Maybe by Sarah Catalfo

I have experience coordinating fashion shows so when I came across an ad on craigslist at the outset of the summer, looking for PR and Styling assistance for an up and coming Toronto fashion designer I immediate jumped on the opportunity. The line is called Maybe by Sarah Catalfo. Sarah (the designer, duh!) has the experience designing for Canadian music artist and Juno award winner LIGHTS. Sarah actually designed the dress that LIGHTS wore when accepting her Juno for best new Canadian artist. Sarah will be debuting her line at the Rivoli (334 Queen Street West, Toronto) on August 13th. I would love for all of you to see this designers fabulous take on metalics, colour, body suits, and skirts.
An added bonus is that my talented friend Lauren Elle will be opening the show with a big bang. She is a successful music artist that brings charisma and energy to the stage. I would not suggest missing this event. For the inside scoop on Elle check her out on myspace:

Summer Romper

When the summer weather is unbearably hot I sometimes have trouble expressing my style. Not because the heat gets to my brain but because I usually want to wear as little as possible and my personal style is usually achieve by layering, accessorizing and matching various garments. Despite this, I have found the perfect hot summer day outfit that is light and cute. This simple onesie (also known as a romper) can be dressed up with gladiator sandles and a leather jacket to make a more complete outfit OR you can wear it as is with a pair of sunglasses, sandles and maybe a summer hat and you are ready to rock and roll. This adorable piece can be found at American Apparel.
Keepin' it cool in the summer heat... xx

Fashion District

Friday I spent the day in Toronto's very own Fashion DIstrict. This area is located between the Spadina Avenue and King Street intersection in downtown Toronto. This area is filled with fashion wholesalers, importers and exporters and many other industry leaders. I was picking up scarves from V. Fraas Scarves They generously donated a scarf gift basket that will be raffled away at an upcoming fashion show that I am helping to organize --> which I will tell you more about soon. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. xx

Pride Fashions

Last Sunday we celebrated the end of Pride week with the Pride Parade, which took place in the city core of Toronto. While it was a rainy and gloomy afternoon I still ventured downtown with my friends...the sky ended up clearing and it turned into a nice day. In addition to taking in all of the excitement of the parade floats and the pride culture itself, I was busy scoping the scene for the fashion trendsetters. One of the many reasons why I love fashion is because of the ability to project an image and express whatever the individual wearer wants throuh their clothes (or lack of) and accessories. Some of these outfits are mainstream while others are sub-culture specific. Regardless of which group you belong to there are fashions for everyone!!

Over Size

This over-sized beach bag is a great accessorizor to any cute summer ensemble. It is also incredible for cottaging or a day lounging on the beach. Whoever said Size-doesn't matter... think again, when it comes to this bag, size is the only thing that matters.

Summer Breeze

Yesterday I was on my way to a professional meeting wearing dress pants and a blouse...I know this sounds very typical and boring, but when it comes to fashion I do not usually do typical or boring. In addition to the blahhh-ness of this outfit it was 32 degrees in Toronto and I was swealtering. My mom asked why I didn't wear something a little bit more summer-y and I replied: "I don't know how to look professional and dress for summer weather at the same time".... She suggested that I try a full coverage dress (one that is not too short nor too tight) with some shoes that provide height and elegance. She then offered me a very stylish, cute and trendy hat that would set me apart from the rest. This outfit solved my problems: I was comfortable, a lot cooler in temperature and looking the way I like to present myself. The outfit was also well taken at my meeting... the head honcho said "I like your hat" and "boy, you look adorable". Looking professional doesn't always have to be boring...just be sure you know the audience that you are dressing for! Happy wardrobing.
