Blooming Florals

We absolutely LOVE spring! The bright sun is shining and the beautiful flowers are blooming. The rain is falling and things are feeling so fresh. This spring there are so many textures and patterns to play with. It’s time to throw off your parkas, mitts and toques. We are so excited to show you some flirty spring outfits! Xx

This photoshoot was so uplifting and inspiring! Being creative and giggling with such amazing women was getting us so excited for Saskatoon’s sunny warm weather.

This embroidered dress has the most adorable details. Just add a silk bomber for some edge and for cooler nights out too. ūüėČ

I got the opportunity to do makeup for these gorgeous women with such sweet souls. Simplicity and accentuating the features of everyone’s unique beauty is so important to me. A natural look was created for these two ladies. I focused on creating healthy glowy skin using creams and highlighters. Textured unperfected brows have been my muse lately. I used a brow power and brushed them upward using my favourite tinted brow gel. Try texturizing your brows for a fresh spring makeup look. It’s so fun!

More flowers please and thank you!

You can’t go wrong with floral and denim! xoxo

Hello Miss Sunshine. This yellow sings spring, spring, spring doesn’t it?

Hope you have the loveliest day and enjoy the beautiful weather. Get out there and soak in the sun. Good bye winter. See you next year. But as for you, chat again soon! XXXX

Never Ending Summer

We love when summer drags on endlessly into fall.  The warm nights are dark and sweet.

The jackets come out to layer over summer dresses.

Prints and patterns are tamed down with neutrals.

 

Happy Lunar New Year, Red Dress Shopping

We had the cutest customer in the shop yesterday, looking for a red dress to wear to her Chinese New Year celebration.  She was telling us all about her families expectations for her and how she was reluctant to follow their traditions.  Yet, there she was, going out of her way to hunt for the perfect dress.  She may have pushed the boundaries on her hair colour and accessories, but she wanted to make her family happy.

red_floral_dressSo much of who are is based in us either following these expectations or running from them.

It’s when we take a stand and do what works for us, but still borrow from these deep traditions that we really become our own person.¬†

This is the sparkle in someones eye, the extra glow they have that make them one of a kind, the type of person who loves who they’ve become.¬†So make sure you are you!

We love dresses!

 

 

 

All Black Everything

Sometimes winter has us in a mood, and it seems only appropriate to dress to match. Luckily for us, it’s impossible to go wrong with black- it goes with everything, and is appropriate for pretty much any occasion. Our little black dress is always there for us, but there are a couple other pieces we couldn’t live without.

A black hoodie is a major staple in our wardrobe- although a typically casual piece, it can be dressed up when paired over a silky romper with heels.

The black hoodie is also a great piece for layering- we love the look of hoods hanging from underneath black leather jackets or silky bombers (not to mention the extra warmth that it adds is a major bonus).

Black leggings are also a definite wardrobe staple- pretty sure everyone owns a pair of these!

We love these particular leggings because the knee slit adds an extra bit of edge to any outfit, without sacrificing comfort. Pair it with this black turtleneck crop top (or white if you want to change things up!) for a simply chic look.

We also have amazing fleece lined leggings for those who need that extra warmth in these chilly months.

Lady In Lace

We love this teal lace maxi dress– especially with such a lovely backdrop!

There`s nothing like the luxury of wearing a stunning dress while exploring a stunning city, such as Paris.

Although if travel is not in your near future, it`s a good thing Saskatoon is considered the Paris of the Prairies!

We even get to indulge in French desserts, such as the decadent macaron, thanks to the Little Bird Patisserie in Riversdale- the perfect place to spend an afternoon drinking tea and eating sweets while feeling fancy in your favourite dress.

One of the great things about this lace dress is that it comes in a multitude of colours– all of which are available in store at Tonic, or online at Farminista!
