Have you see the recent video that Lane Bryant produced for the #PlusisEqual campaign, featuring gorgeous women of all sizes strutting their goods in sexy lingerie? They launched in strategically in time for New York Fashion Week 2015 and I love it! It makes me feel so beautiful and wanted! I think all of us can use a little positive reinforcement that all body types, shapes and sizes are beautiful and desired!
I am so happy that there is a push for a more supportive curvy fashion community, slow, but progressive non the less.
Lane Brant is also the creator of the recent #IamNoAngel campaign.
It’s casual Friday here at Mode Xlusive! What are you wearing?
Don’t you just love that denim jackets are in right now! I love how they are a cross between a tailored blazer and a cozy sweater. They can make gorgeous dresses casual or amp up a lazy sweater and tank top. Denim is also great for temperature control (I’m always hot, so this is important for me). The cotton is breathable and warm at the same time. A short jacket that hits you at your waist can do wonders for your figure and help accentuate the most narrow part of your body. A good stretchy denim will be comfortable and offer a more structured look.
Black and blue shall never been seen, except in the washing machine!
Have you ever heard of this non-sense? I love mixing blue and black… and breaking fashion rules! I love the black accessories in this outfit too, especially this black patent leather Gucci purse with a tassel! You know I have a weakness for tassels. My black Michael Kors strappy sandals are oh-so gorgeous and oh-so comfortable! They are a mix of edgy and dressy, sort of like the denim jacket.
This was part of a series of photos that I did with Kristy Chapman Photography. Enjoy!
In these pictures, I am wearing:
It’s no secret, today is my birthday! But if you follow me online, you already knew that. What you wouldn’t know is that my life has completely changed in 1 year, both physically and professionally.
This picture was taken on my birthday last year… When I was in a tough place in my life. I lost my job after going on maternity leave and was unemployed for a total of 6 months. That summer I stated a Marketing and Communications company to support small businesses, called “Go-to Girl”. I stared a networking group for young business women “Ottawa Networking Superwomen” and hosted countless business and social events. I started this blog and built my empire slowly.
Fast forward to 1 year…
I landed an awesome and stable job, I started seeing a personal trainer, I joined weightwatchers, lost 20lbs and I’m at the best physical shape of my life! My blog has exploded and I’m getting noticed! And you know what? It feels pretty damn good!
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes and for your encouragement throughout these tough and exciting times. You really get to know who are the people that truly care for you in these times.
Cheers to another fantastic year!
