Today I am enjoying my first, school-free day off. I have the doors of both balconies open (opposite sides of our apartment) a beautiful breeze is filling our place up with Spring air. Somehow, symbolically the fresh air is getting me excited to start a new chapter of my life. If you’ve read my previous post “Connect 2013“, you will know that last Monday was my year end showcase of my college Fashion Merchandising program. It was a huge success, […]
Happy Easter Weekend! We cannot believe how quickly this year is flying by. We love spring for a number of reasons. When it comes to fashion, pastels are always such a beautiful switch up from the dreary winter layers. Below are a few spring-y photographs from a Parisian themed tea party we staged for a photo-shoot. Hope the Easter Bunny is treating you well. Jennifer & Jesse
Saffron Road, a local boutique to the city of London hosted a party featuring Greta Constantine. The evening was filled with interesting people, shopping, drinks (one called Greta… the other Constantine), and the guests of honour, Stephen and Kirk, the Canadian designers themselves! Throughout the evening, models would be walking about the party, sporting Greta’s Spring 2013 collection (draw-dropping, attention to detail, beautiful). Below are a few pictures we snapped throughout the party, so lovely spending time with great people, […]

A golden year for me… in a few ways… but one way that particularly stands out was in accessories. I loved accessorizing with gold; however, I really wanted to switch it up for an eventful evening with a dash of silver. It was difficult at first to come across funky silver jewelry pieces, seeing as how gold is so “in” right now… but after two malls, and several boutiques, I was able to pull off the look I was striving […]

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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
