Stars and Stripes

Monday, March 18, 2013 65 0

Hat: ASOS. Coat: Zara. Shirt: Zara (love this starry version). Jeans: H&M. Shoes: J.Crew (old). Handbag: Balenciaga. Ring: Stella & Dot. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Happy Monday everyone!  Today is a pretty exciting day for me. . .tonight I will be attending my very first fashion show, ever.  Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week begins today and runs until Friday.  I’ve dreamed of attending a fashion show for as long as I can remember, and I’m giddy with anticipation for this evening.  I’ll be attending several spectacular shows over the next week including Joe Fresh, Mackage, Rudsak, Vawk, Lucian Matis and Pink Tartan.

 

Just as exciting as attending the shows, I’m also looking forward to meeting several other Toronto Fashion Bloggers for the first time in person.  Connecting with other women who love fashion as much as I do was one of the main reasons I started blogging.  I moved to Toronto six years ago this month, and have met many wonderful people since, but none that shared the same interest and passion for fashion as I do.  I have a feeling that I will finally feel like I’m in my element this week, with fabulous women who, like me, live for fashion.  Now, the most important question is, “What in the world am I going to wear?”.

    I’m jealous! I want to go to a fashion show! But I live in Kentucky…the closest thing we get to fashion is the Derby, when we wear ridiculous hats. I realllllly love your star patterned blouse!

      Ha ha ha, I think my style is finally moving into what I’ve always wanted it to be but for some reason could never quite achieve. I think blogging has really forced me to carefully examine what I have in my closet and whether it portrays my true style and the image I want for myself. I’m definitely have a major crush for the cutesy, girly pieces, but I also need some more sophisticated pieces in my wardrobe to mix in. Thank you so very much Sheree! 🙂
