This is another leopard print dress from Joe Fresh. This one is on sale and under $20. You’re welcome.

I styled it two ways just by changing out the footwear. The first was with over the knee boots.

The second was with a classic pair of black heels. Simple and easy.

I rarely wear an asymmetric dress – let alone an asymmetric midi dress. I have an hourglass shape and asymmetric dresses make me look like a lumpy potato or at least that’s how I feel. This asymmetric midi dress from Marks and Spencer isn’t like any asymmetric dress I’ve tried.

Signature by Reitmans blazer and top

Let me introduce you to Signature by Reitmans (found here). Why am I being so formal? Well this collection needs to be enjoyed and a little formality helps with the excitement I have for it!! I have partnered with Reitmans for this post to style my own Signature pieces for the upcoming holiday season.

Signature by Reitmans is a specially curated collection of elevated party wear, designed for all of the celebrations the holiday season brings. It’s a mix of dresses, ornate party tops, accessories plus the BEST velvet blazer I have found (and trust me I have been looking).

Signature by Reitmans top and blazer

The colour options in this collection of party tops is wonderful – from bold pinks and reds to subtle blacks and silver there is a colour for everyone. I chose this gold top with subtle hints of silver and gold because of how versatile it is. I can pair it with black pants, jeans or a beautiful pencil skirt. It can also be worn from desk to dinner – holiday ready for any office party.

Reitmans Pants

I kept accessories and shoes in classic black. This black sparkly cuff is also from the Signature collection. These black pants are the perfect cigarette pant. I have already paired them with many things in my closet and get ready for them to be on repeat in my life and on this blog. They are TALL but I know they come in regular and petite.

Reitmans Sparkly Cuff

This velvet blazer is perfect for so many reasons. Let me list a few for you:

  • – The velvet is super soft
  • – There is no pesky button, how many times do we really button our blazers?
  • – Great length for tall girls like me or any other girl for that matter
  • – The cut of the blazer is wonderful, enough structure to keep it classic. This is hard to achieve with velvet

The holiday season can be stressful and expensive. Signature by Reitmans offers beautiful clothing at prices that will have you celebrating all season long.

statement sleeves

An easy trend for all women to wear is a statement sleeve. There are so many options available. I love this Joseph Ribkoff top because of the beautiful crocheted sleeve and the fact that it is off the shoulder. All women have beautiful shoulders and why not show them off once in a while?

DH3 Mark's Jeans

How many times have you purchased ripped jeans and when you kneel they rip even more and create an ugly knee affect? These Mark’s jeans have such great stretch that the threads stretch too and no extra ripping!!

These are some of the best leggings I have. I first wore them during a Hudson’s Bay Shopping Event I co-hosted. They are thick and long and great for these cooler temperatures. I paired them with this jailhouse stripes blouse and over the knee boots. Casual in black and white.

Olive skirt, wine coloured coat and print blouse

I am really enjoying wearing this olive skirt. Olive is a great neutral. It pairs with other neutrals like black, navy blue or cream. Plus it is a great complimentary colour to my favourite colour of the season wine (pairs great with pink too).

A few weeks ago I was invited by LOFT to shop their store and style an outfit. I had told myself  that I wouldn’t get any more blazers but after seeing this plaid one I decided one more blazer – a plaid blazer.

I threw back to the 70s and decided to really go for the look – okay more of an updated 70s look. I did a dark flared denim and “pilgrim” style shoe but somehow it still looks and feels fresh.

Alfred Sung is an iconic Canadian designer. His latest line Sung (look book here) fuses fashion and comfort, getting you from desk to dinner quite easily. My partnership with Mark’s continues to excite me when I get to feature easy to wear pieces in the most fashionable way created by Alfred Sung. With cool temperatures here I love to layer thin knits to keep cozy.

Long layers pair well with leggings (here) and over the knee boots for an elevated casual look. This cardigan (here) comes in my favourite shade of wine – a nice way to break up an all black outfit.

The video below takes you through the latest collection and highlights key trends and key pieces.

We all have those great pieces of clothing we wear that others love as much as we do. This floral bomber jacket is one of them. Whenever I wear it I get asked about it at least once every half hour. Now this bomber is as close to perfection as one could get.

Pairing it with all black is the easiest way to make the entire outfit about this floral bomber. Honestly, when the jacket is this amazing why wouldn’t you? It looks great with denim but don’t worry I’ll be showing you how great it looks with a dress too. Stay tuned for some more great looks featuring this bomber.

If you have been a long time reader you know that I have good hair. It’s thick and grows quickly. It can hold a curl and I don’t have to wash it for at least 3 day. The texture of my hair has been off lately though. I went back to blonde in and spent my summer in Croatia where there was a heat wave and my hair paid the price, especially the hair on my forehead and around my crown. It’s coarse and there is lots of damage. That means it doesn’t feel thick and doesn’t look great.

I’ve used Viviscal (here) in the past with great results. My hair was thicker, texture smoothed out and all was fixed. Once we have fixed issues we think they are finished and stop using products. Then when the same issues re-appear we go back to the solution because we know it works. So here I am using Viviscal again but this time with a complete line of products from Viviscal, the Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range and as well the Viviscal Extra Strength supplements, which I was previously using (link here for the entire range).

Partnering with Vivscal to counter hair damage was a no brainer. What I didn’t expect was to try their new Densifying Gorgeous Growth range which includes a Shampoo, Conditioner and Elixir. The entire product wetline was delivered and I was excited to try it but also apprehensive. I don’t have a lot of luck with shampoos. Most of them leave my hair very oily and slick. I’ve tried so many and only a handful work on my hair. The Densifying Gorgeous Growth Shampoo has a subtle smell, cleans very well and doesn’t leave my hair oily. The Densifying Gorgeous Growth Conditioner on my hair was a soft conditioner. I needed to use more then a quarter size for my hair. It doesn’t over condition for me and my oily hair was “dryer” then before. This was a welcome change.

The third part of the hair application process was the Densifying Gorgeous Growth Elixir. After you towel dry your hair you pump 1 or 2 (I used 2) drops into your hand and apply to towel dry hair. The Densifying Elixir smells really nice and left my hair smooth especially after styling.

Now I can’t forget about the Viviscal Extra Strength hair vitamin supplements. The results with the tablets was great. I had new hair growth around my crown and my hair felt thicker and again my hair dresser. The extra time in the salon chair proved it. The range and supplements work as a unique dual-action system, so you can achieve healthy hair growth from the inside, and thicker looking hair on the outside!

The added bonus was that my nails are stronger and are growing like bananas!! I’ve been asked already if my nails are fake. My nails were weak and split all the time. I have tried everything over the years and nothing worked until now. Now my nails are strong and I can grow them no problem.

I would recommend the Viviscal Densifying product line for those who are experiencing hair loss, thinning hair or hair that is changing due to the aging process. You hair and nails will thank you.

You can buy the Viviscal Densifying Gorgeous Growth Product line and the Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Supplements at Shoppers Drug Mart.
