Sneakerella. Camille’s modern version of sneaker girls. Someone I became until very lately. See, I’m definitely a high heels girls. If Cam would wear sneakers with dresses and skirts, I’d wear heels with jogger pants or boyfriend jeans. I love heels, I love the assurance it gives you when you walk with them. I also love how it ”sexifies” your outfit instantly. (What’up Julia Robert runaway bride pose remake! I always wanted to do that. minus the bride dress).

But, once I owned my first pair of Converse, I was hooked. Comfort never seemed that classy. So just like Cam, I started wearing them with almost everything. Skirts, dresses, jumpsuits… except maybe boyfriend jeans. Converse and boyfriend jeans made me feel like a retarded teenager in an adult state of mind. Not cool. BUT. A perfect skirt, white t-shirt and leather perfecto is totally my new ”Casual is the new Chic”. In her article, Cam was discussing Nike vs Converse girls. According to her definition, Converse girls are the careless, free spirited, comfort junkies ladies who still look sexy in their outfit. Hope I rep well her interpretation of those girls, since I’m certainly not a Nike Girl.

This look has been shot at the Ritz Carlton Residences with the help of our new Beauty Expert Mayillah and the incredible Josée Lecompte who was behind the lenses. Dress and accessories are from Loue 1 Robe (of course!), Blazer from Judith & Charles and heels are Louboutin. 

Loue 1 Robe. I swear by this name. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know how much I cherish this company. I practically wear their dresses to every event I attend. But since I already told you about this concept, I now wanna talk about the owner and the business guru behind it. Sara Ghribi.

I remember exactly the first conversation I had with Sara. It was a sunday, I need a dress for a bal I was attending the following week, and she immediately suggested a call, after I sent her an e-mail to reach out. She was so kind, so positive, and so attentive to my needs, that we settled the dress (and an appointment) in a matter of 15 min, then spent one hour… just talking. About her, her background, my background, who we are, what we want, what we dream of. At the end of the call, I’ve made a new friend.

Two years later, I’ve watched her work very hard to make her company known. I’ve seen her battle hard the downsides of the business of fashion, I’ve watched her struggle to bring up the company to where it is today: A successful venture that has a large clientele base, and that is so trustworthy, I only hear great things about it out there. I know how difficult for a woman to be out there, and in business. But I’ve seen her capture one event at time Montreal, and seduce all people who interact with her through her sincere kindness and generosity. I’ve also seen her refine her (amazing!) collection of dresses, offering the best one, on a budget, can ask. Dresses from Christian Dior, to Cavalli, to BCBGMAXAZRIA, to Zara… offering a large variety to many shapes, budget and style.

Cheers to you Sara. Cheers to two successful years and many more to come! Cheers to the wonderful woman you are. Cheers for bringing us up through your determination and hard work. Cheers to all business women out there who are working hard to make their dreams come true. You’ve set an example, to all women out there, and I can only hope to be like you.
