Uterqüe Spring 2012 Lookbook

uterque-lookbook

Last week, I attended a lovely cocktail party in honor of Yorkdale Shopping Centre’s newest retailers. If you still haven’t heard, come fall, you’ll be able to shop Kate Spade New York, Ted Baker London, Ann Taylor, LOFT, and many other brands all at Yorkdale!

While chatting with Yorkdale’s GM Anthony Casalanguida, and trying to get him to spill the beans about other possible Toronto imports, I realized that there aren’t too many brands that I, as an ex-Texan, really want to see here in Canada. Until I remembered about Uterqüe!

Uterqüe is an Inditex brand (just like Zara and Massimo Dutti), mainly available in Europe. When I first walked into one of their stores in Barcelona, I knew I’d want to shop there again – the clothes are cute, and not crazily-priced. But unfortunately for us, there’s still no North American online shopping…and no stores either in Canada or the US. What a bummer.

So here’s the deal, Uterqüe and Yorkdale. Make it happen! Because we really need some fresh blood stores here in Canada…and in Toronto. And I want everything in this lookbook!

What do you think about Uterqüe? Is it a brand you’d like to see in Canada? Share in the comments.

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Collection Lookbook

trina-turk-banana-republic-ad

Launches today is the highly-anticipated collab between Trina Turk and Banana Republic, chock-full of summer and vacation essentials in fun prints and bright colors. And though I kinda wish that these pieces were in stores before my own beachy getaway I just got back from, I am still going to stop by a Banana Republic store today to try and pick up a couple of cute summer pieces (like those printed shorts, and that lovely orange maxi below). After all, you never know when you’re going to be swept away!

What do you think of this Trina Turk for Banana Republic collection? Share your fave pieces in the comments!

Coachella Style 2012 – Weekend #1

coachella-diane-kruger-stripes

There are two Coachella weekends this year, so today’s celeb style round-up will focus on Weekend #1. I must say, comparing to the past few festivals, this year’s celeb sightings left me somewhat disappointed. The look on Pacey’s face above pretty much sums up my feelings about this year’s looks – one huge “meh”.

Apart from a few cute outfits (courtesy of Diane Kruger, Dree Hemingway, and Whitney Port), most celeb looks from Coachella 2012 were either too boring, too crazy, or plain stupid…looking. I must admit, I got zero summer outfit inspiration from this year’s Coachella-attending celebs. Zero. But perhaps you’ll feel otherwise.

Maybe the below looks from Katy Perry, Kate Bosworth, Lea Michelle, and Lauren Conrad will tickle your fancy? Yes? No? Maybe? Share in the comments.

Jacob Spring 2012 Lookbook

jacob-spring-2012-lookbook-6

Making a mental note to stop by the nearest Jacob store to check out their spring arrivals, because from what I’ve seen so far – I like! Seriously, how gorgeous is that floral dress (above)?! Just imagine how fresh you’ll look at the office this spring…I’m imagining that right now. And that black and white Chanel-esque cuff? Need it!

If like me, you have been to Jacob in a while, I think it’s time to pay them a visit. Dibs on all the pretty dresses!

Zara TRF April 2012 Lookbook

zara-trf-april2012-01

I’ve been really impressed with Zara lately. Even their younger line TRF (Trafaluc) is knocking it out of the park! When I saw that leather jacket above, it was love at first sight. I was due for a leather jacket upgrade, so I snatched it up and have been obsessed with it ever since. True story.

Now that the TRF April 2012 lookbook is out, I am also loving the mint-colored jacket, fringed white sweater, as well as that army jacket with leather sleeves. I mean if you live in Toronto, you can never have too many jackets…am I right, or am I right?

What do you think of Zara’s TRF April 2012 Lookbook? Any pieces that you simply must have? Share in the comments.

Today we bring you a sneak peek at April 2012 Fash Weekly editorial, featuring clothing by Anu Raina, and accessories from Bitter Sweet. Personally, I am intrigued about that pink Peter Pan collar…it makes me wonder whether it’s sold separately, or is a part of the colorful dress. I guess we’ll find out when the flipbook issue becomes available in a couple of days! What do you think of this sneak peek? Share in the comments!
