With Manitoba currently facing a cold weather advisory (and for those of my Southern readers- that means temperatures dropping to -45 degree celsius) I felt it necessary to make a post dedicated to looking and feeling put together even in freezing temperatures. I swear I'm a cold blooded creature by nature, my winter natural habitat …

Winter Faux Furs

These past couple winters I have been particularly infatuated with the faux fur trend. I say faux, because I don't believe in killing animals for the vain pursuit of creating garments.

12 Days of Winter Trends. Day #9: Sequins

I couldn't not include the sequin trend with holiday parties quickly approaching- it's practically a New Year's Eve staple!

Similar to the trends of flounced and ruffled accents, bell sleeves have made a major appearance this F/W season. It adds the most elegant detail to an already classic look; upping the ensemble's simplicity.

12 Days of Winter Trends. Day #5: Waistcoats

Ah the very confusing winter trend of waistcoats. Not the most practical attire for Canadian winters; however, quite the statement piece when worn indoors. I feel as if waistcoats are more of a fall staple than a winter one; yet I still decided to include it in my 12 days of winter trends due to …
