Charlotte Jenkins is a buyer for Toronto retailer Gotstyle and she strategically organizes her wardrobe so she can get dressed with less stress. “Everything in my closet I can wear right now. This means doing a seasonal flip four times a year, but that’s worth knowing that every morning I can get dressed in minutes.” We asked her to show us what she wears for work, play and weekend.
With gift-giving at the heart of their business, we thought it apropos to ask BRIKA co-founder Jen Lee Koss on what it takes to give the perfect gift. Here’s her expert tips, plus shopping faves for any occasion.
The Honest Company helmed by Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan (FYI: he also happens to be Jessica Capshaw’s huzz) carries everything from tampons and diapers to deodorants and laundry detergent. We were lucky enough to ask Christopher some questions about their non-toxic and clean products and here’s what he said.
As moms we’re all trying to make healthy, clean choices and going green when it comes to what we put on our skin is a step in the right direction.. But in a sea of products touting organic, natural, all-natural and pure on the labels, how do we really know what’s good-for us? Beauty Director Lesa Hannah has some answers.
I quizzed Sylvie Ganter, Founder and creator of Atelier Cologne on her summer-scent rules. A true romantic when it comes to fragrance, Sylvie believes in making your own rules. For her, fragrance is putting a moment in a bottle, meaning that there is no wrong time to wear it. Essentially, she’s saying try to keep cool and enjoy where your fragrance takes you which means I don’t have to sacrifice any of my faves no matter how hot it gets. Yippee.
Stacey Davis has been hard at work on LoveFresh since 2007. She got inspired to trying something new after her work as a stay-at-home mom started to wind down during her 40s and proves it’s never too late to kickstart an idea.
I’ve always been a huge fan of BB and CC creams, and tinted moisturizers, but many of them don’t offer the coverage I’m starting to need now that I’m older. Add hormonal acne (yes—even at my advanced age) to the mix, and the time to trade-up to a full-fledged foundation has come.
This spring the fashion elite will be stocking their closets with the top trends: everything Victorian (loads of ruffles, high neck collars and puffy sleeves), bold florals, paperbag waist pants/skirts, and lingerie-inspired dresses. Sadly, these don’t suit my work-from-home-slash-picking-up-the-kids-from-school lifestyle. And, although I no longer work at a fashion magazine, I still want to look good (right?), even if I am only picking up groceries.
We asked Donnell Enns, menswear purveyor and hip shop owner of Uncle Otis in Toronto, to school us on the Father’s day gifts that will upgrade your husband’s style without turning him off.
When the weather warms up it’s so easy to fall victim to lazy dressing. But lately, we’re tired of our laissez-faire wardrobe. We still have clients to meet, Fun Fair fundraisers, and yes, even a date night or two that demand a certain amount of style. So we visited LINE the Label to get the goods on how to layer (a style we’re really into) for spring/summer.
