On Trend: Masculine Blazers

A blazer is one of the easiest ways to embrace the menswear look and is the perfect transition piece as we move into spring (eventually it will warm up, c’mon Mother Nature – this is Vancouver!). It’s effortlessly cool, extremely chic and oh-so-iconic – think Katharine Hepburn. When selecting the perfect menswear-influenced blazer to add to…

On Trend: Boy Bags

So what exactly is a boy bag (and no, I don’t mean Chanel’s VERY pricey version)? To me, there are traditionally 2 types of bags that fit into the “boy” bag category – satchels and saddlebags. A satchel (also called a messenger bag) generally has both a flap and a long strap. Some also have top handles so…

Thankfully, most make-up brands have created eyeshadow palettes full…

No matter what you call it: khaki, olive, army, moss…muted green suede is dominating shoe store shelves. It’s the perfect transition colour from winter to spring and since it’s a neutral, it’s incredibly easy to incorporate into your new refined wardrobe.
