My Top Picks at Bigley’s Anniversary Sale

bigleys anniversay sale roundup

It’s that time of year again! Bigley Shoes & Clothing is currently having their 106th Anniversary Sale! Almost everything is on sale, going up to 50% OFF storewide! I’ve put together a round-up of some of my favourite items. Most of these pieces I already have, however the ones that I don’t have I’ll definitely be purchasing while they’re on sale. Also, check out the site to find some other sweet deals! Birkenstocks are currently 10% off, and they VERY rarely go on sale, so if you’re in need of some Birks for summer, I recommend buying them now.

  1. RELIC- Callie Pineapple Applique Double Shoulder Bag- 10% OFF: I absolutely love this bag. Relic is the same designer as Fossil, however Relic handbags are much more affordable then a typical Fossil handbag. Plus Relic bags are currently 10% OFF, making it only $73.80. I think this is such a statement piece, and perfect for summer!
  2. SPIRITUAL GANGSTER- Good Vibes Arch Sweatpants- 10% OFF: I’m all about a good pair of comfy sweat pants, and I love the message on these Spiritual Gangster ones. They’re super soft, and perfect for a lazy Sunday. Spiritual Gangster is a fairly new brand for Bigley’s, but so far it’s had a very good reaction.
  3. DEX- Montana Shorts- 10% OFF: These high rise Dex shorts will definitely be a go-to for me this summer. They’re currently 10% OFF, making them only $53.10! I love the detail in them.
  4. MICHAEL KORS- Geri Leather Slide- 25% OFF: These shoes have literally been my go-to shoes all spring! They’re currently my favourite shoes by far. I love them because they’re so easy to just slide on and pair with so many different looks. I’m even wearing them in my last blog post. They’re 25% OFF right now, making them around $130. I HIGHLY recommend them.
  5. SAM EDELMAN- Henne Bow Slide- 10% OFF: I recently purchased these last week, as I’ve been eyeing them for quite some time. I think they’re such a cute statement sandal for summer.
  6. DOLCE VITA- Effie Heels- 10% OFF: I’ve seen multiple fashion bloggers wearing these shoes this season, and for good reason– they’re SO comfortable! The leather is so soft that even you’re first couple times wearing them, you won’t get any blisters. The heel is also very easy to walk in.
  7. DEX- Phoenix Relaxed Crop Jeans- 10% OFF: These are a staple piece for me this spring/summer. They’re also only $80.10! And if you buy a second pair of pants (any pants in the store), you receive 50% OFF the second pair. However, that offer is only applicable in store.
  8. EBERJEY- Margarita Bikini- 10% OFF: Eberjey is a new brand that Bigley’s just picked up this season. All Eberjey suits are so soft and comfortable. I also love how their styles are so sweet and chic.
  9. CUPCAKES & CASHMERE- Brynn Eyelet Romper- 10% OFF: Once again, I’ve recently seen a lot of fashion bloggers wearing this romper. It’s such an easy piece to throw on, and instantly look stylish. This is one of those pieces that you can literally wear anywhere. You can throw on some cute sandals and wear it out shopping with the girls, or you can spice it up with a pair of wedges and some accessories and wear it somewhere a little more formal.
  10. HUNTER- Original Tall Gloss- 25% OFF: I absolutely love the colour of these Hunters. They’re also 25% OFF, which rarely happens. However, there are only a couple of sizes left, so act now if you’re interested!
  11. CUPCAKES & CASHMERE- Emanual Top- 10% OFF: I own this top and I love it. It’s the perfect fun and flirty top for summer, to go with a pair of jean shorts or white capris. It’s also under $100.
  12. FOXY ORIGINALS- Flamingo Earrings- 10% OFF: How cute are these earrings!? They also come in silver, and there’s really cute palm tree ones as well. Such a cute gift idea. I’m getting married soon and my wedding is going to be very tropical as we’re having it in South Florida. I thought these would be such a cute gift for my bridesmaids. They’re also only $27.00 right now! Such a steal!

The Perfect Little Blue & White Dress

IMG_0667As you all know I get 90% of my wardrobe from Bigley Shoes & Clothing. Part of me actually feels a little guilty when I shop else wear, considering Bigleys is our family biz. But in all reality, I have absolutely no problem with this considering Bigleys pretty much has everything I could ever want. Especially at the beginning of a new season. I actually have to control myself because I literally want everything in the store right now!

I’ve been eyeing this adorable Parker dress for quite some time, so today I decided to do a little photoshoot in it to see if I REALLY loved it. And of course, I DID! I love how the ruffles make it so unique and stylish. The ruffle trend is also super ‘in’ right now. On top of that, you can never go wrong with a blue and white colour combo. It’s classic.

When I buy something I always think about how much use I’m going to get out of it, and where I can wear it to. I can think of a million places to wear this dress. It’s so easy to dress up or down. From brunching with the girls to going to a summer wedding, it’s completely versatile.

Although the price point is a little on the higher side, it’s an investment piece that I can wear for years to come. Not only during the spring and summer seasons here in Canada, it’s a perfect go-to dress for winter vacays down south!

Favourite Spring Shoes

IMG_8641

Every girl has their “thing” when it comes to fashion and beauty. Whether it’s make-up, purses, active wear, shoes, sunglasses, clothes or even bathing suits. In my case, I love it all. I’m basically the biggest “girly girl” (if you will) that you can possibly be. However, purses, make-up and SHOES are my top obsessions. Especially shoes. If you know me personally, you probably know that my love for shoes was developed at a very young age. My mom has owned a shoe store since the day I was born. When she had to work late nights when I was youngster, I would be in there with her roaming around the store, trying on shoes. Over the years I learned what time of the year new shoes would be arriving and I would look forward to getting in there to scope out my favourites. I’m now 25 and I still look forward to every seasons new shoe arrivals. So I decided to show you guys my top picks for this spring.

You’ll notice I’m all about the sneakers this spring. Sneakers used to be considered very casual, something you would throw on when you were going out for a walk. But they’ve now turned into a fashion statement. You can wear them with spring dresses, light trench coats, or use them to spice up some ripped denim jeans. Almost every major designer has incorporated sneakers into their line this season. From runway to casual wear, sneakers are where it’s at.

Here are a few of my favourite spring shoes:

adidas

ADIDAS- ORIGINAL STAN SMITH SHOES

I absolutely LOVE these sneakers. I’m all about the Adidas this year. I love how they make an outfit look so crisp and fresh. Especially this pair, considering they’re all white with a splash of gold on the back. I will definitely be rocking these this spring/summer!

white slides

MICHAEL KORS- GERI LEATHER SLIDE 

These MK slip-ons have become my new “go-to” shoe. They’re so easy to throw on, and they go with almost every outfit. I love how they instantly make your outfit look more fashionable.

mk blush

MICHAEL KORS- KEATON FLORAL PERFORATED SLIP-ON SNEAKERS

If you haven’t already noticed, blush is a HUGE trend this season. I posted this picture up on Bigley’s social media and we instantly had to order another case of these sneakers because they were such a hit. They’re so chic!

kenneth cole

KENNETH COLE- JULIAN TASSEL LOAFER

I love these Kenneth Cole loafers. The quality feels amazing, and I love the tassel detail. They also come in a bright orange. They’re nice and light for summer. They’re a nautical dream!

tosca blu

TOSCA BLU- S/C GINTONIC

Ummm HELLO! I almost died when I saw these sneakers. They’re literally one-of-a-kind. They make such a statement. You can dress totally casually, or really glam, and rock these with either look.

steve madden

STEVE MADDEN- MAPLE

I love the heel on this shoe. They’re so easy to walk in. The stretchy back also makes them very easy to put on. Although they take some working in, they’re a great affordable sandal for spring.

adidas original

ADIDAS- SUPERSTAR SHOES

You can’t get wrong with the original Adidas sneakers. I wear mine constantly. I love pairing them with ripped jeans/shorts, long trench coats, or jeans and an over sized sweater. They’re super easy to throw on, and they’ve definitely become a fashion statement in this past year.

IMG_8641

MICHAEL KORS- SKYLAR LEATHER AND KNIT SNEAKER

These blush sneakers are everything! They’re extremely comfortable and stretchy. And once again, blush is definitely a trending colour for spring.

Chambray the right way!

FullSizeRender_9_large

I recently did this photoshoot with one of our models from Bigley’s, to depict one of this seasons most prominent trends- chambray!

The early days of spring are some of the most unpredictable when it comes to the weather forecast- and thus your outfits can be equally unpredictable. It’s all too common for the temps to rise to 20s one day and plummet to 5 the next. For this reason, having an arsenal of items in your closet that will layer easily, keep you warm or cool you off when needed, and can be dressed up or down is of utmost sartorial importance.If you’re stumped over what to wear this transitional time, we suggest starting with chambray.

The reason being that chambray usually has some weight to it, making it a better transitional option then a lightweight oxford. Roll up the sleeves on warmer days, and layer under a sweater when it’s cooler.

All items are linked below, and all item qualify for free shipping this weekend only! : )

Make room in your closet, because this is a deal that you definitely don’t want to pass up! Bigley’s is offering 50% OFF all handbags from their winter stock, this weekend only! This includes major designers such as Fossil, Mackage, and Vince Camuto. Don’t get me wrong, Bigley’s provides some pretty unreal sales, but this one doesn’t happen very often. In fact, I don’t think this has ever happened!

I’ve put together a round-up of a few bags that I personally would love to have. Most of them are available on bigleyshoes.com (I’ve inserted links). However, if their not online their available in store, which is open from 9am-6pm.

Trust me when I say this NEVER happens! Therefore, if you’re in search of a new handbag I definitely recommend taking advantage of this insane deal!

Happy New Year!

 

img_3456

Happy New Year! I hope everyone is having a great start to 2017!

These past few months I’ve been working at Bigley Shoes and Clothing (our family business), as the Assistant Marketing Director. My job has primarily involved working on our online store, running our social media accounts, hiring models and styling photoshoots, and developing marketing concepts. I have really been enjoying it, and I look forward to continue growing the online store.

One of my new years resolutions is to become more active on Dolly’s Dressing Room. However, I’ve decided to slightly change the content. Considering that I’m now taking the photos as oppose to modelling for the photos, I’m going to be posting and writing about the photoshoots that I do for Bigley’s. I’m very excited to show you guys my work, and I think that you will really enjoy it!

However, I will still throw in some posts about my personal life as well. That being said, I’ve added some pictures from my recent vacation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. My parents have a boat down there, so my entire family went down for New Years, and we all stayed on the boat. I went for Christmas as well and spent a few days at The Westin Beach Resort with my boyfriend. He’s in the US Army, and currently still in AIT training, so we don’t get to see each other a whole lot. That being said, it was AMAZING to spend a full 10 days together! We spent the majority of our time relaxing, hanging out at the beach, and spending time with family.

Outfit Post: Michael Kors Vest & Booties

img_0158

It’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post, but now that fall fashion is in full effect I figured I better get cracking! If you haven’t checked out Bigley Shoes and Clothing new fall arrivals, I HIGHLY suggest that you do! Even if you don’t live in the Kawartha Lakes area, check out their online store. Their new arrivals are seriously drop dead gorgeous, I literally can’t get enough.

img_0187

This vest is by Michael Kors and has literally been flying out the door. In fact, there is only one left in stock and it’s a size Large. However, if you’re interested in purchasing this vest, please shoot me an e-mail, and if we get enough requests we may restock. It costs $195.00, and is honestly worth every penny. It’s the perfect statement piece for fall and winter and is nice and cozy. When it comes to washing, you have the option of hand washing it and laying flat to dry or dry cleaning.

These leather booties have become my absolute favourite booties for fall. They are also by Michael Kors, and are so extremely comfortable! I love the charcoal colour because I feel like it’s not a colour that you see on a regular basis. And I love how the lighter hue really adds an extra pop to the bottom half of an outfit. These are available online and in store and will definitely be a bootie that you will have for the long haul.

This hat is by Delux and has always been a “go-to” for me. It can add class and sass to a variety of different outfit styles. And it can also make those bad hair days go un-noticed (Shhh!). This one accessory can truly “make” an outfit, even if its simply a sweater and jeans. Again, definitely worth the purchase.
