I was invited to chat with the mall’s Marketing Director, Jennifer Kleinberg, to be a part of their ‘Get Gorgeous’ blogger video series. To say I was excited is an understatement, so naturally, I jumped on the opportunity. With a wide range of stores and fantastic staff, Upper Canada Mall is one of my favourite malls and I was humbled that they wanted to work with me.
The entire experience of shopping with the Upper Canada Mall team was amazing. We walked the mall, scouting out some of the season’s best clothing and accessories, filming along the way. It was pretty surreal to be followed through the mall by a camera, and of course, I loved every minute of it.
The focus of this month’s video is accessories. As you already know, my love for accessories runs strong, so the topic was perfect for me. After all, I’m always talking about how important accessories are to not only create a gorgeous outfit, but also to add a personal “spin” to any look.
In Upper Canada Mall’s latest issue of Gorgeous magazine, it’s easy to recognize that all of the outfits are pulled together with fabulous accessories. The individual pieces of clothing they feature showcase certain themes (ex: military chic, summer whites, boho), but the accessories help to bring everything together.
As we chatted about in the video, an outfit is like a “blank canvas” and accessories are your media. It’s by adding accessories that anyone can take a simple dress, sweater, or pair of jeans and style them in completely different ways.
For the video, I chose a really cute, simple chambray dress from Banana Republic and styled it three different ways through the accessories I paired with it. The options are endless and you can mix and match to make the look your own.
Many thanks to Upper Canada Mall for partnering with me on this post.
Which look is your favourite?
