The little white dress is just as versatile as the classic little black dress that, thanks to Coco Chanel, the fashion world has held so near and dear for many years. The LWD is a crisp, fresh and clean look which can easily be matched with your favourite colourful accessories. Its super trendy right now and its the perfect look for the summer and into the fall (just add tights and a cardigan).
Its fascinating to see how designers are putting their own creative spins on their version of the LWD. Plain, lace, crochet, embellished, and sheer, worn to the office, for lunch or on a date, lighten up in timeless white. Below you’ll find our very own versions of the LWD in three different styles. Each has its own unique details to it.

Spring 2013′s colours, named by Pantone, feature some lovely cheery and soothing colours. Expect to see lots of blues and greens, flirty soft pink and lilac, nectarine (which is a little softer than last year’s tangerine tango), and bright poppy red. Bright colours haven’t gone anywhere yet within the fashion world. While almost any shade of green is hot right now, emerald green has been named the colour for 2013.
Green promotes harmony and balance which is useful for all of us with our busy daily lives. The best thing about green is that it complements pretty much every complexion from blonde to brunette to red heads. A versatile colour, emerald green will be popular going into the fall and winter season as well. The jewel tone is a sophisticated and classic colour with a certain richness and royalty to it. Wear it as clothing, or accessories to stay trendy while playing with a pop of colour.
Below, find some of our favourite green jewelry for 2013.

Our Ruffle Dress in Charcoal Grey is the ultimate feminine look! Crafted in an empire waist baby doll style, it flatters pretty much any body type. Made of a lovely light weight cotton and polyester material, we decided to add a touch of shine with iridescent sequins placed around the neck line. The three quarter sleeves make it a nice choice for cooler months. Wear it with leggings and boots. For warmer seasons, its the perfect dress to wear on its own from day to night. For jewelry, skip the necklace (this dress has enough neck bling on its own), and add a wrist full of bangles or an elegant cuff.
This flirty and functional ruffle dress is available on our website. Check it out plus more of our boho chic styles here. This dress also comes in an abstract black and white floral print which just screams spring time!
The O.C. sweetheart Rachel Bilson is another great example of how to pull off boho chic style to look both casual and sophisticated. Leather jackets, scarves, t-shirts, cute mini dresses, short and maxi length skirts, and peasant blouses are just a few of the items she’s been known to sport. She’s a master at accessorizing and she’s not afraid to play with patterns in bold colours such as animal and graphic prints. Her sweet and sexy style is laid back while also looking polished and put together at any event- even when she’s caught on her days off by the paparazzi.
We also love her cute braided hairstyles and the way the girl rocks a headband so effortlessly! Rachel’s style has been described as eclectic, bohemian and sophisticated all at once. We consider her to be a fantastic fashion icon for the vintage inspired and boho chic look that we adore. She’s definitely as influential as Nicole Richie and Sienna Miller in the bohemian fashionista celeb style department. Below are a few of our favourite looks from Miss Rachel Bilson.
Loose up ‘do with a cute braided headband and funky print scarf.
A lacy little black dress with ruffle hem paired with a chic leather jacket and elegant up ‘do.
A casual look in a plain tank top and maxi skirt in a colourful ethnic inspired print topped off with a black fringy satchel.
Yet another effortless looking hair style with a golden patterned headband for a touch of glam.

We’re very excited to showcase our most glamourous dress- the Fringe Dress with Embellishments! Its that time of year again where holiday parties are abundant and a lot of stylish ladies are on the hunt for the perfect party dress to impress at Christmas soirees.
We love little black dresses and this gorgeous 1920′s inspired fringe dress is an ideal dress to wear for a big night out. Made of viscose and polyester material, the Fringe Dress with Embellishments has stunning sequined patterns crafted onto the bodice on top of sheer mesh material, a flattering empire waist, and of course, a whole lot of flapper style fringe!
This stunning fringe dress doesn’t need a lot of accessories but to glam it up even more at our photo shoot, we styled it by adding our Flower Etched Cuff in Silver and Beaded Silver Hoop Earrings. These two shiny pieces of jewelry added even more of a statement metallic touch which is very trendy this year in fashion. We think the dress is perfect for New Year’s Eve as well. Its really the ideal frock for any party that requires dancing the night away in style!

Which is your favourite runway look?
A metallic touch will give everyday outfits a futuristic feel. Gold, silver, copper and bronze toned pieces create richness and elegance while putting a fresh spin on more timeless looks. Incorporate the look into your wardrobe with shiny solid colours and detailed embellishments on your clothing, jewelry and accessories! To see more products from Metallic Touch, our metallic inspired collection, click here.
We love this trend for fall and winter 2012 and hope it sticks around. These shiny pieces are perfect for the holiday season for those extra special soirees when we all welcome a little extra sheen. Here’s a few ideas on how to wear metallics:
- Pair metallics with neutral colours. For example, a metallic silver skirt with a nude coloured blouse looks tres chic!
- Add chunky metallic jewelry to your little black dress or little white dress (our favourite!)
- Wear clothing with tiny metallic details like embellishments around the neckline in the form of sequins and other shiny touches.
- Try leather jewelry and accessories with silver studs for an edgy and trendy look.
- If all else fails, paint your nails in a shiny silver, gold or copper shade- always a winner and safe bet for those afraid to go overboard on this trend. Same goes for using a metallic eye shadow to complete your look.

What’s your favourite metallic shade- silver, gold, copper, or bronze?
Belts are a great way to flatter your figure as they help provide a lovely hourglass shape to your waist. Just as sporting statement jewelry or shiny shoes, a stunning embellished belt provides an eye catching focal point to any outfit. We’re obsessed with embellishments on our clothing and accessories so we chose to showcase these Embellished Leather Belts, as chosen by our wonderful customers, and the different ways they can be styled.
- Hide lumps and bumps caused by your tucked in t shirt by wearing a wide belt over top to smooth it out.
- Wear a belt around a cardigan or over top a bulky sweater to add some shape to your silhouette.
- Add a belt to your little black dress or body con dress when going out for the night. The belt breaks up your outfit nicely. Try a belt with shiny studs or in a pop of colour.
- Wear a belt to dazzle up a blah blouse and trouser ensemble. This is great for the office on those days your wardrobe needs a little pep.
The bronze studs add a trendy embellished touch to these leather belts. Check out the unique asymmetrical design!
