Let’s Style Some Fashion Spice Back into Our Life!

Nearing the end of a dreary, hectic, panicky year…Are we all, still in a casual laid back styling mood? Really? I honestly don’t think so. It’s true that we can’t attend any grand events or celebrations like we used to, that’s for sure; but this confinement is feeling pretty much like a sort of modern times war. Crazy, scary, somber, dangerous and lonely times…

Fashion moves with the times and is a direct representation of what we’re living. For me, I don’t want that to be slouchy indoor dressing forever. Enough already: I’m banning the word ‘lounge’ from my vocab! Delete.

Here’s a bit of history: After WW2 (ok I’ll be quick- don’t wanna bore you here- but the history of fashion teacher in me just can’t help it!)- as I was saying…After the war and even during the last bit of it- women longed for a change! They didn’t want the drab clothing and poverty looks they were forced into by war.

Imagine that women went as far as drawing up their legs because they couldn’t find or afford decorative lacey stockings! I’m not making this up:

And- right out of that war, along came Dior with his New Look- back to the fancy and to hope and dreaming again!

I say that’s what we’re all feeling inside- a longing for glamour, and over-the top. Don’t you feel like dressing up? Even if it’s gonna be comfortable and casual- please- oh please- make it funky, glamourous and a bit on the spicy!! Are you on board?

Enough with the drab- and please LOSE THE SLIPPERS!!

I was excited to style up this gorgeous 2 piece ensemble by Eva Varro because casual (when you’re going nowhere) can feel and look as cool and glam as can be when you’re wearing something this beautiful. I am loving the black with its touch of animal print that adds all the spice I need. Ladies- you need this outfit. Ultimate pick-me-upper:)

#Confessionoftheday: 2020 is on its way out – and I can’t wait. But in the meantime, I’m transitioning out of the loungewear and back into the stuff I actually want to strut in. After all, the festive season is upon us, let’s spice it up!

Are you in?

SCORPIO Fashion Styling- ZODIAC Fashionphile Edition!

Mystery, mystery, mystery is what this fabulous woman is all about. You can’t really tell what’s going on in her mind- and when it comes to her wardrobe, there always seems to be a touch of drama without revealing it all. This lady is classy, sexy, chic or vampy all in one. She doesn’t really want you to know what she’s all about. Intrigue is the key word here!

So, let’s look at some Scorpio styling babes here and see what emanates from their style. Is there really mystery? I think so!

Ellen Pompeo is all that and more…

If you want to add a little spice and mystery to your styling, why don’t you step it up to a Scorpio girl’s standards…and keep’em wondering. Remember: Intense.

So when I tried to think of something to style up in Scorpio taste- I looked no further than to this gorgeous- chic and mysteriously sexy EVA VARRO black sultry flower print head-turner. This dress hugs all my curves, leaving much to the imagination.

In this Eva Varro Long Sleeve Chinese dress, I felt gorgeous, powerful, confident and completely in control. Scorpio intensity with all the mystery- am I right?

Here’s me trying to style it up Scorpio Style…Did I nail it?

And here’s a tiny clip of me styling it up- Watch:

Are you a Scorpio? Would you dress as one?

Stay tuned next month for Exhibit: SAGGITARIUS party gal!

Linkup Party is on! Fabulous Fridays and the Week’s Recap!

Is everyone weekend-ready? It’s going to be Thanksgiving weekend for us here in Canada. But this year will be so different. This pandemic has got us almost on lockdown- well not really, but it sure feels like it since we aren’t allowed anyone in our homes except for those living with us. What are we gonna do?? My husband says he’s still cooking that turkey and I guess the kids will have to do the ‘pick- up- at- Mom & Dad’s- curb’ thing!

So what have I been styling up since last Friday? Well, last Saturday had me posting these fabulous leopard-hemmed jeans by Joseph Ribkoff from 1ereavenue.com. I am crazy about the fit! And you all know how hard it is for me to style and wear jeans if the fit isn’t perfect and comfy. But just look at these!!

And this week I also styled up this gorgeousness of a dress by Eva Varro – LA Designer. I mean can you believe the motif and colours in this beauty?!! I’ll be styling up more of the Eva Varro Collection and posting it for you to see. It’s mind-blowingly stunning!!

And of course more styling challenges! This one was on Instagram for #trendsinyourcloset by @imanorbyah and @annazzon. I styled up a mix of Leather, vests, and mixing prints.

And my favourite challenge always has to be by @affectionatelyaudrey for Intimates worn outside! And it was a double- whammy since Anna and Norbyah both had this in their challenge as well! So it worked out perfectly. Loved wearing my nighty-wear out!

And Thank you so much to the wonderful Michelle of My Bijou Life Online for featuring me!! As well, my beautiful and always there for me- friend Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine9 also featured me (for my post:LIBRA Fashion Styling- ZODIAC Fashionphile Edition ). Thanks so much!

I always feel honoured and so blessed to be part of this fabulous community. I love what we all contribute to this platform- but even more than that, I love what you fabulous blogger ladies are all about!!

And now onto My Favourite Linkup Fashionista of the Week: Lee of Leegalleablonde.com

I‘m crazy about these boots and this whole look!! Isn’t she just adorable!!!

And- My Favourite Linkup Read of the Week was by: Alison of Midlife and Beyond for her post Turning Sixty – No Big Deal! Such a fascinating read that brought me down my own memory lane as well. Such an interesting and fun read that defies ageism and its stereotypes! Loved this!

Turning Sixty – No Big Deal!!  (30th September 2020)
