Events in the City

Last Thursday I attended the Arts and Fashion Week in Toronto.  The event took place from April 24-28 showcasing fashion in different art forms such as runway, photography, video and installations.  Each night had a different theme that designers and artists translated through their work.  The theme for the night I attended was bodyscapes which meant a whole lot of sexy under garments on the runway!  The event was fantastic and my favourite part?  The photography exhibits.  You can check out a few below.

Lost in Arizona
As models came down the runway covered up in capes, feminine lingerie was exposed by the time they approached the end to pose.  I loved these fairytale-like sexy little numbers.  

House of Etiquette
Models walked down the runway looking like dominatrices but with an interesting twist.  In addition to the expected red and black patent leather outfits was a fun twist of aqua blue.  Something more my style if I were to be into that sorta thing!

Madame Peripetie
LOVE LOVE these pictures.  I don't know if this a youthful looking older women or a younger women made out to look older.  Either way she is stunning and totally owns each of these looks.  Truly an inspiration in terms of styling for me.

Magnus Ragnvid Chammon
LOVED these images!!  The massive over-sized owl head is both eerie and cute since I love owls.  And how amazing is the second photo where the model is made out to resemble a bird with feathers made of ballet slippers?  Incredible.

A dress made out of film -  I think Madonna would wear it for sure!

Maja Zii - Fashion Fetish
Who doesn't love lipstick?  Of course I was drawn to this piece of art!

Gotta Have It


Oh how these take me back to elementary school days when Sunice was SO COOL! It really is hilarious to see things that were a must have once upon a time to come back in style full circle. Especially since every moment leading up to the point where an old trend becomes cool again we would laugh about how horrendous that particular style was! I actually feel quite silly because with these type of sunglasses in particular I was thinking not too long ago "how did we ever wear those and actually think we looked cool" to recently coming across an editorial in Vogue with a model wearing the exact style and changing my thinking to "how wicked do these look - I need a pair"! Oh how the power of styling can be so influential sometimes! Since being struck by these sunglasses I started to notice them popping up more and more everywhere I turn. So its true! They really are back in style and it's no wonder with all the bright colours trending at this time.  I look forward to keeping you posted on a pair that I decide on sometime soon!

All Put Together

I will never get sick of a little leather in my closet. Whether it's a little or a lot it gives your look just a bit of edge to keep it trendy. I love these shorts that I scored at H&M and think they look best worn with nylons and my little booties. To offset the darker bottom half I went with a vibrant green tank that completed the style of my outfit. Although the leather shorts are a statement, adding color made everything pop that much more!

Top :: Club Monaco
Shorts :: H&M
Necklace/Bracelet :: Stella & Dot

Events in the City

Recently I attended the twobirds Bridesmaid showroom for the launch of their new chiffon bridesmaid dress collection.  Twobirds Bridesmaid is all about giving bridesmaids one dress that can be worn and look beautiful on women off all shapes and sizes.  How you ask?  Well the dress comes in just two sizes.  Size A fits dress sizes 2-14 and the size B fits 16-24!  And the best part is that they can be wrapped in over 15 different ways!!  The new chiffon addition is great because it's a separate piece that you can wear over top of their classic style bridesmaid dress which gives you even more option when re-wearing the dress.  At the launch event it was so wonderful meeting the designer of twobirds, Ariane Goldman, and to witness her amazing style as you will see below!

Now I know these are bridesmaid dresses and I'm no wedding blogger BUT these are so much more functional than just for that big day.  I first saw these dresses a year ago when I attended an event and the two hosts were both wearing one.  I mentioned to my friend I was with that I had to have one of these dresses and to my surprise she informed me that they were bridesmaid dresses!  So stay tuned this Spring for me to show you not only the different ways to wrap the dress but also for how you can wear it as your everyday look!

Ps - you can check out me wearing one of the twobirds rosette collection dresses for my birthday last month here
