Wedding Season Go-To

Wedding season is in full swing. Every weekend I see a blissful newlywed couple posing for their wedding photos along the water not far from where I Iive.

With, at the very least, a wedding or two to attend each summer, we inevitably scope out the dress scene! 

Of course, it’s all about the blushing bride’s dress — obvi; and the handsome groom too… But I still like to make a statement. After all, you’re bound to bump into at least one ex, or common girlfriend who talked behind your back that one time, and whom you absolutely can’t stand, and now you need to look extra hot in front of — err… Maybe that’s just me…? *nervous laugh*

But anyway, there’s no harm in bringing your A game to a wedding, because let’s face it… At some point during the evening, at least some eyes will be on you

Searching for the perfect dress can seem a daunting task, but that’s why I love Canadian owned (and internationally shipping) SexyPlus Clothing! 

The owner (and absolute dollface), Stefanie (a plus size woman herself) has curated a wonderful collection of dresses in all styles to suit your wedding season (or any season) needs, so you don’t have to search. She just gets it. 

This gorgeous and luxurious little black & white number is actually a convertible dress that can also be worn strapless. I must admit though, my favourite of the two is this classic halter style. 

I love its retro feel so much, that I decided to play it up even more!



I paired it with a cute head scarf, cork wedges, and a vintage metallic mesh clutch that I thrifted (kachiiiiing) earlier this summer!
It’s chic, old world sexy, and perfect for a wedding, or any occasion! 

So definitely take a peek at the selection over at SexyPlus! There are so many gorgeous dresses! Whether your style is elegant, or super sassy, you’ll be sure to find something that’s just perfect for you!

Busy at Penningtons 

I’ve been busy over on The Penningtons Blog! Last week, I styled some fabulous dresses for day and nighttime! (That white one? Yeah, that one is mine now!!!)

And this week was all about how T-shirts are awesome whether it’s the weekend or during the work week! (Heyyy, cute black tee! You now belong to meee!!!)

So head on over to The Penningtons Blog to see what I’ve been up to, and of course, for all the deets on the amazing ensembles!!!

Summertime Happiness


Summer is right around the corner, and we all know what that means!!! More shopping!!!

I’ve been busy putting together my summer wardrobe – lots of white, lots of color, and lots of prints and texture!

Today, I’m rocking this fun, tribal print bodycon dress from Forever 21+ (which is sadly, sold out right now, but similar options are available). I’ve paired it with these great turquoise wedges from Payless, some gold bangles, and these amazing, Forever 21 multicolored hoop earrings, for a bright, vibrant look that’s perfect for summertime!

Magnificent Maxi

Maxi Madness

I’d like to start this post with an apology for these particularly blurry pictures. My youngest son threw my iPhone into his potty and peed on it. Why? Because he is three years old and is trying to ruin my life. Ha. Don’t worry… I still love him.

In any event, I had promised a blog post to my Facebook fans, wearing this stunning Igigi maxi dress, so regardless of the fuzzy images – here it is!

All the dresses I’ve ever ordered from Igigi have been of excellent quality, and this one is no exception.  It’s fully lined and drapes absolutely perfectly on my body.  The fabric is light yet dense and the print is rich and indulgent.  I’ve paired it with a simple black canvas cork wedge from Wal Mart, a black Babooshka Boutique turban, wrapped around my bun, an oversized gold chain, gold teardrop hoop earrings, and gold cuff bracelet from Forever 21, to create an elegant, seductive look that works for any occasion, from tea with the ladies, an outdoor wedding, to cruise wear!

Just a note, from my experience, Igigi’s maxi dresses run true to size, perhaps slightly larger, and tend to be quite long, so be ready to have your hem raised if you’re anywhere under 5’11”, or plan to wear flats.




Extra Credit Part Deux

Extra Credit Part Deux

So, this past December, I had already decided upon my new year’s resolution – to stop being afraid of wearing color. I kicked the year off, a little in advance, by wearing a fabulous dress from Monif C. which I featured in a blog post – Color Me Fearless. Soon after, I realized that my photos didn’t show this dress off as well as it deserved, so I wrote another post – Extra Credit, and I showed off just how sublime the print of this dress truly is and promised to take better pictures in the dress- pictures worthy of its greatness.

So here you go, once more… As promised – the most mesmerizing print I’ve ever seen, let alone worn, the most beautiful dress and the most flawless combination of class and vibrant color. I just had to makes sure this dress got the credit it deserved, and not to mention, give credit to the amazing and talented Monif Clarke, of Monif C. for her fantastic designs!!!

Ahoy Matey!


Nautical themed clothing has been around for ages, and we all know the stereotype of the miserable, long faced kid, who’s been forced into a sailor suit (even though he is much too old for it) by his overbearing mum (often wearing a matching outfit) for a family portrait… Right?

Well… This look, while having a sporty, nautical vibe, is far from being the sailor suit in an awkward family photo. The striking navy and red color block “Marcie” dress from Monif C. is sporty yet sophisticated. I’ve paired it with lovely, white patent leather flats from Aldo, and gold jewelry to really anchor this look’s feel without going overboard.

Having at least one fantastic nautical look in your wardrobe is a great way to ensure that your transition into spring will be smooth sailing!

Black is the New Red

Black is the New Red

Well… Could it get any better? Valentine’s Day on a Friday night!!! Whether you’re spending the evening by your sweetheart’s side or going to a fabulous V-Day singles party, you need the perfect dress!

Traditionally, red is the go-to color to celebrate love and romance; it’s sultry and seductive and definitely gets the point across; but classic black will never go out of style and is always a sexy option too. That’s why I’ve decided to go with my favorite little black dress (or LBD for those of you who love your acronyms) to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year.

This gorgeous frock from Michel Antoni Collection is both sexy and elegant all at once. Its tasteful cut combined with the pizzazz of sequins and cold shoulder detail spice things up just enough make it the perfect mix of class and provocativeness. In this dress, paired with my favorite gold pumps, I’m all set to enjoy a fantastic evening reminding my hubby why he fell in love with me!

Once again, as I mentioned in my earlier post, Happy Valentine’s Day to all! And one more thing… Whether you’re in love, whether you’re single or your heart has been broken, somebody loves you and you are never alone.
