I have so many wonderful changes happening in my life right now.  Not only am I due to have a baby in just a few short weeks, I have another new baby too.  I am delighted to have teamed up with the very talented Alicia Quan (a.k.a. Alicia Fashionista) with our creative agency Capital Q Creative.  After loads of work and time, we officially launched our site last week.  Please be sure to pop by and check it out.  We are happy to help you with any of your social media needs.

I am really loving all the blue this season.  There are so many shades to choose from so I’ve been wearing blue with, well, more blue.  In this month’s issue of Framework Magazine , myself and the rest of The Style Common crew are modeling some very pretty date looks.  I loved my outfit so much I bought it!  (Granted, I was the stylist for this shoot too, so it was inevitable that this would happen.)  Be sure to get caught up on this month’s issue.  The March Issue will be out soon.

 

Me and my fellow Style Common chicks have put together a fun photo-shoot with date night inspiration in mind.

Whether it’s a date night with my husband or a night out with my girlfriends, I like to keep a feminine quality to my outfit without being too girly.  At least girly in a cutesy way.  I like to play up my curves and emphasize all my best bits.  For my date night look I chose this soft and flowy multi-coloured skirt and paired it with a tee instead of a blouse to keep my outfit more playful.  The black leather belt emphasizes my smaller waist and helps me show off an hourglass silhouette.  Since I already have a lot going on with pattern on pattern, I opted to keep my jewelry simple with a pair of sparkly studs and chunky chain necklace.  My bold sexy lip colour is a must for a perfect pout while my high heeled ankle boots give my gams some extra length.
My 5 Style Tips for Curvy Gals:
1) Don’t be afraid of colour. Curvy girls often retreat to slimming black. Colour can flatter your shape too, just make sure you have a good fit.
2) Emphasize your teeny bits. Whether it’s your waist, wrists, arms, or legs, show em off!
3) Add a belt to define your shape. Belts are amazing! I throw one on with most of my outfits. It not only defines my waist (one of my small bits), it also finishes my look.
4) Whether you’re wearing a pair of jeans or a cute dress, add some heels to your outfit. They will instantly make you feel sexy.
5) Be sure to wear a fuss free outfit. There is nothing worse than an outfit you’re constantly tugging and pulling at. Make sure it fits you well and you feel amazing in it. When you’re getting ready try walking around your house in the outfit as well as sit and bend in it. If you can’t move well in it, it’s not the outfit for you. Confidence is the best accessory you got, so work it!

We ladies of The Style Common paired up with Joe Fresh to show you not only how one top can be styled on many different body types but also how sequins can be worn any day…not just NYE.

It can sound horrible to compare your body shape to a piece of fruit, however pear shape is the best way to describe my figure.  Over the years I’ve learned to highlight the positives and camouflage the less desirable  areas of my body.  I’ve been blessed with a small waist, so belts are added to many of my looks.  This black leather belt is a pretty contrast against the rose gold sequins.   With a fuller hip, bum, and thigh I tend to wear darker colours on the bottom and often layer with a jacket or cardi to help balance out my proportions.   A killer pair of heels help elongate my shorter legs and gives the illusion of length.   I liked the low neckline on this top.  My collar bones are a feature I like to show off so I just added a simple layered necklace to help fill in the space and add some interest.  Sparkle with sparkle is completely appropriate for a date night out…especially on New Years Eve.  This sequin stunner clutch adds another element of glam without being over the top.

A quick style fix between pics.
