Summer Sales, Fall Tales

Oh you feel that crispness in the air … Fall is here friends!

And you know what that means:  Summer Sales!!!

This outfit cost $20!  Reitmans Summer Sales are the greatest!

Yep!  It’s your chance to nab some super cute summer stuff on the cheap.

Stay on the lookout for low-cost pieces in jewel tones that can pull a summer wardrobe into fall.

And the perfect opportunity to try and extend these new pieces you acquire into transitioning weather outfits!  So checkout my recent summer sale finds and how I’m gonna make them work into Fall….

It’s a TWO piece!!!  And the skirt has deep pockets!!!

Winners and Reitmans seem to be my go-to stops for summer sale hunting, especially if I’m in the downtown office.

Purse, old (recently rediscovered it in my closet); Necklace from MyBeadedDesign; Guess Platform sandals, Winners ($29); Matchy top ($10) and skirt ($10) from Reitmans

For cooler Autumn days — simply add tights, trade in open toes for closed toed shoes and a sweater layer in a warm colour, like orange below 😉

Ya’ll know I’m a shopaholic.  It would be really easy to blow your fashion budget on buying new clothes for the fall, especially with so many tempting window displays out there right now.  (I fell victim to it recently after a simple dental cleaning appointment – if you’re following me on Instagram, then you know what I mean). :/

But your Fall Tales doesn’t have to buying a completely new wardrobe. By adding richer textures, darker colours and a little added warmth your summer clothes …and  you’ll be able to wear ’em well into right into winter!!!

So, what do you think of my Summer Sale, Fall Tale here?  You like?

SONSEE Woman – Product Review

The easiest way to make your Summer pieces more Fall/Winter appropriate isn’t to ditch them altogether, but to come up with new ways to wear them.

I picked up this dress from BIGDeal Toronto‘s pop-up sale.

I picked up this sheer, pleated, sleeveless dress from BIGDeal Toronto’s pop-up sale a few months ago,  and was determined to transition it for Fall/Winter wear.  (Click here for other ideas to transition summer into winter outfits.)

Transitioning this into a Fall/Winter outfit required hosiery and a sweater.  I love the way adding tights to dresses and skirts easily give them a whole new look.

Personally, I think tights give my outfit a chic, sophisticated, lady-like look.  Lucky for me Sonsee Woman sent me two packs of tights to review, which do just that! 🙂

Sonsee sizes come in Gorgeous (14-16), Flawless (18-20), Stunning (22-24) and Radiant (26-28).

Unlike shape-wear – Sonsee is both comfortable & smoothing with broad ranges in sizing, products and seasonal colours. I was sent “Shadow” – a solid grey colour shown in these pictures, and “Black” which I’m yet to wear (click here to see how I’d wear them).

SONSEE WOMAN HOSIERY

I have to say, I’ve become ever dependent on buying cheap hose from the Dollarstore.  Being petite (aka short) their ‘queen size’ seems to do the job, but these are only really good for one-time wear.

These Sonsee tights were such a nice change in terms of fabric quality, with a fabulous “sheer:thickness ratio”.  Meaning I didn’t have to fear ripping them as I rolled them up my leg.  They’ve got an anti-roll waistband which allows you to wear them high or low on the waist with comfort.  And there’s extra reinforcement at the thighs for greater durability – and “Lighting & Thunder” – my loving nickname for MY thighs –  really appreciate that! 😉

SONSEE WOMAN

Since I wear a size 18 in clothes, I ordered my Sonsee tights in size Flawless (18-20).  Being petite, this size was a bit too big on me.  Next time I’d order a size smaller to avoid extra length and scrunching at my ankles, as you can see in the close up shots in the pics above.

SONSEE WOMAN

To up the sophisticated vibe of this outfit, I added my navy statement necklace & earring set from LOFT and covered up my arms with a simple v-neck grey cardi from Old Navy.

You really do get what you pay for.  These Sonsee hose transitions this Summer dress  perfectly into sophisticated chic Winter wear, don’t you think?
