Christmas Party outfits

I was running out of time to write my Christmas Party Outfit post

So without further adieu…

What I’ve seen this Christmas for parties!


Karen Sequin Dress

Karen Sequin Dress

The Sequin was everywhere this Christmas.

The sparkle of new years has come early and has sprouted in December.

This fit of dress has been very popular for Christmas Parties as well. It is a very cheeky type of dress that is perfect for the big night out on the town, or that girl’s night downtown. You don’t want to be lost in the crowd, and this dress will ensure that you won’t be!

If this dress is a little to formal or extravagant for your party plans. A very cute idea is:



I adore this outfit from @shikshin on Instagram

So happy she used my hashtag #dailygrindlook !

This outfit is a perfect holiday look for those Christmas get-togethers with family and friends. Completely cute and festive!

Red, White, and …Metallic?

Most people will play it safe and wear black for those holiday parties. Even I did for one of my parties…but I figured the amazing cut would make up for it.

But be bold ladies in these colours that you cannot go wrong with!

4. This is the time to bring out that Red dress you never have anywhere to wear. Smile and shine ladies cause your wearing your flirty dress!

6. Black and white with lace is such a classy look for a Christmas Party when you want to portray a successful sexy woman.

7. Lastly metallic is perfect for the young and playful. The party will revolve around you in this “shiny disco ball” dress.

What I wore


I went metallic for my Christmas Dress.

It is a French Connection fitted long sleeve dress; classy enough for a Christmas Staff Party. But it also fun with the metallic shimmer. I paired it with a low hanging metallic necklace to accentuate the shimmer of the dress.

What did you wear for your Holiday Party?!

Winter Fashion Shopping Haul

“Fashion is not about Utility”

As I was watching ‘the devil wears prada’ the other day…the idea for this post came to me. Fashion may not be about utility. But style?….STYLE is neither ornament or utility. It is finding the balance between the two to express your individuality that equals STYLE.


My last shopping haul was based around this premise.

I picked all three of the following items because they are fab pieces for one …but my man was happy to buy them for me because they also filled a functionality purpose.

Balance between ornament and utility much? I think so!

Item 1

This is the neatest idea ever: Scarf and Hood in one!

Add a hood to anything, whether it is a jacket, sweater, dress…and you can count me in. So of course I need this scarf/hood. The faux fur is so lovely and soft as well; it feels amazing wrapped around you.

I got this item and the next hat from Big It up

They had a buy one and get a second half off. yay!

Item 2

[ From: Big it up ]

I wouldn’t be a true Canadian without this faux fur fargo hat.

Traditionally a men’s style hat… I thought the manly “ugliness” of this hat paired with a cute outfit offers an interesting and pleasing look for a woman.

Such as this sweater dress outfit below.


Item 3

[ Target ]

My last item, these boots from Target are my favourite.

I have worn them every day since I bought them… That being said they are extremely comfortable, and have a hard inner linear that prevents snow from sweeping into your socks. So I can easily trudge through snow if need be the case. I wear heels everyday, so heels in snow is no biggie for me despite what my coworkers think. haha!

But their functionality did not catch my eye when I first spotted these bad boys. It was their use of buckles or should I say ‘over-use’ of buckles beyond functionality that drew me in. -Essentially their ornamental-ness that said to me: “You need to buy these.”

Luckily because I need a pair of shoes that work for both winter and work. My man was happy to indulge my need to shop.

Utility and Fashion all wrapped up in three cute items.
