Fall is flying by!

I’ve been MIA from CdC this past month as business has been insanely busy. Being self-employed, there are ups and downs; sometimes business is too slow and other times I’m running a marathon. It’s definitely been the latter lately. I’ve had a multitude of diverse and overlapping projects since my last entry; producing and styling a shoot for Fashion Magazine on fall makeup trends, outfitting new hosts for a television show and their promo shoot, consulting, shopping and putting together looks for the special election night coverage on CBC, wardrobe styling a commercial, styling a photo shoot for a custom holiday magazine and overseeing the creation of a glamorous one-of-a kind gown for one of my clients! Whew, all the while binge watching 5 seasons of Game of Thrones with my husband, I’m addicted I tell ya, addicted. I almost forgot to mention, I also escaped for one weekend with my hubby and hid out in Old Montreal too. What a gorgeous autumn we’re having, the leaves are falling and Christmas is in the air…. …

How To Transition Your Wardrobe Into Fall

Is it ok to wear white jeans after Labour Day? Hell ya! Even though the weather will be getting cooler soon, you can continue to wear some of your favourite summer items. I’ve put together photos for a little inspiration, for how you can style your summer favourites with items you most likely already own in your wardrobe. The last couple of years, fashionistas have been wearing white jeans year round. How to do that without looking inappropriate or out of season? Let the outfits below inspire you. As a general style rule, light colours look best worn on top with darker colours worn on the bottom. That theory is clearly shot here, as each of these outfits manage to break that rule and look amazing. The key is keeping the outfits neutral. Try wearing your white jeans with a loose blazer and oversized sweater with heels for a polished look, a long sweater and over-the-knee boots on the weekend, or style your white jeans with an oversized sweater, wide brim hat and ankle boot. Wearing a sheer maxi skirt in autumn with cosy separates …

Your Fall Fashion Guide

I know, I don’t want to admit it either, but fall is fast approaching. The only consolation for me is that fall is my favourite fashion season. I love the rich colours, textures and layers. But with the multitude of trends on offer this coming season, its a bit difficult to navigate fashion right now. Truth be told, it’s as if everything and anything is trending now; Goth, Victorian, Mod, 70’s, 80’s, bohemian, minimalism, lace, fur, suede, capes, military and more! Runway collections are styled over-the-top, conveying a strong statement to catch the attention of photographers and fashion editors. These theatrical looks don’t always translate well for the real world. I’ve combed through the designer collections, breaking them down to the most wearable styles, to compile a comprehensive guide for you. For each trend, I’ve included two runway, and one real-way examples of how to wear it. I have also put together how to get the look, with shoppable click-throughs. All prices are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise listed. 70’s – Suede, leather/pleather, capes, wide legged pants, denim, patchwork.
