Archives for category: Fashion for less

Fashion news just seems to be getting more and more exciting. With rumors of Karl Lagerfields sucessor, and his new party dresses at Macy’s; the leek of some Valentino looks at the gap are giving me fashion goosebumps. The Russian, militaria and romantic gestures gets me excited about the ruffles look from Valentino at the gap.  Whats next Proenza for Zellers? I wish.

As the economic market has slumped desingner luxury goods down 14% from last year, which is a 2 million dollar decrease or lost revenue. The idea of bargain and shopportunisitc companies like TJ MAXX, Winners, Macy’s, even Zeller’s are blundering in the mess of slower pace sales of fashion. The trend of designer labels becoming more affordable is a much welcomed revloution.


Why spend more when you can spend less and still look fine. Adapting the looks from desingers for less is a passion that I am using in my look all the time; constantly looking and wanting luxury and seeing what else is out there; it’s a little too deep. Ardenes Canadian retailer has many fashionable items that can also play a key role in winter months. Although quality is not cashmere, I give it shelf value for a year. A nice 5 -50 bucks spent at Ardene’s.

Pair these rib leggings with your favourite knit sweater or dress. A definite luxurious option to thin nylon leggings people get from Stitches or Suzy Shier.

Jersey Knit, I know the super light weight isn’t the best quality. But it’s cute and comfortable with the thick cable knit leggings and boots.  This is a layered look; However, I am still looking out for the perfect bomber jacket to make it complete. Long sweater or layers under, or possibly a denim jacket could work.

Don’t leave home without a scarf. Such romantic and feminine touches to this purple scarf is sweet. Love to own different scarfs; even going for animal prints would look fresh.

Joe Fresh is one of my favourite lines. Not only because it is very affordable, but because it is a great Canadian design avaiable at the Canadian Superstore. The looks are amazing, the price tag makes it even more desirable. It’s like Dsquared for the supermarket; genius. I love the layers, and the the warm functional appeal to the Fall 2010 looks. There are some serious coats, and skirts to watch out for next time at the Superstore.
