The Corporate Edit from The Iconic

Image
I work in an office so I am always shopping for appropriate but easy to wear outfits that represent me and what my style is. Your outfit is the first thing that speaks before you do when you meet someone.  So that makes it especially important to have a carefully curated wardrobe for work.  That is, if you don't have a uniform to go to.  For this post, I've only included dresses, coats and jackets as this is my personal favourite choice but of course, skirts and pants are fantastic go to's if that's what suits your personal style.

Dresses 
These are some of my favourite easy to wear dresses for this season all from The Iconic and under $100!!  It's an easy one stop shop with express delivery so you can have your looks in just a few hours or the very next day.  I personally love dresses because they require less fuss and are super efficient when racing against the clock in the morning. The dresses are easily layered with a coat or jacket and stockings making it temp…

A day to celebrate love

Image
I know "Valentines Day" can mean different things to different people. Some see it as a commercialized costly day, others may see it as a day to feel loved through roses and presents.
Valentines day is celebrated on February 14th every year and usually involves the exchange of cards, gifts, chocolate or flowers with a special person.
The origins of course are long forgotten but began in the 5th century.  Today people attach certain meaning to the day.

On social media I saw many young women lamenting about being a forgotten valentine or professing their love for themselves. Valentines day has grown to become a day where young women in particular place huge emphasis on the presence of a romantic relationship.  I remember moments during high school where it was so competitive to showcase what and how much you received for Valentines day.  My worth was very much dictated by the relationships I was in.

When I had daughters, I vowed that I would do what was in my power to instil…

Unique watch Giveaway

Watches have become such a staple in both the male and female capsule wardrobe. Some have one piece that they wear incessantly whereas others alternate between a few.  Either way, everyone needs a staple watch.

With so many brands competing for their share in the market, it can be hard to decide on which one to choose.  So this is where I want to introduce this innovative concept to you. Wooden watches. Say what?  Yep you heard me.  Not the mainstream bands and materials used but something incredibly unique that I'm sure your fashionista circles have not got their hands on yet.

These materials are sourced for their sustainability and durability.  The goal of the designers at JORD is for the wearer to make each moment count, by being aware of not only the time that has passed but to be mindful of the moments they have in life.  What a beautiful concept!

JORD watches are also incredibly resistant to breakage with their Sapphire Glass. This material is second o…

The perfect bed linen

Image
In any bedroom, the focal point is always the bed.  We spend a significant amount of our lives sleeping, therefore we should always endeavor to have the right linen for our needs. 
Scheme A simple, carefully considered bed linen scheme is essential and sufficient in presenting even the most minimal bedroom with an inviting atmosphere.  A beautifully styled bed is such a delight to jump into and have a great night's sleep.  It is your personal space where you have the right to unwind and relax however you please. So quality bedlinen is a must here.  A great way to keep it cost effective way to update the look for your bedroom is with new colours and seasonal textures, as opposed to ridiculous layers of cushions which are often thrown on the floor at bedtime.  As we are drawing into summer, start looking at light greys and blues as they can be supplemented with bright pops of colour when adding one or two accent cushions.  If you are in cooler months, think of deep greys and indigos as y…

Trend: Minimalistic jewelery

Jewelery can always be categorised as either statement or delicate.   Statement jewelery was created to stand out on their own essentially making an entire outfit. Whereas delicate jewelery was created to add effortless beauty to any outfit.  Effortless! Like you aren't even trying! Yet you may have totally planned that look the night before but everyone will assume it just happened ;).

This is where we can definitely see that bigger isn't always better.  Lately, fashionista's and celebrities have been favoring a more subdued look.  Delicate jewelery is easier to wear as you can add it to any look.  You will look completely put together by adding delicate pieces to your look.  They are also way more comfortable as you won't have to worry about sagging ear lobes or aching necks caused by larger pieces. I love the lariat necklaces and their ability to be worn in gradual layers. 

I love the range at Brass Paper Smith. They have essential minimalist items that can b…
