H&M Studio Collection Fall 2014 Lookbook

hm-studio-fall-winter-2014-lookbook-9

We are almost in September, which means a couple of things – fall and fall fashions. And while I’m certainly not a fan of cold weather, I am usually all about fall collections. Last February, I posted photos from H&M Studio’s Paris Fashion Week show, and now, we finally have official lookbook images, and photos of most pieces that will be hitting the stores on September 4th.

I have my eye on a few things from this collection, including the faux fur jackets, and that gorgeous striped dress. And while I do hope that warm weather will stick around just a bit longer, living in Canada comes with a few certainties, and one of them is – winter is coming…eventually, so it’s never too early to buy a plush faux fur coat.

Will you be checking out the collection next week? Which pieces are you coveting? Share in the comments!

Wishlist: Converse x Missoni Fall 2014 Collection

converse-missoni-fall-2014

Be still, my beating heart! Converse x Missoni Fall 2014 collection images are here and they are EVERYTHING. For the record, it took me 3 tries to type the word ‘everything’ correctly, because my fingers are freaking out. First of all, I’d like you to know that I will wrestle you for a pair of those black and white zigzag high-tops, and second of all, September 15th can’t come soon enough, because that’s when this collection will drop in Canada. Also, if you’re on a budget, don’t fret, the shoes are pretty affordable, ranging from $85 USD to $100 USD this time around.

“Since 2010, Converse and Missoni have partnered together to create eight premium First String sneaker collections. Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. This fall, Converse and Missoni take their partnership to the next level with an expansive all new Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker offering for both men and women. The new collection features Missoni’s iconic patterns printed on the signature Chuck Taylor All Star and Chuck Taylor All Star Fancy sneakers.”

If you are as obsessed about this collab as I am, you will be able to pick up a pair at the following retailers:  Town Shoes, Browns Shoes, Little Burgundy, Gravity Pope and Livestock, just make sure to leave a black and white pair in size 9W for me!

It’s Here! Complete Altuzarra for Target Lookbook!

altuzarra-for-target-full-lookbook-25

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Altuzarra for Target collection will be hitting the stores on September 14th, and we FINALLY have the entire lookbook to gawk at. Consisting of 50 pieces, and ranging in price from $18-$90, the collection seems to be a lot more wearable than most collabs we’ve seen as of late. For one, there are a lot of work-appropriate separates, dresses that can be worn to a 9-5 job, and to a date after, a lot of timeless silhouettes, sexy cuts, snakeskin, lace, oh my! Speaking of lace…that lace mask may be very Fifty Shades, but I truly find myself needing it a lot more than I probably should.

Apart from the lace mask, my list will include the Swiss dot maxi (oh-so-70s!), the faux fur jacket, that terrific velvet suit, and of course, the black tuxedo-style dress with a sexy slit – all pieces that I can see having longevity inside my overstuffed closet.

But what about you? What do you think about this highly-anticipated collection? Will you be among the early birds on September 14th at your local Target store? Share your faves in the comments!

Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2014 Collection

chanel-haute-couture-fall-2014

I am so excited about Paris Haute Couture fashion week, you guys! If, like me, you’ve been missing the excitement and drama in fashion lately, now’s the perfect time to feast your eyes on the hautest gowns of the upcoming season. And while some couture shows left me bored to tears (or nearly), thank goodness for CHANEL, and of course, Karl Lagerfeld. Love him or hate him, the man’s got imagination.

CHANEL Haute Couture Fall 2014 show featured a variety of surprising elements, including what looked like fancy flip flops worn with exquisite gowns, a pregnant model closing the show (apparently Karl loves the pregnant ladies, who would’ve thought?!), messy feathery up-dos topped with Maison Michel’s tiny hats, and a Kardashian strutting her stuff on the runway. *I wonder if Kim’s jealous of Kendall’s fiery rise to the top? I mean, walking in a CHANEL show and having Karl’s approval has got to be more meaningful than scoring half of that VOGUE cover, amiright?

But no matter, despite the pared down setting (no supermarkets or icebergs at this show), the clothes spoke for themselves. Karl’s modern vision, infused with baroque touches and youthful styling, resulted in a dazzling, but still wearable couture collection. One that I am certain we’ll soon see on various red carpets (most likely on Keira Knightley, Diane Kruger, and the like), and I honestly can’t wait! I especially want someone to wear that poofy feathery blue confection…I think with softer hair, it can look both cool and ethereal…also, I am kind of obsessed with it.

But tell me, what do you think of CHANEL Haute Couture Fall 2014 collection? Are you as obsessed as me? Share in the comments.

Wishlist: Kate Spade Vita Riva Wicker Lemon Bag

Kate-Spade-Wicker-Lemon-Shoulder-Bag

Ever since I laid eyes on this adorable wicker Kate Spade lemon bag, I’ve been dreaming of Sorrento and ginormous Sorrentine lemons. And now, fresh off my French Riviera vacation, I find myself yearning for Sorrento all the more. And while I probably can’t take another couple of weeks off right now, maybe having this bag on my shoulder will make pretending like I am on vacation just a little easier. Don’t you think?

And if like me, you love citrusy fashions, I picked out several other fruity bags to make your summer a little sweeter. Enjoy!
