Originally written for SWAGGER – check them out here! Palm Springs our happy place. If you’ve ever been, you know that the moment you step off the plane and into the open-concept terminal, the desert air immediately calms you. We have been visiting Palm Springs together for over a decade, loving it not only as a mid-century design mecca, but also a place where relaxation is taken seriously. One of the most idyllic spots to visit in “Palm” is the must-see Parker Palm Springs. The glorious boutique hotel, formerly Merv
Fall really is like the new year, and if you’re like us, it’s the time of year when you’re ready to get into new routines, set new goals and UP YOUR GAME! Whether it’s your home decor, grooming, fashion, or even your intellectual game, we have ides on how to finish off 2016 in style. We visited four cities this Fall: Edmonton, Vancouver, Calgary and Ottawa to show off items from our friends at HomeSense, Philips, Kobo, and Dockers. HomeSense – this year, HomeSense launched their Privé event, giving shoppers
In the past, we’ve explored the gift ideas that appeal to all kinds of dads, ones who dress up, enjoy fine wine or scotch, travel, and splurge on grooming products. This year, we’re giving our ideas for the other 2/3s of dads out there – the guys who prefer to be in the yard, get the guys over and BBQ. Don’t be confused, these are still Style Dads but these guys are more comfortable in the yard than they are at a martini bar. Here are clips from our recent press
It’s Juno’s weekend and everyone is planning their weekend music lineup, and hopefully their wardrobe. We Canucks love to show our Juno pride but we want to suggest that this weekend we evolve our Canadiana for a new, modern look. The Canadian Tuxedo We’re not going fishing people, update your denim-on-denim-on-denim for coloured jeans, mismatched washes and one of this spring’s hottest looks – lightweight denim. And always break it up with accessories. Plaid This one is actually pretty on-trend but it is a style that has become more hipster
The Oscars are this Sunday and while we haven’t seen all (or hardly any) of the movies nominated, we are well prepped for the red carpet. Whether the fashion is on point or not, we love to see who is wearing what. It’s always interesting for us to see who takes a chance, who nails it and who takes a big bite of the red carpet. Here are a few of our faves from the last couple years (it was tough to narrow down) and who we are excited to see this year: Excited
Although last night’s Grammys were a bit of a miss for us, we did enjoy the red carpet (as always) and want to share our best dressed of the evening. Overall, there were several casual looks, some business suit realness and the odd outrageous look (mostly too out there for us to mention). We are all about expressing personal style, but pyjama pants and Hello Kitty do not belong on the red carpet. Here are top picks for Best Dressed: Carrie Underwood (Photo: Larry Busacca) Giving us sexy and elegant, this
The Groundhog stuck its head out this week and (in Calgary anyways) he didn’t see his shadow, so that means and early Spring! We already know that this has not been the harshest of winters and I think many of us are already itching to put away our winter garb and get on with Spring clothes. But don’t get too carried away – it’s not time quite yet. Before you pull out your linens and open-toed shoes we want to suggest a transition period; one that will keep you warm

It’s back to school time and for those of you that are heading to post secondary or somewhere abroad, you will most likely be staying in a dorm. Now most dorms come with a bed, night stand and that is pretty much it. Now, remember you will be spending a lot of time (studying of course) in these spaces, so make sure you are adding some personality to these spaces. How do you do this, you ask? Well, we are here to help. Check out the video below and our list
