Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Airport Travel Style

Friday, June 21st, 2013

It’s that time of the year again, the season of flights and destinations all around. We’ve all been there before, the long tedious line-ups, the security checks and of course the strenuous bumpy plane rides. Flight travels can be weary and tiring, that’s why it’s always important to dress prepared for the unexpected conditions while travelling. The airport style is all about the oversized, chunky sweater, loose-fitted tank, large handbag tote, comfortable flats and light scarf to give an effortlessly comfortable look while still looking trendy during your long flight. In the end, after the long hours of waiting and pulling the weight of your luggage, believe me, it’s all worth it when you finally step out of the plane and arrive to your destination of travel.

3. Longchamp Derby Tote, $450, available at Nordstrom

Fashion Careers – Swimwear Trends

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Tired of seeing those typical bikinis and one piece bathing suits that scream boring and no creativity to them? The catwalks push the limits and I have happy to say that this summer swimwear is taking a leap into an exciting new direction. I live for the sun and palm trees where a book and a nice tall iced tea is all I need to spend a day soaking up some rays. Known for my simple strapless teeny weeny bikinis, for the very first time, I am willing to risk getting funny tan lines for the sake of fashion! This season patterns, unique cuts and exquisite materials are all the rage from designers all over. A true fashionista would not know where to begin when choosing this summer’s top looks – there are just too many to choose from. Clearly bringing just two or three bathing suits on vacation is WAY over rated!

1) H&M Bandeau with Tooth Pendant, $34.95
2) Urban Outfitters Minimale Animal, $288.00
3) Free People Daisy Crochet Bikini Top, $90.66
4) Anthropologie Marysia Molokai Swimsuit, $285.00

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Summer Acccessories

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Summer time is the one season you are truly able to express your individual style without having to cover up with layers upon layers of winter garb (since Canada really only has two seasons). Whether your style is bohemian, glam or vintage, we all share one common ground, accessories. There is no better way to express your true style than with a few fun pieces and this summer, we have plenty to choose from. One fashion crime that many people commit –I’ll admit I’ve done it too- is adding way too many accessories to your outfit. People shouldn’t hear you coming from a mile away, so remember what your mother always told you, and always take two pieces off before leaving the door. Adding a simple statement necklace or a headpiece to your outfit could defiantly take your look from ordinary to extraordinary without all the extra baggage. So this summer, have fun with your look by mixing and matching some of the season’s hottest trends in jewelry.

1. Forever 21 Colour blocked pyramid bracelet $6.80
2. Forever 21 Cut out filigree cuff $5.80
3. H&M Hair decoration $6.95
4. Urban Outfitters Sunrise geo necklace $18
5. H&M Necklace $14.95
6. Sweet Harriet Golden bowtie necklace $31.39

Calgary Fashion Jobs – Summer Workout Gear

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Summer time always seems to sneak up on us, especially when it comes to our diets and workout routines. Before we know it, its bikini season and we’re still trying to shed those pesky holiday pounds. It’s been said that purchasing active wear that you love, will motivate you to hit the gym or participate in some seasonal outdoor activities. If you’re anything like me, you want to look cute no matter what the activity is, even if you’re just hitting the gym, so why not opt for some cute workout wear that will get you up and off the couch and looking adorable.
When purchasing workout wear, we tend to hit the obvious sporting good stores, which could get a little pricey. Many of our favourite retail brands also sell active wear for a fraction of the cost of any sporting good company –and are sometimes much cuter too. Check out stores like American Eagle, Forever 21, or H&M for pieces that will help you look fabulous all the way to the beach.

1. Forever 21 colour blocked workout tank, $11.80
2. Forever 21 tribal print skinny workout pants, $23.80
3. American Eagle French terry midi short, $25.92
4. American Eagle Factory striped favourite tee, $12.44
5. H&M Sports Top, $14.95
6. H&M Sports Shorts, $14.95

Calgary Fashion Jobs – Summer Lace

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

 

Lace traditionally embodies an overtly feminine aesthetic, but recently the fabric has become much more wearable, casual, and even edgy. For summer, it has showed up on everything from maxi-dresses, to crop tops and shorts, amplified by modern accents like scalloped edges or laser cutouts. No longer reserved for girlish glamour, the trend now takes on a more subversive vibe. Take a cue from Kate Bosworth, who rocked a head-to-toe white lace look at this season’s Coachella festivities. Minimally accessorized with ankle boots and aviators, the style muse looks equal parts boho and nouveau. Shop my favourite summer ready pieces below.

1. Style Inspiration, Kate Bosworth at Coachella, image via style.com
2. Free People Scalloped Lace Skort, $79.77
3. ASOS Love Lace Skirt and Crop Top, $52.40 and $48.90

Camping season is upon us – it is the perfect opportunity to escape the bustling city and revel in the great outdoors. When packing for a weekend getaway, try to only bring the necessities.

Make sure to bring a rain coat just in case the unspeakable happens so you can still have a good time. Say hi to mother nature for me!

Fashion Jobs – Weekend Away: Country Vs. City

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

I’m always inspired by Joe Zee’s posts for ELLE – he has an intuitive and witty approach to styling various occasions’ different ways. His outfits cover everything from baseball games, to first interviews or mom time, which got me thinking about how to style various activities for Summer. In the coming months, long weekends compose many of our mini escapes, and whether a weekend away means jetting to New York, Toronto, or Seattle, or hitting your country cottage or cabin, you will inevitably want to compose a look that meets the needs of your chosen locale. I’ve dreamed up two juxtaposing ensembles for two disparate trips – one for the sightseeing city vacation, and the other for country living. See my picks for each respective jaunt to ensure you are one happy camper, or happy city dweller.

Fashion Jobs – 20’s Cinematic Style: The Great Gatsby

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Flapper girls adorned in embellished gowns to the nines, alongside rich vintage accessories, gallivanting with ease over some popped bubbly. Envision yourself amongst the party crowd, as the eye of the man of the hour himself, Gatsby. This coming Friday, May 10, it’s time to hold your own elaborate affair behind the screen, and join the talents of Leonardo Dicaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton as they recreate the classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gastby. The compelling tale unveils both love and tragedy, luring us to time travel back to wealth in the 20’s. Just when you thought your star gazed eyes couldn’t get any wider…it’s in 3D.

Costume designer, Catherine Martin, selected 40 stunning vintage Miu Miu and Prada cocktail designs from the time, which are on exhibition to the public at Prada flagship stores in New York, Tokyo and Shanghai until mid-July. Jewelry and headpieces were custom designed by the one company who best represents the films royal ora best, Tiffany & Co.

Here’s how to play a more formal version of dress up, to wear to a movie night out with your girlfriends, or a media screening party. Top one of them off with an elegant headpiece and Mary Jane pumps, and they’ll be more eyes on you than Leonardo (if that’s at all possible).

Calgary Fashion Jobs – Beads Galore

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

When summer time rolls around, I find that everyone tends to get a little Mediterranean, especially now that the bohemian trend has marked its territory in the fashion world. We’ve seen the braids, the maxi skirts, the head pieces, and now beaded clothing.

Beading is a huge part of Mediterranean culture, it adds a touch of whimsy and makes a piece more interesting to look at. This past fashion week season, many collections featured some beading accents. From H&M to Valentino, this trend proved its diversity from casual to formal wear and I absolutely adore it.
