Fashion Jobs – Lightweight Knits

Monday, August 31st, 2015


There isn’t a soul on earth who loves a good cable knit more than I do, but as the leaves are beginning to change and the air is growing cooler, even I’m finding the end of summer to be hard to bear. Enter the lightweight knit, which is less of a compromise and more of a reminder that we as Canadians are lucky to experience the full range of what each season has to offer, and that transition and change are a necessary and magical part of life. Keep cozy in a printed micro-knit or try out a knit bodycon turtleneck dress, one of the season’s most promising looks.

Fashion Jobs – The New Dressy

Thursday, 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 pair of chunky heels. For an edgier look, I wear my silk black shorts with a sheer black dress shirt and pointed-toe booties. Pairing a dress shirt with shorts is so versatile, and can so easily be changed with a few simple accessories to create an effortless outfit.

Fashion Jobs – The Best Black Pumps

Tuesday, 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 casual t-shirt or sweater to amplify the look. Lastly, I like to add some edge to a more feminine look like a dress or flowy skirt with a pair of black pumps like the TopShop or Valentino pairs pictured. This little touch adds an unexpected element to more girly attire. While these options are how I like to wear my pointed black pumps, the beauty of this shoe is its versatility, so choose a pair that goes with your personal style!

Fashion Jobs – White Blazers the Right Way

Tuesday, 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 nighttime look, I wear my white blazer with high-waisted loose trousers, a crop top, and mules. This piece is so great because it can really be paired with any of the neutral pieces you have in your closet (dressy or casual), and adds that extra something to pull the whole look together perfectly!

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 – 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

Fashion Jobs – Five Ways to Style a Sundress

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canada

After a long chat with fellow fashion lovers, style bloggers & clothing fanatics on Twitter, I discovered that the majority of us consider the “summer dress” the ultimate summertime must-have.  As a personal style blogger, I am constantly looking for new ways to mix and remix my wardrobe, and this summer I am dedicated to making the most of my favourite summertime go-to: The Sundress.  (*this post will show how to style a single sundress for 1.The Office 2.Date Night 3.Attending a Wedding 4.Meeting the Parents 5.Exploring the Marketplace)




When you’re taking your beloved sundress into the office you need to make sure you’re styling it in a professional way. Add on pieces like a blazer, sophisticated jewelry, a structured handbag and a smart looking pair of flats or wedges to “office-ify” your go-to summer dress.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $119.99, Topshop Boucle zip blazer, $116, Seychelles Thyme Metallic Wedge Sandal, $95, available at Neiman Marcus, Kate Spade Sedgwick Place Phoebe Tote Bag, Cream, $478, available at Neiman Marcus, Lee Angel Lee By Stone Statement Necklace, $78, available at SHOPBOP, Aurelie Bidermann Nympheas Cuff, $905, available at Barney’s New York 




Heading out on a hot date but not sure how to dress up that sundress? Try adding in some strappy sandals, a cute handbag and some feminine gems to liven up your casual summertime favourite.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, Schutz Celina Ankle Strap Sandals, $180 $90, available at SHOPBOP, Kate Spade ‘hawthorne Lane’ Tote, $198, available at NordstormBaublebar Crystal Plasma Drop Earrings, $34, Tory Burch Stacked Logo Stud Cuff, $215.14, available at Monnier Freres





If you’re heading out to a wedding but would rather just remix your favourite sundress instead of purchasing a whole new outfit, then you’ve come to the right place! Try remixing your sundress with prim pieces like a clutch handbag, strappy sandals, and elegant jewelry.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, Big Buddha ‘Orlando’ Minaudiere, $60, available at Nordstorm, Jimmy Choo Lance Wavy Strap Sandal, $850, available at Neiman Marcus, Adia Kibur Link Chain Necklace, $70, available at SHOPBOP, Elizabeth and James Windrose Pave Ring, $150, available at SHOPBOP, Suzannah Wainhouse Jewelry Pyramid Cuff, $315, available at Barney’s New York




We all know that meeting the parents can be a bit of a nerve-wracking experience. The last thing you want to worry about is what you’re wearing, so sticking to your favourite sundress may just be the way to go. Adding in simple accessories like classic stud earrings, a simple cross-body handbag and a simple pair of flats are all great ways to have approachable style while sharing your personal flare.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, 3.1 Phillip Lim Devon, $395, available at Barney’s New York, Tory Burch Thea Chain Cross Body Bag, $375, available at SHOPBOP, By Boe Red Leather Knot Ring, $19, available on AmazonBaublebar Crystal Poker Face Studs, $24, Majorica Champagne Solitary Pearl Drop Necklace, $105 $63, available at Neiman Marcus





One of my favourite pastimes has to be exploring the Granville Island marketplace; it’s a place you can find oodles of little gems and typically I walk out with the bag full of tasty treats and a hand full of plush and pretty flowers. If you’re heading out to the marketplace in your city to do a little shopping then chances are you’re already grabbing your go-to summer sundress. Adding in some practical pieces like a cross-body purse and some basic slip-on’s will ensure you look stylish (and feel comfortable) while moseying around the flower filled aisles.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, BaubleBar Slim XO Cuff, $28, Fornash Sweetie Pie Collection Earrings, $20, available on SimplySoles, Jeffrey Campbell In Love Studded d’Orsay Flats, $130, available on SHOPBOP, Mother Stretch Cotton Love Drunk Snap Jean Jacket, $380, available at StyleBop, Leslie Danzis Cushion Marquise Bib Necklace, $98 $55, available at GiltFossil Preston Crossbody, $155

The Olympics may be over, but that doesn’t mean Canada’s golden haul has to stop there.  These metallic items will set you apart from the pack and give your outfits a punch. Rock these gilded pieces loud and proud, and although you might not have an Olympic medal yourself, you’ll surely be standing on top of the fashion podium.


For a casual look, pair gold clothing with dark neutrals and let the shine stand out. You can also pack a punch with some golden accessories, piling on the jewellery or with a statement metallic shoe or bag. On the other side of the coin, for something more formal, step out in a statement gold dress for a winning night out.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – All Cuffed Up

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013




The sweet summer season is all about the bright, bold coloured accessories filled with jewel tones and pastels.  While that is the classic staple for summer accessories, the season of Fall calls for something slightly different and when I say different, I mean really different!  Earrings are always a great piece of jewelry to wear to show off your personality or dress up for an event.  But if you’re really looking for something dramatic and bold to stand out or you just simply don’t have your ears pieced, these cuffs are the perfect accessories.  This new piece of jewelry first made its debut last year on some of the top designer runways, including Thakoon’s 2013 Fall collection.  One of the features of it was the beautiful rich floral leaf cuff that wrapped around the ear to accessorize.  It wasn’t until this year when these bold ear cuffs made it into the trendy and popular side of fashion that we all know.  While you have the bold and dramatic ones that cover your entire ear with jewels and crystals, there are also others that are more modest and simple for people with minimalistic taste.  Either way, just pair your outfit with a gold or brass copper ear cuff and you have the perfect Fall look for the upcoming season! Cuff away!

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Bright in Blazers

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

1 2 34 56

When it comes to clothing, the classic blazer is undeniably my fashion weakness. I’m a sucker for a comfortable, well-tailored blazer to quickly throw on and instantly transform a casual day outfit to a professional and sophisticated look. While the neutral dark shades of blacks, blues and greys have always been the traditional “go-to” colours for blazers, the fresh season of summer is the perfect time to break out of the norm and play around with bright colours and prints. Rather than going for the comfortable, monochromatic shades, opt for the lighter-weight blazers with bold, eye-catching patterns. This timeless piece with a daring twist makes a perfect statement piece to compliment a basic, simple outfit. Keeping it fun, casual and refined for the bright summer days, these coloured blazers are a definite must-have in every girl’s closet!

1. Topshop Pixelated Floral Blazer, $147, available at Nordstrom
