One of the major highlights this year for me was definitely appearing on liveTV for the very first time! It was on The Shopping Channel and it was part of the Style Matters with Jeanne Beker fashion series on October 11th. It was a full on 30 minute fashion talk Q & A while going over looks that models were wearing styled with LAMARQUE. It was such an incredible experience being on the show and I seriously had so much fun doing it. After it was over, I felt this unbelievable high that left me feeling like I couldn’t wait to go back on air and do it all over again! It was such a success for the brand and for me personally since truly, I am in introvert at heart so these kinds of things generally freak me out tbh!
I have to say though, practice really does make perfect. Prior to the show, I had practiced and trained with the amazing team over at TSC which were such great talents seriously! I practiced in front of friends and family and even reading over my notes right up until I had to go get mic’ed. Even though I know my product better than anyone else, I was afraid of blanking out. Walking off the set, I really felt happy with the overall result of my first time on air and it was a major accomplishment for me personally. No doubt there were times during the show that I felt like I didn’t say the right thing or I could’ve worded something better but nothing is perfect in life and we can’t dwell on our shortcomings – we need to move on to the next!
There is something so effortless yet chic of a lightweight knit sweater worn with a pair of leggings and especially in leather – it adds just the right amount of edge. These leggings are from our current KGMTL X LAMARQUE collaboration and they have this incredible waist construction that actual has a thick elastic built in so it literally sucks everything in like a pair of Spanx! I dressed them up with a pair of patent pumps and the DAYA sweater worn off the shoulder. I love the asymmetric angles of this sweater – it’s so elevated and versatile.
Whenever I travel, I always make sure to pack outfits that coordinate easily – especially if I’m bouncing around frequently. On my recent trip to Milan, I brought along my LAMARQUE Harper Moto jacket in luggage. Not only is this longer length so comfortable because it covers my upper hip area, but the colour is just so rich and is so easy to pair. The leather is so soft to the touch and this jacket was made with an action-back detail for optimal comfort. Running off to a business lunch, I paired it with an off white turtleneck and high waist black denim with suede booties.

Definitely one of my favourite items this season is this leather trench coat. It’s so badass and a confidence booster like no other. The sharp shoulders, low slung belt and thin leather all come together beautifully in this ultimate power trench.

I’ve literally rotated this skirt all summer – it’s literally my favorite item in my closet right now even though I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet. It makes me feel so elegant & confident every time I wear it – and it’s been on repeat for real! Good news is that it is on sale along with the rest of the SS18 collection – Happy Shopping!
See how I edged it up with the Onia Oversized Muscle Tank in my post about my recent trip to MEXICO!
Quick 1 week getaway to Mexico for a friend’s wedding! It was so much fun being with friends and having a week to relax! I packed with me only the lightest and easiest to pair pieces that work well together for different combinations. We stayed at the ROYALTON and we were blown away 🙂
Probably the most worn combination of the summer has to be a good pair of denim and a white tee. The AURA tee stands out from the norm with a beautiful blend of jersey and poplin fabric both made from cotton. A little textile 101 here : a jersey is a type of knitting method typically used in your favorite t-shirt while poplin is woven fabric typically used in shirting. The idea was to deliver an elevated basic that you can wear over and over and over again. The fit is looser around the waist for comfort and the added asymmetric ruffle detail takes this top to another level.
I love a good summer knit top – with an off the shoulder look and open back, it’s just light enough. I paired the lightweight LAMARQUE Koemi Knit top with a pair of easy LEVI’s black shorts, a heel to elongate the legs and the perfect ZARA mini raffia minaudiere bag.
