Blogger Spotlight

I know I’m not the only girl whose Pinterest, Bloglovin and Instagram feeds are filled with images/posts from bloggers, these are the best places to get outfit or styling inspiration. I follow a handful of local bloggers – To Vogue Or Bust, Alicia Fashionista, Bleed For Fashion, The Starving Stylist and Discovering Elegance – the list could go on! (I actually went to Blanche Macdonald in Vancouver with Peter of The Starving Stylist and I remember when he was starting up his blog; keep up the great work love!) Then of course there are those bloggers that everyone knows, who mainly reside in the US, like Man Repeller, Devon Rachel, Cupcakes and Cashmere, Eat Sleep Wear and The Blonde Salad.

One of my absolute favourites though is Julia Engel of the fabulous blog Gal Meets Glam! This beauty is from San Fransisco,  California and has impeccable style. Her outfits are flawlessly styled, capture that classic look and she always looks amazing. Print mixing isn’t for everyone but this girl can pull it off! She also got married a little over a year ago and I definitely have looked to pictures from her wedding as inspiration for mine as well. Also she’s very good at making a ponytail look good (or any updo for that matter) which is something I’ve yet to accomplish. I’ve gathered some of my favourite outfit posts from her blog (there are far too many to choose from!) to share with you. Now it’s time for me to do some outfit planning myself for the work week ahead.

Happy Sunday!

Peter Pilotto x Target

It was only a matter of months ago that the designer collaboration Phillip Lim x Target hit stores, and here we are again with another one just a few weeks away – Peter Pilotto.

The London based design house consists of the duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. Their collection for Target is full of colourful prints and includes dresses as well as separates. It’s fun, bright, energetic and the pieces are great for mixing and matching. It launches online (for the US) and in stores for both Canada and the US on Sunday February 9th. One of my favourite things about having Target in Canada now is that we get access to these designer collabs without having to go across the border.

Back in September I went to my nearest Target to line up for the Phillip Lim collaboration. I got there 10 minutes before the store opened thinking that nobody, if anyone, would already be lined up. I ended up being the 7th girl in line – a few of them even had shopping carts. When the doors opened, the girls at the front of the line were taking their sweet time heading into the store and I was adamant on getting at least one purse, so I RAN past a few girls straight to the bag display and snatched two immediately. And then went straight for the BOOM! sweatshirt for my sister-in-law. After trying on a few of the pieces for fun, I decided to buy for myself the navy blue sleeveless top with the ruffled front. I had also decided that I only needed one of the two purses I grabbed (the large satchel was too similar to a purse I already owned so I couldn’t justify buying it) but I couldn’t bear to put it back so I bought it and gave it to my sister-in-law as a birthday gift.

I’m hoping that there won’t be a big lineup, if any, when I go again this time. I have my heart set on one of the dresses and I will definitely run again to grab if it I need to. Here are a few of the look book images for the collection!
