I was gifted this beautiful Arroh & Bow infinity dress from the lovely owner of The Handmade Bride in the Byward Market. Meagan wanted to see how I would style the Coralie Short Infinity Dress in Stone. These dresses are quite popular in the wedding scene, but they are extremely versatile and can be worn pretty much anywhere. Yes… even in a laundromat! haha
On March 3, I presented a TV segment on CTV Morning Live “Dress like a JUNOs star with Place D’Orleans” (scroll below for full video clip). I promised to showcase all the looks of each nominee on the blog and tell you where I got everything from, so here it is- Junos style with Place D’Orleans! Disclaimer, this is a LONG post, but worth the read. I have detailed shots of all the looks, an amazing contest and much more. SO grab your beverage of choice and a cozy spot on the couch and keep reading.
How excited are you for the 46th Annual Juno Awards happening in Ottawa on April 2, 2017? I know I am! Some of my favourite Canadian artists have been nominated this year; Drake, the Weeknd, and Justin Bieber… yes, don’t judge me. What I love about the Junos, is how accessible it is to everyone, literally you can buy your tickets to the Junos online and join the party! I am told to get there early and secure a spot on the red carpet to watch over 200 artists walking in!
For many different reasons, presenting a live TV segment is harder than it seems. Although the spot usually lasts between 4 to 7 minutes, it can take months to plan and loads of hours to coordinate the entire thing. Whether you’re presenting a fashion segment, as I typically do, or promoting a new product, or an upcoming event, the formula is pretty standard. Keeping your nerves calm, remembering your key messages, and nailing your set-up are just a few things to consider. Quite often, people seek my advice and ask me how to put together and present a tv segment. So for everyone’s benefit, I decided to share my tips on the most important things you need to do before you present a TV segment via a blog post!
Club Monaco celebrates NYFW2017 in Ottawa showcasing ‘See now- Buy now’ Spring/Summer 2017 collection
Last night, Ottawa had a chance to celebrate a piece of New York Fashion Week with Club Monaco at CF Rideau Centre. Once again, Club Monaco nails it out of the park with elegant, feminine and classic designs for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. The line was inspired by the French documentary Latcho Drom , which follows a family of travelers as they journey from Romania to India. Club Monaco remains true to their signature urban style, and manages to weave in the notable Gypsy details, like peasant tops, bells and frills, all inspired by the film.
