Winter Highs…
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope everyone in Winnipeg is enjoying the mild weather we’re having lately. It’s not -50! I’m not sure if we’re getting -50 back any time soon but I am definitely taking advantage right now. Yes, I’m talking about wearing lighter, less bulker Winter gear. For Christmas, I got a new coat by Minimum(shown here) which is more suitable for Fall/Spring,  but I had to rock it. I think it’s pretty wonderful and perfect for me. In the Winter, I usually choose comfort and practicality over being fashionable. Gone are the days of wearing hot leather booties in the snow with a cute peacoat. Not only is it not practical, it’s also uncomfortable. In -50 cold, I’ll be give me my parka and Sorels any day. What can I say, I’m older and kind of wiser now. Thankfully, these days, it’s only in the late teens and not a ridiculous high windchill. So, out comes the lighter, less bulkier, more fashionable gear. I’m wearing my Minimum coat, which has a fabulous cowl neck, biker zipper and length up to my knees. Again, not too tight, loose enough but stylish. I got this stylish mom thing down. I […]
Scarf, Shmarf!
In Winnipeg, it can be a daunting task to keep warm during the Winter season. We are all too familiar with getting up earlier than usual in the morning so that we can layer on our winter gear. And with school kids, add another 15 mins per child. Fortunately, we’ve been lucky that the weather is has been milder than what we anticipate. These days, it’s almost pointless to wear the Canada Goose or even the Sorel’s on some days. Gone are the days where we have to wrap our scarf 4 times around ourselves and the kids. At the mall, the winter accessories are on sale by the bins. Lots and lots of “infinity scarfs” that were hot last winter and now, just sitting in a store collecting dust, priced at $5. It’s because they are too much fabric for our neck and our current climate. Definitely, there’s no need for ear muffs either.But as your trusty stylist, I have found the perfect “neck warmer”. Introducing…the Muffler! It’s handmade by a girlfriend of mine and comes in many colours. She charges $10 and there is no need for all the fabric that a regular scarf gives. With the Muffler, […]

Something for the Boys
12/8/08   Hey guys! Here’s a little somethin’ somethin’ for you. This look, I’ve always loved on a guy…very clean, yet boyish. The straight cut of the coat gives a slimming effect which makes it work for all men’s body types. The cut of the jeans and the darker wash help elongate the whole look when put together. This is a guy that tells me he cares about the way he looks but doesn’t take himself too seriously. He’s in that place, on the way to manhood.  The military style coat, gives a look of polish and sophistication while the cut of the jeans, is just baggy enough but not sloppy. This look works with or without  the hat and is perfect for this season. Add a scarf for extra drama. Very classic!

Cha Cha Party
11/30/08 Last Thursday, I attended one of my favorite boutiques in the city’s customer appreciation party and even though I didn’t stay as long as I wanted, I still experienced the warm energy that I associate with Cha Cha palace. Every time I enter the 3 storey house, I can’t help but feel like I’m almost walking into my best friend’s house and then her, letting me raid her closet and Thursday was no exception. The staff, headed by the lovely Sandi Johnson were there to make us feel welcome and to show us the latest styles that they had to offer. The store was definitely buzzing that night as they even gave out surprise discounts. There was plenty of wine, champagne and SUSHI! But even on a regular day, the staff at Cha Cha are  quite warm and friendly. And this energy only adds and reflects the pieces that Cha Cha carries. On the first floor are the footwear, handbags, and jewellry, where you will see lines from Fly London, Lug and  Satya. The second floor is where I spent most of my time, and carries clothing lines such as OHM, Comfy, Metallicus, Free People, Beatrice Halloway just to […]
