WMCFW FW14 Day 3 #DailyOutfit

For my third FW14 WMCFW outfit, I decided to put the emphasis on a bright colored coat. I picked this amazing green coat from Zara to compliment my red hair. I think anyone can pull this look off. Zara had a handful of other colored jackets like fuchsia, bright yellow, neon blue, etc. I think wearing a bright colored coat automatically spices up your outfit!

Here I am after three full days of shows, a little tired to say the least! Had such a blast again this evening! Can’t believe it’s over for this season. Check for my full Day 3 recap coming tomorrow am! Night!! xo

WMCFW SS14 Day 3 Recap

A busy night at the tents for me last night! I’m really happy I was able to catch almost all the runway shows.

My night started off with a refreshing show by Klaxon Howl. It was nice to see a lot of music folks in the crowd for the show. I loved their “mise en scène” for the presentation of their collection. The park bench, lamppost and bicycle were all nice details. I rarely get to see a mens only line, so it was a nice change. The models were either clean shaven or had big beards (so trendy right now!) and a variety of hairstyles. I really appreciated all of Matt Robinson’s dress shirts: the colors he chose, the prints and the fabrics. I think he has a very modern take on workwear. I was happy to hear that all of his lines are made locally and by hand, which is something that I really respect. All in all, his designs represent to me the quintessential urban guy, the one who wants to dress with an edge but also be fashionable.

 

My night continued with a showing from Maison Matthew Gallagher. I loved his opening show projection – a dreamy beach! Right away I was transported into the warmth of summer. The show started off with beautiful white dresses with sheer and light fabrics. I really liked that he incorporated light prints underneath the white on certain designs. My favorite pieces came a little later on in the show, I loved the colored crop tops and fitted long skirts. I credit him for using an interesting mix of fabrics. All of the designs he presented were very feminin and suit the models really well. I liked that they didn’t overpower his designs too much with lot’s of jewelry and accessories. Promising for someone in his late 20s!

I had really been awaiting the third runway show last night: Mackage! As I’ve mentioned before, their FW13 show last season had been my favorite. Right from the beginning of their 15-minute presentation, I was in full lust mode! I particularly liked their choice of earthy colors that were so well coordinated with either shorts or skirts, simple black pumps and their stellar line of bags. I really liked their idea of adding metallic belts and neck pieces as accessories (um hello gold runway!!). Their jackets are as stunning as ever and seemed very lightweight. I loved this season’s combination trenches and also all the effortlessly cool pieces they had created for men (who said ready-to-wear and comfortable pieces couldn’t be hot!). Their crop tops and sheer tops were awesome. Props to Mackage for making bold coral orange jackets, skirts and bags. My hat goes off to these two designers again… What a sexy line! I would wear every piece in the collection! Now I better start saving up, SS14 is right around the corner!

To finish off the night, I headed to the most crowded show of the week: Joe Fresh. It’s always nice seeing so many people show up for his presentation. Elisha Cuthbert, Jake Gold, Kreesha Turner, Jian Gomeshi, were amongst the many local “celebrities” in attendance for the show last night. Props to  Joe Mimran and his team for continually picking a killer soundtrack. Last night’s show tunes included Grimes, You Say Party and Britney‘s new track “Work B**ch”. I kept bobbing my head throughout the entire show! I was delighted to see a lot of navy blue and white pieces come down the runway (I need to start wearing more navy, I know it goes really well with red hair ;)), followed by some bright orange and red pieces (a reoccurring color for the ss14!), blue snakeskin, blue camo and a few black and white looks. My favorite look was the red faux leather pants and shimmery v-neck tee. The animal print clutches also caught my eye. It’s hard not to feel excited about a Joe Fresh line because it’s accessible, affordable and always contains some really fun pieces.

All in all, a memorable night at the tents! What were your highlights from last night’s shows? Who are you excited to see tonight and the rest of the week? I sadly won’t be able to go to more WMCFW shows this season due to work commitments but I spent two very inspiring nights at the David Peacaut Square again this season!

 

WMCFW SS14 Day 3 #DailyOutfit

Last night I had the pleasure of surprising one of my best friends – Jacquie in Hamilton for her birthday. Not only is she a truly wonderful human being and friend, she’s also an incredibly talented artist and inspiration. Her band The Balconies are taking over the world. They’re the whole package. Not only can they write killer catchy songs, their live set is tight and explosive, they have the right attitude and are some of the nicest people in the biz. Mark my words, with their upcoming release Fast Motions, this band will be big! The band will be doing an album release show THIS Friday October 25th live in Toronto. If you are like me and can’t make it out, you’ll be able to stream their entire set online via BRBR at 10pm EST right here. Don’t miss it! Happy Birthday again Jacquie!!

Today is day 3 of World MasterCard Fashion Week. A bunch of shows are on the menu for this evening including Klaxon Howl, Maison Matthew Gallagher, Mackage and Joe Fresh. Who are you looking forward to seeing? Last season, Mackage had been my favorite show so I can’t wait to see their SS14 collection tonight. Check back here tomorrow for a full review of my evening!

My love for all things leopard print will be on display this evening. I adore my stunning new Zara TRF furry leopard coat. So happy I added it to my closet, it’s the perfect coat for the season. I’m also wearing my favorite hat from Topshop and my Anine Bing boots. Ready for yet another inspiring night of fashion! See you tonight?!

PS. Can’t help but hear this song play in my head while I’m walking around with this outfit today… LOL
