    Finding the Perfect Fit: A Guide to Bras and Bathing Suits for Busty Women

    Finding bras and bikinis has always been challenging for me. I remember in middle school when all the girls got to look at cute padded bras, my only option was something that a grandma would wear. Getting cute bralettes at La Senza girl was not an option for me. It was very frustrating. Department stores were really the only place that I could find something in my size that didn’t have loads of padding. Bathing suits were just as challenging. I would actually wear one-piece bathing suits the majority of the time because they had full coverage (and this was before one-piece bathing suits were cute). Luckily there are way…

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Questions that I am commonly asked about Vancouver, travel, my beauty routine, and where to buy all my essentials. Although I love getting DMs, I thought it may be a useful resource to do a round-up of FAQs just in case some of you are too shy to ask. Of course, I am always happy to elaborate further, and if it didn’t make the list, feel free to send me a message. I am always happy to help, as long as you aren’t trying to get me to join your multi-level marketing business. Where in Vancouver, BC is this swing? Believe it or not, I get this question at least…

    Fall Capsule Wardrobe

    Summer is my jam. I love sundresses and shorts and maxi dresses; I have way too much clothes for the three to four-month stint that I get once a year. Fall on the other hand is not exactly my preferred season to dress for. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love all the pretty colours of the changing season, I love hot coffee on a crisp day and knitted sweaters, but I grimace the first day I have to slither back into my jeans after a long summer of sunkissed skin and short shorts. There is more layering involved and fall clothes are more function than fashion. It…

    Wedding Guest Looks

    It is wedding season. This year we only have one wedding to attend but I have quite a few friends who recently got engaged so I have a feeling that next year is going to be a busy one. I really struggle with wedding guest looks because usually, the “it colour” of the season ends up being the colour of most bridesmaid dresses. It is also an event that is heavily photographed, so choosing a dress that is timeless yet trendy can be difficult to navigate. AND of course the most important rule, avoid white and anything that may photograph as white; steer clear of grey, silver, really pale pinks, you don’t…

    Letting Go of Fast Fashion

    I have really been trying to stay goal oriented for the new year. I went to a spin class today, had a salad for dinner yesterday and I accidentally ordered a new jacket over lunch….oops…in my defence it was on sale! Anyhow, it is very tempting to sink back into the old habits and feel the societal pressure to ‘keep up with the Jones’.  Fast Fashion is something that I want to avoid for the new year. Fast fashion items are mass produced clothing that are cheaply made using cheap materials. They do not last and their production not only contributes to polluting the environment, but it also has a short…

    Fall Fashion for the Work Day and the Weekend

      Fall Fashion 2016 by jaemiesures featuring a shoulder bag backpack   I was living in denial but I finally gave in and embraced the fall weather. I was hoping that if I continued to ignore the change in the weather perhaps it would help to delay the process. Although I am not crazy about the rain, I am excited for a few of the trends that I have seen in the stores. Last year I was obsessed with sweaters, and this year I can’t get enough of the bell sleeve. These are a few items that I picked up as my must haves for the fall season.  Bell sleeves are a trend…

    Sweater Weather

      Sweater Weather by jaemiesures featuring long sleeve sweaters   The weather has been so wet and soggy, sweaters are really the only thing that offer comfort this time of year. Finding the right figure flattering sweater is a challenge, over-sized can look sloppy and chunky knit tends to be just completely unflattering. An additional challenge, is investing in items that are appropriate for the workplace and cute for the weekends as well. I have searched far and wide and found a few styles that I think are versatile and stylish.  Cropped Pullover I love cropped sweaters to wear to work with high-waist skirts and trousers. The are feminine and…

      Holiday Outfits by jaemiesures featuring snowflake christmas ornaments New Years, Christmas parties, family gatherings, there are so many special occasions this time of year to dress up for. Each one requiring a slightly different look. Choosing the right outfit for the right occasion can be a toss-up especially if you are in unfamiliar territory. These are my recommendations for dressing the various events over the holiday season: Work Party Depending on the company, work parties can be hard to dress for. Some companies throw formal gathering and some companies tend to be low key. As boring as it is, the little black dress is perfect for a corporate gathering.…
