For the Love of Fashion Friday

I’ve told y’all before about how I’m a big fan of Marilyn Denis. [Sidenote: have not watched The Marilyn Dennis Show since that initial viewing at BFF Debbie’s].

Back when Mar hosted Cityline, I watched pretty much every day (thanks to the beauty of my VCR and later the PVR). [Sidenote: I still have not watched more than three episodes since the end of the Marilyn era].

Every Friday on Cityline, it’s “Fashion Friday.” A guest expert will feature one or two stores or lines of clothing, and there will be a mini-fashion show. My two favourite guest experts, bar none:

Lynn Spence and Sandra Pittana





Put either of them with Marilyn, and I’d literally be laughing out loud for the entire hour.

One of my favourite bloggers also posts a Fashion Friday entry, from time to time. Gina (The Fitnessista)  – not to be confused with this favourite Gina!) has an awesome fashion sense. I loved her latest FF entry – can I please have that lace dress??! – and the clothing styles featured.

So for something a little different today, I’ll share five styles and looks that most excite me for Spring 2011! [Sidenote: I’m not a huge fashionista, but DO enjoy shopping, esp with Mom!]

1. anything Lululemon, for day-to-day wear. Just let me loose in the store. On second thought, better not – that would be way dangerous.


Just one example of the 417 items I could buy in a nano-second.

2. I ♥ graphics!

Lazerade Gogo DressUrban Outfitters: Lazerade Gogo dress

3. “Bohemian casualness”

Ibos TankAnthropologie: Ibos tank

4. Fun Tshirts: I have a tshirt weakness. Seriously. I will show the collection some day. I keep buying them. I would buy this one.

Owl Hoot TeeBluenotes: Owl Hoot Tee ($10!!)

5. “The Missoni Look,” we’ll call this one. Vintage, classic, bright, uniqe – that about sums up my fashion likes!


Will you be shopping for new spring clothing? What’s on your wish list and/or what will you really buy?

I’m going to shop in Aruba, I hope! Also, I buy a lot of casual wear. Dresses interest me but I truly get more wear out of tshirts, hoodies, leggings, and denim shorts!

    I so cannot pull off urban outfitters clothing!

    So funny—I think we’re twins!!!
    Lulu, Anthro, and Urban Outfitters are my faves…and I love funny t-shirts. My local health food store is carrying bamboo t-shirts with all kind of funky sayings and graphics, and at $30 a piece, i have to restrain myself from going overboard 🙂

    I also enjoy Gina’s fashion friday posts. I struggle a little bit now with shopping because I want to buy the cute trendy dressy stuff too, but I wear way more casual stuff.

    Great post–I want that lulu top!

      Glad I’m not the only one who gets a kick out of fun tshirts! I think the next kiki project better be “wear a different tshirt every day for a year!”
      I guess we’d have to start dressing up more when we’re around-the-home to get wear out of the more trendy stuff!

    I love fashionable clothes, but would need to go back to working as a high school teacher as opposed to working with my kids and this cooking job from home to justify buying a crazy amount of dressy clothes again! I love my comfy “activity” clothes right now. Costco rules!

      I hear you!!
      While I do love lululemon, you can find great workout wear at eve zellers for a lot less $. I loved the options available at target in the states that I saw on my florida trip this past summer!
