It’s fall–time when a young girl’s heart turns to thoughts of Apple and what’s new. Turn those thoughts into action and visit our Apple store ASAP. By now you’ve heard that the iPhone 5 is out–a little bit taller and thinner (what girl doesn’t love that), with a slightly bigger screen and a few more sleek colours to choose from, among many other updates. And there’s also NEW models of the iPod touch and iPod nano for hours of fun, and earlier this year the company brought out new versions of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. My personal … Read More »

12.09.2012 + Upper Canada Mall + 1 Comment

With such a limited time to wear sandals in summer, thinking of boots seems like a fashion crime, but leave it to retailers such as Browns and suddenly you can’t wait to cover up your toes.  I love my open toed sandals and bright pedicure, but give me a pair of tall leather equestrian boots and I’m ready to jump into the leaves.  Something about the sleek and classic look with a pair of tights, a cozy jacket and a pumpkin latte from Starbucks says “bring on fall”.

I am also really excited to see pointed toe pumps making … Read More »

What the Most Stylish Women Have in Common

29.08.2012 + Upper Canada Mall + No Comments

 

What do Gwyneth, Tilda and Catherine all have in common? It’s simple: personal style in buckets. I wonder, “how do they do it—how do they make it look so easy?” There are probably lots of reasons, and I loved this article from Harper’s Bazaar about the secrets of Today’s 20 Most Stylish Women. Here’s a snippet:
