I remember I went years avoiding turtlenecks.
One of the main reasons was because I couldn't stand having something around my neck that I can FEEL. It makes me feel like I am always close to chocking...NOT how I want to feel in my clothes. However, I found a thin lightweight turtleneck that does NOT sit against my neck last year. I have to say, other then my denim, it is my MOST worn piece this Winter.
Because it is great for layering! I can wear tees, dresses, cardigans and blazers over it. I chose black as it was going to give me the most wear in my wardrobe and I love the classic look paired with a fun pant. See, I have boobs (not big, but perfectly curvy) and I also have small hips, so I like to stay more neutral up top and let my legs be the focus with fun pants. My turtleneck was also a great way to stay WARM in our many cold months in Eastern Canada, as I could still wear it with my tees and not freeze when I put on a blazer.
Next on my list is to find the perfect...
This Fall I decided to live with less and decided to hold off buying any new clothes for the month of October. So, to kick this off, I did 10x10 Challenge and invited others to join me. That means I chose 10 items in my wardrobe and I wore them 10 different ways over 10 days.
WHY? (to find out what I learned, keep reading!)
THE BASIC GUIDELINES
Any core closet item you choose counts as a part of your 10 items. For example:
Keep in mind these are guidelines! If you don’t wear dresses, then...
I live in a small, but mighty city in Atlantic Canada. Its residents sometimes refer to it as Saint Awesome or YSJ, but on a map, it is called Saint John. It is located in the picturesque Province of New Brunswick and you will find it nestled by the Atlantic Ocean. I love Saint John for numerous reasons. One of those reasons is our amazing entrepreneurs and small businesses. We have those who were born and raised in Saint John and those who are CHOOSING our city to set up shop and follow their passion. As a Personal Stylist, I love to support my local boutique shops when I take my clients shopping and especially when I shop for myself.

I was driving in my car to a friend’s last night and an advertisement for a local fitness business came on. Instead of motivating me to use their business, it did the opposite of what I think it was intending to do. It ENRAGED me. Yes, I know, enrage is a strong word. But man, I was fired UP! Especially after my fb live talk with Carolyn Campbell about shifting to be more “Body Positive”. If you haven’t seen it, then I highly recommend it. You can find it here "Your weight is the least interesting thing about you" .
The advert on the radio wasn’t anything different than what we have heard before, but now I hear it with a new understanding and perspective.
And you know what? it is no longer okay. Not that it was ever okay to begin with...but it is no longer okay to believe or accept the BS women are being fed about how we should look and feel about our bodies. Shame based marketing to motivate you is NOT OKAY. Once your eyes have been opened to make...
