InStyle for Nine West (+ a Giveaway)

ASOS Salon floral coat  //  Ann Taylor top  //  Old Navy jeans  //  Nine West ‘Tessa’ heels (c/o)  //  Nine West clutch (c/o)  //  Ray Ban aviator sunglasses  //  Nine West bracelet (c/o)  //  Baublebar ring  //  Michael Kors watch


If you are a regular reader here, I’m sure it’s evident by now that I’m partial to Nine West shoes.  They make the perfect shaped, oh-so-comfortable pump, and reproduce it each season in trendy as well as classic colors, and in varying heels heights.  I own more of these shoes than I care to admit.


Nine West recently partnered with InStyle Magazine to launch a limited edition capsule collection of expertly-crafted shoes, bags and jewellery designed by the editors of InStyle.  I was beyond thrilled to be asked to select a few pieces from the collection to add to my closet.  I was immediately drawn to these stunning leopard heels and matching leopard clutch.  It was a tough decision though, because I also had my eye on these fabulous lace-up heels (which I will almost definitely purchase soon).  These heels are surprisingly comfortable, and really look perfect with everything.


To celebrate the launch of the InStyle for Nine West collection, I’ve partnered with Nine West Canada to giveaway a $100 gift card!  Entering is simple, through the Rafflecopter widget below.  The contest closes August 24, and you must have a Canadian address to win.  Good luck!

Over the last two months, I had the exciting opportunity to act as a Brand Ambassador for 424 Fifth, the new private label by Lord & Taylor that launched this Spring exclusively at Hudson’s Bay in Canada and Lord & Taylor in the United States.  Sadly, my time as a 424 Fifth Brand Ambassador has come to an end, but this certainly won’t be the last you’ll hear or see of this brand here.


The collection (and now also my closet) is full of fresh, modern and pretty pieces, made from beautiful fabrics in classic styles that I’ll be wearing for years to come.  424 Fifth will be soon be releasing their Fall 2014 look book, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see what they have in store for the upcoming season.  Below is a little “look book” of my own, recapping the six 424 Fifth looks I’ve worn over the last 2 months.  Most of these items are still available in store, at or at
