A Brand New Look!!



I am so excited to finally introduce the new website for Styleiish!  I've been working on it for months now, and I have learned A LOT about creating websites and how they work behind the scenes, and now I'm super excited about the finished project.  There'll be some tweeks needed I'm sure, but its finally at a place where I'm ready to launch!
As we began this year, I thought long and hard about where I wanted Styleiish to go.  And as much as I love blogging and making my "styleiish" thoughts heard, I felt like I wasn't reaching my ultimate goal, which was helping women feel confident in themselves.  Personal styling/shopping has always been looked at as a "luxury", but that's just not the case anymore.  Through Styleiish, I want to help women find their confidence in clothing, and do it affordably!
I know I can help that new mom find clothes that will make her feel super confident, whether she's going back to work, or just going out for a much needed Ladies Night!  Or that women who just wants some help organizing and putting together all the fabulous items she already has!
Whoever you are, and whatever your needs may be, we have a service that's right for you.  Head over to the brand new site, at www.styleiish.com and check out the services to see what's right for you.
As always, thank you SO much for supporting Styleiish, and here's to the start of a new chapter!!

Time for a Change!



Blogging and providing style inspo over the last 7 months has been a LOT of fun!   And I have learned tons about the “Style blog” world.  But I've taken a little break lately to concentrate on other things.  
I’ve had some exciting new things happening personally, but I also wanted to change direction with Styleiish and really take it to where I want it to go.  As I work on a new website, and work towards my new goals, I’ll be taking a break from blogging.  I will definitely miss it, but I’m excited for what lies ahead.

Thank you SO much for reading and checking in with Styleiish, and stay tuned for what’s coming!

Adding Some Edge!!

This Joe Fresh dress was under $15!!

I love this dress from Joe Fresh, with its ruching at the waist and long sleeves, it is simplicity at its best!  It's great worn alone (although probably not a good idea if you're headed out for a big meal!  Ha!). 
But it's also a great piece for layering.  Keep it casual by throwing on a long cardigan or vest, or even a denim jacket.  Or add some edge like I did with a little faux leather, and ankle boots.  Nothing like a little faux leather (or real leather obviously!) too add some edginess to an outfit. 
I gotta be honest, this dress is quite fitted, and to me, that narrows it's wear-ability to nights out (which don't happen all that often!).  But by layering it in various ways, the wear-ability definitely increases.

Another Exciting Collab!!


'Who What Wear' x Target Collection
I LOVE this vest!!!!!  And the skirts!!  And the moto jacket... I want it all!!
I wrote a post a while back about collaborations between retailers and designers, and how amazing they can be.  There’s an exciting new one I wanted to tell you all about.  It’s coming January 31st, and it’s between Target and Who What Wear (an awesome style blog).

Usually with collaborations, the price point can vary, but the idea is to keep the prices affordable.  What’s so exciting about this collab is that everything is under $50!!  And by looking at this pic, I can tell there’s going to be some really great pieces!

Another cool thing is that this collab isn’t just a one time thing.  It’ll be ongoing with new pieces being introduced monthly!  I know I’ll be checking out this new collection, hope you do too!

Black and White and Cute all Over!



People ask me all the time, where would you go to buy a dress?  And my answer is always, start with H&M!  I have very rarely (if ever!) been disappointed with H&M.  And the price is always right.  This cute little dress for instance… just guess how much I got it for?!  Only $14!!  I know, right!!  It was on sale, and they had an extra 30% off, which H&M doesn’t do often, so I’m glad I was able to get in on the deal, and get my size.
If you're wanting to do some shopping, now is a great time to score some great deals!  There's a lot of "junk" in the stores during this post Christmas clearance, but if you don't mind spending some time to look through the sale racks, you could get yourself some great deals.
Happy Shopping!!

I LOVE THIS!!


Love that you can wear this with anything, dress it up or keep it casual!


I got a little spoiled over the holidays, what with Christmas, and my birthday tucked in there as well… and I love all the thoughtful gifts I received (and the ones I got for myself!).  But my fave has to be this sweater/coat from Zara!!!  What is there not to love about this?!  Let me break down the awesome-ness:
The fabric is perfect, warm enough to be a coat, yet soft enough to be a sweater.  This versatility makes it super wearable. 
The waterfall lapel is perfect, love the way it looks, and is so on trend!  It’s a nice alternative to the classic straight cut.
The faux leather sleeves add the perfect amount of edge.  I love when my outfits look a little edgy, so this is right up my alley. 
And lastly, the fit is great.  It’s just drapey enough to create a cool, effortless look.  But if you’re looking for a more structured look, a belt is all you need.  (I picked one up on sale at Reitmans for only $5!!)  Adding a belt elevates the look, and I’ll most definitely  be giving it a try very soon.
You can always count on Zara for some great basic pieces, and this one does not disappoint!

Winter Trends!


Obsessed with this Old Navy coat!!


Winter is not my favorite season.  I don’t mind cooler weather, but I like it when it’s just cold enough for boots and sweaters, like Fall or early Spring… winter is just not fun for fashion.  It’s no wonder that the name of the fashion game these days is comfort and warmth!!
But if you’re willing to brave the cold, and wear something other than a big comfy sweater, there are some winter trends worth trying:

  • Winter white is so big right now!  White tops or white jeans, or even wearing white on white is so on trend.  I really like the idea of it, although I haven’t given it a try yet.  A cream sweater and white jean combo looks awesome for winter!
  • Pastels are in for winter too.  I find this a little confusing because I’ve always associated the light hues of pastel colours with Spring time.  Not sure if I can jump on this trend… my brain just can’t register it!
  • I’ve seen a lot of off-the-shoulder or shoulder baring looks as well.  This I love!  I think showing a little shoulder is a cute look, and I’m always down for it, whether its trendy or not!
  • Some of the Fall trends are still hanging around as well.  We’re still seeing a lot of suede and fringe, and plaid is still here too!
While we patiently wait for winter to pass, make the most of it:  Wear your scarves in different ways.  Try out some winter white looks.  Definitely stay cozy.  And remember, Spring is only a little over 2 months away!!
