The Olympics may be over, but that doesn’t mean Canada’s golden haul has to stop there.  These metallic items will set you apart from the pack and give your outfits a punch. Rock these gilded pieces loud and proud, and although you might not have an Olympic medal yourself, you’ll surely be standing on top of the fashion podium.

 

For a casual look, pair gold clothing with dark neutrals and let the shine stand out. You can also pack a punch with some golden accessories, piling on the jewellery or with a statement metallic shoe or bag. On the other side of the coin, for something more formal, step out in a statement gold dress for a winning night out.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – All Cuffed Up

The sweet summer season is all about the bright, bold coloured accessories filled with jewel tones and pastels.  While that is the classic staple for summer accessories, the season of Fall calls for something slightly different and when I say different, I mean really different!  Earrings are always a great piece of jewelry to wear to show off your personality or dress up for an event.  But if you’re really looking for something dramatic and bold to stand out or you just simply don’t have your ears pieced, these cuffs are the perfect accessories.  This new piece of jewelry first made its debut last year on some of the top designer runways, including Thakoon’s 2013 Fall collection.  One of the features of it was the beautiful rich floral leaf cuff that wrapped around the ear to accessorize.  It wasn’t until this year when these bold ear cuffs made it into the trendy and popular side of fashion that we all know.  While you have the bold and dramatic ones that cover your entire ear with jewels and crystals, there are also others that are more modest and simple for people with minimalistic taste.  Either way, just pair your outfit with a gold or brass copper ear cuff and you have the perfect Fall look for the upcoming season! Cuff away!

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Bright in Blazers

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

1 2 34 56

When it comes to clothing, the classic blazer is undeniably my fashion weakness. I’m a sucker for a comfortable, well-tailored blazer to quickly throw on and instantly transform a casual day outfit to a professional and sophisticated look. While the neutral dark shades of blacks, blues and greys have always been the traditional “go-to” colours for blazers, the fresh season of summer is the perfect time to break out of the norm and play around with bright colours and prints. Rather than going for the comfortable, monochromatic shades, opt for the lighter-weight blazers with bold, eye-catching patterns. This timeless piece with a daring twist makes a perfect statement piece to compliment a basic, simple outfit. Keeping it fun, casual and refined for the bright summer days, these coloured blazers are a definite must-have in every girl’s closet!

1. Topshop Pixelated Floral Blazer, $147, available at Nordstrom
2. Rag & Bone ‘Jefferson’ Contrast Panel Blazer, $232, available at Nordstrom
3. Nasty Gal Power Play Blazer, $78
4. Jenni Kayne Shawl Blazer, $326, available at ShopBop
5. Sea Leather Insert Blazer, $305, available at ShopBop
6. Zara wide Stripe Blazer, $69

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Summer Blazers

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

In the summer we tend to pare down on our clothing layers. High temperatures lead to simpler outfits that don’t involve so many heat-trapping pieces. While we want to stay cool and collected, there are still occasions where we are required to wear a jacket that either cover up our shoulders or provides some structure to our outfit. Summer outwear is the perfect way to round out your office wardrobe, protect from the elements or top off an evening look. Pick blazers made with light fabric and consider choosing something bright to make your outfit really pop.

3. BCBG MAX AZRIA Metallic Blazer, $258

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Peplums Are Pretty

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Designers like Stella McCartney, Giambattista Valli, Marc Jacobs, and Proenza Schouler embraced peplums in 2011, and this feminine shape is sure to be a major trend heading into spring. Celebrities like Emma Stone and Jennifer Hudson have flocked to peplum dresses for walking the red carpet, but this curve-loving style is also easy to wear during the day. Just choose a peplum top! Thankfully this trend is flattering on all figures, because the hourglass silhouette can both camouflage a tummy and highlight a teeny waist. Try a flowy blouse for a subtle take on the trend, or choose a more structured fabric for a high-impact look.

1. Parker Strapless Top, $130, available at Shopbop

2. Marni Contrast-Trimmed Silk-Blend Top, $227, available at OUTNET

3. Colourblack Peplum Top, $22, available at Forever 21

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Girl Crush: Eleonora Carisi

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

It’s true that there are a plethora of impeccably dressed women who are captured on the streets by many seasoned fashion bloggers, but few are as bold and amusing as today’s subject Eleonora Carisi. Not only does she own her own über trendy store (This is Maze), she is also a fashion blogger, stylist, and everyday wonder woman. And while it’s not always easy to pull off that undone-yet-very-chic look, it’s clear that Carisi has it down to a science.

With her in mind, I’ve rounded up a small selection that reflects Carisi’s effortless and confident approach to dressing. From an indispensable pair of sunglasses to a ridiculously sexy skirt, see how you can inject some Carisi flair into your daily mix.

My inspiration shot of Eleonora is from The Sartorialist.

2. Pour La Victoire Black Pumps, $295
