Coriander SS’13 :: Look #2

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far.


Continuing on my project for Coriander, here’s the second look that I’ve created. When putting together this outfit, I’d imagined myself at a fab summer resort, enjoying the breeze and beautiful scenery, and having a romantic dinner by the beach with the love one. Totally inspired by the ladies in the Sex and the City huh! LOL



Style: As¬†described by my girl friend as¬†“goddess”, “flowing”, “mod colour palette”, “retro print”, and “Pucci¬†meets Mount Olympus”. Thanks, Jane!

Key items: A maxi dress with the right style for your body figure, scale and height.

Things to look for:

Fit and snug – most long garments can easily make you look shorter. The trick here is to select a style that is well-cut – that means choose a full-length dress that sits snugly to your body figure – especially around the hips and thighs. And not least, around your waist (or below the bust).

The V-shaped neckline – it works wonders in elongating the body figure for those who are petite, and also¬†create¬†a vertical line that makes you look leaner. Who doesn’t like this?!

Details and prints – select prints that are scaled to your body frame- smaller prints for petite and larger prints for plus size. If you’re unsure, go with neutral.

Fabric – avoid too-clingy fabrics that “grab” you in the wrong place. Find one that drapes better on the body and make sure you choose a dress with some flow to it, so that it sway nicely when you move.


Footwear – strappy sandals in a neural and simple style suit the long dress look the best. If you need some height or for a more formal look, open-toe, strappy pumps or wedges is the choice.

Belt – if you have a dress that are loose-fitted and look boxy, adding a belt around your waist (right below your bust or around the thinnest part of your waistline) will make you look 5 lbs lighter. Choosing the right belt will also give a whole new feel to your outfit – making it look well-polished and chic.

Necklace or bracelets – avoid anything too glitzy. Let your maxi dress be the statement!


Isn’t it pretty obvious now why I chose this gorgeous paisley turquoise dress!¬†Ingenue London is by far my favourite fashion label for maxi dresses. All the dresses made is designed to flatter the feminine figure for women of all ages and different styles. It’s elegant and wearable, and most importantly, it’s so comfortable! Love the fabric!!

Hello darlings! Hope you are doing well. Remember I mentioned in my previous post about a project that I can’t wait to share it with you guys? Well, after working on it the last few days, I’m ready to reveal it! (Drum roll, please!) TA DAAAA! My very first collaboration with a local boutique –¬†CORIANDER,¬†a beautiful clothing, home and gift store, located in the heart of downtown Guelph, Ontario.

Coriander has always been my favourite clothing store in this little town where I called home. One of my favourite purchase from Coriander is this¬†beautiful maxi dress¬†from last Spring. They carry the most unique pieces that you can’t find in a mall. I was thrilled when Sarah, the owner of Coriander agreed let me on board with this project, which is to create a¬†Spring/Summer lookbook exclusively for them. I had this light bulb moment when I was browsing through their website and all I see is their super cute and unique home decor and gift items. Then I thought to myself what if I volunteer to help them to showcase their amazing clothing and fashion accessories. So I proposed this idea to my lovely friend, Jane, who is a also a sales associates at Coriander and says she will run it by Sarah. Voila! Here I am with the first look for their Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook.







Style: Feminine, romantic

Key items:¬†Anything that’s soft, delicate and flowy

Thing to look for:¬†Smooth fabric (lightweight and sheer fabrics like chiffon, delicate cottons, lace, satin and silks); soft palette (light hues such as white, cream, nude,¬†lavender, pale yellow and baby blue); delicate patterns and prints (flower petals, little birdies or bows); ruffles, frills and ‘girlie’ trims (bows and ribbons)

Accessories: Refined and whimsical jewelry pieces; delicate vintage pieces like string of pearls; dainty shoes with a little heels


Thank you so much for reading and hope you like this post! Stay tune for look #2. If you live around Guelph, please drop by Coriander and I’m sure you will be surprised by their treasures. If you’re too far away, how about showing some love by checking out their well-designed¬†Coriander’s website¬†and¬†Facebook! See you soon:)
