Hope Hearts: Chill Chasers by Stanfield’s

It’s a very rare occasion when I shop at Walmart; in fact, some would say that seeing me wandering around Walmart is like seeing a unicorn — it like, almost never happens.

That being said, I’m the first to admit when I find a product I love, and it just so happens that this one is found at Walmart.

It was December 2010 when my Mum gifted me my first pair of Chill Chasers® by Stanfield’s®, and I still wear them to this day. Since then, I’ve got an additional pair of these delightful PJs, and I recommend the affordable brand to everyone (yes, everyone. Chill Chasers® are available for both women and men).

Chill Chasers® are the best PJs I’ve ever owned. Coming from Canada, where our winters can dip waaay below comfort levels, it’s difficult to find a pair of pajamas that really keeps you warm and toasty at night. Chill Chasers® by Stanfield’s® do just that, without all the bulk.

Made from an even blend of 50% cotton/50% polyester, these PJs have two layers of fabric to keep you warm. They feature flatlock seams for extra comfort. The bottoms are fantastic, with a self-covered elastic waist, and rib knit cuffs around the ankles (so that the legs don’t ride up).

Available in sizes small through 2X, Chill Chasers® are affordably priced starting at $9.99.

Another cool thing about my favourite pajamas? They’re made in Canada! Stanfield’s® is a Canadian company, based out of Nova Scotia.

Hope Hearts: Grey Tights for Fall

I know, it’s terrible; we’ve hardly even touched September, and yours truly is already dreaming of dull Fall days filled with ominous skies and rolling dark clouds. I just can’t help myself.

It’s especially a difficult task not to wish cool temperatures and brisk winds when you see J.Crew’s fabulous selection of tights for Fall 2010. That exquisite made in Italy quality, and all their delightful motifs for this autumn season — I’m stocking up now and you should, too!

One thing I absolutely love about the accessories lineup at J.Crew — as if there’s only one, ha! — is the pricing. J.Crew tights cost, on average, about $24. Think even that’s expensive? Consider this: One pair of tights from a big brand name like Falke or Wolford will run you about $120. Reality check, people. The Every Girl isn’t about to spend that much cash on an item she might get three to four wears out of in one season. It’s just not realistic. And so, I present to you my top 3 pairs of J.Crew tights in the basic but beautiful grey (designer colour: Heather carbon).

First, we’ve got classic, no frills, wear-with-everything, super stretchy tights. They fit perfect and won’t misshape. Then, there are these J.Crew herringbone tights in heather carbon. I love how even such a subtle texture will add depth to any ensemble. Finally, leg-lengthening long ribbing makes these J.Crew wool-blend tights a worthy wardrobe accoutrement. The urban grey colour is a definite must, and I’m picking up these gems in dark charcoal, too. You can’t go wrong with ribbing, and when you’re wearing shorts or a mini skirt, these tights will add instant height to your frame.

Heather Carbon Tights, $24.50, J.Crew

Herringbone Tights, $22.50, J.Crew

Wool-blend Ribbed Tights, $26.50, J.Crew

Trend-Spotting: Patterned Tights

April is one of those months where weather can be unpredictable. Even for the most seasoned fashionista that can make getting dressed in the morning a reeeal challenge.

That’s why I love patterned tights. Not too heavy and not too bare, patterned tights are the perfect solution for this transitional period. They wear well when it’s windy and cold out; they also wear well when it’s sunny and warm. I especially love the idea of mixing patterns – a jacquard print dress with Wolford’s fan-print tights, or a sweet floral mini with super-small fishnets. Whether you go Gossip Girl glam, or dress up your favourite LBD, you can’t really go wrong with this style for Spring.


Wolford fan-print tights, $65, Net-A-Porter

Floral-print tights, $21.50, Figleaves

Check-print tights, $21, Sears
