Canadian designer Sarah Stevenson is having a pretty damn good year so far! Not only did this Toronto Fashion Incubator New Labels Competition winner scored the Emerging Talent Award at the inaugural CAFA Awards, but her highly-anticipated Sarah Stevenson for Target collection will be hitting the stores in just a few weeks on March 23rd…and it’s GORGEOUS!
After seeing so many well-known designers do fast-fashion collabs (some more successful than others), it makes me really happy to finally see a Canadian designer collab that’s not only really well-executed, but also true to the designer’s aesthetic. “As a textile and fashion designer, her collection features richly hued florals and feminine, sophisticated styles. Inspired by nature, her collection is timeless, elegant and romantic.”
Pieces from the collection will range from $24.99 to $59.99, making this one of the most affordable designer collabs ever. And at those prices, I just know that I’ll be picking up at least a few of Sarah’s beautiful pieces (floral blazer, laser-cut blouse, peplum dress, and blue laser-cut dress are my must-haves from this collection).
So what do you think of Sarah Stevenson for Target? Share in the comments! And I’ll see you at Target on March 23rd!

Just as I started to feel like I will never see something new and fresh on the red carpet, I’m proven wrong…and I love it! I mean, just look at this stunning Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress that Emma Watson wore on the
red carpet parquet floor at the Elle Style Awards 2014! It’s daring, it’s fun, it’s so effing cool, and I want it on my body. Love how the skirt is an exaggerated bow, love the sequined “crop-top”, and love that Emma chose to go relatively jewel-free for the occasion, letting the dress be the star of the show. Love it all!
This is what I’ve been craving lately. More creativity on the red carpet, and less beige blah embroidered mermaid-skirted “Taylor-Swiftness”. Is that too much to ask?

As you may have noticed, there hasn’t been a Diane Kruger fashion post on this site for a while now. I was starting to go through Kruger withdrawal, until I finally noticed this outfit, and all was right with the world again. This Valentino Couture gown is a work of art. So what if you can see her black panties? It’s still an exquisite gown on an exquisite woman. As usual, Diane was smart to keep the hair and make-up toned down and let the dress shine instead. Don’t you wish you had one of these in your closet? The dress! Not Diane Kruger, silly.

It’s no secret that cutesy prints are my thing. So it’s no big surprise that I’m all over the new Banana Republic L’Wren Scott collaboration! Not only is this capsule collection chock-full of gorgeous holiday-ready dresses and separates (sparkly cardi, anyone?), but the whimsical prints are making my heart race. Lip-print PJs, purses, blouse, and skirt? Umm, yes, please! So pretty and so fun.
If you’ve been drooling over L’Wren Scott’s glam frocks, now is the time to stock up on a few at a fraction of the price. The collection is comprised of more than 50-pieces of apparel and accessories for women ranging in price from $20 to $240 and will be available at Banana Republic retail locations worldwide, and online at www.bananarepublic.ca on December 5th.

How great does Lupita Nyong’o look in this sleek Prabal Gurung tuxedo dress? With purple lipstick, white pumps, and a Charlotte Olympia domino clutch, she’s a vision in black and white. And the best part – she looks comfortable, happy, and poised. Now that’s how you do red carpet!

Christmas will be coming early this year, thanks to Canadian designer Sunny Fong and his latest limited-edition VAWK for eBay Holiday Collection that will be available from December 2nd to 8th.
Consisting of 9 festive pieces, Fong’s second eBay collection is even better than the first, and I have no doubt that it’ll sell in a heartbeat…so if you really like something, do not wait! The Manta Dress from the first collection is back, but it’s been glamified with sparkly sequins – perfect for the holiday parties. Leather studs adorn the new tie, cuff, and collar pieces, and fox fur was added to the chic Manta Caplet. There are also silk scarves and a pocket square finished with beautiful custom-designed prints.
One very notable addition (and my favourite piece) this season is the one-of-a-kind White Manta Gown, made out of thick stretchy ponte fabric, with strategically placed sexy (but classy) cutouts with sheer netting, and one that will work for a wide range of sizes (size 2 to size 8 to be specific). The fit, the cut, the fabric, and the design are all stellar, and the crazy thing is – the bidding price for this piece will start at only $0.99, with proceeds from the sale going to Kids Help Phone. It’s simply perfect for an elegant special occasion, and I can even see this as a laid back wedding gown too – pretty, versatile, and for a good cause? I think you may just have to fight me for it.

Happy Monday, lovelies! Hope you had a great weekend. After two days of lazying around, watching movies, eating Georgian food, and shopping at Yorkdale, I am bracing myself for a rough week at work, so I am getting my week started with my favourite – Diane Kruger in Chanel with Joshua Jackson by her side. Somehow those two always manage to put a smile on my face.
Diane’s dress is a gorgeous sequined Chanel cocktail frock that probably costs more than a mid-size sedan, and Pacey’s denim tuxedo jacket is a perfect alternative to the classic, but oh-so-tired black dinner blazer. Great looks for all of those upcoming holiday parties, non? Yup, I went there! It’s November 4th, which means that the holidays are just around the corner…but I’ll leave that for another post…or ten. For now, let’s just get through this Monday.

If you’d told me that Sandra Bullock was 39, I would totally believe you, but the fact is…she’s actually 49! Almost 50 and looking better than ever. How the heck does she do it?! Sandra wore this lovely lace Stella McCartney number to the London premiere of Gravity and I have to say that she looks better now than she did when she was in her 20s. Her hair is sensational, her skin is glowing, and those legs! I am only 29, and I would have to work out for 3 years daily in order to be in the shape she’s in. You heard it here first – 50 is the new 20.
I can’t wait to watch Gravity this weekend. The critics’ ratings are amazing, and the word of mouth is also pretty solid, so yeah…sign me up!

Sorry for the crappy photos, but it was raining that day and I really liked this dress, and my hair was done, so it was either photos on the porch, or no photos at all, and well…this is the result.
I’ve been saving this Line and Dot dress for a special occasion, and finally ended up wearing it to le bf’s cousin’s wedding at the beautiful Toronto Hunt Club. The wedding was beautiful, bride and groom looked happy, and we ate our faces off because the food was phenomenal. And the best part is…even though I stuffed my face, my dress concealed the food baby, and that is one of the many reasons I love it (the dress, not the food baby).
Since it was a cool day, I ended up wearing my leather moto jacket over my maxi. I wasn’t sure if leather jackets were appropriate wedding attire, but I wasn’t going to wear a pashmina or a blazer, so leather was it. And you know what? I’m pretty happy with the combination – dressy, but also a little badass, and 100% me.
It may not be your cup of tea, but I wasn’t lying when I said that I LIVE in my leather jackets. The office, weekends, weddings, you name it…leather jacket always seems to be the answer. But what about you? Do you think it’s appropriate to wear leather to a wedding? Share in the comments!

Even though we’re in the middle of TIFF madness, I wanted to post this amazing Christian Dior dress Cate Blanchett wore at the Deauville Film Festival. It is just so stunning! Cate always manages to look polished and regal no matter what she wears, but she also doesn’t stick to just one silhouette/look and ride its coattails. *cough* Jennifer Aniston *cough*
Regardless of whether you think this looks flattering or not, I would take this “tent” dress over a million LBDs. Just me?
