Bree's Beauty Beat: My Three Must-Haves for Skincare

Fall into Glowing Skin

It may be Fall 17’ but this season’s chicest accessory is something you wear proudly every day: your complexion darling! While you’re layering on the best collections of the season, don’t forget to add a few layers of decadent moisture to that beautiful face of yours.

Shopping for beauty products can be totally overwhelming, so I’ve scoured the ends of the Earth (okay, California) to bring the best in beauty to my boutique for those looking to Bree themselves of drugstore skincare.


These 3 products will have your face looking as fresh as your new A.L.C. shearling this fall:

 

If You’re Looking for “The One”: Vintner's Daughter



Add a little magic to your life. I’ve noticed a change in the overall tone and texture of my skin since inviting this powerful potion into my daily routine! I personally swear by this serum and use this day and night. For nighttime use I recommend 4-5 drops on my clean skin after exfoliating with JR Enzyme Exfoliator.  First thing in the morning I  use a couple drops on my skin under my makeup to give me a glow throughout the day.  

_
I also use a couple drops under my makeup if I am going out at night and want that fab glow in tow! If you buy nothing this season, buy this.

 

The Dream Cream: Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream


    Two words: dream cream.  This is a perfect ever day cream heading into Fall as it’s uber-hydrating and luxurious.  I combine this with my beloved Vintner's at night if I need a real hydration boost!

     

    The Supreme Scrub: Josh Rosebrook Enzyme Exfoliator

      This is hands-down the best exfoliator I have ever used.  


      I recommend applying it on damp skin and massaging gently and then leaving it on as a mask for up to 40 minutes.  It is extremely powerful when used in combination with… you guessed it! Vintner's Daughter.


      Fall, Winter, Spring, one thing is certain. Skincare never goes out of style.

      Bree’s Radar: Fall 2017

      As we tumble towards fall, our favourite season of all, I want to share my top picks for what is shaping up to be the most fabulous fashion we’ve seen in years. Don’t let the smokey skies fool you, we’ll all be seeing clearly this September.

       

      The Dynamite Duo are Back in Action

      _
      _
      It’s no longer a full house at Elizabeth & James with the main designers making way for the co-owners of the brand to take the wheel: Mary-Kate and Ashley.
      _
       
      _
      These twinning beauties placed themselves in the driver’s seat by designing this collection which is looking dangerously like The Row (in a good way). Not to mention their fall sampling is accompanied by more reasonable price tags.
      _

      _

      As if you weren’t hooked already, the colour palette is soft and luxurious. We’ll start the cue early for this release!

      _

      Falling Hard for A.L.C.

      _
      All aboard A.L.C.
      _
      Every year there’s just one collection that stops me (and my heels) in their tracks. This year it was hands-down A.L.C. 
      _
      These hips don't lie. 
      _
      They put this collection best themselves: “A collection of elevated staples and luxe statement pieces.” This is what dreams are made of ladies!
      _
      _
      Bree fall into it A.L.C. this September.

      Trend Lightly

      _
      If I could cut through the white noise of trends this fall and just choose two they would be:
      _
      1. Shearling, shearling, shearling, darlings. These coats are an absolute must-have for this season. Reconnect with your inner aviator and prepare for your wardrobe to reach new heights.
        _
        2. Leopard print this season is SPOT-ON. This is a giant trend for fall and it is simply fabulous. Use it as an accent or just jump right in.
        _

          Bree very afraid - Fall is coming.

          Bree's Bare Minimum

          Dear Bree Thinkers,
          -
          Don’t get bogged down with feeling like you’re falling behind the fashion world.
          Every woman’s closet should have a line-up of classics that stand the test of time and trends and just makes them feel damn good about themselves in general.
          -
          Enter, Bree’s Bare Minimum. 3 pieces I’ve hand selected to get you and your closet revved up for whatever adventure awaits you next!
          -

            1. A killer blazer 

            Camilla & Marc's Navy Dimmer blazer. Just structured enough pre-5, just sassy enough post-5.

             

                  ​2. A great pair of skinny jeans... 

            With a twist!

            R13 Kate Skinny. Walk the frayed line between attitude and altitude.

            3. A fabulous coat  ​

             

              Joseph Double Face wool coat. There's a reason they write songs about baby blues.

                Pair them with your white t-shirt, a sequinned top, a pair of fabulous footwear, or nothing at all. That’s the beauty of it - the choice is yours!

                #BreesBareMinimum

                REBECCA BREE: SPRING BREAK EDIT

                Spring Has Sprung!
                Okay, maybe not quite, but we're slowly getting there and we can't deny the fact that Spring Break is just around the corner! Whether you have some sort of tropical destination in mind, or you're staying on the west coast, our newly stocked merchandise screams SPRING... and we're lovin' it.
                From bomber jackets, to bold stripes, to frayed denim and more... we have all your favourite Spring 17' trends in store!
                The only thing that's trouble about this look is the amount of attention you're going to get! This slogan back print bomber jacket is giving us ALL the feels. Scallop Silk Boyfriend Shirt by Jenni Kayne and 'Double Trouble' Roadie Bomber by R13. Shop the look here.
                Slip into something comfortable and spend a day at the beach. We are loving this Mar Ym Sol vacation bag that is guaranteed to hold all of your beach or travel necessities (cough, photo opt moment, cough!). 
                We're seeing a glorious combination here and it includes some of our favourites: Tibi, Ariel Gordon Jewelry, Amber Sceats and R13. Shop the look here
                Bold stripes and satin mules... does it get better? Our Ronny Satin Tie Mule will add a romantic and feminine finish to any outfit and help elevate your look while going from day-to-night.
                Cozy up to something soft for those cool, brisk evenings by the water. You can't go wrong with this adorable R13 polka dot cardigan that pairs perfectly with trousers or a dress. 
                Tie that knot up and let your hair down. Front-tie shirts and shirt dresses are making a big statement this Spring season and we are no exception! Black and white both available.
                'Athleisure Wear' is a real thing and this two piece by The Great reminds us of just that. Comfortable and luxurious... but made for travel and/or casual settings - how could you not? 
                These slouchy ALC Drop Trousers are exactly what you need (on vacation or off). We're always up for a sophisticated, yet relaxed, silhouette.
                Pleats are going nowhere this 2017 as they continue to make bigger and badder statements. Malene Birger's 'Miqiau' Pleated Long Skirt will bring elegance to any outfit - whether you pair it with a plain tee or button-up shirt. Bonus: no need to iron these royal blue pleats!
                TIBI's Crepe Trapeze V-Neck Top is coming in hot...! Vermillion Red - seriously - it's one in a million. 
                We're feeling major Sartorial vibes with this Joseph dress and tee. Talk about minimal chic! 
                Silk + lace will always have our hearts. This dress by Jenni Kayne is the perfect choice for that romantic getaway. Hugging all the right places, you will move with ease and comfort, and feel nothing but soft, luxurious material against your skin. Bon voyage!
                Show off those collar bones in Current Elliot's Embroidery Smocked Tee. Comfortable and feminine, the embroidered cotton will pair nicely with jeans or shorts. 
                Jason Wu has us in (deep-red) love. This perfect concoction of pleats and floral print has us begging for sunshine! Shop the look here
                A modern take on the shirt dress, Wu's Cotton Poplin Dress with Side Detail translates sophistication and comfort in just two words. 
                Spice up your Spring holiday with Michelle Mason's Silk charmeuse Tuxeo Dress. Don't be shy to bring a bit of spice to the table. You (or he) can thank us later!
                Move with ease in Joseph's Flint Silk Drawstring Skirt and a relaxed tee for good measure. We are loving this breezy look. Shoes by Jenni Kayne
                Rhie's 'Ruffle Tee will give you a subtle shine to any casual or dressy outfit. Let these exaggerated, ruffly sleeves be the shining glory in your closet today!
                Rhie's 'Pearl' Ruffle Tee is complimented by our favourite Suede/Leather Clutch by Mezzi and frayed-hem jeans by Mother Denim
                These long pleated trousers are sure to be the focus of any outfit. Sexy and stunning... who said trousers are just for work? Shop them here
                Rhié's 'Lou' Floral Flutter Top is that perfect Winter-to-Spring transitional piece. Dark hues, light fabric and a knife-pleated capelet.... yes please!
                Toga's Ankle Buckle Boot gives us an edgy take on the mid-western feel. There are no limits to how you can wear these, with who or when.  
                This little ensemble by Grey by Jason Wu screams 'fun, flirty and everything in between'. Isn't that what Spring Break is for?
                Love, 
                Rebecca XO


                Love is...


                New York baby.

                REBECCA BREE: HOLIDAY EDIT VOLUME 1

                Christmas and New Years is just around the corner and we want to celebrate. It's time to announce that new jackets, dresses, tops and bottoms are in and they scream HOLIDAY! Get the latest and shop our new arrivals here!

                PS. If you haven't already heard, we're offering 30% off on select Fall pieces in-store and online. Browse a few of our Fall and pre-holiday items below and treat yourself to something sparkly (or not!).  

                The holidays are all about comfort and style. We suggest you cozy up to Tibi's Mockneck Sweater With Silk Tails. To keep it extra sophisticated, suit up with Tibi's Pinstripe Tie Pant (pants included in our 30% off sale!).      
                Add a little bit of Christmas cheer to your wardrobe. This RtA dress proves to us that a little sparkle CAN go a long way! And if you want to bring it down a notch, pair it with our IRO leather jacket for an extra-edgy look. No outfit is complete without our fabulous No. 21 shoes.
                Marilyn ain't got nothin' on our A.L.C Long Pleated Flume skirts! To give this look more shape, make sure you pair it with a fitted crop (like our A.L.C. 'Presley' Top) and a structured jacket, such as our Camilla & Marc double breasted blazer.
                Maximize the concept of "casual-chic" with a Mother denim pullover paired with our Tibi blush skirt. Toss in our snowy-white Roseanna lace sweater (which also happens to be a part of our sale!) and fa-la-la-la-la, your look is complete!
                This is what it feels like to hit the jackpot. Fitted midi skirts are all the rage and there's nothing better than a gold-mustard item or two to give it the accent it needs. Our Camilla & Marc 'Primula' Cami and No. 21 shoes will take you from day to night.... and because RtA is anything but ordinary, so will their Black Serge Cashmere Cardigan. 
                We'll choose Jenni Kayne over Candy Cane any day! Not only will she save you from the toothache, but her Striped Boucle Cashmere sweater will keep you stylish and cozy from the inside out. To help achieve that luxury laid-back look, pair her sweater with R13 Jeans and an Ariel Gordon necklace. How chic!
                Another Jenni Kayne piece for the win! The Mock Neck 'Matt' Silk Dress can be dressed up... or dressed down with Mother Denim and flat booties.
                Chokers are back and in a big way. We love how Derek Lam 10's Sleeveless Dress incorporates the 90's trend in this particular piece. Pair her with an R13 Shrunken Flight Jacket and voila, you're ready to soar!
                Because who says you can't take the sheets to the streets? We've paired our favourite pair of R13 distressed denim with Olivia Von Halle's Silk Stripe Pyjama Top to help achieve an effortlessly chic look. 
                Finally, for the days that you'll be running errands, travelling, or just being cute in general... pair our Tibi Tank (another sale item) with R13 Cropped Handtailored Dress Pants and No. 21 Slip-Ons. Simplicity never looked so good on you.

                Until next time...!
                Rebecca XO
