Few weeks ago all the fashion industry in Toronto got together to celebrate Fashion week. Tom*FW for men and TW-FW for women. Six days of fun and inspiration and of course a lot of creativity coming from young Canadian designers, that were showcasing their interpretation to FW17 .
Needless to say how busy it was for me, being in all the shows and then taking care of my energetic boys. Even though, it was an amazing and fulfilling experience from all aspects. Also, it was so great to meet all the other fashion bloggers (it felt like a blogger reunion). One of the things I absolutely love about my work is the fact that it’s let you take a part in all these fashionable events and share them with you in my Instastories.

Recently I found myself shopping in my own closet, trying to find old bargains, that can be wear again. Needless to say how many items I have collected in all these recent years. Among all the stuff, I found this tailored blazer, which I got few years ago when I was working as a stylish at BCBG. This Blazer was neglected in my closet and I completely forgot about it’s existence.
I defiantly think that it’s not a bad idea to shop in your own closet once an a while, and getting a new wardrobe without spending money. The whole idea is to refresh your look and give it a new life, by adding new accessories like the statement ring and the wrap necklace which I got from Topaz.
Blazer is one of the most versatile item in your closet and never go out of style, therefore, it’s worth to invest on a quality one. this structured blazer is an essential piece which can upgrade any outfit and make it look more polished.
I admit that as much as I love wearing oversized pieces, sometimes I feel like my shape gets lost in all these layers and easy breezy fabrics. I opt for a belt which add more definition to the tailored blazer. I wore it as a top, without a shirt underneath, trying to keep my look simple but still playful.
Blazer: BCBG, Skirt: Club Monaco, Boots: Aldo, Necklace and ring : Topaz Jewelry
While bomber jacket and pleated skirt are two of my favourite pieces during the fall season, I developed another obsession to velvet. The luxury fabric has been spotted everywhere from the runway to the streets and there are many style to chose from, dresses, suiting, skirts, and even bags and shoes. At first glance the pleated velvet skirt may seems like impossible to pull off, but the feminine silhouette and the rich hue are very flattering and really make the outfit pop , especially when pairing it with a bomber jacket or oversized sweater and simple accessories for a polished look.
Even so Velvet is a statement piece, there are many styles to chose from, so you can actually wear it from day to night depending on your accessories and your own personal style. I decided to team my velvet accordion pleats with an embroidered bomber jacket and a pair of white shoes. I think it’s the perfect way to balances between soft femininity and sporty edge.
