    QUEENS. Elana, Bella, Septembre, Asa and Kathleen πŸ™‚ #wmcfw

    I have to admit that for the first time in a long time, I was actually really sad to see fashion week go πŸ™ Even though I was exhausted by the end of it all; the fun times totally outweighed all of that, and now I have so many beautiful memories to tide me until next season! The last day was extra special as it was Elana’s 25th birthday, so after the shows we headed over to King Street to celebrate her champagne born day! I know I’ve said it over and over, but to all of you that I got to reconnect with, as well as meet for the first time; thank you, thank you for making this World MasterCard Fashion Week SS14 a beautiful one.

    What was your favourite thing about @WMCFashionWeek SS14??

    I got to do a quick little interview with Carcia, Theresa and Telly while we were backstageΒ during World MasterCard Fashion Week; about what their favourite thing about fashion week was.

    20131024_163807Every season, despite the exhaustion and the sore feet; as soon as fashion week struts into the city, we excitedly rush to the tents without any questions asked.Β My favourite thing about fashion week was really getting to hang out with all my Β friends, and I was so blessed to make some new ones as well. There was something kinda playful in the air this season, as you can totally tell by majority of the pictures and videos that I have posted.

    Everyone was very easy going, friendly, chatty, I even got a few people to dance with me! It was awesome. We just wanted to see some good shows, while hanging out with great company, and that’s what we got. I have so many wonderful and hilarious memories from this season of World MasterCard Fashion Week, and it wouldn’t have been possible without all of you, so THANK YOU πŸ™‚ Ese, thank you for matching my crazy this season, you were great!

    *big fat kisses*

    Did I say Days three and five of World MasterCard Fashion WeekΒ SS14 were my favourite? Well, Day Four was all kinds of awesome! We hung out backstage, I got to interview of Nikki Wirthensohn of NARCES (who is just too lovely for words!), we saw the Target show which was just THE BEST (came home with the coziest of blankets!), and course we had all the fun in the world off the runway; taking pics and creating unforgettable memories. Thank you so much, you guys rock!

    More fun, more love, and more fashion from World MasterCard Fashion Week SS14! Day 3 and Day 5 were probably the most fun days for me this season. I enjoyed the shows (LOVED the Maison Matthew Gallagher Β and Christopher Bates shows!), I literally laughed till my belly ached a few times, we were #shotbysony and of course the highlights of my day were hanging out with my blogger/fashionista peeps Β new and old, during, and after the shows.
