12 Days of Curvemas: 9 Snowflakes Falling
I can't believe it's the 9th Day of Curvemas and I'm beginning the holiday collection from the final boutique, Gussied Up+. Until last week, I had never actually had the opportunity to visit Gussied Up, located in the Annex at 1090 Bathurst Street in Toronto. Somehow, I was just never in the area at the right time to visit the store, so all of my browsing (and coveting) was done online.. until now! Last Wednesday, Victoria (the store owner) invited me to the store so I could review some of the pieces from Holiday 2013. We also had time to do a little photoshoot so I could show off my holiday picks to all you wonderful viewers!
I saw this sweater (available here) when I was browsing online and I fell in love. I knew I had to try it on! I actually had an "ugly sweater" Christmas party last Friday with my roommate and I totally would have bought this to wear, had the word "ugly" not been in our theme title! The sweater actually comes in a O/S fits all, which is great for knowing which size you need to order if buying online! However, because I am very busty and tall, the sweater was a tad short on me and I needed to wear a cami underneath. Yet, it was still do-able! I paired the winter sweater with a pair of amazing stretch jeans that are available in store at Gussied Up, and they fit wonderfully. Seriously, I need to go back and snag a pair for myself.
I have to say, if you are planning on buying something from Gussied Up, I would really recommend making the trip to the store so you can have fun trying things on. Plus, I noticed that not everything available in store, is available to purchase online. So, you might just be missing that one awesome piece because you didn't visit the store in person. It's a great little location, check it out!
Also, keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow's look, also from Gussied Up!
