Since starting my Vedette Shapewear collaboration I definitely have learned a few things about shapewear that I never knew before. Such as learning about the piece I chose to style for my second review this month. This piece is called the Zoe (click here to see the Zoe). The Zoe is a torsette which I had never heard of before. What I like about a torsette is that it works well to cinch the waist of any body shape and size including my petite short size. I also like that it does up in the front making it easy to put on.
My challenge is to style the shapewear as part of my outfit so I chose to wear it as colorful belt but it would be fantastic to wear under anything to smooth out any problem issues. The Zoe torsette also comes in 3 other colors (see all the choices here). I had a hard time chosing but of course I chose the brightest one!
Fall may be here but I still think floral patterns are fantastic to wear! I think the bold pattern is a great way to stand out in a sea of black!

So I am back at my monthly Vedette Shapewear color challenge and giveaway! For the first of my 2 monthly shapewear pieces I chose to style the Lulu shapewear swimsuit (see the Lulu here) as a part of my outfit! I am a huge fan of Vedette's swimwear (see all the choices here) as they shape beautifully and can be worn as a bustier top as well as a regular swimsuit! This piece fits like a dream and I really love the cute vintage style pin-up girl look with the floral pattern. One of my favorite things about ordering with Vedette is that I just give them all my body measurements and they send me my chosen piece in the perfect size for me! That really takes away all my worries about guessing what size I would be. I think that is fabulous customer service and that makes me happy!
My monthly challenge is to style my shapewear pieces with a different color theme each time. So this time I chose to style my outfit with the color theme of orange, purple and yellow as I wanted to bring out the bright colors of the floral pattern! I think these are fun colors to wear for fall and the wall art in my photos is a perfect compliment to my outfit!
So would you like to win a piece of Vedette Shapewear for yourself?

I love when I find fashion pieces that are out of the ordinary and not something that you will see on everyone. As if we all dressed the same life would be boring. I bought these Kate Spade taxi shoes awhile back as they were perfect for me. They are so different and unique and I had to have them! I have worn them a few times but I have been looking for something to wear with them that would compliment them perfectly since I bought them. Then just last weekend we took a short road trip over the border from Canada into the USA and found the brand new Elie Tahari line for Khols Designation. Right when I walked into the store I saw a mannequin with this fabulous New York city scene print top complete with yellow taxis on it and I knew it would be perfect to go with my taxi shoes! I love when designers make a special affordable line so that everyone can own a piece in their closet. The fashion line is quite lovely and I wouldn't mind owning the NYC skyline dress too!
Have you seen the new fashion line from Elie Tahari for Designation at Khols? What do you think? Click here to see the fashion pieces if you want to check them out.

I think a lot of people would say that autumn is probably the most beautiful time of year when the leaves on the trees start changing to vibrant colors. Last week here in Winnipeg the weather was so cold that we had frost in the morning and the leaves began changing color. Everyone started dressing in winter clothing but then this week happened and the weather became so hot making it feel like the middle of summer. I find that this time of year it is a little hard to get dressed as the mornings are a little cool but by the afternoon it can get quite warm. Layering is always a good choice but you must choose pieces that are lightweight. I think a cotton jacket is perfect to layer with as it is light and breathable. I found this beautiful scenic printed one at a clearance sale a few weeks ago and loved the colors. I styled my whole outfit around the beautiful blues and golden tones. I think we all love the end of season clearance sales and the deals we find at them!
Let me know what you have found at the clearance sales?

I am so happy to say that finally we have an H&M here in Winnipeg! It has been a long time coming but it's really here now! I was very excited to have been at the launch party last week and was one of the very first people to be in the store the day before it officially opened to the public! The store was packed full of excited shoppers but I was able to get a few of my favorite pieces before they were all snapped up and I couldn't wait to style them.
I think the peplum style is such a flattering shape on most people and when I saw this peplum blazer in the store I had to have it. It was such a beautiful piece that my sister who was shopping with me also purchased it! I decided to style this blazer with my new full skirt that I purchases at the same time and they look fantastic together but I think it would look equally good with a pencil skirt or a pair of skinny pants!
I am sure you have noticed that the weather is cooling off a bit here in Winnipeg and I have worn my first pair of tights of the season! I have purchased so many fun pairs of tights this year and I can't wait to show off more of them!
Here are the winners of my Septemeber Vedette Shapewear Giveaway: Melanie Kobayashi, Amanda Read and Mihaela Mazilu
