MY STYLE: DRESS FOR SUCCESS

Last month was a very exciting one for me. Along with taking part in the first ever Curvy Expo, I started an amazing new job!  Finding a new job meant heading out for interviews and, naturally, meant finding a new outfit; one that made me feel fierce, confident, and beautiful. So off to Addition Elle I went!

The first look I chose was a teal and black paneled dress. Although the print caught my eye, I avoided trying it on until the lovely sales associates convinced me otherwise. I’m so glad they did because it fit perfectly and was beyond flattering! The dark panels give you the illusion of an hourglass figure, and the fabric is lush with a bit of weight to it, causing it to drape all the right places. I can’t believe I almost passed this beauty by because I thought the fabric wouldn’t flatter my shape, but let this be a lesson to me and all you fabulous ladies out there – you never know how something will look on you until you try it on.

For my second look, I went with a fun, little black dress. Not only was the cut of this dress super flattering just like my first choice, but the entire thing is covered in eyelet-esque cut outs that add the perfect touch of playfulness. I paired it with a coral blazer for a bright and bold summer look, but you can add whatever you want over this dress for endless style possibilities. With both of these looks leaving me feeling confident and beautiful, I knew I could walk into any interview looking as good on the outside as I felt on the inside. Which look is your favourite?

MY STYLE: SPRING SCARVES

One thing that often presents a challenge during the transition from cooler to warmer months is what to wear. This past week, the weather in Toronto has been a random mix of torrential downpours (see: what’s happening outside my window right now), chilly mornings, and warm, breezy afternoons. So, what the heck do you wear? Enter: SCARVES!

All of my Spring scarves are light and easy to wear, keeping you warm if the air is crisp, but not too warm if the sun starts shining. And they’re a great way to add a pop of colour and whimsy to any outfit, whether you’re casually running some errands (throw it over a solid tee or sweater) or heading out for some fun on the town.
