Statement Jewellery May Help You Network

My apologies for the long absence….. seems my day job and life have been keeping me from blogging.  But I’m back and ready to share some insights on some things I’ve observed whist being a more corporate fashionista the last week and a half. I have found myself in numerous situations where there network opportunities…

How to Wear Sequins & Shine

Sequins was a big trend this winter….and it seems to be carrying into spring.  But knowing HOW to wear sequins is a bit tricky.  So I thought I’d dedicate this post to just that! I personally own 5 sequins/shiny items: Copper/silver  chain purse (Aldo)    Black pumps (Guess) Copper/Gold tank-top (INC, Hudson Bay Co.) Gold…

I was fortunate to have met Stefanie Augusteijn a few years ago B.B.B. (Before Becoming a Blogger).  When I moved to midtown Toronto, her boutique SexyPlusClothing was walking distance for me when it was located just south of Rosedale subway station on Yonge St.  I’ve picked up a few coveted pieces from her shop in the past,…
