I’m the featured blogger on The Luxe Life Blogger Roll this week talking all about my 90s inspired Toronto Fashion Week look. Check out the article I wrote and the outfit I styled here: The Luxe Life.
Three things I need from this collection: the sandals aka “Jesus Birkenstocks”, the silk screened sweatshirts of full moons and the custom made leather that is dyed to look like bleached denim – in either dress or blazer counterpart. I’d be happier with both. Bravo, Mr. Lee, this collection is super wearable and oh-so Scandinavian chic.
The possibilities are endless. Nighttime reveals latent dreams of couture and high heels. In my mind, it’s the spark of excitement – dressing up to go out like a transformation from monotony to fantastic. I asked myself who I wanted to be that night. A lady with lots of secrets. A leather dress that stuck like a second skin. A disguise. A reprise, even. For I’ve been here before, acting out a venomous slither of long legs and black lashes through the night.
Taking photos around Tribeca after the Sass & Bide show on Tuesday, at The James Hotel rooftop, finally, and earlier, kicking it around Grand Central Station after the jam-packed Diesel show – which we didn’t get to see thanks to Kanye West’s ego taking up five seats – we had to watch from outside the Vanderbilt Hall due to overcapacity regulations. But like I always say when things don’t go quite as planned during Fashion Week, “there’s always next season”. Sass & Bide was spectacular though and I must say my futuristic outfit proved for the perfect street style photographs. I’m wearing a leather Caitlin Power dress, Nella Bella Morelle Clutch and Dolce Vita shoes with transparent heel (on trend). Metallics, plastics and leather. A high ponytail is the only way to complete this look. And of course, a cupcake from famed Magnolia Bakery. Read the rest of this entry »
The CNE has been really good to us media folk this year. Although I couldn’t attend the preview last week, myself and a few of Toronto’s prominent fashion peeps (Amanda Lao and Caitlin Power; Julio Reyes and Daniel Desforges of Fashionnights.com; Marcus Kan of Draw a Dot; and JR Bernstein) took advantage of the $5 after 5pm deal earlier this week – which is open to everyone, not just media. I am alive to write this post because I did not eat a cronut burger (although, Marcus did and I haven’t heard from him since). I opted for a good ole hot dog and funnel cake, strawberry with soft serve, only. Of course, I had to dress the part with my homemade denim cut-offs, a PINK skull tank, cap on backwards and an Alviero Martini knapsack (to keep it Eurotrash, obviously). Had so much fun we’re going back again next week!
I think if you stand too close to Anna dello Russo you begin to morph into her not-so-quite replica. Such has been the fate of her assistant, Carlotta Oddi. Not quite Anna, but still quite Eurotrash.
Excuse me while I make myself an espresso before I continue this post. Read the rest of this entry »
