Four Favourite Fashions

For great style, you don't need to buy an entirely new wardrobe each season. With a few key pieces, you can carry certain items from season to season, while still being current, even fashion forward.

(in no particular order)

From J. Crew.
Mister Freedom off-duty workshirt

US$239,95 item 20490

This is one for the books. We partnered with Mister Freedom, the master of old-school cool, for this original naval supply off-duty chambray shirt. Made from end-on-end 100 percent Japanese selvedge cotton with super-special details such as hand-painted metal buttons, a concealed passport pocket and reinforced elbow construction and side gussets. And in the traditional uniform style, the fit is extra snug, so order a size up if you're going for a more casual feel. Point collar. Import. Machine wash. A Collector's Item.

I'd pair this awesome shirt with super dark, inky denim and a great brown leather belt and thick, rustic flip flops for a cool summer night. Or, for a bolder statement, I'd wear it under the perfect lightweight khaki suit. I love when clothes have character, even when it's a manufactured charm. And this - I love.

From Martin + Osa
Vintage Slim Fit Jean

Style: 3430/1092

A slim that fits every body. This refined version has a more narrow leg and a slightly slimmer overall shape.

• Sits low on waist
• Narrow through hip + thigh
• 16" slim leg opening
• Button fly
• Five-pocket style

• 100% cotton, 13 oz.
• Dark rinse wash
• Logo button, rivets, embroidery, patch
• Machine wash

I love these jeans. Not too tight, not too loose. Soft, yet durable fabric wears perfectly from the first time you try them on. Paired with your favourite tshirt, this denim serves as the perfect canvas for any day.

D&G Dolce & Gabbana
Plisse-Skirt Silk Dress
from Neiman Marcus


Black/ivory. Bateau neckline; sleeveless. Ruffled detail at waist. Accordion-pleated skirt with plisse overlay. Pure silk tulle. Imported.

love, love, love this dress. I love the flirty, feminine shape, the elegant details, and the brilliant design. I love the peep toe shoe featured in the photograph, but I'd opt for a brighter shoe and bangle for the perfect pop of colour, like a coral, red, or aqua.

I'm loving all of the amazing white shirts for women at Anne Fontaine. Her designs, her draping, and her ability to glamourize a typically boring white garment are absolutely fabulous.
