Rockin’ Rockports!
4/3/15 As I approach my 40’s, (yes I said it), I find myself less concerned about my image and more on how I truly feel. All I want is to be comfortable in my own skin. After all, true beauty starts on the inside right? Of course, being involved in the fashion industry requires me to work on a person’s surface look, but these days, you no longer have to sacrifice comfort for style. Right now, I see fashion trends where wearing Adidas sweats are in, for example. Or leggings as pants, among the teens. Something that I don’t agree with, but that’s another story. But my point is, being comfortable is finally fashionable! Not that I’d wear Adidas pants in my 40’s, but I wouldn’t wear yoga pants in public either. I still have to maintain a level of style, as a wardrobe consultant. For someone who’s on their feet lots, comfort and style go hand in hand. If I can’t walk in the shoes for more than an hour AND look good, then forget about it. As I approach my 40’s, I can honestly say, I’ve become wiser…well, when it comes to developing my own style and owning […]
My Top 5 Summer Trends for 2014
You don’t have to be a part of New York Fashion Week to experience this season’s hottest styles. Check out what my hottest Summer must haves are, besides sunscreen and water, ladies: 1) Maxi Dresses – they’re come in different shapes, with the same length but all together cute. Throw on a denim jacket on any of these gorgeous dresses and you’re good to go, whether it’s a stroll down the beach or outdoor shopping at a night market in Italy.       2) Dramatic Prints – This season, it seems like there’s an overload of prints in every form. There’s not the usual floral prints, but there’s geometric patterns, color blocking and sometimes all of these all on one garment. It’s pretty wild! But hey, I say the more the merrier…if done right. The best thing to do with these prints is not to over do it, unless you can pull it off.       3) Tea length/ High waisted long skirts – These skirts are a must because you can dress them up or down and I’m all about versatility. Both these styles can also add a touch of style to your summer wardrobe.   4) […]
UGGly Winter Boots? Part 1
I don’t know about you, but I’ve just about had it with the cold weather. By this time, most Winnipeggers are pretty sick and tired of the snow and cold. For some, January/February is the time to head out to much warmer places like Mexico or Cuba, rather than stick around for the cold. But for those of us who are stuck here, temperature in the -10 would be like being on a beach. Unfortunately, along with the cold, we are still stuck with wearing layers, snow zone signs, warming up the car for 10 minutes beforehand and tons of snowbanks. For this season, I relish in getting prepared and facing whatever Winnipeg temperatures throw at me. I have to feel warm and wear good footwear in order to brave our temperatures. As a busy mom, I am forever running around and driving, so it’s important for me to be able to wear a sensible pair of boots like Sorels. I’m not talking about Doc Martens either. They are more of a fashion boot than anything and not at all practical for  Winnipeg Winters. And although, not too long ago I wasn’t a fan of Ugg boots. In fact, I was […]
2012 Fall Must Haves and How to Wear Them
As Summer comes to an end, some of us are either dreading the end of everyday sunshine filled with hot days , lazing around with the kids or embracing the Fall and  looking forward to routine once again. I, for one have come to terms with the leaves turning color, the sun setting earlier and the cooler days. More importantly, I look forward to the newest Fall fashion! The basic Fall staple colors are back, like jewel tones, animal print and khaki colors, as well as heavy/thin knit sweaters, boyfriend jeans, booties and wedges for footwear. But this season offers more texture and edge to basic Fall looks! Here’s a glimpse of the hottest items this Fall has to offer and some tips on how to wear them: 1) The sweater – In addition to the heavier, chunkier sweater, there’s a new sweater in town. Although, the thicker sweaters are still popular this season, I’m seeing alot of thinner, even see through styles that can be layered over a dress or a skirt. Here’s one in a grass green color: Wear with skinny jeans or over a dress, long or short. If wearing a short dress, or even a skirt, […]

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 […]

This summer’s to-die-for footwear fashion
Introducing, this season’s Mary Janes. These are so wicked because of the way the classic shoe has taken on different styles but yet stays the same. You know they’re still Mary Janes.

Check out this summer’s fiercest footwear bu Gucci – black patent leather stilettos
I was checking out this summer’s Gucci collection and was slightly unimpressed by the collection, however the stilettos captured my eyes. They were the most hottest, fiercest stiletto heels I have ever seen this season.
