The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 3, 2014 Edition

Nelia Belkova of Style Blog, Toronto

Last week’s takeover of the Canadian style blogs by pretty dresses did not wane this week; ’tis the season, it seems.

This week, Liz sported the sweetest blue frock complete with bow and ruffles, Sonya paired a beautiful floral number with fierce leopard print pumps, and Nelia rocked an uber-cool printed Clover Canyon design (we’re obsessed).

Time to break out those dresses – special occasion not required.

Shop Like A Style Blogger: 20 Capes to Get Cozy In

The season’s first cape sighting on the Canadian style blogs happened last week when we spotted Alexandra of I’m A Little looking fall-ready in a colourblocked design. With temperatures dropping and our wardrobes having almost fully transitioned, we’re thinking it’s about time we reembraced the cape too.

From Topshop‘s cozy geo print version at a cheap and cheerful £32 to Band of Outsiders‘ ultra-chic tuxedo-inspired design at USD$1,195, we’ve got 20 must-have capes on our wish list. Are they on yours too?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – September 26, 2014 Edition

Gracie Carroll of Gracie Carroll, Toronto

Nothing signals the arrival of fall more than the return of plaid to the wardrobe rotations of bloggers across the country. From an uber-cool tartan suit on Lyndsey in Edmonton to the requisite chic boyfriend blazer on Krystin in Toronto, plaid is back and bigger than ever.

Will you be rocking the trend this fall?

The Alexander Wang x H&M Campaign Unveiled

Alexander Wang x H&M launches in exactly 42 days (damn right we’re counting) on November 6, and while that may seem really, really far away still, we’ve got something to keep you going while you wait: the official ad campaign.

Except that the images beg more questions rather than answer the ones we already had about the collaboration. We went from wondering if there’ll be handbags and shoes (because that’s obviously what Wang does best) to asking ourselves whether one must play an actual sport to wear Wang x H&M. Because the football, hockey stick and boxing gloves are intimidating us, just a little.

Nevertheless, our interest is piqued. We patiently await the complete lookbook, H&M.

Sonya Esman of Class Is Internal, Toronto

From ruffles to pastels, this week it was all about the pretty dresses on the Canadian style blogs.

Our favourite bloggers all got the same memo: Sonya in an off-the-shoulder number, Ania in a frilly pink frock, Kimberly in a to-die-for LRD, and even Vanessa in a lovely, lilac dress. Did you?

Admiring from the Backseat: Toronto International Film Festival 2014 Edition

Kate Bosworth in BOSS 

TIFF 2014 has come and gone, but before we roll those red carpets back up and store them away for the year, we should obviously take a moment to bow down to the sartorial highlights of the past 11 days. From a red hot Kate Bosworth in BOSS to the ever glamourous Julianne Moore in Giambattista Valli, Hollywood’s leading ladies definitely brought their finest film premiere duds to Toronto.

Let’s compare red carpet notes – are we on the same page regarding TIFF 2014′s best dressed?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – September 12, 2014 Edition

Alyssa Lau of Ordinary People, Edmonton

With NYFW in full swing this past week, the sartorial diaries of Canadian style bloggers who’d made the trek to the Big Apple provided plenty of Lookbook fodder.

From an all-white ensemble on Alyssa (snapped by The Sartorialist himself, no less) to a matchy-matchy green getup on Lisa to high shine co-ordinated looks on the Beckerman twins, Canadian style was well represented on the fashion week street style scene. Wouldn’t you say?

Admiring from the Backseat: Venice Film Festival 2014 Edition

Emma Stone in Valentino Fall 2014 Couture

While TIFF is officially in full swing here in Toronto, over in Italy the Venice Film Festival wrapped up over the weekend. It seemed quieter than usual on the red carpets over the course of the 11-day festival, but there were still some definite sartorial highlights.

Emma Stone was red carpet perfection on opening night in a green tulle gown from Valentino’s latest couture collection, hands down our favourite look of the festival. Ashley Greene in gorgeous black Antonio Berardi gown, Constance Jablonski in a lovely floral-embroidered Alberta Ferretti number rounded out our top 3 best dressed.

Will the TIFF red carpet be able to top Venice? We’ll dutifully report back next week!
