Dress Up

SpringInsoHead

I’m not big on changing my “look” based on trends, but I do always like to feel like my style is evolving- constantly cycling in new pieces and inspiration. I’m always logging my current favourites on Pinterest, and every once and awhile I’ll notice an undeniable pattern based on the season. This Spring, it’s lingerie-inspired looks.

I’ve always had a soft spot for lacy underthings and soft peachy silks, but this is the first time I’ve really embraced wearing them outside in broad daylight. A robe-like jacket over a lacy romper paired with heels and statement earrings? Yes please! Major inspirations include Carrie’s NYE look in the Sex and The City movie, and almost all of the SS16 runway shows, and my favourite brands of the moment are Bully Boy, Uncuffed Leather, and CV New York (who sadly just closed their doors, so shop what’s left quick!) If you bump into me this spring you’ll likely find me in leather chokers, silky loose trench coats, slip dresses with lace bras peaking out, and all the shades of blush, cream and peach you can dream of.

Did I get dressed or just roll out of bed? You’ll never really know for sure.

To say FW16 Toronto Fashion Week was a whirlwind is an understatement. We ran in high heels through pouring rain, probably took 20 last-minute Uber rides to make it to shows, and even got placed in the coveted front row once or twice.

We’ve been to TFW shows in the past, but this season was the first time we really truly felt like a part of the chaos. We were at the tents every single day and I even got to spend some time behind the scenes at a Fashion Magazine shoot featuring looks from the shows. Below you’ll find some snaps from the shoot, plus team RAOP’s favourite looks from the FW2016 shows!

Fashion Week Faves

Mackage // Embellished Knees

Sparkly knees? Yes please! We can wait to bedazzle all of our pants for next season.

Narces // Lace & Sparkle

Romantic silhouettes and ladylike touches graced the Narces collection- you might say we fell in love.

Helder Diego // Blush Grunge

If ballerinas decided to get edgy, their outfits would likely mirror the magic at Helder Diego. We especially adored the blush leather harnesses!

Hayley Elsaesser // Bold Pop Prints

Hayley wins our hearts every season without fail, and her Big Lebowski-inspired collection this season was no exception. One of each please!

Hilary MacMillan // Soft Pinks

Nobody showcased our favourite shade quite like Hilary MacMillan, and from fluffy pink furs to flowing pink dresses, the entire presentation was pink perfection.
