True North Style

From Toronto to Vancouver, here are the Canada-based bloggers we look up to!

Adventures in Fashion. What we love most about Adventures in Fashion is how each outfit represents a facet of blogger Vickie’s personality: delightfully playful, unapologetically tongue-in-cheek with the just-right dose of daring. Vickie’s outfits are an excellent lesson in how to incorporate that single “out there” item, the one piece that has lingered in your closet and you can neither bring yourself to throw it out or wear it out. Vehemently embracing the wild and brilliant prints from which others would shy away, Vickie is the prime source for inspiration to give you courage to bust out that animal printed bomber, swipe on that brilliant pink lipstick and clash those vivid prints  -- all of which Vickie already has and with aplomb!

Dentelle+Fleurs. Edited by the triple threat writer, stylist and photographer Gabriella Lacasse, Dentelle+Fleurs is a must-bookmark for any girl looking to stay ahead of the fashion times, while still exercising her own opinion over what is in and what is out. Dentelle+Fleurs pull inspiration from all over to generate a communal conversation around the current trends while forecasting trends for the season ahead. Their easy DIY projects, to the point beauty ideas and Gabrielle’s effortless style make any seemingly daunting trend feel wholly accessible and Dentelle+Fleurs is poised and ready to offer you tips on how to sport that look.

Elizabeth Victoria Clark. Hiking in tribal printed leggings, soaking up the sun in a denim romper and braving the cold in a leopard jacket, blogger Elizabeth Victoria is a veritable style chameleon, ranging from sporty to retro over the span of a week. Although we are in the height of summer, note Elizabeth’s blog for winter style inspiration. Her collection of scarves, beanies and sweeping coats styled with leather leggings and kick booties will keep your fashion juices fresh straight through till spring 2015.

Her Waise Choice. Jen Tam of Her Waise Choice is one of our favorite sources for a fresh perspective on office-appropriate work wear. Jen’s style is modernly feminine and her presentation is always immaculately pulled together. We particularly admire (and abide by) her style philosophy, “You can be stylish without being superficial, on trend without being a slave to fashion and look good without looking down on others.”

Savvy Home. Consider Savvy Home the abridged version of your favorite Pinterest home décor boards, collecting only the best of the best for interior design imagery. Pairing fashion finds alongside home goods, Savvy Home shows how your living space is an extension of your personal style and vice versa. If you’re particularly inspired by Savvy Home, you can hire founder Gabrielle Savoie as an e-decorator to help you organize, rearrange and spruce up your space!
