Dressing Up for Fashion Week

Dress:  Rachel Sin / Jacket: ZARA (similar) / Bag: Chanel WOC (similar) / Shoes: Old Navy / Necklace: Forever21 (similar)

World Mastercard Fashion Week is such an exciting time – I usually try to head downtown for at least one day. This season I chose Tuesday – and it turned out to be SO busy! Aside from the fashion shows, there were also a couple of blogger events all scheduled for the same night.

and I were excited to get the opportunity to wear dresses from a
Canadian designer to the fashion week events. We’re both wearing floral
Rachel Sin dresses from the Spring 2015 collection – mine is the Taylor Dolce Rose Dress while Jenelle is wearing the Floral Scuba Dress.

I loved the print and the fit of my dress – it’s hard to find a flattering midi-length dress – but this dress felt sleek without being too revealing – the perfect balance!

I spotted Nicole from Dainty Girl outside the tents – she was dressed in Narces – isn’t her outfit SO gorgeous?

Once inside, Jenelle and I visited the Maybelline and Pandora booths before heading to the studio to watch the Helder Diego Show.

After the show, we rushed up to Bloor Street to the beautiful Guerlain boutique for the #GuerlainSoParticular Blogger event (more on that in a future post)!

We finished the night at the Glam Canada Fashion Week Insider Dinner. The Italian food at Terroni – was soooo delicious …thank goodness for stretchy dresses!

Thank you to Rachel Sin for lending us these gorgeous dresses so that we could get fancy for Fashion Week! And HUGE thanks to Shizzy for shooting the outfit photos in this post.

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

      Thanks Skylette – I really feel blessed to live in Toronto – because there are a lot of exciting events – yet it's small enough that you really get to know people 🙂
