Octobrrr: Black Eloquii Capelet



Happy Octobrrr first! Man it’s cold outside today.
I have to admit that I am still getting used to dressing for the cold. I heard a guy on the radio the other day who said it best “It’s fall in the morning, summer at lunch and winter at night”. I couldn’t have said it better myself!

On a side note, I beat my record and ran 5KM at lunch today! (Yay me!)

So to kick off the first day of October, I am delighted to start sharing my Fall fashion trends for 2015 with you! I am looking forward to sharing more too, so please stick around and tell your friends.

First stop, this black Eloquii capelet. So gorgeous. I feel like a superhero business lady who is ready to take on the meeting and nail it! Boy am I glad I bought it as soon as they sent the email blast, because it sold out instantaneously. I love the thick, breathable and stretchy fabric. It’s so well made, I am definitely ordering from Eloquii again. And although I had to pay shipping, it’s still nice to know that Canadians can get some high end and fashionable curvy clothes online. On a side note, I found this similar Trixxi Plus Size Cape Sheath Dress, which is the bomb also, and on sale!

My look today was very Parisian, oui merci! Stripe shirtblack loafers, cigaret pants and blazer. I threw on my leopard scarf for a bit of extra warmth this morning too. My funky Quay sunnies from Simons, some bright red lipstick (Laura Mercier) from Nordstrom, and my Marsala Danier bag complete this look, if I do say so myself.

Thank you to Dom of StyleDomination for snapping some pics for me! Xoxo

Style Profile: Kay of Country meet City

Kay Country Meets City Mode XLusive Style Profile Ottaw curvy Fashion plus size blogger chantsy chantal SarkisianThis is Kay of Country Meet City. I like her style, so I ask her a few questions.

What’s your passion for fashion? I have loved fashion ever since I was really young. My mom was always really into fashion herself and loved dressing me up. I definitely credit a lot of my fashion sense and creativity to my mom and those early years.

What XLusive tip can you share? Have fun with fashion and try new styles/trends and go outside your comfort zone. You never know if something is going to look good on you unless you try it out. I love shopping at Winners, Zara, Gap, Old Navy and The Bay. Some local (Ottawa) shops I love to hit are Milk Shop, HepKat Vintage and Roadtrip. When I’m getting dressed I try to dress for my body shape (hourglass). When picking clothes I try to accent my assets. For dresses I like the fit and flare look or wrap dresses. A defined waistline goes a long way!

In this pic Kay wears:
– Blazer (Forever 21)
– Peplum Top (Simons)
– Trousers (Smart Set)
– Heels (Old Navy)
– Bow (ALDO Accessories)
