We recently sat down with Sharmi Jaggi to chat all things fashion & beauty. The reason for this collaboration was to combine the thoughts behind investing in your wardrobe and beauty regime along with taking time out of our busy schedules for self-care and self-reflection to really exude your true self.
As we unfold the first of a three part video series we did with The Face Institute we hope to better explain our thoughts behind why we feel its important to invest in ourselves.
First, we chat about fashion versus style. An obvious answer is presented as we explain that fashion is what we buy and style is how we define ourselves through what we are wearing. Ever since we opened era we have always focused on buying quality pieces and moving them effortlessly throughout all the different roles we hold as women. Whether its a silk blouse worn to work or to dinner or a pair of leather pants we enjoy finding multiple uses for our pieces that hold a timeless and modern appeal.
We have recently gone back to our roots of blazers, silk tops, trousers and classic denim (with an updated twist). As we mature through our wardrobes we hope to expose you to new ideas and thoughts on your own personal wardrobe. Investing in quality pieces will help you to create a closet you feel good about and wardrobe that expresses your own personal style.

With fall approaching and summer winding down we can't help but start to get excited for our favourite season. Fall fashion is an obvious love of ours but there is also something to be said fro getting back to our regular routine as well.
This summer was the perfect time to sit back, reflect and get inspired for new and exciting adventures. Summer is always a must needed retreat from the everyday grind, repetition and of course the cold but after some time away we're ready to get back at it!
Some fall goals we have made:
- Travel more and get inspired - a little adventure always helps to get your mind working and inspire new ideas for greatness.
- Spend quality time with family - this would definitely fall under the work hard, play hard quote. Work hard and be present with the ones you love.
- Stay organized - Obviously the more organized you are the more productive you can be. This is a big one when you're trying to juggle many different hats.
- Have fun - if you can't laugh through life then whats the point. Stressful situations pop up so smile, be graceful and focus on your priorities. You can only control your own reaction - don't take things so seriously.
- Be the best you can be - its all any of us can really do after all.
And of course - choose your fall wardrobe with purpose ;) Some of era's top picks for the fall season include: A classic sweater (here
), easy trousers (here
), loafers and the perfect tote (here
So cheers to fall! Happy Shopping and stay tuned for the newest fall arrivals and top trends to follow.
