When I received a cryptic event invitation to attend a special launch party for an undisclosed brand, I was intrigued. It seemed like a unique opportunity and I trusted the PR firm, so I signed up!
After attending the White Cashmere fashion show, I was eager to learn more about Canadian fashion and meet the brains behind it. When Women of Influence announced they were ending their speaker series for the year with Kimberly Newport-Mimran, the President & Head Designer of Pink Tartan, I quickly bought a ticket. Prior to the event, I saw her on a poster at the eyeglasses store Josephson’s in Forest Hill, which solidified her position as a national style icon.
When I focus on seeing speakers from the fashion and media industries, the events tend to be worthwhile and this one was no exception. Charles the Butler was not there, but Susie Sheffman was!
When a Kardashian or Jenner wears something, everyone notices. Myself included.
So after watching an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians this summer where Kourtney layered a silk tank over a white t-shirt, I decided to try something similar with my own wardrobe. The plaid yellow and navy tank (pictured below) has been in my room unworn for too long and now that’s about to change.
I’ve always been a fan of layering and now that following Kourtney’s lead will let me wear something I’ve always liked yet didn’t fit properly, I’m into this new trend. Upon further research, I realized that Kourtney’s been spotted doing this more than once and Kylie is a fan too, as well as North. They’ve actually layered slip dresses over white tees and tanks.
This is a simple trick that’s easy to execute with a low budget, so I’m all in!
Toronto might be going through a heat wave, but inside Sears Canada’s media preview, it seemed like the holiday season is fast approaching. In other words, it’s not too early to start preparing a wish list or thinking about how you want to decorate your home.
In an effort to position themselves as fashion-forward, Sears is going to start selling a few very recognizable footwear brands, namely Circus by Sam Edelman, Unlisted by Kenneth Cole and Fergilicous by Fergie. These new shoe collections will be available in September and as long as you have enough storage space, I say go for it! I love my Sam Edelman ankle boots, but I never expected Sears to carry their products. I commend them for making a strong effort to keep up with the latest trends while offering affordable options.
It’s a lot easier to think positively about winter when you’re surrounded by all things red, black and white—my favourite colour scheme! What excites you about shopping for the holiday season?
