Who doesn’t adore loose and oversized items? For practical reasons, baggier garbs are comfortable, but they offer a whimsical-meets-hippie vibe that can easily be infused in any wardrobe. The oversized look has been with us for several seasons and is coveted, famously, by the Olsen sisters.
The ideal way to wear something billowing is to pair it with something slimmer at the bottom, whether it be a pencil skirt or skinny jean. This gives balance to the outfit and doesn’t completely hide your figure. On the other hand, designers are often pairing oversized skirts with loose blouses and if you’re daring enough, why not try it? However, I’m sure your fella will be desperate for you to pull out your Herve Leger bandage dresses!
The trend is sticking with us and luckily, The Peacock Parade has plenty of oversized-goodies available to pack your closet with style and comfort!
Last night, all fashion eyes were on New York City as it was host to the 2013 Met Gala. Stylish celebrities, designers, icons, socialites and paparazzi showed up to celebrate what’s often referred to as the “fashion Oscars.” With plenty of eye-popping gowns to leave us all envious, there were a few fashion blunders on the red carpet - Kim Kardashian, I’m looking at you.
This year’s theme was “Punk: From Chaos to Couture.” It’s fitting that Christina Ricci showed up in Vivienne Westwood, as Westwood is the queen of punk-chic. Check out some of our favourite Met Gala 2013 looks. Let us know which one is your favourite.

With so many incredible options available on The Peacock Parade, it made choosing the best of the best pretty tricky. This week designer items from Cynthia Rowley, Paul and Joe Sister and Jill by Jill Stuart were on sale for a fraction of the retail cost. Who doesn’t love designer duds for less? So here is a list of awesome pieces that you really won’t be able to do without…and they’re summer-ready, too.
The ideal summer dress – lightweight fabric meets darling pink – and it can easily be worn from day to evening.
Summer is coming and although it can get mighty hot during the day, the evenings can be quite cool. This is a great option to keep your arms warm on a summer evening stroll.
A saucy evening dress is essential for summer-time. There will be plenty of party invitations in the mail so it’s better to have something fabulous ready.
A high-fashion sandal (especially one that it Missoni-inspired) is a must.
The ultimate must-have – a classic layering tank in a neutral shade. Not only is it perfect as is, you can top with a vest, cardigan or jacket and transform your look.
Designer Nicole Miller received the 2013 Spirit of Design Award from Philadelphia University at their annual fashion show. The fashion power-house accepted the award this past weekend and was delighted to be honoured by this prestigious award. The designer’s eponymous collections range from ready-to-wear, to evening wear, to perfume and even bedding. Her keen sense of fashion and business is what sets her apart from other designers.
Celebrities like Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie and Cate Blanchett have all be seen wearing her clothing. And with each new collection she produces her work gets better and better. She makes sure to flatter a woman’s figure and make her look and feel spectacular in her clothes.
Known for her use of print and high-end textiles, Miller has made sure to keep herself relevant over her extensive career in fashion. At any given time, you can spot her items in glossy magazines and online blogs…like this one! So a huge congratulations goes out to Nicole Miller.
