Get Ready for Winter with Clothing for Women at Marks

Although many of us might be in two minds about winter, I think being prepared for it is important. The T-Max Maximum thermal insulation gloves provides maximum warm without the bulk. I like that these gloves are durable, lightweight, and provide comfortable warmth. Since it uses hypoallergenic material and is easy to care because it can be washed and dried, I think this pair of gloves is an excellent choice for cooler weather.

Image from pinkblush maternity
I like the beautiful trendy maternity clothes Pinkblush maternity has. I chose to check out the cardigan from their collection of maternity clothes. I am impressed by the way it looks, and this cardigan would be perfect to wear during any season to dress up or down. Since the cardigan is made with a blend of polyester, rayon and spandex it is very soft and comfy.

Beautiful women's clothing from eShakti

eShakti makes beautiful women's clothing such as dresses, tops and skirts.  These clothes can only be purchased online and is made to suit our personal preferred style and size.
I find it easy to use this online tailor/ dressmaker to order the clothing we like.  The dressmaker ensures that the clothes fit us beautifully, according to the measurements we choose online.  I like the zoom feature on their site that allows us to take a closer look at the details of the clothes.

We can change the dresses to fit our own style and preference such as adjusting the length of the sleeves and necklines with no extra charge.  I liked the quality of the material and the detailed, neat stitching on their clothing.

There are lots of choices on their site, which changes at least twice a week; so if you see something you like make your pick soon.  Check out eShakti on Facebook and twitter as they have many other promotions and lots of styles just in time for spring.

Redesigned Old Navy store at the Toronto Eaton Centre

Women's section
We were invited to check out the newly remodeled Old Navy Store at the Toronto Eaton Centre.  The store was brightly redesigned.  The layout made it easy for us to look and shop for things we want and need :)  
Men's section
I liked how the store was spaciously and neatly divided into women, girls, boys, men and baby wear.  There also had an expanded maternity assortment section.  
Maternity and toddler baby section
I was really attracted to the fashionable collection of costume jewelry at the Old Navy store.
Fashion jewelry
I think this redesign is productive because we can find things easily and shop without waiting to ask for assistance.  Having the products easy to browse is helpful when shopping with young children and especially when we are limited with time.  
Shoes for all different seasons

The fitting rooms and the cashiers are in the center of the store, which is convenient and a good meeting place when shopping with friends and family members :)  Old Navy has "pop in" rooms, which is a thoughtful part of the design as we can quickly try the clothes on our children before buying it and don't have to wait for a fitting room to become available. 
Children's section
They also have an interactive play space for the little ones.  At the event my children spent time in this area colouring, which kept them happy and busy. 
My children were making sure to colour inside the lines for a contest
The new signage in the store is clear and lets us know when there are promotions, values and other things happening at the store.  Old Navy has everything from clothes to accessories for the entire family, which makes it easy for us to shop throughout the year.

Holy clothing: Long flowing top blouse

This Bohemian chic Melodie blouse from Holy clothing is beautiful, comfortable and soft.  This top comes up to my thigh and it can be worn with pants or skirts.  The top is made with 100% viscose rayon material, which is cuddly soft :)  I am happy that the material is not see-through, which is very hard to find these days.  

The embroidery on this burgundy or ruby red shirt is beautifully detailed.  The front of the shirt has full length matching buttons and the back has a ribbon to tie the blouse tight or loose as we wish.  The stitching is professionally done in India.  This top is airy and beautiful to wear for any occasion. 

Although the garments are pre-washed it is advised we wash it before wearing.  The shirt can be easily machine washed in cold water under delicate cycle or hand washed.  It is better to hang dry to maintain the hand-dyed vibrant colour.  This melodie top is available in black, brown, burgundy, purple and green.

I like the beautiful choices of handmade garments on their site. The choice of tops, dresses, skirts, and pants are unique.  These feminine clothes are available from small size to 5X.  I was happy to see the range of long sleeved clothing that is available :)  I found it easy to surf the site and find clothes that suits my taste; actually found a few that I really like :) The clothes are shipped worldwide. They ship it the next day we order it.

eShakti: Online personal dressmaker

eShakti is like our own personal tailor/ dressmaker online, how cool and convenient is that.  eShakti makes custom clothing according to the customer's personal preferred style and size.   We can change  the dress to fit our own style and preference of sleeve, necklines and length.  
There are lots of choices on the site, which is changed at least twice a week; so if you see something you like make your pick soon.  

The clothing is made in India and posted from there.  The dressmaker ensures that it fits us in a flattering manner according to the measurements we choose.  I like that we can modify the size and preferred style.  I liked the material, lining and the neat stitching on this dress.  The clothes had labels identifying the company eShakti, the size of the dress and how to care for it.  The side zip is helpful to remove and put the dress, as this dress is put over the head.  It would be nice if they include a few different prints of material for us to choose from.

To better their service and help us make a good choice, I would like if eShakti has real people wearing the clothing on their images.  This will help us know how it will fit on us.  It is hard to imagine how the dress will look with the types of pictures they have.  

I chose this wildflower cowl dress in my size and style.  Initially, I didn't like it as much as I liked it when I ordered it online.  I didn't realize that this dress I chose had a split that started from the waist, if I had known this by looking at the images, I wouldn't have chosen it.  The brief description on the site isn't very helpful to make choices.
I would have also liked if the cowl on the dress is more prominent on me just like how the picture looks.  I will have to do some minor adjustments has I don't like the darts on the back of the dress.

Once we place the order, after a few days we will get an email with the tracking number of the product.  After I ordered the product, it came within two weeks.  eShakti has a return policy that can be sent to a location in the USA.  As I am in Canada, returns could be a hassle with expensive postage fees.  However those in USA would find it favourable.

This is definitely a unique online service that makes beautiful women's clothing such as dresses, blouses, pants and skirts.  They also have beautiful accessories to go with the clothes.  If I were to choose another product from eShakti I would make a wiser choice :)

I tried this fashion lycra headband.  It is very comfortable and soft.  Wearing the headbands for a long period of time doesn't irritate.  It stretches to fit the head of the person wearing. It is easy to care for it just hand wash and hang dry. Don't use fabric softener on their products.
The wicking hats can be washed by machine and dried in a dryer. All the products are made in USA.
I tried this fashion lycra headband.  My daughter and I, both like wearing this headband.  She loves wearing it all the time and so do I, we might have to get a few :)  They have a wide selection with many vibrant colours, patterns and plain ones.  We can wear the wide band by leaving it open, rolling them up or folding them in half.  So it can be worn a few different ways to suit the person's preference, style and outfit.

Mark's work wearhouse Denver Hayes

Mark's work wearhouse, a Canadian clothing company that carries both men and women clothing and accessories from a variety of exclusive brands. Here is a review of two Denver Hayes products from the Mark's work wearhouse spring collection.
This perfectly pressed 3/4 sleeve fitted dress shirt is very classy. It can be worn for any occasion from business meetings to everyday casual wear. The fabric used for the shirt is breathable cotton that doesn't sweat. The olefin based stretch fiber retains the shirt's shape and recovers after wear. It is wrinkle free therefore no need to iron. It is an easy care shirt that can be machine washed and dried; the shirt stays crisp even after many washes. The neatly stitched feminine shirt has no puckering seams and as a tailored fit.

The sleeves can be either folded or kept down. There is lovely detailed design on the fabric when looked closer. It is available in sizes S-2XL and comes in black, white, lake blue and rosebud pink.

This Hyper-dri® HD1 is a beautiful, soft, comfortable trench coat. It would be perfect for this unpredictable spring weather. The coat comes in black, sage green, sesame brown and hollyhock pink which is available from S-2XL. It is a water repellent breathable jacket. The length of this trench coat is up to mid-thigh. I like the big buttons they have used on the coat; the buttons aren't visible because of the flap which also gives extra cover during windy days. There is detailed stitching in many areas of the coat. The lining cloth for the inside of the coat is soft and beautiful. There are two pockets outside and one inside which is very handy. This is a fabulous trench coat, which goes well with a variety of scarves.

I love the choice of colours and designs that are available at Mark's work wearhouse, which we can buy online or from the store. The quality of the clothing is worth investing on. It will also be enjoyed as gifts i.e. with mother's day coming soon :) do check it out.

Stylish hat: Fit to flick

Fit to flick is a cute hat that allows the ponytail, braid or bun to come through the stitched slit in the hat. It is a fashionable, functional hat that is comfortable. The hat keeps the ears warm and air will not go into the head. We can wear the hairball, which will not come out when the hat is removed.
The difference between Fit to flick and the traditional hat is that when traditional hats are removed it makes the hair look messy and often leaves a bend by the nape. Check out the variety of hats that is available and order it online. Girls and ladies will definitely want to wear this stylish hat :)
