This year marks a special time in Canada’s history. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Canada is turning 150 years old…and our beautiful country’s festivities are already in full swing.

Whether you are celebrating at an amazing restaurant like Fratelli’s Kanata or attending one of the fabulous galas this season, NOW is the perfect time to UP your style game. I have teamed up with Rent Frock Repeat, a wonderfully Canadian company, to give you some style inspiration when selecting your perfect outfit.

Your Cinderella Moment

What girl doesn’t want to feel like she will meet her prince in this gown?

This amazing Royal Blue Sequin Ball Gown by David Meister is not only a head-turner, it combines elements that will make any woman’s body shape look incredible. The a-line skirt is very forgiving, turning your body into the hourglass shape that is so desirable. And so many women will appreciate the cap sleeves and high neckline on this dress.

But the real features in this piece? The middle slit and the head-to-toe SPARKLE! Glamour at it’s best.

Modern Shapes

If you are that girl who loves to get dressed up and also loves trying new trends, this Theia Silver Brocade Gown is for you. So on point with the off-the-shoulder style, and its clean lines and embossed fabric created an effortless elegance.

The fabric on this dress is simply amazing – very subtle floral pattern and silver thread throughout is such a refreshing change from your typical black gown.

I can also picture this gown used for bridesmaid’s and your non-traditional bride…can’t you?

Not a Wall Flower

You are not someone who likes to blend in. You’re also not someone whose closet is made up of black, and neutral. If you are a girl who loves colour and loves to make an entrance, this Lime Kimono Silk Chiffon Gown by Jay Godfrey is for you.

The silk chiffon fabric on this dress is so light and airy, yet so opulent. I absolutely love the adjustable belt that creates a beautiful silhouette, yet allows the dress to flow so freely as you move.

And while most of you right now are saying “yellow” is so not my colour (actually, the colour is chartreuse but I’ll forgive it this time), I would argue that it’s worth a try before ruling it out. This colour also pairs so nicely with pink and purple hues…think of the make-up and accessory options!

What ever your style this 150th year, I hope you feel amazing in your Rent frock Repeat dress. Follow me Instagram to get 15% of your next dress!
