Flats for the Office

Good day, fashionable friends!

Most of you get up every morning, don your work-wear essentials, and step out the door to face the day in some version of an office environment. What’s the best thing about working in an office? You guessed it – dressing up a bit.

I often think about my office wardrobe and picture my well pressed pencil skirt paired with a nice nude pump. Sometimes I consider my wide-leg trousers and swoon over the mental image of them accompanied by an adorable platform. Recently though I’ve taken a keen interest in French fashion and I’ve noticed a surprising trend – flats. French women seem to pair flats with everything and it always looks FABULOUS!

Being “vertically challenged”, flats used to give me a great deal of anxiety. I always felt like the executives of my professional halls towered over me; however, inspired by the French, I have recently overcome my fear of being a bit stumpy and I’ve never been happier!

So, friends, let’s take a cue from those fabulous French ladies and appreciate the versatile, stylish flat.

Fashionably yours,

Fab & Frugal Deal of the Day: Wilfred Free VERONIKA Dress

Greetings, fashionable friends!

If you have ever shopped at one of my favorite stores, Aritzia, you have seen the great stock of Wilfred items. Wilfred is an incredibly well-made somewhat high-end brand. When they put something on sale I pay attention.

Aritzia is running a fabulous sale right now with 30% – 70% sale styles. Fortunately for savvy shoppers, that means that great brands like Wilfred are more affordable and now is the time to indulge a bit.

This basic dress by Wilfred is flowy and fun. It can be easily dressed up or down simply by changing shoes. You may need a simple white slip to wear under it but that is something you should have in your fashion arsenal anyway.

Happy shopping!

Fashionably yours,
