’s Top 5 Spring Must-Haves

While the weather refuses to acknowledge it, spring is officially here, and’s co-founder and editorial director Michelle Bilodeau is helping us ring it in with her must-have picks for the season — which you can score in her exclusive curated sale and finale event in Gilt Canada’s re-launch celebration. Bilodeau (whose Toronto-based fashion news site is a go-to for thousands of daily readers) describes her style as “timeless/classic,” calls Alexander Wang and Sarah Burton two of her favorite designers, is most inspired by chic French women like Marion Cotillard and Emmanuelle Alt, and confesses that what she really wants for spring, “is to wear shoes with no socks, and to have bare legs!”


Bilodeau’s top spring picks and tips on how to wear them:

· A pajama-style shirt: “I like to be comfortable, but also simple and chic, and I think a PJ-inspired top works well with skinny jeans and pumps, and even loose silk trousers and loafers!” 

· A tuxedo jacket: “I love a good tuxedo-inspired jacket because it makes woman feel powerful, while still remaining sexy and comfortable.”

· A pair of brogues or loafers: “Yes, I love heels, but living downtown in Toronto, I also walk around a lot, so I need comfortable, stylish shoes to complete my daily look. No shoe is more on-trend right now than loafer! And I think they work just as well with skinny jeans as they do a skirt or trousers.”

· A leather jacket: “I always thought that women should literally ‘rock’ their ‘30s, and the only piece that screams rocker-chic to me is the leather jacket!”

· A black leather handbag: “I love leather handbags, and have been wearing a fab orange bag for a while now. Although it really does go with everything, I think it’s time for an update.”

    When Lydia and I met for coffee, I really didn t expect her to keep asking me to be the one to reach out, Alexis writes in a May 29 Bravo Blog. It s frustrating, and I truly don t feel she is putting herself in my nike supplying shoes.
