Haute Couture Luxury at Fashion Art Toronto

Haute Couture Luxury at Fashion Art Toronto | www.styledomination.com

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

White Out

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the “Meet Your New Jeans With Emily Luciano” event hosted by Topshop Canada and The Hudson’s Bay Company. I hopped at the chance to see Emily Luciano in person, as she is a huge source of fashion inspiration of mine. An Ottawa native, Emily Luciano has grown her Instagram account to a startling 118,000 followers over the course of only one year in addition to a super stylish blog with a readership just as big. Style oozing out of every single one of her pores, I wanted to see this stylish young lady in action. Continue reading White Out

Style Domination’s 2015 Year In Review

Well, 2015 was a banner year for me. After years of waffling, I finally started my Style Domination blog and to my delight, it’s doing really well. What started as a sort of online journal to get my “thoughts down on virtual paper” and to share my day-to-day happenings with my husband who was working in the Philippines at the time, has turned into a bit of an online resource for almost 3,000 followers, averaging thousands of page views a month.  I totally did not expect this and boy…am I grateful.

Come Join Us At The Second Annual Closet Collective Event! November 20th, 5:30pm

I’m going to be frank here. I like to shop. When I say I like to shop, I mean I LOVE to shop. I’m the person waiting outside of the mall on Boxing Day, eagerly awaiting the doors to open at 9:00am.  I’m the girl who can carry 30 shopping bags in each hand  – no problem.  I also think nothing of driving to another city to get that perfect item I can’t find here.  It’s in my DNA. If you cut me, I’d bleed Nordstrom Debut Reward Points. Continue reading Come Join Us At The Second Annual Closet Collective Event! November 20th, 5:30pm

#TRENDING: My Favourite Fall Nail Colours (Hint – The Darker, The Better)

After a summer of non-stop corals, fuchsias, pale pinks and summery blues, I am ready for my beloved dark nail polishes. Since Chanel debuted their fabulous (and my most favourite) Vamp colour back in 1994, dark, moody nails have become commonplace in any fashionista’s nail polish arsenal. Continue reading #TRENDING: My Favourite Fall Nail Colours (Hint – The Darker, The Better)

Wunderkammer Boutique X Tamara Steinborn Jewellery Launch

Last week, I happily attended the Tamara Steinborn Jewellery Launch and Full Moon Celebration at Wunderkammer Boutique, a little gem of a store here in Ottawa on Dalhousie Street.

Wunderkammer (translation: ‘wonder room’) is filled to the brim with enough covetable curiosities to satisfy anyone’s heart. From a beautiful wooden carved whale to clothing and accessories, I could spend hours in the boutique poring over Wunderkammer’s unending offerings.
