Get cozy in this Chenille Knit Sweater!

Hi friends!


Another weekend has gone by and I’m still finishing up some last minute shopping, what about the rest of you? Have you completed all your holiday shopping or are you last minute like me?

This weekend I went to a family get together and wore this festive holiday outfit- a red sweater with a textured sleeve detailing which I absolutely love!! I paired the outfit with some sheer black leggings and a black pencil skirt and finished it with black booties. This top can also be worn with high waisted jeans and brown booties. I’ve linked a similar sweater top (this one is a few years old, but also from Garage clothing).

Don’t forget to participate in my current giveaway- the lucky winner will be announced on Tuesday, December 18!

Have a great week and hope you get all of your shopping done! xoxo

Holiday party dress 🌟

Happy Friday loves!


I’m diving right into this post by saying how much I’m gushing over this whisper rose (or rose gold as I call it) dress! It was the perfect piece for my company holiday party (this is the third time that I’ve worn this dress for 2018) and I received tons of compliments on it, so I thought that I’d share it with you all! While this dress is a year old, I found a similar one from the place where I bought the dress featured below. I’m about to spill the store where I shop for my wedding guest dress and it’s been my best kept secret for a while, but I thought since it’s the holidays, why not share it with you girls! 🙂


So here it is- Ever New Melbourne (the Australian store is called Forever New) is one of my FAVOURITE stores, and there’s only one store in the gem of the city of Toronto (the only store is Ontario at the moment!). You can find this store at the Eaton Centre shopping mall, and it features such exquisite, high quality affordable clothing. If any of you are familiar with it, do let me know your thoughts! You’ll find gorgeous staples- from classy coats to stylish accessories to elegant gowns and cocktail dresses- do be sure to check out this store for your next holiday party! You’ll be thanking me after your visit!

Ok, back to the dress- the style is so sophisticated, and the colour is absoltely perfect for a holiday party or even at wedding! My dress size is AUS 6; EUR 34; US 2 for reference (the tag displays all three sizing information which is so helpful to those of us not familiar with Euro or Aus sizes!).

Let me know what you all think of this lovely dress and wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead- for those of you in Toronto, be sure to check out this store at the Eaton Centre while you’re doing your holiday shopping- and it’s now 55% off! 

Btw- for you folks wondering about my handsome date’s suit- he shops for all stylish, fitted suits at Top Man, so send your hubby there for his next formal event shopping!
Bye for now! xoxo

Hi loves!!!

These past few weeks have been super hectic! Life is so crazy right now with holiday party planning to shopping for Christmas gifts to offering my services at my company bake sale- I need a vacation! I think we all tend to have a period where we go non-stop and overcommit to events! Anyhoo, that’s my mini rant. How have you all been? How’s the holiday season treating you so far? I feel like I’ve been MIA and completely disconnected with my blogging world that I’m making the utmost efforts to re-connect with you all again!

Today’s post features one of my favorite sweaters for the season which is a beautiful blush pink V neck sweater with a bow tie at the back! The material is lightweight yet so soft, and the back design is perfect for a sexy date night outfit during this sweater weather season. You can even wear a tank underneath if you want more layers. I decided to pair the outfit with these black ripped jeans and my go to booties and completed the overall look with these beautiful fringe earrings (just make sure that it doesn’t get hooked to your scarf or hat!).

Happy Hump Day everyone!!! Hope you have a fantastic day! xoxo

Fashion- Oh Yellow there! Sweater with Scalloped Detail- Dynamite Clothing

Hello beauties!

Firstly, let me start off my apologizing for being MIA- my parents are in town and I’m been spending every minute of my free time with them (hence my lack of content!), and work has been extremely hectic (I recently went on a trip to California, so I’ll be sharing my travel post soon!).

Secondly, HAPPY FRIDAY to you all!!! I’m sure you all must have been yearning for the weekend, as have I! Friday feels got me feeling so jovial! And what better way to spread happiness than with this fun sweater with scalloped detail! The fit is true to size (I’m wearing a small), and paired with a pair of navy blue pants, this color POPS! It’s such a great color combination, and the scalloped edge at the bottom of the top gives such a unique element to the overall piece! Also- the fabric is super soft, and is PERFECT for these cold days (let me just take this moment to admit that sadly, fall weather is officially over, as Canada has experienced it’s first real snowfall for the season!). See below how I accessorized with beautiful gold dangling earrings- this sweater pairs beautifully with gold accessories, it really brings out the gold and yellow tones!

I’m linking where I got this must have sweater below, so if you’re interested, click the link below!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and stay warm friends! 🙂

Fashion- Well plaid in this Mini Paperbag Skirt

Happy Tuesday loves!!

I hope that everyone has recovered from the weekend and is killing it at work this week! Today’s post covers this beautiful plaid skirt that I LOVE this fall season! The features are so flirty and fun and the plaid pairs perfectly with this grey coat- see photos for the full look 🙂

As the skirt is so short and loose fitting (the waist tie allows for a more rouged look), I thought that a fitted top would pair well, and I chose this long sleeved turtleneck top (size S)- who else loves turtlenecks?? They’re so cozy and keeps you warm all day long!

Let me know what you think of this look! I welcome and encourage your feedback 🙂

And be sure to follow me on Instagram @livinglissy so you never miss a post!

Have a great rest of your week ladies! xoxo

Fashion- Knitted Midi Skirt- Black/White Houndstooth

Hi loves!! Hope your week is going well, we’re almost at the weekend- hang in there! 🙂

I’m sharing a quick post of today’s outfit which follows the theme of this week’s office looks. I’m absolutely loving this black/white houndstooth skirt for the fall season- it’s the perfect length midi-skirt and the colour is neutral for the office. The material allows for some stretch with an elastic fitted band at the top, instead of a zip so it’s super easy to put on with no button/zipper to fumble with!

I paired this skirt with my go to V-neck black long sleeve bodysuit and finished the look with my black Aldo booties and a black belted coat (forgot the name of where I bought it years ago!).

I’m linking the skirt below as it’s my recent purchase, and I’ve linked a similar coat for you all! 

Enjoy! xoxo

Fashion: FALL in love with this look! 🍁 🍂

Hi friends!

Today on the blog, I’m sharing with you another work outfit for this fall season! 

This beautiful Faux Suede Belted Midi Skirt from Forever 21 is available for purchase at less than CA$35! The classic suede material is perfect for autumn and the midi skirt is a very appropriate length for the office, as it fits just below the knee. My favorite feature is the buckle belt- it gives such a rustic country feel to the skirt!

I paired the skirt this white Mock Neck Blouse from Dynamite. The tan colour of the buttons tie in with the skirt so well that it looks like one complete outfit! My favorite element of this top is the design of the side neck buttons, I think it’s so unique!

I completed the look with my tan booties from Aldo, along with this beautiful waterfall coat from Le Chateau- the camel colour of the coat complements the overall outfit and the nude and tan tones are why this outfit is on my 2018 Fall Fashion list!

See links below on where to get the top and skirt!

Have a great day! xoxo
