“One is never overdressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.” - Karl Lagerfeld
Primal was blessed with height, beauty, and slender limbs. If you have ever seen her model at a Fashion FUNraiser or in-store seminar, you will have noticed her graceful walk and elegant manner. As a lean hourglass she can wear anything but like most women, there are parts of her body that she likes to camouflage.
Multi-purpose key pieces are key at Shepherd’s, so Primal is taking a closer look at the Little Black Dress. “The LBD is a wardrobe staple that can easily be transformed, taking a woman from day to evening with a simple change of accessories. “Today, I was inspired by the stunning Christmas décor in store which is serving as the perfect backdrop for the looks I styled. ”
“This Sympli tank dress is basic in design which is one of the reasons it works for so many shapes, sizes and budgets (only $143!). It features an open neckline, accentuated waist, and a hem that hits just below the knee.
“Wearing a dress over a pant or legging is very on trend, yet it’s a way of dressing I adopted years ago. I love wearing dresses but I feel self-conscious about my ‘skinny legs’. I cover them up as often as I can.” (Editor’s note: We wholeheartedly disagree. Primal has beautiful legs.)
Here, Primal opted for a cozy look with colour to brighten up the LBD.
525 America knit sweater, Echo Designs beret $38, ZZan necklace $130, La Canadienne suede ankle bootie $365 and Cabrelli bag $240.
Sympli is Packably Perfect which is great for the “girl on the go”. Complete the look with the Cabrelli roller-bag (available in a variety of colours and prints) and weightless, impactful jewellery like the ZZan necklace featured above.
This cute, red cross-body bag brightens the mood on any cold winter day. To complete the look, all we need is a cup of hot apple cider or eggnog!
Zenzii bag $52
Ring in the New Year right with a sexy sheer piece from Sympli, complete with soft arm coverage for those who prefer not to show their arms.
“I enjoy sparkle as much as the next girl but today I want to showcase an evening look that is dazzling but doesn’t rely on glitter or shine. This fur neckpiece and long, mocha-coloured pearl necklace are the perfectly refined accessories I was hoping for.”
Sympli Debut duster $143, Sable fur scarf $425, Pearl necklace $54
We wanted to share with you a glimpse into what is coming up in 2015. The maxi dress will be strong and pinks and corals will be aplenty. Here, Primal is modelling a beautiful Joseph Ribkoff number, the perfect piece for all of those (lucky) ladies spending their holidays in warmer climates.
