Salsa @ Lula Lounge

Oh man – this past weekend was a fun one!   I had the pleasure of celebrating a stagette Salsa style!!!

The Lula Lounge (Dundas W/Duffrin Sts) in Toronto has a number of party packages, which makes celebrating a special event easy-peasy.

A gaggle of us -some more tipsy than others- with flowers in hair and penis-staws in hand …. visit my Instagram for that one friends 😉 … arrived for dinner (any appetizer + any main + any dessert), a beginner salsa lesson and then got to dance the night away to three sets by the live salsa orchestra (with a DJ in between sets.)  And before the night was done, we were served up a round of Blushing Bride shooters!!!  T.R.O.U.B.L.E. 😀

My Entree: Red Snapper over Polenta, with zucchini-corn-bean salad    ~~~~~  My Dessert: Poached Pear. Delish!

Much thought had to be given to outfit choice for the evening.  The MOH (matron of honour) assured us that there was no ‘theme’ requirement in the dress-code for the party she had planned, which naturally translated to:

Saturday Night Titty City Attire was encouraged and welcomed!!! 😛

I couldn’t find a hot pink hair flower …so feathers had to do 🙂

‘The Girls’, who too often are forced into hiding in an effort of making others more comfortable in their presence, extra precautions always need to be taken to keep them at demure levels of exposure.

But not tonight.

Tonight, “Thelma & Louise” (aka…’The Girls’) were coming out!!!  STAND BACK!

All Black Everything – jumpsuit style!!!

The pants are a bit on the long side on my 5’2 bod.  So this outfit only really works with a significant heeled shoe.

I picked up these black booties recently – while in search for sandals for my upcoming Asian Adventure –  from Payless on sale for $33 and they work perfectly.

Now, I bought this all-black jumpsuit online, from Reitmans, just after Christmas.  Buuuuuuut due to the amount of boobage I’ve avoided wearing it much.  This one-piece has a sexy deep-v, back tie-up belt and nice broad sleeveless-shoulders to hide a supportive bra – requirement for fast paced salsa dancing.

And….there are pockets!!! Perfect for lip gloss, iPhone, credit card & ID.  BOOM!

End of the night outfit shot — bridesmaids came to my hair flower aid 🙂

How I Got The Look:  Black jumpsuit from Reitmans; Black booties from Payless;  Necklace from SexyPlus Clothing; Earrings from Aldo; Hot pink feathered headband, gifted.

Now I wasn’t always a fan of the plus-sized jumpsuit.  For more jumpsuit action on the blog ….click here and here and here.

Fuchsia & Faux Furs

I’ve been doing my very best to avoid wearing ‘wintery’ things just yet, avoiding bulky sweaters and a giant winter coat at all costs.

That’s why I really loved this two-toned, short-sleeved, light-weight polka-dotted sweater from Reitmans.  I love me some colour, so I decided to go with bright bottoms and bright jewellery, keeping my shoes simple.IMG_5602

I finally got myself a haircut – waddya think of my new do?

These pics aren’t the best to show it off…as sadly the new cut went right into a furry hat, as it was quite cold this evening.

Since us Torontonians will have to endure Winter for, what will feel like 8-months of the year, I’m avoid wearing a proper winter coat for as long as I possibly can.  I went for this double-breasted button herringbone jacket instead.  For other looks in this jacket click here.

I also got to unveil my new leather gloves I picked up from the Danier Leather Friends n’ Family sale.  Mixing in expensive pieces with non-expensive pieces, to give me an overall sophisticated, business casual look.

Waddya think of this combo?

How I Got The Look:

Fuchsia pants from Old Navy; Polka-dot sweater from Reitmans; Fur bag from Aldo Accessories; Shoes from Rockport; Statement necklace & earrings from LOFT; Gloves from Danier Leather; Jacket from Forever21+; Michael Kors bracelet watch; Beige scarf from Winners; Fur hat…sorry friends, I don’t remember

Acid Pink!

I LOVE PINK!  I’d wear it head-to-toe everyday if I could! 😛

So when I found this delightful acid pink dress among the rather drab colour pallets of 2014’s Fall Fashions at AdditionElle last month at the Stockyards Grand Opening – I was over the moon with excitement!
Profs II-53At the time of taking these photos, the weather did not require hosiery.  So I matched up this dress with my NineWest purple leopard peep-toed pumps.

Profs II-52But for Fall/Winter,  I totally plan on paring this look with booties and dark tights. I was recently sent some hosiery from Sonsee – these would be perfect for taking this look into the winter months.   Unlike shape-wear – Sonsee is both comfortable & smoothing with broad ranges in sizing, products and seasonal colours.  Stay tuned for that product review on the blog soon friends 😉

Since this dress is relatively plain, I thought I’d step up the dazzle-factor with giant jewellery!

Profs II-57This gorgeous statement necklace by Victorious Me, I picked up at SexyPlus Clothing’s Blogger Fall Preview …. I managed to find a perfectly matching set of earrings cheaply from Ardene.
Profs II-51I unveiled this frock at the Damzel’s 20th Anniversary Gala  – adding some vintage effort to my hair and created a mini-bumper-bang (click here for the vid that helped me create it).  Along with my Torrid gold studded black suede sling-backs and my fantastic black petit point 1960s purse (from The Vintage Domain).   

You can really notice my sun-tanned face when you compare the pics from the event to the ones taken by LawrenceKerrPhotography …. stay tuned for a vacation recap post coming soon friends 😉

Remember when I was torn on wether I should buy this wool + leather jacket from Retmains a little while back (please ignore the floral leggings and laundry basket in the background)?

Well, your Facebook feedback helped me make the right decision I think —- just look at how great it is with this acid pink frock!

Thanks for the good advice friends!!! 😉
