Fashion & Finance Friday!

It really is GOOD Friday!!!!!!!!!

Hudson’s Bay (Canadian retailer that also owns Lord & Taylor – click here for more info) is serious!  Expansion plans, sinking a ton of dough into the business and bringing in fab designers such as Jonathan Simkhai (click here to fall in love with some gorgeous clothes!).

It’s so interesting to see a retailer investing in their business and seeing the stock rise, when others are suffering in this economy (such as JC Penny).

Stella McCartney has been royally recognized!

The Queen bestowed the Order of the British Empire award for her service in the fashion industry.  She wore a navy blue suit from her line (naturally) and looked divine!  Interestingly her daddy got the same award (as part of the Beatles) in 1965.

Hoppy Easter Everyone!

Wear a fab pair of heels for the egg hunt – just for the fun of fashion!

Trail Blazers!

Smythe jackets make me drool.  Not a particularly pretty look for me, but I cannot help it – Smythe makes jackets that are that fabulous!

Smythe is the product of two working moms (yet another reason to love their designs) based in Toronto, and their blazers are huge with anyone (Hollywood and elsewhere) who love clean lines, versatility and an a-bun-dance of style!

To celebrate the Canadian Winter Olympics in 2010, Smythe designed this little hooded piece of deliciousness, made out of the iconic Hudson’s Bay Trapper Blanket (I still want one!!!!!)

TNT has collaborated with Smythe for an exclusive micro collection.  The navy blue linen with the gold buttons was my fave…
