#MyTwikLook | An #OOTD With Simons and Anne Sportun

Mega bow skirt

I adore shopping at Simons. This Canadian department store carries it's own fashion collections like TWIK, which I have loved for years. ChickAdvisor recently ran a campaign featuring some of TWIK's most on-trend pieces, and I fully freaked out when I was accepted into the campaign. I ordered the Mega bow skirtFaux-leather leggingFinely-ribbed turtleneck, Double diamond hair clips, and 2 Classic combs.

Simons Hair Clips

The  Mega bow skirt above is beautiful and has such a unique design. I got it in the brown herringbone print and the fabric is glorious. Definitely worth $50. It is lined, and has a generous amount of fabric for the bow. It fits true to size - I'm a 0 or XS. Unfortunately, the "fit finder" app online did not work for this item. It advised me to buy the size S, which was way too big and floppy. Luckily, I was able to have it exchanged for free and the new size fits perfect.

I saw the Finely-ribbed turtleneck on the model, and had to get it to match. I'm very pleased with the softness of the fabric, but I do find it to stretch out throughout the day. You could size down in this top.

Faux-leather leggings

The Faux-leather leggings are thick and made from high quality fabric. I used the "fit finder" app on the Simon's website and managed to find the right match in size S (I'm usually a 0 in pants). The waistband is very high, which I love, but they aren't too tight. They remind me a lot of the Artizia vegan leather leggings, but for a fraction of the cost. These bottoms elevate a comfy weekend outfit, or can be worn as trendy work-wear/evening wear. These leggings are the best find for $20.

Anne Sportun Wrap Bracelet

I nearly jumped out of my seat when I received an invite to Anne Sportun’s flagship store on Queen West in Toronto. At the event we explored her collection, along with a few other stunning designers that they carry in-store.


In the generous gift bag, we received a yoga mat, bath salts from The Cure Apothecary, a Simply Protein Bar, Body Lotion from Aēsop, and the best 34" Signature Gemstone Wrap Bracelet in Pyrite.
  • Pyrite is a protective and shielding stone
  • Anne's designs are all handmade, here in Toronto
  • The signature wrap bracelets are strung on stainless steel wire, so they can get wet
  • The tassel and clasp are made of 18k yellow gold, and there's a gold hex bead in the centre (shown below)
  • It is 3 pieces in one: a bracelet, a long necklace and a doubled up necklace -

This wrap can be worn as a necklace, bracelet, anklet, you name it. It's so versatile and very well made out of gemstones and 18k gold. Anne says that her jewellery can be put on once and worn forever. I've been wearing my wrap nonstop, you don't even need to take it off to shower.
