I met Ghazal, the founder and Editor In Chief of one1one magazine at Eco Fashion week this past spring. We hit it off and once I told her I was a personal fashion stylist with my own business she said decided to do a feature on me. The photoshoot was at my home at the end of the summer before she jetted off on an inter-national tour of the spring 2014 fashion weeks. I’m excited to share the article in their holiday issue below.
After too many summers of my flat sandals falling well, flat, I decided to give my feet a break and some cushion and pick up a couple pairs that offer a little something more to walk on.
Franco Sarto Gia. I found my pair for sale at the Bay downtown. Also available online at Sears.
Naturalizer Archer. This pair has the N5 Comfort foot bed.
Nothing gives a lady confidence quite like the right underpinnings. A cami can do wonders to smooth things out (tucked in or not) and provide modest coverage with a sheer top. Nude ones are great under just about anything and if it’s going to poke out at the top or bottom a white, black, or colour to go with the outfit is often a good choice.
The good news is that they’re pretty readily available. The most versatile ones are seamless and made with Lycra and Spandex. Here are a few of my favourite places in Canada to find them at a few different price points:
Jacob. The seamless cami. Has a slight v-neck. Priced at $29.90 each.
Mexx. They make them in seasonal colours to coordinate with their tops. Regular price is $19.90 each. These have adjustable straps like a bra so you can bring the neckline higher or lower depending on your needs.
RW&Co. They come in a bunch of colours and styles. I’d steer clear of the ones with lace at the top (a bit too ’90′s). Regular priced at $22.50 each or 2 for $35.
Ricki’s. They have ones with spaghetti straps and ones with thick straps and come in the classic colours: nude, black and white and some other colours as well. They sell for $18.50 each or 2 for $28. The Lycra on these ones feels super soft and smooth.
Walmart. George line. $6 each, ’nuff said (make sure you pick the Lycra ones not the cotton ones for colour and durability – couldn’t find them online. Try in-store).
