A pop of patternĀ 

Adding a fun Texter or pattern can create such a luck to any piece of clothing. When considering a pattern, notice it’s slimming or filling qualities as well as if it makes you appear shorter or taller. Picking out the right outfit has a lot to do with the pattern! Each and every body type is different which is why the style tip of the day is to focus on what suits you best! Next time you’re out shopping consider what you would like to change or emphasize about your body shape and go from there!


For floral sake

What a blouse! This style piece was the first thing that caught my eye when the new orders in store arrived! A side note about myself, Im involved in a program at Andie’s boutique! Where I came across an exciting top. Such beautiful colour and detail go into the makings of this ready to wear blouse, easily paired with dark distressed denim jeans and white sandals or a fringe brown booty. For a fun and classy office look you can wear black dress pants or a dark pencil skirt along with a black fitted blazer. If you wanna add a little more fun to your look try paring this blouse with navy blue or camo green bottoms. 

Breakfast at Andie’s…

Wear this during day or night and always win! Spring dresses have finally just come in! White wedges or a pair of your favourite black heels will help to pull together the look you’re trying to achieve. Perhaps you can add an exciting element to the outfit by pairing it with bright coloured shoes. Such as a red, yellow or fuscia heel. The effect would be amazing to try out leading into summer. To make the outfit even more fun and if the event is right, add a huge (almost obnoxious) hat that the loveliest luxurious of ladies would wear to the horse races.  This little black dress with an eye catch pop of colour and intriguing patter create the perfect spring attire. You can find this unique piece at Andie’s Boutique in Uptown Waterloo. 

Cheap chic

These lovely black suede heels are my favourite find of the day. I originally had the idea to go to Le chateau for a browse at shoes, which by the way I was basically harassed by the stylists and consultants that work there. I’m literally just looking, DO NOT BRING ME SHOE SIZES!!! The shoes here are amazing but seriously, I’m broke and nowhere near willing to pay $100 (of my own money anyway šŸ˜‰ on a single pair of shoes. So after feeling obligated to try on 3 different pairs (I’m sorry where actually did this guy get the idea that I wanted to try on shoes though, really.) I went down to the Bay, a shopping haven in my eyes! And looked at there shoes. Glorious but outrageous due to pricing if you’re lacking bank like myself and most people. Although, I did find the perfect pair! They were stunning leather heels with a cut out at the ankles. Ugh. But $175 isn’t gonna happen! At this point I was ready to give up on my shopping trip but I figured I’d try one last store and that was H&M. Boy oh boy, was I in luck. They had pink suede and black suede and leather heels, for $35!!! SCORE!!! and not only that but they were the exact same shoes I had seen at the Bay. The kind workers at H&M who kindly let you shop without any harassment reassured me that the quality was the same and that hey, if there $35, you’d be getting money’s worth even if it lasted you a year.

Style tip: shop smart, smart cheap & chic

The perfect spring accessory

Spring is one my favourite seasons. (Aside from summer of course!) The flowers, the sun, and of course the fashion. This is a great time for the fashion industry. With all the fun colours and patterns that spring inspires, designers are always popping up with exciting new ideas. The outfit I must say, is the easy part. But how do we accessorize a glamorous spring outfit appropriately? Normally I’d suggest diamonds (because seriously you can never go wrong with diamonds!!!) or, anything bright & floral. After seeing this necklace I couldn’t believe how much fun you could have accessorizing the perfect outfit. Notice how the emerald green in the necklace shouts spring, it’s pretty & girly while still remaining monotoned. The gold chain adds a touch of taste and enhances the beauty of the jewels. Stunning piece! 

For the love of denim…

I can’t stand how much I love these shoes!! They’re simple but yet such a statement. With these babies, you can go one way or another. Trying out denim on denim could be a fashion forward look, if done right! Perhaps a pairing of dark distressed jeans will do the trick. Or you can go simple by playing safe but cute with black or white bottoms. Seriously though, denim will never go out of style. $90 dollars at the bay? Worth it!
