Yay Or Nay? Marsala – Pantone Colour of 2015

Hi Guys! Its time to say goodbye to Radiant Orchid because Pantone has just named Marsala the colour of the year for 2015.Marsala collage 4

In a company press release, Pantone describes this colour as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and soul, exuding confidence and stability.” Confidence and stability aren’t what come to mind when I look at this colour…If I’m being honest, it reminds me of dried blood and rust, sorry but it does. Lol! But to be fair, the colour isn’t that bad. I would describe Marsala as an earthy reddish brown with a hint of mauve. It’s a warm colour that will flatter most skin tones and it pairs well with neutral colours like black and navy. Take a look:

I’m surprised this is the colour of the year, I mean I wasn’t crazy about Radiant Orchid but at least it was bright and cheery. Marsala is dull and flat so for me this is somewhere between yay and nay. Now I can’t see myself wearing a ton of this colour but as a blush or lipstick, it’s doable. What about you? Yay or Nay?

Black Friday That Fits You!!!

Ready or not, Black Friday is four days away! And its time to prepare for this shopping insanity 😄 In previous years, I like many other fabulous Winnipeggers have gone across the border to indulge in some serious retail therapy. But in the last few years, Winnipeg has started to embrace Black Friday which makes this fashionista excited to support my city!
So where do I plan on doing my shopping? Polo Park Shopping Centre! Why? Because they’ve got us covered with their Black Friday That Fits You event. Including a chance to win a $1000 shopping spree!! I bet that got your attention??!!

From now until Wednesday (November 26th), shoppers will have the chance to win a $1000 shopping spree with a stylist on Black Friday. You can either enter here or head over to Polo Park Centre Court at the stylist activation booth or download the new CF SHOP app.
By the way – this app is pretty cool, it lets you access the store directory, create a shopping list, check out upcoming events, store promotions and even check your SHOP! CARD gift card balance! However my favourite thing about this app is that it lets you check out current trends and even shop for them. And right now until Thursday (November 27th), you can drop by Centre Court and sign up for a free 15min style consultation with a professional stylist.

Outfit Of The Day: #CoatedDenim & Over The Knee Boots

otk boots & coated denim 3Don’t let this nice weather fool you, shortly after I took these pictures it snowed 🙈 Sigh, it was bound to happen. Anyhow, moving to more fun things! Can we talk about coated denim (also know as “waxed denim”)? In my eyes, they are the next best thing to leather pants. Why? They look like leather but fit like a pair of comfy denim. And they don’t come with the hefty price tag 😉otk boots & coated denim 2otk boots & coated denim 9

Some of my favourite things about coated denim are that they can be easily dressed up or down. The subtle sheen not only highlights your curves but also adds that little something special to elevate your jeans. And not too mention that they’re versatile and edgy. Now in terms of fit, the wax coating makes these jeans not as stretchy as most denim but they keep their shape well. So buy a pair that fit you well and don’t size up or down.otk boots & coated denim 10otk boots & coated denim 13otk boots & coated denim 11

Some tips for cleaning:

Dry Cleaning: If the tag states ‘Dry Clean Only,’ proceed with caution as heat is the enemy when it comes to coated denim. Ask for environmentally friendly dry cleaning because this process does not use high heat. I would ask the cleaner if they have experience with items like this…nothing worse than paying $$$ only to have them ruined 😣

Hand Washing: wash them inside out to protect the coating. But just like any other denim, you may still get some breakdown and aging…I like to use a mild natural soap, as it tends to be more gentle on all fabrics.

Freezer Trick: I know a lot of people that swear by this method, especially when it comes to raw denim lovers. Anyhow, freezing your denim keeps bacteria (odour) at bay without any shrinkage or fading. I don’t have enough room in my freezer but since I live in a cold weather city, I simply put them in a plastic bag and stick them outside in the backyard…24 hours later, they’re ready! Simple & easy.
