Coat: ASOS. Blouse: Zara (love this similar blouse). Jeans: H&M. Shoes: Boutique 9. Handbag: Balenciaga. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Coach, Kate Spade. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Is it totally annoying if I say I felt like a million bucks in this outfit?  I usually don’t feel my “prettiest” in casual outfits or jeans, but there is something about this outfit that made me feel like I was invincible.  And that “something” was my coat.  I often get very passionate about my clothing purchases, and my thought is that if I don’t absolutely love something, then why would I buy it?  Well, this coat goes beyond “love” for me.  This might just be one of my all-time favourite pieces in my wardrobe. . . ever!  It’s actually too pretty for me to tuck away in my closet, and I’ve been hanging it on the outside of my closet door for the last month so I can stare at it every time I walk in there.

 

I purchased this floral stunner in January and was waiting for just the right moment to wear it.    Well, what better moment than Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week!  And, what a good decision that was.  The day I wore this also marked the first time that anyone has ever asked to take a photo of my outfit.  Fun, right?!  My look was actually featured on the website of my favourite city magazine, Toronto Life!  So exciting!  Ummm, but please ignore the painfully awkward look on my face. . . you can tell I was completely uncomfortable yet overly thrilled during this moment.  Thank you, Toronto Life!

 

I wore this outfit to Day 4 of World Mastercard Fashion Week.  My favourite collection of that night was the Vawk Fall 2013 show.  Vawk is the luxurious ready-to-wear line by Sonny Fong, who was the winner of  Project Runway Canada Season 2.  The collection, titled “Nordic Fauna,” was inspired by Scandinavian minimalist design as well as classic winter hunting gear.  The coat below, with the sheer pleated side, was simply stunning. . . definitely a piece I would love to own.  Click here to see the entire Vawk Fall 2013 collection.

    First of all that jacket is fantastic!! I would totally hang it where I could look at it all the time too!
    Second, I am really jealous that you have a fashion week! That looks like so much fun! We have nothing here in Mississippi! I would have to go to Nashville or New Orleans to go to an event… hopefully I will live someplace with a fashion week someday!

    Hahaha, Jenny, I am not kidding but I had this coat in my shopping car and then decided not to buy it because it was just way too expensive for just a “spring” coat. But it does look beautiful on you. The combo with the jeans and the striped shirt is super chic and makes the coat stand out even more.
