Make a Point

Pointy flats are so stylish and comfortable to wear! They are effortless yet chic, and look great with both dresses and pants!

Socks!

As I said in the previous post “socks are so in”! Aren’t they great when spring weather is still cold and you want to wear new sandals out? They sure will keep your feet comfy and warm, also add some chic details to complete the outfit! Socks with ruffle trims and the metallic ones are my favourite.

Show Attending 101

So I went to the Parkshow Calgary last Saturday at the NGA Golf Dome, I want to share with you some tips for attending these kind of fashion shows.

Ditch your Little Black Dress – this is a fashion show you are going, which means you can try something outside your own comfort zone, I don’t mean by wearing crazy things, but if you always wear dark colours, why not switch to something colourful or with fun colour design details. Little White Dress (LWD) is a great choice! It will make you look very fresh and stand out of the crowd! If you really have to wear black, try play with the texture a little bit – sheer, lace or patent will do the trick.

Dressy flats vs. Crazy high heels – if you are the kind of person who always walks around before and after the show, a pair of dressy flats are so effortless and chic. I prefer the pointy ones because they look great with both pants and dress, also elongate the legs. On the other hand, high heels are perfect to complete your head-to-toe dressed up look, but they might get painful at the end of the day, so here are some tips – you can put in a clear jell pad in the sole at your ball of the foot, this will help release some pain. Or you can try pairing a cute pair of socks with the heels (this is how I did on the day), there was zero pain on my feet from rubbing the heels and very stylish too!

Get yourself prepared – there will be photographers and bloggers taking pictures, so be prepared to have your pictures taken! If you are a blogger like me, remember to bring your business cards if you want to mingle and network with people, and a seperate flash for your camera (yes I forgot both…). Well I learned my lesson and there  will always a next time!

The last but not the least… ENJOY THE SHOW!

Coat Check

I have been thinking about writing the best coats since last December, and now some of these styles have been carried forward to the new year as well as the new season. So there are basically four different styles of the coats – the cocoon, the tailored, the menswear inspired and the pop art colourful ones. With these different shapes, of course there are ways to wear them and master the style. With the roomy and comfortable cocoon coats, it is important to play with the silhouette – off set the volume top with skinny pants or pencil skirt. A great pair of heels can elongate your legs and make you look leaner too. For a hip-length tailored coat, you can wear with a cute mini shift dress under to add some feminine touch to it. High heels are a must-have when wearing with the menswear inspired coat. With the bright colour jacket just keep the rest of the outfit simple, you are catching other people’s eyes already!

Hope you all find the perfect coat for the season! ❤
