HOLIDAY STYLE REPORT: Thanksgiving Dinner

{ GUEST BLOGGER } Shaynee Berg of Shaynee Morgan Berg

October is one of my favorite months of the year; not only because of the falling leaves and crisp autum air, but also because it is the start of the Holiday Season. The start of family dinners, coffees with friends and snuggling by the fire to watch movies. Thanksgiving is the first stepping stone on the Holiday Season path so I figured why not share what I wore to mine this year. I picked a simple grey tweed dress from H&M and paired it with a beautiful pair of burgundy tights from Aldo; the rich color really helps bring in the spirit of fall. This is the kind of outfit you can dress up or down depending on the accessories you chose; for my look I went with some adorable Oxford style heels from Lord & Taylor and of course some beautiful Brooklyn Desgins jewels to pull it all together. I hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving and I will be back with another holiday look soon!

STYLE MOMENT: Mad for Plaid

 { GUEST BLOGGER } Micaela Armstrong

Plaid is huge this fall and for a good reason. No longer is it solely for Canadian Lumberjacks. It’s becoming available in a variety of versatile manners – from scarves and shirts to pants and skirts! If you’re not a fan of the traditional red, fear not. Plaid is available almost everywhere, meaning your colour options are nearly endless!

Personally, I love a plaid flannel shirt. They’re incredibly comfortable and easy to layer as it starts to get a bit colder. Here are a couple of my favourite plaid shirts this season.

Speaking of versatile, I like to pair some plaid with our gorgeous Ellie earrings (especially suitable for fall!) and delicate Leandra Druzy necklace. I find them super easy to style with pretty much any of my fall favourites!

What's your favourite way to wear plaid? Let us know in the comments below!

STYLE MOMENT: Work Ready Jewelry

{ GUEST BLOGGER } Sarah Murray of Fashion Capsule

Office wear can be a complicated thing. A quick glance around the cubicles and you’ll see skirt suits, jeans and sweaters, and dresses. The rules change from office to office and day to day. No matter where you work you can find jewellery from Brooklyn Designs that will make you look like you mean business while still being feminine.

The bank teller- She's got a serious job in a corporate environment and the expectation is for her to look the part in suits and jewellery that mean business like the Cece in blue Chalcedony earrings. When casual Friday comes along her suits switch to jeans and dressy tops and her studs turn into long earrings like the Ellison in Labradorite.  

The waitress- Head to toe black is the usual attire for a server so she has only one choice for showcasing her flair...jewellery. The more the better so layers of necklaces like the Wish in gold and the Bailey and Stevie in green Onyx. 

The fashion journalist- The reporter looks fashion forward when she's out at events. She's probably sporting the latest trend in a unique way and wearing rings like the Jaylin ring. But the rest of the time she is tucked in her home office click clacking away at the key board in sweats and accessories she could have slept in the night before like the Infinity Vermeil Studs and Costello ring

The teacher- Little girls like their teachers in pretty dresses but try running gym class in a pencil skirt and the sportswear trend becomes amazing. A funky sweatshirt, dress pants and fancy earrings like the Liz, makes everyone happy.
