Post Fashion Week: WMCFW Wrap Up!

By Appearances, Event Coverage, Fashion, Model Stuff, Runway, Social MediaNo Comments

My stilettos are back on the shelf again after attending World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto October 22-26 at David Pecaut Square. I have an inside look at the show in it’s entirety  while overseeing the Essie booth inside the tent. For those looking for a stylish, fashionable nail makeover, Essie, the official nail sponsor of the week, offered free manicures. Essie’s gorgeous Winter Collection arrives November 1st at major retailers, like Shoppers Drugmart. Check out my gorgeous nails! They definitely evolved throughout the week; what started as a LuxEffects French manicure quickly turned into Flashy Gold #BeyondCozy nails from the Winter Collection with LuxEffects tips, finally adding in a red accent nail by the end of the week. The red is ‘Leading Lady’ again, hot out of the Essie Winter Collection. Look at the gorgeous Essie polishes fresh for Winter…


Another striking highlight of the week was when Stacie Mckenzie breezed into Maybelline for an adorable photo set with us. I never feel quite prepared for coming face-to-face with a top model I’ve admired for so long. She is truly a sweetheart not to mention a total babe! Here are some of my favorite photos from the week…


As for the shows, Joe Fresh was glitzy, contrasted leather and sheer looks prevailed, and Express closed the show. Afterward, Express hosted a stellar studio party where they gave VIPS free clothes! My new all black STUDIO STRETCH WIDE WAISTBAND EDITOR PANT fit like a dream. Thanks Express.
I sat at Travis Taddeo in the studio, utterly wowed by the dominance of leather at this show. Taddeo juxtaposed a Leather Vest on Sheer, a One Shoulder Blue Backless Dresses with V cuts, Metallic accents, White Ruffle Skirts, White Belted Sheer gowns, interesting cuts, patterned grays on whites, and did I mention a lot of leather layer?
WMCFW describes TRAVIS TADDEO as having ‘gained a loyal following among fashion risk-takers by pushing and overcoming the conventional expectations established for Canadian fashion design. Known for his combination of minimal lines and distinctive blends of silk, jersey, leather and fur, Taddeo offers simplicity with edge by creating a bold marriage between luxury and street wear,’. Montreal-based Travis Taddeo brought a definitive edge to his chic, minimalist looks in his spring-summer collection at World MasterCard Fashion Week.

This regimen outlines my favorite diet tips for physical improvement and longevity. I feel the best I have ever felt in my entire life. Follow this diet and your skin will be bright, your energy level superb, and your mind clear and alert. Your cardiovascular system is improved and your digestion is impeccable. When you are faced with the choice to eat something ‘not so great’ – just imagine what your body will look like in a few weeks if you stick to the plan. I actually watch my skin (particularly my face ) grow younger before my eyes. You have everything to gain by making small adjustments….

Pedicured Toes…Hot Summer Nights in the City…

By Ramblings, UncategorizedNo Comments

I had the best time at Stillwater Spa. Facials plus Pedi’s with my babe! We did all the summer fun things, shopping in Yorkville, a cruise downtown, and capped it all off with a dinner at Sotto Sotto.

Trattoria Sotto Sotto is one of Toronto’s most magical hideaways bringing the romance of Italy to the heart of the city. We were whisked away to the back room, curtained & tucked off of the large dining room, bathed in pools of candlelight. Florentine frescoes and stonework line the candle-lit grotto where Italian romance radiates from every corner. We sampled anti-pasto, refreshing salads, delicious entrees and an abundance of fresh seafood. The Red Snapper was so yum. I love summer time in Toronto!
Things got “‘NYC Rihanna-kinda-crazy” real fast. Def not allowed to Tweet or talk about the stuff I saw last night after Sotto Sotto.

All I can say is it was an unforgettable night. Big ups to TJ! We know how to shut it down on a Tuesday.

I have a busy couple weeks ahead.
Stay cool, stay hydrated, & enjoy the sun! Live every single day to the fullest!
