Shopping: H&M Spring 2014 – In Stores Now!

8134_LB_W_05

Several weeks ago, but what feels like FOREVER AGO, I was looking through photos of H&M’s Spring 2014 collection and making mental wishlists. I loved so many pieces from those photos that I became a little…teeny-tiny bit obsessed, which then turned into a daily visit to H&M to see if my objects of obsession have arrived. It was kind of torturous…in the #firstworldproblems kind of way.

Well, several weeks, and many frantic calls to H&M later, I am happy to announce that most of Spring 2014 collection is now in stores!!! *insert a happy jig right here* And if you aren’t as obsessed with this collection as I am, you probably just haven’t seen the photos. I mean, that lace coat – perfection, breezy white dress – drool, colourful sequined skirt – need it, matching floral top and shorts – I CAN’T EVEN! So yes, check out photos of H&M’s spring amazingness below and get yourself to a store stat, because those standout pieces won’t last long…and also, I already scooped up half of it for myself and another obsessed friend of mine. You know what they say…persistent store stalker gets the clothes.

Happy Friday!

Alberta-Ferretti-Macys-Impulse-Collection-Pictures

When I stumbled upon these lookbook photos from Alberta Ferretti’s collaboration with Macy’s Impulse…I pretty much squeeled with excitement. Set in Positano, Italy…these photos are the essence of what I hope my wedding getaway will feel (and look) like. I’d like to imagine that this entire lookbook was shot with my honeymoon in mind!

Everything in the Alberta Ferretti x Macy’s Impulse collection is priced between $49 and $119, and will be sold at 185 Macy’s locations across the US starting April 17.

With that said…me thinks a trip to Buffalo is in order. Who’s with me?

Mary Katrantzou for Topshop Lookbook!

Today was supposed to be a lazy sick day in bed for me…I wasn’t going to blog, go online, or do anything at all…except for sleeping, and watching TV, of course. Well…I broke my “go online” rule…and found out that Mary Katrantzou for Topshop collection lookbook is now available! And, of course, who could resist?

Not sure about you, but I have serious envy right now for all those Brits that will be able to shop this collab. At this point, I doubt we’ll be seeing these pieces at Topshop stores in Canada, but one can always dream, right? Love all the floral pieces, love the styling, and love the price points (GBP 40 to GBP 350). Now the question is…how inflated those prices will be on eBay? Another prediction – VERY inflated. Le sigh.

What do you think of this collaboration? Are you going to line up on February 17th, when the collection finally hits the stores? If you are…pick me up a piece or 10, will you?

UPDATE: Well, guess what?! The Mary Katrantzou for Topshop collection WILL be available at the Yorkdale Topshop location (at The Bay) sometime at the beginning of March! Stay tuned for more details. Dreams do come true!!!

Moon Apparel Spring 2012 Lookbook

As a Canadian blogger, I am always super excited when Canadian companies bring something fresh and exciting to the table. Obviously, bright colors for spring aren’t necessarily anything new…but I love this Moon Apparel Spring 2012 lookbook nonetheless. With the punchy pops of color, lace frocks and tops, and seriously wearable separates – I will definitely be stalking my neighborhood Bay store trying to pick up these pieces before they are all gone.

What do you think of Moon’s spring offerings? Are you mooning over them yet? (sorry, had to go there). Share in the comments.

Zara Spring 2012 Lookbook

What do you think of this Spring 2012 Zara Lookbook, featuring Saskia de Brauw? At first, I thought it was pretty blah (save for those kick-ass shorts)…without much color, energy, or anything whatsoever that would make me go ZARASPRINGOMGYES! Upon closer inspection, I must admit that I have completely changed my mind. I am actually loving these soft, subtle pieces…like the cream bouclé trench coat. Isn’t it just perfect? Chic, and simple, and yes, I know that I already typed that…perfect. And just because the picture was all-white, I almost dismissed it altogether. Tsk, tsk…must pay closer attention next time.

Other pieces on my honeymoon-must-buy list are the aforementioned shorts (am all over that print), and possibly the sheer panel pants (depending on how sheer they are). What about you? Have you give this lookbook another look? Or do you still find it blah and boring? Share in the comments.

Sandro Paris Spring 2012 Lookbook

I don’t know about you, but I am done with winter. D.O.N.E. Even though we’ve had it pretty good this year, I still can’t stand the cold, the slush, and the bundling up. So today, I’d rather daydream of sunny days, floral prints, and pops of color all over, courtesy of Sandro Paris’ Spring 2012 Lookbook!

There are so many Sandro pieces that I would love to add to my wardrobe this spring: leather jackets (especially the one in red/orange), blue tailored cropped trousers for work, a yellow dress for my honeymoon, and those awesome floral shorts for warm summer nights out.

What do you think of Sandro’s Spring 2012 wares? Did anything catch your eye? Share in the comments.

OBJECT by George Antonopoulos for Danier Spring 2012 Lookbook

Remember when I was all like “George Antonopoulos is a creative genius, and I want to have his babies!!!”? No? I guess that was all in my head, then. But seriously, you guys. Spring 2012 lookbook for George’s OBJECT for Danier Leather Collection landed in my inbox today, and I simply cannot contain my excitement! As expected, it’s gorgeous! Having seen most of the pieces at last year’s preview, I am still awed by the collection, modeled by the Canadian stunner Tara Gill. The beautiful cuts, vivid hues, and perfect styling – all combined, make for a pretty lethal combo – making my wallet weep with anticipation of what’s to come (complete and total credit card annihilation).

So far I’m calling dibs on blue leather pants, pink leather skirt, brown leather shorts, grey suede tank, and yellow (or pink) suede dress. What about you guys? Does this lookbook make you more excited about the upcoming spring season? Are you dying to get your paws on some of the pieces from George’s second collection with Danier? Share the excitement in the comments!
