Up A Notch

Most people would say that not every day is an extra-special, dress-up occasion but as far as we’re concerned....we beg to differ. Here’s a little insight into Sarah & Vivi. We do the happy dance. You know, that little gig you do when you’re excited to see someone? Well, we do that. Every time! Sure, most of it is about being psyched to hang out. But also, we get a charge out of seeing what the other is going to be WEARING! And, while not every dinner party, or concert, or quite frankly, trip to the corner store warrants a ballgown, sometimes it’s fun to turn things up a notch...in the name of FASHION.


Vivi:

Maybe if I wear flowers then they'll actually start growing!! Wishful thinking was never more fun than with this cute little H&M floral print dress. For a little edge, I paired it with a touch of vintage (as I so often do) in this amazing stretch leather belt, my go-to leather moto jacket by Mackage for Aritzia (https://www.aritzia.com/en/product/kenya-jacket/35005.html?dwvar_35005_color=1274) and a pop of colour from peep-toe Sergio Rossi heels. C'mon spring....you can do it!!!!





Sarah:

These pants. THESE!!! PANTS!!! I'm so in love. Armani knows how to make every piece of clothing look so chic and yet feel so effortless. Dolled up with shiny objects like these fierce silver pumps from L'Intervalle (https://lintervalleshoes.com) plus a silver bracelet and all I had to do was throw on a classic H&M sweater to complete the look. Oh, and peeking out from my blonde locks is a necklace from Tova. I'll be sure to wear it again soon so you can see it!




Vivi:

It's fun to shop in stores but my absolute fave is to raid Fernanda's closet. Her style has stood the test of time and though today's fashions obviously excite me, putting together modern looks using mum's designer vintage makes my heart sing. Thank you to Escada for this military-inspired black satin blouse and Anne Klein for this incredible high-waisted pencil skirt. Oh, and a nod to my own vintage Manolo Blahniks (https://www.manoloblahnik.com/us)...can't ignore the shoes!






Sarah:

Not to toot my own horn but it takes a little vision to see how this outfit, made up of such diverse pieces comes together SO well. It's a dix-sur-dix!!! It's got a little of everything...ethereal flowiness in this Charlie Jade dress + warm texture in this Isabel Marant Étoile black sweater + sparkle and shine in these sequined stretch fabric boots + the contrast colour of my faux fur H&M shawl! A little something for everyone. And it's all mine!



Sarah:

Between the two of us, most would peg Vivi as likely to wear more colour but I just couldn't help myself on a recent trip to H&M. The colours were popping and this look just came together in the most perfect way. Could these pink satin pants be more fabulous? I just love the way they make this green & blue wooly sweater pop, especially with bright white Forever 21 booties and a crips white Theory blouse. Each of these bold pieces could be worn separately with more classic pieces like jeans or paired with solid neutral colours, but isn't this look just dazzling?





Vivi:

Time to mix it up. You'll hear me say this often. Vintage + new = stylish! Here, a sculpted Lagerfeld navy & black blazer (from Fernanda, of course) with wide-legged, high-waisted, ankle-length super fun H&M pants. All it took was the simplest pair of black suede pumps & a black velvet bodysuit and I was all set for my outdoor, -its-freezing-where-is-your-coat-for-heaven's-sake business meeting!
