Winter Trends: Velvet

Here we are: the last Thursday of December …. the LAST THURSDAY OF 2016!!!  

All month long PPMeow! teamed-up with StyleCassentials to bring you another collaboration featuring some of the Winter Trends for 2016 Holiday Season!!!

To wrap up our December long series we’re putting our own spin on wearing VELVET!

As luxurious as velvet it… I’ve stayed away from it so far, as I just haven’t found a piece that I liked myself in. :/

The velvet slip dress was the “IT” item this Fall.  So I kept an eye out for one that might work for me and my bod.  I ordered one from ASOS way back at the beginning of this month – but it has never bothered to arrive. :/

And then I found this one on the Forever21+ Instagram page:

Remember Carrie Bradshaw’s “the naked dress” from SATC?   That’s basically how I felt when I first tried this dress on upon its arrival in my mail. 😮

This dress has a fantastic hemline, with a bit of ruching in the mid-section to help mask any tummy troubles from that 2nd helping of dinner or in my case a cheese fondu party.

I didn’t feel comfortable having the ta-tas all out-and-about in this brown/pink curve-hugging velvety frock for holiday house parties among married and coupled-off friends.

Sooooooo I wore a thin long-sleeved band tee underneath it + sheer hosiery + mid-calf length black boots … and BAM!

Holiday Ready rocking this Winter Trend! ❤

I’ve styled this velvet dress in 3 different ways throughout December …. which way do you like it best?

How I Got The Look:  Velvet slip dress, Forever21+; Bomber stripped jacket, Old Navy; Boney M tee, super old from my radio days; Black mid-calf boots, Steps

Cassie is wearing this high neck, long-sleeved grey velvet frock….with a little cutout.  Her gold accessories, purse and strappy shoes really add to her overall glamorous look!

Winter Trends: Sparkle

Christmas is THIS WEEKEND….woohooo!!!! ❤  Hope you’ve been following our December long series!!!

What series? Well…

PPMeow! has teamed-up with StyleCassentials to bring you another collaboration featuring some of the Winter Trends for 2016 Holiday Season!!!

Today’s we’re gonna show you how to make SPARKLE apart of your Winter wardrobe for holiday happens friends! 😉


I found this tri-coloured layered sequins pencil skirt on the Forever21+ website way back in November and ordered it right away.

Originally I was going to pair this skirt with a satin, off-one-shoulder top, creating an extra dramatic look. As great as a dramatic looks can be, I really didn’t have anywhere go this year that required an over-the-top look like that. :/

I really wanted to make use of this sparkle winter trend more than just a “special occasion” piece.

So I decided to pair it with a variety of warm winter sweaters to create more wearable looks.

I went with a light-weight, black turtle neck…with little button details on the sleeves and black booties.

Couldn’t you totally see yourself wearing this to a house-party…possibly even wear it all day at the office with afterwork cocktails on the agenda. 😉

If you wanted to amp up the sexy – ditch the turtleneck look – and go with a sweater that has a lower neckline and pop of colour!   I especially love this purple sweater with bow-tie-neck, which basically makes me look like a sparkly present. ❤

How I Got The Look: Sequins pencil skirt & purple bow-tie sweater, Forever21+; Black turtleneck, Mark’s Work Warehouse; Black booties, Payless

Cassie went with this adorable shiny striped number with gingerbread doll purse and black booties!  I love pink & purple hues in holiday wear! ❤

Head over to Style Cassentials for all the details on Cassie’s winter trend of sparkle in her outfit.  Or her Instagram here. Or visit her Facebook page here.

 

Stay tuned as we got ONE MORE THURSDAY LEFT in December!!!   See how we’ve put our own unique twists on popular Winter Trends this year.

We hope they are bring you some fashion inspiration to try yourself this month!

Winter Trends: Gold

Here we go – Post #2 in our December long series!!!

PPMeow! has teamed-up with StyleCassentials to bring you another collaboration featuring some of the Winter Trends for 2016 Holiday Season!!!

Today’s we’re gonna show you how to make GOLD apart of your Winter wardrobe for holiday happens friends! 😉 

You know when you see something online and you bond with it instantly. ❤

Buuuuut its out of stock or “coming soon”.  And your heart breaks and continues to yearn for that coveted piece?

Yah…well that was exactly what happened when I met the Sequin Bonded Pique Dress by Eloquii.  So, I put my name on their waiting list …. And then one fateful day,  it arrived at my door.  Wheeee!!

And everything was happiness, kittens and rainbows again!!! ❤

This sculpted skirt styled with a flash of gold sequins along the skirt just adds the WOW factor to this oh-so comfortable to wear, with its fit and flare nature.

If this dress is “Red Carpet refinement” – as it was seen worn by gold medalist Michelle Carter to the 68th Emmy Awards – then it certainly was gonna turn some heads at a Company Holiday Party!!

This pleated shiny gold skirt is just gorgeous.  And that perfect present purse

Cassie is just screaming holiday ready in this outfit!!!

You may remember this dress – THE Valentina Dress, by Kiyonna.  Click here to see what I mean.

It is one of my favourites to wear, but I wear it so rarely due to its boobalicious-curve-hugging nature…

I mean: HAPPY HOLIDAYS, indeed! Right? 😉

Buuuuuuuuuut, it’s not a dress that I can just bring out to family functions and holiday parties among the many married couples :/

Sooo by adding a fur collar not only tames the amount of cleavage on display, but it adds a wintery touch to your outfit.

I found this gorgeous fox fur collar at a vintage shop in Montreal earlier this year.  It has come in handy many times so far to amp up a look, keep the girls at bay or even just take a plain outfit to the next level.  Visit my Instagram to see what I mean.

Cassie styled an all-black-everything look, with leather and pleats pulling everything together with this great fur jacket!
