After a few weeks of teasing from Mother Nature it appears that Spring is right around the corner which means it’s time to pack away all the wool sweaters and boots and bring out skirts, dresses and lots of colour!

The rule of “no white before Victoria Day” no longer stands as white is one of the hottest colours for Spring.  It’s a great starting pointing for building your Spring outfit since it pairs well with any colour.  Start off with a simple white tee, add a great pair of dress pants in a basic colour like navy, camel or be … Read More »

The launch of these two products is an obviously sign that Christmas and the holiday season are around the … Read More »

Fall is the official season of layering. As the crisp, cooler weather sets in we move towards layering our looks with scarves, jackets and tights. It’s the perfect season to experiment with texture and have some fun with statement accessories.

A unique piece can elevate any outfit and make your style shine. We’ve rounded up some great statement pieces from our retailers. For a fun yet polished look, think of pairing a knit … Read More »
