Sparkle and Shein this Holiday Season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I simply love Christmas and the holiday season, and what better way to celebrate than adding some Shein to your wardrobe.

I discovered Shein.com about a year ago but I wasn’t aware that they shipped to Canada until recently. I love this online store as they have a huge selection of stylist pieces at affordable prices.

If you know me you know that I love everything that sparkles, so I was thrilled to find these two sparkly holiday skirts on Shein. The first look is a more retro inspired high waited flare skirt. I love the gold flower print on the this skirt. The high waist is also very flattering. I paired it with a black shimmer bodysuit and pumps for a more retro-inspired look.

The second skirt I picked up is this ombre sequin mini that I just adore! This piece is fun, flirty and perfect for a party. It would be a great addition to a new year’s eve outfit (I’ll also be sharing a new year’s eve outfit idea shortly). I opted for a more subdued look and paired the skirt with a black turtleneck and boots.

Have you ever shopped on Shein and if so what has your experience been like?

His and Hers Christmas Looks

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been a while since my last post but I’m happy to be back! I’ve been pretty busy with lots of good changes lately but I’m happy to announce that I’ll be transitioning to a new job in the 2019 which will give me more time to devote to blogging.

If you know me well you know that Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. This Christmas is especially great for me as I get to share it with family, loved ones and friends here in Canada. I don’t know about you but adding a little red to my wardrobe always helps me get in to the Christmas spirit. I had my better half Sash help me out with putting together these his and hers Christmas looks.

I was initially looking for a Santa dress but I found this adorable faux fur trim velvet skirt on Asos.I used the skirt as inspiration for my Christmas theme outfit. I added a simple long sleeved tee and boots to give it a less formal, fun look.

I’ve linked the items from our outfits and set below. We had a lot of fun with this photo shoot thanks to our photographer Ricardo Boreka and Lenz Studio.

I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas! I’ll be back with some New Year’s Eve looks soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Mad for Plaid

It’s December, which it’s the Holiday season has officially kicked off! Plaid is definitely as trend I’m loving this holiday season. It’s so chic and festive which definitely helps you get in to the Holiday spirit. Ive put together some of my favourite plaid looks for the holiday season.

Faux Wrap Tartan Skirt


Wanna be tartan something? Well then this skirt is for you. I like the faux wrap style of this skirt and the faux leather detailing at the waist. It really has a Christmas feel to it with the red plaid. I paired this skirt with this adorable sweater from Walmart for a cute and festive Christmas look.

Plaid Bodycon Dress

The moment I saw this plaid dress at Garage I simply had to have it. I love the red and green colours in this dress. As this is a strapless dress and we’re currently in the middle of Winter here in Canada, I paired it with a fitted turtleneck and tall boots. I’m a huge fan of this comfortable yet chic holiday look. This particular piece is part of the Sierra Furtado collection at Garage which includes other cute plaid pieces that are just perfect for the season.

Belted Mini Skirt

Plaid doesn’t have to be reserved for holiday parties, you can easily incorporate it into your weekday look with this belted skirt from Forever 21. The blue and green colours in this skirt make it less “christmassy” and more work appropriate. I styled it by adding a white turtleneck with opaque tights and flats to give it more of a Winter feel.

What do you think about plaid print – festive or faux pas?

Sequin Mini Skirt

Nothing says holiday style like a little bling! I found this cute sequin mini skirt at Forever 21 and I’m just thrilled about it! This skirt is perfect for a holiday party, New Year’s Eve perhaps? I like the diamond patterning on the skirt and the frill at the bottom gives it that extra bit of flirtyness and femininity. The rose gold colour of the sequins are a nice balance with the black outline of the diamonds and add a more neutral tone to this flashy number.

I paired this skirt with a body suit that I also picked up at Forever 21. The body suit has just a hint of shimmer when the light hits it and adds to the festive flair of the outfit. I decided to go with black opaque tights to balance out all the bling in this outfit, however you could wear sheer black tights with the skirt as well. This is outfit is perfect if you’re looking to add some sparkle to your holiday wardrobe ๐Ÿ™‚

Blue Sparkle Dress

Bring on the bling! As you probably noticed I’ve been featuring some of my holiday party looks in the past couple of weeks. I’ve teamed up with one of my favourite Canadian brands,ย  Suzy Shier to bring you guys some great holiday party outfit ideas ๐Ÿ™‚ Wrapping up my holiday style posts is this beautiful blue sparkle dress.

This dress is form fitting and figure hugging. The draping in the front gives it more of a feminine flair and ofcourse I love the sparkle! Imaging lighting up the dance floor in this dress on new year’s eve?! You’ll certainly be the belle of the ball. The best part about this dress is that it’s just $45 regular price! I can’t imagine a better deal. If you are a prestige card member you can save an additional 10% off this already amazing price.ย  If you don’t have a prestige card you can get one in-store or online.

I hope you enjoyed my Holiday Style series ๐Ÿ™‚ Special thanks to Suzy Shier for letting me play dress up in all these gorgeous outfits!

Black Halter Jumpsuit

 

 

How’s your holiday party shopping going? I got another great outfit at Suzy Shier! I found this form fitting black halter jumpsuit that is the ideal mix of sophisticated and chic. The high neck accentuates the shoulders and the sheer detail in the front gives it just a hint of flirtyness. The best part about this jumpsuit is that it’s so comfy! Comfort is hard to come by when it comes to party clothes but this outfit is an exception ๐Ÿ˜‰

To accessorize I chose to add some sparkle! I re-purposed a beaded scarf I picked up at Suzy as a belt to break up the black of the jumpsuit. You can still find the scarf in store!ย  I also added a sparkly silver clutch to add a bit more glitter and glam. You can also find the purse in-store. I’d say it’s worth the visit ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

 

 

Burgundy Lace Dress

 

 

Have you started shopping for your holiday outfits yet? I have! I’ve got a few Christmas parties and business events coming up so I’ve decided to stock up on some party wear. I found this elegant burgundy lace dress at Suzy Shier that is just perfect for a Christmas party.

The laceย  detail automatically givesย  the dress a touch of elegance and class. The deep burgundy colour is just perfect for the holiday season and adds a festive touch. The black banding around the bottom of the dress gives it just a hint of sheer. This dress is the perfect mix of demure and daring. I paired the dress with opaque black tights and black heels but you could do a bare leg if you’re more daring.

To accessorize I picked up this cute black clutch purse with a pearl clasp. I must say I am loving ttheย  accessories at Suzy Shier and their holiday collection. As always Suzy Shier offers great clothes at an even better price. The dress retails for just $55! Suzy has been known to have 40% off sales so keep your eyes open for the next one and you could pick up the dress for even less ๐Ÿ˜‰ Who doesn’t love a great deal!

Black Velvet Romper

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas truly is my favourite time of year. I love all the family gatherings, the lights, the cooking and of course the holiday fashion! This year I’m noticing the velvet trend with many retailers showcasing it in their holiday collections. Dynamite launched a few of their holiday items a couple of weeks ago and I picked up this cute and comfy black velvet romper.

The velvet adds a touch of elegance and class to go along with the chic deep black colour. The romper is strapless but comes with attachable straps if you need a little more support or just want to change up the the look. I paired it with this off-white long blazer that I got at Dynamite a few years ago, however you can still find a similar white blazer in store. For the legs I decided to go with a patterned tights as it’s getting a bit colder here in Ottawa. If you’re lucky enough to live in a warmer climate you could opt for a bare leg with this piece. Opaque black or coloured tights would also work or you could go for the bare leg illusion and pair it with some flesh coloured tights. The best thing about this romper is that it’s not strictly a seasonal piece, it can be worn year round in lieu of a little black dress perhaps? ๐Ÿ˜‰
