Learn all about the 'Mad Hatter' with Carly Yack!

Mad Hatter
This summer is all about finding the perfect hat. The recent royal wedding has helped to push this trend to the forefront. Those Brits definitely know how to make a statement with headwear. This season showcases hats in a variety of shapes, sizes, styles and colour. Choosing which one to make your signature look is difficult for even the most fashion savvy girl. Here are a few hat trends to play with:

Our Guest Blogger Heidi Hofstad shares her tips for 'Pool Party Glam!'

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there...especially when it comes to my latest mantra – pool party glam. Adopt it, embrace it, and take it to a beach or swim session near you…no passport required.
Ladies who splash Sincity-style don’t leave the room without a swimsuit that can hold its own, a barely there cover-up, a great pair of wedges, and full accessories.

Time to Expose your Toes with Guest Blogger Sunny Shum!

It's that time to expose your toes and there are four key shoe trends you must have for Spring/Summer 2011: Espadrille wedges, barely there goddess sandals, flats with floral details and t-strap platforms.
The wedge sandal is a must have shoes this summer and the espadrille wrap is the freshest way to wear it. Jute wraps and trims are usually more prominent in tropical weather markets however this trend has increasingly become more widely excepted world wide.

Style Expert Catherine Dunwoody talks 'Shades of Summer'!

Shades of Summer
I’ve taken to wearing dark sunglasses even on cloudy days, in hopes to ‘will’ the sun to come out and stay put this summer. Whatever it takes. Forgive me if I step on your freshly pedicured toes – but I can’t see them, or you, for that matter – and desperate times call for desperate measures. That retro Sunbeam sun lamp I spotted at a recent yard sale was lookin’ pretty good to me…..see what vitamin D depravation will do?

Skirting the Issue with guest blogger Carly Yackimec

One of the things I love most about summer fashion this season is the amazing variety of skirts available. From barely there minis to long flowing maxis and every length in between, there is something to make every fashion savvy girl fall in love. This is a great time to start experimenting with your style and embrace some of the major trends this season. Take advantage of the wide array of skirts available and learn what works for you and what doesn’t. Some great looks to try on this season are:

Today's colourful entry by Heidi Hofstad - ORANGE KNOCKOUT!

Swooning over tangerine since a recent trip to Palm Springs – where everything from funky décor, to bedazzled sandals, to cocktails are inspired by the modern hue – my official summer (colour) lovin' is in full swing.
Test-drive by juicing up neutral looks with splashy accessories. A bag, statement pumps, vintage Lucite bangles, or even a swipe of nail polish (Orange Knockout by China Glaze is a-may-zing) will all do the trick. 

Check out the first entry from guest blogger Rebecca Tay - Juicy Colours

Forget the weather. Who needs sunny skies when your wardrobe can have pops, squirts and bursts of juicy colour (which, yes, make me want to inject my every sentence with onomatopoeia!)? Arguably the biggest trend this season, brights like orange, pink, cobalt blue, emerald, and yellow made appearances on nearly every runway—no surprise, then, that it’s the trend that’s helped me survive this gloomy spring.

Guest Blogger Partly Sunny tells us all about dropping hemlines!

The skirt is probably the single most important item trend for Summer 2011. Hemlines have dropped and there’s something about this vintage look that makes an impact for anyone who wears it. 70‘s nostalgia is in the air and now sexy is all about below the knee - either a-line, boho, or slim,  the look is feminine, whimsical and romantic. Here are some easy looks I’ve picked out to help round out your summer wardrobe:
