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.

Office Style: The Pencil Skirt – #SNTFxRobson

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

Fall is the time of year for new beginnings. Whether that means going back to school, seeking out your first professional job post-graduation, or transitioning into a new career path altogether, it is definitely the season of change for many. In Style Nine to Five’s new collaboration with Robson Street, I’ll be sharing weekly work-appropriate outfits that certainly don’t lack in the style department. DSC_0196-ddEdit




September marks a new beginning, and with fashion week looming, there’s inspiration all around. The way you dress is the perfect way to make a statement. When it comes to your career, you don’t want to go overboard with the trends, even if you are working in fashion. While in-the-moment pieces can definitely be incorporated into your work look, I still rely on the basics to tone down any loud items.


This week is all about the pencil skirt. The silhouette of a high-waisted pencil skirt is flattering, accentuating the smallest part of your body- the waist. Not only does the length make it work appropriate, there are also many styles and fabrications to choose from. Since we’re heading into fall, I chose a white faux leather pencil skirt. While the basic piece is timeless, the white is a fresh take on leather.  Yes, you CAN wear white after Labour Day. In fact, rocking white during fall is a great way to make a statement.


I paired the pencil skirt with a black sweater, sticking to a theme of black and white (colour blocking). I love how the sweater has a built in leather collar, that ties back to the leather of the skirt. When choosing heels for work, I always recommend a lower heel for maximum comfort. These pointed, strappy pumps fit the bill, and the red was a subtle way to work in a pop of colour into my look. I kept my accessories to a minimum, opting for a pair of classic studs as the rest of the pieces already had quite a bit of attitude.


The important thing to note is that my finished look featured pieces from various price points. I’m a huge fan of mixing higher and lower price point items. It’s all about mixing the right pieces together to look like and feel like a million bucks.


Outfit details: sweater from Club Monaco ($159.50), skirt from Zara ($59.90), heels from Aldo ($90), bracelet ($5.80) and earrings ($4.80) from Forever 21

The addition of fringe into your everyday wear is a great opportunity to add a bit of personality to your spring wardrobe. The best feature about this look is that you can add as much or as little fringe as you want to your outfit. You can keep it simple by wearing it in a purse or other accessory, or, you can go all out and wear it in a dress. If you choose to wear a lot of fringe, it may be best to keep the rest of your look neutral, just to ensure you are keeping fringe as the focus.

Fringe is a great way to add a pop of interest to your wardrobe, and since there are many different ways to wear it, everyone will be able to find a piece that suits their personal style.

Fashion Jobs Vancouver – Chic Stocking Stuffers

Monday, December 16th, 2013




After all your major presents have been purchased, it can be difficult to think of little items that will go in a stocking. The challenge is that you don’t want to spend too much money on these items, but at the same time, you want these presents to be heartfelt and fabulous.

Getting someone stocking stuffers that will make them feel warm and cozy is always a great way to go. Picking up slippers, some comfy pajamas or a beautiful scarf will always be a hit. If you’re buying for someone who is more fashion forward, then a bedazzled phone case or some geometric earrings may be the perfect gift in her stocking.

When buying little presents to fill a stocking, it really is the thought that counts and these gifts are just little additions to the main (present) event. When looking for small gifts, there are many options to help take the pressure off Santa, and make you look like a superstar.

1. H&M iPhone 4/4S Case, $6.95

2. Victoria’s Secret Fireside Ballet Slipper, $25.00

3. Forever 21Bunny Parade PJ Shorts, $9.80

4. Old Navy Women’s Monogram-Graphic Mittens, $5.00

In this fast paced society, we sometimes find ourselves going from one commitment to another without any time to change. Whether they’re last minute plans or something I’ve known about for weeks, I usually have the plan my outfit for the day accordingly, especially now that the holiday season is right around the corner. With all the parties and events coming up you’ll barely have time to breathe let alone change, this is why work to play outfits and accessories are so popular nowadays. Nothing is worse than having to meet some friends after work or school and being completely underdressed or overdressed. This week I’ve rounded up some of my favorite day to play bags to share with our style nine to five readers. Trot these purses around all day then let them transition into the evening hours.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Animal Friendly Fashion

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013



If you’re looking for a way to stay warm and chic as the weather gets cooler, then faux fur will be you new go-to material of choice.
p style=”padding-top: 14px;”>
For centuries, fur has been used to ensure the human body isn’t cold. However, for ethical reasons, many people are shying away from using the real thing. Thankfully, retailers have now made high quality faux fur that looks real, and still acts as a buffer from the weather. Typically, faux fur is used in outerwear as it isn’t practical to be used as a bottom layering piece. You can wear it as an accent to a coat, as a full faux jacket, or as a vest. Any way that you choose to rock the look will be fabulous, and there are many different ways that you can make this style your own. Just remember that wearing faux fur is a statement on its own, so if you tend to shy away from ostentatious outfits, you may want to keep all other pieces neutral.
p style=”padding-top: 14px;”>
Faux fur is the perfect combination of both fashion and function, and the animals will thank you for choosing to go with a synthetic, instead of the real thing.


1. Forever 21 Luxe Faux Fur Vest, $35.80

2. Free People Technicolour Vegan Fur Coat, $307.96

3. H&M Fake Fur Jacket, $69.95

4. Anthropologie Downy Fur Vest, $250.00

5. Topshop Borg Biker Jacket, $78.00

6. Talula Park Slope Vest, $110.00, available at Aritzia

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Shoulder to Shoulder

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013





In a world where showing cleavage and midriffs is considered sexy, this fall, there is a new body part that is stealing the show: shoulders.

The demure look of the sexy shoulder has been represented in many different ways. Some retailers are opting to use mesh around the collar area, whereas others have completely removed the material that would cover the shoulders. This is a look that is sensual in the most casual of ways. The bit of exposed shoulder will turn any outfit into a piece that is ready for a night out. The only issue with a sexy shoulder is that you need to have an appropriate bra. However, once you find a strapless that is comfortable, you’ll be able to wear this look with ease.

This fall, looking demurely sexy can be easy just by adding an exposed shoulder to your wardrobe.

1. Forever 21 Romantic Crochet Lace Pullover, $21.80

2. Urban Outfitters Sparkle & Fade Cozy Cold-Shoulder Top, $44.00

3. H&M Mess Dress, $29.95

4. Zara Sweater with Transparent Panel at Side, $54.90

5. Free People Open Shoulder Cross Back Tunic, $173.61

6. Nasty Gal Total Stud Blouse-Cream, $48.00

Fashion Jobs – Fall Accessories

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

fall1fall2 fall3 fall4 fall5 fall6

One of the very few benefits of summer coming to an end is the fall fashion. I usually find that we over compensate in the fall with all of our accessories. Sure its exciting being able to mix and match hats and scarves, but you shouldn’t wear all of your newly purchased pieces at the same time. I know it’s hard with all the amazing trends that have popped up this year, but pace yourself, and you’ll be looking cool every day of the week.

Hats and scarves are a fall go-to, but this season try a fresh take on the classic pieces by opting for crazy colours, shapes or patterns. Scull patterns have been popping up all over scarves as of late, this rough and tough piece looks amazing when paired with a tailored leather jacket. As for hats, go for beanies with fun colours, pom poms, or maybe even cat ears, the crazier the hat, the bigger the statement. Not into the beanie look? Try going for a glamorous head piece. Although it won’t keep you warm, this gorgeous head accessory will have heads turning everywhere you go. As for jewelry gold, gold, gold is all over the place. Chunky gold bracelets, necklaces and even earrings have been all the rage this season, for all the right reasons. Yellow gold goes with just about every outfit and shines bright through the dreary fall days.


1. H&M Crinkled Scarf, $7

2. Anna Sui embellished crochet-kit owl hat, $235, available at net-a-porter

3. River Island Crystal embellished headpiece, $50

4. forever 21 Faux leather chain choker, $7.80

5. forever 21 Pretty tough braided bracelet, $15.80

6. forever 21cut out chevron studs, $3.80

Canadian Fashion Careers – Printed Shorts

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Image 1 Image 2 Image 3 Image 4 Image 5 Image 6 Image 7 Image 8 Image 9 Image 10

While traditional blue jean shorts are a summer style staple year after year, it’s all about printed pairs this season. From bright floral prints to unique geometric shapes to wild animal patterns, printed shorts are a stylish way to add a bold statement to your warm-weather outfits.

What I love about this trend is that you can achieve a variety of different looks simply by changing your top. If you want your shorts to function as a statement piece, pair them with a solid coloured top and simple accessories. If you’re going for a more edgy look, treat your printed shorts as a neutral by pairing them with a cool graphic tee. If you want to rock the mixed-prints trend, pair your shorts with a differently patterned top. For example, wear a pair of floral printed shorts with a black and white striped t-shirt.

When paired with the right tops and accessories, printed shorts have the ability to take your look from casual to dressed up instantly. Swap a slouchy graphic tee for a classic white button-down for a more tailored daytime look, or add a pair of strappy heels and a fitted blazer for a night out on the town.

1. Sass Splendid Shorts, $59.95, available at The Iconic
2. French Connection Fast Gwendoline Linen & Cotton Floral Shorts, $51.16, available at Saks Fifth Avenue
3. Mink Pink Copacabana Shorts, $56, available at ThreadSense
4. ThreadSense Painted Desert Printed Shorts, $38
5. ThreadSense Reef Side Crocheted Chevron Shorts, $30
6. ThreadSense Baja California Striped Shorts, $40
7. Insight Tropico Printed Shorts, $60, available at ThreadSense
8. Mink Pink The Fast and the Fur-ious Shorts, $41.99, available at ModCloth
9. Forever 21 Drawstring Animal Print Shorts, $17.80
10. Forever 21 Vertical Stripe Denim Shorts, $21.80
