Zooey for the Holidays!

The line is pretty fuzzy for when it’s appropriate to start celebrating the Holidays, isn’t it? But fear not! If Christmas is your thing, whenever you decide to put up that Christmas tree you’ll have a wonderful soundtrack full of holiday cheer to do it to. “A Very She & Him Christmas” is out now, and as both a fan of Zooey Deschanel AND Christmas, I can safely say it’s an absolute delight! It’s puts the perfect new sheen on those classic Christmas tunes, from ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ to an updated version of ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’. For those Christmas lovers like myself (who ideally have their tree up already, Halloween was weeks ago afterall!), I suggest coming home from a day full of shopping, pouring yourself a glass of homemade egg nog, sitting by your beautifully lit tree, and relaxing to the sounds of She & Him. Sugar cookies are optional. Enjoy!

Falling Leaves

Turtlenecks are a big hit this fall and winter, so of course I had to wear this mod mini dress/tunic! I love that it balances out the high neckline with a shorter skirt. For the coolers months ahead, turtlenecks look great under layers, so pile on the vests, cardigans, sweaters, dresses, and mini skirts over top this tunic! While out and about, I felt like I was wearing two outfits because this jacket looks almost like a dress when it’s buttoned up. I absolutely adore the shape!

Revisiting the little black dress

In time for the holiday's....the little black dress never fails. We have shown 10 different ways to wear our LBD. By simply changing your accessories and what you layer over it, will allow you to create endless looks. No wonder it is a timeless classic. Check out your local BELLISSIMA to find the right version of the LBD that will make you look and feel beautiful, polished and confident.

Fall 2011 "MUST HAVE'S" Fashion Show

Women want to look at, read about, shop for and wear great clothes. Fashion shows are events that bring out a women's inner diva.
We just had our 4th semi annual fashion show....held in our Bellissima Lonsdale store last night. Many of the clients that attended expressed to me that they really liked that "real women" modeled the clothes. We used our own staff to show how great everyone can look....regardless of height, body type, age or whatever women feel their area of concern is.
REAL WOMEN ROCK...and someone needs to tell them that!!!
Iit's time to head down to a BELLISSIMA in your area to pick up something new and we will make sure you leave looking and feeling great!
Wishing everyone the best of health and happiness,

The Black Pant

Not just a pair of black pants. For you ladies who work in the corporate environment you know that dressing to work does not need to be a boring task. These black dress pants are amazing! They can easily be worn dressed up or dressed down. Here I decided to wear them when a striped sweater and wedge heels. My favourite part about these pants is the pleats around the pockets. Such a fun detail!
My other favourite part of this outfit is the Anne B. Accessories wood bracelet. Anne Corpuz-Bacalso was one of the emerging designers from Alberta Fashion Week. She won an exclusive deal with Bellissima and has her amazing jewellrey on sale at the Bellissima store in Chinook Center, Calgary. Make sure to stop by the Chinook Center Bellissima location to check out Anne’s jewelry selection! Her pieces are made from all natural products including wood, bone, horn resin, and shell.

I Love a company that partners the ideals and desire to "give back" with beautiful things such as great fashion.

Philanthropy is the desire to improve the lives of others through monetary or physical donations and other charitable actions.

As most of us know October is Breast Cancer awareness month, and Bellissima has been involved as an organization to try and do our part and "give back".

This year a few of our Vancouver stores worked on raising over $3800.00 through silent auctions and a portion of their sales for the day.

We got our customers involved through a calling campaign to invite them to come down and support this fundraiser.....many thanks to all of you.

I would also like to say thank you to all our managers, staff and local merchants that have so generously donated to this cause as well as to our head office for their support.

Wishing everyone all the best for health and happiness

Della Docking,
