Multi Option Fashion Essentials

If you've got a long shopping list and not a lot of time then here are some inspiring holiday gift ideas.  Multi option pieces will give her several unique looks and you a little more "bang" for your buck. Here are a few of my personal favourites ...

Top E33-6350S     Wrap V9-62500

This piece is actually a long rectangular shaped knit with delicate buttons up and down either side at the hem.  Made of an ultra soft acrylic it's cozy around the neck as a scarf and light enough to be worn as a bolero or shrug. The perfect accent to a simple top and don't even get me started about the vast array of rich colours Bellissima has available!

Top E33-6350S     Vest J19-58673
Top E33-6350S     Vest J19-58673
Now this fabulous number designed by Jaipur can be worn as anything from a vest to a dress!  Add a pin here and a belt there and let your imagination run wild. The subtle heather pattern and warm chocolaty colour works for all skin tones and is a light jersey knit, perfect for travelling, that won't wrinkle.  Making it ideal for that winter get away vacation.  Come visit the Bellissima store nearest you for more excellent gift ideas.

Guest Post: Casar Jacobson

Hi, I'm Casar, and I'm excited to be guest blogging for Bellissima this month. I'm currently living in British Columbia, I am one of the faces behind the Bellissima campaigns, and recently won the title of Miss Canada Globe. For my guest post I thought I would share some of the opportunities that I have been fortunate to participate in lately.

 I recently joined an anti-bullying campaign with a school out of British Columbia. I was introduced to this school while visiting a 13 year old boy by the name of Zack. Zack has mild autism, but is a brilliant boy, and very smart. He currently loves the sciences and Harry Potter. He can memorize things word for word and can recollect dates and situations in a manner most of us cannot.

I recently teamed up with a crew that is helping me towards my acting, singing and public speaking goals. I'm also working with a vocal coach. As well, I received a contract with Canada's Sexiest Girl as a representative on the TV/reality series that will be launched out of Auckland, New Zealand.

In addition, I'm competing in Albania for Miss Globe. I departed on the 25th from Ontario.

See the photos below for more of what I've been working on.

Two Shades of Grey

Maybe you’ve heard....Grey is the new Black. We are seeing a trend now towards Grey. It’s popping up in literature, home decor and of course fashion. And like Black..... Grey seems to work well in complimenting so many other colours. Pink, Red, Blue, Green, Purple, Orange and most other colours allow this neutral colour to do a perfect job of enhancing whatever it surrounds.
 Be sure to head down to a BELLISSIMA to find your “two perfect shades of grey”

grey zig zag print swing coat $225.00 style # 396
Grey and Cream 3/4 sleeve top $110.00 style # 558D6500W
Black skirt $78.00 style# 188N3188
