The Corporate Edit from The Iconic

I work in an office so I am always shopping for appropriate but easy to wear outfits that represent me and what my style is. Your outfit is the first thing that speaks before you do when you meet someone.  So that makes it especially important to have a carefully curated wardrobe for work.  That is, if you don't have a uniform to go to.  For this post, I've only included dresses, coats and jackets as this is my personal favourite choice but of course, skirts and pants are fantastic go to's if that's what suits your personal style.

These are some of my favourite easy to wear dresses for this season all from The Iconic and under $100!!  It's an easy one stop shop with express delivery so you can have your looks in just a few hours or the very next day.  I personally love dresses because they require less fuss and are super efficient when racing against the clock in the morning. The dresses are easily layered with a coat or jacket and stockings making it temp…

A day to celebrate love

I know "Valentines Day" can mean different things to different people. Some see it as a commercialized costly day, others may see it as a day to feel loved through roses and presents.
Valentines day is celebrated on February 14th every year and usually involves the exchange of cards, gifts, chocolate or flowers with a special person.
The origins of course are long forgotten but began in the 5th century.  Today people attach certain meaning to the day.

On social media I saw many young women lamenting about being a forgotten valentine or professing their love for themselves. Valentines day has grown to become a day where young women in particular place huge emphasis on the presence of a romantic relationship.  I remember moments during high school where it was so competitive to showcase what and how much you received for Valentines day.  My worth was very much dictated by the relationships I was in.
