Style Inspiration: Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe dresses evereyone in Hollywood from Cameron Diaz to Eva Mendes and does it to perfection.  She has a sense of style which is unique, glamerous and a litlte bohemian.  She loves fur, anything that glitters and of course Chanel.  When wearing denim she loves a great wideleg and usually sports J Brand and 7 from all mankind.  With dresses she usually wears them really long and with a great print.  This girl is also known for lovin her high heels, and when I say high, I mean sky high.  But who can blame her!

Celeb Look of the Week: Rachel Bilson

The many fall looks of Rachel Bilson!

I totally worship this actress' style and clothes!

This fall, she seems to be loving her boyfriend jackets, knee-high boots and black studded purse.

Boutique Profile: JAMES

James boutique is like a treasure tucked away from the busy streets of St.Catherine.  As soon as you walk in you are greeted by friendly salespeople (Clara and Pascale) who provide this very intimate shopping experience.  The selection of jeans, casual wear, dresses and accessories have been specifically selected by the three owners who have similar but distinct styles.  This boutique has a great selection of brands for stand out pieces in your wardrobe like American Retro, Graham and Spencer and Madison Marcus.  They also have fabulous accesories from Rebecca Minkoff and Felix Roy for bags and Right Hand Gal (Montreal based) for cool jewelry.  There is also a large variety of jeans from Genetic, J Brand, Paige, and Hudson to name a few.  This is my favorite store in Montreal and you guys should all have a visit!  Check them out at 4910 Sherbrooke West.

As you can see the store has a great layout and presentation..
 It's got that closet-like feel (one of the ones I dream of)!

Lust Item : Anything fur!!!!

I am really loving everything from fur accessories,vests to short fur coats.  Check out these great items from Harricana, a Montreal based company who uses recycled furs to create new items.  I love the concept and its environmentally friendly approach.  Here are some of my favorite items from their collection.  You can see these and more from  their collection on their webiste:

Love the way that the vest is paired with a simple tee and lace up pants.  Similar faux fur vests can be found at Zara (see below).  Again it is paired with a simple top and leggings.  Let the vest speak for itself!

Celeb Look of the Week - Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is always such a stylish and classy lady, on top of being an amazing actress!

She wore this outfit for an appearance on Good Morning America. This is such a cute fall outfit!

With thicker tights (higher denier; here, she is probably wearing 80 denier), dresses and short skirts can continue to be worn during the long winter months.
Why is she begging? Reese shouldn't have to beg for anything!

She's wearing grey booties, that were Sabby V's lust item of the week a couple of weeks ago.
Hmm the red sole makes me suspect these are Louboutin's!

 I love how this dress cinches at the waist and the skirt is just loose at the hips and thighs, giving it a cute look. The color and short sleeves still give it a more adult look, making it appropriate work attire (except the skirt is maybe a little too short).
I love the color of this dress (navy). I don't wear navy enough... some kid in high school once told me that navy and black together was a 'fashion-don't' and I've been traumatized ever since... LOL

Hmm, I really wonder what they're talking about?
She's got this face of "Um dude, that was funny, but really inappropriate."

Soïa & Kyo - Montreal Fashion Week

Soïa & Kyo fashion show at Montreal Fashion Week
Yup, I'm a little belated on this post given that Montreal Fashion Week was already more than a couple of weeks ago! My bad. The week of Montreal Fashion Week was a crazy week for both Sabby V and I as we not only had the shows, but we had to get ready for a work-trip to Miami a few days later! We've been in Miami for the last two weeks, and so that's why we've been so quiet!

So back to Montreal Fashion Week--we got the chance to attend the Soïa & Kyo fashion show at Marché Bonsecours. We were super excited about this cause both of us just looove their coats!

Here are some pics from their Spring/Summer collection.
BIG THANK YOU again to Peipei for being are amazing photographer!!!

The fashion show opened and closed with Karine Vanasse, Quebec actress and star, best-known for her role in Séraphin, Un homme et son péché (such a sad movie!). She also just recently hosted Les Jutras...  Anyway, we don't have a picture of her opening the show, but we've got a couple of her in the last showcased coat (scroll down to take a look).




Check out the cool pattern in the inner lining!



I love the shoes here too... I wonder where they are from? They look very Rudsak-y...


I LOVE THIS COAT! And I'm absolutely loving grey these days!

Oh and this one too... I love them all equally!





I looove this coat too. Look at the detailing! And the 1/2 or 3/4 sleeves are good for spring/summer for sure!


Karine Vanasse:


What a great show it was! Soia & Kyo outerwear only started in 2004, but now are sold all over the world. We always get such a warm & fuzzy when we hear about local success stories!!!
