Style: March Break Travelling Essentials

Hello!
With this crazy weather coming our way it may be time for a quick vacay next month to somewhere hot! One of the things I hate most is packing and always wait till the last minute to do so. Although I hate packing I try to keep myself as organize as possible and try to pack the necessaries first then move on to the minimum items. I also write a list down of everything I pack to remember what I came with and left with. If you plan on going away for a few days I suggest you pack light. I have never been out of the country as of yet but planning on going away this summer and can't wait! We will make sure to blog about our fun vacations, so stay tune!

Here is what to pack in your luggage: A few of your best bikinis, a plain white top that you can knot to throw over a bikini, jean shorts are a must! A flowy colourful dress for dinner such seen below, what is great about that particular dress is that it can be transformed into another dress. It can go from casual to dressy by playing with the fabric or adding accessories.Your essentials have to be a jean jacket and maybe a cute pair of overalls since they are trendy right now! They are easy to wear and the jacket you may need in case. You can't forget your accessories! I wouldn't go to overboard for packing accessories I would pick two or three necklaces and bracelets that are versatile for any outfit you have planned. For shoes I would suggest to stick to something basic like two pairs of sandals and two pairs of your sexiest pumps. Oh and don't forget your sunglasses! Now you are ready for your trip.

Fashion: NYC Fashion Week Fall 2014 Trend Alert!

Hey Dolls!
With fashion week quickly approaching in Toronto next month we are all excited about what each designer will bring to the runway! And this year we will be definitely going to as many shows as we can! Can't wait! As we patiently await for Toronto Fashion Week we had the chance to lookout for our favourite American designers at New York Fashion Week Fall 2014. Here are some of the trends we can look forward to see in stores next Fall.
-Jennifer

Plaid:
  (Vera Wang Fall 2014)
(Victoria Beckham Fall 2014)
Seems like plaid is here to stay! Plaid can seem tricky if not paired properly but it's also a print to have fun with. This trend is all about making a statement from a blouse, skirt or coat there are endless ways to pair this print to an outfit. Here is a trick to stay fashionable and not go to crazy with this print! Make it an accent to an outfit! For example if your coat is plaid make your overall outfit simple and neutral so your coat can make its statement, seen in Victoria Beckham's collection. For the fashionistas out there not afraid to take a risk go crazy and take on the Vera Wang look above, go bold with pairing plaid on plaid.

Knits:
(Marc Jacobs Fall 2014)
(Tory Burch Fall 2014)
Knits will forever remain in style! Every season designer always come up with a clever way to reinvent the knit "sweater," this season Marc Jacobs decided to go all out and do knit from head to toe! Let see if this catches on. You can't go wrong with a simple knit sweater with chain embellishment like Tory Burch is showing with some cute knit knee socks.

Green for Fall:
 (Prabal Gurung Fall 2014)
(J.Mendel Fall 2014)
For this upcoming Fall it is all about green! Forget about black being the colour of the year, green is the colour that will make you stand out from a crowd. They are calling it "Emerald City" on the runway and it's all about brightening up people's wardrobe but still given them a edge for the Fall. Prabal Gurung always gives us a great chic sophisticated look, I really appreciate the matching green coat and matching trousers, the fabric and grey turtleneck brings the outfit all together nicely. J.Mendel tones down the green trend by incorporating it in a simple asymmetrical fitted dress, love how classy yet edgy it looks!

Funky Fur:
(Ralph Lauren Fall 2014)
(J.Mendel Fall 2014)
I believe that every girl should own at least one faux fur jacket for Fall! especially for those special occasions to go out. Love that they decided to have fun with with fur for Fall by incorporating some fun colours such as the light pink seen above in Ralph Lauren and J.Mendel taking it up a notch by adding many colours into the mix. I am so in love with both looks the first one can definitely go for a day look and the second outfit a night look.

Shearling:
(Reed Krakoff Fall 2014)
(Zero+Maria Cornejo Fall 2014)
I never was a big fan of the shearling trend but next Fall I am ready to try it out. This trend applies the comfy yet fashionable statement to it. It's all about making a statement but having a effortless persona while at it. This trend will definitely do well next Fall because of the windy weather and it being easy to add on to any outfit to give it more of a laid-back vibe. A great example of this is seen in the Reed Krakoff collection, the designer just added a simple shearling jacket over a top and long maxi skirt, very boho chic. Zero+Maria Cornejo took the shearling trend to a whole another level! They incorporated the shearling trend from head to toe. This look may be for a risk taker, definitely could picture someone like Rihanna pulling this off and of course changing the shoes to a brown bootie.
