ALDO A-LIST EVENT with STYLE SAVER x VERLICO

ALDO A-LIST EVENT

By: Justine Barnes

ALDO A-LIST Style Saver

Aldo on Robson Street partnered with The Style Saver and Verlico for an event on Friday, Nov 21st. The exciting atmosphere during the event was infectious.  Guests were treated to colorful drinks, a candy bar and showered with deals on all the merchandise in the store.  In addition, a fashion show showcased chic fall/winter looks to the guests.

The Style Saver is a blog belonging to Elizabeth Manuntag, which she started up when she began thrifting and consignment store shopping in her attempts to save money on fashion.  She partnered with Aldo for this event because she has a history of working for the company and continues to style her outfits with Aldo shoes and Accessories.  A few of her favorite consignment and thrift stores are Hunter and Hare, Mine & Yours, Turnabout and Value Village.  Elizabeth will continue to thrift and consignment shop to encourage a sustainable lifestyle and plans to travel and explore the sustainable culture in other cities, connecting with other bloggers and insiders who have similar passions.  ALDO A-LIST Vancouver Robson Street

PERSONAL SHOPPING with BCBGMAXAZRIA x RANDA SALLOUM – Look 4

Today I bring you LOOK 4 – the last look of my series and collaboration with BCBGMAXAZRIA and Randa Salloum.  And we have saved the most dazzling and super cute booty shaker for last!

If you missed what all the fuss was about this last week, catch up here for Look 1, Look 2, Look 3.  Which look is your favourite ?

This look, perfect to ring in the New Year, was inspired by Yaletown, another one of our favourite stomping grounds.

The dress on its own is a statement piece, but it’s also one that you can push a little further and go OTT with, especially for a New Year’s celebration.  With that said, we added even more sparkle with the blinged-up kitty ears, rock-crystal clutch (to balance out the ears and embellished crop), and textured snake-print/lace ankle booties.  How gorgeous does Randa look – Meeow !

This look, while perfect for many body shapes would work especially well for someone with a straight up and down (ruler) silhouette as the embellished crop layer and the feathered skirt add a little volume, giving the illusion of a more of a nipped in waist.

Randa’s Outfit: Dress / Heels / Headband / Clutch

My Outfit: Jersey TopLeggings / Black Long Sleeve Top / Black Sheer Sleeveless Top / Studded Heels

LOOK 3 – YALETOWN RAZZLE DAZZLE

PERSONAL SHOPPING with BCBGMAXAZRIA x RANDA SALLOUM – LOOK 3

 LOOK 3 of my collaboration with BCBGMAXAZRIA x RANDA SALLOUM brings a completely different vibe today – pure elegance! 

I have to admit, and it’s a tough choice I know, but this may be my favourite look of the series – although you’re in for a treat tomorrow too!  Click on Look 1 and Look 2, if you haven’t see them.

Most of you who know/follow Randa on The Unprecedented, know that she rocks her black, grey and white neutrals like nobody’s business, so having her in a top to toe, Bare Pink tone on tone might come as a lovely surprise – doesn’t she just radiate in this warm colour!

Inspired by our next favourite Vancouver turf, Coal Harbour, we went for plenty of layering, which not only creates interest in a one tone outfit, it also creates a chic, relaxed, sophisticated look.  Despite being completely covered up, the sequenced leggings, strappy heels and slight turn up of the sleeves, showing off Randa’s delicate wrists, ooze the perfect amount of sexy. 

Tone on tone is great for someone wanting to create length and if you’re slightly top heavy, wearing anything shiny on the bottom will always help add a little volume to balance you out on top ;p

Randa’s Outfit: Blouse / Boxy Top / Sequined Leggings / Ring

My Outfit: Jersey TopLeggings / Black Long Sleeve Top / Black Sheer Sleeveless Top / Studded Heels

LOOK 3 – KEEPING IT CLASSY IN COAL HARBOUR

PERSONAL SHOPPING with BCBGMAXAZRIA x RANDA SALLOUM – LOOK 2

 Well, I kinda maybe got the sense that you LOVED Randa Salloum’s Look from yesterday’s post for our collaboration with BCBGMAXZARIA ;p  Click HERE if you missed it!   Today we wet your festive palate a little more with Look 2 with a slightly more glamorous grungy vibe – perfect for our next favourite Vancouver location – Chinatown.

the-unprecedented.ca_Sarah Boland Photography-9104

This look was all about loading up on the textures in a top to toe all black outfit (well, besides for the metallics).  We were instantly drawn to the dazzling emblished sweater top that is fab mix of casual and glam.  Paired up with a beautifully paneled and asymmetrical leather skirt that played off the dimensions of the embellishments, python textured and lace ankle booties, simple jewelry and finished off with a netted touk – what a wicked look!

This look would work particularly well for someone who may feel a little bottom heavy.  By wearing the solid black skirt on the bottom (with its slimming horizontal and diagonal panels) and pairing it up with the embellished top (adding slight volume) would help balance out your silhouette beautifully!

Randa’s Outfit: Embellished Sweatshirt / Leather Skirt / Ankle Bootie / Netted Touk / Pyramid Ring

My Outfit: Jersey TopLeggings / Black Long Sleeve Top / Black Sheer Sleeveless Top / Studded Heels

LOOK 2 – CHINATOWN CHIC

PERSONAL SHOPPING with BCBGMAXAZRIA x RANDA SALLOUM – LOOK 1

 Jumpsuits, dresses, leggings, feathers, sparkles, leather, sequence, accessories, hats & heels – CHECK!

With the pulling done, I give you LOOK 1 of my Personal Shopping collaboration with BCBGMAXAZRIA and Randa Salloum ;p

Today’s look was inspired by Gastown, so something that popped but with a little dose of funk and effortless edge was needed.  It was love at first site with this festive red jumpsuit, which looked absolutely amazing on Randa!  We toughened the look up a teeny bit by adding the textured leather jacket and clutch, fierce pointy heels and playful bowler hat.  By keeping the accessories minimal (totally up Randa’s alley too) and turning up the cuffs of the pants to expose a little more ankle, not only added a little dose of très sexy but also made the outfit more fresh and fashion forward.

This look can take many transformations and is very versatile.  Feel like softening or glamming or softening it up a little?  Switch up your shoes and accessories to metallic tones, hair up with dazzling drop earrings.  If you are wanting to emphasize your waist even more, add a medium size waist belt and voila!  If you’re a little heavier on top, adding a darker coloured blazer or jacket will help create vertical panels on your top half (slimming you down) and bring some balance to your proportions ;p

Randa’s Outfit (click item to shop):  Jumpsuit Jacquard Jacket / High Heels / Clutch / Diamonte Bowler Hat / Cuff / Ring

My Outfit: Jersey TopLeggings / Black Long Sleeve Top / Black Sheer Sleeveless Top / Studded Heels
