Marilyn Manson, Kristin Davis, Mischa Barton… and many more! Out of Vogues top ten dressed for April 4th, 2011- […]
Out of Vogues top ten best dressed- dated March 28th, 2011. I wasn’t loving the choices Vogue had posted up on their website for this past week of top ten best dressed, but if I had to choose a look I’d say Alexa Chung, she looked fresh and pretty in Korea wearing this innocent looking lilac dress. This look was an extremely appropriate for the 2011 Mulberry fashion show, due to the fact the dress, tights & were designed by […]
