FUNKY FAUX

FOR THE FAUX OF IT

WEDlogo.jpg

This is the perfect time of year, crisp mornings and warmer afternoons let you wear a perfect faux fur bomber from BR in the am and then reveal an even more beautiful printed blouse also from BR  in the pm.

This jacket is fun and funky and surprisingly warm…the perfect fall addition to your wardrobe.

The cropped length keeps it modern and doesn’t overwhelm your frame, especially if you are a petite gal.

This is me freezing my ass off,  jumping up and down…not warm enough to take that cozy jacket off. I have no idea how I am going to survive the winter, I wanna be a snowbird!

I am obsessed with this blouse, it looks and feels so luxe and rich…I have worn it twice this week and I love it with my leather moto vest over it. This print is to die for, I loved it so much I ordered the maxi dress in the same print. I seldom find a piece that I love so much at such a great price…who hoo!

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

HOW TO STYLE VESTS

vests.jpg

Vests are one of my favourite layering pieces (see below);

amydressed-dior-jcrew-streetstyle.jpg        amydressed-chanel-sunglasses-missoni-dress.jpg       amydressed-banana-republic.jpg

I promised a post on vests and here it is…a little late but better than never! I would recommend every woman have multiple vests in their wardrobe.

They add a modern twist to any outfit, something a blazer or jacket just can’t do. Since your arms are not covered with extra bulk, you appear much slimmer and you can see your great blouse or sweater underneath.

Style Tip: A structured vest adds instant shape when worn over a looser dress or sweater, think a leather moto vest over a chiffon dress or a belted puffer vest over a sweater and leggings.

PERFECT FALL OUTFIT

MASTERING LIGHT LAYERING FOR WARM FALL DAYS

WEDlogo.jpg

Okay I know it is Thursday, but I have been a day off all week and today is Wednesday for me…I will be pleasantly surprised when Friday rolls around.

amydressed-fall-fashion-2017.jpg

It is crisp but not cold enough that I need to bundle up, which makes dressing for absolute fashion and not function. But as you can see by my hair, a tad bit windy!

amydressed-fall-layering-vest-blouse.jpg

I layered this beautiful silk sheer blouse that is from the Olivia Palermo Collection from Banana Republic (I also bought this stunning sweater).

I paired the blouse with a dark wash flare jean and leather vest, I think my next post will be on vests and how flattering and versatile they are and I want you all to add at least one to your wardrobe.

amydressed-Banana-Republic.jpg

Style Tip: Have fun with fashion this time of year, thin light layers are the key. You can extend your summer wardrobe by throwing a leather moto jacket over a sleeveless maxi dress or wearing a tissue thin turtleneck under a sleeveless dress. Just be careful of the fabric…no cotton or linen sundresses please!

Happy Wednesday 🙂

FABULOUS FALL BOOTS

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR…

Boot weather has finally arrived and the possibilities are endless! I am going to talk about a variety of my favourite styles and my dream boots, some trendy, some classic and how to wear them.

Peep Toe Booties
These are the best for transitional dressing, show your pretty toes for as long as you can! If you are feeling brave wear them with fun patterned tights all year long.

Over the Knee (OTK) Boots
These have been my go to boots for years, mostly because I am not fond of my legs. Being vertically challenged I like to wear heels but every girl needs a walk for miles boot. For me it has always been the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boot.

Fun Statement Boots
These boots are outfit makers, I plan my entire outfit around these boots. Guaranteed to put a pep in your step.

CASUAL WEEKEND WEAR

ONE OF MY MOST COMMON REQUESTS…

WEDlogo

Well Autumn has arrived…or is it Summer??? Temps here have been insanely hot, warmer than any day during the summer. I actually got to wear my romper this week…yipee. Here is a quick pic of it, it has an adorable monkey print and it was a huge score from the Winner’s clearance section.

amy-deutschmann-romper-jean-jacket-ecco.jpg

One of the most common questions I receive from my clients is, ‘What do I wear on the weekends?’ This is one of my specialities and I love showing my clients how to be totally comfy and still look chic.

amydressed-fila-caoch-citizens.jpg

Here is an outfit I wore to our Fall Fair…it is just a sweatshirt, my fav jeans (last worn here) and sneakers (last worn here). But the polka dot collared shirt and statement earrings add interest and flair.

amydressed-streetstle-distressed-denim.jpg

Style Tip: Mix your casual pieces with some dressier pieces to create a unique modern look. Try wearing a statement earring or necklace with a basic tee and jean combo…throw on a patterned shoe and you will be chic and comfy wherever your weekend takes you.

I hope you will experiment this weekend!

MORE TRANSITIONAL DRESSING

MY NEW OBSESSION WITH BODYSUITS…HEAR ME OUT.

WEDlogo.jpg

This time of year we all struggle a bit with what to wear, the forecast says a warm afternoon but it is downright chilly when we are leaving in the mornings.

amydressed-bcbg-gap-kate-spade.jpg

Style Tip: The key to transitional dressing is you guessed it layering. Choose a thin base layer and add a blazer, cardigan, scarf or all three depending on how cold your day starts…then peel them off one by one as need be.

amydressed-casual-fall-outfit-2017.jpg

Clearly I have something to say, I am probably professing my new fashion obsession…bodysuits! I have been wanting them to come around for years!

amydressed-gap-banana-republic-bcbg.jpg

Bodysuits are perfect for a streamlined silhouette…no tucking, bunching or underwear required. I have a few now and find myself constantly adding them in my rotation.

Here are a few links, give one a try and let me know if you love them as much as I do.
Ballet Back Bodysuit (this is the one I am wearing), Ballet Back Striped Bodysuit, Sleeveless Bodysuit (picture this under a pencil skirt), Floral Off Shoulder Bodysuit, Ponte Scoop Back Bodysuit (the perfect underpinning), Button Down Bodysuit (no tucking required).

Peep toe booties are the perfect transitional item, these are old from Banana Republic…other amazing styles here, here and here.

Have a great Wednesday Fashionistas!
