This just in, CTV news reporter Desiree Melenka stopped by our boutique to shop and share her favorite items from our newest arrivals. Dez is no stranger to wearing a dress and heels to work, so we decided to add some punchy prints and layers to change up her usual suspects.
Outfit # 1 | Killing it in Camo
Desiree’s first look is built around this amazing camo print dress by Michael Kors. The camo print is small, which makes it more feminine and actually allows her to stand out in a crowd – not blend in. Because camo is typically a masculine print, we made sure to pair it with sophisticated heels and accessorized it with a bold metallic necklace, Beverly Hills inspired sunglasses, and a knockout handbag. The long cardi has a great heathered yarn that also provides dimension and completes the rich fall palette.

Outfit #2 | Leather + Lace ups
Her second look is an ultra-fem, geometric-print dress with edgy accessories. We love this moto zippered vest for fall because it's so versatile. Add it to a tank dress, a long sleeve knit, or a sweater to amp up your look. We tied in black leather for the rest of the look by adding this double-strap satchel by Nine West and Neosens' Gamay lace-up ankle booties with lace inlet detail. Dez loved the stacked accessories look using our beaded bracelets and this long, shark tooth necklace to elevate the look.
