GUESS Summer 2014 Collection Presentation

You know what they say – if you want something badly enough, visualize. Luckily for me I didn’t have to do much to visualize about summer and the promise of warm weather. Why? I attended the GUESS Summer 2014 Collection Presentation last week to preview what the brand will have in stores later this year. The collection had a cool, carefree and relaxed feel to it – which isn’t a far departure from the brand’s regular collections. It had me thinking of the beach and summer (of course). And while the collection’s focus was primarily with clothing, I couldn’t help but notice a bag that was hanging off one of the mannequins…. Tell me this isn’t cute (even if you do – I still want it!) GUESS will have you summer- ready in a few months as this collection will start to roll out starting May 2014. Hopefully this was enough to keep give you warm and happy thoughts for the rest of the day! Stay warm friends!

Looklet – S/S Trends 2011 – Colour Block

I love wearing colour!! Love it! So you can understand why this season’s Colour Blocking trend is one of my top favourites! For this look I didn’t hold back using colour! The Zara shoes have a touch of turquoise on the heel that matches the belt. And I used the monochromatic tights to break up the outfit a bit, and I think that it pulled the look together! And of course a little bling didn’t hurt anyone! The necklace is a great finishing piece that added a little “something-something” to the outfit!

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! Give or take a few cents of course. I found a picture, but the dress I bought was in black with white polka dots. …
