#YEGSpotlight: Crush and Co.

Happy Thursday everyone! Wooh, today I thought I’d spotlight one of my favorite boutique/boutique owners, it is a boutique on the west side of Edmonton called Crush & Co.! Yes, I’ve collaborated with them a few times already and just love the team as well as their clothing and makeup artistry! If you didn’t know, my makeup is always done by Nina in any Crush & Co. feature, she seriously does an amazing job everytime! Check out some of my day hanging out at Crush & Co.!

Crush & Co. is owned by the lovely Nina Nguyen who started the store with just a makeup station and had no idea that the rest of it would turn it into a clothing boutique. Nina’s journey to where she is now is a great story if you ever stop by and ask her (which I suggest you do!). She didn’t know she was going to be into makeup until she started at MAC, and seven plus years later, she’s still doing it! The store used to be her mother’s bridal boutique that Nina was not interested to have as her own business, so all bridal is now on the upper level of Crush & Co. Nina always had a love for fashion however, and was always a hustler! When she was younger she’d sell her clothes out of the back of her car and her friend’s kept asking for MORE because they loved her style. It was this realization that she decided, with personal touches, selling clothing (in addition to doing makeup) would be the perfect plan. And I’d definitely have to agree…IMG_2192 Continue reading “#YEGSpotlight: Crush and Co.”

Ways to Wear: Slouchy Cardigans for Fall!

CardiganIMG_9267Helloooo September! Yes, I know. We’ve already passed the first week of September, and I’m not just saying that. To be honest, I felt like August wasn’t over yet! I mean, what? Where did summer go? Two days ago I woke up with snow flakes hitting my window!

Anyways, I wanted to suggest a GREAT way to stay warm, while looking effortlessly cute. I’m all about spending money on items that I KNOW I will wear often, have versatility, and stay in style, and today’s item is: slouchy, wool cardigans!

You’ve probably seen them in your favourite clothing store, or in the windows of so many stores at the mall, but seriously, they are inexpensive (usually around $25-$70 a piece, ranging with quality and brand) and are actually so versatile. I have five or six of them, some you will see in the photos below, and when I go to school or work everyday, I just rotate through the colours.

They come in different lengths, thickness, colours, fit, patterns, prices, and they’re also something you’ll keep in your closet for years to come. You can wear this cardigan with leggings, jeans, shorts, dresses, skirts, and rompers, and in any pretty much any season. They look best with a simple top underneath, such as solid colours or a pretty basic patterned top. The thickness, colour, or texture of the cardigan should affect your decision for what to wear underneath. You don’t want anything clashing. However, the point of these cardigans is to keep your outfit-choosing time simple and less complicated!  Continue reading “Ways to Wear: Slouchy Cardigans for Fall!”
