Style Saturdays

We’re not completely out of the woods yet. Winter is not showing too many signs of letting up so our spring closet is going to have to stay on its hangers just a little bit longer. Layering is still a necessity and our friends, The Sams, are doing just that. Layering what they are wearing with coats and big scarves to keep warm, yet still stylish and trendy is a definite must for them. Giving you two ways to wear a big scarf, a little edgy by Sam P. paired with a leather jacket, and a bit more classic by Sam D. with a pea coat. Take a look at the full post on The Sams Blog, along with both outfit details!

It’s All Black and White

We shot this look with the beautiful Vancouver blogger, Jill from the August Diaries just a few weeks back. There’s something about the black and white that really does it for us! She’s wearing the #Bazzul bodycon dress a few ways here and killing it. The simplicity in the lines and silhouette overlaying the Vancouver city center backdrop really makes this a clean slate.

How to Wear: The Lustre Bad Reputation Dress Day 2

Ya gotta love a good American-Apparel-rough-around-the-edges-kind-of-shoot. Don’t I look kind of dazed and confused like said models?

Enough of the jokes!! I finally got around to put up day 2 of How to Wear the Lustre Bad Reputation dress, seen here with Rowen from House Dylanium (GOT reference must). Anyway, loved what photographer, Mike Solda, did here with the exposure and the lighting as we continue to try new things in the spirit of the New Year. The to-die-for shoes are the Miista Debra’s and currently selling out, so get yours if you’re not a size 9…or 8…

How to Wear: The Plaid Blanket Scarf

This edition of How To Wear was clearly shot before the huge snow storm that decided to cover Toronto.

Vanessa is wearing the sapphire Bazzul dress (currently sold out), Miista Ethel boots that looks like our inspiro Balenciaga pair, and her staple plaid blanket scarf from Zara. We love the time of day this look was shot and the blue and green hues that the dress and scarf picks up in the sky. Gotta love a simple, but chic look.

Jetset Justine

We are so excited to announce that one of our favourite Canadian fashion bloggers and good friend, Justine Iaboni, has recently re-branded her long-time blog WhateverEurotrash to Jetset Justine. This smart cookie not only works hard, but she knows just when to play hard *cough* *cough* on the Amalfi Coast *cough*.

We recently shot a project with her and Kenton fashion editor, Talya Macedo (@Talyalee) for our Shoppalu Winter cover. We’re totally feeling it. Go vintage fur or go home, right?

How to Wear: The Carolina Suede Jacket

Personally, I’m probably the least vague person you might ever meet. I wear my emotions on my sleeve, I hate BS and absolutely….no games (incredibles reference to “no capes”…if you’ve seen it). But ya know what? Sometimes a girl’s just gotta be a little bit less direct, right? We may run the world (thanks bey!) but being coy is an art….that I struggle with. HAH.

Check out the third day of How to Wear shot by Mike Solda. The Carolina Suede jacket is styled here with a vintage leather vest and vintage leather skirt all from Shoppalu. Our motto is you can never get enough leather or black. #BlackIsTheNewBlack

How to Wear: Carolina Suede Jacket

Day 2 of How to Wear the Caroline Suede Jacket is here. We played with the overcast tone of the day and went a little more Fall-esque with this look. Going tone on tone is not always easy…sometimes you end up looking like you’re colour-blind and forgot your primaries all together.

In this case, we went tone on tone on… TONE and plastered it green all over with a little black for some contrast. The good thing about this look is that the shapes and the silhouettes are very classic, but we wouldn’t recommend going wider shoulder pads with too oversized of a shirt and wide-legged pants. Essentially, keep it clean and lean.

This outfit is styled with a Caitlin Power shirt, Zara shoes, Graham and Spencer suede leggings and the Carolina Suede Jacket from Shoppalu. Pic shot by Mike Solda

How To Wear: The Vintage Suede Green Blazer

This week’s how to wear is the first time we got a photographer (Mike) and put the selfies away. I took the vintage suede green shoppalu jacket and paired it with my bike, Heidi (yes, it’s a she and yes, she has a name), an Alexander McQueen wool dress, bag from Zara and leopard print booties from the time I raided Gracie Carroll’s closet.

The thing I love about blazers is how versatile they are…which I know is what everyone says, but it’s for real! It makes you look profesh when you need to be and able to help you dress down casually when it’s the right time. Of course, it’s always exciting to add a bike into the mix. Let us know what you think!

Boardwalk with the Sams

We love working with local bloggers, stylists, photographers, creatives in general. Sam P from TheSams.com (you may know her as our resident junior buyer) and Sam D decided to borrow some pieces recently and put together these awesome Fall/Winter weekend looks. The vibe and the aesthetic of this shoot makes us want to curl up with a hot chocolate in hand and daze out of the window. Hope you enjoy!

Get the Dylanium Rowen Scarf here. Get the Lustre Concrete Jungle Pant here. Get the Jourdan Leather Pants here.
