Outfit Ideas: Four fresh fall fashion trends nailed by Joe Fresh

This Fall, Joe Fresh asked me to take part in the launch of their new extended (plus size) line and fall fashion trends. I styled some curvy women a few weeks back and presented the looks for a fashion segment on CTV Morning live. For the fall campaign, I also styled some looks for myself. The outfits that I am wearing are part of the standard sizing, although some items are available in the extended collection. Most items I am wearing are size XL.

Joe Fresh launches extended sizing for plus size women with the best fall fashion


This post is so exciting for me for many reasons. First, I am a Joe Fresh girl and have been since the very beginning. When you wear a size XL, you don’t have a lot of fashionable options, especially in Ottawa. Second, I am even more excited that Joe Fresh now comes in extended sizes (up to size 3X!). Now I can blend my passion for Joe Fresh and my passion for styling curvy women!

Le Veston- My Denim Vest

Le Veston

A few observations. First, I feel so 80’s today with my new vest. Second, I might be obsessed with denim… hahaha

Today’s proutfit is brought to you by my new Old Navy light wash denim vest, perfect to hide chubs and rolls! he he We can’t all be sleek but we sure can try and hide our flaws!

This cut is perfect for me as it hits high, right at my waistline and really helps accentuate it. For a more pear shaped body type, or if you are blessed with a booty, I would recommend a longer version, the Plus Denim Vest.

These vests are perfect for the summer. They keep you cool, but covered. Give you a more tailored finish without being too restricting and best of all, as I mentioned above… it helps to hide imperfections. I will be wearing it with skirts and dresses./.. so watch out!

Yes, I have imperfections. It doesn’t mean that I hate myself. I am just on a mission to find flattering clothes and help you do the same!

I am wearing my new Nine West flats that I got for 50% off… 1 of 3 pairs that I bought recently. You already saw my electric blue swede pumps yesterday. So far they are soft and comfortable! I love the preppy look too. Stay tuned for number 3.
