Last night, Ottawa had a chance to celebrate a piece of New York Fashion Week with Club Monaco at CF Rideau Centre. Once again, Club Monaco nails it out of the park with elegant, feminine and classic designs for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. The line was inspired by the French documentary Latcho Drom , which follows a family of travelers as they journey from Romania to India. Club Monaco remains true to their signature urban style, and manages to weave in the notable Gypsy details, like peasant tops, bells and frills, all inspired by the film.
Today, I’m sharing my favourite bell sleeve dress fashion trend for winter 2017. Whether it comes in a blouse, sweater, jumper or dress, I want it all! It seems to make everything more elegant, more flirty and more fun. Although impractical at the office, and sometimes a pain under your jacket, my heart still longs for bell sleeves and frills all day long.
This time of the year calls for the “Dryfecta”. It’s a brutal combination of the cold weather, the dry air from indoor heating and if you’re fortunate enough, post-vacation suntanned skin. That’s what I have right now. I just came back from my trip to Hawaii and I am in dire need of Vichy’s moisture cocoon routine to nurture and hydrate my dry skin back to good vibrant health. With a combination of drinking loads of water (using a fun bottle of course!), blasting a humidifier in every room, and hitting “loop” on my Vichy routine… I think I got this!
