You might have seen these pictures via Instagram if you follow me on @delectablychic, but these are some recent purchases/rentals from Canadian designers.  I’m trying to wear more Canadian to support our fashion community!

Petite Fashion Challenge #21: The Fascinator

Considering how I’m always about being “proper” and “lady-like,” I’m actually not much of a headpiece kind of girl.  Therefore, this Petite Fashion Challenge, hosted by KTR Style, was definitely a challenge for me.  I do have a few pieces, purchased at shows and other events, but I just never really…wore them.  For this month’s […]

Frocktail Party Dress from Rent frock Repeat

The Frocktail Party, an annual fundraiser and auction for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, was held on November 14 at the Arcadian Lofts, a change in venue from previous years.  As usual, DelectablyChic! went to cover the event.  So what did I wear?  A Tracy Reese dress rented from Rent frock Repeat (you can read […]

World MasterCard Fashion Week: Some Select Outfits I Wore

Wow, what a crazy week!  While I used to try to post my outfits daily DURING the event, I’ve now saved it for the end.  It’s just getting busier and busier for me each season (or maybe I’m just getting older).  I did manage to get at least one photo each day, but not everything […]

Vegan Leather Leggings: Loot from Shop ‘Til You Drop

LouLou Magazine’s Shop ‘Til You Drop, a shopping event similar to Lucky’s LUCKY SHOPS and Fashion’s Night Out was held in Toronto earlier this week.  Though I was still suffering from a cold, I braved the unusually cool weather and went to several events and picked up tights as well as a houndstooth dress (picture […]

Sweater Weather (Plus Help Me Choose Sunglasses)

This week’s IFB Project is to put together one’s best “sweater weather style.”  Well, this isn’t best-best in terms of prettiness, but it’s one of my favourite weekend outfits and a look that I’ve gone with for at least two or three ears – just about as long as I’ve had this cardigan – or […]

Pick your favourite Summer or Fall 2012 trend and make it work for you, whether it’s going all-out, incorporating it into a professional outfit or using it in moderation… I’ve picked three trends: […]

The Ultimate Looks for NYFW and TIFF: An IFB Project

New York Fashion Week starts this coming Thursday, the same day as opening night for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).  Both events are stylish, in cities where constant heel wearing isn’t ideal and involve a lot of celebrity sighting and perhaps even be photographed by others.  And not to mention unpredictable temperatures.  Early September […]

Full Skirts and the Petite

I recently purchased two full skirts, one from Femme de Carriere, a Montreal-based clothing store with office-friendly clothing (both casual and formal) and another from a Kate Spade outlet in Niagara Falls, New York.  Some people think that  these skirts can overwhelm a petite frame, but it really depends on the style (e.g. how much […]

BCBG Dress for a Bat Mitzvah

This weekend, my husband and I drove down to Rochester, NY to attend his cousin’s Bat Mitzvah.  Though we’ve been married for nearly two years and together for close to seven, this was my  first bat mitzvah service – I had attended many receptions before.  It was a weekday service at a Reform temple, and […]
