I’ve loved Maccs for years now, and I was so excited when they announced they’d launched their own house brand this year, Maccs the Label. Based out of Vancouver (my hometown), the owner Tessa has always been such a sweet friend to RAOP, and she was kind enough to send a gorgeous Chloé Playsuit my way right before I took off for France.

The results? A Spring boudoir look that I just couldn’t get enough of while I was away (and now that I’m back home!) Accessorized with a simple choker, a lacy bra, and simple black sandals, this outfit was effortlessly chic, and my new peach trench from Lovers + friends was the perfect topper for chilly days!

Here in Toronto things can get quite desolate outfit-wise without the right variety of coats in your closet. There are only about two months a year where we don’t have to wear a coat or jacket, so without a diverse range you can easily get into a “same thing every day” outfit slump. Trust me, it’s not fun.

It probably comes as no surprise that I have a special place in my heart for pink coats. Whereas most people *might* add a “pop” of colour to their outerwear repertoire, I strive to have a different shade of pink jacket for every day of the week and every single season. When I first saw this hot pink cocoon number on the J Crew website before Christmas I was totally smitten. Unfortunately I barely had time to grab my wallet before it was completely sold out in every shade.

*Tear*

A few weeks ago I was out for lunch with Paige (aka Studio Bicyclette) and the dream pink coat came up in conversation. She mentioned she’d kept her eyes out for it on Ebay, and on a total whim I went home and checked myself. That’s when my pink coat miracle occurred- there was one size two available, and thanks to a tiny blue stain it was actually less expensive than it had been in stores. I instantly jumped on it, and the rest is, well, evident in these pictures.

The best part? The alleged “blue dot” is completely invisible- we seriously can’t even find it! Maybe I should invest in some lottery tickets this month too? I’m feeling lucky…

The new year is all about new traditions, so we thought it was about time to introduce some fun new ideas here at RAOP. We fall for countless products and pieces over the course of a year, but some really stand out above and beyond others. Whether it be a beautifully handcrafted, locally-made backpack, or crazy glittery rings that match every manicure, we can’t help but pick favourites, and to bring 2015 to an end we decided it would be fun to get all of them together in one “best of 2015” styled lookbook.

Ladies, gentleman, kittens, and everyone in between- we give you our 2015 RAOP picks!
