Canadian designers rock!

c-SENTALER-Luxury-Outerwear_-Wrap-Coat-with-Ribbed-Sleeves---Rose-Dust2-2017_largeAs we sit in a heat wave it’s hard to think about fall/winter. But it’s a great time to check out new brands and lines. After all, F/W is the biggest season.

Canadian designers rock when it comes to outerwear. One of my new faves is Sentaler – you may not have heard of them but their designs and workmanship are exquisite.

When Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, visited Canada a couple of years ago, she wore this jacket and sent Sentaler into the stratosphere.

Today this beautiful line offers several styles to suit a range of body types and sizes.

Coats are made from super fine alpaca and wool, making them both luxurious and warm.

There are some beautiful styles for fall, my favourite is this hooded version in blush. So feminine and yet so practical.  Sentaler blush

I’m going to save up to purchase this gorgeous coat, perfect for fall/winter. Many of Sentaler’s designs are on pre-order for delivery in September.

Beautiful. Made in Canada.

Confidence is always in style

What gives women confidence? Power suit? Stilettos…perhaps with a red sole? A statement handbag?

Nope.

Turns out, women are most confident when they wear beautiful intimates. Bras, panties, teddies, all manner of underpinnings.

A new survey conducted by Sears Canada and Maru/Matchbox shows that more than 80 per cent of Canadian women feel that wearing a beautiful bra and panty set plays an important role in helping them feel confident and sexy.

The survey not only delved into the surprising impact our undergarments have on our self-esteem but also explored buying patterns of these bare necessities.

65% of Canadian women feel most confident in a classic black intimate set

48% of Canadian women aged 18-34 have purchased ‘unmentionables’ for a special event (i.e. Valentine’s Day, first date, birthday, vacation, or anniversary)

54% of millennials love lace, saying it is their favourite feature of undies

More than 1 in 3 Canadian women have a “favourite” pair of undies they reserve for special occasions

What’s your go-to confidence-booster? (Or, should I say ‘bustier?”)
