LBD #3: Sheer Panel Swing Dress from CLEO

This dress fit me like a glove right off the rack!!!

It’s the perfect length, no hemming required.  The arm holes required no pinning and the neckline didn’t reveal too much cleavage.

Plus, the broad straps easily allow for a regular bra to be worn – #winning 🙂

Sheer panels seemed to be pretty fashionable this holiday season.  I like how it adds textural interest in a minimalist way to this all-black dress, bringing  lightness and breathability to heavy fabrics in the winter.

I really want to come up with ways to take this frock outside of being just a cocktail dress.  If you’ve got some ideas for how to do it – share them with me friends! 😉

Little Black Dress #3

Continuing with January’s  Little Black Dress week on the blog today.

If you missed any of the previous LBD’s click here:  #1 and #2.  Today’s LBD isn’t completely black I know….but go with me 🙂

I picked it up this Fall at SexyPlus Clothing’s Blogger Soirée   — to see how I styled it for Fall wear on my birthday, click here.

LBD #4: SexyPlus Clothing’s JAX Newsprint

FullSizeRender-5It has been bitterly cold in Toronto.  So keeping warm and cozy has been more important than ever.  Which means a perfect excuse to adorn oneself in faux furs!!!

FullSizeRender-4Regular hosiery options just wasn’t warm enough under this light Fall dress.  So I’m wearing thick leggings with tall boots instead.  Cover up as much of that skin as you can ladies. Instead of going bare-legged, consider wearing tights or thermal leggings  beneath your skirt or dress. Not only does it look more climate-appropriate in formal situations, your legs will remain softer since they won’t be as exposed to the elements. Just like scarves, leggings and tights come in many different varieties, so it is nearly impossible not find a pair that will work with your outfit and mesh with your personality 😉

Little Black Dress #2

Continuing with  January’s  Little Black Dress  series on the blog today.

Today I took a cheap little summer office dress and transformed it into winter wear ….

LBD #2: Belted Merona from Target

This dress is pretty great.  The long silver zipper down the back adds this simple, sexy quality to an otherwise pretty modest dress.  These pictures don’t showcase the large buckle belt that comes with this dress.

My apologies for the poor photos quality in this post – it was pretty dark outside when I remembered to snap pics.  Pardon my winter-bun-headed look ….its the only way to keep my hair from getting crazy static once the parka goes on.

image2-3Here’s a zoomed in look at this fabulous hot pink sweater I picked up on sale at Winners.  It fit nicely under the dress as its quite light-weight and the details up the arms really add a little dazzle to break up this all-black look.

Little Black Dress #1

I dunno about you friends, but January is officially Little Black Dress month for me.  There has been WAYYY too much eating over the festive season … and this holiday weight is making me choose blacks over other fun colours in my wardrobe these days.

Lucky for me, I’ve got a lil’ Collection of LBDs that don’t nearly get enough of my attention all year round.  So why not use this month to let them shine 🙂

LBD #1:  Forever21+ 

IMG_5905Truth be told, I bought this dress as a Halloween Costume one year, when a girlfriend and I dressed as Robert Palmer girls.  The best (and easiest) costume to pull off I tell ya.

What sold me about this dress was the different textures of fabric used.  The top is this shiny poly-blend with a sweet little twist to the neckline which leads to off the shoulder sleeves, and the skirt portion is a ribbed cotton.

IMG_5902There is beauty in simplicity.  I tried sticking to a head-to-to black … keeping the hose and heels black too.  But in the end, I needed more — and that’s when this red blazer just kicked it up a notch.IMG_5913This giant pearl necklace is my absolute favourite (Your Big Sister’s Closet) – it just adds the perfect punch of sophistication to this entire outfit.

How I Got The Look:  LBD from Forever21+; Red blazer from Jessica, Sears; Glossy black pumps from Payless; Sheer hosiery from Dollarama; Necklace from Your Big Sister’s Closet; Gold earrings from Ardene

#MyVegasStyle

Now…I’ve never been to Vegas myself.  I was close last summer when I was a California Girl for a week (see my Wanderlust page for a few pics of that trip).  Sadly my trip was too short to include a jaunt to down to The Gambling Capital.  Vegas is definitely on my travel-list…and I would certainly need to pack weeks in advance to make sure I was Vegas Ready when it came to Daytime and Nighttime looks.

I was approached by the Content Director of Vegas.com to participate in their current blog challenge: #MyVegasStyle.

Challenge accepted!!! 😉

 

Vegas Style: Daytime

I’m usually for fashion over function.  Buuuuut for daytime looks in desert heat, my vote is for fashion with function!  Light, easy fabrics that could easily take you to a nice lunch spot, like at Aria’s Lemongrass resturant, and would keep you comfortable if you wanted to explore the sights of Vegas on foot (which would mean swapping heels for fun flats and sandals).  Take a look at these collages of daytime #myvegasstyle – including a ton of sun hats, my newest obsession!  I included a personal #ootd from a previous post that I think would totally fit into this category of Vegas Daytime Style too!

Swimwear

Frankly, any of the swimwear from Monif C. would totally fall into #MyVegasStyle category! Love! Love! Love!

This Peru Fringe Swimsuit would definitely be in my carry-on to Vegas.  A dream come true for chesty chicks like me, and the sexy fringe details help distract from any thigh insecurities.   Sexy! Brilliant! Love!

Vegas Style: Nighttime  

Titty City – I would definitely play up the cleavage in Sin City! I think for a nice dinner followed by a show and gambling I could finally rock my Valentina Illusion Dress from Kiyonna.  I think this number should bring someone a bit of luck, gambling if not otherwise…don’t you think? 😉

Leopard – I’m wearing this faux wrap Joseph Ribkoff dress a few weeks ago for a girlfriend’s birthday celebration.  All three of us look like we were Vegas Nighttime Ready already, don’t you think?  Meow indeed!!! 😉  Maybe we could wear these outfits to club Haze in the Aria Hotel.

Sequins – Where better to wear a glittery number if not in the “Entertainment Capital of the World”!  I would def pack and rock my sequins tank and dress, depending on the time of year, I’d swap the tall boots for sexy pumps for nighttime fun in Vegas.  Check out my previous post, How to Wear Sequins for other ideas to incorporate into a Vegas style look 🙂

Little Black Dress (LBD) – You can’t really go wrong with this approach for Vegas Nightlife.

I’m thinking Audrey classy, not clubby-trashy….
