One Tribe Apparel is where style meets culture

One_Tribe_HammockIt’s not everyday you find clothes for everyday wear that are rooted with so much culture. However, the harem pants from One Tribe Apparel are so connected with the lifestyle of the Thai village that wearing them is like taking a trip to an island paradise.

The harem pants connects people from all walks of life. They are worn by dancers and yogis, fishermen, muay thai fighters, hikers, backpackers, the boho chic, those who embrace the alternative lifestyle, and everyone in between including girls like me who want something comfortable to wear on the weekend.

The styles as well as the beautiful colors and patterns fit the bohemian Thai culture well. But you don’t have to be lying on a hammock with island beats playing in the background, to enjoy these beautiful handmade pants. Even if you’re miles away, there are several reasons to grab yourself a pair of One Tribe Apparel harem pants.

1. Stylish: Just because your clothes feel comfortable doesn’t mean they aren’t stylish. The harem pants from One Tribe Apparel are beautiful. The rich colors, eye catching patterns, and versatile styles make these pants very fashion friendly.

2. Infused with culture: One of my favorite things about these pants is how they are so closely tied to the Thai culture. With more clothes being so far removed from culture and history, One Tribe Apparel has managed to infuse so many aspects of Thai culture in this fashion item. For one, they are hand stitched with local fabrics using the village technique. Secondly, they are sourced from the villages surrounding Chiang Mai, where they are made with love and care in the village home. It’s also nice to know that the creators and artists behind these boho pants are paid fairly.

The knowledge that these pants are both sustainable and connect people of a certain culture and lifestyle makes www.onetribeapparel.com a unique brand that I recommend checking out.

Closetonthego.com solves a common fashion problem

closetonthego

Did you ever wish there was a way to see how an outfit would look without trying on every dress in your closet, or maybe you’ve seen a cute pair of shoes online but you’re not sure if it will go with items you already own. Closetonthego.com is a website that solves these problems.

I’m sure most of us have had to deal with this scenario where you’re pulling out every item in closet just to see what looks good for that big event; by the time you’ve got your outfit together you’re exhausted from trying on everything you own and you’re room is probably a mess with clothes and shoes here and there. Save yourself the hassle and sign up for an account at closet on the go. It is possibly the most practical and fun fashion related app I’ve ever seen.

How it works:

Once you join the site, you can begin taking and uploading photos of items from your own closet to the site to put in your virtual closet. You then select items from “My Closet” and put together looks and styles, like I did in the photo above. It’s so easy and addicting!

More reasons to love this unique fashion site:

1. Keeps you organized. If you’re constantly buying the latest trends, you can easily forget what you already have. This app brings items that may be stuck way in the back of your real closet to the forefront. You can then decide if you may need to part with the item or show it off more often. It’s a great way to de-clutter and keep you organized.

2. Easier to find matching items. Maybe you have a great skirt, but nothing in your closet to pair with it. With closetonthego.com, you can pair their eshop items with items you already own right in your virtual closet. This helps you find more great pieces to add to your wardrobe or outfit.

3. Take it anywhere. No more wondering if you should buy that bag while on vacation, because you’re afraid you have something similar waiting for you at home. Closet on the go literally goes where you go. Simply log on and see if you already have similar items or what you’re closet may be missing.

Manos Gerakinis, the founder, is a genius for creating the site and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves fashion and style.

You can join the site and start putting together your own looks by visiting closetonthego.com

Find Lovely Jewelry Pieces at Love and Pieces

love&pieces

If you’re like me, you love to accessorize. Bold, elegant, classic or trendy pieces like the ones found at Love&Pieces.com are a must have for the accessory loving fashionista.

What is Love&Pieces?

It’s an online jewelry boutique with some of the most lovely curated items I’ve seen in a long while. On the site, you’ll find jewelry pieces that fit virtually every style. Whether you are bohemian, urban, or classic chic you’ll be able to find the right piece for your outfits.

The site hosts a number of different designers and I love this for two reasons:

1. It means more variety. Being able to browse through different collections and designers means I’m more likely to find that perfect accessory that suits my taste.

2. There is something for everyone’s budget. Love&Pieces has something for the person that wants to splurge and the girl that wants to add some affordable pieces to her collection.

Another thing I love about the site is the world wide free shipping!

The only thing I don’t like is that things sell out so fast! But I’m not surprised; the items are so lovely it’s expected that people don’t hesitate to buy. For that reason though, I recommend purchasing the items as soon as you can because the moment you turn your back, it’s sold out.

Greg Michaels is Always A Stylish Choice

Besides her shoes, a woman’s handbag is next thing you’ll notice about her outfit. In fact, you can wear a simple jeans and tee-shirt but with the right bag, you’ll look put together and stylish. That’s why I was so excited to be introduced to GregMichaels and had to share this brand with you. This designer brand is topping my list of must haves and brands to check out and here’s why.

Simple Elegance: If you like your hand bags to add to your look, not compete with it, then Greg Michaels is the brand for you. The bags come in a variety of styles and colors (which means there’s one for every occasion) but with each bag I noticed a simple classy elegance that just works. This simple elegance that seems to be crafted into each bag makes the bags functional and versatile. One bag can work for a cocktail party or Sunday brunch. I love versatility in pieces and it was one thing that really made this brand stand out for me.

Affordable: I was shocked to find a real leather hand bag company that was actually affordable. Most stylish leather bags can run past $500 but Greg Michaels has bags for under $200. What’s more, Greg Michaels products are made with prime materials. Their designers meticulously toil to produce world class goods which are sometimes considered art but always considered stylish.

Customer service: A great product is nothing if the website doesn’t make buying the product easy. Not only does Greg Michael offer free returns all year round, but you can always call one of the customer service agents if you have any questions. Sure, there are lots of hand bag companies out there, but they don’t all offer the service that great Greg Michaels’ does and that sets them apart from countless brands out there.

Great gift idea: Chances are there is at least one person in your life that is obsessed with hand bags. If you’re looking for that perfect gift for your fashion loving friend or relative, check out Greg Michaels. Their bags are beautiful, high quality, and a will get tons of compliments.

Grey Days in Autumn

Grey days in Autumn

ONLY short dress, 38 CAD / Boohoo skater dress, 27 CAD / Uniqlo dress, 72 CAD / Topshop sweater dress, 100 CAD / Pocket dress, 285 CAD

Our style gets darker as the days get shorter. Maybe we feel a little dreary, maybe we just like to mix in darker hues into our looks. But come autumn you see richer darker colors. I’ve always thought you can still wear bright tones even in the dead of winter but I can’t help gravitating towards grey when autumn approaches. It’s just such a versatile color.

A grey colored dress can be added to bright red heels to give you a pop of color. Grey lets you add colorful statement accessories without looking too overdone.

The Nora Dress from Toast shows us that grey doesn’t have to be boring and drab. I love the Rose print incorporated into the wool; perfect for fall.

Grey days don’t have to be any less stylish. There’s nothing wrong with a little less color.

To add to your grey skies day, here’s an autumn dark tune from the neighborhood

Style Must Have: skinny black trousers

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What does one wear in the South of France? That’s the challenging question I had to answer for myself while there. Before leaving on the trip I had decided myself on buying a pair of black pants. You must be thinking, “can’t you buy black pants in Canada?” Well, no. Not the one’s I was looking for. I call them “Paris pants,” as I had seen them on virtually every girl during Paris Fashion week a few years back, and convinced myself that they were still in fashion. Turns out my fashion radar was bang on because while in Nice, Monaco, and Lyon I saw them on plenty of stylish girls. I must have spent half my time in Monaco looking for a pair of these glorious must have trousers, but it was worth it when I finally found them in United Colors  of Benetton.

So what makes these pants a style necessity? They are classic. They can be seen on women as early as the 1950s and have stayed pretty close to the original style since then, making them a timeless garment, much like the pencil skirt. They look good on everyone. Not one girl looked bad in the classic black trouser. It may be why they were seen all over fashion week; girls with various body shapes, height and ages could confidently wear them knowing they looked chic. They can easily be dressed up or down. There is nothing better than a versatile garment. If you need to slip on something quick to run an errand these pants work, but they’re also perfect for days when you want to look super put together. Finally, it’s ok if these pants look a little short or cropped on; they’re not supposed to be long. This is perfect for those like myself who have long legs and sometimes have pants looking awkwardly short on us.

The french have it right when it comes to building a wardrobe with staple pieces. United Colors of Benetton had a good selection of “Paris Trousers” (not the real name, it’s what I call them. Don’t go in a store asking for them; no one will know what you mean :P). But you can probably find them else where as well.

Wishlist: Summer Bustier

kellytaylorbustier

Blame Kelly Taylor for this new fashion must have obsession of mine. Kelly Taylor was a character on the original series of Beverly Hills 90210. She’s portrayed as a stuck up spoiled brat with a lot of money to spend. Now, for the most part I never really found myself drawn to Kelly’s outfit choices. I preferred Donna Martin’s (the one with the hat). But in one episode, Kelly sports a white crop bustier top that I simply adored. I love bustiers in general and on my summer wishlist are lace and denim bustiers. Not only are bustiers or bra tops very popular this season but a lace bustier is a staple for a lady’s wardrobe. The outfit possibilities are endless. According to her friend Brenda (plaid shirt), Kelly had spent a fortune on her bustier and it seems times haven’t changed. Finding an affordable stylish bustier has been next to impossible. The offline shops in my area either don’t have them or they don’t even know what I’m talking to about; the online stores rarely have my size.

At first, I was only looking for a lace bustier. I wasn’t so keen on the floral or spadex ones they have donned on the mannequins this season. But I was lucky enough to find a beautiful lace skirt that would look perfect with a denim bustier and suddenly the hunt for a denim one was on. Then I found myself watching 90210 on a sick day and I couldn’t get Kelly’s top out of my head. “I Need One!” I said to myself, and before long I was madly hunting for something that would make me look like Kelly’s new bff.

bustiers

The white lace one featured is exactly what I’m looking for…$100 less. I was lucky enough to find a denim Kelly Taylor like bustier on Aliexpress, which I plan to feature once it arrives. Have you ever watched a show and dreamed about owning the outfits?

Where to get Phytoceramides in Canada

phytoceramidesA male model wisely advised me to take care of my skin in my twenties because it will be be my skin in my forties. I think there’s a misconception among young people that they don’t need to worry about their skin or concern themselves with things like anti-ageing or keeping their skin looking young. But the fact is, nobody’s skin stays “young” forever. When you’re twenty you may not consider what products you can invest in to help you maintain your youth or slow down your skin’s ageing process but nearly every woman I’ve met over 35 begins to look for ways to get back their skin’s youth and these days men are also joining in as they try to avoid the appearance of growing older. Now, I’m not saying there is anything wrong with ageing and no your skin does not have to look “forever 21” but healthy looking skin boosts your confidence. Also, taking care of your skin is a healthy habit to get into.

There are a lot of products on the market, but one of the most talked about and effective is phytoceramide. What is phytoceramide? Ceramides are things we naturally have in our skin, but lose as we age. The loss of ceramides causes you to lose that plumpness and youthfulness that you have in your skin when you’re younger. The idea of ceramide supplements is not new. They have been in topical solutions and have been used in parts of Asia for years. Now however, the FDA has approved phytoceramides in Canada. Phyto means it’s a plant derivitive. It’s made into a supplement that puts it back into your skin and helps to hydrate the skin from the inside out. Many Doctors, even Doctor Oz, highly recommend taking phytocermaides for your skin’s health.

You may be thinking, great where can I get?! Because those were my thoughts when I learned about the benefits of this little supplement. Phytoceramidescanada.ca/ not only carries the supplement they have created a better formula that helps your skin from both the inside and outside. They offer a Revitol Phytoceramides that is now toted as the best anti-aging cream. Revitol contains key ingredients that include Matrixyl and Hyaluronic acid, together they work at penetrating deep into the skin to make it firm it and give it a youthful glow. The phytoceramides and revitol duo that can be found at phytocermacidescanada.ca give you a facelift without the pain or cost of seeing a plastic surgeon. The website offers a 90 day money back guarantee and the product has rave review from customers.

The product offers dramatic results on deep wrinkles, so if you have been battling with wrinkle creams, or know someone that has this will finally resolve the problem. You can visit the website today to get more information and ask for a trial.

Find Qaulity Accessories at Wholesale Prices at JewelryBund

Untitled #246

What’s the fastest way to change your outfit without actually changing your outfit? Accessorize. When I was doing my little black dress challenge, I learned that adding some jewelry or a cute scarf could instantly deceive others into thinking I was wearing a different a dress. Accessories also help to make your wardrobe versatile. If there’s one thing chic women have in common, it’s their ability to accessorize. For a while, I didn’t add too many accessories to my wardrobe because I felt they were expensive. I’d see a girl with a lovely necklace tying her look together and feel I couldn’t afford something similar. That was until I found out about jewlerybund.com

Jewelrybund.com is an online wholesale accessory shop that has a plethora of options to help you accessorize your outfits. On the site you’ll find earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and even hair accessories all at affordable and wholesale prices.

I’m someone who loves wholesale supply sites. It not only lets you find great items for less, they ship right to your door. You can save 50-85 percent on quality jewelry by shopping with jewelrybund.com. They are even willing to price match. If you find a company offering a better deal than theirs you can simply email or live chat them and they will offer you a lower price. There are not a lot of wholesale accessory shops that are willing to do that.

Another thing I like about jewelrybund.com is they stand by their customer service and allow the customers to get in touch with a real person should they need to. After all, the most important aspect of business is customer service. It’s one thing to get a great deal on an item, but what happens when you need support. Suddenly, that great price doesn’t seem worth it if you’re left without answers to your questions.

The only thing I didn’t like about the site is that I was not able to find the shipping price prior to ordering. I like to have an idea of how much my entire order is going to cost me, but I overlooked this minor flaw because the prices were amazing. A girl can buy enough accessories to wear the same dress all month and have no one notice.

There is so much to choose from that one can get overwhelmed, but the site is very easy to navigate and well organized. One of the pieces I immediately gravitated towards was the waterdrope style necklace. I love statement necklaces, and at less than $3.00 how can any girl pass it up.

jewlerybund

I get crazy over rings, so it was no surprise to me that I overfilled my cart with several from the site. Jewelrybund.com has some of the loveliest and most unique rings I’ve seen.

If you are looking for an affordable quick way to spice up your outfits, I highly recommend visiting jewelrybund. They have an expansive collection of accessories at wholesale prices.

You can learn more about them by checking out the links below.
