In Stylzoo 

Every year I get really excited about fall fashion — the layering, the boots,  the rich, deep colours, and did I mention the layering? 

Navy blue will forever be one of my favourite fall shades. It offers all the benefits of wearing black (and no, I’m not talking “flattering,” I’m talking versatility), while actually bringing a little colour to the table. 

  
This navy wrap dress from Stylzoo is total perfection! It hugs my curves beautifully, and I’m seriously feeling the sexy V neckline! 

  
    
 I paired it with a this super chic, longline blazer from Penningtons…

   
And threw on my trusty, grey combat boots, to complete my look’s military-meets-90s-grunge inspired attitude.  

  
I decided to be bold and pick up on the tones in the lining of my boots, and accessorize with my emerald green Kate Spade Clutch, silver and pastel blue earrings, and my most daring lippie yet, a deep teal/green shade called Dr. M, from ColourPop Cosmetics! 

 

  
 I love how refreshing the mix of classic and edgier elements turned out to be! 
  
Armed with great pieces like my Stylzoo wrap dress, and adventurous lipstick shades like this one, I am definitely fall fashion ready!

Magnificent Maxi

Maxi Madness

I’d like to start this post with an apology for these particularly blurry pictures. My youngest son threw my iPhone into his potty and peed on it. Why? Because he is three years old and is trying to ruin my life. Ha. Don’t worry… I still love him.

In any event, I had promised a blog post to my Facebook fans, wearing this stunning Igigi maxi dress, so regardless of the fuzzy images – here it is!

All the dresses I’ve ever ordered from Igigi have been of excellent quality, and this one is no exception.  It’s fully lined and drapes absolutely perfectly on my body.  The fabric is light yet dense and the print is rich and indulgent.  I’ve paired it with a simple black canvas cork wedge from Wal Mart, a black Babooshka Boutique turban, wrapped around my bun, an oversized gold chain, gold teardrop hoop earrings, and gold cuff bracelet from Forever 21, to create an elegant, seductive look that works for any occasion, from tea with the ladies, an outdoor wedding, to cruise wear!

Just a note, from my experience, Igigi’s maxi dresses run true to size, perhaps slightly larger, and tend to be quite long, so be ready to have your hem raised if you’re anywhere under 5’11”, or plan to wear flats.
