Boxing Week Buys

Ok I'm back after suffering from a terrible bout of the flu and a sinus infection which is still lingering! I am so sad to say that I have not been able to get out for any of the Boxing Day shopping I had planned on, this truly breaks my heart... Well I did manage to order 2 gorgeous pairs of boots from Aldo online for an insane discount and free shipping, and I did peruse The Gap and Old Navy online to find a few cute sweaters and a cozy pair of fur slippers! What did you find on your Boxing Day shopping trip? Please let me live vicariously through my fashionista friends!!

Presto Blonde-O

Hmmm I am on the fence about Emma Stone's new blonde do, it's probably for a movie role and she is still totally gorgeous but her red hair was amazing!! This was the pic I brought with me to my hairdresser last week, I love this dark rich red colour and I think we came pretty close to achieving it... What do you think, does Emma look better as a redhead or a blonde?

Red Hot Mamas

I had to post these pics of Isla Fisher (love her!) and Christina Aguilera in this amazing red lace Dolce & Gabbana dress... This would be the perfect holiday party dress, don't you think? I love how they both paired it with a blazer and it looks great with sheer or opaque hosiery, I personally love opaque but I would wear either! Not only do these ladies look totally gorgeous they also prove that mommy's are sexy too!!

Just a quick sale alert ladies (and gents!) all jammie pants at Old Navy are $8 until Friday!! This sale is available in stores and online so hurry up now for the best selection in styles and sizes, I have picked them up for my whole family!! 

Copy Katherine

I love leopard print and I'm not talking Peggy Bundy leopard! I adore it in moderation of course and worn one accessory at a time... I was inspired by Katherine Hiegl's super sexy Valentino bag today so I thought I would seek out a more affordable version for myself... I found this awesome handbag on the F21 website for just $30.80! This is a totally chic and multi purpose bag, I think I have to have it!!

Love Joe Fresh

I couldn't resist posting a few looks from the Joe Fresh 2011 Winter lookbook, I love this line it is so affordable and stylish... I was so excited when our very own Joe Fresh opened up down the street from me, yes it is in the middle of Fortinos (our local grocery store) but hey I can pick up milk, eggs and a cute leopard skirt all in  one stop!! Do you have any Joe Fresh in your closet?

Deal Of The Day

Red Alert Ladies!! H&M has amazing deals right now!! There are $2, $5, $10, $15, $20 deals in all departments ~while supplies last!! I picked up two adorable scarves for myself today for $5 each and I think I might pop back in tomorrow for another looksy!!

Natalie's Beauty

Is there another actress that can even hold a candle to Natalie Portman's beauty? I think she is truly a modern day Audrey Hepburn, she is effortlessly chic and looks just as gorgeous when snapped by the paparazzi on an afternoon stroll... She has been walking the red carpet lately to promote her newest movie Black Swan (which looks amazing!) so we have been seeing a whole lot of Natalie... These are two of my favourite makeup looks she has sported on the red carpet, the dark smoky eye and soft glossy lip and then the dark berry lip with subtle eye makeup... One word, stunning!

Winter Sunshine

I had to post this picture of Gwen Stefani, she looks absolutely beautiful in this yellow Prada dress with a skinny black bow belt at The Kennedy Center Honors on the red carpet... She looks like a modern day Audrey Hepburn, so classic and chic in a colour we don't see enough of in the colder months!! I love this look, what do you think of Gwen's gown?

Hey Sailor!

I am a sucker for stripes, I probably have at least ten striped tops in my wardrobe and would pick up ten more!! This is a great oversized striped tunic from Forever 21 and it's only $19.80, this would look great with skinny jeans or black leggings... Are you a fan of stripes too?

Thigh Highs Three Ways

Check out these amazing Chanel over the knee boots on Claudia Schiffer, these are totally drool worthy!! I love how she paired them with slim fitting dark jeans but did a sexy tee and blazer for evening and then a classic striped sweater or cute plaid shirt for day... I recently bought these cognac leather over the knee boots from Sterling (they can be worn folded up or down) and Claudia has given me some outfit inspiration, although I think my boots were a little more affordable at $149!

Party Eyes

I have been trying to wear a little more colour on my eyes, I tend to stick with neutral shadows for myself but this time of year I start feeling a little festive about my makeup!! I was perusing the web today for some fun makeup looks and came across these great pics of Miley and Scarlett both sporting a rich shimmery plum eye, this would be a great look for a Christmas party or dinner with the girls and purples tend to work for all eye colours... Play around with different shades, I love MAC shadow in Plum Dressing it's a purple pinkish metallic shade that goes on richly and can be used wet or dry depending on how intense you want it to look... Do you have any purple in your makeup bag?

Birthday Boots!

I had a fantastic birthday yesterday and was completely spoiled rotten by my husband and daughter! Megan bought me a gorgeous hunter green lightweight scarf and a gift certificate for H&M and my husband totally surprised me with 2 pairs of gorgeous Etienne Aigner riding boots! I actually cried tears of shock and joy! I love the dark bordeaux pair but I am absolutely in love with the two tone pair, I wore them out last night and plan on living in them this winter!!

Love Lace

I think lace must be one of my favourite trends of the season, it looks amazingly chic for evening and is the perfect compliment to dress up your denim or winter shorts... But the only lace pieces I own are black which is simply just silly of me! While perusing my usual fashion sites today I came across these gorgeous ladies all in white lace frocks and wow do they ever look sweet yet elegant... So now begins the hunt for the little white lace dress (LWLD)... I think this would be a staple in any gal's wardrobe and could totally be worn all year round, I would wear mine with dark tights and booties in the winter and sky high wedge sandals in the summer... The possibilities with this look are endless, I will keep you posted on my search!

Gossip Girl Goes Green

So I was feeling inspired by a guilty pleasure of mine... Gossip Girl! I could watch it for the fashion alone and I am a huge Blair Waldorf fan, so when I came across this pic from last season of Ms. Waldorf in this gorgeous green cape/coat I knew I needed to find something similar for myself.... And voila, on and in stores this beautiful bright green peacoat is only $45.00 and would look amazing this season to brighten up the usual winter basics!!

Holiday Do's

Here are some of my favourite hair looks for the holiday season, with a few parties coming up I plan on trying a few of these looks out on myself... The faux bob is such a fun way to sport a new glam style and I love big soft curls with a center part but I am also partial to the high chignon that we are still seeing on the red carpet... You can keep your look simple with a great little black dress and have some fun with your hair and try a pretty headband or beaded clip to jazz it up after all 'tis the season!!

'Tis The Season

Oh party dresses, how I love them so! I am feeling inspired by all the beautiful jewel tones we keep seeing on the red carpet and I especially have a soft spot for emerald green, it is such a rich gorgeous colour and perhaps the way it looks against my red hair has a little something to do with my love of it... I have spotted a few party dresses at H&M and Jacob in this hot hue that I absolutely adore, I will definitely post my purchases this weekend!!

Hot Pink Mandy

We haven't seen alot of Mandy Moore these days, so I was excited to see her on the red carpet at a recent movie premiere looking absolutely stunning! This deep pink jewel tone dress is such a gorgeous colour on her and the gold strappy sandals are the perfect partner... I am really loving the one shoulder frocks we are seeing everywhere, I think I would like something like this for a Christmas party I'm going to... Would you wear this look?

Platinum Pixie

So I'm still totally on the fence about Ashlee Simpson-Wentz new haircut... I feel like I took a big leap yesterday when I got almost 2 inches cut off and blunt bangs (lol), but this is a drastic change from her super long dark locks... Ashlee is a very pretty girl and can really wear just about every hair colour and her petite heart shaped face can pull off a choppy pixie do but I think I prefer her with a little more hair or perhaps it's a combo of the cut and severe blonde that is throwing me off... What do you think about her new look, is it a do or a don't??

Lip Service

I have recently discovered Cover Girl lipstain, it is an amazing water-based colour that gives a beautiful and soft flush of colour and best of all it lasts for hours... Its pen shaped applicator makes it super easy to fill in your lips, you literally just draw on the colour... There are a dozen shades to choose from and my personal favourite is Flirty Nude, check out Shoppers Drug Mart this week for 30% off all Cover Girl cosmetics!! Stock up on a few colours for your fall/winter look!!

Winter White

I recently made an Old Navy online purchase and was so pleased when this beautiful cream double breasted wool blend coat arrived... The fit is perfect and totally chic, I have always wanted a winter white dressy coat and this gorgeous topper did not disappoint! You won't believe this but I bought it for a total of $55 including tax and shipping, regularly $115 I had a 50% off coupon plus an additional %15 off from a LouLou Magazine promo... This was a beautiful (and warm) deal! I can't wait to wear it over a chunky black turtleneck dress paired with my over the knee black suede boots...

White Night

I am loving Heidi's white Ann Taylor suit, she is the new spokeswoman for the line and wow this gal wears it well... I would totally wear a white suit any season and I love how she paired it with all black accessories including the cute fedora, this makes it so fall/winter appropriate... Make sure your suit is well tailored and it is best to keep the rest of the look minimal and chic to avoid looking like a character from Miami Vice!! Would you wear a white suit??

Banging Around

I am so tempted to go back to bangs, I have spent almost two years growing mine out and I am totally bored of my hair these days... I am going next week for a cut and colour so I think it's time for a fun new hair cut, I'll stick with my bright red hue but I think it would be fun to change things up a bit!! When I see pics like these of Christina Ricci I feel totally inspired to take the fringe plunge... P.s. I love her makeup in both of these pics, wow she looks like a screen siren with her red matte lips!!

Steal Her Style

I am loving Rachel Bilson's black suede Brian Atwood "Eastwood" platform booties!! I thought I would peruse the web and check out my usual fashion haunts to see what I could find, low and behold on the Forever 21 website I found these adorable and near identical booties for a mere $33.80!! And they come in gray faux suede as well, at that price it is so tempting to buy both colours... Are you wearing booties this season?

Monday, November 1, 2010

Pretty In Pink

This fabulous look that Blake Lively was wearing at a recent Hollywood event is totally chic and the perfect example of how to transition a dress from summer to fall... This hot pink frock is so beautiful and this colour is amazing on her, I love the bold dress paired with black opaque tights, booties and a fitted shrunken leather jacket... I want this jacket, I will have to keep my eyes peeled for a similar one to add to my winter wardrobe!!

Classic Claire

Looking at these two pics of the lovely and talented Claire Danes it is almost impossible to decide which look I like better! Her classic red lip which she has done in the perfect crimson glossy shade for her complexion while keeping the rest of her look understated is totally gorgeous but on the other hand I love her dark rimmed smokey eye and nude lip, this is the perfect look for a night out on the town... Which is your favourite look?

"It" Girl Olivia

Olivia Palermo is probably one of the most stylish woman I have ever seen, she is absolutely beautiful and with her gorgeous figure she can really wear just about anything! She loves to mix and match prints and fabric textures and she also does minimal chic to perfection, I love how she incorporates a trend into her ensembles but still manages to keep her look subtle and totally fabulous... I have also noticed that Olivia remixes her staples, she will be photographed wearing the same black fur vest 4 different ways and totally rock it and check out these killer Proenza Schouler gray lace up booties that she has dressed up for day and night! Olivia's style is truly inspiring, this girl has "it"!
