Aritzia off the shoulder white top, Aritzia grey wool coat, Mavi skinny jeans, Marc Jacobs olive green bag, Urban Outfitters suede ankle boots, Aritzia grey wool fedora, Cluse gold mesh watch and Celine sunglasses - how to style off the shoulder topsI’ve talked a lot about doing closet cleanses in the past but for whatever reason, I’ve never shared what happens with the clothes and pieces once they’re gone. Looking back now I realize it’s such an important thing to highlight! It’s really important for me to donate as much as possible, so almost all my clothes go to really incredible organizations that help those in need. One of my absolute favourite organizations is Dress For Success, which is an incredible global non-profit that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing them with work attire, career services and skill development.

However, providing someone with the tools to help them succeed and be self-sufficient is the most amazing thing to support, especially for other women.

It’s called Success…is in the Bag—every donated high-end designer handbag will be sold in an online auction with all proceeds going towards supporting the good work Dress For Success does for women in need across Canada. The program will also lead up to International Women’s Day on March 8 to encourage others to donate and help local women.

It makes me so happy to think it will go to such a great cause, and it’s given me a chance to style it up one more time! Bye dear friend!
