That In Between Weather and the Wardrobe

I hate this time of year.  It’s not cold enough to be completely bundled up, but definitely not warm enough to be strutting around in sandals and capris.  It’s that in between time again.  And yes, I’m still stuck in my ugly tall boots.  They’re dirty from the snow (I don’t bother cleaning, since they’re […]

Sweater Dresses: Comfortable, Cozy and Great for Fall

I’ve meant to post these for a while, but other events, such as Diner en Blanc and New York Fashion Week have taken priority. But now that it’s officially fall, I really should post something on one of my favourite fall/winter staples – the sweater dress.  I think I have at least three or four […]

Gorgeus Deep Shades at Carolina Herrera Don’t Disappoint

I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed by Carolina Herrera.  The looks are always gorgeous, with season-appropriate colours, and is always lady-like and grown-up.  And this continues for the Fall/Winter 2013 season.  Shiny, sparkly embellished, many made with silk, abound in this collection, but unlike other designers, the pieces manage to stay within Ms. Herrera’s […]

A Russian-Inspired Holiday: Banana Republic Holiday 2012

DelectablyChic! was invited to attend Banana Republic’s holiday 2012 preview last week. Many of the pieces in this collection feature designs inspired by the upcoming film, Anna Karenina. The film, which will previewed at the Toronto International Film Festival this coming September (and opening in theatres in October), stars Keira Knightley and Jude Law. The […]

Québec City: Celebrating Winter in La Belle Province

Although it’s been a relatively mild winter this year in Canada, the idea of traveling to a place colder than where you live may seem a bit odd. But a trip to Québec’s capital to experience the best that winter has to offer is definitely worth bundling up for. From the annual Carnaval de Québec […]

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 […]

Belted Coats Mark Burberry Prorsum’s Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection

Cynthia Cheng Mintz Perhaps one of the most iconic brands of Britain, Burberry presented its Autumn/Winter 2011 line Monday afternoon.  The runway looked very long compared to other shows, and many of the models donned po’boy caps.  The “it” look, it seems are belted coats, with several looks, both shorter and longer, being presented this […]

Dark, Shiny and Plain for Vivienne Tam’s Fall/Winter 2011 Collection

Cynthia Cheng Mintz While many designers are emphasizing colour for Fall/Winter 2011, Vivienne Tam decided to stick with what traditionally works best – plain darks.  Her show opened with a dark runway, with the first few models wearing dark colours such as greys/blacks, especially for pants and skirts.  Tops were a little more varied, with some […]

Tea Time at Starbucks!

Cynthia Cheng Mintz You may have heard about Starbucks‘ recent logo makeover, which keeps the so-called “Siren,” yet taking away its name, Starbucks Coffee (the new logo is set to launch in the spring).  Maybe there’s a reason for that.  It could be that Starbucks wants to be known for more than just coffee, such as […]
