World MasterCard Fashion Week: Some Select Outfits I Wore

Wow, what a crazy week!  While I used to try to post my outfits daily DURING the event, I’ve now saved it for the end.  It’s just getting busier and busier for me each season (or maybe I’m just getting older).  I did manage to get at least one photo each day, but not everything turned out that well – even ones I had taken at a photo booth.  I actually think it’s sad that the photos I take of myself at home, using a remote often turn out better.  Some of the pictures looked like red carpet pics of actresses that make their heads look too big for their bodies.  Sad, really.  Anyway, as with past seasons, I tried to wear one Canadian brand each day…

 

Day One:

  • Jacket: Femme de Carriere (the one Canadian item)
  • Top: Banana Republic
  • Pants: Yep, those faux leather pants from BLANK
  • Shoes: Stuart Weitzman

Day 3:

  • Top: Matis by Lucian Matis (one of the lines presenting that day)
  • Jacket: AIME (one of my favourite Canadian designers)
  • Pants: J.Crew
  • Shoes: Stuart Weitzman

Day 5 (hair):

  • Self portrait taken via iPhone.  Hair done at Blo Blow Dry Bar at the Shangri-La Toronto (this is the latest location in the city. Was contemplating between Shangri-La and Financial District, but ultimately chose the former, since the Financial District location is always super-busy).

Day 5 Outfit:

  • Top: Matis by Lucian Matis (“everyday” line by Lucian Matis, who presented on Wednesday)
  • Skirt: VAWKKIN (VAWK desginer, Sunny Fong’s “everyday” line.  Sunny presented Friday and won season two of Project Runway Canada)
  • Belt: BCBG
  • Shrug: Ann Taylor Factory
  • Boots: Saunda

In case you’re wondering, yes, there were two photo booths – one sponsored by Express and another by Maybelline.  Express used a photo booth service called PhotoStar where pictures were taken via an camera that looked like a gigantic tablet or smartphone then printed out or emailed, while the Maybelline booth was taken by an actual person.  The camera photos are then uploaded to a system where photograhees can then email to themselves.  I think the Maybelline booth took better pictures, personally, but the Express booth, with its white floor, better showed footwear, considering most of us were wearing dark shoes/boots!
