Attending Fashion Week + Street Style with FLARE

Fall/Winter 2014 World Mastercard Fashion Week took place in Toronto last week. I was super excited to attend the Joe Fresh Runway show AND go behind the scenes to view hair and makeup with Redken and Maybelline.

While waiting backstage, I was asked if I wanted to participate in Flare Magazine’s Street Style Video – SO exciting – was a major Pinch Me – Am I Dreaming moment. Here are some screen caps – I’ve embedded the videos at the bottom of this post.

Shirt: Garage (similar), Skirt: J.Crew Factory (similar), Necklace: Wantable (similar), Bag: Chanel WOC

Despite the cold and rainy weather, I wanted to wear lots of florals to remind me of Spring. I paired my colorful pencil skirt with a chunky statement necklace c/o Wantable (an accessories subscription box service that I’ll be reviewing soon.) I carried my Chanel Half-Moon WOC (a recent purchase – I keep meaning to post a bag review – I adore it!)

Dream Wonder Powder, Colorshow Nailpolish in Punk Rock Pink, Hi-Lighting Bronzer & Lip Colour Elixir in Dashing Orchid

After the show, I received this adorable Maybelline x LMA denim tote, filled with exciting products to try. I’m already in love with the Lip Colour Elixir in Dashing Orchid – not only is it in Spring’s hottest colour – it’s very moisturizing and super shiny too!

Linking up with More Pieces of Me and On the Daily Express.

    How exciting! I'm glad you sported some color – I think it's a bit depressing that everyone thinks you must wear black!Sequins&Stilettos

      Glad you liked the color – I'm not a huge fan of too much black clothing – I prefer lighter shades 🙂
