Did you know that it's been 10 years since Marciano
first opened? It feels like it was just yesterday that I walked into the new Marciano store at my local mall. I can't believe that it's been a full decade since it doesn't really seem like any time has passed since then. It's nice to see that they've stayed true to their aesthetic and haven't strayed from their authentic style in order to adapt to quickly every changing trends.
In true GUESS
and Marciano fashion, they threw a lavish birthday party to celebrate their milestone. I was invited to their 10th anniversary at the newly renovated location in the Eaton Centre (did you know that they moved to a different location in the mall?) and had so much fun meeting other bloggers as well as getting a pair of fake lashes applied. No blogger party is complete without a photobooth, and Marciano did not disappoint. I met up with some friends from UB, and we snapped a couple of photos together before nibbling on the hors d'oeuvres and trying on pieces from their new collection. I know where I'll be at for my NYE outfit in the upcoming weeks!

of photos together before nibbling on the hors d'oeuvres and trying on
pieces from their new collection. I know where I'll be at for my NYE
outfit in the upcoming weeks! And since NYE is already coming up in about 3 weeks, I've already gotten a head start no the outfit which I plan on wearing that night. If you know me, then you'll know that one of my favorite mottos is that "You can never be too prepared.", and that being ahead of time allows me to be thorough.
Now these dresses may not be everyone's cup of tea, but how can I say no to some sequin and glitz? I don't often wear something as flashy as this, and if there ever is an appropriate time, I'd say that it's NYE. If plans happen to materialize, here are some of my picks for the night:
- Anya ($248.00) - Coordinates have been extremely popular this year, and if you've kept to your New Year's resolution of staying fit since 2013, then this dress will be the perfect one to show off your toned and fit abs.
- Tiffany ($228.00) Okay, so maybe your focus wasn't abs. That's okay, we all have different goals. One of mine was to squat at least a plate (hey, I'm fairly petite so a plate is a lot for me). If you'd rather show off your killer pair fo legs, then the striated sequins will pull the focus to the lower half of your body instead.
- Julia ($228.00) - If baring some skin isn't you goal, why not show off your svelt figure in this patterned sequin dress? Plus it keeps in trend with the mesh lower half that exposes a bit of skin without you actually pull of the Angelina Jolie side slit.
Have you picked out an outfit for NYE yet?
