She’s Got Coats of Many Colours: IFB Project #116

I try to avoid buying black or charcoal coats.  When everyone has a similar coloured coat, you just blend in with the rest.  Besides, winter’s cold and it gets dark early, so why do you want to…disappear?  One reason why I try to look for brighter colours (or at least, not something dark) when I’m […]

Trends and Normal People “Trying Too Hard”

Maybe I’m just getting old, but there are some trends I just don’t “get” or that I find a little rebellious.  I know that sometimes, it’s because people are just following what certain celebrities (mostly musicians like Lady Gaga or her clone, Nikki Minaj), but sometimes, I feel that regular people who dress that way, […]

So Who’s Excited for Marni at H&M?

Marni at H&M hits stores on March 8 and Hollywood celebrated its launch at a party a few days ago.  Held at a Hollywood area residence and hosted by Marni founder and creative director, Consuelo Castiglioni, attendees included well-known names such as Drew Barrymore, Freida Pinto, Milla Jovovich and Sophia Coppola, who directed the ad […]

Pretty, Bright Colours at Nanette Lepore

What I love about Nanette Lepore is her constant use of bright, bold colours, no matter the season.  There was very little black or grey and in general, the collections tend to arguably be predictable, but one can’t help but love the fact her use of colours just brighten up a dark winter day. There […]

BCBG is about Neutral Colour Blocking

I am actually okay with the upcoming Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection.  This is pleasantly surprising as the past few seasons haven’t been that great.  The fall collection is full of neutrals, with oranges continuing to be dominant.  Colour-blocking is strong as well, but it’s toned down a bit for the cooler season.  Two pieces of criticism […]

Marni for H&M: Spring-Summer 2012 Designer Collaboration!

dcsu8nehqag Just weeks after the frenzy known as Versace for H&M, the Swedish-based clothing company has announced its next designer collaboration.  In addition to an online-only (i.e. we North Americans don’t get to partake) encore for Versace, Italian brand Marni will have a collection of clothing and accessories for men and women starting March 8, […]

BCBG Spring-Summer 2012: Vibrant and Flowy, but Shapeless

Ever notice that BCBG’s runway collection looks very different from the “regular” pieces (suits, jersey dresses and evening gowns) sold at its own boutiques and department stores?  The Spring-Summer collection is probably no different, and was, once again, more unique.  Most of the dresses were at least tea length, asymetrical, with strappy, sleeveless or bare […]

Webitor’s Picks: Gorgeous Burgundies that Can Be Worn NOW!

Bordeaux, burgundy or whatever you want to call it, deep reds are IT for the fall.  They’re everywhere, from bags to clothes to shoes and cosmetics.  I wore burgundy (and grey) every day for six years when I was at the Bishop Strachan School (BSS), and though I don’t wear them together anymore, burgundy still […]

A Woman’s Make-up Collection: Personal and Tells a Story

Make-up is part of a typical North American’s beauty routine.  Some own a lot of make-up, while others have tiny collections.  Some have lots of different colours, while others have fewer.  I’m somewhere in the middle.  In any case, what a woman owns probably tells people a lot about her.  Judging from my collection, you’d […]
