Real World Runway: Polka-Dot Dancing

I didn’t notice until I did a major overhaul of my wardrobe (i.e. giveaway & donate a portion of my wardrobe and organize the rest of it) – how obsessed I was with Joe Fresh clothing. I found a bag, some shirts, pants, shoes…I love Joe Fresh. (I love Joe Fresh so much … that I just remembered I did a post and featured a pair of pants that I had bought from the brand as well!) Not only is the line affordable (which everyone knows by now), but the clothes are chic and cool. It’s not hard for me to justify buying clothing from the brand, because for me the fit is right & so is the price. So today I found myself visiting one of the Joe Fresh Studio locations and I happened to pick up this lovely dress for only …(drumroll please…..) $22. And that was with tax!

Tribal Dancing

Yesterday, I actually had a chance to walk through Yorkdale, without feeling rushed, or like I was short on time. I went into Artizia and saw this coat that had the most interesting print on it. When I was back home in Vancouver, my mother infused this love of Native Art in me (it’s her newest obsession), and…it stuck. I was also looking on – the style section, naturally – and came across celebs that were wearing this very same print. It’s called Navajo Prints. Love the look. It’s comfy and not overstated. It’s one of those things that really speaks true to the phrase – fashion is art. The Missoni Spring 2011 collection kind of has that native look about it. Lots and lots of really bright, vibrant, ethnic prints. Makes me want to infuse more colour into my wardrobe.
