Fall is coming to an end – sadly – and as we welcome the freezing cold winter into our lives, lets just enjoy some awesome pieces of fashion that rocked this last season with some street style lovin’!
This is probably one of the first H&M collaborations that I am super excited about!
Anna Dello Russo has designed an exclusive accessories line for H&M – but you already knew that. The limited-edition collection is launching this Thursday, October 4th!
If you haven’t seen the collection yet, I suggest that you do so immediately!
The one thing I love about the collection are its colours. The main colour scheme is Tiffany blue and gold. But she mixes it up with green and orange as well. Oh, and the pieces are adorned with gorgeous reptiles and a zebra, which was a neat touch in my opinion.
Thousands of people lined up outside the Metro Toronto Convention Centre today for Oprah’s Lifeclass | the Tour. The lineup went around at least three blocks. It was insane!
I left my house at approximately 5:30 a.m. to make it downtown in time to pick up my tickets at 6:30 a.m., since I won a contest. I was seated by 7:30 a.m.
I had decent seats, however I couldn’t see the stage which sucked. So I had to settle for the screens that were put up but I was honestly just lucky to even be there. The tour was completely sold out and so I decided to join a bunch of contests and won the secondary prize from Canadian Tire.
But then something magical happened. I wasn’t even expecting it.
Oprah Winfrey walks out from the side door which was right beside me. I was completely speechless as she walked up to me and took my hand and said “Hi. Thank you for coming!” And I just stood there saying, “OMG OMG OMG!” And then I thought to myself, what would I say to her? I mean, I have a lot to say but in the moment, I just couldn’t think of anything. My brain froze for a good 30 seconds there and I thought I was gonna pass out.
Thank you to Canadian Tire for the free tickets! This was an experience of a lifetime for me. Meeting Oprah has been a dream of mine since as long as I can remember. So grateful right now!
The bright greens, oranges and yellows make simple dressing look glam. Stick to no more than three shades when colour-blocking and to avoid looking tacky and over-the-top. Unless you’re Lady Gaga. Then all is forgiven.
As for the PRINTS, they are vibrant, swirling, styled-head-to-toe patterns that sashayed down the spring 2012 runways. Love the oversize florals, mirror like geometry shapes and the futuristic prints.
But if bold and bright is not your thing, go for a low-key, ladylike vibe with sweet sorbet shades and pastel hues.
These Alexander Wang Dakota lace-up boots are a must have this season. I love the subtle tangerine shade which can be paired beautifully with pastels.
One of my favourite looks this season is the tie-dye jeans. Adds a little extra something for those who don’t wear a lot of colour. And the pairing with the neon shoe lace and a tangerine purse? Love it!
I have a love for collared shirts and blouses. That’s basically what the majority of my wardrobe consists of. I like them because they’re simple yet fancy enough to wear to a party and casual enough to wear to an interview or a meeting. They just work!
The spiked studs, the beading, and the sequins are just phenomenal!
Here are a few I picked out from Zara!
The blouse with the sequinned collar is classic! I love how it’s neatly embellished on rather than just bunched all over.
Price – $69.90
The beaded Peter Pan collar is one of my favourites. It’s a lot more feminine and can easily be added on to any shirt or blouse.
Price – $59.90
Price – $119.90
This blouse with appliqué and lace is just precious. I love the Peter Pan collared outline embellished with lace. Effortlessly beautiful.
Price – $69.90
I have been meaning to add this skirt to my wardrobe but don’t know which one to get!
Here are the three that I found at Zara:
Price – $99.90
Price – $59.90
Price – $69.90
If you take a look at my wardrobe, I don’t own a lot of colour which tends to be rather boring. But I have recently fallen in love with prints. They totally add that extra spunk to a boring old white blouse or a cream chiffon skirt.
If you’re interested in purchasing some prints to add to your wardrobe, check out the Marni for H&M collection.
Just came across some gorgeous Alexander McQueen!
A snake skin knuckle box clutch? Yes please! I love the gold tone trim and snake, skull & horn carry detail at front.
If you’re interested in purchasing any of these products, I found this awesome new website that sells these and many other designer products like Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Jeffrey Campbell to name a few, at a discounted rate.
