The holiday season is here and with that another office party is around the corner. Every year my work throws amazing glamorous, banquet hall parties and every year I need to bring it in style.

This year I went for simple, elegant and cute with a vibrant red jumper that I found at Ziza Boutique, located in Oakville, Ontario and they have an on-line site and can ship everywhere.
My curvy and plus sisters this one is for you and it’s also available in black!

This red jumper screams holiday jingle bells all the way, with a fitted bottom to accentuate my curves. I love the loose top portion which allows me to indulge in extra appetizers and drinks without feeling too snug lol.

Last but not least, the back of the jumper has an exposed zipper, which from the back gives you the illusion of it being 2 pieces.

My office party look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of leopard print pumps and a dazzling necklace.

Nancy’s Look

This dress channels my inner Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” post make-over of course!lol Not only did I choose this gorgeous designer dress because of the vibrant colour, but the fit was freaking phenomenal.

First and foremost, we tall girls know that length is everything, and this dress hits me at the perfect spot to keep it cute and classy at that corporate holiday event. The colour is so in keeping with the season matching so perfectly with my boy St. Nick, LOL, and the fit and flare style accentuates my waist-line, creating more of an hourglass silhouette. Added to this long list of attributes is that it also has pockets (this frock rocks)!

But ladies, we all know that the holiday season is one of the most expensive times of the year, so wouldn’t it be great to save a few bucks at this time of year and still make a splash at any holiday party? Well, I’ve got good news for you, you can rent this stunning designer dress at a fraction of the cost. Fitzroy Boutique’s got you covered!

Accessorizing this look was veritable child’s play; I rocked these to die for high heeled silver sandals and a fun, festive clutch. The requisite bling was then added and I  was ready to work the room at that office holiday event!

This year I decided to remix my black business suit and added these faux fur leather front paneled pants.  I’ve feature both the pants and the jacket before.  I love when clothing in my wardrobe can do double duty!!

I first featured this peplum jacket in this post we did called Les Poupounes de Luxes which offers clothing for women of ALL SIZES! 3 cheers for companies that recognize and offer clothing for all women!  I love the of the style jacket as the flirty peplum  conceals any parts of your body that one might not be crazy about while cinching me in at my waist.

I paired this gem of a jacket with these faux leather front paneled pants that are super comfy and ultra chic and I featured them here on the blog in the post we did called Suzy Shier.  The pants are on pull on and feature a banded waist.  They also have small angled zips on the front.

To spice this look up further I added hot pink pumps and this blinged out necktie necklace!

I said it on Cityline and I’ll say it again; my office holiday party look is all about sticking to the 3 c’s: cute, conservative and classy. That holiday party is just not the place to show off Conchita and Rosita (as my friends lovingly calls her boobs!lol). Nor is it time to rock that sexy little number you wore to the club last week that showed off that mole on your thigh! We wanna show your colleagues that you got style and class whether it be in the boardroom or on the dance-floor!

lt-edited-img_8208

I simply LOVE this dress I picked up at Ziza Boutique. The colour is what first caught my eye and the style made me have to have it! It has the perfect amount of funky with the cool frill detail and the classic fit is perfect to highlight my figure.

lt-edited-img_8305

Now, let me tell you about these shoes!!!! Shoes can make or break a party night right? If your feet hurt, you will become a party pooper. These gorgeous blue babies, again from Ziza Boutique, made my breath catch in my throat when I first laid eyes on them! I tried to play it cool, but the girls could tell, it was love at first sight!

lt-edited-img_8392

I kept my accessories simple, yet festive, with a pair of sparkly earrings and bracelet, and of course some jewels for my fingers!

This look will definitely leave a positive lasting impression at any office holiday event!

The Fab Four

Les Poupounes de Luxes

grp re-edited IMG_8588

When Canadian, Montreal-based brand Les Poupounes de Luxe collaborates with Fab Four Fashion, one can only expect that “We the North” are at their very best.  Their brand’s message is “We are Montreal Born, our clothes are Canadian made, and Les Poupounes de Luxe stands for a new standard in ready-to-wear clothing uniting women of all sizes”, and Fab Four Fashion is all about that!

Leslie’s Look

Every woman needs a little black dress (LBD) in her wardrobe. It’s one of the simplest ways to look sleek, elegant and sophisticated in one foul swoop. Now, add in a sexy front slit and some exposed shoulder action and you’ve got a winner!

LT IMG_8290

It’s a very rare thing to find me in all black everything. But, when all black looks like this, well then, how could I resist! The style of the dress is simple with enough visual interest to keep it interesting; but what I love about an outfit with such simple lines, is that I get to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. This dress provides the perfect foundation for that gorgeous necklace you’ve been dying to wear; those bold earrings you just haven’t found the right outfit for, but just had to buy; or those shoes that you know were super funky and not your usual, but you could just not leave them in the store!

LT IMG_8265 (1)

This dress feels great and is well made. The sizes seem to run just a tad big, but that is all good, because I can easily take this piece to the tailor so I have that “made to measure” feel.

LT IMG_8319

To accessorize my look, I wore bold earrings,  a silver cuff on each wrist, and some sexy gladiator heels that let everyone know that I came to slay!

Gail’s Look

This Les Poupounes suit has got me feeling like wheeling and dealing, brokering mergers and acquisitions like a stealth corporate raider!  Basically, this suit is what corporate dreams are made of.

The versatility of a great suit just can’t be beat.  It can go from the boardroom to Thursday happy hour (or as we Montrealers call it 5 a 7) easily.  Moreover, one can wear the jacket or the skirt with other things in one’s closet.  I just love when my clothing can do double duty!

GT IMG_9519 (1)

The suit features a peplum jacket with a hook and eye closure and satin lapels.  The fit on this jacket is out of this world fabulous.  Often times I have trouble finding jackets that fit correctly but this Les Poupoune gem is perfect.

I paired the jacket with this cross over hem skirt which is in a pencil style and perfectly accentuates my curves. The cross over style also allows for a little bit of leg to peak through – ooo la la.  The skirt also features a hook and eye closure as well as a hidden button.

GT IMG_8405

Both the jacket and the skirt are made of a double knit material that includes spandex so there is more give and ease of movement so I don’t feel as though I’m trapped in the suit.GT IMG_9431

I wore a salmon coloured sleeveless shirt underneath the jacket for a subtle pop of colour.  I slipped into some blush/nude coloured pumps and to jazz things up even further I added this leopard print clutch.

While browsing on Instagram I saw fellow Montreal blogger @Mllgeri wearing a black jumper which suited her very well. I immediately asked her where she got it and found out it was from a Montreal based company called Les Poupounes.

It’s always nice to discover a Canadian brand that understands that women of fuller shapes and sizes can be fashionable. What you will find in their collection is the basic, classic and timeless black and white pieces that you can mix for work and various events.

JS IMG_9022 (1)

I chose the classic black shorts jumper with a satin waistline.  As I mentioned earlier, I saw it on another blogger and knew it would look good on me. What I love about the jumper is that it’s made out of a stretchy spandex material, which gives you room to breathe so you don’t feel too snug in it.  Since this fabulous jumper is made out of a thicker material, I would most likely wear it during fall and winter with stockings and a nice pair of heels.

JS IMG_8873

For this look I went for classy and fab! To accentuate my waistline I wrapped a thin leather belt around my waist, and kept it simple by adding long gold earrings. To glamorize my look, I wore my lace-up black studded sandals and grabbed my sexy beaded clutch. Last but not least, this jumper comes in every size.  Isn’t it awesome when a retailer realizes that all woman want fashionable pieces, irrespective of size!

Nancy’s Look

We’ve said it once, twice, a thousand times. Finding designers that cater to all body types is cause for a celebration. Retailers and designers, please take notes! It can and is being done, and done beautifully at that.

ND IMG_8027

Les Poupounes de Luxe really personifies what Fab Four Fashion stands for. What I like most (other than the fact that they cater to us all) is that their pieces are classic, must have wardrobe staples. They are the blank canvas that will give you many different wears.

ND IMG_7726

The other obvious bonus is that you’re not limited to a “tall” or “curvy” section of their site. All items can be customized. As a lover of jumpsuits (I know that you all know about my love affair with jumpsuits), I automatically zeroed in on the Tuxedo Jumpsuit. Seeing the inseam of 32″ almost stopped me in my tracks. Since they make every piece, I figured that I would ask if a few additional inches could be added, and voila, I had this perfectly fitted jumpsuit.

ND IMG_8037

The satin at the lapel and trimming on the side pockets elevates this classic piece. The rayon, nylon and spandex combination ensure close fit without being clingy. This chic piece is a standout piece on its own, but I decided to add some gold accessories because black and gold are such a great combination. I added the belt to accentuate my waist, the bangles are my go to and the drop earrings are just too cool to pass on! Punctuate it all with studded pumps and just like that, I was ready to strut my stuff.
