    High Street...Naomi Watts

    I'm really loving the grey shoulder bag for the winter season, as it contrasts with the white, red, and green ensembles you'll probably be wearing at some point. It's a fresher take on the regular brown or black bag bag, and it makes a subtle fashion statement to get you in the holiday trend mood. I love Naomi Watt's favourite bag, the Mulberry "Mabel" bag, because it's the perfect shape for everyday and exactly what we're looking for to carry small holiday gifts. Here are some look-a-likes we've found at a much more affordable price:

    1.) Mossimo Satchel (in Grey) - $23; 
    2.) Marc B Strap Oversized Shopper (in Grey) - $67.50;
    3.) ASOS Leather Studded Fold Over Shoulder Bag (in Grey) - $60;

    Item of the Week

    A new recurring post! In Item of the Week, I pick the best find of the week, wether it's a splurge item, classy basic, or anything in-between. Our very first pick? This adorable purse, which has a vintage and western feel to it, and would go great with a casual pairing of jeans and a tucked-in white tee. The best part? It's under $30.

    Nica Soft Flap Over Purse (in Tan) - $21;

    Natalia proves to us that a complicated, brightly coloured dress such as this one can look stunningly effortless, and that you don't need to clutter it up with unnecessary accessories and make-up.

    Runway-to-Freeway...Stella McCartney Fall 2008 RTW

    I loved the entire Stella McCartney Fall 2008 RTW runway show last season, but a few looks really stood out as chic, wearable, modern outfits that I immediately began to covet. But with a less-than-Stella budget, I'm limited to what I can find in my local mall or clothing store. So while it's not exactly like the runway outfit, I used the same colour palate, similar silhouette, and tried to get the accessories as close as possible to the actual runway ensemble; which are the guidelines for putting together a fashion-inspired, but not carbon-copied look. Here's what I managed to put together: 

    1.) They're a dead ringer for the actual Stella shoes, but at a fraction of the price!
    2.) Cotton Spandex Jersey Legging (in Heather Gray) - $26;
    3.) Covet Bamboo Jersey Dress (in Navy) - $78;
    4.) Caperton Jacket (in Brown) - $90;
    5.) Mini Turnlock Purse (in Sienna) - $42;
