As a huge fan of Canadian luxury label VAWK, I am super excited to share that designer Sunny Fong is collaborating with eBay on a very special capsule collection launching on August 12th (available to September 15th)! The limited edition collection will consist of 7 gorgeous pieces, all priced under $120! Knowing how pricey Sunny’s VAWK designs are, I quite literally jumped for joy upon hearing how affordable this collab is. Picking up a couple of VAWK for eBay pieces is now firmly on my fall calendar.
So tell me, are you excited about this Canadian collab? Which piece(s) will you be buying?
Price list and item descriptions are after the jump.

Is it me, or have Zara lookbooks lost their effectiveness? After seeing these shots, I could only focus my attention on the printed/brightly-coloured pieces, losing all interest in the plain ones. Why is that? Obviously, the simpler pieces are less eye-catching, but I think if they were styled and/or shot differently, I could just as easily be attracted to them…even if they look less flashy. Perhaps it’s because most photos do not display the entire look, but bits and pieces? Also…where are the shoes?!
Having said that, Zara is still one of my go-to websites to check for cool new arrivals, and that won’t stop anytime soon…I just wish their lookbooks were more exciting. Too much to ask?
What do you think of Zara’s May 2013 Lookbook? Do you find it effective? Share in the comments.

Sometimes I wonder if I should just rename this blog Diane Kruger Style Blog and call it a day. As much as I try to scale back on Diane photos, I can never resist – she’s just so damn stylish!
Anyway…here’s Diane and
Pacey Joshua Jackson at a Prabal Gurung event in LA, looking impossibly cool and sexy. Love them, that is all. Basically, this post was just an excuse to publish yet another adorable photo of my fave Hollywood couple. Enjoy!

Ever since The Bay revamped their Signature Collection a couple of years ago, I’ve been obsessed. The lovely combination of green, red, yellow, blue, and white stripes is a perfect way to add a touch of Canadiana to any outfit (or home), and this spring, the brand has added new pieces to their usual line-up. On my wishlist is a striped Evans Tray ($95) for my coffee table, the striped Isabella Maxi ($85), and the adorable Eggie Egg Cups ($20). Super cute, non?
There’s a ton of new Hudson’s Bay Collection pieces available on The Bay’s website – these are just a taste of what’s out there. So which pieces are your fave? Share in the comments!

I’ve had these boyfriend jeans for what seems like forever, and you know what? They are still in style! Le bf hates them with a passion…probably because they are so beaten up, and aren’t the most flattering jeans out there (in his opinion), but to me – they are perfect. I mean, what’s not to love? They are comfy, and go with pretty much anything and everything. This, my friends, is what I call a keeper.
What about you? Do you like boyfriend jeans? Would you ever wear them? Let me know in the comments.

Amazing news, you guys! Designer Phillip Lim is collaborating with Target on a Fall collection to launch on September 15, 2013…and it will be available in Canada! Amazing, right?!
“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said Lim. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is modern and chic, but still very accessible.”
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target will feature a range of apparel and accessories, including bags and various travel pieces, ranging in price from $19.99-$299.99 with most items under $49.99, and I seriously can’t wait! So happy that we finally won’t have to trek to the states to do some designer collab shopping. Now, excuse me, while I go and freeze my credit card in a block of ice…to be defrosted in September!

When the temperatures finally hit twenties last week, I didn’t know what to do with myself! All of my summer clothes were (and still are) packed away in a multitude of boxes along with summer sandals, and all I had lying around were a few recent purchases and mostly closed-toe shoes. After some rummaging, this is what I ended up pulling together – a Macy’s maxi that I picked up in New York in February (worn with my fave leather jacket in the morning when it was still chilly, and without during the day). And though I was initially hesitant to wear pointy-toe shoes with a maxi dress, I think this silver pair actually works. Disaster averted!

This year’s Met Gala theme was “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”, and since so many of the celebs in attendance nailed it, I couldn’t simply post my fave looks and be done with it. This time, I chose to bring you not only my fave looks, but also the runners-up, and the headscratchers all in one post.
Let’s start with my faves. I loved the ornate Dolce and Gabbana dress on Katy Perry, the grand headpiece on SJP, the elegant Margiela on Gwen Stefani, the stunning, but decidedly NOT punk Givenchy gown on Rooney Mara, and an orange moomoo-like goodness on Ashley Olsen. None of those looks screamed punk to me, but I found these dresses to be interesting, fashion-forward, and gorgeous too. Well, SJP’s panty-flashing Giles gown wasn’t exactly my type, but if anyone could’ve pulled it off it’s her.
Apart from my top 5, I enjoyed so many other looks! From Giovanna Battaglia gilded head-to-toe goodness, to Solange Knowles looking lovely in a Kenzo gown that was perhaps a tad too casual for the Met, but beautiful nonetheless, to Emma Watson in a very sexy Prabal Gurung…there was no shortage of fashion porn at this year’s gala. Some celebs decided to don simple LBDs to the event, which in my opinion was a total waste (I’m looking at you, Michelle Williams), but others made up for it with punk hair (Miley Cyrus), and studs galore (looking gorgeous, Sienna Miller!).
All in all, I loved this year’s fashion offerings. I hate wading through a million photos of boring outfits, and this year there weren’t too many.
So now it’s your turn! Which celebs brought their A-game to the 2013 Costume Institute Gala, and which crashed and burned? Share your opinions in the comments!

Last week was a crazy one, and my blog posting schedule took a hit…I didn’t attend any previews, parties, or launches, choosing to deal with some crazy stressful life stuff instead. But when I learned that Michael Kors would be stopping by his new Bloor St boutique, I knew I couldn’t miss it…no matter how busy I was!
At the party, the designer danced the night away to the beats played by the gorgeous Alexandra Richards (clad in Kors, of course), autographed a couple of his bags for the awe-struck customers, and mingled with the attendees and staff members of the boutique. Full of energy and always with that toothy grin at the ready, Kors was sure fun to observe, and my friend Sharon and I even got to grab a pic with our fave Project Runway ex-judge before he drove away into the night. Not bad for a Wednesday. Not bad at all.
After the designer’s departure, the crowd thinned out, and I actually got to check out the store, which was bright and airy, and stocked to the brim with neon bags, pretty summer shoes, and lovely modern American classics (as well as edgier pieces) which we’ve come to expect of Michael Kors‘ signature line. I pawed at some black and white purses, which would be a perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe this season, but at the end of the night, just meeting the designer and watching him get down to old school Michael Jackson was enough fun for one night.
If you are curious to check out the new Michael Kors boutique in Yorkville, it’s located on 131 Bloor St West. Happy Shopping!
