what I wear – outfit from Yorkdale Mall

Best fashion blog friend ever, Anita of I want – I got surprised me with a trip to Yorkdale Mall this week, where she had the opportunity to style a friend (me!) on the house, with the assistance of the mall’s personal shopping program.

By the way, the Yorkdale Mall personal shopping program is a FREE service, and if you’re like me and you need a little or a lot of guidance to get your shopping done well, its worth a call.

Anita knew exactly what she had in mind for me – I tend to be a dressed-down kind of fashion girl and she wanted to dress me up.  She made me try on about 20 dresses in Club Monaco – the lucky winner ended up being dress #2, a structured, sharp shouldered mini with pockets in silver-patterned jacquard plaid.

She matched it up with these silver Michael by Michael Kors shoes from Capezio.

I did my best to do the look justice with a Jessica Jensen clutch, inexpertly applied blush from Ditzy and seed pearl earrings from Cat’s Cradle.  And I felt very pretty.

We took the look out to the National Post’s Worthy 30 cocktail last night at Hugo Boss, and for once in my life I felt appropriately dressed for the mink mile.  Anita has a real eye for styling, I really felt transformed but still true to my own tastes. Thanks so much Anita, you rock <3

  1. You look gorgeous – as soon as I saw that look, I actually thought “Danielle must have gone shopping with Anita” – it’s definitely an Anita look, but tailored to suit you.

    I’m impressed with the shoes–I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in heels, and you look great!

  2. My, but you do look great! I especially love the shoes. That dress is quite a contrast with some of your usual pieces, but I do think the shoulders and waist suit you wonderfully. And you do look very sweet in your last picture. <3
