Fashion Jobs – The New Dressy

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

ST95-ADS

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

ST95-ADS

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 – Blue Jean Baby: Denim Dresses for the Office

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

ST95-ADS

denimdressinspiration

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, you can easily mix any given denim piece with other fabrics and textures to create a variety of different looks and moods. A looser, streamlined denim dress can look surprisingly sleek on its own, and a more frayed style will give you a gritty, urban feel – a far cry from the Canadian tuxedo. Almost as famous as the relationship itself, the world will never forget the denim gown Britney Spears wore in 2000 when she and Justin Timberlake first publicly acknowledged their rumoured romance. With any luck, your own denim dress will be just as memorable.

Fashion Jobs – White Blazers the Right Way

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

ST95-ADS

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 – Keeping Cool in The Office

ST95-ADS oliviap

Dressing for the office in hot weather can become a challenge when faced with the question “is this office appropriate?” I often want to stay cool and comfortable in the heat but ensure I am maintaining a professional appearance. Finding clothing made with fabrics such as cotton, linen or silk can make a huge difference in cooling you down. I have rounded up some of my favorite pieces that are sure to keep you cool this summer.

Fashion Jobs – Summer Suede

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

ST95-ADSSuede is one of my absolute favourite trends for summer. It is coming back in a huge way, right in time for music festival season! I think that with such a bold trend, less is definitely more. I love to pair a suede skirt with a plain white t-shirt and sneakers, or a suede crop top with my favourite boyfriend jeans and slides. Many pieces can also carry through into fall as they often come in deep browns and greens, and a great pair of booties can always be incorporated into your wardrobe. This trend is really great if you plan on heading to any festivals because it looks very relaxed and seventies-inspired. While there are plenty of beautiful, authentic suede pieces available, many shops do a great job with faux-suede as well (TopShop is my personal favourite for this).

Fashion Jobs – Style Nine to Five’s 5 Year Anniversary

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

 

IMG_8291

One of the best days of my life, that’s for sure! Style Nine to Five celebrates five years with some of our favourite media, influencers, bloggers and friends. Put on by Sparkle Media and held at Leah Alexandra Jewelry’s loft style studio in Gastown, the atmosphere was elegant, soft and pretty complete with cake, cocktails, white balloons, candles and gold cutlery.

I founded the first ever fashion job board in Canada in 2010, and my goal has always been to help job seekers find their dream job. Style Nine to Five works with over 500 fashion employers (including Hudson’s Bay, Topshop, Coach, Lululemon, Le Chateau, independent boutiques on Queen Street, many designers) and has recently expanded to the NYC market.

Fashion Jobs – Kickin’ Mules

If you are looking for a transferable piece of footwear, that isn’t anything like you already own, then purchasing a pair of mules is exactly what you need.

Mules are an easy to wear shoe that will look good with most of the trends for spring. They will look especially great with menswear inspired pants and fitted blazers. What makes the mule truly versatile is the fact that it can be worn in both a heel and flat style. It is entirely up to you how dressy  or causal you want to look when you wear this shoe. This fact also makes the mule a perfect addition to your work wardrobe. The mule is available in a multitude of colours and styles, and can even sport a chunky or slim heel.

Since we are hoping the worst of winter is over, it’s a great time to start thinking about updating our spring wardrobe and mules are a must-have addition for the warmer months.

 

1. ALDO Frida, $90.00

2. Jeffrey Campbell Ft. Collins Slingback Mule, $170, available at Urban Outfitters

3. Call it Spring Niederman, $50

4. Free People Joanie Cut Out Shoe, $163

5. Unique Heeled Mule Shoe, $70, available at Topshop

6. Stella McCartney Wooden-Hell Convertible-Mule Pump, Rose, $881, available at Neiman Marcus

Fashion Jobs – Ice Skating Attire

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Exams have wrapped up, the holidays are officially in full swing and that means taking advantage of all the festive activities we could possibly fit into our schedule. No matter if you’re baking cookies or building snowmen, the magic of the holiday season is upon us and it’s best to greet it with our most stylish yet comfortable attire. One of my favorite holiday activities is ice skating, there is something so fun and romantic about the old winter pass time. Whether you’re wobbling your way through the rink or landing a double axel we want you to look your absolute best. Take a note from the pros and throw on a pair of leggings, the comfortable go-to pant allows you to move around freely, while still looking stylish (for extra style points, opt for a printed pair). My policy on outdoor winter activities is the more the merrier, so throw on the hat, mittens, scarf, chunky socks and any other warm up accessory before hitting the rink. It’s not every day that you can get away with wearing multiple accessories, so have fun with it, mix and match your favorite pieces to create a unique look that will have you stand out in the crowd, and not just because of your killer skate tricks.
