Fashion Jobs – Grease is The Word

August 26th, 2015
One of the best investments you can make in your wardrobe is in a quality leather moto jacket. If you take care of it you’ll be able to wear it until the end of time (it’s pretty much guaranteed to outlive you), and it will give you an undeniable sense of “cool” that few other pieces can do. You can wear a moto jacket with pretty much everything, and it’s a refreshing alternative to a trench when you’re looking for business casual seasonal outerwear. Vintage or secondhand stores Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Summer Turtlenecks

August 25th, 2015
Sleeveless turtlenecks are having a major moment in fall fashion. It is easy to see why they are becoming so popular with the diversity they allow for many outfits! For a casual, yet still put together, office look, pair a sleeveless turtle neck with skinny pants, a bold bag, and booties. Once the weather becomes colder (I know we aren’t ready to think of that yet) it can be paired with a nice tailored blazer as well! Here are my top picks for pieces that compliment a sleeveless turtleneck Read More...

Fashion Jobs – The New Dressy

August 20th, 2015
To me, a white button up is the ultimate staple in masculine dressing. Pairing this versatile item with a pair of shorts adds the perfect touch of femininity. My favourite type of shorts to pair this with are high-waisted cut offs along with some lace up sandals. Messily tuck in the button-up for an undone yet sophisticated look. For a more feminine look, pair a slim-fitting silk dress shirt with shorts in a matching colour. I love to pair navy with navy for this look and top it off with a p Read More...

If you’re anything like me, you’ve come to realize that life is too short for uncomfortable footwear. But one thing that both flat and heel loving ladies can agree on is that a good pair of oxfords can do wonders for an outfit in a million different ways. You can keep it classic with a solid brown leather pair, or you can experiment with colours and prints. There are also a ton of different variations in style, ranging from traditional and familiar to more casual and edgy, with many styl Read More...

Fashion Jobs – The Best Black Pumps

August 11th, 2015
A good pair of black pointed-toe pumps is a wardrobe staple. While this shoe can be worn any time of year with almost anything, certain styles are more appropriate for various occasions. For office wear, I love a great pair of pointed toe mules like the Schutz pair pictured. These are professional but also interesting and add some excitement into a conservative office outfit. A simpler pair of black pointed toe pumps (see Head Over Heels pair pictured) is better paired with dark jeans and a Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Grey Matter

August 10th, 2015
There’s something about a monochromatic grey look that is unbelievably sophisticated and sexy. Always a constant in the fall and winter months, grey is getting a reboot this year according to leading colour authority Pantone, which cites the shade Desert Sage, a cool and soothing greenish-gray, as “the ideal neutral across the Fall 2015 palette. Timeless and unobtrusive, yet powerful enough to make a statement on its own, Desert Sage speaks to the feeling of naturally inspired colors tha Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Olivia Pope Office Style Inspiration

August 9th, 2015
   I finally was able to sit down and binge watch Netflix’s popular show, Scandal. Instantly I was inspired by Olivia Pope’s fashion style. Whether she is solving a client’s problem or helping the President of the United States, Olivia Pope is always dressed to impress. She is a business woman that needs to maintain a professional appearance but doesn’t let that stop her from having fun with her wardrobe. I have rounded up one of my favorite looks that Olivia often sports various ve Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Blue Jean Baby: Denim Dresses for the Office

August 5th, 2015
Times, they are a-changing. Once relegated to casual Fridays, denim in many cases has become more acceptable in offices and other workplaces and as a result, there are tons of diverse ways to wear it. Denim button-downs have been a staple for a few years now, but the spring runways (notably Gucci and Stella McCartney) have seen an onslaught of denim dresses that would work well for both the summer and fall months. As you may recall from a recentblog post discussing denim pinafore dresses Read More...

Fashion Jobs – White Blazers the Right Way

August 4th, 2015
Personally, I do not believe in the "no white after Labour Day" rule. For this reason, I love to wear a classic white blazer as a transitional piece coming into fall. This look is so classic and crisp and really pulls together any outfit. I love to pair my oversize white blazer with high-waisted denim shorts, a tee shirt and sneakers to add some contrast to the look. I also love to see a white silk blazer paired with a navy pencil skirt for a more professional outfit. For a dressier nighttim Read More...
