Wardrobe Malfunctions


You’re at work, a little late, because you couldn’t decide what to wear. You frantically choose something and rush out the door. But, low and behold, as soon as you get to work, the regret sets in. Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever suffered a wardrobe malfunction?

I’m sure everyone has experienced this sort of problem with their outfit. Maybe your…

  • Skirt is too short?
  • Blouse button is pulling at the chest?
  • Shoes are too tight?
  • Tights have a run?

Well, today I wore a blouse that was pulling at the chest, and it made me feel so uncomfortable. I hate tugging at my clothes all day long. You almost draw more attention to yourself when you’re fidgeting.

A few months back, I was contacted by a Canadian company called More Front Room. And they specialize in just that, providing clothes with more space in the chest area! They could have really come in handy today.

Festive Fashion: Black and Red Holiday Looks

screen-shot-2015-12-08-at-10-14-54-pm In my post last week, I mentioned that I was featured in Ottawa Family Living magazine. As you know, print is always limited to space, unlike a blog, so my fashion outfits didn’t quite make the cut. I guess they wanted to keep the smart answers over the pretty pictures. That’s a win for any blonde girl! haha.

Just as I said in my article, my go-to this season, is Leather! Here are three easy looks that offer comfort, style and versatility!

Each look offers a different way to play up on leather:

  1. Leggings  (similar in size L/XL)
  2. Moto Jacket (similar in size L/XL)
  3. Skirt (similar in size L/XL)

Pleather leggings, oversized red sweater (H&M), black ankle booties (Nine West), black tassel purse (Aritzia). Easy, comfortable and very accessible.
Red dress (H&M), black leather moto jacket (Danier), black bag (Danier) and closed pumps (Calvin Klein). You can add black tights to this look to warm it up a bit. This is good for any casual Holiday party or night out.
Pretty in plaid! I love mixing odd combinations together! Plaid shirt (Old Navy), Skirt (Bailey 44), blue suede pumps (Nine West), clutch (Rudsak)

These are, once again, brought to you by the ever-talented Kristy Chapman Photography.
