Fall Fringe

Oooh as soon as the fall weather starts approaching I can't wait to pull out my boots from storage and work them back into my wardrobe again!! A really big trend we are seeing for this season is the slouchy fringe boot, they look so sexy and chic especially in suede, I find leather can look a little too harsh... I would like to find a mid-heel knee high pair in taupe or gray with an almond toe, I have seen a few style on aldoshoes.com but I think I will wait a few weeks for more fringe styles to surface!

Dramatic Duo

Anna Paquin in Alexander McQueen and January Jones in Versace are the winners for the most daring dresses of the night ... They are equally beautiful and totally different than any of the other ladies that walked the red carpet last night, the hair and makeup are flawless and I am especially loving that shade of electric blue on January... I love when starlets dare to be different, they both took fashion risks and they paid off big time!!

Emmy Style

I am going to post my top 5 looks tomorrow from the Emmy red carpet but I just had to give you a sneak peek at one of my favourite ladies of the night so far! Lea Michele looks gorgeous tonight in her mermaid style midnight blue Oscar de la Renta gown, her jewellery is amazing and her hair and makeup are perfection... Lea has become a fashionista to watch, she looks classy and chic but still young and modern all at the same time!

Dotted Diva

I just love a polka dot dress, they always look so sweet and chic!! Lauren Conrad looks adorable here in this polka dot frock and the trick is to make sure it is tailored to your figure otherwise this print can look sloppy or clownish... Feeling inspired I decided to surf around and I found this super cute chiffon dotted dress on the Forever 21 website for just $24.80, this would look amazing with a killer pair of red patent pumps and matching clutch... Perfect for a fall wedding or dinner date with my hubby!

Cozy Style

So I had an hour today to power shop and I decided to check out The Gap with my 30% off coupon in hand... I bought a gorgeous cognac leather belt for $20 and this wine coloured cozy (5% cashmere) oversized v-neck boyfriend sweater... That was a mouthful! This was regularly $49.50 marked down to $29.99 plus 30% off so it cost me $20... Looks adorable on and is soooo comfy, kinda makes me long for Fall (a little)... Tomorrow I am heading to Banana Republic to do some damage... I'll keep you posted!

Lashing Out

I love Anna Paquin (yes I admit I am slightly obsessed with True Blood!!)... but I am also a big fan of her red carpet style too... Anna's makeup here is so gorgeous, the subtle pink glossy lip colour is perfect with her dark rimmed eyes and amazingly long lashes... False lashes add instant glam to an evening look and they photograph beautifully! Every gal should try them at least once and even better you can find them at Shoppers Drugmart for $10!!

Torn Up

I am a sucker for destroyed denim, I just love it whether it is a skinny jean like Annalynne McCord is rocking here or a distressed boyfriend style jean I love them all! After seeing these pics of the 90210 star I decided I would search out the perfect pair of torn up skinnies from one of my favourite places, Forever 21... This adorable pair is only $24.80 and in stores or online right now and they would look so amazing with a pair of killer motorcycle boots...I think I need to take a shopping trip this week!!

Gossip Returns XOXO

I just came across some fantastic pics of my favourite fashionistas on the set of Gossip Girl! Blair, Serena and Vanessa are all set to return on Tuesday September 14th at 9pm and here is a sneak peak at some of the amazing fashion that we will be feasting our eyes on every week... Sometimes I'm not sure which I love more, the show or the fashion... I think it would have to be a tie...

Singing a New Tone

What do you think of the ombré hair trend we are seeing everywhere... Gals are wearing their undyed dark roots inches long or even dyeing their hair to get this faded from dark to light look... I guess this is a great way to be frugal, you wouldn't need to see your hairdresser very often! I don't think this would work with my deep red dyed hair and mousey brown roots, but I kinda like the way Jessica Biel has been rocking this look with the brunette root and honey blond ends... It will be interesting to see how long this trend hangs around for!

Wrap Me Up

With Fall on the horizon I have been eyeing a few scarves to add to my collection! I found these two on the Old Navy website and I think I just might have to have them.... These floral beauties are only $12.50 each and the colours are amazing, this is the go-to accessory to throw on with a great pair of jeans and a white v-neck... Ahhh Fall is in the air!!

Smart Sale!!

Exciting News Shopaholics!! Smart Set is taking an additional 50% off their already reduced merchandise.... You can find some amazing deals ladies so get there now before things get picked over... They have some great work and weekend wear and the accessories are sooo cute, I bought 3 belts and tons of earrings and bracelets too!

White Hot Or Not?

I am all for white dresses and for every season too, I don't discriminate but I am not sure how I feel about the white shoe combination... I kind of like jazzing up my white dresses using pops of colour with accessories or bright ballet flats or perhaps a great metallic gladiator heel... What do you think, does this look too harsh or is it a fashion do??

Deal Of The Day

Head to your local Banana Republic today after 5pm and get 25% off your purchase of $100 or more!! They are unveiling the new Fall collection in stores today so this is a great opportunity to start investing in your Fall wardrobe... I am hoping to get to my BR tonight, I was just checking out the website and this is a new look from the collection that I have posted... I want EVERYTHING!!

Kate In The Shade

I love Kate Hudson's effortless style, she is the epitome of bohemian chic but can do cool downtown girl about town with ease!! She has been spotted in New York and London recently sporting these Ralph Lauren Collection Ricky ($250) tortoise shell shades looking totally adorable! So I went on a mission and I found a very similar but much less expensive pair at Forever 21 today for $6.80!! What do you think of this shape? I'm loving them... I always tend to go for inexpensive sunglasses for two reasons, I lose or shall I say misplace them constantly but the price alleviates the guilt of owning over 40 pairs!!

Fabulous Finds

So the mission was successful! We had a great day of shopping and lunching, two of my favourite things to do... I found the cutest pair of high waisted belted shorts from Club Monaco for $29 and a light knit cream v-neck top from French Connection for $24... I also found this awesome deep pink tote from French Connection for $25 and these gorgeous snakeskin sandals from Sterling for $30... Perfect way to wrap up my holidays!!

Back From The Beach!

Sorry for the lack of posts but I just enjoyed a fantastic week at the beach with my family and had no internet access!!! Sooo I am figuring the best way to spend my last day of holidays tomorrow would be to SHOP!! I am heading to one of my favourite malls which is Square One and I'm rested and ready to do some damage! I will post all of my buys and bargains tomorrow when I get back... I have been gobbling up all the Fall fashion mags so I am looking for some transitional pieces and I am totally open to a summer bargain or two! Great to be back!!

Reese Rocks

I love Reese Witherspoon's wardrobe, she does everyday street style with ease... I love this army green cargo jacket paired with an eyelet summer dress and fedora, this is a great transition piece to move towards Fall weather in ... she looks so chic and adorable!! I think she is one of my favourite fashionistas, I am always looking at her for outfit ideas and fashion inspiration...

Eva Cool

Could Eva Mendes look any cooler catching a flight the other day? I love the floral sundress and cognac wedge sandals, this is an easy breezy summer look that can go from day to night for any gal... Eva is so stunning and although she is a red carpet siren its nice to see her everyday style is so chic and cute... p.s. LOVE the shades and neutral oversize bag!

Sunshine Style

Kate Bosworth is such a fashionista, she does casual cool style with ease... These are some of my favourite looks she has recently sported around L.A. this summer... I think my fave is the tie-dye dress she wore to Coachella, but I love the boyfriend jeans and cute floral frock also!! Her neutral taupe suede gladiator sandals work with all these style combinations, a definite shoe must have for every gal!
