It’s been a while since I last posted, and I wanted to share why. First of all I just finished my undergrad at York University, so I was busy with exams, and I was helping my brother out with his new marketing agency called Prepster Media. I’m so excited to be done school, and to get back into blogging and hopefully finding a job in my field. I also will be putting out more content now that I have more free time, and I cant wait for you to see whats coming up.
Now back to regular programming
This lovely outfit was gifted to me by Addition Elle, which is a leading plus size retailer in Canada. I have been a fan of their clothing and their mission of making style accessible to all sizes. This coat (size 2X) is one of the best pieces I have added to my closet in a long time. The oversized wool blend coat has a slightly warmer pink tinge to it and it looks great with a pair of jeans. The coat comes in three colours is a timeless piece that will be a staple piece for years to come.
We need to talk about these jeans, and how amazing of a fit they are. The material blend feels incredible on, and they fit like a glove because of the stretch in them, I bought these in a size 18. This denim features a high-rise waist for a flattering midsection, and has a slim leg. There is also a little bit of distressing on the bottom which gives theses jeans a trendy flare.
I have a slightly pinched nerve in my left toe, so I have been investing in some flats recently. I came across these pointed-toe ones from Joe Fresh and bought them in both the black and white. The shoes give the illusion of a heel when you’re standing head on, but the slingback detail on the side is also really cute.
These accessories are also from Addition Elle. I bought the earrings recently (they have sold out since), but have had the bracelet for a few years now. My tip for keeping jewellery made of non-precious metals looking new for a long time is coating it in a small amount of top coat. It stops the transference of the top layer to your skin, and keeps your jewellery shiny.
