Canada Fashion Jobs – Blinded By The Brights

Friday, November 25th, 2011

If you’re like me, with a closet overflowing with neutral hues and in dire need of excitement, a pair of eye catching coloured jeans is all you need. Denim in shades of cobalt blue, bright red, lemon yellow or rich purple can be spotted all over the streets and in stores this season. And with so many ways to wear them, your wardrobe will thank you. Coloured jeans speak in volumes when paired with simple white tees. Better yet, wear them with a similar tone for a monochromatic look or alternatively, channel one of the biggest trends this season and opt for a different shade on top for a colour blocking look.

Peruse through our favourite street style looks and check out our favourites at all price points:

1. Current/Elliott The Ankle Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans ($170), available at TNT.

2. J Brand 811 Mid-Rise Skinny ($169), available at Aritzia.

3. Citizens of Humanity Avedon Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans ($188), available at Revolve Clothing.

4. Sandro Poete Mid-Rise Skinny ($280), available at Net-a-Porter.

5. Pixie Curved Denim ($56), available at Vero Moda.

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Celeb Spotlight: Zoe Saldana

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Best known for her role in Avatar and now with her latest flick Columbiana, Zoe Saldana is seizing the movie scene by storm. Not only is she admired on the big screen, she also has incredible style. From simple to retro chic, here are a few Zoe-approved looks to inspire you for the upcoming season.

Color Blocking

This trend is certainly a huge hit this fall, but don’t be afraid to had a fun element to your outfit, be it feathers, sequins, or a fun accessory. Who said cold weather has to mean gloomy clothes?

What better way to transition from summer to fall with a sweater dress? It’s cozy and can be paired with cute flats or boots. Try a classic colour with a colourful accessory, or opt for a bold print with neutral footwear.

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Fashionsign Magazine

What’s brewing in the local fashion scene? Fashionsign has you covered. Raw coverage of behind the scenes photo shoots, step-by-step D.I.Y. guides and inspiring images give a rare glimpse of fashion in the real world.

Calgary Fashion

Everything you need to know about the local fashion scene is at CalgaryFashion.ca. Find out about product launches, store openings, art retrospectives and more to satisfy your style cravings. Our favourite part about the blog? Its straightforward and raw approach to fashion news.

Lions Lace Lattes

Lions and lace and lattes, oh my! Blogger Ashley muses about her latest adventures, from her mini weekend getaways to posing for the cameras at Fashionsign Magazine. Who else could make a trip to the wilderness look so glamourous?

C’est Classique

Jasmine, Kaila, Rebecca and Charmaine are your four new best friends – or at least, the girls you wish you had around during a fashion dilemma. Whether they are beachside, shooting hoops or walking the dogs, these ladies rock their unique sense of style. C’est classique, indeed!

Marie a la Mode

If we had to reduce our summary of Miss Marie’s blog to only four words, we would simply say, “We want her wardrobe!” This stylish maven documents her killer outfits while dishing about the latest fashion events and her favourite new beauty products. Gotta love her signature blonde fringe!

Amy Flying a Kite

Amy flies a kite, eats Vietnamese, wanders through the wild and rocks fur like no other. She showcases her vintage-inspired style with artistic imagery and dreamy, poetic musings, making this blog a true source of inspiration.

Style Guy Jared

“There is something lovely about seeing a woman pulled together and looking her best,” says Jared. And there is something spectacular about a man with who understands the lost art of dressing. Style Guy delivers an entertaining perspective on the world of fashion, offering an honest opinion about local attire (Uggs to the theatre are a major faux pas!) drawing on unique inspirations such as grandmothers, and showcasing his stunning portfolio.

Dress Me Dearly

A little bit of lace, high-waists and good taste make Dress Me Dearly a blog to inspire. Paying tribute to retro-inspired looks, sharing tips on perfecting the red lip, and offering up styling tricks for the latest trends are just a few of the great posts you will find from Janis. Another reason why you should check out her blog? She knows a thing or two about a great pair of heels.

Hump days just got a little bit better with Wardrobe Wednesday. Vickie of Adventures in Fashion highlights her favourite things, but with a fun twist. Check out her You Tube Channel for musings on her latest finds and beauty experiences. Two words: girl crush!

Tall Freckled Fashionista

Blogger Joyce is one very good reason to love freckles. This girl embraces her features while staying classy in her outfit posts. Celeb style, shopping chronicles, weekly highlights and street style can satiate the appetite of a serious fashionista.

Boyhood Uniformity

The cool kids behind Boyhood Uniformity not only seek out the hottest fashion events in the city, but they also put together some killer fashion editorials. Jane and Emily share their love of random things (giraffes, gold zippers and penguins are just a few of their likes). They are just the kind of girls you would want to hang out with!

High Gloss White

Fashion is a lifestyle and Monsieur Andrew knows it.  The blogger and designer behind High Gloss White carries his distinct sense of style in his ensembles, imagery and website. We love a man that can stylize from head to (inter)net!

Two and the City

Fashion, fitness and flavour are the main attractions at Two and the City, but this blog is like no other. Thirty-somethings Lindsay and Susan chronicle their fabulous world in the city of Edmonton with the aim of proving that age has no boundaries.

Rotating Compass

In need of a fashion vacation? The jet setting fashionista behind Rotating Compass, Jessica, documents her personal adventures, style inspirations and covers local fashion. The coolest part about her style diary is that she rocks a look that is chic and effortless.

Canada Fashion Jobs – Ashley Rowe Spring 2011

Canada’s favourite splatter queen Ashley Rowe is back, having traded Jackson Pollock for Woodstock.  Like Toronto fashion heavies Greta Constantine, Evan Biddell and Joeffer Caoc, Rowe eschewed LG Fashion Week in favour of staging her own show on October 14.  Held in a top-secret studio/warehouse in the city’s west end (guests were notified of the location the day before the show), models traipsed around the room in long, baggy, tie-dyed creations.  A definite departure from her trademark splats, the latest collection gives off a relaxed sixties vibe.  We love her use of colour and the long, lean lines of the garments.

Canada Fashion Jobs – Fall Accessories

September is my January. It’s that time of year when I make my style resolutions: what to keep, what to store away, and what to invest in for the upcoming season. On the top of my shopping list? Accessories – from beautiful boots to luxurious handbags, the abundance that fall has to offer are difficult to resist. Check out a few of my favourite accessory trends of the season:

1. MILITARY: The Military trend remains a top look for Fall. Look for buckles, straps and industrial detailing, like this bootie by Sam Edelman (This boot gets bonus points for being named after my home!) The Vancouver Boot ($215, available at various retailers across Canada and online).

2, 3. NATURE: Beautiful creatures and nature elements dangled from models’ ears, crept on necklines and wrists all over the fall runways. This bib necklace by Candace Ang makes a statement without looking overdressed ($185, available at Goldwyn Online).
I am a bird lover and scarf-fiend, so this piece by JUMA is a must-have on my list ($200, available online and at LynnSteven Vancouver).

4, 5. HERITAGE: Fall 2010 marks a return to the classics. Clean lines, timeless shapes, and luxurious materials hark back to the old days. Think Hermes, Mulberry and Max Mara as inspiration for this look. Until I am able to purchase a Birkin, I will settle for this purse from Urban Outfitters ($48). The classic box shape makes it easy to work into my everyday look.
Hats are the new cool. Try a wide-brimmed fedora, bowler or parlor hat like this twenties style by Brixton ($50, at 80s Purple online).

6,7. FUR/SHEARLING: Fur, faux or real, is back in a big way. Accessories with accents of fur or shearling are a great way to experiment with this trend if you aren’t quite ready to go full out and cop a coat. Urban Outfitters Faux Fur Hobo Bag ($58) and Aldo sherpa-lined clogs ($80).

8. GOTH: Skulls, skeletons and scary stuff are inspiration for the latest looks in accessory trends. Pamela Love (seen on Rumi Neely of FashionToast) creates beautiful, eyecatching pieces. Pamela Love Sterling Silver talon ring ($300, available at Obakki Vancouver and Jonathan + Olivia Toronto, and online at Net-A-Porter).

Browns ID bootiesOlita bootiesTYMS booties

The more casual red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival showcases celebrities’ personal style, and no one looked as effortlessly chic as Marion Cotillard. At the premiere for her film “Little White Lies” she added the right amount of edge to a simple frock by Lefranc Ferrant with Dior Cavaliere booties, a gold cuff, and bright blue nails.

To achieve Marion’s je ne sais quoi, you can splurge for the real thing, or try these other military-inspired ankle boots.

1. Browns ID booties ($248), available at Browns.

2. Olita booties by Boutique 9 ($230), available at Nine West.

3. TYMS peep-toe booties ($140), available at Aldo.
