A Night of Timeless Style: SilverSpoon Dinner 2015

When asked to style 15 live Mannequin Models for Midtown Plaza at the SilverSpoon Dinner this year, I couldn't get my coat on fast enough! I live for fashion, and timeless style is my prerogative. I believe it's important to embrace the trends, but it's also important to incorporate classic silhouettes, rich fabrics and utilize layering of jewelry and accessories to create timeless appeal.

When styling this particular event, I really embraced what the SilverSpoon Dinner embodies: elegance, grace, poise, community, fun, femininity, and beauty. With those descriptions in mind, I knew the looks I wanted to create, and I believe what came together in the end was exactly that.

With the help of fabulous retailers including; RW&Co, Bryan's, Le Chateau, Melanie Lyne and Hudson's Bay, selecting garments with a classic appeal felt almost effortless. Footwear was specially selected from Town Shoes to compliment specific looks from stores where shoes were not available.  Many thanks to all of the retailers involved, also to Angles Salon & Spa for providing the models with hair and makeup as well as Masala Modeling Agency & Talent, and Edge Agency for providing Midtown Plaza with such fabulous Mannequins.

Mannequin Set One: RW& CO.
RW&co. is the perfect blend of feminine classic style. Recently, ELLE magazine designed a beautiful line of ladies dresses in pastel tones, and black and white. A few dresses have a modern take on a classic 50s silhouette while some designs have more of a 60s shift dress shape. Needless to say, these dresses are breathtaking and a very reasonable price point (20% off for a limited time). With wedding and grad season coming up, these dresses would be the perfect fit for the occasion. 

Quilted Satin Dress with Cutout Shoulder $169.90 (20% off)
Rose Printed Scuba Dress $159.90 (20% off)
Miles Fit Blazer in Retro Grid $299.00 (30% off)

Mannequin Set Two: Bryan's
If searching for a dress for that perfect occasion, Bryan's is the place. Bryan's has countless elegant gowns with sparkly details, ball gowns made of tulle, and even dresses for more casual everyday affairs. Bryan's is really a store for the ultimate fashionista! In fact, the Silverspoon Dinner host, Shauna Foster and Kelsey Munroe, Miss Teen Saskatchewan were both outfitted in beautiful dresses from Bryan's for the occasion! Looking good ladies!

Pink Lace Dress $145.00
Navy Dress $130.00

Betsey Johnson Shoes $160.00
Nina Vinnie Shoes $125.00

(Jewelry from Le Chateau)

Mannequin Set Three: Le Chateau
Le Chateau is one of those stores I can spend hours in. If you are every short on time, and looking to be outfitted head to toe, Le Chateau is your store! Not only do they have a fab jewelry section, they have scarves, bags, hats, shoes, belts.. pretty much everything you need to complete an outfit. This store is truly a stylist's dream!

Geo Print Jacquard Pencil Skirt $69.95
Stretch Jacquard Notch Collar Blazer $169.95
Crepe De Chine Lace Trim Camisole $39.95
Double Weave Mao Collar Belted Dress $150.00

Cotton Sateen Contemporary Fit Blazer $175.00
Cotton Sateen Straight Leg Pant $89.95
Leather like bowling bag $59.95

Mannequin Set Four: Melanie Lyne
Jumpsuits are currently all the rage, and when I found a navy Ivanka Trump jumpsuit I could not help myself! Likewise with the gorgeous lace floor length gown, I knew the women at the Silverspoon Dinner would also adore.

Melanie Lyne provides high-end fashions at a moderate price point. Their pieces provide a timeless appeal and the quality will not let you down. The staff is always accommodating and ready to help you look your best!

Adrianna Papell Jacquard floral printed dress $165.00
Ivanka Trump Navy Jumpsuit $145.00
Adrianna Papell Coral Dress $245.00
Gold Floral Clutch $55.00
Gold Clutch $45.00
Scarf $35.00

Mannequin Set Five: Hudson's Bay
A nautical inspiration occurred when styling these three looks. With rich classic hues of red, navy and white a luxurious appeal was born.

Hudson's Bay carries a variety of luxury brands included in this look; Michael Kors, Coach, Ben Sherman, Calvin Klein, and Topman are among the few. When creating a luxurious look, remember simple is alway better. For example, the Ralph Lauren navy and white dress has a basic shape, basic print, but by adding a Michael Kors watch, Coach Heels, and pearl necklace the look becomes much more. I recommend incorporating pops of color, rich browns, and gold touches to create the essence of luxury.
Visit Hudson's Bay in Midtown Plaza for the entire look!

Yours In Style,
