As a true girly-girl, I've always been a sucker for shine.  When I see a pair of gold skinnies or a stunning silver statement necklace, I lapse into a mini fashion coma and the world disappears for a minute.  When I come to, my credit card's in the hands of the store clerk and I've bought myself something fantastic.  I don't know how it happens..it's not my fault really -  I blame it all on the sparkle.

From gold gowns to modern silver pencil skirts, designers showed loads of heavy metals on the spring runways.  And though we're used to busting out our metallics only after the sun sets, it's now totally acceptable to wear them all day long.   Whether you're bold enough to wear a full metal jacket or just want to go for the gold with your accessories, shiny silver and gold pieces add the perfect dose of rockstar chic to any outfit.  For work, try adding a cool gold shirt collar or statement necklace to your basic white button-down.  For weekends, throw a shimmery metallic tote or sandals to the mix to instantly glam up even the most casual look.  And since metallics are considered a neutral, they will work with literally everything you own.  Brilliant!

A Little Mom Love




Whether you're 2 or 42, your mom will always be your mom.  You want to get her something personal, something to thank her for all those times she was there for you...and yet, year after year, it all goes back to chocolates and soap.  Not that there's anything wrong with that...

After I had kids, I realized that my mom changed a lot of diapers and I owed her BIG TIME.  So now on Mother's Day, even though she loves the card best of all, (and like any woman, can't live without chocolate and pretty soap), I also try to get her something just a little more personal. These finds will make your mom swoon; from little luxuries that she wouldn't normally buy herself, to stylish treats that she'll absolutely adore, to impressive presents that work perfectly for a group gift (or for the person who wins New Sudbury Centre's $10,000 UWinBig contest.  Here's your Bonus Code: YXQN.  Seamless segway, non?)

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.  Hope you take some time to really relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour this Sunday.  From one mom to another, I know just how much you deserve it!


First Scoop

Mulberry Spring 2012 Campaign - shot by Tim Walker

You know that feeling when you try something on and it just works? The fabric hugs you in all the right places, the colour brings you to life, and best of all, you got it on sale, with a friends & family discount and you STILL have enough money to buy shoes.  BOOYAH!   If this has happened to you, I'm here to make it happen more often.  And if it hasn't?  Not to fret, my soon-to-bloom flower, it will for you, too.  

The Fashion Scoop is here to bring you the absolute best of New Sudbury Centre.  I've scoured the racks and surfed the sites to find you the most covetable, most can't-pass-up-able finds that will put you right at the head of the fashion pack.  I'll share my tips on how to wear the latest trends and how to dress for your body so your shopping trips become much more satisfying.  I'll be your very own personal stylist as you navigate the stores and the season's latest scores so feel free to reach out and ask me anytime you have a may-jor fashion dilemma.  It's what I do..it's what I live for..Oh wait, that sounds very Little Mermaid...

Can't wait to bring you all the Fashion Scoop!
