French Curves: GRAOU

IMG_5521-0
As most of you probably know by now, I’m from Montreal, and I speak French!

Today, I’m celebrating my heritage and joining up with the French Curves collaboration!!! This is the monthly outfit photo challenge with the french touch, which takes place each 16th of the month, and was founded by the beautiful, and always so chic, Vanoue of The Curvy and Curly Closet.

But fear not, my Anglo loves! I’ve summarized it in English for you, because I wouldn’t want you to miss out!

The theme of this month’s challenge is GRAOU, or, as you’re probably more familiar with… RAWR!!!

I wear a lot of leopard print. Whether my outfit is super sexy, or conservative, a little leopard has the ability to lend a certain sense of animalism to anything it touches.

So I went with one of my favourite pieces – a pretty, black & red leopard print bomber from Addition Elle.

To have some fun with the theme, I paired it with an amazing snake print skirt, also from Addition Elle.

And because everyone knows that the secret lies in the details, the cherry on top of this animal print cake, is definitely an adorable leopard print necklace from Aldo, which compliments perfectly, the African bronze bracelet I’ve chosen to go with it!

Et alors, sans attendre un moment de plus, ça me done beaucoup de plaisir de vous annoncer que je suis maintenant une participante dans le French Curves Challenge, créé par la belle, et toujours si chic, Vanoue, de The Curvy and Curly Closet !!!

Chaque 16 du mois un nouveau thème, et ce mois-ci… GRAOU !!!

GRAOUUU !!! Le son du du sex, hihiii, n’est-ce pas? Mais pour moi, le motif léopard se présente souvent dans mes tenues, soit-elles sexy ou conservatrice, car il a la capacité de prêter une certaine sens d’animalisme et sexualité a tout ce qu’il touche.

Pour ce challenge, j’ai décidé sur une de mes pièces préférées – ce joli jacket de Addition Elle, qui combine un style aviateur avec un formidable motif de léopard rouge et noir !

Pour jouer un peu avec le thème, j’ai décidé d’avoir un peu de fun, et de d’accoupler mon jacket avec une jupe de motif serpent, aussi d’Addition Elle.

Et tout le monde sait que le secret d’une belle tenue reste dans les détails, alors ce collier super cute, d’Aldo, en motif léopard est la cerise sur le gâteau. Il va parfaitement bien avec mon bracelet africain en bronze aussi !

My Curvy Valentine & Body Positive Project

IMG_5244
What happens when six fabulous, body positive, plus size babes collab on a Valentine’s Day post?

I think the answer is pretty obvious – pure, unadulterated hotness!!!

I can’t remember, in my lifetime, ever actually celebrating a romantic, the-way-they-do-it-in-the-movies, Valentine’s Day… I mean, I’ve done the dinner & dancing thing, but I’ve just always been more of a Netflix (Blockbuster, in the good old days), and beer kinda girl.

But this year… This year is gonna be different! Starting with this amazing collab, organized my the positively swoon-worthy Jolene, of Boardroom Blonde!

IMG_5351
I mean, how stunning is she in this vibrant red!? Such a classic V Day look, done to perfection!

IMG_5350
And if you loved that look (and those balloons too), then you’ll completely adore this feminine, flirty look from Arizona’s own Canadian princess, and my blogger boo, Crystal, of Sometimes Glam!

IMG_5353
She nailed her Curvy Valentine look in the most delicious shade of pink I’ve ever seen! What a babe!!!

IMG_5352
As much as I love the traditional pinks and reds that surround this day for lovers, I’m all for breaking away from tradition and trying something different; and that’s exactly what the fabulous and oh so chic Jeniese, of The Jenesaisquoi did right here!

IMG_5355
This gal works it every time! That skirt! Those stripes!!!! And I love how she kept just a touch of that V Day flare, with that adorable red heart on her top, and red detail on her shoes!

IMG_5354
And it looks like this February, black & white stripes are the name of the game, because not only did Janiese rock the look, but so is the beautiful Mary Demetra, of GlitterOdyssey in her YouTube video (which I must admit, from this teaser, I wish I was a part of – she had me at marshmallows)…

IMG_5395
As well as the ridiculously foxy, Jessica, of Life and Style of Jessica Kane!

IMG_5393
Like, okay… This whole look is giving me life!!! She’s just so sexy!

IMG_5394
Last, but not least, I decided to channel Valentine’s Day by wearing this totally romantic chiffon dress (a great sale find from Addition Elle), that somehow has a bit if a Victorian feel about it, maybe…? If that makes any sense…?

I’ve paired it with a nude clutch & pumps, and for even more romance, some stunning peach & pearl accessories.

A Bad Btch in Bstrd

It’s been a minute since my last post… Mostly because it’s been too cold to shoot outdoors… But since things aren’t looking up anytime soon with regards to weather for us Montrealers… I decided that a bare-legged minidress was the way to go! That’s right!!! F&@% YOU WINTER!!!

IMG_5358
And how does a bad B accessorize a minidress at -36ºC? (That’s -32.8ºF for my American friends.) Why, with a fab blazer by Nicolette Mason for Modcloth, heart shaped sunnies (I see you, Valentine’s Day!), a little LV, and the absolute most beautifully delicate and versatile piece of jewelry out there – the infinity chain, from Canadian based, bstrd.com

I mean, this piece is so badass!!! Not only is it crafted out of gorgeous, high end sterling silver and gold vermeil chain, adorned with precious little bobbles of opal and Swarovski crystal, but it can be worn in a multitude of ways to compliment any outfit for any occasion!

I tried out a a few different styling options with my infinity chain, and I honestly really loved how all of them worked out!

It looks so perfect worn as a full on body chain!

IMG_5362

IMG_5357
It makes a really pretty necklace, worn either short…

IMG_5376
Or long!

IMG_5378
But I’ve got to say, though… My favourite way to wear it is across my body like a beautiful jewelled sash!

IMG_5359

IMG_5363
The fact that this piece is so dainty, and tasteful, yet so edgy and bold at the same time is what really makes me swoon.

IMG_5379
So please do go take a look for yourselves, because there are so many unique styles to choose from at bstrd.com; and although the sizes of body jewelry are listed as one size fits all, custom orders/measurements are welcome, and can be discussed with a quick email to: [email protected], or in the comments section of your order!
