Banished for the past decade as decidedly (and unfairly!) passé, flares and bells are back in a big way for Fall and beyond. If you’re bored with your Skinnies and Boyfriends and craving are a more femme silhouette, scoop up a pair or two of these uber-flattering jeans for Fall.

Are you ready to rock flares again, or are skinnies and boyfriends too ingrained in your style DNA to revisit this look? Let’s discuss!
Are you bold enough to wear a kimono?
The notion of being a shrinking violet (or cherry blossom?) in this statement piece is virtually impossible- you’re going to stand out! With their bright colours and intricate motives, kimonos are the perfect toppers for dreary winter days. How glam would #4 look paired with black basics, a tassel necklace and a killer pair of heels? Love!
Have a wonderful weekend, Fashaloonies! x

Radiant Orchid may be the colour of the year, but light blue is the pastel that will always be #1 in my style books. This year, I’m hoping to ride the popularity of lilac and scoop of as many pastel blue pieces as possible for Spring and beyond.
What’s your favourite pastel?

With nostalgia at an all-time high, the holiday season is the perfect time to rock retro glamour in a big way. What better way to make an entrance than in a fashionable fur (or faux fur) stole? A fur stole practically screams “glamour” which is exactly the look you want as you work the party circuit. This season, leave the confidence-killing shrug at home (a piece with a name so indifferent should NEVER be permitted vacancy in your closet!) and wrap up in something that let them know you came to party, dahlin!

Wrap up some sweet style with this oh-so-flattering skirt. Reed thin? Gives a little extra oomph. Big ol’ booty? Balance it out with plenty of visual interest on the front. Happy n’ hippy? The asymmetrical knee-length option narrows in on the slimmest part of the leg. Get the idea? 😉 What version will you reach for to wrap up in style?

Ladies, we thought we were going hell for mixed leather options last Fall, but apparently that was a mere sampling- it’s on everything this year! Be it faux or the real deal, there’s no escaping a little skin this season. Are you still keen on this combo?

Pale pink is having a big moment for Fall- it’s everywhere! An unusual colour for autumn, but there’s nothing like a soft pink bubble coat to lighten up a dreary fall day. Will you swap your oxblood for a little bubble gum goodness this winter?

I saw these puppies (too easy!) all over Paris last year, and it looks like our retailers have jumped on the trend for Fall 2013.
Who doesn’t love a cute sweater for Fall? Practical, adorable and great conservation piece! Doggonit, I love them! Which is your favourite?

If there’s one print that practically screams “Fall!”, it’s plaid. The heavy print is perfectly complementary for cooler temps (can you imagine wearing plaid in the summer?!) and there are so many chic offerings available right now. What you about? Are you mad for plaid this Fall?
1. H&M Trousers: Scottish tartan is my absolute favourite plaid. How cool would these trousers look with a black or oxblood tasselled loafer? Perfect fall combo.
2. ASOS Zip Pencil Skirt: A pencil skirt with a centre zip is universally flattering.
3. Kate Spade Handbag: Fluoro yellow for Fall? Paired with houndstooth and gold hardware, it works.
4. Zara Coat: Oversized, plaid and oxblood, a.k.a Fall 2013 home run hit.
5: Aritzia Shirt: The feminine cut of buffalo-check shirt keeps it from straying into Al Borland territory.
