Canadian Brands to Support This Christmas

It’s been a while since my last post but I’ve been very active on Instagram! Can you believe it’s already the middle of December? Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I have lots of fun holiday content coming up for you. I always make it a point to support local and shop Canadian when I’m doing my Christmas shopping so I thought I’d share a few of my favourite Canadian brands to support this Christmas.

Suzy Shier

I’ve been a loyal Suzy Shier customer for years, long before I ever even thought about starting a fashion blog. I love their stylish workwear, casual wear and party dresses. This longstanding Canadian retailer never disappoints when it comes to affordable and fashionable clothing for women. I have so many Suzy Shier pieces in my wardrobe! They also have a great loyalty program called the Prestige Card. It costs $25 to purchase on an annual basis and saves you 10% on any purchase, regardless of sale price. Not a prestige member? No problem! Whether you’re a loyalty member or not you can save 10% off you any regular priced items with my discount code 10WKENDFASHION

Toboggan Canada

If you live in Canada, you’re no stranger to the fact that a Winter jacket is an essential item! Toboggan Canada offers an expansive range of Fall and Winter jackets for men and women. The Eva B Long II Parka is my go-to jacket for Winter. It keeps me warm and fashionable! I get so many compliments and questions every time I wear it.  If long jackets aren’t your style you can also check out their collection of puffers and cropped jackets. The Chloe jacket is a great alternative for a more sporty look. Don’t forget to check out their vast collection of men’s jackets as well. See something you like one? I’ve got you covered, use the code: Weekend20 to save 20% off your purchase!

Rebecca Rowe

If you’ve been following my blogging journey you know that I recently collaborated with Ottawa based designer Rebecca Rowe on a capsule collection. It has been wonderful working with Rebecca and in addition to our capsule she offers a wide range of stylish and comfortable activewear items. Click SHOP to check out all her collections.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my recommendations for Canadian brands to check out this holiday season! Stay tuned for more exciting Christmas content. Happy Shopping!

Capsule Collection with Rebecca Rowe

I have some very exciting news to share! I’m launching a workwear capsule collection!! I’m so excited to be able to finally share this news with all of you. I’ve collaborated with Ottawa based designer Rebecca Rowe (known for her capsule collections) to create a collection of feminine women’s workwear.

Rebecca and I have been working on this collection for over a year and dealt with many challenges along the way but we are so happy to finally launch our project.


I first met Rebecca in March of 2020 when I was invited to attend her popup shop at Bayshore Shopping Centre. I had been following Rebecca on Instagram for a while and I was familiar with her work. What really caught my attention was how her clothing was tailored to fit many different body types and could be customized to suit your personal style.

A few months past and I approached to ask if she’d be interested in collaborating on a capsule collection. I wanted to focus on workwear as I had always struggled to find professional clothing that was also feminine and fit well. After a few discussions about style and fashion icons The Weekend Fashionista collection was born.

This collection is inspired by one of my favourite classic fashionistas Audrey Hepburn.

Here’s a look at our pieces:

Tiffany Dress

Do you believe in overdressing? Audrey Hepburn sure did. This boat neck black and white dress is perfect for the boardroom or after work cocktails. Inspired by Audrey’s Hubert De Givenchy gown from Breakfast at Tiffany’s this LBD is fitted yet comfortable and effortlessly chic.

Ann Blouse

Finally a crop top you can wear to work! This cropped printed blouse was inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe in Roman Holiday. Easy to wear and pair with the Gabrielle skirt or Anya trousers this versatile piece is a great addition to your workwear wardrobe! Pair it with high waisted jeans for a causal chic weekend look too.

Anya Trouser

High waisted but also high fashion! These trousers mean business (or pleasure). Inspired by Audrey’s style in Roman Holiday when she goes incognito as Anya and famously dons more casual attire to hide the fact that she’s royalty. These trousers are perfect for a chic yet playful workwear look. Pair it with the Ann cropped blouse or your top of choice.

Gabrielle Skirt

What workwear wardrobe is complete without a quintessential pencil skirt. You’ll be skirting around town in style in this fitted skirt with front ruching inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s character Gabrielle Simpson in Paris When It Sizzles.  It can be paired with the Ann cropped blouse or your a top from your existing wardrobe.

Although this collection is inspired by Audrey Hepburn we understand that not everyone has the same body type. All pieces in the collection can be customized to fit and flatter you! Rebecca also has some tips on what to do if you love someone’s style but have a different body type:
