Oh Coco!

How amazing are these images from Coco Rocha's new jewellery line benefiting human trafficking victims in Cambodia. The Vancouver native enlisted her supermodel friends to help her with the campaign and if we can say so the results are amazing. We love seeing Canadians doing so great and leading by example on the world stage and especially in the fashion industry. Kudos to Coco!

From Style.com: 'Coco Rocha essentially took this season off in terms of the runway, walking exclusively for Zac Posen in New York and Giorgio Armani in Milan. But Rocha was far from out of service during fashion month. She’s been hard at work putting the final touches on her forthcoming documentary Letters to Haiti (making its New York City debut next month at Milk Studios) and crafting a line of jewelry for Senhoa, due out tomorrow on Senhoa.org. The collection ($65 to $995), which benefits victims of human trafficking in Cambodia by giving them job opportunities, is all handcrafted by a survivor of exploitation. “Once I heard the extent of the problem with human trafficking in Cambodia I knew I had to help,” Rocha told Style.com.

To show off her range of gunmetal and Swarovski necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, Rocha enlisted pal Behati Prinsloo to model alongside her in a new cinemagraph campaign by Jamie Beck, debuting exclusively here on Style.com. (For her print campaign, she also brought her friends into the picture—Iman and Caroline Trentini both appear with her in the Nigel Barker-lensed photos.)“I first met Behati at a Louis Vuitton after-party in 2006 and we were instant friends,” Rocha says. “We feel like we went to model high school together so it’s always like a happy reunion when we get together.”

Happy Halloween!

Today is official halloween, even though we have seen numerous Karl Lagerfelds over the weekend the trick or treaters have yet to crowd the streets tonight. We thought we would share some amazing images from a Halloween inspired photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar directed by Tim Burton and photographed by Tim Walker. You really know images make an impression when you can revisit them two years after publication. Image Source: FashionGoneRogue.com

Autumn Orange

Jackets are one of my favorites parts of my wardrobe.  For me, a great coat is the finishing touch to any outfit. This coat came in a few different neutral colours but the orange caught my eye. When fall hits I can’t get enough of orange, burgundy and army green. I decided to let the coat be the statement piece of this outfit, and kept the rest of the pieces subtle with black and white pattern mixing.
What would you wear with this coat?

For those fashion obsessed

Even though the mysterioius Conde Nast elevator spy has ceased his undercover operation (by the looks of it anyway) it still makes for a hilarious read. For those of you who have not seen this twitter feed yet check it out.
*For those unfamilar with Conde Nast just think Vogue and GQ and you will soon think of the biggest publishing house in the United States. Devil wears Prada anyone? Who wouldn't want to hear what is going on behind those closed doors*

Spaces we love: Rachel Zoe

We love Rachel Zoe and are absolutely inspired by her LA studio space. If you ever watched The Rachel Zoe Project you will recognize these photos, what an amazing opportunity to peek into the life of a stylist to the stars. What wouldn't we do for a shoe collection like that. It's BANANAS!

Lions Lace Lattes: Cashmere Leopard

Hello! I’m Ashley, and I write for the blog, Lions Lace Lattes. I am so excited to be guest posting for Bellissima for October and November. Bellissima has always been the go to store for the perfect party dress, but after seeing the edgy, rocker outfits created by Jennie Lyle at Alberta Fashion Week, I realized that Bellissima has a lot more to offer than graduation and Christmas party attire. I was so inspired by the looks from fashion week in March, when I was asked to create outfits for the Bellissima blog, I jumped at the chance.  
Sweaters are an autumn essential, and perfect for those transitional fall days where the afternoons are warmer, but the evenings are cooling off. I noticed this light-weight cashmere sweater at Bellissima right away, and knew I had to wear it. I love the soft, fuzzy texture... and the leopard - need I say more. I decided to pair it with a leather skirt, black pumps, a yellow belt to pull out the colour in the sweater, and a jean jacket to dress the look down. 
How would you wear this sweater?

Liselotte Watkins: Illustrator

A model I follow featured this illustrator on her blog. Ever since Liselotte Watkins has been one of my top inspirations. Her drawings make great art for inside the house. I have printed numerous illustrations and placed them framed around the house. Easy decor idea and so stylish at the same time. Check out her blog at http://liselottewatkins.blogspot.com/ for more amazing images. She is doing a series where she illustrates the key looks from this show season. She also does some amazing work for magazines and brands around the world, if you are interested to see some of her other work visit http://www.art-dept.com/illustration/watkins/.
