Model Citizens Photo of the Day: Animal Prints- Impact or Neutral?

This is another photo from our "Spring Awakening" photo shoot. Victoria looks amazing in these JBrand jeans, animal print blouse and Harriet Grey necklace. When I think of animal prints, my mind immediately goes to Pat Bundy (Married with Children) or over-the-top styling of Gwen Stefani. This is a great example of taking a big, bold print and wearing it in a soft and feminine fashion.

Model Citizens Spring Awakening Shoot: The Beauty of a Vintage Blazer

The stunning Melanie Caines is sporting one of the most essential items in any women's wardrobe: the vintage blazer. Blazers are versatile, stylish and complete any outfit. The blazer in todays photo is available at Model Citizens today and is one of my favourite items in the store. Check out some other kinds of blazers below:

This plaid Pendleton blazer is the perfect way to rock the prepster vintage look. We have a few rare Pendleton blazers in store today!

The amazing part about this vintage 90's Ralph Lauren double breasted blazer is its versatility. We paired it here with an amazing pair of olive green, highwaisted shorts and a vintage grey heathered tee.

Check it out with a sequinned dress and vintage bowler hat:

How Much is that Clothing in the Window? The One with the Sparkly..

Check out Model Citizens' new windows! Inspired by our latest photo shoot, we wanted to give the windows a spring feel without full on summer vibe (as we will not see that for a while). The green tank to the left is a very special piece as it is a L.A.M.B tank, which is Gwen Stefani's clothing line. The beauty pink BCBG top sold a few days ago but those sweet colour blocked JCREW flats and silver Marc Jacobs flats are waiting for you!

The dress in this window is from Vancouver based Ark Clothing. These dresses are all constructed from vintage dresses and are all one of a kind. We are running out of this design fast so, get em' while they are hawt! We have another order coming in at the end of the week, but they will be all different! Those Bakers platform gold shoes in the window are seriously to die for.

Trend Spotting: Navajo Prints!

Vintage Navajo prints are MASSIVE this spring and these knitted sweaters are very hard to come by in the vintage world. This awesome knit sweater is available in stock today, but rush in as it won't be for long. We have been coveting this sweater for a little while and we wanted to shoot it.

The person who gets this fantastic sweater is a lucky girl.

Wear it with jeans, shorts or even a long gauzy skirt.
