#StandTogether Against Bullying!

#StandTogether Against Bullying! | www.styledomination.com

I think we have all been bullied or been affected by bullying at some point in our lives and it sucks. I remember as a teenager being bullied over the course of my grade 12 year and it left me feeling alone, anxious and downright scared at times. Each child deserves the chance to grow and flourish, despite their perceived differences. Continue reading #StandTogether Against Bullying!

How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe

Over the past few weeks, I have cleared out my closet of pieces I no longer use or no longer fit. While I do this annually, this particular clear-out was an emotionally charged one. I had a few of my designer bags stolen late last year and every time I look at the empty space in my closet where they should be, I’m reminded of that painful experience.  Continue reading How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe

The only haute couture piece in my closet is my Justina McCaffrey wedding dress. A treasured piece (obviously), I pull it out every now and then and marvel at its beauty and construction. Made to measure, it fit perfectly. I remember the ladies at Justina McCaffrey dismissing me politely when I asked if my undergarments would show at all underneath the fine silk. “This is haute couture, my dear. No need for strapless bras. The boning and fine corsetry is made to measure. It will hold you in beautifully.” Continue reading Haute Couture Luxury at Fashion Art Toronto

#FeatureFriday: Julianne Buchholz, Haute Couture Fashion Designer

I love haute couture. It’s fashion at its finest…true art. From Alexander McQueen to Dior, haute couture has proven to be an art form so beautiful and unique, that I often look at these creations in wonder while marvelling “How did they do that?” and “I’ve never seen fabric so beautiful!”
