Here’s a sneak peek of the outfits I wore to Fashion Week! Stay tuned for full outfit posts! Shot by: Denis Duquette

 

It’s my favorite time of year once again!  You know, the season of cozy sweaters (well it would be if it wasn’t unseasonably warm, not that I’m complaining), the changing of the leaves, lots and lots of layers, my birthday and of course all of the fabulous Fashion Weeks!  For a fashion lover, it’s pretty much like Christmas!  Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it down to Halifax for the entire week but I did manage to get down for the weekend and catch two nights of shows.  Walking into the casino this year for Atlantic Fashion Week you could clearly see that they had gone above and beyond with the venue and setup and had seriously stepped up their game!  Though it’s always a beautiful setup and a sight to be seen, this year was even better than before. It made my heart kick up a notch and pitter patter at the beauty in front of me.  Drink in hand, we headed to our seats and had the perfect reserved spot for epic Instagram stories, which as a blogger is always the main goal. The crowd was packed in there and everyone was on the edge of their seats waiting for the evening to begin.  The night was jam-packed with so many talented designers and a few of my faves were Esmé Original, Kelsey Erin, Sueno Swimwear, Veronica MacIsaac and Twigg & Feather!

 

Esmé Original created by Pamela Matheson always captures a piece of my heart with their perfectly fitted and beautifully made coats.  I can’t help but fall head over heels for the adorable prints, bold colors, high necks and the way these coats are perfectly made for a woman’s form. I mean, what’s not to love, right?!

This was my first time seeing Kelsey Erin‘s designs and I’m so happy for the introduction!  Her beautifully draped clothes were perfection and certainly had this boho lover struck in awe.

Sueno Swimwear created by Joanna Tranter was up next and she had me wishing for summer all over again.  She sure knows how to create an amazing and unique swimsuit that puts the average bathing suit to shame.  From cool cutouts to fun prints to mastering the perfect cut that makes any woman’s curves look divine. She takes an everyday bathing suit to all new heights!

Next to take the runway was Veronica MacIsaac who’s always one of my faves.  I mean, come on, anyone who works with tartan (swoon) has my entire attention from the get-go. I always think that she can’t possibly top my faves from her previous collections but she forever continues to have me drooling and weeping for more. This first mini skirt with the hanging tassels has my name written all over it!  Hello beautiful, where have you possibly been all my life? What can I say, tartan and I go together like peanut butter and jelly!

Lastly but certainly not least is one of my favorite knitwear designers of all time, Twigg & Feather designed by Jenn LeBlanc! I mean obviously, I would be in love with these perfect pieces that are screaming boho and are the epitome of comfortable and stylish.  They were made for the boho girl in mind and this boho girl simply can’t get enough and certainly cannot decide which is my fave when they’re all equally as breathtaking as the last.  So thank you, Jenn, for creating the perfect knitwear line and I cannot wait to see what your beautiful boho mind creates next!
