Winning the Mapleview Blogger Challenge & ELLE Canada Feature

This has truly been an amazing and exciting week! The fun started when I attended the Mapleview Muse Summer Soiree on Wednesday.

With Krystin from Suburban Faux Pas, Jenelle from Nelle Creations and Dee from Liner, Glitter, Gloss

Earlier in the summer, I had been contacted by Mapleview Centre to participate in their Curated for a Cause contest – three local bloggers (including me) were given a $200 giftcard and asked to style a mannequin (view all the mannequins here). Customers were asked to vote on their favorite outfit – and the blogger with the most votes would get $500 for a charity of their choice.

Jacket: H&M / Shirt: H&M / Necklace: F21 / Shoes: F21 / Bag: F21 / Jeans: True Religion

My chosen charity was Food for Life, and I shopped for my mannequin at
my favorite stores at Mapleview – H&M and Forever21. Here’s the
outfit I put together – totally something I would wear, with lots of blush pink and gold!

I was so excited when they announced the results at the Mapleview Soiree – my outfit got the most votes!!! (More on the party and contest results on the Mapleview blog).

On top of that – I found out on Friday that I would be featured on ELLE Canada online as part of their Street Style Hall of Fame – read my interview here. And the perfect end to the week was visiting a vintage Chanel shop and purchasing a classic Double Flap Bag in Lambskin!!! Can’t wait to share it on the blog in a future post.
