MICHI is an edgy, modern, active wear collection that offers a much-desired alternative to the typical Lululemon ensemble. The pieces are a perfect blend of function, mixed with an exciting provocative undertone. I bought a few items, and find the cuts to be super flattering and amazingly comfortable. I also snagged the arm warmers, which I have been sporting just about everyday. The collection was founded in New York, but the Canadian designer is now Toronto based. You can learn more about MICHI and how to buy it here.

Spring stripes.

Not sure if I'll ever tire of stripes. I'm digging this entire look from the hat to the hole in the jeans. Great spring transition ensemble.

Balmain backstage.

This is one of my favorite shots from the f/w 2011 shows. Every time I look at this dress I am awestruck by how gorgeous it is. The detailing is remarkable and the cut is the perfect balance of relaxed and sexy.

J.Crew March.

Although it is snowing today, I'm determined to maintain my excitement over the arrival of spring. 
J.Crew's March lookbook is helping. I'm loving the over loaded arm candy, and the heavy jewelry over the trench is a great idea. The colorful tweed detailing on the khaki jacket is fantastic and wonderfully unexpected. I think the white perforated leather dress is my favorite item, I love the sporty techno feel.

Soft rock.

I love how rock 'n' roll these looks are yet they still have a softness to them. The relaxed thin tee and comfy hoodie work so well against the leather jackets. Her blonde hair is killer in these shots, and it's the perfect offset to the black.

Letter sweater.

I wasn't too sure about the resurgence of the letter jacket but I'm definitely digging the letter sweater. It is a more subtle statement than the jacket and I like it's softer look.  I would flip out if I found one with an S.

Pyjama party.

Could these clothes look any more comfortable? I don't know if I want to crawl into bed or onto a beach. The neutrals are divine and they soften the chaotic mix of stripes and textures perfectly. I'm also loving the neon toe and nail polish, it's a great accent to the color palette.

I love this girl's haircut. It's a good solution for the painful hair grow out situation I'm currently in.  The all black, edgier ensemble is also the perfect offset to the cuteness of the bob.

March Zara.

Zara's lookbooks always have me running to the door to find the nearest store, this one is no exception. I'm loving the minimalist designs and bold color blocking. They have more colorful blazers in right now, I'm torn between a red or pink one. Yes, I literally did run to the nearest Zara yesterday.

I love the contrast of the bright colors set against the crisp white, it is such a sharp, fresh look. The sunglasses remind me of a pair of Oakleys I used to wear in junior high, which of course I now wish I still owned. If you're digging those killer electric shades as much as I am you can find them here.

K9 sweater.

It's hard not to love the campiness of this sweater. A fun item like this could help me survive the last few painful weeks of winter.

Casual wide leg.

There have been lots of wide leg shots floating around but this one hit the mark for me.  I'm really digging the boyish charm of the blazer, dress shirt and fit of the jeans.  That loose style is exactly what I've been trying to find, super cool and casual.

I love the richness of this editorial. The pieces remind me of the incredible array of colors you often see used in graffiti. Spring can't come soon enough.
