I’m not sure who is reading my fashion dreams there at Lord & Taylor’s 424Fifth, but this entire new collection is insanely perfect. This sweater…I can’t even… I was at a loss of words when I found it,  which is exclusively available at Hudson’s Bay. Half leopard and half plaid – I’m not even sure how this came to be. Oh, 424Fifth, we are just getting started my friend!

At the start of each season, I am always on the hunt for the perfect new dress that will become my favourite for the season. I look for something that fits well with a conservative/work appropriate elements (coverage of bra straps, not too deep of a v-neck, and the cut to be just above or below the knee). This season I’ve been able to find everything I was looking for with this amazing dress from eShakti, an online retailer that specializes in customizing those very details. It’s crazy to have a dress fit so well without trying it on and getting it adjusted! With a selection of adorable prints and styles eShakti.com has a great dress for every occasion and I can’t wait to see the next one I’ll pick up!

Since joining ClearlyContacts.ca as one of their style ambassadors earlier this year, I’ve completely fallen in love with wearing my frames. These amazing Ray-Bans have become my newest staple, and are helping to define my spring style. Glasses can add so much instant glam to every outfit and this spring I look forward to sharing with you how glasses can enhance your style. Can we talk about Cat Eyes #monkeythekitty <3

Pastels are essential, basically every spring, so investing in amazing pieces is a must! Fashion Magazine asked their style panel this week how to update this colour-way for Spring/Summer 2014.  On the runway we saw designers show the look monochromatically, but I’ve styled my look to be a bit more wearable by pairing an amazing powder blue outfit from Topshop Canada with a petal pink robe.  Here is what I said.

Fashion Magazine got all excited about spring’s trends and asked their style panel to talk about their favourite things for the up coming season. My favourite trend seen throughout the runway for this spring/summer is all about the artistic touch. Here is what I said.
