Surprisingly, I’m not usually attracted to the color red. I have a lot of red in my skin tone, so I usually stay far, far away from the colour, as it brings out the redness in my skin. But, this dress just spoke to me! I ventured out of my comfort zone, and I’m happy I did! I’ve showcased a few other red & white striped dresses below that I’m really loving as well.

 

Take note for all you other shorties…I had this dress hemmed by 4 or 5 inches. I’m 5’2″ for reference. The dress looked good at it’s full length, however, I felt that because of the more casual feel to the fabric and print, it was a little more versatile at a slightly shorter length on me. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Some of you may have seen on Instagram that I’m currently in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I’m pretty lucky that my work sent me here to take a marketing course.  Justin has never been to Arizona, so he tagged along with me, and while I’m stuck in a meeting room all day, he’s sipping margaritas by the pool and enjoying the desert air.  Okay, I can’t complain. . . we tacked on a few extra days to the trip so I could enjoy the beautiful weather and sightseeing too.  I’ll share some pics soon.

 

I also want to mention that I had the honour of being featured in Framework Magazine’s April Blogger Panel. Framework is a fabulous online magazine dedicated to the essential elements of stylish living.  Thanks Framework!

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?”.
