What Are You Wearing This Season?

Spread - High Heels & Tutus

Hi guys! I’m Jodi, the newest contributor to Spread. I’m super passionate about fashion and am excited to share my ideas with this amazing community. This season I am in love with Rag & Bone. The whole collection is amazing and so wearable, especially their amazing collection of Vests.

I fell in love with the Faye vest the minute I laid eyes on it. The peaked lapel and double breasted style had me hooked and I knew this would be a versatile piece in my wardrobe. Rag & Bone has out done themselves this season with a neutral colour pallet accented with bright reds, purples and oranges.

There is not an item in this collection I wouldn’t love to own. Most of their pieces are sewn in the USA which also appeals to my patriotic nature and sense of community. Their main focus is on classic tailoring and beautifully constructed clothing and they are constantly redefining urban style and how we dress.

What do you guys think? What are you excited about this season?

It’s cold, it’s gloomy, whatever. It’s time to work it.

Black, grey and silver can make a profound statement. Leather pants, a chic jacket, matching toque and some shiny accessories can and will change your mood.

Go for matching tones and crisp contrasts. Don’t overthink it – just be you. ✌️

Your image is either holding you back – or propelling you forward. Check how you’re doing on this Image Insight Scale. I feel…

1. Sabotage

  • Stuck in a rut
  • I’m not getting all the opportunities or relationships I want
  • Undervalued and unnoticed

2. Status Quo

  • Comfortable and sometimes a little bored
  • Good about myself, but I want to be more
  • I want others to see something more in me

3. Savvy:

  • Excited about my potential and the opportunities that just keep getting better
  • I am a valuable person who makes the world a better place
  • Others see the best in me and respect me

Linda’s Ramblings

image1

Hi Everyone!

Thank you so much for following and loving our blog. You guys make us feel ever so special! :)

My name is Linda Arhin and I am the cofounder of Spread and this blog. My partner and I were inspired to create a safe place where authentic and transparent connections with brands we love were nurtured. I grew (and still am) tired of insincere ads with people claiming to love brands only to find out they were paid to say so. Whatever happened to experiencing the brand first before recommending it? With Spread, our vision is to be the place for real authentic experiences, discussions, and relationships to develop with the brands we love. I’m excited to be part of the regular “cast” here on the blog. I’ve titled my segment “Linda’s Ramblings” because as in real life, I ramble on and on and on about everything fashion! And can’t wait to hear about your ramblings too! Let’s have fun about our passion for fashion and style.

P.S If you are wondering who that adorable puppy is, she’s Charlie. Isn’t she a doll?

Chat soon (in two weeks!)

Love,

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Good hYouman

FullSizeRender

The moment I heard about this designer and the story behind him, I was completely intrigued and couldn’t wait to check out his stuff. One of the owners of The Cloakroom in Toronto (my FAVORITE boutique shop in the city) told me about Good hYOUman. The designer’s father passed away so he decided to start creating t-shirts and tanks (with the softest, comfiest fabric ever) with his late fathers quotes in memory of him. I instantly fell in love and went out to buy my first piece from him. Ted, my husband, couldn’t wait to get his hands on one as well.

Each shirt comes with a little card attached of an inspiration story from someone. It adds so much touch to the line you can’t help but fall in love. I am obsessed with this tank, the quote and how it looks. I usually pair it with some jeans either tucked in or tied in the front in a small knot. “Everyone has a story…” Check it out guys!!!

P.S. Sorry about the pictures guys. I’m currently on location shooting and had to get creative with pics and selfies. 😊

Fashion Friday: Army Green Shirt Dress

Slim_Signature_Silk Shirtdress

Equipment’s signature silk shirt is transformed into an office-to-evening shirtdress that marries masculine details with a feminine form. The short, cuffed sleeves give it a cool laid-back appeal! Mara paired the dress with some killer Dolce Vita sandals with snake-embossed straps that give them an exotic feel.

For those of you who live in places that are too cold right now to rock this outfit (myself included), try wearing some warm tights underneath and throwing over a trench, bomber or leather jacket!
