Fashion Jobs – Leave Your Hat On

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015


Remember the days of yore when a woman wouldn’t be caught dead outside of her house without a hat? There’s something about a floppy, wide brimmed chapeau that harkens to the bold yet outrageously feminine appeal of Dior’s “New Look” from back in the day, while also calling to mind the carefree comfort and simplicity of the summer months. Floppy hats are an excellent way to add a touch of whimsy (without being girlish) to your ensemble and a timeless way to celebrate summer while still maintaining a delightfully business casual look.

Fashion Jobs – Wide Legs

Friday, July 24th, 2015


Wide leg trousers and culottes should be a staple in anyone’s professional wardrobe. Regardless of what industry you work in, this look is always sophisticated and polished without being too complicated or dressy. Depending on the dress code in your office, any of these trousers can be paired with a simple silk t-shirt or a slim white button down. I love to wear my wide culottes to work with a simple top and a colorful pair of slingbacks. Another great take on this seventies-inspired trend is pairing a wide-leg pant with a matching knit sweater or sleeveless boxy blouse (I love grey-on-grey or all navy). However you wear them, these pants are perfect for a pulled-together and professional look.

Fashion Jobs – Totally For Pinafore

Monday, July 20th, 2015



Pinafore dresses are all the rage this season. With denim and overalls alike being a huge trend, pinafore dresses provide the possibility to combine the two for the ultimate on-trend outfit. This bold trend allows you to take contemporary pieces and materials a step further to fully demonstrate your impeccable sense of style. Pinafore dresses are great for the office and can easily be transitioned to a night-out by changing your accessories. You can also change up what you wear underneath to develop the look in whichever direction you please. By adding a knit tank underneath, you are able to play around with different textures. For a day time look, pair your pinafore dress with some heeled sandals. To transition the look to be more appropriate for a night out, pick out some great platform heels for a fun retro look.

Fashion Jobs – Summer of Shoulders

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015



Off the shoulder tops, dresses, jumpsuits, and even bikinis are a major trend this summer. I absolutely love this look because it so pretty and feminine, and shows some skin without baring too much. It also allows an outfit to be interesting even if it is quite basic. This is the perfect look for a date or summer barbeque! Reformation has done a fantastic job with this trend. Their billowy tops and linen dresses epitomize easy summer dressing. I love to wear an off the shoulder dress with a pair of basic slides, or a tunic with cropped jeans and strappy sandals. For the risk takers, some amazing bikinis are available in this style- especially the ones by Sahara Ray (beware of tan lines). This seventies-inspired look is so great for the warmer months, and can easily take you from a beach day to a dinner date!


1. Reformation Nashville Dress, $168 USD

2. Zara Off the Shoulder Poplin Shirt, $50

3. MissGuided Floral Print Off the Shoulder Crop Top, $48, available at ASOS

4. Tibi Off the Shoulder Denim Tunic, $376, available at ShopBop

5. The Jetset Diaries Mulher Bonita Dress, $241, available at ShopBop

Fashion Jobs Toronto – To Have and to Hold

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014




Purses and bags are my favourite accessory. I have more than I probably should, but I always find a way to justify a new one. This year, purse trends for the spring aren’t a complete surprise. Seasonal favourites like florals and pastels are back, textures and black and white add some luxury, while classic shapes continue the retro comeback. Since a handbag is a personal item made for carrying your everyday items, only you can know what works best. But in the meantime, I’ve picked a few of the ones I love for the spring.



1. This purse exemplifies the top handle trend. A feminine take on the doctor bag, the top handle is big with a structured everyday bag, but we’ve also seen it in smaller versions all over the runway. ASOS Top handle handbag, $120.



2. For evenings or weekend brunches, the clutch is getting a makeover. The larger, less structured clutch is being favoured over its hard shell-like predecessor. Deux Lux Clutch, $115, available at Nordstrom.



3. Pastels are always a spring staple. This season we’re seeing lots of blush and petal pinks but this green is a nice alternative. Fossil mini bag, $88.



4. I have to admit I was surprised to see the bucket bag make a comeback. It seems so dated to me but once I saw the makeover it got (great hardware, bright colours and lots of detail) I must say I may be coming around. Stella McCartney, $1075, available at Ssense.


5. Fringe is back. This hippie inspired look is perfect for the coming summer months of music festivals and beach trips. Rebecca Minkoff, $215, available at Nordstrom.


6. If you just can’t pick one texture or material, then a mixed media handbag is for you. The combination of leather with studs, or linen and canvas is a great way to add detail and make a statement. Juicy Couture, $160

As the transition from winter to spring begins, it’s important to have a few pieces in your wardrobe that work on both chilly and warmer days. Owning a great knitted top is the perfect piece to bring you into the spring season.

There are many features about knitted tops, which make the pieces incredibly versatile. You can wear sweaters loose or tight fitted, and they can be fun or work appropriate. Since spring is around the corner, there are many options that are in lighter shades such as beige or pink, but you can always select the classic black to ensure longevity. A knitted top is cute paired with skinny jeans or a skirt, and can be either casual or classy. If you have been looking for a style that you will be able to wear in the cold, as well as once the weather has warmed up, the knitted sweater will be the new go-to item in your closet.

 1. Le Chateau Tweed Cut-Out Sweater, $49.95

2. Le Chateau Open Stitch Boat Neck Sweater, $39.95

3. Avenue A Sweater, $75.00, available at Aritzia

4. H&M Knitted Jumper $29.95

5. TOBI Twisted Over You Knit Sweater, $90.00

6. Free People Seeing in Black and White Pullover, $51.62

7. ASOS Vila Animi Knit Top, $62.42

8. Zara Knit Crop Top, $59.90

Calgary Fashion Jobs – Platforms

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013



If you’ve read some of my recent posts, you know that I have been claiming that the 90s are back in a major way. We have been revisiting the loud colours, the music (anyone catch the N*Sync reunion on the VMA’s the other night?) and of course the outrageous trends. While re-watching old episodes of Beverly Hills 90210 –hey if we’re going to time warp, we gotta do it right- I noticed a few of the characters ensembles making their way into my own closet.  The cropped tops and the high waisted cut offs are a given, but what really convinced me of this blast from the past are the chunky platform shoes. Everyone has been rocking the 90’s, Spice Girls-esque shoes as of late, a more comfortable, laid back approach to the classic high heel. I personally don’t have any desire to revisit this trend, but none the less, platform shoes are hands down this year’s biggest comeback. Score some style tips from iconic characters from the 90’s such as Cher Horowitz and Donna Martin for some funky ways to dress up those sky high shoes.


1. ASOS Platform lace up shoes, $133

2. Nine West Retro platform pump, $150

3. Topshop Astrix lace up boot, $72, available at Hudson’s Bay

4. Topshop mega high platform, $40, available at Hudson’s Bay

5. Steve Madden Arowsmit platform sneakers, $90

6. Steve Madden Dejavu heel, $56

Edmonton Fashion Jobs – Summer Work Attire

While you may be tempted to purchase an entirely new wardrobe for summer, there is no need to max out your credit cards just yet. In reality, there are only a few basic essentials you need to give your workwear wardrobe an updated, summery feel, while still looking office-appropriate.


Wearing a dress in a colourful print is a chic and ladylike way to add a summery vibe to your everyday work look. It’s important to remember that a work dress should be made of a slightly thicker fabric than your typical sundress, and stop close to the knee. Sleeveless is okay, but spaghetti straps should be saved for the beach.


A pencil skirt or cropped trousers in a pretty floral pattern are also great staples for your warm-weather wardrobe. Try wearing them with muted colors (such as black and white) for office-appropriate style.


Remember that while temperatures may be sweltering outside this time of year, offices usually have their air conditioning on at full blast. By having a lightweight cardigan or blazer around, you can easily layer it over your outfit for both warmth and added style.


Finally, invest in a pair of office-appropriate sandals to keep your feet cool all day long. Ankle-strapped heels or peep-toe pumps are a more professional alternative to flip-flops for the summer months.


1. Closet Sleeveless Skater Dress, $80.73, available at ASOS

2. Closet Tie Back Dress with Pockets in Jewel Print, $80.73, available at ASOS

3. PINKO Floral Pencil Skirt, $228.19, available at Farfetch

4. Eliza J. Ruched Sleeve Blazer, $85.12, available at Nordstrom

5. Anne Taylor Crew Neck Short Sleeve Cardigan, $73.17

6. ASOS Pants in Floral Print, $56.51

7. Kate Spade New York Carrin Pump, $ 357.94, available at Nordstrom

8. Rachel Zoe Brooklyn Black Leather Sandal, $184.38, available at Forzieri

Montreal Fashion Jobs – The Summer Animal

Animal print is always a great piece to wear to spice things up in the Fall/Winter. The typical cheetah, leopard and zebra prints are great to add a little spunk and attitude to the wardrobe. But when it comes to summer, it’s time to put those old prints away and do a little shopping!

Summer is all about the bright, bold colours and light fabrics. Despite the myth, animal print can actually be worn in the summer! Since Miu Miu put out their Spring 2010 collection on the runway with the notorious bird prints, a new wave of wearing animal suddenly appeared in fashion. Taking a more literal approach to the word animal print, this new trend takes the actual animal and uses it as the print. It’s fun, flirty and a perfect lighter alternative to the typical animal print!
