Leslie’s Look

Want to make a statement at work? Show ‘em who’s really boss? Then this look is DEFINITELY for you. Fun, funky and still boardroom ready!

lt-img_2404

The “sexy secretary” cobalt blue tie neck blouse has a little funk to it with the voluminous sleeves but still caters to a corporate environment. The colour catches their attention, so you can hit ‘em with that innovative idea, that risky venture or even get them to buy in to a new way to do business.

lt-img_2501

The culottes are perfect for us tall girls. You never have to worry about hemming, they’re supposed to be short!lol This classic grey colour is brought to life with it’s wide leg style and when combined with this funky snake print belt and bold blouse is killa!  Who said conservative needed to be boring?

lt-img_2348

To complete my look, I added a pair of grey suede boots and a printed coat, because every boss needs a cool coat and now I’m ready to take on the lions in the boardroom den!

Judy’s Look

js-img_1823Going to Ziza Boutique is always a fun adventure, you never know what great gems you might find there. On our latest trip I found this red dress which I’m obsessed with.

The dress is the dress of all dresses lol, I never really dived too much into red coloured clothing, but thanks to Ziza Boutique I’m sold. I recently wore a stunning red jumper also from Ziza boutique, see previous post for details here.

js-img_1949

This fabulous red dress is called the Jade dress and its perfect for work, corporate events or other social functions.  You name it, and this is the dress. This dress is fitted  and knee length, with a belt which helps accentuate the smallest part of my body which is my waist.

js-img_1837

The best part of the dress is the sleeves. Yes honey the sleeves are puffy which takes this dress to the next level of slaying.

To conclude I wore my dress with my black studded pumps and to jazz up my style I wore my printed clutch from Papaya & Co.

Nancy’s Look

Ziza Boutique has done it again. The lady boss behind this boutique goes to the ends of the earth (literally!) to find unique pieces that will have you standing out without having to worry about a”who-wore-it-best” competition with others in attendance at your event.

nd-img_1755

This dress has the classic fit and flare silhouette that is sure to add curves right where you want them. The pleated bottom adds volume while being a nice twist. Also, the dress comes with the fantastic belt that further accentuates my waist.

nd-img_1664

And when you say “pointed flat collar”, I say, “find a beautiful necklace to accentuate it!”. So if you’re wired like me, you’ll be happy to know that gorgeous necklaces – like the one that I’m wearing – is also available at Ziza Boutique! Talk about a one stop shop.

nd-img_1771

I finished my look with these fuchsia pumps for a pop of color – you know me by now, yes? This dress is a great versatile dress which will get you from church to work in 2.5.

Gail’s Look

This mini dress from Ziza boutique is the cat’s meow.  This light weight dress is super comfy, features bell sleeves and is quite versatile which is as you all know a big plus for me. One could wear it with faux leather pants, over the knee boots or as I’ve done hear with these fishnet stockings from Berkshire!

gt-edited-img_2210

 

gt-edited-img_2248

I paired the dress with this houndstooth coat to break up all the black and keep things interesting.

gt-edited-img_2164

The icing on the cake of this look are these black block heeled shoes that are also from Ziza boutique.  The shoes feature a zip up closure at the back and lace up in the front.

Heating Things Up with Long Tall Sally

lt-edited-img_7447

lt-edited-img_7191

long tall sally truly created magic with their CURATD x LTS collection. I was more than ready to dive into so many of their pieces, but this boiler suit, along with the long sleeved sheer top gave me visions of sugar plums dancing in my head.

lt-edited-img_7308

Now, I love to rock my clothing pieces in unexpected ways when I can, and this outfit definitely went through the Leslie remix. Rather than rocking the boiler suit as a full jumpsuit, I decided to tie the sleeves at the waist and rock it with a top. Talk about adding more versatility to one garment.

lt-edited-img_7466

lt-edited-img_7447

This sheer top is the epitome of classy meets sexy! This top can be dressed up with a cute leather skirt or dressed more casually with, in my case, a hot boiler suit.

lt-edited-img_7432

lt-edited-img_7426

To complete this look, I wanted to add a little “bad-ass babe” to it, so I opted to add a khaki coloured bomber jacket, and some printed pumps. If you want to create a more casual look, you can totally exchange the pumps for some cute sneakers and you will look just as cute! I could have done 5 more posts on how to remix this boiler suit. It really is such a fantastic piece, and the best part is that it is actually long enough for my long limbs and it comes in a size 4 so it’s small enough for my slim frame! (I’m doing a little happy chair dance as I type:-)

lt-edited-img_7252

Thank you long tall sally!!!! This is definitely a good way to start off my holiday season!

Holiday Office Party Looks with Fab Four Fashion

grp-edited-img_7621

Tis the season of gingerbread, eggnog, men in red suits, and of course many, many parties. One of these holiday celebrations is that office holiday party. If you haven’t figured out what you plan to wear yet, never fear, the ladies of Fab Four Fashion are here! Check out the looks that they pulled together to set the office a-buzz!

grp-edited-img_7750

 

Judy’s Look

js-edited-img_8519

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!

js-edited-img_8909

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.

js-edited-img_8858

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.

js-edited-img_8535

Just like that I’ll be dancing the night away

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.

nd-edited-img_7801

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)!

nd-edited-img_7882

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!

nd-edited-img_8146

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!

gt-edited-img_9034

 

gt-edited-img_9078

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.

gt-edited-img_9061

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

lt-edited-img_8268

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!

An Azazie Fairytale

grp-img_1391

What more can we say about Azazie? Considering that we have teamed up with them for a second time attests to the fact that we are big fans. Azazie is your go to dress shop, from bridesmaids dresses to cocktail dresses, especially since each gorgeous gown comes in every size, and a wide array of colors to choose from. It’s simple as 1-2-3: 1. Fall in love with a dress 2. Enter your measurements (and that’s multiple measurement points to ensure perfect fit!) 3. Rock your gorgeous dress. It’ll never be too big, small, short or long!

grp-img_1313

But don’t take our word for it, judge for yourself! Take a peak at our pictures, but then again you would have to see the dresses in person to truly witness how beautifully crafted they are.

 

Nancy’s Look

nd-img_0187

Ethereal. Astonishing. Regal. These are some of the few words that people will use to describe you when they see you in your Azazie dress! Whatever your style, they have it. From floor length to short, conservative to skin-flaunting, there is something for everyone. If you’re like me, your biggest problem will be to choose just one!

nd-img_0167

Tall girls, attention please, attention please. With Azazie, your dresses will never, and I mean never, be too short. I always said that I would never complain that a dress is too long, and this one is veeeery long. I am wearing 4in sandals and there isn’t ever a toe in sight! Could this be the very first time in my life that I get anything hemmed???? Naaaaahhhhh LOL.

nd-img_0320

This dress is beautifully crafted and no detail is spared. The bodice is perfectly fitted all while taking into account your bust size (so much so that wearing a bra is totally optional – the girls will stay put and no fear of wardrobe malfunctions).

Only warning I have for anyone thinking of getting an Azazie dress: be prepared to dazzle everyone. All eyes WILL be on you so head high, shoulders back and sway them hips!

nd-img_0284Dress: Azazie // Necklace: Ziza Boutique // Bracelet: Ziza Boutique // Shoes (tho invisible LOL): long tall sally (old); similar here

Gail’s Look

I really love Azazie for the fact that no matter your size, height or body shape, you can find a beautiful dress in a size you!

gt-img_0448

This sequin number is making all kinds of noise.  I love sequins so there was no doubt that I had to have this gorgeous dress plus this dress is completely customizable.

gt-img_0516

Simply enter in your measurements, Azazie walks you through this process, and boom your dress is in your hands in a matter of weeks.

gt-img_0562

The fit of the dress is spot on.  The sweetheart neckline is very flattering and the length is perfect as the dress puddles beautifully on the ground.  The dress also comes with built in boning so you really feel held in.

gt-img_0473

To stylify my look (yes, I know stylify is not a word LOL), I added this black faux fur stole, large silver dangly earrings, and silver pumps.  Just like that, I’m looking like the blak Mae West! LOL

Dress: Azazie // Faux fur stole: eBay //Pumps: Zara (old) similar here // Earrings: H&M

Leslie’s Look

lt-img_1130

Red carpet ready; that is how I would have to describe this gorgeous gown. Azazie has done it again, creating a beautiful made-to-measure gown that fits my every curve to a T. No need for that trip to the tailor when it comes to an Azazie garment. So long as you know how to use a tape measure, you’re good as gold!

lt-img_1003

I selected this particular piece as I love the silhouette it gives me, highlighting my curves and how it exposes my shoulders. I also love this eye-catching shade of yellow which sets you apart from the crowd. Some people tend to leave those vibrant colours behind with the onset of winter. In my opinion we need them more now than ever to counteract those grey days!

lt-img_1294

My accessories were oh so simple for this look. Big sparkly earrings, a blinged out bracelet  and a couple of bold bobbles for my fingers and I was ready to walk the red carpet at any formal event!

lt-img_1112

 

Dress: Azazie (made to measure to fit any size, height and shape. I LOVE that)

 

Judy’s Look

js-img_0726

Lately I have been in the mood for the color yellow. From bright lemon to the color of sunshine I’m here for it. This time around I chose a dress in a marigold color.

js-img_0694

This color compliments my skin tone so well that I feel like a ray of sunshine. I chose this dress named the Fatima Bridesmaid which is a sweetheart neckline, A-line cut dress with straps that come close together, and is attached with a button at the back. This dress is floor length and even in heels you cannot see my feet, which elongates my silhouette.

js-img_0899

This dress fits my body very well. I love the fact that there is boning around the boob area, which gives me real support even with my strapless bra. The chiffon material flows beautifully and makes me feel like I’m floating when I walk. I am extremely satisfied with this dress. I can’t wait to wear this gown for a wedding or an elegant gala.

To complete my look, I kept it simple with long gold earrings and a gold bracelet.

With that said, Cinderella ain’t got nothing on me!

I fell in love with this faux fur vest on sight.  It’s a 3/4 length beauty with pockets and a faux leather belt perfect for cinching in my waist or leaving it tied in the back as I did.

This vest would also make for a great layering piece over a jacket or coat!  I love my when clothing options come with built in versatility!

Don’t be fooled by the furs that I got…I’m still I’m still Leslie from the block!! LOL Don’t be fooled into thinking that Wilson’s Leather only does leather goods. They are about that fur/faux fur life as well! This GORGEOUS ecru coloured poncho  called to me from cyber space  and I immediately knew that I had a winner!

lt-edited-img_3254

This look called to my inner Diana Ross! I love the winter white as  it just oozes luxury and wearing the poncho as a top, exposing one shoulder, adds a little sexiness to the overall look.

lt-edited-img_3286

I love mixing textures, so paring my poncho with a faux leather, midi pencil skirt seemed perfectly apropos.

To accessorize my look, I just had to add in some gold accents. These dangly tassel earings and my “Wonder Woman cuff of power” took this look to the next level! Of course it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t add a little print which came in the form of these hot leopard print pumps.

So watch out Diana, I’m coming to turn you “up-side-down”! (just kidding, I LOVE Diana Ross!!!)

Last year I had a blast working with Wilson’s Leather, as I loved the biker leather jacket I got from them. This year we had the chance to work with them again, but this time around I opted for a more fitted leather coat.

js-edited-img_2127

What I love about this coat is that it fits me very well. There are 2 scuba insert panels on each side that make it more fitted to my body, and most importantly it doesn’t feel snug when I zip it all the way up.

js-edited-img_1982

This coat is perfect for the beginning of fall or early spring, and it’s a great addition to my wardrobe. The coat is very thin and soft so you don’t feel bulky in it.

For this look I went with a vibrant printed chevron dress, with a classic pair of mustard pumps and my Wilson’s Leather coat.

js-edited-img_2087

Just like that I’m ready to slay!

nd-edited-img_3536

While Wilson Leather doesn’t yet provide tall options (notice how I said ‘yet’? hint hint LOL), they do provide some very fashionable offerings. With that said, I – lady with the long limbs – chose this jacket for very specific reasons. Other than this jacket being simply gorgeous, I chose it because the sleeves did not have a zipper on the sleeve. Therefore, I was able to have my tailor let the hem down as much as possible such that the sleeve length work!

nd-edited-img_3041The other option I have is to extend the length on the sleeves. If you go digging in the crates, you will find a post here where I transformed an old dress into a brand new one by adding a leather band. I will repeat this by visiting my friends at Perfect Leather Goods to find the perfect fitting piece of leather to make the sleeves as long as I want to.

nd-edited-img_3000The color is rich, the basket weave pattern is cool, the wide collar, the slim fit need I say more?

I completed my look with some printed pants, a white asymmetric tube top and some orange pumps for a pop of color. This outfit will have me looking fly at my next brunch with the ladies!

Fall for Eshakti Part 2

grp-edited-img_2833

The ladies of Fab Four Fashion are back with part 2 of their ode to eShakti!

grp-edited-img_2825

 

Leslie’s Look

eShakti did  it again!  This bronze coloured tule skirt made my heart go pitter-pat when I saw it.  I immediately began having visions of myself as a bronze goddess dressed top to toe in shades of bronze and a lot of bling!

lt-img_2302

The starting point for this look was this beautiful skirt.  eShakti offers many options when customizing their pieces and I knew I wanted this skirt to hit me just above my ankle for a dramatic effect. But for this skirt, there was no option to make it ankle. Never fear, as usual I had a “Little Leslie Hack” to get around that! When customizing my order, I simply entered my height as 6ft 4in and voila, I had a skirt that hit me just above my ankle.

lt-img_2400

I wanted to rock a tone on tone on tone look, so I decided to add some sparkle with this gorgeous sequin relaxed fit blazer that I belted at the waist and a shiny bronze bodysuit.

lt-img_2305

Since I wanted glam from top to toe, I just had to make sure my feet weren’t forgotten in the mix! I opted to wear these super cute high heeled sandals with multi-coloured pom-poms that are just so fun and flirty (I finally truly understand what that means! lol)

And with that, I was ready for a special evening out on the town or an early holiday party!

For my second eShakti look, I was inspired by curvy actress Christina Hendricks on Mad Men. I saw this dress on eShakti.com and I had to have it. This dress embody secretary femme fatale ready to take over the office LOL and I love it.

js-img_2151

This black and cream plaid dress is formed fitted, ¾ sleeves and knee length and I chose to get it customized and it came out perfectly. Even though there is not much stretch in the material, I don’t feel too snug in the hip area.

js-img_2176

This dress is great for work and boardroom meetings as well as after work happy hour drinks with the girls. All you have to do is accessorise the way you want and it’s a great starting point for a killer outfit.

To complete my Madmen look I paired this dress with my camel coat and wine coloured pumps and clutch.

eShakti has me fall ready with this great window pane fit and flare dress. The classic print is what first caught my eye. Although I could have changed the neckline, sleeve type and length, I loved the way that it was shown with the round neck, short sleeves and knee length.

nd-img_2738

nd-img_2491

What I like most about this dress is that it’s a great transitional piece, and it works great for my 9-5. Here I’ve paired it with stockings, booties and a moto jacket, but it would work just as well with a white shirt underneath and some sexy pumps.

nd-img_2781

Plus size babes, eShakti has you covered as you can enter your measurements on the eShakti website and obtain a made to measure dress. You can also pair your dress with this jacket.

Gail’s Look

With this eShakti dress, called Alexandra, I was going for some vintage glamour.  I really like the mix of the two textures that make up the dress.  The fitted bodice is a cotton/spandex jersey knit while the skirt consists of two layers of sheer tulle plus a black lining for extra coverage.

gt-edited-img_2509

 

gt-edited-img_2627

The original style of the dress had a split notch neckline but I chose to switch things up a bit by going for a deep v.  In fact, with this particular dress there are 16 additional necklines, 7 sleeve types and 6 different skirt lengths to choose from so the possibilities are endless!

gt-edited-img_2617

So, to up the glamour quotient further, I added this gray wrap style coat with a blinged out broach.  I completed my look by adding sparkly yet delicate earrings and silver pumps.

When it comes to fashion for all and every fit, Eshakti is here, and I couldn’t be happier to collaborate again with them. This time around I chose this simple mustard fit and flare, knee length dress.

I chose to get my dress customized so I can get the waist adjusted to my body, and to get the fit and flare look I was going for.

I don’t know how many times I can stress the fact that I tend to gravitate towards pieces of clothing that I can wear in so many different ways. This dress is so versatile I can wear it in the winter with a pair of over the knee boots, and can wear it in spring and summer with sandals.

Last but not least, for this look I paired my dress with my printed blue and beige coat that I scored at Old Navy, on sale a few months ago. I added a fur collar just because everything looks better with fur, and I added my leopard print stilettos.

As I mentioned before this dress is available in ALL sizes so tall babes it can be yours too.  Here is a coat option in tall for you though which just so happens to be from eShakti as well – Coat

Fashion democracy at its best indeed. When you see how seamlessly eShakti seems to navigate the fashion-for-all world, I really have to wonder if most retailers will eventually follow suit. I for one sure hope so!

In order to ensure perfect fit, I entered my measurements and once again, my dress fit me to a tee. The real bonus Tall Chicas is that, if the picture shows the dress being knee length, and you want it to be knee length, then it will BE knee length. What a novel idea lol.

The dress comes with a belt that matches its beautiful geometric print, but I swapped it for a belt that was in my closet (the grays ended up going quite well!) just to have that contrast to further accentuate my waist. To keep the chills at bay, I added this camel colored maxi jacket which takes the look from nice to boss in 2.5!

The neckline, sleeve and length of the dress can all be modified. How will you rock it?

Plus size girls, you can get that very same dress in your very own size! If you want to pair it with a jacket as I did, check out the one worn by our very own Gail here.

Gail’s Look

This look is my ode to military chic.  When I spied this gorgeous army green dress on the eShakti site – it was love at first sight!  The first thing that popped into my head was that En Vogue remake of “He’s the boogie woogie hip hop boy of Company B!” LOL  Man, I was ready to fox trot!

gt-edited-img_0789

The dress is made of a comfy breathable cotton material that has a hint of stretch.  I love the faux knot detail at the neck too.  Once again, eShakti has those wonderful pockets in this dress design that I just love.

Next came this camel coloured coat, in petite plus, with gold button -again giving off that military air!

I completed my look with patterned pumps and gold embossed purse – now that’s a  salute to style…see what I did just there lol

Leslie’s Look

lt-edited-img_0897

When perusing through the pages of Elle Canada magazine I stumbled across an article featuring some of the hot trends seen on the runway for fall. One of those hot trends lit a fire in my blood and I was determined to recreate it with my own little twist. The trend  was wearing pink and  yellow together.

lt-edited-img_1076

This gorgeous dress from eShakti, which of course me being me, I turned into a skirt is dupioni silk with a high low detail and beautiful front pleat. I’ve been noticing a lot  of pink creeping into my wardrobe of late, but when it comes in the form of a beautiful dress like this, who can resist. Image

What I love about this dress is that I could so easily where it to a wedding or special event, then to expand the “usefulness” of this piece for us ladies on a budget, you can style it with a top or jacket to wear it dinner, brunch or for drinks with the crew.

lt-edited-img_1040

I rocked it with this ¾ sleeve shirt in a vibrant yellow and decided to accentuate my waist with a wide brown belt. Since I love adding a little print whenever I can, I threw on my leopard print pumps, and for a little extra dash of colour (because I was feeling like being bold) I rocked this wine-red clutch to hold my bits and bobs.

And just like that, I transformed this dress from “occasion” wear to everyday gear!

That Night Magic

lt-edited-img_4470

lt-edited-img_4340

There has always been something about nighttime that felt magical to me ever since I was a kid. That may be the cause of too many bedtime stores (which were so awesome) in which toys came to life once children were asleep and that bump in the night was something other than Dad hitting his knee on the way to the bathroom! LOL But however I look at it, there is something to be said for that zing of excitement and spine tingling thrill that the night can bring!

lt-edited-img_4470

First let me tell you all, this is NOT a sponsored post. H&M has not yet decided that this girl (i.e. moi) needs to be representing their brand, and quite frankly, they don’t even know I exist! LOL But I have to big them up for their last Studio collection.

lt-edited-img_4432

I accidently on purpose wandered into the store on Bloor street here in the 6ix only to discover that it was the pre-launch viewing of the, then new, Studio collection. The store was open to all, however The Kit magazine was specially invited to this event. So no, I don’t work for The Kit mag, but you would never have known! I was in there trying on stuff like I was specially invited too! LOL

lt-edited-img_5274

My loot consisted of these GORGEOUS red wide leg trousers that are so spectacular that I want to wear them everywhere; and this stunning double breasted, wide collar black coat.

So, the truth about these pants ladies is that they are short. I stand at 5ft 9in and I had to let out the entire hem and I still had to rummage through my wardrobe to find short enough heels to rock this look with. I could have easily worn flats. H&M, PLEASE lengthen those pant hemlines!

Slim ladies out there, I actually went down a size in these pants, primarily because they did not have my size in the store, but the smaller size fit perfectly.

lt-edited-img_5211-1

I always have a bit of a love hate relationship with black and red. Black because I feel like the colour drags me down. Yes, it’s elegant, and yes I wear it, but I speckle it through my wardrobe rather than making it a mainstay. Red, there are so many shades that finding the right one for me  can be challenging. But this shade jumped out at me and I just knew it was the perfect one.

lt-edited-img_5288

Since I was already shopping in H&M, I figured, I might as well complete the look there. I scooped up this cute cropped red ribbed sweater and called it a night!

lt-edited-img_4289

To accessorize this look, I added bold silver earrings, a large ring and this multi-coloured purse I just happened to find in my sister’s closet (Thanks Gail).

lt-edited-img_5316

And with that, I’m off to see what the night will bring!
