Reaching into the vintage stash with one of my favourite dresses. I found this incredible Averardo Bessi piece at I Miss You (I’m pretty sure) a few years back. It’s a stunner. #ggatshopify Dress – Vintage Averardo Bessi, Shoes – J. Crew

Dancing to @tameimpala. Trying not to cry over the covid concert postponement. Not as warm as yesterday, so I can do some layering today. These poor Kirkwood’s are getting little use #ggatshopify Top – Philip Sparks, Shoes – Nickolas Kirkwood, Bottom – Topshop, Earring – Warren Steven Scott

Clashing #ggatshopify. Love this pink satin MM6 skirt but I forgot about all the things that go along with this ?? water stains, wrinkles, ?. I haven’t owned a satin skirt since the 90s. I grabbed this red tank top only because I need to do laundry and I didn’t want to resort to sleeves. Skirt – MM6, Top – Artizia, Sandals – Halmanera, Earring – Warren Steven Scott

Special sunset #ootd. I meant to wear this dress during the week but just didn’t happen. Felt like a real shame not to grab some shots of it, even if it’s not a #ggatshopify day. When I saw this dress on Ease’s Instagram I knew I was done for ? Dress – Kowtow, Earrings – Warren Steven Scott

Who doesn’t love a great, detachable ruffle?! I know I do. I love that I can wear it in the front or back. It’s the little things Yup, I’m wearing makeup and dressed to the nines so it must be a ShipIt! day. The 3rd Monday is now my event day . Remember when we went out to events and parties . #ggatshopify

Sluggish Wednesday ?. Didn’t feel like bothering getting out of my robe initially. I convinced myself to out something easy on and I remember my Uzi dresses. Went with pink one to brighten my mood. Bonus wind machine Dress – Uzi NYC, Sandals – Adidas

Today, I felt like wearing vintage for #ggatshopify. It’s still kinda warm and this fabric is really light. I can’t remember where I got this dress but I’m pretty sure it was in Toronto. Enjoying a Pineapple Express all the way from BC @whistlerbrewing. Thx @mu_is_too_short Dress – Vintage, Sandals – Kyma

It’s hot today, so it’s all about the shorts #ggatshopify. Bonus bts video of the sausage getting made. It was an accident. These shorts are perfect! So much so they made me want to wear heels. I spend about 5 to 10 mins doing these #ggatshopify photos (10 mins if I’m dancing). I’m the opposite of a content creator looking over 200 selects of basically the same shot. I take probably less than 15 shots and choose from that. Shorts – Caron Callahan, Top – Aritiza, Shoes – J. Crew

Yup, another jumpsuit. I love this one because of the little half apron wrap thing happening, and it’s really light cotton. Camper scandals bought on my last trip to London #ggatshopify Jumpsuit – Rujuta Sheth, Sandals – Camper Instagram link

#ggatShopify – Jul 20, 2020

ShipIt! day is always fun because it’s an excuse for me to dress as if I was going somewhere (complete with makeup. I even put on eyeliner today folks). I wanted to bring back memories of London, so I grabbed this vintage dress I picked up there from my closet this morning (I miss London ). I also haven’t worn my Ellery earrings much, so they also made an appearance. #ggatshopify I’ll share the video of the event later. It was a good one. Dress – Vintage, Shoes – Abel Munoz, Earring – Ellery

#ggatShopify – November 15, 2016: Classic Black & White

So, it’s my 2nd day at Shopify and I went with a classic black and white outfit. Actually, I really love this outfit and I feel good and put together every time I put it on. It’s a classic pairing in my wardrobe (tight top with a full skirt). It’s something I wore often when I wasn’t playing the #ggatShopify game. Art is a big part of Shopify offices, it’s everywhere and one of the wonderful things that make the place special. I lost my shit the first time I saw the cat wall. These are my people, I thought. It only made sense that I’d use the cat wall as the backdrop to my second #ggatShopify post. Okay, let’s break down this outfit. The skirt is is from Rebecca Taylor who isn’t Canadian unfortunately. I hosted a fashion show at The Hudson’s Bay at Yorkdale several years ago (before Shopify) and I received a gift certificate as payment. I purchased this skirt and a couple other things. It’s faux leather, which isn’t something I …

#ggatShopify – November 14, 2016: Jumpsuits in Camo

It’s November 14, 2016 and my first day at Shopify. I was so excited and nervous. This wasn’t the Bank and I didn’t know what it would be like working at a company that wasn’t over 50,000 people anymore.  This is the date the #ggatShopify experiment began.  I spent a lot of time deciding what to wear on the first day. It was like it was Toronto Fashion Week. I can’t remember the reasons why I chose this particular outfit outside of jumpsuits being cool and that’s enough for me. This is Shopify’s rooftop and my favourite place in the office. There are a few #ggatShopify shots taken on this roof, especially in the summer. Thinking about it makes me smile. Okay, let’s break down this outfit. The jumpsuit is by Mercy, a Canadian womenswear brand from the owners of Gaspard in Toronto. I love camo and military inspired clothing. The fit of this jumpsuit is perfect, it’s more streamline than baggy. The belt is hard to see in the photo but it’s black cowhide …

ggatShopify — A Sartorial Battle Royale

Leaving RBC and my 14-year Quality Assurance career for the possibilities that an Engineer Storyteller role at Shopify was a massive leap into the unknown. There was so much self-examination going on in my head. I was stepping away from the software pipeline and wouldn’t be part of software development leaving behind a whole pile of feelings: anxiety, the absolute joy of breakthroughs, pride of a job well done, the rush of adrenaline, and frustration (of course). I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it later (spoiler alert, no regrets). Shopify doesn’t have a dress code so I could wear whatever I want. Thinking about the things I couldn’t wear at RBC that were now fair game made me take a good look at the enormity of my closet and how much of it wasn’t worn often. I decided I would wear something different from my closet every day I went into the to the office. There were some rules. I didn’t have enough foundational pieces like shoes, denim, jewellery, outerwear, cardigans, and handbags to …
