“I’ll take 5 grandma underwears please!” is how I made my purchase at the cash yesterday… my sister next to me was mortified. The girl behind the cash snickered to herself because she was curvy and I know she was thinking “YASS gurl, function over looks!”.
WARNING- this post is 100% bonafide TOO MUCH INFORMATION (#TMI), so stop reading now… although I doubt you will!
The back story- I hate underwear. I hate when they are too tight when they give you wedgies when they are too loose and start falling down. I hate when the lines show, I hate how they create muffin tops… you get the picture. I often get asked to post about my undergarments, and I truly haven’t felt comfortable discussing it on my super duper high fashion blog (hahaha). But sometimes, you need this real talk. Women are genuinely looking for their gal pal secrets and its my turn to share mine!
Lately, I love Victoria Secret’s new High-Leg Brief Panty, 100% cotton, and 100% nona!
I love that they are wedgie-proof and stay where they should. They don’t have much tummy control, but that’s a whole other blog post. Sadly, I was thinking practical so I grabbed 3 beige, 1 black and 1 grey. I actually wear a size M, so they do run a bit large.
What’s your favourite underwear? Any secrets you’re willing to share? Do tell!
Work work work work… were talking #corporatestyle on the blog today, and man oh man, is fall fashion fun this year! So many colours and textures to play with; from suede and leather to Pantone 2016’s baby blue and blush pink!
I was on CTV Morning Live again today, talking about Inbetweenie fall fashion trends that I styled with Le Chateau. That’s right folks, Le Chateau carries all the way to size 18/XXL! They have some gorgeous work clothes with lots of statement pieces to help you build your high fashion wardrobe for work.
Styling tips for fall
- more colour than we are used to; pale blue, burgundy, and army green
- bold patterns
- layering is great for changes in weather
- consider transition pieces that can go from summer to fall and even to winter
Styling tips for inbetweenie
- stores that carry a wide range in sizes allows you to find the best fit for your body type (For example, I need a XL blazer, but wear a size M in pants).
- consider wearing blazers, vests and cardigan to cover your least favourite attributes and create structure
- look for stretch in the places you need it most (for example in your arms, belly, or thighs)
- invest in a great blouse and blazer to solidify your work wardrobe

Come celebrate the 15th annual Boobyball fundraiser, hosted by Rethink Breast Cancer. This year’s theme is Paradise City! Think lemurs, tigers and flamingos… oh my!
Rethink breast cancer is the first ever Canadian charity to bring bold, relevant awareness to the 40s and under crowd; foster a new generation of young and influential breast cancer supporters; infuse sass and style into the cause; and, most importantly, respond to the unique needs of young women going through it.
Last year, I attended the first Boobyball event in Ottawa, and had a blast! This year, I was asked to support this amazing cause, and of course, I had a hard time saying no! How could I? So much effort goes into the theme, the fashion and the experience. If you’re already convinced, the you can simply…
Here are the deets- the event this year will be held at Lago on October 28th.

What to wear to the affair?
I know this is what makes or breaks the ticket purchase. “I have nothing to wear, so I am not going!” she says. Wrong! Let me help you with that.
I found some pretty awesome inspirational pieces from l’Intervalle, HM and Zara. All which can now be found at CF Rideau Centre! One stop shop my friends, one stop shop.
I never like to reveal what I will be wearing, but as you know, I like to inspire. Maybe you already have a few key pieces you can put together at home? There is no need to spend big money, leave that money to the cause.
The pieces I chose are bright, colourful, floral, busy and loaded with pattern and some animal print of course. Have fun with your designer costume and remember to bring your A-Game!

Can’t wait to see what everyone will be wearing! Now, I need to start working on my outfit… BRB.
