Getting Winter Chic With Lyst

Winter chic outfit

The one thing that is true among all women, is that they love to shop. Now, what if you can shop all your favourite retailers in one place, without moving from your couch and your shopping experience is personalized for you? Do you feel intrigued, yet? Let me introduce you to Lyst, a popular fashion marketplace that lets you browse and shop the world of fashion all in one place (aka, my new obsession).

Lyst lets you create wish lists from your favourite brands and stores like Alice + Olivia, Alexander McQueen, Victoria Beckham, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, ASOS, Zara, Topshop, etc., and then alerts you when the items on your wish lists go on sale and/or are back in stock, brilliant right?

It’s super easy to sign up (it takes seconds), once you do it then lets you select brands to follow. Once you follow all your favourite brands, you can start creating your lists. It’s really that simple.

Since winter is upon us, I decided to create a winter chic outfit, to show you all how easy it is to create a wish list. Let’s be honest, just because it’s cold outside, it doesn’t mean your style has to suffer, right? My main focus was the pop of colour from the Michael Kors messenger tote, I love the blue colour of the bag and the sueded-snakeskin texture.

With the holidays right around the corner, I also created a Holiday Glamour list, a wish list of holiday party outfits, which you can check out here.

For those of you always on-the-go, Lyst also has an app, which you can download on your phone/tablet. So my beauties, are you ready to start lysting?.

Fashion Spotlight: Interview With Shop For Jayu Designer Sally Han & Giveaway!

Sally Han, a Toronto based jewelry designer found her passion for making jewelry at the young age of 19. Since then, she has launched two jewelry brands, Shop For Jayu along with its sister brand Pslams 91:1 Accessories.

Han’s Shop For Jayu collection, which offers fashionable, trendy and bold designs at super affordable prices is currently being sold at numerous stores across Toronto and was recently picked up by Anthropologie in the U.S.

One thing that really inspired me about Sally is that she takes the opportunity to give back, with her Pslams 91:1 Accessories line, she creates jobs for widows and marginalized individuals in Africa, Korea, Canada and beyond.

I chatted with Sally about everything from her pregnancy (she’s expecting her first child, a baby girl!), fashion and of course she dished on her new holiday collection.
