Dry-cleaning is expensive and uses harmful chemicals that are not only bad for the garment, but for you as well. LG developed a new product that will revolutionize the way we clean our clothes. The company unveiled the LGStyler during New York Fashion Week. It is a high-tech closet that will steam, remove wrinkles, eliminate odours and kill bacteria without using harsh chemicals. The LG Styler uses TrueSteam Technology and LG’s Clothes Care system to care for the garments.
It is simple to use. All you do is hang your clothes on the hanger and place in the closet. Once it is started, the hangers will begin to shake and steam will be released to remove the wrinkles. At the end of the process, an aroma of the user’s choice will be released to give a pleasant scent to the garment. Another great feature of this product is the built in pant press to give your trousers a crisp pleat.
What we love about this product is that it is not only useful for clothing. You can use it to clean duvets, scarves and your child’s teddy bear. The product is set to retail at $2,000.00 USD and will be available soon.
We can’t wait to see more of this product and hopefully we will be able to get our hands on one! What do you think of the LG Styler? Would you try one?
Fall is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited to break out our boots! Maybe it’s the background in horseback riding, but we love to care for our fall boots like we would care for our riding boots before a show. We have been using Lexol products on our riding boots forever and we love using them on all our other boots to keep the leather in tip top shape.
Looking for the best cobbler in Montreal? Look no further than Carinthia! The company has been around since 1940 and is known in Montreal has one of the best cobblers. They are the only place we recommend you bring your Christian Louboutin’s. Clients include: Holt Renfrew, Ogilvy’s, Stuart Weitzman and many more.
It can be tricky to care for your Louboutins red soles and when you get them from the store they can be quite slippery. Carinthia will take your shoes and put on a matching half sole to prevent you from slipping and damaging the soles. Ever get your stiletto caught in a grate? Mess up the leather on your heel? They can fix that.
Take a look at some of our own before and after pictures.
Carinthia is the only place we trust to bring any of our shoes.
There is nothing worse than trying to find your favorite t-shirt in your drawer. With traditional folding everything is piled on top of each other and it makes it difficult to see what is on the bottom. And once you find your shirt, those neat piles are no longer and you are left with an unorganized mess of a drawer. Making every item you own visible is the key to an organized closet, that is why Pliio is so popular amongst professional organizers. Pliio is a clothing filer that helps shape your clothes so they can be easily filed in your drawer or storage box. We strongly suggest this product to all our clients.
There are different sizes available. We use the small to fold workout tanks and camisoles and the medium to fold t-shirts. There is also a large size available, which is great for folding larger sweaters.
We put together a step by step guide on how to fold using the Pliio. It takes the same amount of time as regularly folding your clothes, but you’re left with a much neater result.
Our first love might be closets, but we definitely have a thing for organized pantries. To us, an organized pantry takes the stress out of anything kitchen related. We thought we would share a quick round-up of our favorite pantries and some tips and tricks to keeping your pantry organized and stress free.
Tip #1: Using clear containers
Everything we buy comes in a different sized box or container and never looks streamlined when placed in a pantry. We love how the NEAT Method uses labelled clear containers to keep their clients pantry organized. Clear containers enable you to see exactly how much you have left of a certain product and the labels help identify what is in each one. Plus, the airtight containers keep your food fresh longer. Who else hates when cereal goes stale? To take this one step further, we recommend including the cooking time on the labels of certain items like pasta, oatmeal or cake mixes.
Tip #2: Use baskets
Baskets are great to keep items that don’t need to be in an airtight container together. You can keep all your granola bars or water bottles together in one place. This pantry designed by Maison Maison does just that. If you’re looking for chips all you have to do is pull out the chip basket and all your options are there.
Tip #3: Keep appliances in your pantry to free up counter space
Obviously this tip only works if you are lucky enough to have a large pantry like the one pictured above. There is nothing worse than walking into a kitchen and seing 10 different appliances sprawled out on the counter. We like the idea of keeping them in the pantry hidden from guests. That way your kitchen always looks clean and uncluttered and the mess stays hidden in the pantry!
Feeling inspired to tackle your messy pantry this week? We listed some items mentioned below.

We listed some of our musts for laundry day below.

When we’re not at Holt Renfrew, you can definitely find us shopping online at The Container Store (#CanadianProblems). They have a variety of products to help you organize any space. We decided to share our fave Container Store products that we can’t live without.
1. The clear acrylic shelf dividers are a great way to keep piles of sweaters from toppling over. We especially love this model from The Container Store because of it’s built in hanger hook!
2. An easy way to streamline your closet and increase your hanging space is to switch all your hangers to Huggable Hangers! We love this product because the hangers are non-slip and keep even the slinkiest of tops off the floor. They come in a variety of colours, but we like the chic look of all black.
