C'est Moi

One of my favorite things about blogging is sharing some of my favorite brands, some which I have been wearing for years.  One of those brands is C'est Moi.  C'est Moi (meaning 'It's Me' in French) is a Canadian company established in 1989 based in Toronto, Ontario.  (Don't worry you can get their products in the USA as well!)  They offer classic and trendy pieces in all sizes (regular and plus)!   You can find C'est Moi online (Canada - click here,  USA - click here) but I personally discovered them years ago in a local trendy boutique!  The first piece I bought made by C'est Moi was a classic black long sleeve fitted top.  I couldn't believe how luxurious it felt as it was made from bamboo!   From there I couldn't stop buying all the C'est Moi bamboo products! 

 

Not until more recently I discovered they make not only the classic fitted bamboo pieces but they also make quite trendy pieces!  Pieces I discovered the offered were oversized knits, cardigans, pretty tops and statement tops with unique details, athleisure wear including: leggings, jogger pants, sports bralettes and fun loose fitting bamboo styles!  

 

In my blog post I am styling 4 of C'est Moi's latest pieces for spring and summer and I am so impressed! 

 

 

 

Bamboo


Of course I couldn't do a blog post without wearing a few pieces from the bamboo line!  Especially since the bamboo line is what made me fall in love with C'est Moi in the first place!  These bamboo pieces are absolutely stunning!  One of my favorite things their bamboo clothing is how the fabric keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter!  Definitely a bonus as it's been so hot here lately and these pieces are fantastic for keeping me cool!  Bamboo is the most eco-friendly fabric on the planet and it's a natural UV protectant! Can't get much better than that!  Both of these pieces I am styling are more than 95% bamboo and the rest is spandex just to give the fabric some stretch.  

 

 

 

Bamboo t shirt dress - The t shirt dress I am wearing is such a cute piece!  I absolutely adore the soft lilac color but it also comes in a variety of colors too!  I chose to belt the dress as I love to accessorize but it can be worn loose and looks just as perfect!  This dress has just the cutest front pocket detail so you can carry a few small things if you would like.  I must say this dress is so soft and comfy that it feels like wearing pajamas.  I felt amazing in it!  I can just throw this dress on and I am ready to go out looking so put together!  The high low detail at the hem is quite neat too!

Bamboo scoop neck top - This bamboo top is a must have in my closet!  It's the softest t shirt I have ever worn!  It is semi fitted and looks amazing dressed up or dressed down!  I chose to wear it here tucked into a bold sequin skirt for a dressy look but I have worn it with just a simple pair of capri pants and it looks just as awesome.  I love that this top is so great to wear for both casual and even for a special event!  Don't forget that it has amazing breathability so you will stay perfectly cool in the summer while looking fantastic!

Fun tops

 

T shirt with mesh back - The minute I saw this mesh back t shirt I knew I needed to have it!  I absolutely love that the front of this top looks like a sweet simple cotton t shirt and then you see the mesh back detail and it takes it to a whole different level!  I really love that you can cinch in the back to be as tight as you would like to give it some shape.   I don't often show too much skin so I styled this top with a nude colored top underneath.  This gives the illusion of skin without showing any and this also hides your bra as well.  I think layering this top with a white tank or a fun color underneath would be neat too.  I decided to wear this top with just simple capri pants when I went out just to make the top the star of the show!   By adding some fun accessories I made the outfit perfect for me!  I can't wait to wear this top with a fun skirt as well!

Knitwear

 

Side slit patterned cardigan - This year I been obsessed with long cardigans!  I absolutely love to layer my outfits and in the spring and summer finding a lightweight cardigan is a must!  This cardigan is my go to piece!  I love the open pattern and the nude color makes it great to layer over anything.   As you can see in my photos this cardigan can be worn a couple of different ways.  Since it has high side slits you can either wear the cardigan long and loose over your outfit or you can tie it loosely in the front to give it a different look.   I think this cardigan looks amazing over one of my favorite C'est Moi bamboo tops that I am wearing!  I can't wait to wear this cardigan over all my summer dresses as well!

Hot Chocolate Design

I cannot resist cute shoes! Can you?!  For awhile now I have been seeing Hot Chocolate Design shoes online or through Instagram posts and I have loved pretty much every pair I have seen! They have the cutest designs!  Most of them are super quirky and that really interests me!  What I mean by quirky is that most of the pairs have mismatched designs on each foot.  The designs go together but they are just a little bit different!  I decided I needed a pair for myself!  The pair I decided on is this adorable bee pattern flat (click here to see them) called the Chocolaticas Honey.  This pair just made me smile immediately!  I do love golden yellow and I adore bees (although sometimes I am scared of them, LOL)!

 

The minute I got them in the mail I was impressed!  The packaging is shaped like a milk carton!  That is just so sweet and very unique!  The bottom of the package easily opens and the shoes slide out.  You can keep the cute carton to store your shoes in if you want!

 

These shoes are made completely out of fabric except for the rubber sole.  So just know that before you buy them.  I personally love that as they are super soft and comfortable!  I would say the width is a wider width so if you have a wide foot this shoe would work for you.  Also make sure to check the size chart before you order to make sure you get the right size.  Hot Chocolate Design gives you exact measurements!  I would recommend to order your regular shoe size or even size down.  Do not size up as you will find them too big.  The shoes do not come in half sizes so if you are a half size, size down.

 

Once I put the shoes on I loved them! How could I not?! Just looking down at my feet made me smile!  Of course I couldn't resist making my whole outfit bee themed!  I could just as easily wear them with all black and I would still stand out as everyone would be looking at my shoes!

 

 

Too see all the fun designs that Hot Chocolate Design offers including fun patterns like Bacon and Eggs, Watermelon, Popcorn, Floral prints and even the World Map: click here too see them   (This will take you to the Canadian site but you can select your own Country at the top right corner of the web page)

First Sign of Spring

Tuesday, May 01, 2018

 

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

 

The first sign of spring to me is definitely when there no snow in sight! Finally!  As you can see in my photos there is no green yet either but that should be any day now!  I can see the smallest of buds on the trees.  Since there are no flowers out yet I thought I could at least encourage them to come out faster by wearing some!  I doubt it works that way but I can try right, right?!  

 

 

This beautiful midi length dress from Chicwish is a stunning piece!  Just look at the gorgeous floral bouquet pattern!  I do love the longer sleeve length in this dress too.  The sleeves come to a little past the elbow but I have scrunched them up to stop right at the elbow.  The fabric of this dress holds it's shape, so the skirt stays full even on the windiest day like it was when I took these photos.  At least my dress didn't blow over my head! That would have made for some interesting pictures! LOL!  

 

 

Doesn't this bright floral pattern make you feel ready for spring?

Adorable Socks and Tights from Tabbisocks & Narasocks

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

 

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

 

 

Socks and tights are something that I adore to wear and wear them pretty much every day!  I think they are the perfect way to add a little bit of personality into any outfit!

Tabbisocks has provided me with a few different pairs of socks and tights to try out but all views in this review are my own.

 

Tabbisocks really do make the most quality socks and tights!  I should know as I have been wearing them for years now!  I can't get enough!  All pairs of socks and tights are made in Japan with the best materials!   See all the products Tabbisocks has to offer by clicking here

 

I absolutely need to wear tights in the winter to keep warm but I think they are just perfect to wear all spring and on cooler summer days!  The weather this year has started out to be not so great so I am sure I will be wearing my tights all year long in this case! Oh well at least I will look good!

This pair I am wearing below has the cutest pattern ever! Alice and Wonderland theme! Absolutely adorable! (see them here)

 

These tights are a cotton blend so they are nice and soft and of course they have some nylon and spandex to give them great stretch!  The cotton blend makes them perfect for the warmer weather too!  I like that the pattern is quite subtle but still really fun!

Over the knee socks are always a really fun choice in legwear! I like having the option of hiding the top of the socks or showing them.  Since the day I took these photos was a bit chilly I preferred to blend them under my dress.  These super cute peacock over the knee socks are really neat. (see them here)  I love that the pattern is just one big giant peacock on the outside of both legs.v This sure makes a cute statement!  These socks are cotton blend as well with spandex and nylon for stretch. Again the cotton blend makes them great for the warmer weather too.  You can also fold the top over to make them not as high on your leg.

One of my favorite things to wear with my ankle pants all year round is sheer socks!  I can't get enough of them!  I absolutely love the way they look peaking out at the bottom of my pants!   I am sure you have noticed my love for them by looking at my blog and Instagram page!  So you can imagine my excitement with these Banana sheer socks (see them here).  These socks are a nylon blend with cotton and acrylic.  I can't wait to wear these socks with skirts as well!  I think the Minions would approve of these socks for sure!

Sheer tights are always classic but by adding a cute print to them makes them even better!  The polka print of this pair is so sweet and really adds just a little something special to the whole outfit.  (Check out this pair here)  I have always been a little scared of sheer tights because I was worried they would snag easily.  Well that is not the case with these tights.  Since Tabbisocks uses high quality materials this did not happen.  I have worn these tights a few times and they still look absolutely perfect!

As you can see my style is always changing from day to day! One day I am super dressy and the next I am a little more casual!  But for all of my looks Tabbisocks has something perfect to wear with my outfit! Check them out! You won't be disappointed!

Kate Spade touchscreen Smartwatch Review - wearable tech

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

 

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

 

This is a review on my new touchscreen Smartwatch from Kate Spade. I purchased this watch myself from The Bay.  

 

 

Until recently I had a very simple Kate Spade fitness tracker that I was given as a gift. I loved it as I personally didn't need a very fancy tracker.  I am sure you have seen me wearing it in a few of my outfit posts as I never took it off.  I wore it all day, every day.  I had it for about a year and half and then the silicon strap broke about 2 weeks ago.  Very sad day! Since the strap and tracker are one piece the strap is not replaceable so I had to say goodbye :( 

 

 

I immediately, I mean immediately went online to find a replacement fitness tracker.  Most people in my family have a FitBit and really like them so I checked them out first but I wanted something a bit more girly and more dressy that suited my style.  Since I liked my previous Kate Spade fitness tracker I checked out what was available there.  I noticed that Kate Spade no longer carried my last simple fitness tracker.  I am sure it's probably because of the strap issue and probably it was a bit too simple in terms of what it could do for most people.  I did find online that Kate Spade now had a new touchscreen Smartwatch.  I was immediately in love with the way it looked! Truly a stand out piece.  I normally love Kate Spade things so no big surprise there.  The watch is run by Wear OS by Google (was previously Android Wear) so to me that's another bonus as I currently own a Samsung S7 and I knew it would pair perfectly. I watched the YouTube video of how the watch worked (watch it here) and decided it was the one for me so I purchased it.  I  purchased it from The Bay in Canada as the price was better in my currency.

As soon as I got the watch in the mail I was so excited! I know that sounds funny but I get excited by the small things! LOL!  Immediately upon opening the package and seeing the watch I knew this was definitely an upgrade from the last fitness tracker I had!  Setting up the watch is very simple.  First thing I had to do was obviously charge the watch which I think took a few hours to do.  Then I paired my watch with the Wear OS by Google app (previously was Android Wear).  The app walks you through the steps so no problems there.  The watch itself comes with a few apps but you can add as many as you want just by going to the Play Store app on the watch itself.   

 

A few of the things this watch can do is:

- Track activity such as step count, calorie count and sleep

-  View and answer all emails, texts and messages

-  View all notifications, including: Instagram, Facebook, etc

-  Play music

-  Calendar reminders 

-  Voice activated (I am constantly asking it questions! LOL)

-  Tons of watch faces to choose from, including a feature for it to match your outfit!

-  Google map directions

-  Option of showing a second time zone

 

I have had the watch now for about 2 weeks and I do love it! I honestly just bought it for the activity tracker feature but I am impressed by how many things this watch really can do! I am sure I will figure out many more of it's uses as time goes by.

 

 

Here are a few pictures of the on-screen features and functions:

Press the side button and all available and downloaded apps come up.  Scroll through with your finger until you see what you are looking for.  New apps can easily be downloaded from the Play Store right from the watch!

Track you activity and count your steps!

 

 

 

Winnipeg Style, Canadian Fashion blog, Stylist, Kate Spade scallop touchscreen smartwatch watch, wearable tech review, OS by Google, android wear

 

Voice activated! It listens to you! Tap the button on the side and say 'OK Google' and ask anything you want to know!  I asked "What's the weather like today" here.  It shows the question what you are asking right on the face!

 

 

 

Winnipeg Style, Canadian Fashion blog, Stylist, Kate Spade scallop touchscreen smartwatch watch, wearable tech review, OS by Google, android wear

 

It listens and then shows you the answer to your question! As you can see it showed me the weather! A very cold day indeed!  If you scroll down it will give you more weather details!

The watch face can match your outfit exactly! By selecting the 'Choose your look' app on the watch you can pick the exact shade of your outfit, bag, jewelry color and if it's day or night.  I picked that I was wearing a blue top, a pink bag and that it was day time.  I chose the silver jewelry option because I wanted it to match my silver rose pail bag as you can see it in the background.  Then just press the middle spade button.

This is the face that it picked for my outfit!  Isn't that awesome!  If you don't like the face it picked for you it will give you other options as well.  This face style is really neat as it shows my step count for the day so far and also a second time zone.  I chose the time zone to be for New York but you can choose any other time zone you want!

This is an adorable pre-programmed face option that comes with the watch!  Isn't it the cutest?!  You can also change the white background to be another color.  The taxi on the screen actually drives off the watch face and disappears too!

This pre-programmed face has a really neat feature to it! When you have an un-read notification or email it winks one eye! As soon as you read the notification/email the eye opens up again!

There are different styles of straps that this watch can have.  I chose the black leather version for myself but you can also choose a metal strap as well.  The price of the metal strap version is a bit higher.  I like the leather version as it fits my small wrist very well.  My wrist is about 5.5 inches around and I can either use the smallest hole or the second smallest hole.  This watch can definitely fit a bigger wrist as well and would look nice as the face is quite large.  The size of the watch is 1.75 inches across including the side button.  So quite substantial in size.  The watch face is quite thick as well.  It's about 0.5 inch.  It's a little computer though so it has to be a little thicker.  The thickness does not bother me at all and I don't even notice it.  The website says the battery lasts about 24 hours but I have had a couple of days that it lasted 2 days.  It just depends on your use.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed reading my Kate Spade touchscreen Smartwatch review!  I honestly was just looking for a simple replacement to my broken fitness tracker but I think I got a whole lot more with this watch!
