A couple weeks ago, I attended Lotus Leaf Communication’s Fall 2014 preview. Featuring brands like Alex & Ani, Manitobah Mukluks, Guess and Dr. Martens, I enjoyed getting a sneak peek at what’s in store for fall.Guess’ fall 2014 collection is full of luxurious details. From fur to studs and sequins, the inspiration is luxurious and very rock and roll. I loved the faux fur and denim vests with lots of detailing.
Dr. Martens played with prints and textures. I love the camo suede leather backpack above, as well as the beige pony hair brogues. The little kiddy boots in floral prints are also darling!
Henkaa has a new dress in store. I’ve already shared how to wear their versatile convertible dress, but their new iteration has 3/4 long sleeves, and comes in royal blue, so you can channel your inner Kate Middleton!
Saskatchewan-based jewelry store and line, Hillberg and Berk showcased their sparkly baubles. I loved how this season, they had many dainty one-strand necklaces that were very on-trend.
I’ve seen Alex & Ani a lot in the states, but I had fun playing and layering these bracelets from the Rhode Island-based company. Each bracelet is made in the U.S., completely adjustable, and are made of recycled metal. I love that each charm bracelet has three words to represent the energy of the charm. I have my eye on the seashell and starfish, which are nautical and perfect for the summer!
I was also introduced to the lifestyle website, Brika, which stocks a lot of local designers and unique items. Perfect for gift-giving, or if you’re looking for something unique, their curated collection of items are well-priced and a great opportunity to shop local. I love Nicole Tarasick’s YYZ pillows, as well as some of the raw gem jewelry.
While the fall season seems far away, and we’re only gearing up for summer, the products and brands on display got me excited for chilly weather again!
