30 Days of Dresses is now coming to an end, and for the final day of the month-long dress challenge Jayne picked out a dress that makes a stylish, hot statement that you can’t forget. She threw her hair back picked up her Jay Manuel heels and hit the town to celebrate Canada Day with fireworks downtown in a look that was made to sparkle.
With only a few days left of 30 days of dresses, Jayne plans to go out with a bang. On a beautiful Sunday like yesterday, Jayne spent the afternoon relaxing by the water. But to jumpstart the evening, Jayne picked out her dress for day 29 and went out with her friends to celebrate what was left of World Pride Weekend and the up-coming Canada Day.
On Saturday it was such a beautiful day in the city. A lot of people hit their cottages, went camping or spent the day celebrating World Pride Weekend downtown. Jayne had to work in the morning, so after work she spent time relaxing by the lake on a quieter beach away from all the city had to offer. Her and her friends sat by the swans and watched the waves hit the shore while gabbing over the weeks events.
On such a beautiful day in the city, Jayne spent the morning shopping and working away at the Starbucks inside Chapters. Later that evening she went with Elaisha to Black Card Event’s Warhol Fashion show. Before entering the runway room, they sipped on some great wine in the Gladstone Hotel’s lounge area. The runway featured 6 different designers and went from around 8.30pm to 10pm, after the show Black Card Events offered a swaggy after party at the Gladstone Hotel. Due to the hunger of skipping dinner, Jayne and her date Christina went down to College street to grab a bite to eat. Near their parking spot was an old 1957 190Sl Mercedes that had Jayne in awe for quite some time. After a photo opt, and a bit of drooling over the car, they sat down at a nice Italian restaurant while the night slipped away.
I was excited to finally join Jayne in the final stretch of our 30 Days of Dresses run. Read how you can WIN a $100 LOFT gift card after the break.
Day 26 of 30 Days of Dresses had a tough start for Jayne. As one who is never late for work, she ran into work flustered and an hour and a half late. But even though she was behind schedule, she still managed to throw on a new dress for the challenge while running out the door. After her long shift, she got to bask in the sun by the lake in the perfect little summer-ready number. This dress can be spiced up for the evening or taken casually to the waterfront for a casual day in the park.
