Last week Simons launched their new Facebook page and kicked it off with a great contest for fashion fans across Canada. On top of that, they invited a few fashion bloggers to shop the new collections online or in-store so that we could share with our readers our favourite spring trends from Simons. Research with a gift card – that’s not so hard to do!
Here are my two looks that I picked up on the weekend for a fresh zurbaine-inspired springtime wardrobe. If you’ve been thumbing the fashion mags you’ll already know that for spring oh-twelve, it’s zurbaines signature colours that are seen everywhere.
If you like to shop online – here’s a necessary staple for your spring outfits: the Vero Moda super stretch wonder jegging! (That’s what it actually says on the tag!) And since they are only $49, why not buy the hot pink AND the tangerine? (They also come in bright, royal blue.)
The second piece of clothing I fell for is available only in the store, but it’s worth the excursion. Hit the escalator and head straight for the designer collections where you’ll find a panoply of high end fashion including a selection of Montreal designers (Cluc Couture, Philippe Dubuc, Eve Gravel… just to name a few). I tried on a mountain of clothes, but it was this dress by Elie Tahari that got the unanimous deciding vote from my expert fashion consultants (my guy, two other clients and the very professional salesperson who ran for my different sizes). And the price! A steal at $98 for such an amazing designer dress. I felt like that woman in the IKEA commercial who runs out of the store with her purchases telling her husband to step on it because she thought she got away with paying less than she was supposed to.
To inspire your spring wardrobe, I also picked up these great bracelets that you see in the third photo above (click next on the photos of me) – to offer to one lucky zurbaine-fashionista. To participate: LIKE our Facebook page and leave a comment at the bottom of this page by telling us what you like best about the looks I scored for spring. The random draw will take place March 19th!
Don’t forget to participate in Simon’s contest as well because for each 100 new Facebook fans they’ll be giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky fan! The grand prizes are also pretty slick: 4 fans will win a $1000 wardrobe that they will shop for in-store with the help of a stylist.
