Winter Must Have: Knee high boots

This week the weather turned from fall to winter in no time at all as I am sure you can see this from my photos!  We have had some snow over the weekend here in Winnipeg and I am sure there is more to come very soon.  

When the weather turns cold I have a few things that are a must have for me.  One of those things is a pair of fabulous knee high boots and every lady should have a pair in their wardrobe!  I think boots should be made of quality materials and I personally prefer them to be made of real leather.  Although I do have a few pairs of boots made out of some fun materials like velvet.  I just make sure to wear those boots on days that I am not doing as much or wearing them as long.  A lot of boots out there are made of synthetic products and the material doesn't breathe and your feet and legs could become quite uncomfortable throughout the day.  I know there are some ladies out there that may want a vegan option so just make sure you research the type of materials used and pick the best one for durability and comfort.  Whether you prefer to wear a pair of classic black ones or more colorful ones I am sure you will look fabulous in a pair of knee high boots!

Perfect Fall Coat

Looking for the perfect fall coat is something that I am always on the lookout for.  It has to be special and something that stops me in my tracks when I see it! This coat from Choies definitely is that special fall coat I was looking for! The minute I saw it online it took my breath away and I knew it would be perfect for me!  How could I resist those colors, rhinestones and sequins??!! There were two choices of color combinations for this coat, this blue one (click here to see it) and a pink version (click here to see it).  I had a hard time choosing but finally decided on the blue one because I thought it was more suited for fall with those gorgeous colors.  I think the pink version would be perfect for spring and I really loved the red contrast collar detail!  What I love about this coat is that it looks like a designer piece but at a fraction of the cost.  I have been checking the Choies website pretty much everyday and they sure have some great coats to pick from for fall and winter!  I think I may get another one! 

Owning a pretty coat is really important to me as if I have to cover up my cute outfit because of the cold weather than my coat should be something equally as fabulous to finish off my outfit wonderfully! 

 

Have you found your perfect fall coat?

 

 

I am finally on instagram now! (click here for my account) Yes I know it has taken me a long time but I had a blackberry before and wasn't able to have an account! So sad I know, but I am happy now! If you want to stop by and say hello I would love that! I would love to check you out too!

Fall Brights

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!

 

If you would like to win a piece of Vedette Shapewear for yourself check out my last blog click here for all the details on how to enter!

Contest closes October 26, 2014!

The Market - Vedette Giveaway

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

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.
