Who’s That Girl? Kim vs. Rachel

Every week Amil Niazi styles the Robber mannequins and then takes you on a sartorial spirit quest, finding the stories buried in the silk and wool. Each week, check out her modern fairytales and then vote for your favourite!

It’s so weird that Kim’s family keeps asking her why she’s single because hello, as if she even cares about society’s notion of what a woman should or shouldn’t be. Do you really think someone who mixes prints so boldly and with such abandon is concerned about conforming to our western culture’s patriarchal view of romance? Kim isn’t trying to have it all, she’s just trying to get by with a little bit of dignity, a few less split ends and a lot of style. So pass the gravy and mind your own business Aunt Louise!

Show your family who’s Kim in this Olga blouse by Minimarket ($255), Karen Walker shirred waist skirt ($249 $189), and Cursive Design color theory necklace ($70).

Look at this cozy bitch! You know when your Grandma forces you to wear a”nice” dress cause it’s the holidays but you don’t even really like Christmas so you try and find something comfortable AND appropriate but it’s all so itchy and wool and hot and you’re like, GET ME OUT OF HERE! But then you remember that silky something in your closet and then you see your favourite sweater peeking out of a drawer and pow! next thing you know you’re sliding across the wood floors in your socks with your sisters, belly full of treats like it was 1999. That’s just how Rachel always rolls!

Rip off Rachel’s easy steeze with this Dunderdon lambswool striped sweater ($189 $145), Karen Walker frills & spills dress ($399 $299), and Maude & Colette sterling silver love knot necklace ($99).

Holiday Wishlists: Robin’s picks

Yesterday, I got the biggest poinsettia ever at work – like, EVER – and I thought maybe it was from a secret admirer. It wasn’t. I was disappointed for a minute but then I realized I still had time to let you know what I really want! So, Secret Admirer(s), this one’s for you!

Let’s not play games. You can show me how much you care by showing up at my place with this MHL toggle overcoat – it’s classic and super cozy (like our relationship?). Maybe put two tickets to somewhere in New England in the pocket?

MHL Toggle Overcoat, $675 $510

Two tickets to Vermont and this Steven Alan Cashmere Striped Sweater –  you really get me! Cause that’s where you’re from – oh, and your whole family will be there.  Um, ok. But there will be mulled wine, right?

Steven Alan Cashmere Striped Sweater, $275 $209

Oh, we’re going out for dinner? To the country club? With your parents? No problem, I didn’t need any advance notice because I’m already wearing that Filippa K Tailored Dress you bought me for Christmas. It’s fine. I said it’s fine.

Filippa K Tailored Dress, $269

Chocolates say “I love you”, OLO Cedar and Rose Perfume says “I’m sorry”? I told you I’m fine. Look, I’m not sure this is working out, but I’m going to keep the perfume, ok?

OLO Cedar and Rose, $45

This tiny box is FOR ME? Aren’t we moving a LITTLE FAST? I mean, that whole thing with your parents… well, let’s not talk about it. Just open it? Well.. ok… I guess…. Oh, Species by the Thousands Rock Stud Earrings! THANKYOUILOVETHEM!!!

Species by the Thousands Rock Stud Earrings, $99

That wasn’t so hard, was it? I’ve laid it all out for you, so no more poinsettas! Oh, Secret Admirer(s), I do look forward to our holiday journey together.
