During my last day and Vancouver Fashion Week, we took a break from the shows and decided to wonder around downtown Vancouver! We came upon a cute little sushi place that was amazing and explored some local shops. My last moments of fashion week were bitter sweet & I cannot wait until next season.
For my outfit of the night I opted for one of my own designs again! This black midi skirt is one that I made, I first shopped around for one but nothing seem right so I decided to design my own! …ps: waterfall twist hairstyle
Fashion week is always such an exciting time, I meet and saw so many incredibly inspiring people, attended beautiful shows, and had a feel of some trends for spring/summer 2015, above all it’s a high speed pace event all week because I am still a full time student, but I still enjoyed every bit! I showed up to class already wearing my outfits with make-up and hair look because right after my class I had to drive out to Vancouver, with no time to waist!
On the third day of my fashion week adventures it was a rainy wet day, typical BC weather. I finally had the perfect opportunity to wear my new rain coat! I found it at Winners for such a good price as well. I also decided to wear one of my own designs again: tulle skirt. Check out this post HERE that I did almost a year ago! As for my hair I did a simple fishtail braid crown on one side that is pulled out to give this effect!
Fashion week seems all like a blur of fashion bliss, I loved looking back at my photo’s I took from last week because this outfit I wore is a dress that I made! & I love the color red, it was also the very first time I wore some red lipstick out. This look was so elegant that I wanted to keep my hair as simple as I could so it would not over-power my look. I went for a braided halo, I achieved this braid by braiding 2 braids & then pulling them out so they weren’t as tight, I took each braid and wrapped it around the crown of my head a secured the ends of the braid within the braid, all held by some bobby pins. Simple enough? this video helped me HERE
On day two of fashion week it was finally my chance to check out all the beauty happening backstage. And let me tell you that it is my favorite part to see all the looks being created and models getting dressed and prepped before the show! I wish I had more photo’s to show you of backstage but I saved that all for the VFW film that I hope to finally share with you at the end of this week! Also London Drugs just put out a video of VFW day two & you should check it out HERE (ps I’m in the video)

I am so hyped up this week because of NYC Fashion Week! I’ve been going to Vogue to catch all the latest shows and street styles happening this week! Also I’ve been actively pinning my heart out on Pinterest
It’s finally September and I am excited for all the fall fashion ahead of us these next few months! For this season I decide to re-vamp my style and cleaned out half my closet! It was such a huge step for me but I am ready for the “new me” and a fresh start! My fall shopping list is a plaid scarf (saw ones at Zara I am eyeing) black wool hat & a leather jacket. Also here I have included some of the styles for fall that I would love to pick up –
