Banana Republic Issa London Collection

8 Aug

Banana Republic Issa London Collection

Today, the talented London designer, Issa, launched her latest collection in collaboration with Banana Republic. This limited edition collection was highly anticipated by many since we can now have a taste of what made her so famous in England and the rest of the world. Issa, designed the famous blue dress that Kate Middleton wore in the official photos that announced her engagement to Prince William. A taste of English fashion has been brought to Banana Republic with designs that are perfect for the office or for a fun night out for drinks with the girls!



I love the touch of sassyness that this video showcasing the collection has! It sets the mood for a fun collection and a flirty edge, that gets even the most serious of men, like a Buckingham Palace guard, to bust a move! Below are some of my favourite designs from their lookbook:

I am really looking forward to visiting a Banana Republic location to try on some of the styles. You can view them all online on the Banana Republic Issa Collection Fall 2013 Lookbook. Which styles are you favourites? It really is difficult to pick just one! As Banana Republic puts it, they have collaborated on this collection “that’s fit for a queen, but made for you”!

Shop for Jayu’s Green Carpet Fresh Collection Launch

7 Aug

SFJ Green Carpet Fresh Collection Launch

As many of my friends know, I have a soft spot for Shop for Jayu’s designs so I could NOT miss this event! I was very excited to browse and shop their latest Fresh Collection on the day of their launch.

The lovely Sally Han, founder and designer for Shop for Jayu, gave us a warm welcome on July 27, 2013 as we walked in to The Gladstone Hotel; which was decorated with a green carpet at the entrance to set the mood. The vibrant venue and layout truly brought the new collection to life! The new designs are a new look for Shop for Jayu, containing pieces which include vibrant colours, that can be worn on an everyday basis or can be dressed up for a night out look.


As I browsed through the new collection, I felt like a child in a candy store. I could not get enough and it was way to difficult to pick which designs I was going to take home with me.  I usually opt for the pieces with a bit of an edge to them since that is my personal style; girly with SFJ Fresh Launch Collage 3an edge. One of the pieces that caught my eye was a single spike pendant with a rhinestone at the head of the spike. It was hard to pick between gold, silver or copper; but I finally opted for the gold. The exact name of this design is Aislin Gold. Next I browsed around the rings, which were absolutely adorable! I decided to take home the Spike Opening Ring in Gold, the Sailor Ring in Silver, and the Snake Wrap Around Ring. Don’t for a second think I forgot about their fab bracelets…cause I didn’t! I got the Arrow Bracelet in Silver. These are just some of the designs available that day so I, of course, snapped a few more so you can get a better idea of what the new collection features.

Of course, no Shop For Jayu pop-up shop is completely if treats aren’t present! they had an adorable old style pop corn machine set up so that you can enjoy a snack while you experience the new Fresh Collection. Another wonderful perk about this event is that we got to experience Bio Seaweed Gel for the first time! The girls were lovely and so was the polish! I promise to tell you more about it in an upcoming post. It is definitely worth a try!

I hope to see you at the next Shop for Jayu pop-up shop! Keep in mind that if you shop at these events you can save 15% off purchases with their social media discount – all you have to do is like them on Facebook or Instagram, or follow them on Twitter!
