3 Things to Consider When Purchasing Knee-High Boots

Shopping Tips


Here in Toronto, we recently got hit with a major arctic blast. Well, ok. It may have just snowed a little and got a bit cold. But it definitely had me pulling out all my boots. And maybe purchasing one (or two) more pairs. Just in case. If you too are on the hunt for another pair of boots and considering purchasing a knee-high style, here are 3 things to consider before you buy:   #1 Ensure that the top of the boot isn’t too close to your knee.

Your Style Challenges Tackled! Day 6: What to Wear When You’re Not Your Ideal Weight

Shopping Tips


Our second last challenge comes from a lovely lady who struggles with what to wear when you’re not your ideal weight, other than tights (or leggings).

And loving it. So what happened? Well, I’d been spending quite a bit of time in hot and sunny Palm Beach (very different to the cold, dreary winter back home in Toronto). While there, bored with the limited wardrobe I packed, I took myself shopping, and found myself inexplicably drawn to colour and pattern.  Was it the influence of my time in Palm Beach? Absolutely. Could it also be my wanting something new and different to wear? Definitely. And while it might seem…
