Welcome to geekigirlStyle – A Weekly #OOTD Update

I’m not having much success in finding a really great way of automatically incorporating my Instagram content over here on the blog. I love Instagram and I like to post a lot of random fun things there. Since there isn’t an automatic solution that meets my needs, I’ve decided to do it manually. So to make it easier, I’ve decided to create a new weekly outfit of the day (#OOTD) column called geekigirlStyle. I don’t do a lot of personal style posting here (feels a bit weird to be honest) so I’m happy to ease into it with this weekly…

i want: Combinaison Jumpsuit by Horses Atelier

I never knew I wanted a linen jumpsuit in pale pink until I saw that Horses Atelier created one for Spring Summer 2014. Now, that’s a bit of a lie, I’ve always had an interest in jumpsuits. A military flight suit is on my military “I want” list and has been for a long time. I haven’t pursued acquiring a flight suit very actively. When I do come across them they are either too weird-looking like this Soviet MIG flight suit or they are just too big and beyond the magic of alterations. Then there are the colour options which don’t really…

I want – I got’s Holiday Gift Guide – Fashion, Beauty and Jewellery

It’s that time of year again and I want – I got is putting together massive Gift Guides of things I think would be perfect to give as gifts this season. The fifth edition of the Gift Guides is the one we’ve been waiting for Fashion, Beauty and Jewellery. This is a big one and I could go on for days with selections. Who doesn’t love the 20s? It’s my favourite style era and I love these Vintage Style Flapper Dresses by Cabaret Vintage. They range in price from $195 to 350 and are available online or at the Queen…

i want: Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2014 Swimwear

Oh my god, Roksanda Ilincic makes swimwear and I’m loving her one piece options. In fact, I love every one piece suit from the Resort 2014 swimwear collection. Roksanda Ilincic Swimwear starts at $430 and tops out at $815. Roksanda Ilincic Swimwear Resort 2014 Trunkshow on Moda Operandi ends July 10, 2013 at 10pm. images: modaoperandi.com

Eres Swimwear Spring Summer 2013

Swimwear rarely grabs me but I gasped when I opened the Eres Swimwear Spring Summer 2013 lookbook. I don’t wear tiny bikinis so I loved all the one piece and high waisted options Eres presented. I like the limited use of prints in the collection and the abundance of colour options. Eres swimwear is simple in design but so luxurious looking. Eres is a Parisian brand that began in 1968. Designer, Irène Leroux grew up in the swimwear business and opened a boutique the same year and revolutionized the swimwear industry by selling all year round. Eres is also responsible…

Made in Canada, A Video by Fortnight Lingerie

I love videos that give you a peek into what goes into making the clothing you buy. Toronto based Fortnight Lingerie created this great video of the work that happens at their Parkdale studio. Fortnight Lingerie is manufactured entirely in-house, at a Parkdale Village studio located in Toronto, Canada. The undergarments are handcrafted by highly trained designers, to uphold quality and precision with every piece that is created. This video is a behind-the-scenes look at the craftsmanship behind Fortnight Lingerie.

Sometimes readers ask me questions. If they are of value to all my readers I post them online. If you have a question, please feel free to submit it using the contact form. I’ll definitely do my best to answer it. I want – I got reader Nancy wrote: Hi Anita, I am desperately looking for a good professional suit that I will own for years. The kicker is that I am tall (5’11”) so most places do not carry styles long enough for my arms. The “tall girls” type of store are either way to big, crappy style or…
