Trina Turk for Banana Republic, Part 1: The Pisces Top

One of the items I purchased from the Trina Turk collection that Banana Republic recently released was the Pisces top.  I had thought about getting it in the warm combination (pinks, oranges and yellows), but decided on the cool version (turquoises, greens, blues, etc…) as it was more of a contrast than a compliment on […]

What I Wore to Mother’s Day Brunch

My husband and I took my parents to a delicious brunch on Mother’s Day at the club where I play tennis and I think we all ate way, way too much (there was just so much food, including poached salmon, tons of salads, a carving station and the most delicious dessert table).   I usually […]

Petite Fashion Challenge 15: Pinterest Faves

Hot Pink Pumps From the Odd Slipper!

When I found out about Sindy Sagastume’s  The Odd Slipper, a company that specializes in shoes for small feet (starts at size 3, ladies!), I knew I wanted to try it out. Being a size 4 1/2 or size 5, I have a hard time finding shoes at regular stores.  In fact, it’s become a […]

What I Wore at Toronto Fashion Week: A Week of Outfit Pics

I decided to post my week’s worth of Fashion Week outfits in one post rather than separate “Outfit of the Day” articles that everyone else seemed to be doing.  As usual, there was a lot of emphasis on wearing Canadian brands, so every day, I tried to incorporate at least ONE Canadian designer or brand […]

Marni at H&M: The Actual Loot!

Though the pieces were slightly too big (make that at least one size bigger than “normal” at H&M), I managed to make them work…well, as best as I could, anyway.  The first piece, one of the double sided dresses, something I was debating over – whether to get the top or the dress (which I […]
