Fashion Jobs – 5 Workwear Don’ts

October 14th, 2014
  I’ve worked in offices with a very relaxed dress code and offices where it was mandatory to dress professionally.

It does not matter what sort of dress code is allowed in the office, there are still a few things you should never wear to work. Here’s a list of the top 5 worst offenders.   1.

Fashion Jobs – Fashion Career Advice: No Competition

October 9th, 2014
The fashion industry is often noted as being highly competitive in nature. And while the actual availability of jobs may reflect just that, the sense of competition and the feelings of stress that are often associated with it are arguably self-induced. It’s impossible to control the external happenings around us, but what we can control is our own self development. When it comes to landing your dream job, think of the process as less a competition with every other candidate, and more as a pe Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Festive Thanksgiving Style

October 8th, 2014
Like many others, I love and look forward to the holidays. I love cocoa by the fire, spending time with family, and expanding my waist-size with hearty helpings of turkey. One of my favourite parts of the holiday season though has always been the playful and silly fashion that comes along with it. I believe that you should always have fun with your style, but during the holidays I really play it up with goofy pieces like a turkey printed sweater or moose printed pajamas.   UGLY SW Read More...

October 7th, 2014
Outfit details: Dress and jacket from Minimum, purse and booties from Le Chateau, hoops from House of Harlow, ring set from Aldo   While fall is usually the time when dark palettes reign supreme, it’s always nice to bring a bit of colour to your work look. Don’t get me wrong, some vibrant colours are probably just a tad inappropriate for the office (for example, lime green), however, there’s still plenty of options to choose from.   For this week’s out Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Sparkle and Embellishment for Fall

October 6th, 2014
This season, there will be a lot of sophisticated looks that bring together femininity and confidence. Much like our beloved chunky necklaces and statement jewellery, luxurious beads on clothing take that extra step of accessorizing down a notch. In fact, the embellishment constructs an outfit that allows you to be bold by simply slipping on a dress or a beaded sweater (really popular as it is sweater season). Not only that, it has also become common for street-wear and even your sporty jogge Read More...
