What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

I get really excited and frustrated when World MasterCard Fashion Week comes around, because I have no clue what to wear lol. I’m excited for all the fashion goodness, but when it comes to dressing myself, I’m a total wreck. This season, I did what I always do, BRIGHT COLOURS. I figured people won’t really notice how nice, or not so nice your outfits are, when there are nice and bright colours to distract them lol. So my approach this season was keep it simple, and O.D. on lots of colour, prints and head wraps. As for my make-up, I chose to keep that simple as well; clean face, winged eyes, and a burgundy lip. I planned on wearing my fro out this season, but the weather was crazy honey, so that wasn’t happening! Here’s what I wore during 5 of some of the the most fashionable days in Toronto icon smile What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

DAY ONE

PicsArt 1363661991401 What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

I had just gotten off work, and I was exhausted. It was cold outside, and I was feeling blue… I was also late so I had to think quickly lol

Headwrap: H&M | Dress and Earrings: Forever21 | Vintage Blazer: Black Market | Shoes: Jessica Simpson | Bangles: Costa Blanca

DAY TWO

PicsArt 1363749418174 What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

The mustard and the camo headwrap just seemed like a good idea… and as long as the colours were popping, I was cool with it icon smile What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

Headwrap: Holt Renfrew | Vintage Blazer: Black Market | Dress: H&M | Shoes: Aldo

DAY THREE PicsArt 1363833871631 What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

I had the day off and the chance to take a long and glorious nap, so I was feeling more fashion week-y on day three! Plus, this jumpsuit was TIGHT when I first bought it, so you can only imagine the JOY I felt, when I put it on and it fit! I had to rock it!

Headwrap: It’s a pashmina icon smile What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd | Vintage Jumpsuit: Black Market | Shoes: BCBG MAXAZRIA | Bangles: A market in Accra, Ghana PicsArt 1363833560331 What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

The “Big Red Bow” was a hit during fashion week, and this is the first time I’d ever tied my headwrap like this. Success! PicsArt 1363921181048 What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

I was feeling fun, flirty and girly, so this dress was a natural choice!

Headwrap: H&M | Earrings: Forever21 | Vintage Silk Dress: Black Market | Bag: Steve Madden | Wedges: Aldo PicsArt 1364017287347 What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

I really didn’t know what to wear for day five, I was tired from all the shows and events, and just needed a nap; but once I remembered that I had this dress that I bought in the UK almost a year ago, everything fell into place icon smile What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

Headwrap: Black Market | Earrings: Forever21 | Dress: Miss Selfridge | Shoes: Aldo

There you have it! What do you all think of my choices?

So fashion week came to an end on Friday, and as sad as I was to see it go, I was also extremely relieved lol. I could finally give my feet a rest, and my afternoon naps could pick up where they left off… I kid icon smile Event Recap: @WMCFashionWeek Days 3, 4, 5, and everything in between. I was really excited for this season, I guess missing the last season, had me craving all the wonderful streetstyle, and of course; I couldn’t wait to see what this round of designers had in store for us.

What did I think about World MasterCard Fashion Week F/W2013? Hmmm…. It was nice. Honestly, I was exhausted by day three and there seemed to be a certain je ne sais quoi missing this season. I didn’t bother filming any of the shows after day two because everything was going to be online anyway, and let’s be honest the quality of IMG’s video is way better than mine icon smile Event Recap: @WMCFashionWeek Days 3, 4, 5, and everything in between.

However, despite the exhaustion I loved catching up with and meeting Toronto’s fashionistas, and I’m always inspired by the designers who show their collections. I wasn’t thrilled by majority of the collections, but I’m always inspired by the courage that these designers have to show their collections, to hundreds of very picky and very fashionable fashionistas icon smile Event Recap: @WMCFashionWeek Days 3, 4, 5, and everything in between.

My Favourite shows from Days 3, 4 and 5?

  • I made a few best dressed and beauty lists, which was kinda flattering I can’t lie icon smile Event Recap: @WMCFashionWeek Days 3, 4, 5, and everything in between. Thanks to GLOW Magazine, Fashion Magazine, BlogTO, and everybody else that made this lil girl feel a lil special icon smile Event Recap: @WMCFashionWeek Days 3, 4, 5, and everything in between.

  • I got to catch up with my fellow blogger fashionistas who were all looking beyond FLY honey! *two snaps*
  • * The street style. Despite the crazy cold weather, Toronto fashionistas were not going to be swayed, because they BROUGHT it through wind, rain, snow and shine!

There was a great deal of black on the runway this season… I’m a sucker for bright colours and bold prints so all the black leather, fur etc. obviously this wasn’t my thing, but I will say that all the collections were really well made, and the attention to detail was ON POINT. Two very fashionable thumbs up.

I can’t wait for World MasterCard Fashion Week S/S2014 because there’s bound to be lots of colour! Woohoooo :) A big congratulations to all the designers who showed this season, I can only wish I had even half of your courage to follow my dreams!

Until next season icon smile Event Recap: @WMCFashionWeek Days 3, 4, 5, and everything in between.
