What To Wear, What To Wear

by - Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Are you ready for the holidays? I sure am. I love everything this season entails - parties, good food, getting together with friends and family, and dressing up. And lucky me, I get to kick off the season with many of you this Saturday at the Canadian Design Bloggers Meetup!


As one of the organizers, I am excited to have you attendees enjoy yourselves at this little party that we have put together. But what to wear??? I admit, most days, I dress like a "mom" (minus the mom jeans, lol). Well, for me, figuring out the outfit means a trip to the grocery store. Yup, you heard that right. For you non-Canadians, you're probably not familiar with this hidden gem we have called Joe Fresh, a line of clothing that is sold in Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstores. Created by Joe Mimran, who also created Club Monaco and Caban, Joe Fresh features stylish basics at very reasonable prices. They are my go-to shop for kid's clothes (seriously, kids grow so fast that I don't want to spend a lot of money on their clothes!) and for when I need an inexpensive little basic for an outfit.

Here's a few of their holiday looks:


Maybe all I need is a cute sweater to put over a dress I already have...


I've worked from home for the last six months and was on maternity leave for the year before that, so you can imagine how un-stylish my wardrobe is, lol. Thank goodness for Joe. Now if we could only get a Target in Canada, my everyday wardrobe would be all set :)

Tell me, what do you wear when you want to feel a little bit pretty?

  2. OMG that is so me! I think that about 80% of my wardrobe is Joe Fresh! They are the perfect mom clothes... inexpensive, replaceable often, but still stylish (except for one pair of light grey jeggings that I just should have said 'no' to!)

  3. Do you know I've never been to a Superstore? The girls at my work are always talking about it. I need to check one out! Loving the Joe Fresh style and I would totally be into a Target here in Canada.

    Looking forward to Saturday!

  8. BTW, the "Thing" to do when you get your JF ensemble together, PAY for it with PC reward points! Then, take a pic and Tweet it to Them! Mention the Meeting... ;-D

    Wish I could be there too... But, have my big Craft Sale to do! -- Anyway, WHATever you wear, I'm sure you'll look FAB! And, good luck with the whole Event!

  9. Love love love Joe Fresh. I tried on that plaid dress but it did not look as cute on me as it did on the model! I did pick up the gray tulip skirt though and wore it my first day back to school!

    I feel pretty in anything flowery or ruffly these days. And bows. I love bows.

  11. My go-to item this time of the year is usually a great coloured/patterned scarf over a basic long-sleeve tee. This keeps the shopping to a minimum :)

    I DO know Joe! My bestest neighbors who moved away from me and back to Nova Scotia (the wife/mom was from there) dressed their little ones in all things Joe. We even inherited a bunch of their handmedowns before they left. I need to remember to check out their website. And to go up to Vancouver more often!

  16. Connie - you must visit Joe! Be warned, their clothes are highly addictive. See you Saturday!

    Sharon - we'll just have to have another meetup then so you can attend ;)

    Auntie Shan - wish you could be there too!

    Morgan - I will definitely be wearing some ruffles. I think.

    jbhat - Vancouver actually has a free-standing Joe store! Worth a trip, maybe?

    Emilija - I think I buy more clothes now because its so convenient, lol. See you Saturday!

    Sara - I NEED more sparkles in my wardrobe. Back to Joe, lol.

  17. I'm right with you there Jennifer! I am borrowing a tank top from one sister and shoes from another sister for Saturday! It's pretty pathetic.

  18. Those outfits are so gorgeous. I think my family would love to wear all those amazing outfits. The color is just so perfect and it looks so comfortable to wear.

    I so wish I still had access to Joe! I have moved to Paris, and yes I still love the Joe Fresh Style! I'm an at home Mom and find that JFS makes a cool Mom wardrobe accessible to a one-salary household!
    I can't wait 'til my next trip to Montreal so I can go shopping!

  20. Sad I am not coming as well, but a flight from Vancouver to TO is pricey! I agree a Target in Canada would be REALLY nice:)

    I find the Joe Fresh stuff is so pretty to look at but being tall {5' 9"}, they don't fit well :(
