Hi Friends!! Today is actually MY BIRTHDAY!!!
Yep, I’m a September baby – woot! woot!
I’ve gotta admit …. this year I’m feeling a bit of the birthday blues … and NOT in a sad, depressing kinda way 😉
Have you noticed many shades of blue have been incorporated into Fall Runway Shows and magazines lately? Blues are often a very flattering colour on every skin tone and silhouette. With almost every shade of blue out there this season …Today we are talking about: Blue Hues!
I hope you’ve been following my series in collaboration with Cassie from Style Cassentials. We’re discussing fall trends this week – if you missed any of my previous posts I’ll list them at the end of this one…so you can get yourself caught up 🙂
This gorgeous royal blue & white Nouveau bodycon dress was sent to me by a delightful online boutique called VoluptousGirlz … and as you can see, it fit me like a golve!
The length of this dress is perfect …giving me a professional look from the front, with the helpful pattern distracting from my tummy. And then when I turn around – BAM!
….Super sexy deep-v in the back!
I have to admit …when I received this dress I was a bit nervous of how low the deep-v really was. There was no way I was going braless!
I found by wearing a thin white cami underneath not only did it solve the hide-the-bra issue, but also created more smoothness for the rest of the dress to lay flater against my body overall.
The Nouveau dress from VoluptuousGirlz Boutique; white & gold bib + gold drop earrings from Aldo Accessories; glossy grey pumps from Hudson Bay Co.; vintage bracelets from spring’s Toronto Vintage Clothing Show; and finally the purse – I cannot remember friends, sorry.
From all of the birthday promotions from my favourite stores filling up my inbox all month long, it is clear that blues are a definite haute colour this Fall. How are you going to rock the blue hues from your closets this Fall? Tell me all about your plans in the comment section below…
While my look is a bit more Va-va-va-voom, Cassie combines fall neutrals like ivory and caramel with a long flowy navy maxi skirt for a laid-back look. Head over to Style Cassentials for all the details on how Cassie has styled the trends. Or visit her on Facebook here. Me likee!
