The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 17, 2014 Edition


Alanna Durkovich of Xander Vintage, Vancouver

This week’s Lookbook is all about fashion firsts.

Lisa was the first to rock a look from the highly anticipated Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration (#NBD), Sasha was the first to sport a piece from the 424 Fifth Fall collection we’ve been obsessing about for months, and Nelia was the first to ever make us consider going grey on purpose as she debuted her new platinum ‘do.

We may be hanging out in the backseat, but our favourite Canadian style bloggers sure aren’t – they’re right at the forefront of the scene.

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.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – July 4, 2014 Edition


Sonya Esman of Class Is Internal, Toronto

This week, we’re all obsessed with head-to-toe white looks, thanks to Sonya here in Toronto and Claire over in Vancouver.

Sonya sported a lovely crochet lace frock that had us instantly clicking to snag our very own, while Claire’s effortlessly chic white separates and matching shoes had a similar effect on us (i.e. wear to buy a pair of white sandals, stat?).

Are you rocking the summer whites too, or are you weary of spilling your ice cream on your bright white duds?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – May 9, 2014 Edition


Ania Boniecka of Ania.B, Calgary

Just when we were ready to declare that spring has really, truly, finally arrived and it’s safe to store the boots and parkas away, Ania in Calgary posts personal style snaps with falling snow as her backdrop. Definitely makes for some stunning photos.

Truthfully, though, we prefer to admire the snow from afar. And from the looks of the sunshine-filled shots from Nelia in Toronto, Mo in Halifax, and Laura in Ottawa this week, so do they. Enjoy the spring weather this weekend!

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 25, 2014 Edition


Jenny Jovanovic of Crazy Style Love, Toronto

This week, Canadian style bloggers from coast to coast made one thing clear: pants are for suckers. Cute skirts, chic dresses and bare legs are the formula for spring dressing – they’re all abiding by it and looking downright fresh too.

From Jenny‘s girly fuchsia birdcage skirt and polka dot top pairing to Alanna‘s whimsical bird print frock getup, we’re feeling inspired to finally put those black tights in storage and show some leg. Now if only the gams weren’t so grey from a long winter away from the sun…

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 18, 2014 Edition


Jill Lansky of The August Diaries, Vancouver

Spring has sprung in our favourite Canadian style bloggers’ wardrobes. Flowers have begun blooming (in some parts of the country), and likewise greenery is making appearances in bloggers’ sartorial odes to the arrival of spring.

This week, Ania paired a foliage print collared shirt with white trousers for a cool, mensy vibe, Marie sported rose print cropped pants in the perfect transitional look, and Ivy donned a cute palm tree print sweatshirt for a visit to see the cherry blossoms that have already bloomed in Vancouver.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 4, 2014 Edition


Kassandra Camponi of Kastles, Edmonton

If you get a feeling of déjà vu with this week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook, you’re bang on. A few standout pieces that have made appearances recently are featured again, styled in a fresh new way.

Case #1: Joe Fresh‘s trompe l’oeil shirt. We first spotted it on Barbara, who knocked it out of the park with a head-to-toe black and white ensemble. This week, Lookbook newcomer Vickie paired the same shirt with a bright red perforated leather jacket for the perfect pop of colour. One shirt, worn two fantastic ways.

Case #2: Ann Taylor‘s TDF cage pencil skirt. It first showed up in the Lookbook on Christina, who got us lusting after the skirt when she expertly paired it with a black moto jacket and baby pink pumps. This week, Nelia made us want it even more with an equally fierce black, white and red getup, one of our favourite colour combos ever. Again, one skirt, worn two uber-cool ways.

Déjà vu? Why not when it looks this good.
