Save or Splurge – July

Save or Splurge – July

If you love shopping like I do, I’m sure you should know by now that it’s important to look around before purchasing that IT item you’ve been dying to invest in. For starters sometimes you can find that same IT item somewhere else for a more affordable price. So I ask you would you rather save or splurge? My advice to you is don’t buy anything on impulse, try to look around and see what your best options are. I guarantee, you will save yourself a lot of money this way. Head over to Urban Planet and Suzy Shier to check out all their great deals on the latest trends.


Trousers are comfortable work-ready bottoms that will make your 9-to-5 much more tolerable than your regular skinnies. Style them with a button-up and heels for a sophisticated look to the office.

Wrap Dress

Wrap dresses are a great alternative to pants for work during the summer. Style this dress with nude strap heels or with ankle boots in the fall. You can also wear this dress to dinner or a networking event. A classic wrap dress features a tie waist, V-neckline, and an A-line skirt – making this dress the most figure-flattering option.

Patchwork Dress

Since patchwork pieces are no longer reserved for bohemians or nimble fingered kitting groups, these pieces will slot seamlessly into your summer wardrobe. Patchwork dresses already have so much going on that I’d style it with a simple shoe, such as a plain color that keeps the focus on the dress.

Snakeprint Shorts

The snakeskin trend has slowly been gaining traction over the years and has now officially taken over the fashion world. I’m sure the snakeskin print has already slithered into your closet in many different forms. But why not make room for one more. These shorts pair perfectly with any color and any top, whether over a bodysuit or under a kimono.

Platform Boots

This style shoe can literally be worn with anything and everything. Style them summer dresses, shorts, jeans and more. They also come in black and many other colors. Platform boots are extremely comfortable and durable and even give you some extra height thanks thanks to the platform soles, which I think are actually the key to why they’re so attractive.

Cropped Denim Jacket

Nothing screams 90’s more than the cropped denim jacket. Pair them with some of your favorite transitional outfits. From pairing them with maxi dresses and sneakers or giving new life to our favorite Canadian tux, the options are endless.

Mesh Sheer Bodysuit

The mesh bodysuit is a combination of daring and classic, elegant and edgy, and sassy and sweet, that you’ll want to have in your closet. This bodysuit definitely requires some sort of layering situation to avoid any unwanted wardrobe malfunctions, but when styled correctly, is has potential to be one of the most gorgeous looks you’ve ever styled. I’d go with the all black look you see to the right – styles with cargo pants and pointy toe heels.

Chambray Shirt Dress

Denim is great and all, but there’s another fabric I think is just as deserving of being a summer wardrobe go-to: chambray. Style this dress with nude strap heels and straw bag.
