Guest Post: Leanne

 Hello fellow Miss Melissa readers,

My name is Leanne; I’m a 20 year old recent graduate of the fashion program at John Casablancas in Vancouver.  I was born and raised in Vancouver, later moved to San Diego, California but now I’m back in Vancouver.  I am a regular girl, obsessed with shopping, movies and friends.  I am constantly reading fashion blogs and magazines and keeping up with celebrity style.  I was thrilled when the opportunity came up to write for Miss Melissa, as it is one of my favourite blogs. My dream is to pursue a career in personal styling or wardrobe consulting, while boosting every woman’s confidence. 

With rainy days arriving, fall clothes are making their way into stores.  I am super excited to layer and cozy up in sweaters, boots and jackets.  Here are a few of my fall fashion favourites.

I am obsessed with any sparkle or glitz.  A sparkling manicure adds glam to any outfit.  I also love doing an accent nail in sparkle or doing fun patterns.  I recently purchased both this gold polish “west end wonderland” from Butter London and Sephora by OPI confetti “spark-tacular”.

I love this classic chanel-esq striped sweater.  The classic sweater looks great with a fall trench coat.

This animal print blouse looks great with pants or tucked in a high wasted skirt.

I am still loving lace. This black Aritzia dress is gorgeous, and would look great with a coloured belt.

Lastly, this trench coat is beautiful, classic with a twist.  The beautiful ruffle detail makes its girly, and the price is great.


Thanks so much Leanne! I appreciate you taking the time to show my readers some of your fave picks for fall while I get organized after my week away. I have to admit I'm contemplating buying that trench. Who can resist a ruffled collar?
