The team here at Laura was recently lucky enough to meet Laraina, a bright and resilient young woman who has overcome a number of health-related challenges.
When Laraina began to make strides in reinventing herself (she’s lost 100 pounds as of this year!), she created an entirely new wardrobe with the help of Claudia, a longtime family friend and the Manager at Laura Carrefour Laval. We were delighted to get to know her and learn about her journey, with both an interview in our Laura Spring 2020 Brochure and a video feature.
During the video shoot, we asked about her favourite items from the spring collection. Let’s take a closer look at the pieces she chose and why she felt connected to them.
Brighten Up Your Day
It’s amazing what colours can do to affect your mood. Filling your wardrobe with colourful blouses and other clothing like this will give you a lot of ways to brighten up your day, and spring is pretty much the perfect time to do that!
I like having a workday outfit that’s not exactly a corporate head-to-toe look, but is still well put together. That’s what’s perfect about a combination like this, the right blazer with a great pair of jeans is definitely professional but it also has a casual-chic feeling.
A Dress for Any Occasion
It’s always nice finding a dress that you can wear to various different occasions so that it’s not too limiting. This one is a good example because there are so many ways to style it. I could dress it up or dress it down depending on what I need and where I’m going.
You can never have enough denim! When you have these fun details like embroidery with different colours and patterns, you’re not stuck using jeans just for casual settings. I could wear these to work or when I go out, they’re so much more versatile.
Over all what I really love about the spring collection is that it gives you the ability to mix and match different items to create a variety of outfits. Having someone like Claudia there to help has shown me how easy it is to turn a few key pieces into an entire wardrobe for the season!
