Toronto’s fashion elite were out in full force last week for the World Mastercard Fashion Week.  This was my first time attending Fashion Week, and what a week it was.  I will admit that it was not as glamorous as I had imagined, however, I felt like I was in fashion heaven the entire time.  It was so thrilling to be around so many stylish people who share my same love for fashion.  The most exciting part was getting to meet and spend time with many other Toronto bloggers…women I now feel like I can call my friends.

 

This winter white ensemble was what I wore to the first day of Fashion Week.  Oh, it was freezing outside, but I was determined to not wear tights with any of my outfits.  If there is a time to suffer for fashion, I would say that Fashion Week is definitely that time.

 

Over the next week, I will share with you what I wore each day for the shows, and also some of my favourite pieces from the most impressive collections on the runways.  My favourite show in terms of wear-ability was definitely Pink Tartan.  Created by Kimberly Newport-Mimran, (wife to Joe Mimran, founder of Club Monaco and Joe Fresh), this collection was full of retro lady-like luxury.  I can honestly say that I would wear almost every piece that came down the runway.  My favourite look was the first piece that kicked off the show. . .the gorgeous floral print swing coat shown below.  I could see myself wearing this coat year round and feeling uber-glamorous no matter what I was wearing it with.

    Hi Jenny!

    I just followed the link to your blog from Fash Boulevard. I wanted to leave you a note to say that cream looks very good on you! At first I thought you were wearing a dress, but you pieced the top and skirt together to make for a lovely ensemble. Adorable look, I’ll have to add your blog to my bookmarks :]

    Jenny, I saw this outfit in the morning before I had time to comment and man was I blown away! I just loved this look so much and really want to remake it (hehe thank you for the inspiration). At first I thought it was a dress but no..a skirt and shirt! You just look fabulous and sophisticated, and it seems like you had a great time at Fashion Week. I wanted to go this year but with school and other commitments I just couldn’t. Next year I am definitely going!! xo

    • Jenny
      March 25, 2013

      Aww, you are just too sweet Lauren! I can’t wait to see your version of this look! Hopefully you can make it to Fashion Week this Fall, and we can meet in person! 🙂
