Today, instead of posting a DIY tutorial, I am posting a review on one of my favourite Canadian designers.

I first heard about Melissa Nepton from Toronto Fashion Week, and quickly grew to love her modern take on the career woman’s clothing.  I was lucky enough to get the Spring 2015 Collection early, and was actually giddy checking out each item that I pulled from the box.

Her designs are refreshing, exciting, and the best part is, they aren’t skintight (which is especially good if you’re going out for dinner. NO ONE wants to wear a tight dress while trying to enjoy a 4-course meal.  I want to eat my cheesecake in comfort).

Dress: Bea

Another killer aspect of this collection is that it’s totally universal and can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion.  This comes in handy when you don’t really know what “Business/Casual with a hint of country western, and a side of formal” means on an invite… (Trust me, I’ve seen that actual description. WTF).  Here in the post are some of my favourite looks, and if you want to order yours, go to:
