aritzia, aritzia, ARITZIA!

Are you ready for some great deals fashion lovers? Aritzia is having it's annual summer sale, from now until the 30th of June. Come in to get amazing deals, like the Mackage jackets that have been marked down $100 and the tanks which are all very cheap! Most all all, make sure to come in and visit me! I just started at Aritzia a few weeks ago and I'd love to see a few friendly faces!

Check out below for my fashion wish list from Aritzia!

I'm dying a for a linen boyfriend blazer! I already have one in white but I'd love to get one in black or even navy! They look so amazing with dresses and jeans, even shorts!

TOMS are the most amazing shoes, so comfy and because of the material you can just throw them in the washing machine when they're dirty. The best part is for every pair of TOMS shoes bought, a pair are given to a child in Africa who needs shoes. Get your TOMS at Aritzia fast, they're a big seller and they're on sale!

The Wilfred bustier's are so versatile and come in a million colours and prints! I really want a tooth paste coloured one to wear with a pair of shorts and a bow belt!

Finally the last thing on my wish list and also on sale is a white Marc Jacobs bag! Buttery leather and oh so enviable, I've been dying for a bag like this!

Anyone a big tennis fan? I like tennis quite a bit, but I like the style involved much more. I've been watching the William sisters quite close throughout this season as Venus is set to debut a new tennis wear line and she has been giving us sneak peaks at various games. First there was the notorious black lace dress she chose to wear against Cibulkolva which was a mix of cancan and burlesque. Reviews on the dress were mixed, some decrying it, others praising her boldness. More than anything else critics were discussing what she was wearing under the skirt, nude underwear that gave the illusion of no underwear at all. The nude underwear has caused quite a controversy, some saying it should be banned, others finding it playful.

Venus' latest outfit is a bit more tame, white and a little frilly apparently inspired by Tina Turner. A complete 180 from her last raunchy outfit of red and black, the look is a little flapper and a little athletic.

Personally, these nontraditional outfits and nude underwear are fashion I can do without in my tennis matches. I prefer the smartly dressed Roddick in Lacoste, Sharapova in crisply pleated white skirts with matching underwear. I do remember though that even Rene Lacoste in his own time was considered innovative and ground breaking, the tennis skirt in particular is a fashion landmark pioneered by Lacoste. So thanks to Lacoste and all others who have made tennis the fashionable sport it is today. And to Venus? Thanks for keeping things fresh.
