How could you choose? 13 Style Panel members reflect on their favourite outfits ever


Style Panel Favourite Outfit

Can you believe it!? The 100th challenge. For nearly two years, our trusty Style Panel has been conquering style challenges from coast to coast.

In honour of the 100th challenge we wanted to look back at the best-of by asking the Style Panel bloggers to chose a favouriite-ever look. This turned out to be the hardest challenge of all, since narrowing it down to a single look is no easy task. (Asking a fashion blogger to choose a favourite piece of clothing is like giving someone a litter of puppies and then telling them they can only choose one—nearly impossible, and sort of mean.)

The Panel, a handpicked group of Canada’s best-dressed fashion bloggers, has been answering your fashion queries using their unique fashion know-how. They’ve helped figure out Canadian tuxedos, taught us how to conquer normcore and fearlessly navigated through pastels. The Panel has been there like fashion seraphs leading through the sometimes-confusing trend terrain.

Question 100: If you had to choose, what would your favourite look be from recent years? Read the answers now! »

JAG Models: The agency putting the “straight size” vs. “plus size” debate to rest


JAG Models Agency

Over the past year, a select few plus-size models—think: Robyn Lawley, Candice Huffine, and Ashley Graham—have been making breaks for the spotlight in mainstream fashion. From Vogue Italy to Ralph Lauren, these women have nabbed some of the biggest typically straight size (definition: 0-4) jobs in the biz. Though their work is a step forward for all women, plus-size models haven’t been accepted into high fashion as a whole.

The limited exposure of plus-size women in the market often makes it seem like there are only a handful of plus-size models working in the industry. On the contrary, there are a number of plus-size agencies with an even bigger number of curvy models working in New York’s modeling mecca.

To shed some light on these women, we’re setting out to profile the top up-and-coming plus-size models to watch within profiles of agencies that recognize their beauty. Today, we take a look at New York agency JAG Models’ top five girls on the rise.

Afternoon delight: You may look weird wearing a sheet mask on a plane, but your skin will thank you


Holika sheet mask

Tomorrow I’m flying to Dubai and while the journey is sure to be comfortable (thanks, Turkish Airlines!) not even the roomiest seat can combat the dry, dry, dry airplane air. I’ve given heavy-duty moisturizers and facial mists a go on previous long-haul flights, but it’s time to try something new: a sheet mask applied mid-flight. The Holiday Vita A mask from South Korean brand Holika Holika caught my eye, as it nourishes and hydrates skin and there’s 10 per package, meaning I can keep using them daily throughout my trip—I’ll be checking out Le Château’s new store in Dubai—and on the flight home. Sure, I may get strange looks from my seatmates when I cover my face in a sheet, but it does mean that no matter what turbulence may occur, all that hydrating goodness is staying on my skin.

It’s clearly a good week for shoes. One day after Aldo’s Ostwald Helgason collaboration launches, J.Crew‘s equally quirky London designer collection hits the web this Wednesday on April 23, 2014. The much-anticipated Sophia Webster for J.Crew capsule photos have just been released and the shoes are just as cute, colourful and covetable as we expected. The collection of patterned kitten heels, lace-up sandals and T-straps will range from $320-$695, which while steep is still about half of Webster’s signature line pricepoints.
