Cecilia Racicot: New Ottawa fashion designer for real girly girls

I’m going to sound like a broken record, but I love supporting local, especially when the business is run by a woman. This post is not just about any woman, it’s a new Fashion Designer in Ottawa, and you are going to love her! Not only is her work of utmost highest quality, she has fair prices, makes clothes to measure and her styles are going to blow each season out of the park! I present you Cecilia Racicot.

Cecilia Racicot designs are created by Ottawa cool girl, Megan Racicot.

CECILIA RACICOT was born out of a love for fashion and a desire to create. The brand offers an exclusive portfolio of the current trends of the season and tailor made one-of-a-kind apparel.

Launched in 2016 as the go-to for made-to-measure skirts, CECILIA RACICOT has expanded to include women’s vests, dresses and accessories.

Proudly designed and made in Canada, CECILIA RACICOT emerges as an affordable lifestyle brand for women of all shapes and sizes, embracing beauty and individuality.

If you are looking for fun, flirty pieces with an edge, I urge you to visit the site and spend all of next week’s pay. On my birthday a few weeks ago, I treated myself to the Ezra jacket, a fun floral quilted pattern that will add a zing to any boring outfit. You know, on those days that I am feeling less creative.

Processed with Snapseed.
Gorgeous quilted floral pattern.

Then… I ordered some more! I can’t wait to get the Rowan skirt soon!

I really wish Megan the best of luck in her work and hope she is here to stay. Now, I just have to convince her to design enough pieces for a fashion show… won’t you help me encourage her!

Le Veston- My Denim Vest

Le Veston

A few observations. First, I feel so 80’s today with my new vest. Second, I might be obsessed with denim… hahaha

Today’s proutfit is brought to you by my new Old Navy light wash denim vest, perfect to hide chubs and rolls! he he We can’t all be sleek but we sure can try and hide our flaws!

This cut is perfect for me as it hits high, right at my waistline and really helps accentuate it. For a more pear shaped body type, or if you are blessed with a booty, I would recommend a longer version, the Plus Denim Vest.

These vests are perfect for the summer. They keep you cool, but covered. Give you a more tailored finish without being too restricting and best of all, as I mentioned above… it helps to hide imperfections. I will be wearing it with skirts and dresses./.. so watch out!

Yes, I have imperfections. It doesn’t mean that I hate myself. I am just on a mission to find flattering clothes and help you do the same!
