Midnight Lace

When is lace more appropriate to wear than during the holiday season? We've said it once and we'll say it again, the holidays are for going glam or going home! Maybe don't pull out all the stops at grandma's Christmas dinner and instead, save your stunning lace number for that New Year's Eve party. It's classic, it's pretty, it's 50 kinds of sexy. Just add a dash of sparkle with some jewelry or a chic headband and we're ready to ring in the New Year!

Holiday season = party season and if you're anything like me, you have a stunning sequin number hanging in the back of your closet that never sees the light of day. Well now's the time to whip it out! If you're hesitant to go full sequin, opt for a sweet sweater with a dash of sparkle like Debbie. And a good rule of thumb when accessorizing is to let the outfit do the twinkling by keeping the shiny jewelry and makeup to a minimum.

We're not just decking the halls...we're decking ourselves with a little bit of glam! Happy Holidays!

Christmas holiday gift guide women H&M Forever 21 sweater lancome mascara hypnose headband giftcard leather gloves Aldo
Snowflake Sweater - What better way to get into the spirit than with a classic holiday sweater? Don't be afraid, this isn't your typical tacky, holiday sweater. Make sure to go for something chic and classic like this one from H&M. I'd definitely recommend this for someone in either the Mom or Sister category. $19.95, H&M.

Headbands - Velvet, lace, sequins...headbands can come in all shapes and sizes and ladies, you gotta collect 'em all. Nothing solves a lacklustre do faster than an adorable headband. Bad hair day? What bad hair day? Various prices, Forever 21

Bow Tie Gloves - A chic pair of gloves is one of the best parts about winter. You may be thinking plain black is kind of boring, but throw in a tiny bow tie on the ring finger and swoon! Classy and cute. $20, Aldo

Gift Guide For Him

Christmas is only 8 days away and Bouquet of Frocks decided to put together a helpful little gift guide for the special men in you life whether it be a father, brother or lover. It's crunch time, Frockers, and we got your cheat sheet right here!
Christmas Holiday Men Gift Guide H&M Simons slippers socks polka dots stripes bow ties The Bay Burberry cologne
Slippers: These aren't your grandpa's slippers. They're cool, modern and most importantly, cozy! Just perfect for those cold winter days just lounging on the couch. $50, Simons

Cotton Shirt: Any man with the slightest sense of fashion can never have too many of these button-down shirts. A patterned style is especially chic. What can we say, it's a menswear classic! $17.95, H&M

Cologne Set: Try this Burberry cologne set which includes five of the designer's signature scents. There's a great variety, from sweet to musky, and this is actually the first year Burberry has come out with a mini set. But you gotta hurry, these babies are selling like hot cakes! $42, The Bay

Bow Ties: Ties are cool, but you know what's really chic? A couple of cute bow ties! They aren't just for hipsters, nerds or your 80-year-old grandpa, some men just look better in a bow tie. Trust us. Various prices, Simons

Fun Socks: There aren't always as many ways for men to accessorize as us women. And really it's not fair. You guys are really missing out! But funky socks can really add punch to any outfit. It's basically like having a party on your feet. 2/$6.95, H&M

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Photos by Kyler Kelly

Yet another winter season is upon us and truth be told...I'm kind of excited to pull out my winter gear. (Kind of.) This long, form-fitting number is a great way to add a bit of colour to these winter wonderland days. If you're wondering if I'm cold without the classic Canadian down, the key is layering. Underneath my many wool coats, I'm usually wearing a cozy cardigan for some added warmth!

Just throw on a faux fur infinity scarf (picked up in Hong Kong) and this is basically what I imagine a young, smokin' Mrs. Claus rocked in her heyday.

Jackie's Hair Tutorials: Fishtail Braid

1) Tie a loose side ponytail (it's easier to control your hair that way)
2) Separate the ponytail into two sections
3) Take a small part of the back of one section and pull it over the top of the same section from the outside
4) Join the small section of hair with the other larger section
4) Repeat for both sections of hair, alternating between sections, until you reach the bottom of the ponytail
5) Lastly, move the hair tie from the top of the ponytail to the bottom and secure the braid!

One Person's Junk...

Flea markets are like when imagination and nostalgia have unruly children.

One of my favourite destinations for unique knick-knacks, vintage household items, things you didn't even know you wanted or needed, and yes costume jewelry, is the St-Michel flea market in Montreal. The halls upon halls of kiosks and hidden nooks can be dizzying, and you won't always go home with an amazing haul, but the treasure hunting is half the fun!

P.S. I'm pretty sure this is where Ariel got all those gadgets and gizmos she's singing about...

The First Snow

Well it's that time of year! We've had our first snow and even our second snow and the Canadian deep freeze is settling in. Although temperatures are pretty much unbearable this time of year, Jackie and I still ventured out to take a few photos. The jacket I'm wearing below is perhaps one of my favorites even though I must admit, it isn't quite the warmest. Not to worry, I've found a solution: my little trick for wearing my favourite "not-made-for-Canadian-winters" coats is layering a warm puffy vest underneath. Works like a charm! If any of you have any clever tricks you'd like to share with me on the art of staying toasty while looking cute, please do tell! See ya later, Frockers.
