This week’s Girl of the Week, AMRIT BAIDWAN is the lovely owner of Ishara, a sweet store at Oakridge Centre. Don’t miss this undiscovered retail gem, filled with delightful brands like Smythe, Graham & Spencer, ba&sh and Development.
Style notes… Sophisticated yet feminine with LOTS of color
Fave designers… I love some of the more contemporary designers; Rory Beca, Madison Marcus, Tibi, Barila. They have the design and construction of some of the more established design houses, but with a younger, more modern edge.
Beauty routine… Frequent facials at Spruce Body Lab, Principessa Bacio Me lip balm and a Shu Uemura eyelash curler.
Feel your best in… Dresses; one step and you’re done, it’s the easiest outfit to pull together and you always look polished.
Splurge on… A well tailored jacket or coat. It sets off any outfit and is well worth the investment.
Trend you’re itching to try… A full jumpsuit; it’s such a glam look, but I’m not sure if I’m quite ready for it yet.
Currently craving… Cupcakes
Best find ever… A heavily embellished Pashmina I picked up at a market in India.
Fashionably inspired by… Diane von Furstenberg; not only for the iconic wrap dress, but for continuing to present bold prints, femininity and glamour as a way of life.
You can never have too many… Handbags; there’s always room for one more.
Fashion commandments… Don’t try to look like everyone else, the more color the better, and tights are not pants!
