Sonya of Class Is Internal sported the most amazing floral bomber jacket in last week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook, and it got us thinking. There are so many fun ways to wear floral that we’ve yet to explore – unchartered sartorial territory! And so off we went to find fresh new ways to wear our favourite type of print, including tracking down the aforementioned bomber by ASOS ($158).
From Joe Fresh‘s cheerful tulip print shorts ($39) to Anna-Karin Karlsson‘s to-die-for cat eye sunglasses with carved roses (USD$840) to Mary Katrantzou‘s too-cool-for-school printed stretch denim jacket ($1,265), check out the gallery below for 30 of the freshest floral pieces calling our name (and yours!) this spring.

Last week, Sasha of So Sasha declared that she was embracing the wide leg pant movement with an eye-catching pair of red trousers that had us seeing green. Suddenly our skinny jeans looked a bit lacking and we found ourselves on the hunt for some wide-legged action of our own.
Feeling ready to bring the wide leg silhouette back into your wardrobe rotation too? From a powder blue pair by ASOS to a classic pleated pair by Express to a bronze lamé pair by Gucci, we tracked down 13 pairs of the chicest wide leg trousers out there right now. Will you be giving the wide leg pant a test drive this spring?
Ever since she was crowned the winner of the Toronto Fashion Incubator New Labels 2013 competition, we’ve been waiting patiently for the big reveal of Sarah Stevenson‘s exclusive capsule collection for New Labels sponsor Target. Well, the wait is finally over and we’re delighted to find that the Toronto-based designer has created an offering that perfectly marries her romantic aesthetic with Target’s pocketbook-friendly prices.
“When I found out that I was going to be doing a line for Target, it was important for me that the Target collection be really reflective of who I am as a brand,” said Sarah. Happily for us, that means florals, florals and more florals. “I look for inspiration everywhere, but I always end up doing florals…I’ll re-interpret florals in many different ways.” And we can’t get enough of it.
Sarah Stevenson for Target launches in select Canadian stores on March 23. Check out the lookbook below – what’s on your wish list so far?

Lily of Bleed For Fashion donned a lovely bright red tulle skirt to celebrate Valentine’s Day in last week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook, and we were enamoured. Styled to perfection, it was a very girly girl skirt tempered by a Kenzo tiger sweatshirt in the same hue.
Want to get the look? So do we, so a new skirt or two is obviously in order. Tulle, florals, lace – check out 10 of the girliest skirts on the market right now in the gallery below.
While the rest of us are unstylishly trudging around in snow boots of the fairly unattractive kind, Justine of Jetset Justine rocked a pair of incredibly cool statement heels in last week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook. Though we may be cold, our spirit isn’t (yet) broken, so we embarked on a search for shoes with eye-catching heels that will make your jaw drop.
What we found was 10 pairs of to-die-for shoes featuring everything from Swarovski crystals and bamboo to butterflies and even mermaids. Whomever coined the phrase “hate to see you go, but love to see you leave” was surely alluding to footwear with insanely gorgeous statement heels like the pairs in the gallery below. Right?
Bianca and Dani of Kastor & Pollux rocked the loveliest ALDO perfume bottle clutches (only $35!) in last week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook, and we adored their whimsical ensembles. An immediate need for an uber cute statement bag obviously arose, so we took to the internets for our weekly, err daily, online shopping session.
From Falconwright‘s bubble gum pink eye-print leather clutch ($68) to Kate Spade‘s ‘Paris and the Single Girl’ book clutch (USD$328) to the queen of whimsy Charlotte Olympia‘s ‘Dial’ telephone perspex clutch (USD$1,895), we found 15 super chic and totally adorable bags we – and you! – need in your life. Check out the gallery below – which one (or two or three!) are you coveting along with us?
Sarah Jessica Parker‘s first collection for her new shoe line has finally been unveiled in all its glory. With the launch date of February 28 just around the corner, that gives you SJP fans plenty of time to save up your lunch money and finalize your shopping lists.
The actress-turned-designer, in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus, has created a line-up of classic, no frills styles. Says Parker, “I’m a firm believer in quality and timelessness and have created this collection with the hopes that women will love wearing it for years to come.”
Check out the gallery below for a gander at SJP’s first shoe design efforts, which will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom. What’s the verdict – would the collection get the Carrie Bradshaw stamp of approval? Or yours, for that matter?

The polar vortex continues, and though keeping warm and looking chic while doing so is proving to be a challenge for some (us!), not so for Stephanie Sterjovski of the self-titled blog. The Toronto-based blogger donned an uber-chic striped faux fur jacket in last week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook, and we absolutely loved the look.
There aren’t any fur jackets, faux or otherwise, in our closet, so a quick search for a fab piece or two to fill the void was in order. What we found was 15 glorious faux fur options from which to choose, including chubby coats, moto jackets, gilets and more. And did we mention most of them are currently on clearance, rendering them nearly impossible to resist? Happy shopping!
London-based shoe designer Sophia Webster has a knack for the whimsical, and we’ve become big fans of her playful creations ever since we had the chance to admire her work up close and personal when she paid The Room at Hudson’s Bay a visit last fall. We still haven’t gotten our hands on a pair of her beauties though, and we’re thinking her Resort 2014 collection is about to change that.
Enter ‘Lilico’, a gorgeous sandal with flower embellishments, scalloped trims, patent polka dots and striped stiletto heels to boot. Essentially, it’s everything girly combined into one very lovely shoe. Obviously, we have to have it.
The Sophia Webster ‘Lilico’ is available at Net-a-porter for USD$595. Happy Valentine’s Day to us?
Our obsession with statement necklaces has been going strong for quite some time now, but Jentine of My Edit‘s look in last week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook alerted us to the fact that we haven’t been giving due attention to another big accessories trend: the statement earring.
Our necks are all adorned with bling, but what about our earlobes? We obviously had to address the gaping hole in our jewelry box immediately, and found many gorgeous options with which to do so. From delightfully ostentatious chandelier earrings to uber-cool ear cuffs and from pocketbook-friendly options from H&M and ASOS to investment pieces from Lanvin and Oscar de la Renta, check out the gallery below for 20 of our favourites to shop right now.
