My Favourite Trends of Spring 2010

While some of the up coming Spring trends are better off left to the mannequins on the runway, there are a few that we can translate to our everyday lives.

It’s Not You, It’s Your Clothes

talktoyourself

Before working with a client I go through a series of questions about their current and ideal style. It is a great way to get clients to start thinking about themselves.  One of the questions that I ask during my initial consultation is what part of your body you would like to camouflage.  Even if they had trouble with every other question, this is one that most women can answer right away. Why is it that as women we are so quick to judge ourselves?

After having my daughter Kaelyn a few months ago I have become acutely aware of my body. I spent nine months vowing that I was going to “bounce back” from my pregnancy. Instead what I have discovered is that my body “moved forward” afterward. My body is different now, not better, not worse, just different. In the process, I was also lucky enough to gain a new appreciation for what our incredible bodies are capable of.

As women, we go through so many different stages in our life that cause our body’s mold to change. From puberty, to menopause and all the many many stages in between, we live inside so many different shapes. I just wish we were more accepting of those changes. As if it wasn’t bad enough that our culture teaches us to put down our own bodies, it also teaches us to scrutinize other women’s.

We spend too much of our lives fighting with our body and not nearly enough time thanking it. So, here is the challenge; the next time you go to complain about your “flabby” arms, thank them instead; thank them for allowing you to hug your kids, or parents or friends.  Say it out loud and like you mean it.

The next time you look at those “skinny” jeans that you haven’t fit into in years, thank them for the memories and tell them it is time that you move on. It’s not you, it’s them. Wearing clothes that fit your body and that you feel great in makes you feel great.

The moral of the story is – stop wasting time hating on your body and start spending time admiring it. (Also, don’t invest in fad diets, invest in good jeans and an even better bra).

Your Style Queen,

S.C.

Rebuilding a Wardrobe and Updating my Services

I have recently discovered that there is nothing like being pregnant to make you want to start fresh with your wardrobe.

I am very close to having a bonfire with just about every piece in my tiny closet. So, in staying true to the advice that I give clients on a daily basis. I have decided to purge everything in my wardrobe that doesn’t make me feel amazing. This has led to two things; a very happy sister and a lot of self reflection on every step of my sessions with clients. I have become my hardest client. In doing this I have decided to change a few things about how I work.

1) Every client will

be required to keep a clothing diary for a week.

I used to enforce this; however I found I stopped asking clients for them when they stopped sending them.

2) All clients must have a file, image board or Pinterest board of inspirational ideas

This is not for me as much as it is for them. While most of my clients already do this I would like to see them keep adding to their files after our session is over

3) I will be updating my style profile summaries with more images and links to sites

I am so visual and I want my summaries to reflect that.

If you have any other recommendations please feel free to email me at suzanne@yourshopgirl,com. I would love to hear them!

 

So now for my wardrobe update. Where to start? Well, I am starting with picking up basics during the holiday sales. I am not one to rush into a purchase, so I will choose them wisely and make sure every piece is one that I would be happy to wear on a daily basis.

Based on inspiration from my Pinterest Board, here is my to-do list:

  • t-shirt x 2

I love James Perse, so I will concentrate on finding sales on a cream and dark grey tee from him

  • blouse x 2

One with a pattern and one without. I like Massimo, Zara or Equipment

  • jeans

I have a few pairs that are still good, so I will look for a medium wash in any of my favourite brands (Paige, Rag and Bone, Rich and Skinny)

  • black skinny pants

These are necessary and may require patience to get an amazing pair on sale. I’ll scope out Theory, Club Monaco and Paige

  • blazer

Smythe is always a favourite with Rag and Bone coming in a close second.

  • cardigan

I just need a few basics, so I will most likely head to J Crew and Loft for these ones

Don’t get me wrong I love Toronto: the food, the people, the little cultural pockets all over the city and although we are catching up in the fashion world we are still lacking in one major category- Above Average clothing stores. Not only are we lacking, but what little representation we do have is an embarrassment. The big box stores simply churn out synthetic fabrics in dated styles. Where are all the decent clothes? Answer? the Internet . Focusing on dresses (a girls second best friend), I have scoured through a pretty decent list of extended sizes and speciality above avergae stores to bring you the top five online stores. Plus, they all help out us Canucks by shipping to Canada.

1. Lane Bryant- By far the most professional looking website. The jean finder is priceless and they have a decent selection of items in all categories. And at buy one get one half off, no matter what your number your tag says, do not miss out on their great accessories. The black dress featured is just one of their many classic pieces(check out their trenches!)

http://www.lanebryant.com/

2. Lola and Gigi-The second website is the only Canadian representation on the list. What this website lacks in other areas it makes up for in dresses. This navy Tadashi is an incredible alternative to the little black dress. Petites may have

to alter the lengths, but this still remains a great place to search for that much needed spring dress.

3. Kiyonna- While the selection isn’t huge the inventory is really well selected. Work wear is classic and even the lounge wear has great slimming details. Don’t forget the dresses! This wrap dress, is as easy to throw on a as a pair of sweats, but looks a million times more chic.

http://www.kiyonna.com/


4. Alloy- While the models are not even average, nevermind above average, I can’t help but be drawn to their amazing selection of clothes. The sizes are extended, so they are not going to cater to all above average; however, it is a step in the right direction; trendy clothes for everyone!

http://www.alloy.com/


5. Igigi- That’s fun to say. If you are in the market for a formal dress, look no further, Igigi has some really great options. Even their casual dresses stand out. This colour block dress creates the illusion of a teeny tiny waist. Who doesn’t love that?

http://www.igigi.com/

Even if they don’t fit you can always send them back; remember, it is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all
