Rudsak is a Canadian brand of luxury leather goods, launched by creative visionary Evik Asatoorian in 1994.

I dragged my sister for the 2 hour car ride from Ottawa and spent a lovely 24 hrs in Montreal (more on that later!).

Rudsak partnered with Emily Haines of Metric. Emily customized four leather jackets that were raffled off at all new Rudsak store openings across Canada: Carrefour Laval (Montreal), St-Catherine store (Montreal), Eaton Centre (Toronto) and Market mall (Calgary). You can follow the campaign under #RockRudsak on Twitter and Instagram.

Literally an “apparition” of Metric’s Emily Haines, as promised. She only took a few photos with guests and left after about 30 minutes into the event. Here she is posing with LouLou Magazine.

Everyone got a key to unlock a birdcage. The winning key received the special edition Leather Jacket customized by Emily Haines of Metric. Ironically, the first key tested was the winner!

Proutfit: Darling Floral Dress

This is by far, my dress of the summer. I purchased it at Victoire, an Ottawa boutique, a few months early knowing that it would come in handy. I have worn it to two different weddings this summer, and hope to get some more mileage on it at work. It’s just so… Darling! Well, it is after all a Darling dress. It was from the same collection as this little number.

The floral details are crisp and bright. They hit the nail on this one. The bright colours and the cut of the dress are absolutely flattering on any skin tone. The pleated front of the skirt, including shallow pockets, offers a nice distraction and helps to hide my “post-pregnancy” pooch. The caps on the sleeves add a lovey structured but feminine touch. The skirt hits me just above the knee, which is the optimal spot on my legs, and helps to make me look tall and slender.

I paired the dress with some navy heels from Winners and my favourite silver Ela clutch, purchased on consignment in a Vancouver shop called Mine and Yours. I did my own up-do and had a really good makeup day. My Laura Mercier Paint Wash lipstick in ‘Fuchsia Mauve’ really tied it all together! My last accessory was my handsome date/husband/arm candy of the evening.

I have my 4th wedding of the summer in September, but I have another trick up my sleeve for this one, so stay tuned! Wholly weddings, Batman!!

Roundup: Curvy Canadian Bloggers

I have been doing my fair share of “research” if you will, to connect with fellow Canadian plus-size fashion bloggers. Not just because I want to know their fashion secrets, but because I feel like fashion advice is more realistic when you live in the same climate! I want winter inspiration, just like the rest of us! It’s also nice to know that the world is really a smaller place than we image.

So here goes, my Curvy Canadian Blogger Roundup!

  1. Alice Deer- Les Carnets D’Alice (Montreal)
  2. Ninaah Bulles (Montreal)
  3. Courtney Mina- The Glitter Tread (Ottawa)
  4. Karyn Johnson- Killer Curves (Toronto)
  5. Jessica IP- Clothes and Shit (Toronto)
