Fun Fashion Fact

Did you know that the design of the iconic Cartier Tank watch was inspired by actual images of tanks during World War I: “From the wearer’s viewpoint, looking down at the watch on the wrist, the case resembles a tank’s cockpit while the brancards, the vertical bars that run along each side of the case, recall a tank’s treads.”

Employment Tips: Resource Roundup for New Grads

If you’re a recent graduate, you are probably looking to put your new skills into practice by finding a job in your field. Regardless of what stage you are at in your job search, the blog posts we’ve gathered provide useful information so that you can be ready for your next big opportunity.

Finding a Job

How to Organize Your Job Search

When you’re applying for many different jobs over a short period of time, it can be difficult to keep track of where you applied and even which version of your resume and cover letter you used to apply for each job. This post provides tips for organizing your job search, like:

  • Creating a filing system for your different resumes and cover letters by making separate folders for each job application and using standard naming conventions (that you come up with) for all your job search documents.
  • Using a spreadsheet to track your job applications that has various columns like the name of the company you applied to, the date you applied, and the resume and cover letter versions you used.

Applying for Jobs Online: Common Problems and Solutions

Walking into a business and asking for a job is basically a thing of the past. Instead, companies generally prefer prospective job searchers submit an online application. While the internet is certainly a more convenient way to apply for jobs over hitting the pavement, it’s not without its flaws. This post offers solutions to common problems experienced during the online job hunt.

6 Common Cover Letter Mistakes

Since an employer can receive hundreds of applications, they often narrow down candidates by looking at each applicant’s Cover Letter.

Having a Cover Letter that stands out and accurately conveys your skills and abilities is essential for you to get an edge over other applicants. Some Cover Letter tips that this post includes are:

  1. Ensuring there are no typos, spelling errors, or grammatical errors in your letter
  2. Trying not to focus too much on yourself, and focusing on how your qualifications and skills can solve the company’s problems instead
  3. Trying not to discuss too much — or too little — of your previous work history
  4. Avoiding clichés
  5. Trying not to make your Cover Letter sound like fan mail — highlight your skills and how they apply to the company rather than sounding like the company’s “super fan”

4 Ways to Ask for a Job Reference

If you make it to the interview process, chances are high that the employer will ask you for professional references from people who can attest to your work ethic and character.

This post offers information and tips on different ways that you can approach colleagues and superiors to ask for job references.

The Job Offer and the Employment Contract

4 Things to Consider Before Signing an Employment Contract: Part 1

Once you’re offered a job, it can be tempting to fill out the paperwork you receive as quickly as possible, since you’ve probably already discussed things like job title and salary with your new employer.

Before you sign the dotted line on your Employment Contract, it’s important to make sure that all the agreed upon terms (like job title, salary, responsibilities, overtime, and benefits) are clearly outlined and match what you and your future employer talked about in the original offer.

4 Things to Consider Before Signing an Employment Contract: Part 2

In Part 2 of our post, we did more research and compiled a list of four more things you should consider before signing an Employment Contract.

For instance, some jobs require you to travel, whether it be locally, nationally, or internationally, so your Employment Contract should specify what your travel compensation will be for things like meals, gas, travel time, accommodations, etc.

Resigning from a Job

Resignation Letter Etiquette

As a former student, it’s likely that you have a job that helped you raise extra money to cover expenses and living costs during your time at school. Now that you’ve graduated, your current job might not be in your field of study and you probably want something that will use your education, or maybe you just want a different opportunity in general.

Even if you are planning on never returning to a company or you don’t particularly like your current job, it’s important to resign as amicably as possible so you don’t squander any future opportunities. This post has tips for resigning on good terms, including what to include and what not to include in your Resignation Letter.

5 Ways to Quit Your Job on Good Terms

Even if you are leaving a job that you are planning to never return to, or you have negative feelings towards the people or the place, it’s always best to quit on good terms. Writing a good Resignation Letter is important, but this post also goes through some other things that you can do to leave a good impression with your former employer:

  1. Give notice to your employer. Giving some notice that you are leaving (usually two weeks, although the amount of time can vary depending on how long you’ve been employed at your job) will help your employer plan for when you’re gone.
  2. Offer to tie up any loose ends. It’s recommended that you make yourself available to finish up any projects that you’ve already started and hand off any remaining tasks to your coworkers.
  3. Help with the hiring process. You can help your employer by offering to write the job posting for your position or go through applications to help create a list of candidates that you feel would make good replacements.
  4. Help with the training process. If you’re employer finds a replacement for you, you can offer to help train the new person so they are ready to go in their new position when you leave.
  5. Be present during your notice period. Since you’ve given your notice already, it’s easy to “check out” and not do your job to the best of your ability, since you’re leaving anyway. However, you should continue to give your best effort to avoid early termination or a bad reference.

Finding Meaningful Employment

Finding a job right after graduation might be daunting, but by following the information in these posts, you can help prepare yourself in the best way possible to maximize your current and future opportunities.

Fashion News Roundup: June 2018

A Nordstrom arts partnership, a Pierre Cardin documentary and other style news that caught our attention this month.

Fun Fashion Quote

I really like what Stella Blackmon’s says in her Week of Outfits feature on Cup of Jo about wearing clothes that work for your lifestyle and for who you are as an individual:

“You know how people say that kids always remember the times they threw up? I remember every outfit in my life that drove me nuts. Like my blue Mary Janes I had in fourth grade that pinched my heels unless I walked on my toes, or the cargo pants with five rogue zippers. Or the homecoming dress I had to casually hold up the entire night with one hand. What was I thinking? The clothes that let you do you are where it’s at. Now I know.”

Weekly Roundup: Summer Shoes and Dresses

This week’s list of top picks is short and sweet. Pickings are usually slim at the end of the season, but this year has been exceptional. There is lots of good stuff to purchase if you’re in shopping mode and your Summers are long. 

This week highlights a footwear brand called Earth that generally makes very comfortable footwear for regular and higher volume feet. Their styles are often too wide for me, but I keep on trying. Sometimes I order half a size down when the toe box looks long enough hoping that they create a better fit. One day, one of their styles will fit because all good things come to those who wait. Fabulous dresses are still going strong because it’s the best dress season ever. Browse all the colour options and read the rave reviews.

  • Earth Masio Loafer: A comfy loafer with a sporty and casual integrity. Comes in six lovely colours. These might stay on feet with narrow heels. Solid and polished.
  • Earth Juno: A sandal for narrower heels and wider toes. Quite good arch support and with a manageable heel height. Our forum members rave about them.
  • Vince Camuto One Shoulder Ruched Top: Alluring yet reasonably covered. Needs a strapless bra, and might run a size big unless you’re broad-shouldered. Long in the torso so not for petites. Form-fitting yet the ruching is forgiving.
  • Vince Camuto Side Ruched Jersey Midi Dress: Fitted yet forgiving. Flattering, easy, and a super duper length. Suits a range of body types and is machine washable. I wish it came in a colour other than black.
  • Vince Camuto Ruched Stripe Tank Top: This top is not as long in person, but it’s just as form-fitting. The diagonal lines do an excellent job of straightening curves and camouflaging lumpage and bumpage. And they’re just as good at adding shape to a straighter figure. Fab on a larger bust or broader shoulder line.
  • Vince Camuto Chateau Floral Side Ruched Body-Con Dress: A WOW dress. Shaped in all the right places to create a streamlined silhouette yet magically forgiving. Might run a size big. If you wear a US0 and need a narrow fit, get an XXS.
  • Naturalizer Amabella Slide Sandal: Fabulously trendy and looks like they come straight from COS. But they’re Naturalizer, so a LOT more comfortable, and healthy for your feet. Comes in regular and wide widths, and a few colours. I vote WHITE.
  • Banana Republic Stripe Handkerchief-Hem Ponte Dress: SUBLIME dress on a curvy body type. Works deliciously well on wider hips and thighs because of the flattering effect of diagonal lines. Works well on petites. Elegant length and great drape.
  • Lucky Brand Ginger Bermuda Shorts: Flattering, comfortable, easy, versatile, and works on a range of body types. A streamlined fit and even wash add a polished touch to these fab denim shorts.
  • Banana Republic Pointed-Toe Robin Ballet Flat: I couldn’t believe my luck when I tried these pretty darlings. Pointy-toe ballet flats are hard to fit because they fall off my feet, feel too flat and unsupported, and squash my toes. These are perfect. Very comfy and cushioning, have room in the toe box and a substantial sole, and stay on my feet. VERY dainty and quite dressy on the foot. For low-volume/narrow feet only. They earned a place in my wardrobe and I’m thrilled with them. Colour is more saturated in person.
  • Sanctuary Samba Midi Tank Dress: An elegantly casual midi for those who like to showcase their midsection. The ruching is forgiving, but it’s still quite clingy so consider yourself warned.
  • Vince Camuto Venue Block Stripe Ruched Body-Con Dress: A streamlined midi that’s as forgiving as it is tailored. Comfortable and easy. Wow on those who can fill it out. Armholes aren’t too wide either.
  • Earth Hibiscus: Chunky sandals for higher volume feet. The straps create diagonal lines across the vamp of the foot which is visually attractive – especially on wider ankles.
  • Earth Tierra: Happy rainbow sandals that are pretty and solid on the foot. Must be able to fill out the broad straps. Comes in three colours.
  • Earth Sunflower: A chunky sandal for higher volume feet. Modern and simple. Flattering on wider ankles. Looks great in black in a ’90s type of way.
  • Earth Allegro: A substantial ballet flat. Euro and classic. Best on a wider foot and heel.
  • Earth Venus: A more avant-garde style for high insteps. Looks great on wider feet.
  • Earth Shelly: An interesting d’Orsay flat that looks better on the foot than in the photo. Very cushioning and soft. A little boho and arty.
  • Topshop Bath Stripe Straw Tote Bag: This adorable casual tote looks better in person. Soft straw, good size, lightweight and comfortable handles. Nice for the Earthy Casual.
  • Madewell Folk Fortune Bali Rattan Top-Lid Bag: A super cute rattan crossbody binocular bag in a good size that does not scratch. Fun lining and a trendy classic. Practical top lid opening too. Great with cognac footwear. I want it.

Weekly Roundup: Assorted Summer Items

If you like knee-covering casual and dressy frocks with sleeves, stock up right now because it’s the BEST dress season I’ve seen in a long time. I was done with my Spring and Summer refresh in March, but could not resist a few more dresses. I just bought Club Monaco’s Elianna Knit Dress, because it’s exactly where I want to be with dresses. No more sheaths and sack silhouettes for now — I crave structure up top but want flare at the bottom, and I’m finding it. So I’m milking the exceptional dress season after waiting seven years for longer lengths and tailored silhouettes.

These items have been winners on my clients and our forum members recently. Browse the colour options and read the rave reviews.

  • Munro Brinn Sandal: Trendy, very comfortable, and well made. Quite chunky on the foot so consider yourself warned. Available in three colours and FIVE widths. Goes up to a US13.
  • Paul Green Raven Sandal: Moon Walking Slide Fabnes. Soft, cushioning, and well made. Best on regular and higher volume feet. Too wide for narrow feet.
  • Frye Terri Perf Oxford: Fabulous Summer oxfords in a lovely soft suede. The cracked cream leather is just as nice as the mint. Quite comfy. Best on low and regular volume feet.
  • print pajamas: Kate Spade Pyjama Fabness. Classic and adorable.
  • Frye Diana Chelsea: Western boots may be on trend, but they are always in style. Frye is a good way to go if you want a pair of timeless fashion-y western-inspired boots. These are a great fit, feel comfy, look chic, and are well made.
  • Frye Cindy Two-Piece: Chunky yet refined ankle strap sandals that are best on regular and higher volume feet. Too wide for low-volume feet. Very comfy.
  • Frye Terri Gore Mule: Fun mules for higher volume feet. Refined on the foot, and comfortable.
  • INC International Concepts I.N.C. Ruffled Denim Jacket, Created for Macy’s: One of our forum members modelled this in an XL and blew me away. It looked much better on her than on the model. The peplum is subtle, and adds a playful kick to the masculine trucker silhouette.
  • Columbia Saturday Trail II Knee Pant: Athleisure long shorts available in a range of colours. Works on both a curvier and straighter body type. Incredible reviews.
  • Alfani Printed Convertible Tunic Shirt, Created for Macy’s: Fab tunic that works best on those who can fill it out. Nice over cropped white jeans.
  • Charter Club Petite Floral-Print A-Line Dress, Created for Macy’s: Gorgeous dress on a curvy petite. One of our forum members modeled it in a PL and it looked SUBLIME. The flared skirt is flattering on a pretty pear-shaped body type. Elegant length.
  • Connected Petite Draped Sheath Dress: A flattering dress on a curvy petite. Slinky and form-fitting. Works on a pretty pear shape. Yummy.
  • CAMPER Tropik Cross Strap Wedge Sandal: A chunky wedge for higher volume feet. Sleek on the foot. Comfy.
  • COS Layered V-neck Chiffon Dress: Fab dress for Team Tall who likes to wear V-necks. The diagonal line across the torso adds an avant-garde effect that’s flattering and interesting. Suits a range of body types.
  • COS Panelled High-neck Dress: A good dress for a long neck, small bust, long torso and athletic top half. Works well on a curvy bottom half.
  • COS Short-sleeved Silk Shirt: Drapey Shirt Fabness. Size down.
  • UNIVERSAL STANDARD Geneva Dress: AMAZING silhouette on both a straighter or curvier body type. Works well on a larger bust. The side drape is genius because it adds curves to a straighter hip and flattens a curvier hip. Nice colours and rave reviews.
  • COS Shirt Dress With Gathered Hem: Imagine the sleeves scrunched and it’s a great dress for a mild Summer. It can go straight into Fall with hosiery and boots. Not for petites. Suits a range of body types. Comes in peach.
  • Vince Camuto Skinny Jeans: These are tight, but quite comfy and substantial. Not see-through. Not for wider calves.
  • CAMPER Balloon – K200611: Fun chunky sandals for regular and higher volume feet. They are bright, but come in black and silver. Works well with wider ankles.
  • CAMPER ‘Oruga’ Two Strap Slide Sandal: A refined Birkenstock vibe from Camper. Quite cushioning and supportive. Might run a little short. Works for wider feet.
  • Club Monaco Elianna Knit Dress: A navy and white striped casual and very polished midi with a GORGEOUS fit. Drapes like a dream. Heft, substance and well made. It’s very structured up top so you have to be okay with defining your torso and midsection. The length and asymmetrical hem are elegant and swooshy. Very comfy.The DOUBLE belt is NOT attached to the dress so you can place it where you like. Genius. The stripes of the belt go in different directions which is super cute. Looks great with simple flats. Machine washable. Impeccable.

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ review roundup: What the critics thought

TwitterFacebook

The latest installment of the Jurassic Park series sounds like a palatable film for fans of the series but doesn’t offer up a completely enrapturing experience the whole way through.

Reviewers have weighed in on the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to Jurassic World, and it isn’t getting the most thrilling praise so far. In this movie, a volcano at the Jurassic World theme park has erupted, sending the human protagonists and a handful of dinosaurs away from the island and into normal society which is fine for the humans but not so great for the dinosaurs.

Weekly Roundup: Assorted Items

The excellent shopping season continues and I hope you’re finding fabulous items that you’re wearing your way. The Topshop Floral Mesh Skater Dress was one of my unexpected finds, and I love it. I wasn’t initially drawn to the black background of the pattern and wished it was navy, but the flowers and leaves are in my favourite colours so I had to give it a try. It’s a perfect fit, length and silhouette, that will look equally good in Autumn worn with my tall dressy ink blue boots. The neckline fits closely around my neck thanks to a back zipper, and the fabric doesn’t crease. It’s lined with the softest knitted modal that makes it feel like you’re wearing a cotton dress.

Here’s the next roundup of winners from clients and forum members. Some items are available in an assortment of colours.

  • BP Kari Bow Loafer: An elegant, girly and pretty DRESSY loafer that’s moderately comfy on lower and regular volume feet. Many colours and they’re all nice. Great price and read the rave reviews.
  • Furla Medium Pin Shoulder Bag – Farfetch: A STUNNING quality bag and fabulous silhouette if you enjoy shoulder totes. Structured yet very versatile. Relaxed elegance, and a true white.
  • Anthropologie | Anthropologie Peplum Military Jacket: The photo does not do the darling justice. It looks better in person and drapes awfully well for a casual cotton jacket. Everyone who tried it on liked it. Looks best open, and works over dresses, jeans, pants and skirts. The olive-y brown is surprisingly flattering on most complexions. Might run a size big.
  • Treasure&Bond Tyler Metallic Leather Satchel: A verastile satchel that’s compact in size but with a lot of room.
  • Converse One Star Sneaker: These are AMAZING, and made it into my wardrobe. They’re LEATHER, very cushioning, and beautifully made. They look and feel better than designer sneakers, and at a fraction the price. Check out the inside stripes on these shoes. The quality is WOW. A little wide for my low-volume feet, but an insole and tighter lacing help. Fun red soles and pretty in blush. Comes in black too.
  • Topshop Nifty Woven Flared Heel Sandal: Fabulous sandal booties for regular volume feet, and medium comfort levels. Look dressy and chic on the foot. Office appropriate if you can wear open-toed shoes. Comes in black.
  • Halogen Ruffle Hem Zip Front Jacket: Super cute TAILORED bomber for dresses, skirts, jeans and pants. Might need to size down. Nice shade of navy.
  • Hobo Sable: Super cute, compact wristlet. A little ’60s touch and fabulous in 2018.
  • Paul Green Sally Quarter Strap Sandal: A beautifully made trendy classic with added comfort. Size down half a size for lower volume feet, and tighten the straps. Works as well for higher volume feet. The cognac is as lovely.
  • Banana Republic Lace Midi Pencil Skirt: A fab skirt for both curvier and straighter figures. Dress it up or down, and excellent with a denim jacket. Good on petites.
  • Talbots Tweed Contrast-Trim Jacket: One of the best dressy Spring tweed jackets of the year. Impeccable quality, and brilliant on petites. Elongating and elegant.
  • Calvin Klein Faux Suede Moto Jacket: BUTTERY soft faux suede topper that is as comfy as can be. Excellent on a larger bust. Not good on petites. Runs a size big. The pale pink is yummy too. Fab pewter hardware.
  • Halogen Ruffle Zip Jacket: This jacket looks like a COS item. Avant-garde and GORGEOUS. The overwhelming sleeves are architectural, and the drawstring tailoring on the torso is genius. Looks as fab in tan. Runs a size big.
  • Halogen Tuxedo Stripe Straight Leg Jeans: Fun trendy jeans that run a size big. Best on a longer rise and torso. Works well on curvier hips, bottom and thighs. Read the rave reviews.
  • Franco Sarto SARTO by Franco Sarto Kenan Platform Sandal: Fun flatform Euro sandals for high-volume feet. Lots of good neutrals.
  • Talbots Womans Exclusive Wrap-Front Knit Jersey Top: A beautifully streamlined faux wrap top to wear as is or under a jacket. Works with all sorts of bottoms. Substantial fabric and a quality item. Flattering, forgiving, and sharp.
  • Sole Society ‘Katarina’ Block Heel Pump: A versatile and comfy pump that works on an assortment of feet. Great block heel. Read the rave reviews and browse the fun colours.
  • Naturalizer Emiline Flat Loafer: I can’t rave enough about these loafers, which I wore on a shopping day with a client on their first outing. They are SUBLIME. Extremely comfortable, stay on your feet, and come in a wide width. The regular width works for lower volume feet with the addition of an insole. All the colours are nice, but rose metallic is unique – so my blush-loving self got those. They are instant wardrobe workhorses.
  • Pilcro And The Letterpress | Anthropologie Pilcro Embroidered High-Rise Cropped Bootcut Jeans: AMAZING quality jeans that work on curvier and straighter figures. Looks designer. Fabulous fit and length. Casually dressy and simply charming. Very even distressing.
  • Maeve | Anthropologie Cleary Dress: A fabulous casual dress WITH POCKETS. Forgiving of lumpage and bumpage. Works well on Team Tall with plenty of length. The photo is a very good gauge on how the dress falls on a 5ft 10 client who wore a size large. Available in patterns and solids.
  • Topshop Floral Print Mesh Skater Dress by YAS: I have this dress, which looks and falls just like how the model is wearing it in the photo. Gorgeous length, does not crease, and is extremely comfy. It’s an easy silhouette and elegant length. Will look equally good in Autumn with tall dressy boots. The neckline fits closely around my neck thanks to a back zipper, and the fabric doesn’t crease. It’s lined with the softest knitted modal and feels like you’re wearing a cotton dress.
  • Klub Nico Dallas Woven Sandal: A polished and comfy sandal bootie in a pretty shade of blush pink. Fab block heel, and office appropriate. Read the rave reviews.
  • Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Ohana Sandal: A dystopian mule for Team High-Volume feet. All the neutrals are nice.
  • Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Shiloh Block Heel Sandal: Well-made and fun looking dressy sandals that are quite comfy for regular volume feet. I love the blush colour way.
  • Ancient Greek Sandals Niki Slide Sandal: Cute Grecian slides for very casual outfits. Elegant and Summery. Works on regular volume feet and are moderately comfy.
  • Gorjana Laguna Adjustable Lariat Necklace: An adjustable and therefore versatile lariat necklace that comes in three metals.
  • Furla Handbag: I’m a huge Furla fan, and added this wardrobe pet to my happy Furla family of eight this year. It became an instant wardrobe workhorse as it complements my many pairs of blush shoes. I find blush very versatile and it functions like a neutral for my style. The quality is sublime, and size just perfect for my needs and small frame. It’s structured, but looks as good with pink sneakers. It can be converted into a crossbody and is great for travel. Adds polish to an outfit. All the colours are nice.
  • Halogen Lace & Pinstripe Pencil Skirt: An interesting floral lace skirt with a pinstriped lining. Fits an hourglass and straighter hourglass really well, but is a little straight for a pretty pear. Elegant length and gorgeous Summery look.

Did you know that a Stevengraph is a type of small picture made from brightly coloured woven silk, produced during the late 19th century. They are named after English weaver Thomas Stevens, whose company made them. Many of the designs were used to produce bookmarks, and the colourful details make the featured subjects, like clothing, stand out beautifully.

Weekly Roundup: Tops & Toppers

I’m doing a Fab Finds post and roundup post in one week because there are lots of winners to share this season. These particular items were client favourites recently, and we’ve actually had some Spring weather to do them justice. Be sure to browse all the colour options and read the rave reviews.

  • Vineet Bahl | Anthropologie Giovanna Silk Blouse: A romantic blouse with beautiful blouson sleeves that are cuffed so that they don’t drive you batty. A warm earthy colour. Great semi-tucked. Best suited to a smaller bust.
  • Wilt | Anthropologie WHIT Gingham Wrapped Blouse: A structured wrap top with architectural ruching. Tailored and forgiving on the midsection. Great over high-rise pants and skirts. Olive gingham is unusual. Best suited to those who can fill out the bust and/or shoulder line.
  • Eri + Ali | Anthropologie Audrina Lace Top: Pretty lace top that works on a range of body types. Fluid yet streamlined. Not see-through. Shorter bell sleeves are the way to go so that they don’t annoy you.
  • One September | Anthropologie Sydney Floral Top: A knitted boho-lite blouse with excellent drape. Casually pretty.
  • Club Monaco Weylyn Shirt: Best hectic architectural shirt I’ve seen to date. Gorgeous shade of blue. Beats most of the designer styles to my eye, and much more affordable. Oversized, yet tapered in all the right places which adds just enough structure. It’s not overwhelming, even on my slight frame. It earned a place in my wardrobe despite the wide neck because the cut is BRILLIANT. The collar that drapes down the back is cleverly positioned, and my chunky pearls fill in the gap on my neck. I like it best semi-tucked for structure. I wear it with Summer skirts and white jeans. I LOVE this shirt. My wild card for the season. Party at the back, and good with short hair to showcase the back detailing.
  • Madewell Central Ruffle Sleeve Shirt: The ruffle sleeve shirt has more structure around the neck and shoulders than a wrap top and looked much better on my body type despite the oversized fit. The flutter sleeves also broaden my frame, and I like the effect. The fabric is GORGEOUS and drapes very well, and it followed me home. Size down a size.
  • Michael Stars | Anthropologie Michael Stars Shine V-Neck Long-SleeveTee: Fab V-neck tee that works on a curvier figure. Does not cling. Substantial fabric. Flattering and versatile. Streamlined. The XS/S will fit US0 to 4. The M/L will fit US6 to 10.
  • City Chic Classic Trench Coat: Gorgeous trench coat for Team Tall with a regular or long waist. Best on a curvy body type with a defined midsection. STUNNING length. Elegant.
  • LEVI’S MADE & CRAFTED Embellished Boyfriend Trucker Jacket: A statement denim jacket if ever there was one. The embellishment is quite the work of art. It straddles the line of Tomboy and Girly and creates a fab juxtaposition. It’s NOT a tailored fit. Looks like a designer piece.
  • Loft Elbow Patch Knit Blazer: I couldn’t believe my eyes. A Summer equestrian tweed blazer that is 100% COTTON, fully lined, and machine washable. Gorgeously soft and comfy. Tailored, and works on a range of body types. The pearl grey is lovelier in person. Size down.
  • Loft Swingy Raincoat: Super cute Modern Retro raincoat. It’s supposed to be trapeze-shaped and roomy. Size down.
  • Anthropologie | Anthropologie Easy Moto Jacket: Best knitted moto jacket of the season. Extremely comfy, tailored, relaxed and distressed, yet quite polished. It suits a range of body types because the fabric and cut mould to the body. Also available in a warm earthy apricot.
  • Banana Republic Collarless Peplum Denim Jacket: If you don’t like stiff Tomboy denim jackets – TRY THIS ONE. It’s extremely soft, comfortable, and has a lot of stretch. Very tailored and quite sharp in silhouette. FLATTERING. The fit is fabulously streamlined despite the subtle peplum. It’s longer in person than on the model, so don’t worry about that too much. Every client who has tried it on so far has liked it. It works on a range of body types because it’s tailored and moulds to the body. It can absolutely pass for business casual because you have to look very closely to notice that it’s denim. Plus, you can dress it up. Fab with pants, jeans, skirts and dresses. It’s uniqueness and my love for denim jackets gave it a spot in my wardrobe.
  • Loft Peplum Utility Jacket: This utility jacket looks better in person and is available in olive. It’s soft, pretty, trendy, and excellent layered over bell sleeves. Size down a size. The sleeves look even better folded over once to create a cuff.
  • FRAME Stripe Blazer: Gorgeous blazer made of luxurious fabric that is non-crease and drapes like a dream. Soft, pretty, sharp and professional. Size down, and best on a straighter body type. A quality item. It took my breath away when I saw it modelled by a forum member in person.
  • Halogen Tweed Open Front Jacket: It’s unusual to see a Spring tweed jacket with a revere collar that creates a flattering V-neck, AND is in jewel tones. Best on those who can fill it out. Suited to a larger bust, apple-shaped body type, and short waist.
  • Rebecca Taylor Ava Peplum Jacket: Stunning business formal jacket that layers over pencil skirts and sheath dresses with the best of them. The peplum is subtle and architectural. A quality item. Black, not navy.
  • Boden Long Sleeve Wrap Top: A form-fitting faux wrap made of substantial fabric. Does not cling despite the close fit. Excellent layered under jackets and blazers. Comes in colours and patterns. Nice quality.
  • Boden Sylvia Jacket: A playful Modern Retro jacket that’s extremely well made. Stunning fabric and workmanship. A-line in silhouette and works on a range of body types. The yellow is more mustard than citron in person. Works really well over skirts and dresses too.
  • Boden Claremont Blazer: An impeccable Modern Classic blazer that looks chic. The finish inside is beautiful, and the lining might make you smile. Works on a range of body types because of the superb cut and quality fabric.
  • Loft Striped Stitchy Boatneck Sweater: Best classic striped Spring pullover I’ve seen all season. The inset side colour blocking is genius, creating a vertical streamlined effect that offsets the horizontal stripes. The neckline works on a range of body types. Nice fabric and good length. Size down.
  • Loft Dotted Lantern Sleeve Shirred Blouse: Pretty lantern sleeve blouse that layers quite well under a blazer because the exuberant sleeves are soft and slippery allowing them to comfortably collapse and hold their shape when the layer is removed. Size down.
  • Loft Brushed Dot Cutout Mixed Media Shell: A simple and effective shell top to wear under a cardigan or jacket. Comes in plus sizes. Size down.
  • Marrakech | Anthropologie Magnolia Zip Jacket: I haven’t seen this jacket in person yet, but it looks interesting, and has super cute back detailing.
  • Nordstrom Signature Waffle Stitch Cashmere Sweater: A warm pullover in a Spring colour ticks off the boxes when Spring feels like Winter. A quality piece that comes in turquoise. Sleeves are long but can be cuffed. Works on a range of body types. Fluid yet streamlined fit.
  • Banana Republic Double Breasted-Fit Seersucker Blazer: A pinstripe seersucker blazer that looks better in person. It can hang open so don’t worry about buttoning the front. Crisp, fresh and on trend. Works really well on petites. My 5ft client wore it over a sheath dress and looked stunning.

Resource Roundup for New Homeowners

Becoming a homeowner can be an overwhelming experience. Often, there is a lot of information coming at you from all angles, so we’ve compiled some of our top blog posts for first-time real estate owners to help you through the stages of buying and owning your first home.

Buying a New Home

Millennial Homeownership: A Look Ahead

There are a variety of obstacles that can prevent millennials from becoming homeowners. Increased debt and the need for millennials to be “mobile” (moving for school or job opportunities) suggests that home purchases will most likely be made later in life.

4 Ways to Buy a Home Without a Mortgage

Several options are available for people who wish to purchase a home without a mortgage. This post goes through four of those possibilities, including renting-to-own, getting owner financing, securing a private loan, and simply paying for your home with cash.

The Hidden Costs of Buying Your First Home

Extra costs may be involved in purchasing your first home that are not immediately obvious. Things like landscaping, utility hookup fees, moving expenses, and home insurance are just some of those costs. Make sure you’re prepared for unexpected expenses with a safety net of extra cash.

Choosing the Best Neighborhood to Purchase Real Estate

When you’re purchasing a new home, you’ll want to consider the surrounding area before making your final decision. Things like schools, parks, transportation, and amenities are all factors that can influence whether you buy or not.

Protecting Your Home

Home Inspections: Why Every Buyer Should Have One

Before you sign on the dotted line to solidify the purchase of your new home, you should get a home inspection to make sure there are no hidden problems or repairs. Usually your realtor (if you’re using one) can recommend a home inspector, but other times you may need to find one yourself. In general, it should be someone that is trustworthy, has the proper certification and experience, and can provide references.

A First-Time Buyer’s Guide to Home Security

Make sure that your new home is protected by investing in home security. Some home security factors can be addressed before the home is purchased, like making sure the home you choose is located in a safe neighborhood. However, many new homeowners overlook little things, such as changing the locks if the house has been owned before. Some homeowners also choose to install a home security system or surveillance cameras for extra peace of mind.

Homeowner’s Insurance Basics

Getting homeowner’s insurance is a very important step for protecting your home. Insurance policies for homes can vary the same way that they can vary for vehicles, so it’s important to not only shop around, but take the time to meet with an insurance agent and go through your policy options.

How New Homeowners Can Organize and Plan Home Maintenance

Home maintenance is a big part of protecting your new home. Regular maintenance can help prevent problems and keep your repair costs down. Taking the time to schedule what needs to be done as well as recording the details of your home and taking changing seasons and weather into consideration is worth it in the long run.

Tips and Tricks for Homeowners

7 Things No One Told You About Becoming a Homeowner

The responsibilities of homeownership may not be immediately obvious to someone who has just purchased their first home. Maintenance can be costly and is always ongoing, and if you want to build something new on your home or property (like a patio or deck) you most likely need to secure a building permit from your local municipality. A new house is a work in progress and it takes time for it to become a home.

Real (Estate) Talk: Advice, Tips, and Trends for Homeowners

Before you decide how you are going to go about buying a new home, it helps to get some practical advice. Real estate experts can give you insight on things like emerging real estate trends, what buyers are looking for in a home, and home maintenance.

4 Ways to Reduce Your Mortgage Costs

The lower the mortgage cost, the better. Learning how to shop around for the best rates and knowing what you are in for with mortgage debt will help you feel confident that you made the right decision with your first mortgage.

4 Questions Every First-Time Homebuyer Should Ask

Asking the right questions when buying your first home can make an otherwise confusing process easier. If you go into the process understanding exactly what a mortgage is, the chances of getting the loan rate you want, and the types of lenders are available to you, it will help you make the best possible decision for your situation.

Becoming a New Homeowner

Armed with the information and knowledge you need, you’re on your way to becoming a new homeowner. It’s always a good idea to do your own research and gather all the information you can to aid you in your quest for a new home. While it can be a long process, owning your first home is a huge milestone and a rewarding experience for many.

What are your top tips for purchasing a new home? Let us know in the comments!

Weekly Roundup: Assorted Items

More good stuff at retail this week. These items were winners on my clients and on forum members, and two pairs of the jeans made it into my wardrobe to replenish my jeans capsule. Ann Taylor’s White Frayed Jeans are an excellent extra wardrobe essential, which you can see fitted on me in this forum thread. Pilcro’s Lemon Grove High Rise Cropped Bootcut Jeans are deliciously playful and a maximally fun addition to my jeans capsule. I LOVE patterned pants.

  • Maeve | Anthropologie Tallulah Lace Skirt: A stunning length skirt that looks awfully elegant and pretty. Can work on a straighter and curvier body type. Lightweight and Summery. The lace is soft and looks like a stained glass window. Turquoise is rare in fashion these days, so the skirt has my attention. I’m deciding whether it will earn a place in my skirt capsule.
  • Boden Effie Silk Top: A handy little layering shell to wear under blazers and jackets – or on its own. Crisp, polished, and beautifully made. Plenty of armhole coverage. Available in solids.
  • KUT KOLLECTION KUT from the Kloth Catherine Boyfriend Jeans: Great jeans for a curvier body type. Straighter body types need to size down. Thick fabric, and a good mid-length rise for shorter waists. The crisp embroidery is a fun juxtaposition against the very washed out denim.
  • Ann Taylor Frayed Crop Jeans in White: The best white jeans of the season because they look like JEANS – not leggings. Fabric is quite thick. Not too stretchy. Crisp. Not too soft. NOT body-con. Not see-through. Nice pocket linings. Don’t suck the living daylights out of you. Plenty of room on the calves. Run TTS unless you’re narrow on the hips and thighs, in which case you could size down. They fit me tighter and shorter than on the model. They earned a place in my wardrobe, and I’m thrilled with them.
  • Pilcro And The Letterpress | Anthropologie Pilcro Lemon Grove High-Rise Cropped Bootcut Jeans: If you’re into warm-weather maximal jeans, crisp patterns, sour colours, and cropped flares – try these. The fabric is thick, not too stretchy, and very polished. The fit works well on a straighter or curvier body type because it moulds to your shape in a tailored and not body-con way. They are a little longer on me than on the model. A quality piece with a retro vibe, and I adore them.
  • Rebecca Minkoff Moonwalking Leather Satchel: A beautifully on-trend tote for Team Lilac. On sale.
  • Summit by White Mountain Elodie: Despite the ’90s platform, these booties are surprisingly refined on the foot. Super cute and space-age casual. Comfortable, forgiving, very lightweight, and sturdy. The silver is warmer in person. Available in bronze.
  • Freda Salvador | Anthropologie Freda Salvador Oxford D’Orsay Flats: Gorgeous cut-out oxfords for Team Teal. Refined Rocker with subtle stud detailing. Might need to size down half a size.
  • Lauren Ralph Lauren Trench Coat: Good SINGLE-breasted trench coat in yummy watermelon. Fab on both a smaller and larger bust. Streamlining. Fits a range of body types. Available in olive and black.
  • Hobbs Saskia Trench: I love the length of this trench because it’s elegant and versatile. Best on a small or regular bust, but works quite well on a larger bust because the lapels of the collar fold down to create a flattering V-neck. These are British sizes so size up two sizes for the US equivalent.
  • Veronica Beard Britton Shirtdress: Structured Smart Casual Fabness. My heart skipped a beat when I saw my client in this number. STUNNING on a straighter boyish body type with a square shoulder line and smaller bust. The buttons are going to pull across the front of the skirt if your hips and thighs are curvier so consider yourself warned. The buttons break up the black very effectively.
  • Karen Kane Lace Trim Top: Boho-Lite Fabness. Pretty and streamlined despite the volume. Comes in white and is bra-friendly.
  • COFFEE SHOP Gingham Hooded Rain Jacket: Super cute Modern Retro raincoat that works on a range of body types. Might need to size up a size.
  • Pilcro And The Letterpress | Anthropologie Pilcro Mid-Rise Slim Boyfriend Jeans: Adorable floral jeans that work well on a curvier and straighter body type. Hem can be shortened. Works well on a short waist and short rise.
  • Loft Wildflower Satin Split Neck Blouse: The photo does not do the ’70s inspired blouse justice. The insets and piping are well made and give the top personality. Vibrant and festive. Might need to size down.
  • Banana Republic Sloan Skinny-Fit Floral Pant: The great thing about these pants is that the floral pattern does not stretch out and distort when it’s on the body. Works well on both a curvier and straighter body type. Crisp and polished in a smart casual way.
  • Zara Metallic Leather Moccasins: These heeled loafers look better in person and on the foot. More professional and polished than you would think. Great with cropped pants, skirts and dresses, and quite comfortable.
  • Massimo Dutti Red Nappa Leather Ankle Boots: Stunning bootie for low-volume feet and narrow ankles. Don’t touch them unless your feet and ankles are narrow because the fit is VERY slim. Fit like Ferragamos. Extremely comfortable for low-volume feet, and beautifully made. They are super soft and “sock-like,” so NOT a robust shoe. They would have been mine if they were more tomato and less fire engine red.
  • Banana Republic Gingham Flounce Tee: A handy textured knit top with an effective avant-garde flavour. Crease-resistant. Very straight on the waist, and runs a size big. Comes in navy and white.

Remember that more and more regular sized collections are offering extended size ranges to include US14 to US20 so be sure to check sizes before you assume that your size is not available. Browse the collar options.

Weekly Roundup: Moody Patterns

Apart from the gingham dress at the end, these patterns are what I call “moody” because they are as happy and cheerful, as they are strict and heavy. They have a literal and figurative darkness to them that is neither sweet nor light-hearted, but they have a substance and richness that’s appealing. 

I’ve seen most of the items in person, and some of them worked well on my clients. The Boden Eleanor Dress in cherry gingham earned a spot in my wardrobe.

  • Massimo Dutti Pleated Shirt With Floral Print: A dramatic trapeze blouse with a party of pleating at the back. It’s machine washable, and bra friendly. Very well made. It works just fine with a black bra and camisole straps peeking through the sheer yoke. Voluminous yet refined and drapey. Elegant. It would have been mine if the colours weren’t as cool-toned. Quality item.
  • Vince Camuto Poetic Dots Sleeveless V-Neck Blouse: Clients rave about these shells because the V-neck is flattering. A great blouse to layer under blazers, but runs a size big. Crease-resistant and polished.
  • Chaus Dot Print Bell Sleeve Blouse: Fun top for a curvy body type and larger bust. It’s surprisingly streamlining on an apple-shaped body type.
  • INC International Concepts Polka-Dot Sweater, Created for Macy’s: An easy pullover to throw on and go. Streamlined. Read the rave reviews.
  • Massimo Dutti Floral Print Silk Shirt With Bow Detail: An unusal shape blouse and floral pattern. The voluminous sleeves drape and taper back on the wrist. The ties at the wrist can be shortened so that they aren’t fussy. Best on those who can fill it out. Not for petites, and overwhelmed my frame.
  • Rebecca Taylor Ikat Floral Stretch Silk Pants: Gorgeous drapey palazzo pants that work best on a curvy figure with a defined waist and longer torso if you’re going to showcase the waistband. Works just fine on a shorter waist if you wear untucked tops and cover the waistband.
  • Ann Taylor Winter Floral Puff Sleeve Shift Dress: Little Black Dress Lite. I like the asymmetrical floral pattern. A frock that can be worn as a dress or as a tunic over cropped straights or flares. Runs a size big, and suits a range of body types. Sleeves are more voluminous in person. Structured, but not tailored. Unlined, but great drape and nice fabric.
  • Caslon Print Scarf: If you like cool colours, this is a great Spring scarf. It’s big so best on a taller gal, or be prepared for scarf volume.
  • City Chic Misty Floral Cold Shoulder Top: Gorgeously streamlined cold shoulder top. Fab placement of the floral pattern that creates the effect of a diagonal line. Read the rave reviews.
  • Massimo Dutti Flocked Polka Dot Shirt With Gathering Detail: A flocked micro polka dot blouse with Edwardian sleeves that layer quite well under a jacket. Voluminous so best tucked or semi-tucked.
  • Anuschka Handbags 551 Medium Expandable Convertible Tote: A hand-painted leather bag is unique, and this one is for Team Pink & Purple. Arty and streamlined.
  • Zara Embellished City Bag: Graphic Polka Dot Crossbody Fabness. The wide strap is extra comfortable.
  • Ted Baker London Ornate Opulent Fauna Bomber: Beautifully made Sporty Luxe bomber jacket with an interesting bird pattern. Comes in black. Might run a size small. A quality item.
  • Boden Eleanor Dress: Impeccable quality CASUAL shirt dress with side entry pockets. It’s fluid on the waist but structured on the shoulder and hips. Perfect for a hot Summer’s day. As fun worn as a tunic over cropped straights. Best on a straighter figure, narrower hip, or apple-shaped body type. Can work well on a larger bust. Goes up to a US18. Comes in regular and long, AND in blue gingham. The red is a shade of watermelon. I love this happy and very crisp Summer dress, and don’t mind one bit that I look like a Modern Retro tablecloth when wearing it.

Weekly Roundup: Spring Prep

Fun Spring items are surfacing at retail, and especially online. I’m enjoying the resurgence of structure, tailoring, and dressiness, because it’s been a while since we’ve seen them make a fashion statement. There are LOTS of skirts and dresses, which is a nice change too. 

Here are items that were winners on my clients this week. Some of them earned a place in my wardrobe.

  • Boden Julieta Lace Dress: A WOW casual lace dress. A modern classic casual Summer frock WITH LENGTH that looks gorgeously fresh amidst a sea of unstructured minis. The lace is soft and the dress is lined. The tailoring is gorgeous. Party at the back. The length cannot be hemmed, but petite lengths are an option. Best on a longer and defined waist, but can work on a straighter body type. A little tricky on a larger bust and short waist. It’s an awfully pretty dress that has earned a place in my wardrobe. I intend to wear it CASUALLY with flats. I don’t like the way it’s been styled with dressy heels here. Runs a size big so I need to have mine altered to fit. (Stocks are already low).
  • Pilcro And The Letterpress | Anthropologie Pilcro Embroidered Mid-Rise Cropped Bootcut Jeans: These jeans look like casual patterned pants, and are awfully cute in a Modern Retro way. The washed denim does not look distressed. Polished! They will fit both a curvier and straighter body type because they mould to the body – but NOT in a jeggings type way. Fabric is thick creating a tailored look, so you feel like you’re wearing jeans and not tights. A quality item that followed me home. I could not resist the pretty embroidered white daisies. I will need to have them altered at the back of the waist to fit perfectly.
  • Ann Taylor Plaid Pencil Skirt: A very comfortable and ultra soft pencil skirt that works on a range of body types.
  • Ann Taylor Double Breasted Tweed Jacket: A boxy Spring tweed blazer that works on a larger bust. Amazing white buttons.
  • MATISSE Half Moon Ankle Strap Loafer: Great backless ankle strap loafers for wider feet. Comfy and quite unique. They were too wide for me, but super cute on the foot.
  • SSUNG | Anthropologie Tenor Check Shirt Dress: A fab dress for a curvy body type like an hourglass or pretty pear. Excellent on a larger bust, and on-trend over a pair of skinnies or leggings.
  • Halogen Pocket Detail Stripe Tunic Top: The photo does not do the style of the shirt justice. It’s well made and creates a nice avant-garde effect over slim bottoms. Lovely pinstripe. Weighty fabric.
  • Chino By Anthropologie | Anthropologie Relaxed Embroidered Chino Pants: Great chinos for a straight, boyish body with narrow thighs. Lilac gets my vote.
  • Anthropologie | Anthropologie Washed Wanderer Utility Pants: Great chinos for a curvy body type that need room on the thighs. You must sink the waistband lower onto the hips though. The mustard looks surprisingly fresh.
  • Anthropologie Embroidered Wanderer Utility Pants: Pretty embroidered chinos for both a slightly straighter or curvier body type.
  • Hispanitas Melanie Pointy Toe Pump: Very comfortable and well made teal floral pumps. Quality item.

News of Interest to Overachieving Chicks (2017 roundup!)

2016 Career News for Young Working WomenHappy Almost 2018! We realize that many of you may not have time to click on all (or maybe any) of the links in each week’s Weekly News Update, so we’ve gathered some of the most notable or memorable stories that we highlighted during the past year, organized by topic. Readers: Tell us some of your favorite news stories that were relevant to overachieving chicks during 2017 (whether we covered them or not)?

Interesting Stories on Work Fashion

  • The Atlantic took a stab at why workwear went from suits and ties to, well, just about anything as long as there isn’t “too much skin.”
  • The Work Uniform: The Washingtonian talked to Renata Briggman, who adopted a work uniform to avoid having to decide what to wear: “she wears black slacks, black shoes, a grey blazer and a white shirt. Every. Single. Day.” Along similar lines, Business Insider shared how a work uniform can streamline your routine — and Fast Company provided six women’s work uniforms to save time and energy when getting ready in the morning.
  • Bored Panda told the story of 63-year-old Fordham professor Lyn Slater, who was mistaken for a fashion celeb during New York Fashion Week and now works as a model with Elite London. (Love this story!)
  • Racked shared where to find “nude” lingerie for all skintones.
  • Huffington Post shared Chelsea Clinton’s response to comments about her favorite pair of scuffed-up pumps.
  • Here are the 2016 Award Winning Undies as voted by the customers of HerRoom (affiliate link).
  • The Atlantic told the lesser-known history of the little black dress.
  • The Huffington Post reported that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced plans to update the decades-old House dress code after its recent criticisms — and the The New York Times shared readers’ responses to its article about “appropriate” work attire.

Career-Related News of Note

  • Love this: A Forbes contributor shared the “Court Lobster Strategy” as a way to gain confidence and head off imposter syndrome.
  • Wired told you how to erase files and back up what you need when you leave a job.
  • Quartz listed three strategies to combat sexist interruptions; meanwhile, Fortune explained how to cut down on “manterrupting”: by avoiding starting questions with “‘sorry,’ ‘may I ask,’ ‘can I ask,’ ‘excuse me,’ or by addressing [someone] by name” and using a more aggressive style. Meanwhile, The Daily Dot defined the new term “he-peating” as when a woman’s idea gets shut down and “a male colleague not only repeats this same idea, he gets credit for it.” (Ad may autoplay.)
  • Quartz offered 10 CEOs’ top interview questions and tests for prospective employees. Have you heard any of these before?
  • Harvard Business Review looked at the downsides of being recognized as a star performer and “future leader” at work.
  • U.S. News noted that “76 percent of hiring managers believe that ‘being interesting’ is the most crucial quality they look for when interviewing to fill a new position.”
  • Ms. JD shared how a lawyer stood her ground in court, even after opposing counsel and the clerk told her she looked like a 12-year-old girl.

Feminism/Rawr News

(This is by no means a complete compendium even of our coverage of all of the many, many stories that made 2017’s word of the year “feminism” — these are just some of the ones that jumped out as being memorable or made me click on them again.)

  • There were one or two stories this year about sexual harassment allegations — maybe you saw them? Dahlia Lithwick at Slate shared how she felt complicit in some way with regards to Ninth Circuit judge Alex Kozinski,  Lindy West opined in the The New York Times on why “we have all been seething, in our various states of breaking open or, as [Uma] Thurman chooses, waiting,” and Bustle asked whether the heroes of several popular romantic movies were actually sexually harassing the heroines.
  • Slate rounded up some of the best signs from the Women’s March — but didn’t include Kat’s favorite.
  • Gosh, it’s hard to believe that #ShePersisted just started in 2017 – Huffington Post had the details.
  • “Dear Lady”: The Atlantic featured rejection letters from the Society of Women Engineers archive; meanwhile, Above the Law shared a Biglaw memo from 1956 that explains how to deal with “Lady Lawyers,” aka “girls.”
  • Harvard Business Review shared the results of a series of studies involving mock resumes sent to law firms. They found that “elite employers discriminate strongly based on social class, favoring applicants from higher-class backgrounds [and that] coming from an advantaged social background helps only men.”
  • Fast Company told the story of two women entrepreneurs who had better luck getting investors after they created a fake male cofounder.
  • Readers recently discussed a Harvard Gazette article, “The Internal Marriage Tax of Women M.B.A.s,” that was shared in the comments.
  • The Hill suspected the Swedish climate minister was trolling certain people with an all-women photo, and Forbes rounded up the best working women’s responses to #DressLikeAWoman campaign.
  • This was also an epic year for recognition of the invisible labor that women often bear – this comic by the French artist Emma had a fresh look at why women tend to be the “manager of household chores.” (We’ve also talked about the “default parent” problem over on CorporetteMoms quite a bit, from how to ask for help from your partner to how to avoid being the only one thinking about the little things (i.e. share the emotional labor).)

Lifestyle Advice for Overachieving Chicks

  • Thought Catalog had some good tips for true self-care—beyond salt baths and chocolate cake.
  • The Everygirl provided 20 recipes you can prep on Sunday for healthy meals you’ll want to eat the rest of the week, and BuzzFeed rounded up 11 lazy, er, quick and easy (and tasty!) recipes from food bloggers.
  • In its “Money Diaries” series, Refinery29 featured a finance VP with a salary off $ 230K.
  • Need motivation for a 2018 workout routine? Politico shared Justice Ginsburg’s personal trainer’s tips (the Notorious R.B.G. is pretty strong!).
  • May you never need them, but: these suggestions from Tip Hero may help you survive a work shooting.

Articles and Posts We’re Still Laughing Over

  • Thumb typing school, you guys: The Huffington Post had the deets on this viral Facebook post (about being interrupted by a man who offered to be her mentor, even though he had zero relevant experience that would benefit her writing career or, uh, probably anyone’s career) and it was awesome. (Appropriately enough, she was reading Men Explain Things To Me at the time.)
  • Don’t miss Prince William dancing like a dork, from Jezebel.
  • The Onion recreated TJ Maxx’s shopping experience online. Meanwhile, McSweeney’s offered retail-therapy suggestions for a variety of unpleasant thoughts.
  • Pajiba rounded up some amusing reactions to Ivanka Trump’s new book.
  • Drowned in moonlight, strangled by her bra: New York magazine’s The Cut collected some of Carrie Fisher’s best quotes, and BuzzFeed rounded up some tweets paying tribute to her.
  • Having a yucky week? This isn’t funny but it is uplifting: The Huffington Post has a firsthand account of how Dr. Mary-Claire King survived what could have been her worst week ever—or at least the plot of a sad country song—and how it led to the project that became BRCA1.

Weekly Roundup: Hosiery

You might like to refresh last year’s holiday dress with a new and fun pair of pantyhose, add statement socks to a tried-and-tested outfit, or wear knee-highs instead of socks or hosiery. My holiday dress this year is a burgundy lantern sleeve shift from Ann Taylor. I’ll be sporting a tonal vibe by combining it with micro polka dot Bordeaux hose (the first item in the roundup) instead of sheer black or black micro fishnets. Gold shoes, a cherry red suede clutch and a pile of pearls will finish off the look.

Here’s a short roundup of fab hosiery and socks to get you into the holiday mood as we slow down for the long Thanksgiving weekend.

  • Oroblu Cloe Polka Dot Tights: A little pricey but quite robust, and awfully dainty and pretty on the leg. Cute with burgundy or metallic footwear. Unfortunately the burgundy is sold out but they might restock for the holidays.
  • Nordstrom 3-Pack Sheer Knee Highs: These are my favourite knee-highs that I wear very regularly. Available in a few shades of nude and have just come out with navy. I bought the navy right away, along with my usual shade of nude and a SOFT black, which is gentler than the sheer black.
  • Spanx Lace Socks: Fun socks to wear with black loafers or oxfords, along with cropped pants or jeans to show them off. Wearing black elsewhere in the outfit helps pull the look together.
  • BEAUTIFUL LEGS BY CAROLINE Fleming Dream On Pantyhose: Swirly patterns add a Modern AND Retro vibe to your outfit. Pattern mix the hose with a dress or skirt, if you dare.
  • Spanx Honeycomb Shaper Tights: The subtle yet strong honeycomb pattern is for Team Geometric. The control top is quite comfortable, and I vote burgundy instead of black.
  • Nordstrom Diamond Tights: The diamond pattern is not as bold in person, especially once it’s under a knee-length dress. Maximal in a minimal way with the fishnet. Effective and quite flattering on the leg. Great with a blue dress or skirt.

Weekly Roundup: Burgundy Boots

There are many shades of dark red, from the yummiest cherry to the deepest bordeaux and everything in-between. For simplicity’s sake, I’m calling these rich Autumn and Winter reds “burgundy.” 

Burgundy boots are fabulous, and many of my clients have a pair. Despite being awfully loyal to tomato red, I’ve thrown in some burgundy for Fall too. I bought a gorgeous pair of dressy and flat Italian boots in the Netherlands last month. They are such a dark shade of red that they look brown. They bookend my new dark brown specs, which works out well. I also bought a burgundy and light blue scarf to complete the complement.

Although I’ve created a complement, my suggestion is to just wear burgundy boots, and don’t worry to much about repeating the colour elsewhere in the outfit. Wear them like a neutral. I haven’t worn the burgundy scarf yet, but have thrown the booties into a mismatched outfit a couple of times. This is 2017, so why not!

Burgundy boots pick up burgundy highlighted hair quite beautifully too. 

Here’s a selection of burgundy boots across a range of price points that have been winners on clients this season. Many come in a shade of grey or black too. 

  • La Canadienne Jil: The most beautifully simple, sleek, casually dressy flat bootie of them all. The high shaft is AMAZING, and works on a narrow and regular width ankle. Too narrow for wide ankles. Toe box is roomy, and fits an orthotic. Can work on higher volume feet, but not wide feet. WEATHERPROOF and very comfortable. Gorgeous quality. Pricy, but stunning.
  • SKECHERS Prima – Leather Laces: Fabulously roomy, chunky sneakers. Fits an orthotic and is great for high volume feet. Hi-top silhouette does not cut into your ankle.
  • Franco Sarto Brandy: A basic Boho-Lite style with clean lines. More comfortable than expected. Refined topstitching, and solid heel. Not a heavy shoe.
  • Rockport Cobb Hill Collection Cobb Hill Aria: A very comfy lace-up bootie that looks fab with casual skirts and dresses. Works best on ankles and feet that can fill out the silhouette. The burgundy has a touch of purple.
  • Børn Felicia Knee High Boot: A super flattering tall boot for calf circumferences of 14.5 to 15 inches. Comfy, sleek and casual.
  • Børn Karava Bootie: The leather on these boots is sublimely soft. WOW. Very comfy and fits higher volume feet. Nice arch support. All the colours are fab.
  • Rockport Cobb Hill Bethany Boot: The red is cool-toned, and more cherry in person. Great for higher volume feet, and fits an orthotic. Comfortable and supportive. The back zipper means that you don’t have to do up the laces. The bootie looks a LOT more polished when you tuck the ends of the laces away.
  • MARC FISHER LTD Wanya Boot: Haute Hiking Boot Fabness. Chunky yet refined. Moderately comfortable. Read the rave reviews.
  • Blundstone Footwear ‘Original Series’ Water Resistant Chelsea Boot: A robust “paddock” bootie for woodsy walks and the like. Great for higher volume feet. Very comfy.
  • Earth ‘Amber’ Buckle Bootie: More of a shootie or caged pump, and good for those who want to wear pumps in a less delicate and dressy way. Good for higher volume feet. Comfy.
  • Linea Paolo ‘Felicia’ Wedge Bootie: Sleek Wedged Sneaker Fabness. Read the rave reviews.
  • Sudini ‘Fabiana’ Tall Boot: Best on Team Tall with medium width calves. Sleek, dressy, and casually refined. Well made, classic and weatherproof.
  • L’Amour Des Pieds Pirisa Bootie: Fab shootie for wider feet that need support and cushioning footbeds. Works with smaller bunions.
  • Free People Emerald City Bootie: Tailored, unique and moderately comfortable. Works for a high instep and regular width foot. Good on a narrower ankle.
  • Ara ‘Patty’ Block Heel Boot: Clean and classic. Fably discreet and crisp under full length straight legs. The elastic inserts add loads of comfort.
  • Børn ‘Cross’ Bootie: RATE (Rough Around The Edges) Boho meets Action Cowgirl and is as comfy as can be. Read the rave reviews.
  • Eric Michael Lena: Wedged, adorable and more comfy than expected. Sleek on the foot despite the buckle detailing. CASUAL.
  • Munro Alfie Bootie: The ankle ruching is an adorable detail, and streamlines the fit on the leg. Extremely comfy. Higher volume feet should order a wide size. Fab with dresses and skirts.
