For her recent trip to Vancouver, she was looking for the perfect travel shoe to get her around. We thought our new summer sandal would fit the bill.
What’s the most annoying thing about clothes shopping in 2019?
Size inconsistency! Particularly with clothing, it’s like every brand uses their own size guide, so I can be a 4 in one style and a 10 in another! It’s really frustrating, especially with the massive growth of online shopping and not trying things on before you buy.
“Cougar’s Pippy Leather Sandal is genuinely a game changer! With stain-resistant soft nappa leather padded straps, they feel seamless on your feet whether you’re walking through Stanley Park like I was, or just taking to the downtown streets.”
Share one time when what you were wearing had a big impact on your life.
I believe that what I’m wearing always has an impact on my life. The way I present myself (starting with my style) really sets the tone for the impressions I make, and the opportunities that come my way. I’d like to think what I wear gets noticed, and I truly believe it’s become a part of my personal brand.
Who is your current style icon?
I absolutely LOVE Bre Sheppard’s style (@bresheppard).
It’s so girl next door with a fun, unexpected twist, and she always experimenting with colours, prints, and pieces you wouldn’t think would go together, but somehow she masters them. I’ve definitely started taking more risks with my own style and owe some of that to her!
What is the most underappreciated item in a woman’s wardrobe?
Definitely a blazer.
There is something so sophisticated and minimalistic about a classic blazer, and I love that it can be dressed up with a pencil skirt or down with distressed denim. I’m a big fan of the blazer and my closet would definitely back me up on that!
What’s the biggest mistake people make when shopping for clothes?
I think the biggest mistake people make is playing it safe. There are so many cool “trends” that we see as being too out there, or thinking they won’t be able to pull it off. But you never know until you try!
I recently hopped on the wide leg jean trend (that I thought I could NEVER do) and I’m officially converted!
“From the airport to outdoor adventures to brunch, Cougar’s Pippy Sandal is the shoe your closet and suitcase are in major need of for summer 2019!”
How did your sandals perform on the trip?
I love that they are made with comfort and durability in mind, but don’t for a second sacrifice style! It’s hard to find shoes that do fashion and function, but Cougar really knows how to do both while creating shoes that make a statement. I also LOVE that they are Canadian, obviously.
