I am guilty of many things in life, but being forever late is on the top of the list.  If I say “I’ll be there in 10 minutes”, I’m probably still trying to pick the right shoes to paired with my outfit. Knowing this, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I finally decided to pick a dress for an important red carpet only three days before the event.



Back in January, I had the incredible chance of flying to Rome of attend the unveiling of Campari Red Diaries series. The celebrations surrounding the launch included a posh night out at one of the trendiest rooftops in the city, which means having to wear the appropriate outfit for the occasion. In panic, I called a friend of mine, who is like my fashion Yoda, asking her for the best place to find without a doubt the ultimate Cinderella outfit. On her recommandation, I decided to pay a visit to Très Chic Styling, a place well known in Montreal for currating beautiful gowns.


Upon my arrival, I was warmly greeted by Christian, who was more than eager to help me with my mission of finding the perfect outfit. Not even 10 minutes after having walked to the entrance door, I had the arms fulled of sumptuous clothes that would have made every Carry Bradshaw and Blair Waldorf of this world faint of joy. I first tried a red bare shoulders dress by the brand Milly, a favortie of celebrites like Beyonce and Solange.


The second outfit I tried was a brocade full circle skirt by Sinequanone paired with a black crop top from AQ/AQ, for a more modern vibe. As soon as put it on, I knew it was the one! Not only I was feeling like a million bucks, but even my overall attitude was one of total confidence.


With my outfit already picked, I took the time to glance at their selection of accessories. A line of perfectly crafted leather handbags automatically caught my attention. “It’s the brand Alice D. They are made in Italy with amazing quality leather and we are the only ones carrying them in Montreal” said Christian with pride. I thought about my credit card hiding in t my bag and I decided it would be better to come back another day to invest in one of these stunning statement pieces.
