Full Skirts and the Petite

ShareI recently purchased two full skirts, one from Femme de Carriere, a Montreal-based clothing store with office-friendly clothing (both casual and formal) and another from a Kate Spade outlet in Niagara Falls, New York.  Some people think that  these skirts can overwhelm a petite frame, but it really depends on the style (e.g. how much […]

BCBG Dress for a Bat Mitzvah

ShareThis weekend, my husband and I drove down to Rochester, NY to attend his cousin’s Bat Mitzvah.  Though we’ve been married for nearly two years and together for close to seven, this was my  first bat mitzvah service – I had attended many receptions before.  It was a weekday service at a Reform temple, and […]

Team Blue Makes Another Appearance: Wearing Greta to a Wedding

ShareI spent the long weekend in my husband’s hometown of Ottawa, Ontario to attend a wedding of one of his school friends.  Ottawa (capital of Canada, for those who aren’t familiar with Canadian politics and history) is a gorgeous city with a beautiful waterfront, exactly where the wedding ceremony was held.  The ceremony was then […]

Petite Friendliness and Hervé Léger: A Total Yay?

ShareI like much of the collection, especially the pairing of the dresses with tall boots (this style is pretty much all I wear in the winter.  Glad to see that I won’t look out of place next year – lol).  Most of the skirt lengths are above the knee, which means that they’d be right […]

Share So New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week started yesterday, presenting collections for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2012 season.  As with previous seasons, many of the shows were streamed online, including BCBGMaxAzria.  Though I really like the colour blocking, palette and found the designs to be better than past seasons, the skirt lengths, as usual, were really […]

Webitor’s Picks: A Couple of Teal Looks

Another top colour for fall this season is teal.  It wasn’t a colour that I thought I could wear well at first and I actually avoided for a long time.  But then, I decided to do something different, tried it and fell in love.  Though I don’t think the colour works well on everyone as… [Continue Reading]

BCBG Trench From Spring/Summer 2011 Collection

ShareI’ve been lusting over this coat for a couple of months, but at $418 (Canadian), I just couldn’t make the purchase.  It finally came down in price to $251 (Canadian – it’s $174 at Lord & Taylor in the US) and I dove in.  Considering my size – XXS – and where my closest store […]
