Joe & Tell

If there’s one trend that seems to come back each Fall and Winter, it’s plaid. But plaid has a cousin and that cousin is buffalo check!  What’s not to love about either pattern when it shows so well in red and black?

So, here is my version of the classic show and tell using the items from Joe Fresh (Superstore or Loblaws).  They are completed stocked full with options (let’s call it updated plaid) and here is what I found in store last week:

These adorable slip on booties/slippers for babies and toddlers.  How cute!

 

This dress would look great with black tights or leggings and booties, wouldn’t it?

 

And if you didn’t wan to wear red and black plaid, you could carry it!

 

This bomber style jacket would be a fun way to add a little colour and style while keeping warm.

 

Lastly, these duck boots were under $50 and were very warm and comfortable.  I probably wouldn’t wear them in the rain, but they would be great for cold weather.

I have to admit I didn’t buy a thing!  But I could always go back for that tote and maybe the dress…and….more!

New Year, New Clothes

The kids are back in school, I’ve semi-cleaned the house and needed groceries, so I headed to Superstore (Loblaws for those of you back East).  Problem is, that when you go to Superstore, you see Joe Fresh fashions right when you walk in the door.

Now, I don’t always buy from Joe Fresh, but I have been known to pick up the odd top, sweater, tank at a very good price point.  It isn’t always the best or will be a piece that you have for a long time, but Joe Fresh is usually  always on point for fashion trends and colours.

I have to admit I was surprised that the store was already full of fresh fashions for late Winter/early Spring.

Here’s a little peek at what I saw:

These shoes were under $20.  I tried them on.  They were not uncomfortable and would be a cute little flat to add a little camo to your day.

 

This top is part sweater, part sweatshirt.  I tried it on and it fit a little unconstructed which seems to be in style right now.  It was only $9.94 and in one of my fav colours…grey!

 

Ok, so if you don’t like grey, this red and black in the classic buffalo check would do nicely. I’m thinking it would be cute for the holiday season 2016.

 

 

Umm…these pants.  Part jogger, part sweatpants wanna be.  Either way, they were comfy and so well priced.  Picture them with a black of white top, a cute hoodie and fun runners (tennis shoes for you South of the border).

 

Bathings suits are here!!  Mix and match tops and bottoms while they still have your size.  All pieces around $20.

 

In case you don’t like the turquoise blue, there is navy and orange just around the corner.  Again, easy to wear and mix and match.

 

I saw orange and navy from the minute I hit this section.  Based on this, I’m guessing orange is a must have colour for Spring.

 

Softer shades of orange, floral and pink/peach all say Spring to me.

 

Before Winter is over, you might want to grab a pair of these Sorel look alike boots.  Reg $69 on sale for $59 and some styles were less.  I tried them on and they fit well!

 

Not a fashion item, but still a new item to me.  Natural soap made in Canada for only $1.25 per bar.  If you are trying to add more natural products to your daily regime, try this soap in one of the many flavours.

 

 

I am feeling a little more inspired with my wardrobe now and I’m looking forward to the sales and Spring fashions to come over the next month!
