H&M Spring 2012 Lookbook

Flurries forecasted for Wednesday! So enjoy some bright colors, and fun spring outfits before all snow breaks loose! Don’t you just love this H&M Spring 2012 lookbook? Punchy citrussy hues, white leather, and colorful suede, is all I want to think about…and wear, all winter long. Too bad these won’t hit the stores until a couple of months from now. Oh well, at least we have something to look forward to!

What are your fave pieces?

Zara Woman November 2011 Lookbook

I haven’t done a Zara lookbook post in a while…mostly because I haven’t seen one that made me go “Whoa!” in a while…like this one. Absolutely in love with all the printed pants, tops, and skirts…and even more in love with the styling of the entire lookbook. Prints on prints? Dressy plaid? Feathers, snakeskin, tie-dye, and moto-boots? Yes, yes, and yes, please!

Do you like Zara’s November 2011 lookbook? Or is it too man-repellant for you? Share in the comments.

Shopping: All Saints Menswear

Is this what March supposed to feel like? Wet, and rainy, and blah? If so, I’d like to unsubscribe, please. With the weather (sort of) warming up, le boyfriend is looking for a nice spring jacket, without much luck. Nothing is popping enough for him to really like it, and it’s slowly driving me crazy. So when I recently stumbled upon All Saints, I was thanking every saint in the book.

First of all, the site has gorgeous womenswear, which was the first thing I was drawn too (naturally). But when I prodded further, I discovered that their menswear selection is pretty fantastic as well! Finally, some mens jackets with style and substance. Check out their lookbook, featuring some of my fave styles so far. Both the quilted, and the leather jackets are my frontrunners, and it seems that even le boyfriend’s interest is piqued. Fingers crossed.

Have you ever bought anything from All Saints before? Let us know about your experience in the comments!

Zara November 2010 Lookbook – Evening Collection

Ok, so even though I am on a strict self-imposed no-purchases-until-after-Christmas shopping ban, I couldn’t help but long for a few of the items in this Zara Evening Collection lookbook. Namely the red shift and the lovely rosette dress.

Though with my luck (or lack thereof), both items will probably be sold out by the time I venture out to the store. But if you’re still looking for something fun to wear this Holiday season, perhaps Zara is worth checking out this month? What do you think?

H&M Fall 2010 Lookbook

I really like the new Fall 2010 H&M campaign, featuring a fellow Canadian Daria Werbowy. It is by no means groundbreaking, nor especially different, but what I love about the pieces featured is how wearable they are. This is everyday/everywoman chic at its easiest, and by the looks of it at its comfiest too.

I already own most of the pieces featured (or some similar ones), but I still want the above grey sweater with asymmetrical hem – it’s just so simple, and I can imagine wearing it all through the winter. What do you think about this lookbook? Is it great or boring? Let me know in the comments.

H&M Divided Fall 2010 Lookbook

What do you think about H&M’s new Fall 2010 lookbook? The campaign features models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Karmen Pedaru, Patricia van der Vliet, Bastiaan Ninaber, and Josh Beech. I’ve seen most of the pieces in stores already, so if you’re after that McQueen-ish dress or that leopard print top, check out your local H&M for availability. To be honest, I am a bit underwhelmed by these photos. Perhaps due to the fact that I don’t want to even think about Fall yet, but also because I don’t see anything exciting featured in this campaign. Maybe it’s just me?

Zara June 2010 Lookbook

Zara’s summer sale is now on! And though the items I mostly want aren’t on sale (they are from Fall collection), it might be a good time to stock up on some essentials and a few fun summer pieces.

Also, just wanted to apologize for the lack of posts last week – my weekend got a two day extension due to the G20 happening in the downtown Toronto area, so I spent both Thursday and Friday renovating my room (painting, wallpapering, etc)…perhaps I’ll share some photos of the end result sometime next week.

Oh, and the winner of the H&M giveaway will be announced quite soon…don’t worry, I didn’t forget about you!

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday, lovelies!

Zara Lookbook May 2010

Seems like Zara’s May 2010 Lookbook has a lot of things that I want for spring – flowy maxi skirts, muted natural colors, fun office pants, and an easy (Miu-Miu-rip-off) romper. I don’t necessarily love that fringe poncho, but it’s certainly interesting. Did you like May’s Lookbook or is it a bit too blah for you?

Club Monaco + Garance Doré Fall 2010 Lookbook

Absolutely adore this Garance Doré for Club Monaco lookbook. Her style of photography is quite distinct, no? You can tell just by looking at the photographs that it’s Garance’s work! And with Scott Schuman shooting Burberry campaign, among others, this power-duo really is taking the fashion world by a storm. Good for them!

As for the above pic, it really reminded me of this one…well, not the outfit so much, but the hairstyle and the general feel of it. What do you think?

More Club Monaco lookbook photos available here…and below are my fave Club Monaco/Garance Doré Q&A parts!

CM As a photographer what is it that fascinates you about street fashion?
GD It’s a great way to discover personalities, it’s a different way to live fashion than through
the magazine fashion stories, which are more an ideal (and which I love). It’s a great way to be
inspired and to find your own style.

CM Define Chic.
GD Real chic is something you have even when you are naked. It’s a mix of intelligence,
kindness, grace and pride. It’s a politeness to other people to look good…

H&M Fashion Against AIDS 2010 Lookbook

Last week we got a sneak-peak of the music-festival-inspired H&M’s 3rd Fashion Against AIDS collection. Well, hide your credit cards, a better look at the collection is now available! Ever since this lookbook landed in my inbox, I’m sad (for my wallet) to say, that I am in love with so many pieces! The maxi dress above is a must-have for me this summer, as well as the black fedora, ruffled white dress, leopard print sandals, and much more! Of course, once I see these pieces in real life on May 20th, I’ll be able to gauge the “must vs. want” much better. In the meantime, scroll through the pics and drool with me.
