I had been looking forward to Thursday, Day 4, all week. Firstly, Caitlin Power revealed her FW2012 collection with a special surprise: menswear! Yes, even you stylish boys can get in on her futuristic, structured aesthetic. Secondly, I had planned to wear the Ostrich feather skirt by BLAQUE LABEL, with the black sheer bodysuit and Jeremy Scott x Linda Farrow wing sunglasses all from REmix Clothing Co. The perfect addition to my outfit (aside from the infamous sock bun!), was the deep red Florence bag by Nella Bella. I’m so happy that Tarek and his team gave me this bag to wear to Fashion Week – it was like a cherry on top. Its got all these neat compartments (something NB bags are well known for) that made it so easy for me to have all my essentials right at my fingertips. I felt like a pretty princess all day long. What do you guys think of my outfit?

With all this chatter about LGFW here in Toronto, which I learned today from the icy-blonde princess (in a good way), Lisa Kisber, is the 2nd largest fashion week in North America – go team! – it’s always nice to take a break from local frenzy to see what’s going on in the world. Enter style.com. This site was my fashion senior kindergarden, (JK being Jeanne Beker on Fashion Television), and I cling to it lovingly even though there are far more interesting and unique websites out there in the name of style. Sometimes, my loyalty pays off.

Today, Brittany Adams follows an understated trend seen on fashionable necks, ears and wrists this season: the cameo. Remember Laura Secord? Something tells me their signature chocolate cameos are going to be in FLARE’s holiday issue under “what to buy the fashionista who has everything”. Lisa Tant, I will gladly write the feature; I’ll even spare both of us the headache of having to hire me as anĀ intern first.

I think cameos are simply great. They give a vestige of something old, forgotten. Or, if you do like Amedeo Scognamiglio, he can quickly update this traditional adornment by carving something like a skull, perhaps, instead of a bust. Either way I’m totally on board with receiving a dozen chocolate cameos, maybe insert a real Scognamigilio in the centre slot, as the PERFECT Christmas present. Hint, hint! Gosh, I hope my boyfriend reads this post.
