Lumberjack Plaid

Lumberjack plaid.

Everyone and their dog (literally) seems to have this staple pattern in their closet.

Except me (and my dog). :/

Well, I’ve subsequently fixed that – thanks to Old Navy!

Not only is this a perfect “Christmas red” … I added an extra nod to an Xmas-y vibe to this outfit by adding my Jack tights from Torrid.

You know Jack…Jack Skellington … king of Halloween Town, who discovers Christmas Town, you know him right? :/  –> The Nightmare Before Christmas

OK… so I took this casual lumberjack plaid and paired it with a leather skirt and a statement necklace with green booties….

Odd combos – maybe.

Fab results – YAASSS!

Layers and Leopard

I’m sick of winter!  I’m sick of wearing boots!  I’m sick of wearing my winter coat!

I’m sick of winter! And it’s making me moody!

I’ve found that wearing colors … even just a pop of color … often helps boost your mood 🙂

This is why I went with a aqua-teal blue collared shirt to pair with my leopard pencil skirt for spending a day in the office last week.

Yikes! Dunno what happened with my iPhone camera …ignore the white lines on the shirt, camera malfunction 🙂

Layer your shirts, blouses, tops, etc! An outfit can go from blah to amazing by just adding a simple cardigan, jacket, or even a plaid shirt! (Maybe not with leopard.  Or then again..hummmmm)

I especially love this open 3/4 sleeved black cardi I picked up from Reitmans a few years ago …cuz there’s a bit of lace along the shoulders and down the front that just adds an extra oomph to anything worn underneath it.  Don’t you agree?

How I Got The Look:

Leopard pencil skirt, SexyPlus Clothing (click here and here to see in other looks); Collared shirt, Lane Bryant; Black lace cardi, Reitmans; Jewellery set, Necessities; Black laced cardi , Reitmans; Booties, Nine West Outlet

IMG_6392Never underestimate the power of good accessories. Many a plain outfit has been saved by the addition of a scarf, belt, or piece of jewelry.   But try sticking to one focal point accessory. For example, if you’re wearing a big statement necklace, like me in this outfit, keep your earrings small or skip them altogether.

I picked up these baubles last week – you may have already seen them on my Instagram.  Are you following me yet? you should 😉

Holiday Double Feature: Office Party


We began the week with a special  Holiday Double Feature collaboration with  Cassie of Style Cassentials yesterday.  If you missed our first post, no worries – click here  🙂

Today we’re we focusing on getting Office Party ready for both before & after 5pm!

Before 5pm…

IMG_5890

To get through the workday, I chose a black collared shirt with a gold faux belt attachment (Reitmans) to go with my gold & black brocade pencil skirt (Lane Bryant).  Keeping the shoes a simple beige pump (Payless) with sheer black hose (Dollarama).

IMG_5889For the party portion of the day, I’d lose the blazer and put on one piece of awesome jewelry: like this amazing black n’ gold statement necklace (SexyPlus Clothing)!  Click here and here to see it in other looks.  IMG_5893

Jewelry has been the most successful fashion conversation starter at networking events, or so I’ve found. Both women and men feel comfortable complimenting or commenting on a piece of jewelry. It’s considered in the safe zone —  Statement Jewellery May Help You Network.

Are you more of an earrings girl? Go For It!   You can wear a big bracelet or put that vintage embellished hair clip in your do.   Just stick to one eye catching piece of jewelry….try not to over do it.

Now, to elevate my look After 5pm…

IMG_5899

I got rid of the collared shirt, and went with the mock-neck peplum top with a sheer peek-a-boo neckline (Forever21+)
IMG_5897-0

I didn’t want to add anything more to the neckline of this top, so I opted for bling’d out earrings instead (Your Big Sister’s Closet)…

I also swapped shoes for these edgy gold spiked pumps (Torrid, click here and here) with a purse to match (Danier Leather, click here) and put my hair up.

IMG_5898Cassie green leopard dress is amazing….!  With blazer or without it’s perfect for office party mode, don’t you think?
