You know us, we love having local support! We’re so excited to have partnered with Ashley Shariece, a local fashion blogger, to showcase her favourite style picks from Queensborough Landing. Her One Stop Shop series will focus on her go-to stores, starting with Banana Republic!
Hey it’s Ashley Shariece!
If you’ve recently started to follow along with my blog, you would have learned by now that I love chai, I traveled to Italy in June, and that my closet mainly consists of the colour black. One other thing to know about me is that when it comes to shopping, I shop where it’s most convenient. That’s where Queensborough Landing Shopping Centre comes in!
One Stop Shop at Queensborough!
I’ve lived in Queensborough, New Westminster my entire life and recently partnered with Queensborough Landing Shopping Centre, which is so exciting for me because this is where I do a ton of my shopping. I love that all of my favourite stores like Banana Republic, Aldo, Garage, Dynamite, and Spring are all a few steps away from one another.
What I Look For
When I’m on the hunt for a new outfit at Queensborough Landing Shopping Centre these are the TWO things that are always on my mind:
1. What’s the MOST comfortable because I’m ALL about comfort
2. What can I dress up or down because I want to get as many wears as possible
The Final Look!
I put together this beautiful, maritime blue outfit from Banana Republic. It consists of their Seersucker Sheath Dress and Button-Side Dolman Blouse. This is a perfect outfit for a day at the office or a night on the town!
When I wear dresses, I usually like to wear something with them like a duster, or in this case, the Dolman Blouse. The collard blouse compliments the blue stripes on the dress perfectly! To complete the look, I’ve paired this outfit with my silver sandals that I featured in my last post. Keeping with the daytime look, I’ve used my leather backpack (a purchase made in Venice, Italy) as a casual purse.
To take this outfit from day to night, I’ve removed the blouse and backpack. The Seersucker Sheath Dress is perfect for a summer night out and can be dressed up with a pair of heels. I’ve traded in the backpack for my blue wallet, which adds a nice pop of colour to the overall look.
Time to Rock this Look!
As I mentioned before, I’m all about convenience and getting the most wears out of my clothing, which I kept in mind when I chose these two items. I can’t wait to wear this blouse with jeans or a skirt for another fresh summer look! This dress is perfect on its own – I know I’ll get lots of wear out of it, too.
