We all have favourite celebrity style icons that we try our best to emulate with our own wardrobes. Unfortunately we can’t always afford the Marchesa gown or Louboutin shoes that celebrities wear, but we can find the next best thing in our price range. It’s all about dressing like a star but not paying like one. Check out some awesome items adorned by the stars that have a similar match available on The Peacock Parade…and at a fabulous price, I might add.
If you happen to be in the great city of Toronto today, you know that it’s crazy hot. Other cities and towns across Canada are feeling the pleasant but pre-mature heat wave so it’s time to leave the jackets at home and start dressing for the summer. On hot and humid days the last thing you want to do is over-dress. Focus on light and easy clothing that will keep you looking and feeling cool. Keep checking The Peacock Parade for awesome sales that will make your summer wardrobe easy!
Opt for open footwear like sandals or slingbacks .
Choose breathable fabrics like cotton and linen for tops, dresses or pants.
Wear a great pair of shades to block out the beating sun.
Put on something loose fitting and airy.
If you’re going to be in the sun for a long period of time, don’t forget to put on sunscreen!
As we all know, fashion moves at a rapid pace. Just when you started buying summer dresses, designers were showing their fall 2012 collections and now they’re giving us a little taste of next spring. Chanel, Oscar de la Renta and Bottega Veneta have all unveiled their Resort 2013 collections.
All three collections offered ultra feminine and ladylike apparel that anyone would love to wear on a Mediterranean cruise. Soft pastel shades and calm floral patterns, with splashes of graphic prints were common themes throughout.
A-line and full skirts hitting the knee and fitted bodices are reminiscent of the late 1940s and 1950s. Come next spring, it’s all about being a lady.

On Monday, Gucci finally won their copyright infringement case against Guess. Back in 2009, Gucci filed a claim that Guess had copied their signature features – squared “Gs”, diamond logos and red and green stripes. Guess had denied the claim only admitting that they were “inspired” by Gucci’s brand.
Gucci was asking for approximately $220 million USD but was only awarded $4.7 million USD. Although Gucci didn’t get as much as they were hoping for, the Manhattan Federal Court banned Guess from using any of these trademarks. It looks like Guess CEO, Paul Marciano has to hire new accessories designers to come up with a look of their own. I’ve always liked the upside down triangle with the question mark, if that helps.
