Framework Magazine: The Modern Girl's Guide to Dressing


I'm so excited to share this with all of you - I got to collaborate with two of my favourite ladies (Jen Pistor, who styled and wrote this piece, and Alicia Quan, who shot the spread) on this wonderful Framework Magazine editorial for their stunning, hot-off-the-press holiday issue.

The piece is all about taking an extremely holiday-esque dress (which can sometimes feel intimidating or limiting in the styling-department) and make it work into limitless looks. From cozy cocktails by the fire to a holiday soirée, check out how this stunning Nanette Lepore dress (pulled from Vancouver retailer Wear Else) makes its rounds! Be sure to check out the rest of the beautiful holiday issue too - there are so many wonderful features in it and I could not love the way this Vancouver-based publication represents the many talented female entrepreuners (and their passions) that this city is lucky to have.


Happy Thursday everyone!

  11. This is a really great holiday dress and I love how you made it work for other occasions!! It's to sad to shove a pretty party dress away and wear it once a year. Great looks!!

  21. Congrats on the feature! I love all the different ways you styled this dress. Wearing a skirt over a dress is always a killer way to give it some more life, and I'm loving the fun vest look at the bottom.

  24. This is such a great article. Most of us tend to buy a dress for one occasion and never wear it again. This proves that with the right accessories you can extend the life and use of a beautiful dress.
    By the way you look great.

  25. You look so fantastic here, I almost can't believe that is the same dress in all 3 looks!

  41. You look amazing in all three looks :) I want a sequin dress for the holidays, but find them very intimidating to wear :) I also have this rule where if I buy a new piece, i try to mix it in (at least) three ways with items I already have. Makes it nearly impossible to find a good reason to buy a sparkly dress! x

  44. When evaluating find a christmas gifts like Louis vuitton is alright, will still be worth referring to that will often cheap rolex watches which can be promoted in cut down tremendously charges might be beneath advantageous, catier bangles means you'll need to be without doubt you are acquiring a real waterproof jackets
    rather than a counterfeit. Consequently, you must frequent the best designer's discount gucci handbags outlet where you can make sure that discounted designer handbags won't be low-cost chanel bag online reproductions, plus the better places needs to be offering items of fine quality cheap hermes handbags while on significantly lower rates.
