My name is Alecz. I know, it’s spelled a little bit strangely, and it always confuses people when they see it written out. When I was born, my parents decided to name me after my grandpa, Alec. They added a ‘zandra’ onto the end of it, and TA DA! Aleczandra.

When I graduated from the University of Waterloo and started my job hunt, I was lucky enough to land a position almost immediately. However, I quickly noticed that transitioning from the casual jeans/tee shirts/sweaters of university life to something resembling ‘business casual’ attire was pretty tough.

After working for two years, I now appreciate this wardrobe change immensely. I love pencil skirts, blouses, blazers, dresses, and classy jackets, and I hardly miss my jeans and tees at all. One thing I’ve noticed is that attaining this professional look often confuses and intimidates people, and sometimes downright terrifies them. Rather than having fun with their pencil skirts and blazers, women often opt for the black pants/white shirt combo. Now, there is nothing wrong with this particular outfit if it’s styled properly. The issues arises when this is ALL that you wear, because you’re afraid to try anything else.

I have seen a lot of spectacularly dressed women out there, but quite a few of them wear designer pieces from head to toe. For a lot of us, this is simply not going to happen, because we can’t swing it financially.

I wanted to start a blog that proved professional clothing (for both the workplace and  everyday life) can be affordable, fun, and classy! It’s all about finding that balance between price and quality, and choosing pieces that work for your personality, shape, and budget.

If you have amy questions, or would like advice about how to style a particular piece, feel free to send me an email at forsevenseasons@gmail.com

Enjoy, and thanks for reading!

  2. Hey Alec! I love your style so much! I’ve just graduated as well and it’s been a pain trying to decide how to wear my clothes in a more professional way. You do such a great job at keeping fun and stylish, yet business-like and serious at the same time. 🙂
    I would love to see your outfits in new backgrounds too since it’s almost time for spring. Looking forward to your spring style and hope you’ll stop by my blog too!

  3. i have a very similar attitude toward getting dressed for the workplace (i myself wonder why so many professional women default to black pants, black cardigans, black blazers, all worn together… i can’t stand it!) so i’m glad i found your blog! looking forward to following along!

  5. I really like your name it’s so unique! Never encountered anyone with that name before. Anyway, i think your blog is going to be very helpful to me because I’m a business management student, and we are required to dress up all business-y (it frustrates me bc i couldn’t think of anything else to wear besides plain black skirt, white blouse, and black blazers– sort of boring). I hope i can learn a lot from your blog! 🙂
