According to Pam: Fur is Back

9 Jan

After spending my two week winter break reading (magazines of course), I seem to have come to a conclusion: Fur is totally back.

Even though this fashion staple has been popular for a few seasons, it keeps reappearing on runways for it luxurious feel and classic touch that designers love.

In fact, I bought my first fur vest just a few weeks ago. I used to find the trend a tad too pretentious and “madame” for my style, but as I looked through magazines and catalogues over break, I noticed that fur details were not too mature at all, but rather trendy and fashionable.

I noticed fur trimming collars and cuffs of jackets or skirts, which puts a playful spin on boring and dark winter apparel.

Also, fur shrugs have grown in popularity this season. My opinion: A fur shrug should be a staple in every fashionista’s closet. My fur vest keeps me warm (well, kinda), looks cute and makes me feel much more glammed up when I’m wearing it. Pair it with a chunky watch and studs for a put together, boho look.

Finally accessories such as hats, boots, gloves and even bags are highlighting the trend. I haven’t personally seen any around yet, but I find something cute about a fur clutch-don’t you?

The final verdict: I recommend everyone purchasing at least one warm and furry item (whether it be real or faux).

It looks like this trend is going to stay around for a while.


Now I am going to finish the last few pages of this month’s Vogue-school starts tomorrow-why do I have a feeling my magazine reading won’t last very long?

According to Jess: Young, and already an Icon

8 Jan

I’d like to ring in the New Year by giving some attention to an underestimated fashion star. Most known for her role as the bitch on MTV’s “The City”, Olivia Palermo’s constant effortless chic is inspirational to fashion bloggers/lovers everywhere. Every time she steps out onto the streets, the paparazzi seem to find her, always impeccably dressed.
Olivia’s go-to look is usually menswear-inspired, mostly perfectly executed femme-fatale. She brings new meaning to neutrals, always polished yet never boring, pairing classic pieces with subtle pops of an inner wild side others didn’t know she had. Whether in YSL, Prada, or any other creation of the fashion gods, Olivia always seems to embody power and independence, but also true femininity.

While her TV career was short-lived, her fashion life seems to be ever-lasting. Always on trend, Olivia is already a true style icon.

That’s all for now,

Until next time!




New Year, More Fun: Bring on the Wild Times

30 Dec

So it’s been a while, but Renascence is back and ready for action!

Life has been so fabulously hectic and ferociously wild for the last little while, leaving us virtually speechless (a rare symptom for us!). But no worries, because as the new year approaches, sparkly mini dresses and overflowing glasses of champagne in tow, the three of us are looking forward to kicking off a new year with Renascence.

As we grow older, the cheesiness of a New Year seems to grow: whether you make resolutions or not, the new year allows for renewal and change, and we here at Renascence are using this time to reflect on the past and find fashionable ways to upgrade whatever we can.Get ready for more restaurant raves, fab fashion finds, and super-bitchy fashion critiques.

Wishing all our readers the most spectacular New Years and a year of good health, happiness, fashion “moments”, and of course, excessive partying.

Much Love

According to Pam: Pinterest

24 Sep

I’ve been spending a lot of time on the internet lately. In class, after class, at home- you name it. My latest obsession: Pinterest. It reminds me a bit of tumblr- but if it’s possible-it’s kinda better. Now don’t get me wrong, I could spend hours on tumblr, but the best thing about pinterest is that the pictures are classified under “events,” “recipes,” “photography,” “home decor” etc. You then “pin” the picture to one of your “boards” which are titled Favourite Recipes, Party Ideas or My Style. It’s kind of like an online scrapbook. I’ve started my own account and have started collecting my fave pics, I’ll post it on the blog once I’ve accumulated enough material.

I highly suggest you check out this site, it’s so much fun looking through the pages (and not to mention a total and complete distraction) The picture I’ve attached to my post is one of my faves, anyone share my love for pink outdoor parties?

Comment if you love this site as much as I do.

Ok, I’m off, I need to decide what to wear tonight. Did I mention that I have absolutely NO OUTFIT IDEAS and am leaving in 10 minutes? Wish me luck.

Ok, it’s official, when bored: I ALWAYS turn to TUMBLR.

I’ve been stuck in lectures since 8 am (and I’ll be here until 9 pm tonight)-so lets just say: I made some EXCELLENT contributions.

Check it out-what do you guys think?

Any faves? I could include it as TUMBLR PIC OF THE DAY on facebook tomorrow (oh by the way, I love to do that. Probably one of the highlights of my morning)

I better get back to “listening”

Jess and Fray: why aren’t you in this class?? I need support!!!
