Heading into the weekend I had very little time to get a dress and a few events to go too. I was looking for something that was easy to throw on, casual yet still dressy…and for pete sakes comfortable! I don’t know about you but I get ready at home to go out and I am feeling good…my tight dress is looking swanky, then at some point the inevitable happens…the dress gets smaller, my stomach gets bigger ( most likely my lactose intolerance) and it becomes such a chore sucking in!! I am totally full of appetizers, salad, dinner, desert and throw in a carbonated drink or two and I just don’t look or feel the same as when I walked in the door. I don’t care how skinny you are…I know it happens to you too. Anyway I found this fantastic dress this week at a boutique in Kelowna called Influence. I have to say I am not really a “blush” kind of girl but something about its feminine shape and its girly colour drew me in. I tried it on and I was sold, I felt like such a girl! I wore it out of the store with my jean jacket and black leather flip flops for a lunch meeting. I had a quick turn around time, walked in my door at home and changed my shoes and added a sparkly BCBG clutch and walked back out the door. Gotta love it ladies, day to night and no sucking in. That my friends, is a dress.

Kim was absolutely a dream to work with. I had to find a dress for a New York red carpet film premiere, and she came to my home with amazing options to get the look perfect. She nailed it, and was so kind and supportive! She really made me feel super confident for such an important event, and took the stress off of me for getting the look together!
It was so great to work with her, and I look forward to the next time :)
