Slightly gaudy and definitely not understated, mixing prints push the boundaries of what it really means to match. This trend is a quintessential British-eccentric look, that first became popular in the early 2000's when costume designer Patricia Field styled Carrie Bradshaw from SATC in this iconic trend. The key to nailing this fashion-forward trend is using textured separates and mixing [...]
 
 
 
For fall 2015, the 70's trend continues to rise to the top of the fashion must-have list. Ponchos, capes and wraps ruled the runways and this one in bold autumn patchwork is the perfect topper for any occasion. Paired with a camel tunic sweater and waxed skinny jeans, this OOTD will take you for miles this cold-weather season. Accessorize with a suede fringe tote and snakeskin printed an[...]

The 70's are back in a BIG way this spring: fringe, jumpsuits, psychedelic prints, mules, wedges, florals... the list goes on and on. In this week's Style Series, I styled this trend using a navy strapless jumpsuit as the main focus. I transformed this jumpsuit using a lightweight cape, camel open-toe mules and an oversized suede fringe bag and circle sunnies. I added some gold jewellery to add[...]
 
 
 
The minimalist trend hit the runways in a BIG way this spring/summer. Stella McCartney, Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang and Givenchy are just a few of the stellar sporty-chic looks that strut runways all over the world. The simplest way to achieve this trend is to work with neutrals (easy enough right?!), and sport-inspired shapes. In this look, I layered boxy shapes over fitted silhouettes to crea[...]
 
 
 
Wedding, prom, and gala season are all upon us which means it's time to start shopping for those jaw-dropping dresses! St Laurent Centre has so many incredible stores that offer hundreds of dresses, no matter what the event is: Le Chateau, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Hudson's Bay, Melanie Lyne, and J Michaels, just to name a few! After a looooooong winter, I was elated to try on dresses with colour, cut-outs[...]
 
 
 
Belt it, wrap it, zip it, button it. No matter what your flavour is, St Laurent Centre has every coat style you can think of for spring! A trench is a solid staple for spring, but what I love about this one from BCBGMAXAZRIA is its unique shape and feminine silhouette. With its wide notched lapels and three-quarter length sleeve, this is a truly fresh perspective for a seasoned veteran. Next[...]
 
 
 
Spring is officially upon us and this week's Style Series is all about loud floral prints done in unique fabrics and styles. Let's face it - floral's are nothing new when it comes to spring fashion, but what's fresh and interesting is how they're being done. In this look, we've used a sweatshirt style in a neoprene fabric, pairing it with a matching mini-skirt. More than that, I also combined anot[...]
 
 
 
Spring is around the corner and it seems as though we might finally be out of the polar vortex, and to celebrate, we thought we'd highlight one of our favourite spring trends that's sprung: denim on denim! This trend hit the runways last spring and it ain't stoppin' any time soon. It's a great look for any occasion, all depending on which style of denim you choose, along with what accessories y[...]
