With the cold weather alert issued in Toronto this week, I decided to shoot this look indoors. The background is not the greatest, but there’s no use in freezing my butt off outside when I have space inside my living room.
The toque has been an obsession of mine; I wear it everywhere and I always get complimented on it. This black veil-toque with a rabbit fur pom pom is from BCBG MAXAZRIA – part of their winter collection last year, it was so popular that they brought it back this winter as well.
This navy and red lumberjack shirt from JCrew is my new favourite shirt. I own so many plaid and gingham shirts, but there is something about this one that always makes me want to wear it. The charcoal grey sweatshirt dress is from Oak+Fort and it is so comfortable to wear. The best part about it is that it has pockets as well – I love dresses with pockets.
The dress has a relaxed, loose fit – it only comes in one size. Because the silhouette of the dress is straight, it will look nice on any body type if worn the right way. For curvier ladies with an X-shape you will have to accent the dress with a belt or a shirt tied around the hip or waist (like I did) to bring out your curves. Otherwise, a straight-cut dress will only make you look frumpy.
These knee-high leather boots are a great accent to this look – they cover up the legs and add a little bit of edge. These boots are flat so you don’t have to think twice about the snow and ice outside and you can wear them for hours.
