Hidden Gems

One of my favourite and apparently untapped Plus Fashion resources it Reitmans.  So many of my favourite pieces have come from Reitmans.  They sell jeans up to a size 28.  They also produced some of my most favourite television ads. As we bid adieu to the dog days of summer I transition from flip-flops and breezy summer dresses into cropped jeans and crisp, pressed shirts.  Though the humidity likes to hang out through to the end of September, I love the crisp mornings and cool evenings.   A cute pair of heels can take a casual outfit into girls' night out in a flash.  I picked these cuties up at a thrift store on Roncesvalles here in Toronto.  I love...

Behind the Scenes with Thigh Society

About a month ago you may recall how excited I was that I met Marnie, the Maven behind Thigh Society (the anti-chafing garment).  Her garment has positively impacted not only my life but the lives of many women I know.  She’s a real life super hero! Not long after our meet cute, I received an email from Marnie, inviting me to participate in an upcoming shoot featuring her garments.  I cheerfully and excitedly accepted!  I love the garment and I’m just vain enough to say I love getting my photo taken so I was definitely in!

I know those are someone else’s words (if you know who please let me know), but the first time I read them...

Tis the Season!

December is such a busy month for everyone: parties, shopping, baking, cooking, decorating. While I’m not christian, my husband and I definitely celebrate a secular holiday filled with friends, food and presents. My favourite part of the holidays is the excuse to dress festive for no reason other than it’s the season to!  Sequins, glitter, feathers, fur (faux or otherwise), and rich velvets and wools are my fashion favourites!  I live for taffeta and satin and there’s no such thing as too much crinoline. As a little holiday splurge, I treated myself to a photo session with Rebecca of Rebecca Northcott Photography.  I put together a sophisticated, festive ensemble and gently inched my way onto her set in a pair...
