Fashion Jobs – Keeping Cool in The Office

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

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



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

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014








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

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.



1. Luxe geo legging, $12.80, Forever 21

2. Topshop graffic graffiti legging $36, Hudson’s Bay

3. Touch of glam fingerless gloves $12.80, Forever 21

4. Tie dye feather print infinity scarf $9.95, Zumiez

5. AEO cozy open knit scarf $22.20, American eagle

6. AEO wild beanie $10.13, American eagle

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

Canada Fashion Jobs – Fall Colour Palette

Thursday, August 15th, 2013



Screen shot 2013-08-15 at 10.10.16 AMScreen shot 2013-08-15 at 10.12.39 AM



Typically by this time in mid-August, a couple of noticeable changes start to appear, weather wise. It’s no longer warm enough at night to go jacketless, and there’s a distinct chill in the air in the mornings. Summer is on its way out, and Fall is here to slowly take over. With that, comes a new colour palette for fashion and design; we tend towards more muted, yet rich colours like burgandys, greys and taupes, leaving the eclectic summer colours behind.

This Fall, there are a number of stand-out colours that will perfectly fit into your seasonal wardrobe. From rich emerald green, to mauve hues and rust coloured browns, this season’s palette is all about richness and depth of colour.

1. Cadence Crop Tank, $39.75, available at Nasty Gal

2. Free People We The Free Solid Peplum Top, $59.75

3. Free People Nightgale Dress, $142.12

4. Aritzia Wilfred Free Iman Dress, $165

5. Faux Leather Skirt, $69.90, available at Zara

6. Jersey H Varsity Bomber Jacket, $45, available at TOPSHOP

Fashion Jobs – Stand Out Sunnies

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013




Sunglasses are a girl’s best friend in sunny weather, and while the classic aviator, wayfarer, or Audrey Hepburn styles are always flattering choices that complement any ensemble, sometimes you want to step outside the box. If you think it’s time to stand out with your summer accessories, try a bolder look with bright colours, off-kilter designs, and unusual lenses. After all, fortune favours the brave, even if today brave means donning some futuristic shades that are out of this world.

1. Scarlette Butterfly Shade, $145, available at NastyGal

2. Prada PR 60OS Sunglasses, $540, available at Sunglass Hut

3. ASOS Handmade Cat Eye Sunglasses with Wavy Highbrow, $26.75

4. Chevron Revo Sunglasses, £16, available at Topshop

5. DSquared2 Black Gold 59 Sunglasses, $149, available at ClearlyContacts

6. Oliver People’s Sunglasses, $440, available at Holt Renfrew

Calgary Fashion Jobs – Denim of Summer

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013






There is one trend we have seen virtually every season for decades, it is constantly reinvented and has been altered to suit annual trends. Care to guess which one I am talking about? If you guessed denim then you already know that this material has played a prominent role in the fashion world for years.  We all have a pair of jeans we can’t get rid of, and we have all worn denim in some way, shape or form. Lately, this classic material has been all over the place, we’ve seen it in the form of skinnies, cut offs, shirts and vests even during the hot summer season. So which denim trends should you take on this summer?

1. The denim jacket- a wardrobe staple, this jacket makes us long for chilly summer nights. Elizabeth and James denim jacket $276, available at  Net-a-porter

2. Denim skirt- I know what you’re thinking, you haven’t worn a denim skirt since the 90s, but this ladylike twist on denim has made a come back. Paired with a lacy top, you’ll be setting trends in no time. TopShop Moto bleach spot denim skirt $30

3. Overalls- It seems like we’re trying to relive our childhood this summer, this one piece denim cover-up even has designers buckling themselves in. Free People Washed denim overall $153

4. Denim shirt- These shirts have been popping up left and right, paired with coloured skinnies or shorts, this shirt gives a cool twist to the Calgary Tuxedo. American Eagle Western shirt $31

5. Cut offs- These jeans are probably the hottest trend right now. I’ve been seeing them on celebrities and fashionistas alike this summer. Forever 21 Baja denim cut offs $17

6. The classic pair of jeans- you can never go wrong with a flattering pair of classic jeans. American Eagle Skinny crop jean $31
