9 to 5 Revamp

November 11, 2014

 

Fall is here, winter is on its way, and I’m back to my regular routine. I wanted to revamp my 9-5 style with fashionable suiting and chic silhouettes, comfortable yet stylish shoes, and beauty products that make getting ready a breeze – obviously  I visited Cornwall Centre!

SUITING

I walked into RW&CO., the store is stocked with stylish work wear for him and her! As I looked around I found full suiting, but they have so many options to match suit pieces with a stylish blouse, sweater or dress shirt. You can invest in the suit items and wear them in so many different ways. One of my favourite things about shopping at RW&CO. was the eye for detail. Their neck and bow ties, jewelry and bags are so stylish yet sophisticated, easy items to make my day-to-day style pop.

When I went to Le Chateau, I was really impressed with their wide assortment of fits and silhouettes. Ladies can find work pants with a cigarette to flared leg, and men will find skinny and relaxed suiting. I also love that Le Chateau is constantly getting new stock; they definitely have you covered for work wear every season of the year.

For the guys: I ran into Tip Top Tailors to look around for my husband, they carry everything you need for the work week – a huge selection of ties and pocket squares, jackets, suits, sweaters and more. Bonus! They have great sales going on all the time, and a professional on-site tailor.

Note: I found out that items do not need to be purchased at Tip Top Tailors to take advantage of their tailoring service, they will tailor outside garments for men, women, and children!

SHOES

I’ve bought shoes at Le Chateau before to wear to a wedding or out on the town, but I just found out that Le Chateau exclusively carries The Moda Reflex collection - all pairs are under $100, check out the features:

Town Shoes opened at Cornwall Centre in August (high five!)! They have an amazing selection from quality brand name designers like Sam Edelman, Nine West, Calvin Klein, Steve Madden and the Town Shoes collection, it’s an easy choice for me and my hubby.

BEAUTY

I don’t know about you, but I have a terrible habit of pressing the snooze button a couple of times every morning…and it only gets worse when the cold comes. As a result, I’m always looking for tips, tricks and products that get me out the door fast.

Sephora opened at Cornwall Centre in June (another high five!)! On my last trip, I discovered they offer three services to help you revamp your beauty routine:
 
Mini Makeover – Pop into the Beauty Studio and transform your look in just 15 minutes; get tips for a Smokey Eye, Faux Lashes, Flawless Foundation and more. Free in all stores.  
Custom Makeover – Transform your look and learn expert techniques in 45-minutes. Complimentary with a $50 minimum purchase;
Personal Beauty Advisor – This 90-minute consultation includes a Custom Makeover and a personal shopping session. Complimentary with a $125 minimum purchase. 

I didn’t have lots of time, so I opted for the 15-minute mini-makeover and got some tips for an ‘everyday eye’, and I bought the Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette which I’m LOVING (and so are tons of others, the palette has over 10K ‘loves’ on the Sephora website!)

Next time, I think I’ll try the Personal Beauty Advisor service and I’ll call ahead to book (Sephora Cornwall Centre: 306-585-6200).

The Beauty Boutique at Shoppers Drug Mart have amazing, knowledgeable staff to help you find exactly what you are looking for at a wide range of price points. I decided to buy Batiste Dry Shampoo, mascara (you can never go wrong with Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara), and Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in As You Want Victoria for a quick bold lip. The combo is sure to speed up my morning beauty routine.

Now...get to work ;-)
