Fashion Jobs Vancouver – Chic Stocking Stuffers

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

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

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

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

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

I remember watching old episodes of Beverly Hills 90210, and making fun of their horrible style choices. Neon colours and high waisted cut offs? yuck… but as of late I’ve been singing to a different tune. All the fun of the early 90’s is back, (ok not all, but that’s a good thing) and better than ever. We’ve seen the bright colours, geometric shapes, and the biggest trend of them all, high waisted cut offs. With their cool, stylish demeanor, everyone has been rocking them this summer, including me. They’re fun and super easy to accessorize. With a wide variety of colours and patterns, this summer trend will have you showing off your stems all season long.

1. American Eagle high rise festival shortie $28
2. H&M short shorts $35
3. Forever 21 Destroyed Denim cut off $23.80

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Muscle Mania

Monday, July 15th, 2013

If the thought of exposing your stomach this season (à la the crop top) makes you shudder, why not show off your biceps instead? As the shirt of choice for gym-goers in the eighties, the comfy muscle tee has re-emerged as one of Summer 2013’s hottest trends. Not to be confused with the “wife beater,” the muscle tee is loose, baggy and perfectly exudes a rocker-chic cool vibe. Featuring ventilation-friendly dropped armholes, it is the perfect t-shirt style to wear during the months when temperatures are sweltering.

With graphic prints being another popular style for the season, you can easily sport two trends at once with a graphic-print muscle tee. From edgy skulls to adorable cartoon characters, the possibilities are endless. However, before you decide to jump on the muscle-tee bandwagon there are a few things to keep in mind. To avoid looking sloppy make sure to pair your muscle tee with a more structured bottom, such as high-waisted shorts or a body-hugging pencil skirt. If you want to further dress up your outfit, try adding bold accessories such as a statement necklace or stacked bracelets.

1.) Nasty Gal Paradise City Muscle Tee, $67.98
2.) Nasty Gal Painted Skull Muscle Tee, $67.98
3.) Nasty Gal Lipstick Muscle Tee, $29.29
4.) Corner Shop Elephant Muscle Tee, $29, available at Urban Outfitters
5.) Evil Twin Virtual Insanity Muscle Tunic, $70, available at Urban Outfitters
6.) Tobi Faded Love Tank Top, $36
7.) Chaser The Empire State Muscle Tee in White, $47.45, available at Karmaloop
8.) Forever 21 Cutout Minnie Mouse Muscle Tee, $16.80

Fashion Jobs in Canada – Beach Cover Ups

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

coverup1 coverup2 coverup3 coverup4 coverup5coverup6

One of my favorite pastimes (along with everyone else in the world) is hitting up the beach. There is nothing better than lying out and relaxing at the beach or by your pool, but not everyone wants to frolick around in an itsy bitsy bikini all day long. Whether you’re heading to a pool party or just hanging out in the sand, it’s always best to have a cute cover up so you’re not showing all the goods, all the time –no one wants to be that girl-. The sexy rompers, dresses and tanks designed specifically for sunny days at the beach give you a chance to show off your sexy style in a modest way.
The next time you head out for a fun day at the beach or by the pool, try pairing your bathing suit with a stylish cover up that will have heads turning for all the right reasons.

1. Arie lace romper $31.73
2. Forever 21 Kimono cover up $17.80
3. Free People Canada, rave on tunic $132.37
4. Victorias Secret Linen beaded cover up sweater $98
5. Roxy Love and sunshine maxi dress $58
6. Roxy on the horizon cover up $48

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Denim to In-Vest in

Friday, June 28th, 2013

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

My absolute favorite trend of this season is the denim vest. Although I can never get enough of my go-to jean jacket that I wear with everything, a denim vest is the perfect lightweight alternative for the summer months.

It’s a great layering piece that is extremely versatile and can add a touch of edginess to practically any outfit. Try wearing a denim vest over a colourful maxi dress, printed shorts and tank top, or cropped jeans and a graphic tee for a chic and casual look. A denim vest also looks great contrasted against a simple black sundress or an all-white ensemble (especially white lace!)

Stores such as Forever 21 currently carry a large selection of denim vests in variety of hues (from washed-out to super-dark) and styles (motorcycle, cropped, oversized etc.). Don’t be afraid to branch out of your comfort zone this summer and try a vest that isn’t your typical light-blue denim. Try ombre, coloured or patterned denim, or a denim vest with hardware features such as studs, spikes, and rhinestones. You can even DIY your own denim vest at home by cutting the sleeves off an old jean jacket and adding a variety of embellishments!

1. Levi’s Denim Trucker Vest, $68, available at Urban Outfitters
2. Nasty Gal Badlands Denim Vest, $68.22
3. Forever 21 Floral Studded Denim Vest, $35.80
4. Forever 21 Spiked Denim Vest, $33.80
5. Love Culture Acid Cropped Denim Vest, $34.90
6. Forever 21 Bejeweled Utility Vest, $35.80
7. Tobi Cotton Candy Denim Vest, $69
8. Free People Macramé Cargo Vest, $120.47, available at Revolve Clothing
