Lookbook: Isabel Marant for H&M


Of course, the day after I post a sneak peak at the Isabel Marant for H&M collection, the full lookbook is released, and it looks amazing! It definitely has that Marant signature bohemian rock n roll cool vibe. I am loving the leather trousers, embellished jackets, printed pants, in fact, I pretty much love everything!

Vogue sums up the lookbook:

"In the accompanying lookbook, Alek Wek, Lou Doillon, Milla Jovovich and Constance Jablonski model pieces that echo Marant's Parisian bohemian aesthetic perfectly. An embellished trophy jacket is worn with leather cropped trousers; a loose peasant top with printed jeans; and mannish outerwear with white trousers and slouchy boots with fringed detailing.  Start making your wishlist now, before the collection lands in stores on November 14. "

Prices and full lookbook can be found here, November 14th cannot come quick enough!

Sneak Peak: Isabel Marant for H&M

The Emmys on Sunday may have been a total fashion snooze fest in my humble opinion, so let's move on to more exciting things. Finally, pictures are starting to drop of the new Isabel Marant for H&M collaboration, and it's looking fantastic! The collection is due to hit stores November 15th (and online where available), and I cannot wait. I love the embellished jacket & heels, and the flirty wrap dress. According to online, the collection will also include tees, sweats, embroidered dresses (inspired by her fall 2012 runway), and “shaggy sweaters” made of loops of wool yarn that come both oversize and cropped. Shouldn't be long before the full lookbook is released, bring it on!

Style Crush: Olivia Wilde at TIFF 2013


Another Toronto International Film Festival has come and gone, and with it the celebs and glitz & glamor, but I'm still recovering from the fashion frenzy happening in my backyard! I was going to do a general best dressed of TIFF round-up, but then I started to realize that Miss Olivia Wilde here was going to take up most of the list anyway haha. Olivia made the party rounds and hit a few red carpets, and managed to look incredible each & every time. It's hard to pick a favorite look of the bunch, but I think  I love the yellow Valentino gown best, mostly because it sticks out from all the blue.  Which look is your favorite?

Also, just a reminder that today is your LAST DAY to enter our GreenEyeRocks pendent giveaway, win a stunning one of a kind necklace, details here

Peter Pilotto for Target Announced!!


Huge news frugalistas!! The day after the amazing 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection dropped, Target has announced their new designer collaboration with the incredible Peter Pilotto! Oh snap! I cannot WAIT to see this, Target is really killing it lately with these collaboration lines. In addition, Target is partnering with Net-A-Porter to launch the collection with international shipping, so us Canadians who cannot necessarily reach a Target store, are not out of luck.

The line will reportedly include apparel, swimwear and accessories featuring “complex prints in a signature palette of blues, greens, warm reds and oranges.” The best part: Most items will clock in under $60, with nearly 70 items ranging in price from $14.99 to $79.99 for apparel and swimwear and $16.99 to $39.99 for accessories. Amazing!!

Peter Pilotto is known for their bright colours, intricate patterns, and interesting cut-outs, and is adored by celebrities and the fashion elite. This teaser trailer gives the slightest hints at what we can expect, mainly a look at what patterns we'll see. I've barely recovered from Phillip Lim, but this collection drops February 9, so we have some time for wallet replenishment until then.  So excited for more images of what's to come!
