SO many beautiful, colorful new items in the shop this week. I’ll let them speak for themselves. ♥

One of my favourite things about summer is the chance to wear bold, colorful prints after a long winter’s jean & sweater binge. I forget during the winter months that prints are such a pick-me-up. Like getting a dose of much-needed vitamin D, putting on a pretty print dress releases Serotonin. It’s a fact.
Here are a few pieces that I’m in love with right now from the shop, which could gracefully transition from summer to fall, and even into the bleak, colour-starved winter.
Metallics never go out of style. Gold – worn to accessorize an outfit, or as the main event itself – always resonates with style and distinction. The Egyptians knew it, the Greeks knew it, and we all know those 60s swingers knew it. Certainly gold is eye-catching, but something about its shimmering, light-diffusing nature adds an air of luxe subtlety to an outfit (if worn in the right proportions and styles, of course). Gold can be used to make a statement, or works equally well as a supporting player in an otherwise toned-down look. The possibilities are endless, so go for the gold! (Too much? I just like cheesy puns, OK?)
See all these gold treasures now in the shop.
Once the staple of every 1950s and 1960s sci-fi costume designer’s studio, Lurex is making a comeback hard, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s easy to wear, and adds instant textural interest to any outfit. I love wearing oversized lurex tops or knits with incorporated lurex.
This versatile fabric comes in both thick and sheer weaves, making it suitable for many types of garments.
Your best bet is to go with a classic shape to balance the novelty of this shiny fabric. Try a simple sheath, or structured shift. Remember, a little bit of sparkle goes a long way.
If you’re looking to stand out from the little black crowd, choose Lurex!
As the temperatures drop and snowflakes start to fall, bundle up baby in one of these cuties!
