What I Wore: WMCFW

Toronto Fashion Week has come and gone, and while I am incredibly thankful to have been able to attend some amazing shows, witness backstage magic first-hand, and meet so many interesting (and oftentimes talented) people…I have to say that by Day 5, I was wiped out. Even three days of fashion shows combined with my 9-5 was enough to require a weekend of R&R, which is exactly what the doctor prescribed. I’m the doctor, in case you are wondering.

And while I’m still working on my #WMCFW coverage, I thought I’d share my fashion week outfits. From my red ALDO shoes, to my Joe Fresh coordinates, to my fave falconwright clutch, I tried to infuse Canadian and Canadian-made pieces into my outfits for each day of fashion week, as captured by the amazing street style photographers Mauricio Calero and Max Kopanygin. Thanks, boys!

What I Wore: Checkmate

ann-taylor-windowpane-check-coat-black-white-9

Toronto Fashion Week officially starts this week, and that means long days, sleepless nights, and lots of “nothing to wear” moments, which is why I am so happy to have this awesome Ann Taylor coat to save me from closet indecision. The print is perfect for spring, and all I have to do is throw this coat over almost anything for an instant touch of polish. Looking put together has never been this easy.

Also, I apologize in advance if I’m MIA for the next few days. Should be back to normal after fashion week.

Happy Monday and Happy Toronto Fashion Week!!! Let the craziness begin!

What I Wore: Never Enough

club-monaco-coat-chanel-brooch

…coats! Because, in my opinion, if you live in a country with winters, coats are a necessity, and you can never have too many! I picked up this moss-coloured beauty at Club Monaco with an extra 30% off sale items for a steal, and since the promo will run for a few more days, I strongly urge you to take advantage. There’s another coat I have my eye on…it’s cream, with a faux fur collar, and it’s beautiful! But seeing how I’m a messy…everything, a white coat might not be the best idea…for me. But I’m still thinking about it.

What I Wore: Prized Possessions

chanel-brooch-military-pants-dvf-clutch

Last weekend, my blogging bestie Sharon and I set off on a little roadtrip to Buffalo to do some Christmas shopping, and pick up some things that we both purchased months ago…like my new precious Chanel brooch. Having ordered it from Saks back in August, I was ecstatic to finally be able to get my hands on the tiny treasure. So ecstatic in fact, that I ended up wearing it to brunch the very next day…along with my new bejewelled DVF clutch that I picked up from Saks Off 5th during the same Buffalo trip (for a steal!!!). Score and score!

Along with my YSL arty oval ring, and Margiela with H&M booties, this outfit is pretty much a collection of my most prized (physical) possessions…ones that I will surely treasure for years to come.

Do you have special pieces that always make you happy and jazz up any outfit you wear? Tell me all about them in the comments!

What I Wore: Winter Florals

floral-leather-margiela-hm-booties

I’ve already warned you about this Club Monaco skirt…you’ll be seeing it A LOT. I have a tendency to get obsessed with one or two pieces and then wearing them all the time. No, seriously…ALL THE TIME. And this skirt is no exception.

This time, I paired it with a silk floral blouse from Joe Fresh, and my new fave Margiela with H&M booties for a simple and elegant daytime look.

What I Wore: Barenaked Ladies

margiela-bodysuit-candy-clutch

Last week, I attended the P&G Beauty and Grooming Awards, where I was a finalist in the Best Beauty or Fashion Blog category. Before making an appearance at such a high-profile event, I have to admit that there were a lot of WHATTOWEAROMGIDONTKNOWWHATTOWEAR freak-outs on my part…before I finally settled on three possible outfits…this one being my favourite.

I didn’t want to be overdressed, and I really wanted to rock my new Margiela with H&M bodysuit, so it was decided…I would wear my new leather skirt from Club Monaco, paired with the aforementioned bodysuit (that le bf hates with a passion I’ve never seen before), silver candy clutch, and a blinged out Zara necklace. I even made le bf shoot these photos before the awards…and then…I changed my mind. Worried that someone else would get the same brilliant idea, I decided to hang up my “nude” top until another such occasion, opting for a safer frock from the Lanvin at H&M collection at the very last minute.

When I arrived at the awards, I breathed a sigh of relief at not having worn my intended outfit…because someone else was already rocking that EXACT SAME LOOK! Ok, not really, but pretty darn close. Fashion Magazine’s Randi Bergman, wore the bodysuit and the candy clutch, paired with a leather skirt from Carven. Leather Skirt + Bodysuit + Candy Clutch = pretty much the same outfit. Though if you’ve seen Anna Dello Russo’s Fashion Shower vid, you’d know that had I worn it, we could both shrug it off and say that “we did the right choice”, and then do a dance off or something…but still…I’m glad that I changed my mind that day.

And though I haven’t actually worn this outfit to the awards, these photos are just too fun not to share! I’ll just have to wear this to work one day…and traumatize all of my colleagues…or maybe wear it to one of our date nights and watch le bf squirm while trying to block my faux bra from public view. Boys! Am I right?

Anndd…speaking of Maison Martin Margiela with H&M collection…here’s Mena Suvari at last night’s party to celebrate the collection, wearing most of my wishlist items. Bodysuit? Check. Candy clutch? Check. Plexiglass shoes? Check.

And you know what? Seeing it on an actual person makes me want these pieces even more! I mean…I didn’t even realize how large that clutch is! And that bodysuit? It looks amazing on her…and hopefully on me too.

Maison Martin Margiela at H&M Lookbook!

maison-martin-margiela-h&m-lookbook

How awesome are the above Maison Martin Margiela at H&M boots and glove bag? Pretty effing awesome if you ask me. We are less than a month away from this glorious collab hitting the stores, and I am almost done making my shopping list! For one, those boots and bag are non-negotiable (as in I will punch anyone who tries to get between me and those two items…you’ve been warned), but I’ll also try to get my hands on the gorgeous silver necklace, blue dress, bra top, blood dress, beige pumps, glove clutch, silver leggings, red dress, blue skirt, and possibly those white paint covered mens shoes…if I find a size small enough. Holy crap. Come November 15th, I’ll be broke and eating Mr. Noodles on the regular. But at least I’ll look good, right?

What’s on your shopping list for the Margiela at H&M collection? Let me know in the comments!

Maison Martin Margiela at H&M Ad Campaign!

maison-martin-margiela-h&m-collaboration

Maison Martin Margiela at H&M ad campaign images shot by Sam Taylor-Johnson are here, and I am getting super excited! The collab is now about a month away (in stores November 15th), and judging by these photos, it’s all going to be VERY Margiela. Which is definitely not for everyone, but I couldn’t be more excited! Is it wrong of me to be seriously obsessed with the below duvet coat? I mean…it looks warm! And those menswear shoes covered in paint…I hope they make it into production too. And perhaps a womenswear version too? What do you think about these MMM x H&M images? Are you as excited as I am? Share in the comments!
