Day 8

A little bit Country

This look is inspired by the DIOR resort show. Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director at Dior, is one of my favourite designers. I have admired her work at Valentino and I am loving what she’s doing at Dior.

Style Breakdown

This navy window pane dress is a classic shift dress. I like the unexpectedness of the bias cut back. This dusty grey jacket pairs well with it because it too has back detailing with the navy and grey check pattern. For me it’s the Coach boots that really tie this look together and make it a little bit country.

Look Good Feel Better

Last week I attended a LGFB session and it was a great experience. I met the most wonderful ladies – patients and volunteers – and learned some great make-up tricks. What I found most interesting and jarring was how at risk women going through chemo are to infection and how vigilant they need to be with their skincare and make-up routines. It made me realize how important this program is and it’s why I’m spreading the word about it to all women going through cancer treatment. It was great to see the cosmetic companies that donated products. The loot bag rocked! My favourite thing was the MAC eyeliner in tarnish. It’s a great colour for me. The session was held in Princess Margaret on the 3rd floor where there is a wig salon and hat shop. I scored the Lady Gaga dusty rose hat I’m wearing that is the perfect compliment to this little bit country outfit I’m wearing today.

Big thank you to Marilyn, Christine, Karen, Sherry, Peggy and her sister  (and the lovely Asian woman who’s name I forgot – Sorry) for making it a memorable afternoon. Please, if you can, donate to this program and the wonderful support they give to women. They truly empower me to FIGHT CANCER WITH STYLE!
