Spring 2010 Shopping Essentials
March 23, 2010 at 1:21 pm 0
Spring is a time of change, renewed energy, and best of all wonderful fashion after months of drab and dark winter clothes! To help you out we’ve made a list of what you need for the new season and how much you should spend to get it. But be warned, this is not your typical list - this doesn't show a list of over priced and super trendy one season only fashions. These shopping essentials are meant to last for seasons and be reasonably priced - helping you look great, and invest in items that you can get maximum wear out of!

neutral heels with fun details
Neutral Coloured Heels With Fun Details – approx $150 These are a good staple because they can go with pretty much anything, can last several seasons and are super versatile for work and for fun. These also go really well with the military inspired clothes that are popular now, in case you want to mix some trendy items in your wardrobe. Shoes pictured are Micheal Kors Spring 2009 collection – that are still very wearable this season!

Open Toe Black Heels – approx $150 Every girl needs a pair of black heels! These are also super versatile but can also easily show fading and general wear and tear. So make sure you take good care of them, or replace them regularly. BCBG always has an excellent collection of basics and super fun black heels.

sandals for spring 2010
Fun Summer Sandals – approx $100 Since the other pair of shoes are basics, splash out and have some fun with your summer sandals. Buy ones that can work at the office or at the park and don’t be afraid to choose ones that are slightly trendy and will be worn out after one season. Summer shoes normally cannot endure longer than one year - so be prepared to replace these next year. Shoes pictured above are from NineWest.

White pants – approx $100 Nothing says spring like white pants. Yes, they may be hard to keep clean, but they look great coupled with bright shirts and the neutral coloured heels. Throw on some fun accessories and you have an outfit that looks amazing and can repeated almost once a week! Jacob is a great source for basics like white pants. You an usually score pants on sale from $50 up to $100.

Femme de Carriere Spring 2010


3 Colourful Shirts With Fun Details – approx $100 each Lighten up! Enjoy all spring has to offer with brightly coloured shirts, fun patterns and cool cuts. Not only will these fun shirts make you feel springy these three shirts can be mixed with pants, cute skirts, or shorts and are a great addition to your regular rotation of spring clothes. Femme de Carriere is always a great source for fabulous shirts with fun colours and very flattering cuts. Sometimes they can be really pricey, so watch out for when they have sales (very regularly) and you can score the same great shirt for $$$’s off.

ClubMonacoMollyDress


An Everyday Dress – approx $125 Now that you don’t need to cover up as much enjoy the ease that a spring dresses offers. You don’t have to worry about what tights to wear or if it’s warm enough outside to wear it. Just put it on! Add either of the three shoes above, pile on the accessories and enjoy! Easy peasy!

Photo Shoot for Vitamin Daily
August 11, 2009 at 5:27 pm 0
Earlier this year I was at a photo shoot for Vitamin Daily. On the day of the shoot it was pouring with rain – all the traffic was very slow, even one second outside meant I was getting soaking wet! These were not ideal conditions for my first shoot, but you know what they say to do with lemons – turn them into lemonade! So, I ran home from work, packed all my favourite clothes into a car, as well as my cosmetics and accessories, and hit the road. When I arrived at the location there was absolutely no parking – and for the record I’m a pretty novice driver so parallel parking on a busy street in rush hour is not my idea of fun. A tad stressed, and tight for time, I finally found a parking spot and then rushed to get everything out of the car and into the studio, without getting soaked. Sadly I dropped one of my shirts right into a mud puddle! When I arrived at the shoot there were other girls having their pictures taken too. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I’ve never been on a real photo shoot, and to be honest, it seems a tad intimidating. I thought it was going to be me with hundreds of girls who do this for a living, and maybe I would stand out as someone who doesn’t do this. I’m not bad at hamming it up for the camera…but in some situations when I don’t feel comfortable I don’t want to be fussed over! It turned out to be fun though! All the girls were very friendly, the organizers were nice, and the setting was very relaxed and comfortable. It couldn’t have gone any better. So when it was my turn I hammed it up for the camera – and even complied with the request to do the cheesy glamour shots the photographer was requesting! And at the end we came up with a winning shot that is now on the Vitamin Daily website. You can find me in the Vitamin Daily ambassadors page.

Statement Dress
June 24, 2009 at 7:19 pm 3
I've been on the lookout for a statement dress recently. I haven't found what I'm looking for exactly, but I did find this knockout dress online. I just love the butterfly inspired mix of colurs, the generous cut of the dress, and the detailing with sparkles and feathers. Can't you just imagine how much fun you'd have in this dress?
